    Cent sports may be a fraud.

    After using "Cent sports .com" - a free ad based beting site, and taking 10 cents and generating around $48.00 in winnings, I finally understand where the catch to this site may be - the cashout. Google "cent sports" for the site, the editor will not allow me to post the link here.

    It seems you have to request a cashout and are deemed worthy of a cashout only if the site determines if your "cashout score" is within an acceptable limit. I always seem to be below this limit, regardless of the amount I request to cashout.

    The last cashout request I submitted, I was right on the limit of the cashout score, and requested a reason why I was not cashed out. When I returned to view my score, somehow, the scores were raised to push me below the cashout limit. (I was tied with someone at 43 - he was to be cashed out, then his score was raised to 53...).

    Somthing doesn't seem right there, regardless of the notion that the site is "free."

    I have played with them but didnt find it worth my time due to the cashout mess they have. On the other hand, sportstrio.com paid me by *********** within a week. I currently use BetAgainstMe.com as a fun out. I would rather use these type of sites when I want to take a shot than deal with a racket like CW. Finally, I agree with you it is poorly ran atleast, at worst it is a scam.

    Thanks Great30, I will have to give that site a try.....

    Definitely not worth using cent sports if the cashout system is a joke.....

    Anyone out there actually cash out at cent sports? What was the amount and what was your score?

    Why not have SBR create a site similar to cent sports? While SBR contests does a great job with the current contest lineup, an SBR ad based sportsbook site where you try to take $0.10 and see how much you can generate based on a book like site would be fun.

    If SBR ran it, it would be done right. Have the sportsbooks be a sponsor and shuffle the winnings to a book (at 5x rollover as usual....) The legalites of the site would be clear because individuals are not depositing funds. Use the betpoints as a "buy-in" If you sign-up for a book (or deposit money in a book), you get a $0.10 buy in to the SBR sportsbook site and have to cash out to the book you deposited into or signed up for.

    If you take the effort to generate over $20 in winnings, try and cash out.....it is a bit frustrating.

    While it is not a "fraud" in the sence that you lost someting, it is a scam in the sence that a cashout is promised, and never actually produced.

    Actually, the site gets more and more addictive as you get past the $20 threshold. I guess it is too much to ask that the site actually pay out.

    Fair enough. What happens to your $ if you try to cash out and dont make the "cut?" Do they just start you back at zero? If not, did you keep trying?

    Once you get past $20, you go to the cashout page. There you submit a cashout request and a cashout "score" is generated based on you "RELATIVE" winning percentage, amount bet, amount won..... The key word is "RELATIVE" because your score is based on how you compare to others in your cashout category ($20-$30,$30-$50....)

    My average winning percentage was abour 56%, at around $1.75 per bet and $48.00 in my account with a request for $25..... and generated a score of 43. You can submit any number of requests once you are past $20, and a new score is generated with each request.

    I had submitted numerous requests once I was past $30, but have always been below the cashout rankings...After resubmittng a number of times, I just got frustrated.

    I get the feeling they really have no intention of cashing out the majority of requests due to lack of funds. Take a look at the cashout section and you will see there are quite a number of people who have won over $50 there....

    I started this thread to see if anyone here actually cased out from cent sports or know of similar sites out there....

    a number of people have cashed out. In fact, there's an entire thread on their forum with people taking pictures of checks they've received.

    It is hard to cash out because a lot of people are trying to.

    Yisman or shanty,

    Do either of you play there? Have either of you cashed out? If so, how much were you able to cash out, what score did you generate, and what were your percentages to generate a cash out score.

    I am sure a few people have cashed out, but the question is: Have any posters here at SBR been cashed out?

    Actually he likes 5Dimes also. I wish shanty had an issue with 5Dimes and he had to speak to Tony. That would be a classic conversation.

    $20

    Yup definitely cashed out immediately when I first got over $20. I don't remember if I was successful the first time due to the lottery system they have set up, but I cashed out and cashed my check. I don't see how you not cashing out the one time you try makes it a ripoff, but it sure worked for me. Free case of beer!

    FYI, I cashed out.

    People saying it's a scam are clueless about how that site operates.

    It's an ad based website. They don't have a set amount of money sitting to cash people out. They don't even win off your losses. It all is a system. Those making more bets and risking more money will be cashed out first. It's the only way for them to operate.

    The best of these sites is FreeSportsBet.com. I have cashed out there and had no issues whatsoever getting $200. No line, no wait.

    What kind of scam piece of crap site did this turn out to be? Here we are depositing our hard earned money to these bastards and they wanna give us the workaround with some complicated system for cashing out the money. I will definitely never deposit there again. Oh shit wait a minute...

    Did this really happen? Are you in high school? Or did an adult do this?
