Deranged gambler who played ‘punishment roulette’ with bookmaker walks free

A failed, deranged gambler who played ‘punishment roulette’ with his bookmaker has walked free from court

Unhinged gambler Gareth Timms had been on trial accused of causing unnecessary suffering to a bookmaker by playing a twisted form of roulette, forcing the victim to ‘choose his own punishment’.

Sicko Gareth Timms spanked bookmaker Dik Venom, 59, with a Racing Post for 60 hours at an address near Perth racecourse, a court heard.

The Crown had alleged that 41-year-old Mr Timms had ordered Mr Venom ‘pick a number’ which corresponded to a chastisement only known to the unruly nutjob.

It was alleged that the deranged Timms bungled Venom into the back of his Ford Fiesta and drove him to a cellar last May after a particularly bad losing spell.

Pelted with Losing Slips

Crackpot Timms had been accused of pelting Venom with losing betting slips and playing the Skybet advert music continuously for 3 days.

Bookmaker Venom, who broke down giving evidence, said:

“I’m still traumatised by the sight of Jeff Stelling’s gold suit.”

“The utter headcase said he wouldn’t let me go unless I could verify my identity with a passport and a utility bill – which I obviously couldn’t.”

Venom was able to escape when the vile thug passed out from exhaustion after reading the bookmaker’s terms and conditions.

Full Sympathies

But fiscal depute Tarquin Bibby dropped all the charges against the maniac at Glasgow Sheriff Court when he sympathised with his plight.

“I backed all the same losers as Wack Job Timms; therefore he has my full sympathies. Case dismissed.”

The bookmaker said the experience made him more considerate towards punters, “but only for about 5 minutes”.

Bookmakers face €20 fines for ‘made up gambles’

bookmakers who indulge in ‘made-up’ gambles will get a €20 fine and told to ‘stop it’
Regulator says bookmakers who indulge in ‘made-up’ gambles will get a 20 fine and told to ‘stop it’

The gambling watchdog has promised to get tough on bookmakers’ exploitation of the vulnerable by treating fictional gambles – make-believe reports of horses being ‘backed’ or ‘working well’– with a whopping €20 fine and a stiff talking to.

Pretending horses are shortening – from 20-1 into 7-2 for example – bookmakers can extract punters’ money without ever striking a single bet.

Bookmaker Keith Vim said: “Idiots love backing the shortening horses. We call them ‘gambles’ and they earn us a fortune.”

“Without them I couldn’t drive a Bentley, send my kids to private school, or even have bought this gold toilet.”

“You’d think these monster fines would make us behave but we will do f*ck all if everyone wants our cash.”

Although entirely funded from losing bets, the regulator has threatened to ask the bookmakers nicely if they ought to stop the practice.

Gambling watchdog spokeswoman Shelley Craps said: “In addition to the fine, bookmakers flouting the new rule will have a stern letter from us, telling them to stop it.”

“However, our six-figure salaries, mortgages and colossal pensions depend on your lost cash, so we won’t get too angry.”

“Just this week a bookmaker got disapproving look and told they were very naughty, even though they put our letter in the bin.”

Millions are lost on ‘pretend gambles’ every day in the UK and Ireland with bookmakers using their own media outlets in television, in print and on the internet to propagate their made up rubbish.

Spotting the Signs

Striking a compromise, however, the betting watchdog has issued a Safety Pamphlet with all the signs to watch out for in case a full-of-shit bookmaker is trying it on.

Phrases:
  • “He’s the one everyone wants to be on”
  • “Well backed”
  •  “Good money for …”
  • “working well”
Practical Advice
  • Run a mile if anyone from a betting blog wearing bookmaker coats, pom-pom hats or otherwise tells you, ‘all the money has come for this one’

Bookmaker treats punter they made homeless to WHEELIE BIN

bookmaker t
Mugbet has kindly donated a wheelie bin to a punter they made homeless.

Punter Gareth Timms, who was made homeless by Mugbet’s endless false favourites, rubbish offers, and rigged slot machines, has had an early Christmas present in the shape of a WHEELIE BIN.

Former panel beater Timms used to have a 6-bedroom Devon town house, but since he started betting with Mugbet he now lives outside their shop in a blue recycling bin.

Timms said: “It’s warm, dry and cosy, but the only downside is once a fortnight a bin lorry takes me down the tip and chucks me in the landfill. I have to hobble back into town, but I’m grateful for the exercise really.

“Thank god for the cuts to services or it could be once a week!”

A spokesman for Mugbet whose slogan is “Where the Nation Pays”, Keith Vim said: “Gareth should be delighted with our kind generosity, giving back to the community and securing him a sturdy home he can love and cherish.

“The fact that we were chucking it out anyway isn’t the point: if he doesn’t like his neighbours he can just wheel himself away.

“As a special treat we’ve chucked in a roll of black bin bags he can use as sheets, but now that he can’t give us any more cash he’s banned from within 6 feet of the door.”
