Just wondering if anyone can shed some light on an Irish customer trying to use Marathon Bet.
I can't sign up for an account as Ireland isn't on the country list and a lot of the arbs I see coming up use Marathon.
Would a VPN mask the IP if I was signing up and then if I deposit with Skrill would they flag it?
Any help appreciated here as my arb career ain't off to a great start if this book is excluded for me.
A VPN can show you coming from a different country but what country are you going choose on registration? And what address document are you going to send if they ask for that? You'll get caught out if you try to pretend you're from a different country.
I am surprised though that they don't accept customers from the Republic of Ireland. They brought in a similar tax to the UK point of consumption tax last year and Marathonbet still accept UK customers after that so it must be that they think the Irish market isn't big enough to justify adhering to these additional rules so have pulled out of Ireland. If you're on the .co.uk site then Ireland may not be listed so if that's the case try the .com site to see if it's listed there. Even if it isn't, I would contact them just to make sure they don't accept Irish customers as it seems a significant market for them to pull out of.
