    Betstars.eu (Pokerstars) - Fraud?

    I have sent my 3 Documents over 20 Days ago and my account is still frozen and it looks like alot of people
    have problems with this Bookie according to their own forum and twitter.

    https://twitter.com/StarsSupport/with_replies there are numerous people who are waiting over months for just the verification. They don't even answer on Emails you basically get an automatic email answer.


    How is something like this allowed, they take your money let you place the bet but u can't withdraw or even sort the problem out. I mean it's just the verification process it shouldn't take longer than 24 Hours how is everybody on hold for more than 20 Days.


    Did i just lose my money, i have alot of money on that site i even planned to go to holidays with that money is there any chance they will verify my account?

    Same here: https://www.sportsbookreview.com/for...-response.html

    I'm waiting almost 5 weeks for just 88 EUR. They are ignoring all of my emails.

    FWIW, Betstars New Jersey pays out the same day, usually within an hour. Not much to offer though, same generic lines that are available everywhere else.

    Quite intriguing, will watch this story. When Pokerstars is taking so much rake in, it shocks me they arenít paying quick in their other offerings. Keep us all updated and please report back if you do get paid.

    This Malta licensed .EU version of their brand is not looking very good for them.

    No.

    I would be more confident that the brand owners would not let that happen.

    Hopefully this operator they have with .eu is just disorganized.

    Something fishy is going on with pokerstars/betstars. They are basically screwing their customers, taken away rakeback for poker players and now giving sports players problems with withdrawls. Does not seem like a very reputable company any more since the Amaya takeover. They have at times taken very long to reply to my email (I am in the UK). A company of their size, the world's favourite place to play online poker, should have a phone number and also a live chat service.

    My best advice is: Be patient.

    I had to wait almost 5 weeks for a reply but then everything was resolved very quickly.

    Don't know what to do actually.
    They said the account will be checked within 6 months but still no response.
    I once tried to contact them end of october and they just replied that the check is not done and i shouldn't contact them.

    Once again i tried to contact them last week but they didn't answer yet.

    Can anyone help me with this case?

    Betstars.eu have refused to discuss player complaints with SBR.

    We also tried contacting Betstars.com asking for assistance to get their Malta licensed partner to reconsider to no avail.

    Betstars.eu are registered with IBAS as an independent ODR service. That would be your next step.

    After almost 2 years i contacted them 2 weeks ago and they surprisingly replied.
    Unfortunately several screens from my ID, Bankstatement, asianconnect withdrawal page, ecopayz and binance account werent enough to verify myself.

    The only downside 2 years ago were they didn't answer to emails and it was hard to contact them and get a clear answer. I think they fixed that they reply withing 1 hour now at least something positive to say about them.
