First off, I would like to emphasise that I am not accusing the above site of being a scam. However, I am beginning to be slightly concerned.

1 - I signed up and made a deposit
2 - I made a couple of bets, some won, some lost, everything worked as planned
3 - For the last week or two, I have been unable to log in. www.btcsportsbetting.com works, but then after I enter my username and password... nothing
4 - This is the same on two entirely different internet connections
5 - I therefore have a couple of bitcoins locked away that I am unable to access
6 - They have not replied to a question I asked them on their twitter account ( http://twitter.com/#!/BTCSportsbet )
7 - They have not replied to emails I have sent enquiring at cs@btcsportsbetting.com

Anybody else in the same boat?

their twitter is @btcsportsbet but they are not affiliated with http://btcsportsbet.com which is a different service and has been around for a long time.

btcsportsbetting.com's announcement thread has another report of problems: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=30327.0

How stupid do you have to be to trust a site on private whois using free web hosting that looks like a pile of shit a 4 year old made?

Another day, another bitcoin website disappears with everyone's money.

Do you know what it's like to be built this way?

Maybe we should start a daily dead pool on who vanishes the day after.

Hold on. Let me go register btcdeadpool.org real quick.  Cheesy

Too late.  Site was already registered, established, took BTC and died.  All within the time it took you to type out that post.

Just to clear it up (and thanks koin above) - BTCSportsBet.com has nothing to do with this, has been up since January (the dark ages of bitcoin) and everyone has been paid consistently with no problems.

So if you want a legit trusted sportsbook that has paid out thousands of BTC, try it out.

[SHAMELESS PLUG ALERT]

Some days a site comes around that actually gives the community Bitcoin instead of stealing it Wink

User: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=32369

Doesn't look like they've logged on since September 11th.

Would be a good idea for that user to pop on and calm fears right now. Can any board admins try and get a comment from them?

Sorry everyone we haven't been keeping an eye on this board much since football started.

We are having problems with the login on our main site.  Please use www.abcgrand.com as a backup until we get the issue sorted out.

Not to throw stones, but this site is affiliated with Jazz/ABC Islands Sportsbook - currently rated D by SBR for non payment:

9/15/2011 04:32 PM
JazzSports payout troubles
JazzSports (SBR rating D) users report being owed $206,255. On August 4th, 2011, SportsbookReview reported that the slow-pay sportsbook told players that payments would be made during the beginning of the football season. To date, none of the players have confirmed payment. One of the players who is owed more than $100,000 posted today on SBRforum indicating that he has not received payment from JazzSports in over six months. The player also pointed out that he has been limited to $250 maximum wagers and placed on a 30-second delay at the sportsbook.

JazzSports, which also operates LooseLines and abc Islands has been lowered from a sportsbook rating of D+ to D. SBR will update this report as players confirm payment or as more information becomes available.

I am still using abcgrand.com for wagering as I have a little BTC still left in there.  Has anyone been paid recently?  Do many wager there?
