Once upon a time we ran a Scoop6 and actually won it, which was quite nice. There is a nice summary of what happened Here. It was a bit of a freak happening though there is a lot lot more luck than skill in it and it should be seen as not much different from playing the National Lottery. Even if you only play after many many rollovers so the prize pool becomes greater than your chance of winning that might make it +EV but it does not actually increase the chance of winning.
This week is the anniversary week that we won it (there is a little reminder on some peoples diaries) so it might be fun to run another for old times sake. There has been other efforts arranged now and then by other people which seemed very popular so if this is also something people would like to see happen regularly it might continue. It can become a very expensive habit though as winnings are large but also rare so each "go" will be limited to one £10 entry per person. This is enough to give us a decent float to use but not enough for anyone to worry too much about losing.
If anyone would like to join please send £10 to email@example.com as this will buy one ticket. Include your TGT username and what it is for in the payment please. ONE entry per person max.
If all entries could be in by Saturday evening next week please (5th April) that is the cut off date to enter. After the final total is known on the day we buy the entry I will purchase the remaining number of tickets needed to make it a round number in the stake amount so we use the lot in one go. We will probably enter the weekend after (April 18th) as long as the prize pool has not just been won the previous week.
The bet will be placed at wherever I (Andrew Heaford) thinks best on the day of the race and a photo of the slip or screenshot shall be uploaded here that morning. The Horses shall be decided by a mixture of suggestions from people on this thread, outside sources and my final decision.
Should we win anything all winnings will be paid within 7 days of myself receiving it back from the bookmaker. All winnings will be paid back to the Skrill account used to buy your entry. If you are a TGT Premium Member there will be no admin fee at any stage, if you were not at the time you entered there shall be a 5% fee deducted from your winnings.
Any questions please ask here, but as a rule it will be done in the sammer manner/format as the other ones I have organised. This post will be updated periodically with who has entered so you know it has been received and you are in, it will definitely be done on Sunday 6th as a final list so if you think you should be in then but are not listed contact me urgently.
