    BetNow Down Since This Afternoon/Early Evening

    Not been the greatest of Weekends.

    Started off getting limited by 3 Books For World Cup Props (Limited on Props Only)

    BetNow is down after what seems to be daily news now of hacks or books having payout issues, these are trying times my friends! Lots to be thankful for still


    On the bright side and maybe because I'm probably a little Net (negative) with them, BetUS paid out and they paid out fast. Uploaded Auth Docs and they approved quickly!

    on twitter they claim it's technical problems

    bad timing... but on the plus side i had a withdrawal on friday, so it doesn't seem like a financial problem

    as titan said though, we're getting into the danger zone time of year, a lot of books go under in december... keep those balances manageable, can always redeposit

    Can you name any that have? December is still a very busy time of year for books. Historically speaking books struggle in the summer.

    i think topbet stopped paying people december 2017

    i'm sure there are other examples, seems like most of my slow pay/no pay problems over the years have been near the end of football season, when books are paying out a lot more money than in the summer

    i think at this point i would keep balances on the lower side at betnow

    they've been paying quickly, and i've always been treated great, but the 100% cash deposit bonus until the end of the year gives me a bit of nerves

    This makes me s tad nervous too. It is a 15x rollover though which is quite high for them.

    me too, all has been running smoothly... the cash bonus is for a smaller max than i thought (200?) so not much of a deal

    with their fantastic lines and bonuses, it is still a book i wouldn't feel super comfy with a huge balance in... not sure how they even make money lol
