BOT execution

Hi Guys,


I have a dutch bot that I would like to execute automatically for all the races that I have selected today. I would like the Dutch bot to fire 3 mins before each race. I have started the BOT executor but am scratching my head regarding the settings...can anybody enlighten??

    I created short video showing how to use Bot Executor. It is actually quite simple:


    You have to create your bot settings in “Bots to Execute” adding your dutch bot. You can configure many different settings of your dutch bot, not just one like in my example, I named my bot setting: My Horse Racing Dutch Strategy.

    When creating more setting for the same bot, it is a good idea to name it appropriately, so by name you can distinguish among different bot settings.


    You want to execute your bot on some markets, and markets are browsed in Event Browser. As you can see in my video I created my favorite events, in Navigation view. You should created you filter for horse racing at least, so whenever you open bfexplorer you will have Horse Racing in Navigation list, otherwise you will have to click on “Upcoming in-play events”, and then in Event Browser on Horse Racing, but this default settings shows all horse racing win markets from all countries.

    In my video I show what you should set in “My Bet Event” dialog.


    So now you have got horse racing win markets from GB and IE in your “Event Browser”, and you want to execute your bot on all markets or on manually selected ones.

    Select at least one market, so “Execute in Order / Bot Executor” icon is active, now you can click on that icon and “Open in Order / Bot Executor” dialog appears, here you select your bot you want to execute and set: “Start execution time”. This time is relative time span from official market start time, the race off time in your case. You want 3 minutes, so you set -00:03:00.

    If you want to execute your bot only on selected market/s, then leave “Open only selected” checked, otherwise uncheck it, so your bot will be executed on all markets listed in “Event Browser”.

    In my video I wanted executed my bot only on those 3 selected markets.

    At the end of my video I showed what should be done first. You should run your bot for test purposes on couple markets, because you bot offers 12 different parameters you can set with different values, so this way you should ensure that settings works as requested.

    Bfexplorer offers “Practice Mode” so when it is activated, no bets are placed on betfair, but bfexplorer and your bots act like real bets were placed on markets. I really suggest testing your strategy in “Practice Mode”, you can run it for couple days to find a profitable bot settings, and/or list of races on which your strategy generates profits.
