    There's no harm in trying out any legal book. If you don't like it, move on. Funds are safe.

    Below average software
    Weak futures

    Any good strategies to take advantage, but fly under the radar?

    I joined. Their software is well below average. At least I can login on the first try.

    Their software is GREAT for 1st time login!!! Maybe Fanduel could seek their help!!! But I don't like that they automatically assume a $50 wager each and every play. You have to go in and change. That's not a favorite feature.

    Is there a way to set your wager $ amount assumption? William Hill has that.

    MGM A+++


    They're my favorite app in Indiana and we have atleast 10 now. Good lines, oddsboosts and easy payouts. Reload match 50% all the time. Actually done better on Fan Duel, but MGM is my favorite.

    MGM has given me oddsboost for 3 teamers and I've hit 3 days in a row.

    Yesterday:

    Michigan ML -450
    Illinois ML -350
    Nevada +8.5 -120

    Supposed to be +188, but they paid $216 for $100. Draftkings, FD, Unibet, etc will give you oddsboosts on parlays, but they won't let you go higher then -200 on MLs

    MGM gave me Tom Brady 300+ yards 3 tds +460 vs Detroit. He had 3 tds and like 260 at half. Limit $50, but a free $230 never hurts. Love MGM

    Do they require that you roll that type prop over so many times?

    Only thing I don't like is it automatically set your bet to 50, and if you are in the bet slip screen you can easily mistakenly bet 50 without intending to.

    No...not at all. The deposit matches are 3x I think. Totally different then the offshore rollover scams

    They send you an email with every logon, unless you find a setting that changes that feature.... That's okay, but they don't seem to want you to stay on their website for too long. I haven't figured out HOW long exactly that is, but am thinking they are watching if you bet a line before it changes.

    Most of the books have quick logouts. Will Hill does that, Fanduel too. Draftkings not so much.

    Some of the others aren't bad in Virginia, but Draftkings is in a class all their own so far. I've read that Virginia may allow up to 10 or 12 sportsbooks online eventually.

    MGM gives me a bit of a "mickey mouse" feeling with : showing the time I last checked in... I don't see the reason for that.

    I guess if you don't enjoy playing off-market lines, there are better options, lol.

    It's such a battle to stay logged in to any book -- legal or not. But the diff. is that the legal books have absurdly bloated sites that take forever to load, so you end up dreading the process even more. I'm referring to desktop, not phone.

    Anyway, I do wish some books would figure out that they are losing action by logging people out all the time -- not to mention adding load to their servers.

    So true. It's almost like they want to slow people down on purpose. Probably not almost lol.

    I do all betting on ipads and phone. Am I missing out? Does it work better on desktop? Back in the day I never would have believed that I would bet that way. Except I'm only using 3-4 outs now. If it expands to 6+ useful outs, I may have to switch over. But I do like the touchscreen betting. I think it's quicker than the mouse.

    Is there an account setting for default bet size you can adjust yourself?


    I'd suspect that's a bit of a legally questionable move for a licensed sportsbook if not.

    Decent but high juice Euro lines
    Slow load times unlike Draftkings and Fandual and Barstool which are superior apps
    Decent Promos

    Creative site geared to suckers betting parlays, they do good volume in states they are in unlike 80% of usa books

    What they need to do is tell the player HOW LONG THEY ARE ALLOWED TO BE ON THE WEBSITE! Not a damn clock ticking in the middle top of the screen with how long you are logged on.
    I hate to give them up, because they do beat Wm Hill or DK lines (on the side I want) about 1/2 the time. I guess this aggravation comes with the territory

    I have an email to them over a week old that's not answered. I don't see a phone number to call them either.

    If the money is pending sounds like a banking issue. I think you'll be paid, but aggravation not needed.

    This is just ridiculous , no pay since Friday , still pending , no response to emails , no live chat , no phone number , the one number I found is a recording saying they don't take calls , should have taken my own advice which is offshore better in every way, I will never be back with them , NO excuses accepted!

    Sorry to hear this! Keep us up to date. I can't imagine that you won't be paid! Maybe some technical stuff about deposit and withdrawal...I have no idea. One reason that I don't take a bonus or freebies. They did give me a free $10 bet for betting live and I took it last night and won on the Knicks. Wish I hadn't done it. They're too big not to pay and too much to lose in your state by not paying. However, I worry about making you jump through hoops that you're not even aware of!
    Keep us up to date..
    Thanks
