Any properly convened inquiry into the fair operation of totes would decry rebates.

The idea that rebates are 'paid' by Tabcorp shareholders is complete and utter.

The plundering of the pools by syndicates, effectively having free bets, is completely contrary to the concept of a pari-mutuel pool.

One thing that astounds me is that Tabcorp  itself does not operate a syndicate to rort the pools.

The management and conduct of the Australian racing industry is dedicated to dealing unfairly with most punters.

The only real tote customers are treated as mugs best deprived of their total betting budget as quickly as possible.

Here is Zeljko's NYRA bid.

Talk about an ensemble cast!

O'Farrell is of course the partner that Zeljko bankrupted.

Schreck who killed off the Waterhouses, eulogised and facilitated Alan Woods in HK. And as NSW Chief Steward was supposed to be keeping Zeljko under control.

Zeljko was subjected to an integrity check. But the shamus was unable to find one syllable about the VITAB fraud!

And if too much colour is not enough-

"It may not help that the Governor of New York, Elliot Spitzer, who is initially to assess the proposals, is the same man who as state Attorney-General levelled charges against NYRA officials for allowing overweight jockeys to ride at all three tracks."

And in a move that may be viewed as the shape of things to come - OTB - (off course betting) in New York City closed down in 2010.  Still available in New York state though in other cities.

I questioned the legitimacy of this Twitter account moons ago and this line of thinking was howled down by His Highness in his inimitable holier-than-thou fashion.

My thoughts were backed up by somebody who would know/has weekly contact with the bloke - as opposed to somebody who is infatuated with/stalks said individual.

Would love to be proven wrong though.

What I make from it is that is definitely not him. And it was hilarious Kate McClymont thought it was.

Indubitably.

Or, in his words:


Once more you clearly demonstrate your inability to gauge your opponents.

What part of "indubitably" eludes some of you?

Zeljko's feathers appear ruffled in this intriguing exchange.

Many might consider the article in question as a ripping yarn.

If I enjoyed an edge over my opponents I'd try to keep my trap shut.

And If I was losing out to them I'd also keep quiet. And try to work out what I was doing wrong.

Agree that was the only thing I didn't believe about that story, that the super reclusive genuis would have a Twitter account with his real name and showing an expensive car...

Suppose we should at least be grateful Bubba didn't start a new thread.

Anyway there are some curious things about that photo.

Kirsha appears to be very, very small.

And Zeljko appears to have experienced a belated growth spurt.

Note how the guy on his right is not sitting, but squatting.

Also, I have this suspicion that this apparent expose is actually another arrangement as part of a Zeljko charm offensive to snow those involved with the UK Tote.

An unflattering twitter review of the Colossusbets' numbers.

Cumulative losses of GBP 20 million are not a good look.

Nothing about Kickbacks to Zeljko. They are probably buried in the Cost of Sales bucket.

However there is one fascinating revelation.

Rest of World revenue grew 2 million to nearly double.

But the UK dropped by around the same from 11 million!

That seems to be a very serious situation. It seems the UK punters are voting with their feet. Once revenue drops for such outfits it is almost impossible to ever trend back up.

The video has been challenged for copyright by Zeljko's man servant Bernie Marantelli on Twitter, so here it is on Vimeo :tin:

https://vimeo.com/328933368?ref=tw-share

In other news Colossusbets punters have become increasingly aware of how any decent rollovers keep being improbably shared and therefore diluted. Well a recent change to the company's Terms And Conditions contains this nugget




Basically this covers Zeljko so he can bet into his own pools. The UK Gambling Commission as usual asleep on the job. Whether or not the American regulators will do the same is altogether another matter!

"Zeljko Ranogajec has been part of David Walsh's gambling syndicate that began operating in the 1980s."

Have to love informed investigative journalism.

The mind boggles as to how long a Walsh led syndicate would last.

Man running a Zeljko corporation tweets that he has no need to "cheat" because said corporation is worth "100s of millions". Said corporation is officially insolvent with a negative net worth of £19M. Meanwhile all the rollovers keep vanishing off punter's screens and no-one has any idea who is "winning" them. Definitely worth following this particular account because it is beginning to look like Mr Ranogajec's man has lost the plot  :lol:

Hopefully you can get the whole thread below.

Everybody bar Zeljko betting into a blind pool.

Nothing to see here.

Zeljko's man now claiming that he lobbied against FOBT machines alongside Salvation Army and the Church whilst at the same time launching this charitable effort https://calvinayre.com/2015/09/25/press-releases/colossus-bets-and-core-gaming-launch-partial-cash-out-slot-with-sky-vegas/

Why has Zeljko now got an overdraft for his company? :wacko: Also it looks like there are personal guarantees involved as technically Colossusbets Limited is insolvent :thumbsd:

Why would a billionaire need to mortgage his bank account. Has David Walsh spent all the money on MONA :chin:

Billionaire Zeljko seems to be funding a bunch of social media nincompoops in order to promote his failing Colossusbets. His hapless stooge Bernard Marantelli stumbles from one disaster to another. His latest wheeze being to alienate most of the British greyhound racing community by refusing to pay the voluntary levy, Worth watching his feed @Bernardcolossus for daily fails :p

Anyone had a go at the "Betting and Data Analysis exercises" shown in the Sports-betting quantitative analyst position for Magician? (link below)

Have had a crack; used Excel not the statistical languages; an interesting test, not sure if the data set is from a real set of race results and uses their real calculated "win fair price"?

Too busy with my own modelling to attempt those exercises right now but they look fairly basic, compared to the advanced modelling needed to win these days.

It certainly walks and quacks like one of Zeljko's outfits.

Wonder why his existing 300 Quants aren't up to it.

You'd have to be extremely naive to consider applying.

There seems to be a lot of dead wood there and it would be very depressing busting your hump then watching the fruits of your hard work squandered away on porn museums and incessant first class travel by your demanding taskmasters.

Data is your porn JFC, worth having a look if it is a real data-set and it only took fifteen minutes to complete and analyse in Excel.

The Win SP market percent varies around 100% but averages overall 100.00% which might indicate it is fictitious, surprisingly to me the advantage is only tiny if my calcs are correct?

74,249 bets greater than $2 and all the profit from these is wiped out by just 25 Lay bets where their "win fair price (WFP)" is calculated to be less than or equal to $1.25; after capping the max lay to the bank of $10k.

Convert any Lay bets where their WFP is less than $1.25 to a Back bet and the "project" improves considerably.
