This year has been a very testing time for me with Bookmakers and I will explain more shortly but we all need Bookies and they need to in turn need to treat us properly… with decency, respect and just be fair. That’s all most of us ask.
We need to also be very careful with whom we bet and spread our bets around if possible. You see at the end of the day the bookies accept bets but moan and groan if a customer backs too many winning bets but there is nothing in the rules to say… “if you win we may close, refuse your bets or limit your bets”.
I have accounts with 17 bookmakers and at the start of this year, 2016, I had 20 bookmaker accounts. Three bookies have this year closed my accounts because I was winning on a regular basis from them. Unfortunately I cannot disclose the names of these bookies but I will explain what happened. Let’s call them Bookie A, B, C.
Bookie A I opened my account in January and place a £50 each way bet at 5/1 which won returning £400 and making a profit of £300. As a new customer I placed a free £30 introductory bet which lost. My next bet with bookie A was two weeks later when I had £650 win at 8/13 which won returning a clear profit of £400. The problem then started as I asked for £700 at 4/7… bookie A refused the bet but offered to take £70 from me at 4/7… I declined the bet. Two weeks later I asked for £300 at 4/6 which they offered to take £60 at 4/6… I declined. The staff at bookie A said it was a traders decision but these are bookmakers listed alongside others on Oddschecker… couldn’t believe it. I suggested to their customer services perhaps I ought to close the account… to my amazement they said “fine” and closed it instantly.
Bookie B I opened just before Christmas last year and my first bet of £1,000 at 5/4 won being heavily gambled into 1-2 on. It won and then a few weeks later I asked Bookie B for £7,000 to win at odds of 1/7… guess what? They turned the bet down with no offer of a reduced stake. My next attempt was £300 each way at 6/1 when they offered me £10 each way at 6/1… wow… I refused that bet. I then asked for £3300 at 4/11… refused point blank… “sorry sir traders do not wish to accept this bet”… I closed this account as well.
The biscuit came with Bookie C… I have had this account for a number of years but in the last 18 months things have been going well. I tried a few bets with them which were halved or even offered to accept at a lower price… all efforts to get me to NOT bet with Bookie C! The final straw for me came this last week when a horse I was interested in I had backed elsewhere £300 each way at 9/2 best odds guaranteed… bookie C offered EVENS for a place so the £500 place only bet was accepted. Then the operator got my £500 deposit approved at the bank before telling me the ttraders would only accept £250 and they said they were concerned about my level of gambling!!! What they should have said was they were concerned about my level of winning. They put a person on asking if I had a problem with gambling AND would not take any notice of my telling them I do this professionally for a living. The questions continued, continued and continued… I asked… “Do you want me to close my account?”… the operator said “hold on sir I will put you through to that department”… I think this was a designed effort on Bookie C to get my account closed… at all costs.
So please beware and open as many accounts as you need. As far as winning is concerned let’s do it… I hate losing… don’t you? This month my service High Roller Racing has been doing quite well and we are, as I write, showing a profit for April of 21.47 points or in pounds sterling £2,147 if you backed all selections to £100 per point as advised. So it is worth your while giving a proven profit making service your choice.
