    Shady practices in BetDSI.

    I stopped using the book and will never go there again. I just want to warn people here not to make any live bets. They place the lives bets on AWAITING CONFIRMATION which they have up to 15 minutes to approve the bet which they can easily see if the odds are in their favor whether to confirm. I placed a few live wagers. The ones that process are usually the ones where the odds go against me and they almost always deny the live wagers that favor me.

    Live betting systems are stacked against real time action bettors.

    If you are betting on the basis of watching live action and submit bets when you see the play moving one way, this is going to happen at every live platform. Just one of the speed bumps to navigate if betting that way.

    From all the books that I have ever used, 5Dimes/BAS has the best live betting platform and sportsbook platform in general. The system accepts live bets almost instantly and if it does not accept, it lets you know immediately that odds changed or line is off the board. Either way you know instantly whether it is accepted or not. Unlike books like Bovada and DSI where the system processes or thinks about the wager for awhile and then eventually rejects the wager which is so frustrating. Give BAS a try and see how you like their live betting system.

    Bovada's system is ok. When they say wager successful then it is processed whereas BetDSI says wager successful and 10 minutes later REJECTS THE BET.

    Im not watching the game live. I place the bet according to when the odds the come up. It's not like I'm trying to get a bad line or something. I usually wait until there is a pause in the game as well so I am not sure what you are trying to say.

    I'm trying to say getting bets rejected due to action going in your favor is going to feel like it happens often at a lot of books if betting in the way I described.

    another problem with live betting is a lot of times the play you are waiting to see on tv already has happened and the book is adjusting the odds knowing the outcome of that play. i noticed that with wager web when i watch redzone.

    It takes a special kind of degen to continue placing wagers after the first one if they'll stall you for 15 minutes. Bookmaker and BetOnline are both under two seconds for me in major sports markets

    Thats what I usually do but even during commercial breaks they still place the bet on awaiting confirmation and can delay processing the bet for 15 minutes.

    BetDSI live is fine if you do it when it's a commercial. Any other time it's hard for it to go through.

    BetDSI has the worst rollover and bonus restrictions of any book, in my opinion

    All in the name of making it difficult to reach the rollover to be in a position to cashout, MyBookie is similar in this regard
