Today in our cricket betting tips post, we will talk about the reasons why a bookie blocks you. Something that people who are not familiar with online betting may not know is that some bettors can be blocked, restricted and even have their accounts closed by bookmakers.
Of course, all online sports betting or online casino sites have that ace up their sleeve: among their rules there are clauses that allow them to restrict when they deem it.
It is written in that series of agreements, terms, conditions, rules and regulations that we should read before, when we register.
What to know about blocking in Gambling Houses:
Why does it happen, that is, why online bookmakers can restrict a bettor or close some account?
How to prevent one or the other from happening?
When that has happened, what can the bettor whose account is restricted or closed do?
In this article we will try to answer these questions and give some recommendations to prevent this from happening.
Why can some accounts be blocked or closed?
These are some of the reasons why online bookmakers keep a close eye on some accounts and scrutinize "suspicious" and offending customers.
Although paradoxical, if you are betting online in a too smart, almost infallible way, winning more than the online bookmakers want or desire, you are undoubtedly using a system (nobody is that lucky in their plays, or at least that's what the bookmakers think); therefore, closures or lockouts seem inevitable.
However, there are companies that have different policies, for example, Pinnacle Sports is an exception: it invites winners and does not discriminate or close the accounts of successful players.
Also known as surebet, arbitrage consists of betting on all possible outcomes of an event (in soccer: win, draw or loss), which eventually translates into winning in all cases.
This is achieved by taking advantage of the fact that different online bookmakers often offer different odds for the same event.
Sudden changes in online betting patterns
A bettor who has always preferred soccer suddenly makes a big play on horse racing and, not only that, wins a lot of money, to say an example, is going to stand out and generate a red flag from the online bookmakers' point of view.
Abuse of promotions
It is not uncommon for bettors to create several accounts, or register on pages, several times, using false names or profiles, in order to take advantage more than once of the famous welcome bonuses.
If the online bookmaker detects or rather verifies this situation, it immediately closes the account. Online bookmakers like bettors who take advantage of free promotions, but not those who abuse them and their benefits.
There are situations where bettors, for example, have registered with a false identity to bet online from a country where it is illegal or restricted to do so (or where there are exchange controls).
A person who violates a law in his or her country may cause the company problems, penalties or limitations in the long run to obtain a license, for example.
Your IP address may be unknowingly flagged for some reason, either because people close to you have made an inappropriate play from your computer (as discussed in the preceding points) or because of a history of previous events.
Then, the online bookmaker can block any operation or account opening, restrict activity or close an account. This not only affects current users, but future accounts may be rejected.
