    youwager excludes SBR users from best bonuses

    So I used to get 100% FP deposits all the time at you wager... was a great deal. Then all of a sudden they lowered it to 30%, and the 100% was never available to me. I stopped using the site at that time.

    Today, a new rep called and offered me the original bonus again. After I sent the transaction, he said "Oh I messed up. You're an SBR guy, so you're not elegible for this." So they offered to give me the lower bonus (30%FP) or refund the money.

    Here's where this gets a little funny. I asked to speak to the reps manager, who is the head of the promotions department. I asked why "SBR guys" are excluded from their best bonuses. He said "Oh, because we get killed by them." I actually really appreciate the honesty. Youwager is a top book with fair guidelines and great liberal bonus policies. They allow you to withdraw winnings immediately and only apply the rollover on the original deposit/bonus amounts. I guess they just think SBR users are too smart and have various policies to limit the action from consistent winners. I can understand that and might do the same if I ran my own book.

    I hope my other books don't start limiting my bonuses.

    I had the same question. I imagined 100 people in costa rica scouring through the forums trying to match forum posts to action and yelling "I found one!" Haha. So when coordinating my withdrawal, I asked the question. They said: "Nothing fancy... when you signed up, you listed them as a referral source in the 'how did you hear about us' question."

    Thanks for sharing. We'll address your feedback with YouWager. It is common for sportsbooks to offer their users unique bonus perks based on how they categorize the traffic but we understand you may prefer one over the other.

    Thanks. Would love to hear how they respond to an official SBR request to review this policy.

    SBR guys are not offered the good bonuses because there are so degenerate, they will bite on 30%. Why offer 100%?

    This is far more likely than than the possibility that SBR referrals are "killing" them.

    I'm sure it has more to do with SBR as an affiliate than it does the action SBR members give to YW.

    I think the bigger problem here is how you were offered 100%, made the deposit, and then after deposit told you could only have 30%. If I am not mistaken....these guys have a history of this.

    Everything about youwager/betpop is legit.....except for the sales team. Who remind me of an used car dealership

    Don't kid yourself, smart i/t people can easily trace your I/P.
    There's apps too, GPS spoofing app is cool.

    Do yourself a favor, google Rip Gerber, known as "the sheriff of online gambling"
    He (his company Locade) can locate 5 billion devices anywhere on the planet.
    Companies like William Hill, Caesars, most of the reputable on line sites pay him shitloads of money just to keep their sites reputable.

    A decade ago, the cyber bad guys out numbered the cyber good guys 5 to 1, it's pretty much even now.
    10 years ago, syndicates could rob you blind, still happens, but it's rarer today.

    I could ramble all night.
    John McCafee just put out the first "hack proof" call phone.
    Android, though some don't believe it's truly hack proof.
    Now he's having fun playing with crypto moeny, genius yes, but a big time whack job too, but most geniuses are.
    Don't care, his stock made me beau coup coin.

    Not the first time they have gone back on something they promised to do for you if you sent them money. Would never play there again.

    I have no idea how they find out if you are SBR or not. SBR is a forum, it's not like we are all grouped together to bring down the books.

    I lost $5k on YW last period for the net loss bonus and I've already lost $5k on there since the Super Bowl. But I'm not eligible for the 100% reload bonus because I have an account here. Absolute nonsense.

    You got to youwager somehow. If you click a link here, it tells youwager that you came from here. Also, they ask where you came from when you sign up, I always put down SBR, i'm sure others do as well.

    Ask them.

    Or next time they ring you wanting a reload, ask the rep who your referrer was maybe.

    It will only be if they have you listed as an SBR referral or maybe they track where you first click to their site from either way.

    I don't know everything about SBR but over the years I have seen no evidence of SBR passing on info about players. After thousands of complaint cases not one book rep has ever said anything to me that would suggest that goes on.

    I did ask them. They said I clicked "SBR" checkbox when they asked me who referred me. So in fact, I told them.

    This is probably the answer. Obviously they will know if you used their links to sign up but for others that did not use SBR link they probably got names and account numbers that are SBR users from those contests.
