Betfair scammed my 424 Dollars. Created account, verified it, deposited and played. Won 424 dollars and when I requested the withdrawal it said account closed. After 1 month they said my account was permanently closed and no funds would be given. Total funds scammed! They are saying I have multiple accounts which I don't have. I have even called over phone to confirm my identity. Totally scam. Feeling frustrated about my hard earned money :( 424 Dollar is a big amount for me.

Their exchange is very active, but their 5% commission is rather high. Their sportsbook is terrible as their margins are so high that there are always better options elsewhere. Should you happen to make money from their sportsbook, they will limit your maximum winnings to a paltry £2. 50. Use this one as an exchange only.

One of the best bookies in the world. I placed bets through their web site but web site was not fast and useful, I couldn't cash out bet easily, then my friend recommended me Betfair applications, if you want fast and useful bookie you have to use Betfair applications, now I can cash out bets directly and betting tool is wonderful. But betfair web site is not fast and useful. If you want to use this bookie, you have to use them through their applications not Betfair web site. Good luck.

They are running a real scam. You register fine but the problems begin if you win - they then ask you for ID before you can withdraw - no matter how many times you send ID they don't acknowledge it - then the expiry date for providing the ID passes and they keep your money. They let you deposit money with them without ID (surprise surprise) and then ignore you when you're trying to withdraw your winnings - therefore they get to keep your deposits AND your winnings. I told their customer services I think they are running a scam and they didn't even try to deny it. You'd be well advised to stay well clear of these crooks.

I've just closed my account with Betfair, I have been a loyal customer throughout until this point. Their lack of assistance to customers via their service centre is shocking. I personally place it down to arrogance. I made an error in the stake placement of a football bet. I called an hour prior to the start of the game to amend the stake or void the bet. As soon as I got through to the agent after holding in a queue his response was "sorry I'm having technical issues please call back". I tried to explain very briefly that it was essential I spoke to someone before kick off but before I could finish my sentence he cut me off and redirected me to the queue system. The sceptic in me suggests he didn't want to take the called and just wanted me off the phone. I then tried to get through a further 5 times but each time I had to hold and couldn't get through. I eventually spoke to an advisor at half time to explain the situation and the poor service I had received. The advisor was very pleasant and understanding but basically said their is nothing she can do other that pass it to the traders to look at. This isn't the 1st time I've had issues, each time you are promised a call back which never materialises. I am personally astonished that such a big company if not the leaders in the gaming industry have such a lack of empathy for their customers. I have deposited in excess of £4,000 in the last 6 months and that is how you get treated. As a result they have lost a customer down to their arrogance and sheer disregard for customers. On a positive note there are plenty of other betting companies that are happy to offer a good level of service and treat you like a valued customer.

Excellent odds on single wins especially when SP above 6/1. I have managed over 30/1 for horses with sp prices of 14/1 to 20/1. No issues at all with withdrawals. If backing straight win, definitely check out this site.

Fees for deposit (1,5% Visa, 2% Pay Pal), 5€ fee for withdrawal via bank transfer and 5% fees for winning. Enough said? One of the worlds leading bookmakers? Pah! If their name wasn't Betfair people would call it scam. A no go for me.

The Betfair, has a great advantage to more experienced players, where they bet in favor of some events. Also recently you have the option to terminate a bet when intending to ensure profit, or minimize a loss. Withdrawals are processed quickly.

One of the best bookies out there. Well sign up bonus is not good. They could only provide me maximum sign up bonus of $10 for using betfair (not exchange). But account verification was quick. We can withdraw the money just by verifying identity, no need of address verification. Cashout and ACCA Edge options make this bookie a must join.

Stay clear off this site. They have had thousands of my money through the years yet the customer service they give is absolutely awful. You are not permitted to speak to management about anything. There was even a time when you could win on their slots but like the rest they have since rigged them to the nines. To add to that their Cash Out service hasn't worked properly for tennis games for ages and they told me they would improve it but they have done nothing to change it. Absolute joke of a site. I say this and hope that it stops even a few of you wasting your well earned cash with them. Don't be fooled.

Betfair no doubt the world's best bookmaker, offers betting against other players and also have the cash out option, terminating your bet in the middle of the game to make a profit, or minimize a loss. Recommended to new players.

Betfair is one of the exchange bookies. This bookmaker is very popular, because you can place a lot of thousands pounds on only one bet. You have a chance to win a lot. The back and lay opportunity make it an exciting this site. They keep 5% in the winning bet, but it's not a serious problem.

Betfair, one of the very old houses and well known in the market because in addition to offering a large number of various games for gambling, has its great advantage for sports trade, bet for and against, and close the bet during the game. Withdrawals are processed very rapidly, taking about 24 hrs.

Client for 10 years, today out the blue they asked to provide ID as someone else was 'linked' to my account, they would explain any further saying it was for my protection. I closed the account as I don't trust Betfair with my passport.

As soon as you figure out how to make money, they are going to restrict your account. And you will only be able to bet a paltry 3-4 euros. If you want to lose money, this is a great site. If you think you can win without getting restricted, do not join this site.

A good start but they restricted my account for an undisclosed reason. And the interesting part is I wasn't even making money. I was going at a loss when they did this. Extremely disappointed. They don't even have the decency to tell you why they are restricting you. And this restriction is forever!

Placed a bet on their new acca edge option which is a minimum of 5 selections. Basically if you get one selection incorrect, you get your money back. The only catch appeared to be that I had 7 selections which was about a 11/1 return, and with the acca edge it was reduced to 8/1, which is to cover their liabilities. One game was cancelled due to rain, anyone who bets knows the remainder of the bet will continue. All the games came in, the final game was 0-0. I did not even bother looking at cash out because, I knew I had my money back because of the acca edge option. The game ended 0-0 and when I went to see my balance, my stake was gone. Reason, acca edge bet voided. The information box that stated the deal, never mentioned no void option. But as soon as it comes to collect, they hide behind terms and conditions. Beware.

In my eyes Betfair is maybe the best company for betting. They offer something which the others missed. You can make great offers especially on weaker divisions where every info is big advantage. The low odds on this site doesn't mean this is the real chance to become reality. I have won some times on matches from Estonia when everyone goes to 1. 3 for underdog team.

In my opinion it is the best bookmaker on the market nowadays. Although they have no welcome bonus, the margins are so small, which makes this company incomparable to another company. Very good site with great withdrawal times.

Betfair is a weak bookmaker due to its poor and very very small bet LIMITS, I'm registered with this bookmaker for over 2 years now, everyday they keep limiting and limiting my account, they are too wicked, they hate and dislike professional betters and winners, they limited my account from over $1000 to $100 to $82 to $30 to $8 to $1. 80 to $0. 30. For me Betfair is the most wicked and heartless bookmaker, if you win 2 times and loose 1x, they will limit your account immediately, saying it's TRADERS DECISION, depositing and withdrawal is ok.

Betfair is a well-known home because professional bettors make trades. I had little experience on the site, payments are made very fast, and there are plenty of choices for betting, but I do not particularly like their site's interface.
