MyBookie is under fire after trying to come after Dave Portnoy the founder of Barstool Sports. If you don’t know what MyBookie is by now, you probably never listed to a podcast because it seems like they sponsor 95% of podcasts…
But here is the thing…
You might not realize it….
MyBookie is an ILLEGAL sports betting website.
And before last night’s National Championship Portnoy was looking for a LEGAL bookie to place the biggest bet of his life….. And then that’s when a MyBookie employee started to run his mouth because Dave didn’t place the bet. Well why would he bet with an illegal sports bookie? And one that… Can’t even pay out people’s bets and has been known for stealing money and identity.
“I think Texas Tech is the easiest bet in the history of sports. I have been actively trying to place a $250k bet on Texas Tech tonight.” – @stoolpresidente @pointsbetusa pic.twitter.com/Au09H6aRe0— Barstool Radio (@BarstoolRadio) April 8, 2019
Not trying too hard, because we would take that bet in a hot minute https://t.co/aqnKpB356K— MyBookie AG (@AnonymousGamblr) April 8, 2019
1. Ive heard from multiple people Mybookie doesn’t pay small wagers never mind 250k. 2. You’d never accept on credit. 3. Didn’t see this till now. Stick to dealing with fake gamblers. Least trustworthy site on the internet. I trust Bubbly Gang more than you. Anything else? https://t.co/WZF1c1MVoI— Dave Portnoy (@stoolpresidente) April 9, 2019
Then… The Internet spoke..
Y’all can’t even pay out 150 dollars let alone 250k— Jimmy-Steve™ (@JayRayEJr) April 9, 2019

MyBookie is run like a carnival. it’s designed for you to lose and to never cash out. such trash— jack croak (@JungleCbretts98) April 9, 2019
They don’t pay small wages because people take the sign up bonus. You have to bet a certain way, for a certain period of time before it pays out. Virtually impossible. They already know that though.— Saltwater Slayer 🐠 (@Bri_onthebeach) April 9, 2019
Sports gambling is sketchy. mybookie is like 8 mile. You just don’t go down that road.— TREVSTONE (@TrevStonePSE) April 9, 2019
What does Portnoy have to say?
Only idiots would gamble with @betmybookie pic.twitter.com/4QqoMnbKF5— Dave Portnoy (@stoolpresidente) April 9, 2019
Needless to say..
Only idiots gamble with MyBookie.
If @betmybookie pays me 500k cash I will stop talking about them. Until then it will be my mission to expose them as the frauds they are everyday for the rest of my life.— Dave Portnoy (@stoolpresidente) April 9, 2019
Update: Dave Has Received A DM.

Would you trust this man to pay you? @betmybookie #shook https://t.co/QFTVPvrqRq— Dave Portnoy (@stoolpresidente) April 9, 2019
Pat McAfee has joined in and suspended MyBookie ads.
Roughly an hour after posting about all of this feud, Pat McAfee has decided to suspend MyBookie Ads as well.
In light of recent events between @stoolpresidente and @betmybookie, I am suspending all ads with them indefinitely.. I was not aware of any problems with their treatment of sports gamblers. We’re gonna investigate & figure out the next steps. I don’t enjoy the thought of letting— Pat McAfee (@PatMcAfeeShow) April 9, 2019
listeners down..I’m very lucky that folks listen, it’s our job as a show to make sure you’re taken care of. I also trust/respect Dave’s judgment in situations. If he’s raising concerns, I understand that I should wonder as well.— Pat McAfee (@PatMcAfeeShow) April 9, 2019
I hope you have an incredible night. Cheers
Everyone will have to wait and see if more podcasters drop MyBookie, and what the end result will be.
The amount of customer horror stories from @betmybookie today is truly horrifying. It’s hard enough to win gambling without your book refusing to pay you. Hopefully we saved some people some money today. Please retweet this hashtag to help spread awareness #mybookieisascam.— Dave Portnoy (@stoolpresidente) April 9, 2019
This isn’t about me anymore. This is about protecting all the innocent people @betmybookie scams out of money. I will never stop. Ever. Unless @betmybookie pays me 500k https://t.co/6OOC57inIY— Dave Portnoy (@stoolpresidente) April 10, 2019
