worst thing is I am in the middle of an offer. they advertised that if you put a £20 bet on the 4 Saturdays on the run up to Cheltenham they would give you a free £20 each of the 4 days of the festival.

they ceased to be a bookie long ago
Report kevinglass February 26, 2016 2:08 PM GMT
They'll probably not give you the £20's for Cheltenham now, so I wouldn't bother with the £20's on Saturdays.....Best to check on their live chat or similar, at least, before you try to jump through hoops to get it, and then find you can't even get the £20's on at Cheltenham because the stake is too big!

Its because they give all these stupid offers that they cant possibly make a book and lay a proper bet.

The last bet I had with Coral was in the 70s. I wanted £100 on a horse in the St Leger and they tried to split me. I put the bet on with the local independents. It was a loser and Crow won the race.

there is a trick with joe,ask for 500 on a horse and they will take 250,ask for 100 and they will take 50 ,so the trick is to ask for double the amount that you really want to place on the horse and they will cut it 50%.it keeps them happy ,and you will be happy.

In my case a lucky streak prompted a ' youre now a priority customer email'.TWo days later i noticed online i was limited to zero on all sports and racing events, though i'm now pestered by casino emails.When i phoned to check i was told i wasn't barred or restricted, but simply limited ( to zero ).

First bookie ever to close me down, after laying me £50 @ 11/1 an elderly chaser called Impertain at Wetherby in Nov. 1990. Gary Lyons fell off the clear leader at the last, leaving Impertain to collect at an SP of 14/1.

The cheque arrived a fortnight later, along with the old "concerned about the nature of your business" letter.

betbright a couple of what seem years ago I was restricted to £0.00..

Funnily enough the clowns seemed to take three days to settle a bet manually and I did not complain when they gave me £800 extra on a bet when the horse in question finished second...Then they banned me for their mistake.

Have the clowns got a bet settling system because I know a few fellas that push one out on the machine for a non-existent £2 and then get their pals to have a bet at the inflated odds at BETNOTSOFECKINGBRIGHT...
