    Mogai...

    You've been paid before, correct? Didn't know if you were one of the earlier ones that got paid before.

    No, I have not been paid anything. I had requested in March, but after learning about the delays cancelled so that I would hvae the money in my account. I re-requested on 4/18 and 4/24, as I stated above.

    I see

    You're like me then. We'll see what happens within the next 2-3weeks. Man, wish we'd all get paid promptly like we've been in the past. However, I do believe they'll pay us...Granted, slowly though.

    I'll let you know when I receive. I made a request in the amount of $1500.00 as of 4/24. My orginal request from 3/19 got sent back into my account.

    Anyway, like I said, don't think there's been a lot of complaints lately.
    I requested $5400 on march 26th by regular mail from germany. First I was told it was processed on April 10th. Then I was told the processor had a backlog and would send it out betweeen the 23rd - 28th. No idea if it was ever sent out or not.

    I requested 2 wires on march 29th. neither has been processed

    I requested 2 more checks from germany for 6k each on april 1st. neither of them have been processed

    I requested another wire for 9800 on the 17th - not yest processed

    I requested another check from germany on the 18th for 4k. Not yet processed

    I requested a dhl for 2k on the 18th, that was processed (supposedly) on the 26th. Still waiting for it

    Lastly I requested a check for 2800 on the 24th, don't know if it will be dhl or form germany. Not yet processed.

    There are a number of possibilities of whats going on.
    1) legitamate processor problems
    2) Thye are simply totally disorganized and overwhelmed
    3) Each of their books has a seperate queue. And because of the limitations imposed by their processors, they are only willing to process a limited number from any one book. For instance they might say we'll send out 100k a day from sportsbook.com, but only send out 20k a day for Allpro.com So depending on whihc book you hvae your funds in, you might find the queue moving faster or slower.
    4) Management is going through the accounts labeling some players as desirable and others as undesirable. Undesirable acocunt are getting paid last.
    5) Books profitability is plummeting and the owners are trying to decide whether to continue paying or wehther to shut down.

    There is a whole host of reasons for what is causing the delay. Doens't make sense to me why the continue to tell people that the backlog is shifting. Who are they trying to fool. We're stuck in the queue, we know the reality. I'd be a lot more at ease if we could get some real answers. But in todays environment as we've seen from cascade, at any moment the finacial backers could walk away, and the book would collapse.

    I for one had not been too worried until recently. If these former SB employees who are posting having any credibility, it is very worrisome if they truly are unable to even pay employees and are firing others. That makes me thing they really are in financial crisis, and that I may never get my funds. I am still fairly confident I will get them, but part of me really worries.

    TRUE THAT! I've requested regular mail in the past and received it 30 days later. For FedEX and DHL, it was usually 4-7 days. I don't know what it is now since it is all in the hands of the new processors. Check Inc. use to process it rather quickly. Anyway, hope this helps. I think if they were trully in trouble they wouldn't keep advertising on ESPN, VEGAS INSIDER, USA TODAY, and on some AM radio stations. Like I said, let's wait 2-3 weeks and see since they've been telling all of us that by the end of this week, or by mid May that the processor should have everything figured out.

    Sportsbook.com mgt. says they currently have 4 processors. 2 for wires and 2 for checks. One wire and check processor is for requests above $2500 and another set is for those below. The $2500 or less payouts are said to be going out much quicker than those above. If you have $3000 or even $5000 you might want to try two separate transfers. If both are done at once, they will be combined and go to the slower processor.

    I have been reading this thread since March 25th when my first withdrawal request was redeposited into Sportsbook.com with the 5% bonus. I re-requested a withdrawal for less than $2,000 on April 7th, another withdrawal for less than $2,000 on April 14th, and a wire for less than $10,000 on April 17th.
    While I have still not received an email telling me that my withdrawals have been processed, I received the first check in the mail via DHL today. I am still waiting on the 2nd check and the wire.
    I have my fingers crossed on the rest getting here...and I will post anything if my check bounces.

    FWIW. Withdrew $1005 from sportsbook on April 6th. Recieved check today April 30 via DHL. Debating whether to make a deposit as sportsbook poker is easy money, but don't want to sweat the withdrawals.

    Bill, did management hint to their financial stability? I'm assuming you talked to them. If not, who did you get the information from?

    Check Received!!!!!

    I've been waiting to post this forever, but I got my check today in the mail! Like other people said, just a plain white envelope from a P.O. Box in Buffalo. Check is from a german outfit.

    Here are the relevant details for those still waiting on their checks that are over the DHL amount ($2K or $2.5K)

    -Originally requested on Feb. 20th
    -Put back into my account in March with a 5% bonus
    -Requested as check withdrawal on March 26th
    -Received e-mail that check was processed on Apr. 2nd
    -Received e-mail that check was mailed on Apr. 4th
    -Received another e-mail after calling CS that check was actually mailed on April 24th due to processor backlog.
    -Check was printed on April 26th and postmarked on the 26th
    -Received check today - Apr. 30th

    Everyone - Good luck. I started checking this forum when there were 3 pages on it, never thought that I'd wait until page 98 to get paid. I think until this whole internet gambling thing gets sorted out I'm not gonna do any more gambling - I can't sweat this thing a second time.

    Exactly,they combined my 2 large amounts and they were processed in Germany and I received my check this past Saturday as stated in earlier pages.I dont know if those couple of people on here really worked for Sportsbook.com are just came on to start trouble.As far as them staying open,who knows,I probably wont use them until this ca-ca straightens out at the very least.They only owe me about 500.00 and was processed recently and should be receiving it soon by DHL.I'm glad i didnt request any bank-wires though.Spanks.

    Quick update asked for two withdrawals. One for 1000 on April 10th and one for 1775 on April24th received e-mail last wednesday that the first check was sent regular mail although I requested express. Personally I have dealt with this site and started with playersonly.com back in 1997 and never had a problem with payouts, the situation now seems to be different today. I've used intertops, sportbet, wsex and legendz and I find the sportsbook interface very easy to navigate. Being a compulsive closet gambler the ability to place a bet in a matter of secs is important--but getting paid on the rare moments I do get lucky seems even more important. That said I think I'm 2/5 to see a check in the next 72 hrs. I'll keep everyone posted.

    3/19/07-3/21/07 update. NOTHING FROM SPORTSBOOK.COM YET. THEY SAID 3 WEEKS AGO THAT THEY WILL LOOK INTO IT. I CALLED TODAY AND THEY ARE STILL LOOKING INTO IT. HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO LOOK INTO A WIRE THAT WAS SENT 45 DAYS AGO?

    Got My Wire Unbelievable!!!!!!!

    Hey guys I have been waiting so so so patiently for my money from these books ever since the begining of FEB.
    I got an email on the 19th saying a wire is sent out for one
    of my withdrawals for 8k and yes you guess it amazingly it
    appeared in my account 25 less amount still pending. I thought that I would never see this money again but its good to get something after 3 months. I still have four withdrawals pending for 4k, 9k, 14k and 6k. I haven't gotten any emails sent by them for these yet. They are still processing. By the way it was BofA.

    first time poster

    Hi all,

    This is my first time posting, but i have been following this thread for a few weeks. I have about 25k in queue in the form of a wire. Until now I have not been too worried about receiving my funds. However, sportsbookcom is correct. I just spoke to someone at Sportsbook.com, and the live chat will no longer be available after 9pm starting tonight. WTF is going on. ARe they really in financial trouble? Really starting to get worried as I (like everyone else) have been counting on receiving these funds.

    Thanks,
    J_star

    I also got an email from them "
    We are pleased to inform you that your withdrawal from 15-Mar-07 has been processed and was sent to you as follows:

    $5,380.36 was sent on 10-Apr-07 as a check via courier to the address that we have on file. This should reach you within 2-3 weeks.

    Feel free to contact us if you have any further questions about your withdrawal or any other issue related to your account.

    I waited the 15 business days and nothing. I called them and they said it was sent to the processor on the 10 and should go out this week in the next batch. It sucks

    Just a quick update I did receive the first check today via DHL for 1000. The request was from April 10th so the first check did come today but via DHL not regular mail as per the email from last Wednesday.

    I agree with you. They have been checking on a lost wire for me and they still do not have an answer after 45 days. I called today and guess what? They are still checking on it. Sportsbook.com is going out of business fast.

    I don't know what to believe. But I doubt a sportsbook that was advertising on billboards in Los Angeles and Las Vegas is going out of business. Just don't see it happening.

    Believe or not I was thinking like you before. But Im just helping you out with my info doesn't benefit me any bit.
    I don't know how or what is going to happen to SB all
    I know is I still got 33k stuck in processing and just now got my first 8k. Im as fustrated as everyone else here is. People
    who stay on this thread will eventually go crazy. I've actually requested my winnings on jan 23, and right before that week I got 4 checks for 10k each from them by FED EX very quick.

    You requested your funds on Jan 23rd and didn't get them before SB lost thier processors in Feb. That's very strange, and a bit scary. I requested some sizeable amounts in early feb and got them all.

    Here's my update. First they said they processed a $5400 check for me on April 10th. I requested it around the 28th. Then they updated me and said the processor was backlogged and it would be sent between the 23rd- 28th. Now they are saying it should go out sometime this week.

    SO basically what they are saying is that they themselves now have a 4 1/2 week backlog. Thier processors also have a 3 week backlog. And once the funds are sent, you have to wait another 2-3 weeks. So all in all it's now a 9-10 week wait.

    Don't worry guys, they still feel confident that the backlog is shifting and processing times are improving

    Just got my last check today.

    Good luck those who are still waiting.

    One last time for those that are waiting on wires from 3/19....ASK TO HAVE IT PUT BACK INTO YOUR ACCOUNT....THEN WITHDRAW $2000 DAILY UNTIL YOU CLEAR OUT YOUR ACCOUNT. I KNOW SOME OF YOU ARE WAITING ON 50K PLUS, BUT WOULDN'T YOU RATHER GET SOMETHING SLOWLY THAN NOTHING AT ALL.....THE WIRE PROCESSORS SUCK. INSTEAD OF COMPLAINING ON HERE DAILY, STEP UP & MAKE A MOVE.

    CHECKS DELIVERED BY DHL ARE TAKING BETWEEN 14 - 21 DAYS FROM WITHDRAW DATE TO DELIVERY.

    HEY, WHAT DO I KNOW THOUGH....RIGHT?

    WHAT I DO KNOW IS I'M NOT OWED ONE RED CENT FROM SPORTSBOOK ANYMORE.

    GOOD BYE

    I am officially done with this thread.

    Take my advice....Bill Dozer also said in an earlier post....checks from DHL are WORKING DAMMIT.IF YOU WANT YOUR MONEY, GO GET.

    MARC I dont know exactly whats going on but I do believe that they will pay us. They have no clue how or when our money is coming. No use asking the CS people. My request before was for 40k was received immedaitely but then I requested another for 21k and that one was stuck eversince from late January till. They use to pay really quick but after this problem they have been screwed up. my thinking is that if they were to close shop they wouldn't even pay me this 8k. And I would be the customer they would really wana close shop on because these are mostly winnings.

    yeah. Bill mentioned it was 2500. To be safe though, everything I have seen & heard of that came by way of DHL was 2k or under.

    The processor handling those withdrawals actually seems to have their act together

    Another thing, on all my checks, i have not been charged a fee for DHL delivery. I think it's safe to say that they are not charging their customersfor the delivery(which should be the case anyway). But, I think this shows a sign of faith....If they were gonna go under, why wouldn't they be charging delivery fees for many DHL deliveries within a months time. EveryoneI have been in contact with that has received DHL has not been charged delivery fee, even if they had mutltiple checks sent....

    that is a good sign....If you were low on $$$, you would have to charge delivery on the 2nd, 3rd , 4th ect. checks. A struggling company would not eat that fee

    wire received

    I have been watching this thread since late march. Small time player. I requested a cash out $800 on Mar 23. They gave me a million different stories when I pestered them twice a week. They finally kept the same story the last week or so that my wire was processed on April 17, and to wait up to 15 bus days. I finally got my wire about noon today. Shows as pending, but it is there. I'm taking the summer off, but will make sure to research my sportsbook carefully when I buy in again for football season. Good luck to the rest of you.
