From one day to the next I wasn't able to place bets of 10 Euro (or more) with 888 anymore, although I usually had placed 20 Euro bets (and higher) before. I guess this is what happens when a bookie thinks that you win too much or too many of your bets... My winning streak there actually was an unfortunate one (I do arbitrage and usually try to win with Betfair or keep it even), and I was really sad that 888 thus became useless to me. From an arbitrage point of view 888 was great as they sometimes are very slow (veeeeery slow); the highlight was when they missed a goal in live-betting... :D Nevertheless, I can't really say anything bad about them.

So i wasnt the only one who thought they were veeeery slow on the in-play betting. I won many times when they missed a goal and on many occasions also be up to 2 to 3 points late in a Tennis game!! On this aspect i cannot fault them lol

I have just made a deposit to my 888 acoount and the money went in as usual. As soon as i clicked on a bet it was telling me that the min bet stake was 0.00 and the max bet stake was 0.00. I telephoned them to ask what had happened and was told that i am no longer able to bet with them. When i asked why i was just told that it was a traders decision. I have since been able to withdraw what i just deposited. Has anyone else ever come accross this before? The only reason i can think of is that i have taken them for about 2k in the last 3-4 months. But on the other hand had i lost hundreds or thousands i am sure they wouldnt have closed my account when they were taking the money.
Would appreciate if anyone else has any idea why this has happened. Due to this i would not recommend them to anyone thinking of opening an account.

If you have an account with Blue Sq or had one in the past that was restricted or closed then you will have no chance of getting a bet on with them ; personally I was lucky - my opening bet with them won and so did my ' free bet ' - but that was the end of the account.
