A Lack of Ethics by Sportsbook Review and Watch Dog Websites

A Lack of Ethics by Sportsbook Review and Watch Dog WebsitesIn the world of online gambling, they are two sides to every issue whenever they come up.  Since the advent of online sports betting and casino gambling, they have been numerous gambling companies that have stolen players’ money and numerous players that have found ways to steal from gambling companies.

In the early 1990’s the majority of online sportsbooks were located offshore which made it difficult for a player to have any kind of arbitration in case of a dispute.  In most cases, of a legitimate complaint from the player who encountered a bad sportsbook, he would lose his money and there was nothing he could do about it.
