Mugging Day today:

Paddy
SkyBet
888Sport
William Hill
Betfred
BetVictor
Bet365
Betsafe

I will repeat these again later in week.
I've checked my % of offers out of total bets (FEATURE OF MY SPREADSHEET YO) and I'm less than 20% for most of my accounts lol... Except paddy and betbright who I've just signed up to.

Tend to do a grand mug usually on same big match, Arsenal, man city etc, across all bookies on a Saturday. Regardless of odds. Makes it easier :)

[member=928]askgar[/member] [member=2349]Danny[/member] [member=265]JD[/member] the match was NOT a draw yesterday so thank you so much for the 'lay' suggestion, locked in an £11 profit I am v pleased with. Will see if I can do it again next week!

I picked 4x matches with odds around 2.0. Had the last leg on the last day (higher odds). Then if all 3 win you can lock in decent profit.

Basically what the acca refunds are doing with laying sequentially but smaller odds.

[member=2349]Danny[/member] similar with Lay All. Didn't realise if one lay wins AND you get 80% profit with fb you STILL make a 10% loss. Wonder if it can be combined with other acca methods?

£2.10 for me from the Betfair £5 No Risk offer. Happy enough, it all adds up!

I'm going to have another play with the Phil Kent method.... for some reason when using Google Sheets the lay figures didn't update after an early loss.... Got Excel installed after a Fresh Windows install and it seems to be updating as it should.... Going to put one together and see the outcome...

Just wondering when looking at the figures on your SS, are you able to drill down to each Bookie or are you just able to see overall %?

Looking at my overall picture, my FB are at 21%

It's per bookie, % of wins at the bookie and % of offers out of total bets.

Also have profit month by month

Balance in bookie, profit and loss by bookie (so you can see who you're winning off!)

Profit by offer type (sign up, free bet, casino, mug)

All automatic, no macros or anything needed.

Works with Mac and Windows. Google docs version in development!

Let me know if you want a copy :)

Many thanks for your kind offer, but I am too far down the road with mine. I had a bit of a problem drilling down to individual Bookies, but have managed to sort it with a Pivot Table.

This is the acca I've just placed... Using Phil Kent's underlay method.. Admittedly the 1st couple of lays are wrong due to me being lazy about chronological order and then changing my mind to put it in order...



If all legs win... Should be able to lock in 40p profit... Without including the current 10% bonus which should add £5 on to that....

If there's an early qualifying loss... and the rest of the legs win... Should get a £20 free bet which will cost me around £5.60 to qualify for it... This figure gets lower depending on how many wins before the loss....

If I get 2 losses on the legs I will have locked in around 30p profit...

Obviously the aim is for the refunds... but the fact the qualifying for it can be without loss, I'm very much liking the sound of it.... Hopefully this will bring a nice steady stream of income!

During the setting up of this, did you find that the odds had changed much as you went along?

10 seconds later, after posting......... of course not as it is football. Sorry I thought it was horses you were doing.

Obviously acca refunds aren't guaranteed so if you can break even (or better yet a few pence profit) for the hope of getting one that's ideal. I don't like the thought of mounting qual losses with no refund.

I believe the real advantage of this method is when/if the odds drift, you cash in and relay which is often where extra profit comes in.

I'm getting missed calls on my mobile which Google says are from Coral. Any ideas why they'd be phoning? I don't want to answer if it's bad!

[member=265]JD[/member] Only the PSG which came in and made the qualy loss smaller :)

[member=143]auntygeek[/member] Yea.... Hopefully that will only be on the last leg.... With my head round it now... I can really see how much profit can be made from it... Yea... it ties liability up... But with the amounts involved the biggest liability I have in there is £7 which in the scheme of my Exchange bank is naff all! Even if it was a £50 acca I reckon it would only be up to about £17.... Again not very much.... I'm also thinking.... It will hammer Betfair on their points system to bring down my commission rate

Fingers crossed mate!

I'm slowly delving into horses myself. Don't find ACCAS all that enjoyable so i'm starting to add in some extra places/2nd places etc with the horses.

Got a £15 free bet texted to me from Marathon Bet so need to sort that tonight.. and then it's onto a final SUB before the end of the month. Hopefully i can boost my profits a bit and turn a terrible month into a not bad one.

I've not really done the extra place stuff... Not even looked at it in truth... I believe there is money to be made... just unsure how lol...

I can't see me getting anything from Marathon in a while... Had £20 in free bets recently out of nowhere... Not sure they will be so kind again so soon

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!
