Happy Days

How Much Money Do I Need to Get Started?

A starting bank of 200-points is recommended.

How Much Money Can I Make?
The Betfan webpage for Happy Days shows 137-points profit between launch in April 2019 and the end of July 2019. That’s an average of 34.25 points per month, but over a relatively short time span.

How Much Time Will I Need to Make This Work?

With just two or three single bets to be placed each day, and with all of the information clearly and concisely presented in the daily email, it’s a matter of five minutes work to get the bets placed.

Will I Need Any Equipment to Do This?

The standard fare of a laptop, PC, tablet or smart phone with internet connectivity and access to a range of online bookmaker accounts is recommended. You can walk into your local bookies and place the bets over the counter, but you are then restricting yourself in getting the best odds in terms of choice and timing.

Value for Money?

This is a question for the end of the review, and so I’ll make an assessment in three month’s time. With a final ROI of 13.21% (11.01% net at £10 per point stakes), two out of three months in profit and a total gain of 71.88 points to predominantly one-point stakes, I am happy to give Happy Days a VFM pass based on the review period.

Quality of Customer Service?

Has the backing and support of the Betfan platform. Requests for support are made via the support ticket system on the website. I have always received a quick and professional response when using the Betfan support system to set up reviews.


Happy Days only came onto the Betfan platform in April 2019. It is a simple win or each-way single service on British horse racing. The service is run by “James”, who we are told has over 50-years’ experience of horse racing and who, having retired six years ago, now devotes his time to his horse racing analysis.

There is an average of two or three selections per day, and there are tips most days. The majority of selections are to win but there are occasional each-way tips as well. All selections are placed as single bets.

Staking is on a scale of one to four points depending on the strength of the bet, the higher the perceived risk the lower the stake.

The daily tips generally arrive between 10:00 and 11:30 each morning, and as well as via the email notification they are also available in the members’ area of the web site and on the Betfan app. The email is in the standard Betfan format, so all of the pertinent information is presented clearly and is easy to follow. The addition of the racing colours for each horse is a nice touch.

According to the Betfan website, Happy Days has generated 137-points profit between its launch in April 2019 and the end of July. That’s an average of 34.25 points per month, but over a relatively short time span. There is no indication of the return on investment over this period, and all we are told about the strike rate is, “If you’re looking for a decent strike rate and well-priced winners then Happy Days is for you.”

Results – Month 1 (7th July to 6th August 2019)

A good start to the review for Happy Days, with winners scattered throughout the month and a longest losing sequence of just seven selections. The final profit for the period was 50.46 points.

There was a total of 83 selections in the month, of which three ended up as non-runners. The remaining 80 produced 33 winners (41.25%) and a further placed each-way tip. There were several days in the month with two winners, whilst 11th July had three winners from four selections.

The overall average odds of the selections was over 3/1 (4.21), whilst the winning selections averaged closer to 9/4 (3.29). Winners ranged from 8/11 (1.727) to 9/2 (5.5) during the month, whilst the average stake on the winners was 2.06 points. The average stake on all selections was very similar at 2.12 points.

The return on investment (ROI) in the month was a very healthy 28.67% and this nets down to 26.09% at £10 per point stakes and 28.15% at £50 per point, after deducting the cost of a month’s subscription.

Results – Month 2 (7th August to 6th September 2019)

Despite ending the month with a string of eight consecutive losers this was another profitable period for Happy Days. A further 31.25 points was added to the first months surplus to give us a cumulative gain across two months of 81.71 points. That average monthly return is well in line with the, albeit short, historic average claimed on the service’s website.

Although the strike rate of 30.21% this month was well down on last months, and there were significantly more selections, the profitability was maintained by an increase in the average odds of the winning selections to 3.99 (3/1). This was despite the overall average odds being identical to last month. The average stake on the winners was actually down from last month’s 2.06 points to 1.93 points, whilst the average stake generally also fell to just 1.73 points in the current period.

The sequence of eight losers at the end of the month is the longest of the review to date. However, to offset that we once again had several days with multiple winners, with 10th August producing two winners and a place from the three selections that day.

The return on investment (ROI) was a very respectable 18.83% this month, and the cumulative ROI is now 23.89%.

Results – Month 3 (7th September to 6th October 2019)

The final month produced a small loss of 9.83 points. However, this made little impact on the profits brought forward from the previous two months and we ended the review with a profit of 71.88 points.

The main reason for the loss this month was the fall in the strike rate to 25.6%. The average odds of the winning selections held up well compared to the previous two months at 3.6 (just over 5/2). The overall strike rate therefore ended at 31.23%, while the average odds of the winning selections across the full three months was 3.63, very similar to the final month’s figure.

The lower strike rate did result in some longer losing sequences this month, with sequences of eight (twice), nine and ten recorded. Previously the longest had been the eight at the end of last month.

The review period produced a healthy return on investment (ROI) of 13.21%. Once the cost of three months membership is taken into account his nets down to 11.01% at £10 per point stakes and 12.77% at £50 per point. There is also a 36% growth in capital (30.54%/34.86% net at £10/£50 per point).

Summary at End of Month 1

It’s still early days for this service, both in terms of the review and generally, but there are plenty of signs that it may well be one to watch.

Summary at End of Month 2

Another strong performance to back up the previous month and one which leaves us ahead of the historic average monthly profit levels. Despite still being in its infancy, there is much to like about this service.

Summary at End of Month 3

A small loss in the final month to close out the review, but final figures of 71.88 points profit and an ROI of 13.21% point to a successful review overall.
