ou have been placing winning sports wagers for a while, and your money is growing. Everything is great until you reach your limit. First with one bookmaker, then with another… 

Sounds familiar? How then can one circumvent bookmaker restrictions, i.e., how can one lay low from bookmakers’ lurking eyes?

Stay Away from Further Limitations

There are various tactics to take to avoid additional limits, regardless of whether you have previously encountered bookmaker restrictions or are a rookie who is making limitless wagers (for now).

The more time you can go unrestricted, the better, since there is quite a bit of money out there to be had. Here is a comprehensive list of all of our recommended strategies for extending the life of your bookmaker account. 


Below are our top suggestions for avoiding sportsbook restrictions:

Keep in Mind Your Betting Pattern

Because bookmakers dislike clever punters, you should strive to mislead them by making them believe you are just another “schmuck” punter. It is crucial that you take your general betting pattern into account because of this. Try to place the majority of your arbitrage wagers (also known as “arbs” or “arbing”: betting on opposing teams in the same event at the same time) during the nights and weekends when most recreational gamblers wager. If you were to wager on horse racing arbs, you would typically know when to spot them because they typically arrive in the middle of the day right around the scheduled start of the race.

Additionally, it is a good idea to sometimes introduce a surprise aspect in order to appear as innocent as possible. For instance, the bookies could mistakenly believe that you might be a potential moneymaker for them if you sometimes place a few casino bets on their casino sections, even if the reality is quite the contrary. Simply put, they are to be unaware.

Round up the Stake You Placed


Never wager precise amounts. To prevent immediate restrictions, this is perhaps the most crucial information to understand and we could have easily started listing tips with this one. 

As closely as you can, round your wager to the nearest multiple of five. Therefore, wager $235 or $240 at many bookmakers rather than $237. Better still, put in $200 or $250.

Use Different Account Information on Different Bookies

There are rumors that bookmakers are collaborating to find shady users. 

Do not make it simple for them to locate you and label you as a shady punter. Making up unique usernames and login information is the easiest and most effective method.


Your First Deposit Should Be Small

Do not make a sizable deposit just after signing up. Merely enough money from the initial deposit should remain to pay for the following few bets, two or three tops. 

The first few days after signing up, you should refrain from attracting attention to your account. This can aid you in avoiding an immediate inspection by the bookmakers. Of course, you may and ought to add more to your first deposit a bit later.

Use More Than One Bookmaker

You will have a lot of options for arb or value bets if you use more than one bookie. 


This is advantageous, but it might also make you appear to be “less profit-making” because you are betting with many different bookies.

If You Are Arbing, Choose Bookies Who Are Receptive to It

You will never have a winning limit on a betting operator like Betfair, Matchbook, Betdaq, Smarkets, or others from the list of the best betting sites in Ghana in 2023. Use them as a solid platform when arbitrage betting since they will not prohibit you from doing so. However, do not be afraid to employ other bookies too. The best combination is one that is both “soft” and “sharp”. 

Go on an Internet quest to learn more about the distinction between the so-called “sharp” and “soft” bookmakers. The former type is known for moving their odds fast in order to get close to the true probability of a match. The latter is known for changing their odds slower to meet the demands of casual bettors. If you value bet, you should know that is more difficult to turn a profit value betting with sharp bookmakers and exchanges than with soft bookies alone. So, if you are new to betting, you might want to think about using the latter.

Avoid Making Inessential Withdrawals from a Bookmaker


If you do not need to, avoid pulling your money out of bookies. You can occasionally employ the approach of transferring funds instead of making deposits and withdrawals if you must make “parity” between your bookmaker accounts. 

To maintain the equilibrium of your accounts and avoid any withdrawals, it is ideal, of course, if you constantly have some money in your e-wallet or credit card.

Restrain Yourself

Consider avoiding using one of your bookies for a time if you have a lengthy winning run there. 

This is because your account could already be under investigation.


Avoid Placing Bets on Apparent Palps

Your wager may be canceled by a bookmaker on the grounds that there was the so-called “palp”. This can happen when bookmakers make what they refer to as an “obvious mistake” (“palpable error”), such as when they set the odds incorrectly or accidentally flip a match’s odds.

Additionally, there are restrictions in the Terms & Conditions of betting operators that prevent you from profiting from those errors. When sportsbooks make a mistake like this, they are protected so they will not have to pay out on bets placed by attentive gamblers. Looking at the odds of other bookmakers for the same match/event is a simple method to identify such an error; if they are mostly in line with one another, it is an obvious palp.

Do Not Withdraw Right Away When a Bonus Has Been Met

Do not attempt to pay out as soon as your bookmaker bonus has been satisfied or your bets have become winners.


This can lead to suspicion.

Do Not Expose Too Much on Social Media

It may be tempting to brag to friends about online earnings from arbitrage or value betting. Nevertheless, make an effort to lay low since bookies are frequently “eavesdropping” everywhere. Additionally, never register with bookies using your social network-connected email address. 

Also, never use the same web browser to visit a bookmaker while connected to Facebook, Twitter, or any other social media. If the bookmaker’s website contains a Facebook button, your identity will be revealed.  

Do Not Wager Heavily on Foreign Competitions and Low Tires


If you place a sizeable wager involving a third-division basketball championship in another nation, some bookmakers could raise an eyebrow. You will probably be identified as an arber if you put large sums on a foreign league, especially if it is low tier. 

Also, be cautious when betting on vague competitions in nations with a history of match-fixing issues. A bookie setting to disable the display of lower-tier leagues exists and may be useful in this situation.

Do Not Get into a Situation Where Your Bet Is Reviewed 

Your wager should not be sent for manual approval.

This is what would happen if you try to place a wager that exceeds the maximum stake allowed and the bookmaker sends it for its staff’s evaluation before deciding whether to accept it or reject it. 


They usually reject it.

Think Carefully About Your Stakes

The average wager ranges from 50 to 500 euros (or its equivalent in another currency). If you consistently wager larger sums, bookies could check you out more frequently. Additionally, you should refrain from consistently placing bets for the same amount. 

Remember to act how you would have thought they would have acted if they were frequent punters. Attempt to avoid betting the maximum amount every time. This can hasten the examination of your account. Try to wager somewhat less than the maximum bet stake.

Use Your Restricted Accounts as Before


It may appear at first that your account has been restricted because of only a few euros. However, not all sports and markets are necessarily impacted by this constraint. Continue to place bets with your limited account on various sports and leagues. On major events, you could still have the option of placing substantial wagers.

With lots of moneyed unrestricted bookmaker accounts, we wish you luck in your endeavors as an arbitrage and value bettor. We hope these recommendations were helpful.

For the End

The fact is, though, that you cannot predict when a bookmaker could restrict you. If your account is restricted, your only option is to comply with the restriction and switch on to the other bookmaker. And do not worry, there are a ton of other trustworthy bookies available. Additionally, since new bookies constantly enter the market, there are bound to be prospects for arbitrage and more possibilities for you to open new accounts.

If all the above was TL;DR for you, then focus on this: simply be sensible and behave like a typical punter.

Why Your Leadership Retreat Is Boring, Unsuccessful and Doesn’t Deliver Peak Performance – I



Dr. Abiola Salami

Leadership retreats are usually less formal and unofficial, allowing staff members to let their hair down and relax in a fun atmosphere. For many organizations, leadership retreats are one of those things to be done at the end of the year; a box to be ticked off – something that has a statutory allocation. Often times, there is no intentionality to the execution of the leadership retreat, many things are allowed on the spur of the moment. Such events end up being flops owing to the discordant and incongruent nature of implementation. Perhaps, these annotated reasons could help decision-makers at corporations to right their wrongs when planning a corporate retreat.

  1. There Is Little or No Intentionality

The idea that just because leadership retreats are informal, detailed planning should be ignored is comical at best. There is always a science to every madness. The management of human beings is both a science and an art. Desired outcomes should be matched with specific actions. What works for one organization might not work for another; you must develop a custom playbook based on the uniqueness of the organization you lead. The experience has to be well-curated; the activities should be designed to meet a specific need. It’s a form of counterprogramming; if the service culture in the organization is poor, games that foster courtesy could be used to subtly address that issue. Where certain members of staff have constituted themselves into rival groups, smart human resource managers can identify those in opposing camps and crossmatch them with one another such that each person is forced to partner with someone he or she wouldn’t ordinarily pair with if given a choice.

One of the tell-tale signs of the lack of coherence in a leadership retreat is the absence of moderators. Event hosts or comperes are not just faces that show up at corporate retreats, they are effectively executors of management’s agenda. Most of their utterances are not happenstance but a result of strategic debriefing on the objectives to be achieved. Many a times, we have seen comedians crack what could be terms an “inside joke” – a double entendre that on the surface appears innocuous but for those in the loop, they know it’s a subtle jab at a real-life situation. One of the perks of a third-party event host is the perceived neutrality; there would be less suspicious that the host is pandering towards any interest within the company. An event host can be one of the staff members but he or she mustn’t be too low on the corporate ladder so that utterances are not seen as disrespectful. 

  1. The Atmosphere Is No Different from The Workplace

There is typically a marked difference between the high-octane environment of the office and the ease of the great outdoors. Leadership retreats are not meant to be stressful or reminiscent of the rigours of the workplace. When activities or tone of communication connotes command or cohesion instead of consensus, team members, especially those that are the lower rungs of the corporate ladder tend to zone out. Why would anyone attend a retreat only to be constantly barked at by higher-ups? Titles and designations shouldn’t be so prominent in a leadership retreat, it makes people uneasy to, for example, crack jokes with their bosses. Nobody wants to get slammed with a query letter for going out of line. Leadership retreats are designed to ensure that the gap between team leaders and their team members is reduced not exacerbated.

When a leader is not self-assured, there is a very high tendency to use every possible opportunity at a retreat to remind everyone else that he or she is the boss. Thus, different antics that make others cower into their cocoons might be deployed. Also, when activities are seen more as tasks or chores, people begin to sense that there is a subtle power play going on. Such things dampen the mood and suck out the fun at retreats.

  1. Toxic Work Culture

Most leadership retreats simply never work because the existing corporate culture disallows innovation. You cannot be promoting toxicity and expect a retreat to deliver value without addressing the elephant in the room. Are salaries being owed? Is nepotism driving promotions and opportunities instead of merits? Is there a prevalence of abuse of power or exploitation by higher-ups? Are the terms of service or working conditions at par or close to standard market rates? Do team members always engage in blame fixing? Are team members largely excuse manufactures?

Corporate retreats are essentially to get feedback from both sides; management getting input from staff members and staff members equally getting feedback from management. Organizing a lavish retreat should not be seen as a substitute for fixing the underlying challenges at the workplace. People would rather work for an organization that treats them well than for one that engages in what they would consider secondary issues. No discontent staff member would be excited to show up at a leadership retreat with the people responsible for his or her emotional state.

Next week, we will share the concluding part of the conversation.
