PlayUG attempting to solicit BetUS players
We have been made aware of PlayUG.com or PlayUnderground. This brand new website, registered only in January, is a members only site, with nothing on the homepage but a login box. The place is being run by two ex-employees of BetUS, who were fired at the end of 2006. These employees must have taken some names with them as several BetUS customers and, only BetUS players, have called us regarding this new shop. They claim to be able to pick and receive money anywhere in the US, but certainly have not been around long enough to establish that kind of network.
This operation apparently does not have any deep backing and beginning anew in today’s gaming climate is a frightening proposition. PlayUG is in no way affiliated with BetUS. The ex-employees are also spreading unsubstantiated rumors that BetUS is in trouble, which is totally false.21 comments

I have accounts at both Betus and the UG . Betus has always been a slow paying book however Play UG had no problem paying 19,000 like it was nothing. I still play at both books , but find that I feel better going to sleep at night knowing that play ug owes me money than betus , because betus might take 4 days to process a payout and ug pays like gold!!!!!!!!REPLY

Well I take back what I said in my previous statement about PlayUG. They sent an agent to deliver the money . Thats true , but they changed there wagering policy on me 6 times over the weekend to try and push me into wagering the way they wanted. I was told that was due to an IT issue . Tonight they did it to me 3 times and I feel I have been set up. I still have action with them right now . I don’t care if I win or lose. I don’t want to get paid anymore and don’t wish to pay them . Conveinantly there office is not open now to discuss what happened , but I will have them contacted tomorrow. Let this stand as notice to close my account . I am finished with them. My sugestion is to stick with the big books like betus. They might pay slow , but you go to sleep at night without getting strong armed . In my opinion the best best book is the greek they are honest ,pay the next morning , and don’t try and scare with agents like play ug . They are basically an illegal bookmaking operation who runs there business off of a website with no information. They did pay , but they seem like a parlor operation who wants to act like a legal book in costa rica , but run like your old bookie operation in the US. That part doesn’t bother me , but when you can’t play what you want when you want and the amounts very based on what they will allow you to bet I have a problem. I called and wanted to bet on the second half of the syracuse game on south alabama they made me call twice and there agent Mario acted smart with me and did not want to let me bet on them . He wasn’t sure I would be able to bet on them . I called a 3rd time and it was fine of course if I took syracuse. On one phone call they tried to limit me to betting 500 on a game when you are told you can bet 3000 , 2500, 1000, and 500 based on how the clerk or linesman feel they want to allow or push you into the play. Its like you can’t play the way you want. The agent that came to see me tried to scare me by telling me he and his family are old school from New York and made it seem like if something goes wrong I might get hurt. (he didn’t actually say he would ) I will have my agent or lawyer contact them to settle the situation(my account) , but I am done. What do you think about Play UG ?????REPLY

I don’t know about PlayUG.com but i can sure tell you about betus.com i have a bad $1200 check sitting right here. from them! that cost me over $200 in fines!

and file a Complaint and stop these punks in there tracks!
they also trademark infringe on famous people to attract clients!
and have several lawsuits pending against them,
they have let there trademark expire in 2006 so don’t be surprised if they close up shop once the heat gets to hot! and take the money and run! or hide should i say!
