Posting this, due to my hatred of Hills. They were the first company to ever ban me - over a £250 bet on a tennis match at Evens, just because everybody else had reduced their price to 1.72 before them

Tip of the iceberg, been a long time since I've been in a bookies but I'm sure they'll still be fawning over the pensioners and unemployed punters as they're their bread and butter.

Yes, and all the poor sods who have serious gambling issues, and spend their dough on those FOBT's

Most FOBT's are occupied by the local dealers cleaning their cash these days :)

I love bookies ..... until they restrict me.

I've had an issue with William Hill over a non-runner in the US that they refused to accept was a non-starter - it took three months for me to eventually convince them to refund my stake. But in fairness to WH, I've made more money out of them than any other bookie simply because they allowed me to consistently profit from there mistakes for several months on just moderately restricted stakes - longer than any other bookie.

Bet365 were the worst - they pulled the plug after just a few hundred quid!

When I was arbing all last year Hills were the bookie who allowed me to win the most before restrictions kicked in, about 5 K up something in that ballpark. none of the other 8 or so inc 365 Laddies allowed me to get anywhere near that figure so although I loath them I loath them less than I do all the others.

That's about twice as much as I got out of them. :)
