woke up logged in to do Sat bets.

Account closed and told to withdraw funds. Cannot even do a 1p bet.

I dont Arb or anything.  Bets generally about £25 no more than say £80.

So say chelt festival every race on every day i would bet with them. So not shopping round for best prices.

Not made any profit for 12 months, or very marginal.

Been using them no issue for about 7/8 years. I made good amounts previously, up about £30k and never had any restrictions.

but now just account closed and have no idea why all of a sudden. No big wins, no unusual bets, nothing.

Have they had a big cull?

Amazing you lasted so long, you should be pleased.

I had a good run with them, for about 18 months I guess, but clipped about 3 years ago.

Nowhere to hide online, they know exactly what you are doing. It's relatively easy to see if you are able to take advantage.

thats the funny thing, i was up that much a year ago and never any restrictions.

thought i lasted as i didnt arb, and if i was backing say chelt festival, every race would be bet with them, shows not shopping around for half a point here and there.

last 12 months prob about £100 to £300 up, but no more and not in profit last month.

So was suprised, no big wins, no unusual bets, no betting a horse steamed in.

Just account closed and withdraw your money.

No idea what triggers it.

no, only used them.

reasoning if i only backed when best odds thought could be closed, so all betting was done there.

Plus rewards for racing points soon add up, got £520 worth as no racing in lockdown.

@maleuk01 -- have you asked Bet365 why?
Report maleuk01. April 24, 2021 8:51 PM BST
yeah, said "i regret to inform you that your account has been closed as a trading decision. I would advise you to withdraw the funds"

also "Our tading department reviews customer's accounts regularlyand sometimes conclude that they no longer wish to accept a custommer's business. ...... but essentially you can no longer use bet 356 i am afraid."
Report Ramruma April 24, 2021 8:59 PM BST
It seems odd. Either Bet365 is extremely trigger happy, or there is something OP has not told us, or Bet365 have got OP mixed up with someone else.

I don’t lose much, but I am not stupid.

Had marching orders from Bo***sports and Slagbrokes a few years ago.

It was brilliant 10 years ago, so just take it easy now.

I do agree though that the system is rife with corruption.

Rewards for racing points ? Wha is this ?
Report maleuk01. April 24, 2021 10:32 PM BST
used to pay for all 4 day's chelt tickets and the 3 day festival at the Dante meeting.

www.rewards4racing.com

its free

got £529 worth there as no racing for so long and no chelt festival for me prev year.

so thats a loss not getting the points from 356 as it was £20 a month, as thats the most you can earn.

Google rewards for racing.

No good for most on here though, as you’re all barred from participating bookies.

As I am a loser I have over £100 worth of free tickets.

Please don’t bully me for admitting to be not in profit, while all you clever clogs on here are serial winners.

I did post on another thread that I was restricted just after cheltenham for daring to have a few einners on their itv 4/1 offer. Actually when I say restricted, my email only mentioned  i would be barred from promotions such as 4/1 and BOG etc. I did message and ask why and was given the stock answer of accounts are reviewed on periodic basis, blah blah. However at the time I didn't seem to be restricted on stakes. I actually bet around £100 on various EW golf bets for US masters. My returns were around £37!! It was only whilst trying to beton Friday that I noticed trying to bet on an 11/2 shot (they were best price with their price promise for itv racing) my max stake was less than £5. And similarly other bets on any sports seemed to be restricted to a max win of about £25. I'm guessing in my original email it may have mentioned future stake restrictions too, but it is kind of annoying. I have been a losing pinter, albeit when I check my 12 month account history I am 300 up this last year. But that could all be put down to the cheltenham winners I had.....albeit I lost on here at cheltenham!!

Most ordinary people do not have fixed IP addresses, so that if Bet365 is stupid enough to use IP addresses to identify accounts, then it might be that they have conflated OP's account with some shark they want rid of.
Report Theoneandonly April 25, 2021 7:27 AM BST
Maybe they've had a strategy change and ban long term winning punters when they have had a bad month or 2. That way they dont get the bad PR by looking like they have just banned you when you have just had winning bets?

I lost all 6 of my 356 accounts on the same day, Royal Ascot 2008. All were 2+ years old, some were up, some were down, but all had similar sorts of bets. I used telephone only, not internet, always withheld my phone number and even did different voices for the different accounts (age ranges 19-65), and asked the missus to ring up for the female ones. That was a very sad day.

About 3 years ago I opened an account with Geoff Ba#ks had 3 bets with him the got an email saying that they had monitored my bets and noticed that I was only betting with them when they were top price, as if I would be betting with then at bottom price. Wonder what his father the legend John Ba#ks used to tell his workmen on course when he was edging a bet, don't think he would have told them don't take top price.

No idea lead on. It just pops up in messages and says "£10 free credit". I've had about 3 of them (seems to be every quarter).

I reckon i'm going to be on thin ice with them if I land another multiple since it's in profit by a few hundred Shocked

the "rivalry" is between the bookies & anyone who has a clue. it's in their combined interest to share the information & it would be impossible to prove unless they were exceptionally careless.
