Scam Alert: BestHockeyBetting (SBR rating F) offers scam bonus of 20%
BestHockeyBetting.com (SBR rating F) is offering a signup bonus of 20% to new accounts. BestHockeyBetting is a scam sportsbook under what is now a mostly defunct sportsbook group, EZ Sports. EZ Sports operated 49 sportsbook domain names at its peak and has scammed players out of hundreds of thousands in winnings. One of those players wrote in to SBR today indicating he had been stiffed $45,500 by Vegas-Sportsbetting.com (SBR rating F) in 2005. Vegas-Sportsbetting, like nearly all other former domains under the EZ Sports platform is now a sportsbook referrals site. | EZ Sports report
BestHockeyBetting enters the SBR Rating Guide with an F rating.
BestHockeyBetting is part of the EZ Sports Group. The most recent complaint came from a player who was with sister book Vegas-Sportsbetting (SBR rating F). The player won almost $5,000 on a Giants Super Bowl futures wager. After requesting his winnings he was locked out of his account and told the line was a mistake. The group has stiffed big futures winners in the past claiming the line was offered in error and will not be honored. The scam allows the book to take continuous action on multiple teams throughout the season, eventually stiffing only those who bet on the championship team. BestHockeyBetting’s homepage highlights generous futures odds on which team will win both NHL conferences and the Stanley Cup. Players should avoid Best Hockey Betting and its sister EZ Sports books at all costs.
Vegas-Sportsbetting Player reports no-pay dating back to September 2007
The bettor requested $400 through Neteller in September and has since requested the remainder of his $1,500 balance. The Vegas-Sportsbetting (SBR rating F) website gives him the message that he is not allowed to have more than one “pending withdrawal.” Emails to the scam operation have bounced and the phone representative continuously claims management is not available to address the payout request. The player explains how he was duped by Vegas-Sportsbetting:
I have tried contacting them through ‘live chat’ help but when you eventually are told you have an operator, as soon as you mention ‘withdrawing’ money, they disappear and no further dialogue takes place. The email address they give for support just bounces back. I currently have over $1500 in the account. I must confess to not realising there are so many bogus sportsbook in operation, in the UK where I reside you never get these sort of problems. I actually work for the Racing Post – national daily racing/sports paper – and will be writing up my experiences with this firm, and advising everyone to check out your ratings and reviews about any sportsbook before opening an account and departing with money with these firms. They are very clever. The NFL markets in particular are frequently updated, giving the impression that its a very workable and therefore trustworthy operation.
