In the space of a week:

- settled Teahupoo as void bet
- decreased place terms because horses pulled up in the race
- verified a customers PayPal account but still only refunded his £30 stake instead of his £1100 winnings
- have asked for people’s income who won £32 from a £10 deposit
- have not paid out or banned hundreds of people
- have told someone they didn’t qualify for a free bet on a race you place a bet after 9am on because he logged in before 9am

This is the worst bookie and it’s not even close. Close your accounts ASAP

I have only had one betting account for the past 20 yrs or so, my sympathy for those being sucked in by these charlatans is dwindling, all you printed Chav was highly predictable imo.

Agree with Glasgow. Why people continually look for these shyster firms is beyond me but I'm sure there must be some daft reason for it all.

Possibly the 1st time I've ever defended a bookie but I opened an account with these in Dec..approx 800 up, no problems getting paid on any bets or any silly ID checks.

Didn't use them for Cheltenham so can't comment on how they did that week.

Why would a bet on Teahupoo be declared Void?

"If only they were licensed and regulated"

Is BetMGM illegal? If so, why is it on oddschecker?

I was being flippant/sarcastic imp123.

They are licensed and regulated.

Perhaps it will inspire the Racing Post will do us another article soon on the evilness and wickedness of the unlicensed and unregulated Black Market!

Ok 'The Management'. I think you're right. The Racing Post should do an expose' on the evilness and wickedness of the licensed and regulated bookies advertising on Oddschecker.

But, I firmly believe the Racing Post will not. These bookies pay their wages!

denise used to hand you 200 notes for opening an account.  easily turn that into 150 here. 

just keep opening accounts, 2 a day do you. nine grand a month.

there's something not quite right about the fact nobody involved has tried to draw a clear line between traditional betting (horses, dogs, football, tennis, rugby etc) which has been on the go legally since the 1960's under the auspices of gamblers anonymous - and this new fkng horrible crack
cocaine gambling, designed to get you addicted and designed to clean you out asap. clearly taking its toll on a lot of vulnerable people, making coates a million fkng quid a day (with a tiny percentage from horses and dogs, limited most traditional punters to buttons so can't win much, don't need to).

Paracetamol and Heroin are both drugs.  They're not bundled together and policed the same way.

if coates is winning a million a day, someones losing a million a day.

and they're not losing it on the fkng geegees or the dogs ...

she's done their homework for them, just ask her where that million is coming from every day and that should be the focus of any "affordability checks".

Why do they not ask for proof of identity to deposit and deposit and lose and lose but when you win and try to make a withdrawal they ask for more documents than you can think of.

No need to validate your account if you deposit and lose, only when you try to withdraw.

And I`m talking about them all. It`s not right you know!

I've had an account with them for a dew months with no problems.
I backed Teauptoo and that settled ok.
Having had accounts shut down or heavily restricted with most firms it's useful to have a functional account as the prices on here aren't always the best on here.
I'd imagine there were a fair few opportunists setting up accounts for Cheltenham as their bonuses were overly generous, the results weren't bookie friendly either.
Hardly surprising they shut some accounts.
I would agree the site is poorly laid out and they do seem to try to hook casino/slots addicts.

Report Storm Alert March 24, 2024 9:33 AM GMT
I opened an account for the Cheltenham offers and I have had no problems with settlements or withdrawing (£180 more than I deposited so far) all transactions via debit card.
The Cheltenham new account 6x £10 free bets and 1st race £20 free bets each day for all customers were excellent as were the daily enhanced prices bonus (up to 100%) which could be applied on any horse over Cheltenham.
The prices offered were fair and mostly better than Skybet & Betfair Sports.
The negatives are the site layout, the need to be vigilant to ensure bonuses are available to be applied and the fact that predictably it crashed on Tue shortly before the 1st race until after the Champion Hurdle and was very slow on Gold Cup day.

I do agree that the business model might be designed to convert sports punters into Casino addicts and therefore not suitable to anybody lacking rock solid discipline.

I had a very similar experience to Storm Alert.
Unlikely I will use the site again, unless they go a standout price.
Report impossible123 March 24, 2024 9:55 AM GMT
hulk23 (12:03am), a "business" entity will try and attract customers with a loss leader (item selling below cost of production). The bookies are no different; the loss leader is horseracing, fobt or crack cocaine is the guaranteed winner. But, the loss leader will be severely restricted or unavailable to some or most.

As such, the bookies will not want to separate horseracing and fobt (crack cocaine) citing this will affect horseracing levy, jobs, etc. A little bit of something good is still better than none at all of something good.

A radical reorganisation of betting and gaming sector led by a regulator with teeth (power) and knowledge but not by bookies is a must. The regulator must tell the bookies their policies must be adhered to (no further negotiation); dissenting bookies can leave the betting/gaming sector, and bar for 10 years (if so).

Return horseracing or any sport to their own community, supporters and players; fobt (crack cocaine) regulated sunder an entirely different set of policies and Gaming Act.
