It is a "criminal" offence, you are discriminating against the min wage odds compilers,and other similar. Next you will be asking about opening a FOBT shop.

Too late apparently it's all over Laugh Damm yield management systems !!! LaughLaughLaughLaughLaugh

1/ get a disguise
2/ learn different accents
3/ cry in front of an Fobt
4/ put your fist through it
5/ discover new towns, cities even countries
6/ Ask cashier to pick a number between 1 and 6
7/ Back said number in next bags race
8/ Get chummy with clive and banks (they're onside)
9/ Never call it arbing
10/ Get a thick skin

You are now qualified for £10-£25 max stake bets but you are no longer entitled to free tea/coffee

Good luck and be disciplined Wink

If you're making money ,who cares what anyone else thinks/says. If you are doing it right then unfortunately you will last a month if you're lucky but honestly wish you all the best Happy

All I wanted to know was what peoples view are on it

It seems that 5% is a good profit but you have to bet so much, although increase stakes

If you have £100 on horse at 10 /1 and can lay £90 at 7/1. You now have £10 at 37/1 and a definite 'edge'. Do what you want from there. but if you taking money no matter what result(inc comm) then you have to be well ahead of the odds or you will be putting 1000s on to get pennies

So you want punters to give you advice on how to get in front of them in the queue for the 7-1 so you can try to sell it back to them at 6-1 on here..?

You really want to do all that for a few pennies? - pretty sad life for those who attempt it.

when i used to work for korals there was guy who used to arb on greyhounds,he would place 250 pound bets every time and sit with a mobile glued to his ear,so obvious what he was doing and didnt last very long when i restricted him to 10 pound bets.bookies dont like it full stop so be prepared for lots of rejection
