Where to Buy:

How Much Money Do I Need to Get Started?

A starting bank of 250-points is recommended by Betfan for this service.

How Much Money Can I Make?

The Football King’s website page suggests an average monthly profit of 8.36 points have been delivered between December 2017 and February 2019. The best month appears to be +30.49, with the biggest loss being 37.7 points.

How Much Time Will I Need to Make This Work?

This service takes minutes daily to follow when the tips are received, usually between 08:00 and 09:30 each morning.

Will I Need Any Equipment to Do This?

A laptop, PC, tablet or smart phone with internet access and access to a range of online bookmaker accounts.

Value for Money?

As always, I will wait for the completion of the review before offering a definitive comment here. A breakeven three months which results in a net loss after taking into account the cost of membership. There were signs of what this service could deliver and it is hard to make a definitive judgement based on a short trial and a close call in terms of profit. Obviously, based purely on the three-month review there would not be a VFM pass, but it comes with a caveat this time.

Quality of Customer Service?

Has the 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.


The Football King focuses on the major European leagues and as such is much quieter during the off-season between mid-May and early-August, although there are still bets when opportunities arise in other world football. During the main season you can expect somewhere around 35-45 tips per month.

The service uses a combination of singles, doubles and trebles and most bets are from the match odds, both teams to score, double chance or over/under markets.

Historically, stakes have been between one and five points depending on the perceived strength of the bet. Since the turn of the year, however, they have all been one- or two-point stakes.

Tips are generally delivered between 08:00 and 10:30 each morning by email, the Betfan app and in the members’ area of the website. However, there have been plenty of occasions when the tips email has arrived outside of this window.

The email follows the standard Betfan format and gives the date and kick off time, the match, the market, the selection and the advised odds. There is no rationale given for the selections.

The Football King’s website page shows historic results since December 2017 which amount to 133.76 points of profit (an average of just under nine points per month). The results appear very consistent with just two losing months (-37.7 points and -2.24 points) and three months over 20 points in profit.

Results – Month 1 (5th February to 4th March 2019)

The first month showed a profit of 8.01 points, well in line with the average monthly profit claimed. The ROI (Return on Investment) was a very healthy 30.81%.

There were 26 bets in total, comprising 18 singles and eight doubles. There were two successful doubles including one on the draw in both Palermo v Brescia and Eibar v Getafe which paid odds of 11.39.

The singles had a strike rate of 50% with nine successes and average win odds of 2.24 (c.5/4).

After deducting the cost of membership, the net return for the month at £10 per point was £47.70, an ROI of 16.31%. At £50 per point stakes the figures were £368.10 and 27.63%.

Results – Month 2 (5th March to 4th April 2019)

A much busier month in terms of singles, with 25 selections compared to last month’s 18. However, we ended up with three less winners and a strike rate of 24%, less than half of what was achieved last month (50%). The impact was a loss in the month of 13.75 points and a cumulative loss after two months now of 5.74 points.

There were just two doubles and a treble this month in terms of multiples and all were losers.

The average odds of the winning singles was higher this month at 2.6, helped by two tips on the draw at 3.45 and 3.5. The average odds of all singles was also slightly higher at 2.55 compared to 2.44. However, the drop in the strike rate was much greater than the gain in the average odds.

Another solid month looked on the cards until an unbroken run of 12 losing tips to the end of the month wiped 15 points off the profit. This run included one of the doubles and the treble. This sequence followed a spell of five winners from eight selections, which included the two draw singles, and had generated almost seven points of profit.

Although the loss of 5.74 points is not greatly significant in terms of the long-term performance of the service, the net loss needs to take into account the cost of the subscription fees as well (£64.80 for the two months).

Results – Month 3 (5th April to 4th May 2019)

We concluded the review with a profitable month. The 6.33 points gained in this period also carried the overall result for the review back into the black, albeit a tiny gain of 0.59 points. After taking into account the cost of the membership we do end the review with a net loss, which amounts to £91.30 at £10 per point stakes or £67.70 at £50 per point.

The 21 single bets in the month gave us the best strike rate during the review at 57.14% and generated 11-points profit. Alongside these there were five doubles and one treble, with just one of the doubles proving fruitful. A loss of 4.67 points in the month for the multiples.

The average odds of the winning singles this month was 2.3 (just over 5/4), helped by the 4.1 (over 3/1) odds on Montpelier to beat PSG. Over the course of the review the average winning odds on the single bets has remained just over 5/4 (2.34) and the strike rate on singles 42.19%.

Summary at End of Month 1

A solid first month from The Football King with returns in line with the historic averages for the service.

Summary at End of Month 2

A bit of a roller coaster this month with a good winning run followed immediately by the worst sequence of results so far in the review period. Overall there is no great damage done with just a 5.47% drawdown on the bank. The third month will be pivotal in deciding the outcome of the review.

Summary at End of Month 3

We’ve gained little insight into the potential of The Football King, with a breakeven review (small net loss after the cost of the membership) leaving me sitting on the fence with regard to an analysis. Plenty of positives and one significant losing run add up to one that needs a longer look to get a better feel for the long-term potential.
