Project Description

PLEASE DO NOT BID FOR THIS PROJECT UNLESS YOU HAVE ALREADY SUCCESSFULLY COMPLETED PROJECTS THAT USE THE BETFAIR UK API AND CAN PROVIDE EVIDENCE OF THIS.

I require an application to run on a windows 2008 server VPS that will monitor an email inbox, extract data from emails received from a defined sender, then place bets using the Betfair API using the data extracted from the email (the horse selection) and some additional data that i can define within the app. THIS IS A TIME CRITICAL APPLICATION- the bet must be sent to the API the instant the email is received.

Data to be extracted from the email is the race time, race course, horse name (the API may not require all of this information to correctly identify the selection, so just extract whatever is required to identify the selection) odds and stake. The email will need to be parsed to find the correct information as there will be redundant information in the email- e.g. more than one figure for odds might quoted in the email but the lowest figure quoted should be used, then it must be converted into decimal odds. More details will be provided via PM.

Fields that the user can enter in the app should be as follows:
-the path to the email inbox being monitored
-befair account information- username and password
-back or lay market
-At in-play setting for unmatched bets: i.e. {cancel, keep, take sp}
-the email address of sender (who's emails will be processed by the app)
-the stake multiple (number by which the stake captured from the email should be multiplied giving the actual stake to be sent to API)
-odds adjustment (if i wish to adjust the odds extracted from the email by a fixed amount then the odds must be adjusted by the +ve or -ve decimal amount given in this field)
