My mate told me he has 3k on some house didn't say the name. Would I f**k put that much on maybe 1k but I wouldn't go over that.

I used to be a bit of a gambler in my 20s but can take it or leave it now really, just cards these days. I have a pal who bets for a living, I've been on about him before on here,when someone was on about spread betting Danny I think anyhow, he never bets on national as he says odds are out the window, tells its own story I guess.

My mate is more in to his poker but if you where taking a piss in the pub beside him he would take a bet to see who could piss longer. He is doing well out of the poker. But a lot of flying around the world involved.

I just play cards with a few working fellas I know, not at a casino. But it's more bragging right more than cash.

4 horses dead so far this year. My grampa was a compulsive gambler (and a bit of an old c**t) but would never bet on steeplechase.
 
Nope don't bet on horses really I am doing a lot or arb betting at the moment... making quite good tax free money out of it to be honest but really should have started with a bigger betting bank...

I have a mug punt every now and again and the last one I did it made the bookies restrict Mt account... bastards

arb betting is when the odds to win and lose make a profit what ever the outcome.Thats why the bookies restrict accounts

I backed 5 horses yesterday and had nowt 3. finished but were no where. normally have at least 1 placed horse in the national....................many clouds came last and that was a big favourite. Great race though, no horses or jockeys injured........................(y)

yeah basically as @Arti said...

returns are about 5% upwards but place a fair few a day at the moment.... not done any for a week as I have been all over the place :D

You need to use a betting exchange as well to lay your bet off with. I.e your win bet with bet365 etc and your backing to lose on a betting exchange like betfair etc. You need an oddsmatching software to show you the available bets and odds

And you can't lose? Why arent more people doing it

because you can only do arbing for so long before the bookies get wind of what your doing and shut your accounts

Its not illegal but bookies arent keen on you winning all the time...........lol. There are only so many bookies available. you need multiple accounts etc.

I have about 50 accounts and all offer different odd so it's a case of which site offers the best odds....

I have software that alerts me to them and does everything other than place the bet....

Because the thought of betting 100 to get 5 profit does not seem worth it...

It's better returns than the bank is offering and I just keep placing bets.... got about 2500 floating about cyber space at the moment... Oh and being tex free makes it very appealing :)
