Single bet per race help please

Postby mdimmer » Thu Nov 02, 2017 7:49 pm

Hi,

I am new to this triggered betting game and am currently learning the ropes on Excel.

I am hoping to test a laying system, but I can't figure out how to stop any more bets being placed after the first one.

I have tried using the ISBLANK formula in the 'bet ref' column on Excel to create a trigger for this but it hasn't worked, and I'm wondering if there is a option in the Gruss software itself that would do this, i.e. to only allow one bet per race?

Any help would be gratefully received, even if it's to where I can find how to write the correct bit of code for the Excel formula.

Thanks everyone

Matt

place a COUNTA in the formula to count non empty cells in column T

So can this be used to partially alleviate the issues that arise from delayed races where bets have already been placed on one race and then the meeting is put back by 1 or more races. What then happens is that if you reload the quickpick list the races list gets updated and when the same race comes up again the bets get double placed.

The formulae in column Q says "=IF(AND(E$2="Not In Play",F$2<>"Suspended"),IF(AA5="BACK",IF(AND(Z5=A5,AG5="N",$AJ$5="Y"),AA5 & AA$2,""),IF(AND(Z5=A5,AF5="N",$AJ$5="Y"),AA5 & AA$2,"")),"")"

So is the best way to do this by adding 2 CountA's so it now says "=IF(AND(E$2="Not In Play",F$2<>"Suspended"),IF(AA5="BACK",IF(AND(Z5=A5,AG5="N",$AJ$5="Y", CountA(T5:t54)<1),AA5 & AA$2,""),IF(AND(Z5=A5,AF5="N",$AJ$5="Y", CountA(T5:t54)<1),AA5 & AA$2,"")),"")" ?

or can it be done with a single entry in the first bit of the formulae "Not in Play" etc with a single entry.?

Then. If a race is delayed and the sheet has already placed bets when the race is reloaded will it no longer place a double bet?

Thanks

Code: Select all
=IF(AND(E$2="Not In Play",F$2<>"Suspended", CountA(T5:t54)<1) , ..........


if another race has loaded in the qpl (ie next race in qpl) then it will place a second bet when the original race been reloaded
You can avoid it only if race remains opened in ba tab and excel sheet

If you're revisiting markets you might want to consider using the MyBets sheet as that's the only sure way you'll be able to check if bets have already been placed in the market.

Thanks. That might work. I will have a play with it when I get back from holiday in a couple of weeks time.

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.
