Sometimes/most times we slate bookmakers for being greedy etc,but hats off to William hill for given me £64 this morning as a freebie that I knew nothing about.
Because I play the Vegas Roulette they gave me this & instead of me going to deposit money from my bank to the account I can use this instead for the football tonight..happy days :-)

I can also collect the £64 if I wished.

Roulette is weighted as 25% for wagering requirements, so you would need to play 80x (Deposit + Bonus). If you try to withdraw before this then the bonus and any winnings are void.

Yes it is a mugs game,but now & then you can get some good results like I had about 3-4 months ago where I won around £6-£7,000 so it does/can happen.

Porto look too short at 8/13 - Villarreal a very dangerous side, score goals at will. I'd have taken ove 2.5 goals, probably at slightly better odds than 8/13, instead of Porto to win..

You won £7k? On the roulette? Seriously, that is far to much money to be gambling to be able to achieve that return.

Be careful.

What are the odds on a single number on roulette? Is it something like 33/1?

That means OP was betting over £200 on a number to get even close to £7k.

Unless it was built up over a series of bits, but we all know roulette isn't that kind of game - win once and move on!

It's 35/1 & no I was not betting £200 on 1 number (I wish).
With roulette I think it's best to take very few numbers & if your hot your hot.
They also give you a Free £25 (yes you can collect it) if you spend £500 or more in any 1 month & that is very easy.
You can stick £250 on Red & the same on Black & £15 on 0 you can't lose & will always win every single time, but only once a month.

How does that work? If it came up 30, you lose £15 surely?
Oh, you mean from the free bet? OK, I'm thinking the odds are against you on this.

So back to that £7k.......

£7K was mostly on roulette,but also on other sports.

Back to my Free bet,how good is it looking just now after 65 mins :-)

Also remember I was saying about mistakes happening very often & getting paid-out,well I stuck £500 on Ajax on Sunday when they scored a 2nd goal with only 19 mins to go & I got them at 17/20 & then they went to 1/12 so it pays to hang around the site with "Betting in play".

You put 500 pounds on a football match?

That's far too much money Nuts.

I have a tipple with a few quid for a bit of fun, but £500 on a match is far too much - regardless of your financial situation.

I used to play a bit of black jack at William Hill and often witnessed some guys betting 1k hands - some even then splitting to 2k, and losing! It put me right off the whole thing.

You might win once in a while, which is nice, but do be careful. A couple of freaky results and you are then chasing your losses.

Think what else you could do with the money you will no doubt lose.

Lol OP gonna get lolled into false sense of security and will end up betting thousands on a 2-0 result @ 80 mins and will then get stung when a game ends in a draw.

I've gambled for many years & I'm not as stupid as I look (honest).
The £500 on the football teams is not a average bet for me,but was one I could not turn down due to the bookie making the mistake.

I once bet £200 to win £50 with about 10 mins to go. I lost and havn't bet as big since.
