Just gone through to check how I got on for the week upto last friday and found I made £397.97 in the week. Giving me a total of £607.51 which means I've reached my total (£400). Now me being me I'm just as likely over the next 2 weeks to lose all this gambling on wether it will be a white christmas or not.
Not really sure what i made the money on, mainly been betting on 1 or more goals in a game and bits on horses. Also got the freeview box through from 188 bet this week, although not sure what I'm going to do with it. We've only got 1 tv in the house and its got sky plus, it seems a bit excessive to buy a new tv just because of a free box. Could be a useful emergency christmas present I suppose.
Right back to suffering with my man cold.

I'm now in the process of trying to wind accounts up for the new year. I'm away working abroad for 2 weeks, so dont want to get stuck in anything else before I go.
All in all, i've only made £337.50 to date since starting this challenge, and hope to make some more on friday/saturday, so will update if i make any decent progress from then.
Last month was a good month for me, and I hope to post some good results in the early months of the new year to make up for December.
Congrats on reaching your target!

That’s it folks! I am calling it a day early for Xmas and taking a well earned break from work and AP’ing, so only fair I report my results. I set a target back in mid November to make just over £520 based on making about £250 to £300 a month, my normal monthly average.
All I can say is I should set a target more often; total profit made was....£1,614. You could say I went for it!
So, here’s the tale of the tape...
Did their £80 casino reload, bet large and got lucky. From reading the threads I may have got someone else’s variance!
Two £10 reloads – a good steady source of income from this likeable outfit.
Did their 10% refund offer plus the infamous “Not-so-happy hour”
Could see this one ending in tears long before the event, so set myself a target to take just over £100 and head for the hills. Happily did so and stayed under the radar.
Cherry casino +£62
Doubled up two monthly reloads – won one, lost one, and ground the successful one out on Trey poker.
Coral games +£21
A number of small offers
Two small reloads
Various offers picked off mainly in Nov; hopefully Jan will prove better than December.
Stan James +£280
Most of the profit was the casino SUB, but there were other bits and bobs including the weekly casino comp.
Beat bully / Beat Victor / Blue Sq predictions
VC Bet advent calendar +£8
First foray into US books with a $500 bonus, $10k rollover. Found matches with Pinnacle very quickly, though also got a swift lesson in foreign exchange exposure, not to mention bankroll management when the first eight bets all won at Brobury! Luckily got in about a week before they pulled the plug on UK accounts.
Second foray into US books with a SUB and a reload. What a pain, though, having to withdraw to your bank rather than back to Moneybookers. What is that about?
Rare promo – under-layed with dire odds.
Blasted through the SUB dutching with other bets
Paddy Power -£4
Did the Xmas offer (bet £600 across 12 days for £50) for a £4 loss. Free £50 bet to come.
Virgin casino promo +£12
TGT fivers +£30 (thanks!)
Forex loss / Mugs / Other / Bad record keeping / Errors and general chaos in trying to do too many offers at once -£170
One final thing – thanks to all the regular posters who have provided so much help in 2010 and to everyone have a Merry Xmas. Let’s look forward to a prosperous New Year, hopefully at the expense of our bookmaking friends!
Set a target of £2000 on 11/11, met target first week of December so set a revised target of £3000 and currently £50 away.
Admittedly my skills analysing my records leave a lot to be desired but in terms of the existing offers I've been doing most if not all have been posted above.
Offers of note were everyone's favourite casino promotion and a lucky £250 win at Bills playing Sensible Soccer (risk free fiver).
Did a couple of new subs, including admiralbet & dafabet.
Remaining made from arbs, cashback, poker, and the odd bit of trading/mugging now and then.
£2747.15 from 11/10/2010 to 25/12/2010
A decent chunk of which is from betfair casino
A bit behind on the assignments though.
Disaster for me, made just over £300. It was a tough task as with a 14 month old running around it was always going to be a struggle and then my computer broke so was without internet for a week and then snow put paid to my ambitions, I'm a horses and football man so most of my would be bets were postponed.
Anyway £300 is one of my best months yet so thanks to OP for providing inspiration.
Breakdown of results:
4.22 - 888 offer
83.15 - allyoubet sub
15 - Bodog refer a friend
8.48 Coral - SUB
75 - Eurosport bet SUB
30.25 - Extra SUB
250 - Luxbet
Then I lost £150 in a crazy trading experiment trying to complete a WR. Could of been much worse as but for quick thinking would of been a £500 hit!!
