Lay bets

if you’re using exchanges like Betfair, Betdaq or our new favourite Smarkets, you’ll be happy to know that we’ve added for laying bets att Bettin.gs.

To do this, you simply enter the same information about the event you’re betting on, but before you press “Add this bet”, select Lay in the Type drop down and you’re done.

Lay bets, or betting against an outcome, uses another calculation for ROI and of course another way of calculating the result. That’s nothing you need to worry about though, since it still all is done automatically once you settle or update a bet.

This feature will be eventually be available for Pro users only, but it’s open to everyone for a few days to let you try it out.

Good luck with your trades and let us know how it works out for you! 

Hall of Fame

After using Bettin.gs for a while, improving your numbers and stats, perhaps overheard someone’s stats or ROI on Twitter or found a user to follow, I bet you’re wondering how you stack up compared to other users or wondering who the top users at the moment are.

Well, wonder no more. Last week we released the brand new Hall of Fame section, listing the most successful users (i.e. the ones with the highest ROI) in one place. The Hall of Fame is divided into top users of all time and from last month respectively, to help you find who’s succeeding over time and who’s hot right now.

Here’s how it looks:

As you see, the top 5 user are listed, with the possibility to dive deeper into the top 25 list. Stats for each user are listed together with a link to their full profile and all bets.

Why not have a look and see if you find a user worth following or see where you’ve placed at the moment. Find out now →

Top users for last week and the possibility to only show active users are coming shortly.

Fractional odds

While the most common way to enter and display odds, at least on Bettin.gs, is in the decimal format (like 3.5), many people prefer the fractional way (like 5/2).

Good news is, from today you can choose your preferred way yourself. If you want to switch to show odds in fractional format, head to your Settings page and look for this setting.

Once you’ve pressed save, all odds on the site will be shown in the selected format. By the way, you can enter the odds in any format you like, but how they will be displayed is decided by this setting.

Enjoy this little update!

Commission for bookies

Many of you are placing your bets on betting exchanges such as Betfair and Betdaq and, as you know, they are charging commission for your winning bets. This commission is now possible to take into account at Bettin.gs.

From today, you have the option to enter the commission you pay at the different exchanges on the settings page, in percent. The commission you enter will automatically be deducted from from the bets you win using that particular bookie and will therefore affect both your result and stats to show more realistic numbers.

If the commission you pay changes for a bookie, just change it on the settings page and all future bets you place at that bookie will use the new percentage in the calculations. Older bets already settled will not be affected.

Regular bookies normally don’t charge commission, and in that case commission is set to 0, which is also the default value.

This feature is available for all Bettin.gs Pro use as we speak. Enjoy!

Default tweets

If you’ve connected your Twitter account to your profile, chances are you’ve also selected to share your bets automatically. It’s by far the easiet way of letting your friends and followers know about your bet.

By default, all tweets look the same, showing the bet you placed, what game it is about with the stake, odds and of course a link to the bet:

Good news is, we just made this even better. You can now start all tweets with your own little message, as well as select to include your tags from the bet you’re sharing. That means a tweet could look something like this:

You find the settings for this at your Settings page. It’s available for all Bettin.gs Pro users as we speak.

Advanced stats filters

As you’re using Bettin.gs you’ll probably notice the value of tags. We’ve written about the advantages of using it before, and now it’s just gotten even better.

Let’s for example assume that you’re using one tag for all bets you place in a country, say Russia, and another one for all football bets you place in Premier League. The #russia tag would represent all bets in all sports in Russia and #premierleague would represent all bets placed in the Premier League – that could mean English Premier League as well as the Russian.

Now you can select to filter out all placed in Russian events which would include all sports (unless you’ve used the Sport filter) having that precise tag. Adding the #premierleague tag would filter out all bets in the Russian Premier League and should you use only the #premierleague tag, naturally all bets from both Russian and English Premier League would be shown.

Combining this and the other available filters provides the perfect mechanism to find the exact stats you’re looking for.

Another example: Using tags, you can select to filter out all tennis bets ever placed, or you can filter down on all tennis bets you’ve placed on #WTA tour, the #ATP tour or for all #doubles. Should you want to know how a certain tipster performs on #singles vs #doubles, just apply the approprate filter and select the tipster from The Tipster drop-down. To know how your bets went in the latest Tennis mens tournament in China, filter on #ATP, #china and #singles together with the Sport and Date filter.

I’m sure you get the point, and you probably have your very own way of organising your bets into categories. With this latest update it will be even more powerful to apply to your stats!

We are sure you all will find your own way of using this. As always, shoud there be any questions, just hit us with them.

Good luck, and enjoy!
