Betiquette’s smashing set of tips – Part 1

On your app

The man with Betiquette knows his app from his elbow. He’s never fooled by tricky T&Cs or those mosquito-like bonus bet alerts and notifications. When he’s tempted to stray from his betting plan, he refers to our ‘smashing set of tips’ and sends his uncontrolled impulses packing.

Betiquette Tip #1

Set a cash limit

Set a cash limit on your betting app and stick to it. Never dip into the ‘Cruiz’n Croatia’ account - otherwise your dreams may raise anchor and sail away before your very eyes.

Betiquette Tip #2

Know your bet

A man with Betiquette never bets on badminton to recoup his losses.

Betiquette Tip #3

Read the T&Cs

If you have chosen to use an app for your punters club, never gamble with neglecting the T&C’s. Gambling is always best directed at the sporting events themselves.

Betiquette Tip #4

Keep it local

Never punt with some exotic bookie in Barbados - you don’t speak Barbados-ian, do you?

If you’re up for a punt, bet with a bookie licensed in Australia. Because when an Aussie bookie bamboozles an Aussie bloke, the likes of the ACCC and gaming regulators can intervene and help save your bacon. Oink oink!

Betiquette Tip #5

Switch off notifications

Outsmart your smart phone and never let some pushy push notification push you around.

Betiquette Tip #6

Stay focused

Don’t let yourself randomly bounce like a ping-pong ball from bet to bet. Get your head out of your digital app and take some time out, in the analogue world!

Out and About

The man with Betiquette doesn’t just punt with a plan when he’s online. He is just as calculated when he’s punting in the old fashioned way, in the real world.

Betiquette Tip #7

Be in the moment

As a betting bloke, you’re always looking to increase your chances of getting lucky, which is why you should always pay attention to your date - not your multi.

Betiquette Tip #8

Never get intimidated by your mate’s bet

Just because your mate’s bet is bigger, doesn’t mean it’s going to get up. Stand firm without feeling the pressure to increase your own.

Betiquette Tip #9

Leave your cards at home

Here’s a red-hot tip. When heading to the pub for punt, try only taking the cash that you can afford to lose. Your great-great-grandfather didn’t need a plastic card to bet. Plastic wasn’t even invented then.

Betiquette Tip #10

Walk away

When you reach your cash limit, don’t chase your losses. Bid your mates farewell. The only thing you should be chasing after a night of revelry is an intimate conversation, with a kebab!
