Update to previous report: BetMayor registration disabled

07.08.2015

BetMayor Sportsbook (SBR rating F) is not accepting player registrations at the moment, though the betting site is online. The phone number displayed on the BetMayor website (1-877-254-1214) rings continuously before an auto-Spanish voicemail which suggests players try to call back later. Sportsbook Review is attempting to reach the General Manager of BetMayor for an update. A player has written Sportsbook Review stating the following:

BetMayor player: "I have a $5000 + balance and the site says "wagering has been disabled". All phone lines are down as well! What is going on?"

BetMayor was reportedly undergoing an acquisition that would see the $51,000 casino winner be paid who had his balance erased due to allegedly being a professional player. Players have been given no update. BetMayor remains on the sportsbook blacklist.

Six online sportsbooks release NHL Stanley Cup Betting Futures

07.08.2015

Six online sportsbooks have released NHL Stanley Cup betting futures for the 2015-16 season. Comparing the payout for the top team, a $100 wager returns as little as $550 and as much as $800. The odds displayed on the page update in real-time; when cells flash red, that indicates an immediate change recorded in the last 15 seconds. An orange cell indicates a change in the last 45 seconds, with yellow noting a change in the last one minute.

The betting sites listed in the NHL futures directory only consist of sportsbooks in minimum good standing with players, all of which do not have outstanding complaints from sports bettors. Sportsbook Review will update the newswire feed as significant updates to the page are made and new proposition wagers are added for the upcoming hockey season.
