Mansion88 (unrated) has limited a player with 5000 in rollover to fill to 5 maximum wagers. The player's balance is 1800. SBR is following up with Mansion88.
Mansion88 Player: [quote]Mansion88 have limited my account to £5 max wager and I have a rollover of over £5000 on the account. This means I have to place over 1000 wagers of £5 before I can withdraw. They ignored my e-mail and live chat is very unhelpful.
Please can you help me - I've got £1800 sitting doing nothing there since I can't withdraw. I want them to either remove the bonus and payout the rest of my funds or increase the limits back to £100 max wager [/quote]

Mansion (SBR rating B-) no longer offering traditional sportsbook wagering; directs users to betting exchange.
02.09.2007 (11:08 PM CST)
BetBug (SBR rating C+) is owned by Trident Gaming, which sold Gamebookers (SBR rating B-) to PartyGaming in August of last year. Despite innovative download-required software and a 2006 marketing campaign, BetBug was unable to capture targeted U.S. business and compete with exhange-style books, Mansion and Matchbook.
BetBug.com: While we continue to believe that BetBug’s true peer-to-peer software does abide by all major Federal gaming laws in the United States, the current legal environment seriously deters our chances of success. We hope to be able to reintroduce the software to the public at a later date.

Mansion (SBR rating B-) no longer accepting deposits from players residing in the United States. Players currently holding a balance may continue to wager in the betting exchange.

Three Mansion (SBR rating B-) players file slow-pay complaints. Mansion has blamed technical issues and a bank change for the delay.
Player (12/11/2006): I’m waiting on a $5800+ payout on my account from Mansion.com. The request was made last Tuesday. On Friday I called to check on the status, they told me I needed to forward my Swift number for the transaction to be processed. Then on Friday they told me it was going to be processed today (monday). Today, I contact them and they tell me the delay is due to them changing banks - and that I should receive the money by the end of the week. The site says it normally takes 2 business days. I am very nervous.
Mansion switched from Natwest Bank, an RBS Group company that owns other banks based in the United States, to German-based Wirecard Bank AG. Players’ best option may be Neteller as Mansion begins working with its new financial service.

Mansion (SBR rating B-) closes its sportsbook and casino to players residing in the US. Mansion’s most popular offering is its low-margin sports exchange betting platform, which will remain open for all clients. However, management tells SBR that they will no longer employ market makers to seed the exchange and there may be a substantial decline in wagering activity.

SBR has downgraded Mansion to B- due to customer service issues, reduced offerings, and complaints of canceled wagers without alerting players through email.

The book tells SBR they have hired additional staff, and plan to be current with player inquiries and software issues this week.

Mansion (SBR rating B) steers players toward "exchange style" sports betting. Players entering the sportsbook today were stunned to see Mansion offering full vig prices. Reduced pricing will now be offered only in the betting exchange as their traditional sportsbook division is phased out. It is likely that exchange-style wagering will be Mansion’s sole betting offering by the NFL regular season.
The exchange functions much like a normal sportsbook except players have the ability to see how much money the book will take at the current odds before the line is moved. Matchbook (SBR rating B-) uses a similar betting interface. Below is the response sent to players who inquired about the changes:
"Thank you for your inquiry. There has been a change in pricing offered on our Sportsbook and you may be wondering how to find the same value you have come to expect from MANSION. The good news is, MANSION is still offering the same value by posting these prices through our Sports Exchange.We have made modifications to our exchange interface to make it more user friendly for customers who are comfortable buying from a sportsbook. MANSION Sportsbook, like many other MANSION Sports Exchange members, will offer our low margin / high limit odds through the new Sports Exchange interface. If you are interested only in “buying” a position on an event, the Sports Exchange is simply a new sportsbook interface. If you would like to have a position on an event at odds that you do not see offered on the Sports Exchange then you may want to join the many MANSION Members who have discovered the benefits of acting as a “seller”. Try our Sports Exchange – you’ll be glad you did. If you require any assistance we are here to help 24/7. Thank you for betting with MANSION.MANSION Customer Service"

Problem plagued FutureBet books such as SportsbookUSA earn an upgrade off the Black List to D-. This is an improving situation but still a high risk.
Mansion raised from C to B-. This upgrade highlights our confidence in Mansion management.
MajorBetting raised from D+ to C-. The unusual and increasing rating spread between MajorBetting at C- and their management company, BetRoyal rating of D, highlights SBR’s opinion that players are actually safer playing at the managed book.
Internet1x2 lowered to F-. We continue to work with players to get them paid. Unfortunately it appears that we no longer can be an effective intermediary as the book shows no concern for the continuing No-Pays.
Canbet upgraded from B+ to A-. It was January 26, 2004 when Canbet was last an ’A’ rated book. IAS, the parent comapnay, has worked hard to improve their product and player feedback clearly indicates they are making strong progress.

Mansion now holds a respectable C+ SBR rating and is by far the most interesting new sportsbook of the class of 2004. We continue to remain somewhat cautious on Mansion despite the high level of financing from a millionaire cigarette tycoon from Asia and a capable management staff. Mansion has taken aim at the two toughest competitors in the industry in Pinnacle (SBR rating A+) and BetFair (SBR rating A+). History is not on the side of books that take on those two goliaths, however Mansion could be the exception.
