    I do not get why so many people like SBOBET

    It seems like a typical Euro style book with no special software

    I like the simplicity and usability of the site. When you're logged in SBO looks like this: http://i51.tinypic.com/2l90hfn.png

    I did not have to make a single click and can instantly place a bet. On most other sites you have to click 3 or 4 times (soccer > league > game > market for example) and deal with their sluggish and slow softwares. SBO is fast and simple and if you want to bet Asian handicaps and Over/Unders you can't really ask for a much better site/software.

    euro books is good for live betting,but most of them limit winning players.some of euro bookies offer 100% bonus,but smaller amounts,us bookies better for high stakers wth their 500$ bonus,just that bonusses is small as 20%

    no better than all those Euro books

    one of the first ones I was forced to close due to severe limiting

    (assuming you mean Centrebet)

    Is Center bet really that bad? I was under the impression that they are better than William Hill and others. I could be wrong here cause time has gone by. Seems to me that all the UK books are sick with "winners paranoia"

    SOFTWARE GARBAGE

    One can probably live with a lousy software and high limits provided that book does not limit you to nothing after couple of wins. If they do that , they are worthless as a book, so fuk them!

    yes, and unfortunately that UK disease has spread to Australia and Centrebet were proving just a waste of time with the delay crap followed by rejected or drastically cut stakes every time I tried to bet so I told them where to shove their account. They also refused to let me bet at all on their "best of best" racing product.

    I must say however that over several years prior to them contracting that disease they were an excellent book and I made very good money from them, particularly on tennis. But times have changed.
