LANG may yer lum reek! – If you're not Scottish then you've probably no idea what that means but suffice to say it's a traditional way of wishing someone a long and healthy life at New Year.
And for one lucky member of the site their year couldn't get off to a better start.
Long-time member @Hullshaker can kick-off 2018 with a spring in his step as he was randomly chosen earlier today as the winner of my second £500 giveaway in a week.
Regular visitors will know that I recently completed a £10 – £1,000 Challenge as part of my Betting Club, which is exclusively available to Gold Members, and I vowed to give away the winnings to a couple of members for Christmas and New Year. Last week it was @wato that scooped £500 on Christmas Day and today's it's @Hullshaker's turn to celebrate the festive season with a £500 bonus. (Check your email @Hullshaker).
The competition was open to all Gold Members and if you've not already signed up to enjoy the benefits you can click here to get started.
2018 is shaping to be a good be year with a World Cup to look forward to in the Summer, the Ryder Cup in September and all the usual highlights such as the Champions League, the Cheltenham Festival and of course, Clydebank FC staving off relegation from the Premier Division.
We'll be freshening things up on the site over the next few weeks too, with a new look home page and dedicated sections for Football, Racing and Golf so stay tuned and let's bash the bookies in 2018!
Happy New Year.
