Scam alert: 21KBet Sportsbook

Share with:

21KBet (SBR rating D-) is misleading players by claiming to be licensed by the Lotteries and Gaming Authority (LGA) of Malta. No such license exists. The LGA released a statement indicating that 21KBet has no connection whatsoever to the LGA. The 21KBet website claims to be headquartered in Malta. SBR has received forwarded emails from a 21KBet manager that went so far as to produce a bogus LGA registration number. The emails targeted players for deposits.


Nineteen players have reported not being paid. Fourteen of the players deposited to 21KBet via Moneybookers. These players' balances total €20,192. SBR reported on 4 January 2012 that 21KBet blamed Moneybookers for the eWallet delays, stating that it had no access to deposited funds. Moneybookers released a statement to SBR denying that 21KBet was an authorized merchant. 21KBet used a personal Moneybookers account to receive player deposits. Six players deposited with the sportsbook by bank transfer. One player confirmed being paid €670. 21KBet refused to pay the others, claiming player fraud.

21KBet continues to provide generic updates to SBR regarding the deceptive marketing and the delinquent payment requests. 21KBet is on the scam sportsbook blacklist at D-.

21KBet players with feedback or complaints are asked to submit a sportsbook complaint form, or dial 1-830-255-4677 during normal business hours to speak with a Sportsbook Review dispute analyst.
