Sportsbook.com landed on the SBR blacklist as a result of continual failures to pay customers the winnings they are entitled to. We recommend that you avoid this sports betting site and stick to the safe, trustworthy sites found on our best sportsbooks list instead. Read on for a full Sportsbook com review if you want to learn why it has been assigned such a poor rating.
If you click on the “Promos” option at the top of the Sportsbook com homepage, you will be presented with the following message: “Go to Sportsbook.ag now for real money gambling”. It means that Sportsbook com is simply a holding site designed to push traffic towards Sportsbook ag, an identical site hosted in Antigua.
The promos page at Sportsbook ag lists the bonuses on offer at this sportsbook. It does not offer a welcome bonus or a reload bonus. Most of the betting sites that we review provide players with compelling sportsbook bonuses to stand out in a competitive market. That is not the case at Sportsbook com and Sportsbook ag, which only offers a 100% poker room bonus and a racebook rebate. Even if you are tempted by those promotions, you should avoid them, as Sportsbook com and Sportsbook ag are likely to scam you.
The best online betting sites provide you with a wealth of payment methods, including credit card, e-wallet and Bitcoin. Top gambling sites such as BetOnline and Bovada have earned a strong SBR review by regularly paying customers out quickly and in full, while offering a variety of withdrawal methods. The top online sportsbooks often pay you out in 24 hours via certain payment options.
That is simply not the case at the parent company of Sportsbook com and Sportsbook ag. We have heard a number of complaints about this online sports betting site. Many players have been told they cannot withdraw substantial balances, and the reasons given have been totally spurious or invalid. Payouts have been canceled, delayed or simply withheld, so we consider this to be a deeply untrustworthy site. If you read a Sportsbook ag review, or read about sister sites like PlayersOnly, you will find that they are deemed equally unreliable.
Sports Betting Experience
You will find all the classic sports betting options at this gambling site. It primarily targets US players, with a strong focus on NFL (see also NFL Predictions), NBA, MLB and horse racing. However, when you delve a little deeper, you will notice that the interface is clunky, there are no prop bets, the odds are underwhelming, the live betting section is empty and it does not cover many sports. The team has done the bare minimum to appeal to a US sports bettor, and the poor user experience should set alarm bells ringing.
You might initially enjoy strong customer service at gaming sites like this, including live chat and phone support. However, in our experience at Sportsbook Review, the customer support levels generally plummet as soon as sports bettors start to ask why their money has not arrived. Members of our community have complained that they are never given a suitable answer when they ask why they cannot access the money they won fair and square.
This operator has a D+ rating and it is on the Sportsbook Review blacklisted betting sites page. It has a bad reputation due to its failure to pay customers their online gambling winnings, and we highly recommend that you look elsewhere for a better sportsbook.
