Yellow vests and the punters

We are being spanked real bad, whether we are British, French, Portuguese or Tataruzhbekis. It has even been said by a government spokesman that ... "we have succeeded in limiting payouts" ! But the yellow vests in France managed to bend Macron ! They almost burned Notre Dame in the process, as well...

Re: Uk company allowed me to bet from Dominican

If the company does n't have a Dominican license then they should a) refuse to accept members from the Dominican republic, b) block Dominican ip's from entering the betting sessions i.e. from logging in. Blocking ip ranges is not difficult for their webmasters to do but sometimes they forget, leadin...

Watch this Greek ad

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RPaow9QbmBo It's from the old days, 2002, when "irresponsible" gambling was allowed ! It's a tricky ad in many ways. The woman in the ad is shouting "the extra 5 coupons will turn us into Switzerland" ! Extra 5 is a form of Lotto. The woman is supposed to have organiz...

Re: Tall and short

How much money are we talking about exactly? Judging by the level of corruption in Greece, I wouldn't be surprised if the missing third was distributed among the chiefs of police themselves. Happened back in the nineties. Probably 20-25 million drachmas. I don't believe the police could become invo...

Re: Tricky dicky prices from bet365

'Dutching' is for the exchanges; end of. What do you mean ? I can dutch anything. For instance the prices 2.00 and 3.00 become 2 x 3 / (2 + 3) = 6 / 5 = 1.20 The bookie will pay me 1.20 but If one uses their readily available double chance option it says 1.17. That's a cheat. I can dutch multiple s...

Re: Arrested by Golden dawn (!) - beaten up by police

This all sounds awful. I hope your health gets sorted out. JJ I 'm ok now but they are putting me under those hellish machines for observation from time to time. The golden dawnies seem to have taken advantage of some hole in the law, enabling the police to arrest journalists / internet publishers ...

Account closures - the only remedy

It's been going on for some years. I used to read about such issues in footie forums, back in 2002-3. Don't know how many of the complaints were valid but there were hundrerds of such. The view of the adjudication authorities is that they can do nothing about it. IBAS for example say so in their "he...

Re: Tricky dicky prices from bet365

I checked all the double chances on 4/10 - champions league day. Also for a number of premiership matches. Always less than what it is when you dutch the two selections ! And it's not only bet365, all online bookies do that. The only reason is to take advantage of the ignorant. To speed up operation...

Arrested by Golden dawn (!) - beaten up by police

An extraordinary thing happened to me yesterday. First of all I have to sadly report to you that I 'm not well. The initial diagnosis is no good but we will know for sure next week. Yesterday morning I was at home waiting for the hospital surgeon to call me. Hr did so today and took me to hospital (...

Re: Sunbets Con

I never came across this with bet365. When your bet is all but lost they either offer you something like 1/10th of your stake or the cash-out button is dimmed and you cannot cash out. Last year I had a 20 euro bet on Ibrahimovitz top scorer and they were cashing it out for 15-16 euros, as he was not...
