Anyone know if they have bookies in Spain? I'm in Santander for a few days and neither Bet365 nor McBookies will take my money, the sods. I know I could try going through a UK proxy, but I'm wary of dealing with money on them.

P.S. Paddy Power had no qualms taking money from a Spanish ISP.

If you have PayPal, use that to deposit into 365 via a proxy.

If you've got a anytime scorer bet and they score twice do you get double profit?

Not unless it's specified in some sort of promotion.

There's sometimes a market to bet on a player to score twice, or three times.

Do bookies share info? I've had accounts severely limited off boyles betfred and hills in past two weeks! Seems somewhat of a coincidence.

I was told by a guy who works for Bet365 in their Stoke HQ that they do. I can see how it could be in their interests to do it but I would have thought there was some data protection stuff to make it illegal. Maybe there's a sub clause in the conditions that nobody ever reads.

I've had accounts closed within an hour of opening before I'd even placed a bet. Hard to find another explanation for that.

What's the best bookies to ask to give you odds on something they don't have any markets on currently? I have done the request a bet with Sky Bet but I don't think they'll have got back to me by the start of the season(friday)

McBookies are very quick if you go on live chat. If it's a novelty bet William Hill are good, or used to be.

Quick one, stuck on the 4 teams on the weekday football type sheet in willie hills (never actually go in the bookies but was getting on the bus as thought why not) picked all 4 to win in 90 mins, but palace have come up as "WL" not "WLD" Have they accidentally put it through as "to qualify" or is it just a printing error? Seen as palace have decided to romp it home in extra time...

Looks like draw no bet maybe, as it is full time.

Iv a few questions

Is the commission on betfair 5% of your profit from a winning bet? How much does your account have to be in profit before you start getting the premium charges?

What's the commission on matchbook? Do matchbook have premium charges if your account is a certain amount in profit?

If they allow pros, arbers, don't limit players and have low margins (102%) I think - then how do pinnacle sports make money?

Until you earn 1,000 Betfair points to get you a discount.

Premium Charge, you have to have paid less than 20% in charges of the amount of your gross profit (commission paid is deducted from total winnings). There is a £1,000 allowance and any big win constituting over 50% of your profits is excluded. You have to have placed at least 250 bets also. For the "super" Premium Charge it is £250,000 in profit and 1000 total bets, with commission generated being less than 40% of your gross profits.

Basically not something to worry about until you are several thousands in profit.

What's the commission on matchbook? Do matchbook have premium charges if your account is a certain amount in profit?

1%,whether you win or lose. They actually used to pay layers 0.6% on certain markets like baseball in the good old days. No extra charges that I know of.

IIf they allow pros, arbers, don't limit players and have low margins (102%) I think - then how do pinnacle sports make money?

The margins and limits vary. When markets first open, the margins are higher and limits lower to allow the money to basically dictate where the market is set. I used to arb using Pinnacle extremely extensively going back a lot of years when bookmakers would take bets. I lost hundreds of thousands of pounds at Pinnacle because their markets were much more efficient than bookmakers who had static lines that their traders only altered manually. One decent-sized bet at Pinnacle will automatically shift their line. They make money by having efficient markets so that they are taking bets on all outcomes.
