Montenegro e-Gaming regulator strips Exbinog's license, says player
Update: 11/29, Exbinog has claimed that the Montenegro e-Gambling licensor is a company acting without the authority of the Montenegro Gambling Commission which is under the regulation of the Montenegro Government. Exbinog has claimed that they are in the process of obtaining a government issued license, though their website already lists that they possess such a license. SBR has asked the betting site about the discrepancy, and the status of outstanding player complaints which previously went unaddressed.
Online sportsbook Exbinog.com has been stripped of their gaming license by the Montenegro e-Gambling Commission.
The slow-pay sportsbook continues to falsely advertise on their website that they are licensed by the Montenegro Commission.
Sportsbook Review reported earlier this month that an Exbinog player has been waiting over five months for payment of 8,300 PLN.
Prior to that slow-pay report, an Exbinog player claimed that €1,386 was confiscated by the online sportsbook. He only received his starting deposit back from the sportsbook.
Sportsbook Review had been advising players to pursue their complaints with the Montenegro e-Gambling Commission - who previously licensed the sports betting site to operate - due to Exbinog's refusal to address player disputes.
One such player has shared the following email he received from the licensor:
Montenegro e-Gambling Commission: "We would like to inform you, that we terminated the cooperation with the operator of exbinog.com. Unfortunately we can't help you regarding your complaint. However we will force the operator of the website to remove any kind of misleading information from the website, which refers anything about Montenegrin jurisdiction or Montenegrin company."
Exbinog has been assessed with an initial rating of F pending the resolution of the player complaints and the updating of their website to reflect the loss of their gaming license.
