I'm a bit confuzzled (doesn't take much)
I just went to place a bet on Smarkets and it came up after I confirmed the bet as 'placing'.
It is now not showing on the right hand side or if I check today's placed bets in my account but the amount in the market has definitely decreased as it would if I had placed the bet.

Is there anywhere else I can check? I don't want to place my bet with the bookies until I can see it but I dont get where it has gone!

Anyone know what might have happened?
Thanks

I had it set ready to go on the bookies, its just because there was only just enough in the market that I wanted to make sure it was ok first. Lucky I did or I could have been in trouble.

[member=4595]Leece[/member] Click onto 'Account' and you'll be able to see your activity for the day. If it's not there then it did not place - don't judge it by money removed from the market, because someone else could've got their bet matched before yours.

They have a live chat if you want to double-check it.

NEVER lay a bet first before backing at the bookies. If the odds at the bookies decrease you can severely increase your qualifying loss/decrease your profit.

Probably a daft question but wouldn't the same be true the other way around if the odds at Smarket shot up?
I normally find if I am placing bets close to kick off that Smarkets is more likely to dart around than the bookies?
Normally I do do the bookies first, though I always have both set up first so I just have to click go on both as I still check about 600 times before placing a bet.

Will try and remember to always do the bookies first though from now though. :D

That is true, which is why you should have both bookies and exchange ready to do within seconds of each other. However, there are a couple of possibilities you can do with a lay bet that's moved (over/underlay, wait for the odds to drop back down, place the lay bet anyway and hope it matches, give it a minute and more money might come into the market etc.) and it's a much easier fix - you just change the lay odds in the calculator and it's done. If you've already laid and the back odds at the bookies change then there's not much you can do about hoping they shift and it's more difficult to change.

Also I find that odds at the bookies might change drastically whereas not AS much at the exchange (unless we're talking the last few minutes before a horse race).

Did you find your missing bet?

Thanks [member=2431]Uhhhhh[/member] I still have so much to learn.

I spoke to live chat and it definitely didn't get placed. They couldn't tell me what happened though.

I am sat on a few free bets from accas at the minute as there don't seem to be good enough matches, grrr!
