The origins of this service are interesting. A client of the successful Bankers Bets service started developing his own expertise in research into the strong favourites markets in football and saw a niche for Asian Handicap selections the intention seemingly to achieve higher odds than the normal 1×2 market. Initially launched in January 2017 (but possibly was just testing and the current practice of backdating results has been applied) the service offered a free trial in April to hopefully demonstrate the potential of the service.
It is suggested that clients should use a bet broker such as Sportmarket to strike their bets thus limiting the potential for restrictions on individual accounts. Probably good advice if the service performs. If you are UK based then you probably need to check the selections against Oddschecker or a similar service as the Swedish origin of the tips often means bookmaker odds quoted for a book which may not be available here. The service is presented professionally with the intended bet clearly indicated in the emails. Results are updated and available from the site.
Over the period tips have been received – some 5 months now – a total of 106 recommendations have been received. Average odds have been 1.96 and ranged up to almost 3.0. The inevitable international break meant the initial trial period was extended as only a few tips had been received but since then we have seen further extensions and the current expiry date is 31st December.
A look at the results will show why the extended trials are being offered. Of the 106 tips advised 46 have been successful with 2 pushes and the service has lost 24.4 points or nearly 50% of the starting bank. We keep being told that the run is unusual but the profitable period they describe was before we started our trial and with a 5 months test patience is starting to wear thin. If you had put cash behind the tips 15p in every £1 staked would have stayed with the bookies so no real chance of their restricting your accounts!
Doubtless the service is genuine but the potential for unforeseen results is not peculiar to any one service and if you plan to pay a tipster he is meant to take all factors into account. If there were any paying subscribers they will be very disappointed and we have no choice but to classify the service as failed.
Update 30.11.2017: A much better month for the service with a 7 point profit achieved but even so there was a string of losers which would undermine the confidence of many. I expect that the trial members will be receiving an invitation to start paying ere long and I for one would not be taking it up.
Update 31/12/2017: A return to losses in December with a near 12 point deficit. The free trial has been extended again with the promise that no subs will be sought until the service is showing a good profit. I admire the persistence here but perhaps it is time to admit defeat and go back to the drawing board.
