    Hi,

    I have operated various accounts over the years. I am always looking for new firms that I might have overlooked. Anybody have any positive experience with other online businesses:

    Accounts I hold/held:

    PP, Betfair, Boyles, Ladbrokes, WH, Corals, Bet365, Sky, 888, Betbright, VC, Betfred, SJ, Betway, Betdaq.

    Of those, the only ones I would rate are Bet365, Exchange part of Ladbrokes/Betdaq, Betfair (when I don't go on a mad one!).....any other suggestions for accounts I might have overlooked.

    Thanks in advance

    They will all close you down if you win if you are a mug they will keep the account open

    Yeah, I know what you mean. Some very quick to close. Have seen Pinnacle....i find the website very cluttered and the choice of markets not that great. Has anybody any experience with operating an account with them and the free withdrawal if you only make certain numbers of withdrawals craic? Mainly bet on soccer, rugby, boxing.

    Exchange part of Ladbrokes/Betdaq

    On what markets?
    Found the liquidity to be poor and getting bets matched is very slow, only really gets matched quickly when it's the opposite of what I'm doing on Betfair.

    Only for major markets, win/draw/win, clean sheet, ht/ft...but would agree liquidity is poor for a lot of things. More so, that stakes aren't cut arbitrarily when I go to do a bet. Unfortunately I can't get a Betfair account open as the frustration with sending documents to be met with silence or requests for other docs. is far too frustrating.

    You should have to supply the same documents for all bookies.
    Photo ID, proof of address and that's really it.

    Have you looked at smarkets.com or matchbook.com as alternatives?
    2% commission at smarkets (good liquidity on major markets in a match) and 1% commission with matchbook but on both profits and losses which is great is you are winning and a pain if you are losing.
    W/D/W is good liquidity rest not so.
    Smarkets do racing and liquidity is as good as Betfair at times which helps at 2% rate.
    Think matchbook started racing but haven't been on there for a while so no idea of liquidity.
