    I only deposited a small amount to WorldWager and lost there so I never had to deal with a cashout, but I know someone who had to twist WorldWager's arm just to get a cashout of a couple hundred dollars, and the customer support was fairly clueless. On any given day they'd have several lines that were off by some ridiculous amount. I saw on SportsBookReview that they're now claiming they have the right to cancel bets if the line is off by 15 cents or more, and sometimes they cancel bets months after the fact, which means they must be cancelling multiple bets each day given how far off their lines can be!

    Just about everything about that book is awful. Even their software is awful.

    I never has an account but I actually set foot in one the several locations Lucky's occupied. I knew a girl who worked there and picked her up one day. Total of maybe 3 employees including Jeff Pearson himself. A stone over muscular azzhole. Jeff liked to act tuff and lifted a lot of wieghts, one of the biggest thiefs ofshore has ever seen if not the biggest.

    I actually forgot to mention SportsMarket (who actually bought out crook Steve Turner, who was running LoneStar) I had my best run to date when i called on that Monday to get paid, I was informed Turner left the Island...Luckily Sportsmarket bought out LoneStar and did cover all balances!

    We had to wait a week before we could withdrawl any funds but they did pay us...

    LoneStar has to be on the list but I don't think many people played with them...This was about 7 years ago...

    I would have to say Aces was one of the better shops I ever played, simply becasuse of all the money made there because of that NO VIG friday. My remaining balance was picked up by Royal and Cascade so in the end Aces was a good memory. The worst book I can remember playing was Jazz. Horific software, writing down the future wagers and putting them in a folder were the two main reason I left

    He was operating out of San Jose Costa Rica and since then I found out he was ripping off everyone. He never even introduced himself to me, I saw him working on a computer while I was waiting for the girl. I know he moved around some in San Jose, I also know he had (has) a ton of domain names to use for new books.

    Not anymore from what I know Brock. Dennis and his brothers are still around though (unfortunately). He got into scamming people other ways teaming up with his brother in Baton Rouge, LA but that was the last I heard from them.

    I stranded a 5 digit balance at ESB. However, my lifetime withdrawals from them greatly exceeded my deposits. I am looking forward to meeting Dennis A and his crew in hell so I can beat the s.hit out of them for eternity. If it is true that he just got sentenced to 18 months, I hope he takes in the rear every night for all the times he stuck it his customers in the same place.

    My two other least favorites were BML Sports and Global Wager.
