Ladbrokes myth

Do Lads really shut accounts after they generate a bit of profit?

Not so far for me, and strikes me the only evidence they do on this forum is by someone trying to sell a system.

The execution is unreliable and there are periods where they don't accept any bets at all for no apparent reason.
Everyone gets this however, including the CA lot.

Overall they are fine and pay out fast.

Dont kid yourself.
All the bookies allow punters to win a certain amount.
Keep your winnings small and they will tolerate you as a minor parasite.
Start making too much and they will take steps to reduce your profits.

Hi Fantasy trader,

Lad does not close the account. However, they will reduce your bets to 0 dollars, which means you can't even lay a bet on Fixed Odds betting but you can still access the sports and casino betting features.

donaldduke is right and I've made a little over the limit per head that they shut me out from fixed odds betting. My account is still opened, but rendered no use since I can't bet! arrgh. Therefore I closed it.

Re: Ladbrokes

Yes they do shut you down. When they first started fixed odds on the markets it was great, they would approve each trade in a nano second so you could cover yourself when the market went against you. But if you make too much they reduce your bet to below the minimum so you can't place bets.
Now it's even worse. I have a friend who still uses it and all she gets is trade cannot be approved in time, price is no longer valid. I don't know why Ladbrokes just don't shut the site down.
Anyone else with similar experiences.

Me too....It happened just two days ago. They are "doing" me with that bet approval time...same error: "Bet can't be approved in time, price is no longer valid".

I was surprised, so I went down to my friend who also have a Lads account. We logged in with his account and markets worked fine, bet was accepted in nano-second. Anyway, when I logged in with mine account, same errors started. I simply can't place a bet. After that, we again logged in with his and everything was working fine.

I can't say anything bad about Lad's except that, they were paying fast and secure. And they didn't cancel any of my bets. But...why they just don't say: "Sorry, son, but you simply can't place a bet here anymore." . They can do that by Terms&Conditions...it would be much civil....

P.S. I'm from Serbia, so I thought they were concerned because of my county, but my bank and VISA are from Austria. I was relieved when I read that you all have this problem with them. It's only about my returns... I'll close my account eventually...

All bookies have always shut down winning accounts or made them impossible to use.Spread betting comps are much more tolerable as they can lay off. Betfair is useless as there is no volume. Your best chance of getting 5 mins bets on is with binarybet or betsfor raders who hvae a large margin of profit (53/43)17%. Personally i beleive ladbrookes only want losing punters on their site and will keep going while more keep joining

What is to stop you simply resetting your IP address, and setting up a new account using a new DOB and address (and possibly even a different name)? AFAIK, it wouldn't even be illegal to do so, as you are not depriving Ladbrokes of revenue since you could have placed the same bet in person in one of their shops.
