Bookmakers segregate players according to the degree of profitability. This allows them to more easily forecast whether they will profit from a given client in the future and how much profit it may be. It is worth knowing how the bookmaker sees you, because this will determine how you will be treated.
It's no secret that the bookmaker monitors the gambling habits and behavior of selected customers. Each bookmaker has a customer selection system. Assigning customers to selected categories is made by the bookmaker's employees in order to maximize long-term profits.
The new player becomes a regular player that at the start receives a “base stake limit”. A regular player often places bets “without value” or with bookmakers that do not have the highest rate on the market at the moment. Consequently, he loses money in the long run, even in spite of the bonuses received. Regular players are often considered betting AKO coupons, on different disciplines, both in pre-match and live betting.
A smart player is a professional player who uses various techniques to achieve very favorable results, who manages his capital well, controls emotions and places medium or high stakes.
Very Important Person, who plays high stakes and a lot of this is lossy because they do not apply advanced tools while betting. This is the type of client most desired by the bookmaker, therefore VIPs can enjoy various privileges (special promotions, cash bonuses, material bonuses, bigger betting limits etc.). A VIP player does not know or does not use the concept of value bet, follows his intuition when betting and often plays the disciplines popular in his country.
A player who uses sure bets as the main game system. Surebet players are usually the strictest limited group of players – even up to 0 ÷ 1% of the value of an ordinary player's limit.
Bonus hunter is a player at the bookmaker who sets up new accounts in order to receive the welcome bonus and this is where his activity usually ends under the registered data. From a bookmaker's point of view, such players are highly unprofitable and disloyal. The practice itself is the bane of online bookmakers who offer welcome bonuses for new players. Any such abuse detected is unconditionally exterminated by the bookmakers.
A syndicate is the type of players at bookmakers who work in close consultation with other smart players. It is most often a group of players who cooperate via closed forums and have extremely valuable information that they share with other forum users. The bookmaker recognizes people related to each other by very similar bets (usually a series of similar bets in quick succession). Syndicate members tend to have their stake limits lowered to 10-50% of the Base Limit.
A type of player at a bookmaker who is suspected of having access to information about fixed matches. He plays high stakes, often at high odds. Immediately after winning, he withdraws funds and registers a new account as soon as it is limited. Fixers are very strictly limited. Match fixing is illegal, so these players hinge on the edge of the law. There is a general tendency in sports betting to prosecute such players by legal means, although it is hardly ever possible to draw any real consequences from it, because in practice it is difficult to prove that a person is related to a set meeting.
