  1. If you think Bookmakers are bandits you should try dealing with funeral directors! f*** me. Take my advice people, make sure your kin are well insured. A morbid subject I know, they say you can't take it with you but somebody close sure can. The Vikings had the right idea.
  2. Newmarket 1.50 Blackheath. 7-1 This horse is ultra consistent, will act on the going, improving. Having its first run this season but that will not be a problem as it won first time out last year. When I back a horse I don't spend too much time worrying about the opposition, I just concentrate on knowing what my selection is capable of. I've had £140 win but at 7-1 is a great each way bet too.
  3. I remember a slot called photo finish where if you got the feature you had to press the button exactly when the two horses heads cross ad the line together. They also had a greyhound version as well.
  4. Mustang Gold is entertaining, has a bonus that also includes a Grand, Major, Minor and Mini jackpots.
  5. I just remembered an unusual one that happened about 12 years or so ago now, maybe longer, your memory lapses as you get older lol. I was sitting outside a small bar where I lived in a place called Santa Ponsa in Mallorca. The bar was called the Rising Sun. Anyway, I was having a coffee with Alan Hudson, ex Chelsea and England player, a bit of a lad in his time but a brilliant player and really nice guy. While we were chatting away, you couldn't make it up, the then Mallorca manager Hector Cuper came strolling by. I'm a very forward person so I called out to him and asked if we could take a photo. Myself, Alan and Hector Cuper, great fun, he chatted away no problem, I introduced him to Alan and he noticed Alan's European Cup winners medal I think it was, which he ALWAYS wore on a chain round his neck, it wasn't that big, like a medallion, nothing blingy. Anyway, may not sound like much I suppose but it's a fond memory for me, they were good times back then, before I lost my parents and younger sister. The good old days 😁
  6. What a rotten week, can't buy a win on anything and my team Real Mallorca are in a play off position but could only manage a draw away to Numancia thanks to an early own goal. I watched the game and they were all over Numancia and bossed the game and posession. Sigh.
  7. The coffin is being nailed, screwed, chained and padlocked.
  8. Cool, buying the eggs has saved your Bacon. 😎
  9. Had a £1 lucky 15 on the nags today. No strong selections really, just something to pass the time on TV. San Satiro 12-1 2.25 Wincanton. All Good Things 7-1 2.40 Stratford. Silent Steps 6-1 3.45 Stratford Misdflight 13-2 4.50 Stratford. All best odds at Betfred.
  10. Shame on you Gambling on a Sunday 😁
  11. That's what I like about forums, great little nuggets to be told. In the 80s I bought a racehorse, it was a yearling filly, I'll post the story later.
  12. Oh great news, that would be about the same odds as me getting 4 winners in a lucky 15 then, or shagging Sophie Ellis Bextor? 😁
  13. I have quite a few friends who play Bingo regularly, usually at the big name halls. I find it quite boring but you can get a drink there and food and slots of course. I suppose I've been about 50 times in my life, I'm 62 btw, spending about £20 on average on books. I've never ever won a bean, not one line. Any bingo stories?
  14. Working and living in Mallorca I met loads of famous people, they seem to let their guard down outside the UK. Sting, Joan Collins, Mike Oldfield, Agnetha from ABBA, Isabella Rosselini "the most beautiful woman I've ever met" Michael Owen, Bonnie Tyler, John Noakes, Jamie and Louise Redknap, "she was by far the nicest person, said help yourself to tea and biscuits or make yourself a sandwich, really pleasant" and quite a few more, but the most interesting person I ever met was Enoch Powell, while I was on the tube here in London. The nastiest was Sting, my mate told him to F*** off. I once sat down at a little cafe, Sylvesters, in a place called Portals Nous in Mallorca, it took moment or two to realise I was sat at the same table as Jimmy White. Another of my pals was outside his villa in Mallorca sweeping up leaves, a black limo with tinted windows pulled up, the driver lowered his window and asked my mate "in Spanish" if he knew where Samantha's restaurant was. Because my mate was fluent in Spanish "but with an English accent" he duly obliged the driver. As the limo pulled away the rear window came down and a man speaking English with a Spanish accent called out and waved saying, "thank you very much" it was Juan Carlos the King of Spain.
  15. Ha ha this is so funny and ironic. Watching someone who has a shed load of money playing the slots who's not inconvenienced if he wins or loses. I want to see him win because when he bets he bets with raw cash, but most importantly I just want to see proof that you can hit a whopper jackpot for a Pavarotti. It's like the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow
  16. When betting shops were made legal the government literally issued bookmakers a licence to print money. What the government should have adopted is a tote system where all bets for any event go into a pot and winnings shared evenly, with the equity going back in to government coffers therefore aiding the economy. I can't see betting shops lasting, I think in the not too distant future they'll be as rare as rocking horse doo dah. I have no sympathy whatsoever for them. My neice works for Ladbrokes, she often works alone, gets spat at, sworn at, has stools thrown at the glass partition and verbal abuse on a very regular basis. You may not have witnessed this behaviour in your local shop but she works until 10pm and in late evenings it seems every lowlife and scumbag gravitate to the bookies at night. Ladbrokes pay her under a tenner an hour. I have every casino app I need on my phone and can bet on any sporting event 24/7. I have live TV on my phone with every BT sports and sky sports channel, every horseracing channel including all the major bookie feeds. I'm sure this will be the norm as time goes on, especially as the younger generation reach the legal age. I expect in 20 years time, or even less, an 18 year old will laugh when you tell them you used to go to a shop to place bets or play slots. I still use the shops occasionally but much prefer to bet in the comfort of my own front room. When they come up with an app so I can play slots on my smart tv I'll be in heaven.
  17. 1.40 Newbury. Young Rascal. 5/2 Win Bet. 3.15 Newbury. Ibraz. 8/1 win bet. Win double on both.
  18. I found a pound coin in the street, walked in the bookies and hit a £500 jackpot with the £1 spin. Did a lucky 15 on the horses and had 4 winners. Went to the dog track backed 6 winners. Left there and went to the casino and won all night on roulette. Decided to go to a high class hooker, she was Indian. She said I didn't seem to be enjoying myself and I explained that I was put off by the red dot on her forehead. She said I could just rub it off if it bothered me, so I did and won £250.000.
  19. Dubai Warrior is a fair bet at 16-1 for the Derby. His Dam, Mahbooba is sired by Galiileo so stamina shouldn't be a problem. His only run so far was on the all weather at Chelmsford, he started slowly but finished strong to win going away by more than 4 lengths. He should have no problem acting on turf and if he wins impressively first time out this season his Derby odds will definitely shorten. My only worry is that his trainer probably has other future Derby candidates that have never seen a racecourse and the same applies to the likes of Roger Charlton, William Haggas and of course Aiden O'brien. Id rather wait a few weeks until after the Derby trials.
  20. Hi guys, what are your thoughts on the best on line presenter. I have to say that IMHO Brian Christopher is the best. He's very professional, an ex actor so good in front of a camera. I wouldn't be surprised if hes not snapped up by a TV network as a game show host or something along those lines.
  21. Nothing is a bad idea when it comes to sharing tips and information. My problem with sports betting are the cramped odds, extremely large stakes needed to win a decent pot. Also, as a working person, the biggest problem is the time I would need to invest. I read everything on here, you need to be a sponge and absorb as much Info as you can to get any sort of an edge.
  22. I watch Roshtein a lot on YouTube, 50euro spins and frequently you see 100 plus spins without a bonus on varying slots. Admittedly he's hitting wins on the base line spins. I'm not a fan, he loves himself and definitely loves the sound of his own voice, but as I have said before, you can learn a hell of a lot about dozens of different games and how NOT to play them.
  23. Hi all, any thoughts on varying the size of your bets whilst playing slots on line? It may be a coincidence but a few times now I've hit a bonus immediately after raising or lowering a bet. Also, I assume that on line slots have similar software to casino slots with a RNG, can anyone shed any light on the subject?
