    Sports Books and monitoring IP's

    How close do you think sposts books look at this type of thing? Do you think they just log your IP when you first sign up and then compare them if they think something suspicious is going on? Or do you think they do it differently?

    Anyone had any experiences with IP related issues with sports books?

    Sports Interraction had a cow when I logged in from a hotel while I was on travel.

    I think they would keep all the IP addresses from where you access them and only study it when they smell shit

    GoldVictory did the same thing when an SBR poster did that as well just recently. Some books will not allow much leeway on the IP rule, even with a valid reason.

    I wonder how much headaches players with dynamic or changing IP's get. Must just be so long as the subnet or whatever stays the same.

    Matchbook closed the account of one of my relatives that opened it while at my place visiting.

    The explanation email they sent said they only allow one account per household and IP address.

    They saw the new account was opened from my IP addy.

    Everytime you click on a symbol or type "enter", the originating IP is recorded.

    In most cases, they never look at it. If there is an identity issue, or country of origin issue (especially for books that don't allow US players), they'll look closer.
