I know man, lol.
I dont have a credit card and am just gonna put some money on there via money order, otherwise it wont feel real and be like im playing v-bookie.
It is good cos i won on my free bet and am still using their money

Just a question about it, can we bet on alot of different boxing fights and kickboxing? Or just main title fights?
Also is it the best site out there that we can use here in Aust?

Thanks banker

its mainly just title fights. Occasionally they offer MMA but not very often. With the big Aussie fights, Mundine etc and the international superfights eg Hatton vs Mayweather, they often offer extra options like what round the fight will end etc etc

i think it is the best one in Aus, mainly because they are very reputable and its never hard to get access to a TAB if you need to add/withdrawl funds

I'm with Sportingbet, usually build up a bank nicely and then blow it all it on a drunken rampage. A mate has recommended Betfair to me, you may know them as the mob that allows you to bet on losing horses etc.

Yeah i was talking bout the Sportsbet, not the tab one.
But yeh i was hoping they would have more boxing fights than the tab, just like in america how they can bet on heaps more boxing fights.
I saw their mma one and they got 3 fights so im happy bout that.

If you are serious about gambling then BETFAIR is a must. You are basically betting against other people whether it be winning or losing etc.... Betfair takes out a small percentage of winning bets, the more you invest/win over a period of time the less the percentage will be.....i.e less then 2-3%

TAB sporting odds are convenient but always a lower price then other sports betting operations...example may be England may be $2.60 to win WC but other organisation my bet $2.80-$3 for instance.

They usually bet to 120% of the market. Thus 20% profit margin

Very true. I'd go even further and say the TAB is a dead set rip off who frame markets that are 99% "unders" compared to other agencies.

How many big punters bet with the TAB? I'd safely say next to zero.

Yup, agree with all said so far but will say I wasn't impressed with sportingbets odds on the neddies, but only bet on them once in a blue moon anyways. More useful for general sports and some silly crap like Idol, elections, etc.

Man net gambling can be a problem..Especially with net banking aswell..

I play online poker and have won 1650 in 2hours play before but have also lost 250m plus bucks in 30seconds many times..

I have made up to 3grand profit in a week before but have finished many times losing hundreds in a week.

I have had to wake up to myself and limit my playing.I now just play in freeroll tournys that offer small cash prizes etc..

Also it aint real healthy sitting infront of the computer gambling for hours on end...

Its all good when i was making at times 5grand a month in winnings but then its ****ed chasing massive loses...

Man dont do it..can **** you up...
