Hope this is the right place to ask this.
Whilst reading some posts this morning I have noticed the Betfair X joinup mentioned a lot.
Is this just an opportunity for new people to Betfair or can existing users benifit from the reduced commission.
It was eurobet/gamebookers on Vicenza v Lorenzo this saturday 1x2 1st half. The odds have now been cut to be more in line with other books. I have emailed asking for confirmation the bet will stand. Tbh I think it looks alright now as Eurobet were offering higher odds across the board on this game.
4.333 are odds of 10/3 and 3.5 are odds of 10/4, so it possible it was a typo and therefore palpable.
Emailing is a good idea, although Gamebookers CS are rubbish. If you don't hear back then you could phone, although it's much better to have is in wirting
You have to sign up for a new account using the BetfairX affiliate link. It's fine to have more than one Betfair account so no problems on that score, just depends if you think the 10% rebate per month is worth it if your current discount rate is very high. Personally I did it when my discont rate was at 12% and I definitely don't regreat it, took about 2 months to get back to the same discount level.

I doubt Gamebookers would palp that, even if it was a typo they would just take it on the chin unless it was for thousands and thousands of £s.

Its probably worth it whatever rate you are on now since the points decay would initially be 15% of low amounts getting back to where you were wont take long, and the whole time every £1 you do actually pay in commission, you are getting 10p back at the end of the month*

Its a bit more complicated than that but thats the gist, T&C apply, blah blah blah, PM Munk for more details but everyone who has moved to it has been very happy so far.

Hi, looking at horse racing on sportingbet. Looking at the Lingfield card it has one win only market and the rest offer 'each way terms'. Just wondering waht this means. If I back and lay, what will I get at sportingbet if my bet wins, will i get a full return that I can lay, and then will I still get some money back if horse is placed.
Each way is a split bet, half goes on the win market, the other half on the place (actually £10 each way will cost £20, £10 goes on each market).

Thanks Morph. Worked it out. The races that have each way at top are races that offer each way bets. I see now that you tick the box on betting slip to place an each way bet.
Everything was ok in the end got the odds confirmed by eurobet. The bet also won there (was the least likely result) and they paid out fine. Been spotting more and more arbs lately and getting used to where to look for them. Managed to get five decent ones on today each for a relatively small return but its best to spread them around anyway I think.
