    So I deposit $250ish take a bonus 100% cash and go on a hot run and they use this bullshit rule stating I was betting too much per game or some shit to justify stealing almost 7k from me. Essentially if the wagers lost they would never reimburse me my losses but since the majority won they confiscated a shit ton and freerolled me. If there system accepts the wager they have to honor it no? There were no steam plays or bad lines or anyhing non recreational just a straight up con job using any bogus rule they can to steal. Here's the email they sent me.

    Also can someone tell me who to contact for a matter like this to help me on sbr? I am banned from sbr so would need maybe someone on sbr's email...

    If someone could post my story on the sportsbook and industry forum so they get negative press for this bullshit that would be great. Maybe it will make them do the right thing and honor the wagers their system accepted. Clear freeroll.


    Is it not the sportsbooks responsibility to place limits on my sports wagers in their system if they want to have a rule that states you can only bet a certain ammount per game when you haven't met rollover? Surely they would have been fine with what I was doing as long as I lost nothing would have been mentioned.... Someone please post this on sbr and help me out thanks.

    I feel for you. Bonus cash/% is not free! It puts you into a new set of terms and conditions. I had a sizeable beef with Game Time a few years ago, but they had the " small print" behind their position. Just my experience. I am now cautious about bonuses.

    I never take the sign up bonuses for these reasons. I did it my first time and hit a bunch of parlays and all that fun stuff and was told I had a rollover bet amount of $10,000 before I could receive a payout. The rules are crappy but I do not see why they would take it from you. Thats not cool....
