    Are Sportsbet powerup prices based on anything other than the price of the selection? I don't know if it's some kind of cognitive bias on my part, but I feel like I get a bigger boost on selections I see as unders compared to selections I see as overs.

    Bugger. Their odds boosts were the best.

    Will continue to operate as two seperate brands, owned by the same parent company until at least 2020/21. Might not be a bad strategy when competing with Sportsbet and BetEasy.

    I would love to know exactly how this deal went down. The guy who started Ned’s used to make pornos and then became the boss of Ladbrokes in Australia. He then left Ladbrokes to start Ned’s and a year later has sold it to them and will go back to his old employer as a consultant. Has he made a profit? Or did Ladbrokes buy an over capitalised business and as part of the deal he asked for a job. He’s also pretty big on cryptocurrency, you wonder if he’s made some bad business decisions over the last 12 months.

    Just google Dean Shannon. Makes for some fairly interesting reading. One of those types that bad news seems to follow around for years now.

    Promo banned by Neds this morning even though I barely use them, and they don’t have stuff all promos anyway. I’m completely banned from Ladbrokes, so maybe this is somehow connected with the takeover?

    Side note, I haven’t had a winning bet with them since Cox Plate day, and really only a few $5 quaddies and such.

    Just got the email from Ubet stating they are changing their name to TAB. Doesnt say a merger just simply changing their name to TAB and renaming the app and website etc. I understand they are now owned by the one group but are they seriously going to have 2 bookies both being called TAB?

    Yeah me too. First promo ban ever for me. Went through betting history, many losing bets over the next month, most without the use of their promos. Weird

    Their toolbox. Mostly the odd boosts and the odd back up on obvious races with 2 short faves and the rest no chance. Would be running at a nice loss lately too

    Standard 20 to 50 dollar bets. Once rage bet an odds on shot boosted in the greys 4X the normal bet size. It won so maybe that triggered something

    Thanks guys, now understand why my Neds account was closed in full. Never had a problem with them and then out of the blue, account shut. Ladbrokes did the same thing to me about 5 years earlier. It is so average that they can let the worst clients bet whatever they like (and indeed encourage them to do so), but get rid of the winners!

    Which brings me to this, do the odds it is a blatant lie. At 1.87 which is what all of these would have been, more or less it wins $55,925 not to shabby but not half a mill. Also if I placed this bet it would have limited me to a $25 win, so I doubt that they would take on this liability for an event that is quite possible given a high scoring and fast paced game.

    Could have been boosted as I think SB do that. Also, a small difference in price on each makes a big difference on a multi.

    Would take like $2.39 per selection to get it yeah?

    Same game multis odds don’t multiply simply by the odds of each leg as a single as they are related to each other. If you play around with the right combos you can generally get an 8 leg all overs or all unders bet on player props at $2501 odds and hope for overtime or an early blowout.

    I thought sportsbet capped single bet wins at 500k? Only slightly over but still...

    And yes as noted above, same game multis rely on different formula as apposed to simply multiplying the odds
