So, as the title suggests, what are the swindles (if any) you've pulled in the bookies? 1/ Maybe 15 years ago when the FOBTs started me and a few others in a local bookie used to play the computer roulette that much that we knew the spins and what it was going to land on after the ball started. So we would put a max bet on, and if it wasnt a winning number we would pull the plug out the wall and say the game crashed, and the cashier would give us our money back. We were rugular losers in there, but when I look back on it the cashier(s) must have known what was going on!! we wasnt exactly discreet.. Also on another occasion we cut a bit off the front of the FOBT next to the screen, so we could put our hand inside, and when someone puts a note in we could catch it before it went down into the tray below. We opnly did this once before we was rumbled. again, discretion wasnt our strong point! 2/ I had a mate who used to get up 20 player accas on the tennis every other week! he used to put like 60p on 20 players, 17 of them had already won and 3 heavy odds on shots and watch them come in. The cashier checked the results every time and saw they won and paid him out. I think he kept this going so long because he only ever used to do it to get paid about 70-80 quid! 3/ I had a bet on 2 teams in the Euros once, was like a Sweden and Italy double at about 2/1 or something, anyway they both lost, but they both played again 3 days later and both won! I took the ticket back to the cashier, they checked the results and saw they won and paid me out! I actually think it was about a 7/2 double in the end! These are a few I can remember, but are at least 10+ years old in my slightly younger days. Be interesting to heart about any others that people used to do!
