“Bookmakers swizzlemakers”

Reporting from Bet Chat HQ, south west London…

I’ve got to be honest, I was struggling for inspiration for this afternoon’s email but then lo, an editorial angel did appear, in the form of tipster royalty, Miles Tredwell.

He said:

“It’s taken about a decade and a half for the penny to drop on this one, but after today’s Neighbours there was an advert for a bingo happy hour promo thing.

“Everybody gets double tickets. Hooray, buy one get one free. Hooray again.

“Hang on a minute…if everyone gets double tickets then your chances of winning are exactly the same as if they had the normal number of tickets. In fact, if it was buy one get eight thousand free (for everyone) then you’d still be no more or less likely to win.

“Sounds good, but is a pure bit of empty manipulation.”

Sneaky no?!

So today I’m posing a simple question: 

We all know that bookies ban and restrict successful bettors, but what are the especially sneaky tricks you’ve spotted? 

Email them to clients@thebetchat.com. I’ll share the best of them and hopefully we can save some Bet Chattees a few quid!
