My project involves Sport Betting.
I receive sport betting tips in my email.
The following process had to be automatic:
- See the tip in gmail (its a text)
- Search for the best odds ([url removed, login to view] or each individual bookmaker - whatever is faster -)
- Place the bet in the bookmaker (pinnaclesports , sbobet , 12bet , 188bet )
- The bet should not be placed if the odds are under certain number (that is specified in the email tip)
- All this process has to be as fast as possible. The tips comes trough email at different times everyday, so the bot has to check every few seconds.
What i set up:
- Ammount of money of the bet (has to be pre-set, and not everytime the bot bets)
- Login and passwords for all websites
What could go wrong:
- The ammount of bet is higher than the bookmaker accepts. In this case, the bot has to place the maximum bet thats allowed; re-search the best odds, and do a second (or how many necessary) bet.
- The bet is not place due to recent change of the odds. In this case, the bot has to repeat the process (search the odds and place the bet)
- The name of the team can be different in the email and the bookmaker and oddsportal. Example: Turin and Torino. Bot must identify and place the bet correctly.
- The name of the competion can be different in the email and the bookmaker and oddsportal. Example: The tip may say that the game is a "Friendly", while the bookmaker may list under "Spain - Manga Cup".
- Some websites (such as sbobet) may have a captcha to fill at every login.
