• Hi Guest, The forum will be moving hosts on 26 July and as such will be closed from Midday until the move has completed.
    As we will be with new hosts it may take a while before DNS get updated so it could take while before you can get back on the forum.
    I think it will take at least 4 hours but could easily be 48!

  • Sorry for the ongoing issues that you may have been experiencing whilst using the forum lately

    It really is frustrating when the forum slows down or Server Error 500 pops up.

    Apparently the hosts acknowledge there is a problem.
    Thank you for using our services and sorry for the experienced delay!
    Unfortunately, these errors are due to a higher server load. Our senior department knows about the issue and they are working towards a permanent resolution of the issue, however, I'd advise you to consider using our new cPanel cloud solutions: https://www.tsohost.com/web-hosting

    I will have to investigate what the differences are with what We have know compared to the alternative service they want us to migrate to.
    Keep safe.

Newbie looking for advice on getting a bet placed


Morning all,

I’m a complete newbie to betting, never even bought a lottery ticket!

Looking for some advice on placing a bet that’s pretty out there - a faked death. Tried Sky, Bet365 and William Hill, none of which will give me odds, let alone take the bet. Just keep telling me, ’the Traders won’t give odds’.

I’ve been trying to contact Paddy, but all their contacts are down, (what’s that all about?) and I don’t have or want, Twatter!

Much appreciate if anyone can advise me on a bookie likely to take this bet, please?

Thanks, Silver.


Have you tried 22bet?
The site has been recommended to me for its betting and gaming variants but I have only just started to explore it. If I find anything that might be useful to you, I'll let you know.
The world of bookmakers is very varied and sometimes you don't have time to get to know them all. Many of them look alike and it is necessary to go through them well to find the games and odds that interest you.
Anyway, it's a question of checking them out.
