Bingo Aff Program Gambling News Archive customer wins 500th auction

Online auction site is hailing Richard Ellis after the 24-year-old professional poker player took home a momentous milestone.

Thursday 30th December 2010

Online auction site has announced that the Christmas period saw one of its users celebrate their 500th win while racking up a total profit of over $20,000 after only a few months of bidding. was created by a group of professional poker players and sports enthusiasts including John Tabatabai with the intention of making the games and events that they love more affordable for the masses and offers packages at leading brands including, and alongside some of the hottest consumer electronic goods and video games. The site went live in August and allows players to bid as many times as they want in auctions for prizes such as poker tournament packages worth up to $10,000 alongside chips and credits from as little as one cent. Twenty-four-year-old Richard Ellis, who is known on the site by the pseudonym ‘rje8686’, stated that he spends up to two hours a day on bidding on all manner of items from poker auctions such as credits at to games consoles. “You always have to bid with a plan so that you don't end up in tricky situations later on,” said Ellis. “I generally set the bot and let it run. I find it’s the most effective way to put pressure on other bidders.” The Exeter-based professional poker player revealed that he has saved an average of 60 percent over the recommended retail price of his auction items including a seat to the GUKPT valued at $1,700. “As soon as I start bidding, I will almost never back down,” said Ellis. “The site is all about reputation and image and making people scared to bid against me in the future. “It’s clear that, after winning 500 auctions on, it’s more than just luck that’s enabled me to win so much. People often bid recklessly and waste bids. They also bid at incorrect times and don't pay attention to betting patterns. I’m not the only person who’s won lots on as a couple of my friends are doing extremely well from the site also.” Ellis recently won $49,000 at the World Series Of Poker in Las Vegas with stating that this represents another major milestone after it recently celebrated a total prize tally of over $250,000. “Even if you don’t normally look for added value, is still great fun as an auction,” said Tabatabai. “New players get ten free bids just for registering. That’s how confident we are in our product.”
