Here are some of the latest news in the sportsbook industry last week: two CentSports players reported payout delays, a Bet770 player sent a payout complaint, Bodog is now licensed by the UK Gambling Commission, the BetDSI website experienced some issues and VIP Sports will go out of business. Here are the details:

– Two CentSports players claimed they were not paid their rewards checks within the listed time-frame of two months. The players have waited for their payout for five and twelve months respectively.

CentSports is a free rewards website that gives customers .10 starting bankrolls as well as additional cash if third-party referral programs are completed. CentSports does not take deposits.

– Last Thursday the BetDSI website was having intermittent issues causing page slowdown. According to BetDSI management the site has stabilized.
