Might not be the most sensible way to go about things, but I just pick the 5 games in a day that I think offer the best value and bung a fiver on, and if the odds are good enough to make it worthwhile I bung another fiver on 50p trebles. And try not to chase it with another bet when the first game goes pear shaped.

that's a really nice strategy :))) will try it too. What other strategies are you guys using ? I have tried a lot of different strategies, but nothnig seemed to work. In the end, it's all just luck, I think. What is your opinion on that point? I am just really disappointed, because recently I have analysed EVERYTHGING and bet on a  match that should have ended like 99,9% with my prediction. I was playing on Online casino utan svensk licens, which is pretty good, but my bet didn't work. This is really awful

Have you ever tried putting a parsnip up your bum for good luck?  60 % of the time it works every time.

Does anyone know what Ladbrokes vouchers can be redeemed against ?

I'm due a £15 one as a prize from their 5-a-Side thingy but their info page is a bit wishy-washy with regards to what I might expect.

(They'll e-mail me within 24 hrs apparently.)

I guess I've missed something here but I noticed 'mental' odds on a volleyball game so took a punt (there are two bets cause I only had £1.81 in the account and the odds improved after my first £1 bet)

The third set finished 25-20 ... my winning margin of 2 bet is good!?

(Virgin are looking into it for me)

Looks like the margin had to be 2 exactly, not 2 or more. Thus the big odds.

That makes sense - was the winnings from a free bet anyso so no outlay - will see what they say.

 

Ta.

Can any arbers out there tell me if there's any profit to be made here?

Mcbookies

Bet365

Apologies for the late answer, but yes.

First check is what is required stake to guarantee £100 return for each possible outcome. If total stake is under £100, then the opportunity is there.

£67 Formartine 1/2 with Bet365 returns £100.50 

£14.30 Draw 6/1 with McBookie returns £100.10

£16.70 Nairn 5/1 with McBookie returns £100.20

£98 outlay for a guaranteed £100+ return. Obviously scalable depending on your funds available and what you think won’t get noticed.

When you make a bet for a red card in a match, now that managers can get red carded, doesn't that technically count within the betting confines as well now?

Skybet rules: "Only cards shown to players currently on the pitch will count.
Cards shown to managers, players already substituted off or substitutes not yet used do not count towards the total."

Other bookies may have different rules.

Cheers. It wasn't clear on PP so I managed to argue my stake back. It's something you don't think about until you've got a stake in the question.

I think you can call that a win!

My bet365 account has been restricted.  I've had no communication from them to say why and I haven't even really placed many bets with it.  I only ever put £5 on a three or four team coupon every few Saturdays.  I often go months without betting and never do anything strange on my account.

According to Google, there's nothing I can do and my accounts basically dead.  It's only got 34p in it at the moment.

Were you in profit with them? I don't really understand how they make these decisions unless people are arbing or something which you say you weren't. I'd have thought your kind of gambling would be their bread and butter, apart from trying to get serious addicts to borrow more and gamble it.
