Well Sportingbet has not closed my account yet, but they put a limit on me of 18 euro per bet. I have no idea why, because I'm not exactly a big fish. I do have a winning record there, but it's nothing compared to pro gamblers.

I won't miss their customer service (simply because it's non-existing, they never respond to emails), but I will miss their cycling offers. So beware...

That is ugly from them. I was using sportingbet before a friend told me for Betfair's exchange. All I see in sportingbet is fixed odds- like 1.75 for the firsrt player and 1.85 for the second. You cant win money from odds like this. In the long term sportingbet always wins. In Betfair is different, people offer the odds and the odds are so much better, especially when in live play where you can dsometimes catch odds over @15

Re: Online sportsbook member reviews

sportingbet have always been a tight ass bookie. if you have a winning record against them, they will limit you. even if its an average winning record, doesnt have to be PRO.

Well limiting stakes is nothing new with a lot of the books like Billyhills, bet365 laddies etc

Re: Online sportsbook member reviews

WH's new football layout is really fucking me off. You don't even have the option of an overview as you have with the other sports. Pathetic.

Re: Online sportsbook member reviews

Just joined bwin today and I was very impressed. The livestreaming is awesome because you actually get coverage of the 1st and 2nd courts even in MM tournaments like Kitzbuhel. And it's great to be able to bet on each individual game in a match and loads of other various statistics. Got to be the best bookmaker for tennis I've seen.

But Betfair still has the best odds and the better Live Stream quality for the matches they show (probably not as many as bwin).

Re: Online sportsbook member reviews

Just an update here - bet365 have really revamped their website over the past week and now offering a wide variety of streaming of live events across many sports, including tennis.

I'm not a fan of the actual book itself given the way they ridiculously limit stakes after a few winning bets but definitely useful going forward just for their streaming offered.

Re: Online sportsbook member reviews

just realize i posted this question in the wrong thread before. moved...

in regards to centrebet...if a particular market didnt get enough action and someone places a big stake, they would limit their stake right?

Re: Online sportsbook member reviews

I'm loving live betting, going through a patch where I've had more than is normally the case.
xcrap yes they will limit u particularly If two factors are the case 1) You have a winning record with them 2) As u say If it is a market with a low turnover.

Re: Online sportsbook member reviews

For UK users of Hills, they have been offering Bet live TV which is pretty good. Much the same as the other betting streams on offer.

Seems like the trend which is great for users. I recently closed down my hills account but if the stream is quality may reopen just for this.

Mind you I have a bwin and bet365 account but have not placed a bet in either of these books ever

Re: Online sportsbook member reviews
