Can I ask a question to the experienced MB people? Did you put your winnings into your Betfair account when you first started to build it up so you have a better pot for laying? Also do you withdraw fairly quickly or do you let your winnings build up?

Never withdraw from betfair if you can help it. You need the £ in there for your offers. I have all my profit in Betfair and Smarkets and taking Jon's advice to wait until I have a pot of £2000 then will skim off profit

If I have profit in bookies I leave it in to mug or for the next offer. If you need it you can withdraw it back if you're still on signups.

Does that mean I've got 2x £5 free bets from Selby already? :D

Thanks, Auntygeek, you've been really helpful with the accas stuff!

My 888 teams are playing tomorrow night, they better score. I reviewed my GMM qualifiers and FB returns and so far I've only made £1.67! Bloody 0-0 scores.

If a FB T&C says that it is a '£xx win single bet' does that mean it can't be used on multiples?

Yes, and 'win' is win-draw-win market (match result)

RESULT!!! That is why it is always worth having a spin if you ever have a £2 bonus too. I got one of the freebie flutter Monday Bingo whatever's on WH so span on Rainbow Riches... Won £1.60. Covered a couple of mug accas anyway! :) #everylittlehelps

Bit naughty... But ordered our iMac today!!! Hit £650 and Mrs Geek has a bursary we hadn't budgeted for so MB will be MUCH easier on a 27" 5K screen instead of 13" laptop

been getting the mrs into the no deposit offers tonight - she found a site listing a few - casino room being one - 45 x wagering requirement and she won £3 on the free spins and she's only gone and turned it into £100 after wagering on twinspin.

Lucky so and so!!

A quick question about MBing, only started this week. For those more experienced did you find when you first started that you were having to wait around until bets finished before you could then have enough in the lay betting site for the liability. I've got a free 30 bet with bedfred and 10 with 32redsport and another 10 with coral i think coming in the next day or so. To make a ok bet with the 30 free bet i guess i'll need around 80-100 in my bet fair.

I guess it all comes a bit easier once i have a regular decent amount in betfair and speeds the betting up. If that makes sense? Just want to make sure i'm on the right track.

When you first started out, you do find that your Exchange always seems to be too low for comfort. Even now in my Smarkets account I have over £800 and at times even this is not enough to do all that I always want to. My Betfair account is just over £40 as I am waiting for some bets to complete.

As you progress you need a large exchange account to handle all the Muggs and also all the offers that come along.

Yep, first few months can be slow if you are waiting to withdraw from a bookie and then pay into the exchange. Its gets much easier when you have a nice exchange float and money to use at the bookies especially when you start on the reloads. Although January has been very poor for reloads in previous months I've have £1.5k in play some weekends, gets scary but stick with it.
