I want to start by telling you a quick story that highlights why organisation is so useful. About one year ago I was taking advantage of a lot of sports betting free offers in quick succession. I went through probably six in under two weeks. It was great, the money was pouring in £25 here £50 there.
I was pretty new to online gambling in those days and didn’t really care 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 m-918kiss.com. 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 signed up to. It turned out that I had deposited £50 there and just forgot about it. Although £50 doesn’t sound like much money if I had done this several times 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 winnings 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 reconsider my attitude towards keeping records. Now I keep track of the date I join a site, the name of the site, the amount deposited, the odds staked and laid (if I am matched betting), the net profit and the details of any cashback I have received.
One benefit of this is that I had never considered before is that occasionally the bookie can make a mistake in your payout. I had never even checked before I started keeping records of my transactions. It also guarantees that you will never forget a deposit that you have made and any cashback owed to you can be chased up if it is not awarded.
