    Best books for NY residents

    I've been gambling for about 10-15 years and always used my local book. Finally decided to try and sign up for an online book so I could get better numbers and shop around. Bovada refused to let me sign up because I'm from NY anybody have any advice for me? Sick of all the juice i pay through my local and paying an extra 10-20% juice for a half point.

    you've been here for 4 years and you need to ask this question. look around the site for an A or A- rated book and then see if they will take you. don't quite get the NY restriction reason by the not that user friendly anymore (if ever) bovada. why did you choose them to make the switch anyway.

    Stick with the local wtf are u thinking???????????????????????????????? ????????????????????

    Your gonna given your personal info to some dirty Costa Ricans who will sell it for 5 bucks??????????? Does your local charge u in excess of 15% for a payout fee? Does he give u a check that takes a week to show up and 3 weeks to clear? Bet your local has more of a max withdraw of 600 lik betonline or 500 like 5d???

    What are u thinking???????? Online is shit don't listen to these guys they rarely win and almost never get payouts

    My local goes through a website, I just want some diff numbers so I can shop around a little bit and I've seen people posting for years saying they get -105 on a lot of lines. I rarly every get that. I wanted bovada Bc they seemed like they always had different numbers then my book did. I guess I'll try 5 dimes and heritage. Appreciate the help also why is this guy who loves locals so fn angry

    Lol. Heritage? They wouldn't let me sign up cuz they CLAIMED my phone I signed up with wasn't in my name which is absolute total garbage cuz it is a and always has been in my name. Bookmaker has 15 yr olds working on the weekend's. Graded my bet wrong then had the nerve to make me wait in hours for them to correct it, 9 hours. Magically after every fukkin game was over. Yea real nice hoping there. Also bookmaker doesn't process p2p on Sat morn til 11 a.m. eastern which is absolute garbage!!!!!!!! Other joint u mentioned I never even heard of. Maybe ur nutless, I'd rip ya off too.
