Default Sportingbet claims half the handle of Nevada

Sbt handle is growing, the nevada handle is shrinking. Now there's trouble brewing in Alderney, home of Sbt.. Under pressure from Alderney regulators for their outright appeals to North American bettors, sbt is looking to move offices offshore. Even thought their betting servers are already out of English jurisdiction, it doesn't seem to be good enough for the regulators, who are trying to exhibit a squeeky clean image.

Sportingbet Trumps Las Vegas Sportsbook Industry
Wednesday September 25, 4:18 pm ET


LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sept. 25, 2002--Nevada State Gaming Control Board recently released statewide sportsbook results for fiscal year end June 2002. The state of Nevada took $2,007,152,347 in handle. During the same period, Sportingbet took $985,758,780 of handle from North America.
Sportingbet (LSE:SBT - News) has quickly grown to about half the size of the entire Nevada sports industry. While Nevada declined by 4.7% year over year, Sportingbet is growing at a rate in excess of 25% annually.

Sportsbook.com's featured wager this week is on the winless Rams.

Sportsbook.com (http://www.sportsbook.com) is the largest of Sportingbet plc's family of Internet gaming sites, offering an enormous selection of odds and wagers. Odds on the defending NFC Champions Rams finishing the season as the Worst NFL Team are currently at 10-1, but the odds on favorite are still the Houston Texans at 2 to 1. Rams are a 10 point favorite this weekend over the Dallas Cowboys.

On the other hand, Rams head coach Mike Martz odds are 10-1 that he will be the First NFL Coach Fired this season. The oddsmakers have Bengals coach Dick LeBeau as the favorite to be fired, at even money.

Sportingbet plc is traded on the London Stock Exchange and operates around the world with operations in Australia, Taiwan, Americas and throughout Europe. Other Sportingbet plc sites include sports.com, sportingbet.com, wallstreet.com, and more.

All that cash and they're slow paying people? Undercapitalized books are scum, but books with plenty of dough who slow pay are Uber-scum.

I do not understand why people play with this group, there software is lousy, lines lousy, not a lot of betting opportunities on games, bad customer service, slow pay. There are so many books that are better and they seem to have the most accounts and money. What am I missing? I would not even take a free account at there books.

Never had a problem with Sportingbet itself (always received my cash within a few days) but I'm not so sure about some of the other companies under the 'Sportingbet umbrella'. Sportsfanatik has been hounded in the past for various reasons... you can't get through to SportingOdds by phone (answering machine states they're closed every time, even though they are supposed to be open)...

Pancho, did you overlook the thread on their slow pay, or do you simply not believe it?

Is sportingbetusa.com the one that has been slow-paying people or has the original sportingbet.com also delayed payments?

Chad,
What happened to the loyalty scheme? And prizes that were claimed before it was terminated?
