Reviews for Automatic Exchange Betting
Automatic Exchange Betting is an invaluable resource for those
wishing to learn about automating Betfair transactions. I write as a
professional gambler specialising in football markets, and prior to
reading the book, had never written a line of code in my life. Within
two weeks, I had several automatic betting programs (bots)
up-and-running, all pieced together from the sample code. I have
subsequently automated a huge amount of my betting strategies, and have
significantly increased my profits. For the intelligent bettor wishing
to improve their efficiency and profitability, the book is an essential

A comprehensive guide to using the Betfair API in order to create and implement automated strategies
— Tom Johnson, Head of API Product Development, Betfair
An excellent description of the entire process of placing automated
bets, at a sufficiently high technical level to be useful in
practice, while straightforward enough to be understood by people
with only a modicum of programming knowledge.

Great book! Many new ideas, software solutions and examples – even
for every little detail. I am completely satisfied with my purchase!
Up to now, there hasn’t been a book aimed specifically at punters
who want to use their computers as part of the betting process, but
Colin Magee has filled the gap

I’ve just finished reading your book “Automatic Exchange Betting” and you’ve confirmed that the impossible is indeed possible.

Let’s face it. There are very few books about gambling that give information that isn’t already available in the public domain. Many are a complete waste of money. I guess it’s not hard to work out why. If someone makes a big effort and goes through financial sacrifice to develop methods to make money out of gambling the last thing they are going to do is share them!
This is why Colin Magee’s book is such a revelation. It provides the mechanics of automated betting in such a way that most people can make use of it. Colin has obviously worked very hard to accumulate all his knowledge and techniques, yet seems very happy to share it. It’s true to say that to make the best out of it you need to come up with your own theories to gain an edge, but this books gives you the means to put them into practice.
I would recommend this book to anyone who is interested in exploring
the concept of gambling as an investment rather than a thrill

Just returned from a week in Spain relaxing on the beach…. I took a

just wanted to write to you to congratulate you on a well written and

The author also gives information about betting in general, more from
an algo point of view, and if you have never heard about this, you can
find a nice introduction and ideas
