    I wouldn't play there unless it was something like a 100-100 bonus, very risky to even do that, but I might if offered.

    I only ask because they post some really inflated dog/non-public lines - making SIA or Bodog's lines look deadly sharp.

    Those 100 for 100 bonuses are what gets new books and low rated books into trouble. Forum sharps eat those promos up and the books can't handle the payout. They shouldn't offer them if they can't take the lose.

    seems risky to me, but I guess they have some longevity. I'd keep it small if you go there.

    I am a small player (1 dime max) and playing with them on and off for a while now.....no problems so far....they do pay you on time and give you good dog lines...but they do give you double line once they know your betting pattern...I wouldn't recommend to have them as your only out...but shop for lines and play them when they give you a good number...

    I'd rather play with a quality place like thePig. With that name it gives me a warm fuzzy feeling.

    Actually, knowing who is behind The Pig, wouldn't have a problem reccomending them. Especially now that Keith likes them.

    Bet US is pretty bad...I signed up with them (through Sports Insights to get the free month), but they never credited me the promised bonus. When I asked about it, they informed me that my baseball action would only count half towards the rollover (there was nothing about this beforehand). Then I rolled over the bankroll about 4x for a nice profit (initially they claimed it was only a 1x roll), so I pulled out most of what I had but kept about 1.75x my original deposit. They dinged me for the neteller withdrawal ($8 when the payout page said it would be free). I complained and eventually got the money back. Was getting bad vibes, so I scalped what was left of my balance (very small)...busted out. Asked for my bonus again, was denied because of my withdrawal.

    The dog lines were sweet but they didn't last long at all. I definitely would not play there again. I feel fortunate to have taken more money out of them than what I put in, and as I said my main goal was just to check out the Sports Insights data.

    I thought I read 20 or 25% somewhere. One could probably call and get 20% negotiated on a new account, that's pretty average.

    They have actually improved in ratings at SBR, were in the F+ range, now have the guy from Royal. Those lines are insanely good.

    6/9/2006 4:13:00 PM
    SBR Bill Dozer reports: BETUS (SBR rating D) takes imposter website playdsi.com off-line. The website copied a version of the real Diamond Sportsbook (SBR rating A) which uses the url 2betdsi.com. SBR is optimistic that this is a sign the company is moving in a positive and more professional direction. New COO Kevin is addressing the final payout complaint from an SBR reader owed $14,000.

    Doug, are you talking about the BetUS lines? When I go to their website (without logging in)...they list Raiders +3.5 +105...once you log in, it's Raiders +3 -115
