    BOL reducing [Germany] live limits to just $250 on all events?

    Hello,

    Since today the live betting limits on the big markets (handicap, total and game winner) have slashed from the usual $1000 per wager to now $250. Not just for one particular game, but for all MLB games and even on the NBA game today!
    This is not an individual limit just for me, cause I already asked a friend and he has the same limits since today.

    Do you guys have this too since today? Or could it be country related?

    My max live bet on Lakers Rockets right now is $1,000. You and your friend have been cut.

    I'm still at 1000 and I bet live regularly. We can usually figure this out within 2 questions:

    1. What country are you from?(If shady eastern euro country, this could be it)
    2. Are you hitting live lines right after events happen but before the book can move the line?(If yes, this is your answer)

    I'd lay 100:1 it's one of these two

    Wow I live in Germany too, so they must have decided all Europeans get $250 limits all of a sudden?
    Or did you get slashed for other reasons? Was your limit the same yesterday or was it still $1000 yesterday?

    Btw $275 I guess is what you can risk at -110? So that the max win is still $250

    Oh, okay. Yeah that sounds like a country restriction. Sorry.

    Max win $250, you're right.

    TBH, I never checked the live limits before but I think it's country related.

    Could someone from SBR with contacts at BOL please ask them if it's indeed true that they limited all live wagers to $250 max (on all sports, even NBA and NFL) for all European players? And what the reasoning behind this is?
    Would really appreciate it!

    European but not German BOL customer here. They cut my limits to 250 USD live on most sports back in July, but for some sports, including UFC, I can still get 1,000 USD live.
