As noted in the “System Requirements” part, before installing Spikey, you have to:
- Open a Betfair account.
- Subscribe to Betting Assistant. Why? Because Spikey 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.
Betting Assistant must always be launched before to open Spikey.
Without these two steps completed, you will not be able to run Spikey.
