Yep i agree. It’s absolutely ridiculous. If they are that worried about people “abusing” their promotions why dont they just limit the stakes it applies to to reduce their losses on it or do what William Hill does and make them opt in which puts the onus on the punter then to decide if they want to use it or not. It just seems like the worst business model for them to retain and grow customers. Sportsbet is miles ahead of any bookie because they keep their customer’s betting with them even if they are only promotional betters.
Isn’t there like a central governing body that monitors and controls all these bookies? Surely they are in breach of false advertising if they advertise all these specials to entice you in then refuse to offer them after they have your money?
