    I have not heard bad thing about Betway, easy to to deposit but maybe not so easy to withdraw.
    I was betting $500 at start, bet the whole balance at one point $657 something, I really don't known what is betway limit is. Not even 1 week, I am limited to $178 base win....oh ok, that reasonable, I can still get excite betting that amount. Not even few days have passed the limit is drop down to $6.12, even less than bet365 limited of $10 cdn. That is fine but how do I clear a $309 bonus with $4607 playthrough remaining? So my last bet, the maximum I can cleared is $3.06 out of $4607, awesome!

    Being a professional mma gambler is a myth unless you can beat Pinny, Betonline, or Bookmanker. Other site will put so much parameter on their customer, they be lucky to get their deposit back.

    Or you know, just don't use a bonus.

    I had the same thing happen to me, 12k playthrough.

    You live and you learn.

    Any site offer 'cash out' is shady as f*ck.
    cash out = cancellation fee of 20%
    Those scam site have the audacity of paying advertisement that 'cash out' is a good thing. No legit site like Pinny, Betonline, bookmaker, 5dime offer that, they respect their customer base.

    Your pc is not responsive , it is slow as f*ck, they hope you miss click to free roll your bet out of 20% without taking any risk. Any site offer 'cash out' and it can't not be disable, stay far away.

    Not sure about anyone else, I for one would appreciate a dedicated thread for bookies and our experiences with them, maybe even a sticky thread

    I've found a few that should never be trusted, be good to share our experiences, warn others

    Sorry to hijack GigaOuts, never used betway

    Yeah I've been watching MMA for way too long, and I got into it rather late(2005).

    Sucks that your rollover is that big, but just be smart -- the fact that mine was a few grand more than yours made me get tilted and lay my whole bankroll on a -800 to satisfy the rollover...and they lost.

    This was years ago, it is what it is, learned a good lesson.

    Not sure what year it was, maybe even before 2000. I recall going to Block Buster seeing few ufc on vhs, it look like real fighting but with a ref. It is so awesome when there is no time limit and everything is legal except eye crouching. I fall in love, I didn't known how to make copy of it so waste a bit of money renting ufc over and over again on vhs. I was able to predict how the fight goes, make pretty accurate prediction. I didn't known you could actually able to make bet on ufc fight. My first bet is $800 on Nick Diaz vs P.J. Penn at even odd, I knew Penn will gas after winning first round due the pace Nick like to put on his opponent. Wow, 1 click of the mouse is the same pay as working at Sobey warehouse for 2 weeks. Mma betting is for me.

    I think it come to a conclusion, the 'bonus' playthrough requirement disappeared! My balance and available for withdrawal is the same. Now I just have to wait my 2 pending to settle and cash out my balance. Betway did the right thing to waiver the rollover since they won't let me bet mma anymore.

    Thanks to forum like this and SBR, posting Betway wrong doing by site like this help a lot.
    Betway came to their sense and waiver the rollover play through and painless fast payout.
