This sportsbook is also offline
ClicknGamble has been downgraded from D- to F on the SBR blacklist of sportsbooks. The site was part of the Capilleira group which includes several sportsbooks that have gone offline. The poor grade is due to soliciting players and then refusing to settle substantial winning balances. We suggest you consider alternative trusted operators which can be identified on our list of best sportsbooks. Here is our ClicknGamble review which explains the poor rating.
ClicknGamble is now offline but when it was an active sportsbook, there was no formal welcome bonus. The brand had a number of domains including Clickngamble.ag. This site was hosted in Antigua, the location for other Capilleira brands. New players were enticed to ClicknGamble by free credits which were akin to the welcome offers with reputable books which are described at SBR’s sportsbook bonuses page.
Yet, registered players with ClicknGamble had no ongoing promotions to enhance their betting experience. The site did not feature reload bonuses which are popular with other sportsbooks. Bonuses are a key part of marketing a site in a competitive market. Even without evidence of ClicknGamble refusing large payouts on the basis of spurious reasons, the lack of a package of bonuses would be a negative. The recommended betting sites with SBR do offer bonuses for new and current players.
Customers can select from a range of payment methods with online sportsbooks. The most popular options are debit and credit cards, Wire Transfer and e-Wallets. For example, an SBR recommended site like GTBets provides these deposit options. Quick and prompt payments are important but ClicknGamble was poor in this area. There are standard delays with reputable books but winning players with ClicknGamble who had built up a significant balance faced problems when trying to withdraw betting funds.
ClicknGamble’s scam operation became obvious when customers asked for a payout. There were excuses about a backer not wanting a specific type of player but any outstanding balance would be settled. However, the book closed and balance holders did not receive the payments they were owed. On the basis of this practice, SBR put ClicknGamble on our blacklist and downgraded the operation.
Sports Betting Experience
The best sportsbooks such as Bovada offer lines on over 30 sports which include those in the mainstream and the more obscure. The core product with ClicknGamble was sports betting but the site also featured a specific book for betting on horse racing and a casino and live casino. The focus was on the main professional sports in North America and the global sport of soccer. The betting experience included access to a schedule, scores and a parlay calculator but these products became irrelevant when ClicknGamble delayed or refused to process payouts.
Customer service is important to win trust and sportsbook websites such as Intertops are strong in this area with Live Chat and 24/7 support. However, customers with ClicknGamble faced obstacles when raising the issue of big payouts, which affected the customer service ranking. Staff did not respond to telephone and email enquiries. Winning players were assured they would receive their money but ClicknGamble went offline with unpaid balances.
This operator has an F rating and it is on the Sportsbook Review blacklisted betting sites page. ClicknGamble had a poor reputation with SBR and was downgraded when the site closed. Soliciting players with bet credits and then not making large payouts explains the rating and other sportsbooks are preferred.
