    Looking for safe sports books that take 1k-2k bets

    Hi everyone. I'm looking for safe solid sportsbook recommendations. Pay fast and no BS

    I've been limited and booted by GTBets and Betagame.

    Looking for a book that will take 1-2k in game and baseball sides and NBA sides without limiting and BS

    Some of the off shore books only do $500 a pop on in game at a time. Like Heritage and Bookmaker is weird with their in game limits.

    I do have the legal books in my state, but now BetMGM is limiting my plays. Still at DK and sometimes Pointsbet. But I need more offshore outs especially when I'm out of town etc

    Thanks for the help.

    Are you referring to live bets or pregame? Bookmaker has very high pregame limits for NBA, over $10k-20k in most instances.

    I can't think of any book known to not limit sharp live bettors.

    You haven't mentioned Betonline.ag so maybe check that out

    I sent them a deposit a while back and lost. My free play was a tie and they said it's a loss and I was pissed. So I haven't sent them anything since. They haven't offered much for a re up either. But they make sense. Thanks

    I am not sharp either lol. I wish I was

    They have unlimited 35% free play on deposit. They do 50% a few times a year and on the rare occasion they will give 100%. Maybe for Super Bowl? I forget when.

    I don't think any smart book will allow high limits on live betting. Heritage and bookmaker will have limits of about $500-1000 however you can place multiple bets within a minute in some cases.

    You can be pissed at BetOnline for losing your free play to a push if you want. But that's the rule at every sportsbook, so it seems a little silly to single out one just because you happened to get unlucky there. It could have happened anywhere. You're missing out on a great book.

    Like DTM said there are a lot of books that do that . I lost a few to that stupid rule. I try if it is a FP to do a bet that cannot end in a push if i can.

    Betagame doesn't do that and neither does Pointsbet. BOL customer service had an attitude and it turned me off. Maybe I'll try them soon. Thanks

    Can't move to Vegas right now, I want to, my GF and I have discussed it for our YouTube channel.

    Agreed but I didn't know at the time. Now I would make sure it's a win or a lose.

    If you don't trust Bovada, then you really should stop betting on sports because they're among the safest books out there.

    There hasn't been stories of players getting ripped off and slow paid by Bovada? I remember when they were Bodog. I was betting offshore in the last 90s too

    First, Bovada is huge, so you're always going to be able to find negative reports. Apple, Amazon...all of the companies which are known for great customer service have negative reviews. Using your rationale, there is not a single sportsbook on the planet which is safe to play at because they all have negative reports. You have to look deeper than that.

    Second, many of the complaints you hear about Bovada are people who either (a) don't know what they're talking about so believe they got screwed when in fact they didn't, or (b) people who got caught swindling Bovada (for example, because of their generous bonus offers) and are seeking retribution or trying to pressure Bovada into paying them anyways.

    Active gamblers know that Bovada does not rip people off.

    Bovada does not appear to give many people grief these days.

    Since 5Dimes stopped servicing USA they have become more popular around here and most posts seem to be along the lines of I did not realize they were this good.

    A bit more rec than BM or BOL but better live options for most sports and more options to parlay and exotics.

    PROCEED with caution at Bovada. I have had 2 "issues" within past 2 weeks there. 1x they FIXED it in my favor and the other time they basically told me to eff off. I play somewhere everyday but I do like the Poker there(not the anonymous players though). The interface is user friendly and I have NEVER had an issue with them paying me.

    I am Btc exclusive there and the weekly bonuses for being so are not the best in the world but since becoming Btc exclusive ALL of my payout requests have been processed and in my wallet within 5 hours.......sometimes in less than 1 hour.

    If you take any BONUSES be mindful of the Rollover requirements. They also have a sister site Ignition but that's casino/poker only. Ignition casino are looser than Bovada's but w/o the sports!!!

    GL to ya!!!

    So you say they made 2 mistakes. I honestly don't care about mistakes because everyone makes them. What matters is how they respond.

    One you say they corrected in your favor. And the other they graded in accordance with the score as reported by the official entities. it was suggested by an SBR mod that you identify in the video where the official score went wrong so that you coule better proceed with a dispute, but as far as I can tell, you haven't done that. I asked you to post the box score that they gave you so that I could try to help in this endeavor. But instead lets just say Bovada are cheats, right?

    Their lines are pretty shitty, but ACR/BlackChipPoker. NEVER had a problem with them. I deposited $3K and withdrew $7.5K+ without any problems. But I've only tried them with crypto, no wire-transfers etc.

    This is spot on about the safeness and fairness, but they won't be taking 1k-2k bets for very long at all, if you show any pulse.

    Betonline is probably a better book to fit those needs.

    Fair. I was merely responding to a previous post questioning Bovada's reputation.

    Thanks for the feedback

    I'm officially limited and done with BETMGM MI, they keep lowering my bets when I try to do them. IE - put in for 1000, they say the limit is 800. Try to put in 500, comes back with limit is 217.53. I talked to my rep and he said it's out of their hands. Funny is that I'm ice cold and been losing a lot. Especially with Pointsbet.

    Your limited on Pointsbet also? I deleted BetMGM Mi app as soon as I lost the initial bonuses. App and book is terrible.

    No Pointsbet loves me lol. Just saying I've sent many deposits there, but MGM thinks I'm sharp or something because I won there.

    Betmgm said I can still bet whatever at the counter, no thanks, not driving 25 mins to do that.
