Sure Favs – New Review

3rd May 2022

We are starting a new review today of a betting service called Sure Favs.

Well that’s not strictly accurate in fact – it’s actually picking up from a review we did previously.

Sure Favs is an automated betting system from the Exponential Bet (or Expo Bet for short) suite of services and we previously took a look at it as part of a broader review of four of their systems.

Although as a whole the four systems didn’t make a profit over the course of our review, Sure Favs was the one service that did perform well, producing an excellent 167 points profit during our trial.

We have kept an eye on results since our trial ended and it has continued to perform well, as you can see from the results graph below from the main Sure Favs system:-

Sure Favs main graph

Sure Favs – Main Exchange & BSP (Straight)

So we thought it would be a good time to give Sure Favs another look and put it through a dedicated trial of its own here at HBR.

In a nutshell Sure Favs is an automated strategy that places bets automatically on your Betfair account using software called Cloud Bet Bot.

We have tested the software out extensively across a number of reviews now and it works very well, placing bets seamlessly on your Betfair account to your specified stakes, all without the need for a VPN or leaving your computer running all day. Impressive stuff.

As the name suggests, Sure Favs is about backing favourites, one horse per race according to given criteria identified by Expo Bet.

There are essentially three strategies that form part of the service:

  • Sure Favs Main
  • Sure Favs High
  • Sure Favs Foundation

It is recommended to use a 100 point bank for each.

For a bit more info about the service, here is Ryan from Expo Bet with a quick run-down:

So it should be an interesting review and one we are looking forward to given the solid long-term results this one has amassed.

As always we will update results here as we go along.

In the meantime you can check out Sure Favs from Exponential Bet for yourself here.

Second Class Racing – Full Review

 

Second Class Racing is a horse racing laying service run out of the Betchat stable of tipsters, with tips provided by a chap called Mel Gee. 

Mel and Betchat are the same team behind another service we are currently reviewing – First Class Racing. 

Whilst that service focuses on selective back bets in top class racing, Second Class Racing does the opposite – it provides lay bets at a higher volume and in all classes of racing.

Over the years we’ve found very few successful laying services – really the only one being Little Acorns – and its complimentary service, Little Acorns Gold, which passed a review back in October 2022. 

So we approached this review with a bit of trepidation to see whether another laying service could finally pass a review.

We wanted to give the service a proper look as there can be quite a bit of variance in laying services, so we followed the service for just over 6 months and proofed more than 500 bets in that time. 

Selections are sent out via Telegram, where Mel posts a screenshot from Betfair with this picks, which looks like this:-

So you take a look at those and then try to place lay bets at the same price Mel has got. 

The rules of the service are to lay at the advised price (always between 3.0 and 6.0) and not to take a larger price.

If a lay isn’t matched at the advised price, then it’s no bet. 

You do not select “keep in play” or “take SP” on Betfair and there is no trading – it’s a “set and forget” approach. . 

Not all of your lay bets will be matched but that’s okay – Betchat say that over the long run it should balance out in terms of missing both winning and losing lays. 

In our own experience that was very much the case – we did have a few selections that we weren’t matched on over the course of the trial but a few of those were losers (as in the horse won), so it was actually a relief to have missed them. 

There were also a few winning lays we weren’t matched on so overall it pretty much balanced out. 

Anyway, after six months and 500 bets, how did it pan out?

Well we are pleased to report that a profit of 70 points was made, which is no mean feat in laying terms. 

That was achieved with a very high strike rate of 85%, so the vast majority of lays were successful. 

As is often the case with these things however, the unsuccessful lays did tend to come in batches. 

Call it “natural variance,” “bad luck” or whatever you prefer, but either way it can be a little testing when you get a bunch of losers close together and your bank takes a significant hit. 

However, in the long run Mel always bounced back and produced good runs of successful lays to rebuild the bank and ultimately finish the trial with a very healthy profit.

Whilst they do NOT advise following the service at Betfair SP, we also tracked the results at BSP just out of interest. 

Laying all the selections at BSP would have given a profit of 70 points, exactly the same total as taking the advised prices.

Laying only those selections with a BSP below 6 (Mel’s cut-off point for a selection), would have given a profit of 52 points, which is mainly due to having less bets – only 334 compared to 500 following the recommended approach. 

Whichever way you skin it then it’s been a very good trial and we are pleased to award Second Class Racing a PASSED rating. 

That’s only the second laying service to have passed a review here at HBR (and still be operational), so well done to Mel Gee and the Betchat team! 

 

Service Breakdown

Ease of use: The selections are sent out by Telegram, usually around midday UK time on the day of racing. There is plenty of time to get the bets on and with around 2-3 bets per day on average the workload is very manageable. 

Availability of prices: As discussed above, there were some instances of prices being missed but overall this balanced out and wasn’t really an issue. 

Strike rate: The strike rate for our trial was very good at 85%, meaning a very high proportion of winning lays. 

Advised Betting Bank: A 100 point bank is recommended for following the service which seems reasonable to us and was more than enough to cope with the ups and downs during our trial.

Subscription costs: Subscription costs are quite high at £199.97 per quarter or £599.97 per year, so realistically to make it worthwhile you would probably need a betting bank of at least £2,000. 

That’s based on a recommended betting bank of 100 points, so that would be £20 per lay. 

For our review period that would have produced £1400 profit, minus just under £400 in subscription costs if paying quarterly.  

 

OVERALL VERDICT: PASSED

Making a profit from lay betting is very tough. Testament to this is the fact that only one laying service has passed a review here at HBR and is still going – Little Acorns. 

So it’s great to be able to say we finally have another successful trial of a laying service, with Second Class Racing producing 70 points profit at both advised prices and BSP. 

It achieved that with a very high strike rate of 85% and gets a firm thumbs up from us with a PASSED rating. 

With the subscription costs being quite high however we would recommend at least a £2,000 betting bank to make it worthwhile signing up. 

For those that are able to stake at or above that level, Second Class Racing has produced excellent results over a six month trial and is well worth checking out.

That means they are now 60 points up for our trial overall at advised prices.

Whilst they do NOT advise following the service at Betfair SP, we have also tracked the results at BSP just out of interest. 

Laying all the selections at BSP would have given a profit of 40 points since our last update and a profit of 59 points for our trial overall thus far.

Laying only those selections with a BSP below 6 (Mel’s cut-off point for a selection), would have given a profit of 53 points so far.

So all in all the results have been pretty similar whichever approach you’ve followed.

Second Class Racing – Results Update

12th February 2024

It’s been a tough time lately for horse racing laying service Second Class Racing, with a loss of 33 points made to advised prices since our last update.

That means they are now 10 points up for our trial overall at advised prices.

Whilst they do NOT advise following the service at Betfair SP, we have also tracked the results at BSP just out of interest. 

Laying all the selections at BSP would have given a loss of 36 points since our last update and a loss of 2 points for our trial overall thus far.

Laying only those selections with a BSP below 6 (Mel’s cut-off point for a selection), would have given a profit of 22 points so far.

Just a note to say I’ve seen a few comments in the group chat about the recent losses and whilst it’s fully understandable to be disappointed, it’s important to take a long-term view of the results. 

That’s why we always advise allowing for the full review to be completed before deciding whether to sign up to a service or not.

We tend to run reviews for at least six months these days – and often much longer – which allows us to get a really good look at a service and a big sample size of bets. 

Reviewing over these extended periods allows us to cut out the “noise” of short-term fluctuations and see whether a service has a clear edge over the market. 

So we have to give this one a little more time to play out before reaching a verdict. The recent losses have been tough to take but let’s see where they end up at by the end of the review.

So will be interesting to see if that’s maintained during the rest of the review.

Today we are starting a new trial of a horse racing service called Second Class Racing

This comes from the same guy (Mel Gee) behind another service we are currently reviewing – First Class Racing. 

Whilst that service focuses on selective back bets in top class racing, Second Class Racing kind of does the opposite – it provides lay bets at a much higher volume (up to 12 bets per day) and in various classes of racing, not just top class racing. 

The results of the service so far have been very impressive:-

After 24 weeks the selections have:

  • Made £1,421 to 10 stakes…
  • Made an average of £59 per week…
  • Made a Return On Investment (ROI) of 17.5%
  • And achieved a strike rate of 85% (691 bets won out of 811).

So pretty strong results there, although it is still early days.

To find the selections Mel looks at Betfair between around 11 and 12 in the morning UK time and then posts the lay bets on Telegram with a screenshot of the lays placed on Betfair. 

Not all of the selections will be matched and Mel’s advice is not to go chasing the prices – if a selection isn’t matched at the advised price, he says to just leave it. 

All prices are between 3.0 and 6.0 so there is no risk of one unsuccessful lay wiping out your whole bank at huge odds as is the case with some laying services.

It is a “set and forget” strategy so once you have entered the lay bet on Betfair that is it – there is nothing further to do like trading or monitoring the market, your work for the day is done. 

So a very novel approach here and it will be interesting to see how this one fares under a live trial. It would be good to have a profitable laying service as they have been few and far between over the years.  

We will kick things off today then and will report back here soon on how it’s all going.

In the meantime you can check out Second Class Racing for yourself here.

Golf Betting Club – New Review

We are starting a new review today of a golf tipping service called the Golf Betting Club

This service is run by Duncan and Neil, two brothers hailing from Scotland. They developed a keen interest in tour predictions and golf betting during their upbringing, influenced by their father’s career as a golf journalist for renowned UK newspapers.

Their summers were often spent attending events at prestigious venues such as Loch Lomond, Gleneagles, Wentworth, and various Open Championship locations, immersing themselves in the sport.

Their journey in golf betting spans over two decades, but the inception of the Golf Betting Club occurred in March 2020, amidst the temporary halt in professional golf caused by the Coronavirus pandemic. Utilizing this hiatus, they pooled their extensive knowledge to craft free golf betting tips accessible to all.

Drawing from years of experience, they meticulously crafted over 100 player profiles of the world’s top golfers, constantly refining and expanding their database. 

This has resulted in very strong performance to date, with a profit of 779 points made so far since starting up in 2020.

That has been achieved with a return on investment (ROI) of 16%

Each year so far has been profitable, with the standout year being 2020 when they made 366 points profit.

Last year was also a good one with 167 points profit made and this year has started well too with 22 points profit made so far.

Tips are provided in the PGA, DP World and LIV tours and include both pre-tournament and in-play tips (normally between rounds). 

With a strong reputation this is a service we are looking forward to reviewing so we will kick things off (or should that be tee things off?) today.

Results will be updated here as we go along as usual so you can see how they are getting on.

In the meantime you can check out Golf Betting Club for yourself here.

N.B. – sign up to a 6 or 12 month membership of Golf Betting Club quoting ‘HonestBettingReviews25’ and they’ll refund £25 as a discount.

 

 

 

Outside Rides – New Review

We are starting a new trial today of a horse racing service called Outside Rides. 

This is a relatively new service that is based on a theory around top jockeys and small yards. 

The idea is that because small racing stables don’t get much access to top jockeys compared to the bigger, more wealthy stables, they offer those jockeys their best horses in an effort to secure their services over the long term. 

Outside Rides is focused on flat racing and has been live for just over a year now and has made a little over 50 points profit so far. 

That has come at a return on investment of around 8%, which is a solid enough return. 

At Betfair SP the results have been pretty decent too, with a profit of 38 points made to date at an ROI of just under 6%

Their backtested results look very impressive with a reported 1700 points profit made from the system.

However, we don’t normally put much store in backtested results as we have seen plenty of examples of backtested results that look great on paper but then when they go live fail to deliver the goods. Ultimately only live, proofed results carry any weight. 

Anyway, it looks like a promising service and we are always interested in new or innovative betting theories so let’s see how this one gets on under a live trial.

It operates on a “pay as you win” model which is good so no expensive subscription fees to pay if the service isn’t making a positive return. 

We’ll update results here as always so you can see how they are progressing. 

In the meantime you can check out Outside Rides for yourself here.

 

 

 

 

Football Trading Profits – New Review

Today we are starting a new review of a footy service called Football Trading Profits. 

This is a service that has been around for a few years now and has been on our radar to take a look at for a while so we are glad to have the time now to run a review. 

The service is run by a guy called Clive Keeling and was previously known as Delay React Trade, which was a reference to its main trading strategy. 

Now it is known as Football Trading Profits and we understand it includes a number of different strategies, although that one is still one of the main approaches used.

Included in the service are:

  • Daily research bulletins
  • Live Trading sessions
  • Telegram alerts
  • Blog Posts
  • FAQs
  • Support

So it’s quite a comprehensive service with a good deal of guidance for members. 

There aren’t too many services like this out there despite the popularity of in-play football betting and trading, so it’s good to see a service that tries to guide people in the right direction. 

We’ll have to wait and see how good the advice is however before making any judgements. 

So we’ll kick things off today and will report back soon on how things are going. 

In the meantime you can check out Football Trading Profits for yourself here.

Banker Bets Football Trading Clubs – Full Review

 

Banker Bets Football Trading Clubs is a trading service run by a guy called Chris, a professional trader. It is operated out of the long-running Banker Bets platform which we have previously reviewed here at HBR.  

Chris provides a number of different betting and trading strategies he’s refined over the past couple of years. They’re a mix of back and lay betting, some pre-match and some in-play.

The service is supplied via the Telegram messenger app, with members receiving selections for the day via a spreadsheet link and then live alerts for in-play trades. 

The number of strategies in operation changed quite a lot over the course of the review as some were dropped and others added. By the end of our review, there were 21 active strategies as part of the service. 

In terms of how we proofed the service, we did find it a very difficult service to review to be honest. 

We started off proofing three strategies, then expanded it to six once we had got our heads around how the service worked and how to operate the strategies, only to then see five of those six strategies removed from the service, leaving us with just one. 

We then added two new strategies to give us something more to proof and to allow us to complete the review, but obviously that wasn’t ideal. 

In the end, the one strategy that was in operation for the whole of our trial, the Home Wins, made £285 profit made from stakes ranging from £5 to £20 per bet. 

The other two strategies we added later were the overs and draws, and they made: 

  • Overs: +£56 profit
  • Draws: -£213 loss

So a bit of a mixed bag there with those two. 

Of the strategies that were retired, some of them had actually been doing quite well, for example the Home Values Draw were +£494 whilst the 15 minute lay the draw was +£484. 

However, Chris felt they weren’t optimal to his service (or there were better ones available) so were replaced by other systems. 

There are also some in-play strategies you can trade with those service, although you would need to have the time to be able to enter and exit trades when alerts are given out, which won’t be the case for everyone. 

Overall we felt this was a promising service and Chris is clearly very knowledgeable and hard-working.

However, we found it a difficult service to follow and proof and felt there were just a few too many changes made in terms of the strategies being dropped and introduced. 

We think it could have benefited from a bit more stability and sticking with some of the strategies that had good long-term results. As the old saying goes, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it! 

All betting strategies go through short-term ups and downs and sometimes it can be worth sticking with them to see how they turn out in the long run.

Anyway, that is just our view – it is obviously up to Chris how he runs the service and what he feels is best. 

Overall though, of the strategies still running, the three we proofed made a combined £128 profit from £10 average stakes – or around 13 points profit to one point stakes in other words.

At a return on investment of just 2% and over a period of 12 months we didn’t feel that was quite enough to warrant a passed rating so are only able to award this service a NEUTRAL rating at this time. 

 

Service Breakdown

Ease of use: Selections are provided via the Telegram app. As mentioned above, it is quite a difficult service to follow – firstly to get your head around how all the various strategies work and then to keep up as strategies are added and dropped. How many selections there are each day depends on how many strategies you follow, but if following all you are looking at around 5-10 selections per day most days, with a potential of up to 20 on a busy day.

Availability of prices: The prices quoted seemed reasonably available on Betfair overall – some would shorten whilst others drifted, pretty much evening out overall. 

Strike rate: The strike rate for our trial was decent at 62% across the three active systems.

Advised Betting Bank: 1-3% staking of the bank per bet is recommended for following the service, which seems reasonable to us given the high strike rate. 

Subscription costs: The subscription costs at the time of writing are  £33 per month, £79 per quarter or £277 per year.

 

OVERALL VERDICT: NEUTRAL

Banker Bets Football Trading Clubs is a mixture of different betting and trading strategies, including back and lay betting, some pre-match and some in-play. 

We found it quite a difficult service to review to be honest, with strategies being added and removed throughout our trial and it taking quite a bit of effort to understand how they all worked. 

At the end of our trial, the three active strategies we proofed finished a combined £128 up at £10 average stakes, meaning this service receives a NEUTRAL rating from us in the end.

Banker Bets Football Trading Clubs – Results Update

14th January 2024

It has been a mixed bag for the systems of the Banker Bets Football Trading Clubs lately, with some quite different results being posted for the three systems we are proofing:

  • Home Win: +£285 profit
  • Overs: +£56 profit
  • Draws: -£213 loss

That means the three systems are a combined £128 up for our trial overall. 

You can view full results here.

Just a reminder that five of the six systems we were proofing have now been retired, with the only one remaining from when we started being the Home Win system.

We have recently added in the Overs and Draws systems, which as you can see have had quite varying results so far. 

Hopefully these three stay in operation for the time being to allow us to complete the review.

 

 

 

 

————————————————————————————————————————————————————————–

Banker Bets Football Trading Clubs – Results Update

5th December 2023

It has become somewhat difficult to review Banker Bets Football Trading Clubs lately, with five of the six systems we had been proofing now no longer in operation. 

The one system that is still in operation, the Home Win system, has lost £48 since our last update. 

That means it is now £262 up for our trial overall. 

You can view full results here.

This has left us in a tricky position as to what to do with this review going forward.

Normally we like to stick to whatever systems or strategies are in place at the outset of our review and follow them through to the end. It is not ideal to be adding and removing strategies as you go along. 

It also calls into question somewhat the viability of the service if strategies are being retired, in essence as they are either not profitable or not practical to follow.

However, we want to be fair as possible and to see if we can make a sustainable profit from this service. 

So we will continue with the one strategy that is still going, the Home Wins – which to be fair is well in profit – and add two more strategies. 

These will be the Overs and the Draws. 

We will stick with these three until the end of our trial and hopefully they will remain in operation so we can finish our review.

Banker Bets Football Trading Clubs – Results Update

21st October 2023

A small drop for Banker Bets Football Trading Clubs lately, with a loss of £143 or 14.3 points made since our last update on the six systems we have been proofing.

The results for those six strategies are as follows (at £10 per point):-

  • 15 Minute LTD: +£489 profit
  • Home Values Draw – RETIRED: +£494 profit 
  • Home Win: +£310 profit
  • Home Win LTD: -£9 loss
  • HT LTD V2: -£39 loss
  • Double Chance – RETIRED: -£56 loss

That means the total now stands at £1189, or 119 points profit made for our trial so far.

You can view full results here.

As you can see above, two of the systems have been retired – the Home Values Draw and Double Chance systems. 

We are slightly surprised by the Home Values Draw being retired as it was nearly £500 in profit, but obviously they feel it hasn’t quite been performing well enough recently to justify continuing with. 

Anyway, that leaves us with four systems to follow for the time being which makes things a little easier and hopefully those remaining four systems can kick on again.

Banker Bets Football Trading Clubs – Results Update

11th August 2023

A small drop for Banker Bets Football Trading Clubs lately, with a loss of £33 or 3.3 points made since our last update on the six systems we have been proofing.

The results for those six strategies are as follows (at £10 per point):-

  • 15 Minute LTD: +£472 profit
  • Home Values Draw: +£603 profit 
  • Home Win: +£350 profit
  • Home Win LTD: +£44 profit
  • HT LTD V2: -£1 loss
  • Double Chance: -£51 loss

That means the total now stands at £1417, or 142 points profit made for our trial so far.

You can view full results here.

As mentioned previously there is a lot to take in with this service so we would advise starting off with just 2-3 systems, as it can be quite overwhelming trying to get your head around everything right from the start and you risk potentially making mistakes, over-staking or not quite understanding it all straight away. 

With the new season kicking off the action should really start picking up over the next few weeks and hopefully they can repeat the success of last season and add to the already substantial profits.

Banker Bets Football Trading Clubs – Results Update

11th July 2023

A small gain for Banker Bets Football Trading Clubs lately, with a profit of £16, or 1.6 points, made since our last update on the main three systems we have been proofing.

The results for those three strategies are as follows:-

  • 15 Minute LTD: +£511 profit
  • Home Values Draw: +£531 profit 
  • Home Win: +£356 profit

Those results are to £10 per point stakes so the total of £1398 profit is equivalent to 139.8 points profit for our trial so far.

Since our last update we have added in three further systems:

  • Home Win LTD: +£60 profit
  • HT LTD V2: -£36 loss
  • Double Chance: +25 profit

All in all then with that £49 across those three systems, the total now stands at £1450, or 145 points profit made for our trial so far.

You can view full results here.

We would advise starting off with just 2-3 systems, as it can be quite overwhelming trying to get your head around everything right from the start and you risk potentially making mistakes, over-staking or not quite understanding it all straight away. 

Whilst each strategy in itself is not overly complicated, altogether there are 16 strategies currently which is a lot to take in. 

So we would say take it slow and steady and build things up with this one. Overall we have been very impressed with the service but it does take some effort to fully grasp everything as we say.

Banker Bets Football Trading Clubs – Results Update

29th May 2023

Firstly an apology for the delay in updating our review of Banker Bets Football Trading Clubs. It is quite a difficult service to review as there are 17 separate strategies and a huge amount to take in.

The main thing we had to decide on was which of these strategies we would proof as it would not be feasible to try and track all of them – or even half of them to be honest. 

After some careful thought we have settled on three strategies – one of which is an in-play strategy and the other two are pre-match strategies. 

The three strategies are:-

  • 15 Minute Lay the Draw (LTD) – this involves laying the draw in a match after 15 minutes if the score is still 0-0. 
  • Home Values Draw – backing the draw before kick-off
  • Home Win – backing the home win before kick-off.

These three strategies are all pretty simple to operate and should be manageable for anyone, even if you are new to betting/trading. 

In any event, the results for those three strategies have been very good:

  • 15 Minute LTD: +£497 profit
  • Home Values Draw: +£560 profit 
  • Home Win: +£325 profit

Those results are to £10 per point stakes so the total of £1382 profit is equivalent to 138 points profit for our trial so far.

You can view full results here.

Although we haven’t been able to proof all the strategies as we say, the official results show a profit of 389 points in total for 2023 for the strategies combined. 

So it’s been impressive stuff so far. 

All the selections are sent out by Telegram and the odds quoted are with the Betfair exchange. 

For us following three strategies is just about manageable but there may be members who follow more (or all) so it’s a question of picking what is right for you.

Banker Bets Football Trading Clubs – New Review

18th January 2023

We are starting a new trial today of a football trading service called Banker Bets Football Trading Clubs

The trader behind the service is a guy called Chris, a professional trader who has been proofing to the Banker Bets site for 8 months and has reportedly made an impressive £7,373 profit in that time. 

Chris operates 6 profitable trading strategies he’s refined over the past couple of years. They’re a mix of back and lay betting, some pre-match and some in-play.

The trading strategies have reportedly produced the following results:-

  • Lay the Draw: +£1568 profit
  • Half-time Lay the Draw: +£1317 profit
  • 60 minute Lay the Draw: +£409 profit
  • Double Chance: +£749 profit
  • Second half goals: +£2518 profit
  • Overs: +£814 profit

In terms of what all that means in points terms is a little difficult to say as different staking is used for each system (and even within each system), ranging from as little as £10 up to over £100 stake liability.

However, clearly the results have been excellent (presuming they are accurate of course) in terms of achieving substantial profit across each of the strategies. The strike rate across the strategies has been high at 77% overall. 

The trades are provided via the Telegram app where you’ll receive notification of each selection.

We are quite excited by this one as we have always felt there is great scope to make profits from trading football, but with one or two notable exceptions (e.g. Goal Profits), we are yet to see any services actually produce trading profits under live trial conditions. 

As ever we will reserve judgement until we have conducted the trial but we are at least hopeful this could be a decent trading service. Results will be updated here as we go along as usual. 

In the meantime you can check out Banker Bets Football Trading Clubs for yourself here.

The Lay Bet Tipster – Final Update

Just a note to say this service has been discontinued. They had rather been labouring for a while and not quite producing the hoped-for results so it’s not a surprise to see it be discontinued. 

In fact it had been closed to new members for a while so the writing did look like it was on the wall. 

In they end they finished our trial 9 points down, which wasn’t a total disaster and probably would have warranted a neutral rating in the end. 

We have often said that lay betting is hard and there are very few profitable laying services out there – with the notable exception of those such as Little Acorns

However, for The Lay Betting Tipster it wasn’t to be so this goes on our defunct pile and we move on to the next review.

The Lay Bet Tipster – New Review

4th October 2022

Here at Honest Betting Reviews we have scoured the market far and wide over the last seven years in search of good lay betting services. 

Sadly to date we have only really uncovered one good laying service that is still going and that is Little Acorns.

In theory it sounds easy to bet on horses to lose – surely anyone can find horses that aren’t going to win today, or any other day for that matter if you consider some horses we have backed over the years.

It is actually much more difficult in practice and just like any other form of betting, it relies on finding value. 

One service that looks like it may have cracked the code of laying however is The Lay Bet Tipster, which we are starting a review of today. 

It has been proofing to the Betting Gods platform for six months now and in that time has made a highly creditable 74 points profit to 1 point lay bets. 

That’s a more than decent total to have amassed from lay betting and it has come with a high strike rate of 84%, which means a very high proportion of winning bets. 

In terms of the ROI, that currently sits at just over 8% which is pretty good considering the very high strike rate.

The monthly profits have been very stable and consistent too which is something we like to see. 

Tips are provided by a chap called Darren who is an accountant-turned-full-time professional bettor. 

He says he “started betting on horses part-time to gain a second income. Fast forward a few years and clearly, my accountancy skills paid off as I found a lucrative way to profit from the horses and make it my full-time income.”

Making an income from betting is no easy feat so it probably helps to have the skills and attention to detail of an accountant to make it work. 

In any event, the true test will be whether he can produce the goods under live trial conditions so we’ll get our review underway today and will update results here soon so you can see how he’s getting on. 

In the meantime you can check out the Lay Bet Tipster for yourself here.

Profit Maximiser Full Review

 

Profit Maximiser is a sequel to Mike Cruickshank’s Bonus Bagging, which we evaluated positively at Honest Betting Reviews.

How does Profit Maximiser compare?

We are delighted to report that it surpasses Bonus Bagging in quality. In fact, it can be aptly described as an enhanced version of Bonus Bagging. The potential to earn substantial profits has excited us greatly at HBR Towers!

Profit Maximiser is essentially a system that capitalizes on the free bet offers provided by bookmakers to entice new customers.

Under normal circumstances, one must place a specific bet before receiving a free bet from bookmakers. This means that if you’re unfortunate enough to lose both the initial wager and the free bet, you would incur a loss.

However, Profit Maximiser enables you to set up risk-free (or very low-risk) bets, using some clever techniques. 

In addition to exploiting bookmakers’ free bets, Profit Maximiser expands its scope to include casino, bingo, games, and slots free bet offers.

Profit Maximiser takes advantage of a variety of free bets, including slots and games.

Casino

Profit Maximiser allows members to capitalize on casino offers.

While Bonus Bagging primarily focuses on introductory offers from bookmakers, Profit Maximiser emphasizes ongoing offers, although there are still plenty of introductory offers to capitalize on.

The system provides comprehensive instructions, including training videos and examples, ensuring that you can’t go wrong.

As we mentioned in our review of Bonus Bagging, the strategy of creating risk-free bets undoubtedly leads to profit. By following the provided instructions, you are guaranteed to make money. However, the exact amount you can earn depends on a few things, which we will go into below. 

How much money can you make?

This question is akin to inquiring about the length of a piece of string—it primarily depends on the amount of time and effort you invest.

Numerous individuals within the Profit Maximiser Facebook community assert that they are generating substantial amounts of money through the system. Here are a few excerpts from posts within this community, which consists of over 5,000 members:

Facebook Comment

So over £40k this guy claims to have made. There are others – this lady claims she has made over £12,000:

Facebook Comment 2

And another one here claiming to have made over £50k in two years:

Facebook Comment 3

It’s unlikely that he would actually buy all 5,000 members a pint, as that would cost him approximately £15,000 out of the £50,000 he won!

During our trial period, we didn’t achieve those kinds of earnings, but we still had a very successful outcome.

To simplify matters, let us divide our earnings into two parts: the profits we made from the introductory offers and the profits we made from the ongoing offers.

get a 14 Day Trial for £1

Introductory Offers

So first up are the introductory offers. These are the offers made for opening a new account with a bookie or betting company. Here is how much we made from these offers:

 

Type Deposited Profit  Risk Notes
Bookies’ free bets £1,840 £886 Risk-free  
Casino £400 £263 Not risk free Returns will vary – not guaranteed
Casino (no risk) £100 £100 Risk-free  
Financials £375 £225 Risk-free For new spread bet accounts
Bingo £300 £258 Not risk free Returns will vary – not guaranteed
TOTAL £3015 £1732    

 

The returns from the introductory offers were excellent, although our results could have been slightly better since we already had a couple of bookmaker accounts.

Profit Maximiser offers over 60 bingo offers for you to enjoy.

It’s important to note that not all the offers are risk-free. Certain casino and bingo offers involve some level of risk, meaning your results may not be the same as mine. However, it is possible to make even more profits depending on your luck and the number of offers you participate in. Among the 60+ bingo offers available, we personally chose to play the top 20 or so.

As always, Mike provides clear markings and instructions indicating which offers are risk-free and which are not. This ensures that you have a clear understanding of the potential risks involved before proceeding.

 

Ongoing Offers

Once you have completed all the introductory offers, which can be time-consuming, there are ongoing offers to explore.

Mike regularly sends out emails highlighting the most lucrative offers. Additionally, there are two valuable options available to access other offers:

  1. The Profit Maximiser website features a calendar that lists all the offers for the day. It provides brief descriptions of the key points of each offer and includes links for more information.
  2. The Profit Maximiser Facebook group, consisting of 5,794 members, serves as an excellent online community where people share the best offers of the day.

Determining the exact amount of money one can make from these ongoing offers is challenging.

As seen in the aforementioned Facebook posts, some individuals claim to have turned it into a full-time profession, earning over £20,000 per year. While we cannot verify these stories, it is plausible considering the abundance of available offers.

In our own experience, we primarily focused on the best risk-free offers sent via email by Mike. These offers were usually quick to complete and yielded satisfactory profits.

Additionally, we participated in as many other offers as time allowed, prioritizing those that provided the best value with minimal risk. Here are the results we achieved during the month of October:

 

 Type Deposited Profit Risk
Mike’s e-mails £860 £536 Risk-free
Other offers £345 £201 Mixture of risk-free and non risk-free
TOTAL £1205 £737

 

A very good return of £737 for very little risk. Again, you could have just done the risk-free offers that Mike e-mails out and made over £500 no problem.

So overall from the introductory offers and ongoing offers, We made £2,469 profit during the trial. And the majority of it with no risk. Pretty awesome!

£1 million taken from Sky Bet in a day

 

Achieving £2,469 in virtually risk-free profits was indeed commendable. However, there was an opportunity for much greater success.

On September 8th, Sky Bet presented an offer called Red 10 that appeared too good to be true, except that this time it was genuine.

The offer revolved around their casino games, specifically the roulette game. Participants were required to place a minimum bet of £5 on the roulette game, and if the color red appeared 10 times, they would win £10.

Observant members of the Profit Maximiser Facebook Group noticed this exceptionally favorable offer and shared it on the forum for others to benefit from.

And benefit they did. People were able to continuously play and accumulate the bonus every time enough reds appeared. It was an opportunity that came close to being entirely risk-free.

The most remarkable aspect was that there was no limit to the number of times one could win the bonus. Consequently, individuals played throughout the day and night, with some winning approximately £6,000. Here are a few of the posts illustrating these achievements:

Sky Bet Facebook Comment

Sky Bet Facebook Comment 2

Sky Bet Facebook Comment 3

Sky Bet eventually removed the offer on September 9th, once they realized the extent of the situation. By that point, it is estimated that around £1 million had been claimed through the offer.

Whoever was responsible for creating the offer at Sky Bet seemed to either be exceptionally generous or remarkably careless. Nonetheless, savvy individuals took advantage of the opportunity and profited greatly.

Regrettably, we missed out on the offer entirely since we were not astute enough to check the Facebook forum that day. However, this incident underscores the value of the forum and the incredible offers that emerge there.

Sky Bet reportedly lost over £1 million to punters on a special offer on roulette

And apparently it isn’t the first time something like that has happened on the Facebook group either – so chances are it will happen again…and this time we will make sure we don’t miss out!

 

What to Watch Out For

While Profit Maximiser is an exceptional product, there are a few aspects to be mindful of when using it. Here are some key considerations:

  1. Time: Understanding the intricacies of the offers and how to optimize them requires a significant time investment. It is crucial to watch Mike’s training videos thoroughly and ensure a comprehensive understanding of the system.
  2. Record-keeping: Keeping track of the accounts you open, their details, and the offers you have already completed is vital. With numerous offers to navigate, it’s easy to forget important details, so maintaining a record is essential.
  3. Varying quality of offers: Not all offers are equally advantageous. Some may have high wagering requirements or complexity that makes them less appealing. Mike provides guidance on which offers to prioritize and warns about offers that may be more suitable for experienced players.
  4. Play strategically: Engaging solely in the offers without engaging in regular betting activities may lead to bookmakers limiting your accounts. It is advisable to incorporate “mug bets” (for more information, refer to the forum or consult Mike) to maintain account longevity.
  5. Time and patience: To achieve results similar to those who make a living from Profit Maximiser, time and patience are crucial. Initially, you need time to learn the system, and subsequently, you require sufficient time to participate in all the available offers.
  6. Location limitations: Individuals residing outside the UK and Ireland may have restricted access to some offers. For further information, it is recommended to contact Mike via the Profit Maximiser homepage.

It is important to be aware of these factors to maximize the effectiveness of Profit Maximiser and tailor the experience to individual circumstances.

OVERALL VERDICT – PASSED  

Throughout the years, we have encountered numerous betting systems and strategies, many of which make extravagant claims of wealth and the ability to quit one’s job. However, none of them have ever lived up to those promises—until we discovered Profit Maximiser.

Profit Maximiser is a game-changer as it delivers on its promise of consistent, risk-free profits, amounting to hundreds of pounds per month or even more.

When you really think about it, this achievement is quite remarkable. Even the most skilled tipsters can experience losing streaks or suddenly lose their touch, resulting in losses. However, with Profit Maximiser, you can eliminate the frustrations and concerns of traditional gambling and guarantee yourself a stream of free money.

The amount you can make ultimately depends on your efforts. We believe that you should be able to earn at least £1,000 from the introductory offers alone, followed by an additional £500 per month from the offers Mike sends via email.

A fellow Profit Maximiser member expressed our sentiments perfectly in this Facebook post:

Facebook Comment 5

With some effort, it is quite achievable to make £500 per month from Profit Maximiser. However, if you aspire to go beyond that and increase your earnings, the opportunity is definitely present. It will require time, dedication, and perseverance, but it is certainly possible. We recommend immersing yourself in the Profit Maximiser Facebook forum, learning from the training videos, and absorbing as much knowledge as you can if you wish to pursue this path.

Overall, we can confidently say that Profit Maximiser is the best betting product we have encountered thus far. We will continue to take advantage of the ongoing offers and aim to generate a steady income of £500 or more per month. Moreover, we may even delve deeper into the system to truly “maximise” our profits, if you’ll excuse the pun. 🙂

We wholeheartedly recommend Profit Maximiser, and considering the potential returns it can bring, the £97 investment may very well be the best money you ever spend.

Great news! You can now get a 14 day trial of Profit Maximiser for just £1 here.

Profit Maximiser – New Review

11th August 2015

Today we are commencing a Profit Maximiser review, a system that focuses on taking advantage of bonuses from the multitude of online betting sites.

This is a follow-up to Mike Cruickshank’s Bonus Bagging, which we are also reviewing at the moment.

Mike is widely known as an expert in exploiting bookies for their bonuses and is perhaps the doyen of this particular niche.

Profit Maximiser is a more advanced version of Bonus Bagging and covers everything from traditional bookmakers to casinos, bingo, spread betting and more.

The sales page promises “100% zero risk, tax free profits, any time, day or night.”

Sounds pretty good doesn’t it?

Well we will see if it can deliver that during our trial.

There are also various posts on the sales page of people claiming to have made £20k plus from Profit Maximiser, which seems pretty amazing considering it is meant to be risk-free.

Have we found something potentially life changing here or will it turn out to be another false dawn?

Only time will tell…

In the meantime you can check out Profit Maximiser here.

Anytime Goalscorer Bets – Full Review

 

Anytime Goalscorer Bets is a football tipping service from Neil MacDonald, the man behind Bookie Insiders Football, a successful football service we have reviewed and passed here at HBR. 

The Anytime Goalscorer Bets service is a relatively new offering, having been tipping since April 2022.

As the name suggests, the service is focused solely on the “player to score at any time” in a football match market.

These can be quite fun bets to follow as you are cheering on a player to score in a game and don’t mind who wins. The bet can still win in the last minute even if the player’s team is 4-1 down! 

As regular followers will know, we also tend to like services that focus on a particular niche and develop an edge in that niche, so this service definitely fits that bill. 

As with the main Bookie Insiders footy service, all these bets are in major European leagues where there is decent liquidity compared to the lower leagues.  

The odds of these bets can vary from odds-on shots right up to 5/1 or 6/1. 

Tips are sent out via Telegram and they are usually in batches for a weekend or midweek fixture list. 

We followed the service for an extended 15 month period, which gave us an excellent sample size of 1093 bets.

At the end of our trial, the service finished with a respectable 56 points profit, which was achieved with a 31% strike rate and 4% return on investment (ROI).

Those are solid, rather than spectacular, metrics. 

They were going well for most of 2022 and we were starting to get excited that this could really be a top-class footy service, but sadly things rather stagnated in 2023, with essentially no net gains between February and the end of the year. 

 

So in the end whilst a good profit has been generated and we are happy to award the service a PASSED rating overall, we would like to see if the service can kick on again and deliver clear profits over a sustained period before moving it into the top category of services here at Honest Betting Reviews. 

 

Service Breakdown

Ease of use: A notice is sent via Telegram when picks are ready and then members log in to a website to view the selections. With around 2-3 bets per day on average it’s a pretty manageable workload. 

Availability of prices: There can be a noticeable impact on prices after tips are posted as these are quite specialist markets and not as liquid as the main match odds markets for example. Having a good spread of bookie accounts is essential for making the most of this service.

Strike rate: The strike rate for our trial was decent at 31%, but would need to be a little higher to see the profit levels maintained at a more sustainable level. 

Advised Betting Bank: No bank is recommended for the service, but we used a 100 point bank for the purposes of our trial which was never in jeopardy. 

Subscription costs: The subscription costs at the time of writing are $29.99 per month. 

 

OVERALL VERDICT: PASSED

Anytime Goalscorer Bets is a football betting service from Neil MacDonald, the man behind Bookie Insiders Football. 

The service made a solid 56 points profit during our extended 15 month trial, which was good effort and worthy of a PASSED rating from us. 

However, most of the profit came in 2022 and things were rather in static in 2023, so we would like to see if they can kick on again in 2024 before putting this up there with the top footy services we have reviewed.

Anytime Goalscorer Bets – New Review

26th October 2022

Niche football betting markets have been attracting more attention in recent years, with services now offering tips on everything from shots on target, to corners, passes and more. 

One such niche service concentrates solely on the market of whether a player will score at any time in a match and that is Anytime Goalscorer Bets. 

This comes from the Bookie Insiders betting team, who regular readers will know we are big fans of with their other two main football and golf services both having passed trials on the site with flying colours. 

The Anytime Goalscorer Bets service is a relatively new offering, having been tipping since April this year. 

Since then they have amassed some impressive results, with 72 points profit made at a strong return on investment of 13%. 

The strike rate has been 33%, which is pretty good for these type of bets. 

As with the main Bookie Insiders footy service, all these bets are in major European leagues where there is strong liquidity.  

The odds of these bets can vary from odds-on shots right up to 5/1 or 6/1, just wherever there is value it appears. 

Tips are sent out via Telegram and they are usually in batches for a weekend or midweek fixture list. 

These can be quite fun bets to follow as well as you are cheering on a player to score in a game. Whether it comes off his backside or is a screamer from 30 yards doesn’t matter, just as long as it goes in! 

Anyway, we have already been proofing these tips for a while, since August in fact so will record results from then. 

Results will be updated here as we go along as always so you can see how things are going.

Golf Tips Checker – Full Review

 

Golf Tips Checker brings together golf betting tips from over 150 sources (i.e. tipsters) and finds the players that have been tipped the most across all those tipsters.  

They then publish the most popular tips in the handy form of a pie chart – which you can view on the website or on their Twitter here.

This is an example of their charts:

So you can see at a glance who the most tipped players are for an upcoming PGA Tour or DP World Tour event. 

It’s kind of a betting interpretation of the “wisdom of crowds” –  a novel theory popularised in this book by James Surowiecki.

Now not all the tipsters will be good of course, but the idea is that with over 150 experts and proven specialists with track records included, you should get a good deal of valuable knowledge in there.

We tracked the tips for over 15 months which gave us a very healthy sample size of 792 bets. 

Sadly in that time the tips didn’t deliver the results hoped for, with a loss of 122 points made at the end of our trial. 

That was achieved with a strike rate of 14% (including placed golfers) and a return on investment of minus 8%

So whilst this is a very interesting idea in theory and one we would have liked to see succeed, unfortunately it just hasn’t quite worked out in practice.

Ultimately it looks like you are still better off focusing on one or two top tipsters with proven track records like the Golf Insider of Ben Coley.

Perhaps there is just too much “chaff” in there amongst the 150 tipsters and not enough “wheat.”

Credit to the Golf Tips Checker service for tracking, posting and collating all those tipsters though. It is no easy feat and worthy of praise to do that for free.

The information can also be used to identify promising individual tipsters who crop up in their Twitter feeds, so there are other potential benefits to it. 

So we certainly wouldn’t want to knock their efforts nor to suggest Golf Tips Checker are not worth a follow in general. 

In terms of following the “most tipped players” charts though, it just didn’t work out for us during the course of our trial so that aspect has to go down as a failed rating sadly. 

 

Service Breakdown

Ease of use: The selections can be found via their Twitter feed or website. They tend to post the “most tipped” pie charts on Tuesday with a reminder on Wednesday, leaving plenty of time to get the bets on. With around 10-15 bets per week on average it’s a pretty standard workload for a golf service. 

Availability of prices: We didn’t notice any discernible impact on prices after tips were posted.

Strike rate: The strike rate for our trial was quite low at 14% (including placed golfers), and would need to be higher to generate a consistent profit. 

Advised Betting Bank: No bank is recommended for the service, but we used a 200 point bank for the purposes of our trial. As 60% of that bank was lost during the trial, a 300-400 point bank may be more advisable here to be on the safe side. 

Subscription costs: The tips are free to follow on the Golf Tips Checker Twitter (now X) and website. 

 

OVERALL VERDICT: FAILED

Golf Tips Checker brings together golf betting tips from over 150 sources (i.e. tipsters) and finds the players that have been tipped the most across all those tipsters.  

They then publish the most popular tips in the handy form of a pie chart. It is a golf tipping version of the “wisdom of crowds.” 

We were intrigued by the idea and whether it could work in practice but sadly at the end of a 15 month trial it just didn’t produce the hoped-for results with a loss of 122 points made. 

However, the Golf Tips Checker service deserves credit for tracking and amalgamating all the information, which can prove useful in other ways – for example in identifying promising individual tipsters. So hats off to them for that.

A few more winners like those and they may be able to get into profit for our trial.

They had almost got back to even at the time of our last update after being over 130 points down at one stage of our trial, but unfortunately have gone backwards again over the last month or so. 

Just shows once again how up and down golf betting can be and the importance of having a large betting bank and lots of patience.

Golf Tips Checker – Results Update

4th January 2023

There’s been a bit of a dip for Golf Tips Checker lately, with a loss of 12 points made since our last update.

That means they are now just 20 points down for our trial overall.

There have been a few good winners since our last update including the likes of Rozner, Lawrence and Fleetwood but they have all been at or below 20/1, so those wins have not quite been enough to generate a net profit. 

In any event, as we move into the start of the 2023 with the first event of the year, the Sentry Tournament of Champions, being played this week hopefully they can move things into the green soon.

Golf Tips Checker – New Review

30th August 2022

We are starting a new review of something a little bit different today…

Whilst we normally look at individual tipsters and betting systems, this time we are going to be looking at a slightly different approach. 

The service we are looking at today is actually an amalgamation of tipsters.

It’s called Golf Tips Checker and it brings together golf betting tips from over 160 sources (i.e. tipsters) and finds the players that have been tipped the most across all those tipsters.  

They then publish the most popular tips in the handy form of a pie chart – which you can view on the website or on their Twitter here.

For example this was from last week from the two main events on the PGA and DP World Tours – the Tour Championship and Omega European Masters:

So you can see at a glance who the most popular players that have been tipped are (and last week they had a winner with Rory McIlroy plus some placed finished with Im, Xander and Rozner). 

It’s kind of a betting interpretation of the “wisdom of crowds” –  a novel theory popularised in this book by James Surowiecki.

Now not all the tipsters will be good of course, but the idea is that with over 160 experts and proven specialists with track records included, you should get a good deal of valuable knowledge in there.

Will it work though? Well, they have apparently had 17 winning weeks out of 20 since starting up in May. Although it’s a small sample size, it does show some promise. 

In addition to the pie charts for the most tipped players, they also have a premium option for the first round leader (FRL) and early access to the most tipped players from £2.50 per month + VAT. 

So will be interesting to see how this one gets on. As we say, it’s something different and a bit of fun in one sense but also looks like it could be quite effective on the other hand. 

As usual we will update results here as we go along so you can see how the amalgamated tips are getting on. 

In the meantime you can check out Golf Tips Checker for yourself here.
