Do Bookmakers allow multi accounting?
What are the consequences?
I will try and cut this one short, as ‘consequences’ is a harsh word for this.
In reality, you aren’t going to have the Police knocking your door down over this matter.
However, if you are caught multi accounting, the bookmakers will certainly ban you from their website. The worst case scenario is having the account closed and the funds in the account seized with it.
Your losses can exceed thousands of pounds!
How is Gnoming potentially fraud?
Matched betting isn’t fraudulent, it’s the process of multi accounting.
There are multiple levels of fraud committed here, first you open the account in another persons name, then you use their debit cards to deposit funds. The worst bit is for the verification checks, you physically send identity documents claiming you are that person.
[icon type=”thumbs-up”] I have never had any conflict with a bookmaker regarding bonus abuse, I believe this is VERY rare.
Is there a way to succeed Multi Accounting?
Yes, it is definitely possible to succeed. I can’t personally advise you start doing this & I definitely don’t recommend you reply admitting you do this… but there are ways.
Get a VPN
this will hide your I.P Address, making it look like you are in a different location.
Use a separate device
Place your bets on a mobile device with mobile data, as mobile data is often Dynamic, meaning the I.P isn’t fixed
Trust only those close to you
As you will require access to a bank account of theirs, plus identity documents, I would advise only doing this with trusted friends.
Multi Accounting is definitely dangerous. You won’t get arrested, but you run the risk of losing your betting accounts, balances in those accounts & a lot of lost time!
If you are going to start gnoming, ensure you don’t keep a lot of money in that account. This means if you are ever found out, you won’t be quids out of pocket!
Although there is a danger to Multi Accounting, if you decide to start gnoming i believe you will be able to get away with it.
If you are found out to be multi accounting, you will definitely be gubbed. There are ways around being found out.
