IT'S a new month and the perfect time to introduce some new features to the site. By now you've probably noticed we've made a change to the home page, making it more like it used to be. We've taken some feedback on board and aim to continue to adapt and refine the site based on our members' preferences.
New Racing Partner
I'm delighted to start the month with a new partner for our racing coverage. RaceBets are an up and coming online bookie who focus only on racing. Their comprehensive site brings you racing from over 40 countries, more than any other online bookie so if you're serious about betting on the GGs or the dogs make sure you check them out. They'll be providing some free bets for my weekly racing contest so plenty of you will get the chance to check them out with a free bet or two.
Winner Takes It All Competition
I've also launched a brand new competition for Silver and Gold Members, called Winner Takes It All, where £200 in cash can be won if you can name the winners of the Premier League, the Championship, the FA Cup, the Europa League and the Champions League this season. Make sure you get your entry in before the deadline on Saturday at 12 noon.
March Madness Promotion
I've also launched one of my biggest giveaways called March Madness. Every Gold Member, current and new, can claim the cost of their subscription back in CASH by opening a new account and placing their first bet at three of our partner sites during the month of March.
More Members Only Tips
We'll be introducing some more members-only tips on the site. The ever-popular Desmond will be pitching in with more goals tips by now marking your card on the both teams to score markets. His 2+ goals tips will remain accessible to everyone but from today Scott Allot's European tips will be members-only.
Ace Venturer's outright golf tips will be seen by everyone and from this weekend he's going to add match bets and in-play tips on the forum so let's see some opinion and interaction on there.
Exclusive Members-Only Contests
The Win & Both Teams to Score Contest will continue with two members picking doubles and going 50-50 on any winnings after we place their bet.
Also one member will play me in a £10 to £100 Challenge that will start on Saturday. If you beat me to £100 you will win £100 cash – and a chance to double it on an even-money shot.
On the Forum
During the month of March we'll be trying to get things going in the forums. The original idea of the forums was they'd be somewhere you could post stuff that didn't fit in on the regular blog posts. Things like team news for the weekend, betting challenges, long-term bets and tips and discussion on a range of other sports. It's fair to say it's not caught fire yet.
Our team are going to be more pro-active in the forums and you can help by popping by and joining in the discussions. For example, there's forums started on this week's matches in the Premier League, Championship, League One, League Two and in Scotland so if you've any thoughts on specific matches or team news related to injuries or suspensions that may help people with their bets let's hear about it.
There will also be a Daily Poll and today I'm asking: Who will win the Premier League? Vote on the forum and everyone who votes will have a chance of winning a free bet at the end of the month.
On the Site Today
Today on the site you'll find my Top Tips, covering my bets for tonight's busy card of fixtures and my thoughts on tonight's action in Scotland where there's a full compliment of games in the Championship as well as a couple of Premiership matches.
Johnb will be aiming to start March in the same vein as he finished February – with a winner on the horses and keep your eyes peeled for Lockuptipster's tips for Thursday's Premier League Darts as well as the start of another Betting Club challenge bet where I try to win as much as I can from £10 in a series of bets on behalf of Gold Members.
