    I'm no fan of BetPhoenix but perhaps you missed this part:


    • Person to person money transfers ONLY (other deposit methods do not apply).

    they said that i hadn't met my makeup number from my previous deposit. they said that promotions department doesn't take this into account when they make bonus offers.

    I guess they have two strategies:

    1. Try to get their act together and offer a legitimate service to try to compete with the US state sportsbooks once they open

    2. Try to rape the player for everything they can get before everyone jumps ship to the US state sportsbooks

    Looks like BetPhoenix has opted for number 2

    Usually books will let you off the hook after 30 days. Heritage will even make you clear your last withdrawal before a new bonus can be applied, even after 30 days.

    Im not trying to defend the book here but it’s common procedure. Lots of customer service people would not catch this when you initially called. Happens a lot.

    If if they were crooks, they would not let you withdraw, or they’d give you the bonus and shaft you later.

    But since they called you with the offer, they should honor the bonus.

    that's bullshit!! You know how many times I've made deposits to books after I've made payouts and they still offered me bonuses! If they offered the bonus then they have to honor it- plain and simple! I play at this book and have been for years- what the fuk is going on over there?

    I laugh at these some of these bonus books. there is ZERO reason to play there if not getting a bonus. You can play at bookmaker and get basically unlimited 25% cash bonuses with an easy roll and 3 hour hour bitcoin payouts. Or play at Betphoenix with no bonus and 5 day bitcoin payouts. The only reason half these books are worth bothering with is the freeplay bonus.

    I stick up for lots of real sh1tty sites. I won't put any more money into BetPhoenix,SkyBook,or Betmania again. I don't trust any of them anymore. They do way too many sketchy things and always tell you one thing and do another. I'm just glad I've gotten all my money from them out.
