Looking for a New Sportsbook

Oddly enough, I am looking for a new sportsbook to take my business because of all of the problems with banking and security where half of the books I used no longer take US clients.

Let me tell you that finding a new book is a tough chore that I hate doing because of all of the pitfalls and traps involved.

In general, I have in the past have gotten pretty good luck in finding decent places for online sports betting by following the following rules when it comes to opening an account with a new sportsbook:

If I choose a new book(for the bonus!) I only deposit $500 or less and take out my winning and initial deposit before the end of October. Anything after is asking for trouble as that is when new books start slow paying.

Also, I never make large wagers($100 or less) and keep my winning small as to not draw attention that would give them an excuse for them to keep my money.

Check out the reviews on the book before hand in trusted sportsbook watchdog websites.

So far, I have narrowed my choices to the following as they seem to have good reviews: and

Where to Find Cupones en Costa Rica

After having lived in Costa Rica for the past few years, I have become a bit tighter on my bankroll since I am not getting any younger and I am planning a trip to Europe as well.
One of the most annoying things in Costa Rica that bothered me was that Costa Rica cupones are hard to find unlike the US where we have lots of sites that offer coupons as well as the Sunday newspapers.
So far I have only found a couple of websites that lists coupons but nothing from grocery stores so if anyone can suggest a website, please let me know!

Costa Rica Gambling Sites Are Taking a Pounding

Wow, it seems like this year many sportsbook and poker websites that are based in Costa Rica are being shut down by the U.S. Government like beted and absolutepoker.

I'm not sure why the US decided that now is a good time to suddenly up its efforts to crack down on these sites other than the fact that they estimate the sportsbook income is worth $12 billion a year.

The funny thing about all of this is that more states are beginning to allow more gambling joints and sports betting a prime example is the State of Maryland.

Ha ha ha, I guess they dont like the competion from overseas.

Bought a House in Costa Rica

I know I have been silent of late but I had good reasons for that. I recently bought some real estate in Costa Rica and am now rennovating it.

I kind of got tired of my old condo which was fine but to be honest, it was just full of young people and it was just too loud living there which is why I decided to buy a house this time to get more peace and quite.

I am certainly not a party pooper as I enjoy the occasional drinking myself but I am also not getting any younger.
