    If Bookies Ban You for Winning

    If bookies ban you for winning consistently, are they usually permanent bans?

    Has anyone here ever been banned from so many bookies that they are out of options to place bets?

    How much do you need to win in order to be banned?

    Any advice on how to avoid being banned by the bookies?

    Very few people get banned for winning fair and square.

    People who get banned are trying to take a cheap shot at the books. (bad line, arbitrage, bonus whoring, etc)

    These mofos won't admit it of course, but claim they got banned only because they're some sharp bettor.

    Arbing is a not a cheap shot it’s basic math

    Bonus whoring is not a cheap shot either

    Only tinpot books punish people for simply winning.

    Stick to the well known operators and worst that will happen is limit reduction or trader referrral.

    This is actually a very good point. The BEST odds-maker builds "the sharp" into their odds model.

    If Handicapper A is deemed sharp and sends in a play for $XXX, adjust the line Y-cents. I wonder if they do it on the SQUARE side, too.

    Problem is that a square goes busto too quickly. They don't stay in action too long. "A fool and his money quickly part ways."

    There's a lot more going on, but the answer to your question is yes. If you were banned or limited, it was for a reason and I've never heard of a book reversing this. Move on to the next one.

    I was thinking of opening an account at one or two books.
    I read online that they often ban or reduce limits if you win.
    I figured I would ask here and see what the consensus was.

    If you are of the mind of thinking of opening one or two accounts, reducing limits due to winning should be the last of your worries. If you aren't opening scores of accounts, you aren't winning in the manner or amount that most books care about.

    Don't worry about it.

    Same deal and I only racked up a bonus they gave me one time and have given almost all back. William Hill limited me and then has the worst delay on live bets so I said fukk it.

    understood.

    all you can do is play normal and let things sort themselves out in my opinion. if you get limited and play normal, just move on.

    Curious on your opinion. I read online that you should take bonuses in order to "not make the book think you are a professional gambler."
    The article suggested if you refuse to take bonuses, that raises a red flag for them. I personally don't care for the bonuses based on the rollover requirements.

    If I refuse to take the signup bonus, in your view, will I be targeted as a "professional gambler"?

    So most have risk free 1st bet…I know you probably hit 100% of your picks but sure tell them when you lose your bet that you don’t want there bonus that has no rollover or 1x…I don’t know if your trying to clown people or your just that naive…unbelievable some people

    i would be a millionaire if it was not for restrictions and offshore accounts. I live in Florida and i had a GREAT local for 2 years. I was up on him prob 30-40k and he shut my acct down and RAN after i had not made a deposit in over a year with him! If you play with house money you have to be VERY careful. As i said i have been shut down 7 times now!
