Premier League in-play

19. August 2017 - 18:32
Anyone got any clues why none of the televised Premier League matches appear to be in-play on Geeks Toy? All the non-televised matches appear in the football matches ladder when choosing in-play or on now. But not the televised matches. Been the same for me for every game so far this season. Almost certainly something Betfair are doing.

Matchbook - New beta 1.4o released

19. August 2017 - 8:15
Thanks for the new release.

It's impossible to find how to move away silks from the grid interface
and also it would be very helpful to have "horse racing" not only in "all market" menu
but as in betfair version.

Posting Inplay Back Bets Using Stop Entry in Multi Tool Box.

17. August 2017 - 21:29
..... can anyone help please? I may be barking up the wrong tree here, but I have seen a system which uses a Stop Entry System for Back Bets. What is required say, is that I want to place back bets on the first three favourites whilst inplay and placing these bets when the odds price is hit. Say 1st fav 4.0, 3.0 and 2.2. 2nd fav 4.4 and 3.4 and 3rd fav 3.4. I have tried using the Multi Tool Box and the Stop Entry button but no success. Can any kind person advise please on whether this can be done using the above, and what the settings might be? Thanks.:)

Very interesting project, I did not think that to predict sports events, you can create a fully automated program that can predict the outcome of matches. Although I think if you constantly review and monitor it, the results can be promising

Ladder set up

8. August 2017 - 19:50
I hope someone may be able to help me. Whenever I open Geekstoy then open the Ladder Section the quick pick stake buttons have changed from what I had previously set them. I put them in a numerical order then save it in the Custom Profile section. However, as I said here when I open it the next time I use it they have been repopulated with different monetory values. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Customise stakes

8. August 2017 - 16:47
Sorry but I need more help.

How do I set my own stakes in the stake boxes along the top?

I'm back!

7. August 2017 - 20:41

I don't know how long I've been out of the game but I've had problems with .Net Frameworks for months and been unable to log in to GT. Last night I finally got round to updating to W10 and guess what? GT works again!

Market informaion bar.

2. August 2017 - 14:56
Hello GT.

Is it possible to make Market information bar shorter? There are a lot of text in this bar and when you open it, it closes all other tabs. This tab is important for AUS market traders, they shows Commission & Market Base Rate.


30. July 2017 - 19:13
Hi I'm a newbie to the forum and GT.
My problem is that I used to have all markets showing in the menu at top left but for some reason, I now only have horse races and I have failed to discover how to get them all back.
Any help appreciated

Do you use any paid or free live streaming services/channels apart from that which comes free with betfair, and if so which ones do you use and for what sport?

I tried. Still the same.


L.E. - FIXED. I did a clean install and now markets are loading. I don't know if this is the solution, but for me it worked

Unstable API

Ditto here. I see there's been a problem with Betfair this afternoon - almost certainly something at their end.

Footage of the markets during the ultra rare event of a stall not opening yesterday

22. July 2017 - 3:55
Hi guys it's been a long time... Hope everyone is well.

Description taken from youtube:
For those that weren't in the markets at the time, this is how the absolute carnage that was the 13:40 Newbury traded on 21st July, 2017.

I had no intention of sharing this recording beforehand and it's directly taken from my archives unedited. That means you'll have to forgive my girly laugh that's in there somewhere...

Thought I'd share this as it's pretty funny watching me trying to figure out what was going on in real time. I feel genuinely sorry for any in-play punters who got absolutely roasted here (you can see the money come even before the monkey comes and presses the big button labeled 'press when in-play').

I can only assume the layers held their bets at all prices and are thanking their lucky stars because you'd have to have some mental fortress in place to hedge there, not even sure it would be the plus EV play.

This rare event took place just one day after the drama at Killarney where a horse was led in and allowed a huge lead, with no false start. All bets were voided 20 minutes after the finish (I'm still pissed at that one).

Follow my twitter. I'll be setting up a blog at some point later in the year (primary focus: my own personal progress and horse racing trading in general)
