Fire or Kill system

The software operates a ‘fire or kill’ system. This means a bet will only be submitted if the full amount can be matched. If it can’t then the bet won’t be placed, a message will come up saying no liquidity.

If this happens, open the info button and go directly over to Smarkets and place your bets.

Betfair can stick their 5% commission where the sun don’t shine hahaha

Thank you for adding this Michael.

I hope you don’t mind me asking. What is the benefit for Smarkets in this deal, how are they going to make money?

Hi Richard,

1) It gives them exposure to a large amount of people who are going to be interested in using their platform long term. The exchange market is saturated already.

They won’t be making any money in the short term. Long term it will be a winner for them.

2) Smarkets will still have users who aren’t PMers paying full commission. This includes market makers.

3) I’ve read an article that it’s their long term goal to offer all recreational users 0% commission. Read more here

Keeps saying “Smarkets Place Bet Error. Bet isn’t Placed”.

That means the odds have changed. Try using it on football were the odds are a lot more stable.


I have the full mastermind package—when I go into the matched betting page then select Smarkets when I bring up the bet pop up there is no place bet option

Hi John,

Clear your browser cache and you will see the option.

Hi Mike,
I have the full Mastermind package to but use mobile 99% of the time. I’ve cleared cache and cookies but no green bet button. Do I have to do this through laptop 1St?

Stephen Lacey.

Hi Stephen,

On your mobile browser, select use desktop website. Then you will see the place bet button. You only need to place one bet per month through the software to stay opted in. After that you can bet directly on Smarkets website.

Hi Mike,

Just watched your training video and I cannot filter the options as per your example as I do not have drop downs on Oddsmatching – just an up/down arrow. I use both Google and IE.

Good work for this!! Appreciated 🙂

Hi Mike,does every bet need to be placed through the mb software to qualify? Wondered if it’s possible to have 0% for the price boosts that appear on the Facebook feed too?

Hi Mark, You can place bets on Smarkets directly and still get 0%. Make sure you place at least 1 bet per month via the software to stay opted in.

Can this only be used to place lay bets.

Hi Martin, It applies to both back & lay bets.

How is the commission levied? In the case of Betfair’s 5% charge, if you’re trying to win £500 and make £10-12 profit margin, is it levied on the £500 (sharp intake of breath!), or just the £10-£12?

Hi Andrew, You pay commission on the profit only. In your example, it would be the £10 – £12.
