Default OPINIONS FROM SPORTSBOOKS REGARDING LOST FUNDS IN OTHER BOOKS

EVERYONE KNOWS ABOUT THE ACES GOLD, ALLADIN AND CAMELOT SITUATION AND THERE ARE ALSO RUMORS ABOUT ALLWAORLD AND GRAND CENTRAL NOW. MY QUESTION IS THIS, IF I GOT OR GET BURNED BY ANY BOOKS IS THERE ANY SORT OF DEAL I CAN MAKE WITH ANOTHER BOOK?? I PROPOSE THE FOLLOWING: IF I GET BURNED I AM WILLING TO MATCH 100% WITH A NEW BOOK FOR THE LOST MONEY, GIVE A 10 TIME ROLL OVER AND A 90 DAY WAITING PERIOD FOR ANY WITHDRAWELS INCLUDING WINNINGS. WILL I HAVE ANY TAKERS OUT THERE? JUST CURIOUS TO KNOW IF SOMEONE IS INTERESTED AND IF NOT IS THERE ANOTHER REQUIREMENT THAT WOULD MAKE SOMEONE TAKE MY LOST FUNDS.

Although it may be a little late to ask this question now that the books have our money...

the problem with this is that the book that makes this offer has no way to confirm the balance at the book that went under.

The other problem is that we would be asking books to extend a pretty hefty bonus to us. I would think that the rollover requirement would have to be around 20 to 30 times to make it worthwhile to the book.

Good point buddy boy

Shoebox, u are asking for a 100% bonus, with a 10 time rollover.....some would argue that a 25% bonus w/a 10 time rollover
is a losing proposition. Another problem...Say u get a book to go for it, but they ask u for a 30 time rollover....What happens then
if that book goes belly up before u reach your rollover requirement?

There is only 4 books I would trust with that kind of rollover requirement(30x)...Olympic, CRIS, WWTS, and WSEX. With a 30x rollover requirement it may take two years to accomplish that feat.

shoebox,

Things are bad shoebox. There will be no real bailouts this time around. Books are not in good enough shape to offer 100% and 10X rollover. How many burnt players given state of industry would chance chasing bad $$$ with good $$$ with things so shaky anyway?

Bullseye, WTF are you talking about??
What do you know? How much do you want to bet there will be offers to bail out these places, even if there are big rollovers. If you don't know what you are talking about, don't speak.

Shoebox-

I am very intrigued by your name. A guy I know that has been around awhile tells me stories about a very sharp gambler from the east coast that went by the name of the shoebox.
Anyway, Cascade made a rollover type proposal. Some of the players with large balances were reluctant to get involved because of the rollover requirement and the fact they would have to wait so long to be able to withdraw funds. The Philosopher suggested a volume rebate deal, which seems to have had more support. Personally I prefer the volume rebate for reasons that will be discussed in the chat, but I'm willing to talk about either.
