Fiestabet confiscates players' winnings citing circumvented limits; downgraded from C to D+
Fiestabet has voided wagers placed in two accounts citing circumvented limits and claiming the two players wagered on many of the same plays at the same time. SBR has argued that the sportsbook should not have the opportunity to void wagers after the result. The sportsbook has no evidence suggesting the accounts are not operated by two valid account holders. SBR also stated that it is not uncommon for players to handicap games together or follow published plays, and the sportsbook is welcome to limit or close the accounts at any time. Fiestabet has also refused to pay the two players a split of the maximum wager allowed for one account. The complaint is not uncommon. Sportsbooks looking for reasons not to pay big winners have unjustly cited syndicate play. | Poster discussion: Fiestabet Huge Problem
