Update: SBR finds the player likely defrauded Win4Real.
Win4Real (SBR rating C-) confiscates $90,000 from player. The player began playing with Win4Real in the fall of 2009. Over the course of a year, the player made roughly $10,000 in deposits.

In late 2009, Win4Real suspended the player's balance and locked his account. Win4Real has not provided comment to the player or SBR on why the player's balance was seized. On 5/28/2009, SBR reported that Win4Real and sister sportsbooks Sportsbetting.com (SBR rating C-) and Racebook.com (SBR rating C-) confiscated $20,000 from a winning player with accounts at each outfit.
On July 29th, Sportsbetting.com (SBR Rating C-) disabled a player's account for what was described as a "random security check." The player had deposited $1500 via prepaid debit card from July 24th to July 26th, in three different transactions. Over a 3 day period, the player made approximately 30 wagers before the account was disabled. Sportsbetting.com asked the player to provide ID documents to verify the player's identity. After the requested documents were supplied and confirmed as received, the player was then asked to fax the back of driver license, which was sent on August 3rd. Since that time, the player has sent several emails inquiring as to why the account is still locked, which has approximately $2000 in it. Sportsbetting.com has been the source of communication and unjust confiscation complaints. The player has been sent only automated email responses and remains locked out of the account. SBR will update this report when Sportsbetting.com addresses the complaint. | Forum: Sportsbetting.com confiscation.
Sportsbetting.com, Racebook, and Win4Real confiscate player's
winnings and deposits
The player opened accounts at all three sportsbooks in June of 2008, depositing and playing consistently for five months. In November his accounts, which showed a profit of approximately $20,000, were frozen. The sportsbook cited a rule saying the player could only have an account at one sportsbook in the Sportsbetting.com Group. SBR has advised the sportsbook to pay the player for all wagers it booked since the player's funds were at risk. Bookmakers should have the ability to limit a player's action but should not retroactively void winning bets. Thus far Sportsbetting (SBR rating C-), Win4Real (SBR rating C-) and Racebook (SBR rating C-) have not agreed to pay the player for winning wagers, or even the winnings on the first of the three accounts joined. $9,500 in player deposits remain in possession of the sportsbook without an expla

Win4Real (SBR rating C-) to credit player for no-actioned proposition wager
SBR has contacted Win4Real management about the complaint reported yesterday. The sportsbook's General Manager states that no-actioning the wagers was a mistake by the wagering department and all players who wagered the under 2.5 free throws will be credited.
Win4Real offered a proposition wager on the total amount of free throws made by NBA basketball player, Aaron Brooks, in a single game. The player took the under on a total set of 2.5 free throws made. Aaron Brooks played in the game and did not make or attempt a free throw. The wagering ticket provided by the player shows only the stipulation that the player must play. Win4Real
, a sportsbook in the Sportsbetting.com (SBR rating C-)
Group, gave an illogical response to the player's complaint:
As per the update from our Grading department, the Free Throws under 2.5 indicates that Aaron Brooks should at least score below 2.5 but not zero (Under 2.5 indicates that the score must be less than 2.5 and Zero is not considered under 2.5).
You must have notice that Aaron Brooks did not score the Free Throws, which indicates that the score is Zero and hence the bet has been graded as Noaction.
SBR has inquired with management on the player's behalf. Bettors who were not paid on a bet of under on the total free throws by Aarron Brooks are invited to contact SBR
Racebook (SBR rating C-) tells Sportsbook Review it has returned $1,000 in confiscated funds to player. The refund represents a deposit made to Racebook.com in 2008. The sportsbook originally told the player that the funds were not returned because he broke the rule of having more than one account within the Sportsbetting.com Family of sportsbooks. The player had accounts at sister books Sportsbetting.com (SBR rating C-) and Win4Real (SBR rating C-) that were in good standing and inactive. SBR is seeking more information on why the deposit was not initially returned and if there were other non-bonus funds in the account. SBR will reassess Sportsbetting.com after pursuing further details from the company.

The player deposited $1,000 and won an additional $200. The sportsbook told the player that because he previously had an account at sister sportsbooks Sportsbetting.com (SBR rating C-)
and Win4Real (SBR rating C-)
he is not eligible to have an account at Racebook. Racebook
has confiscated his deposit and winnings citing their terms and conditions which state that accounts at more than one Sportsbetting.com Group book are not allowed. The player states that his accounts at Sportsbetting.com
are in good standing and are inactive. Racebook.com's betting limits were not exceeded. SBR Dispute Manager Lou has asked the sportsbook to address the confiscation claim of both deposits and winnings. On May 5th, Racebook sportsbook agreed
to credit a different player for deposited funds confiscated in 2008.

The sportsbook management states it applied the punishment after the player's limits were lowered at a third book in the family, Sportsbetting.com (SBR rating C-). The bettor had an account at Sportsbetting.com, had his betting limits reduced, and subsequently deposited and won at both Win4Real and Racebook. The player was aware that he could make similar bets at Win4Real and Racebook and placed the same wagers for different amounts at all three sportsbooks in a three day period. The amount risked per play exceeded the limit given to him at Sportsbetting.com. SBR has asked Sportsbetting.com to return the player's deposits of $800. SBR's position is that the sportsbook should not benefit from the player's actions.
The Sportsbetting.com family of books currently has a rule stating that only one sportsbook within the book's family can be utilized. SBR will address the secondary issue of if the sportsbook had this rule in place when the player made these deposits. He won $6,400 in wagers that were not honored. Under normal circumstances a sports betting company with multiple brands is expected to honor all wagers before identifying a player it does not want to service at its sportsbooks.
