BetGrizzly sportsbook payouts?
A BetGrizzly (unrated) player has filed a sportsbook complaint. The player tells SBR that he deposited to BetGrizzly after being lured in by their attractive bonuses, and because he had prior dealings with “Chuck” (formerly of WagerWeb). The player tells SBR that BetGrizzly gives out 25% in freeplays per day, and that by his estimation he has received nearly $2,000 in freeplays in his short time with the online sportsbook. After having success with his wagers, the player tells Sportsbook Review that his balance was increased to $4,000. He has been trying to withdraw funds for the last week via a cash transfer service, and has to date not received payment, despite BetGrizzly advertising same-day payouts through those methods.
Players are advised to use extreme discretion in choosing which online sportsbook to send their funds to. Unrated sportsbooks just starting out have a high failure rate in this industry. Many of these sportsbooks will promise 100% bonuses or other daily incentives to entice players to play with them over more established sportsbooks. | BetGrizzly sportsbook news

WagerHub confiscates $1900 in winnings
The WagerHub (SBR rating D-) player who was the subject of SBR’s March 3rd sportsbook complaint had $1900 in winnings confiscated by WagerHub. Initially the player’s account was frozen due to non-recreational play, then WagerHub came forward with allegations that his account was accessed from IP’s outside of his geographic location. The player was able to reasonably prove that his account was never controlled by a third party.
The player deposited $500 on January 14th in exchange for a 44% cash bonus and 56% freeplay bonus. The total rollover for the 100% promotion was 10X. When his account was suspended with a balance of $8900, rollover was complete. WagerHub removed $1900 in funds stating that bonuses could not be redeemed by non-recreational players. WagerHub agreed only to pay $5600 to the player. $300 was used in withdrawal fees, and the remaining $1100 was played and lost pending his withdrawal. SBR considers the action of removing winnings from an account that have already been rolled over theft.
WagerHub complaint reported
A WagerHub (SBR rating D-) complaint has been filed. The player in question was the subject of SBR’s 2/1 and 2/2 report, which chronicled WagerHub freezing the player’s account balance which held $8200 due to “nonrecreational play”. No rules were violated, yet WagerHub informed the player his $500 deposit would be refunded and winnings nullified. On 2/2 SBR reported that WagerHub agreed to pay the player in full.
WagerHub sent two payments to the player, for $2500 and $2000. After the player confirmed receiving $4500 toward his balance, WagerHub stated that over 40 IP addresses resolving to Canada were linked to the bettors account, and that he would not be paid the remainder of his winnings. The player does not reside in Canada. The player denies ever releasing his account details to any other person, and requested that WagerHub supply a list of the IP addresses associated with his account. The player then concluded that bets placed on his mobile phone were being linked to Canada. He states that after speaking to his cellular provider’s technical department it was explained that his mobile phone carriers main server is located in Canada, and due to his geographic proximity his assigned IP is Canadian. SBR is investigating the complaint.
Player vs WagerHub: chargeback dispute
A WagerHub (SBR rating D-) player funded his account with $800 via an eWalletxpress deposit. The player states that he bet successfully with WagerHub and increased his balance to between $4-$5000, before the deposit was ruled as being made with insufficient funds. The player states that WagerHub offered him a deal that if he sent $834+ fees via Western Union to cover the deposit he would be allowed to continue betting provided he played for at least 30 days. WagerHub confirmed to SBR that this arrangement was made. The player sent a $900 Western Union to WagerHub and proceeded to increase his account to more than $9,000 before eventually zeroing out his account. The player later wrote to SBR when eWalletxpress informed him that they never received the $900 from the sportsbook. The player covered the second $900 out of pocket to eWalletxpress so that he could reopen his account. SBR is in the process of gathering more information into the chargeback dispute.
