    Limited on Betway Without Placing a Bet?!

    I signed up with Betway about a month ago. I noticed my limits on their boost markets were limited to $5.87 from day 1.

    Today customer support told me:

    Active Betting accounts are reviewed across the industry on a regular basis. Due to certain factors and periodic Account reviews, a decision was made to limit the betting on your account. I wish I could provide you with more feedback on the matter, but Senior Management do not inform us on the reason as to why they came to such a decision.
    How was I limited before placing a single bet? When they say "accounts are reviewed across the industry" are they comparing notes with other books where I have accounts?

    Blatantly illegal in many countries, but lots of books do it.

    Did you place any bets?

    Just seeing promo bets limited on join-up sounds more like a player management thing. Waiting to see your first few bets to classify you.

    I may be wrong, but I think they would limit your bets if it was about you, not just your boosted promo max.

    I agree market collusion is illegal.

    So now a supervisor is telling me I was limited on promo bets starting October 30th. I had placed bets before that date, but none on promos. Strangely, I'm not limited on any markets that I placed bets on to get the promo limit.

    The sportsbooks have a database that shows how much you how much you have won and all your betting activity. BOL once did not give me a bonus because of my average bet size. The bet size they quoted was right but I had never made a bet that small at BOL.
