    I would like to know why Grande is a B+ and not a A+.

    Skip, has never muled no one in his life, I guess when you pay everybody you get a B+.

    They are certainly an A+ in a lot of areas like credit. But for postup, they really dont seem to want to do much in that area. We had players try to sign up for months and just couldn't because their site just didn't work. Their "signup now" link was completely dead giving the player "page not found" error for about a year until they fixed it. This is a great book with the strength of Atlas behind them but not much of a force, by their own choice, in the online postup world.

    Question #2 Why is Tradewinds rated a C+? Is it because Scotty has too much money?

    I doubt its because he has too much money. Although we have seen NAB Bill, Aces Charlie, Mark D Camelot, Eddie Alladins, Juan GoldenBets, Bluemarlin, AnthonyV Securebuxx and many, many others who had plenty of money but took off anyway with even more money.

    Tradewinds is where they are based on players who have played there and reported their expierence. Its a decent book and C+ is not a bad rating.

    Grande is an A+ bookmaker for sure. A large veteran player will watch them even if his account isn't funded. Lines are good, the money is good and the people are good.

    However, Grande is not an A+ online sportsbook, especially for the average player. The signup page does not exist, emails often do not receive an initial response and office hours are on a part time schedule.

    If you understand how Grande works and you are the type of player they cater to, you very well may have an A+ experience.

    Grande is a solid B for post up, slow software, lines up late, not an uppier tier book also with active accounts

    I weigh heavy on active accounts at books

    Credit they are an A

    I think if they went more aggressively after post up and cncentrated on it more I might put them an A-

    I wish they would jump into post up with both feet. Then again, when you call them they are like calling Merril Lynch, professional to the max. They apparently are pretty happy and dont see a reason to take the big plunge in the difficult to manage post up arena.

    Does Grandes signup page even work? I tried to join all last season and I couldn't I finally gave up. B+? whatever C at best, if your site is screwed up for months on end that shows a lack of professionalism.

    What more can I say.

    Grande is not a factor with the online gambling business

    It is mainly a credit shop
