    A lot of Enhanced Football prices, quite a few arbs.

    I would'nt even waste my time checking out the boyles specials they never
    have a decent special.

    Last sunday they had a NFL special plastered all over the screens,4 teams to win 6/5.
    When I worked it out you got better odds taking the match prices.

    PP do seem to have the odd few decent ones tho.

    Some of Powers office specials are really good, arbs or huge +ive EV.

    Really annoys me that they're so pathetic online when they literally give cash away in the shops.

    when they literally give cash away in the shops.

    Which is very useful when you can't get a bet online.

    They were 4/1 today Chelsea, Liverpool & Everton.
    Best price elsewhere was 7/2 with Coral but that only lasted till 3pm when the news broke about Ba not playing.
    Everton went from 2.4 to 2.16 on Betfair, Coral slashed their treble price to 11/4 while PP were still 4's, treble worked out at 3.9 on Betfair.
    They also did 2 Money Back Losers horse races on Saturday which was for all areas.

    Lads are doing Money Back selected virtual races if the next roulette spin is red or black to a max refund of €20 :(
    2 point Virtual Boost if your horse wins at 12/1 or bigger (that rules out the top 6 in the betting!) and something else I can't remember so probably not that good.

    Okidoki where you in a boyles shop since the sale started did they offer anything that looked value?

  • Registered Users Posts: 10,620 ✭✭✭✭okidoki987

    Yep and Nope ;).
    Was in a shop for about 2 hours yesterday and walked out as they had done NOTHING at 3pm!
    I'm going to go on a travel tomorrow into all 3 of them and post up who's doing what.

    Sales aside Boyles textmania can be very decent, there frequent if your horse is 2nd at a named meeting have a same stake freebet in next race at that meeting is very good imo, had that 4 or 5 times since Christmas day, on the 27th it was simply back a loser and get a same stake free bet next race.

    No brainer based on what I saw today.
    PP by a mile, followed by Boyles with Lads a did not finish!

    Mate called Chris who never bets, called in while I was in the bookies and heard the announcer talking about the next virtual race where a horse called Chris, 80/1 outsider was running.
    "I'll have a bet on that" he said.
    After quickly explaining the ins and outs of how to bet, the Horse had the extra weight of a €5 e/w...........and of course it Won!
    If only it was that easy :rolleyes:.

  • Registered Users Posts: 10,620 ✭✭✭✭okidoki987

    BTW there's a massive difference between cash back and a Free bet.
    The Free Bet doesn't return the Stake :mad:.

  • Registered Users Posts: 71 ✭✭Zuko123

    Ladrokes are awful,why punters go into those shops ill never understand.
    Anyway tomorrow powers are giving money back all losers on 2 races up to 100 and a money back on the mu game.

  • Registered Users Posts: 10,620 ✭✭✭✭okidoki987

    Boyles have gone way down after today's efforts.
    Money Back 2nd to a Trap, 2 Greyhound meetings.
    SP Boost and Cash Back if 2nd were both selected VIRTUAL Races.
    There were NO Money Back All Loser races today and from what I found out, they will NOT do to them on a daily basis, only on occassions!

    The award for worst price ever in the history of SP Favs has to go to
    Boyles today for their SP Favs Price at Lingfield........2/1 :mad:

    Asked the guy behind the counter to get me a price for it not to happen
    but surprise surprise, the traders wouldn't quote.
    Ladbrokes were 4/1 the same bet, PP didn't do it.

    Money Back as a Free Bet selected races if the following Roulette Spin is Red or Black - Max Stake €20 - Race announced after the race has taken place.
    Money Back as a Free Bet if 2nd all races at Portman Park - Max Refund €20.

    200 max refund is decent, unlike sadcrooks hilarious 20€ freebies

  • Registered Users Posts: 10,620 ✭✭✭✭okidoki987
