    Williamhill reducing limits after winning?

    Hello
    I don't normally post. Long time follower. I recently went on a little run the past 2 weeks on Williamhill. Deposited $200 ran it up to about $6000. Cashed out a couple times, no problems. Just the general copy of documents, selfie with documents, more documents. Once everything was approved I had no problems with withdraws. Great turn around of 12-14 hours. My normal bets were $200-400, max I bet was $900. Once I really started winning they capped my bets at $20-$50. Is this normal procedure? I called and took out the rest of my money so hopefully it comes no problem. Just would like to hear other experiences. I bet on everything. Mostly tennis and baseball and basketball. Thanks

    You should get the rest of the money no problem. And yes this is a semi common occurence.

    Ok thanks. I use many other books but have never experienced this before.

    It doesn't sound like you would meet the normal profile of someone they would want to collar. Probably just an over zealous trader who saw you hit a slow moving price or a couple of sharp looking bets and imposed the limit.

    Would not be at all concerned about being paid.

    The funny part is I lost today. Ended up down $1100 before I cashed out. I noticed they limited right after I made the $900 bet that lost. Also do they ever raise the limits again or once it's set its done?

    Can't hurt to ask but it's pretty much forever usually.

    Crap, i liked that site. Very good in play options. They said I could play their casino and other games with no limits of course. Just not sports. Oh well. Thanks for your input.

    We have a short article here talking about why books limit players http://www.sportsbookreview.com/sbr-...winning-50086/

    Might help you to avoid it in future.

    Just wanted to say I did get my money no problems. Still a decent book in my eyes just was unfortunate to get capped. Thanks

    In Vegas Will Hill gives sharps 10% their normal limits on their app.

    If you attempt to bet a side in a non-USA sport one of 3 things will happen...

    1) Approved within 30 seconds (usually means Nick is working)
    2) Bet is rejected, they then offer a buy back on the other side or .05 cents from a buy back (old Leroy's guys)
    3) They sit in purgatory for 5+ minutes before resorting to step 2

    The bets seem reasonable I don't know why they would cut your limit

    No surprise that their reducing limits. Williamhill are awful / No bookmaker like them welcome winning gamblers. Do you no how to 'lay' on Betfair ? Use google and find out how you can stop them reducing you by backing and laying once you go on a nice run like you have.
