Sportsbook Review news host Natalie provides an update on some of the recent items covered in the SBR newswire. Today's video includes a mention of the recent upgrade received by Guts.com to the sportsbook rating of C+. Guts.com was initiated with a rating of C last September and has no meaningful player disputes recorded to date; the sportsbook domain was originally acquired two years prior before then operating as an online casino. The sportsbook and casino is owned by Guts Gaming Limited, which is licensed by the Lotteries & Gaming Authority of Malta. Player feedback on the Guts brand is encouraged.

Natalie then informs viewers that the total of €17,000 in contested winnings by BetAtHome players is a case that remains outstanding. BetAtHome has not yet provided an update to Sportsbook Review on the status of these player complaints.

Finally, sports bettors and handicappers are informed of the creation of the UFC 184 Prop Betting directory, and the potential perks associated with using the Rousey vs. Zingano betting props list.

LSbet Sportsbook Bonus Complaint: Player Limited to €4

02.25.2015

An LSbet Sportsbook (SBR rating C) player has filed a sportsbook bonus dispute with SBR. The player has reported that he has been limited to a maximum of €4 per bet, despite having €2,220 in remaining rollover (play-through). He has stated that this wagering limit was slapped on him just four bets into his deposit. In situations such as these, the industry standard is for online betting sites who wish not to accept a player's action to pay all winnings and prorate the bonus amount based on the percentage of the bonus that has been rolled over to date. SBR has followed up with LSbet Sportsbook to see if they are willing to either do this, or restore the player's wagering limits to an amount more reasonable.
