I had Rochina but as he didn't play you should get your money back.

lost £2 on us to win (at 11/1 after 40mins it seemed worthwhile)

With William Hill, If you have a player to score 2 and they don't score you get your stake back.

this was on skybet - not sure if they'd do that.

edit: i have been refunded - nice touch.

My accumulator won me £15.72 (wins for Burnley, Leicester, Millwall, Soton, Reading)

Any you class that as nothing?!?!

I would be cheering like mad!!

I always do 4 draw accumulaters for a quid and the odds are about 100/1. The most I've had is 3. :(

Everytime I make accumulators they come out at ~29000/1, look great on paper and are ready for the bin before half time.

didnt realise that many people gamble on football, I think I had a brief go about 8 years ago, and like Theo said, i had accumulators coming out at 6000/1 so a well placed £5 would see me well off for a while, and it just appeared i couldnt fail! but did everytime!!

Does make a game like Gillingham vs Northampton a hell of a lot more intersting to follow knowing you had money riding on it!

I won't bet unless I happen to be spending a saturday in the pub... last time I lost about £10 on my betting slip, but I made about £20 betting on rubbish with my mates.

£1 there is a throw in in the next 3 minutes
£2 the next scorer is for the away team

etc.
