With the huge sign-up bonuses, continuous rewards, and even better odds, it’s hard to think of a day when a bookie may close the door in your face. But that’s the thing. As much as bookies are willing to welcome you with open arms, they are also even more willing to get rid of you when you do not toe the line. Let’s look at some things you must avoid if you want to avoid facing this turn of events:
Have you ever lied about your age or location when joining a site? Many people do this. People under 18 years will pose as adults to get their hands on some good odds. At other times, people will lie about their location because gambling is illegal where they are. In essence, it means that you should not be accessing the bookie’s services, and doing so is in violation of its terms and conditions. It’s possible to remain on the site, pay via digital currencies and even withdraw your earnings without getting caught. But the day the bookie is on to you, there’s no way out, and you will end up losing your account.
Sometimes, punters try to cut corners by providing false papers when verifying their accounts. For example, if a bookie wants to make sure you come from a licensed region, they can ask for a utility bill. It’s quite easy to get one made using fake details and posing it as a legit document. Again, you can always get away with it. However, if in the future you are unable to provide the required information or the bookie comes across some oddities, you can land in trouble. In this case, you have to consider two options. If the information was falsified by intent, you will have to make do with losing your account. However, if you made a mistake when entering your details, you can contact customer support and get this sorted.
You probably know a punter who rarely uses their money to place wagers. Here’s the thing- many bookies often offer rewards to attract and keep their clients. Some punters use these rewards to place wagers, and as soon as they run out of bonus points, they stop playing and wait for the next reward. It looks like a great tactic, but as soon as the bookie realizes that you are not bringing in money, they will kick you out.
Have you ever wanted to make some quick bucks and decided to kill two birds with one stone? Well, in this case, you would be using two stones to kill one bird by opening more than one account with the same bookie. It makes sense, does it not? Consider a man who opens another account using his wife’s details. On paper, this looks like a great idea. However, some bookies frown upon such activities and may flag such an account.
Most bookies focus on the IP address, and if they figure that two accounts share such an address, it may be a cause for concern. Be sure to read the terms and conditions. If they state that a household can only have one account, please stick to that and avoid losing both accounts. While at it, disclose your online gaming sites to other people in your home to ensure you don’t end up getting flagged owing to mutual interest. You may find that someone else also likes using your bookie, which could raise concerns in the future.
