I have to say I'm impressed with BET365.

They'll take a decent bet online and are progressive in offering very competitive place odds and guarantees regarding SP etc.

I think the marketplace is better off having them about.

Small punters should be having field day.

Waterhouse lets you bet on his mums horse and gives you your money back if it loses, Betstar lets you have $50 on all the Group 1's at double the odds, IAS will double your winnings on selected races for between $50-$200 etc, Lux will give you a $100 free bet for a $50 bet etc.

They have been taking good bets on the antepost Melbourne Cup markets for a number of years, I hope your wrong.

He offered a $25 refund  :shy:

That says it all about these corporate  :censored: .

What? Why knock the bloke - he's offering a free $90 to every client if his mother's horse wins the Caulfield Cup - what's your problem?

Really?

I have seen very few antepost markets worth betting into in recent years.

Having aid that, I did back Proisir early for a small amount

Do you think Tom is going to let Zeljko on for his free $90?

Of course not!!

He, like all the corps will let any mug on as long as they prove they will end up behind  :yes:

First sign of a winner  :wavecry:

And good luck to you Wenona   emthup

Generally, I like to know everything in front of me before backing a horse, so antepost is not really a priority for me.
It costs me in some instances, but saves me in others.

DJH, have you been on leave?

Several of us have been singing the praises of Bet65 on here for weeks.  :bulb:

I think it was arakaan who said if ya can't win betting with them, you have NO hope.  And he's right.

I got $7 fixed on a dog yesterday the drum.  It paid $2 on the totes.   :lol:

And they can be a little tardy to react ... which is a trait we should all love in a corporate.   emthup

I was initially disappointed when they set up an office in Australia as I thought they may be more alert, I still had fond memories of them betting me $51 eachway Maluckyday in the Melbourne Cup as he crossed the line winning the Hotham two years ago.   :yes:

DD,

I only look at select threads on here.
Apparently the Bet365 thread hasn't been one of them  :shy:

As I have said, I doubt they will continue with their generosity.



BTW just thinking about it, the last decent antepost bet I had was when Lotteria ran 2nd in the Cox Plate.
Hopefully Proisir can go one better, although I may well trade that bet yet

Indeed while I was banned in the end at least they let me get out of there with over $15k before they shut it all down.

Better than most would let you win I expect.

Have plans for another raid when I have the time using diff address and Ip's etc.

I figure they at least track the accounts at that basic level.

I'd probably change my log-in, too.    :lol:

I have a few bets on trots and dogs.  That will put them off the scent, surely?
