Quality of customer service?
Initially excellent but appears to have stopped responding
The service approached us to undertake a review of their service which is a simple lay betting system based operation with possible selections advised by email. There is a low cost initial month’s subscription to allow potential subscribers to take a look at what is on offer.
The principle is quite simple – from a list of possible runners advised by email each day you should choose the Betfair favourite and lay it in running if its price drops 20% from BSP. You are thus laying a favourite at reduced odds and presumably just using accepted criteria around 66% of these should lose.
If only it were so simple in practice – a look at the spreadsheet will show that we have been advised of around 500 possible selections over the trial period and just 50 of these have become live bets. To make the selection manually would require constant attention and a very quick brain to calculate and place the lay bet should one of the advised selections become favourite so the only practical solution is to use a bot. If watching live then Bet Angel Fairbot or the Geeks Toy would probably allow users to make the bets but you would still be looking at significant time input and often not even seeing a bet. Betex Trader would certainly do the job and after an initial setting up of the criteria would need about 5 minutes input daily.
But even then the performance we have seen has 28 successful lays from the 50 runners (others did not get down to the required odds in running) and using the recommended 3.33% bank liability we have seen a loss of 13% (say 4 points) in the trial having recovered from a 25% draw down but the bank has not been in profit at any time. Not encouraging and things have been compounded further by a cessation of advices and any response to our emails from 31st March. The results disclosed on the site have not been updated since 31 January.
If you study the spreadsheet you will note that a second Favourites service was briefly introduced – here you would lay the second Betfair favourite in the specified races so long as the odds were 4.9 or less. There were 25 qualifiers here but after an initial success the system turned to losses with an 8% drawdown of the starting bank.
We have tried to ascertain what the future holds for the service but in the absence of any response to emails or selection advices we must assume that the service has been discontinued and would suggest that care is exercised should it be resurrected.
