Well done and thank you to the two blokes who thought they could blatantly arb using betfair mobile in this shop for crayford this week.

Its hard enough getting on anywhere these days without people being stupid.You have ruined this shop for everyone.

This shop will only take greyhound bets now at sp.

No,But sitting there with 2 mobiles each and backing up to 3 dogs a race is a bit of a give away.no bookie will tolerate that.

Ridiculous statement. Do you honestly think that Laddies are going to have their own track taken off the BAGS?

They could always sponser another.

Watching the on course betting and the betfair prices is like watching Sittinbourne all over again.

I will concede however, you guys would know more than me and I wasn't qualified to make that statement.

Yes knockout one was.

I can not see them getting on much in this area, We have been using this shop for around 5 months now and it is only 1 of 2 locally who would allow 2 x £100 bets at board prices per person at all tracks before picking up the phone.

Its took weeks to be allowed to do this and now its ruined.

Good luck to anybody who makes the game pay,but don't ruin someone else's income.

I would like to point out I don't live in Basildon :-)

gentlemen - have u sampled the delights of witham? god knows how they got the planning for it, but theres a joes, baldies, an indy and lads, within 50 yards of each other. and another lads 100yds down the road, just in case.

please feel free to take as much as poss out of the baldies shop. the manager is a rite**t.

he laid me 400 quid at 7-2 a romford BEGS dog, which won. asked me to come back in half hour, at 730pm. i go back and, after he has paid me out, he shouts to the shop (which had 6 network rail blokes playing the roulette machine and 3 other blokes standing together) 'all of u lot out - im shutting up shop, as this bloke has just won all the money from the night safe and i aint got no more cash to pay anybody else out!'

it was a very rapid walk to the wolsey wagon, i can tell ya!

romford exile - no, im up in colchester. it was bizarre as i had a lump to get on this dog and all the shops in colchester wont play at all (the lads just outside the town run by a particularly charmless jock bint, has to be tried, just to see her total lack of customer service. what a totally miserable wh0re).
so, on the complete offchance, i tried the nearest place, which was witham and there was an oasis of betting shops!

i couldnt believe getting 400 on in baldbets - but he did ring to get it confirmed(he also mentioned that i was '** barred') as i drew.
the joes i got 300 on.
the indy said '50 is the max stake on any dog race'.
and lads i got 400 in 1 shop, then the other laid me the same, 4 seperate 100 quid bets, despite the other shop ringing ahead (but i put 40 quid on for the manager).

the dog opened 3 and ret 7-2 - so it never got blown back either!

i only get 4 or 5 dogs like that a yr (2460 in an A8!) so when i do play, i have a proper go.

Very nice gamble sir,plenty of shops in Witham until your known.

joes and main laddies still take £100 bets from us,but baldies and indy (even with back show) are a waste of time.

I don't know how well you know the area,but Braintree have 4 main bookies all within 3 minutes walk in the town square / center that will take a decent bet.

Basildon and all surrounding areas been seriously smashed to pieces over the last few years at crayford, Jocorals in the indoor shopping centre got took for £100,000 plus by one man over a 12 month period, and same man done Pitsea big time, think he is well known in most areas top class judge and not an arber

ok smart man.

I move about a lot 2 but i'd never publish my list of current "good" shops on here.

varies from city to city. generally if one shop is good the rest will be and vice versa.

I understand what your saying mate.

Ive stopped wearing my romford-exile t-shirt and baseball cap so I should be ok. :-)

Very hard to find a shop that will allow any bets over a ton and even harder to get on at Crayford.Hence this thread.
