They really are evil parasitic scum whose continued existence shows how far we are from a rational and humane society.
It is a horrible industry, but the margin is as low as 2% on their books.

there is a lot of money going through bettors who are playing the markets rather than gambling. If you are arbing dutching or matching you can turn over your betting money several times in a day.

Fair enough, you obviously know what you are doing, and good luck to you. For every one punter such as yourself there must be thousands who are losing money they can ill afford.

I agree, one thing that really grates me is that bookies only make offers available to people who they think they can exploit. If they think you're getting one over them they will take the offers away tout de suite.

The analogy I use is it's like Tesco saying buy 2 get one free, and only letting some customers have them. I think they should have none or all offers.

No idea what the hell that means nor 1.7, 2.3, 3.3 stuff. I pick exclusively, not racing, fitba teams I fancy at a pricing format my auld brain understands.

Gambling in undoubtedly Big Business and parasitic, however pales into insignificance compared to the daily gambling taking place on the Worlds Stock markets.

@MeanwoodHibee , the first part of your handle ironically sounds like a racecourse venue that doesn't have many fkavourites on the winners list...:)

Apart from that, my old mum would have loved you. The amount of time she spent nagging my dad about his netting (losing) habit, it was like he had a whole flea circus in his ear.

He thought he had a tough time of it... till my mum got a parttime job as a settler in the local bookies. Then he knew what professional nagging was as my mum quoted chapter, verse and the shop's annual profits at him relentlessly.

To no effect at all!

Stockbroking is rich mans betting with more ridiculous and dangerous things to bet on. Or more worryingly for the rest of us, against.

They are a bunch of horrible bastards. I learned how to treat it as a job and make money. Done well for 10 years but ran out of aliases. Now I don't bother at all, if they refuse the good bets I'm not placing the bad ones. . I wasn't greedy but they don't want to lay horses that return half their out of line morning prices

Once I got shut down I used family and friends names. The shelf life of accounts got shorter as time went on, they really go out of their way to get rid of unprofitable customers. Degenerates and leisure gamblers welcome. Fuck off from our sports book but play blackjack or roulette til you lose your house. We really do care about your well-being.
