    how likely is it bank statement gets accepted instead of utility bill?

    In 3 years I have only been asked for a Utility Bill once and my bank statement not good enough. That was Betway who have a track record for sometimes being difficult. They usually gub quickly anyhow so not much lost if you avoid them.

    Planning ahead - Cheltenham?

    Yeah WH had it last year for £50, so bit of a shame they didn't repeat that one. Been disappointed in Hills this Festival, just a few £5 bets in the bag.

    Mbing, plan of action required

    Shared Liability is the best way to counter the high liability that can come with betting on horses. That's when you bet on different horses (with different bookies obviously) in the same race. There can be only 1 winner so your liability will only be the amount needed for the highest odds horse...

    Horse Racing - Matched Bet

    You could try also putting bets on football accumulators. There are lots of pre-made accumulators available to Lay on the Exchanges, especially on Saturday's and they are far less suspicious than horses (if you're inexperienced with Horse Racing). On Smarkets you can find them under Football -...

    888 Sport 'potential' withdrawal problem

    You'll find a lot of places have issues with Mastercard. Not only bookies either, Exchanges like Matchbook get funny about it too. It's all to do with Money Laundering I think.

    Was it a Mastercard? There are actually a few sites that have issues with MC which often only come to light when withdrawing so something to be aware of if so.

    Basically with extra places you make your money if a horse you have backed comes in that extra place because then both your bookie Back bet wins AND your Lay bet pays out. For it to be effective, you kinda have to take a scattershot approach - you go around all the bookies offering extra places...

    [OT] Discussion about Matched Betting II {Beginners Guide in 1st Post}

    I got my 365 email on Saturday but if you've only signed up recently it's probably that. I seem to recall when I signed up earlier in the year people got that offer a few times on PA before I started to get it. Think I waited at least a month or two.

    MB from abroad.

    I've VPN'd in when I've been on holiday in the USA - I use Browsec which also has a Chrome Extension so you can easily flip it on and off and change locations. As I use it so rarely I use the free version which has limited locations and is pretty slow but get-byable for odd one off situations...

    I think I got something like £1.80 the first (and only) time I've got the Jackpot King drop in. It doesn't actually win you the Jackpot, it just gets you in the feature.

    Oh Dear I have messed up

    Don't forget, if an Exchange won't let you cash out for some reason, you can manually place a Back bet at the Exchange too to cancel out an error.

    I would focus on the bookies that have some sort of Bet Club ie Paddy Power. Even if there are no offers on throughout the week (and there nearly always is), then 5 x £10 with low qualifying losses will still net you a £10 free bet at the end of the week. If you can coincide that with offers...

    William Hill Bet £10 Get £20 Free Bet (In-Store) process??

    You're still backing with a bookie and laying with an exchange. It's exactly the same just one you do online and one you do in the shop. Think of it as popping down Tesco's at the end of your road to do your shopping instead of ordering online for home delivery. You're getting the same...

    Confused over the risk free horse racing free bets on Bet365?

    No, because when you place your risk free, you're Laying it as SNR. If the bet loses, your Lay wins and Bet365 give you a refund. If the bet wins (which incidentally, as long as also 4/1, would qualify you for another risk free too in the next featured race), you still make a profit because you...

    Confused over the risk free horse racing free bets on Bet365?

    Yes, that's exactly how it works. That's what I meant when I said I would have just placed the next bet and if the refund didn't hit, I'd chase afterwards. It's not a free bet, it's a risk free offer. You get refund if your follow up bet loses. Their offer does buck the trend as most offers...
