I have a new website at http://www.puntingform.com.au
. I'll try not to spam about it too much, rather I'd prefer to share some of the blog articles and industry info we will be posting with the community here. One of our early blogs was on the deductions, commissions and limits that are in play at the major totes and bookies:
Every punter should be aware of the deductions and commissions that the major totalisers take out of our punting pools. I was very surprised at the level of deductions the TABs claim on some of their exotics. If a Big 6 isnít hard enough to get in the first place, punters only get 75% of the pool returned. This is criminal! Check out the comparisons below and make up your own mind on where the value lies:
It was pretty surprising how hard it was to find this information. It's not something any phone operator was able to tell me and it's not like the information was easy to find and access on the tote websites. Luckily they all have to present terms and conditions so I found the information buried in PDF files that weren't searchable on the sites or indexed by Google.

where we delve into some of the limitations that the major bookmakers place on their "best tote" products.
