What questions are you stuck on?

Is your app written yet? Are you actually ready for the live key?

It's just a guide, it's whether you're contemplating it being 1 or 1000. It's probably just some sort of load prediction for resourse planning.
If all new applications this week say 1 then all is well, if they all say 1000, they'll fire up another server ?

Yes I have completed my coding and testing using the delayed key.

Just confused what to write in why do you need access to the API
what number of bets you will place per market
Of the markets you read, what percentage do you expect to place bets in?

Well presumably you need the api because your application won't work with it. And as for the others, either guess, put 'unknown' or even better... Just ask them?

How can you be competent to wrte a program but not answer simple questions? Surely you simply need the API to automate your bet strategy just say the pre made apps don't have the options you require if that's why. As for number of bets and number of market s you bet in , you must have some idea if it's 3 or 4 bets or 20 as you're the one who's set the conditions of when it bets. As for markets you read just say you intend to bet on them all otherwise they'll just think you're simply accessing the API to gather data if you stick a low figure.

Unless you're planning on doing something which breaches their Ts&Cs I don't know why you don't just talk to them if you're that concerned.
