Gah too slow on the Sky Bet enhanced acca again. Would have been £7-8 profit/no loss earlier, but BF lay odds have gone up to 10.5 from 10. No way to make a profit on this one now.

Will keep an eye on it to see if it changes...

I'd certainly advise caution with following the crowd in terms of which arbs/mugs you pick as it won't help in the gubbing stakes.
Now PA is a 12k+ membership beast and there are so many people there who don't think and need it all spoon-fed... I think there's something in this. I initially thought 'ooh great! a mug bet thread!' but actually if thousands of people are betting on the same thing it's easy to find a pattern. I find my own mug bets via the Odds matcher... I just scan down until I see a 'big' team playing at home and back them, even if it's a 70p loss on a £20 bet.

I've made over £300 in my first month on free bets alone but I've also spent £80 mug betting before moving onto reloads next weekend. I've done one or two emailed offers since signup, and one or two in-plays, but tried to avoid reloads.

I think people on PA rush from signup to reloads and think just betting on Man U to win a couple of times when it's a 99% match is enough. I'd rather be extra cautious until I have a 'profile' over a few months with the bookies.

Made if through wagering to make £22

Didn't win much from the free spins which mean a low wagering then hit a few good bonuses

Annoying music on that slot though

You do seem to have a way with slots.

Everyone seen the Coral tennis offer. Bet £20 get £10. Easy one to do.

Back Raonic at 1.2 lay at around 1.24 (if using betfair you must transfer money into the Aus wallet)

Same. I won either 61.00 or 610.00 points and presumed it'd be £6.20 which would then give me the limit of £5 to play with, but then it gave me £1 ;D I didn't mind though as it was less to wager! If I had to waget £5 x 40 I don't think I'd have got anywhere...

Bit confused about the timing with this one. The terms and conditions state that the qualifying bet should be placed between 12 gmt Friday and 12 gmt Saturday with the free bet available from noon Saturday but is 12 gmt noon or midnight because when I went to place a bet it said offer not currently available.

That's what I do, auntygeek, though I don't always use the odds matcher, as I've primarily stuck to PL, Championship and FA cup so it's easy to just tile my bookies window and exchange window and look side by side. As I branch out into the European leagues I'll probably use the odds matcher more.

I haven't done the same as you re the offers, I've done most of the beginners ones then started mugging and reloading as there were some good reloads coming up in the weeks before Christmas, so I went with some of them. Going back and doing some of the advanced offers now.

Jon you do well on the slots but you seem to spend a lot of time on them! It seems to be worth it if you can do it though.

Back to a new normal next week, and I need to get my butt into gear to actually have time to do things! Anyone else horrendous at time management?

Now have a Son in Law, and have become the 'dreaded' Mother in Law. Many congratulations to Hazel and Matt who got married on 10th August, at the Centre for Alternative Technology, Machynlleth, North Wales. It was a fab weekend away and the most unconventional but personal wedding ever!
