Clown research. It's like they were saying "according to our resarch, people don't like to win extra money."

Better off paying 2% commission on the exchange and bet your multi with someone who offers bog.

How it started

Double the odds one winner concession removed from Luckys

How it's going

B.O.G removed from multiple bets

What's Next?
Suspect it could be the double result concession on stewards enqs

I stand to be corrected here, and I hope I'm not putting more ideas into their heads, but wasn't it the case that if you opted for the 2% commission you lost the sportsbook concessions anyway?

I sacrificed BOG for 2% on the exchange a few years ago.

Most did saxon, so what is this costing them?

What do you get for the 5% reduction now?

It is either 2% or 8% with 10% of your losses back.

No brainer.

Take the 2% and do the multiples with Denise.

Yes, got the email this morning. Extensive customer research determined that customers would like less value! Pull the other one Betfair! Absolute disgrace. Where is the report of this research? I wasn't asked about it.

I acknowledge the above, but so far 3*5 have let me get on. I am a £5 to £100 merchant for recreation.

Several others won’t let me bet horses whatever. 

I am neither clever or shrewd.

INCORRECT - and GEORGE B, too .... as - so did I, allot for 2%  ... But, I have still had the email -

- despite NEVER having had a bet on the Sportsbook


What you 'sacrificed' - When allotting for 2% Commission - was the right to PROMOTIONS - Such as the  'Cash Races' etc - and NOT  'Concessions' on Sportsbook.

Onlooker is correct. If one opted in for 2% commission, then BOG on Sportsbook was withdrawn with immediate effect.

I didn't receive the email and can't find anything about this on the website. Not exactly notifying this change in plain sight is Betfair. I constructed a double multiple bet and sure enough the double bet does not have a BOG icon, where as the singles do. Admittedly I don't often do multiple bets on Betfair but not sure what I am getting for my 5% commission package nowadays.

ITV 3/1+ free bet is long gone?? Money back if horse goes odds-on in play and loses also long gone??

So if I go to the basic 2% plan all I am giving up is BOG on singles in the Sports bet and a £2 free accum bet if I have 20 qualifying bets on the exchange???

It's been clarified and anyone on the basic 2% can go to their accounts and see confirmed that if you are on this option, then you do not get BOG on Sportsbook.

So it was *YOU* who was *INCORRECT*. dc.

Yes - That is the situation NOW ... But has that ALWAYS been the case, though?

The email that we have all JUST received - apparently whether you do/or never have bet on Sportsbook is a NEW email.

It is NOT a 'Just a Reminder' email .

We NEVER received a 'BOG is being Withdrawn' email, or similar - when we signed up for 2% Commission - BUT ...

We Did then forfeit our right to PROMOTIONS such as 'Cash Race' etc... apparently misconstrued by some as being Concessions.

THAT was my original point - that appears to have been missed by many - and remains so.

If you signed up to it then it was made clear, which is why some us who rarely use Sportsbook remembered, and others who use Sportsbook regularly stated it.

But feel free to keep digging.

And here's a tip, in future before you start 'shouting' at people that they're "INCORRECT", perhaps you should try getting your facts straight first?

Well - I will "keep digging" - as you Never, ever,  fail to have a Blast at me - and many others, too, I has to be said  ... that being one of the reasons why I took a sabbatical from the Forum.

If it was -  " made clear" - 'when you signed up' ... and I do NOT have recollection of such (although, it May well have been) - But I DO have recollection of our PROMOTIONS Forfeit - tat being an entirely different element than Concessions.

Then Why the Need to send those who "signed up" an email NOW - saying that 'BOG is being withdrawn' ...

When/If we never had that facility in the first place - as you somewhat strongly intimate.

Surely that is an entirely logical both Valid question and observation.

Why the continued aggressive contention.

Then produce the "evidence" and let's have a discussion about it.

Who ya trying to kid?

Do you want me to help you out here? You took a "sabbatical" because you started a despicable thread about female jockeys. Do you want me to bring it back to the top?

Had a look George but couldn't find anything in my spam folder. tbh not bothering with Betfair Sports very often as this betboost shyte seems to result in the prices always being lower than Bet365 or even Skybet on occasions. Just very occasionally betboost makes a difference but then £25 max kicks in. It's hardly worth the effort of looking. I should just set commission to 2% and be done with it.
