    So, I was just looking around and this is something I noticed.

    For example, bet365 seems to be the most popular betting website out there. Though obviously some may disagree if that's the most popular one, but at the very least it sounds like one of.

    And if you look on Reddit or whatever, it gets absolutely GLOWING reviews and recommendations.

    But then you search a little deeper, you get this.

    https://ca.trustpilot.com/review/www.bet365.com

    Like, what to believe? That almost has 1500 reviews, most of which are negative, not just negative but really bad...like really really bad...it even looks like there might be a sherbro who left a review on the very first page too after getting shafted out of his winnings from Ngannou-Stipe 2 fight...

    I mean if that was an amazon product, who would buy a product with 1.4 review score from ~1500 reviews? That sounds like exactly what it is....

    But even on Sherdog, and reddit and what not, we get people singing bet365's praises...what to believe here?

    That seems like awful lot of people getting screwed over to just simply ignore and hoping for the best?

    I mean if it wasn't so freaking bad, then maybe it would be understandable, but the reviews, the reviews are just oh god awful.

    I wouldn't give bet365 YOUR money.

    There are a lot of outright shills and apologists out there for these online sportsbetting and casino sites. Evil lurks.

    bet365 is probably the best sportsbook outside the U.S, never had any problems with it

    Bet365 is easily the best book out there by a long shot and you will never have a problem withdrawing your money

    Bet365 will eventually limit you if you win long term,but I never heard of any case from the people I know that they didn't payout or used any kind of fraud.

    There is a very simple explanation for this.

    People will write reviews on sites like that solely to detail their bad experiences. People who have fine or good experiences with betting sites don't feel the need to run and write reviews for them.


    My only personal complaint about Bet365 is that they don't release props until a few days out from the fight, and have quite limited props available as well.

    Yeah but those reviews are of people, what I see anyways, who didn't get their winnings from bet365, whether it was frozen for no reason, account locked, etc etc...doesn't sound like it was a bad experience of betting, but just getting screwed over?

    Further criticism highlights repeated cases of Bet365 delaying or outright denying payment to winning players. For example, Bet365 was taken to court for refusing to pay over £1 million in winnings to a horse bettor in Northern Ireland in 2017.[20] The company refused a payout of £54,000 to a punter in England in 2016, a case which is still ongoing as of 2017.[21][22] In Australia, Bet365 froze the account and refused to pay a punter who had won around $200,000 AUD in 2016.[23] These are just some of the most noteworthy instances; several more cases of Bet365 refusing to pay winnings have been reported by gamblers on Internet gambling forums.
     
  14. Jesus christ dude members on here that use it for probably 100x your bankroll regularly told you it's legit.

    I don't use it, and I know it's legit.

    Seems like you're looking for reasons not to use it.

    All sportsbooks will get negative reviews from time to time, you're really reaching.

    Either use it, or don't use it. No need to make 20 posts on it.

    All right buddy, hope you are not gambling too much because you don't seem to have mental faculty to be able to count past 5.
     
  16. What exactly are you looking for with this thread? Are you hoping that someone that works at bet365 posts on here, and tells you that every bad review made about it is blasphemous?

    There's no perfect offshore sportsbook. But A LOT of people use b365, so of course there will be bad reviews every so often about it.

    However you have people in here vouching for it, and it's universally regarded as a solid book.

    Just shut the fuck up already weeb. This thread is about as useful to the world as your conception.

    Aside from this inbred idiot, since he sure likes to talk about conception and all, it sure seems like it's pretty split even on Sherdog.

  19. You're not going to find a single person that's going to come on here and shit on b365.

    You're legitimately wasting your time.

    Withdrawing a million from any book is going to present issues.

    So yeah, if you're betting 5 figures a night, be careful wherever the fuck you go.

    But I highly doubt you're ever going to have enough money in your bankroll for a huge book like b365 to give you issues.
