Running a betting bot can be a nightmare. Most software only runs on Windows, so if you’re a Mac user it’s game over, and even if you use Windows, the second your computer goes to sleep it stops working. Michael Wilding from Race Advisor is going to attempt to use a Raspberry Pi to run a betting bot, 24/7, from a home internet connection.
- Using a remote desktop or VPS is expensive, and they’re sluggish and slow.
- Michael’s investigating whether you can build our own betting bot computer, for less than £100, using a Raspberry Pi.
- You can connect it to your internet connection, and let it run without the risk of it every stopping.
