Avoiding Promo Bans | Tip #1 | Web tracking

After you hammer out all the bonus free bets and move onto arbitrage betting and reloads you must start placing “mug bets” every now and then to look like a good value customer and not somebody exploiting promotions. Otherwise you will be banned promo banned pretty quickly.

It is known that certain bookmakers use tracking cookies to follow you on the web, an unfortunate state of affairs yes, but it’s common practice to use tracking cookies online. Airlines are notorious for doing it so this fix will also get you cheaper flights 🙂

The best and easiest way to counter this is by using a free Chrome plugin called ghostery.

This essentially sits beside beside the search bar, when you land on a website you can click the ghost and it will tell you what plugins, cookies and trackers are running in the background. The vast majority are harmless like Google Analytic.

The main one we need to look out for is IESNARE, bookmakers in the UK are known to use this to track users across the web. I can’t confirm if the Australian bookmakers use IESNARE or something similar but it is definately something work looking out for.
