    Leaving out the exchanges, how many times have you taken advantage of the bookmakers guarantees Cav?

    Try getting a bet on the EP’s for Ladbrokes Sportium in Spain — I’ve been knocked back for €10 EW at 11/2 and €10 win at 4/1 — an absolute disgrace.

    I’ve never tried any of these offers, Yeats. I’ve only one bookmaker account, that’s with PP, the vast majority of my punting has always been on the exchanges. I’ve barley had a bet all year, too many distractions in the real world in 2018 so far. Coral/Ladbrokes excepted, all the other firms are relatively new to the minimum bet game.

    I’m probably as curious as you are as to what punters actual experience with these offers are?

    Sorry for your troubles in Spain, Dahlia. The Coral/Ladbrokes offer is UK shops only.

    All bookmakers are crap here in Spain Dahlia.

    I’m only doing exchanges.

    Hi Viktor,

    The problem here in Spain is you are unable to access the Exchanges for horse racing purposes as far as I know. I used to be able to until June 2012 when the Spanish Govt decided to regulate all UK bookies with joint Spanish partnership. BF have a presence here but only for sports book betting (i.e. their fixed odds) and they’re just as bad.
    Cheers.

    Viktors — I would imagine you’re referring to VPN’s which friends have told me about. The problem here as far as I can see is that you require PoA (a UK address such as bank statements, utility bills, council bills etc) which I don’t have. I will be moving back to the UK but not for a few years.

    You could easily get a matchbook account and no need for PoA, if you want details write me a PM
