The Sportsbook.com (ag) player states that the reason his account was closed was because he had requested exclusion from Sports.com previously—a company that Sportsbook.com acquired—and that regardless of the fact that he was unaware of the acquisition and that his deposit was accepted, his winnings would not be honored. The player reportedly requested the exclusion from Sports.com on March 23rd, 2010. The player then sent an additional request to Sports.com on January 24th, 2011, demanding that his account be deleted.
The player has documented his issue in the SBRforum Sportsbook & Industry section, allowing other users to weigh in with their feedback on the account dispute. SBR is following up on this sportsbook dispute.
