Each-Way Sniper Full Review
This is the third Mike Cruickshank product we have reviewed so far here at Honest Betting Reviews after Bonus Bagging and Profit Maximiser and we are pleased to say it is now three for three in terms of approved ratings for his products.
Whilst the aforementioned products are about exploiting the bookies’ free bets and bonuses, Each-Way Sniper is a little different.
As the title suggests, it is about taking advantage of the inherent value you get from the place part of certain each-way bets with the bookies.
Basically you use that inherent value to secure a profit whatever happens by laying on Betfair.
How does it work?
First up you go to the Each Way Sniper software, which is quite an amazing piece of kit. It automatically identifies potential each-way “snipes” where you can guarantee yourself a profit whatever happens.
Here is a look at the software in action:
From the software you can see the best opportunities, the relevant bookie that has the odds for a particular selection and how much you can make from each opportunity.
Then you can click through to the calculator and input the values to work out exactly how much to put on and how much you will make.
Then just place the bets, sit back and you are guaranteed profit, regardless of whether your horse wins or loses! Clever eh?
How much money can you make from Each Way Sniper?
The question of how much money you can make really depends on how much time you put in to it.
This is primarily for people who are able to be at their computer during the afternoon/evening when races are on so that you can access the software and make the selections. If you are able to do that, then you can potentially have a good few “snipes” each day.
How much you make on each snipe depends on your staking. We used £25 each-way stakes for the trial and were making as much as £10 on some snipes, but the average was more like £3-£4 per snipe.
We weren’t able to use the software every day due to time restrictions so you could certainly make more than the £473 we did during the trial – that would very much be the minimum you could expect to make in a 2-3 month period.
Are there any drawbacks to Each Way Sniper?
As mentioned, this is mainly for people who can monitor the software and access their bookmaker accounts whilst racing is on, to find the opportunities and place the bets.
However, you potentially could find opportunities yourself before racing starts, place your bets and be done with it and not need to monitor the software all day. This wouldn’t identify as many bets though so would limit how much you could make.
The other potential drawback is the possibility of having your bookie accounts closed or limited. In order to reduce this possibility, we would recommend not placing bets on races where there is a strong odds-on favourite.
The bookies positively hate such bets and are well aware that these are value opportunities for the punter. Once you have placed a few of them with the same bookie, you will almost certainly be on their radar and it will only be a matter of time before your account is limited.
So our advice would be to avoid these races and go for bets where the favourite is odds-against and so it isn’t such an obvious “arb.” That will keep you off the bookies’ blacklist for much longer. There will still be plenty of bets and it should not limit things much in terms of how much you can make.
OVERALL VERDICT: PASSED
Overall we feel Each Way Sniper is a great little product and well worth having as part of your matched betting portfolio.
It isn’t quite as amazing as Profit Maximiser in terms of how much money it can make you, so if you haven’t got that yet we strongly recommend you do.
But Each Way Sniper can certainly make you an extra couple of hundred of quid per month with just a little bit of effort. Most of the hard work is done for you by the software, which is a great piece of kit.
And it is certainly very satisfying taking the “snipes” and making risk-free cash off the bookies.
As long as you are able to access the software during the afternoons/evenings when racing is on and don’t make it obvious to the bookies what you are doing, then this can really add some cash to your bank on a regular basis.
Each-Way Sniper – Results Update
17th January 2016
Things have been along steadily for Each-Way Sniper since our last update about six weeks ago. We are now £340 up using £50 stakes, which is pretty good going for a no-risk system.
There are some days without any selections and then some days where you have a few.
Once you get the hang of it then it doesn’t take long to find potential races each day. Then it is just a case of viewing the markets about 20-30 minutes before the off to see if there is a qualifier.
We have just over a month to go in our trial of Each Way Sniper so will be back then with our final thoughts.
Each-Way Sniper – Results Update
27th November 2015
We have had an interesting start to our trial of Each Way Sniper from Mike Cruickshank in that we are not quite sure how to rate this product.
On the one hand it does “work” and has made money so far. But on the other hand, we wonder how long it can last and question the amount of time that is needed to produce quite small profits.
Anyway, on with the results update.
This is basically a product that uses the additional place value you get from the bookies in certain races to make a risk-free profit.
These races are typically “top heavy” ones where you have a couple of strong favourites and then a big gap to the rest of the field.
Basically in such races, the place part of an each-way bet can often have better odds than the Betfair place odds, so if you can get instances where the win odds are about the same with a bookie and Betfair, then you can make a profit regardless of the outcome of the race. Clever eh?
Well as with most things that look to put one over on the bookies, they don’t like it.
In fact, it is fair to say that bookies positively hate bets like this and it is one of the surest ways to get your accounts shut down.
So you have to take rather significant mitigating steps to ensure that doesn’t happen – spreading your bets around, not going overboard with your stakes, using “mug bets” and so on.
If you can avoid getting your bookie accounts shut down, then what kind of money can you make from Each-Way Sniper?
As you can see, on a lot of the races you are making just a couple of pounds per selection, which is quite small fry really.
But then others you can make 8 or 9 quid per selection. And in some races you can back the same selection with a number of bookies, meaning you can really clean up.
There are generally just one or two races per day to play in and it does involve manually checking potential qualifying races and then checking the Betfair market and bookie prices around 20-30 mins before the start of the race.
So it does mean quite a bit of work on the part of the punter and you have to be able to access Betfair and your bookie accounts in the afternoon to make this work.
We don’t think it’s necessary to run a full three month trial here because the results don’t vary too much and you will have a pretty good idea how much you can make from a few weeks of results.
We will return with some more results and our final thoughts on Each Way Sniper soon.
Each-Way Sniper – New Review
23rd September 2015
Today we are commencing a new trial of a betting system called Each Way Sniper.
This is another product from Mike Cruickshank, who has produced a number of other betting systems, primarily based around exploiting bookie bonuses.
This is a different approach however and is not based on bookie bonuses. It is based around exploiting the value of each-way betting on certain types of races.
On the sales page the system promises to make you £300 to £500 per month risk-free in just 20 minutes per day.
Sounds pretty good, that would certainly come in handy 🙂
Will this live up to the promises made on the sales page though? We will find out during our trial.
Check back here for further updates.
