    Hey Guys... so is this all big hustle?

    Forgive me for starting a thread that's been started a million times I'm sure -- but is there an betting sites that aren't a god damn joke? The more I read, the more I find out every bloody place screws over it's players in one way or another...

    Bet365 (just gave myself away as an amateur) has locked my buddy's account, and I'm guessing will mine too... 4 days, turned $100 into 4.5K with Euro Basketball bets and handful of NFL and Soccer lines...

    Now all of a sudden, max is $3?... Are you kidding me?... OK, I'll go look around for another site... OH... they all screw you over like this.

    What the hell? Is there not a betting site you where you're NOT penalized for actually winning? I want to bet on Euro bball and can't find anything trust worthy sites...

    Would someone mind taking 5 minutes out there day to educate me here? I'm going to sift through the threads here, but I would appreciate some general enlightment on this thing called sports betting online.

    Cheers.

    That's what they do, son. It's the wild west, the books can do whatever they want. Bookmaker, Pinny and Dimes are probably the best about those things, but they will all limit you as well.

    EU is way worse.. I can bet 10 dollars at unibet, even less at 365 etc etc.

    Being from the EU all books do this, if you're able to play at bet365 then you should be playing at Pinnacle, Betfair these won't limit but don't offer as many lines as bet365

    Your dollar amounts aren't too crazy so I would recommend spreading yourself out a bit. You should definitely have an account at Pinnacle but you could, for example, have accounts at 5 Dimes, Heritage, Bookmaker, etc. Sure, places like 5 Dimes will eventually limit, but if you are in many places betting smaller, you can go unnoticed, especially with your dollar amounts.

    It can also be good idea to limit your withdrawals, don't make a lot of little ones over short time, this will annoy them and increase your chance of getting noticed.

    Good luck.

    thanks for the replies guys...

    After reading more last night - I have a better grasp of the overall "concept" of who/what these bookees are, and what's going to draw their attention in a way that inspires them turn away your business... I (ignorantly) figured it was governed/regulated in a way that they couldn't play "favorites". Whoops... So keep a "lo-pro" is the name of the game...

    Tell me this though -- Anyone know where i can bet on obscure euro/non-N.American basketball with the kind of lines that 365 has? I'm addicted to betting on these croatian/scandanavian/greek/etc bball games... quarter lines, race to 15, etc.

    That's just there to suck money from people with a problem, if your betting handball either 1) you actually know something about it and need to be limited before you find an edge or 2) You have an issue and like to bet shit and will just find something else to throw you money away on, so limiting dosn't matter

    So they attract you with big betting offer (handball water polo netball) and quickly limit evertyhing so you can only bet manchester united and roulette?

    They will only limit you if they think that you are capable of consistently beating them.

    I'm in a similar position as you cs I bet in small markets of soccer; Arabia Saudí, Qatar, regional divisions in germany, etc. Did you finally find any bookie similar to bet365 with small markets offer and which didn´t limit your stakes after a few winning bets?
