    bet365 is a very schizophrenic book.

    There is nothing you can do

    Cris have cut my limits to 250 on everything but due to their comically crap software this in reality is 100 for some reason,I like most people am also off their bonus program.
    They are not much better than Bet365 imo.

    Any book will take all of your money if you agree that you will bet on any match they offer, one side or another. If you can be selective on what you want to bet, why can't a bookie decide what kind of action they want? It's them accepting the bets, not you. You are free to open your own sportsbook company and offer 10000 bets there, accepting everything they throw at you...

    Think about it a little bit guys... I will offer you to take ANY kind of money you want to bet, but you will HAVE to bet on one side. I will decide the odds later, I can only guarantee good margin. How does that sound to you? Fair or not fair? People saying that bookies should accept every bet, are in my opinion silly and irrational. There is no such bookie in the world and there will never be one.

    They are rated based on the complaints they receive, plus for top grade (A) you need to pay. I know that many people try to blackmail companies with their baseless cases by claiming they will "complain to SBR." Serious companies will of course not let themselves being blackmailed and after couple of such complaints SBR rating drops. Also the problem is, that SBR doesn't receive much positive reviews for non US companies, only negative. So it is hard to get ratings raised, but easy to drop.

    I don't think anyone rational gives much credibility to any ratings online. Most companies take SBR less and less seriously, especially when they see ratings anomalies, like you are describing, and especially if they know what the price of "A" is. Best to ask punters on forums like this one directly and disregard pinnacle fans. Don't get me wrong, I bet on Pinnacle as well, but there is time and place for Pinnacle and there is time and place to bet elsewhere.

    well monk you see the thing is, its ok to choose which bets they want to take, but its not ok to treat you like dirt


    they offer this guy a bonus to deposit with them, he does deposit but they put a rollover on his money, before he is even near to completing it, they limit him so much that it is impossible to meet the rollover so his money is stuck somewhere where he cant withdraw it or bet with it, that is also know as stealing to those of us which has common sense

    also, the bookmakers premise to attract business is that he gives you a chance to make a profit, if they keep you as a customer as long as you are losing, but as soon as you win a bet they show you the door, then that is a pure scam, a bait and switch, securing customers under false pretences and they should be closed down

    i dont understand people that advocate the books

    SBR should have a rule:

    Any book that limits players cannot be rated A- or higher.

    Absolutely. There is not even a question about this. I respect limits, that's absolutely normal. PERSONAL limits, are a disgrace and a total joke. Period.
