Starting balance of £500 | Follow My Progress! (2 Weeks In)

Hey everyone!

I’ve been finding it super encouraging seeing everyone else post their journey’s and result so thought I would add to this with my own journey so feel free to keep checking back for updates!

As of today I finished the 2 week trial and have just signed up for the Starter Package. Starting balance was £500 and profit from the two weeks has been £163.78 from 523 bets in total!

The 24 bets on there is from today since signed up with the Starter.


My settings are currently the default given on sign up. I usually have the Time To Start set to 24hours, may set to 6 or 12 on weekends to get bets done and finished quickly.

Bookies situation is: Bet365, SkyBet, BetVictor, Coral, Betfred, Unibet, BWin, Ladbrokes, Paddy Power

Bookies situation is: Bet365, SkyBet, BetVictor, Coral, Betfred, Unibet, BWin, Ladbrokes, Paddy Power. Im stake limited on Ladbrokes, Coral (was gubbed from promos when I started), Paddy Power, Unibet and I got banned from Boylesport after making just £9.

Did try using Leovegas but the odds were wrong constantly.

Now have access to a second lot of accounts through parents so going to try and hammer on both. Will use a mobile for the second ones using only 4G.

Other things that may be helpful: I try to bet on things that are closest to the match time as priority, I have also taken off the “50% first month” offer sub fee from my current balance to keep everything together so not to be putting extra money in. It would be great if this could happen automatically as a feature request maybe?

If anyone has any tips on making my settings better I’d def be interested to hear more but very happy with results so far :grinning:

I’ll update again around 1000 bets and happy to answer any questions although I understand I’m still VERY early in the game. Looking forward to a huge down-swing to knock my confidence soon :rofl:

Also quick question….

How many bets are people having open at a time on each website? With bet365 I’ve had 15 at most but can I push this more safely? I can’t tell if I’m holding back or not

Your settings are great. Note that if you have longer TTS then you should go for higher value.
I could have 100+ bets in play with B365 but more common for me would be around 80-90ish…
I think most bettors, including me, turn of Adjust For Open Bets (AFOB).
Be ready for the downswing since you currently, statistically, are way above the expected yield.
All-in-all a great start!

Really appreciate the feedback!

With the Adjust For Open Bets turned off, is there anything I need to be aware of? Does it increase risk in any way with me having a lower balance? With current profit I’m at £720 current

It does increase risk AND it increases the chances for profit.
If you have time on your hand and want to have the Kelly working properly and want to reduce the variance then turn off AFOB, increase max stake to at least 2.5% and reduce fractional Kelly to 25. During a normal weekend it will take about 100 bets to get the whole bankroll into play.
Please note that I am a bettor, just like most of us here in the community and this is based on my experience after more than 30k in profit.

1000 BET UPDATE

So it’s now been 1000 bets, just under 3 weeks and things have been booming!

First important thing to report is that we’ve added more money to the starting balance. My partner has decided to get involved with me and put in another £500 and we have her set-up using one of my parents accounts (full bank account) and using an old phone with a fresh sim. We are paying £10 on pay-as-you-go for 10GB data for the month so hopefully that will do it!

Before she got involved, which was 3 days ago, my profit from my £500 was at £337.46. Now with her input and 3 days later we are now at £698 profit which is insane! (£634 after expenses)

We decided to keep all settings as they were before following the “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” motto

Account situation is currently:

Mine: Bet365, Skybet (Limited), Unibet (Limited), Paddy (Limited), Bwin, 888sport, Ladbrokes (Limited), Coral (Limited), Betfred, Betvictor

Hers: Bet365, Williamhill, Skybet, 888sport, Boylesport

We are going to sort a few more in the next few days as well.


With it going so well still I’m def expecting the dreaded downswing anytime now! Maybe this weekend will be the one to crush my dreams :rofl:

May do a report after the weekend and see if our luck is still going!

Have a few quick questions:

1: At what point do people tend to not increase their max stake anymore? If people have thousands in the bank are they putting on bets for hundreds at a time and getting away with it? I know we are no where near that yet but just wondered if there was a recommended limit

2: If the dreaded downswing does show up sometime, do you just keep the same settings and just adjust current balance each day depending on how much is lost? Just wanna be prepped haha

2000 Bet Update

Accounts:

Mine: Bet365, Skybet (Limited), Unibet (Limited), Paddy (Limited), Bwin (Limited), 888sport, Ladbrokes (Limited), Coral (Limited), Betfred, Betvictor, Parimatch, Bet UK, Casumo (Limited)

Hers: Bet365, Williamhill, Skybet, 888sport, Boylesport (Limited), Ladbrokes (Limited), Coral (Limited)

It’s now been 2000 bets and a total of 1 month and 3 days so very happy with the result so far! Had the first taste of a downswing which took us from 1100 down into the 400s for a while, but luckily it’s back up and now we are just above 1100 ready for this weekend.

Settings are all the same except I’ve now turned off Adjust For Open Bets to allow for more higher bets now our bankroll is bigger.

I’ve also set up 2 filters. First one is for any accounts that are still fully running and the second is for any accounts that are limited. On this one I have it set to 300hrs and to hide low tier games to make sure the ones that do show are most likely to decent stakes. Seems to be working well so far. The fully running accounts are usually set to 12 hours.

Here’s the rest of the stats for anyone who’s interested…
