Default Two questions

I tried this once before but I think I screwed it up so it didn't print. I'll try again.

I have 2 questions for the forum as a whole. These apply to sports betting.

1Has anyone here been backed off by an off shore site? If so, how and why.

2. Over the "long term" (an entire season or a calendar year) which approach has proven more successful:

A. More bets at a lower dollar amount; or

B. Fewer bets at a higher dollar amount.

In this business.. Less is more.... Knock down the bets.... If you bet 4 games a day... Take it down to 2.... You can research the best book for you... But if you wanna get paid with no hassle..... Bookmaker. Been around longer then Microsoft... (sorry facts.... That's your line) but it's true.. that is it.... Period

Ive never been backed off of any book. Ive only bet with two offshore books in my life. I've never had an issue with either of them. I signed up with Bookmaker in August for the first time. Did it for a few reasons. One is all of the positive feedback about it on this site and the slim fact that if you do have an issue Facts will resolve it for you. Peace of mind is key.

Grandpahuey not to avoid your second question but to let you know the thing that brought me to this site was I came across Facts videos on YouTube. They made a lot of sense to me and provided some great knowledge. He doesnt beat around the bush and tells you how the industry really is. If you have time and are looking to bet more on sports then those should be a must view.

Thanks, Thrill. I agree Joe's videos are informative. He gives you the straight scoop. I guess that is why he is the FACTSman.

I too became a member of Bookmaker because of this site. I've never had a problem with them. By my question I don't mean to infer I have ever been backed off by a book, on shore or off shore. I know we have a lot of players in here so I thought I may spark a little conversation and elicit a few war stories.

Fewer bets at an amount that is proportionate to your bankroll.

The more bets you place, the closer you will come to break even, which loses money, unless you are betting a lot of baseball dogs.

For example, if you bet every NFL game on a weekend, odds are you will probably lose in the long run.

Fewer bets on games where you feel you have an edge is better, even if the wager is larger.

Just my two-cents worth.

Never been backed off by a book, but did get screwed by one once, which is why I came over to Bookmaker. I used a well known, A Rated book for decades and never had a problem. About a year ago after making a deposit by credit card, I started getting fraud charges on that card. I disputed the fraud charges and the book closed my account and held my winnings hostage. They said if I paid them $500, they would re-open my account and I could withdraw my winnings (much greater than $500). While I was tempted, at that point I no longer trusted them. Who is to say they would keep their word and not just steal another $500 from me?

Had no problems with Bookmaker and Facts fixed me up with a good bonus. Cant beat that.

Always use bookmaker so never have I been burned at any books but I'm sure plenty out there have at other books

Agree with everyone else. Less bets the better and most importantly keep the bet amounts consistent. I don't do 20 one game 50 the next 10 the next 30 the next, see what I mean? Keep it same amount each play and limit the plays per day to one or a couple and it seems to work alot better than tons of plays and scattered bet amounts..good to see you back gpa Huey!!

i know many big name books that will cut your limits if your winning
some will shut you out.

and its not even the guys winning big figures
i know places like 5 dimes-heritage- betonline - bovada- to name a few
that if your betting $100 or so and winning............they will cut you to $25
a game or get rid of you

bookmaker's motto

1. we cant pay you fast enough
2. we never shut out a player for winning

THATS ALL I NEED TO KNOW
--------------------------------------------------

WAGERING...............QUALITY BEATS QUANTITY

example my football card this weekend from thursday through sunday
is only 7 games............thats less then 2 plays a day.

i know guys on a Saturday bet 7 games on the early games.

i know guys that bet 30 or more games on a Saturday or Sunday

2 weeks ago...........friend of mine went 17-15 betting 32 games

he bet $100 a game and was happy as fuck

he won $50.............not a misprint fifty bucks

and had to win 17 games to make that $50

i said to him

you put $3,250 in play in 48 hours
you had to win 17 out of those 32 games to show a profit

its crazy

i told him..............bet 3 games a day if you want action
for $200 or $300 each

at least if you get lucky you can make some money

some people dont get it

Good to be back, Johnny C.

As I've said I am primarily a horseplayer. I know I'm much better off by only betting a few races a day rather than try to sweep the card. I would imagine it would be the same with sports betting but I wanted to ask you guys to confirm.

I know some guys who bet sports in Vegas who have been backed off but I have never heard about it happening off shore --instead they merely steal your dough and you have little recourse. Thankfully no such problem seems to exist with Bookmaker!

Thanks one and all for your responses.

GRAND

THE 8% REBATE to a true horse player is huge

with all the take outs and how the tracks are killing people
with %

its refreshing to get that 8% back @ bookmaker

You should set a threshold for any sport/league that u bet. If you're betting more than xx%...you're very likely betting too much. Don't splash the board.
