Postby GaryRussell » Tue Jan 03, 2012 5:44 pm

Please be aware that there is essential planned site maintenance and upgrade work scheduled for Tuesday 10th January 2012 starting at 00:01 (GMT).

From this time all Betfair products, including our sports exchange, casino, arcade, poker, API, community and mobile products, will be unavailable. We anticipate that the core exchange will be back up and running by 10:00 (GMT) on Tuesday 10th January, with the rest of the products available later in the day (GMT). Please note the poker site will not be available from 21:01 (GMT) on Monday 9th January 2012, until the afternoon of Tuesday 10th January 2012.

The upgrade work is being undertaken to bring long-term benefits to our customers and we will be working hard to get normal service resumed on the site as quickly as possible. We’d like to apologise in advance for any inconvenience caused, and thank you for your understanding.

Updates during the outage will be available at If you have any questions then please email our Helpdesk at

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.
