Dam F****d up big time,lost 350 quid!!
My misses is going to kill me,I made a big mistake and being short of time I decided to bet on a horse race. I layed a horse on BF then backed my horse on gamebookers, to my horror I realised I had layed the horse in the place section.I was pacing up and down hoping it would win or not come in the top 3 but sure enough it came second and I found myself 350 quid down.
I am seriously pissed off and have lost all my last 2 months profit in one go and my confidence,I am ment to be buying baby stuff as the wife is 3 months gone.Right I need to get back on track,but I have already joined around 40 online bookmakers since I started this.
maybe I should look at the bonus's at casino's I need to get this 350 quid back before she finds out.Problem is I dont know how to play the games at the casino's.I have heard of a program called casibot.
Help and suggestions would be greatly received.
Whatever you do mate don't rush into anything, don't know if doing casinos is the greatest idea if you're short on cash and need money in the near future - especially for a new addition to the family - because the variance on casinos can be unpredictable. When I make a transaction mistake / loss I always think above all that it's an isolated thing and offset it against the profit I've made and make sure I learn from it - usually double/triple checking everything I do for the next few days. It's when the 'isolated mistakes' start becoming more frequent that the problems come up...
Hopefully you've been making plenty of profit since you started, perhaps just accept this loss and offset it against the profits you've made.
Dont do anything for 24hrs. Do absolutely no betting whatsoever. Nothing.
You dont NEED to do it now, and anything you do now can be done just as well later its going to take them all time to pay you over the weekend anyway so now, tomorrow or Monday morning makes no overall difference.
If your cross/angry/ fell a "need" to win, then dont gamble, you will only make it worse. I have been there and it hurts, but this is the best advice you will get, do nothing for 24hrs.
Tomorrow im sure we will come up with a good plan to get you back on track. But do it tomorrow.
Have a plan and stick to it
When did you realise you had layed the wrong market? Why didnt you back it back at slightly lower odds then go to the win market and lay it there instead? You would have had a tiny profit or small loss but by the sounds of it you just gambled a lot of money you didnt have to lose and thats crazy.
Im not saying this to be a dick but its important you laern something from this or it is a complete waste. If you make a mistake correct it dont just cross your fingers.
I lost £180 the over week, i felt sick! so know how you feel mate i had a few days off and then started again and now check everything about three times!
It happens to everyone, do not rush into any bets as this is where mistakes will be made. I dont really know anything about casino bonuses so i will leave that down to someone else. chin up mate!
I realised not long after,I feel sick as a parrot but I have done loads of back and lay bets and never made a mistake. It was a horse race so had no time to work out a recovery plan,I just simply rushed into my bet and chose the place market for the horse instead of just backing it to lose. I am gutted but it shows you can make a mistake.

Thing is I was not being greedy just making a standard lay and back bet just to make 30 quid,bet on the wrong market fucked up and lost 350 quid.I have been feeling stupid all day and above all letting my family down,I have been telling the wife how well I am doing and dont worry I will get us extra money. Now I have not told her, I hope I can get this money back before she finds out.
OK its now24hrs later, i really hope you feel better. We have all been there, you are not the first and you wont be the last to do it. Just make sure you learn from it, dont do it again, and it wont be a complete waste. If you cant afford to have a £300 loss on a race then trade out of it and take a garunteed £30 loss, that is annoying but it want lose you sleep.
Try not to rush again though, it sounds like it took you a while to get there, dont now think you can/will make £500 in a week. You might be able to but dont try to force the issue. Slow and steady wins are the key, try to win a few small amounts just to get your confidence back and then increase over time.
Im not sure where to advise you look/go next as i dont know what your eligible for, and site you find and do want a hand with i will certainly help you with the theory/bets i would place. There are well over 100 sites with +EV bonus offers though and i have had over 200 different bookmaker accounts since 2004 so you really havnt run out. Go through the TGT list, maybe ask about the current bonus BEFORE you join and deposit. The Irish bookies (see main sportsbonus thread) are a good source not on the TGT list.
RE Casinos = I have never used any "bot" to play BJ and wouldnt advise it, its lazy and also breaks all T&C of the sites and if they just dont pay you then you are on your own. Some forum members do use it I know but thats up to them. Instead I would suggest you PM KidPoker or ask on the Casino forum thread, he has a good deal going with Casinos and will give you lots of help, do one at a time, dont rush those either do one at a time from start to finish and money back, THEN do next one. Its not hard to go through his list and make £500 or so (read some of the diaries which are quite recent) BUT dont rush into it, seriously, do one at a time.
Have a plan and stick to it
