  1. I'm gonna miss that wheel 😭😭😭
  2. I would imagine it costs a lot of money to create the software for bonus buys, and it has to stop just like that??? I can still play Horus for £100 per spin, go figure.
  3. I don't like being told what I can and can't do with my own money, even if it is for my own good. 😁😁😁
  4. Aha, that's why I spelt living in capital letters, it's not the cost of living, more the cost of being alive, that particular day cost me around £300 for mostly essential bills, only 10% was on gambling 😁😁 Ironically, the only thing Extinction Rebellion do is block the traffic which causes more pollution. 😭
  5. Sadly I lost the video when I moved back from Spain. The race was in 1989, Racetech kindly sent me a video of the race and I should have transferred it to DVD. In those days I had the money, I couldn't afford a hair on its mane now. We paid 3600 gns for her and training fees were £200 per month. Myself and my friend Peter went 50/50. You have to buy the colours, 'silks' and pay to register them of course, then there's vets fees, travelling fees, entry fees for each race the horse is entered in. On occasions she may have been entered in three or four races in any one month and then not run in any of them. Blacksmiths have to be paid to fit the racing shoes and even the dentist is needed from time to time. Only 1 in every 1000 horses pay their way, its about the same as buying a bonus. 😁😁 I was lucky because my best friend Howard Jenkins was a jockey who worked at the stables, "his older brother John is still training to this day" he even married a "Miss World" Some people get all the luck. Anyway I spoke to Howard when we went for a beer one night and asked him to keep his eye on the horse and let me know if she was worth keep g, after all she was only a baby when we bought her and wouldn't be ready for raci g for another year. Thqts a lot of bills in the meantime. So he kept me updated on her progress and said she was good enough to have some fun with. "A trainer wouldn't normally tell you if your horse was useless, he wants you to keep pati g you monthly bill. You never know how good your horse is until it has raced, it could be a world beater on the gallops and never put a foot forward on a Racecourse. Many years ago an Arab consortium paid £6 million for an unraced yearling called Snaffi Dancer, turned it couldn't even pull a cart and never ever raced. We had a lot of fun with her and she stopped racing at 4 years old and we sold her to the stable girl who looked after her for a knock down price.
  6. Absolutely bang on there Barney, the cameradery of a bookies was second to none. If you dropped a tenner on the floor, you would probably get a tap on the shoulder and someone telling you "you just dropped a tenner there mate" It wouldn't happen nowadays.
  7. It's Arc de Triomphe day today in Paris and it will probably be the last time we ever get to see the world's greatest racehorse "Enable" as she will probably be retired after today whatever the result. She has won 13 times from 14 runs in her career, the only time she lost was after a 5 month break. She will be ridden by the world's greatest jockey Frankie Dettori. The other prestige race today is the sprint, the "Prix du Labbaye" The favourite for this is another English trained horse Battash who has won 3 of his 4 races this season. Its live on TV so I'll be having a bet, it's something to watch. 😁😁. The picture I've uploaded is a trophy my horse won after winning at Lingfield, there was an option of an extra £200 in prize money or the trophy of a whisky decanter and six glasses. I've had this since 1989 and it's never been out of the box. In fact the only people to see it apart from my family will be anyone looking at this picture.
  8. Spot the mistake? I've put it on as a lucky 15 like an idiot so esse tially now I have a lucky 31 for 48p stakes, twat.
  9. Maybe you can triple up on your next session 😁😁

All five win returns £12.850 at current odds above.
  11. I hate giving advice in case it goes tits up but best of luck. I'll, stick my neck ou and say Dragons fire megaways can pay very very well in the base game and another game that gives lots of different bonus features on a very regular basis is Stage 888. Good luck.
  12. I hate giving advice in case it goes tits up but best of luck.
  13. I won't give the game away here but I really enjoyed that game Darren. Not only that, she's got the best pair of tits of any animated character I've ever seen. Can you get me the name of the artist? I want to send him my blow up doll, "I call her Dolores" so he can do some artwork on her.
  14. I think it's her boyfriend who set it all up, he's always sitting in the background playing with his x box
  15. I shall be watching her tonight, I'm all prepared, cup of te, vape juice, box of tissues. 😍😍😍😍
  16. I owe them all money 😁😁😁
  17. I never noticed 😋😋😋😋
  18. Thanks for your concern guys, I'm fine thanks. As I'm semi retired a job comes in now and then and if I fancy it I'll take it. Consequently I have less time on my hands, that's why I had to stop putting up the horse selections as its very time consuming. I have been watching one streamer in particular lately, a Bulgarian chick called Desi, she's on a mission to get a wild line on DOA II, she's had 150 bonuses so far with no luck??? Right, off to Paddy Power. 😁😁😁 Later guys.
  19. Hi Cazza, no that wasn't the case here, she took the slip which I had written my name, username and password on, "this is the info she needs when she calls in the deposit to head office" and just rang it through the till as if it were a £100 bet, it seems she didn't even look at the slip, I passed her the betting slip with all the relevant details needed and I asked to please put this on my account. The more I think about it the more I believe she just didn't know how to do it, I wouldn't have a problem with that. What I do have a problem with is being spoken to and looked down at like scum.
  20. Just got back from Betfred in Sutton. I put my lucky 31 on and put the change in the FOBT. Played Horus for £2 a spin, got the bonus and a RETRIGGER on 2nd spin. I ended up having 12 spins on the "eye" and still only managed a £360 win. Still, not to be sniffed at. I collected and gave the cashier £100 along with a slip with my name, username and account number and said I'd like to pay this £100 into my account please. She rang up the slip through the machine and I thought this must be a new method. When the cash did not show on my account I showed the cashier and she cancelled the slip and returned my money saying that I can't do this in the shop. So I replied yes you can, to which she replied I'm too busy, so I said what about the cashier sitting next to you? and she then replied, she's new here. She looked at me as though I was a piece of shit on her shoe. I have an explosive temper so I just left the shop before I got myself in trouble.
