Betfair / Geeks Toy & VPN - markets don't load anymore

October 22, 2017
Hello!

I'm from Slovenia and since November 2016 Betfair is blocked in our country (or better say not accessible):


Despite the blockage I was able to normally access Betfair website and also trade with Geeks Toy with the help of VPN (TunnelBear). A few days ago something had changed, because now I’m still able to login to Betfair website (or Geeks Toy), but markets won’t load and I don’t see any odds?

Betfair website before login:


Betfair website after login:


Geeks Toy:


Does anybody have any idea how should I bypass that and what are my options to continue trading with Geeks Toy? :eek: Attached Thumbnails        

Help calculating [Lay Amount] for bookmaker $0 and Exchange profit

October 19, 2017
I am creating a simple betting calculator in excel.
so $50 @ odds of 5 gives a lay of 58.82352941 [Lay amount =Backbet * ( (Back odds-1) * (1-back commission) + 1 ) / (lay odds-lay commission) ]

And so if I bet on exchange and a bookmaker I'd need to bet $5.88....

My question is how do I calculate my bet so that the bookmaker equals zero and then it calculates that new profit. And vice versa, exchange to bookmaker. How do I calculate the lay amount so that the profit of bookmaker/exchange equals zero rather than just doing standard matched bet.

Similar to.... [image]

Bet365-NBA stream

October 18, 2017
Hi guys

I think it's time to talk in title again.

Season start today but nothing change.

Last year Bet365 stream is faster than betfair but it was still late 7-8 seconds than real time.

This season betfair and b365 streams are equal than each other and both of them are behind 7-8 seconds from real time.

First two game shows us there is no chance to trade in these conditions.

Does anyone know where people watch NBA streams?

Many people trade like an old times without delay or just 2 seconds than real time

How to calculate total spent and payout and estimating if exchange wins -Excelformula

October 18, 2017
How to calculate total spent and payout and estimating if exchange wins correctly using excel.
500 at 7 odds gives me $3500 [Bookmaker]
Lay at 933.33 at 3.8 gives me $3546.6667 [Exchange]
With a liability of 2613

Total spent is 3113
So if bookmaker wins:
Total spent
3500 (payout) – 3113 (total spent)
= 387
If bookmaker wins

Exchange
Payout – total spent gives me
3546 - 3113
= 433 [Incorrect value].
How do I incorporate the 5% commission as this seems very incorrect.

[Exchange]
The payout is lay bet * lay odds
And the lay bet was calculiated by Lay amount = (Back stake*Back odds*back commission) / (Lay odds – Lay commission)

Any ideas why it’s doing this?

Help me solve, staking problem

Oback x Sback = Olay x Slay

Where:
Oback = Back Odd
Sback = Back Stake

Olay = Lay Odd
Slay = Lay Stake

This doesn't take into consideration the possible commission., but works for loosing trades. ;)

Example:
Back 10@2.00 and lay @1.40
Slay = 10*2/1.4 = 14.29

Betfair Video has no sound when played in AGT.

It's logical if you are using firefox to view the website, but the software is using IE11. You cant compare the two. Each browser has it's own flash installation.

Use the "open with internet explorer" menu from the windows 10 browser.

Can we tackle low liquidity with multi-market betting?

October 11, 2017
Is it possible to use GTA to places bets on any given exchange that we are registered to?

Just thinking that this would tackle low liquidity issues in "new" exchanges and allow premium charges to be bypassed...

Crash bug 1.4o

October 4, 2017
Hello everyone,

I have problem with my Geeks Toy. I have two different desktop computers:
Number 1
Intel Core i7 5820, Asus X99 MB, 64GB DDR4, NVMe SSD Samsung*960). I use Windows 10 Pro 64bit - version 1703, build 15063.608**(Creators*update)
On this PC Geeks Toy 1.4o works fine without any issues, not tested on markets with a lot of selections
Number 2
Intel Xeon 2630 v4, Asus Z10 PE D16 WS, 64GB DDR4 ECC RAM, SSD Samsung 850 Pro,*Windows 10 Pro 64bit - version 1703, build 15063.608**(Creators*update)

On PC Number 2 Geeks Toy 1.4o and 1.4l beta, tested escpecialy on football markets with a lot of selection where I manually choose selections Geek toy falls down aproximately once per day during whole day trading, with crash bug printscreened in the attachment of this post.

I think the Geeks toy falls down during right mouse click on Ladder view for manual selection filtering. In one case I saw only title of the Ladder (same as when you double click on the market for minize it), but in this case I could not open it and after few minutes aproximately 5 minutes (it is weird ursualy bugs are very fast or instant) I saw that all my opened grids and ladders are gradually closing and in the end closes main navigation window and then I saw Crash bug message box.

I used geek toy this way for aproximatelly last 2 years and first date when I saw Crash bug is 23.9.2017. If you want I could send you printscreen of my last installed windows updates?

I appreciate any help this error is very unconvient for me especially when I manually choose selections it takes me 3-4minutes per market of hard work with a lot of clicks. If I prepare 8 markets this way and then my Geek Toys falls down my f word counter didnt stops at number one. Attached Thumbnails
