I heard that gambling was legalized in Japan. Is it true? As far as I know, Japanese gambling machine pachinko has been allowed before.

Jockey claim

December 11, 2018
Just to be sure;

Age & Weight ______ Jockey Claim ______ Actual Weight Carried

6 / 12-3 _____ 7 _____ 11-10
7 / 11-7 _____ 0 _____ 11-7
6 / 11-8 _____ 0 _____ 11-8
9 / 10-11 _____ 3 _____ 10-8
12/ 11-12 _____ 5 _____ 11-7

Just wanted to clarify that the weight as shown in the Runner Info section in Geeks Toy
is the weight before the claim.
Good to take note of Apprentice with a 10 lb claim when trading in-play.

Enjoy !!!

Do you reckon Warren Buffett would be in the top 0.5% on Betfair?

December 10, 2018
I'm going with no. Warren Buffet is a value investor, and i think he would hate it.

Setting default stake type to liability

Legend, I was missing activating the staking menu within Show/Hide. Slowly getting there with getting everything setup, there's just a lot of settings to find.

Just can’t crack it.

December 6, 2018
Hi guys, I have recently got into trading. However my first few weeks were more gambling than trading and loss a few hundred quid after watching videos and reading people’s comments here and on other forums and thinking it must be easy.

I had downloaded geekstoy and another product which personally I found a bit more user friendly for me at the time. However I now find GT better for display and having lots of separate windows can see a lot more and record a lot more.

I have been trying to record a days trading whilst I’m at work as I love to try and make £80-£100 per week eventually but starting with a small bank.

As I say I have been trying and failing and I can’t seem to crack things.

I see graphs going up and down and think I understand, then try and fail.

Due to work I have little time during the day to trade, maybe only a couple of races lunchtime. Therefore I have been recording to try and find things that I can try and understand and automate.

Have any done what I have been doing (I’m sure I’m not the only person) and managed to finally understand and set something to trade sensibly and profitably whilst you are away from the computer?

Sorry for waffling and I’d appreciate any comments good or bad.

Chasing ze dream. My road to making money or dying out.

December 1, 2018
What happened? Where did Maocat go? Did they give up? Did the blow it all in play again? Its been a whole year since I last posted.

I graduated from university and managed to get a very good job. This left me with hardly any time. I would still look at betfair from time to time and look at the markets, their movements. I was however, no longer taking it seriously.

Then one day on a Saturday I had a strange idea. Whacked £20 into Betfair, and managed to do ok. On the back of that success I've been trading pretty well. Been gaining £1-4 a race. My bank has grown to over £400. I'm far more of a part time trader these days. I trade a few races Thursday and Friday night when I get home and a couple of hours at Saturday and Sunday the weekend.

I trade these days, in the words of Timothy Sykes, like a "Castrated choir boy". My risk taking is pretty minimal. By no longer needing money, because of my job, I stopped taking huge risks and blowing banks. My current goal is to win enough money to buy a car. I like Honda Accords, so will need about 1.5k-3k. I cant take the bus and trains anymore but I'm willing to wait until betfair pays for it :-)

How do I restore to default settings?

November 30, 2018
Good afternoon.

I wish to restore everything on Geek's Toy to the original default settings. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the application but all my previous settings remained active.

Please could somebody tell me how to restore everything back to original default settings? In very basic language if possible, please. :)

Thank you very much.

Arbitrage Tote betting

November 29, 2018
Anyone ever tried to do arbitrage with with the tote markets for racing? I noticed sometimes for American and Australian Horse racing tote prices can be higher than Exchange prices, but also the indicators for what the tote prices will end up are often not very accurate and change a lot.
Anyone think arbitrage with tote markets could work in general or tried before, any advice on how to get up to date information on amount of money bet on different runners on the tote pools?
