FutureBet now operating as Gametech Solutions
The FutureBet, formerly iGaming Software (IGS) group is now calling itself GameTech Solutions. FutureBet has twice rebranded its company name in an effort to distance itself from its history of theft. SBR has discussed FutureBet’s past with numerous licensees; the most conservative estimates have FutureBet owing $5 million to players, licensees, and staff.
The most recent brand to join the FutureBet/IGS/Gametech group is poker, sportsbook, and casino FeltStars.com (SBR rating F). Futurebet supplies the FeltStars sportsbook and casino software. Futurebet fully hosts and supports FeltStars. | Read full Futurebet report
SportsbookUSA – scam sportsbook adds another victim
SportsbookUSA (SBR rating F) has added another victim. On May 10th a player attempted a withdraw of £116, the funds were shortly thereafter deducted from his account but as weeks went by his Neteller account was not credited. SportsbookUSA cited difficulties with their cashier system. SportsbookUSA has owed players for years, the subject of multiple no-pay complaints which prompted their downgrade to F in 2006.
SportsbookUSA continues scam; players advised to avoid at all costs
SportsbookUSA (SBR rating F) continues to accept new player deposits while not paying winning bettors. The deposit-only sportsbook is on SBR’s blacklist. SportsbookUSA is part of the IGaming Software/FutureBet family, which includes OddsMaker.com. OddsMaker (SBR rating D-) has attempted to distance itself from FutureBet despite their allegiance to the scam parent company.
Oddsmaker.com steals $8,500 in winnings from player
In May of 2009 a player accepted a promotion offering $500 in free bets with a five time (5x) roll over (play-through) on his winnings that could not be withdrawn for 30 days. The player went on a winning streak and promptly turned the $500 in free plays into an $8,400 cash balance. The player told his father about the promotion. The father pursued the free-play from his residence in a different town but was denied due to the sportsbook targeting only specific bettors. The winning player was told that his winnings from the promotion will not be paid due to Oddsmaker (SBR rating D-) taking issue with the fact that he shared the promotion with a third party without authorization. SBR has made its position clear that the matter of a third party’s inactive account is not relevant to his winnings. Oddsmaker has confirmed the facts of the player’s complaint and stated they will not pay him his May winnings because he “lied” about being authorized to refer others to the promotion and was “rude and arrogant” to the Oddsmaker.com staff.
Due to Oddsmaker’s poor reputation they are required to target players with big bonuses who may be uneducated about the industry. SBR routinely receives complaints from players who are lucky enough to go on a winning run only to find the sportsbook has created a reason to deny winnings. Oddsmaker partnered with no-pay scam group Futurebet, now known as IGaming Software (IGS), in 2007. After Futurebet stiffed the majority of its licensee (turnkey) sportsbooks and kept its player deposits, it changed its brand name and website from Futurebet.com to IGamingSoftware.com. Shortly before it stole licensee and player funds it made Oddsmaker and BetOnUSA (SBR rating D-) its main revenue sources. IGS staff denies association with Futurebet despite the obvious signs such as site similarities, management, and using the same unique server. SportsbookUSA (SBR rating F), was the one licensee owned by Futurebet and continues to operate as a deposit-only sportsbook site. | Oddsmaker discussion

New SportsbookUSA (SBR rating F) victims learn they will likely not be paid
SBR continues to receive requests for help from players who are unaware that the sportsbook has owed other players for years. SportsbookUSA is owned by Futurebet Gaming which closed many of its hosted sportsbook brands, stiffing players and business partners in the process. A select few of the brands, namely D- rated BetOnUSA and Oddsmaker, are now more than deposit-only sportsbooks. The two sportsbooks partnered with Futurebet in late 2007 shortly after it began shedding debt by stiffing sportsbook website owners it serviced. It then changed its official company name to Igaming Software.

DailyDime enters the SBR rating guide at D-
DailyDime.com is hosted and serviced, with the same website IP address and company license as AceCity (SBR rating D) and Oddsmaker (SBR rating D), by Futurebet. The Futurebet flagship sportsbook prior to partnering with Oddsmaker and BetOnUSA (SBR rating D-) was SportsbookUSA (SBR rating F). SportsbookUSA has stole hundreds of thousands, if not over a million, from its players. SBR still gets at least one email a week from new SportsbookUSA players who are asking for help collecting winnings. Players should avoid all affiliated sportsbook brands.
Players at scam sportsbook SportsbookUSA (SBR rating F) giving up on funds
Frustration has taken its toll on many players at Futurebet-owned SportsbookUSA. Although the sportbook continues to offer customer service for active players and bonuses for new players, it will not service players requesting funds. Customer Support simply apologizes saying they do not have a timeline for when money will be available. Futurebet is a business partner of BetOnUSA (SBR rating D-) and Oddsmaker (SBR rating D-). These sportsbooks should also be avoided at all costs.
Player: They now owe me over $9K. Tried to get my $3,818 for over two years now. Just cancelled it and have been playing with the money. Unfortunately winning! What should I do, anything? I feel like my hands are tied, should I just quit trying?
Player: I have been waiting on a payout to my neteller account of £1,681.22 (British pounds) since 12th April 2008!! All customer service say is that it is pending, being worked on by the accounts department, sorry for the delay blah blah blah. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you
RevolutionaryPoker Sportsbook enters the SBR rating guide at F
RevolutionaryPoker Sportsbook enters the SBR rating guide at F. RPS is the fourth member of scam sportsbook group, Futurebet to enter the blacklist in the last month.

SBR received a payout complaint last month from a bettor owed $52,900 from SportsbookUSA (SBR rating F), formerly the operation’s flagship brand.
