TopBet Complaints Surface

TopBet was already a lower tiered option before complaints began popping up for the offshore sportsbook. We’ve lowered their rating on our TopBet Review issued players a warning. SBR has reported multiple complaints, including customer service telling players that Bitcoin was no longer a payout option.

Management did state after the fact that Bitcoin is still a cashier option for both deposits and withdrawals. They were also adamant that users with pending withdrawals would be paid, but did not provide a timeline for processing. TopBet seems to be in trouble, and it’s a sportsbook we would avoid until further notice.

West Virginia Introduced Bill to Legalize Sports Betting

House Bill 2751 was introduced in West Virginia to legalize sports betting. It authorizes the State Lottery Commission to “promulgate legislative rules establishing sports betting.” Like other sports betting bills introduced across the country, the WV bill is contingent on the federal ban being overturned or ruled unconstitutional.

In 2017, Michigan, Maryland, New York, Pennsylvania, and South Carolina have all introduced bills to legalize sports betting.

Bitcoin’s New High

Over the past week, Bitcoin has risen to its highest price ever. The crypto-currency, which has been adopted by offshore gambling markets is easily the best choice as a cashier option at online sportsbooks for Americans.

Bitcoin was as high as $1,290 early Friday morning. It’s the first time it has surpassed the price of gold, which was somewhere around 1,200 per ounce.
