First, let us address a few commonly asked questions.
- Do I need to autoload any markets?
No. The uploads which we will send directly to your BF Bot will have all the information required. There is nothing for you to do, or any additional rules that you need to set
2. How does the live scores get tracked
From version 3.1.12 bot will automatically get live scores, match information and historical results from our server that gets data from third party service. This means that all users of v3.1.12 or higher version will automatically have this information in their bots when they load football markets! This information does not include in play statistics.
For a more detailed explanation of live scores and other match data, please read this article:
3. How reliable is the Bot – anything that I should know?
This is an important question and there are some key implications of using a bot that you need to understand and accept before entering the market with real money.
Firstly, there is no software or bot that is 100% reliable, as they all depend on information provided to them and if that information is invalid or not provided then bot may not do its job properly on that particular occasion.
There can be many problems that can prevent bot from placing bets, like:
1. failed live data streams at Betfair or football live score providers
2. suspended market because Betfair does not have live coverage of event
3. server errors
4. network connection issues
5. market offer is bad as market makers decided not to manage that match e.g. people that offer generic prices at all markets, they simply did not use their bots to make offer on that market during in play
6. many other issues that we cannot think now but happen rarely
It is important that you understand and accept these realities. We can provide no guarantees on performance of the betting bot, nor accept any liability.
