Less than a week after it shut down, respected Costa Rican sportsbook Legends Sports has announced that it will transfer all existing player balances to fellow site WagerWeb Sportsbook.
The move comes with a controversial 10x playthrough, which is substantially higher than the expected 2x rollover that industry sites were predicted.
A statement released by Legends on its website read: "Due to recent events surrounding Legends Sports’ gaming license being revoked in Panama, we have ceased accepting wagers at this time.
"After careful consideration WagerWeb Sportsbook and Casino has agreed to give players from Legends a new home with their full balance intact."
"This is a huge undertaking, and as such we ask that players be patient and understanding as we accommodate every one of our new clients."
"WagerWeb will be assuming responsibility for all accounts both funded and non-funded. Wagerweb will be requiring all pass through accounts with a balance fulfil a maximum 10X (Rollover of their balance) before any funds can be withdrawn."
"WagerWeb has agreed to assist Legends customers for the good of the industry, as well as the well being of all Legends customers."
"WagerWeb will be calling out to all Legends customers and will be providing Customer Service to ensure the transition to WagerWeb goes smoothly and without incident. Wagerweb has always been a Sportbook that caters to the recreational player and as such will be upholding the terms and conditions currently has listed on its Website. All WagerWeb Terms and Conditions and/or Rules must be agreed to prior to any wager taken place."
"Please contact WagerWeb directly with any questions and concerns."
Ugh, this would seriously piss me off if I had a high balance with Legends!
Seriously, 10x playthrough on a balance you had at another site? Ridiculous.
I am lucky that I only had $0.22 in there after my last withdrawal. I think my highest I have had in there was around $300 at one point. I couldn't fathom having to wager $3,000 just to get my money out.
