Exclusivebet Accuses Player of Suspicious Betting
Exclusivebet Sportsbook has addressed the complaint filed by a player who claimed that his winning balance was confiscated after going on a hot streak.
The player claimed that after putting in for his first ever account withdrawal, his account was soon after restricted by the online sports betting website.
Sportsbook Review was told that the player's deposit was fine and cleared, but that they believe he was guilty of violating their terms and conditions pertaining to "suspicious betting".
However, Exclusivebet claimed that they came to this conclusion with the help of their software provider who manage other sportsbooks betting platforms. It was not immediately clear if Exclusivebet itself believed that the player was making the same bets as another account-holder, or if the limits were circumvented.
