What to do about Bodog?
After reading up on all that has happened at Bodog, I guess things are not looking so great. Since I have been burned in the past, I reacted similar to Smokkee and requested to cash out most of my funds. Eight freekin weeks by courier for the check. That is not a good sign at all. I left $200 in my account figuring the beginner S&Gs are such ultra low variance that I can just build my roll back up playing them without much risk of going broke. What I forgot about is that Bodog is also my only sports book with funds, and football season starts this weekend. I did not leave close to enough in the account to cover the variance associated with football betting. I could go busto! Since I have not had a deposit method for getting close to two years now this is a problem. I need to build the roll up quick to get some padding in place for my balla like football betting. I don’t like betting too much for the first couple of weeks, so this gives me a bit of time to hit the beginner S&Gs and rebuild the roll.
The 8 week cash out delay is pretty scary. I am actually hoping that this is simply an issue with them staying a step ahead of the feds. They had a ton of funds seized recently. They may need to play a shell game of sorts with bank accounts to get the checks to go through unsiezed. At least this is my hope. I am not ready to give up sports betting just yet so hang in the Bodog! Anyone out there use a U.S. friendly sportsbook?
