Went in to check on my 'Bets' and it came up as "Sorry for the inconvenience but betfair is busy right now but our betfair tech ninja's are working hard to solve the problem"

ffs, coating it with ninja humour doesnt make it nay better betfair.

The Betfair Downtime message is even wrong FFS

Well, this is awkward.
The site is pretty busy at the moment, so we can sometimes struggle to update our bet results page. We've got a crack team of tech ninjas working on the problem right now, so suggest you check back in an hour or so


The tech ninjas are on crack

The website was wobbling from 2 pm through to 5 pm.

People were logged out at least 4 times and the site was unavailable to use at least 5 times today.

exactly @westender i wasnt able to cashout of my lay bet so doesnt matter if i placed the bet the feature theyve made avaliable was unavaliable to me as a customer, so here or there is a load of crap
Report Westender April 11, 2015 7:15 PM BST
It was exactly the same for the past 5 years on Grand National day and they fail to deal with the issue.

The Betfair Sportsbook website was always available today and the priorities are all wrong.

This give a clear message that they don't care about the Exchange or customers.

if any other company treated their customers like betfair they would have gone under many moons ago

The sad thing is the following:

1. It has happened every year for a number of years now on Grand national day and other large events.
2. Betfair Customer Service give the annual apology plus a pledge to get things right.
3. The customers know it is going to happen but Betfair either don't or don't care.
4. The same thing will happen this time next year.

We're really sorry, we know there are a few things going on with our website at the moment. Due to some work on our network, we're having intermittent issues which seem to be impacting how long it takes for our web pages to load.

Rest assured that we are working very hard to resolve this and get the site back to normal for you as soon as possible.


No prior warning to customers that there was to be work on the network and now the site is down.

Absolutely shocking customer service. Cry
Report gawdalmighty April 13, 2015 1:37 PM BST
There is obviously something more to it and they are not saying. They don't want to start a mass frenzy or worse still a mass-debate Wink on the issue.

But seriously, you can understand the site freezing due to the amounts of traffic it received on Grand National day but still site issues today? A bug or hacker has wormed its way into the system, me thinks.
