Coral shop sweep 16.83-went to pick up my Spain ‘winnings’ from the local and found I’d won the sweep, a £20 freebet-I was more excited at that-proudly announcing that it had made my day. The shop staff looked rather quizzically as I simply stuffed the £400 quid in my pocket from the Spain win (which actually made a loss)..ahem, kinda gave the game away.
Betway spain 175.70-mugged the refund and made nice amount, placing small bets on everything that moved above certain odds.

Total: £1,155.29

YTD: £15,956.84

MTH AVE: £2,279.55

In truth a slow month helped by concluding offers from the Euros, Moneybookers cashback and the Federer Wimbledon refunds.

Still a healthy return on time invested, and already through my year target of 15k. August brings Goodwood, more MLB and the return of football (and City reclaiming the league title ).

During slow periods I often wonder where all the money was made but hopefully things will pick up with the new month.

I should add that after making a complete idiot of myself on Saturday night that I shall be focusing more on monetary matters for the time being!
