Could you not just throw in a £10er on a risky bet every now and again? I assume they are more sophisticated than that

There’s a lot of chat in matched betting circles about mug betting and whether it’s worthwhile, but you’d need to take poor matches (where the back and lay odds are far apart) and it can eat into your profits. There’a no real evidence it works so I’ve tended not to.

Honestly once I lose Bet365 I’m probably done as I make so much money from that account. Although a lot of bookies are partner friendly so I’ll pprobably just sign Sal up to them all and start again. :D

I just mean if you're making £200 a week, place a couple of £1 bets on 5-1 bets, don't worry about matching them. Take the 1% hit and occasionally some of them Will win any way.

It’s not about the odds at the bookie. It’s about how close the back and lay odds are. Plus putting £1 bets on after I’ve been putting £100 bets on would be so weird and probably futile.

Saw this on eBay earlier and thought I'd mention it in case it was of interest to someone here - Jet Set Radio machine. Pachislot rather than traditional fruit machine, but it does look rather nice and £200 seems a good price. Not that I have the money, the room or a mean to collect it, but still. :)

Think I’m jacking matched betting in. Don’t have time for casino and with sports I’m restricted on most of my best accounts. Don’t have the time or energy and would like to use the remaining £2.5k I have left.

It served a purpose and I made £5.5k from nothing when times were tough, so I’ll always be thankful for that! If I have time in the future I may do it all again in Sal’s name, but for now I think that’s me done.

A 'Pub Fruit AWP' online slot with a 1000x stake jackpot, what could possibly go wrong?

I skipped along through the video just to watch the balance go up and down, but even at 20p, it looked like you got a fair bit of playtime for your money. The base game looked deathly dull though.

The base game is basically just the 'feature entry' trail (even though the game has the standard style 1-8 number entry that is fed by the base game), you just totally ignore it and concentrate on the feature board. Towards the end of the video I do designate the 'base game' as essentially being non-existent, and the focus being on the DOND game/BIG MONEY delineation up top, which is basically where the entire game is.

Certainly it's not like proper AWPs whereby the reels are an integral part of the game in terms of getting wins and being connected to the feature board, note that not a single one of the features actually references the base game reels in any way, i.e. Super Hold or Step To Nearest Win or Stepper features or suchlike.

It was a fun game to play though, far more so than normal online slots.

Its definitely an odd one - there was a Deal or No Deal like it a while ago and actually there are now two more - another DOND with the 3 hi low reels in the middle and a Top Cat game that has a RollerCoaster look to it

From what I've seen on them they basically pre set what you can get to - so you have a board - the best it will offer you is X times stake and as soon as you have the chance to get above that that you will get the cash out square - however sometimes the cash out squares give you the big prizes
