it was considered the best when it came to payouts, beating out Bookmaker and 5dimes, with same day payouts every time. what do you recommend mr professional. all online books seem to be shady, even the 'best' ones

Everyone else has the best book and we are the idiots for playing at BI, that is what you get at Covers - guys that call fighting kicking a dude lying on the floor.

I am so sick to my stomach right now, never have a thought it would be my money they run off with.  about 1100 in money I won fair and square and I have no recourse.  But Ryan on Email Chat says they are not done, even though CS is by email only now and teh phone wagering line says they are closed.  Dark day.

It's over Phantom..take the loss and move on..you have a better chance of winning the lottery than you of getting paid by BI. They got me for more than 6k but not a thing we can do about it.

WTF? Is this BETED all over again? I'm not a member of Betislands, but I am reading that they're closing down operations and running with their players money. I hear they have several players with close to six figure accounts. This makes me sick.

My condolences to all of you that trusted this book

I honestly feel bad for everyone who was ripped off by this book, but I've stated this before, and I'll state it again. Any Canadians not using Pinnacle is foolish, and any Americans using any other books except for 5dimes is foolish (maybe BetCris as well). The bottom line is whether you have complaints about either book or not, they're the best in the industry. Pinnacle is the only book I would feel comfortable leaving large sums of money in. Why are people leaving close to 6 figures in a online sports book which has been running for less than 2 years, and was only rated a B book? That's just foolish, and you're asking for trouble. As I stated before, I really feel for those who were scammed in this case, but I would suggest that this be the final lesson you learn regarding this matter.

Yup I should have looked before depositing 400 on sunday. I got it up to 2400 and found out this crap yesterday. I was wondering why they wouldnt pay me. Such BS!  Here some hope though guys. I talked to OSGA and here is what they said:

You are now chatting with 'Dave'

Dave: Hello.  Welcome to the Off Shore Gaming Association. How may I assist you?

you: yes I, hearing that Betislands will not be paying out. They closed down and ran with players money according to sbr. Is this true?

Dave: no... BI is having a big issue with their GM leaving them, but they are trying very hard to fix things for players....but we still dont know how his is going to play out yet

you: k sbr and bangthebook is saying all Betislands players are screwed. Thats why I was wondering

Dave: theyre jumping the gun


At least a little hope

BI is absolutely finished... Try to get absorbed by another book with freeplay/rollover.
