Profit on first bet

September 5th, 2009 by enda Leave a reply »

I placed my first €1 accumulator bet on PaddyPower earlier and I’ve been successful.

I profited €3.95 on this bet but layed Ireland at 1.99 for €1 to loose 99 cents but insure that I broke even no matter what.

In hindsight, I probably should have guaranteed profit with the lay, but I was away from the computer during the Ireland game so had to lay out at high odds and I was reluctant to eat into my accumulator winnings as I was pretty confident on this one.

Sean has profited big today according to the comments on his most recent post. He reckons he’s sown it up for this month already and if he has then fair play. I’ve already decided I’ll never back to try and outdo Sean. Without devaluing our monthly competition, I know if I bet like this I’ll definitely loose.

Hopefully another month of slow and steady bets can see me turn a profit this month again. I placed some great bets in August without ever putting my bankroll in any great risk and I’ll be happy if I can do the same again this month. I won’t be getting carried away just yet though as we all know it’s very hard to beat the bookie. If either of us can turn a profit for 6 months or more then I might believe we can win at online gambling in the long term.

Thanks everyone for the votes last month! I might not have won it but at least I felt like the people’s champ :)

    Cheers for the comment Barry. It’s easier said than done. I won’t have as much time as I did last month and I’ll be happy just to secure a profit 2 months in a row. Bookie shops don’t stay open for nothing :) Although with the opportunity to lay on Betfair maybe I should be looking to become the bookie, although that can’t be taken lightly either :) €2.96 profit every day would do me though!

    Good luck anyway!
