BetOnStars(SBR rating F-) – The proposed deal to rescue this failed sportsbook

has fallen through according to their previous promoter; TheOnlineWire. While BetOnStars was operating, management as well as their promoter publicly criticized SBR for their poor SBR rating and SBR’s skepticism that they were not simply another scam. The BetOnStars failure is yet another reminder that weak sportsbooks and scams abound in this unregulated industry. Players are advised to carefully research a sportsbook before sending money.

SBR Bill Dozer reports:

BetOnStars (SBR rating F-) players hoping for bailout offer. The sportsbook has been off-line for over one week and delinquent on withdrawals for over a month. SBR has not received confirmation of a payout since our previous report on 5/05/06. The sportsbook has shut down communication with players. SBR to management’s personal phone lines have not been answered.

SBR Bill Dozer reports:

BetOnStars (SBR rating F) unable to process withdrawal requests; still accepting deposits. The sportsbook tells SBR they expect to have a resolution to their financial problems by Tuesday when they will either be purchased, or allow another sportsbook to take over player accounts. BOS has been unable to fulfill substantial withdrawal requests over the last three weeks but some players have been receiving partial payment. Accounting states that they are prioritizing payouts by the amount the client has deposited. 

SBR Bill Dozer reports

The sportsbook relocated to its new office on 2/08/06 and management assured SBR that this would be the company’s turning point. BetonStars has since experienced persistent technical difficulties and players continue to report having to wait for their withdrawals. Customer service manager, John, recently left the company to join Bet4Aces(SBR rating D-).

SBR Bill Dozer reports:

BetOnStars(SBR rating D) off-line since Friday; SBR visits office. SBR has verified that BetonStars is staffed and is taking wagers. Management tells SBR that their IQ-L software service was discontinued on Friday and they are in the process of implementing ASI’s software package. The sportsbook is unable to process payouts during this down time. Players can reach customer service by calling 1-800-799-6353.

SBR Bill Dozer reports:

BetonStars(SBR rating D-) phones and livechat down during office move. The migration began two days after the Super Bowl which is the most common time for a failing book to pull the plug. The fast-busy phone signal had players concerned. BetonStars has allowed SBR to visit and take pictures during the setup of their new office.
The sportsbook blames nervous clients for emptying its Neteller merchant account. One player has been waiting for a $1500 Neteller payout since the weekend. Management tells SBR that they expect to have a funded Neteller account, as well as a working phone system tomorrow.
2/9/2006 (3:37:57 PM) Update: Player paid in full. 

SBR Bill Dozer reports:

BetonStars(SBR rating D-) processes withdrawals for two players who have both waited over one week; the sportsbook reports being up to date on all withdrawals. SBR will continue to monitor pending requests and confirm payments with players as the sportsbook talks of moving their office prior to Super Bowl weekend. 

SBR Bill Dozer reports:

BetonStars(SBR rating D-) tells SBR they are waitng for a $10,000 deposit to clear its Neteller merchant account in order to pay slow-paid bettors. When asked how they planned to pay players beyond this relatively small sum, management replied: “We will have enough left over to pay other players”. BetonStars players now fear that the book will rely on a profitable Super Bowl from the few clients that remain. SBR and slow-paid players were originally assured that this latest wire would clear on January 24th.

One player reports to SBR:
“I spoke with the owner of BetonStars – Johnny.  He told me that he had not been properly informed of the coversations I had had with Jay, and that he would personally put an end to this problem.  I am taking his promise at face value.
He assured me that I would be paid out entirely by this coming Monday – $X,XXX this Friday and the remainder on Monday….”
