    Well, Just like the old saying goes bud. If it looks too good to be true it usually is. I believe this falls right in that mold, because theres way more negatives than there are positives.

    They were in real trouble a while back and even disclosed they were considereding closing.

    I do however believe they have cleared up their past slow pays at least I haven't heard anymore on that.

    This is a book to avoid.

    Dam I apologize, I was thinking of ActionBets. I can't say I've ever even heard of this book. Sorry about that ActionSports.

    I remember about 4 years ago Skytower offered this scam type stuff. I doubt if you remember it or not John, but I sent you something about it via an Email way back when you were helping me with my complaint. Hell, I think i even made a post about it over at the OGD way back then.

    I'm sure some of you remember this book putting a hold on your *********** deposits or something like that. Anyways, this book has been around for roughly 10 years or so (give or take), and SBR management reviewed there establishment.

    Heres the latest wire on them:

    I can't stand the total BS in this thread about a solid fantastic Canadian company. Unlike you talking heads I checked them out by opening an account with them a long time ago.
    I can tell you that everything is just like they say, nothing shady about them at all. It is obvious that none of you know anything about them, so why would any of you remember them.
    They never put a hold on deposits. Best part is you don't even have to deposit. They wait to see what happens to your bets and guarantee the credit with your credit card.

    If that's how you feel, you could have helped yourself out by not bumping all that bad information. It was gone and forgotten. Now a whole new group of players will look at it and get a bad impression and probably stop reading before they even get to the clarification.

    Since we're here, do you want to say anything about what you offer? Lines, limits, selection and so on?

    I saw advertising for actiononsports called and was impressed. I checked them on SBR and got a negative impression. Then I started thinking and realized that bigboydan,degenerate1,tacomax and john knew nothing of this sportsbook. They were just saying silly things. I signed up and have been betting with actiononsports.com for over a year and am I ever glad I started thinking. The difference between them and previous sportsbooks was like day and night.
    ActionOnSports is what you expect from a professional sportsbook.

    I think his post is the same as it was before he edited it, all i see is the actionsports in red. Now if only he would edit it to make it sound less like it was made by someone associated with a scam book.

    That's what's interesting. I thought it might be scam after reading SBR. Then I got curious how I got that impression because after re reading I realized it was all BS.
    I checked and there never was a sportsbook called actionsports and it would mean nothing even if there was. Actionsports has always been a sports photography site.
    Notice that all negative comments are from Americans and actiononsports.com says that they don't sign up Americans
    No negative comments from Canadians.

    actiononsports is great to canadians

    i am a current player and very happy. they will pay back to you cc. most other sports books will not pay to cc or send ** or **. the only other book i like is betcris who will gladly payout by ** to canadians. the max amount you can win from actiononsports is $3000. so players who are not trying to win millions will like this book

    Actiononsports is a great sportsbook. The guys you mention are associated with SBR. SBR gets a cut from sportsbook that they promote. Those guys were just trash talking because they don't get a cut from actiononsports. Any Canadian should stay away from sportsbooks that take U.S. customers or that are branches of sportsbooks that take U.S. customers. This one is great. bet365 and stanjames are also good

    I have been using Actiononsports since August 2011, customer service is very good.

    No issues.

    They ARE NOT a scam book. They are legit.
