When do bookies ban you from betting sites?

How much money from one individual betting site would you have to earn in, say, a year to get banned? If you earned around £5,000 - £10,000 from one betting site in a year would they ban you?

They wouldn't have grounds to ban you unless you've done something illegal to make that money. 

A few years ago I had an incredibly lucky streak where I started with £500 and withdrew £35,000 within a couple of weeks mostly through sports but also a couple of big wins on slots. I got a phone call asking why suddenly my stakes were much bigger than before and basically asking if I was ok and not gambling too much, but there was no suggestion of getting banned or suspended. 

I have probably put most of that back in during the years since, but such is life. It did buy me a car and a few holidays at the time.

I guess what @John.Dav means is that when they take a view that you are too clever and close your account.

Personally, I think ALL bookmakers should be made to take a minimum amount of £50 on any bet. They are "book makers" after all, which means you manage your book. Pinnacle don't ban punters, they allow winning punters and hedge, whilst also placing that same bet elsewhere if they see that punter is a long term profit maker. 

Bookmakers should become book makers again and not what they seem to have become, which is traders.

In the early years of Betfair I was arbing correct scores, betting them at bookmakers and laying them on betfair. In the end I got limited by most of them which was ridiculous I thought.  Boyle Sports was the worst. By chance I won a 3-3 bet at 80 on about my fifth bet in there and found myself limited to £1 stakes after that!  I even got limited down to a £1 by Bet 365.  The one that didn't were Pinnacle but sadly they stopped doing correct scores which was a real shame as they used to have some real crackers when they put them up. I once got a  1-0 at 12.00 that I managed to lay on betfair at 7.60.  Got over £200 on it at Pinnacle as well. Those were the days!

Totally agreed.

Only thing that's worth adding to the general flavour if this thread; I think it's very little to do with how much you've won, but more to do the prices at which you have done it (and how fast). Industry is certainly changing.

I agree it has a lot less to do with how much you win and more to do with how you bet.  I had an account limited at Marathon in around half an hour for sniping prices.  Bookies call it "Twigs and Leaves", what they mean by that is that they leave some prices out there on obscure markets trapping snipers into taking the bait.  Or if you consistently take a price prior to a market move they will ping you.  My side of the world calls it getting clipped I believe you guys call it gubbing (dont know why)????  

My solution was to bet with crypto sportsbooks, they don't have any way of clipping you.

I'm new here so I don't know if I can post bookies names or not, if its allowed I can give my review on a few of the crypto bookies.
