Online Sportsbook AmericasBookie accused of poaching players

1Vice Sportsbook (SBR rating D+) forwarded marketing email to Sportsbook Review showing that their former host was not only marketing to its player base but also mentioning the players current sportsbook by name. During a recent 1Vice Sportsbook review by SBR, it was confirmed that 1Vice left the RDG Corp group at the start of this year on January 2, 2014. It was noted that 1Vice was said to have outdrawn the resources provided by RDG Corp but that the split was otherwise amicable in nature.  The 1Vice manager forwarded email to SBR showing that an employee of AmericasBookie (SBR rating D+) of the RDG Corp family contacted a player making the direct pitch, using the 1Vice name in an attempt to solicit a deposit from the player. A redacted version of this email is visible in the full report of this article.

It is not uncommon for sportsbooks to market to other businesses customers, but is considered a breach of etiquette to name the other sportsbook inside of these emails or suggest by proxy that the player information has been passed on. SBR urges players to do their homework before accepting a marketing email at face value; often, the veracity of unsolicited mailers can questionable.
