    WARNING - Do not post at dimeline.eu

    Dimeline.eu stole about $4,000 from me.

    I deposited $500 and built up to $4,000. When I got about three-quarters of the way of meeting my rollover they closed my account and offered to pay me a fraction of my balance which I refused.

    It's a sportsbook scam in it's purest form. Offer a big bonus and hope you get fish that will bet on teams based on the color of their uniforms. If anybody wins, just call them "non-recreational" and refuse to pay them while the fish re-up.

    Stay away - post your money anywhere else!

    And before you asshats post why do people play at these crap books, I've made a good chunk of change sports betting so I like to use a small portion of my roll to give these startups a shot - sometimes I find gems and I've only been burned twice - betislands and dimeline. The purpose of the post is to warn those who haven't been as lucky as I have and can't take the hit.

    Peace and love peace and love.

    They have been teetering on the edge of it for years.

    Sorry to hear about your experience and probably not a lot can be done but you are welcome to shoot in a sportsbook complaint form. If nothing else it will make sure the admin who look after the ratings know about it for sure.

    good question. SBR is the best at what it does. but I would not trust the ratings of sportsbooks on the low end. listen to the posters. ask questions by starting a thread about the sportsbook you want to use. other posters will tell you about them. often the people who run the forums know the people running the sportsbook or get income from them. they become bias. like I said SBR is the best but when it comes to ratings I would not trust them either. only trust other gamblers to tell you how good or bad they have been treated at any sportsbook. dimeline should have been blacklisted 10 years ago a month after they started up . they were lying already.. optional is great , and the best you can have on your side wiling to help everyone but dimeline has always sucked the owner is a liar and thief. he gets away with it for all these years I think because he is a friend to most who live on gambling, friendly with forums owners, top brass. and above all a great liar. convincing people all these years he will fix your problem. it's a shame you will lose your money and SBR is part of the problem when it comes to dimeline. good luck in the future.

    That place is a joke. Complete scumbag running the place. Im not going into details but they tried to scam me a few years ago. Avoid. Please don't ever send these jerkoffs money. There are so many top rated books that have always paid. No reason to gamble on whether you will get paid or not. It's bad enough stressing the games.

    Optional - Did that - I was told by sbr that dimeline wouldn't respond so they won't ever receive a ratings upgrade, which I found to be a very odd response from SBR. I then asked why they aren't being blacklisted with a warning to other players and SBR did not respond.

    If you like I can forward you the e-mails.

    So the asshat that would probably get paid by crs if he just changed his payout method has his story posted on your website as a cautionary tale but I get 4k balls out stolen from me and there's nary a mention and no rating change? Please explain.

    Everyone at sbr, including you seems to be taking a ya theyre pretty bad but attitude, and it maked zero sense why if you are trying to fill a role within the online gaming industry that you claim you are trying to fill why you wouldn't blacklist them and tell players not to post there. What more could you possibly need? Read my complaint and this thread!

    This place won't pay you especially now that you started a thread about them. I wish you would have done a search about them and you would have found out the headaches they caused me just for winning a couple thousand off them. This is actually the only place that flat out stiffed me. No matter what you say or try to say to SBR they won't be able to get you your money from them trust me on that. There really is no advice to be able to get this worked out other than stop pubic-ally bashing them, which they will read and make it worse. Sorry!!! I understand what is happening to you!!!

    Hi harvesters,

    Good question. Dimeline has been blacklisted before and is even still just a half-letter away. There have been many reports of sharp players being roughed up and mistreated. Dimeline was given a slight upgrade off the scam list after the owner of their parent company bailed out players at another fallen industry sportsbook (Parlaymakers) years back, but may very well end up back on the blacklist. We receive very little feedback from Dimeline players.

    They aren't paying me. It's been three months. They basically told me to eff off, then SBR alledgedly contacted them and were ignored. It seems like the next step would be for SBR to tell people to avoid at all costs but instead they sit there as a D rated book while a ton of other books are D- (including some that are OK) or F. Makes no sense. And then SBR reports on this clown who is getting slow paid from another book who would probably get his money if he would just take it through bitcoin? I'm not suggesting a conflict an interest because I have no direct knowledge of one....but I see that it was been suggested by others in the thread. Sadly, I see no other possible explanation. How Book Steals Player Money plus Book has History of Stealing Players Money plus Player Complains to SBR plus Book Ignores SBR doesn't equal Book gets Blacklisted by SBR if SBR equals Industry Watchdog escapes me unless there is a piece of the above equation I am missing.

    The more you attack SBR like it's our problem that you did zero research before depositing, the less I give a shit about your 'problem'.

    Chances are you are just a scammer that was caught out by dimeline anyway eh?

    Could that be why all you seem to care about is changing SBRs rating??

    It was explained why they have remained where they are. Your highly suspicious complaint should have no bearing on the rating IMHO.

    Is that what you've done? Here I am thinking you're trying to put the focus on me to take it off the fact that SBR hasn't performed it's self-proclaimed function. Silly me.

    It would have been different if I came on here whining like the guy in the crsports thread saying wah wah I didn't get paid. I didn't and haven't. I put my story out there as a cautionary tale, which in my apparently dishonorable opinion, is what SBR should have done. Instead you say you must be a scammer - doesn't bother me, it just makes you look bad.

    You are right about one thing - all I cared is about the SBR rating changing. I got scammed, that money is gone. So I did what you should -you try to prevent it from happening to others. Real dishonorable I know.

    Now I could care less. If this is how SBR reacts to this then clearly it's not the SBR I used to know. I get now why posts are about 6% of the volume they were 5 years ago.

    Shame on me - I should have clued in about sbr after betislands. Its just that sbr used to be SOOOOO good. All good things end I suppose.

    Naw man I really believe every word he is saying and I believe he isn't a scammer in any way. I know how they are and what they did to me for no good reason. They just make up what they want. This is really the worst book I have ever played at...Please give OP some credit here, it really suks to be in his position right now.

    I didn't disbelieve him either Legions. And think my first response gave him all the credit/sympathy he needed.

    I was just giving him a taste of the dumbass crap he was throwing at SBR for no reason. He even got an explanation from the boss about his question but just decided to ignore that like it didnt happen and ramp up the attack.

    You or I have no less evidence he isnt simply a caught scammer than he has that SBR is corrupt for not changing ratings over his one ultra important unconfirmed report. I was just being as unreasonable as he was and going on a half assed attack with no good reason to see if it helped him understand

    I'm with legions36-------This is really the worst book I have ever played at...

    I have said this same thing more than once here in different threads. been screwed for my money twice but got my money from them and still think they were the worse book. constant lies, this was only months into them opening years ago. spent more time on the phone with them than friends and family. scammers do better research before they deposit. feel bad for the op don't think he was scamming anyone here. . SBR should have a lot worse rating for them since the problems have been going on for years, you would think they would have made it to blacklisted when SBR was keeping up with the ratings of books better years ago.

    optional is a great guy always helping everyone with great advice.. who I think just got a little pissed at the SBR attack. but the scammer here is the sportsbook.

    SBR should do a better job with the ratings or don't have ratings or maybe just rate A,B and C books.there has to be a better way than the way it is now. I don't know. I do know everyone should do some research before they deposit anywhere. you can't count on one person or one forum to tell you, you need input from multiple sources. it's your money. pay attention or just pay.

    Just to be 100% clear, I do not think the OP is a scammer.

    And I agree Dimeline is to be avoided. Especially if you are a sharp bettor.

    I REALLY want to let this go but I can't let you miscast what's happened and what's been said when I've done nothing wrong, a lot right and have zero reason to have my credibility called out. SO......

    1. I didn't attack SBR - Someone else did and I said I couldn't see any other explanation. Responding to that by attacking me is behaviour consistent with someone who can't provide an explanation because the truth aint so good for them.

    2 You didn't disbelieve me? - "Chances are you a scammer that was caught out by dimeline" "Your highly suspicious compliant should have no bearing on the rating IMHO". If you thought it was so suspicious, or if you are lacking evidence about whether I am legitimate, why not take me up on my offer to show you my documentation before suggesting I am a scammer?

    2a. What is the scam you are suggesting I perpetrated? That I didn't actually file a complaint? That I wasn't actually at a 4K balance? That I actually was paid? That my account wasn't closed with my money withheld?

    3. Which part of "the bosses" explanation explains why dimeline wasn't blacklisted? He said they've been blacklisted before (so they have a history), and is a half-letter away (following an upgrade which means SBR finds them to be something less than a scam book). There have been many reports of sharp players being roughed up and mistreated (perhaps that is a subtle jab at me and where you gathered the courage to question my legitimacy -but really offers no insight as to why they aren't blacklisted). Then some relevant history then, but very well may end up back on the blacklist. We receive very little feedback from dimeline players. (Ive repeatedly seen rating downgrades without scores of people complaining - plus two sentences earlier he cited "many reports" of what would be considered feedback.)

    3a. Plus YOU said I did zero research....so if I did the whatever you consider to be sufficient research what would I have found out? That I shouldn't deposit there because it's a scam? If that's the case shouldn't they be blacklisted?

    4. This explanation is consistent with how my complaint was addressed. IMO, saying we're not upgrading them, or they are teetering, or there are only a D, and not warning players isn't good enough and addresses nothing.

    5. Your sympathy and name calling are irrelevant to me.

    I don't know if the op is a scammer or not. we both don't think he is. I think we both know dimeline is a scam sportsbook and I also know they should be avoided by everyone.

    there is always room for improvement, any thoughts on how the ratings for sportsbooks might be handled here a little better.

    What is the current status of this book? Is anyone wagering there and/or are they posting lines?

    Anyone have a phone number? I have not seen lines there for quite some time.
