BetEmpire (Empire Sportsbook) to close; won't pay players?
SuperiorBook (SBR rating D+)
has issued a press release titled "SuperiorBook.com- Acquires Betempire.com."
The release states that players will be required to bet their Empire Sportsbook (SBR rating C-)
balances 15 times through before withdrawing and calls the account transfer a "bailout program
." SBR is attempting to reach both Superior and Empire contacts to find out the status of player accounts. Up until now, Superiorbook has been a licensee brand serviced and controlled by BetEmpire, using its accounting, hosting and BetEmpire's proprietary software, SportsPulse. It is unknown if BetEmpire is attempting to keep player balances as the NBA season ends by shifting balances within its own products, or, if the book is unable to pay and the former white label partner will carry on. | See Superiorbook press release
