Don't like bonanza, seems high variance with very few good payouts. Drive multiplier mayhem, big bad wolf and guns n roses are the go to slots here.

Well I just put a fiver through the Goonies for a £1 bonus at betfair and didn't win a single thing.

Not even a truffle shuffle!

Do you favour taking time to get maximum return on a free bet, or accept lower return but crack on faster? I'm partly taking my time from a confidence point of view (and depending on what's being placed, bankroll availability atm) but I'm also being a bit of a stickler for squeezing as much out of an offer as possible. That's not necessarily a bad thing I know, but at the moment, with a limited amount going on, that can mean I'm waiting around for better odds. Can't decide if that's sensible, or it's just better to accept less (say 70-75% return) and move on faster. I know this is a personal preference, just wondering what you guys are doing :)

It depends on the stake for me.

If i am doing the likes of Bet365 £50 free bet offers then I want close matches

If I am doing £20-25 horse refund matches on a Saturday and using match catcher on PA then I want to see very close matches!

If it's just a £10 free bet I don't seem to be so fussed and am happy just getting anything over £7 out of that!

Similar for me. I aim for 70% retention from the smaller free bets, sometimes by necessity due to the available events at the time or poor odds from certain bookmakers.

does anyone else take time periodically to ensure that all their numbers add up? Ie original bankroll and recorded profit? I keep my bets on a spreadsheet so i can keep track, and also use the profit tracker on PA. I still have a couple of bets to settle but even then my numbers seem out by about 100pounds and i can't figure out why that is? I like all my numbers to match up since money is all over the place, and i have checked all my accounts and can't seem to find this money? I could understand messing up the recording of a bet, but i would need to have done that a good few times to lose 100 pounds!

Maybe i am over thinking this but i just like to check in to make sure my figures match.

Hope that makes sense to someone?!

I worryingly don't lol

I just sort of trust in the math and every few weeks withdraw all the money back to my HSBC account and as long as it's more than I started with i'm a happy man ;)

yeah I don't know what it is about the smaller bets. I think I just see FAR more importance / value in £20+ free bets

but then I'm the guy who does crazy slot offers so what the hell do I know lol

see i think your method is much better because i have been driving myself potty over the past two days as i can't get my numbers to add up!! Do you just wait for all your current bets to settle and then withdraw everything back to your bank account and see where you stand from there? I think i will do that, i think i'm overcomplicating it!

Took me all morning to send an email to a potential client because I was nervous about the amount of money I was asking for. Pretty sure this never happens to men.
