EXCEL DEVEOPER REQUIRED 0- HAVE WORKING MODEL NEED SOME TWEA

Postby aussielong » Fri Mar 02, 2018 3:42 am

EXCEL DEVELOPER REQUIRED:
Each day I create list of selections for Australian, New Zealand and UK and South Africa horseracing.
NZ and Australia are done AM and UK and South Africa PM.
I am in Australia.
These are the broad parameters.
1. Bets come in via batches automatically
2. There are about 5 selections per race- all BACK bets
3. Win and place
4. Level stakes on each.
5. The bet is only attempted to be placed when the overall market is down to about 106%win and 330 % place ( can be varied)
6. Before the Betfair market gets down to 106% the asking price is 990-1 – which is rarely met –so the bet just sits there waiting to be taken or updated.
7. The asking price in the market is a varying % above what is available. That varying % depends on the asking BF price. So if the market price is 5.00 I might be looking for 6.2 and I’ll wait and see if its gets accepted. But if the price is $60 I want to be able to increase that by say 50% and would be looking for 90 before the bet is placed.
8. Those asking prices are updated on a periodical basis. That periodical basis is a countdown according to the time left before the race is scheduled to start.
9. After placing the best the BOT will settle on the next race in the exclusivity period – I use about 5 minutes. Prior to that it rotates in the market
10. If I don’t get matched I take SP.

Other:
1. Batches able to be cancelled via excel push button- don’t want to go into BF to cancel.
2. Want to be able to specify number of bet splits per race per selection. Thus 1 selection for say $10 bet may be broken down to 5 x $2 bet splits and introduced at different times to get best price average available. Thus the 5 selections per race may turn out to 25 individual bets.
3. I can tailor the excel csv or spreadsheet with the selections any way that is needed
Variables
1. Selections
2. Mkt %
3. Number of bet splits
4. Premium % over required over back price before bet is placed
5. Bet size
6. Time gap before bet is resubmitted
7. Exclusivity period
A big day would be about 500 selections and they would come in automatically over 3-4 batches and 1-2 hours apart.
The BOT replicates me sitting at the computer, entering selections race to race and trying to get the best price for a number of selections and then going race to race.
Thus I finalize my selections about 1 before the first race and the BOT takes care of the rest.

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.
