  • The £10 to £10000 challenge

    Some of you may have seen this before. I did it a few years ago and even though I only made it to £50, it was quite fun!

    The rules are very simple:
    • Each day you should try to place a bet with the odds around 1/10
    • You always bet 100% of your winnings


    Feel free to join in yourself or give suggestions for future days!
    I'll restart if I fail early on :babyrage:

    Day 1 bet placed:

    Ajax have been pretty solid at home this season and Lyon have been very inconsistent. Lyon have to win by 2 or more goals for me to lose this!

        Yeah when I did it before, I did a mix of Football and Tennis.
        It ended when I had Porto to win/draw at home to some crappy team and they lost for the first time in 4 seasons :feelsbadman:

              Someone's gonna be so mad when almost at 10k and then losing it all on some 1.1 odds bet

              Hockey ain't the best sport for this as it's quite unpredictable at times, but whatever, I'll put my 10€ on there being under 7.5 goals in tonight's game between Pittsburgh and Washington at 1.17 (I'll just assume anything under 1.2 is fine). Pittsburghs best forward got injured in the last match and will miss this one. Washington has one of the best goalies in the game, and the Pittsburgh goalie has been on fire in the playoffs so far as well. Don't see this being a high scoring game at all, though knowing my luck I'll probably fück up on the first one

              Tirath, is it just one bet per day? Or can I place another bet on the same day if there's enough time?

                I didn't know about that and started yesterday

                2 bets.
                1) A goal to be scored till 80:00 minute at match Monaco-Juventus.
                2) Under 3.5 goals in that match (I placed that bet at 40 minute at live betting )

                  I think it's meant to be one per day, but I don't see a problem with you doing more than one bet on some days as other days there may be nothing suitable to bet on

                    My bet for day 2. I can't see United losing by more than 1 goal...

                      South African league: Mamelodi Sundowns to beat Platinum Stars, DNB so money back if it's a draw. Odds 1.11

                      Mamelodi are 2nd in the league and while they lost their last game, that was just a 1-0 loss against the league leaders. Before that, they had won 5 in a row without conceding a single goal in those games. Platinum Stars haven't won a league game in almost a month, and have scored just 1 goal in their last 4 games combined, so I don't think they stand much of a chance to win this one.

                      11.70€ to win 12.99€
