Despite the rather enticing prospects for quick and safe enrichment, do not rush to immediately rush into forklift arbitration. Because you know, where usually there is free cheese. The main risks lie not so much in the strategy itself as in its practical application. Namely, in the search and placement of arbitration rates. Before you start using this scheme, consider the following pitfalls of this strategy.

Limited bet size and account blocking

The betting limits for all bookmakers are different. This may to some extent prevent you from squeezing out the maximum arbitration situation. Also remember that players at arbitrage bets, to put it mildly, are not held in high esteem by many bookmakers. Therefore, some BC can block accounts.

Cancellation of bid

Often bookmakers cancel bets in which an error was made. This may weaken the position of the second bet that the player has made in the framework of arbitration. It threatens with substantial monetary losses. To avoid such situations, we recommend that you carefully study the rules of each bookmaker in which you plan to bet.

High level of difficulty

To maximize the potential of winning on forklift, you need to have a lot of bookmaker accounts (financed, of course) and a lot of free time. Because the game on the strategy of arbitration rates requires a huge investment of effort and organization. You can, of course, put all these efforts on the shoulders of people who are engaged in forks professionally, or use special programs for searching arbitrage rates. But is it worth doing?

  • First, these are additional cash costs, and not small ones, which significantly reduce your profits.
  • Secondly, for the correctness of the results no one (except yourself, of course) will be held responsible.
  • Thirdly, all the above risks remain.

Very little time to bet

Bookmakers are constantly updating odds. In particular, because they are guided by their own competitors. This leads to the fact that the duration of the arbitration situation can be reduced from a few minutes to a few seconds. In such conditions it is very easy to make a mistake and make the wrong bet, because time constraints and the need to make lightning-fast decisions put too much pressure on the player. And add here also the factor of surprise – you get a completely dangerous mixture.

How do bookmakers calculate forkers?

Forks can be considered a relatively safe strategy in the sense that at any outcome any of the stakes will be passed. But this is a stretch, of course. If you close your eyes to the risk of mistakenly putting on the wrong outcome, abrupt changes in the coefficients and a very large psychological pressure (you need to think and act lightning fast).

But in terms of the danger of being caught by the bookmaker “on hot” the risk is very great. The fact is that bookmakers see the coefficients of other companies, therefore, the moments when they have a fork appear to be “well cut off”. If a player puts on such a coefficient regularly, the bookmaker immediately realizes that he is facing a fork. And what further action bookmaker? At best, he can greatly reduce the stakes limits for the player so that no fork can bring even a little bit worthy earnings. In the worst case, the player can be banned altogether, and the account blocked.

What to do if the bookmaker caught on forks (arbitration)?

Well, it depends on what sanctions were applied to the player. To be honest, there are few ways out. As a rule, the forker abandon this betting strategy and start betting as usual, or start new accounts for themselves and continue in the same spirit. In any case, the reputation is no longer restored. So better go to the site and play fair.
