Hello everyone,

I'd like to share my thought with you.
And I'd like to know what the experienced arbers think about this.

I started arbing 4 years ago and I noticed that my monthly turn over is getting less by every month.
If I monitoring quarterly, my turn over is 60-70% less than in the same quarter in the previous year.
The bookies following the odds movement very quickly and they often trying to trick you with changing the odds direction within in a few minutes.

Do you guys experiencing the same things?

Bookmakers have much better arbitrage services too now :(

For example Betradar is providing an arb service for about every bookmaker now.
" Trading Tools, It is a complete market monitoring tool specifically designed to monitor the bookmakers and avoid sure bets. Constant updates avoid arbitrage situations (sure bets) and allow direct use for end customer business"

Hopefully it does not have all cross market arbitrages covered yet :)

Yes, it is getting tougher and tougher, even for pros.
We are discussing the death of arbing for years now. Every day we are getting closer.
It is not only bookmakers that is killing it, it is also regulations. Some already implemented, some coming soon to a screen near you.

I agree with beatbookies - betradar is a pain for us - AND - more and more bookies use their services :(
