If you have a Connect Card they will go BOG all UK/Irish races from opening of shops from Mon. They offered BOG on selected meetings but not available until 1100 which was a farce as they clipped the odds at 1055!!!

A joke of a firm.

They had me on a silver VIP for a couple of months, then when realising they were mistaken, it wasn’t only stripped from me I was restricted to pennies, that’s a nice way to treat a VIP Love

get yourself into the shops on Monday and have a look at the nice outfits the staff will be wearing.
glad to say I know one guy who will still have a whistle on.

Their adverts reflect how low down the scale they are,their website is a poor affair as is ladcrooks and the rest of the so called Big 4.I have not been in a betting shop in the UK for years but I can claim to have invented the "Betting Shop" that never took a bet.

Whether social conscience or moral I still do not know but I refused to put my idea into action i.e shops with FOTBs and no intention to lay bets.

Why have others not followed? Hills in particular. Seems odd they must know that if a punter has a choice they will not be betting with them.

i was a manager for betfred and corals ,have no loyalty to both now but will admit corals far better company to work for and i had discretion to pay out bets up to 200 ,failing that the area manager very rarely said no to a query,as with betfred was impossible to get a bet paid out if there was a query

Its totally wrong that the shops dont provide the same offers in the shops that they do online for horseracing

I mean if you do business with a person or company shouldn't matter how you transact with them . They have been disrespecting their horse-racing betting customers for years because of these FOBT machines.....its too late now though imo to get any back ....10 years too late .

Makes you wonder though ....will we start seeing more movements than usual in the market just before the off i.e all horses that have been drifting throughout the day - i wouldn't be surprised if we did, but then again who has decent bets in any of their shops nowadays anyway.

Clare said it was the biggest offer ever to hit the High St bookmakers ...... yet independent firms have offered this concession for years without asking you for every detail under the sun.  One Ladbrokes manager told me that once you sign up to the Grid the firm know everything about you ..... and it actually lessens the chance of you getting a fair bet on with them........  L & C are con artists

But always be carful as agsin max pay out at bog is still a pitiful
Grand which is a joke ! Crazy

I hate this company BUT potentially a smart business move:

Recreational punters can place a bet and not have to worry about price (presuming no on course manipulation)

If I was doing a few quid here and there I wouldn’t be bothered about spending much time finding the right price so this would be high on my list of priorities?

If the idea of this DOESNT involve use of grid cards or whatever to “mark their card” it should be applauded - a step in the right direction. Wishful thinking but do you think this will lead to anyone going a step further and going BPG no electronic card? It must be possible if the independants can do it?

I had a connect card but got banned by Coral over a year ago now. They kept wanting more and more documents to prove who I was. In the end I ended up sending them 12 different documents in one email. After 5 minutes later I get an email from them. Thanking me for proving who I was but the decision has now been taken (within 5 minutes) that I was banned.

I got banned two days ago by William Hill. However only for their live casino. I contacted support and they informed me that if I wanted to play blackjack or roulette. I was to play in the casino. The computer generated one. Where I'm totally unrestricted. This just proves how **** the computer generated one is. How can I be banned from one but not the other? They're making it obvious.

It's not mathematically possible to get the edge over the house. So why I have I been banned?

Here's the email I got.

Gambling giant Betfred has handed a £10.2m payout to the family of betting magnate Fred Done, as the betting group prepares for widespread job cuts.

The bumper dividend comes after Done, who founded the chain with his brother Peter in 1967, warned he may have to axe up to 4,500 workers because of a government crackdown on fixed-odds betting terminals. Done and his brother, who are worth an estimated £1.4bn according to The Sunday Times Rich List, are smarting after a decision to cut maximum bets on the machines — blamed for problem gambling — from £100 to £2. The move will dent the profits of bookmakers and prompt sweeping closures across the high street.
