I'm on his Lucky 15, 30p e/w, with a £1 fourfold, 2/3 with one non runner. Should be a tasty return if the 4th comes in.
thought I had 50p ew on the lucky 15, turns out I stuck it on as an acca :rolleyes: will teach me for doing it on the sly at work! Still if the 4th comes in return is around £200 so can't complain too much. Fingers crossed!

Did the EW Lucky 15 for the first time yesterday, three places returned a small profit, so i've reinvested it in todays.

Did his win double and the second one let me down for a couple of hundred quid.

I'll keep going for a while as they seem reasonable.

Accas have bought me my biggest wins, so saying they are an utter waste of time is really ridiculous!
Accumulative gambling, the football pools, the lottery! how many of you who call accumulators a waste of time or the bookies holiday money are doing the lottery?
3 scottish divisions that offer excellent acca material, and after the first few weeks of the season you have a really good idea of the outcome of most of the matches.
5 games per division 3 x 48 8 fold accas. 10x 9 fold accas. 3x 10 fold accas.
It works out £13.50 for 10p 8 folds and i have had 4 returns on those and all them returned over £1200, the best being £1670.
As it only costs another 90p (9x 10p) for the 9 folds and £1 (1x £1) for 10 fold. i throw them in as well.
I don't touch the Scottish Prem, spesh now Rangers are back in it!

Won £300 from Real beating Pool.

Put £400 on them to lift the trophy, winning £270. Then got a free £25 bet so put it on Real to win within 90 minutes as soon as Pool equalised.

Same day put £100 on an acca for 5 relative dead certs in the boxing winning £170. Lost £45 on Fulham beating Villa so was up £420 that day.

Went through my gambling history and up around £200 a year in the three years I have been gambling.

Found the whole thing quite interesting, working out what works and doesn’t. Working out how to gamble and not lose my enjoyment from the sport itself.

I’ve been putting 10-20 small bets (50p to £2) on the crazy odds request a bets with sky bet on the England games during the World Cup And this made Saturday even sweeter-of course I was still annoyed with myself for not putting more on it

My best win was about £1300 on the horses.

I immediately closed my Ladbrokes account. I will forever be £1000 up on Ladbrokes. whatever happens with other bookmakers. I'll of beaten one of them.

I don't tend to bet big money. I did put £250 on Thistlecrack in the World Hurdle a few years back.

I lost £100 on the Brexit referendum :(

I won about £300 on a midweek fixed odds coupon. It was some league cup games and I'd put in a couple of upsets. It was about a £2 stake and I dug into my pocket and pulled out £2 and put it on. I had about £20 in my pocket, always wished I'd dug a little deeper as I'd been off work following an operation and was skint. This was about 20 years ago when £300 would of been about a weeks wages for me.

I used to bet on a website called Blue Square which got swallowed up by one of the bigger companies. I checked my account one morning and had just 25p left in. They had an arcade game where a ball spun in like a roulette wheel and gradually made its way to the centre where the jackpot lay if it hit the right places. I put my money on that. Checked my account that night and I'd won the jackpot of 5000 to 1.....£1250
Never, ever come close to anything like again.

Best ever return was just over £400 from a 40p yankee. As an indication of how long ago this was, it cost me £4.84 to put the bet on and 'Maus' Roberts rode all three winning horses.

Walter Swinburn came in second on the 4th selection at 16/1, so far behind Frankie Dettori on the winner that Frankie had time to slow down and look back with disdain at the chasing pack.

£6500 trading the Spurs manager market on Betfair Exchange after Hoddle was sacked from an intial £100 investment.
Took up far too much of my life as it went on for so long and God knows the number of backs and lays I did. Thanks to COYS and Noddle I was able to switch all my greens to Santini with a saver on Jol at the death. That was a mad betting market.

First bet this season is to lay Spurs this morning in case we naffed up against WestHam @1.07 to finish top 4 Liabilty is £70 with a potential of £1000 profit. Since the defeat we've drifted to 1.21 so I could green up for a win but I'll run it in case Arse and Chelsea win tomorrow + we still have 2 games we can easily naff up given our curent form.

Yeah, same here. They were awful as well, not a single shot on target.
Yep they were woeful-Should’ve taken the cash out but by the time I accepted they weren’t going to turn it round it wasn’t worth it
