what you think about this?This is normall procedure from bet365 side??


It's not that strange.All of the hugely annoying KYC [know your customer] stuff seems to be evolving as a result of legislative bureaucracy from the authorities who claim that it is there to prevent criminal activity/money laundering.The failure to call you might be partly because of Christmas,and partly because actually 'phoning you would be expensive for Bet365 as it uses the time of a staff member who has to be paid wages.
What bookmakers should not be doing is telling their customers that their accounts have been verified before they have had time to review the verification and satisfy themselves that it is okay.That might encourage customers to deposit money,which might then be tied up in an account while the bookies ask for more proof of ID.

I'm not entirely surprised by this - I was never overly impressed by Bet365's customer service when I used to bet with them. I realize that Bet365 are one of the most popular and successful bookmakers on the planet, but I've always thought that they are slightly overrated (average odds, very quick to limit winning players - more so in recent years - and customer service which can be rather hit and miss). In my view they owe their phenomenal success much more to brilliant marketing strategies than to the quality of what they offer. They are unquestionably reputable (if a little pernickety sometimes) and well deserve their place on the BMR Green List, but I regard them as no more than a good solid bookmaker and can think of half a dozen others I would sooner bet with.

Today is 4 January-2 weeks from he blocked my account!!!
Still nobody contact me(no calls),no answer on my last email sent 11(!) days ago....


Use their livechat.Perhaps they were short-staffed over the Xmas and new year period,and are catching up on a backlog of work.
