Betsson sportsbook dispute hits SBR mailbox

A Betsson Sportsbook (SBR rating C+) player files a sportsbook complaint. The user deposited $20, attempted one wager and realised the maximum stake possible was just $1. The player confirmed via Betsson's live chat support that the limit was correct and claims that her country of residence was cited as the reason behind it.

Betsson allegedly told the player that the deposit must be turned over once or a 5% payment fee would be enforced: a request that would be unreasonable if the player's starting deposit were higher.
