Web scrape/polling

Postby mo1969gruss » Sat Dec 28, 2019 1:10 pm

Hi guys,

I would like to pick up horse names by polling/scraping a pre-defined website every 'x' seconds, e.g. 60. This would trigger a bet @ SP to a pre-defined stake. Maximum 1 bet per unique horse.

Please let me know how this might be achieved, thank you. Mark

Hi Mark.

That should be easy to achieve by connecting Gruss to Excel. Let me know if you need more help.

Regards, Steve.

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.
