isservilles, with all the respect, I cannot get the idea from what you posted. Maybe you can repeat in other words.

i think that 10 pounds is more like 1 pounds on some popular odds and 3 to 4 pounds on some less popular but never above 5 pounds.
account with 188bet is just useless after limit

If he had kept the topic in one thread instead of posting all over the forum it would be easier for us to follow.  

I believe what he is trying to say is that bookies have unfair terms that they cannot enforce upon us, even though we have initially agreed to be bound by those terms. Terms in question could be those that give bookies the right to confiscate balances, remove bonuses and associated winnings, void bets, even limiting and closing accounts.  In a sense bookmakers sell bets and they are in control of the price and quantity they wish to sell so refusing to “sell” to certain players is like a high-street merchant that would choose to whom to sell their products to. He thinks that's illegal.
From what I recall, pescu23 wrote to the gambling commission about this.Their response was that banks also can choose to whom to offer their products and in what terms( loans for example). It's definitively not as black as white as he thinks it is and the regulators cannot help you here.

In the UK the office of fair trade could provide assistance but I don't they would empathize very much with a gambler having his rights restricted. Maybe if you have a serious amount confiscated it's worth exploring this option. isservilles I think is not even an arber, and he just likes to make noise.
