Wagerweb player claims to have six $3,000 checks pending

09.27.2014

A Wagerweb Sportsbook (SBR rating C+) player has claimed that he has six pending $3,000 check requests dating back to May 29. The first request is 130 days old. Wagerweb's online cashier lists up to 6 weeks for checks, while players have been told by customer service that check withdrawals can take up to a total time-frame of 60 business days.  Sportsbook Review reported that three users have complained on Wagerweb's lengthy waiting time for check payouts. The alternative these users have comes with significantly higher fees. In one case, reported by SBR last week, a user that waited over 100 days had his check withdrawal cancelled in favor of multiple Person to Person transactions. SBR is following up with Wagerweb management on this latest payment complaint, and encourages users with feedback to share to write to mail@sportsbookreview.com or submit a sportsbook complaint. SBR initially reported on September 22nd that Wagerweb was quoting up to three calendar months for player withdrawals.
