    What are the alarming signs of a scam bookie?

    Whenever you come across a betting site you’ve never heard of before, beware! Make sure you pay close attention to the following alarming signs. Contrary to legit bookmakers with high ratings, these shady brands are characterized by the following tendencies.

    Sites that change their domains often

    Shady bookmakers often change the web address and/or domain of their sites. Thus, they can avoid being associated with a website that has negative reviews. These types of blacklisted bookmakers don’t resort to completely new rebranding tactics. Instead, they keep levitating around similarly sounding names for their brand.

    Bookies with way too generous bonuses

    When you come across a welcome bonus that seems unrealistically high, you should take a look at the bonus terms. When a bookie is ready to greet you with a lucrative reward while expecting zero investment on your part, this should sound the alarm. Bonuses with no deposit or wagering requirements are just a myth or a scam!

    Lack of or no longer valid license

    Be constantly on the lookout for licensed bookmakers that are regulated by some of the most authoritative commissions. This will be a sure sign of a bookie you can trust. On the other hand, blacklisted bookmakers have no valid license or advertise a shady document from an even shadier authority.

    No telephone number for contact, email and/or live chat

    If it is next to impossible to get in touch with the customer support team of a given bookmaker, you should look for an alternative. Do not trust a betting site that lacks adequate customer care. The majority of reliable bookmakers take pride in 24/7 live chat support in addition to their email for correspondence and toll-free phone.

    Widely fluctuating markets and odds

    Of course, odds and especially live odds are dynamic. Still, the bookies with the best odds wouldn’t allow for a surge or a plunge in their coefficient without a valid reason. Therefore, should you see a sportsbook light up like a Christmas tree due to the constantly fluctuating odds, take your stake some site else. Stay away from betting sites that cannot guarantee transparency of their markets!


    What are some of the worst practices blacklisted bookmakers have?

    Scam and shady bookies vary in their fraudulent ways. One site may have adopted one illegal way to scam its punters, while another may resort to more underhand practices. However, most blacklisted bookmakers are known to do all or either of the following:

    • delay or refuse to pay out your winnings
    • change the odds seconds before confirming your bet
    • offer Cash Out with bugs and other glitches that freeze your betslip
    • block or limit accounts without proper explanation
    • give away bonuses that later proclaim as invalid
    • spam players with promotional emails and text messages
    • use your personal data as a means to trick you out of your cash

    What to do in case we have been scammed by a blacklisted bookmaker?

    The truth is you can raise your objections and seek ways to punish the betting site that has taken advantage of you. Should you become a victim of a shady bookie, then the best counteraction is to turn to the government for assistance. Look for the authority that deals with gambling. Apart from that, keep in mind that non-governmental institutions like IBAS, for instance, can also assist you whenever gambling fraud is involved.
