Canbet has this irregular play rule:

"Before any withdrawals are processed, play will be reviewed for any irregular betting patterns e.g. placing of equal or zero margin wagers which all shall be considered irregular wagering for bonus wagering requirements. Other examples of irregular betting for wagering requirements include, but are not limited to, placing single bets using the entire (or majority) of your account balance on a single bet, where the majority of that balance is made up of bonus balance."

I know this issue has been brought up before but I thought reputable sites had stopped using this ambiguous rule. Would the Canbet rep care to clarify this rule "...placing single bets using the entire (or majority) of your account balance..."? Does it mean you can never bet more than 50% of your balance? i.e. if you have $5 you cannot bet more than $2.50?

Doesnt Canbet have a online chat rep you can speak with to clairfy this?

it seems you know anyway, basically you are right- nothing over 50% to be placed on a single bet using the bonus funds, I would say your own applies to this aswell if your using a bonus.

The stupodity of this rule was illustrated a while ago in a player dispute with the Palace Group. They voided a withdrawal, but argued it was a SMALLER wager at the end of a losing streak that was the violation, and not far BIGGER wagers early on.

The stupidity is again demonstrated in this example over a paltry $5 balance. What if the $2.50 bet lost, the next would have to be $1.25, and then 62c, 31c, etc...... otherwise the rule would be breached. It would technically be IMPOSSIBLE to bust out without making an "irregular bet" as the last one, which might WIN, and start a winning streak.

Palace group saw sense, and changed the rule to 25% of STARTING bonus balance, so that at some point, when your entire balance dropped to 25% of the initial bonus granted, you COULD make one last bet and either win, or bust out.

Canbet could do this, or limit the rule to balances above a certain level so as to avoid impractically small bets being made.

Does anyone know if CK - Schalk is the Canbet rep? I sent him a pm on the 3rd of May about this issue but haven't gotten a response.
