Pretty much. They’ve obviously analysed my betting patterns and seen that I only take close matches or use promotions and don’t do any mug betting. I basically take too much value from the bookies and I’m not the sort of customer they want. :)


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. :)
