Bets4All was first covered by SBR in October of 2004, when a report of slow-pay surfaced. SBR helped assist the player, and reported that he was paid in full after a three-month delay.
Downgrade from D to D-
On October 22nd, 2004, SBR lowered Bets4All's mark to D- after persistent reports of slow-pay. After initially addressing compalints with SBR, the Austrian based sportsbook began to withdraw itself from discussions. In May of 2005, SBR's Bill Dozer reported that Bets4All had settled the outstanding slow-pay complaints, albeit after most players had waited six months to be paid.
Later that month, Bets4All began to confiscate player's winnings and refused to explain why. Bets4All was swiftly downgraded to F after its refusal to justify the seizures. Twenty new delinquent payout complaints were reported by July of 2005. Bets4All had shifted full-throttle into being known as a deposit only sportsbook on the SBR Blacklist.
Bets4All attempts to bribe SBR for a rating increase
In August of 2005, Bets4All told SBR that they would settle the payout of the latest player to complain, on the condition that SBR gives the book a rating upgrade.
Over the course of the next few years, Bets4All players continued to report no-pay complaints. The next major Bets4All update came in February of 2010, when the sportsbook had allegedly been taken over by new management. However, Bets4All again hinted at a potential bribe to SBR, which suggested that prior management was still in control:
No Bets4All players have come forward reporting payment. The most recent Bets4All item to hit the SBR mailbox came from a player stating that he had not been paid his €500 withdrawal request from November 29th.
