When you deposit money on sportsbook.com they take the funds out of your acct immediately! however; when you want to withdrawl money from the site they make you wait over 2 months to get paid. they will send you a message stating your withdrawl has been processed after about 1-2 weeks. after approximately 2 weeks they will send you another email stating that your check has been processed. about 1 month later you will recieve another email stating that your withdrawl has been processed and you will recieve it in 10 days! they will then charge you $40.00 for this! the minimum cash out request is $500! i would recommend that anyone interested in playing poker online uses pokerstars or fulltilt where you will recieve your funds within 4-6 days!! there will be no charge from fulltilt or pokerstarsor this service and you may withdrawl as little as $50. if you decide to use sportsbook.com you have just decided to freeze up your funds for quite some time!! sportsbook.com is a joke of a poker site!!! they are fast to take your money but they dont have any desire to pay you until they feel good and ready! DO NOT MAKE ANY DEPOSITS ON SPORTSBOOK.COM!!!!!!!!!!

While it does take time for sportsbook.com to process checks I have always received them free of charge via FedEx once a month. The time it takes is hit or miss. Sometimes its within a week, sometimes it does take up to 6 weeks but you can thank George Bush for that. With the passing of the new laws it is hard for sportsbooks to find banks that will process their checks. They are constantly working to find new banks that will accomodate them. I don't think sportsbook.com intentionally holds payment, it just takes time to find banks to cut their checks. This will happen as an online gambling site becomes bigger and bigger as the watchdogs watch them more closely.

I did - it took about 13 weeks but they sent a check and it cleared. the book is way to big to re nig on payment. I do wish they would add some other payment options tho as 2 1/2 months is way to long.

Anyway I was also scammed by sportsbook.com, with a click of a mouse you can deposit money but to get a withraw from them you have to send picture ID, water billl that shows residence and after that you still might not get your money. To deposit money nothing needs to be done... HUGE SCAM, Stay away!!!

Fuck sports book. I won 600 dollars on their by playing poker and making bets, and when i tried to cash out they wouldn let me. So then I played my friend heads up and eventually lost all my money to him. We messed around thinking either way one of us would eventually get the money. The next day both our accounts were disabled, they claimed I was chip dumping, and I never saw a penny. What a fucking joke.

Didn't get screwed for money, but my when I tried to login the day after they claimed my details were wrong and disabled my account after only the second attempt (even banks give you 3-5 tries).

To restore it I have to provide copies of bank statements, passport/driving license, and the front and back of credit cards and then they'll tell me what's going on with the account.

I haven't even used the account yet, so I'll be damned if I'm doing all of that. That's more than a bank will ask for and it's more than enough steal my identity. And with all these stories I'm hearing now about people being screwed?

Fuck Sportsbook. Good riddance.

always poker cheat, every thing possible but winning, 10 times you loose with 2kings inyour hand, always 2cards possible flush, never make it, 2jacks loose to 2 sevens all in then, house put table 234 +5+6, and straight fixed at the end of a tournament. Note you have to bet wen you have 2 kings !! you'r tired of many hands of 27-28-38-47-29-.. then given good hand 2 kings to take your money.. its a fraud, i think the other player betting against you is the poker system itself..

Sportsbook.com is a scam. Like everyone said, they make every little excuse to pay out. And the longer that take, the more of your winnings you spend because you're frustrated and can't do nothing with the money. I won 2000 from sports bets and tried cashing out but they made excuses about needing to submit documents, I did 4 times but to no avail. My fourth time was today, so I should hear a response tomorrow if approved. From that 2000, i lost 1000 to their scammed online casino. I played black jack and literally there was a period where they won 50 times and I won less than 5. And when I decided to raised my bets seeing that I lost so many in a row, they would still beat me. I also noticed the screen glitches alot like someone is watching waiting to change the cards on the fly. Total rip off. It's just frustrating because their method of withdrawls are shameless. I hope I get approved tomorrow and withdraw my 1000, but I wouldn't be surprised if they made another excuse.

Their online games are rigged. I just wish there was a way to prove it and lock them up. I know we cant get our money back, but them going to jail would suffice.

Everyone stay away from sportsbook.com, unless you like playing for monopoly money.

F-Ck you sportsbook.com

played for a couple days and turned 200 into 1500. Try to withdraw and they gave me the whole 2 forms of ID crap. so i sent them the info and after 3 days of waiting and trying, i decided to play and then took the worst string of cards ive ever seen and ive been playing for 8 years. A player by the name of MadVillainy was responsible for alot of it. On a flop of 236....he bet 125 and i raised all of it which was around 750 and covered his 500 and he called immediately.......IMMEDIATELY with AQ.......Turn card is an Ace. I happen to notice that he was 3 tabling with about a grand on each table........And the funny part is .....his play was consistently horrible, calling for gutshots and overcards and hitting them. No doubt in my mind that something isnt right and that an investigation needs to be done..... just dont know how to do it.

Sportsbook has a 20% referral bonus wherein if someone refers you, then you and the person who referred you get a 20% bonus. I got referred, deposited $1000 and got a $200 bonus. I got lucky playing blackjack and won some money -- then Sportsbook.com disabled my account for bonus abuse!!!! I had outstanding sports bets and they said they were keeping the money even if I won the bet!!!

Sportsbook.com has great customer service....if you lose...but if you happen to win, watch out! They will rip you off!

i was playing a tourney and a player kept getting angry when she would lose. she started saying that she worked for sportsbook and that she'd show everyone. well i swear she got bullets at least twice within 5 hands. it was ridiculous. she went on a rampage with crazy cards. She may have been bluffing but her freaking cards made it seem otherwise. Plus I agree...I have asked players how they can make stupid calls or bets and they never reply.

I'm laughing my head off at you guys because when someone screws me, guess what? I screw them back 20x over. I won a huge tournament on Sportsbook.com , over 17K . I decided to cash out 5K immediately. Guess what? Same story as others, took forever to get it withdrawn then processed then some other bullshit. And I did get the checks, and they bounced after waiting 2 months for the check. So I decided to withdraw more....to no avail. I spent hours on the phone, I'd call them up all the time and tell them I want to shut down my account and then I told them the ONE THING they did not want to hear. I told them, Dont you worry people, Anthony is going to get his money back . Don't you worry, I'll be calling my credit card company. And guess what? In about a month, I ended up getting all my money. But guess what else I did, I called up my credit card company, had them go back 12 months to every single deposit I ever made with those guys and exaplained how it was fraudulent charges. The credit card company refunded me every penny I ever deposited, and not only did Sportsbook.com not get one penny from me, I got it from them. Fuck Sportsbook.com and fuck ever site that fucks with you. If they mess around, claim it as a fraudulent charge and you will get your money back from your credit card company.

And I thought it was just me. Need a new Wet Saw so I Put a 100 in and made some easy NFL picks and had it up to 500 in a couple of days. Wanted to cash out and couldn't. Said they needed ID, Utility Bill, all this stuff which I game them. Said they couldn't read it and needed me to re-send it. Tried at least 4 times without any luck. Finally just game up and made all kinds of dumb bets and lost it all in a day. This site sucks....

Wow!?! a lot of hate here.

It is quite simple. They require ID to ensure you are who you say you are. They require a utility bill to ensure that your current address is what you say it is. They require a photocopy of the credit card you deposited with to ensure that you are not using a stolen card.

You give them the three things above and you usually have your withdraw within 14 days max. I often get withdraws deposited directly into my bank account in less than a week.

Hope this helped.

Yes there are plenty of fish however you will constantly get sucked out on this site.
The software is not the best and the random number generator is a joke. They also wont tell you when you deposit money viz credit card you will be charged a foreign exchange fee. As bad as Full Tilt and Poker Stars are I will take them over Sportsbook every day .
I did not deposit much , I am done to my last $ 50 which I will just bet away and chalk this one up to a real bad decision .

Been a member since 2002, and never had a problem until they started requiring all the extra documents. Once they got the documents it took about 3 weeks for that check. Ever since then it has been back to about 1 week for the check with no problems. I don't play poker, so I don't know about that site. I only use this sportbook and feel 100% comfortable.
The company is publicly traded (London exchange I think), perhaps there is some recourse for those that feel cheated there.

I'd have to agree with the rhetoric that Sportsbook.com is a scam. I was out of funds, and threatened the live chat people that I was going to leave to a different site unless they gave me a bonus or something, so the agent finally said that I could have a $33 coupon for a tourney. The first thing i said when I bought into this tourney was "Ok, I know I am just wasting my time here, because I'm playing with a tournament coupon issued to me by sportsbook, i know they are just going to make me lose". This i typed in capital letters so that everyone on the table could see. I proceeded to have the MOST amazing luck, and ended up getting 3rd place, winning $600.

I was pretty happy with this, and decided to keep playing, which was the biggest mistake I could have ever made. I played 100max Omaha, and 6, no exagerration 6 times I had my money allin on the flop or turn with the nuts, and my opponent down to a 3 outer, and EVERY SINGLE TIME they hit. That $600 disapeered in a matter of 1 hour. I am a very good poker player, and typically do very well, but these situations that I was put in, EVERYBODY ON THE PLANET would have pushed allin as well....for example, I had KKQJ and the board came K22. I bet and was raised on the flop, and i three bet, and the other player pushed allin with A2, turn card was A, river was A. Another example, i had 8910J, the flop came 678, I bet and was raised, I reraised and again the other guy pushed allin with 8910Q, turn was a blank, and river was a J.

I'm NOT a conspiracy theorist, and completely understand that there is variance in a game like Omaha...but never in my life have I suffered such ridculous beats time after time after time. SPORTSBOOK.COM IS A SCAM, NEVER EVER PLAY THERE OR ON ANY OF THE MERGE NETWORK SITES.

Sportsbook.com is a joke. I have NEVER had a problem with them until the last month. They have sent me 2 checks that I deposited but were then returned from the bank. It's really shitty when you have $650 one day, and the next day it's gone....especially when rent is due. I spoke with someone tonight on the phone and they told me to have the money wired and I am hoping that will finally solve the issue. TWICE in one month is ridiculous.

I really hope the 3rd time is the charm. They told me 5-7 days once they process my email which apparently takes 48 hours. Bullshit.

I was playing $1,000-$2,000 hand and getting dealt 20's and 21's and i noticed that every time the support came to my table to observe the dealer would mysteriously pull the impossible 21's . 3 hands in a row i was dealt 20 and dealer always hit 21. i think it could be some sort of predetermined outcome casino where they play a video of a losing hand that you bet on.

Sportsbook is a scam, need I say more. Go to pocketfives.com and 2+2 once that forum comes back up. There is a heated discussion going about the Merge poker network. It turns out Merge has a bunch of players that play for free, they basically give these people free tournament tickets and they get to keep 40% of the winnings and Merge gets to keep 60% of the winnings IN THEIR OWN TOURNEY. Basically Merge created a bunch of superuser accounts and handed them out to some monkeys and promised them a 40% cut (gee, wonder if they'll ever see any of it). In case you weren't convinced by playing there, ITS FIXED!!!! Just check out the poker forums.

Ask when you purchase the teckit the expiration will be printed on the back of the teckit. You can always mail the teckit, they will send you a check(registered mail is a very good idea! and keep a photo copy of the teckit, just in case)I'm in LV several times per year so it has never been a problem, and I usually only bet on games that I'm actually watching. But, one time(years ago) I did ask about a futures bet(Super Bowl) and was told I had one year from the date of the event to cash the teckit(this may well have changed). Because I just ask(the experts) and was told it could vary from 60/90/120/etc days. Hope that's not as confusing to you as it is to me ~Jack~.

I never have made a deposit on this cheating site and encourage everyone to avoid this site at all costs, DONT EVEN BOTHER PLAYING AT THIS BOGUS CHEATING SITE!!!

Its a shame ive spent 19,000 with them over 3 years, never cashed out and they have barely ever given bonus that one should get with that kind of play and for that im done with them.Im sure if i had tried to cash out i woulda got screwed there too. STAY AWAY by scratch tickets at least you get a free ticket occationally GEEEEZ. Its funny 19,000 and they tell you there hasnt been enough activity WOW REALLY!

I had a problem as well. I was at 2 cash tables then one froze and the other worked, I shut down the software then re entered and it worked. A little later I was at a 6 player sit n go super turbo and was chip leader at the same time I was playing a cash game. The sit n go then froze but the cash table continued to work. I tried shutting down the software and re entering but it wouldn't let me, it said software is already running. Then I re started my computer when I got back in I had been blinded out.

I then went on the website to do a live chat and then my entire computer just said it encountered a problem and shut down. I re started 3 times and my internet was down to my computer but not to any of my other devices, just my laptop which is 5 days old by the way.

Hello All, So I have been playing on Sportsbook since I cannot play on PokerStars or Fulltilt. I have recently found Sportsbook and have been playing on it since Sept of 2012. The with-drawl method is 50 bucks at the most and no more than 2500 at a time.

I have been speaking with an agent and that says: .......: The express Courier is juts the way that we send them is nothing special or faster.

We got one free with-drawl a month and anything after that is $40.00 which is a house rule they say..

Here is what they say about the payment methond

(Our current timeframe for ‘checks/bank wire’ withdrawals is 6-8 weeks. Since the US government placed a lot of restrictions to the gaming industry last year, it’s not as easy as it was for us to send money as fast as we used to without compromising our customers, payment processors and financial institutions. I can assure you that we always do our best effort to process withdrawals as fast as possible. You will also receive a notification to your account as soon as your withdrawal request has been processed.)

We all have to admit after the bust of the two best websites things have gotten difficult..

About the"bots" in point that could be true and I have heard stories that players will logg of his or her account and let a pro log on from a different location and this is also why we cannot transfer funds anymore, PS and fulltilt really made things bad for us.

We all have the choice to have a bot created so its a strange thing and scary thing to think about..

Please feel free to email me

sportsbook is definitely a scam site. Very easy to get money in but almost impossible to get out. You would be better off setting your money on fire than depositing with these crooks.

Bought in for $200. Played NFL games and poker and my account was up to $701.

Tried to log onto software and was having login issues. After an hour with support deleting and resinstalling several times they said that they found a past account from 2006 that had chargebacks of $600 and until I send them the money with a cashiers check etc they won't release my account hold or my $700. I asked if they really felt that the chargebacks were mine why they didn't subtract the money from my current winnings. They guy said the current winnings don't count becuase of the past chargebacks. So basically they were never going to unlock my account. They were going to try and get $600 cash from me and also keep my $700 all to keep myelf from being blacklisted per the guy.

When I said I could just chargeback the current $200 he said he would reverse that to me tomorrow to prevent the chargeback but I would be blacklisted along with any friends or family they can link to me which they will also block and try to recover the funds from their accounts.

When I asked why they though the previous account was mine the guys said that they examined the playing style of they guy from 2006 and he bet similar in craps to how I bet a couple of times on this account. Low dollar $5.00 betts etc. What B.S.

When he reminded me of the chargebacks from 2006 I remembered issuing those chargebacks from my bank when I realized someone had stolen my online identity and user name and created an account and stole $600 for this site with 3 $200 deposits along with lots of other things they bought from other sites. I got all that money back from the credit card. I just started online gamling this year on football games. I was suggeste to us sportsbook or bovada or one other one. I didn't even think back to 2006 and the fraud committed against me. It wasn't me and now I feel take advante of twice.

At least last time I got the $600 back and this time I will at least get my deposit back. But I'm out all my winnings which total $501 in 3/4th of a football season.

Wish I new the correct way to sue or bring charges against them for fraudulent practices.

What I do know about working for an online billing service in the past. Chargebacks are the killer. The more chargebacks that you can issue against them the better. If they exceed a certain % they lose their merchant account with Visa/Mastercard. I will do my part to increase this % against them after this today.

ak5 flop i have 2 kings guy snap call with 68 off runner straight. same player did it twice to me. have had same experience i triple up flop set and loose to runner runner when the call makes no sense this is me goin all in on flop. Just not sure how you call with 8 high hoping for runner runner straight no backdoor flush or pair. Friends i play with at site same experience. Group of guys on that site they love 86 off runner runner draw to straight call for all the money. Between us over 50 times and never held up lol So yes they cheat. Sent them hand history for over 10,000 hands they hand no response. Crazy thing was still finished up money.
They changes names and open new accounts each day i suspect.

Hell everyone,

Please DO NOT USE Sportsbook. It is a SCAM!
I am a math Ph.D. and I do understand something about randomness. I played several hands at Poker. Now I noticed that 25% of the times I get the exact same pair of cards in two consecutive hands! I played about 1000 hands. How do you think that is possible? I mean I understand once in a while, but so often?? No way.
Please be aware and do not use this site. I asked for a refund and I will contact my credit card company if I do not get it.
If you decide to keep playing, please take a note of how often you get the same pair in two consecutive hands!
Good luck
M.

P.S. All my Hand History was suddenly cancelled from their website after I spoke to an agent about my complaint and observation.

Be careful and be smart. Do not give a cent to this site.
