This sportsbook is also offline
EnterBet is now offline and blacklisted with SBR after we gave the operator a D rating. There have been disputes over payments and cases of EnterBet closing accounts with positive account balance without explanation. This was not a trustworthy site, and there are reputable alternatives on the SBR’s best sportsbooks list. The EnterBet review examines the reasoning behind the low sportsbook rating.
EnterBet used bonuses to entice new players to open an account and deposit betting funds. For example, one welcome offer came in the form of a 50% matched deposit bonus. This offer was subject to wagering requirements and odds restrictions. The bonus appeared to be generous, but EnterBet was a scam internet site.
The brand is part of the GoTo Entertainment Group and there is literature that suggests it was founded in 1998. Many of the bonuses were related to football, which is massive for betting offshore in the United States. The odds were attractive and enticing, but EnterBet could not be trusted.
Top gambling sites such as BetOnline and Justbet have earned a strong SBR review by regularly paying customers out quickly and in full, while offering a variety of withdrawal methods. That is simply not the case at EnterBet.
Customers could make deposits and withdrawals using standard user account methods, and deposits were immediate but delays in processing payments were a huge negative which explained SBR’s poor rating.
In the early days, EnterBet put forward payment plans for big payouts. There is evidence of the operator charging customers for making enquiries about delayed payments. One case of a late payment was only settled after three years!
Sports Betting Experience
The focus on NFL betting was a key element of the EnterBet sports betting experience. The site featured generous spread lines which were designed to attract new customers and entice existing customers to make deposits and place bets. Customers could place wagers on matches in the NBA, MLB and NHL, and global sports like soccer, tennis, motor racing and boxing. Review information indicates that the popular markets were money line, handicaps and totals.
EnterBet accepted related parlays and then voided any winning bets, but did not make refunds for losing bets. Related parlays include selections that are linked so the combined odds offer exceptional value. Reputable sportsbooks do not allow customers to place these bets, but EnterBet did not object or make interventions. This was another example of how EnterBet exploited customers.
There is a long history of customer disputes with EnterBet. Most complaints are related to slow payments, and there are also some customers who have had accounts closed despite holding a positive balance. Before going offline the site looked dated and there were many flaws and factual errors.
We recommend that you avoid this type of sports betting sites and stick to the safe, trustworthy ones found on our best sportsbooks list instead.
The range of reasons for complaints includes slow payouts, confiscated funds and the incorrect settlement of related parlays. It’s clear EnterBet deserved a poor SBR rating. You can consider other options for your sports betting but, in any case, EnterBet should remain offline.

EnterBet player from SBR report paid after nearly three years
An EnterBet (SBR rating D-) player who filed an SBR complaint on December 7th, 2011 has been paid. The player detailed in his claim against EnterBet that he had been owed $2,000 for approximately two years. The player had written off his chances at ever being paid from the notorious slow-pay outfit, which caters mostly to casino players these days. SBR contacted EnterBet on the player’s behalf in December, but the case fell cold. On Monday, March 19th, 2012, an EnterBet manager contacted SBR stating that the claim had been settled. The player allegedly received an agreed upon amount, as records of his old balance were allegedly lost. SBR has contacted the player to confirm the amount paid and his acceptance of the reported deal.

GoTo group players with payment complaints are asked to submit a sportsbook complaint form or write to email@example.com.
