How can I bet during the day when I’m at work?

This is a question I get asked regularly form punters. I can fully appreciate that many punters have full time jobs, so we are going to cover a few options available to get those bets on, such as…

  • The use of betting bots
  • Telephone accounts
  • Betfair on your mobile

The Use of Betting Bots

This subject is rather vast and we can by know means cover everything in this article. You can take a look at some of the more obvious points to consider if you are thinking of buying and using a bot, in…“How To Automate Your Betting”

Betfair Telephone accounts

Betfair have a Telephone Betting service that is renowned as one of the best in the betting industry. Brokers are on hand 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to place bets on your behalf. If you want to use this service please phone 1800 759 354 and quote your Telephone Account Number (TAN).

Once you have set up a telephone account, choose your selected bets and then simply call Betfair to get on.

Betfair on your mobile

To use Betfair on your mobile phone – Visit, they provide everything you need to get started. It’s not complicated but best to read all the info first. Everything you need is there, including…

  • Easy to set up and use
  • Keep on betting wherever you are

  • Compatibility guide
  • All the benefits of of Betfair – Including in-play betting

There’s always a way – Other betting options

If you do work in the day don’t worry, there are also plenty of other options available besides  the ones above…

  1. Bet on Saturdays, implementing early morning race analysis so it doesn’t interrupt the rest of the day. Saturdays are very competitive making them ideal lay territory. There are some people who make a decent first or second income just betting on Saturdays.
  2. Analyze races on the Racing Post web site the night before, and lay early morning before going to work.
  3. Just bet on the evening races, there are generally 2 to 3 a day for around 4 months of the flat season. Also Look out for floodlit All Weather meetings in the winter

Contrary to popular belief “You don’t have to bet everyday to make regular profits” In fact the best results are obtained by betting only when suitable opportunities arise. Betting for the sake of it, or regretting not having a bet is a losing mentality there is racing 7 days a week in the UK. You can base your betting around your own personal circumstances. Having patience really does pay dividends in the long run.

Far too many punters have totally unrealistic expectations from their betting activities and expect to win tons of cash placing a few lucky bets or by simply backing or laying everything. It’s no surprise really why they lose most of the time – “Impatience” is one of the 10 deadly betting sins.

Like anything else in life that’s worth doing it’s best to take your time and understand the essentials first. Paper trade once you have consistency in picking losers then move onto small stakes.

Unfortunately plenty of punters bet because they love the buzz of a bet, not because they have identified a selection that dictates a bet must be struck. Some systems give plenty of action whilst other require restraint as selections are few and far between.
