CRsportsBet and BetMayor Saga

Since I have a sports betting account with BetMayor.eu, I was obviously concerned when I was told by Jeff about a 60 day payouts delay due to BetMayor being bought by a company in Panama called Media-Tech, Inc.  Since I only have about $200 in my account, I wasn't too worried since I can afford a loss but still, no one likes to lose money.

Today, Kennedy whom I have known for about 5 years and is actually the one that introduced me to BetMayor, called me.  He basically told me that he now works for CRsportsBet.ag.  He told me that he left BetMayor because he was not certain about their future.

He said he felt responsible to his players because he recommended them to BetMayor and since they are currently in a financial crisis, he wanted to offer me a deal that his CrsportsBet allowed him to make.  I would get an account with CRsportsBet with my current BetMayor balance in it for free and I would just have to roll it over 10 times.

Obviously, I took him up on his offer since Kennedy has never steered me wrong and I never say no to free money. 

After I had signed up with CRsportsBet and gotten my money in my account, I decided to do a bit of research about the book since I never heard of them.

Well, they are a new book for sure since there is not a lot about them.  I did run into an interested article by SportsbookSOS where the CEO of CRsportsBet talks about whether or not they have a relationship with BetMayor or not.  Their CEO, James Chu pretty much says that they do not and that they have been around since 2013 as a private sportsbook and became open to the public this year.

In any case, I'll keep you guys posted when I finish my rollover and ask for a payout.  Since they are a new book, I would suggest to anyone who is thinking about getting their NBA 100% cash bonus to only send $100-$300 to start with since they are a recreational sportsbook.
