    BetDSI new site

    It looks like 2 sites in one.

    The new sports book seems to have some reduced juice in some sports but the retro book does not.

    There are also some sports/props listed in one but not the other.

    Also lines are different in each Nationals -115/+105 in new and -117/+107 in retro book.

    SBR or anyone have any have any better insight on this?

    Interesting observations. The old site was trash so the change is welcome, even if imperfect, IMO.

    Also in the new section you can only do straights and parlays, while in the old (retro) you can also do teasers and If bets. It is like having 2 books in one and I hope they keep it that way.

    5Dimes has the same situation with their "Sports Betting Prime", which seems to be using the same software as BetDSI

    Wow
    just played Phillies over 8 1/2

    at DSI main site it was listed at over 8 1/2 (-120)

    at dsi retro site site it was listed at over 8 1/2 (-120)

    looked like the same line

    the over should be 60 to win 50 or 60 to get back 110

    But, at main site at the time of wager it was 60 to get back 109.80 or 60 to win 49.80 !!!!

    but at the retro site it was 60 to get back the full 110

    seems like the main site was ripping me off 20 cents on a 50$ winner

    It just means they are two different lines and they are storing the odds behind the scenes in decimal format. The two decimal odds are slightly different but when converted to American format and rounded to the nearest whole number (because thatís what American odds look like), they both come out to -120.

    Itís not ripping you off. Just choose the one that gives you the best payout.

    You are. Itís just that the American odds format does not have enough significant digits t give you the precision youíre assuming.

    I actually belong to many books which work this way. The American odds are rounded for display only and your stake / win is calculated based on the underlying decimal odds. For example, Bovada is one.

    Hopefully I can answer this soon. I requested a 4k bitcoin payout Tuesday morning and am still waiting on it. "Likely today", but that's what they said yesterday. In the past, I could usually count on same or next day BTC payouts.

    Same. I'd like to know. In June, they were paying 5k btc max same day most times if requested early morning or next morning at the latest. Then, in July a smaller btc amount and took them 3 days and lots of "likely" and "it may" was the status but then they paid.

    I took a 4k BTC withdrawal yesterday morning around 10 and got it at 11pm. Strange that you've been waiting since Tuesday. Let us know when it comes in.

    Now they are saying I was supposed to send in a confirmation email after requesting the payout. News to me, but I haven't done a payout with them since last year. I just sent it, so hopefully I can finally collect today. Did you have to send in a confirmation email to verify your request? If so, did they send you an email after your payout request or are you just supposed to send them confirmation on your own?

    Update: I have just received the 4k. BTW, I received their payout confirmation in my junk mail. So I'm guessing they sent me something Tuesday after I requested it, and it also went to my junk file and I missed it. This could explain the delay. Anyway, all's well that ends well.

    They do their payouts like 5dimes does now. Making you confirm everything via email. My last one took 24 hours but i didnt confirm the payout until after business hours so not bad at all

    Just an FYI, when you bet baseball in the new book, your bets are "action". If you want to specify starters, you have to do so in the retro book.

    they have me limited to $50 bets, even on mlb sides

    it will be a lot of fun making 800 max bets just to clear the rollover, and live bets don't count apparently

    Yes, They started doing this. Very similar to dimes BTC confirmation email. I actually like it because there's a record of the BTC address I give.

    That's unacceptable. If they won't increase your limits, they need to refund your deposit.

    i'll play with the limits, just would've liked to know ahead of time... can understand on props/team totals/etc but limiting me to $50 on a mlb or nfl game when others can bet $5000 is downright ridiculous

    now they have 200% sports bonuses??!!

    after asking dsi about rollover, it appears that many sports bets count toward rollover but still show up as 0 under "rollover contribution"

    I'm being told that there's now a 10% fee on bitcoin withdrawals, that is a massive fee.

    Looks like there is a 10% fee if you deposit via cc and then withdraw via BTC

    Has anyone else had any issues in the past couple of days using the new sportsbook? I can only use the "retro" one.

    Thanks guys, just wanted to make sure it wasn't me. I was starting to get used to the new sportsbook too. They seemed to have a few issues since the re-launch.

    Always free bitcoin payouts (300 or more) if you deposit using bitcoin or you are a Diamond level.
