Before installing Malbot

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

  • Open a Betfair account.
  • Subscribe to Betting Assistant. Why? Because Malbot 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) to run it (i.e. to place the bets).

Betting Assistant must always be launched before to open Malbot.

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