    So how much will Smartbet cost Steve?

  • We have no idea yet. Have not even talked about it, but with any product that offers value there will be a cost.
    It will be free for at least 1 account, but if you use a heap of bookies there will be a cost to add each one. There are other ways to monetise it, so hopefully we can keep it cheap or free for users.

    Hey Steve, enjoying the blog mate, keep up the good work. Yes what an ironic joke TAB’s request is! Lets just hope the government have enough sense to see through all the smoke and mirror crap that has been put forward. I read on the blog here a little while ago a comment from one of your readers suggesting that if a block was put in place that pinnaclebet.com.au (Aus) would be classified as international. I rang them a couple weeks ago and spoke to someone who was assuring me that they were Australian licensed in Norfolk and therefor would not be affected in anyway. Was wondering if you had any info or insight on whether they would be potentially affected? thanks mate.

  • From what I have heard from others, pinnaclebet are being referred to as offshore as well. It will be interesting, as if the government says books must pay tax based on turnover, then the Pinnacle model does not work here. Now if they were to say it’s based on profit, then that’s a completely different story and I would see Pinnacle (not Pinnaclebet) coming into the market.
    The Pinnaclebet model is simply an affiliate one. They just get a cut of the turnover sent through them. It will be an interesting case.

    And here’s me thinking the ‘The Tarzan Method’ had something to do with your chest hair!

    I like the new format. I’m sure it’s a lot more efficient to make a video rather than a long post.

  • haha, people really love the chest hair. It’s like they have never seen a wog before :).
    At the moment it is, but I will want to make them better which will require more takes, editing, so on.For now they are working.

  • I think they will ban offshore. At the end of the day the government wants as much money from gambling going into their hands. They don’t get anything if people lose their money to offshore bookies.
    The most likely outcome of the IGA is a ban on offshore wagering and In-play betting allowed.
    It just means you and I will need to find ways to continue betting off shore or quit this hobby we love.
