Hiatus is over, making money again!

So to kick off I’ve done the first freebet this evening and I’ve underlaid it, it’s for a match tomorrow and it’s also a “refund on lose” offer so I hope I’ve counted the right way! Any profits will not show up until next report but as I’ve mentioned this underlaying tactic before I may report on it as side post all on it’s own by way of explaining, to myself as well as any readers why I think, or not, that underlaying has it’s merits.

Happy Hogmanay, a Nice End to the Year

Yippee!! wasn’t going to do an End of Year report , but just a quick post as I not only reached my mini target of £1500 I smashed it :) – with £88 in 1 x week! ….. “if they won I got nearly twice the profit I would have done.. this technique is called “underlaying”. It paid off for me on both occasions, which is also lucky!”

Mini Challenge over, Target reached

In the end I did make the target and I calculated that I’ve turned over £1.8K in trades in 2+ weeks and made a profit of £7 on the trades + the £25 ‘prize’ for a total of a free £32, It probably could have been slightly more but I did make some other mistakes along the way – though making mistakes and still making a profit is fine by me.

Trading a lot, pennies make pounds

But there’s a gotcha, I don’t know If I’ll reach this target so I’m setting myself another goal and that is to not make a loss on the qualifying trades. It would normally be expected to make a few pennies loss on each qualifying trade, but worth it because the prize is greater than the loss, however in this case because I’m not sure I can turnover enough to reach the target, I’m making it harder for myself and using it to practice research skills.

Time flies when you’re enjoying yourself..

Had a bumper weekend last weekend (17th and 18th) ~ I hit a bit of luck on a freebie (no risk to me) slot game as well as managing to grab a rather profitable first time offer for text ‘betting’. .. unlike the usual adage of “if it’s too good to be true it usually is..” this one paid off :)

So sum total for last weekend was approx. £140! – Wish they could all be like that.

Small trading update and a Punt.

Again am at a bit of a standstill as my 12/1 horsey won, so float is again tied up at the Bookmakers – not that I’m going to try this but if you ever want a long shot winner I seem to be regularly ‘picking’ them (25% success rate so far). It never fails to amaze me that when I want them to lose, they come in – mr.t still laughs when i say “Oh No, my horse won!”

UEFA Qualifers take the trading total a bit higher

Then of course along comes EUFA Champions qualifiers last night, I’ve never done this while major footie was ongoing.. WOW much easier :) ….. Later yesterday evening all I had to do was check which side of the trades had won and update my spreadsheet accordingly +£19 thank you!
