Matched bets not updating ladder/overall position

12. Květen 2021 - 20:13
Hi all, wonder if anyone can help.

Been having issues with GT "matching" bets but positions not being updated.

Beginning to cost me - as no issues reported on the API and nobody else seemingly having issues with GT that I can see in the forum, I'm at a loss.

Here's an example (using micro stakes to try and catch the fault) - skip to 20s (I'd already had an example but forgot to press record).
You can hear/see me put a back bet in at 4.8 then the matched bet shows up as avg odds of 4.96 however the ladder and mu overall position is not updated.

I stopped the recording but the same happened on my lay bets - what is then happening is I think I've mis-clicked, enter again and if dripping out end up going against my position by having too much on the lay side.

Any thoughts? Using 1,5b

Canceling unmatched bets

11. Květen 2021 - 12:36

I hope this is the right place to write on but anyway. So yesterday Betfair went down and they had technical dificulties for quite a while. Before the site went down I had few unmatched position open in one market. I had all of the unmatched position on "keep" so I was exposed immediately after the site came back up. Luckily market went the otherway. This got me thinking. Now I know that when I place the unmatched position on "keep" Betfair keeps them no matter what.
My question is that how does it go in same kind of a situation If I have placed unmatched bets but placed them so that they will cancel when market goes suspended? Will all of the unmatched bets cancel automatically when the site comes back online or will I be exposed no matter what? Also any feedback and help on how not to be exposed in these situations would be greatly appreciated!

How to change the tick values in the stop loss function?

How do I change the tick values in the stop loss function feauture?


High CPU usage when switching markets quickly.

This issue is still killing me. Cost me $1600 on Saturday. Are there any solutions out there?

It only happens on busy days when I undertake a hell of a lot of activity. The Toy and my open Chrome Betfair website window essentially stop working after a few hours (and usually a minute before a race I haven't squared out yet - thus the bad result Saturday!).
Bizarrely even if I close The Toy and reopen it the problem still occurs.

Even after a reboot it happens and I don't understand - I thought this would clear memory etc.
Should I do something else?

After a reboot and then closing/restarting The Toy a couple of time it seems to clear up but will reoccur again a few hours later.

I've got a bog standard PC with bog standard Windows, No VPNs or anything.

Any thoughts?

Odds comparison for place betting

6. Březen 2021 - 21:52
Not able to do much trading at the moment, so placing a few bets to keep me going.

I am trying a staking plan which involves backing in the place markets.

Does anyone have a method to calculate what is the best bet to put on when you compare the odds for 2 to place against 3 to place or 4 to place etc....?

Odds get lower the more places but then the chances of placing goes up.

Unable to open Geeks toy.

5. Březen 2021 - 15:46
A friend of mine since yesterday is unable to open geeks toy. One error that comes up is " Access to the path C:\ ProgramData\ AGeeksToy\AGeeksToy\Settings -Betfair\Versions.xml is denied"

My mate has deleted the settings folder, fired up Geeks and it works for a little while, he can close it down and open maybe a few times but then it happens again.
Then we totally deleted the whole A Geeks toy folders, then totally uninstalled Geeks Toy. Downloaded it again then fired it up and it works, again for a while, then close/open it'll work and so on, then a few goes later the error will come up again, and Geeks fails to load.

He also restored the computer to a date before all this happened, and again the same scenario, it can work for a few times opening/closing, but then the same thing happens with that error and fails to load.

I have also had this error pop up today, but the software works ok for me after dismissing that error.

Please can you enlighten us on the matter, as it is driving us mad.



stop loss issues

3. Březen 2021 - 17:42
since the BF update the stop loss automatically goes back to where it started, even if you bring it forward to less than the original point

also the trialing stop doesnt work at all

any chance of this being fixed?

Expensive Technical Error

23. Únor 2021 - 18:43
Hi Guys,

Did anyone have any technical issues today? - I lost £54.20 today because I was unable to close off a position and was forced to literally let a lay run as a bet, that even includes having a larger bankroll in use and not just relaying on my total liability to be able to close off with.... I also had no other unmatched bets elsewhere in the market:-

The race/results in question was this one:-

Horse Racing / Taun 23rd Feb : 2m7f Hcap Chs 23-Feb-21 15:05 23-Feb-21 15:13 -36.17

I realise that shows a £36 loss but I had already made a £15 green elsewhere in the market, if that makes sense......*

I tried to close off more than 15 times, with the same error message every time from the GT software of "insufficient funds" - That particular trade was always going to be a loss, but that cost me £50+ from the first time I tried to exit, to the horse winning... The scary thing is that I have no idea why it happened or what caused it.... I'm lucky that I didn't have a much larger liability at the time!

Any insight would be very much appreciated.

Many thanks


(PS - I've put this is the bugs thread put 100% convinced a BF problem and not a GT issue)

Horse Racing in OZ

I made a personal decision recently to back off the covid commentaries on here as there was more than enough of the bad news surrounding this subject on our television screens and in our daily newspapers and to add to it was not in my view creating positivity. However there has been an event that has lifted all our spirits and I think its appropriate to mention the efforts of a centurion who has given hope to a situation that many find desperate.
I speak of Sir Tom Moore and the incredible strength of this man to walk some 100 laps of his backyard to raise some AUD $55m for the British health authorities to find a solution to Covid-19. On his birthday he received some 250,000 birthday cards which is around 249,980 more than most people who turn 100 receive. He was a World War 2 veteran and he did his 100 laps dressed in formal attire with his war medals proudly attached. The Queen made him a Sir for his work and he has been granted honorary status as a Colonel. Unfortunately as you would be aware Sir Tom succumbed to a strain of covid earlier this week and Great Britain lost one of its finest.
He truly was an inspirational man. And tomorrow will be a better day!
Covid in Australia is almost non existent as we have just 9 in hospital as I write and no one in intensive care. Yet despite just one case in Western Australia the area around Perth, with about 2 million population, was locked down for 5 days. The same is on the cards for Victoria where one case also has been detected in Melbourne quarantine. Covid-19 has spooked our State premiers to the extent they panic when just one case appears. And in most cases these infections are attributed to returning Australians, who have been stranded overseas, and to the poor arrangements made by States in respect of quarantining these returnees.
Enough of the rant, lets get down to the subject matter re horse racing in Australia.
This week so far I have had 16 bets to date with one pending. The results are ok with 8 winners, 2 seconds, 2 thirds, 2 unplaced and two yet to run.
This Saturday in Australia the below mentioned races commence at Caulfield at 12.40 AEST which converts to 2.40 am London time, and the last race will be at Pinjarra Park in Western Australia at 8.27pm AEST, which is 10.27 am London time.
The early fields and selections will shortly go up below, and these will be amended as the late mail and scratchings are discovered about 5 hours prior to start times.
Hope your day is a good one and please stay safe.

There you will find the main .xml files and one folder for each Profile you have (if any)

The file you want is BetToolsDropListOptions.xml. Edit it with a text editor (ie notepad)

Where you find <int>number here</int> you change it for the number you want, you can change all

Restart the Toy and you're done ;)

Hope this helps.

PS:Try other things like adding options or reducing them ;) Hi there RManPT I know this is anl old message but I have just tried to change the number of ticks in the drop down dist to up to 30 ticks instead of 20 ticks, using the procedure you stated. I have saved it and closed Geeks and logged back in but it reverted back to the 20 ticks again. I tried it by using save as which repleaced the exisitng file but it still reverted back to a max of 20 ticks.. Any help would be greatly appreciated

Betfair Live Video not working in GT

26. Leden 2021 - 12:30
Is there any news on having Geeks call up the betfair live video or has it now been removed completely?
Other software has no issues loading it and using betfair is tedious when the software used to do it
