“Isn’t it taking candy from a baby?”

Reporting from Bet Chat HQ, north London…

How’s your week been so far? 

More enjoyable than trying to get in touch with a human being at Amazon to explain that it wasn’t you that paid £13.99 for Zack Snyder’s four hour long edit of Justice League, but rather a five year old child?

I do hope so.

As I said to Bet Chat Bec, it was like the complete reversal of that famous saying ‘taking money from a baby’…

Of course, she then pointed out to me that babies don’t typically carry wallets around with them and the actual saying involved ‘candy’, thus ruining my clever take on the situation, which was the only vaguely enjoyable part of the evening.

Still, at least the culprit was apologetic about it.

The fantasy football results are in…

Did you see my message yesterday about the Bet Chat Fantasy Football League?

If not, you might want to take a look as there’s a good chance you’ve won a prize!

You can see the full list of winners here.

You asked… now we’re about to deliver

Before I leave you today, I thought I’d share a couple of findings from the recent annual Bet Chat survey. We discovered that…

1. 93.5% of you enjoy betting on horseracing


2. 46.2% of you were only willing/able to sign up to betting services costing less than £20 per month

Well, guess what?

This Friday we’ll be launching Bet Chat’s first ever year round racing service AND it’ll be our cheapest ever year round service at less than 20 quid a month!

I’ll be back in your inbox with more info tomorrow, so do keep an eye out for that and of course Friday’s launch email.

“Guess how badly I did”

Reporting from a hipster coffee shop, north London…

Sunday saw the Premier League season come to a conclusion and the nation rejoiced as Liverpool not only made the top four, but squeezed past Chelsea into third place. Huzzah!

Okay okay, maybe you weren’t quite as rejoiceful as me (Bet Chat Bec had the temerity to go to the bloody Arsenal match!) but perhaps this email WILL give you reason to rejoice, as the results are in for the Bet Chat Fantasy Football League where there are… wait for it… 49 different winners!

The big winners

Our overall champion, romping away by 78 points, was Jack Palmer’s Rum Ham United. Very well done Jack! Your prizes are as follows…

£300 Bet Chat credit to spend towards a service or product of your choice, a football shirt of your choice, a £50 Amazon gift card AND a copy of Prem Bets 21/22 (when released of course)

Runner up was Alex Traynor’s 1892. Congrats Alex. Your prizes are…

£100 Bet Chat credit to spend towards a service or product of your choice, a football shirt of your choice and a copy of Prem Bets 21/22

Lastly, the bronze medal went to Marco Allen’s Kloppy’s Blinders. Well done Marco. You win…

£50 Bet Chat credit to spend towards a service or product of your choice and a copy of Prem Bets 21/22

The May winners

There are also two monthly prizes for May to give away, so well done to Kevin Haselden’s Red Marauders who won the month and John Pickersgill’s Come Dyche With Me who finished second.

The ‘better than Josh’ winners

Finally, I promised £15 of Bet Chat credit to anybody who finished ahead of my team this season, and that turned out to be a huge 49 of you. Turns out that I needed to do more than spend a half cut five minutes on my team each Friday night to be competitive.

Still, well done all of the below!

How to claim your prizes

To claim your prize(s) please email clients@thebetchat.com. Jack and Alex, please include the football shirt you would like (plus the size) and your postal address.

If you’ve won Bet Chat credit, please note that this is credit, not cash (just as well given my performance!) You can use it towards any of our Bet Chat products or services, so just let us know how you’d like to redeem it and we can sort that for you manually.

Thanks once again for taking part. We’ll look to run a league again next season and this time I’ll endeavour to be less terrible.

“Send help”

Reporting from Bet Chat HQ, north London…

I’m not going to lie, some of the mornings over the past week and a bit have been tough…

While beer gardens are undeniably lovely things, it turns out that hangovers from all day drinking have gotten worse rather than better over the last year or so. Somebody really should do something about that.

But still, with the weather this nice the pleasure outweighs the pain, and Bet Chat Bec and I will shortly be heading off to a charming little bar overlooking a London canal.

(Big up the Narrow Boat)

Before we depart, I just wanted to send you March’s Bet Chat Fantasy Football League winners which, at 20 days late, may well be setting a new record.

The lucky pair are…

Mark Szalma whose Tony Martian FC won the month and…

David Hughes whose Daves Cheap Shots finished second.

Congrats Mark and Dave! Send an email to clients@thebetchat.com to claim your prizes.

Anyhow, we best be getting on. Why not join us in spirit by lending a helping hand to your local? The hangover will be worth it, promise!

“Days do go quickly when you get up at 11am”

Reporting from Bet Chat HQ, north London…

First up this Friday I have a couple of competition winners to announce from the Bet Chat Fantasy Football League. These are just the 12 days late, which is somewhere in the mid-range when it comes to how late I typically announce competition winners.

Anyhow, without further delay, well done to…

Alex Traynor’s 1892 who won February’s first prize with a whopping 423 points…

And Marco Allen’s Kloppy’s Blinders who finished second and put his son to shame with 417 points.

To claim your prize, just email clients@thebetchat.com.

Just four more sleeps

If you have any interest in horse racing at all, you’ll know that the best meeting of the year – the Cheltenham Festival – starts on Tuesday…

And so too does my Cheltenham Syndicate service.

This has been going for six or seven years now but for 2021 there’s a major twist…

It’s completely free!

So, I’m not going to be giving you the big sales pitch today. I’m simply going to say that if you want a big price multiple bet…

Daily tips and analysis…

Access to a private chat group…

And regular competitions…

Then all you need to do is follow this link and confirm your email address.

That’s all for today – the off license is calling! Have a lovely evening.

“Did you book a birthday place?”

Reporting from Bet Chat HQ, north London…

An Italian restaurant…

A table for 20…

Outdoor seating, next to the harbour, in 30 degree heat…

No, not a mad, alcohol induced, fever dream but the reality of Bet Chat Bec’s Gold Coast birthday plans this month.

I’ll sure you’ll all join me in wishing her a lovely day. Hmph.

Is your name Richard, Glenn or David?

If so, then you may not have access to the Aussie sun/freedoms, but you may have won a prize courtesy of the Bet Chat Fantasy Football League…

Richard Riley’s ‘A Step Too VAR’ scored the most points in January, while Glenn Herriott’s ‘The wizard of oz il’ and David Fugill’s ‘LitOrange’ finished joint third.

Email clients@thebetchat.com to claim your booty.

There’s no such thing as a stupid question

So get them in!

We’ve secured access to a bonafide cryptocurrency expert and later this week he’ll be answering your questions.

This is a fascinating investment area that has now been going for long enough to suggest it’s no flash in the pan. I certainly have plenty of questions for him, and it would be great to get as many as possible in from you too.

Feel free to ask anything and everything by emailing clients@thebetchat.com.

“It was an ordeal”

Reporting from Bet Chat HQ, north London…

Last night, Bet Chat Bec spent three hours building a set of drawers. It’s fair to say that they weren’t the best three hours of her life…

At this point I want to make it clear that the three hour ordeal was no fault of her own, but the fault of shoddy instructions and, on a Friday afternoon, that’s more than good enough a tale for me to turn into a vaguely betting related email.

Was it your fault?

When following a tipster or betting strategy it can be pretty easy to point the figure when things go wrong, but before walking off in a huff ask yourself: whose fault is it really?

A surprisingly large amount of the time the issues are caused by something entirely avoidable – not reading the instructions properly.

Did you fail to put the recommended betting bank in place?

Did you fail to follow the recommended stakes?

Did you fail to take best prices to such an extent that you were leaving big chunks of profit behind?

Did you simply read a tip/system step wrong and bet on the wrong things?

Did you not read the instructions at all and try to wing it?

Before having a go at the tipster/system creator and/or giving up on the strategy, make sure that the answer to those questions isn’t yes…

User guides and the like are there for a reason so, if you want to get the best from any service, read ‘em!

Was it their fault?

Of course, as with Bet Chat Bec, it may actually be that it was the tipster/system creator’s fault…

Are the instructions confusing or contradictory?

Is the tipster failing to stick to their own strategy?

Do the selections not make logical sense/is the tipster unable to justify them?

Do you suspect the past results (or display product when it comes to our DIY metaphor) were artificially and unrealistically tarted up?

If the answer to any of those questions is yes, and if the tipster/system creator can’t give you a good answer to your questions (and do always ask if you’re unsure – they can’t help you if you don’t ask), then yes, I imagine it is their fault and you should probably move on.

A live example

We’ll finish today with a live example…

Bet Chat Fantasy Football winners not contacting me to claim their prizes!

For the following duo, this is your last chance to collect your November rewards:

Jack Palmer

Jon Wilson

If one of those people is you, just email clients@thebetchat.com to cash in.

As for everyone else, have a marvellous, hopefully flat-pack free, weekend!
