Blacklist Bookmaker

Mon Sep 16, 2013 3:59 pm

Could we have a list of bookmakers that we should not go?

I like to say something. You know there's some Bookmaker Review sites like SBR. SBR is not very reliable since they have promotion/sponsor relationship with some books. They used to have a so-called "B" book called Betislands. Betislands went bankrupt and failed to pay players. So even SBR ratings can be tricky. I know many books rated "D" in SBR and many friends of mine never had any problems. So good idea to share your experiences..there's too many scam books around!

Well, I used to think SBR list is reliable..

Not really..

User complaints/comments are useful but most of ratings are joke.
Most of their ratings are based on how much xxx bookie pays them. Just pay them money and you're a good B bookie. Just pay them money and you're a classy "A" Book!

There's many honest "D" books there, they're graded "D" why? Cause they don't pay money to SBR, lol.

Best rating is your rating. How you can expect SBR to be objective about bookies when these bookies are their sponsor?!

Let's have a look to SBR Recommanded Books List..

5Dimes A+ (LoL. Are you kidding me? Tony D*ckhead's bookie is an A+ book?)
Betonline A- (You gotta be kidding me)
Sportsinteraction B+ (LMAO!)

Some other so-called "A" books in SBR: betanysports.eu, justbet, islandcasino, vietbet and famous Betislands! Betislands bankrupt now, lol.

Yngwie is right.
Let me say some more words in this subject.
SBR's audience is not the same like our audience. Here is arbusers more than 95% of the posters are pro players, while most of the SBR's posters are square gamblers. SBR's list would never be good for pro players, even though if you read between the lines you will be able to have good conclusions.
The criteria that SBR is using have nothing to do with our criteria. Where are the Asians in their list? Only Pinnacle is cadred correctly, for obvious reasons.
I had a rating sustem in the old site, but this require a lot of time and effort from my side, so i decided to drop it. You can have a very accurate picture of every bookmaker under that bookmakers and exchanges section of arbusers. My reviews are indeed old, but comments are completing the picture.
