Bookmaker AscotSports Closing?

Isle of Man sportsbook, AscotSports (not rated), appears to be closing its doors. Earlier this month the sportsbook posted a message that the site was closed due to “system maintenance and enhancements” but has since added a message asking players to withdraw their funds by May 31st. The Malaysian Insider has reported that the book’s owner, Vincent Tan Chee Yioun, has decided to close Ascot. Some Ascot players found the bookmaker after a bonus offer to Pointbet (SBR rating F) victims was publicized. Players are hopeful that Ascot will close in good standing unlike Pointbet but are nervous because recent withdrawal requests have not been addressed. Some players report delays of two weeks. One casino winner with a balance of 18625 euro says he has been locked out of his account since May 5th. Ascot management had contacted SBR in April about a beginning the rating evaluation process but has not yet responded to player inquiries from earlier this week. Users should request their funds immediately.

Pointbet off-line

Indonesia-based Pointbet (SBR rating F) off-line; estimated to have stolen millions.  Pointbet.com was showing as a ‘parked’ domain yesterday morning, advertising other gambling-related websites. The domain is using a new server and IP address, suggesting the site was manually moved as opposed to experiencing technical issues- a common problem for Pointbet. Pointbet was blacklisted a little over one year ago after SBR confirmed the website was operating illegally from Batam Island. Many of the book’s Asian handicap bettors were victims of AsianOdds & Game2bet which also disappeared just over one year ago.

No-Pay bookmaker, Pointbet downgraded to F

Players from around the world are writing in daily to ask what they can do to increase their chances of receiving payment and to help keep others from becoming Pointbet victims. Pointbet.com is still accepting deposits from unsuspecting players yet the last report of payment was received in December of 2006. Debt to players is estimated to be into the millions. | Pointbet Discussion | Pointbet History |

Pointbet tries to con players into gambling their funds

Pointbet (SBR rating D-) tells multiple players they will receive payment faster if they wager with balances; ignore order of request. No-pay reports continue to reach new highs.

Excerpt from Pointbet Chat:
Pointbet: we suggest you to keep play with us, so you will be in active member list
Player: I have been playing with you for 3 years.
Player: So I have been very active always.
Player: Will it matter for my w/d if I don’t wager until I receive the funds?
Pointbet: there is no matter with the withdraw sir, for sure you will get the fund too
Pointbet: but it will takes a longer time
Player: Could you please explain why that is so
Pointbet: because we make a priority
Pointbet: the active member withdraw will be process first
Player: Please check if I am on the active player list
Pointbet: i have checked that you are not in the active player sir
Pointbet: because you don;t play with us any

Pointbet lowered to D-

Pointbet drops to D-. Players from around the world are reporting failed promises to pay on a daily basis. Some report having made their payout request over two months ago. The sportsbook is now telling users they must continue to wait but have not committed to a date or provided an excuse for not paying. Pointbet blames a recent earthquake in the region for intermittent website downtime over the past two weeks.

Player: You can add my name to the lsit of people who are owedd money by point bet They owe me $7500 for a couple of weeks. There website has been down all week. Have they disappeared? Do you know if anyone else has been paid?

Pointbet (SBR rating D) situation worsens


Despite confirmed reports of payment at the end of last year, the amount of withdrawal complaints from Pointbet users has peaked. Wait time for many have exceeded one month and complaints to SBR involve requests totaling over $100,000. Players should pursue their balances through whatever means possible.
