Week 3: 13 - 18July
Week 3 was all in all a good week, here's how i did:
At The Spin Room I made £170 from the welcome bonus.
I combined a TGT post of the month free bet with the betshop 50% to £10 bonus and made £53.51 (waiting for the tgt £50 refund but I'll count it as profit anyway).
At paddy power made £10.60 from a reload.
I did betway introductory offer, but messed it up. I originaly layed 1 tick below the asking price at 9 but of course it drifted out and before i realised it was at 14.5 so only made £13.2 out of the £25 snr.
I did three different 32red reload offers. Made £34 from the first one, lost £25 on the second and made £34 on the third.
I started the William Hill sign up offer and made £42 from the qualifier and first £50snr.
Did two reload offers at ladbrokes casino, made £5.5 on one and broke even on another.
I made £5.85 trading and betfair gave me a £5 welcome bonus on the trading account.
So all in all over target for the week.
Week 3 P/L: £350.1.
Culmative P/L: £589.69 out of the target £750
Next week I will aim to finish Will Hill (sportsbook and casino) and focus on some mobile casinos.
EDIT: Actually make that £7.29 trading! I have attached my trading p&l for today (Saturday).
Week 4: 19 - 25 July
Another successful week bringing in slightly over £400 pounds. For me the weeks main achievement was that I started arbing (for it's own reward and not as part of a free bet). To be honest i'm finding looking for odds really dull work so we'll see how much I continue doing it. There must be an easier way to find them than scraping through site after site? Granted though I haven't yet had the courage to start arbing horses. The other thing that is doing really well is the trading. This week saw my stake going from £3 up to £5, but more on that later. Apart from that i signed up to a few new books and did a few reloads, nothing special:
Finished the William Hill introductory sportsbook offer (25 £10 bets for 5 £10 snr, http://www.thegamblingtimes.com/boar...ew-signup.html). Made £50.48 from that.
Refered a friend to tgt (The Gambling Times | Viewing Article "Refer a Friend") and got £50 from that.
Did wildjacks mobile casino (£100 bonus with 10xb wr http://www.thegamblingtimes.com/boar...e-casinos.html) and made a very poor £41.
Did a 32red reload (10% bonus with 30xb wageringhttp://www.thegamblingtimes.com/boar...vite-only.html) and made £140.
Thanks to Andy who graciously gave up his trader of the week prize money. Which meant that I got it! (http://www.thegamblingtimes.com/boar...9-07-09-a.html) That's £10 pound.
Did a betshop tgt bonus (100% to £20 with 3xb+d wr http://www.thegamblingtimes.com/boar...ers-bonus.html) and made £14.73. I heavily underlayed.
Refered someone to betafterbet (£10 with 8xb wr http://www.thegamblingtimes.com/boar...erbet-raf.html) so got £5.53 from that. Another heavy underlay.
Signed up to betchronicle, a very nice £50 sr with 1xwr (http://www.thegamblingtimes.com/boar...snr-match.html). Made £47.40 from that.
Did a bwin reload (£4 bonus with 3xb+d wr http://www.thegamblingtimes.com/boar...-accounts.html), 20p from that, every little helps!
Made £19.69 from arbs and £28.32 from trading.
Week 4 P/L: £407.35.
Culmative P/L: £997.04 out of the target £1000
So close to being back on target!
In terms of trading it was a really good week. I am starting to see that what race and what time of day your trading makes a big difference. Some races i was very much fighting to not come out with a loss. I remember one particular race where i spent about 10 minutes trading, places over 50 bets and ended up greening up for exactly nothing.
Saturday started as my worse day, i was almost £3 down after the first few races, but it ended up being my best. I have posted the p/l.
For next wek i am planning to do 188bet and probably the 10% 32 red reload again. Also I will do William Hill casino (which i was meant to do this week). I will also do some more trading in the final run till the end of the competition and do some more arbs (so i can earn a nice prize: http://www.thegamblingtimes.com/boar...-must-opt.html).
What happened here Grandthrax?

My experience of casinos is limited to playing Blackjack and using the charts to keep the house edge to a minimum. perhaps you're playing different games I don't know how to play?
I underlayed quite a lot. I think i set it up so that if it won at betfair i got practiculy nothing but if it won at bwin i would make ~£10. Not sure why i did this.Probably cos i didn't like the idea of scraping through odds again and again trying to get through the wr only for a few pounds.

I generally only do the ones that a good expected return and a low chance of busting out, and i normally play with the lowest stake possible.

I will have to keep a close eye on the casino threads from now on.
how comes you havent gone back in for the 32red paypal bonus?
I thought you could claim up to £1k in bonuses via that?
Don't think i haven't tried! I stupidly withdrew my profits from Paypay and when i tried to re-deposit I found that my Paypal account has been limited; i can no longer deposit by card. Instead i tried by e-check which took almost a week only to have it declined by 32red.

What a waste of a brilliant offer. Hopefully this will be the start of a trend and there will be another offer next month.
My account was also limited but I managed to verify whatever they needed and it was unlimited a couple of days ago - took about 4 days to get it sorted. Previous to that had done 3 1k deposits. Only 3 to go now till I have had the full 1k bonus. I think on the 6th the bonus wasn't automatically added so had to go via livechat and it was added no probs. The 2 since then have been added instantly. Currently over 600 up on this and hoping the variance stays in my favour.
