A CentreBet (SBR rating B+) wagering complaint has been reported. Centrebet put up a home-away line for Primera Liga for all games played from September 21st-23rd. Originally, this wager had a handicap of home team -9 goals for 10 games. On the first day, the home teams outscored the visitors by 8 goals in 3 games. In the remaining 7 games, the home teams had a total handicap of approximately 7 goals. On Wednesday September 22nd, the fair handicap for the Primera Liga would be about -15 goals. The player bet into an obviously bad line of -9 goals (the opening line). Centrebet then claimed this was a "live line", which reflected the goals scored already.
When the player presented the odds of the remaining games which demonstrated the -9 handicap was either a bad line or a past-post, Centrebet stated the following:
Centrebet: [quote]We opened this market knowing that some games had already been played at the price listed.
The handicap of -9.0 did take the other games played into consideration...I’ve been advised that our head of Sports Bookmaking will not enter into any further correspondence regarding this matter and the player was previously advised of the same.[/quote]
Players are advised not to bet into obviously bad lines or past-post sportsbooks, as this allows the possibility that a sportsbook honors the wager if it loses, or void it if it wins.

CentreBet (SBR rating B+) refuses to honor a sign-up bonus. In late August, a player opened a new account with CentreBet after viewing an attractive bonus offering. The offer required that the player deposit and make one wager. After the 1st wager, the player was to receive a free bet in the amount of his initial wager (up to £40). The player proceeded to deposit and make a wager of £40, however CentreBet declined to offer the bonus. Per the player, CentreBet insisted that player needed to click on a special link to redeem the offer as well as use a promotion code. SBR reviewed the promotional page offering the bonus and found that the only requirement was that a code must be entered (which was done). SBR is discussing this bonus dispute with CentreBet.
