    Default WARNING: AVOID Oddsmaker/Oddspoker.com!

    So today I receive a flyer in the mail. Oddspoker.com (a subsidiary of Oddsmaker.com) is offering me a 300% match bonus AND a 20% rakeback bonus. Damn, that sounds good, right?

    I chose to do a little research before getting a full hard-on about this (as all of you should be doing before depositing money onto some random site). Oddsmaker.com (the sportsbook portion) has had a SHITLOAD of problems in the past. Recently, a player known as JIMMYMAC filed a complaint with Sportsbook Review. To make a long story short, JIMMYMAC used a $500 free-play bonus and brought his account up to $8400. When it came time for him to cash out, Oddsmaker.com denied him his money. Why? Oddsmaker.com claims (and proved) that JIMMYMAC told his father about this promotion. This went down as "bonus abuse" and voided JIMMYMAC's winnings.

    And most importantly, SBR's rating on Oddsmaker.com:

    This is another article written about Oddsmaker...though it kind of gives the site a bit of credit:

    And one more...showing how slimy the website really is:
    http://www.osga.com/artman/publish/article_6467.shtml

    The moral of the story: do research before choosing to bonus whore random sites and avoid Oddsmaker.com (at least until they get their shit together).

    Why am I sharing this with all of you? Ehh...I like some of you guys and don't want you guys to get sucked in by a big ol' bonus. Also, I like the attention. I want a "Wow BooG, good post. You are so deserving of this $100 I am going to transfer you."

    So if you want to transfer me $100 for saving you potential thousands, my PokerStars is BooG690.

    By the way, for those of you that don't really know me, the last two paragraphs are jokes (unless you're gonna do it).

    Edit: I see I can't include the website's name in my posts. I apologize for the "spam URLs." Mods, I hope you notice that I am not spamming or advertising this website.
    That's how winners play; we convince the other guy he's making all the right moves.

    New poster without a presentation = words mean shit. Besides, if you're going out of your way to dig up an old post about the site just to refute a complaint as to its legitimacy, you're probably on the payroll or some bullshit. Either way, fuck off.

    LOL at googling and finding your site name, making an account here just to post in this thread and refuting all the research done almost a year ago by an almost respected poster (hehe) with one sentence. Who the hell are you trying to kid? I won't delete the post since it just proves the point that they are crooked as fuck. try a little harder next time. Maybe a photoshop of your withdrawals from the cashier window, or maybe your checking account. Get creative at least.

    He's obviously talking about play money. There's no $ sign. I believe it.

    If it makes any difference, OddsMaker is now on the Merge network.
