BetDOS (SBR rating D+) management reports parting ways with scam sportsbook owner
BetDos was identified as a sportsbook using turnkey service provider MXA Systems in March. Shortly after discussing their rating with Sportsbook Review and learning more about Max, the owner of MXA and the scams he has been involved in, BetDOS reported moving to BLR software and their own server and database. Max was the host, and in some cases owner, of scam books such as DunHill Casino (SBR rating F), Atlantisbets (SBR rating F), BetBones (SBR rating F) and PremiumBettor (SBR rating F).
BetDOS enters SBR rating guide at D-
BetDOS enters SBR rating guide at D- BetDos is serviced by “Max,” who formerly hosted and serviced scam sportsbooks AtlantisBets and DunHillCasino, and owned and operated BetBones and Premiumbettor. Max now uses his resources to service new sportsbooks–one being BetFirstClass (SBR rating D). BetFirstClass ownership was unaware of BetDos but the sportsbooks share the same IP address and database server. A username from one of the sportsbooks will also work on the other book’s website. BetDos has not yet answered SBR’s inquiries. As with all new turnkey sportsbooks, BetDos should be avoided.

Premiumbettor (SBR rating F) closes; stiffs player $17,500
The player joined Premium after receiving a free winning pick by someone posing as a professional handicapper over the phone. The tout told the bettor that he had more plays and asked him to deposit $5,000 with PremiumBettor where the player would put in the bets given to him by the pro capper. The bettor was initially told that a $5,000 deposit would allow the duo to access a line of credit of $30,000. After depositing the first $5,000 the player was conned into depositing an additional $5,000 in $2,500 increments for “fees.” The account grew to $17,500 before the website went off-line. The tout pretended to be surprised by what happened and a victim himself, even advising the player to read about this scam gaming group at SportsBookReview.com. PremiumBettor was a BetBones scam operation. Also off-line is sister site UbetAndWin (SBR rating F) and GamblingDogLine (SBR rating F).
HiRollerbets (SBR rating F) wagering off-line
Sister sportsbook, UwinBets (SBR rating F) is also unaccessible but claims server problems as the reason. “Due to server maintance your account history is not available online, all wagers will be taken over the phone for the next couple of hours. we apologize for the inconvenience. Uwinbet Management”
This is another reason for bettors to avoid sportsbooks in the BetBones Group.
