Welcome to Bet_to_lose.co.uk a unique new online bookmaking service that tells you the truth before you register your account with us.
Under UK consumer law an online company must state and make easily available full details of their trading conditions (contract) before anyone registers and trades with them. This should be done using brief, clear terms and conditions. At the bottom of this webpage there is a registration button. Before clicking on it you should read what follows, very, very carefully.
We have chosen to register our new gambling website in the UK as the regulation appears to be very strict, but isn’t, allowing online bookmakers to appear to offer a really good, secure deal for customers, when of course it isn’t.
Bet_to_lose.co.uk – Terms and conditions – summary of major implications
(Please note these terms and conditions are based on those used by other major online bookmakers they ARE NOT A SPOOF)
- Accepting trade
We reserve the right to refuse the whole or part of any Transaction requested by you at any time at our sole discretion.
Plain English translation: If you show any gambling ability at all we will stop you betting by closing your account or only allow you to bet in tiny amounts, e.g. 10p single win bets or 1p multiple bets. Our name ‘Bet_to_lose’ has been chosen for a reason. UK law allows us to simply prey on poor gamblers and we intend to do just that, because the regulator and government see this as ethical and do not intervene.
- Account verification
Without warning we may have to contact you and ask you to provide further information to us directly in order to complete identity checks. When doing this, we will be entitled, at our sole discretion, to require that you provide us with ID signed by a lawyer or any equivalent certified ID according to applicable law, or otherwise, proof of address, utility bills, bank details, bank statements and bank references. Until such information has been supplied to our satisfaction we may prevent any activity to be undertaken by you in relation to the Account or we may, where we reasonably believe that deliberately incorrect information has been provided by you, keep any amount deposited on the Account following the closure of the Account by us.
Plain English translation: At our sole discretion, (i.e. your opinion, even if factual, does not count) we can, without providing any evidence whatsoever accuse you of not being who you are and hint that you have been involved in naughty deeds and keep your money. There is a common assumption that we do all these identity checks when you open your account, but we don’t have to, except age, so we only do them if we suspect crime or if you win before we close or restrict your account and we don’t want to give you your money back.
- As a gambler we need to keep an extra ‘eye’ on you
Your Personal Information may be complemented with information from third party service providers (e.g. for the prevention of crime or identity checks or for advertising and analytics purposes) or otherwise from third party service providers and/or publicly available sources and information.
Plain English translation: We trust nobody who gambles and without you knowing we will download software (incorrectly labelled as 3rd party cookies) on to the e-device you use to gamble and spy on that e-device for eternity, so that we can gather as much information as possible about you and your e-devices. If you attempt to stop this happening we may stop you logging into your account. Despite some of these actions being deemed as breaching the UK Data Protection Act (1998), once again the regulator and government despite knowing about this are choosing to do nothing.
- Security of your money
Our British Gambling Commission licence means we have to inform customers about what happens to funds which we hold on account for you, and the extent to which funds are protected in the event of insolvency www.gamblingcommission.gov.uk/consumers/protection_of_customer_funds.aspx. Monies in your account are not insured, guaranteed, or otherwise protected by any deposit or banking insurance system or by any other similar insurance system. As such, monies in your account are not protected in the event of insolvency. This meets the Gambling Commission’s requirements for the segregation of customer funds at the level: basic segregation.
Plain English translation: There are three levels of protection for your money. We have chosen ‘Basic’, which despite you thinking your deposits maybe protected they are not and if we go bankrupt you may get a tiny amount of your money back at best, but it will probably be nothing.
Bet_to_lose.co.uk – Full Terms and conditions
Our full terms and conditions, contrary to UK consumer law, are over 20,000 words. We know we tell you to read them before registering with us, however we do accept this is ‘madness’ and nobody does, so we do feel it is only fair that you concentrate on the four main T&Cs above.

ps: Are you certain you’re OK?
Gamble responsibly: If your FUN stops, please do STOP. It’s only fair to do this as when our FUN stops, i.e. when we are not making money from your account; your FUN will definitely be stopped in no uncertain manner (see Section 1).
