LuckyHog (SBR rating F), formerly a Futurebet label, tells SBR posters about being stiffed by Futurebet and states it will, and has, covered player balances. Players who are owed by LuckyHog or have been recently paid by the book are asked to contact SBR. LuckyHog is currently a poker room only while the website states that the sportsbook is "coming soon." Futurebet still operates some of its larger brands such as Oddsmaker (SBR rating D-) and BetOnUSA (SBR rating D-). The books partnered with the Futurebet network after it refused to pay its smaller licensees. LuckyDog has been upgraded to D. The site left the Fututebet network without pending complaints. has no intention to “duck network failure.” is standing behind its Players.

We at entered the online poker world in March 2007 with good intentions with a foundation built on player integrity and fair play. Unfortunately, due to circumstances out of our control our reputation as an online poker company has been tarnished due to the actions of dishonest and poorly managed networks.

Everyone in the online poker industry is aware of the circumstances around networks such as Future Bet and DGS. Look no further than the former licensees to see that both networks left their client licensees – and players - in precarious situations.

Some companies have folded, re-opened or have opened new companies under different names, trying to carry on business-as-usual, promoting their new brands to unsuspecting players. Many clients, we know, are unwittingly signing up with the same operators who have simply rebranded.

We at are standing behind our brand and our clients. We recognize that this is a situation that has hurt them, due to no fault of there own.

To set the record straight; Future Bet and DGS were responsible for taking player deposits, collecting rake, not paying/processing player withdrawals and not paying out the licensee there monies owed. Not only were licencees, such as, not paid out, but the networks took the players’ money as well., and others, were left holding the bag and with a bad reputation. Most licensees have closed their doors or tried to hide from former clients under new brand names.

WE,’s owners and management, vow not to slam the door in our clients’ faces. Instead, we have made it clear that we will go into our own pockets to pay out the money that our clients are owed.

To this end:

On January 16, 2008, launched on the MERGE GAMING NETWORK, the same network as Carbon Poker. We trust that this is a safe and secure platform for our valued players to be on. With thousands of player’s online everyday and countless tournaments, ring games and styles of poker, we are sure that our old and new players will be more than satisfied.
