Betfair Casino has malpractice. Right now the software is addicted to losing player. I entered the site and lost 900 euros a day playing blackjack. The Dealer wins it always seemed to me very strange. I sent an email to the helpdesk to complain and request a refund of my money and said all bets were valid and that there was no error with the computer system and fecharama account.

Hello you,

I do not think people should be careful with Betfair based on your post. They are one of the biggest companies in the online gambling industry and I have no doubt that their software is fair. But yes, it is legitimate to be a bit careful when accepting bonuses there.

I would advise you not to use the Casinomeister forum as a trashcan in the future.

I totally disagree with you Rainmaker; I think all players should avoid BetFair like the plague!
They are a ROGUE casino! :mad:
Look on CM's Rogue List - 4th one from the top.

Yes, I know they got rogued after the big bonus screw-up. That is why I wrote that people should be a bit careful about accepting bonuses there. But the OP wrote that they had rigged games. I only said that I do not believe that their software is rigged.


And to you who gave me a neutral rep for my post ("you recomended a rogue site") : I did not recommend Betfair. As I said, I only told OP that the games at Betfair are not rigged.


So no, people should not avoid Betfair only because the OP lost his deposit. But yes, there may be other reasons why people should avoid them. (Betfairs rogue-status has nothing to do about unfair/rigged games.)

I had an issue with Betfair when I updated my debit card I won £400 and they wouldn't let me withdraw it as it was more than I had deposited... I email help no repsonse in the end I had to use the old debit card number before it expired at the end of the month. I haven't played there since they changed the games.

betfair

is not very strange play either in small amounts or large amounts and the dealer always win REGARDLESS of the type of play do you do? Always have the best hand. I find it very strange. And then the losses they had with the campaign which had the bonus of pgar many people is quite likely that they have begun to manipulate the game. But if I quisres esprimentar what goes there makes a deposit and play black jack or roulette and you'll see what happens to the money.

But if you want to try out what I enter there makes a deposit and play black jack or roulette and you will

Turn right, then right. then right again
@KK - to be fair, rainmaker was referring exclusively to the software being fair, which has never been questioned and is not the reason they are rogued.

Personally I wouldn't play there based on the bonus fiasco, and I am unanimous in that Mr Rumbold......

It would be interested if you could give us some proof that shows us that the dealer ALWAYS wins at Betfair.


Nifty, Yes I agree. I would not use Betfair either. They are messy.

Yes, I agree too.
Absolutely nothing wrong with the software - just the management are a few sandwiches short of a picnic... :p

How does a new user with only 5 posts neg rep a long term user? You can't thank someone until after 10 posts but can neg rep instantly?!?!:what::what:

Mistaken.....They have 10 posts and 5 thanks. Still think someone should have to be a member for a while and have more posts than 10 to neg rep someone.

How do you know who neg-rep'd him? :confused:
It wasn't OP, as rainmaker referred to him in the 3rd person here:

Who was neg repped and why?

I can't see anything here to warrant that.

Correct Nifty. As I wrote, the person gave me a neutral rep, not negative. He did it with the comment "recomending a rogue site". The comment was unfair, since I clearly did not recomment Betfair. I only wanted to give a response to his comment, not to make a case out of his neutral rep. A neutral rep is no big deal :)

If you look at RainMakers profile and select 'reputation' you can see who gave a reputation and if there was a reason given. This one was given by a new user called ericlee who joined in june 2011.

Wasn't trying to make a big deal out of it!:oops:

Just shocked me that someone could Neg rep you for your comment.(Knew it was neutral but to me that is still just as bad!) Then found out that they were new to CM and I guess it irked me a tad!:rolleyes:

Is it possible that he could only give neutral rep given his post / rep count?

Jose.You are probably better off saving that type of money for the brick and mortars, if you can't find a good website to gamble online blackjack on.

You could check out Red 32 and other casinos online that would give you a fair shake, no matter what denomination you're betting.

Keep in mind that most blackjack games online, keep you in the neutral shoe.

You may want to play baccarat, can be an easier game to win at, than blackjack.

This all happened in the same month! Extra careful.


Betfair is in for a rough ride over data theft*
30 Sep 2011*

Betfair will only refund bets in jackpot error*
28 Sep 2011*

Betfair 'removed £52,000 from account'*
23 Sep 2011*


While I'm not disagreeing with the above, as they have been reported elsewhere here at CM, if you want to make a post like that, please site your sources in future posts to lend validity/credibility to such sweeping statements.

Welcome to CM:)
