The Vis, you can also add to that the fact they do not show the open bets to payout either, its complete and utter madness, the new site is designed by people that have no idea how to use the site.Old site definitely for me, the new site is unusable
In 2003, I got a six month contract to bet on-line at the big six bookmakers (there were five of us, in all) Each week for a year came a new task from simple tennis 1x2 to accumulators, etc.
Each week, a report on how long it took, easy, problems, etc. I was paid to be 'direct', no sugar coating.
I had no idea which bookmaker had commissioned it.
Then, four months in, one bookmaker started improving. And slowly I started seeing the changes implemented, aspects I had pointed out.
At six months, I got a call that they wanted to extend it another six months. Fine. I was the only one of the original ten and two others were added.
As the year went on, the site improved. Things I pointed out at first took a month then, in some cases, overnight. They took positives I said about other sites, improved their own and avoided negatives that everyone was doing
In the end, I came in for a final meeting at which point I met the the design team for a final view of the next version.
All nice, all enthusiastic. But one thing in common - of the ten in the room, only two gambled on-line.
It's like having someone that doesn't have a driver's license designing the functionality of a car.
The other problem is branding takes precident over functionality. The airlines often did this. As well, the platform is filled with 'ads' for events, casino, poker cutting down on the actuall space for the info that you are seeking.
All common problems with web design (design!) v functionality.
I swear the sportsbook is laid out to cause confusion. Look at the asian markets (the layout spread across the whole page, it gives no conditions of pay-out, returned stakes BUT has a huge block with blackjack/roulette and the latest casino game for the mindless).
Yawn....griping done for the month. Nothing to see here....time to move along.

Say it's not so that they're going to close down the old site in the summer? Could they show me the door any more effectually?20% of the IT staff's basic salary and all of the bonuses shd be given in free bets. The site wd improve pretty sharpish, imv!
then use an API. Gruss is 5 or 6 quid. bfexplorer has a platform that is similar to betfair with a few one touch functions for 5 or 10 quid.
