The player says he provided a copy of his credit card, a bank statement, birth certificate and national ID card in addition to paying for some of the documents to be notarized.

Seven years ago Canbet broke into the top ten SBR recommended list of online sportsbooks. The Australia based operation had been a long-time member of the Top 20 list, widely regarded among off-shore bettors as a solid out that was worthy of being on any player’s short list. Canbet reached a rating as high as A-, earned on May 14th 2005. They maintained that mark impressively for four years.
Then everything changed. Bonus terms were retroactively changed, payouts were delayed, accounts were confiscated, and even winning wagers were canceled. Following IASbet's sale of Canbet on May 13th 2009 to Yin King Investments Ltd., Canbet has only continued its slide of poor management and player relations.
Here are some of the more disturbing unresolved complaints against Canbet. | View full report (written by Lou Moretti)
May 22nd 2009: Canbet cancels 27 correlated NCAA football parlays
Canbet cancels 27 correlated NCAAF parlays the day after the bets were correctly settled in players account. Canbet maintains their software has never accepted correlated parlays where the pointspread exceeds 33% of the total, stating the string of bets were accepted due to ''operator error''. Canbet management has stated that they believe the player was aware of this as he proceeded to bet more than his average stake size and also deposit in larger amounts to take advantage of these plays. | View more here
Canbet’s posted rules on correlated players actually make an argument on the player’s behalf:
Canbet:[quote]Any multiple made up of more than one selection from the same event will be deemed a related contingency. i.e. Alan Shearer to score 1st & Newcastle Utd to win; Denver -7.5 pts and Denver to win the game. The only exception to the above is in North American sports where sides and totals can make up a multiple bet. "[/quote]

On September 22nd SBR reported that InternationalAllSports (SBR rating B) had closed a player's account while an investigation was being conducted. The player had a balance of €5,000 at the time his account was disabled. Today IASbet has addressed SBR with their stance concerning the player.
IASbet:[quote]1. This player has multiple accounts linked to him via shared environments which is against our standard policies
2. He is part of an Austrian syndicate with 3 or more linked parameters including the betting patterns
3. They have not used the bonus in the spirit it was awarded and therefore we do have the right to remove the bonus and any winnings associated to it as contested funds
4. Documents received from one of the linked accounts were rejected as being suspicious
5. Our terms also state that a player will forfeit his entire bonus if he initiates a withdrawal before the bonus turnover is met. In this instance that is what the player tried to do and his withdrawal was rejected.
In light of this we have opted to refund his entire deposit amount of €4000.00 and remove the bonus including winnings associated with this.[/quote]
IASbet has refused to provide specific evidence supporting any of their assertions to protect screening techniques. The player has adamantly denied any wrongdoing.
