When I enquired as to why this was so, they told me that Bet365 frequently review policies in line with responsible gambling and that I had been excluded from their BOG offer. I have never had more than £200 deposited with them and my bets have always been small. I told them that I was a responsible gambler and wished to appeal, but they just would not discuss the matter further. I think I may have got an opening deal of £100 for joining in the good old days and they have been trying to get their own back on me ever since. This is why I now bet with Betfred. Their loss.; In defence of Bet365. I see you playing the victim again here i have noticed it on several of your comments in the past, "they are tying to get their own back" WTF is that sort of mentality? do you really think that your loses are so important that they would "get their own back on you for a poxy £100 quid? The £200 opening deal was what in effect made them (365) the leading online bookies, the other bookies entering the online market were woeful in comparison £5 from hills if i remember correctly £20 ladbrokes. betfred £30. Did you ever stop to consider that in time these "offers" would be diluted? If i changed bookies every time one of them pissed me off i would have nowhere left to place a bet. apart from that, when was the last time you physically went into a bookies and got anything "free" I remember @MCLARKE saying how much he had made from "free bets" I myself have done very well out of "free bets" last years cheltenham 365 gave me over £30 quid the GN offer was outstanding, £125 quid i got back off that one just for putting my families bets on if i remember correctly, Mike can confirm if that amount was accurate as he recently alluded to it. When times are challenging as they are at the moment everyone cuts back so why shouldn't bookies? One last thing what defines a "responsible gambler?" anyone spending more than 5% of their income on gambling is traditionally considered irresponsible. Is going 3 years losing responsible? bookies depend on irresponsible gamblers to make money so they are under attack in their eyes, they are not in business to make sure your loses are affordable but they are being forced to do so and in doing so it is going to cost them money, it does not matter which bookie you bet with. You finish with "their loss" might i suggest they don't care so, it's your loss having one less option assuming you stick with your rhetoric that is. One thing i do know is that if they (bet365) offered a one off £100 loyalty payout in bet credits for existing customers tomorrow you would be right at the front of the queue and Betfred or any other bookie would be forgotten until you finished spending it. They gave you £100 (the option was up to £200) quid to start with and now you are slagging them off, wow unbelievable Jeff.
