  1. “, and yet well over 90% of my bets had to be placed offshore as no Australian corporate bookmaker wants to take my action”
    Oh, the irony. For once you started losing and there was no Australian bookie around to take your money. That doesn’t seem like a great strategy on their side.

    “While the betting was a horror scene, everything else went pretty well for me in 2016”
    For me 2016 went pretty well betting-wise, while everything else was a horror scene. I honestly prefer it your way.

    That being said, given that social media already gives a distorted view about our friends’ lives, I highly doubt its reflection of punters’ profits to be more realistic. After all, as you said, they have subscription to sell on top of everything else.

    Everyone has losing runs, but honesty is a rare trait in the betting world. Congratulations on being transparent in good and bad days alike. I will continue to follow your activity with interest and strongly believe you will turn the trend around in 2017.

    We still going to be able to use Pinnacle you think Steve. Was about to start putting most of my action through them!!

  3. Steve says:

    I believe they will pull out of the Australian market as they did in the UK. It seems not many knew about the new laws coming. I’ll do an article showing how people might still be able to bet with Pinnacle.

  4. Steve says:

    So right, corporate bookies don’t let potentially losing punters stick around long enough. As most punters do, they could go on a winning run, they get banned, move elsewhere and lose it there.

    Social media is a mix of only showing the good side of ones life followed by being trolled for it from anonymous individuals. The opposite of friendships in the real world. It’s very strange.

    Thanks for the kind words.

    Is Sportmarket a solution? Very clealry states they don’t take UK or US customers… can only suspect that will be the same for Australia…

    I’ve talked to the owners of the company and they would not give an answer either way. I’ll explain all the options early next week.

    Steve, I know I have been put in the basket of trolls, but I have to say your honesty and apparent resilience in the face of these losses gets a massive thumbs up from me! I really do feel for you, and hope things turn around in 2017. It’s lonely, and truly miserable going through those valleys, but they must be travelled to get to the mountain peaks.

    No mate, I got my arse kicked last year too, in fact, similar to a previous article of yours it all went to shit for me after the Rugby World cup final too :)!!

  9. Steve says:

    Maybe we should meet up again to reverse the trend 🙂

  10. Jason Robinson says:

    That sounds like a great idea 🙂

  11. Patrick says:

    Any more on this Steve? 888poker pulled out of Australia last week with the impending legislation… is only a matter of time so would be good to be aware of the options & potentially ahead of the curve…

  12. Steve says:

    Yep, waiting on replied from a few companies, but will go ahead and post what I have tomorrow arvo.
