Also, today went to a whole new level.

I tried to place a $200 bet. It told me "winning liability exceeded" or "betting limit exceeded". Words to that effect.

I then tried for $100 - same thing.

I then tried for $50 - bet went on straight away. I then placed another $50 on that same selection and the bet went through to a betting manager for approval. The bet was accepted, but the odds changed as a result.

Hopefully this is just limited to NBA player props.

I guess I won't really know if this will be ongoing until I deposit money into an EBT and perhaps use a different venue. As my previous post suggested, maybe they actually have tracked betting patterns and realise I often scan winning (traceable) vouchers to apply credit to EBTs at a couple of venues at similar hours of the day. I am guessing it would be a lot less common for people to use an EBT at 8AM as opposed to 1PM, so from their perspective it would be a lot easier for them to trace.

I also have a theory that if they really wanted to go hell for leather on investigating betting patterns using an EBT, they could follow up with the venue to obtain CCTV footage so they know what I look like. It's unlikely they would go to those lengths, but it's not something you can completely rule out.
They 100% have, and do obtain CCTV footage to identify retail punters. Most often due to promo abuse and they want to identify punters placing multiple tickets on ‘one per customer’ promotions.

If you are using the same 2-3 venues for the same style bet (player props) they can wind down the liability limit on those bet types at those venues. Add in the fact that NBA props already have low limits as the volume of markets they offer vs. the amount of manpower they put into managing those markets means they aren’t willing to risk much on those bet types.

Betfair is disappointed to announce that as a result of the National Rugby League (NRL) moving to a turnover product fee model, it is now the most expensive sport in the world. Consequently, the Market Base Rate (MBR) will be increased to 6%. This MBR change also applies to futures markets.

Betfair lobbied the NRL to reconsider this change but were unsuccessful. We will continue to work hard so that we can provide the best possible value to our customers.

AFL Remains Unchanged
In positive news, the AFL MBR will remain at 2.5%. We’re thrilled that Australia’s most popular football code remains Betfair’s cheapest product, with arguably the lowest take out in the industry.
Why is it that every product that comes out of NSW thinks it is entitled to more? Victoria do it right.

When your state is in bed with the TAB that's how they roll.

Next time they flick a Victorian group race to Sky 2 to make space for the gripping Singleton dogs maiden on Sky 1 just nod

Understood and wholeheartedly agree re: Sky & TAB but now it is creeping over to their sport. What a cesspool state.

NRL markets aren't a concern for me but what is worrying is this will start a trend of other local sports leagues asking for more.

Peter V’Landys has done as much as possible to destroy betfair at RNSW, and now he’s doing the same as ARL commissioner. Disgraceful decision from someone firmly in the Tabcorp/Sky monopoly pocket.

The stupid thing is corporate turnover drops whenever there is a betfair outage as punter confidence drops, and traders can’t invest. Then the smug prick has the audacity to publicly criticise betfair after the increase is announced.

As of last week, I noticed a bet that I placed using an EBT was rejected. The odds on that selection were then adjusted. That's the first time I had encountered a bet being rejected on an EBT.
Found this tonight when trying to place some bets on an AFL market at the TAB. Initial bet of $X was accepted and then trying to bet the same amount again was rejected and they wound the odds in before letting me on for the rest of what I wanted to bet, all three bets of which had to go for manual approval and took 15-25 seconds for them to sign off on.

Have never encountered that prior to March.

Unrelated to the above has anyone been capped on Beteasy for sports before? Promos aside.
Beteasy doesn't cap you. Absurd that you would even consider the possibility that this happens.

Could you imagine the backlash if corporate books actually limited you?

Assuming you're not serious there's plenty of stories on here of people being capped but I haven't seen anything of late of people being capped on Beteasy hence the question.

Yep as Crownbet they capped me for Sports betting really quickly. Depending on the odds every bet I have is reviewed by a trader and will be limited by stake between $49 and $2 depending on the day. This as continued with them rebranded as Beteasy.

Racing they seems to be more generous.

I've inadvertently answered my own question and am now capped at Beteasy on sports.
