How are we all doing today? All good I trust. Following on from last week's blog which detailed some of the frustrations of starting with a small float, I'm afraid I've got more of the same to report today, and that's made it a frustrating week.
In fact I spend most of it awaiting payments to come back to me, massively hampering my gambling earning potential! It all adds up to a week where I've barely broken even, what with having to work through bonuses as well to unlock money.
My main issue is Bwin take 5 (count ‘em) days to send me money to Skrill – and charge me near on a tenner for the privilege. I have to gamble through my Unibet bonus to unlock funds- then cannot change withdrawal method from Bank to Skrill so have to wait for winnings to clear into bank. Finally I go a bit too hard at Seanie Mac trying to get £25 bonus from 5 bets in one day and get limited at bet 4 – furthermore taking the funds out of here will also be more waiting as again has to be a card transfer. I predict midweek next week to really start hitting things again, as this means I have missed all the Masters and CL offers this week! My betting this week is below – however it’s not pretty reading.
But lets not get massively down about this (spoiler alert) I do post a profit for the week, and with this many bets going on, that's pretty good.
I have a free bet from Victor Bet from last week, need to put this on an accumulator so back Norwich, West Ham and Tottenham. Norwich lose and Hughton get surprisingly sacked, my lay bet comes in for some small gain over the 2 weekend bet.
I do the cash Wizard casino free £10 offer at William Hill as I have no float to gamble with come out slightly up. I have final hockey match of the league season setting up 2 in thrilling 3-2 win.
I feel the full effects of Saturdays end of hockey season party – and don’t move from the sofa for around 4 hours. The football is good, but having no immediate float I make no money from it bar a small mug bet on Everton to beat Arsenal.
The failure of Bwin to return my money to me means I still have no real gambling options, work all day instead and watch Spurs win 5-1 in the evening.
Bwin finally give me my money back late afternoon I immediately reload Betfair and slightly underlay and back a horse at Unibet to get the money moving again. Lose £9 in commission from Bwin bank transfer.
I have a real afternoon binge at Unibet working through my bonus, ensuring to underlay, the first horse wins and I set myself up for a good day, however by the time my £200 odd locked bonus is gambled out, the losses have slightly outweighed the wins, as I constantly back runners up.
Day Loss £2
Seanie Mac’s 2nd free bet promotion is based on a free bet to average of 5 wagers I bet at £25 a pop, only get 4 on and it says the account has been limited. I’m working this through and seeing what happens. Weirdly the first horse comes in, followed by losses that leave me £3 up for the day. I also need to advise that Seanie Mac’s first £25 free is only paid on a losing bet, so this was another thing I missed out on as first bet here won
Day Profit £3
Week Profit Loss +£21.68
Ok so I’ve come out up but it’s been hard work, moving the float about for better results next week - have a good weekend!
