    What to believe? I'm not sure what answer you are looking for but.... If you are gambling online then you are depositing money in an account, probably out of the country, and then later hoping you can get that money out. To me, (and me only), this is highly risky and not worth it. Where I live all online betting is illegal so those companies have no legal obligation to pay me even if I win. I bet in person in Nevada/Las Vegas, with cash and a paper slip, or don't bet at all. Now some tribal casinos offer sports betting so that's an option too. I do believe that some of the online betting sites screw their customers. I live in the USA and the state just to the south of me has legal sports betting through an app that's regulated by the state lottery so I my try that but still realize the risks. If you really want to bet online then use a sportsbook in your home country. Bottom line- don't deposit money in an account that you can't afford to lose. It could just be a legitimate bookkeeping error by the company or software issue but your money can disappear quickly. Your experience may differ of course.

    It's kinda wierd how sportsbetting is literally pushed by major media outlets UFc included and still illegal in many of the states...so odd.

    I ran a $400 CAD deposit up to $48000 over 3 or 4 years before they limited me. After getting limited I made my first withdrawal and they paid me within days with no games or bullshit. I highly recommend them, but you have to have the expectation if you have a legit edge they will eventually limit you.

    Ever since Draft Kings became a sponsor the gambling angle has really picked up. Jon Anik also likes to talk betting odds, which is one of reasons I like him.

    It started with NJ but lots of states have since jumped on the online sports gambling bandwagon. https://sportsbook.draftkings.com/h...=sports-betting/where-is-sports-betting-legal

    Thanks man, live betting mma when it was first introduced was like shooting fish in a barrel. The key was to keep bet sizes small to fly under their radar and milk the bookies for a much as possible.

    Yeah other part the system was to have 5 or 6 different sportsbooks open and hit them all with small frequent bets. Lots of easy money opportunities back in the day with tonnes of fighters having horrid cardio and bookies not recognising the importance of it. Live betting is still beatable today but not as easy as it was.

    Keep in mind a lot of the hate is from people getting limited and scammers getting cut off. They offer so many betting options it leaves themselves vulnerable to sharps and scammers so they have a twitchy risk management department. The certainly do have a bad reputation for limiting bettors, but as far as their reputation for being an honest book that will pay what they owe they're top notch.

    Best livebet in the world, good for prebets too, but nowadays they'll limit you around the 5k profit mark if not earlier unless you're showing bad tendencies.

    It's been a very slow start, as most years start out for me. Little over 20k profit with a little under half coming from LB. Seems like March/April has been tough on most. I'll PM you
