They have greyhounds on the SSBT's in shops, you can use those to get the prices that you orginally would online on certain greyhound markets.

went into  a hills shop some years ago to have a bet in a sittingbourne race where lets say the show was not 100% representative of the actual chances. i wanted a 1x4x5 conb fc and tc comb. I said to the girl you look lucky pick me 3 numbers in this next race at sitters, she said 1x3x5, i said im not a fan of the number 3 can i change  that to 4 my lucky number??? she laughed and said ok. i wrote out a £10 comb fc and tc bet £120 stake.......as she went to ring it up i said stop i think you have a very lucky face im going to change that to £100 fc and tc comb stake £1200 she said your mad...i said you only live once....she took the the bet. oi oi, thats how you get on

It does go to trader on the ssbt's if the stake exceeds the limits that are set into the system.  What limits are there on dogs ?  I have no idea, these vary from sport to sport.  I've been able to get £200 to £300 on the rugby league on there no problems but then basketball limits are a lot less and American Horse racing went to trader for £40 at 6/4 one evening so it varies.

And Dr.Atkins is correct in a way, the machine doesn't automatically cut the price if multiple people bet on the same selection nearby, it will be just done by a trader as the SSBT prices are just the same as onine.  I think the machines are linked somewhere so for example, 2 machines in a shop, the limit is £200 on a certain selection, you can't have £200 on machine 1 and then £200 on Machine 2 straight after without it going to trader.  But if you leave it 5/10 minutes or so then you can have £200 on again as the machine resets itself to think it is a new customer after a certain length of time.  You will just probably get a phone call to the shop to ask about who placed those bets.

If you want to try and work out the limits for future use, just put £20 on your selection, then another £20 and another etc... eventually it will refer your bet to trader once the limit has been reached but you will have an idea of how much you can get on before it goes to trader.  Be warned, the traders are terrible... either having breakfast, fast asleep, or watching Jeremy Kyle, I have had to wait ten minutes in some instances for the bet to be granted or refused.
