Markovina posted this on the Harness site so for those that didn't see it;

Tab Touch piiss me off with their gimmicks 
But this win boost - one bet per  day
Race 7 today at Yarra Valley  Harness - i like the no 4 - small e/w 
So Tab Touch put up $26 - with the win boost goes to $34 - precisely what Tab.Com are betting 
Tab Touch are a joke 

Spot on Markovina. Others offer at least 3 boosts a day plus boosts on numerous novelty options and TABtouch normal race odds are usually the worst on offer. Boosts such as $18 to $20 are pathetic.
+1 -1

    The biggest joke from TABtouch is not even being able to offer money for 3rd when using the promo, monkey back for 2nd and 3rd is standard yet they only only money back for 2nd

    The amount of other promos and offers that are out there you’d think they’d atleast be able to match the same conditions as everyone else

    Tabtouch has approx 60k. account holders. ---  plus what they receive in fees from the corporates etc to fund the three codes and rwwa payroll--  -Bet 365 have 14.5 million account holders.

    They put bet 365 to shame on 9th july . Master Supreme race 5 Fairview  thought after having one start for new trainer .3200m win after 7 week layoff. then coming back to 2000m 3wks later a leader in 8 horse field.great eachway bet.----opened 5.50 with bet 3.65. took that thinking good price---- then had a look at tabtouch  was  23s. had some of that. finished up. 3.30..

    Thats like seeing a Tasmania Tiger

    Have to wait another 12 months.

    As Richard Burt once said at an annual meeting..."We are not in the business of losing money".
    He had a huge disrespect for punters!!

    The best thing that happened for this industry was the moving on of Richard Burt. His balls were kept safely in the pocket of whatever minister was in charge.

    Just a shame it was about 7 years too late!!!

    Rio, both Bennett and Burt should have been kicked out the door and fined over the Rosendorff credit betting scandal. As well reported by Liam Bartlett at the time, McGowan protected both of them.

    Absolute disgrace TABtouch. Left Pondus in the fixed market the first race in Melbourne. When it was scratched about half hour before start time . I backed the winner on fixes @ $3.20 and guess what deduction for the scratching of Pondus . Surely that nearly borders on illegal

    As at 7pm the first 5 horses listed in the market for R5 @ Ayr are not the horses that will run in the race.

    Hmm ....the press release says "at the request of RWWA", the government has recommenced the process. Is that significant?
    RWWA requires another Harness Racing Manager, the 8th since it's inception (Racing has had 2, Dogs have had 3)......worrying times ahead if you have a set of harness in the tack room.

    Rolling around with massive surplus, why do they want to sell the tab? Hopefully put the billion into something useful :-\"

    They wont even get half that. They are also saying the govt will prop up the industry, the buyer of the tab doesn't have to...... that thought makes me shudder. Racing for blue ribbons in 10 years.

    i cannot think of one reason they would want to sell it. as V_v says the govt. is rolling in dosh...why in the hell would rwwa request the govt. to restart the sale process?
    they should start with an in depth enquiry into bloody rwwa.

    Thanks 

    There was nothing in the run; regards interference. So bet 365 payout if you weigh in light. Still showing 17 winner  Guy Fox --but not in forecast or tricast divis.

    If you watch the trainer being interviewed from about 3:45 .........
