    Bodog: The End of an Era

    Go to my SBR Page and listen to the APCW Video from 4:00 on. (Or do nothing and listen to the whole thing).

    The only thing I like about bodog is their setup. What other book can you get scores and see how the lines closed?

    They can pay quickly if they are motivated. I got mine overnighted after SBR got involved.

    I ended up reloading with them because they are the only ones that accept my debit card and also the 20% bonus isn't too bad. Hopefully they will get their shiit together when I withdrawal hopefully end of football.

    Also they are not processing ANY payouts right now and all of their payment processors were located in the US (idoits!). So when they give someone a timeframe of how long a payout will take, it is just a smokescreen as they have no way of sending checks to US right now.

    I believe the host misspoke and meant not processing any payments to US only.

    So, let me get this straight.

    You complained and complained that you were never getting paid, bodog was done, etc. Finally your check comes (which you mistakenly believe had anything do with sbr) and you are willing to bet me $1,000 that bodog wont be in business in a year.

    After all of that time and effort, and bs, you turn around and send money right back to them?

    durito is like the poorman's Vanzack on Covers. Bragging about how rich they are and how great a capper they are. Yet all their posted picks lose. Just another Internet millionaire know-it-alls. In other words dime a dozen.

    Final word about Bodog. My beef with them was they wouldn't pay me. Once they did the beef was over. Sure I would've preferred faster payout but then I had no idea that the US government was hounding them. So the fact that they were making an honest effort and not BSing me earned my trust back. Not that difficult to understand this.

    And if I have another issue with them I know a call to SBR would resolve it.

    Standard business day in offseason Bodog probably gets near a thousand WD requests in a day, give or take. Football season prob 2x that or more, maybe way more some Mondays.With everything going on you can be sure to multiply that with everybody wanting their 300 bucks and change now.
    Bill calls, they pull a posters request out of the middle of the pile and turn the magic tap on for 30 seconds and shut it off again for the rest of America?
    Ok. Let's go with that.

    The better for us B+ books that day in day out try to help the us player and offer them better funding and payout options

    Unfortunately some do not see that.

    Durito pretty much goes out of his way to not mention how much money he makes.

    The exact amounts, sure, but he also goes out of the way to let it be known he's a pro.

    This seems to be the reason recreational players insist on sticking with bodog. Are there any reputable books that take debit/************ from players within the US?

    I've never seen him post exact numbers agreed, but he often claims to have been booted from a number of books for beating them.

    I haven't seen a durito pick posted in any of the forums I frequent. (NHL, CFL, MLB)

    I've always said Bodog needs to get rid of their free monthly payout policy. All the rifraffs with their $100 payouts clogging the system. Institute a $50 payout fee and it would cutdown on the bottleneck.

    As for Bill calling..... just like anything in life (such as getting soldout Laker tickets; getting out of serving in Nam) it's good to have connections.

    And we're so thankful durito never brags. I mean if I hear another "got my 5-figure payout in 5 min" I think I'll go postal.
