    Thanks for the update Andy.

    Fingers crossed for sportsbook freeplays coming back.

    extremely disappointing , hopefully Canada/ international members will still have rewards available

    wish we got more time with the previous store rewards before it close down though

    Just an observation but perhaps you shouldn't be so happy at even *more* posters leaving. It's pretty dead around here for it being football season.

    it ain't that bad look at the for cash contests going on. who else is running these type of free games to win real monies. It sucks the store is closed for good but a new model has emerged based on the legal Landscape. It is what it is?

    I'll keep pushing for bashes any chance I get!

    Forum manager and higher ups have sounded like a bash is still desirable every time spoken about.



    And in case the announcement does not get the message across clearly, the intention is still to provide the same level of value for betpoints in the end.

    Removing the Sportsbook would be a terrible decision since it's currently the only material way for members to try and increase their betpoints balance. The Casino was another way of course, but was abandoned and never fixed.
    The SBR Sportsbook is the only LIFELINE of this place currently. You took away Poker. Everything else you are offering.... no basis on posters staying. You change the infrastructure of how the SBR Sportsbook is currently.... good luck keeping people.

    You already have several posters upset because of the delays with the SBR Store.

    The honest opinion with how this website is being ran now... it's pure boredom to the end user. Why do we still come here?? Hope. We've been here forever. We've spoken to a lot of posters throughout the years on this website. Regardless, all good things do come to an end. I just don't understand why 1 year has already gone by... and nothing really has changed. Most people stayed because they wanted to use their betpoints.

    Posters feel let down. They don't believe. It's unfortunate.

    Why is the store closing if stuff like this will be still redeemable with betpoints? Where would they be redeemable if the store is closing?

    How will SBR Pro membership work with the new loyalty program?

    - Pro membership will remain. However, we are working on expanding into a tiered system based on betpoint balance which will unlock different perks, for example: SBR swag, entry into exclusive cash contests, free plays at partner sportsbooks, and chances to win sports betting themed trips.

    Suggestion: Hold some cash prize contests with betpoint buy-ins. Would thin the field, retain some actual point value, and make it so we're not always competing against a bunch of randoms with 0 pts who never post or contribute

    How does not having a store coincide with the emergence of the legal landscape?

    I'm in a legal state (Arkansas) and I have the 3 apps offered. These books are not mainstream (FD, DK). What value are betpoints going to be for anyone in my state? From reading the OP and some of your responses I don't see any value for us. Do you have plans for us folks regarding betpoints?

    Similar to the sportsbook, we are assessing the future of trivia in its current form. It is a fun weekly challenge for members, but would need to be upgraded, as manually updating questions & resetting errors is not the best solution. Either way there will be daily challenges available to earn points.

    While sportsbook rewards may be limited to begin with in states with only a few operators, we are hopeful that those will expand. You will still have access to additional perks. Exclusive cash contests and new SBR swag are just a couple options under consideration. We are open to suggestions that add value and are feasible.

    in that case, if anyone wants my 2104 freeplay points, and 6638 betpoints... they can have the whole thing for $80 amazon

    pretty good deal since $100 amazon was only 4000 and points are still gonna be worth that! or are they gonna still be worth the $100 for 2667 that it was a year ago? i'm so confused!

    Will you guys do a better job at not letting ghosts join the cash prize contests?

    It is well known that some people have multiple accounts for the current and past cash prize contests.
