We all know that the Eurovision song contest is one of the greatest arbing events.
To be realistic, we have to stress that limits and reduced volumes in the exchanges are contributing greatly to a harder work compared to what this competition was some years ago.

I would like to bring to your attention a couple of facts that would help a sharp player make some extra cash from this contest:
1. It is of great importance to know how the voting procedure will be presented to the viewers. If you know in advance how this procedure unfolds, you have a serious advantage against the competition. If you have a couple-3 of scenarios prepared in advance, you might be able to capitalize them during the course of the competition.
2. This year, the voting procedure was presented in 2 stages. The 1st stage was presenting the voting of the commissioners, or whatever these people are called. At this stage, capitalization was hard work to do. However, in the 2nd stage, there was one cornerstone prerequisite that a sharp player should take into account. That was the fact that the total points given were known in advance. So, if you add the points as they were presented, you could easily know how many points were left to be distributed. In the end, the number of points left was getting lower and lower. At the end of the competition, one country needed 254 or more points to win the competition. But the clever gambler already knew how many points were left. The TV coverage gave more than a minute before announcing the points left. During this minute, the sharp player would be able to place an uncovered bet for the winner. I have to say that some bookmakers locked the event at this stage, but others were still accepting bets, even though it seems that some people knew what was going on.
3. A smart bettor would take into account that some countries are not favored by the viewers and will always have an additional burden in this competition. That would make the last 3 or 4 competitors known far before the commentators announce their results.

Value betting talk / The Arbusers Value Betting Index II
« on: May 13, 2019, 12:07:11 PM »
We all remember the Arbusers Value Betting Index that went on for almost a year. It was a very successful thread as a lot of knowledge was distributed.
A number of members asked that we continue presenting the AVBI. However, this year we are having some significant changes.
1st, O4S is about to be sold to an investor and we are not sure what the will of this investor will be.
2nd, the WGFP bot now has its own thread in the forum where stats are presented.
3rd, a number of value bettors who were placing their bets manually online or offline are not willing to share their stats with us. We came to a point where only 2 value bettors are sending us their performances and we consider this sample insufficient.

Therefore we decided to present the Arbusers Value Betting Index II, that will consist of manually placed bets by Attila Pasztor and his team. You already know Attila from the AVBI I index.

The AVBI II will introduce a couple-three of new things.
1st. It is using only sharp bookmakers/exchanges, namely, Pinnacle, Betfair, SBObet, Matchbook, BLACK, AsianOdds, Molybet, etc. No soft books at all.
2nd, after discussions with Attila we decided to offer exactly the same services to a number of members that will be selected soon.
3rd, All members will be able to use the AVBI for educational reasons, but those selected members will have access to valuable knowledge and data.

In the coming minutes, we will present the stats from April 2019 that was the first month of AVBI II.

Thank you.

Bookies discussion / EveryMatrix to revive Mybet
« on: April 30, 2019, 12:11:26 PM »
EveryMatrix and Rhinoceros Group are joining forces to revitalize German bookmaker Mybet. It remains to be seen to what extent the new scheme will bring Mybet back online, addressing the international markets, or focus on the German market strictly where it still maintains a Schleswig-Holstein sports betting license.
Mybet will also need a new managerial injection, as the previous management scheme failed to keep the brand healthy.

Announcements / Arbusers position on fund passing incidents
« on: February 14, 2019, 07:12:14 PM »
During these last days we had the chance to speak with a number of industry’s actors about fund passing situations.
It became evident that a lot of bad will, and not smart gambling, is enabled in these situations.
Therefore we would like to inform all members that our forum will not support anyone who uses any fund passing technique.
In addition, we do not advise our members to use these techniques as the risk of capital evaporation is immense.
Thank you.

« on: February 13, 2019, 11:47:10 AM »
There is information in industry's media that Pinnacle, Smarkets and 1xbet obtained Italian licences. It remains to be seen what odds and services they will provide to the Italian audience. In addition, some of the new licensees might have to provide reliability guaranteed.

Arbing, matched betting and trading talk / Captain's log 2018.
« on: December 14, 2018, 03:33:32 PM »
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0DxsuRLOWfA


This is the arbusers.com annual review of the smart betting scene for the year 2018.
It is conducted in good will with hope it will contribute to the understanding of this particular field. We ll try to post a similar review each year so we have a time lapse of the smart betting scene. We advise that you take a look at the review of the previous years in our forum or youtube channel.
here and here

The use of the word Captain has no intention to imply that I m the chief or the leading character of this community that expands beyond this forum. I encourage all members to post their opinion and thus contribute to this effort.

Now let’s examine the main forms of smart betting and see how they performed during the year.
Pre game arbitrage is no longer able to maintain decent levels of profit.
Live arbitrage is resilient and will continue offering profits to the players. The psychological burden of live arbitrage is heavier than in any other form of smart betting.
Value betting is now dominant and pays back properly, according to invested time and effort. There are 2 distinct types of Value Betting. Manual, and automated Value Betting with the use of bots. We invested a lot of time money and efforts to analyse the performance of these 2 types of Value Betting. We can now say that Value Betting with bots is more productive and less stressful compared to any other way.
In the review of 2017 we alarmed all players that lavish contracts have been awarded to software providers in order to tackle the use of bots and their results were just about to materialise. Unfortunately we were very much correct and a well know bookmaker managed to neutralise the use of bots. As a result many players were exposed to risks and some of them finished their betting careers abruptly and took their losses. We strongly advise players to calculate their risks before taking any initiative. Bots are not risk free. We also advise that you read the forum for more information about the use of bots.
The scenery of the Value Betting field was completed with the launch of RebelBetting’s and Betburger’s Value Betting tools that are considered to be a good entry.
Here is arbusers.com, we continue experimenting with products and techniques by risking our own hard earned capital, and we inform our members when a good project is ready.

In the exchanges scene, during 2018 Matchbook imposed premium charges, while 21Bet caused turbulence as their exchange product was shut for almost 2 weeks and balances of their clients were frozen for months. Our forum went to extremes to secure that all referred by arbusers members would get their funds back in total and thankfully we managed to achieve this.

E-wallets became even more expensive and that was noticed by our fees sensitive community. E-wallet’s problem is, that they don't really understand who the client is and what the product is. They believe that bookmakers are the clients and players are the products, while in reality, players are the clients and bookmakers are the products. As a result, Cryptocurrencies, banks and Hawala systems are taking the lion’s share. Cash market, that was considered finished since the early nineties is now gaining momentum because of the higher fees imposed by e-wallets. This leads to a vicious spiral forcing e-wallets to raise their fees even more in order to keep their profits, while clients are moving away. The remaining clients will have to pay a premium for continuing using e-wallets. We lobby hard to stop this spiral.
A side effect of this is that several bookmakers including Pinnacle are now accepting Bitcoin payments.

Pinnacle, withdrew from Australia and several agents stopped offering Pinbet accounts to UK residents.

The UK announced that gambling tax for operators will be 21% while it remains to be seen to what extend bookmakers could absorb this burden or roll it over to players and affiliates. Many countries followed this paradigm and imposed higher taxes on gambling, proving that Soviet style taxation is still alive in Europe.
Unfair regulations, taxation and higher fees, are pushing players to grey areas.
On the other hand, the US Supreme Court under Trump’s liberal presidency, decided to legalise sports betting.

A large part of our reviews are dedicated in the low business ethics of several actors of the industry. We still consider that a proportion of profits should be set aside for legal fees, as several bookmakers are tempted to confiscate well deserved winnings especially when these winnings are at a level that wouldn’t justify the use of a solicitor.

5Dimes manager Tony, has been found dead in Costa Rica after an apparent kidnapping for ransoms.

2018 was another difficult year added in the chain but also it was the year that highlighted Value Betting as the next big thing in the smart betting scene. Maybe there is still time, and money to be made.

I wrote this annual review in good will, hoping that it will contribute to the understanding of this very particular field of arbitrage and smart gambling.

Thank you for reading.

Bookies discussion / Sweden re-regulating online gambling marketplace
« on: December 06, 2018, 03:31:11 PM »
Swedish gambling regulator has announced its first sixteen approved operators, which will be allowed to service Sweden’s online gambling audience from 1st of January 2019.
This is one but not the last stop over of a series of events that triggered a wide discussion among bookmakers, players and the state. It is expected that the number of licenses will increase, some say that almost 50 licenses could be granted.
It remains to be seen what is the environment for the players as some Scandinavian gambling markets are well known for overtaxation and poor odds offer to the players. On the other hand, deep throats believe that a similar market to Italy and Spain could be set to offer unimaginable chances for the smart player.
