Such ratings can't be trusted. SBR is paid for ads by bookies, so it doesn't show real rating for those who pay them.

This is the correct attitude. Thank you.
You can ask in the forum, or use the search button. Most of the times there is information about a bookmaker, or, you can ask directly via pm people that might had an experience with a bookmaker.

Best to search/ask here.
That aside i always judge bookies by lines and markets they offer.If you open it and think oh i can take advantage of this market easily it should be a warning sign immeadiately.
Take marathon,1xbet,coral,ppower etc for example-with that lines of course youre bound to get limited or having trouble with payments

i think you are right about the obvious fantastic lines.

marathonbet and 1xbet seem to be the experts in offering wonderufl odds and then kicking you out like nothing after winning a few Euro.

Marathonbet limit is 1,- Euro stake on any bet and I didn't play or win much.

A realiable bookmaker will offer "fair" odds, maybe you should look at the jurisdiction or licence he is using.

It might be a good idea to set up our own rating system?

Arbusers (if not too much work) could make a locked thread with his rating of each - and when a forum member disagrees they would PM him with the reasons they think a rating is off, and he can update if he feels appropriate.

I am happy to help if needed in some way.

When we started our forum back in 2010, I compiled reviews for almost 70 bookmakers according to my own experience with them as a player. Later, we decided to remove these reviews from the forum to avoid disputes and time loss.
We will give it a thought and will look for multidisciplinary advice on this issue.

I know it's very outdated, but could you send this to me if you still have it?
Thanks.
