    Hello All,

    in January 2007 I put £10 in my online betting account. By means of a series of bets I later withdrew well over £1000. In 2007 I repeated the same process and withdrew £1850. On both occasions I followed the same broad systemand I feel that I could repeat this time after time.
    I'm not saying it was easy, and my discipline went on a number of occasions however my process was logical and could easily be replicated by anyone with a small starting fund and every Sunday free.
    I'd now like to write up what I know but I don't know where to start. I was hoping that some of you guys could fire some questions at me to get my brain working.
    Basically, when someone pops up on this forum and says they have a new system, what questions do you guys like to know?

    Ross.

    = What does it involve? Betting on/with?
    = Investment needed?
    = What's the risk involved?
    = Is it newbie proof?

    Just a couple questions I thought of. Hope answering them won't reveal too much of your system.

    Just write the process step by step and make it so that anyone can follow it whether they are a novice or not.

    you could write it like a diary

    just try and remember what it was that you actually done.

    Then in your sales letter you could get the client to think ahead to a time in the future roughly the same period the diary is about and have them imagine making the money you made.

    hope that helps

    os....

    Any kind of refund guarantee? Is dutching involved? How much time involved for picking each race? Resonable money management scheme laid out for them? I wrote and sell a system online and have been doing it for 7 years and those are the most asked questions you'll get. If you address and answer those questions on a FAQ page you'll eliminate alot of emails.

    Betting systems CAN and DO work in the short runs... Even the Wizard admits that. The TRICK is to be able to EXPLOIT all your short runs so that you win more of them than lose and come out with a profit.

    Even the Wizard utilizes betting systems to play specific games... LOL.

    The trick for your eBook to be worthy of someone purchasing it -- someone familiar with gambling would be to write it for gamblers. You have to KNOW what we want out of such a document.

    Hi

    thanks to all who got back to me and the private messagas. The system is so simple on its own merits that it's hard to go into it in any details whatsoever without spilling the beans. As a former Bookie, Bingo Hall Manager and Casino Manager I've seen it all with systems. However this one doesn't involve arbing or dutching or anything like that. No Martingale or laying favourites etc. No stop at a winner.

    I like the idea of writing it as a diary.

    Is this a sports betting system? In my opinion those are the only ones that can work long term. And I'm not talking about systems involving making money by doubling down and whatnot like martindale.

    I mean methods that involve isolating certain proven scenarios in sports and betting them.

    Like Dr. Bob, that guy who was on ESPN's E:60 show. he got so good at handicapping games that the bookies actually went undercover and paid to join his site, and then adjusted their lines minutes after his picks would come out every week. All because he had found a system that worked.

    I'd be interested to know what type of system it is. You don't have to tell us the system in depth, just tell us what it involves. There's a guy I know of who runs a newsletter that is based completely on isolating underdogs and playing them at certain odds - especially against the moneyline. With dogs, you can have a losing record and still come out way on top because with the moneyline some dogs will pay out 5-to-1 or better. heck, I've hit on dogs in college football at +2450. South Florida @ West Virginia 2 years ago in NCAA foots. That +2450 means you win $2450 on a $100 bet. Or $245 on a $10 bet if you have a small roll to play with.

    That basically means you can lose your next 24 $100 or $10 bets and still be even when you hit one like that.

    Curious to hear if your system is sports based or just some type of complex betting pattern - those usually don't work long term.

    Hiya,

    the system is not dodgy in anyway. In my time I have been a Bookie, a Bingo Hall Manager and a Casino Manager and have came across every scam, fiddle and bent system in the book. As someone who is naturally interested in Gambling both as an individual and via professional curiousity I have spent a fortune on Mail order trash and its b*tard love child, the e-book.
    In general these systems fall into 3 main camps:

    1) Take a race give 3 points for a win, 2 points if it selected by Spotlight etc etc.
    2) Back the favourite if it loses double up on the next favourite (or some variation)
    3) Arbitrage/ Trading

    Now all 3 of the above encompass pretty much everything I've ever come across - and I've lost big on them all, and still do!

    Last year I put together everything I know about sports betting and mixed it in with knowledge I gained from reading a book on the stock market. Eh voila I've had a couple of good years from it.

    To answer the question of why I've not raised my initial stake from £10 to £1000 the answer is - "I might do so in the future". I didn't have the b*lls to do it this year! Don't listen to anyone who says otherwise - nothing, I repeat nothing is sure fire.

    I am a lazy so and so and like most people on the forum I want to earn enough to quit my day job. If I can do that by selling my system instead of doing it myself then all the better.

    In answer to the question of how long it took - in both 2007 and 2008 it took me about 2 months to go from £10 to £1000.

    I can't reveal the bets as they would plainly show my system - and I do eventually want to make some money out of all this! However I'm betting on high profile sporting events. This year my biggest money makers were the Premiership and the Premier League darts.
