a few years ago, when in an internet cafe, it was a good option as you don't want strangers glancing and seeing how much the balance is !

What the hell? Absolutely ridiculous - if I have a big day I like to keep it hidden  as to avoid you know, going on tilt - safer gambling my arse.

exactly, it's the oppposite of safer gambling. problem gamblers are less likely to hide their balance. it's a tool good traders use to not get obsessed with outcome

Is it really to do with "safe gambling"???   Ridiculous if it is.

I now have a rectangular bit of blu-tack stuck the screen.... ffs

same, albeit a bit of white paper sellotaped.
it's one of those decisions they haven't thought about, it's like a governmental decision, oh it will help problem gamblers- how exactly?
it's mostly the pros who have it hidden

helpdesk are saying it's nothing to do with safer gambling but a web developer issue, could be a glitch, getting back to me

Good Afternoon, the option is currently available on the app, however, it has been removed from the website. Apologies.




Why does it always feel like im talking to a bot.

this is bloody typical of BF upgrades.  They roll 'em out... wait for us to test them... and then they roll 'em back.  Been going on for decades.

still on the app but removed from website, no apparent reasoning behind it, just a Big Brother thing, Betfair wanting to control everything
By:

When: 02 May 22 12:53
when you say "feature removed" betting_masta - is that the reply from the helpdesk???

did you ask them why it's still an option available on the app???
By:
betting_masta
When: 02 May 22 12:53
it's being removed from all platforms apparently in the coming weeks

"It has been removed to be in compliance with new rulings brought in regarding gambling sites in the UK & Ireland"

Gone for me too, you can manually block the balance with an adblocker though and that's what I've done.

Dont think thatll be popular, know a couple that like to bet at BFSP, purposefully not tune into any racing, sometimes leaving RacingUK recorded on SkyGo for days on end, hiding balance until watched, bla. Sounds like a poor idea to me but if you think how much time you can save whilst they f around at the start it does sound more appealing.

What is difficult about adding it via a different dropdown menu.

good thinking CC.

When: 02 May 22 13:01
I use the "alternative colour scheme" on the website and have never seen this option before.  Can someone please tell me where that hide option was located.
By:
CustomCut
When: 02 May 22 13:02
My adblocker is called adblock, install it free and it gives an option on the toolbar to hide something on this page, and just click on the part of the page that shows the balance.
By:

When: 02 May 22 13:02
I think it was when you click the arrow next to balance there was a Hide Balance option

Who's a clever bear CustomCut Love

Yep, it works, and if want to see your balance you can have another window open for Account/MyBest/etc and it's still visible there.


... and breathe....

Ok, just in time to start making [lots of] money

Thank you, but never seen it before.

Sparrow, maybe you didn't see it because your balance was just too big to fit on the screen??

Presumably from a "Responsible Gambling" perspective - they are still working on the option to "hide" the Casino, Slots, Live Casino, Exchange Games Bingo and Virtual Sports? Laugh

I like your style TM :)

Though TBF it does sort-of exist - I permanently self-excluded from everything apart from sports betting when I first opened my account (not that I don't trust myself, more a damage-limitation in case of my account being hacked in the days before 2FA).

I might have to ask them to make the 'Deposit' button smaller if I go through the £1m barrier....
