    Pet Society: Betting
    Unless you are doing this for the trophy, STOP. There are much better ways to make coins in Pet Society (PS). At ~2 minutes per race plus another for UI rangling, that's over 15 hours for the second trophy. Likely more.

    So here is my strategy...

    5 coins per bet. Macro it if possible or at least be multitasking and something stronger than watching TV. I'm pretty certain, I won't be going for the gold trophy until I have this totally automated (and I'm strongly in the no botting camp.)

    Likely 500+ is going to be required for the 100 win trophy assuming 1/3 winners. I don't think you can do anything to improve your odds. I'll let you know if the trophy covers 100+ of that.

    If 1/3... essentially the odds say lose 5 per win.
    lose 5, lose 5, win 5

    I tried a little bit of the Martingale betting early in my PS betting. I quickly realized I wasn't out to make a profit or even have fun, just get the trophy. So minimizing risk was necessary. Articles on the web verify that the betting limit of 500 puts you at risk for a 8 racing losing streak (5,10,20,40,80,160,320,500). I recall several times my 160+ reserve was nearly ruined, which only required a 5 race streak. I stopped to get more money. And then had a change of heart about my strategy.

    I've started tracking data to see how I'd do after about the 20th win. See below. Unfortunately, I didn't record which pets were racing.

    Data:
    Day1: LLL W LLLLLL W L W L (L=11 W=3) Winner Lanes=4 7 4 My place: 1=3 2=7 3=5
