Bookmaker.eu Website Down – (Update) Site is Live Again

July 16, 2021
Bookmaker.eu offline

Bookmaker.eu (SBA Rating C-) and its sister websites BetCRIS and JustBet.cx are all offline and have been for over 24 hours. Companies will often pick this time of year to perform any server maintenance or software upgrades as it is the slowest time of year sports-betting-wise.

Their homepage simply says “We’ll be back soon! Sorry for the inconvenience but we’re performing some maintenance at the moment.”

Some customers are starting to think the worst however. It is not unheard of for an offshore sportsbook to flip the switch and turn out the lights and leave(along with everyone’s money). It has happened before and it will happen again.

One customer just wrote in today “It looks like they’ve had “maintenance” for over 24 hours and now they don’t have an update time on their website. I have a feeling all money will be lost and they’ll go dark soon……”

If Bookmaker.eu and BetCRIS are really shutting down without warning and issuing payout options to clients, it would come as a huge surprise to the industry. BetCRIS is largely respected in the offshore sportsbook community and has even signed deals with major leagues such as the NFL.
