Membership / Login

How does login work??

1. You input your username OR email (no password)
2. An email is sent to the email associated to your account, with a login link
3.You click the link to login

The login links from these emails are valid for 15 minutes. If you don't click the link within 15 minutes, you need to login again in order to get a new email.
Once logged in, you should stay logged in for about 2 weeks.

Ive forgotten my username?

You can login with your username or email address
If you cant remember your email then try to find any emails or alerts from OLBG - these will be addressed to your email.

Can I change my username?

Given that people follow each others tips and forum posts & we have the alerts system it would get too confusing if we allowed people to change their username.

How do I change my email?

Login to and go to the Members and Tipster Competition area using the top menu.
Select "My Info" from the left menu.
If you do change your email then you will need to reconfirm it TWICE by clicking on
-a link in a message that we send to your new email address to confirm its validity
-a link in a message that we send to your old email address to authorise the change

How do I delete my account?

Login and go the the Members and Tipster Competition area.
Select "My Status" from the menu in the logged in Members Area.
On the Bottom Right under the Real Money unit the last line "You can delete your OLBG account by clicking here" is where you can delete you account from.
Be warned that once you do delete your account you will not be able to open another account for 12 months. There are strictly no exceptions to this.

How do I stop receiving emails?

Most of the emails can be stopped by logging into the Members and Tipster Competition area and selecting "My Emails" from the left menu.
For tip related emails you need to turn off each alert manually. You can do this from the members area by selecting "Tipster Alerts" and "Hot Tip Alerts" from the left menu.

What are the alerts?

There are a number of different alerts - all free of course. The main ones are "Tipster Alerts" which allow you to follow the tips of a specific member, and "Hot Tip Alerts" which allow you to be notified when a lot of members are picking the same result. Both of these are very configurable and can be accessed from the left menu in the members area.

How do I login to the tipster competition?

Click on the login button at the top of the homepage

Ive been asked to re-confirm my email?

If we try to contact you and the email bounces you will be prompted to set a new email next time you login. We will then email you at that new email address and like when you joined, you will have to click on a link in the email to reverify your account. If you fail to do this within 30 days then your account will be deleted.

Why dont you ask for a password??

We use a more secure method of login that does not require passwords. Instead we email you a link and this will log you in for several days or until you logout.
