Sportsbook News Video update by Natalie Rydstrom
Sportsbook Review news host Natalie Rydstrom gives an SBR Industry News update for Friday, January 8.
Topics discussed in today's news broadcast include the recent sports betting dispute leveled against online bookie Rivalo, who confiscated $1,370 from a winning punter on the very vague grounds that he violated their terms and conditions.
Rivalo essentially threw the entire rulebook at the sports bettor and declined to provide specifics on his infraction.
Whenever online sportsbooks decide they are not paying player winnings, there needs to be a clear and just reason to protect the sanctity of the industry and the common trust that bets booked will be paid, except in clear and compelling instances of fraud, multi-accounting, bearding, or other obvious indicators of foul play.
Rivalo is a D- rated website which is listed on the worst sportsbook blacklist.
Natalie also discusses recent sportsbook disputes submitted by players of bookies TonyBet (SBR rating D) and 1XBet (SBR rating D).
Players who would like Natalie's assistance mediating sportsbook complaints are encouraged to submit a sportsbook complaint form.
