OUTS DWINDLE.

-Sportsbook.com family gets removed from the list. After nearly 2 months of delays they have recently paid out players, but the hassle and uncertainty are too much to remain on the safe outs list. A company known for its past poor customer service has now taken a turn for the worst, and players funds are at risk.

-Cris, this past week suffered a blow from the feds. Their network of onshore agents were raided which will result in scores and possibly hundreds of arrests, including seizure of +$100million in assets.

Although Cris's offshore operation remains in tact, consider this yet another warning, I'm sure bettors see how Cris is rated as a top book on internet sites who receive advertising money from them, and the many bettors who use them, but bettors should be aware, the risk using them is higher than other books on the safe list.

OTHER NEWS:

-Olympic (thegreek) continues to make payments like clockwork as does WSEX and Tradesports.

-Sia has been making payments to bettors with few complaints, if they keep it up thru the summer they will be back on the list for the NFL (whew!!).

-VIP has continued to have serious payout issues, avoid this book.

-Cascade just used up their 9th life, if you have money there you have the empathy of all of us who have been burned.

-Bodog has been having long delays paying customers, but noone complaining of being stiffed yet. If Bodog can improve their payout performance they will be on the safe list for the fall.

WARNING:

If bettors have not removed all their funds from midlevel books yet, they should do so right away, especially the books who are advertising on the internet sites, those books will not be getting the easy square money anymore to keep them afloat. There is no doubt these books are operating on customer funds, not profits.

Hey Mo,

Thanks for your update.

I still have little confidence. Can't keep much money in any of these offshores in my opinion.

Bowman's would have never sold their book to Bodog and Pinnacle would have never shut off their US clientelle if they thought they could continue with impunity.

Very concerned about the future of the remaining offshores and the internet boards who cater to the same client base. Advertising revenues have also taken a severe hit.

We're slowly being smothered.

Hope all is well with you.

That's good to hear.  Wanted to join them, but being a US citizen, was shut off by them when I tried in the spring.

Although Sportbookreview doesn't say no US customers.  Will have to look into this further.

My favorite by far is sportsbook.com

Been with them 6+ years and have never had a problem. Easy to fund your acct., fast reliable payouts, decent bonuses and nice lines.

The fact they are an advertiser on your web site...that wouldn't cloud your judgment would it?

Your list of books is nice and there must be few more about sports related,
books like betsfreebets is also very good, you must add this.
