Bookies limits

Fri May 06, 2011 9:43 pm

Hi,
I've been toying with the idea of trying to make a living from arbing and have done a fair bit of reading on the subject over the last month or so. I have registered for probably around 10 bookmakers so far but have not placed any bets yet. The things I've read about getting limited by bookmakers is a bit off putting and I imagine demoralising once it happens. I just wanted to ask you all if I was to place bets with a total value of around £100 (say £60 with one book and £40 with the other) and kept to those rough values would that still lead to books limiting me? Also I have read the bookies info sections both on here and another forum but I read conflicting information about books that do not impose limits. Can anyone tell me some books that will not limit me? I know pinnacle, betfair, betdaq are pretty safe bets along with maybe SBObet but can anyone offer any more to the list? Thanks for taking the time to read this

apart from bf, betdaq, pinny and some asian books.
theres no others that will not limit you to some extent.
They just do it in different amounts and different times.

Thanks for the quick reply. Will the normal books still limit me even betting as little as £40-£60 per bet?

£40-60 would keep you under the radar for longer. Some bookies would still limit you at some point.

Placing arbs of a total amount of £100 would not get you very far profit wise, as your expected return on each bet, would be around 1.25-2%. You have to make a hell of a lot of arbs to make that worth while!!
