    Hi,

    Ok so I checked the charter and there are no rules against discussing it, and its not illegal so i said why not ask here!:o

    I am tempted to buy a bet365 account online (mine is restricted to the point of uselessness). I am going to presume that most sites are scams so Im very reluctant, but I am wondering does anyone have experience with this?

    I dont really want to ask friends/family for various reasons/mainly stigma around betting.

    I ll allow the discussion as long as this thread doesnt start to look like donedeal\adverts.

    Wouldnt buy one personally from strangers.
    Also think they would be quite quick with limiting your bought account as well as they might see a difference in ways of betting pretty fast

    I guess if it was unused that would be a problem.

    Yea to be honest Id be eager to withdraw regularly and keep as little money in there as possible, not a chance in hell are you getting your money back if they freeze it.

    There's alot of crap online that smell of scams so I dont feel like being fleeced.

    But they really do seem to be best bookie odds and market and offers wise (no I dont work for them :D) so its pretty annoying not having one!

    I'm on my 7th bet365 account. Family, missus, inlaws, friends etc. I'd give them 250 up front and a percentage of any profits.
    Need to be careful using same phone, IP Address, computer, address etc. Generally manage to get a year out of bet365 once I take it easy on horse racing. They are the best of the bookies by a long way IMO. The likes of Boyles, Skybet, Sportsbook, Ladbrokes are a waste of space.

    Interesting, what did you do about bank accounts? Did you get them to set up or just use their existing one?

    Regarding the rest, id probably buy a cheap phone or something with data to keep the IP/device seperate. Im assuming the address would be the family/friend

    Just I dont want to ask friends who dont yet have a mortgage and if Im frank Im just a bit embarrased asking family but I might, if I explain it properly.

    I like the up front payment offer.

    Have you used odds comparison websites to get the best odds and use PayPal to move your bankroll between books before going down this route?


    Yea I have other accounts, but between offers, market selection and odds and convenience its kind of hard to beat them tbh.

    Got them to set up a new bank account. Usually friends who already had a mortgage or were years from getting one. bet365 used to a 200 euro bonus for new accounts so effectively I was using that to pay most of the upfront payment.

    If you have an obvious betting pattern though it might not be worth your while. A friend of mine was very good at pricing horses in dundalk so every Thursday night he would lump on bet365 on a few horses for Dundalk the following evening. When his account was restricted and he set up a new one with a relation, it only lasted 2 weeks.

    I think Id be fine from that end to be honest.

    I was playing some pretty obscure markets where value was dropping straight away after betting. Had a healthy account up until then (healthy meaning off the bet365 radar).

    Whereas this time I would avoid those as they were too time consuming anyway to get right and profit from. Id also do the odd mug punt.

    I use offers and sometimes lay off against the offers etc on exchanges , this makes back enough losses to turn a profit, but if I didnt take the piss I think it would be ok.

    Cheers for the help, think ill just bite the bullet and ask family.

    Slightly off topic but it's helpful to try and appear muggy to keep an account going. Eg when you have your selections double and triple them with random darts or tennis matches or something where you are getting the best price.
