Sportingbet refuses to apply bonus; AGCC rubberstamps decision
A Sportingbet (SBR rating D+) player has been denied a £50 free bet promotion. The player signed up to take advantage of the “risk free” proposition, which only required that the player’s first wager be placed at odds of 1.5 or greater. After placing a losing wager on the Wolverhampton Wanderers, the player expected to see the £50 free bet. One week passed and the player decided to make an enquiry with Sportingbet. The player was told that the bonus would not be issued in accordance with a policy that allowed it to not honour its promotion at its own discretion.Read More

Sportsbook.com (SBR rating D-) confiscates $10,000, cites free-play bonus abuse
Sportsbook.com (SBR rating D-) confiscates $10,000, cites free-play bonus abuse.
Player: Hello…..I need help with a sportsbook complaint. I had around $10,000 at 6 different sportsbooks within the sportsbook.com group. They said they froze my accounts for “free bet” abuse and seized all funds…..I only made $200 – $300 off of freebets over the last two years….and they took $10,000. I can see if they wanted to take the $200-$300, but 10K? Is there anything that can be done?
Sportsbook.com is claiming the use of bonuses at multiple Sportsbook.com-managed books is “bonus fraud” and reason to confiscate winnings. A second player has submitted a claim to SBR for $50,000 . The player was told $50,000 would not be paid because he circumvented limits on some of his wagers by using affiliated sportsbooks to place the same bets. The same player was also debited over $30,000 when Sportsbook.com scammed multiple users, stealing parlay winnings.
Player: I have always used my own name, address, email, credit cards, etc. It was
plain who I was at all times. I don’t see how I should be expected to keep track of which books are allowed and which aren’t, especially if that information isn’t expressed anywhere.
Sportsbook.com and sister Jazette books do not have rules against using multiple brands and utilizing their promotions. It is often encouraged through the sportsbook sales departments which market each website as an independent sportsbook. Sportsbook.com states that it will adress these reports in detail.
