Jeeez it's been a slow week for me. Ah well, £8 from the SkyBet virtuals offer - every bit counts!
Ooh I just got a notification for that. Might give it a go.


EDIT - Ooooh yay! That was really fast. Just put it on a favourite to win (greyhounds) starting in a couple of minutes, and put my free bet on the 2nd fave the same race so thought that would maximise my chances.

1st fav win - £7.50 profit
2nd fav win - £16.50 profit
Any others - £0

1st fav won so a quick +£7.50 for this!! I'd probably do it again, even if you lose the £5 it's worth a go :)

Just placed a £3 acca on 6 favourites to win in the FA Cup over the weekend... if it comes in I'll get £55 or so... last 3 legs could all be laid sequentially if possible so I'm hoping I could lock in some profit again :D

Need to do a load of sign ups and do my qualifier on Man U tomorrow then fb can be done on Saturday... but that's tomorrow's job I think.

I just traded my 50 for 10 free spins on smugface and walked away with a cool 60p.

He nearly lost his wig.

Are you ended up with these slots winnings going into cash? Mine was £1.45 ended up in my bonus balance.

Mine have gone into bonus as well. Opened up Starburst to do a couple of spins to see if I could wager it and it gave me 20 free spins where the money went into cash balance - worth having a try at that!

Nice! That's what I did and as there are only 6 runners it seems a good chance of of making £5-10 profit... Of course you could get riskier and if you win with the qualifier put it on an outsider in another race for chance to win big... Who knows tho.

That's what I did - I put my initial bet on a favourite on a greyhound race and it won so I used my free bet on an outsider on the off-chance, but of course it lost!

If you make a few £ profit on the qualifier I think it's worth a punt but I suppose I'm thinking minimise the chances of losing my initial £5.

Still £7.50 isn't bad! :)

Just too slow but perhaps worth keeping an eye on the tennis...

Murray was 1.39 on Smarkets then he lost the first two games so now is 1.70 to back. If you'd got a £30 lay in first you could make a quick £5 profit

One more for @Danny I think! Tennis can change a lot quicker than football...

Might do it the other way around, lay Raonic now at a low price and when Murray takes the lead.. Which he will... And the odds go up at the bookie, put a bet on and grab a nice arb.

Can't see that they'd know you were arbing as at the time of bet it wouldn't be an arb and it's an in play bet.

Sounds very much a piece out of my play book of doing in play offers! lol

All I would say though... Is Back when you feel comfortable because it can go wrong...

The only problem will be working it out to make profit as you don't know what the back odds will be...

I think I missed my opportunity... Would have been a nice Arb at the start of the game!!

I think I'll perhaps go for the pre game price at the exchange and then back in game as soon as I can make £5 profit.

Got to go to work now so another time!

Edit - I would put £20-30 or so in the exchange and then go on trickybet 'already laid and need to back' and get nearest round number.
