    Yeas indeed, they will take as much as 6000 EUR from me on almost any market. Unfortunately the odds shouldn't be above 1.001 in that case.

    Yes they do. Even weird sports like handball where Pinny limits bets at $25, you can bet a few hundred on 365. I'm pretty sure they will limit the hell outta you if you do well on those though.

    I think that rather than quoting how much stake they will let you bet it would be better to compare how much they will stand you to win as it seemed to me when last able to play there that was how they were setting my stake limits.

    They'll only keep taking the bets if you lose.

    Not necessarily true. The chap I mentioned before has been winning there for years and hasn't been restricted.

    Not sure what the secret is.

    I bet 5k + on b365 daily (single bets) and have been using them for years without being limited. Great book if you know how to use them. Strangest thing I ever encountered was paddypower, placed one small bet which lost, and got limited to 1 or somehting dumb - can only assume my name is on some type of list.

    If you compare all the books Bet365 is right up there as a high limit book

    Its does sound strange though because we here guys having small limits

    Sorry, you must be a high steak player than and nobody can understand what are you saying. I am betting at bet365 for 8 years and I don't see any big changes in betting limits, prematch or live. For majority of sports they are high and for some sports you wouldn't expect, they are actually huge. So, what is the big news?

    From my perspective baseball is weird sport, not handball. And in handball live betting they will let you win 2400 euros on handicap and 1200 euros on totals. No one can match that, even close, only Ladbrokes maybe, but I will like to so can anyone bet live on that sport for one week and still not receive a limit.

    It's not a claim. It's the truth. Bet things they don't like and it happens.

    Many people bet for years without limits or just with small adjustments

    I think many people lie about having limits cut real small or they took shots at the book with bad lines

    There is more that meets the eye with posters on the forum and off the forum

    You don't have to win to be limited there. They will cut people from certain countries even for making bets at market odds.

    I'm sure some do. But I know I'm not and I didn't even win money on the bet type I was limited on. Now I'm smarter about my bets with them. Live and learn.

    Yeah that's what happened to me. The worst part is that these Euro books don't explain anything to you so you have to figure out the reason for yourself. They just cut and paste the same standard answer over and over.

    Some romanian people once asked me to place bets for them on Romanian football games via b365. It was set up through a third party like it was some gangster shit. Turned out it was about 3,000$ and I just laughed and declined. So yes bet types/countires would make a difference and rightly so. And why should bookies explain to people why they can't bet when they identify very high risk areas for them. I'm sure some people get catogorised wrongly but thats a different story. So many scum bag shits about you can't blame an organisation to take steps to protect themselves.

    It could be territorial as far as cutting limits

    Sportsbet.AU takes small limits from UK residents but Aussie residents can bet much more on many events

    You can demand a Subject Access Request under 1998 Data Protection Act to find out all info they are holding on you. I did it with one book but they stonewalled me with name rank and serial number. Couldn't be bothered taking it any further with the Information Commissioner because I knew they'd never take a bet again anyway.

    I don't get why would someone lie about getting limited, what's there to gain. I got limited to 6-24 EUR max winnings after about a month of betting there. My biggest bet was about 600 and average about 100-200 EUR, and i was only a few hundreds in profit when i got limited (and didn't make any withdrawals). The only 2 reasons for getting limited i can think of are my country of origin (territorial discrimination) or taking only the bets where they have the best price on the market (and we're not talking bad lines here, i rarely even see them on bet365 )(but c'mon who doesn't do that, you got to take the best price on the market if you wanna give yourself a chance of some profit, it's hard enough this way ). It could be that i wouldn't be limited if i took @1.50 prices when the market average was @1.70 but is it worth having an account there if that's the only way i can bet.

    I have been making a good solid profit from bet365 for years now, and I'm not limited.
    And I'm a high staker. So I don't see why they would limit anybody, unless you're making maybe 10000$ a month or something.

    Most people will lean toward that opinion which chimes in with their own personal experience. For me, that is the one aligned to the epithet Bet3.65

    what is this bullshit, JJ you are a legend.
    3.65 is a legend too, well known for limiting to pennies.

    JJ don't change the basics, or we fire you.
