Hi all

Found this forum yesterday and signed up today after reading many threads.
I made my 1st bet today using free £20 bet from Coral. I have a few questions about Betfair, I deposited £70 in my Betfair acc and made my lay bet. when I go to my account I cant see any bets in my history, I just wanted to know I have I actually placed the bet? 1.jpg

Thank you for your quick reply heres a screenshot. My balance is 2.98, but I put in £75, so the liability has been deducted. I just cant seem to find the bets 2.jpg

If you go back to the exchange and go to that rate and click on Open Bets on the right does it appear then?

If not then it's worth jumping on LiveChat

No.

Why have you backed them on betfair? You back at the bookie (coral) and lay at Betfair. It also looks like you have laid the bet twice for some reason

Yeah I layed the bet, but because I didnt see anything on my history, and my liability went back up. I assumed it didnt go through. I layed the bet. the guy on the phone said I could exchange the back bet.

You were lucky there. Kommander Kirkup finished 4th in the 12.50 race at Southwell. If it had won, you'd be £70 odd quid down.

Next time on Betfair, if you've placed a lay bet on there - it will show up in the race under "open bets(1)" showing the number of bets placed on that particular race.

Also, Coral welcome offer is "bet £5 get £20 in free bets (4 x £5 free bets)".

You appear to have laid too much at Betfair for this offer.

Amazon just contacted me regarding my seller account... I wasn't aware I still had one as I last used it in 2004!
Can I believe I've actually just bought some proper lights for LEGO animations - a bit of a short sale on Amazon! :D
So Respondent have contacted me to take part in a face to face interview next week.
Excited & should take me over £100 goal for January....
I really should get back into Matched Betting - I'm pretty sure most of what I make goes to Odds Monkey as I don't bother cancelling the subscription - oops!
So as a newbie here I'm still trying to get my head round it all & which is the way to channel my time. I've signed up to Prolific & Resondent thanks to @Jon
I've earned a few 3.00 on Prolific so far & waiting on surveys to come back from Respondent that I've applied for, so fingers crossed.
I have a few items listed on Ebay which I hope I will put to my 1st try at MB, scares me to be honest.
