Alot of online bookmakers are now restricting bets from certain customers to reduce their liability, making it hard for the punter to get their bet on at the right odds.
The idea is to produce a desktop (and possibly mobile) application that will allow the user to split a bet and place it with multiple bookmakers at the same time. (instead of 1 bet of £200 they place 10 bets of £20)
The application will need to display best odds from multiple bookmakers (probably 20 to start with), most bookmakers have an xml with live prices on, if not it will have to scrape the html for the prices.
When the application opens it will need to log in to the customers online accounts automatically and check and retrieve their balance (if possible)
The initial system will be limited to UK horse racing, with other sports being added at a later date.
There will be a drop down box to select meeting and time of race, the top 10 best odds will then be displayed, the user simply needs to select a horse and then enter the stake and the lowest odds to accept, the application will then split the bet and place it with up to 10 bookmakers.
There should be a settings section whereby the user can enter details of their online accounts (username & password etc) and also how many times to split the bet, maximum bet amount per account etc.
Initially I propose to offer this application free of charge, I will make the money via affiliate accounts, which I already have.
I know there are alot of developers who have already played around with this sort of thing, I also know that this is no easy task, so please only bid if you fully understand online sports betting.
There is only a budget of $750 for this project, however I am happy to give 25% of all net profits for the life of the software, which will be used to keep any scraping up to date as the bookmakers change their sites quite often.
Once again please only bid if you are serious and have a long term commitment.
