Stopped payment on my check, and would'nt refund money. Told me to send copies of checks and bank fees, once I did they said they could'nt do anything for me. Sportsbook.com is the worst site not to mention horrible customer service. If anyone has any ideas of how to get these ###s I'm down.

    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

    It IS a scam. They only owe me $200 from the Super Bowl. It is now 8 months later and I still can't make a withdrawl. I sent them the documents requested but my account still shows that one of my documents was too hard to read? I've sent other files to avail.

    THEY DO NOT PAY OUT. DON'T USE!

    I too think Sportsbook's poker is rigged. Too many bad hands winning when you're all in. How do we know it's not one of their employees sitting at the table? I won a few thousand last year and early this. Got the money fairly quick. But since then can't win hardly anything. When you ask them about it all they can do is point to the "cashout curse" (sames as Pokerstars) and give you a hundred reasons why you changed your play even though you didn't. I think I've given them fair chance. Only playing freerolls from here on out.

    I'm with the other guy. If we could find some way to prove this I'd love to help take them down.

    sportsbook.com is a TOTAL SCAM AND RIP OFF. My boyfriend won around $2000 and tried to make a withdrawl and was asked for SS#, Drivers Lis # AND Utility Bills... WTF? You're an offshore gambling racket and we're going to send that kind of documentation to you guys? Are you insane?

    Sure is interesting how they make it REAL easy to take your money... but then when it comes time to cash out, they make it as complicated as possible, and clearly based on these other comments, they make it impossible to get your money.

    FUC U Sportsbook.com - Karma is a ### and she'll be seeing you very soon, you slimy ### best watch your ###.

    Sportsbook did the same thing to me. I turned $300 into $3000 over the span of 3 weeks betting on Sports. I faxed them the necessary documentation (driver's licesne, utility bill) for making a withdrawal. Literally, the next morning my account was frozen. I couldn't even log into my account to view it, nor could I wager or withdraw any money. They came up with some ### excuse that they linked my account to fraudulent activity- when I have never been involved in such whatsoever. I have spent hours on the phone with management but to no avail. It looks like they have locked my money up and I will never see it.

    I say we all get together and file a complaint to all our state's attorney gerenal's offices. Another thing you can do is go to www.SBRforum.com and go to Sportsbook Reviews- there you can file a complaint with SBR about Sportsbook. SBR has employees who will contact the book for you and attempt to resolve your issue. It's worth a shot.

    In addition to all this. Sportsbook I believe is in violation of a new RICO Act- a law recently passed that affects offshore online gambling agencies. I say we all band together and try to hire a lawyer who will take this case on. It could somewhat of a class-action lawsuit- so we arent individually on the hook for expensive lawyer fees. But just from the handful of people on here, there are tens of thousands of dollars being scammed. We shouldn't let that go without a fight!

    Sportsbook poker is definitely rigged. If you play very loose and go all in frequently you will get an extraordinary amount of good hands. Likewise if you fold waiting for a good hand your hands will get progressively worse. Don't believe me just try it. Also, if two people go all in, the person that has the most chips wins 80% of the time. For example, I won a tournament by playing like a total donkey. I went all in early and got great cards (cards were about 500% better than I have ever seen playing live at the casino). My chip count grew like crazy, and I knew if someone with a small chip count went all in, would lose if I called. I cant tell you how many KK - AK, I beat with off suite 27, 93 etc. I'm no pro, but I do just fine playing in the casino and have played enough to know what is probable and what is statistically as probable as a lightning strike. For example I played 20 tournaments over 5 days on Sportsbook and played them tight and aggressive. A style that makes me money at live games. In every single game I would have runs of 15 - 20 hands without a face card. Then when a face card came it would have a very low kicker. The next week I played very loose and would almost always go no more than three hands without very good hand. At one point I got 7 hands in a row with an ace and high kicker. I mean what are the freaking odds of that? In one game I got two hands in a row of QQ and 10 minutes later got KK twice in a row. Again, you don't have to take my word for it. Try the site yourself. Play loose for a while then play tight. I have no doubt you will agree and you'll save yourself from wasting a lot of money.

    SO FAR I DUNNO, I HAVE $75 THAT I WANT SENT IN A CHECK TO MY HOUSE. THEY TOLD ME TO SCAN A DOCUMENT INSTEAD OF COPY AND FAX ONE, WEIRD. THEN I AM WAITING TO SEE, THEY COMPLAINED 3 TIMES THAT THE COPY WAS TOO DARK, EXCEPT THE KINKO'S LADY DID THE ENTIRE THING, SO THERE WAS NO WAY THAT IT WAS DARK OR SCREWED UP 3 TIMES
    IF MY CHECK DOESN'T ARRIVE I WILL OPEN UP TOTAL WHOOP [censor] ON THEM SINCE I KNOW SOME FBI GUYS WHO HATE SCAMMERS THAT ARE THAT BIG. I USED NEWBODOG.COM FOR YRS AND THEY ALWAYS PAY OUT AND DO EVERYTHING OK OVERALL, 4 CHECKS MAILED WITHIN 2 WEEKS OR MUCH LESS TO MY HOME.
    I 'M WORRIED THESE GUYS ARE GOING TO SCREW ME OVER

    Sportsbook Is Super rigged i won like 2k in sportsbets and played some multiplayer BJ i cant belive the amounts of 20s and Blackjacks the dealer recieved ive played cards for over 20 years and know they rigged it. They put you in certain situations over and over such as double downs on ur 10 vs a dealer 6 and draw u a 2 or 3 for like 13 then the dealer flips over a 4 and then ten for example. they know how to get u tilted then u raise ur wagers then they take it all STAY AWAY From the Site

    yeah, but my check arrived and i am certain will cash so hey, so far,
    the weird part was that they wanted 3 times a digital photo
    it just was werid
    cause many books will accept a photocopy at kinko's faxed over in a few mins
    maybe after i told them i worked for the fbi they got scared or something
    i mean u gotta threaten these people a little to scare em into thinking u are someone special

    here is what i told them on the phone and online chat, i said heylisten up, i am not uploading [censor] for you guys
    i am going to make a simple photocopy of my license and other paperwork for you and then i am going to fax it to you from kinko's
    or you will get a can of whoopass opened up on all of you
    and so she suddenly said, ok, we can accept that from you, that is ok in your case or something like that, and she gave me some fax number that i could fax the [censor] to
    and i made the kinko's lady fax it for me for a couple bucks

    maybe the threats worked, hard to say but she agreed to accept a photo copy and fax instead of the other way they presented to me

    one month i won $75 and cashed that out another month i got up to $300 or more and cashed that out
    and they arrived and were cashed for cash at the bank after i finally got these documents to them faxed in a clear orderly manner with their bank statement page and other stuff that you have to fill out
    if u get up over $1000 stop playing and do a first cash out and at least make sure all your documentation can be accepted
    preferable you should win about $100 and send them what they want and try cashing that out before losing or winning big money only to find out that somehow your documents are incomplete or not enough for them
    but yes, it was some trouble getting the original documents sent to them in the manner that they wanted, clear, photocopies or digital is what they wanted
