My girlfriend's old man's betting slip from Saturday.

Pay particular attention to the only result wrong - Everton getting a draw, when he needed a win - so, 1 solitary goal. (I think they even hit the post a couple of times)

Then, pay particular attention to the potential returns at the bottom of the slip (ignore the top bit, that was from a different bet)

I know.

If it were me, I'd have just slung the slip, but he had another couple on there, so just checked the scores against that incidentally.

The last tick has a somewhat "rrrr f&ck it" sort of feel to it..............so much so that he hasn't strength to tick off the final match properly.

Tiny little tick to finish... :lol:

Anyone done the refer and earn thing on betfair?

Refer a friend and you get £25.

They get their stake up to £25 matched. No roll over neccesary for the matched stake. For example, I backed barca for £25 at 1.25 and got about £31 back plus the £25 = £51 that I could withdraw straight away and my mate got £25.

If anyone wants a referal code PM me...

Three card poker?

used to love that game, where do you play it?

Not sure on the rules of brag but poker you get dealt 3 cards and play against the dealer
You can place bets on the "ante" "pairs plus" and "prime"
So just like poker it starts with highest card and works upwards towards straight flush
All hands must be played via the "ante bet" pairs plus and prime are optional
Pairs plus are what it says on the tin, prime are if your cards are the same colour (same suit or mixed)
The maximum you get paid out is 33/1 the average pay out is just over evens per hand but you get a few 5/1+ hands being dealt every few hands
