Been trialling these price pumps and power plays then laying on Betfair the past day or so on English horses for a profit. From personal experience what’s the time it usually takes to get limited doing this?

Sportsbet cut me off from power plays after maybe 20 or so. Could have been a combination of things though because they also limited me to $2 stakes around the same time.

What’s the term for an arb opportunity e.g. over 5 rebounds and under 5.5, it lands exactly on 5, the overs book refunds and the unders wins? Is it still classified as a middle?

Just got myself a bowler account courtesy of Dad. Reckon I've got a good year of arbing and promo abusing while familiarizing myself more with the exchanges and building a big portfolio

yeah getting a family member to bowl with should go under the radar, hopefully he can handle a phone call from the risk department and not panic.

Might work out for a bit but someone like a siblings partner or something would be more effective if possible

So I boosted a $1.30 favourite on Doncaster race 1 to $1.50 on Ladbrokes, to lay for $1.33 yet on William Hill it price pumps to $1.34? That’s horrible

I've had my account closed with both Ladbrokes and WH, so I cant do it anymore, but the $21 horses at Ladbrokes usually boosted to $31.

The best mathematical value, however is always with boosting short priced favourites. Massive liquidity with English racing, so that is the way to go.

Yeah the amount traded is ridiculous. I put $400 at 1.50 to make about $48. Don’t want to bet ridiculous amounts as I still get nervous about stuffing up and what to do if the odds change quickly and what not. Once I get the grove I’ll go all out

Had New Orleans for the Superbowl at $51 earlier in the season.

Just layed them on betfair for $9.6

Futures markets are great. You can get huge odds on a variety of teams at different points of the year.

You just need a bit of patience to get your cash

And more importantly for the odds to go in your favour.

Panthers TD on any of the first 4 scoring drives and a good chance that 'arb' becomes a dead set loss.

Unibet also extremely fast to limit/gub accounts.

In my experience,

Ladbrokes/Unibet/Palmerbet and now Sportsbet/Crownbet (they used to be a lot better) are the quickest to ban.

Bluebet/Madbookie of the smaller books are pretty quick to promo ban.

Varying results with Neds, Ubet and WH.

The slowest to ban for me by far have been Tab/Tabtouch and bet365/Topbetta/Topsport of the corporate books.

Overall, all of the corporate books seem to be getting worse in regards to promos, smaller deposit offers/worse promotions whilst also being quicker to ban.


Unibet/Sportsbet/Ladbrokes/Palmerbet will also strip existing bonuses when banning.
So if you're going to whore from them, use the bonuses as soon as you get them.

I’m not a large arber and am happy to make my $200 or so a week as a uni student for a bit of extra cash. Should I take it slow to avoid getting banned or take them for as much as possible while I can?
