Before installing BT Draw

As noted in the “System Requirements” part, before installing BT Draw, you have to:

  • Open a Betfair account.
  • Subscribe to Betting Assistant. Why? Because BT Draw does not directly use the Betfair API but uses the COM connection of Betting Assistant (Gruss Software) to connect to your Betfair account. That’s why you have to subscribe to Betting Assistant (£6/month or £60/year) to run it (i.e. to scan the markets and place bets).

Betting Assistant must always be launched before to open BT Draw.

Without these two steps completed, you will not be able to run BT Draw.
