How the heads of this organisation can continue to throw out the same statement about how ye are improving things is disgraceful.
The website and app are an absolute disgrace. Practically unuseable.

The website is bad, but the promotion of the sportsbook over the exchange means that not only is liquidity suffering but there are also markets without any offers whatsoever!

cant do lay acca,s n more. closest thing to it it double chance(sportsbook effort) with sh itty odds

the exchange is dead outside of live matches. may as well get rid of 90% of the markets.
Report YOMOMMA August 8, 2015 6:58 PM BST
Yes they have ruined it and plus there are bots everywhere. They aren't stupid otherwise the share price wouldn't be at a high so I can only suggest it's been done to transfer as much of the exchange business to the sportsbook as they can.

Trouble is that no-one can get on the Sportsbook..

I used to bet thousands (and lose) on the exchange but have given up...

Might even get a job after 12 years just for something to do..

If anyone sees any vacancies for Brain Surgeons pm me.

I am fascinated by these stories of only being able to put 25 p on a bet on sports book
the stuff i go on the prices are carp so i dont bother but is it true you can only put pence on??
Report homefortea August 8, 2015 9:27 PM BST
mobo it is..

I must have lost tens of thousands of pounds on the exchange and yet won hundreds of thousands with the alleged "Bookmakers".....

And yet after a few bets on the betfair "Sportsbook" I am limited to a max of £2.50 per bet aka nobet£3.65....

The alleged "Bookmakers" exchange information and when it does come into the general domain the compensation claims will outdo what has happened with the Banks mis-selling..

I have saved every email and believe me it is a mighty tome..

The Data Protection Act will take a bashing..

the whole site is now a pile of sh!te and they are also taking the p!ss - On my way to the match I wanted a 1st g/s bet and for some reason my phone defaults to the sportsbook so because I was running out of time and its difficult to always get a signal I tried to have £10 @ 12/1 and was told max bet 4.25. I managed to get on to the exchange and there was plenty available at 17's - why the fcuk would they limit me then on the sportsbook ?

The new site is definitely reducing my time on betfair - its almost now a last resort as opposed to always being the 1st port of call

I don't use the site itself, but use API. I only use two pages - the front page and my account pages. Every time I open the tab with either of them in, the page is paused for several seconds - they are the only pages on my entire browsing history that do this.

You don't need to go to another country to use old site. All you need to do is click on an Australian market and you'll be taken to old site, if you then try to click on a UK wallet market you'll be diverted back to new site.

Anyway, apparently old site will be switched off completely in Australia too within the next few months, so that'll be the end of any workarounds that might be out there

Badly designed and unusably broken.

Only positive I can find is the amounts matched can be seen on in-play

i find the in play platform lately to be hard to get to operate properly, im in nz and cant bet live on the sportsbook, sometimes i like to take accas for another goal in several matches, very handy when mass number of games on at same time , either in one comp or just any a mixture,william hill have their in play setup pretty good for that, the mobile site is just average, works ok sometime, sometimes you cant even find your bets in the history from the sportsbook, so many things that are average.....even no score or timer for rugby union or league matches so mamy things fairly average here.

ladbrokes have a new in play desktop platform, i use to get logged out almost instantly, its actually a reasonable setup but gee logging in every thirty seconds is a pain, i would say though , it was like that a week or two back, aint been there lately, maybe its got better.

Report mikenz August 13, 2015 11:26 AM BST
And another thing is the live video of matches, based on my location i cant watch them, so i just watch them on our local bet shop instead so no actual restriction on those matches in nz
