EasyStreet (SBR rating D) is sending promo emails to players offering a 35% cash signup bonus. While the email is titled "Attention all Greek and BetJamaica Clients", the opening lines also address former BetEd, Nine.com and VIP Sports players. EasyStreet's promo mailer states that the sportsbook has no intent of leaving the US market.
Prior to each football season, all online sportsbooks begin to pump up their marketing and bonuses in an attempt to retain or reel in customer business for the coming pigskin year. Players are advised to avoid lowly rated sportsbooks with histories of unfairly dealing with players. In addition to the already established sportsbooks, many fly-by night scam attempts are made by rogue operators in possession of industry mailing lists. While EasyStreet Sports is not designated as a blacklisted sportsbook, its poor rating is largely attributed to the theft of $46,000 from a winning casino player accused of robot play. | EasyStreet spams former sportsbook players

SBR's own Judie Russell interviewed the now infamous poster, "cory1111", regarding his $46,000 win at EasyStreet Sports casino. EasyStreet (SBR rating D+) is refusing to pay the Video Poker winnings, claiming that the player violated its rule on artificial intelligence play.
EasyStreet believes that the player used software to automatically make his decisions in the "Jacks or Better" game. EasyStreet maintains this position despite allegedly contradictory statements from casino software creator, Digital Gaming Solutions. DGS' owner, Chris Davis, reportedly spoke with the player and personally indicated that no abnormalities were found from analyzing his game sessions.
It is unclear if EasyStreet
is in possession of evidence to justify confiscating the player's winnings. Thus far they have only argued that a human could not average so many hands per hour without deviating from good to perfect strategy.
It has been noted from some readers that the popular Jacks or Better game does not require an overly mathematical mind to play perfectly. In addition, EasyStreet had the "hold winning hands" option enabled, so that if a pair of jacks or greater were dealt, those cards would automatically be held so that the player could choose to draw only the remaining cards.
The second argument raised by EasyStreet is that the player hit three
royal flushes in his winning run. EasyStreet has attempted to discredit the legitimacy of the play by pointing out that the player hit three royal flushes in a small sample size. EasyStreet only quoted the amount of hands played in winning sessions, not all sessions, thus no accurate statistical analysis can be performed.
SBR's mediator Justin7 is preparing a new video review on this dispute. Justin intends to focus on the RX Forum's decision to side with their forum advertiser, EasyStreet Sportsbook. Justin's previous video on this sportsbook casino complaint can be found in this EasyStreet casino winner dispute
