    How do these Garbage sportsbook managed to survive the time

    Oddsmaker and Betus, these have been spamming me both emails and mail since 2008, despite never depositing any money in the last eight years.

    For a D rated book, they must be generating a lot revenue through the years in order offset their expensive marketing campaign.

    I knew a guy who was using like an SBR rated D- sportsbook... I asked him why he continues to use them? He claims he was too scared to change. Didn't know of a better one?

    So rule of thumb is... there are some very old school people out there... just afraid to change.

    Oddsmaker been scamming big time for years. Bonafide thieves,but as Mr P.T Barnum said there is a sucker born every minute.

    About 10 years ago they owed this guy money he was getting worried so he contacted them and told them he's in bad need of his money and about to have a heart attack worrying about his funds arriving....they told him they do not send money to dead people thanks for updating the file. Case closed.lol.

    I played with them a few years ago and won $7,700 on MLB totals...it took three weeks to get paid via check but both checks cleared...I guess I was one of the very few and very fortunate that didn't get screwed by them...however, after reading up on them and all of the bad reviews, bad comments, F rating, etc. I decided never to deposit there again and just stick with Heritage, Bookmaker, and 5dimes (my three books).

    well enjoy that cause they owe me over 40k from many years ago well documented on SBR. so congrads. SBR investigated mine and others and just leave them at F but you dont see them mentioned as often as you should on the absolutely AVOID list. F- times 3

    Its interesting how the worst books often generate more money than the better books because they allocate more money to marketing and since gambling is illegal you really have do your own due diligence to find out which sites are rated F.

    Times that by potentially a million customer or more, even if it was a penny, that is still 100k.

    a million customers times a penny is not 100k... it's 10k

    and it doesn't cost a penny to send an email anyway

    I also included the mail buddy. Betus mails me a minimum 10 letters a years. US Stamps is 49 cents, so that's about $4.90 a person per 10 letters. 1,000,000 customers x $4.90 cents is a whopping $490,000. They must be very profitable to offset that added overhead expense.

    I cashed out well over $10,000 total there in the past. Even convinced them to change the prop outcome of total number of players to score in the Superbowl between the Steelers and the Cards from a loss to a push(They didn't realize that when a kicker kicks an extra point, that is considered a score)

    I still get Betus shit in the mail for both my wife and me every month. You can always tell it is from them because the envelopes are printed to make it look like they are written by hand.

    I logged into betus for the first time in years and saw I had a $50 free play with 5x win limit and could only bet on who makes first field goal during gb/den preseason game lol
