It can be done but it's highly illegal, or it may have been left over from someone elses bet.

Mike as Joel said:

I want to lay said horse and put out $5.02, Joel comes in and takes $5 of my offer leaving .02 remaining, which you then come in and take.

I'm amazed that none of you seem to be aware that these 2 cents bets are a stunt that has been going on for years.

Betfair did seem to stop it for a while.

But it looks like it's back.

It has been going on for years, but i can assure you, anyone continually doing it will receive a call / email advising their account will be closed if it continues.

API's that work with Betfair, The Geeks Toy for example allow you to request matches for any amount.

min bet is $5 but if you put a bet up for $5 and then change it to $5.50 you then have two bets instead of one bet. one of $5 and one of $0.50. then you cancel the $5 bet and there's your magic 50c bet

that's how its done...

It could be any of those, some involving skullduggery, some not. You would have been better off having only 1 cent matched so you would have paid no commission on your 13 cent win

Fuking 50c bets then Magic then throw in Conspiracys  I'm more confused than ever. CrazyCrazyCrazy
