it doesn't even matter if you're a decent selector of bets, the overround will kill most people, those few percent add up long term
masta, you got me right there. Haven't got a clue what you're talking about. My view is if you can find something that works, for me the search and the dream goes on, where most people fail I feel, myself included is, how many times has this been said? you just have to stay with it and if that means going a day or two without a bet, and that can be the difference between winning and losing I reckon.
As for the slots, the wheel and the pretty lights, and the cards, I mean "higher or lower " for chris' sakes, I really don't get that. I get sent free spins occasionally but I wouldn't know how, best not go there imo.

Some excellent posts there, really illuminating for someone like me, who has been gambling for longer than I care to remember. What has been mentioned in the above posts would be alien to me. I spent a lot of time today absorbing the key points of the posts. I am going to have to overhaul my betting and look at it in terms of numbers, rather than horses or football teams, this won't come easily I can say with out any doubt I will basically start from scratch, the concept of perhaps turning 2K into 3K after a year, is a shocker for me. I have often turned 100 into 1500/2000 over a few days only to fritter it away and more in a few hours.However if I had adopted that approach since I signed up to the machine I would possibly be paying PC at this stage.Many many thanks for the responses, and advice, it's time to start again.
Don't bet on horses, dogs or football. Bet on niche markets where if you study you will have more knowledge than bookmakers or folks that bet on exchanges.

Alot of folk who do not have a passion for horseracing believe that its totally bent and you can only win with inside information . This is 100% false info .
You are correct, the bookies always win at horse racing over a period of time. Same with dogs and football.

this post is bang on the money in regards all the different opportunities horse racing has to offer for research
