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.

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?
