Default account restrictions

This thing with account restrictions really HAS to be addressed with legist ration to the highest degree, my God you are giving these people a law unto themselves, NO, they have to comply, they cannot be able to say we "only want LOSERS" they have to be accountable to "winners" AND losers, and of course make a profit between the two. .... YES I am talking out of my pocket, BUT guess what, ? it was a LOSING account...... think about it we need more legist ration!!

sorry I was a bit "loud" but I hold by everything I said, they are allowed to make a profit of course, but they should not have the right right to "ban" /restrict" anyone, only "get out of the business if they can't handle the heat"

Thanks Chrome, you know how it is. I am not a big player, really it's peanuts to them, that's what's so frustrating, if I was fleecing them for 10's of thousands, well yeah, but for little ol' me it's so laughable really! Make no mistake using one of their products (which they made available to me) I was able to gain a definite edge, but a VERY restricted edge, so they removed the product, Huh? so why offer the product in the first place?

Minium Bet Laws were brought in to help with this. But it only applies to racing and it is usually into terrible books.

Unfortunately any business can refuser to sell to you not just bookies and so making them have you as a client would be problematic and set a precedent for other businesses which isn't something the government is going to do.

take your cash and put it on betfair as at least you know you will be able to get on for as much as you want.

If you don't have an edge that works with betfair, then start looking. I have lots of them and they all work on betfair prices. I don't even bother with the bookies anymore.

Point taken UB, and of course nothing is going to change I know. It's just that as we all know; that License is basically a license to "print" and I believe that sets it aside from other businesses. What I was doing does actually work on BF, but alas the edge is tiny after comm. and involves a lot of time, but I might get to it when I've calmed down.

Hi, hadn't intended to make any addition to this post, but as there has been so many views I thought I might add something ironical, i.e. my edge with this saga did not involve any "profit" from the said " corporate" as I said it was a
losing account..... you figure??
