A BetBtw (unrated) player writes in with a payment complaint. The player deposited funds with BetBtw and increased his balance to more than $9,000. The player tells Sportsbook Review that he has been owed $9,135 since July 25th, 2011.
BetBtw shares the same web server as BetTheWorld.com, formerly rated D+ by SBR. BetTheWorld ceased offering sportsbook wagering to customers and transformed into a fantasy wagering site. BetBtw shares the same web server as credit sites BetUniversal, 247WebToday and AgentsReport.com. SBR attempted to contact BetBtw using two known phone numbers—800-689-9922 and 800-816-0751; in both instances BetBtw terminated the call after SBR explained the call was in regards to a player payout complaint.
Following SBR's attempts to reach management, BetBtw locked the player's account. The player provided SBR with a screenshot showing his outstanding balance. SBR will update this sportsbook report.
BetBTW players with payout complaints are asked to submit a sportsbook complaint form, or dial 1-830-255-4677 during normal business hours to speak with a Sportsbook Review dispute analyst.

NorthBet.com (SBR rating C-) is an invite-only sportsbook located in San Jose, Costa Rica. SBR confirmed that a number of former BetUS (SBR rating D+) managers are behind the operation. Earlier this year, NorthBet paid $15,000 to a player that allegedly forged a cash-transfer receipt by increasing the amount one zero. NorthBet communicated with SportsbookReview throughout the dispute. The decision to pay the player vice refunding the actual deposit was made to avoid any unwanted press while the sportsbook was in its infancy, and due to the player legitimately increasing the balance credited via his casino play. NorthBet claims to be a stand-alone company that operates a niche
business model, with plans to expand its offerings to include fantasy
football for customers, as well as a dedicated mobile platform aimed at
the latest smart phone browsers. NorthBet's marketing team operates out
