Ladbrokes / fobt

1 Maidenhead, England, Berkshire, United Kingdom Review updated:

I do not believe that the roulette fixed odd machines are random.When I complained to the gambling commission they told me that I had to complain directly to Ladbrokes - how far is that going to get me ?
Using the same betting methods I use in a casino I lost 10 successive times & it is remarkable how the areas of my strongest bets were consistently missed.Something is definitely suspicious.
When I leave a casino and have lost, at least I don't feel cheated.

    Why bother complain? Everything about ladbrokes seems to stink. The fact that brits are standing in line has nothing to do with their integrity. The Queen has massacred, raped and looted in the name of the crown and she'ss still standing. Keep gambling at Ladbrokes suckers!

    A fight broke out at Ladbrokes...one observer intimidating a gamer. Couldn't believe the passivity of the staff. They just sat by and watched... when I asked them why they didn't take any action. They said it was just a brotherly spat!!! I will never go back

    THIS APPLYS TO TELEPHONE BETTING OVER THE PHONE!!!
    When u win big do not let Ladbrokes keep ur winnings in ur internal fund as the more money they have the more interest they get from ur cash, when u win they will keep it within ur account in an internal fund instead of diverting back to the bank...

    They say this is beacause its easier to transfer bets straight from internal instead of goin back and forward to ur bank account, crap the more money in the ladbrokes pot the more interest they make ON UR MONEY!

    I WAS OVERDRAWN WITH THE BANK BECAUSE THEY HAD OVER £400 IN MY INTERNAL FUND ACCOUNT WITH IN LADBROKES, AND THEY DECLINED TO PAY MY OVERDRAFT CHARGE, WHICH I WOULDN'T HAVE GOT IF THEY HAD PUT IT BACK WHEN THE BET WON OF COURSE!!!

    I HAVE NOW OPENED AN ONLINE ACCOUNT WITH WILLIAM HILL, GREAT SITE WITH NO PROBLEMS, AND U CAN KEEP AN EYE ON UR MONEY TRANSFER WHEN AND WHAT U LIKE

    Ladbrokes - Not paying out winnings
    Ladbrokes
    Scotland, Lothian
    United Kingdom

    Mt friend put a bet on David Wotherspoon scoring first goal for Hibs v Hearts. The goal was originally not paid out as the goal was given as an own goal. The referees report has now credited Wotherspoon with the goal but Ladbrokes refuse to pay out. They say they go with what the press say but what press??

I am not very happy with the way Ladbrokes have handled the situation. .

    I was at Ladbrokes today I spent £200.00 on roullette on the middle column only with bets ranging from 20.00 to 60.00 a spin and not once did it come in a complete scam these machines at the betting shop my odds were 2 to 1 not a sausage stay away from them there are a con and highly rigged stick to traditional betting I hope they get banned by the goverment they are owned by global draw and can not be bought the company hires them out to bokmakers a complete 100% scam

    while in Ladbrokes a guy comes to the machine I am playing covers both red and black then correctly predicted the next 5 numbers, he tells me that the machines are rigged and he knows how they work at which point the staff force him out the door saying he is banned for life and the next step is calling the police.

    These fobt are rigged they don't pay out fair !! I've lost thousands on these machines seen bs numbers come out like the post said the ball dances around ur big bets and sucks all your money til its all gone these machines need banning as they are rigged against the player which in my eyes isn't fair as we are told their random when cleArly they are fixed only to pay out a small amount thurs keeping the bookies in profit and the punter a loser then when they need to pay out its a joke and never over the amount put in . I just watched 1000 pound being robbed by a machine within 20 minutes all gone hmmm bad luck no bs machines

    I agree these are rigged even more now the tax on fobt went up these machines are not random they are designed to robb money from bs results like post said before 2 to 1 odds and u still lose no matter how much money u put in seen a guy lose 1000 pounds in 20 minutes 6 dead spins at 100 each spin then 1 winner of 230 then another 5/6 deadspins And I mean dead he only had abt 7 numbers not covered and they hit 5 of them and even one number came up 3 times in 5 spins sadly this man lost, he laughed at me when I went mad abt losing 60 pounds in 15 minutes every spin was a lose until I stop myself as I could of put in another 160 and still wud of lost. 100000's of people are all feeling the same pain why if its ment to be luck??? Rigged ### and it seems if u pay the govrnmnt enough money they will let you robb the public

    I totally agree with all the above. In the past 10 days I have loosed over 1400 by covering group numbers and sections. Not once did any high amount cash bets paid out. In my opinion the random numbers generated remover the numbers where high stakes are and if one is lucky gets paid out on low stakes bet. Indeed I have seen where 34 numbers have been bet on and the two where no bets came in three times in a row. For me I shall never play them again and advise others to do the same

    Yes these machines are a complete cheat. I play Blackjack and can see the cheating patterns. Dealer nearly always get's a 10 for his face up card, whilst I'm left with poor cards totaling 4, 5, 6, 12, 13, etc.
    When I do get 20, so the dealer...or 21 or Blackjack. You rarely get Blackjack yourself, usually an Ace followed by a low card. When you want a small card, you always get 10...when you want a 10, you always get a small card.
    I'm done with these things...but some of them certainly need investigating. It's too often to be just bad luck.

    MACHINES ARE CONTROLLED. THEY ALSO MONITOR WHO IS COMING INTO THE SHOP AND KNOW FROM PATTERN WHO PLAYS HIGH STAKES. AS SOON AS YOU WALK IN THEY CLICK ON THEIR SYSTEM TO TRIGGER THE SIGNAL TO MAINFRAME SYSTEM ABOUT THE PRESENCE OF THIS PERSON. AS SOON AS YOU START PLAYING NO MATTER WHAT YOU TRY IT WILL TAKE OFF A FEW HUNDRED POUNDS FROM YOU AT THE START. THIS GETS THE GAMBLER AGITATED. SO THE MACHINE PACIFIES AND PAYS BACK EITHER SAME AMOUNT OR JUST ABOUT TO WHAT THE GAMBLER HAS BET. BECAUSE OF THE FRUSTRATION AND LOSS THE GAMBLER TRIES TO RECOVER AND THEN YOU LOOSE IT ALL. TO RECOVER AGAIN THE GAMBLER PUTS MORE MONEY IN. THIS GOES ON. I TRULY BELIEVE THIS PATTERN IS RECORDED AND A TRIGGER FUNCTION IS INITIATED BY THE PEOPLE WHO WORK IN THE SHOP. THIS IS NOT GAMBLING BUT CHEATING IN BROAD DAYLIGHT.

    I ALSO TRULY BELIEVE THE PEOPLE WORKING IN SHOPS SHARE THIS INFORMATION ABOUT THE PERSON WITH THEIR COLLEAGUES IN DIFFERENT SHOPS. AS SOON AS YOU LEAVE ONE AND ENTER ANOTHER THEY ALREADY KNOW. IF NOT ALREADY INFORMED THEN THE PHONE RINGS AS SOON AS THE GAMBLER STARTS WINNING. THIS PHONE CALL IS FROM THE CENTRAL SYSTEM OR FROM SHOP TO CONFIRM THE IDENTITY OF THE GAMBLER. IF CONFIRMED IT IS THE SAME GAMBLER THE TRIGGER IS PUSHED AGAIN.

    FOR EXAMPLE, I WAS IN ONE OF THE SHEFFIELD SHOPS NEAR CITY CENTER. THERE WAS AN AFRICAN AMERICAN YOUNGISH LADY WORKING IN SHOP. I PLAYED IN ANOTHER LADBROKES SHOP NEARBY AND LOST. SO I WENT IN TO TRY MY LUCK IN ANOTHER. I STARTED WINNING THERE. AS SOON AS I REACH MY RECOVERED LOSS AMOUNT THE PHONE IN SHOP RINGS. I CAN UNDERSTAND THAT IT COULD BE A CALL FROM CUSTOMER OR FOR SOMETHING ELSE. BUT THERE WAS NO ONE IN SHOP. I WAS THE ONLY CUSTOMER AND IT WAS ABOUT 9 pm. I STOPPED AND LOOKED AT HER AS SOON AS SHE PICKED UP THE PHONE. SHE STOPPED TALKING AND WENT INTO THE BACK OFFICE. CAME BACK AND THEN ASKED ME WHY I AM LOOKING AT HER. I DID NOT SAY ANYTHING AND STOPPED THE GAME. AS SOON AS I DID THAT SHE WENT BALLISTIC AND STARTED TO TALK AGAIN ABOUT ME LOOKING. SHE JUST GAVE IT AWAY. I JUST LOOKED AT HER AND LEFT. FOR ME I AM PRETTY SURE THIS IS RIGGED AND CONTROLLED "COMBINATION OF MANUAL AND AUTO CONTROL"
