Our Team

Andrew Heaford

Site Manager

Andy has been involved in the online gambling industry since the beginning and has seen massive changes in the twenty years he has been taking part. Originally drawn in by the “Bonus Boom” at the beginning of the Century he went on over the years to gamble on every sport and at virtually every sports betting site licenced in the UK, always in the search of “value”. These days restricted to getting bets on at the exchanges for the most part he still keeps his hand in but spends more time focused on sharing his knowledge and experiences with us and our readers.

  • Favourite sport: To watch it would be Football if Norwich City FC are playing. To play would be pool, petanque or chess. To bet on, well my turnover is probably the highest on Horse racing but it is not a favourite as it is not actually fun, it just makes me money. My favourite sport to bet on for fun is Darts. You get some crazy swings and there is a lot more maths involved in the scoring than people give credit for.
  • Biggest win: Odds wise I think it was Donald Trump to win the 2016 US election when he first announced he was running, I got 100/1 and wish I had bet more than a fiver! For actual winnings, it was when I ran a syndicate for the UK Tote Scoop6 when the bonus race was up to £500k. We won the preliminary race first attempt and that afternoon I had about £83k credited to my Betfair account, the highest amount it has ever been. (We lost the bonus race though).
