On our journey down to newcastle saturday we nipped into gosforth an had a bet on moneybox at newcastle. Cant get a bet on in edinburgh. Well i cant. 1 of the footsoldiers was in a shop in edinburgh. I had 1100/200 an 1000/200 × 2 gosforth and just round the corner from track. Whilst betting i was on the phone to our rep in edinburgh. whilst i was betting 5/1 it was 3/1 in edinburgh. This firm are now a laughing stock.At 1 time u could av wot u liked. Now on sky rpgtv if u want a single £100. A multiple bet they will call the police. Honestly. The magic sign. Do me a favour. Had a £40 yankee with them 6 weeks  ago. Just bin paid. 6 weeks waiting to be paid. Absolutely disgraceful behaviour. No explanation. No apology. Nothing. If ur avin a multiple with them be very careful. If u r winnings exceed a certain amount u may av to take them to court to get paid. Small claims deal with up to 5 grand. Ibas are up to 10 grand. Any more and they cannot guarantee u will be paid. The company then av the option to take u to court. I have just bin put through all this trying to get paid. Got the gambling comission involved n when this happened i got paid. Just mind how u go. As a sidenote moneybox lost.

edinburgh does seem to be a joke ph but nationwide they have got extremely defensive & cautious on the hotbox in the last year or so since ok corral took over

hills are the same, when they can be bothered to price it up that is

saw that ok corral fella on ATR forum a few weeks back, always thought he was a pr1ck but he's not, he's worse, he's a despicable scumbag who will gladly sit back and draw his salary while his firm does it all it can to shut down the clued up and leech off the vulnerable
