One thing I would pay attention to: please make sure you understand the rule differences between your back and lay markets.
The other day I was hit with a huge liability when a game was canceled after the first half: my back bet was voided but the lay counterpart remained matched until the game finished a couple of days later.
Hi everyone. I'm about to start my foray into match betting and finding it a little daunting. Once I pick things up I tend to be fine with them, but I do struggle a little when I first try things!
I've been using betfair for years now so understand how it works, etc. and I think I have a decent understanding of the principles involved. The main problem I have is knowing exactly where to start!
I found some threads about good bookies to start with, but almost all of them referred to cashback from this site, so that is how I stumbled across this place, and it seems like there are lots of helpful people here so that will definitely come in handy!
I look forward to chatting with you all!
And if someone can recommend a first bookie to use, that would be great.
I found the easiest ones to begin with are:
Bet at Home
Plus of course the free £20 at BetDaq
The first SR offer I would start with is £25 SUB at betchronicle. The only issue is they sometimes ask for ID on withdrawal, but that is something you have to get used to anyway
The first SNR I would recommend is corals £50 SUB, it’s not on their site but here is the link: Coral.co.uk | £50 FREE BET | Sports, Games, Casino, Poker & More
If you have a big enough float I would recommend you do the coral offer first, as it is likely not to be around for long.
Hope this helps and its only my option, so others might give different advice, up to you to do your own research really.
Good luck and hope it helps
One day you have it........Next it's AllGone
I have a question with betting on the horses.
What happens to a freebet should your selection get withdrawn before the off.
would you expect a credit or is it tough luck?

Thanks for the reply Mariner.
It is a specific bookie, couldn't see it in the t&cs. I don't want to be more specific yet as I have e-mailed customer services, and am waiting for a response.
If a horse is withdrawn from a race before it goes under starters orders the bet is usualy assumed to be void and the bettor can get a refund of his stake.
