They don't like winners. I bet they didn't ask for verification when you were losing?

Dude, all crypto betting sites are illegal and scammy. Use bet365, williamhill,  pinnacle sports. They will never steal your money and you can always appeal to IBAS.

Everything I like is either illegal, immoral or fattening.

In their main thread, you said you have passed their KYC procedures a month back. Did you ask them why they would want you to go through KYC once again? Cross posting their quote from the main thread

This is what everyone has to deal with when it comes to bitcoin sportsbetting sites now.

If you look deep enough in their terms and conditions you'll probably find a clause that says that if they suspect any suspicious behavior, then reserve the right to ask for further verification and hold your funds in the meanwhile. Even if you did do KYC before already.

That's why I never like to bet too much money on these sportsbooks, it's too risky. And the verification process is so slow. As others mentioned, most of these sportsbooks are quite shady in nature in the first place.

Take a look what they have done here, then you know with what you are dealing 21.5 BTC TAKEN BY SPORTSBET.IO

As long as it is too difficult to put sportsbet scam into google, people will continue suffering losses!

BetKing is neither illegal nor scammy and bettors who signed up with Game Protect also never had an issue with NitrogenSports


Use bet365, williamhill,  pinnacle sports. They will never steal your money and you can always appeal to IBAS.
Pinnacle Sports is based in Curacao and Malta, whereas IBAS is based in the UK and not responsible for Curacao or Malta!

I do think that a lot of these sportsbooks don't make it clear that people need to pass KYC before they can withdraw, which results in a lot of people having these issues when they do try to withdraw. If they require KYC, then they should make it clear when you deposit that you are expected to complete KYC, or better yet, conduct KYC before you're allowed to deposit.

It's shady how they selectively "verify" those who win big amounts, and hold onto their funds for long preiods of time knowing that they would most likely not be comfortable with providing ID.

Also, I don't know why they are asking you KYC for a second time. Once should be enough. I wouldn't trust Sportsbet.io personally, tbh, because of these policies that they have.
