BetFair stated to me that, “-Residents of Monaco are allow to use Betfair and all the accounts from Monaco are still opened.”- Monaco people using a French ISP might run into temporary problems, though.

So, it seems that the few Monaco people reporting problems to me are in the minority, and there is no BetFair policy blocking Monaco bettors. Good to hear.

As you all know, BetFair have closed all accounts from France residents.

Strangely, they also closed accounts from people living in the Principality of Monaco (an independent country that is recognized by the United Nations). Bizarre. If you have insider info, send them in to moi. Thanks.
