PlayTheScore (SBR rating F) now offline. Hopes for bettors owed by this seemingly scam book are dwindling. PTS General Manager, Omar has told his customers that the book is still operating as a credit shop yet it has been unwilling to pay over $80k to a group of post-up players. If PTS decides to leave with player funds they would become a prime candidate to once again target players under a new name. It is not uncommon for a sportsbook to run from its debt and attempt to start over with a new brand.

PlaytheScore (SBR rating F) continues to book bets without funding. Those who have asked for payouts have had their accounts frozen as management was forced to admit that they can not pay potential winnings. Players who are unaware of the situation are apparently able to continue to place phone wagers. SBR was on hold for management when the clerk asked if we would call back saying, "We need this phone line to take bets". The clerk assured us that PTS was still booking wagers.

Both TheOffShoreWire and MajorWager are reporting that this operation is near failure. This book was touted by a few obscure forum sites and should serve as a warning that players should be wary of taking advice from posters and forums who may actually be in on the scam. The promise of credit, large bonuses and no juice betting lines are some of the many tell-tell signs of a possible scam.
