Winning Betting Systems

These are the approved services that we have tested over an extended period and found to consistently generate a profit.

On this page we list those systems that have passed a trial here at Honest Betting Reviews. Every service we look at is subjected to a minimum of a three month trial, but these days we often conduct six month or even one year trials to get a really thorough look at a service.

Undertaking these more lengthy reviews allows us to see beyond the short-term peaks and troughs most betting services go through and to establish whether a strategy is genuinely profitable or not in the longer term.

Only a system that has demonstrated a clear edge over the market for a sustained period of time will be included on our Winning Betting Systems list.

It is by its nature a very selective and elite list. We have tested out literally hundreds of betting systems and tipsters over the years but only a small number have passed one of our trials. And even fewer have managed to sustain that profit over the long term and remain on our list. It is a rare skill to be able to beat the bookies and only a select few have managed to do it. Hence the relatively short list of winning systems you see on this page.

The list above allows you to see those systems set out by category, with the horse racing, football, sports, tennis and matched betting systems grouped together.

We have tested each and every service ourselves and continue to monitor and proof their results to ensure they still warrant a place on this list. If they should falter and no longer produce a profit, they will be removed from the list.


Gambling may involve an element of risk, but at Honest Betting Reviews we want to give you the best chance of success.

We have been testing betting strategies and systems for over twenty years in an effort to try and find successful ones.

When we set up this site in 2015, we wanted to bring you the expertise we had built up over previous years – the lessons we had learned and the pitfalls to avoid. Our aim has always been to provide a fully transparent, open service which is free for people to view. 

When we conduct trials of betting strategies we’ll test out all their features, collate data and draw honest conclusions. We record every tip and selection of the betting system or tipster exactly as they are given out, with nothing fudged or missing. All results are then recorded in a spreadsheet so you can see exactly how the system has performed. Our goal is to lay it all out there for you to inspect.

Having meticulously recorded all the results, we then analyse these in great detail for each system and examine other features to determine whether the system in question belongs in the winning category:

  • Authenticity of claimed results and trustworthiness
  • Average number of bets placed per week
  • Ease of use
  • Profit and loss
  • Strike rate (also known as win rate)
  • ROI (return on investment)
  • Bank growth (also known as return on capital)
  • Subscription costs

Our simple star rating system helps you shortlist systems at a glance, while clicking through to any listed item will give you a more in-depth review of the service.

Online betting systems may look to be authentic or profitable, but looks can be deceiving – especially online. You can lower your risk, save time and most importantly money when you use the approved sites from the above list.


In order to bring you the most accurate and honest reviews, we use all of these sites on a regular basis ourselves, and update our results whenever something changes.

If a site is no longer performing, it will be moved to our list of Neutral Betting Systems – or in drastic circumstances, even our Failed Betting Systems list.

On other occasions, a system or tipster may stop operating and it will then be moved to our defunct list. This can happen for a variety of reasons, such as that the tipster is unable to continue providing the service or the strategy is no longer available for sale for example.


Over the years we’ve tested countless online betting systems to ensure that we are always looking at the best returns on any bets we place.

By categorizing the results in winning, neutral and failed categories, we make it easy for you to see what works and what doesn’t. By choosing to use a system from our list of winning systems, you can be sure you won’t waste your time and money on sites that make false or misleading claims about their profits, but instead have had their results independently verified.

You can also check out our “Best of…” lists to find the very best tipsters in each sport, such as our “Best Horse Racing Tipsters” and “Best Football Tipsters” lists.

Winning Systems FAQs

Yes, our experts have tested all of the systems themselves. Each system undergoes thorough testing for a period of least three months, the results of which are recorded in a spreadsheet to ensure accurate reporting. This spreadsheet is accessible via clicking on the link to the review.
While we test for a period of at least three months, this is by no means the point at which we stop. We continue to test the winning systems to ensure they are still profitable in the long run; the longer the period of profitable testing, the more confident you can be in the results.
Each and every tip/selection is recorded exactly as given out by the tipster/system. We input the results into a spreadsheet which we then make available to you for absolute transparency. For horse and greyhound racing, we record results both at the prices advised by the system and Betfair SP, so you can see for yourself how profitable they are using both metrics.
Yes - we also include in our review how obtainable advised prices are and how quickly they get pushed in.
The amount you’ll require will vary from system to system, and depends somewhat on subscription costs. As a rule, for most of the systems, you could start off with a bank as small as £200 and gradually increase from there.
Yes, you can subscribe to as many as you like! Just as long as you have a big enough bank to cover losing runs for each service, there’s no limit to the number you use. You can determine how much this will be by looking through our reviews, where you’ll find our advised betting bank is listed.
Many of the winning systems listed on this page do have the option of a trial - please check the individual reviews for details.
At Honest Betting Reviews, we have created our own formula to test and review each system. Our comprehensive metrics include strike rate, profit and loss, and return on investment (ROI), all of which will help you compare results between systems. The ultimate measure of a system is its bank growth - i.e. how much it grew the money you started off with - so you can use that to compare how good the systems are.
Some of the systems such as Bet Hawk, Football Trading Alerts, and Betfair Renegade can be used exclusively on Betfair. Many of the others are profitable at Betfair SP, but this depends on the system; with some systems, you won’t make as much money as if you have bookie accounts. Please see the individual reviews for the comparison between advised results and Betfair SP results.
