    Why don't you just send them the number? Hardly sounds an unreasonable request.

    Yea going to send on, I know its not going to be given away or anything but an email beforehand would of been nice rather than trying to log on and my account is suspended.

    PP just annoying me as had problems with their live bets too and just wanted to be awkward torwards them :pac:

    As already said, everybody is doing it now.
    The T&C's when you sign up first (not that anybody ever reads them) say you will have to verify your account if asked.

    Boyles have changed their Golf offers :mad:.
    Used to be Cash Back if 2nd or 3rd in (mostly) both Sky tournaments weekly.
    Now changed to Money Back as a FREE BET so stake not refunded any more.

    Right lads, hopefully someone has some advice for me here. I made a bet with boylesports (both online and in shops) on Eden Hazard to be in the PFA team of the year as a midfielder. The docket itself says "PFA team of the year Midfielders". I went to the shop to collect, and they said it was paying out as a dead heat. I explained the bet and how it couldn't be a dead heat, the man in the shop rang someone to check and then they paid me out in full. However, the online bet was paid out as a dead heat and when I went to live chat they referred it to a trader and the still say it's a dead heat. What do I do here, I really can't leave it as its €700 I'm missing out on and they're completely in the wrong.

    I went in to paddy bookies wrote down my online account name and gave them 20 euro. Into account no issue. Can I walk in tomorrow and withdraw the same way?

    How could there be a dead heat if the bet was !to make a team"?

    I would get back onto Live Chat and say (don't mention it was you) that someone else you know had a bet in the shop and got paid the full amount.
    IBAS would be the next port of call.

    Every time I collect from Boylesports, it takes them ages to pay out and the staff member will look at you as if you were doing something wrong.

    That's a bizarre decision. I can accept that errors are made and I suppose a result can be settled incorrectly but surely as soon as the complaint was made Boyles could see this and rectify it and resettle the market. Don't see why there had to be such a runaround when it was pointed out to them. Especially when if they fixed it once for the shop bet already.

    Terrible company. Have an account with them but it's so rare they go top price on anything that the one time this past football season they were top price on my selection I couldn't remember my account details.

    Right my boylesports problem was all sorted, I sorted it with them but I think it was only when I threatened to take it to IBAS did they clear it up. It had already been reviewed by their trading department once and they didn't clear it up the first time.

    Thanks for the suggestion.

    I currently have a PP account and a Betfair account, for betting on horse racing.

    I know it's often said that it's best to have several accounts. Going to set up a third account today - any advice for the best bookie for online betting on horse racing?

    Apologies if this has been covered already; it's a very long thread! :o

    :mad:

    Betfair now passing on the 1.5% charge on deposits for VISA cards.

    I think they are the only bookmaker to do this?


  • Registered Users Posts: 691 ✭✭✭ianburke


    Betfair Customer Services:

    "Really sorry, there's been a technical issue with Irish debit cards today.

    Any customer charged 1.5% on these deposits will be refunded shortly."

    365 for the soccer offers alone

    Had a 9/2 (morning price) winner in a race in Tipperary yesterday with 888sport. There was a rule 4 deduction, looks like I lost 25%. Thing is I got paid out less than the sp. Didn't seem right, should I get back to them

    Surely I should get the sp at the very minimum?

    Thanks


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 599 ✭✭✭Ian Whelan


    "Best Price Guaranteed" aside and assuming that you do not get the best price guaranteed then I understand that the rules of racing state that if the withdrawal occurs prior to the formation of a new market and the SP under the new market is not less than the original price then you are paid out at the original price.

    What should happen here.. Put an accumulator on in shop. Last leg was Treviso +26 which i saw on coupon. Arrive to collect told sorry the correct line was 25. As a 'goodwill gesture' we will void that part of bet. Surely this isn't right? Why did they take bet if the line on coupon was incorrect and never checked before taking bet.
