    BoDog downgraded due to processing issues

    BoDog downgraded due to processing issues.

    Bodog (SBR rating B-) tells SBR that closing third party processors have forced them to reroute transfers through other payment services. This has caused players to wait even longer than the 40 business days listed on the [iSBRFORUM]Bodog[/iSBRFORUM] website. Players who deposited via person-to-person transfer methods have the ability to receive payment through the same method within three business days. Non-U.S. users using eWallets, Neteller or Moneybookers are offered payment within one business day. Bodog's downgrades from A to B- this summer reflect the book's inability to send checks or bank wires in a time frame consistent with top sportsbooks.

    While this is overdue, it still doesn't seem severe enough given the turmoil....... I would say C at best right now.

    SBR.........horrible call only rating B-!!!!

    What happens when a new user comes to the site and sees BoDog is a B- and they think "Wow they must be a great book!!!" 3 months later they have no money cause cant withdraw. Hello SBR.............how can a book who has little to no processor be a B-! Thats like saying "This car goes for $20,000, but since it has no engine, seats, or wheels we will lower it to $19,000".

    Iwin you phucking promote crdiwagering and you're hating on bodog? Bodog has never stiffed anybody pal they are having problems paying people because of the u.s govt being shit heads. If you deposit via ** to bodog you can get a payout in cash via ** in 3-5 days right now. Just their other methods arent going too well atm.

    If creditwagering sent Jessica Alba to your house every cashout to pay in person and give you a complimentary blowjob there would still be 500 guys on here telling every1 to stay away from them. Why would any1 stay away from them, they are a good book, with great lines and fast free payouts, what the fuk more can you ask for?

    Problem is that whilst they might be a C- to US Customers, they're probably an A- to Non-US Customers. If you're rating for everyone, you have to consider both.

    They don't do any type of book-to-book transfers that I know of Mr.Rake. However that is an option that they might want to explore if it's an option to them at this time, which I'm highly doubting.

    Bodog is still a safe book and very desireable for non-US customers. Unfortunately, their server problems have really hurt them badly. As a U.S. customer, I would avoid them till they settle their problems. This is probably a book to avoid this fall.

    this book is getting in line with sportsbook.com.
    That's laughable. Payouts by check are currently slow but when has Bodog stolen from customers like SB frequently does?

    sportsbook.com are outright thieves....Bodog just is having payout problems due to their processors. They are a 100% safe book. While the delay might be annoying, you will get paid (eventually). They are having some issues beside the processors, so it's best to proceed with some caution with them.

    It seems B- is ok for now. But, one wonders if they are at 40 days for bank drafts to US citizens in the slowest part of the year where will they be in 8 weeks in the busiest part of the year? I agree its a good book for those using non bank funding/payment methods and of course non US citizens.

    I would think a C rating I mean 40 day. Win today and I'll pay in a month and a half sounds good

    Should be a C rating at best. B- means "good." 40 days payment is not good.

    Good point, maybe there should be two rating systems.

    This is not a good sign. I have over $150.00 there. Maybe it's time for a withdrawal.

    Yes but there should be a distinction made between books that have a grade based on factors that are worldwide and books that have the same grade based on factors that only actually impact people in the U.S.

    Should SBR lower Pinnacle's rating just because Pinny isn't in the U.S.?

    I think players should take advantage of the forum threads which are linked to in Bodog's overview page and look into why they have been dropping.

    SBR has received about 40 emails from players who have been there for years and don't care about the time frame but want to know if Bodog is good for the money in the end. These aren't forum guys or active book shoppers, just players who see Bodog as their bookie and aren't looking for something new. A rating alone isn't enough to tell the story. Players have to flip the page.
