US problems with sportsbook.com

Sportsbook is having problems giving payouts to the us. I’ve talked to few other guys that have been waiting a couple of week for their money. Is anyone here having the same problem? Can somebody recommend a new bookie.

Havn't taken a payout in a while but got some bones in there. I actually just found out they have a rating of a "d". Someone had just posted a site where you can check all of the top books out there. Bet Jamaica, The Greek, Bodog, 5Dimes, and a few others were rated a+...

That's it, bookmaker(formerly betcris) was another A+ site. I'm going to call first thing tomorrow to find out if they do transfers. I'd hate to wait for the cash I got in there. Do you know if they transfer funds?

Re: US problems with sportsbook.com

I have $300 in sportsbook just mostly for poker fun. Not good to hear this. My other book is BetUS w/3k in it. Not excited what I heard about w/d from them either!
I was just in a poker tourny for trip to thye KY Derby at SPortsbook! Finished 5th and I would be pissed to win and they say you are in the US and we can't give you the trip. 5th sounds good huh? Well there were only 30 people that won Satellites. SO 5th outta 30. That went through my head the whole time... Its hard to deposit funds from the US & was nervous about claiming the trip if I won? I figure it would be alot harder to give airline tix, hotel, etc. to a US player. Harder than sending a check? The guy that won was from Dayton too! Wish I could get in touch w/him and see how it went. Wish everyone luck if you have any amount in there!

IC, what ever happened w/BetUS and that payout situation? That one has me nervous!

Couple ideas...
Will either of these books let you transfer funds to other members out of the US?? Maybe you have a buddy in Canada you can trust? He can get $$'s from you and then withdraw? Just a thought??

Re: US problems with sportsbook.com

I have an account with The Greek and they are fine except that their lines seem to run against the better on both sides more than many of the other books. I had a bias against Bodog for a while but after looking it over, I think I'll open an account there. They all speak English there too.

Re: US problems with sportsbook.com

You get the best lines at Matchbook bar none and their customer service is good. You won't be able to make many crazy bets, parlays, etc. there but for straight lines, you always get a better shake. I have $2000 lost between my bank and their bank and I don't know who's fault it is but, so far, nobody seems to know where it is. I put a tracer on it late last week so, hopefully, it will show up soon.

Re: US problems with sportsbook.com

i've been with sportsbook.com for years and haven't had any problems. i just spoke with one of their reps on the phone and he said the process is now taking longer (10-15 days). I just made a withdrawl of a grand to make sure they're not bull****ing.

Player Comments: I have been a member for about a year. I have deposit appx 10K to them using strictly MoneyGram. They are very slow at placing funds in your account, and have apologized xountless times that there was an error. They switch their MoneyGram account information without warning on a monthly basis and treat you like crap for not knowing. 11% reload bonuses are a joke. It is like pulling teeth to actually get them to give it to you. Excuses such as, we no longer offer bonuses on cash deposits are very lame to say the least. I have cancelled my account there and am going to give BetChris a shot. I give them a C, but average is not a good place to trust your money.

Player Comments: How this sportsbook qualifies for an "A" rating is a mystery to me. I actually gave up on them and closed my account some time ago because they sucked so bad but recently I decided to give them another shot and guess what... they still suck. Their customer service agents have to be the most insipid human beings on this planet. I could go into detail but whats the point? They DON'T care and refuse to CHANGE! Their answer to every question seems to be call back later... UTTER NONSENSE!!!

Player Comments: I've dealt with many sportsbook through the years.......VIP has the absolute worst customer service of any I've dealt with. Everything is always something or someone elses fault. They are now slow paying me. I have deposited (lost) in excess of 22k with this book. Now, I go to withdrawel $1800.00 and have it wired to my bank account, that was on Monday. They told me it would take 2-3 business days. ON Friday they blame it on their "processor" of payments, saying they are overloaded due to netteller, but promise me up and down it will be in my bank on Saturday. I call my bank and they tell me they can accept wires on Saturdays and will put it in if received. It has not shown up. Now they tell me it can't go through until Monday, which I have little faith it will ever arrive. How can SBR give these guys such a high rating? Does anyone on SBR staff actually have an account with them and see how their casino is rigged (but that's no different than any other on-line casino) or how terribley unprofessional their customer service is.........you can't ever reach anybody by phone, or how their payout department doesn't work on weekends and they do as little as possible to resolve issues, YET THEY GET AN A + RATING FROM SBR??????? Under no circumstances should anyone send money to these guys.

Player Comments: I started my gaming online at Bodog.com, its not a bad book, but I was looking for more, friend of mine would play at Betonsports at the time and I saw his lines came out alot earlier, soo I join that one to.(Till they had to fold of course). But I had recently join Bestlinesports, I go to make my western union deposits of $50.00, so I go on to play many games and wind up in the vicinty of $4000.00, I get 2 payouts tallying 3500.00, payouts were same day I was greatly appreciated, excellent customer service, I never had any problems whatsoever, why there only a B- baffles the hell out of me. I would recommend this site to anyone if you want to better your chances considerable as far as payouts go, plus their lines come out early. You even get george over there that will actually talk sports with ya, he loves it I've spent a good 20 minutes on the phone with him discussing picks. Helped out alot.

Player Comments: I cant believe I read negative comments on this book! They are the best I've ever dealt with, from the customer service to the payouts. I've been playing with them for 3 years and never have had any problems. I always get paid very fast without any hassles. They put up the rules and they follow them strictly! Whats the problem with these negative comments? Cant they understand their rules? Of course you have to roll money over 4x, their not gonna give away free money if you dont risk it! If you dont like this book then you better just give it up, cause it dont get better!
