    oddsmaker scam

    oddsmaker just had a huge blackjack freeroll , My friend finished 3rd and won $2900 but oddsmaker made up some sorry excuse that he didn't play the 75 hands needed to qualify.

    He played way more then 75 hands , the bottom line is oddsmaker is a fraud , stay away



    ps. I have a picture he took with his cell phone to prove he finished 3rd.

    Oddsmaker uses gimmick marketing to lure players in. Free role gimmick marketing books have always had the highest failure rate. Anyone that sends real money to a D book like this one should forget gambling and find a new hobby.

    I call it deceptive marketing. For instance, their $5 million free contest they are running. The one where they give away $1 million every 4 weeks and another $1 million at the end.

    You only win the millions if you are perfect. Nearly impossible to do, but good enough for their banners.

    If you knew who these people were, and what their background is, it would all make sense. Let's just say that misleading marketing is in their blood.

    FInally, they did recently stiff a big casino winner to the tune of 5 figures.

    whoever was 4th will be moved up etc. It isn't they aren't awarding the $$$ to no one. Crap book. Is there a hand history? I would request he asks for one.

    The sad history of my (short) poker life in Oddsmaker:

    I receive 50 free dollars after playing several hours I was able to make a 50.40 dollars profit, hard earn money (coming from other players). Then I receive another mail from this, apparently, nice guys, another promotion 20% bonus plus 25$ for the first deposit. So I deposit my 1000$, and get…nothing!!! Not the bonus, not the 25… but that’s nothing my 50 initial dollars where gone as well as my 50.40 profit!!!!!!!! Unbelievable. Money coming from other players!!! I place 4th in a 41 people tournament, tough players, we’re out of the money and now Oddsmaker take that money, stealing not only me but also the other players in the tournament.

    After calling servise support I got the 20% bonus and the 25$ free money, totally worthless, for every 100 bet you place, 96.6% come from your money and 3.4 from the “free money”.

    Now I’m just waiting for my 1000$ refund, they can keep their free money, even the 50$, but they stole 50.4 $ from the players… never forget that!

    Anyone able to withdrawal from oddsmaker?

    Jaymarie: Welcome to Customer Service. How may I help you today?
    chris: Do you have any idea when the wire withdrawal will be available? I have been checking every day for over a week.
    Jaymarie: we dont have feedback yet to when it will be available
    chris: Do you know how long it has typically been down in the past? Am I looking at a few years before I can make a withdrawl?
    Jaymarie: it has been months now
    Jaymarie: use the other option that is availabe
    Jaymarie: Would there be anything else that I can help you with?
    chris: The other options charge quite a bit when I am only planning to withdrawal $100. Is my money earning interest for your company.? I guess I don't understand the holdup. If you are hoping I will make more bets, I will not, the football season is over. Is there anyone else I can speak with that can help me better?
    Jaymarie: that is the standard processing fee
    chris: Is there anyone else I can speak with?
    Jaymarie: no sir
    chris: I smell a scam. I think I will have to make some negative posting for oddsmaker online. This is a little ridiculus. I will copy and paste our conversion and post it on all websites I can find. Do you have a last name or empoyee # Jaymarie?
    Jaymarie: no
    Jaymarie: its your decision
    chris: Thanks again for nothing.
    Jaymarie: Thank you for chatting. If you have other concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us again. Customer Support is available 24/7. Good Luck!

    Unfortunately many people have joined the SBR to complain about oddsmaker.com. They have a nice site but are not honest. Recently they knew their check processor closed an account but did nothing to warn withdrawling customers that the checks sent would bounce. The cashier said checks would be resent a couple weeks ago. BBD just posted a thread saying checks aren't being resent until now. I would not expect Oddsmaker.com to ever reopen their wire withdrawal. As for me I am about done with offshore gaming, to many issues. I have read negative reports about bookmaker.com which makes me wonder if SBR grades sites high who advertise here. Luckily I can drive a couple hours to place legal bets in Nevada.

    This forum helped me to find great books.........BOOKMAKER, WSEX, AND (testing THE GREEK Right now, but heard great things).

    They may be slow in payout at times due to processing issues, but you can sleep at night knowing you will get paid. In most cases I have been paid in a timely manner.

    odds maker ok by me

    I have been playing on odds maker for over 18 months now and before that its sister site, poker.com....I have never had a single problem cashing out, Ever. In fact I have a $1,700 withdrawl coming in a couple of days and withdrew $1,950 10 days ago. I have also cashed out with no problem on absolute and in the old days, party poker. I cash out at least 3 times a month and had any kind of problem at all. i suggest getting there debit card, you will receive funds in 3 days ( 10 days the first time). Its only $5.00 a withdrawl and you get paid in days instead of weeks.

    ps

    anybody who says these sites are "fixed" is only, you know, a loser. I have been successfully augmenting my income 30K a year (three years in a row).

    fuk oddsmaker

    I recieved there promotion bllsht in the mail for the FREE $100 to join. (of their money) I looked into this website & read the terms & conditions for this sht, & they want you play up to a MINIMUM OF $1500 before you can start claiming money to cash out. SO, these fools gives you a $100 to start with, but you cant cash out unless you have a minimum of $1500 YOU DO THE MATH!

    Look in the sewage pits, under slimy rocks, under the lid in old portajohns. That is where Oddsmaker.com can really be found.
