VIPSports.eu Wagering Dispute Update: Funds yet to be paid
On August 20, Sportsbook Review reported that online sportsbook VIPSports.eu (SBR rating D-) agreed to pay the player from the infamous NHL prop bet winnings dispute.
A player wagered $350 on Justin Williams winning the Conn Smythe award two years ago, and allegedly circumvented wagering limits imposed on his account.
The sportsbook was scheduled to pay the player via Skrill, but has yet to do so. The player confirmed not receiving the payment to Sportsbook Review.
SBR has asked VIPSports.eu to provide a date that the player can expect to receive payment, and will update when the matter is officially resolved once and for all.
The complaint centered around the sportsbook management believing that the player intentionally circumvented "wise guy limits" placed on his account. A screen capture was provided to SBR that displayed the player's wagering limits for prop bets; somehow, the software malfunctioned and allowed the player to wager $350 on the NHL prop bet, which was a higher amount than the sportsbook accepted for NHL money line bets from this player.
The sportsbook originally settled the dispute for 50% of the disputed winnings, but finally agreed to pay the full value of the ticket.
Online sportsbook VIPSports.eu is part of the BTG Global NV family of sportsbooks.
