THIS post was first put up last week and since then hundreds more have signed up to be either a Basic, Silver or Gold Member.
We're building up a nice community and while some are still getting a handle on using the new site I'm sure in time people will get what we're trying to achieve.
One of the main complaints on the old site was about tipping threads being clogged up by chat and trolls – this is one reason why we added a forum. If you haven't yet visited take a look – there's some good threads on there and I've added a Cashout and Covering Masterclass this week.
All members (including Basic) were treated to the first in a series of my Masterclass articles which will feature how to pick a bit, best practices and tips on how to become a better bettor.
On the subject of memberships a few people have been asking what's in it for Silver and Gold Members? You can take the tour to find out more about what you'll get as a paying member.
Almost half of our Annual (Gold) Members have now received their £10 free bet. If you've not got a Coral account yet follow the instructions here to open one and claim your free bet. Existing customers will also receive the free bet.
My Members Only Bet of the Day produced five winners in a row at prices of 8-11, 15-8, 4-9, 3-4 and 1-2 before being beaten by Fiorentina. That will start again on Tuesday and the Betting Club will also resume – and I'm also doing a £10-£100 challenge exclusively on goals bets so watch out for that and contribute if you can.
Annual (Gold) Members can share in my end-of-season dividend based on all my Betting Club winnings. I start with £10 each week, doubling up each bet trying to make as much cash as I can.
The Forums are starting to take some shape and there have been three tips from Bounty Punter (2 winners, 1 loser) and the introduction of my Super Super Single bet. Bounty Punter tells me he can't promise much in December but will be active in January when his favourite club friendly fixtures return.
Admin posted piles of team news at the weekend and that's a valuable addition and in the Your Team Your Call forum you can win a free bet if you give reasoning and predict your own team's result.
The Both Teams to Score and win challenge is offering two contributors the chance to share in the proceeds of a fourfold and it was two out of four last weekend.
Members also had the chance to participate in Saturday's Racing Contest for the chance to win £10 at Bet365.
And look out soon for a bumper Christmas giveaway for members only in what we will be a popular Last Man Standing contest.
On the betting front as well as Bounty Punter we have Greg Browning and Desmond's mainly goals tips and Scott Allott's European and goals tips. Johnb gives us his racing expertise and LockupTipster is back to give us his best bets for the World Series of Darts.
Ace Venturer made a profit of around 50 points on his weekend golf bets including 1.5pts ew on Kevin Kisner who won at 20-1.
You get all of this and more for £35 a year (including a £10 free bet). It's got to be the best value on the net – and if you sign you'll be able to see even more of the likes of Greg, Desmond and Ace.
