STUPID MEANINGLESS RUBBISH!!
I hate international football. Gets in the way of club football. It’s substandard quality. The friendlies are tough to bet on too.

Struggling this week with low odds and matches, had to use some free bets up before they expire too so not got the most value out of them.

Did some slots last night and came out even on my stake wagering my own funds, but then made a £70 win on my bonus which I could not wager through. So didn't win anything. I never seem to win when using my own money.

No love from Paddy today, but I got an email from Betfair offering me a free £2 slot bonus and managed to turn it into £18.56. I'm back to feeling warm and fuzzy about the slots again ;)

Yes, sounds like the risk free calculator is the same as what PA call the Bonus lock-in calculator. Basically I over laid the WH Lay bet meaning even if my horse lost, I was still able to pull guaranteed cash from it either way.

I don't usually bother with the trigger calculator offers, and do them Advantage Play, come in less often but bigger rewards when they do plus I'm lazy and only have to Lay one bet instead of two that way :D

Scurries off to find out what the heck 'Advantage Play' is .............................................

Bollocks. Just lost my £20 free bet from coral because it expired after 24 hours. I thought it was good for the whole of the next day and was saving it for when i got home from work, but it is exactly 24 hours after its credited. Watch out for that in future. Live chat were very sympathetic but wouldnt recredit it.
Sorry for delay in replying @homie but only just seen this, so a tip for next time maybe?

I had EXACTLY the same problem, annoying as the blurb said the free bet would be credited BY noon the next day, and lots of people were receiving it late. I didn't even know WHEN I received mine.

Anyhow, I went onto live chat and they confirmed it was 24 hours from when you RECEIVE the free bet (which is stupid as it could go into your account anytime of the day or night), and that it is not possible to re-instate or issue another one. I was really annoyed to lose the £20 Free Bet.

However, I later saw a mention of this on the OM forum where someone HAD got the free bet after going onto live chat a second time and saying they (genuinely) thought they had 24 hours from when the bet was issued by (i.e. noon).

I tried it, and it worked (it was after midnight though, when it was a lot quieter, which may have helped).

I would also add that I had a free bet with Ladbrokes (which was also use within 24 hours) which did not show up in my account, despite constant checking.

In the end I did a 'trial' bet without placing it - and the free bet showed up on the Betslip, so it was in my account, just did not show anywhere else.

Apparently this is sometimes the case, that they ONLY show up on the Betslip itself.

Just to add that I made around £150 for Cheltenham week - made a dumb mistake with the calculator on one which cost me about £100 - ouch! Still, I consider it a steep learning curve and will hopefully learn from it, ha ha!

I know it is not much compared to most on here but I only placed approx. 30 bets, using 6 different bookies. I am gubbed by Sunbets, Sky and have yet to join Bet365, so don't think I did TOO badly for my first Cheltenham - especially as I very rarely do horses (too fast) and have only just joined OM.

It's still £150 I would not have had - and VERY welcome. This week has been very flat in comparison - can't believe I'm wishing the football was on, ha ha!

PP also have a £10 free bet offer if England win, and also if Ireland win - both on selected markets - their odds are usually pants though!
