Sportsbook.com new policy: One pending payout max
Sportsbook.com US (SBR rating D-) is now enforcing a new policy that limits players to a maximum one pending payout request. The most available and popular payout method for users takes an average of six to eight weeks to be paid. One user reports that he has a balance of $86,730 and calculates that it would take years to finally receive payment, not to mention at $40 a pop.
Sportsbook.com users have long complained of lengthy payout times. Professional players have oft defended the sportsbook due to their at times opinionated numbers and willingness to accept action, especially on derivatives and other markets. The sportsbook has generally been favored by players that have no qualms with having parts of their bankroll tied up for months at a time, provided they believe they will eventually be paid.
Sportsbook.com is one of the most visible and recognized online sportsbooks serving the American market. The URL alone is worth tens of millions of dollars, if not more. Despite the advantages working in their favor, the brand's management has never been particularly concerned with improving their service for the casual player. Good marketing is more of a priority of good service, such has been the case with the group for years.
