excel lay

Postby aengusz » Sat Feb 21, 2015 7:10 pm

hi,
i have an excel sheet set up to lay a horse at certain races. i take the lay price just before the off, however, if it is not matched before the off the bet is cancelled. my question is, what must i write in the trigger coloum in excel so that if my bet is not matched then it lays it at the SP.
Is it something like " LAY_TAKE SP" or "LAY_SP".
Thamks,
Aengus

Is it possible to stop a triggered bet (within a certain odds range) from being placed in play, I want the bet to be cancelled if not matched before the off.

Not too sure what you're trying to say or why the "within a certain odds range" surely your triggers are already setting any odds for bets and offsets.

If you don't want a bet to go inplay you can just omit to add any keep options to the the bet IP or SP etc so it just gets cancelled at the off, obviously there's always a chance you'd get matched in the BSP reconciliation process but nothing you can really do about that.

LAY-SP is the trigger needed if you want any unmatched lays to go in the BSP pool if they're not matched pre-off. Are you using the correct stakes? Remember all BSP lays must have a liability of at least £10

Captain Sensible - I refer to this comment you made about a year ago ............
Question(s)
Has the policy changed in the last 12 months ?
Being in Australia do I assume that "our" liablity would be $20 then ?

For AUS registered accounts the limits are $5 backing and $30 lay liability. For non australian registered accounts it was, or is, £2 backing and £10 lay liability or the equivalent ammount in the local currency.

Aus regstered accounts come under different governing bodies and they set their own limits.

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.
