Well after being with bet365 for about 2 months.
I would have to say DONT bother with them full stop!!

It's a shame!! As they (Bet365) Did seem very good
To start with.As I like to place fixed odds bets bet365
Have a very good array of fixed odds options..

Often having odds up one even two days prior
To other agency's such as sports bet, centre bet,
Etc..So last week I decided to make my first withdrawal
From my bet365 account after winning a few dollars.
$250 dollars to be exact.

So Wednesday last week I make my withdrawal via Internet
Transaction..knowing it may take a couple days to arrive
I waited until Friday of last week to check my account..
No deposit had arrived from bet365...

So I decided to call them..customer service at bet365 adviced
Me the transfer would be wired from England and to expect this
To take between 1-3 working days.

So I waited through the weekend until Monday evening and still
No payment.. Waited until Tuesday evening still no payment
So called bet365 again Wednesday.. Customer service..there
Advice this time was to contact my bank and ask them if they
Can find the payment.. And after 10 working days have passed
If payment still hasn't been received to call bet365 again and they
Will conduct a trace on the payment...fantastic!!!! My advice to anyone
Considering bet365 DONT!!!

Could be worse. Could have won more then they just close your account. Weakest betting agency in the world.

I see no difference between what these guys are doing and Coles being penalised millions by ACCC for not passing on earned funds to dairy farmers.

Technically, there will be some fine print which allows them to rip off punters but morally it is ridiculous.

The problem is that the NT government not only gives them near-free tax privileges but also permits them to make up their own rules. TABCORP and Ubet have no such benefits from the respective state governments (although their FO betting is also suspect).

Governments (including the Commonwealth) are hell bent on stopping dicey overseas-based betting houses yet the damage they cause is little different to the money-manipulations generated by corporate bookies.

Curiously, they still get plenty of business from Aussie gamblers, whose arithmetic knowledge is also poor.

The recent addition of Point of Sale taxes on corporates helps to even the field a little but their impact is modest at the end of the day (applying only to winning races).

Somehow, the Australian states should gang up on the NT in the interests of their own tax incomes as well as the welfare of punters. NB the Commonwealth does have latent powers over Territories so it just needs the will to use them.

The further issue is that I have never heard of any effort at all put in by greyhound authorities to correct these mal-practices - and they deal with the corporates every day. Either they don't know (?) or they don't care.

Yet now the trots are recognising a big problem with low turnover and have got GRNSW to speak in support (Mestrov) of a national tote. This is inadequate and totally inconsistent.

What they are all missing is that poor betting options are a barrier to progress. The effect is already evident in the customer profile, especially the disappearance of serious punters. It will get worse - nothing stays the same.

Commonly known as Bet £3.65 in the UK lol, usually shut your account down or restric once you start winning.

Ladbrokes are no angels either.
you can only withdraw your winnings,not any or part of your deposit,
meaning you have to bet till you lose it all or close the account (so I closed the account)
