  • Fantastic article. I’ve never had any issues with statements and such, but have (still have actually) bets that I believe are missing with, funnily enough, Crownbet.

    These are the only bets I cannot find in my spreadsheet and were placed with Betfair Multis which then moved to BetEzy and then Crownbet. Similarly to you, I was told the IT team were looking into it, then on a follow up email they managed to find some of the multis I placed but not all.

    As for Smartbet, sounds great. As you said, people are generally lazy so this would be a great tool to have to effectively track bets and also alert problem gamblers who may think they are winning.

    Nice post Steve. I think having to go get and then manually upload excel files is a bit of a showstopper for anything other than the hard core or enthusiasts. What about logging in and web scraping it on the punters behalf? (at least for any bets from the date the software is installed) Is that an option? Heck take this one step further is auto post an option? Place a bet and you have software that finds the best odds from your books and places it for you? Then you wouldn’t need the data ongoing it’d be captured by you first.

    I think this needs to be a mobile app (first, desktop second), but that’s when it’ll start costing you $.

    great stuff.

    a related grievance i have is pending bets. With alot of sites you cant find futures bets over 90 days old, or you have to search month by month or week by week.

    i tend to record my settled bets the following morning which often has me forgetting to make a note of the futures bets. sure im sure i had the cows to finish top 4 but stuffed if i can find the bet with any bookmakers. i wonder how many bets like this just disappear?

  • Hey Ben, the end goal is to have no user involvement. If that is a possibility remains to be seen.

    Hi Steve, sorry to dig up a old post but I have recently started reading through your content which i find enjoyable and useful to read! I do have one question, are you still working on this project, and is there a estimated finish date? Thanks!

  • Hi Jason, I planned to launch this year, but as with most things, life got in the way.
    Hopefully 2018 is the year this comes out.
