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