    Picking A Good Bookie!!!

    Hey everyone. I read the great reviews on this site and I'm still having a little trouble picking a book. I'm a small time bettor, I put $20-30 dollars on a game. I want a site that if I win $100, isn't going to take 15% away with a $15 fee to withdraw (Pinnacle). I'm also looking for a site with good lines.

    I wish I could play at Pinnacle.

    Welcome to the SBR forum bud, I can't think of a book offhand which will offer free payouts for amounts under $500 (usually once a month- ie, 5dimes, however I'm sure BBD will be able to better assist you.

    betting 20-30 to request a 100.00 payout

    depends what you want to bet
    anyway, pinnacle has one free monthly withdrawal.
    unibet, stanjames and most of british bookies have free withdrawals as well

    Yes, Pinnacle has one monthly free withdrawal. Is true that 188bet,Betfair and Bet365 have free withdrawals? My friends told me to try these 3 who do you thinnk is the best among them...

    Betfair offer good lines but you will have to pay commission on your winnings,Bet365 are a waste of time,188bet i haven`t played at.
    Without a doubt the best book is pinnacle.

    I am not sure about betfair but 188bet and bet365 have free withdrawals. not sure about their minimum withdrawal though. check their website for more info
    bluesq has free instant moneybookers withdrawals, you could try them as well

    For me that I use euro books,Pinnacle is the only sportbooks who ask withdrawal fees.

    Bet365,Betfair,Unibet,StanJames,Expekt doon't ask for withdrawal fees. (I use Moneybookers and credit card only I don't know if there are fees for wire or other banking system)

    1. Pick one that pays..

    2. Pick one where the manager is available and over time proves he has CS skills..

    3. Pick one with software that is user friendly..

    4. Pick one SBR sanctions..

    5. Pick one in a country that you might visit one day, because the clerk you constantly speak to you believe is a hottie..

    6. Pick one where if you dump they give you a free play that has meaning..

    There are many good ones out there on the agent and post up side..Happy hunting..

    been on 188bet for a months now and all i know is deposit and withdrawal are free of charge. Aside from their internation bank transfer withdrawal option i think you need to pay for like $20 but i have other option why not to choose the free one ayt? hahaha

    although 188bet is not bad, its also nice to try others to check and compare. they say in other forums 12bet is almost same as 188 so maybe you may try that one also, i will do try that.

    Although the ownership seems solid, 12Bet is still a fairly new book
