    BAS doesn't grade as fast as 5 dimes did

    An SBR grade is based on ability to pay. Anyone's guess which should be higher although BAS would probably get some backing from 5Dimes so I'd give them the edge.

    As far as a sportsbook, there is no comparison. BAS is way better.

    GTBets is the worst. Stay away. Not only did they take away my $500 bonus when I signed up and deposited $500 in Bitcoin; they wanted My Drivers License, Utility Bill and other form of documents when I wanted a withdrawal. This is with a Bitcoin deposit. GTBets customer service talks to you like youíre a joke. I will never deposit 1 penny with GTBets ever again.

    I stay at Bookmaker now and always. Bookmaker treats their customers with respect and like they are family and their customer service blows away the shitty customer service of GTBets.

    I feel very safe with my money at Bookmaker. I canít think of any of books that are good for USA; maybe Nitrogen.

    Correct

    Live bets especially, for example.

    Betting on the 1st set live of tennis match isn't graded until the entire match is over, previously it was lightening fast at the end of the set

    Ask yourself this: How long has GTB been around and how long has BAS been around?

    GT superior. The book you are comparing them to is a popsicle operation, which is great for low level depositors and hit-and-run jerkoffs

    I don't have an account at GT Bets so I can't give you an honest assessment or comparison between the two but I can tell you I enjoy playing at BAS. I opened an account there after 5Dimes closed for American players and everything is pretty much the same. I like it there and would definitely recommend 5Dimes players looking for another book to head over to BAS.

    Based on their elimination of NASCAR and quick limiting, it is pretty certain that they aren't. But in a pinch, they probably would get some help so long as they are on the platform.

    GTBets is great for bonuses initially. After you cash out they disappear and they're useless after that.

    I agree that GTBets is a pretty crappy book, but the bolded isn't exactly atypical at offshore books.

    Yep, about half of them ask for all that stuff. The utility bill is so dumb.

    And 90% of the other half will sometimes ask for that stuff.

    Really? I get why they do it. It's an additional protection against fake IDs and gnomes.

    I researched GT Bets

    They love to document you to death and find ways to stall you even with Bitcoin Deposit methods which is silly

    BAS SUPERIOR EVERY WAY

    They do have bonuses come up from time to time 50% - 100% and they are always cash. They normally do them before a big sporting event starts . Also they are pretty generous on Xmas and your Bday with bonuses and points to cash in. You just have to peek at your % to make sure you do not miss a bonus upgrade .

    I deposited at GTbets, got the bonus, cashed out no issues.

    And unlike most books, they will track your rollover requirement with the sportsbook & casino combined, so you're not guessing or contacting the book inquiring how far along you are.

    I will agree that once you cash out with them the bonuses are done.

    However many players like myself don't care to take the bonus always anyhow.

    Because it's the easiest thing to fake ever. How hard is it to download an image of a utility bill and change the name and address.
    They are hassling the legit guys, and the scammers can get around it no problem. Just don't see the point.

    If they allow electronic documents, then I agree that is dumb. I didn't know they did that. Thought it had to be a picture of a physical bill. It's difficult to photoshop an image without leaving any trace. There is even software which can detect that an image has been tampered with.

    One time I sent a cell phone bill and they told me it wasn't recent enough. I edited the date and they accepted it.
    I'm all for security. But 2fa should be enough. Utility bills and pics of me holding my ID are too much. Just my opinion.

    some books will put your utility bill image though verification software and it will fail if you edited it.

    if it fails, you will be asked to send a photo of that same bill/screenshot and send it immediately after creation.

    if you don't, your money is gone.

    More difficult than you think these days at a lot of books.
