Daryl Curnow They are the best Australia has to offer and they cater to all betting levels. Keeping sound with your money management couldn’t be anymore important and punters should know that some days will be better than others. Staking plans can often involve more than one runner in a race. Most professional punters take advantage of these situations when they arise. The horse still might win, but if you consistently take shorter odds than you have framed then it will be a struggle to turn a profit. Some punters have success betting on odds-on favourites and some have success betting on double-figure chances. It’s all personal preference when it comes to assessing value. Taking the emotion out can make betting less exciting, but making money is more important to the professionals so stay calm and stick to the plan. There is no set strategy when it comes to different types of wagers. If the quaddie pool isn’t very big then the professionals won’t target that bet type, but during the Melbourne spring carnival the betting pools are massive and that’s the best time to strike.

The only problem is you want to bet small, have no idea how to place a bet, what all these numbers mean, and have heard of but never understood what a trifecta is. Oh, and you want to know how to select a winner! READ ON You can add more greyhounds to the mix to improve your chances. The start is one of the most important factors to assess because a good start can mean a greyhound will avoid a squeeze. Here is a snap shot of a Speed Map, overlaid with some comments by ourselves: Study these closely as even a fraction difference can determine a race. If a dog ran a poor 1st sectional last start, check from which box it ran from. If it is box 4, 5 or 6 then you could forgive it. Look for best times and best sectionals, but discount anything more than 4-5 months old. Check how many races the greyhound has won and its placings. You will see numbers like 45-7-4-3 which means the greyhound has run 45 times of which it has won 7 times, come second 4 times and third 3 times. Other information is important such as the record of the Trainer and first-time starters at Wentworth Park, but overall the variables and inputs that influence a race start to shrink. Unlike the horses there is no need to check track conditions, weather, the jockey, whether the rail is out or if its a full moon etc. Minor considerations might include whether your selection is a bitch (female) and if two dogs (male) are placed either side of it at the starting boxes. Dogs are bigger than bitches (about 5kg) and can therefore crowd her style at the start if they are level starters.

There is a lot of science to picking a winner, and this makes the analytical exercise enjoyable for many, but the time spent is probably 25% of what you need to consider relative to assessing a horse race. However, because bookmakers and the TAB clip the odds, the market odds available are actually less than what would be available without an intermediary, thus elevating the sum of the field's probabilities above 100%. You'll note that the probabilities of each greyhound adds up to a figure greater than 100%. However, the wheel of fortune adjusts the percentages of each runner to accurately illustrate the probability of winning according to the market. Using the wheel, you can try and imagine which number you might back based on risk and return.Remember the dot-com boom anyone?) Whilst these odds are not translated into probabilities, you can simply do this translation in the spreadsheet provided above and write it in the racebook. We discuss the latter which is seldom considered by punters. Without an 'edge’, the punter cannot raise the expected return above zero. In many cases, such as the flip of a coin, the edge does not exist deeming any betting participation as futile. On course, Wentworth Park subscribes to the tipping services of the curiously named Giddy-Up which is designed largely to provide theoretical prices for each runner (rather than clear cut race winners) and speed maps. If punters can secure better odds than their model predicts, they may have an edge. The service is located on screens in the bookmakers' betting ring. This is largely overlooked by most racetrack followers. It is what we refer to as the Risk Management process or Stage 2 of the betting process. Whilst the original Kelly paper detailing how the formula was derived will be too difficult for most readers to understand, the end formula is quite simply: Garbage in, Garbage Out!

It perhaps works best when Giddy Up's second and third favourites are mispriced by the market because too much money is directed at the favourite. In this example, the fixed odds available for Black Magic Opal are slightly above the Giddy-Up estimate.This is because the formula can produce outlay amounts that may not be intuitive, especially should your bankroll grow and the outlays for each bet become much bigger. The model will also produce wild swings in balances that can throw a punter's confidence in the system, setting back punters or producing significant short term growth that instils an unrealistic level of confidence in the system which subsequently distorts future inputs. When this occurs, punters can lack the discipline required and either ignore the recommendation or revise their probability inputs so that a bet can be made. In this instance, if you estimate the probability of a greyhound winning is 35%, then your probability of it LOSING is automatically 65%.For example, 27% If 'No Bet' appears, then do not bet This will carry forward the balance to the next line The information above is of a very general nature and is provided as a guide only. The usual disclaimers regarding no acceptance or responsibility for accuracy apply, including the use of the sample excel spreadsheet. The John Kelly Formula is merely a tool amongst many that may be of use to some gamblers. Giddy-Up also provides no guarantee that their service will generate any return in isolation. Giddy-Up is a service we subscribe to and we have no affiliation with beyond that subscription. Whilst most people enjoy gambling for entertainment only and apply the “zero expected return” ethos, it is a problem for some. See here for more information regarding problem gambling.

PayPal and Card payments only.Free entry to RaceBets Million given within 24 hours.In the UK, horse racing is believed to date back to the 17th century during the reign of King James I. Consequently, many of today’s courses are sited on or close to old royal hunting grounds. The sport really gained influence in the 18th century during the reign of King Charles II who established Newmarket which today is the home of British National Stud Bloodstock, the showcase for British Thoroughbred breeding, at Rowley Mile.

The newly formed organisation, which is still in existence today and runs 14 British racecourses, set the rules of the sport, prevented dishonesty and set about creating a level playing field for those involved. Thirty years later in 1780 the Epsom Derby was run for the first time, four years after the first running of the St Leger Stakes in 1776. Today, along with the 1,000 Guineas, 2,000 Guineas and The Oaks, these make up Britain’s five classic races. Through the centuries, horse racing became more and more popular and thanks to TV and the internet, it is now one of the most watched and bet on sports in the UK. They are a test of speed, stamina and skill. Both are split into classes from 1-7. Famous handicap races include the Grand National (UK) and the Melbourne Cup (Australia). Handicap weights are calculated based on the official ratings published by the British Horse Racing Authority and are expressed in imperial pounds. The bigger the number assigned to a horse, the more capable it is considered to be. When you place a bet you'll usually be given the choice of the current odds on the selection and the Starting Price. However, most online bookmakers offer best odds guaranteed which means you will be paid out at the bigger price regardless. Almost all bookmakers will refund your stake if you back a horse that later becomes a non-runner on the day. It is a deduction on the odds at the rate of 90% to the pound. These can be placed a long time ahead, as soon as the market opens. Bookmakers will not typically offer non-runner refunds on ante post bets. When the bet is under the condition of NRNB, then the stake will be returned in full to the customer, otherwise no refund will be forthcoming. Below we'll explain each in detail. As you can imagine, this can be extremely difficult, but the rewards can be huge. The advantage of a Trixie bet is that should 1 selection fail, you will still get a return.

The main advantage of a Patent bet is that you only need 1 successful horse to generate a return. With a Yankee, you need at least 2 selections to be successful to generate a return. With a Lucky 15, you only need one selection to be successful to generate a return. With a Super Yankee, you need at least 2 selections to be successful to generate a return. With a Lucky 31, you only need at 1 selection to be successful to generate a return. You need 2 selections to be successful to generate a return. With a Heinz, you need at least 2 selections to be successful to generate a return. With a Lucky63, you need at least 2 selections to be successful to generate a return. With a Super Heinz, you need at least 2 selections to be successful to generate a return. With a Goliath, you need at least 2 selections to be successful to generate a return. We'll explain the basics below but for a comprehensive explanation you can read our ultimate guide to understanding how betting odds work. Decimal odds quote the exact amount that will be paid out should the bet win. For example, for odds of 10.0, for every ?1 you place, you will receive a total return of ?10 (10.0 x ?1). A horse racing form card, or race card, has a deliberate structure and gives you information about each race. Being able to read a horse racing form card is, understandably, very important if you want to be successful. You can use the image below of a fairly standard online UK racecard as reference. These numbers are always displayed on a racecard in order of the amount of weight the horse is carrying. The lower the number, the closer the horse will be to the rails which can be an advantage on certain tracks and distances. Form runs from left to right, with the oldest races on the left and the most recent on the right. You will also see a number (which shows how many days it was since the horse last ran) and some abbreviations.

You may also see some more abbreviations depending on whether the horse is wearing or using any equipment. If a jockey has a number in brackets to the side of his name then it means he is an apprentice jockey and is claiming a weight allowance. You can find up to date going reports on Twitter or by with leading online bookmakers. It is run over a distance of around 2 miles and.The race is open to horses aged five years or older. It is run over a distance of about 2 miles during which there are thirteen fences to be jumped. It is one of the most prestigious races in British racing and is chased over a distance of about 3 miles 2? furlongs during which there are 22 fences to be jumped. It is a handicap steeplechase with a huge field of 40 horses that takes place over a distance of 4 miles and 2? furlongs that includes 30 fences and two laps and was first run in 1839. This NOT one of Britain’s five classics, no National Hunt races are. It is run on the 26 th of December, known in the UK as Boxing Day, and is part of Kempton Park’s Christmas Festival. The race goes off over around 3 miles and includes eighteen hurdles to jump. It is one of Britain's five Classic races and the first to run each year. The race goes off on the Rowley Mile at Newmarket over a distance of 1 mile and it is scheduled to take place each year in late April or early May. The race is run on the Rowley Mile at Newmarket over a distance of 1 mile and is open to three-year-old fillies. It is run at Epsom Downs over a distance of 1 mile, 4 furlongs and it is scheduled to take place each year in late May or early June. It is the second oldest of the five Classic races and the third of Britain's five Classic races to be held during the season. It is run at Epsom Downs Racecourse over a distance of one mile, four furlongs and 6 yards on the first Saturday of June each year. It is Britain's richest horse race, and the most prestigious of the five Classics.

It is run over a distance of 1 mile; 6 furlongs and 115 yards takes place each year in September. The St Leger is the oldest of Britain's five Classics and the last of the five to be run each year. These include, but are in no way limited to, the following: It is a 3200-metre race for three-year-olds and over and is held each year at the Flemington Racecourse in Melbourne, Victoria as part of the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival. It is the richest “two-mile” handicap in the world. The race normally runs on the first Saturday in May, capping the two-week-long Kentucky Derby Festival. The race is an American Grade I stakes for three-year-old thoroughbreds and goes off over a distance of one and a quarter miles at Churchill Downs. It is run at Longchamp in Paris over a distance of 2,400 metres and takes place each year on the first Sunday in October. After the Epsom Derby, the race is generally considered to be Europe's second most prestigious horse race. The race is run at Dubai’s Meydan Racecourse each year in March as the final race Dubai World Cup night.

The Apache webserver serves the requests by querying the MySQL database where user identification, player-tokens and winning number records are stored and sends bet receipt SMS messages directly to users. To access the system a player enters a pre-purchased to ken number that allows them several chances via keypad. The remote server checks the token for authenticity, allows the user to enter a 6-digit number and registers the number in the database. It then sends a bet acknowledgement SMS while the LCD displays system transaction messages. This system eliminates the use of paper in betting slips, receipts and associat ed spoilt paper.

It also re places most human processes with inherent machine speed-up and continuous service availability. The system also reduces customer loitering and queuing, consequently eliminating crowding and associated environmental hazards.The player then selects and crosses out any 6 of the 45 numbers, as shown in Figure 1, and submits the betting card to the c lerk together with the payment. The system in its current form is laborious, time consuming and environmentally hazardous as spoilt betting cards are often thrown away by punters and, furthermore, some paper is rejected by the scanner system as it effectively works with flat surfaces. The se factors are also unfavourable for business growth as new clients are discouraged by long queue s and poor service time. The number of customers also directly impacts on community development in the long term. This research seeks to improve the whole system performance and offer a sound return on investment over a reasonably short period of time. This will be made possible by introducing an interactive betting console that connects t o a database over an Ethernet network. Th is paper briefly examines similar systems in form of patent applications and states the main aim of the study and system objectives. This is followed by th e methodology section which describ es system hardware and software development that then leads to the system integration and testing section, c ulminating in deployment and concludes with some sample results. The research is of a practical nature and hopes the system m ay eve ntually be implemented or some of the ideas adopted in similar or different systems. 2 SOME RELATED RESEARCH The authors examined some of the research and developmental work i n the field of lottery technology to determine the trends and possibly identify any gaps in them that they could fill.The participant can register their selection with an entry-logging engine.

This engine records the details of the participant (for example telephone number or email address), the number selected, the date and time of the entry, and, an optional receipt number. There are various ways in which the SMS message can be parsed such as looking for a number (which indicates the number of entries) and an associated pick. The two indicate that use of the IT backbone secures both domestic and international competitiveness, resulting in improved investment efficiency. The ir system uses a personal terminal or a versatile TV terminal (which has a two -way function) to access a public switched telecommunication network or a broadcasting network. The punters have to access the network to purchase a lottery ticket and check the winning ticket. 3 AIM AND OBJECTIVES 3.1 Aim The aim was to design a functionally lightweight embedded web client system that could be used as an automated standalone lotto booth, allowing users to submit their bets over the Internet and receive bet acknowledgements wit hout filling in any paperwork and with minimum or no human assistance. 3.2 Objectiv es The objectives were to deliver a system that easily fits int o the existing system network with the following major features. The system should be robust such that it can smoothly handle errors and exceptions. The current system serves many different web clients from different devices including mobile phones, us ing web browser s like Google Chrome among oth er s. A bet placed by a client is a request to the server for some file, which the server pushes back to the client through his or her browser for viewing. The IPoB will send a keypad input formatted as a client request to the server and when the response arrives back the system will be configured to interpret and di splay the information on the console screen.The IPoB system used the Arduino Uno Revision 3 (or R3) shown in Figure 4.

The Arduino Uno Revision 3 (or R3) board features an ATmega328 microcontroller on board, like other Arduinos, but differs from all preceding boards in that its USB- to -Serial converter chip uses the more powerful ATmega16U2 instead of the 8U2, has a highly sensitive RESET circuit and input output reference (IOREF) that allows exter nal shields to adapt to the voltage provided from the board automatically.The rest of the pins are used for powering external devices during development, or other Arduino accessory boards called shields which have pins that have the sam e form-factor as the basic Arduino developmen t board. Fi gure 6 shows an Ethernet shield connected on top of the Arduino via the pins- to -headers coupling. The In Circuit Serial Programming (ICSP) pin terminal bl ock on the right edge of the board provides the Serial Peripheral Interface (SPI) bus interface for connecting with the Ethernet Controller and, can also be used for program ming the Arduino from an external programmer. The keypad is a matrix of switches that connect at the intersection of row — column conductor lines as shown in Figure 5. To use the keypad the rows and column pins must be identified using the manufacturer’s datasheet or manually by depressing each key and testing for circuit continuity between the pins usi ng an ohmm eter. It must be noted that t he keypad layouts in Figure 5 only serves as an illustration others may differ from it. The display module is used in conjunction with the keypad above to echo each key value as it was entered. The LCD also echoes instructions, transaction acknowledgement s and errors generated by the remote server. 4.1.4 The Serial Peripheral Interface The microcontroller links with the Ethernet Controller via t he SPI bus. SPI is a four-wire synchronous serial bus protocol developed by Motorola and integrated in many of their microcontrollers.

SPI bus consists of four signals: master out slave in (MOSI), master in slave out (MISO), serial clock (SCK), and active lo w slave (or chip) select (SS). With SPI the maximum number of devices that the master c an connect to is limited by main microcontroller’s available pins. The Arduino Ethernet shield connects to the Arduino Uno using an SPI interface via the In Circuit Serial Programmer (ICSP) header as shown in Figure 4. The shield module and the Uno have the same number of pins and headers thus it fits directly on top of the Uno as shown in Figure 6. The Magnetics part is made up of a transformer, an RJ-45 socket and link establ ishment LEDs thus the meshing of the Arduino to Ethernet shield completes the hardware stack in Figure 3. 4.2 System Software Architecture and Comp onents The software architecture closely follows the protocol stack model shown in Figure 3 illustrated by the W5100 block diagram. The application at the top can be viewed as the Arduino microcontrolle r system’s data, for example bet number entries, which it A sketch is written and compiled (or verified in Arduino language) to check for any syntax errors and uploaded onto the Arduino board t o run. One very useful IDE tool is the Serial monitor which print out the Arduino board’s output on the screen, this can be used for debugging by example embedding some printing routine at some point within a loop to verify that it execut es. The anatomy of a sketch is in three parts namely the declaration of variables and constants; then two functions namely set up () and loop() function. During program execution the setup() runs once during start up or upon reset then the loop() foll ows and runs for as long as the Arduino is powered on. The HAL is basically a class that has been prewritten with the generic features for Arduino hardware accessories to ease the process of interfacing the hardware to the Arduino platform. In this project four libraries were used and these are briefly described below.

4.2.2 The Keypad.h Library Th e Keypad.h library contains the keypad’s generic key layout description in terms of rows and columns. The user must con sult the manufacturer’s information about the key - to - pin mapping or test it with an ohmmeter. The developer programmatically maps the keypad pins to the Arduino digital pins as inputs. Its configuration includes the number of characters columns and rows; the bit mode, that is t he number of da ta pins whether 4-bit or 8-bit. In this project it is used to transfer HTTP-bound data from the Arduino (master) to the W5100 Ethernet controller which is the slave. After identification the four row pin s were connected to the Arduino digital pins 8,7,6,5 and the three c olumns to pins 4, 3 and 2. The Keypad.h library described in 4.3.1 above was imported to the IDE Arduino sketch a nd the IDE’s Serial.print() used to output any key press on the monitor window.In this research the system analysed the content of a successful request otherwise displayed an error and a retry message giving the user two more chances. (Tabl e 1 provides a list of messages). To test the system users were given a piece of paper with a copy of the token number and asked to place a bet, the system responded well and upon success users received an acknowledgement SMS on their mobile phones. The system tes t scenario was further extended to scores of high school students during the university open Day and proved quite popular with a virtual queue forming up as more students learnt about it. The downside was that some of the acknowledgements SMSes were delivered days after the bets. 7 RESULTS In order to verify that the system was running according to specification tests were undertaken. Hardware test s were carried out to ensu re that the system deli vered the appropriate responses from the server as shown on the table below. Erroneous entries were also made to the system to carry out li mited stress testing.
