Sports betting recap - October 2013

Total balance of betting accounts in October: -49.74%

As I feared, last month I had to take big risks to fulfil turnover rules related to past betting bonus offer. It turns out I was able to save only a small portion of the cash involved. This shows in the disastrous October result.

After this episode, I've taken a deserved break from betting. I've been quite busy with other things lately and therefore unable to reserve enough time to analyse the bets properly. I'm taking some work related courses and overall, autumn is not the greatest time in Finland. Rain, cloudy days and darkness take their toll. Thus, the break has been longer than I expected.

What comes to Finnish indie game front, Clash of Clans was released for Android. I actually downloaded the game just the day before the big Supercell deal was announced. My village is growing steadily and I find the game mechanics well fitting to casual gaming. There are many strategic elements to master as you basically get to play in both sides of the tower defense. Building projects are now getting longer, so the game not require as much attention as it did in the beginning. I'm not sure if this is a good or a bad thing.

While writing about PS4, I happened to mention my Pile of Shame, from which I was able to finish one game this month. Perhaps it would actually be worth blogging when I manage to finish a game. That doesn't happen too often, but I'll consider the idea - I have some serious classics in that pile. I tend to do a bit of web search on my writing topics and thus found a couple of good articles about how to tackle the Pile of Shame. Enjoy.


  1. Online sports betting is useful for everyone these days. We make this statement because today you can bet safely on sports through the online sports betting websites which are available online. There were many cases of fraud related to Sports betting in the earlier days because people used to bet on sports through the local sports bookies. But today, there are no such cases as things are safe and trustworthy today.

  2. Follow the famous saying, “Haste makes waste”. You shall follow all the ways in order to filter out the bad and the fraud websites. Check out the community pages and groups related to online sports betting. Make sure that you go through enough reviews before signing up with any Sports betting website. Also make sure to read reviews and get an idea about the reputation of the websites through the conversation and the threads.

  3. Thanks for your comments. In this case the betting site has a good reputation and I think it was mostly my mistake to not read the bonus offer terms carefully enough. This is also why I don't mention the name of the bookie.

  4. Sports betting is gaining popularity day by day on the web. About a decade ago, when there were no sports betting websites available on the web, the interested bettors had to go out and find certain sports bookies who would help them to bet on their favorite sports. Some of these sports bookies also had personal fee. It is a wearisome thing to tackle with the sports bookies and moreover, you could never trust these sports bookies. So, in other words, the bettors could never assume their money to be safe.
