I'm trying to decide whether to register with this broker.

I was on live chat with them and asked who owned the company. They wont release that information.

I asked how many employees they had. They won't release that information.

I asked were they regulated. They said they were regulated by the Gambling Authority of the Netherlands *Antilles*.

I asked for proof (not their site) that they were regulated. They sent this link: https://validator.curacao-egaming.co...6-46250a00002a

I asked a lot of questions about the company, owners and management just to try to see if they are a reputable company and got no information at all, apparently under direction from 'management'.

My final question on live chat was
[Division]: Is there any information you can give me to make me believe that you are a reputable company? Something that I can verify with a third party.
[Hazel - AC]: As we are 10 years in our Brokerage servicing. You can check us in the forum sir regarding our services.
[Division]: What is the forum?
[Hazel - AC]:You can search it in google sir.

She then linked me to a web page from a sports tipping service that said how wonderful AC is. Not exactly the reputable source I was hoping for.

So basically they gave me almost no information to make me feel comfortable depositing money with them so will go for the word of mouth recommendation here.

Have you used them? Would you recommend them? Have you had any issues?

Can you elaborate a bit more? They blocked your account after 1 day and suspended you in 2 days?

I don't understand how they blackmailed you into depositing $100. I contacted them today and its clear that the minimum deposit is EUR 150.

How much of a delay have you experienced on a Saturday?

In November, asianodds system was having issues as there were too many customers. We have since fixed it. Last 2 weekends was much better than before.

As for company ownership, due to legal issues, we cant provide any names. If you need names to feel safe and better, please skip AC as our owners privacy,safety is much more important .

what is the point of digging out threads from 2010 , 7 years ago?

At that time, posts are made by an ex staff which are no longer around today. As such, we do not know what happen at that time.

Raabe, you are trying to discredit/bash us , how have we offended you?

But owner is the same, right?
People never change.
If you did easily reveal personal info years ago you can do other stuff with no hesitation like sink down and run away with money of clients. It's called principles of doing business. And it's, again, basically never change.

You humiliate people with idiotic process of acquiring workable login-password, for example.

You should be banned a long ago for revealing personal info of members of this forum.

Their "business" is so well that its UK company was dissolved 2 years after being registered

Chun Boon Lim is a founder of this UK company and seemingly asianconnect88 owner as well
06 July 1980
Nationality Singaporean
Appointment Type Director
Correspondence Address Blk 868 Tampines St 83 11-195
Singapore
520868

Note that the company's share capital was just 1000 pounds. Whilst asianconnect' representative offered in this forum 300-500 euro for trials and referral and "up to 500k" for successful tipsters.
A year before dissolvement its representative flaunted that he can help with taxes

Thank you for your reply.

So your company is TOP secret, like an CIA, or NSA, probably ?

OK, if you would disclose owners, would they be in a danger ?

If they are doing everything at "a fair-play" mode - nothing to worry about...

A company that been around for more than 10 years can be untrustable?

I find it worrying that since I started the thread there has not been a few responses to say that this is a reputable company from a few people that use them.

If I open an account with this company and have a few thousand euro in the account and then have a dispute with this company and can't access my funds who can I go to outside this company to solve the problem?

To be in business people have to trust you to hold their money, in some cases a lot of money. You need to put the potential customers mind at ease.

Can you explain why the owners identify needs to be kept confidential? Who poses a risk to the owner? America's department of justice if you offer services to US residents? Someone else?

Basically, whats the story and can you say something to assure me that my money is safe with you?

What countries will you not accept customers from?

I posted in the other thread about them a while back, I've had no problems with them, they've been great for me and given me access to places I cant use normally in the UK like SBO for example. I've done big deposits and withdrawals, all processed within minutes.

Also for me, AC is very OK. Very fast deposits/withdrawals, very good support, also now they have mobile version of asianodds88.com. Until now, everything was good with them.

Thanks guys. Had a look at the AsianOdds demo account and it is ok for what I need. Just wanted to make sure they have a good reputation in the betting community as if I have a dispute with them over anything there is nobody to refer it to like I can with the major UK bookmakers and IBAS.

I did not deposit a penny to asianconnect/asianodds and have no plans to do it. One of reasons - they are accepting bitcoin.
It looks like brokers(agents) should not mix legal and semi-legal currencies inside one product.

Remember how vodds' company (ole group) tried to start accepting bitcoin in SBOBITCOIN/OLEBITCOIN9:
Quote:
OLEBITCOIN9 Guest
We are now offering Mollybet using bitcoin

The big question is WHY DID YOU REBRAND FROM THE SBOBITCOIN SCAM?
Don't get fooled by these scammers that are acting as [dishonest] agents of reputable brands, but will rob you at the first opportunity.


We switch our brand to Ole Bitcoin to avoid confusion to our customers as we are offering multiple bookmakers like Pinnacle, IBC, SBO and Matchbook.

I had no major problems with them too for 4 years (since I start using them). They are fast at deposit/withdraw. Only some minor problems like 50% reduced Pinnacle limits (thats why I use Pinnacle from other agent) and sometimes they are a bit late like 5-10 minutes at showing odds even bookies open them.

Other than these I am satisfied using them. I hope everything continue like this.

> They are fast at deposit/withdraw
You don't have to make transactions often if you're winner.

It's still no betfair in asianodds88. You lose better odds.

Pinnacle offers up to 140% of limit if you use them directly (brokers offer only 50% of original limit). And pinnacle has decent API despite all the brokers.

How do you get 140% limit from Pinnacle? I can only use 100% via API.

AsianConnect is not processing bank transfers at the moment because they are currently updating bank details. This explanation is vague. Does anyone have further information about what is happening?

AC - it would be good if you could post in this thread to explain/reassure customers. Thanks.

Good day!

This is to inform you that the bank suddenly terminated our account and we are working on getting a new bank account.
