Organise Yourself to Protect Your Gambling Profits : Even if you Aren’t an Accountant

I want to start with hinting a quick story that highlights why organisation is so useful. About a year ago I was taking advantage of a lot of sports bets free offers in quick succession. I had mahadewa88 probably six in less than a couple of weeks. It was great, the money was pouring in £25 here £50 there.

I was pretty new to online playing in those days and didn’t really are concerned about keeping records of what I was doing. I just went from one offer to another and looked in on my bank account every so often to make sure it was steadily increasing. Organisation and record keeping are for accountants : well that’s what I thought then.

A few months later I happened to log into a bookie account that i had forgotten that i had opted to. It turned out that i had deposited £50 there and just did not remember about it. Although £50 doesn’t sound like much money if i had done this repetitions it could have built to a substantial amount.

I went and checked back through my emails and tried different sites that i may have already joined up to. I found another £75 in earnings that i had forgotten to withdraw from 4 months previously. There may have been more out there I really don’t know.

But that was enough money almost lost to make me reexamine my attitude towards keeping records. Now I keep track of the date I join a web site, the name of the site, the amount deposited, the odds attached and laid (if I am matched betting), the net profit and the details of any cashback I have received.

One good thing about this is that i had never considered before is that occasionally the bookie can make an oversight in your payout. I had never even checked before I started keeping records of my transactions. It also guarantees that you will remember a deposit that you have made and any cashback to be paid to you can be chased up if it is not honored.

It is so simple to make a spreadsheet in excel or whatever package you use. Keeping it up to date is easy too : just get into the habit of recording the information as soon as you have made a bet or joined a new site. It soon becomes a habit that you will be glad you bought.
