It was back up and then went down again. It's not Betting Assistant, honest!

Betfair really need to get their act together quickly or people will start migrating over to Betdaq.

I want my Premium Charges back !!

"99% of customers still use the website."

99%+ of users are losers. Are these two facts somehow linked ????

I just nearly lost another 600 because of not knowing i had matched bets and couldn't log in to the web site so assumed that was down as well.
Its a disgrace that the web site was available to those already logged in and with the API down they should take the lot down till they fix their rat and bug infested piece of garbage. Rant over.

Sports betting software from Gruss Software


The strength of Gruss Software is that it’s been designed by one of you, a frustrated sports punter, and then developed by listening to dozens of like-minded enthusiasts.

Gruss is owned and run by brothers Gary and Mark Russell. Gary discovered Betfair in 2004 and soon realised that using bespoke software to place bets was much more efficient than merely placing them through the website.

Gary built his own software and then enhanced its features after trialling it through other Betfair users and reacting to their improvement ideas, something that still happens today.

He started making a small monthly charge so he could work on it full-time and then recruited Mark to help develop the products and Gruss Software was born.

We think it’s the best of its kind and so do a lot of our customers. But you can never stand still in this game and we’ll continue to improve the software if any more great ideas emerge.
