The author first approached MMR in late 2015 to advise he was planning to launch this service and I have been monitoring progress ever since. The main development issue has been the reliability of the bot needed to operate the service and these were resolved last summer since when final testing has been taking place.
The service offers win betting advice for UK horse racing and identifies races where the Betfair favourite will have a good chance of success. The parameters are variable for the type of race, course and number of runners and also will check the odds range for those specifics. To allow the bet to be placed without the need to both refer to what would be a weighty manual and live racing (at the same time!) betting plans have been set up for each type of race (currently some 56 in total) and these are used by the BetexTrader bot which is a sophisticated software offering both pre and in play betting options. A review of the bot which can be used on all the Betfair markets not just racing can be found here. All bets are placed with Betfair.
A subscriber will need to install the bot on his device (we strongly suggest that consideration is given to using a VPS which will allow the service to run continuously without the need for the users main device to be powered) and then the service will send a folder containing the individual betting plan files which are saved on the Desktop or other suitable location on the device. A detailed instruction manual is provided going through the set up of the bot and how to load the daily selections. Any Betting Rant member should have no technical difficulty in using the service as it is no more complex than navigating a website. We recently discovered a VPS service that is designed for betting users and a review of this will be available shortly under the heading BettingDev UK VPS. (In addition to the continuity benefits use of the VPS allows a user to reach their server and thus this service from anywhere in the world where internet access is available.)
Each evening the next day’s potential races are advised via the members area of the website and can be loaded to the bot at any time convenient for the user. Once loaded the bot is activated and can be left to run through the day without attention. There is an auto restart facility within the bot should Betfair have any problems but a power cut would curtail the day.
Don’t let the tech stuff put you off – I know that all sounds a bit involved but it really isn’t and once you have invested the initial hour or so getting everything set up the time investment daily is minimal.
So what about the actual performance of the service? Well Peter has been using this system since 2012 and it has shown a strike rate of over 42% in that time. The bot refinements completed in August last year have allowed us to test the service as it will be presented for subscription and the results show 660 runners with 282 winners (42.73%) up to March 22 . The user determines their starting bank (min £200 suggested) with each qualifier staked at 2% progressively (the bot does this automatically) and the capital profit seen over the final test period has been 321%. Taking the return on the stakes invested this is a reasonable 9.35%. Should you wish to reduce your staking there are copies of the plans provided at 1% and 1.5% and you merely select the level that suits your risk stance.
The service covers all types of racing and the longer term historic results (will be available for download) indicate that the summer is more profitable but our testing to date has shown that things do stack up over the winter. The results since August 2016 can be seen here: Datakings Results
I have been impressed with the straightforward nature of the service in terms of how it is presented and used. Pretty much all the emotional input that you can have with a normal style tipster is removed as you do not know which horses are involved until the off. So you cannot decide to exclude a tip because you do not fancy that particular one (it always then wins doesn’t it!) and with the underlying statistical basis for the selections there can be every confidence that things will continue to perform well in the future. My contact with Peter has always been professional and he has shown great sense in waiting for the right time to launch the service. Because he is only interested in the practical side of the service he decided to approach Matt with a view to the service being promoted and administered at arms length thus allowing him to continue to ensure performance is maintained at as high a level as possible.
Those of you that have used bots in the past will know that there can be minor variations in the prices obtained when selected bets are placed. This is due to slight timing differences and the constantly changing Betfair markets in the seconds before the off. My monitoring of the performance has shown that the differences are marginal and over time cancel each other out but more importantly my bot produces the same results as the authors and the results shown on the site are in accord with my experience. In case you were wondering it is possible to allocate a portion of your Betfair account balance to be used by the bot for this service alone and so you can continue any other betting you might undertake without affecting your intended staking here.
We have a service with a proven past success launching here and there is every reason to give it a try. You can take a 3 week free trial of the bot to make sure it works for you and if you continue the subscriptions should soon be recovered. There have been swings in the performance but the long term trend has been upwards which is what really counts. I will continue to monitor and update performance reports every month or so but I recommend that you enter the brave new world of automated betting and see if the past can now be considered a guide to the future.
