    Turning £10 into £1000 (1/10) Challenge

    Some of us may have heard of this before :cool:

    I am going to try turning £10 into £1000 by using mainly 1/10 shots. If I use 1/10 shots it will take 48 winning 1/10 shots before I get my grand. It doesn't have to be 1/10 can be (1/8,1/9, 1/11, 1,12) (going draw the line below and above these)

    So £10.00 > 1/10= £11
    £11 > 1/10 = £12.10 and so on.

    Going start on Monday, Open a new account and only stick £10 in it.
    Doing all sports, In football double chance and over 0.5 goals will be my main picks.

    Only thing you have remember is that your only betting a tenner when it gets to the stage of £602.31 at 1/10, You need balls and luck :D
    Lets hope it gets to the stage and doesn't end on day2 :(

    Anyone else willing to give it ago?

    I'll post all bets below (Starting Monday) >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

    (Live in Play)
    Queen's Park v Clyde (Under 3.5 Goals) 1/9 Win

    Slovan Bratislava v Red Bull Salzburg
    Salzburg/Draw Double chance 1/7 Win

    Fulham v Odense BK

    Double chance is betting on a Draw/Win in favour of the team picked.

    i.e

    Chelsea V Man Utd

    A bet on Man Utd Double Chance, pays out if they win or it's a draw....

    You get much shorter odds, but would be good for this type of betting system :p

    Would be a great one if you could do it, but at least once a week a sure shot will go down, most of your luck will be avoiding this - I know it takes some of the fun out of it but if you built some sort of a safety system in there it could help reduce the risk a little... maybe halfing your stake and doing say:

    First & second bet would be - 2 x 5 euro (1/10 shots, on different games of course),
    => return if both came up would still be 11 (5.50 per game)
    3rd & 4th bet bets would be - 2 x 5.50
    => 12.10 (6.05 per game)

    and so on... effectively if a game lets you down you half your bank and start again.... a bit of a snakes and ladders system but at least there'd be a safety plan allowing you to drop one bet every once in a while - might take twice as long to reach your target but your risk is halved and you'd have double the chance of getting there...

    The over 0.5 goals would be a handy enough bet to get up each month. Think I'll give this a lash for the crack. Will start on Saturday I think .

    Did something similar with Daz and another couple of lads a few years back, the plan was to place one even money bet each month for 12 months starting with €50. took us a couple of starts but we did well but once we got a couple of grand up we ended up splitting it and not throwing it all on the next bet or rather than one even money bet we'd do two odds on bets etc. Great banter discussing what bets to stick on.
