    Not sure I'm getting the hang of this. Spent 5 hours putting my first two bets on, the second one went horribly wrong but thanks to the lovely man on profit accumulater it should come out okay.
    Felt brave to open my account with betfred...now I can't find the teams I want to back bet with them.

    How do you navigate betfred?

    Also I'm worried as the first free bet I put on, something about there not being enough people betting..
    He advised me to put min. Availability of £30 in the filter on oddsmatching. Should I?
    Exhausted and stressed right now, it wasn't the effect I was going for!

    betfred can be a bit of a mare to navigate.

    What match / event are you trying to find and i'll help you

    Thanks Jon, I bet on a horse in 10 mins time instead as I could find that. Fingers crossed this ones gone right. I was so nervous to try MB...its going to be a good feeling when I crack it! For now I'm cracking open the wine to recover

    Once you get going with it you will be fine, It just has a bit of a learning curve when you first get going but it's absolutely one that you can crack!!

    Boudicca, I was like that to start with, didn't know one end of a bet from the other but it's become second nature. Just keep checking and asking questions until you feel confident.

    Smarkets was a right arse again today. Glad I have enough funds to top up Betfair to get what I needed done. I can't be getting along with the new Smarkets interface, it's not as easy to use as the old desktop one.

    Thanks stonecrows, I'll sign up for more tomorrow & get going again.
    I'm £4.51 up so that's a small win

    Well that was a good game! I have Lukaku for top goalscorer with Lads so a tenner free bet there, I was also on 4mm with Man U - though the free bet wont be much as I only bet £200 and I also waited to lay off my free Coral £10 bet from the risk free offer so made about £18 from that.
    No earth shattering wins but a few quid here and a few quid there :)

    Thanks for that @homie. I decided not to bother as I couldn't understand it. I have also backed Chelsea as my outright winner for the premier league. Oh dear!

    has anyone actually managed to get any free spins out of BetFairs 'Free kick challenge' in the arcade section? It's bought nothing but disappointment for me so far!

    hand holding please... I'm looking to place my second introductory free bet with Betfred (£30) using PA, but looking last night and today there aren't any bets to win so I shouldnt place a back bet at all... is that right?

    edit; also nothing over 88 rating either.. so leave it until the weekend?

    You don't have to bet on things to win, there are all sorts of bets you can have on each match (win / lose / draw / winners at half time / total goals etc.)

    Also is there not any horsey bets you can place on oddsmatcher?

    There's a 7.40 to win at Windsor back odds 5.00 lay at 5.20
    That should be ok shouldn't it?

    I seem to panic when I sit down to do this...think I must have been on page two before.

    Omg. Horses change very quick though don't they? Just refreshed the page and that ones gone.

    From reading into the small hours last night, am I better upgrading so I can see odds in real time?

    Thanks Jon

    Hey I would stick to football if possible the odds tend to fluctuate more on horses . So you will need be quick .
    I wouldn't wait around for the perfect match as well . Although you make more money .

    The time waiting around could be used to do more sign ups .

    each time I checked back and forth the odds had changed, I abandoned!
