    SBR Sportsbook/Contest Platform Update

    Attention SBR Members,

    As we gear up to move onto our new and improved contest platform, there are a couple things that need to be done in preparation for the launch:

    First, the old data pipeline that powers odds for legacy contests and the sportsbook will be turned off next week - targeting Tuesday, January 17th.

    What does this mean? No new contests will run on the legacy platform now that Beat the Bullseye has finished. All other existing contests between members have concluded with winnersí points paid out.

    This also means wagers in the sportsbook & trivia will no longer be available. Over the past year, it has become apparent that the existing system is not sustainable to continue operating with. It was built on ancient code and ultimately, investing in a new contest platform is a much more practical solution.

    Secondly, all outstanding sportsbook balances will be transferred over to membersí forum wallets. This will not be completed right away. The sportsbook will remain accessible for members to login and make the transfer themselves if they wish. However, any balances not transferred by the end of January will be done automatically.

    With that in mind, members should try to use their remaining free play points in the sportsbook as soon as possible.

    We are very excited to transition to a modern, reliable contest platform. The flexibility to run unique daily, weekly & season-long contests with betpoint integration will unlock new opportunities that were not possible on the old system.

    We will follow up in this thread once the checklist items above have been completed.

    Cheers

    Well they advertised 1,700,000 point freeplays will be given away in the football contest and one week after the contest is over they are closing the Sportsbook which was the vehicle to convert these freeplays to betpoints.

    I mean SBR Andy will have a great career if he decides to become a politician.

    Thanks for the update. Any chance we can somehow get the Saturday, Monday games up (NFL) in the sportsbook so we can use our Free Plays? Or basically No Soup For You?

    I hope this means some meaningful betpoint buy-in contests for cash prizes. Currently there are so many little contests to win betpoints, yet with no actual use for betpoints. Promising they'll have some vague purpose in the distant future isn't enough, especially given previous broken promises. SBR should be giving people reasons to remain interested and engaged

    You've been telling us for over a year that you are working on a new, improved, modernized SBR. You've given no dates as to when any of this will happen. All that has happened so far is that you have one by one taken away the things that worked here and that people liked. What makes it unsustainable? and if it truly is, then surely after 15 months you have the new improved system ready to roll out as soon as you shut down the old system. Why wouldn't you, any 5th grader could tell you that would be the way to do it. I strongly doubt that this is actually the case though. You haven't added a single new and improved feature here in 15 months despite your repetitive claims of that being your goal. You've taken all of the trust and goodwill the posters had toward SBR and flushed them down the toilet. The onus is now on you to rebuild that trust and goodwill if you want this site to continue being vibrant.

    So does this mean there will be a new sportsbook once the old one is trashed? Does Andy even read these threads after starting them? I feel like they just pile up with questions and no answers lol

    Same issue with the feed we've been experiencing for most of football season. Some events just do not get imported, so unlikely the rest of the games get added.

    There will not be a new sportsbook, rather a new contest platform instead. More to come there.

    This is a good idea Andy.

    The buy-in format for the old Bowl Contest was very popular.

    Non-pros cannot join the cash prize contests right now. I think it is safe to assume there will be more benefits to come.

    Either way, you are smarter to use your non-pro points to apply for pro membership for 1500 points whilst the offer remains available. No loss to you and might end up being helpful. https://www.sportsbookreview.com/forum/sbr-pro/
