I'm a total novice at the high street betting malarky, I do specials betting for a bit of fun, just happen to have made a small profit over the years. Since the PC nows about to get even minnows like me, though i'd start to look around..
I've opened quite a few high st a/c's in last couple of months - opened sj a/c sunday morning to have some 3.25 on mince. they let me have 33. now tried to put 200 on at 2.75, and allowed 42. how are you supposed to get a bet on ?

I was only alllowed 42 too, but that is better than a lot of posters with them.

Others are better...for now.

They've restircted me to bets to win £20 (i.e. not £20 bets) so I've given up. Their prices are often good, but they'll nail you pretty quickly.

Spoils best to me Dicky. But will restrict sooner or later

Stan James are the worst.
I had one big win with them, Tina to be evicted on CBB, and now they offer me pennies.
As GB says, Spoils are very good, until they restrict you.
They'll let you have hundreds on these markets at decent prices.
Tote, baldie, bluesq, korals, WH, sky.have all let me have decent bets too.

Open an account with betquack too.
They do seem to be offering more of these markets now.

They still let me get 4 figures on gresty. £10.00 on a 1.2 shot :-)

Agree with GB regarding spoils, theyve let me have close to 4 figures total at various prices on mince

notbet365 are a complete joke also as my accounts still open but they'll not take a penny off me over the phone or on the net, although i still log into my account occasionally and try and place a bet on someone that has no chance just to move the price

Respect to you guys doing this for a living - having a large extended family enabling multiple betfair/high street accounts must be a bit of a necessity.

haha gresty241 thats all it takes mate, mess em about

done it with spoils before, ask for like 2k on someone to be evicted at a big price, suddenly it gets chopped..even though i got knocked back :)
Report gresty241 December 7, 2009 7:56 PM GMT
i always worry they may get me back by taking the bet one day :0
Report map December 7, 2009 7:58 PM GMT
haha gresty, as if

all i do is request say 2k on 11s for someone to be evicted, with no money in my account, get offered like 1 quid, click reject and watch them frantically move the prices lol
