    4 Years ago everyone knew about this. But people continued to stay with this book. I don't know if the lines are soft? Or their constant line movements a certain way... tips off plays? But... what does it matter if you win... they can't pay you.

    Why would anyone play with a place that takes 3 to 5 weeks to pay you anyway......

    If we know about $220K, the real figure might be $2m+.

    Most bettors don't know what a sports forum is!

    How could they be hurting so badly with all the total squares that play there? That's so weird to me.

    Is this just limited to Sportsbook.ag or does it include all of the books using their software, like Hollywood, sportfanatik, etc.?

    I've seen a few playersonly complaints on here... I would imagine its all skins as I don't believe they held seperate owners.

    Seems like a pretty solid list.

    There should be only a few books people, especially at SBR, should deal with. The benefit from rogue lines doesn't seem to outweigh the risk of losing funds.

    I hate to say it, but it may even be worth playing into -110 lines to stay safe, if you have to.

    The rest seems to not be worth discussion.

    KVB and Moneyshot,
    you guys are absolutely right....I've been a long time member here on SBR since '07...the reason I joined this forum and website was because of sportsbook.ag (back then it was sportsbook.com)...along with Pinny, sportsbook.ag was an A+ book with no payout problems...I was with them for at least 8 years until the shit hit the fan circa '07...payouts were slow and almost non-existent...that was when I realized that sportsbook.ag rating had plummeted and they were on the blacklist and avoid list of most gambling forums...this was a major shock to the vast majority of gamblers because there have never been any problems in the past...to make a long story short, the most epic gambling related thread of all-time was created here at SBR...you'll see some veteran posters and "blasts from the pasts" like durito, shamswoof, myself (), Bill Dozier, and many, many, more...IMO, it was the thread that literally put SBR on the map because it brought awareness to books that stiff and don't pay!...and the rest is history!...

    Like 12 years ago I played at sportsbook. Was in just getting into college got sucked in by the bright lights and fancy site never had a problem. But man seeing this stuff why would you play there when you likely won't get paid. And if you do they say 3-5 weeks. 5 dimes will pay you in 3-5 hours! Honestly don't feel bad for people who refuse to even do a little research before depositing money.

    anyone who plays at this book honestly deserves to lose their money. Its been years that people have said this book sucks. Its the idiots that keep depositing in them that allows them to never pay or change their ways. I dont even think SBR should help the people in this book. Theres enough warnings out there already

    this happens often. people have always gotten payed. every year or two they have processor problems. it gets fixed. people start getting paid faster. not saying anyone should play there. why would you. play where you get paid fast. but unless this is different this time, everyone will get paid. it will just be taking 6-8 weeks again. i blame the US government. that's what started the problems back in 2007 and it is the reason again. sending money to the states is getting harder and harder. to avoid this if you are in the US-quit gambling offshore. that's my plan.

    The US government is a problem, but not sportsbook.ag's right now. Their problem is they ran their business like a ponzi scheme for years, they pay during football when deposits are coming in and slow pay during low season its just finally catching up to them. You'll probably see some super bonus offer right before football so they can pull a canbet.

    My 2-cents, they sometimes have delayed pmts. But they do pay. Just be patient.

    the US government is everyone's big problem. they decide to do something and it gets done. including bombing countries or going in to arrest the leaders. and it's the biggest problem for US facing sportsbooks. that one problem closed many books. and makes it difficult for even the best of them. they should never be underestimated. ever since i could put a thought together, i loved my country and hated the people running it, whoever they are.

    Relaxxxxx, I understand the problems with processing due to the government, but why does it seem like sportsbook are the only book that regularly has these issues every year

    Have you ever heard of heritage payouts lasting more then 2 weeks? 5dimes?

    why are they exempt from processor issues.

    Carbon rep told me yesterday nothing to worry about and that new timeframe was only for new requests. Then another rep emails me today telling me mine would now be 6-8 weeks. They aren't paying out, removing live chat was first major sign things are shit at these dumps.

    Their processors do both in and out. Their processor issue is that they have no money in there to issue payouts and either are unwilling to fund from reserve funds or do not have reserve funds.

    That's too much time to wait. How are they doing this bad? I thought they had deep pockets. At this point they are using new deposits to make old payments.
