The inbox has been getting filled for the last two weeks with payout complaints. Not the usual suspects though, instead a couple of Elite-rated books are having difficulties.

The inbox has been getting filled for the last two weeks with payout complaints. Not the usual suspects though, instead a couple of Elite-rated books are having difficulties in paying their players in a timely fashion.

The floodgates opened last week when we got an inquiry from a player regarding ACH payouts.  The player told us that he had been paid before in just a few days but that he had been waiting. We had this report on several operations including 5Dimes, Bodog and BetAnySports.  As of today, 5Dimes has discontinued ACH payouts until thier problems get sorted out.

Still, the big advantage of playing at an Elite-rated sportsbook is that players will ultimately get paid. The outfits mentioned above will make good on any outstanding payouts, but it may take some time to get everyone squared away.
