SBR first broke news of the BetRevolution case on April 1 2013.
After SBR contacted BetRevolution to discuss these cases, the sportsbook provided an attachment containing screenshots of the users Facebook profiles. The profiles showed the full names of two of the players who filed SBR complaints and appeared only to highlight that they were tagged as friends.
BetRevolution accepted wagers from the players for several months. The sportsbook argued that the players had many common wagers and that this constituted a conspiracy rather than simply friends sharing picks.
When a sportsbook accepts wagers it has no intention of paying, that is referred to as a freeroll within the iGaming industry: A common tactic used by many scam sportsbooks. The players could have lost their combined $26,908, but being paid was not a possibility.
BetRevolution players with feedback are encouraged to write to SBR.
