The 10 Grand at 4/9 punters are usually OK.

 

The ones they don't like are the chancers who regularly nick the each way money!! (£300 - £500 e/w @ 9/2+ almost every day)

Our R I master (sanctimonious old humbug) used to preach and screech about the evils of gambling, which made me inclined to take up bookmaking as a career.

 

By contrast our maths master, after our final School Cert exams (yes I pre-date GCEs) spent the last few maths lessons of our school careers taking us through the mathematics of making a book. That nearly convinced me to become a bookie - and stopped me from ever becoming a punter !

I've pulled forward my post of two years ago.    If I had followed my schoolboy whim and become a bookie, I might well have become a billionaire like Denise  and left the day to day running of the betting shops to underlings whilst enjoying the proceeds.  I could have afforded many more trips abroad after exotic species, more salmon fishing,  my own marlin boat and luxury back-up etc etc..  - and as a result of the life-style that went with it,  probably died of a stroke in my fifties - or not - as Chesters might put it.

 

The amount of money spent by betting firms on advertisements during televised sport programs is an indication of how lucrative a business bookmaking is.
