    Sportsbook question

    Hi everyone. I've been around online sports gambling for many years, since the last 90s, so please don't flame me for being a 'newbie' on here. I'm a lurker who reads posts when I have time.

    I've been a mediocre at best sports gambler my whole life (just being honest).

    Haven't been playing much in the last 5 years, dabbling here and there. Finally made a deposit to a book with a big bonus (because I only had a couple hundred to deposit) last week. Well, I've had an unbelievable run, winning like crazy. Very unusual for me, normally suck at baseball. So I've turned it into a lot of money, more than I've ever had in a book, about 10x my deposit/bonus amount, and I have met the steep rollover requirement

    Anyway, I'm not going to name the book. They are rated poorly on here, I thought they were a C rating, but I saw today that they are a D+. I did play there last fall and lost and I've played at a book in their group a couple times and lost the deposit.

    So I'm worried about getting my money. I saw that it takes quite a while to get paid from the book using ** or **, disappointing but I've read that's how it is now.

    Should I be worried?? I'm normally a 150-250 per game bettor, and they have limited me to a $200 win. Not a big deal, I think it's funny because I'm not sharp or very good at this. I put in the withdrawal request and I'm waiting to hear back from them.

    Thanks for the input and help.

    First of all, A books can give you a hassle. Just look at the number of them that have gone down in the past 5 years. Why even give a B or less book the time of day? Get your money and get out.

    Whats up with all the secrets on sbr lately? How can anyone help if you wont name the book? Also if youve been lurking for years why are you playing at a d+ shop or even a C shop? Not that sbr ratings are the be all end all but still. Until proven otherwise yes I would be worried and if youve met the rollover I wouldnt make one more bet there until you see if you will be paid or not. For your sake hopefully its not betus. Very shady people there.

    Just my 2 cents..

    Sorry for not naming the book

    No it's not BetUs

    I didn't want to cause problems with the book, still waiting to hear from them within their guidelines

    D+ narrows it down. I'll go with Hollywood and you played at Sportsbook.com before that.

    Obviously your a little sharper than you let on. Maybe you'll come back in a few days and post what a tremendous success this payout was, drum roll, and then name this superb d+ book?

    I'm starting to realize that, I thought this site was for helping players with problems with the sportsbooks etc.

    It was for helping players but offshore gambling is a mess right now. Did you file a complaint with SBR? That is the only way to get help. When you decide to name and shame the peanut gallery will let you know if you will get paid.

    12 years ago I found a similar player advocate site because of Betroyal. I eventually was paid 2K after about 2 months to Neteller. I was ready to chalk it up to an expensive lesson learned. I know where you are coming from not wanting to name the book but prepare yourself for the worst.

    Why not mention the book? A few of them have reps that come on here, they might at least look at your case to keep -ve publicity off the front pages.

    Actually... I do not really see an issue yet. Your just wondering if you will have a problem. We do not even know if you have finished your rollover requirements but this thinking the book was C rated and turns out to be D+ sounds exactly like Legions Dimeline thread from a few months ago. So, I am going with with either Dimeline or one of the RGB services. If it is an RGB service I am sure you will probably be paid, they are avoiding bad PR as much as possible... if the other then Legions will have plenty to say. So basically you deposited $200 and got a 100% bonus probably and went on a run for like 3 or4 dimes... on bases and got limited. Good luck... I am guessing you still got rollover and have to deal with crappy limits.

    I was talking about people getting limited to $50-75 bets. I was lowered to $200. But I normally play between 150-275 per game so to me it wasn't a big deal

    Wannabe_winner,

    People here will look for any reason to assume you're the problem. It seems very systemic of the system thats been created here. Blame the victim i think its called in other situations.

    Wannabe... if it is a big sum to u (i'm assuming 4k+ here, since u deposited maybe 200+200 bonus * 10), I'll advocate partial withdrawals so as not to alarm the book to attempt any blocking techniques. Just withdraw 500-900 at a time, keep it below the 4 figure mark, continue giving them action (just spray 25 - 50 bucks bets around), make your account seem active. If you withdraw the whole chunk after that nice run, dodgy books like to slap u with a bonus abuser tag and delay / cancel your winnings, which will suck.

    Keep it small, aim to get the funds out over 3 to 4 months. Patience my friend.

    I only care about my own bets. You said "i only had $200" so i took a big bonus. Doesn't make sense for someone that claims their average bet is 150-275 and that is laughable.

    That's your opinion and you're entitled to that. So if I have a $400 balance, I'm supposed to bet $20 per game?

    Either way, my money management is not the greatest and it's my own concern. Someday I'd love to have $5000 in a great sportsbook and do it the right way

    This is like the "Rubiks Cube" of threads. Not sure where to go now... but an observation. Wannabe has refuted all the other guesses on which book other than mine and Looneys. If I am correct then I understand why he would not bring up the brand yet on a forum. It would bring him even more problems with trying to cash out... Anyway, it is your bankroll so wager it how you want Wannabe. Good Luck.
