Just need results to pick up now.

The Snap – New Review

5th September 2023

Here at Honest Betting Reviews we are always on the lookout for services in sports beyond the “big three” of horse racing, football and golf.

In particular we are keen to seek out services covering US sports, which we see getting more coverage from tipsters now that gambling is legal in many US states. 

The biggest US sport of them all of course is NFL, which is now a truly global game with massive TV audiences around the world and even some games being played in London. 

Perhaps surprisingly, there are however a dearth of good NFL tipsters out there and we currently don’t have any on our Winning Tipsters list

Hopefully that is all about to change however with this next review. The service we are looking at is called The Snap and it comes from a guy called Russ Yershon.

Russ is an NFL expert and sports fanatic who has featured on channels such as Bloomberg, offering his expert analysis and viewpoints on the sport.

His results last season were very impressive, with a return on investment of 14.81% being achieved on a strike rate of 58%.  

It sounds like quite an easy service to follow with just 3-4 bets per week. There’s also a members-only chat group on Telegram where you can get discuss the week’s match-ups.

With the NFL season just about to kick off, it feels like an opportune time to get a review underway and in fact Russ has already sent out his outright picks for the campaign. 

So without further ado we will get this review off and running and will report back here regularly on how things are going. 

In the meantime you can check out The Snap for yourself here.

Banker Bets Over 1.5 Goals Betting – Results Update

It’s been a rocky road for Over 1.5 Goals Betting from Banker Bets lately, with a loss of £257 made to £50 flat stakes since our last update for their over 1.5 goals strategy.  

That means the new over 1.5 goals strategy is £587 down to £50 stakes for our trial overall, or 11.74 points down to one point level stakes. 

You can view full results here.

The favourites have also have struggled lately, with a loss of £293 made since our last update.

They are still an impressive £678 up for our trial overall however, or 13.56 points up.

Let’s hope both strategies can turn things around and get moving in the right direction again.

Banker Bets Over 1.5 Goals Betting – Results Update

9th December 2023

We continue to see the two strategies go in the opposite direction for Over 1.5 Goals Betting from Banker Bets at the moment, with a loss of £238 made to £50 flat stakes since our last update for their over 1.5 strategy.  

That means the new over 1.5 goals strategy is £316 down to £50 stakes for our trial overall, or 6.32 points down to one point level stakes. 

You can view full results here.

On the other hand however, the favourites have continued to perform superbly, making a profit of £208 since our last update. That puts them £1064 up for our trial overall. 

As mentioned previously, the favourites have always been the bread and butter of the Banker Bets service, going right back to our original review way back in 2015. 

So that looks like the strategy to focus on for the time being.

Banker Bets Over 1.5 Goals Betting – Results Update

7th November 2023

It’s a mixed picture for Over 1.5 Goals Betting from Banker Bets at the moment, with a loss of £214 made to £50 flat stakes since our last update for their over 1.5 strategy.  

That means the new over 1.5 goals strategy is £78 down to £50 stakes for our trial overall, or 1.56 points down to one point level stakes. 

You can view full results here.

On a more positive note however, the favourites have continued to perform admirably, making a profit of £188 since our last update. That puts them £856 up for our trial overall. 

As mentioned last time, the favourites have always been the bread and butter of the Banker Bets service, going right back to our original review way back in 2015. 

So it’s not surprising to see those as the best performing of the current strategies and those look like the ones to concentrate on for the time being.

Banker Bets Over 1.5 Goals Betting – Results Update

The tough times continue for Over 1.5 Goals Betting from Banker Bets unfortunately, with a loss of £325 made to £50 flat stakes since our last update. 

That means the new over 1.5 goals strategy is £136 up to £50 stakes so far, or 2.72 points up to one point level stakes. 

You can view full results here.

On a more positive note, the favourites have continued to perform well, making a profit of £29 since our last update. That puts them £668 up for our trial overall. 

In many ways it’s the favourites that have always been the bread and butter of the Banker Bets service, going right back to our original review way back in 2015. 

So it’s not surprising to see those as the best performing of the current strategies and we wouldn’t be surprised to see them just concentrate on those going forward.

Banker Bets Over 1.5 Goals Betting – Results Update

1st September 2023

It’s been a tricky month for Over 1.5 Goals Betting from Banker Bets, with a loss of £120 made to £50 flat stakes since our last update. 

That means the new over 1.5 goals strategy is £461 up to £50 stakes so far, or 9.22 points up to one point level stakes. 

You can view full results here.

We mentioned last month that John who runs the service was considering dropping some of his other systems and he has indeed put them on hold, leaving just the over 1.5 goals and Favourites strategies. 

The favourites had a good month, making £117 profit. That puts them £639 up for our trial overall. 

The other two systems, draws and over 2.5 goals, were slightly down when they were paused while John does additional study to see if he can make some alterations to improve performance.

In the meantime it makes sense to concentrate on the strategies that were working best and producing the profits, so for the time being we are down to just those two.

Banker Bets Over 1.5 Goals Betting – Results Update

30th June 2023

It’s been a tough time lately for Over 1.5 Goals Betting from Banker Bets, with a loss of £140 made to £50 flat stakes since our last update. 

That means the new over 1.5 goals strategy is £581 up to £50 stakes so far, or 11.5 points up to one point level stakes. 

You can view full results here.

We are also tracking their other strategies (results can be viewed in the other spreadsheet tabs) and those have been going along well, although with a slight loss this month. 

The results so far are as follows:-

  • Draws: -£66 loss 
  • Over 2.5 goals: -£46 loss 
  • Favourites: +£522 profit

In terms of the Over 2.5 Goals and Draws, both are hovering right around break even after just about 7 months.

John who runs the service says that’s clearly not good enough, and he thinks it’s a large enough sample to determine that they aren’t working as currently structured. 

He thinks it’s best to retire them but he hasn’t made a final decision on that yet, so we’ll keep an eye on things until he has decided what to do.

Just a reminder though that the previous over 1.5 goals strategy led to a loss of just over 11 points over the course of around six months – that and the previous over 2.5 goals strategy are included in the spreadsheet too for the purposes of transparency.

Banker Bets Over 1.5 Goals Betting – Results Update

It’s been a solid start to the new strategy for Over 1.5 Goals Betting from Banker Bets , with a profit of £133 made to £50 flat stakes so far – or 2.66 points profit to one point level stakes. 

You can view full results here.

Just a reminder this is a new selection strategy for over 1.5 goals, following on from a disappointing run for the previous strategy that led to a loss of just over 11 points over the course of around six months. 

It’s early days but the new strategy has started off in promising fashion so let’s see if it can keep things going.

Banker Bets Over 1.5 Goals Betting – Results Update

8th January 2023

It’s been a rough old time for Over 1.5 Goals Betting from Banker Bets lately, with a loss of £1349 made to £100 flat stakes since our last update.

That means they are now £1146 down for our trial overall. 

You can view full results here.

Following strong initial results from June through September, unfortunately the Over 1.5 goals service fell off a cliff in October. Even with a modest profit in December, it hasn’t been performing anywhere close to how John, who runs the service, wants. 

For the past couple of months he’s been working on improving the selection system and is now ready to make the change. So a new over 1.5 goals system will start from today and we will start proofing those selections. Suffice to say the old selections would have gone down as a failed rating sadly. 

Following on from that, John has also refined a new selection method for over 2.5 goals. That means that though there will be some commonality, it will no longer be the exact same matches selected for Over 1.5 and Over 2.5. There are also some new draw selections John will he sharing.

Perhaps most exciting though is news that John has reached an agreement with a professional football trader called Chris to offer his live trading advice through the Banker-Bets site. Chris operates 6 different trading strategies which John has been proofing in real time and the results have been impressive with over £6,500 profit reportedly amassed since June 2022.

Apparently this won’t be for everyone, as you need to follow the matches in real-time to execute many of the trades, but they’ll be offering a free trial so you can test it out first.

Banker Bets Over 1.5 Goals Betting – Results Update

8th October 2022

Another profitable month for Over 1.5 Goals Betting from Banker Bets, with a gain of £100 made to £100 flat stakes since our last update.

That means they are now £203 up for our trial overall. 

You can view full results here.

As mentioned in previous updates we are also tracking over 2.5 goals in the same matches, which you can back instead of or as well as the over 1.5 goals.

It was also a good month for the over 2.5 goals, with a profit of £134 made since our last update, putting them £80 up for our trial overall. 

It was a fairly quiet month in terms of bets due to the international break but October is cram-packed with fixtures so we should see lots of action this month.

Banker Bets Over 1.5 Goals Betting – Results Update

7th September 2022

It was a slightly down month for the over 2.5 goals, with a loss of £149 made since our last update, putting them £54 down for our trial overall. 

So the over 1.5s performing better at the moment, let’s see if that continues to be the case over the remainder of our trial.

Banker Bets Over 1.5 Goals Betting – Results Update

1st August 2022

It’s been a fantastic month for Over 1.5 Goals Betting from Banker Bets, with a profit of £521 made to £100 flat stakes since our last update.

That means they are now £13 up for our trial overall. 

You can view full results here.

As mentioned in previous updates we are also tracking over 2.5 goals in the same matches, which you can back instead of or as well as the over 1.5 goals.

It was a spectacular month for the over 2.5 goals, with £1162 profit made since our last update, putting them £95 up for our trial overall. 

The over 1.5 goals had a perfect month with 22 wins from 22 bets with the over 2.5 going 19-3 for July. Top stuff, let’s hope they can keep it going now the main footy season is about to kick off.

Banker Bets Over 1.5 Goals Betting – Results Update

2nd July 2022

It’s been a better month for Over 1.5 Goals Betting from Banker Bets, with a profit of £128 made to £100 flat stakes since our last update.

However they are still £508 down for our trial overall. 

You can view full results here.

As mentioned in previous updates we are also tracking over 2.5 goals in the same matches, which you can back instead of or as well as the over 1.5 goals.

It was a tougher month for the over 2.5 goals, with £242 lost since our last update and £1067 lost for our trial overall. 

It’s been quiet lately with a lower volume of bets but it’s just over a month until the European season gets underway again so things will start heating up again soon. 

 

 

 

———————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————

Banker Bets Over 1.5 Goals Betting – Results Update

10th June 2022

There’s been very little change for Over 1.5 Goals Betting from Banker Bets lately, with a loss of just £5 made to £100 flat stakes since our last update.

That means they are now £636 down for our trial overall. 

You can view full results here.

As mentioned in previous updates we are also tracking over 2.5 goals in the same matches, which you can back instead of or as well as the over 1.5 goals.

It’s a similar story for the over 2.5 goals, with £3 lost since our last update and £825 lost for our trial overall. 

Things are a bit quiet at the moment with the main European leagues on Summer break and an international break for the Nations League, but there are still Summer leagues going on so there are still selections being sent.

 

 

 

———————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————

Banker Bets Over 1.5 Goals Betting – Results Update

2nd May 2022

It’s been a tough time lately for Over 1.5 Goals Betting from Banker Bets, with a loss of £635 made to £100 flat stakes (or 6 points) since our last update.

That means they are now £631 down for our trial overall. 

You can view full results here.

As mentioned last time we are also tracking over 2.5 goals in the same matches, which you can back instead of or as well as the over 1.5 goals.

It’s a similar story for the over 2.5 goals, with £818 lost since our last update and £822 lost for our trial overall. 

A couple of weeks ago they added in a new way of backing the selections – in the over 0.5 first half goals market – so in other words for there to be at least one goal in the first half.

Some members had been following the selections that way with considerable success and the long-term numbers backed it up, with an 80% strike rate and 113% level stakes profit from 299 bets.

Well you can guess what happened next…yes unfortunately that method immediately went on a horror run, falling off a cliff so they’ve gone back to just recommending the over 1.5 goals or over 2.5 goals (although members can obviously still follow over 0.5 first half goals if they wish).

We are always a bit sceptical of services changing strategies at short notice and generally prefer it if they just monitor things for a while. In this case they did have the previous results to go off which is fair enough, but ultimately it’s probably better to monitor things live for a while before suggesting any changes.

In any event, this is what a trial is for so we can see these things play out under live test conditions before risking any of our own money. Either way let’s hope things pick up for them soon and they get back on track.

Banker Bets Over 1.5 Goals Betting – Results Update

28th March 2022

Somewhat of a retraction lately for Over 1.5 Goals Betting from Banker Bets, with a loss of £403 made to £100 flat stakes (or 4 points) since our last update.

That means they are now just £4 up for our trial overall. 

You can view full results here.

As mentioned last time we are also tracking over 2.5 goals in the same matches, which you can back instead of or as well as the over 1.5 goals.

It’s a similar story for the over 2.5 goals, with £408 lost since our last update and £4 lost for our trial overall. 

There have been a few surprising results lately with some games having lots of chances but just missing out on the over 1.5 or 2.5, so let’s hope that’s just a blip and they get back on track soon.

Banker Bets Over 1.5 Goals Betting – Results Update

Although the trial started out as just backing over 1.5 goals, they have since added the option of backing over 2.5 goals in addition to or instead of 1.5 goals, in the same matches.

Backing over 2.5 goals has also given 4 points profit, or £404 to £100 flat stakes, so far. You can see those results in the second tab of our spreadsheet.

Just a reminder that it’s FREE to join the service until 1st March 2022, so you can grab a free trial now if you like.

Banker Bets Over 1.5 Goals Betting – New Review

16th January 2022

One of the first services we ever reviewed here at Honest Betting Reviews way back in 2015 was a football betting service called Banker Bets.

We awarded it a PASSED rating as it produced an excellent 95 points profit during our trial. We have continued to track results since then.

Whilst it performed very well for the three years after our review, making 145% profit from the single bets and 410% profit from the accumulator bets, it rather trod water after that.

Never one to rest on his laurels though, John Baker who runs the service is continually innovating and his latest system focuses on the over 1.5 goals market.

Those who are regular football bettors will no doubt be familiar with this market, but for those who are not in essence it means betting for there to be two or more goals in a football match.

Most of the time the odds of over 1.5 goals will be low so you are talking about a high strike-rate system that looks to build the bank over time from lots of small wins that can be compounded.

Although only recently launched, the service looks very promising with the starting bank having doubled since starting in September. That’s if using a compounding approach of staking 10% of your bank on each bet, but even at flat stakes it is showing an impressive 70% bank growth.

The strike rate is very high at 88% so a very large proportion of the bets so far have been winners.

So this looks a very interesting strategy in a market we haven’t seen utilized very often in a betting service meaning there could be some value to exploit.

And the good news is that it’s FREE to join until 1st March 2022, so you can grab a free trial now if you like.

We began proofing on 6th January so will record results from then. Results will be updated regularly here as usual.

In the meantime you can check out Banker Bets Over 1.5 Goals Betting for yourself here.

 

 

 

AAA Bettor – Results Update

Something of a step backwards for football tipster AAA Bettor lately, with a loss of 8 points made since our last update.

That means they are now 6 points down for our trial overall.  

You can view full results here.

On 2nd December, the tipster sent out this message:

“Unfortunately, there will be no bets this weekend either. The reason is that my available time for analyzing football during the week is no longer as good as before. This means that at the moment, I am not in a position to catch the good bets at the right time.

“When doing this analysis on a Saturday morning like this, there are still opportunities. But the expected value is not as good as what is reflected in my historic numbers. Therefore I have come to the conclusion that it is better to not send anything, even if I think there is still some value.

“This means there will unfortunately be a break in the service. I don’t know for how long it will last, but at least until Jan 1.”

So we will put this trial on hold for the time being until they are back up and running again.

AAA Bettor – New Review

5th October 2023

We are starting a new review today of a football betting service called AAA Bettor from the Wadster tipster platform. 

This is an English Premier league football tipster and they only tip on the biggest markets on the exchange – ‘match winner’, ‘over and under goals’ and ‘Asian Handicaps,’ meaning there is plenty of liquidity available and there should be no problem getting bets on. 

AAABettor, a seasoned sports bettor with a substantial background in finance and statistical modeling, has been actively engaged in sports betting for an extended period.

His journey commenced by closely following advice from other tipsters, which provided him with valuable insights into the intricacies of betting theory.

Drawing from his expertise in finance and statistical modeling, AAABettor began creating football score models, initially as a recreational pursuit. Given the widely held belief in market efficiency, particularly in the major leagues, the prospect of consistently achieving profits seemed challenging.

However, AAABettor’s experience took an unexpected turn as he discovered that gaining an advantage was indeed achievable, even in highly competitive leagues like the English Premier League.

He learned that shortly after matches in a given gameweek, when the market was still developing, he could identify compelling value-based odds. 

This insight enabled him to place bets with a positive expected value in advance of the subsequent week’s games. His unique ability to process information in his model more swiftly than the market gave him a significant edge.

That edge seems to be real, with results to date reportedly standing at 130 points profit at an ROI of 6.5%, all at achievable prices.

Since going live on the Wadster tipster platform, he’s up 30pts for an ROI of 10% for the first season on the platform.

Each Way Tips – Results Update

It’s been a solid start to our trial of horse racing tipster Each Way Tips, with a profit of 5 points made to advised prices after two months. 

You can view full results here.

It’s a similar story at Betfair SP, with a profit of 6 points made for our trial to date. 

A simple staking system of one point each-way on every selection is used, which we like to see.

In any event, a solid start here for them to build on going forward.

Each Way Tips – New Review

6th July 2023

We are starting a new trial today of a service called Each Way Tips from the Phil Rushton stable of tipsters.

This is a service that has been going since 2019 and in that time has made over 370 points profit

That has been achieved with a good strike rate of 40% and a solid return on investment (ROI) of 12%

As the name of the service suggests, all bets are each-way bets and are on UK and Irish racing. 

The staking is a simple one point each-way on each selection and there are just one or two bets per day on average, making it a straightforward service to follow. 

The tips are supplied by a guy called Pete Thompson who has been a professional tipster for over 3 years and has been betting on horses for 15 years.

His other betting service Racing Wins has been going for a number of years and has also produced decent profits. 

Pete focuses on finding value at prices of 4/1 and above and only selects a horse if he is sure it has a strong chance of winning or placing. 

We often say here at HBR that the crucial factor we look for in tipsters is their longevity – their ability to make a profit over an extended period of time – so it is good to see this service has been running for nearly four years now. 

Whether it can continue performing well we will find out in our trial but the signs are promising at least. 

We started receiving tips on 1st July so will record results from then. Progress will be updated here as we go along as usual.

In the meantime you can check out Each Way Tips for yourself here.

 

 

 

 

 

Wadster Winners – Results Update

It’s been a quiet time lately for tennis tipster Wadster Winners, with no change to the P/L made since our last update.

That means they are still 33 points down for our trial overall.  

You can view full results here. 

Please note that this service has now been placed on hold.

Wadster, who runs the service, provided this update via Telegram:

“The truth is mentally I’ve not been at my sharpest for the previous few weeks and the last thing I want to be doing is to be sending bad bets or ones with negative EV when that’s the case.

Unfortunately, the present circumstances are unlikely to change soon, and I do think it’s best for myself and all of you that I take a break from tennis tipping whilst I consider my options moving forward.

Hence, there will be a break in the service, where I’ll provide everyone with an update in by the start of August by the latest.”

So we will place this review on hold for the time being pending a decision on if/when it will recommence.

Wadster Winners – New Review

13th October 2022

It’s been a while since we reviewed a tennis tipster here at Honest Betting Reviews so we are pleased to be starting one today. 

This service is called Wadster Winners (formerly Wadster Tips) and the tips come from a guy called Aidan Wardle. 

Aidan says his approach “has always been largely based on an intuitive understanding of tennis and the factors that are important in winning a match. I know how to then apply relevant data to solidify my opinions on betting ideas and to create value bets to make profits.”

The approach appears to have worked very well, with 197 points profit made since starting up in 2019, according to the results on the website. These tips have been proofed to the pyckio website as well as the SBC so have some solid verification behind them. 

The returns have been achieved with a return on investment of just over 8% which is very respectable in tennis terms. 

Each of the last three years has produced over 40 points profit which is a strong level of consistency. 

The tips are provided via a betting bot on Telegram, which is increasingly becoming tipsters’ modus operandi these days. 

The service works on a “pay as you win” model, whereby subscribers only pay for tips if Aidan make profits for them, and they purchase these in the form of credits/points at a cost of £5 per point.

That’s fair enough really and it’s surprising in some ways that more tipsters don’t operate in this way. 

In any event, this looks like an impressive all-round service and one of the better tennis tipsters we have come across so we are looking forward to getting the trial underway. Results will be updated here as we go along as usual. 

In the meantime you can check out Wadster Winners for yourself here.

 

 

 

Formula 1 Drivers’ Championship Winners Profile: Sebastian Vettel

Sebastian Vettel is one of the most storied champions in the history of Formula 1. This German driver won four consecutive championships from 2010 to 2013, making him one of the most impressive drivers of all time. But how did he become so successful? What is it that makes him so impressive?

Whether you want to know more to get the best of sports betting lines, or just to brush up on your Formula 1 history, then this is the perfect place for you. We’re going to delve into the career and life of Sebastian Vettel, exploring the most integral moments that have caused his success in the sport.

Early Life

On July 3, 1987, in Heppenheim, Germany, Sebastian Vettel was born. His father ran a go-kart track in his hometown, which inspired his love of motorsports at a young age.

Vettel started karting when he was three years old, and by the time he was eight, he had already won his first club championship. Before switching to single-seaters, he continued to excel in karting, taking home numerous regional and national titles.

Vettel competed in the Formula BMW ADAC championship in 2003 when he was just 16 years old, winning the title in his first season. He won four races and placed on six podiums the following year, when he came in third in the championship. Red Bull was impressed by his performances and hired him in 2006 as a test driver for their Formula One team.

F1 Debut

At just 19 years and 53 days old, Vettel made his Formula One debut for BMW Sauber at the 2007 United States Grand Prix, making racing history as the youngest driver to ever start a race. His impressive performance in his first race earned him a point with an eighth-place finish. He took the place of the injured Robert Kubica.

Vettel made his race debut for Red Bull Racing at the 2009 Chinese Grand Prix, taking the place of the team’s underwhelming Sébastien Bourdais. Later that year, Vettel was confirmed as a test driver for Red Bull Racing.

At the 2008 Italian Grand Prix, Vettel, then 21 years and 74 days old, became the youngest driver to win a Grand Prix in just his second race for the team. It was his first F1 victory.

Vettel finished second in the Drivers’ Championship the following year with four victories and eight podiums. He also made history by becoming Red Bull Racing’s youngest driver to win both a pole position and a race.

Championship Success

In 2010, Vettel won the Drivers’ Championship for the first time after finishing the season with five victories and ten podium finishes. At age 23, he became the youngest-ever F1 World Champion after winning the title with one race remaining.

Vettel continued his dominance in 2011 after winning the championship, winning 11 races and placing on the podium 17 times. He won his second consecutive Drivers’ Championship with four races to spare, finishing the season with 392 points, 122 points ahead of his nearest rival.

Vettel maintained his superiority in 2012, winning five races and placing ten times on the podium. At the Brazilian Grand Prix, he won the Drivers’ Championship for the third time in a row, making him just the third driver in F1 history to accomplish this feat.

By winning 13 races and placing on the podium 16 times in 2013, Vettel won the Drivers’ Championship for a record fourth time in a row. He won nine races in a row from the Belgian Grand Prix to the Brazilian Grand Prix, breaking the previous record for the most consecutive victories in a season.

Outside Of The Sport

When he’s away from the track, Vettel is well known for his love of music, even going so far as to sing karaoke at F1 events. He’s a keen football fan, supporting Eintracht Frankfurt. Vettel has been involved in several charitable initiatives throughout his career. In 2015, he set up a charity that has helped disadvantaged children and other young people around the world in their lives. 

He’s also a big supporter of the Laureus Sport for Good Foundation, which aims to use sport as a tool for social change in the world. These are some of the reasons why Vettel is beloved by F1 fans and others across the world. 

Final Thoughts

In short, Sebastian Vettel’s achievements in Formula 1 are what make him so renowned. His four Drivers’ Championships and 53 total race wins make him one of the most impressive drivers in the sport’s history. His success is a testament to his talent, dedication, and hard work, and he remains one of the most popular drivers today.

As Vettel continues his F1 career, fans around the world hope to see him return to a championship spot. We hope that this article has given you everything you wanted to know about Vettel. Learning more about previous winners of Formula 1 can allow you to get deeper into the sport, or get the best sports odds for future events. 

 

 

 

 

Town Star – Results Update

Town Star is a play-to-earn farming game from Gala Games, similar in style to Farmville. You can check out our full guide on it here.

Whilst things started off promisingly with this game, sadly the inherent weakness of the in-game economy we identified in earlier updates has had the impact we predicted. 

In essence the problem is that you have an economy where lots of people are earning significant amounts of the the in-game currency (Town Coin) and then want to sell it to cash in those earnings. However, on the other end there are very few buyers for that Town Coin.

The reason being is that there is very little reason to own the coin, other than to hold it in your wallet – which allows you to…earn more Town Coin!

Leaving aside the fact you can also achieve the same effect by holding Gala Tokens in your wallet instead, you can probably see the issue here. There is little incentive to buy Town Coin other than enabling you to earn more Town Coin (which is itself dilutive of course), meaning the value of the token is bound to drop in these circumstances. And drop it has – all the way from over $2 to $0.09 at the time of writing. 

Fundamentally, as we described in previous updates, there needs to be utility for Town Coin. Whether this is in using it to build items in the game, enhance your trading capabilities with other towns or some other use, there has to be a reason for people to want to buy the token and not just sell it.

Until this issue is addressed we don’t see a bottom for Town Coin and it could easily go to zero (or close to zero). In these circumstances there doesn’t seem much point putting in the many hours necessary to play the game when the earnings are virtually zero.

So we will leave this review in abeyance until these issues are addressed and we start to see some actual utility and value for Town Coin.

It seems this issue of in-game “tokenomics” as they are called is not limited to Town Star but is something all play-to-earn games are experiencing. Perhaps if one game developer figures it out then others can follow, but for the time being it is a space we will monitor rather than participate in.

Town Star – Results Update

10th February 2022

Town Star is a play-to-earn farming game from Gala Games, similar in style to Farmville. You can check out our full guide on it here.

In order to earn tokens in Town Star, you need to own NFTs. These are the farming items that you use in the game like grain storage, water fountains, shops and so on. 

We purchased four NFTs and have been playing the game for a few months now.

Each day you can earn the game’s native token, Town Coin (TOWN), by completing a daily challenge. It’s not too difficult at the moment and takes a few hours at the start of the month to build up your town and then around an hour per day to complete. 

Since our last update we have earned another 734 Town Coin, which means we have now earned 1734 Town Coin in total.

The problem is that Town Coin has absolutely plummeted in price since our last update. It was $0.56 per coin but is now just $0.18 per coin at the time of writing.

So our net earnings are only worth $312, which is pretty disappointing to be honest considering the cost of the NFTs and the work put in.

As we said last time, for the token to have value they really need to integrate it into the game. Whilst they said last Autumn they plan to do so, we have not heard anything since about what their plans are or when they may do so.

In the meantime we will keep working away to earn Town Coin in the hope that it goes up in value at some point.

Town Star – Results Update

6th January 2022

If you’ve been following us recently you’ll know we’ve been delving into the world of play-to-earn games. Whilst our focus here is mainly on betting and trading systems, we are always interested in alternative ways to make some extra income and the play-to-earn space looks set to explode this year.

Our first foray in this area was Sorare, which if you’ve been tracking our journey you’ll have seen we’ve been doing very well with over $20,000 in prizes won last year. 

Our next venture into this space is with an interesting little game called Town Star from Gala Games. 

This is a fun game that is a lot like Farmville if you ever played that game. You can read our full guide on Town Star here.

In order to be able to earn in the game, you have to first purchase some NFTs. These are the farming items that you use in the game like grain storage, water fountains, shops and so on. 

We purchased four NFTs:-

  • Alfa Fountain (OK)
  • Rare Sugarcane storage
  • Water Tower
  • Sugarcane storage

We also received a free Express Depot for becoming a gold Gala member.

Each one of these NFTs pays out a certain number of Town Coin per day if you complete a Daily Challenge, which you can then exchange for other cryptocurrency and then fiat money. 

However, unfortunately at the moment we are not able to use all our NFTs. This is because you need to have a certain amount of what is called “Gala Power.” There is a full article explaining it here, but in essence you need a certain amount of Gala tokens and/or Town Coin in your wallet.

At current prices this means spending thousands of dollars to move up the Gala Power levels and use your NFTs, which is far from ideal.

Gala Games say they will allow renting out of NFTs in future (no date confirmed though) and they may adjust the terms of the Power levels to take account of things like account age, number of NFTs etc, but for the time being we are stuck with this situation. The simple advice is it’s better to buy one big NFT than lots of small ones – you only need one Gala token in your wallet to use one NFT. 

Anyway, putting that issue aside how has it been going on Town Star? 

We have managed to earn Town Coin pretty much every day (apart from the odd day like Christmas Day, for obvious reasons) and so far have earned just over 1,000 Town Coin. 

At today’s prices of $0.56 per Town Coin, that equals just over $560. 

That’s not bad for a few weeks work and the NFTs we bought have gone up a lot in value. In particular the Rare Sugarcane Storage cost us around $1,200 when we bought it and is now selling for around $3,000. 

In this game you are hostage to the price of Town Coin, which has fluctuated quite a lot since we joined the game, from around $0.30 all the way up to over $2. 

We imagine when they actually integrate the token into the game itself – which they have said in two blog posts they plan to do – its value could appreciate, although that rests on them bringing lots of new players to the game too. 

In any event, the bottom line is our earnings have been pretty good so far even with the price of Town Coin having fallen a lot over the past month. It’s also a fun game to play so we would say we are cautiously optimistic about this one. There is still a lot of work for them to do to bring it to the mainstream but the early signs are encouraging.

Town Star – New Review

25th November 2021

If you’ve been following us recently you’ll know we’ve started to get involved in the play-to-earn gaming revolution. 

Whilst this isn’t strictly in the “betting category,” we do occasionally like to venture into other fields like forex, crypto and passive income. Anything really that can make an extra bit of income on the side! 

So our first foray in the play-to-earn field was Sorare, the fantasy football game that runs on the blockchain. If you’ve been following our journey you’ll have seen it’s been going very well with lots of rewards won. 

Our next sortie into the realm of play-to-earn games then is a fun little simulation game called Town Star from Gala Games.

We’ve written a full guide here on what Town Star is all about and how you can earn from it, but basically it’s a lot like Farmville. You run a small town and have to build it up from scratch by farming goods and then selling them. 

In order to earn tokens on it (which you can then sell on exchanges like Coinbase), you have to buy NFTs – or non-fungible tokens. These are the farming/industrial items like wheat storage, water fountains, solar panels and so on. Then you have to complete a daily challenge in the game to earn your tokens.

Another way to earn Town Coin is to finish high up on the leaderboard, although that is very tough so for most people the focus will be on earning the daily Town Coin. 

We’ve recently joined the game and will be documenting our journey here, just as we have been doing with Sorare.

So far we have one NFT placed in the game, earning 14 of the game’s tokens, called Town Coin, per day.

At today’s prices of $1.23 per Town Coin, that’s $17 per day in earnings, for just a small amount of time playing the game each day. Some people are already earning over $100 per day from the game. 

There is also the potential to move up the levels and be able to place more NFTs in the game, thus earning more Town Coin. 

Plus of course the value of Town Coin could go up as well – although it could also go down so you do have to accept the fluctuations in the price of the token and not expect it will necessarily go up. 

If more people join the game though, in theory it should drive more adoption of the token. 

Just to note that the cheapest NFTs that pay out Town Coin are currently priced at around $730. So at current prices it would take approximately 54 days to earn back the cost of the NFT. 

That presumes Town Coin stays at its current price of course, but it gives you a ball park idea of the payback time anyway. You also will own the NFT and they are generally going up in price all the time.

Please note there are a very limited supply of the NFTs though and they are selling out fast. All of the NFT info is covered in our guide so we recommend you read that first before buying any of them. 

In any event, given the potential here and the fact it’s quite a fun game to play, we are looking forward to running this review and will update our progress here as usual.

In the meantime you can open a Gala Games account and start playing Town Star for free here.

Cheltenham 2022 – Day Four Diary

Just a reminder I am tracking my results from this year’s festival using a twofold strategy, which is:

1. To use all the bookies offers, brought together via Profit Maximiser; and

2. Use three of my favourite tipsters – Quentin Franks Racing, the Bet Alchemist and the Irish Cash Consortium – to find the best bets for Cheltenham.

By combining the above two approaches together, this should give me a good chance of beating the bookies this week.

So how did this strategy perform on Wednesday at Cheltenham? Let’s have a look below.

 

Day Four Results

After some rotten luck on the first three days things had to turn around on the final day – right?

Let’s see how we did on the Friday of this year’s Cheltenham Festival. My stakes were £20 per point once again.

 

1.30 – Triumph Hurdle

It was a good start to the day with Quentin Franks’ pick Vauban grabbing the win and Bet Alchemist’s tip Fil Dor finishing second.

Profit/Loss from Race: +£44

 

2.10 – Handicap Hurdle

The Bet Alchemist had two picks in this race and both finished in the places thankfully. Quentin’s tip was third but was win-only so no returns from that.

Profit/Loss from Race: +£20

 

2.50 – Albert Bartlett Novices’ Hurdle

Quentin’s tip Hillcrest had to be pulled up whilst Bardenstown Lad from the Bet Alchemist grabbed a nice third place at tasty odds of 33/1.

Profit/Loss from Race: +£36

 

3.30 – Gold Cup

Both Quentin and the Bet Alchemist were on the same horse, Galvin, who never really looked like winning and ended up fourth.

Profit/Loss from Race: -£60

 

4.10 – Hunter’s Chase

The Irish Cash Consortium’s first tip of the day, Winged Leader, looked all over the winner and traded as low as 1.14 on Betfair before being pipped on the line. An each-way return though.

Profit/Loss from Race: +£1

 

5.30 – Martin Pipe Conditional Jockeys’ Handicap Hurdle

No bets in the 4.50 so it was on to the last race and the Irish Cash Consortium’s tip Hollow Games finished third for some more each-way returns.

Profit/Loss from Race: +£8

 

TOTAL PROFIT/LOSS FROM THE DAY: +£49

It was nice to finish with a profit on the final day after some tough days previously.

After a few years in a row of healthy profit at Cheltenham this was a disappointing week however, with a lot of seconds, fallers at the last and horses finishing just outside the places. It was just “one of those weeks” sadly.

Quentin performed well and you can really see the value of his ante-post picks, which all got smashed in by the time of the races. With lots of bookies now offering non-runner no bet for these big races nowadays, it is well worth taking advantage of this early bets and locking in some profit.

The Bet Alchemist had a really tough festival in truth. His record over the years at Cheltenham is very good but he just couldn’t get the rub of the green this year for some reason. Hopefully next year will be better.

The Irish Cash Consortium had a fairly light betting week and could only manage a few places, but no major damage done.

Just a word on the free bets from the bookies – sadly these are not quite what they used to be with nowhere near the kind of value previously. In prior years for example Bet365 had offered £50 free bets but now it is just £5.

Lots of the other bookies have tightened up the terms of their offers too. With Sky bet for example you now need your horse to finish second to qualify for a free bet from the first race for example where as it used to be more generous.

The real value now lies in the extra places which are quite generous, going up to six, seven or even eight places in some races. So those are well worth taking advantage of.

Anyway, that concludes this year’s betting diary from Cheltenham. We hope you enjoyed it and had a little bit more luck than I did!

 

 

 

Cheltenham 2022 – Day Three Diary

Just a reminder I am tracking my results from this year’s festival using a twofold strategy, which is:

1. To use all the bookies offers, brought together via Profit Maximiser; and

2. Use three of my favourite tipsters – Quentin Franks Racing, the Bet Alchemist and the Irish Cash Consortium – to find the best bets for Cheltenham.

By combining the above two approaches together, this should give me a good chance of beating the bookies this week.

So how did this strategy perform on Wednesday at Cheltenham? Let’s have a look below.

 

Day Three Results

After losses on the first two days it was all to play for on the third day of the festival and crucial to get things back on track. 

So here are the results from Thursday at Cheltenham. My stakes were £20 per point once again.

 

 

1.30 – Turner’s Novice Chase

You really couldn’t make it up. Thinking that finally the luck may have turned when the horse tipped by both Quentin and the Bet Alchemist burst clear and looked to be sailing onto a huge victory, well of course the horse had to fall at the last didn’t it! 

Having traded at 1.01 in-play on Betfair it was a cruel blow and a tough way to start the day. 

Profit/Loss from Race: -£80

 

2.10 – Pertemps Network Final

The tale of woe predictably continued in the next race as Quentin’s tip Alphillipe looked the winner before being pipped on the line. 

The Bet Alchemist’s tip Sire Du Berlais was never really in it nor was the Irish Cash Consortium’s pick. 

The only consolation from my own point of view was that I did have the 25/1 winner of the race, but that was a personal bet rather than one of the tipster’s selections. 

Profit/Loss from Race: -£100

 

2.50 – Ryanair Chase

Just the one bet in this race and that came from Quentin’s ante-post bet on Allaho at a tasty 3.50, which moved away nicely to land the first winner of the day. 

Profit/Loss from Race: +£50

 

3.30 – Paddy Power Stayers Hurdle

Just the one bet in this race and that was Home By The Lee (without Flooring Porter) from the Bet Alchemist, who finished well down the field. 

Profit/Loss from Race: -£20

 

4.10 – Plate Handicap

No bets from Quentin on this one but one from the Bet Alchemist, who – yep you’ve guessed it – finished one position outside the places. The ICC’s tip was well down the field once again. 

Fortunately I did have the winner in this race from my personal bets. 

Profit/Loss from Race: -£40

 

4.50 – Mares Novices Hurdle

The Bet Alchemist’s tip ran a reasonable race for sixth whilst Quentin’s tip, despite being well backed, failed to deliver for a change. 

Profit/Loss from Race: -£60

 

5.30 – Kim Muir Challenge Cup Handicap Chase

The Bet Alchemist had two more selections in this race and they both were pulled up whilst Quentin’s tip finished sixth. 

Profit/Loss from Race: -£60

 

TOTAL PROFIT/LOSS FROM THE DAY: -£310

A brutal day then, but it could have looked a lot different if we hadn’t had the runaway leader fall at the last hurdle in the opening race. There was more bad luck with seconds and horses finishing just outside the places again.

From my personal point of view the day was salvaged by Third Wind winning at 25/1 and Flooring Porter winning at 9/2, but those were unofficial bets and not part of this experiment. 

In any event, tomorrow is the last day of the festival and whilst it hasn’t been great so far, one big winner could turn it all around…

 

 

Cheltenham 2022 – Day Two Diary

After a frustrating first day of Cheltenham I was hoping things would pick up on Day Two at the festival. 

Just a reminder I am tracking my results from this year’s festival using a twofold strategy, which is:

1. To use all the bookies offers, brought together via Profit Maximiser; and

2. Use three of my favourite tipsters – Quentin Franks Racing, the Bet Alchemist and the Irish Cash Consortium– to find the best bets for Cheltenham.

By combining the above two approaches together, this should give me a good chance of beating the bookies this week.

So how did this strategy perform on Wednesday at Cheltenham? Let’s have a look below.

 

Day Two Results

After yesterday’s loss of £106 it was a case of seeing if we could get back on track on the second day of the festival.

So here are the results from Wednesday at Cheltenham. My stakes were £20 per point once again.

 

1.30 Ballymore Novices’ Hurdle

Just the one bet in this race and that was Journey With Me advised by the Bet Alchemist. Unfortunately it was a faller, so not the ideal start to the day.

Profit/Loss from Race: -£20

 

2.10 Brown Advisory Novices’ Chase

On to the second race then and Quentin Franks bet was withdrawn before the race so stakes were returned.

Bet Alchemist’s tip Beacon Edge finished well down the field but the Irish Cash Consortium’s tip grabbed a place to at least give us some sort of return on the race.

Profit/Loss from Race: -£17

 

2.50 Coral Cup Handicap Hurdle

Bet Alchemist’s tip Call Me Lord pulled up whilst the Irish Cash Consortium’s tip Drop The Anchor did exactly as it name suggests and went backwards, finishing 14th.

Profit/Loss from Race: -£40

 

3.30 Queen Mother Champion Chase

Finally a winner! Once again it was thanks to Quentin who is single-handedly keeping things afloat this week. This time it was Energumene at 5.0 coming home nicely in the feature race.

Profit/Loss from Race: +£80

 

4.50 Grand Annual Challenge Cup 

With no bets advised in the previous race, it was on to the Grand Annual.

Once again it was frustration as the horse both Quentin and the ICC had tipped, Andy Dufresne, came second after being backed very heavily before the race. The ICC had it each-way though, so at least some kind of return.

Profit/Loss from Race: -£18

 

5.30 Weatherbys Champion Bumper

Onto the final race of the day and it was frustration once again as Quentin’s Tip, American Mike, finished second after a strongly-run race.

The ICC picked an 80/1 shot who finished well down the field.

Profit/Loss from Race: -£40

 

TOTAL PROFIT/LOSS FROM THE DAY TWO OFFICIAL BETS: -£55

Well looking on the bright side it was a better day on Wednesday than on Tuesday, with a smaller loss made. Hopefully things are moving in the right direction. 😉

Once again however it was a case of “close but not cigar,” with more seconds to add to the (growing) list from Tuesday.

Quentin is having a good festival so far though and is once again showing why he is our number one recommended horse racing tipster.
