A price can become completely rancid 10 seconds after placing a bet let alone 30 seconds. Have noticed it at several bookmakers. Would have thought 5-10 second max should be the law for accepting or declining an in running bet.

You'd be mad in the head to bet them in-running without a pre-agreed timescale.

Slow count, we used to call it when I was a betting shop manager - now it's the
bookies that do it and not the punters.

Obviously if the gambling commission gave a f--k about anything other than money laundering and gambling addicts they would ban this practice.

"around a 5 second delay"

It shouldn't be "around" anything - they should specify an exact number.

Agree Dave1357, Gambling Commission dont give a flying about players. They want to make money, money, money. Real players are there to feed them.

The bets will probably have to be agreed by the traders hence the time. They should then offer the customer 5 seconds to accept
the bet once ok'd by the trader.

...and 5 seconds for the trader to accept the punter's acceptance...

Just tried out a new bookmaker, placed a small sports bet at 2/1 and got accepted a minute later (when it was 4/1 on their site). Surely that's against the law.

Anyone remember Ladblokes in running prices on horse racing bout 8 or 9 years ago? ... an absolute bats**t crazy stevie wonder at the controls licence to print money ... while your account lasted, which wasn't very long admittedly but made a smallish fortune in a couple of weeks all the same.

Happy days!
