Hello to everyone!
Yes the forum sure has ballooned in 2009, it is a shame all the Americans have gone (except Kid) but i suppose everything has a shelf life. It is a bit annoying the site has grown now because in the next few weeks it is being relaunched and should be "Much" better, but it does a job for now I suppose.
The forum exists and is funded because of/by the website TheGamblingTimes.com which reviews and lists every sportsbook we think it is a good idea to have an account with. We try to provide the best bonuses for joining but if that is not possible discussing better bonus offers from other sites/links in the Sportsbook bonus section is just fine and even encouraged. If people could NOT promote other cashback type sites though it would be appreciated.
There were some great introductions there, as a bit of fun everyone who posted "Hello" in 2009 can have a £25 bet at Betshop.com (They do not currently have and have no plans to introduce a sign up bonus so that wont confuse things).
If you have an existing account use that but if you dont then please sign up using the following link, it MASSIVELY increases the chances of the site continuing to exist and provide this kind of offer:
I STRONGLY recommend you use Moneybookers to deposit, it will go through straight away, you wont need to provide ID to deposit and when you come to withdraw you will recieve it within hours if it is during the working week. If you dont have a moneybookers account then please join through this link for the same reasons as above:
How this will work is put £25 into BetShop and bet it on absolutely anything you want, if it wins then that is it, send them a scan of your ID (They will want this before you can withdraw) and withdraw your profit. Should it lose send an E-mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org with "Forum hello promotion" or something as the Subject stating your name, TGU Forum username, and Moneybookers E-mail address, attach a screenshot of the losing bet and you will have £25 refunded to your moneybookers account by us.
This refund is for your FIRST bet at Betshop only, and please bet on something within the next 7 days, so bets MUST be placed by Sunday 18th Jan. I appreciate a lot of people ALWAYS lay bets but it might be more fun to just have a punt and let it ride. Who is your favourite team or what is the next sporting event you are watching? With an unlayed £25 on it and you will probably find it is so much more fun to watch, and your getting the £s back if it loses anyway so "Easy come, Easy Go". Or at the very least underlay it a fair whack, but this is all personal preference and obviously up to you.
For the avoidance of doubt qualifying people are:
Hutch (If there was another best Avatar competition you would win it)
For any questions about this I will start a new thread below, so this one can stay mainly full of "Hellos". If you (or anyone for that matter) ever has any kind of problem with either TGU or TGT or Topbetter then please do let me know and it will be sorted out: email@example.com
(Generally though if you want something done it is probably best to PM Munk about the forum, PM Craig or E-mail Fivers@thegamblingtimes.com if its a problem/querey with cashback at TGT, and for technical/website problems PM Ian. We dont own or have control of the site Topbetter but we are linked to it and highly recommend it and so E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org if you have a problem there, you get one months free trial at present if you want)
Have a plan and stick to it
barsteward, missed a freebie for being shy & retiring
A big hello to everyone here. Only just registered here but have been visiting it every now and then for a few months. Been mostly playing the casinos,recently but decided to get back to MBing- my love affair with video poker waining a bit ( I thought finding an arb a party was hard work- but just so many times you can watch having 4 to a royal in 50 hand JOB- and not hitting one fun)- really mustn't complain since the casinos have paid for a week in Vegas in Feb. So I'll be signing up to all their payers clubs taking the freebie chips and then moving on to the next casino- once a bagger always a bagger. - for the rpoints crew
Hi capsman, what's the story with your alternate caps name?!
Do they have one of these at rpoints though?
Good to have you onboard anyway, cheers
No no mopeds just plenty of pictures of horses wearing hats- the name just an old gaming name (the tendency to write every msg using alternate caps but only the name remains- fOr NoW tHaT iS)
hrhr... yes can't go wrong with pictures of horses in hats I suppose...
As I think I mentioned earlier Im from Adelaide one of Australias smaller cities therefore not very well known HOWEVER for the next 2 weeks we are on the world stage being the city hosting Lance Armstrong's comeback to Pro cycling...the place is a buzz!
What comp is that then? I'm a big cycling fan and had heard he was planning on doing the tour de france next year... will be interesting to see how he does in the run up to that. Chances are it won't be on UK TV though (well not the basic freeview/terrestrial)... will have to try and obtain it through other means
