Just logged into Ladbrokes where I still have some money sitting to check a price, clicked on the odds boost and it went from $4.50 to $4.60    :lol:  

Talk about a pathetic excuse for a betting company, they want your money but only if you lose  emthdown

Last weekend I went for the Ladbrokes odds boost on Jameka at $3.20 and the odds boost went to $3.50. So I went to have $400 on at the $3.50 and the "odds have changed" banner came up and the best price I could get was $3.00.

I didn't take the odds and went to Sportsbet and they had Jameka at $3.10 and with their odds boost I got set for my $400 at $3.40.

Only one way to stop the parasites at Ladbrokes and that is, just don't bet with them. MY LADBROKES ACCOUNT IS NOW CLOSED.

William Hill offering bonus bets (up to $55) in races 1 to 4 this week at Randwick if your horse doesn't win but runs in the first half of the field. NSW only.

3 nine horse fields (2nd to 5th) and the 16 horse country championship.

Offer certainly available to residents other than S.A.  W.A. and NSW to a limit of $50.

I never get the difference Wenona why they post them separate  :shrug:

I haven't closed mine yet although every so often I go and check an odds boast before opting out. I've been holding out for something coming up so I can go whack and then close it on them.  ;)

I hope your plonk comes off Gintara. You have certainly put enough into the racing industry to get a well rewarded return. Good luck mate.

What a day for mad bookie to change over to a NT licence - they're unable to offer odds on the big Raceday at Randwick

Of course there is no mention of it on the website....... Very unprofessional!

There's so many promo's with bonus bets and money back on others it's nearly impossible to keep up  :shy:

Geez those assessors at Ladbrokes know what they are doing.

Their "Lay Of The Week" special, High Midnight bled and run last.

Too good for me  :wavecry:

I was mucking around with the Ladbrokes app through the week.

Without logging in I selected a dog and added the odds boast which went from $4 to $4.60 but if I logged in and applied it the same dog only went to $4.20

What a pathetic mob they are! This is customer service at it's finest, they are nothing but a disgrace.  emthdown

Interesting though I could apply the odds boost while being logged out then log in and the higher price would stay. Seems their little system can't handle that.  :nowink:

The same has happened to me countless times.

Apparently, the TAB are the only evil ones :no:

Exactly. You'd get that impression listening to some of the Corporate dogma that gets bandied about.

I think we have established beyond reasonable doubt that the corporates "control" what specials they give you, and to what degree.

If TABCorp are not allowed to merge with Tatts, Tatts will get swallowed up by a Corporate (probably Crown Bet given the strings Packer can pull) and there will be one less player i.e. less competition and more of this stuff.

Funny how the Australian "Competition" Tribunal look like they are about to kill off Tatts Bet and the reduction in competition will just make it harder for the poor old punter.

If it is not some sleazebag wowser Senator from South Australia deciding that punters should get less, it is a government public sector department given too much power. And if you are guilty of the sin of winning, the corporates will clip your wings :wacko:
