    Man Betfair must think I'm a G they keep offering me 25 spins at £20 minimum for a £50 bonus. I think not.

    Ladbrokes are currently running an offer on "Luton to win and 3 or more goals during a match", out of interest what would I lay against? I've looked on Smarkets, would it be "Winner and both teams to score", it's a bit confusing as it's like you need to bet on two things, a win and a number of goals??

    I'm also not sure if it means Luton get 3 goals, or there are 3 goals in total from either team?

    I'm not actually going to do this, just wondered...

    Hooray! Looks like another 4mm payout for me. Annoyed at myself for only just starting to do this now the season is all but over!

    Me too - and a nice £15 bonus from PP for 2Up (thank you Leicester for getting a goal back)

    That's a tricky one like you said as there is not ONE MARKET thst covers both outcomes

    Luton to win
    Total goals over 2.5

    I'm not sure how you do it maybe you add the odds up of those two makers to get your lay odds total

    Hmm, maybe I'll not think about this until I actually want to do this sort of thing.

    Last night I was checking my match results and this phrase popped in to my head "Matched Betting... being happy when your back bet loses" !

    I've been reading about Dutching today, this looks like it could be a good way of placing 'mug' bets but with the bonus of coming out with a profit. There's a calculator for this on PA and it gives you the option of staking round figures.

    So, I've got this
    Hi Janet, we've just credited your account with 10 Free Spins to enjoy on Frankie Dettori's Magic 7 slot! Open Frankie Dettori's and click the free spin button and gallop to riches! Good luck, the Team @Coral Casino. Free spins will expire within 48 hours if not used
    I accepted it, did the 10 free spins and seem to have won £8. I am shocked as I am never lucky!

    Ok, just done that and seem to have won £7.60! I can't work out why they would make any money from it as they were free spins. Are you supposed to start playing for money? This is what worries me, as it shows your full balance so how do you limit what you spend to a small amount?

    If there are no wagering requirements on your win from the free spins then can you not just withdraw?

    I think so, what I really meant was in the future wouldn't bookies get a bit hacked off if you are always doing free spins and not paying for it?

    Nah, a lot of slot offers generally want you to wager £5/£10 before you get your free spins...

    So you can specify how much you are wagering at the start?
    That sounds better.

    They would say at the start of the offer that you need to wager through £5 to get your 10 free spins

    That's WAGER THOUGH not SPEND £5
