Why do you care if your shop pays out, Ronnie?

Wonder why i bother

Most the time you’re concerned about Corals paying out. You talk like it’s coming out of your pocket. Makes me wonder if you’re on some bonus related scheme. The shop wins you get a bonus. The shop loses you get Nowt. It’s the only logical explanation to me. Surly no staff would care unless it affects them financially?

There’s a new cashier in our local. She was telling me a few weeks ago how they ‘thankfully’ avoided a large winning bet on the virtual racing. His final leg in a Lucky 15 didn’t land. It cost them a few quid but thousands less than it could’ve been. Imo only the manager in the shop could’ve made her aware that they didn’t want the bet to land.

I’ve read enough of your posts, Ronnie regarding Corals. It’s crystal clear to me that the shop winning is your priority. That can only be for financial gain imo.

Hello. Arsenal get a late winner (sounds like it shouldn’t have stood) so Lochy comes on for some plaudits. Would’ve been another ‘holiday’ otherwise!

It’s a question I’ve asked a few times and you’ve always got defensive about it. You quite clearly want your paymasters beating your punters. No doubt handing out tea and biscuits with a smile while hoping they all lose.

What’s the ‘K’? I can grasp the rest of it.

Kenbo, have you never heard of loyalty to your employers, I know it's an alien concept to some people.

Clearly the shop needs to make a profit,otherwise it would close.

A profit share,would encourage more drive,but if telling staff they’re great works,then why would they offer this.

From his posts,I’ve always thought it was his own shop
By:
s.kenbo
When: 19 May 24 19:30
Yes, Nogoody. You hope the better they do then the better you do. As a shop worker in a bookies though you’re inevitably going to strike up friendships with customers. How do you want them to fare? Lose every bet? Break even over the year? Are you taking bets with jovial banter while wishing them ‘good luck’ but inside hoping they lose?
What about the people doing their bollox on the machines? Are you secretly rubbing your hands together while outwardly showing concern to other punters about his/her problems?
If I worked in a bookies I’d be happy with people winning. If it affected my pocket then not so much.

If it was his own shop, CUTH then I could totally understand it. It’s him versus them then.

I enjoy reading Ronnies posts on how his shop is doing, and I hope he continues to let us know on here. Good luck Ronnie.

Ronnie is a good poster, and has been for years.
Biggest c**t about shops is the sleeper rule. Been told from numerous shop gals they cannot tell customers about them.
What's that akin to in the real honest world?

I enjoy reading Ronnie’s posts on how the shops are doing. I’ve no doubt at all that he’s one of the good guys on here.

I just can’t fathom out why some shop staff begrudge paying out sometimes. It’s not coming out of their pocket and there’s nothing they can do to stop a winning bet happening.

The Brighton result was undoubtedly a good result anyway. Btts thwarted, overs thwarted. Throw in the Liverpool game and that will be plenty of accas down, even with all the high scoring games there were.

most of the bonus will come from the FOBTs, "want me to show you how these work?" "Fancy some free spins" "Can I get you a coffee?" etc.

OP has been a decent poster for years on here. Why care if he works for a bookmaker when we are on here using an exchange to bet?  Personally I couldn't care less about bookmakers profits as I don't need to use them at at all at neither should you.

In fairness for every **** of a betting shop manager I have met I have met 2 good ones, many have went out of there way to be as helpful as possible.

A little arrogant to suggest that everyone who doesn't use the same strategy as you is wrong?
By:
sparrow
When: 20 May 24 12:30
Not suggesting that at all if you can read properly but maybe as usual you just pick out the bit you don't like and ignore the main point with regard to Ronnie.

Sorry, I must have misunderstood 'I don't need to use them at at all at neither should you.'
By:

When: 20 May 24 13:41
Yes you misunderstood the point of the debate. If you don't like bookmakers then don't use them instead of moaning about them all the time.

Self employed my whole working life, Lochy. I’m not a forty year yes man to one firm!

Sparrow, if you’re happy betting win only or in the place market then the exchange can’t be beat. Most punters want a multi of some kind. That’s impossible to do on here so unfortunately bookies are needed by most of us. For a man who hasn’t bet with the bookies for thirty years you can’t keep away from a bookie thread without spouting the same lines every week.

Nearly all of us want bookie and exchange accounts. You are in a huge minority if you think otherwise.

Ronnie is one of the best chaps on here. He has always made it clear that he worked for Corals.

When I put a bet on here, I hope that I win and whoever layed my bet loses. All punters do.

For every winner, shops or online, there are going to be losers.

If I worked in a betting shop and was on bonus, I would hope that nobody won and wiped my bonus out and so would 99% of us.

Personally, I don`t get the personal attack on Ronnie. Good luck all.

So long as your happy betting with bookmakers then so be it, kenbo. My complaint is against those who come on here time after time moaning about them. Ronnie as has been said is a decent poster who knows the score.

I seem to have ruffled a few of your feathers. For the umpteenth time I’ve asked why he cares if the shop pays out. He has never answered this. If it’s because he’s loses out financially then I understand that. He won’t answer it though. Just tells me he doesn’t need money and also how much he has given to charity!

Any other shop manager care to say? Where’s Dealer, he’d answer without being offended.
