    SBR Bodog Update

    We are currently tracking several dozen Bodog complaints.

    90% of these issues are slow pays. There are very few bounced checks, so when a player actually get a check, so far those checks are going through.

    Most of the accounts we are tracking haven't been paid, but right now the average wait for payment seems to be over 40 business days, with the average from most recent payouts being 47 business days.

    At this point Bodog is simply telling us that everyone is in line for payout and they will pay as fast as their processors can put out payments. Unless a player has made person to person transfers as the primary deposit method, and is a long time customer, p2p isn't being offered as a withdrawal payout.

    Players have asked if players outside the US are experiencing delays, and based on the complaints I have, the answer is no. This looks to be a payment processor issue and not a funds issue. European and Asian players are being paid in a normal time frame and not slow payed.

    Glad to hear that this Ky. crackdown isn't making things worse than what they already are yet. Hopefully Bodog will get there processing a bit more streamlined in the near future for there clients.

    The ** payouts work like a charm, just go and pick up the cash but they've added some wonderful fees for the convenience $80 bucks for 500-1000, $150 bucks for 1000 -3000, so in many case that's 10% or higher- too high. At the most they should be charging what it cost just to send the money and it sounds like there's some juice ontop of it. I'd like to hear the justification for that. Maybe a mod can ask them.

    ** or **?

    Did you have to deposit several times via that method before they'd pay you out that way? If so, how many times?

    I received 1 payment via **, then they said I had to make more deposits that way, but they wouldn't say how many.

    Thats total bull, if you are paying fees they should pay you any way you want it, including sending a butt boy on a jet to your house!

    I was told more than one deposit of 100 bucks min, they refund the fee and that seemed to work as I did 2. But there answers are sketchy, one rep said I wouldn't have to do any since my last deposit was via Neteller which is no more and another rep said 2 wouldn't be enough... They say it's currently in a testing phase and it doesn't seem to be offered to everyone.

    1 check received today, more to come (hopefully). Feeling better about Bodog, will feel even better when I'm fully paid.

    I have been an avid bettor for years and I been playing with many different sportsbooks and I just gotta say I hate reading bullshit from people crying about delayed payouts. Before the US legislation towards online gambling was put into place it was a walk in the park to play with offshore and not claim my money to uncle sam. Since then its known throughout the community that offshore books are having issues we dont need to be assholes and attack them on the phone. No matter what the final answer is the same, we get our money!! Stop whining

    I think you're right for the most part, and until a book goes belly-up on me I can't say otherwise, but I also believe in the squeaky wheel gets the grease. I also don't see a problem with a customer who's owed a sizeable amount to let the book know they're alive and kicking and waiting for their payout. If nothing else it puts them on the radar.

    So, last night I requested payouts totalling 5000.00. Hopefully I will eventually get them. First time ever cashing out. If or when I get the checks, is it ok to deposit into checking account or do I try to cash at a check cashing place? May sound dumb, but curious as it is first time
    Thanks,

    Thanks,
    Requested $2400 on Oct 11...received Nov 5. Alot faster than normal....I deposited into my checking and after the bank made me feel like a common criminal with their questions, told me it will be on hold til the 14th. Not too bad, imo and it seems Bodog is really trying to improve. Now I just hope the check clears They even comped my account $50 cuz they sent the check to my old address and I had to chase the fed-Ex guy all over town!!

    why would you complain about ** fees , atleast you are getting paid if all of the books charged a 10% fee and paid out in a day i think most of us would love it. It isn't like vegas where they reach into the till and pay you , so lets give them benefit of the doubt
