    <br>Being one of the top 3 bookmakers in this country does anyone know the correct reason why they no longer have any prices shown on the oddschecker site?

    I’ve never used the oddschecker site but W/Hill still quote their odds on the readabet one at<br>http://readabet.bestbetting.com/<br>This is the site I use every day and I find it is very good and it is kept fairly up to date.

    I guess because they only lay the ones they’re biggest about and have to pay a slice of profits to oddschecker.

    Because it would make people realise how uncompetitive their prices are.

    I wouldn’t say Hills are uncompetitive but at least they’ll lay a proper bet. Betdirect laid me £32.40 on a 5-6 shot a couple of days ago. No wonder they’re going skint!

    Are you a losing punter with them?  Presumably restricting you is to stop them going skint!

    If he is a losing punter, they were very short-sighted, and he’d have just as much reason to feel aggrieved, wouldn’t he? I don’t really get your point.  

    If he is a winning punter with them, surely he has as much right to moan about them as they have to  limit his bet.

    they are still on bestbetting.com, a better site anyway. I’ve long thought that the fiddlers like uk betting, sporting odds and so on shouldn’t be allowed on these odds comparison tables as they won’t lay a decent bet.

    Bet365 have got a new system – every time I try to place an each-way double (not even on snide races!) it logs me out – true :)

    I’ve had a similar thing with PaddyPower, Mountie, and my bets are small potatoes for any bookie. But they don’t like to see a strong punt going on, on a horse they fancy.
