Thank you very much for your reply. I am from India, and did exactly like you said this morning, emailed them asking for their source. And as they got no source supporting their calculation, I am sure they would again comeback with a simple line saying the bet was calculated correctly. If I understand correctly, other sites like bet365, betway have a separate complaints department that deals with this sort of stuff and I cant find such on 1xtbet site.

The only reason I am using 1xbet is its easy to deposit here in india compared to other sites.
I use 1xbet for small bets because of the odds, and yes, they tend to do what @Spiersey told you in case you are having large bets with profits. If you keep a low profile and win low margins they usually comply with the withdrawal as long as you don't empty the account.

I've had mixed experiences with them, but as basically many people say in several forums, 1xbet is not good for big guns because they are not regulated in 99% of the countries, but rather for those small bets where they don't usually mind if you win some small amounts.

The likes of 365 are trading the games now. God, doesn't that feel like a big step back to normality?
Nah, it'll feel real when I start losing all my bets though :drool:

Not a clue where to put money, which teams be most out of form, any teams had a key player test positive during the lockdown, goals galore? Bore draws? Who knows?

From what I know, Bremen are apparently way behind other sites fitness wise. They tried to get the league pushed back further.

99% sure there will be great bets in play. It’ll be impossible to price all the games accurately pre game as there is too many variables given the long break and lack of match fitness.

Did they reply?

I’m busy tonight but I’ll have a look tomorrow and see what recourse Indian’s have in this case.

I’d avoid them from now on (unless no other option) the reason they are easy to deposit with is the reason they are also able to settle bets as they please. It’s the Wild West of online betting.

They didn't reply yet. Thanks again for your time :)

I would get away from them as soon as I set up my Skrill account which is the only way to deposit for us at the moment.

I smell more than usual underdogs results in the first two rounds. (might be wrong though)

Gone Bifrost vs Riddle @2.10, supposedly a lock says some norwegian e-sports experts...

Edit; Odds crushed looked good until it started and they lost 1-2...

apologies for the late reply.
I can’t find any real direction you can pursue out with 1Xbet themselves. They are a curacao license so they have no arbitration affiliate worth pursuing (the danger of using these companies). I’d just keep firing emails off to them and hoping you eventually get them to see sense. I always advise people strongly to avoid all of these bookmakers. Hopefully you manage to get paid.

This won’t help you of course, but if you are UK based, do not use any bookmaker that isn’t adjudicated by IBAS.

Has anyone used footballindex - the platform where you sell and bit players like stocks? Pros and cons?

I found it frustrating as the margins are so wide that your players need to go up a lot to cover them. It can happen easily enough but I tended to break even whenever I did it with one or two players doing well and 3 or 4 staying fairly level and losing any profit on the others due to the margin.

Looks like the previous Football Index link doesn't work, so I've started a thread in the Newbies for anyone interested. I've been a member of Football Index just over a year and definitely prefer it to traditional gambling. I managed to turn a 2k portfolio into 12k during that time (tend to focus on elite youngsters), which obviously helps. Assuming football returns and stays, there should be some very exciting times ahead on the platform!

It's in the general. At the rate you're going with your likes the link won't work for you until year 2101.

3-3 correct score at 12s worth a tiny bet in An Giang friendly.

fairly sure it is fixed for overs. Think it’s fixed for over 4.5 and most likely 5.5. They played a couple days ago and fixed a 3-3 draw, wouldn’t be surprised to see it happen again. Worth a tiny bet anyway. Odds been suspicious on overs all game.

It was down to 5.5 for 3-3 by the time I got on it but not too shabby.

Good man!

Was about to place a bet when the 4th goal went in, got pissed off and didn’t follow through. Feck. Fantastic tip.

Never in doubt:D pretty much every Viet friendly being traded now is fixed. Hard part is working out what for. Hopefully be another 1/2 over next few days.

Games a while away but on Leverkusen -1.5 @1.7+ v Saarbrucken in the cup. Think it’ll be 5-0 or something. Bigger handicaps worth a bet. It’s a massive gulf quality wise, would be a small bet in normal circumstances (no fans etc) but Saar can’t play any league games before it and can’t arrange friendlies either as it stands. Will be about 3 months since their last match bu the time it comes around and Lever will have played 6/7 games or something. Will be a ridiculous fitness gulf.

That sounds like safe gold. Hope Leverkusen don't save players in their programme. I'll put a decent amount on it.
