    Sbobet is dead?

    Today I discovered that I can only place 100 usd on the markets where I was able to place around 400 usd a few days ago.All small markets have been affected. Bet max is 4-5 times smaller now than a few days ago. What the f**k happened to sbobet? It seems I am not the only one whose limits have been slashed. So they don't want to be a top book any more.

    It's a general trend. IBC/MAX and Pinnacle cut the limits, too. Especially smaller markets affected.

    But SBO and IBC limits are ridiculous on some markets, I agree. For instance, New Zealand Premier League early market (which actually is the matchday) only two figures at SBO

    I guess the sharp money/square money ratio increased over the years.

    Market is getting smarter. Bots, AI, machine learning is a factor.

    20 usd on handball markets. They'd better not offer those markets at all rather than offering them with 20 usd limits.
    By the way not only small markets have been affected. Top markets have been affected too.

    On Soccer Asian Handicap bet limits are much higher in comparison to other. That is good for me at least.

    In comparison to what? Are you talking about asian handicap on big markets? Because asian handicap limits on small markets are ridiculous. As I said before 100 usd instead of 300-500 usd they offered a few days ago.

    Today I discovered that I could bet less than 20 euros in minor leagues (Chinese basketball). At this point on sbobet it is impossible to bet

    Exchange or even pari mutual style esp if they offered USA tracks would be great...SBO had offerd many of the non exchange tracks like gulfstreem and Santa Anita But now gone and only have UK

    Good time to email them about it if you are interested.

    I don't bet horses so didnt have much to say about it.

    They are probably talking about Citibet, which is not really a traditional exchange. I never completely figured out how they work, it has something to do with a rebate you negotiate, but you are never sure what the exact payout or losses will be before a race.

    One of the reasons, I doubt the main reason for SBO reducing max. stakes. On AO their max bets were at 66$. It's becoming harder and harder for bookies to be sharp enough.

    I found out that sometimes they dont even provide parlay/accumulator for tennis... and the max limit will be less than $100 for a single bet of 1.20 odds.

    yeah, it's probably more likely that they reduce limits because they don't make any profit with it anyway

    To me itīs been like that since I know it. SBOBET is a great place to bet soccer. But for smaller markets I donīt even look at them.

    On sbobet you can not even bet on football ..... Yesterday I tried to bet the English premier league, and did not accept more than € 1500 (for odds @ 1,3) ...... Much better exchange or pinnacle on the premiere league

    Is Sbobet any good anyway? Everytime I checked, their odds seemed to be less competitive than Pinnacle and the likes.

    This is because SBOBET offer four free wire withdrawal per month whereas Pinny offer one, and right now none for certain users.
    But even so sbobet max limit in tennis* is very low compared to pinny... like you cant even make a good profit...

    this is obviously not true, it just depends on which sport you're looking at. The limits in soccer are on the same level as Pinnacle, and odds are often better.

    For me sbobet soccer limits are always lower than pinnacle. Never once I witnessed that sbobet limits were higher than pinnacle on any soccer game

    Sbobet is now like so many other junk bookmakers. For today's Champions League game Ajax -vs- Real Madrid the winning Real Madrid odds excluding extra time and penalties are:Sbobet @ 2.03 bet max € 947 Pinnacle @ 2.03 bet max 8852 €. Instead for asian handicap -0.5 Sbobet @ 2.04 bet max 3600 €. Pinnacle @ 2.03 bet max 26556 €. My accounts are without agents

    Until today I rarely bet on sbobet. If they still reduce the limits, I will not bet on sbobet anymore.
