Think WR on Dafa is over £40k, I steered clear.
Smaller bonus is only £35, and still over £2k.
Yes, possibly not worth being locked in with that, smaller one maybe not so bad, possibly more so if they carry on with the £15 free bets on Saturdays.
Re the bodog88, have to get in there mega quick and ask on livechat first, on the face of it I would say it has already ended since it was only on offer until 'February 10th 2011 (23:59 GMT+8)' which was 2hrs ago (plus it seems to be gone from the promo page), although someone else has said on that thread that they asked livechat and it's still on. YMMV I think.
I meant 7-10 doing sports spreadbetting and normal spreadbetting (i.e. forex etc.)

Some are more difficult than others (i.e. the £200 refund on losses over a 7 day period which I haven't done yet) but can get £1000 easy over all of those.
When it comes to arbing, I really took the pee on the horses last year. I mean I was hammering arbs across a variety of account, making 3 figures a day without breaking a sweat.
I only did this for a few weeks though, once I got my totesport account limited as well as a few others, I slowed down, and eventually stopped. I donít have the figures to hand (on an old laptop) but I made just short of 5 figures. I recall one of my biggest arbs. It was with bet365 when I piled on a stupid horse arb, something like 17/9. Fully underlaid and made a killing when it came in.
I do miss those days, easy money, but I didnít want to sacrifice any of my major Uk based books.
With regards to Stan james, I donít think I am limited. Im sure I piled on a football arb a while back, way after opening betpack with no problems, but who knows. As I have said, other than the Sub and very occasional arb, I have hardly touched that account. I also happened to use a different email ans user name, which may have saved me.
Any way, today in terms of profit gained is a big fat zero. However, it hasn't been a big waste of time.
I have generated a list of around 12 books, which I aim to complete in the upcoming weeks.
I have also spent time reading the guides on how to dutch and how to effectively use Asian handicaps.
On a more positive note, sportingbet have automatically credited my £500 bonus, and I received that £90 reload offer from BAH today as well.
Dafabet is a no go for me at the moment, although it is on my list. I have them numbered in terms of order, based upon bonus amount, wagering requirement and any other factor that will make me favour another book first.
I have just got in, so it looks like I have missed the boat with regards to bodog88.
But considering I have made £0 today, I have gained a lot of knowledge as a replacement. The appeal-ability of dutching to eliminate commission, and possibly combine offers makes me wonder why it has taken me until now to read up on it!
Also all the Asian information will be useful, as I had often wondered what all those different numbers meant
Any way, off for some food now, Rib Eye Steak
Just wanted to say good luck - seems like you are doing something really worthwhile and I hope you make the target,
Well actually, today was not a totally betless (is that a word) day.
Decided to have a few trades whilst watching the darts and finished:
Total Profit to Date:
Interesting day today for both good and bad reasons.
Started off by signing up to youwin for their 25 euro free bet.
Place my 25 euro deposit on a horse arb, which won leaving me with 130 euros over there. Decided to arb them, as I was finding one every other race, and actually ended up finishing £90 up with the bonus still to come.
Then came the William Hill offers. I started with my risk free £5 on London Roulette which came to nothing yet again. Then I moved onto a 30% return of losses up to £150 on their live casino side.
I choose the option of going for a few smaller bets opposed to one big one and finished £110 up.
Then I managed to find a nice arb on a horse race to which I placed my account balance on, only £50 in there, (bloody fortunately, there is usually hundreds) and as I went to lay off, some intervening act decided to deprive my village from having........ electricity.....
Typically the horse was apparently beaten by a nose, meaning there was a £50 loss.
I then managed to make a huge £4 from trading with small stakes.
So in summary for the day:
25 euro free bet to come.
Due to the wagering on a SNR, and the fact I finished +£90 from the qualifying bets, I am tempted to partially mug it, we will see.
Will Hill Risk free offer
Another £5 refund to come.....
Will Hill Casino cashback offer
Simple, blackjack £10 hands,
The days cock up....
Need I say anything more,
Total days profit:
Total Profit to Date:
I have also started to read the guide on spreadbetting, but the weekend will mainly consist of me playing golf, trying to bet though my £2.5k sportingbet WR and attempting all the other various offers including:
- Betfair horse offer
- Betfair rugby multiple
- Will Hill £30 freebie
- Bet365 partial punting
- And anything else I can squeeze in before attending my cousins 13th birthday party.
I have done a hell of a lot of baking/cooking today too, as anyone in chat earlier will know, Im pretty knackered now!
Fantastic thing you are doing, though I am sure you would rather not be doing it (if you see what I mean..).
My mum had bowel cancer just over 3 years ago, and similarly had to have both an op and IV chemo, I was terrified of the C word when she told me, but thankfully she has been clear since the op. Most hospitals have a really good support network around there cancer units, so make sure your mum (and the rest of the family if needed) take advantage of that.
Also I got my parents sky a few months back and my Mum said if she'd have known about the record features etc, it would have been fantastic when she was a bit run down with the treatment - maybe an interim present, if they don't already have it?
Well today hasnít been quite as fruitful as I hoped, but I still have got a few things done.
I mugged my Youwin sub on the Man Utd game, picking 1-1 as the correct score. I was contemplating laying it off in-running but as I was working on potential WR if I won at the bookie, Man Utd scored, so there went that.
Signed up to Racebets.com last night and was given a 50% bonus up to 50 euroís which was gracefully received. Spent today arbing them and managed to withdraw the full 150 euros which should mean about £40 profit.
I then placed my William Hill £30 bet through the racing post app. Did that on a small arb, which netted me 46p profit with a £30 free bet to come.
I also realised that due to spending £50 in the vegas section of William hill earlier this week, I was entitled to a £5 free bet for a championís league match, so I dually claimed for that too.
Then went onto trying to place few bets on at sportingbet and I got £1k on a draw which lost, and I then placed £1.5k on another game, which also lost. I came away with just over £400 of the bonus in the end, which was satisfying.
I obviously am not gubbed there on the football (am on the horses), which in hindsight probably meant that my underlay was un-necessary, but hey ho, I am happy enough.
Didnít get on the betfair multiple offers as hoped, mainly due to time constraints, but I will aim to do them again in the future. Also with the unfortunate Newbury incident, I avoided bet365 today too.
Still not bad, and in summary:
William Hill offers
+£0.46 with £30 SNR to come
£5 SNR to come from Vegas promo too
Total daily profit:
(£35 SNRís to come)
Total Profit to Date:
+ £744.46 (+£35 SNR's to come)
Not bad considering I attended a 13th birthday party in between all that!!
Well, let me start by saying that this week has had me travelling up and down the country, so I have had less time than I would have liked to make money
Well, opposed to updating my diary on a daily basis, I have decided to place a weekly post.
Monday started ok, and I signed up to 188bet. Annoyingly I never made much of this offer because I kind of forgot to lay my bet, which of course lost; still, as it was a refund offer, I lost nothing.
I also utilised VCís torres offer on Monday and locked in a cheeky fiver, hoping he scored, but alas, he didnít. £50 million well spent eh.
Betinternet was my next bookie sign up, and one which I maximised due to some nice underlayed horse arbs which netted me a nice £100 profit after I had played through my bonus.
I also did a few Blu Sqr casino promos finishing about £15 up.
Did absolutely nothing on Tuesday
Wednesday was more fruitful due to the Champions League game, some in-play snooker, some risk free William hill offers and a few bits of trading.
On the Arsenal game, I took some value bets and arbs, making £180. This was largely made up of a cheeky in-play lay once Barca were 1-0 up, which paid off nicely. If only had had layed more. The rest of the money here game from Coralís very generous price of evens which seemed available until kick-off despite betfair being around the 1.86 mark.
Whilst I was on Coral I noticed a small arb on a snooker game which I also pilled on, didnít underlay this one, which turned out wise, and I made another £25.
I also took up Betclicks £10 reload offer, matching it off for £9 of profit.
Whilst I was on a roll, I had ago at the Perfect Pair Blackjack offer at Lads. Finished +£20 on the qualifying play, which was good as the double up of the bonus proved unsuccessful.
I also punted a free £5 Will Hill SNR today, which proved again unsuccessful.
Thursday was also quite a good day, although some risk free William Hill offers again proved pointless, and I am awaiting a few refunds.
Sticking with Wills, I received that £30 free bet with them via the Racing Post offer at the weekend. Not sure if all my recent casino play has increased my limits there, but I got it on a nice 8/1 shot which once layed off, gave me a £28 profit.
Then game the Liverpool game. Some arbs and trading on this game netted me a nice £250 profit, not bad considering I got in rather late on Thursday.
To finish the day off, I had a £10 risk free at 888sport. Again, I am expecting yet another refund.
Placed my £250 worth of bets at partybets, so thatís that one done. Got another 30% cashback offer at William Hill live casino, so went in big with a £500 hand, 19 against a 5 so was hopeful, only for the dealer to pull out the dreaded 6, 10 combo
So £350 down, but variance will equal out, so I am not to disheartened.
Better day today. Maximised an offer from boyles that gave me a refund if my horse came second. Placed my £200 bet, and my horse did come second giving me a nice £200 SNR. (The qualifying bet was a £5 arb too)
Used that £200 SNR on another horse arb, getting £193 out of it. Cant quite believe it, but I got £200 on a 16/1 shot.
Next up was the betfair 15% enhanced winnings offer. Ballsed this up a bit, but still made £20 out of it.
Overall Saturday's profits were the £350 I had lost the day before, which meant I was fairly satisfied.
Sunday brought nothing other than the settling of my Partybets bet which released my £25 bonus for about £20 profit. Cheers for the RAF Allgone by the way.
There was some other bits and bobs I did too, but other than writing down the profit/loss made, I cant remember what they where.
So basically my spreadsheet shows:
