    I would think someone at sbr would have a direct line to the management at the book and have some sort of idea of whats going on

    We talking days? Weeks?

    That's all

    They definitely should have said if the pending bets were standing or if that data had been compromised. Many people probably had money on the games last night before the site went down. Say you had taken the Braves a lot of people wouldíve hedged a live line On the Dodgers when the score was 2-0. They mightíve not being unsure if the wagers were still going to stand on Betonline. They havenít given any update at all other than ďas soon as possibleĒ which we all really would have assumed.

    If Betonline had been able to give SBR a better estimate of when, they would have told you publicly themselves.

    I have to assume they just don't know yet. The way everything went dark at once makes me think they yanked it to stop a problem. Quite likely they are still making sure they know for sure exactly what happened, more than needing to fix too much.

    The less they say the longer it is going to take
    I mean if it was going to take 5 hours it would be easy to see and they would state that
    You know this is going to be long and ******
    Very least into next week

    They screwed their customers and they get what they deserve

    I'm beginning to think the BOL server caught Covid and passed it along to its siblings Sportsbetting and LowVig. The 3 of them will be isolated for the next 14 days.

    No better place to be on a college saturday than a Iowa sportsbook.

    They don't even make you wear a mask and you never have to sweat a payout or getting down.

    Can bet at window, kiosk or app

    Iowa is heaven!!!!

    If you're a square, play at square books. Call up WillHill and ask for the MicroPenis Package where you can have all you can eat $2 parlays and $20 square bets.

    For the men, there is simply no comparable alternative to offshore. Not happy BOL is down, but would kill myself before restricting my action to onshore books

    My guess... perhaps the cyber attack defaced all of the data, for example the account balances, existing bets, live bets, and so on, now they have to recover all of that and piece the entire site back together again... and wont have it up until they are sure its right and it cant happen again soon.

    For an offering this scale, automated jobs backup databases containing any accounts information. Additionally, they have backups in place to restore application/site state to as you would on your local machine. As they have explained, the wait is to identify attack that took/is taking place

    All of the whiners and complainers make me laugh. It must be exhausting going through life like that, Until someone tells me that either BOL has run away or my account balance and pending bet data are permanently wiped out, I couldnít care less. Itís senseless to worry about it in the meantime, People were saying 5Dimes wasnít going to pay people, but that was obviously wrong because they were paying people. Now people are saying BOL is going to steal funds but thatís obviously wrong because they wouldnít bother trying to convince us that theyíre working on an issue.

    Yeah itís a little annoying but not the end of the world. There are plays this weekend that you like like? Just play somewhere else then, there are dozens of options. Whenn BOL comes back Iíll continue playing there because they are customer friendly and have some of the best selections and odds,

    We have been in regular communication with BetOnline concerning this situation and have another call scheduled in an hour. They have assured us they are hard at work restoring the website. We will update when we have more news or an ETA to share. In the meantime you can also check along the Twitter feed for updated info: https://twitter.com/DaveMasonBOL

    We are currently experiencing some technical difficulties logging into the website. Our Technical department is aware & working to bring you a better customer experienceWe apologize for the inconvenience & will be back online soon

    My comment - if the issue persists for more than 2 hours it's probably worth starting a separate thread for the Bookmaker issue
