Hi sportsmad1
Not me but only because I've never got around to it.  I use Sportingbet, and three tabs (QLD, NSW and ACT whick is linked into SuperTab). One day.

I have a account with them but hardly ever use it.

Just doesn't suit me as I'm mostly a minimum bet punter.

I use Betfair exclusively. I like the odds & I like laying (some) hot favourites. It's great when you back high then lay low for a win/win situation (called all-green on Betfair). I only bet small because I know I cannot win in the long run.

As a win only punter I made the decision to use it exclusively since the end of the Spring Carnival despite the high minimum bet - the fact is it will provide the best price in 99% of occassions and thats just the starting price (many runners will often have I higher fluc).

I also use it for trading sports. IMHO it is (perhaps apart from flexi betting) the greatest invention in the history of wagering.

A must use for any punter.

The official minimum is $6 but you can get around that easily enough.

$5 Aussie either way.

So to bet -$5
To Lay - $5 x (1 - odds) - so laying a $4 shot will require you to put $15 down.

Place a bet for $5 at a price that won't be matched.

Change amount to what you want to outlay + $5 (so if you want to bet $3, change to $8)

Delete $5 bet then lower amount on the $3 bet  ;)

I use it almost exclusively and see no reason why any serious punter wouldn't use it, especially for all win betting and sports betting.

I occassionally go fishing on it such as today I have asked for $1.70 the place on these two.

If no one takes them , that's OK , and whatever happens, happens.
