making arbitrage betting means that you must use several bookmakers.
 it's very hard that one of them could see a strange movement since you're playing also in others website.
I don't think crypto sportsbook will restrict user since it's really hard to demonstrate arbitrage, and most of time you can win just a very small percentage!

normally (real life betting) players got restricted only in certain situation (likewise playing heavy amount).

apparently nothing has changed, and as a reason I would add also the same provider for most of betting sites.
I opened some weeks ago this post asking for some update about "sure bets" but actually there is not any resource suitable for btc Sad

Well make sure the bookies do not catch you on arbitrage betting. They do not like betters who do this kind of activities. For them gambling is a fun not to make money. If you find a way to make money then they will restrict you because they have a business to run LOL

Yes, it is possible but you have to be very fast and smart to liquidate the winnings, bets. The Stake and Bitsler have different odds on the same event but the difference is very small. If you can manage to catch the match bet, it will be easier on regular fiat sportsbooks. Long story short, it is better to use a script for finding the gaps between different gambling websites and events.

I haven't encountered any BTC gambling site that allows this as of yet, coz it is gonna bankrupt the house, although it is quite understandable for people to d the these due to unfair house edge or other factors but really, it all boils down to the question whether you are gambling to relieve of stress or gambling to earn money, because the latter will be so hard to achieve.

If you really wanna do arbitrage betting it is advisable to use two different sites rather than try your hardest to make it in one, more often than not they won't allow it as these types of betting strat causes the house to lose money. So better yet, choose a different betting site instead and do it on then arbitrage on both. You're still bound to win either way.

Because there are very few sites who would allow you to do so, and the sites that would allow you will only give you less rewards so it's not going to be that profitable either way. Just try my strat, that should work.

I agree it's hard to spot gamblers that do arbitrage but still possible back then there was one bitcoin sportsbook I forgot which one but there was a case about one of their players getting limited because they claimed that he was doing arbitrage and the even got a proof coming from another sportsbook.

Good luck with that then. Yes, Arbitrage betting can bring you significant profits, but really, it's more similar to doing illegal activities right under their noses which could lead to a lot of issues once caught. Maybe do it every now and then instead? At the very least, don't do it regularly since bookmakers might catch your tail in one of your tries.

This state of affairs pisses me off - why shouldn't bookmakers just follow the rules and just run their business (mathematics is on their side anyway and they will always be in profit). What's the point in looking for and banning successful players? It seems to me that this greatly affects the image of betting and bookmakers.
Well, they're running a business, not a charity. Profits always come first, and that's also probably why Arbitrage betting even came to be in the first place. Profits are always right, or something like that.

yep. Actually, a lot of btc bookmakers use the same layout/design, the same odds provider, almost the same everything, so at some point you have wonder if they have a line of communication between them which they could use to share info and spot arbers and the likes, and i think the answer is "yes, they do have that"

This isn't impossible though it's hard to arbitrage really.

I read some discussions in the past about arbitrage betting that it did not last too long because only few can really relate.
Bookies now with the use of the a good system won't allow anyone to abuse their site through arbitrage betting, I mean they have a very standard odds, if you'll find an arbitrage opportunity, it's only in a little percent of opportunity, that's why I'm saying it's hard job to do.

And you will end up just wasting your effort. I don't know any person here who is successful in arbitrage betting or he's just keeping it to himself. I believe there are few individuals doing it but they are just mum about it as they already found the trick on how to take advantage of this scheme.
a lot of people, almost all of them who find a tricky way to make guaranteed profit off something whether it was gambling or anything else, they won't share it to the public and risk the ability to do that trick if things can reach bookies, so asking publicly for something like this is useless and won't get him anything.

Did someone of you try to do Arbitrage on sport bets in BTC gambling sites?
Some years ago i checked some sites and it wasn't possible (house edge was too big, bigger than the house edge in traditional sportbook sites).
Maybe something is changed in the last years?

Nope, it's still the same old.

There are very rarely any worthwhile opportunities, and if there are, they are generally caused by some sort of inefficiency in the markets that you cannot actually take advantage of safely and profitably. For instance, if a sportsbook has low limits, high withdrawal requirements etc., you wouldn't be able to take advantage of arbs even if the odds at this particular sportsbook are great.

I wouldn't waste time on it honestly. But if you want to try, you can sign up to BitEdge for free. I signed up a while back and basically you would receive free updates on arb opportunities whenever they come up.

I also looked into it some years ago and it was simply not possible since the house edge was very high, I have not checked recently but I suppose things are pretty much the same, so if you want to make some arbitrage bets you are better off going to fiat casinos as they have way better odds and the fact that there is heavy regulation in the industry plays in your favour and when you add the bonuses especially those that come in big events then you can find many opportunities to make some money.
