As many on here will know I would have a wide knowledge of the horse and greyhound racing industries. More so in Ireland than the uk, but anyway


Over the last 2/3 months i have been showing a profit on the account at the end of every week. This has mostly been involved in the Irish Greyhound Market.

Last week I got a substantial accumulator up on this type of market and it was paid into my account no problem. Then the trouble started. My maximum stake on the website is now somewhere between €7.50 and maybe €15 if Im very lucky. I cannot get €1 on any Uk or Irish greyhound market and I couldnt even get €10 on a football bet on Tuesday Night. I also tried to have €50 on a 6/5 shot in a Uk Horse Racing Market the other day and my stake was maxed out at €17 euro.

Paddy Power have said via the chat service they are limiting their liabilities.   Hers the email i got the other day.

Running Scared they are. Any one else in the same boat

They do that to accounts that for them are losers. As any business would do. 

The great thing is that there are ample alternatives out there for customers.

All bookies do it.Its a bitch but as kerrzy said plenty of other alternatives.

Best thing to do is get a skrill account and join up numerous bookies can transfer between bookies and skrill for free and get best prices.

Thats a **** if thats the case. I dont bet on the dogs so wouldnt know. As TR_Andy says, you'll just have to cheat the system. Either bet in the shop or set up with a mate's/family member's name. Problem is that you'll have to use his/hers card AFAIK

You can only use a card registered in your own name to fund your pp account from moneybookers. also with ukash you need to prove your identity before withdrawing. ID, proof of address etc.

You are either a bookmaker or you are not, they are not.

A punter has the choice as to whether they want to place a bet with someone and a bookie also has the choice whether they want to accept a persons bet. It works both ways. In a lot of cases the bookie will also restrict if they find the punter is hedging their bets a lot of the time.

One of my pals who is semi professional gambler told me that they have handwriting analysis facilities in the shops [or maybe centrally] so they can identify restricted punters who travel to branches where they are not known and they similarly use the in-shop cctv to identify restricted punters.  Is it true SGB?

Waiting on Marseille for a 10 team accumulator, Cash out option was a little more than the price of the bet at the start of the game, became unavailable at kick off and has been unavailable for the whole game where Marseille have been muck! DO they only make it available when it suits them?

You are spot on SGB. But bookmakers can be beaten if you have incredible patience and discipline. I select my markets very carefully

Greyhound markets.
Distance betting

Match betting on all weather handicaps. You don't realise the amount of non triers in these races. Get word from trainers. Check speed form and timeform Stats handicap marks and stats There is normally 2 or 3 match bets pitting horses against each other per race. If you study these you will see that some of these horses in match bets are almost impossible to finish in front of the horse they are against. The price might be 8/13 or 1/2 but they only have to beat 1 other horse and in generally it's very profitable


At the end of the day all bookmakers just want the 2 euro or 5 euro punter in their shops. That's how they make their money

Another note on the greyhound betting


I got word from a uk bags meeting recently that there was a greyhound in a certain race who was a "cert" barring an accident. The bookmakers were all in on the act . There was about 5 punters at the track and we're all in on it too. The dog was about 3 seconds quicker than any other dog in the race. The bookmakers priced the dog up at 4-1 on the basis that no1 on the track would back it. In reality he was a 1/3 shot.

Anyway the dog was backed in bookmakers shops in small stakes. No price was taken . Ie 50 small 10 er bets throughout London shops at sp.

Anyway the dog pissed up by 11 lenghts at 4-1. Every body went home happy.

€250 small bet for a bit of Sunday interest. Probably should have covered the bet, didn't think of it as I was cursing Powers too much.


Posted By: Bob Hoskins
Date Posted: 18 Jan 2015 at 11:41pm
I practically don't bet anymore. My strategy is if I see a really good value bet I will put a large bet on it. The last time that was Ireland -1 against that Middle East tean (what the hell are they called!!).

And that's the only way I think I'd ever beat the bookie.

When big tournaments come round will put on a few bets to keep it interesting

I know almost nothing about dog racing.  Do the chains not have their own pitches at dog tracks the same as they do at race courses?

I think there are minimum odds to qualify for the rollover requirements. I have a feeling there is.1/2 is the min iirc.

I don't usually bother with most of the promotions but the 365,one is excellent. Matching up to 200 quid is huge even if you have to gamble 1200 before withdrawal.

"Newcastle have suffered more Kop beatings over the last 20 years than an unarmed African-American male."

????

That one? Hardly racist. The opposite, in fact. Satire, pointing out that US Cops are assholes.

Bet was in running on a football match, with 10 mins to play the team in question where 2-0 up and I saw the price(it was blatantly/stupidly wrong) 3/1, draw was 1/50 on, anyway lashed on a few quid,  then price moved out to 6/1 lashed on another few quid as did a few others..Match ended 2-1 and result was pending for quite sometime, when it did settle they paid the price it should have been 1/100 on...
Sent them off a mail and they came back with all the spiel about errors and wrong pricing etc.
Coonts, would have happily snapped up the coin if bet had failed.

Of course they would have. I have no ideas how that makes Paddy Power "coonts" as you put it? You thought you saw an opportunity to take advantage of a blatant price error (I would have done the same) and you didnt get away it. The amount of people gambling who seem to absolutely despise the bookies but still bet with them is mind boggling. If you hate them so much stop pumping money into them. Bizarre Confused

I totally agree with Wallsy. 

Unfortunately in life people make  mistakes and you have to allow for that. You knew that wasnt the correct price yet you still moan about not being paid out on the incorrect price. The terms and conditions are there as there will always be an element of human error involved especially when prices are changing so often with BIR. If you think PP are as bad as you say then you need to close your account with them.

Yes, once a blatant price error is spotted then all customers effected be it win, loss or whatever the outcome, are contacted. You either have the option to cancel your bet or be paid at the correct price.

Very disappointed that my big bet so far this year wasn't with Paddy Power, like nothing more than taking a large whack of them, not sure which was sweeter winning €650, or collecting it off PP last October.

I've no beef with PP or any bookmaker but the industry itself is a bit dodgy - they are covered by some crazy clauses.

Nearly every gambler I know week in week out feels like they are being done out of money by their gambling company. They winge and moan and complain yet every week they continue to hand over their cash to them. If you dont like the industry or the way it is run then dont bet its as simple as that. If I felt I was being robbed all the time or done out of money by a company there is no way in hell I would continuegiving them my business.

And about the "clauses" they are available to anyone to view prior to you opening an account with any betting companies. If you feel they are unfair then you probably shouldnt start an account with them.

Hmm not sure who that rant is directed at. I never said they robbed me every week.

Some of the clauses in the bookmaking industry are far from normal. Not just online, they've been known to bar people from bookies who get a few winners. From a business point of view, as you are talking, they refuse custom to one person even though the same service is available to others at the same price. You wouldn't get away with that in other industries.
 
And there's no point saying if you feel a particular clause is unfair don't do business with them. That's like saying if you don't like paying €40 for a boarding card don't fly with Ryanair!

The aim of every company and business is to do you out of money. I don't trust any of them. Should I go live in the woods SGB?

Very true. Always found it quite amazing that they are able to get away with that.

I don't see what the big fuss is about.  You could hardly expect PP to honour the bets in question especially as everyone betting on the event knew it was a mistake.  Amazon had a similar problem before Christmas where a load of stuff was sold at a penny a unit and when they copped it they cancelled all orders that hadn't yet been dispatched.   They wrote to customers as follows

We're writing to let you know that your order (redacted) from (redacted) has been cancelled because the price of the item(s) wasn't set correctly by the Seller. In most cases, you pay for items when they're dispatched to you, so you won't be charged for items that are cancelled.

If you have any questions about the cancellation of this order, please contact your seller (LINK)

Sellers on Amazon strive to minimize cancelled orders. We're sorry for the inconvenience this has caused.

For your reference, we've included the details of your cancelled order below.

It's a loophole that I never understood.

If you went to a restaurant and saw that the steak was on the menu for €1, ordered it, ate it, then they handed you a bill for €100 saying the price was wrong, do ya think you'd pay it?

they do the same in shops.. take a bet on the borderling of the no more bets time slot.. never tell you.. if it wins u go to collect and end up getting ur stake back. if it looses u dont go up cos it lost

who keeps the stake then?

I work in a bookies and its really up to the cashier to inform the customer, but the problem is that the bet doesnt always come up saying its late until its handed in to be collected. So the majority of the time the cashier wont know its too late until the docket is scanned to be collected. However sometimes it does come up saying its late and its really up to the cashier then to inform the customer. 

It will also probably depend on what type of customer you are as well for the cashier to decide to tell you if its too late and you can have your money back Wink
