It get's even dafter than that, whizz kids. Try dutching a race on the sportsbook to give them a free tenner. They simply say 'no thanks mate we don't want it'.
I know, it's truly unbelievable
It's like going to a Bangkok market trying to barter for a T-shirt and the vendor starts with 150Baht and I say 200Baht only for vendor to tell me to piss off.

In 2005 all you young punters.There was an American Track called Great Lakes Downs or GLD as we called it back then.With say 10 minutes to post there was about $300,000 matched on Betfair with super tight spreads and about $1000 matched on the oncourse GLD Tote.Great days so easy to trade and gamble away before the PC charge took over.
they were the days paying 4% commission so that you could bash away at most markets, snowballing the betfair liquidity !! I even used to have friends around and we would punt on the American racing all night !! unfortunately P/C destroyed the very essence off reinvesting winnings into other markets, creating the snowball affect. Consequently many traders pulled back and concentrated on their profitable markets and the liquidity either stagnated or declined. The only surviving market is cricket where you can now obtain great value

Sports betting is just starting to be legalized in India. Although, illegal betting is widespread and fines are rare and very small, less than $10. At some point I expect we will see an Indian betting exchange.
Draft legislation for sports betting in India is being based on the UK gambling laws which was being drawn up back in July with a 2 year window to complete !!
