It is the most feature-packed on the market and includes several unique features such as dedicated sport-specific trading elements and automation that gives it the edge over other offerings. It is available for both Betfair and Betdaq and whilst it only works natively on Windows operating system, it runs perfectly well on Mac using desktop virtualisation software such as Parallels.

There are multiple versions/levels of the software but i’m only going to be focusing on the Professional level in this review as it is the most full featured.

How Does Betfair Trading Software Work?

Betfair trading software allows sports traders to see the full depth of the markets through ladder interfaces. This helps traders analyse markets much more effectively whilst also providing them with the edge of instant one click order placement and greening up when hedging a trade. Bet Angel trading software provides a platform for novice users to seamlessly execute these standard functions whilst also offering more advanced users a string of extra functions.

If you’re new to sports trading and are not quite sure why traders use software then you may want to have a read of our Betfair Trading Software Overview.

What Do I Get with Bet Angel Professional?

One year’s subscription to the feature-packed Bet Angel trading software for Betfair gets you access to all of the features discussed in this review, including Soccer Mystic, Tennis Trader and Automation. There’s a 14-day free trial available, that provides access to all features, whilst the Betdaq version is completely free.

Bet Angel Professional may be the priciest Betfair trading software on the market but it is justified given the extra unique features it offers over its rivals such as Automation, Excel Integration and the specialised Tennis Trader.

If you want to take your trading to a professional level then Bet Angel will provide you with a significant edge in your sports trading.

What Features Does Bet Angel Offer?

This is a feature-packed software that is reliable and offers many more functions than all its competitors. Below is a full list of the its main features and what functions they allow a trader to perform:

Guardian + Guardian Watch List

Guardian is the market management tool within Bet Angel. It organises, manages and keeps track of trades across any markets that you have added to it. If you have any automation assigned to any of these markets it will work away in the background and implement them for you.

Guardian Watch List allows users to group together a set of markets and keep an eye on the pertinent information contained within them in one list.

Guardian and the Guardian Watch List are where users select the markets they wish to trade by bringing them up in a more detailed display such as the ladder or one-click interface.[/vc_column_text][vc_message]In Guardian you can also:

  • Load in Excel spreadsheets to export data from the markets you have selected
  • ‘Quick pick’ the horse racing card for the day ahead
[/vc_message][vc_column_text]Market Overview

When pulling up a horse race you’ll see the first few horses in order of favouritism for the number of ladders you have selected. But of course, you may need to keep your eye on what is happening to the other runners in the race – this is where market overview fulfils its function. You can see a range of trading information for every runner in the race contained in one overview window.

Advanced Charting

Charting allows you to cherry pick indicators and visualise them in your own customised format. You can create charts that layer indicator over indicator for a full graphical representation of what is happening in the market.  There are 5 pre-loaded charts which work perfectly fine if you would rather just use them instead of going to the extent of making your own charting.

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]Excel Spreadsheet Integration

Advanced traders may wish to use this function for an extra level of data analysis and manipulation to produce levels of functionality that may not currently be accommodated by Bet Angel. Users can pull and stream data from the Betfair markets directly into their own customised Excel spreadsheets.

Soccer Mystic

Soccer Mystic allows traders to model football matches pre-kick off so they can interpret how odds are likely to move. With strategies in mind you can get an accurate estimate of how the odds will be affected in relation to market events. For example, if you are looking to lay the draw you can get a rough idea of how much the odds will change if the away side scored first.

Tennis Trader

Bet Angel’s Tennis Trader is a specialist part of the software that allows tennis traders to manage their in-play positions whilst also modelling and profiling the movement of odds in relation to match events. For example, you can profile what will happen to the odds if there is a break of service and then make your own judgement on how much upside or downside risk your current position has. There is no doubt about it, if you are a tennis trader then this tool will give you a significant edge over the market.

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]Automation

Another unique feature of Bet Angel is the ability to fully automate your trading. Within Automation you can create rules files which will automatically carry out the trading instructions you put into it. Having used this feature myself I found it a very easy tool to get to grips with. This is the only software on the market which offers this advanced feature.[/vc_column_text][vc_message]Test any new automation rules files you create in practice mode first so that if you’ve made any errors then it will not cost you a chunk of your bank![/vc_message][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner css=”.vc_custom_1501938359369{border: 3px outset #ff9900 !important;}”][vc_column_text]Want to fast track your learning about Sports Trading?

[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]Reliability

The software is fast, responsive and provides great reliability. I have never had any issues with it and have never heard any mention of any issues from other users.

Level of Customisation

Bet Angel offers customisation in terms of charting and all the extra functionality that comes with being able to manipulate data through linking Excel spreadsheets up to the software. The Bet Angel display can also be customised so multiple tabs can be produced in pop out screens that can be placed anywhere on your screen. The look and feel of the ladder interface can also be customised in a manner of ways including text size and the colour and placement of indicators.[/vc_column_text][vc_message]If you’re a new trader tackling the horses pre-race then it’s recommended to use a refresh rate of around 750ms – any faster and it will be an information overload that will end up confusing your decision making.[/vc_message][vc_btn title=”Subscribe to Bet Angel” style=”3d” color=”warning” align=”center” i_align=”right” i_icon_fontawesome=”fa fa-mouse-pointer” add_icon=”true” link=”url:http%3A%2F%2Fwww.sportstradingtools.co.uk%2Fbetangelpro||target:%20_blank|rel:nofollow”][vc_column_text]Feature Differences

Bet Angel basic offers the standard functions you would expect in any sports trading software and includes the Advanced Charting feature. However, if you really want to get the most out of Bet Angel then it really is worth investing in the Professional package which includes all the features listed above. The likes of Tennis Trader will provide a serious edge to any aspiring professional whilst the Excel functionality is perfect for those that love to delve deeper into the data.

Support and Training

Having contacted the Bet Angel support team regarding a question I had about the software I found their responses to be very quick and helpful. We found a solution to the issue I had.

Training wise, there is an excellent visual user guide available on the company website plus numerous ‘How To’ videos recorded by Peter Webb for almost every aspect of the software by on their YouTube channel. The Bet Angel forum also has a support section where professional traders who work for the company will answer your queries about how to use features within the software such as Automation.[/vc_column_text][vc_message]The Bet Angel forum offers a wealth of information and has just had a user interface update in early 2017, as do Peter Webb’s YouTube videos. It’s a good idea to search these if you have a question about the software or about trading in general.[/vc_message][vc_column_text]

Pricing

There are numerous pricing options available for Bet Angel but annually it costs £149.99 and a 6-month subscription is £99.99.

I’m not sure if this is still the case, but when I subscribed there seemed to be an ever-permanent discount code displayed in Guardian when you loaded up the software. It may be worth signing up for the free trial first in the hope you can get the discount code which (if I remember correctly) £50 off the annual subscription.

There is a full featured, 14-day free trial which you should avail of to consider whether it is the trading software for you. For full pricing options, click here: https://www.betangel.com/pricing

Bet Angel on Mac and PC

The software only works natively on Windows operating system – so if you’re on a PC you’re good to go. If, however, you’re a Mac owner then you can either install Bootcamp and Windows 10 (which, quite frankly, is real a pain to do) or download Windows virtualisation software such as Parallels on which you can run Windows 10 directly from your Mac OS desktop.

I done both. You can expand the boxes below to view the pros and cons of both of my experiences:[/vc_column_text][vc_tta_accordion color=”peacoc” active_section=”0″ title=”Running Bet Angel via Paralells”][vc_tta_section i_position=”right” i_icon_fontawesome=”fa fa-arrow-circle-up” add_icon=”true” title=”Positives” tab_id=”1496862663654-f037e6d7-558291ad-5472″][vc_message message_box_color=”alert-success” icon_type=”pixelicons” icon_pixelicons=”vc_pixel_icon vc_pixel_icon-tick”]

  • Much easier to install and get Bet Angel working – took a maximum of 20 minutes
  • Could hear the software audio alerts during my Pre-Race trading
  • Loads up in a matter of seconds – no need to restart your Mac every time you’re preparing for a trading session

  • Must purchase both Windows 10 and Parallels (although it’s worth it if you don’t want to have the immense hassle of Bootcamp!)
  • Can be quite intensive on your Mac’s resources. My ‘desktop’ Mac sounded like it was going to take flight at times – however, this was my older 13” 2013 Macbook Pro I was using. I never had this issue on my 12” 2016 Macbook

  • Bet Angel worked pretty much seamlessly once it was finally installed
  • Bootcamp is free to install as it’s a Mac application

  • It took me around 4 hours to get Bootcamp installed as my Mac ran into numerous problems in which I had to scour Apple forums to find the answers to specific issues
  • You have to purchase Windows 10
  • Must turn your Mac off and reboot it to load up Windows, likewise if switching back to your Mac OS
  • The sound on Windows didn’t work through my Mac’s internal speakers so I had to connect it to Bluetooth all the time so I could hear Bet Angel’s audio signals during Pre-Race trading
  • You have to allocate at portion of your hard drive (called ‘partitioning’) to Bootcamp – this takes up at least 20gb

Final Thoughts

Bet Angel is a superb piece of kit that has been developed by professional sports traders for professional sports traders. The number of unique features and level of functionality it offers means that it is a fantastic option for anyone looking to invest in their trading set-up.

If you’ve heard a lot about another software you like, but you like this too then don’t worry – it’s ok to have both! Many traders use more than one software. Personally, I use Bet Angel for my Horse Racing and Automated trading whilst using Geeks Toy for my pre-match football trading. The bottom line is that if you choose Bet Angel you will be taking a step in the right direction to developing your own edge over the Betfair and Betdaq markets.[/vc_column_text][vc_message message_box_color=”success” icon_fontawesome=”fa fa-pencil”]Top Tips

  • When creating new automation files make sure to test them in practice mode to avoid any potential disasters!
  • Use a refresh rate of between 500-750ms when trading Pre-Race Horse Racing, any lower and it will be information overload (750ms is recommended for those starting out)
  • In regards to practice mode, I have it on good authority from The Intuitive Trader on Twitter (Follow him here: @_SportsTrading_) that “those new to trading should not use the software in practice mode for long as Betfair will delay their feed. Betfair do not like you testing a system or strategies without placing trades/bets.”
  • Related to this, it’s a good idea NOT to use Practice mode as a newbie trader as the mental reality of using practice mode vs using real money (even if you’re just using the minimum £2 stakes) is very different. When practising your trading it’s recommended you use Live mode with real money and just use the minimum £2 stakes.

[/vc_message][/vc_tta_section][/vc_tta_accordion][vc_toggle title=”FAQ”]Do I need software to trade Betfair?

For some sports and markets you don’t necessarily need it but it does greatly help. If you were attempting to trade Horse Racing pre-race without specialised trading software then you would find it almost impossible.

Does Bet Angel include a practice mode?

Yes – and you can carry out any automation tests in practice mode too.

They all come with the standard functions such as ladder interface and one click betting, but each one has their own unique selling points too. BetTraders works natively on both Mac and PC through a browser window so there’s very little set up to do. Just download, install and you’re ready to go.

How Does Betfair Trading Software Work?

Betfair trading software allows sports traders to see the full depth of the markets through ladder interfaces. This helps traders analyse markets much more effectively whilst also providing them with the edge of instant one click order placement and greening up when hedging a trade. RacingTrader’s trading software, BetTrader, provides a platform for novice users to seamlessly execute these functions.

What Do I Get with BetTrader?

The option of a monthly or one year’s subscription to the BetTrader trading software for Betfair. There is a full-feature 14-day free trial available. Users can also avail of a basic free version which works in grid mode only, however, this is very much a bare bones product and is next to useless if you’re looking to take your trading seriously.

What Features Does BetTrader offer?

Whilst it may not have as many features as it’s the two market leaders (Bet Angel and Geeks Toy) this is a software that is reliable and, because it’s works without any fuss on a Mac, it will appeal to Apple users. Below is a list of its main features and their functions:

Easy Mac Installation

Let’s start with the unique selling point of this software – It works on a Mac without any need to have any third-party complicated installing processes. This is a big edge that BetTrader has over it’s two biggest rivals, and it was a reason I subscribed to it even though I already had Bet Angel and Geeks Toy. If you’ve ever tried to install either of these on a Mac, or have read my reviews then you’ll know how much of an arduous process it is to install them.

All this hassle is negated by the fact that BetTrader works from your internet browser. So, it doesn’t matter what laptop or desktop you’re using – you can always access it by downloading the application, installing it and then just loading it up and logging in to it through your preferred browser.[/vc_column_text][vc_message]It’s recommended by the developers that you use the Chrome or Firefox internet browsers when using the software on either Mac or Windows.[/vc_message][vc_column_text]Level of Customisation

In comparison to Bet Angel and Geeks Toy this has very little in the way of customisation options. That’s not necessarily a bad thing – it means that it is ready to go straight out of the box. Bet Angel and Geeks Toy do to, but I found myself endlessly playing with their customisation options to get the setting and display exactly as I wanted.

Search Feature

This is one of my favourite bits about BetTrader, though I do think it could be slightly improved. On Geeks Toy you have to mouse click and navigate through menus to find the market you’re looking for. On Bet Angel you have to return to Guardian to search for the market and then load it into Guardian and then open it up.

On BetTrader you just type in the search box what you’re looking for and it presents the markets related to it. So, you could type in ‘Man Utd Overs’ and it will bring up all listed markets on Betfair related to this.

However, my only issue with this is that it doesn’t display the results in any logical order. Staying with the above search term, I could click onto the Over 2.5s and it could display the Over 2.5s for Man Utd’s game next week first, rather than for their next game. So, instead you’d have to type in the opposing team too – ‘Man Utd Everton Overs’. It’s a small gripe, but I think it’s a valid one.

However, let’s not underestimate the importance of this feature whenever you’re in a rush to find a market and stick that trade on. Every second can count and this saves you vital ones.

Another nice little touch is the ‘Next Horse Race’ button which will take you directly to, well, the next horse race…[/vc_column_text][vc_message]To open multiple markets just click on a market and it will display the new selection in a new tab automatically.[/vc_message][vc_column_text]Practice Mode

There is a full feature practice mode that can be switched on by an icon in the main menu side bar. This is a handy little feature as with Bet Angel and Geeks Toy you must log in and out to access this as a separate mode.

Free Mode

There is an option to avail of a free mode of the Sports Trading software, however, I’ve never actually tested this out. It may be of some use to beginners who want to trial what the software is like for longer than the 14-day free trial the company offer. But I imagine it might actually be a hindrance to your trading considering the two biggest drawbacks are that you can’t use the Ladder Interface and that it has a limited speed of data refreshes. This means you will receive slow price updates – which is fine for markets where the odds movement is not rapid and depends on an event happening (such as a goal in a football match). But for something like Pre-Race Horse Racing these two limitations make the free mode next to useless.

Support

The BetTrader website has an extensive manual/training videos on how to use the software. They also run several courses a year in cities all over the UK, Ireland and Australia which are run by Tony Hargraves (also known as The Badger).

Click here to view current availability of courses.

Pricing and Feature Differences

Pricing is £9.99 a month or £99 for the year – which equates to £8.25 a month and saves you over £20 a year. Both tiers offer the full featured packages.

The company previously only offered a 7-day free trial and in my opinion this was too short a time to decide whether you truly want to fully commit to any product or service. Thankfully they have now bumped this up to a 14-day free trial. The trial also gives users access to the full featured product.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]

Final Thoughts

BetTrader is a suitable software for any beginner trader due to its ease of use and its low cost. Personally, I find it slightly limited in that it doesn’t offer detailed customisation nor any form of automation but that does not mean it is a bad software. If these things are not important to you then it is more than suitable.

If you are on a Mac and don’t want the hassle of working out how to install Bet Angel or Geeks Toy on it then this will do the job without any fuss.[/vc_column_text][vc_btn title=”Download BetTrader” style=”3d” color=”warning” align=”center” i_align=”right” i_icon_fontawesome=”fa fa-download” add_icon=”true” link=”url:http%3A%2F%2Fwww.sportstradingtools.co.uk%2Fbet-trader||target:%20_blank|rel:nofollow”][vc_message message_box_color=”success” icon_fontawesome=”fa fa-pencil”]Top Tips

Whilst it only works natively on Windows operating system, it runs perfectly well on Mac using a multi-boot utility tool called Bootcamp.

How Does Betfair Trading Software Work?

Betfair trading software allows sports traders to see the full depth of the markets through ladder interfaces. This helps traders analyse markets much more effectively whilst also providing them with the edge of instant one-click order placement and greening up when hedging a trade. Geeks Toy trading software provides a platform for novice users to seamlessly execute these functions.

If you’re new to sports trading and are not quite sure why traders use software then you may want to have a read of our Betfair Trading Software Overview.

What Do I Get with Geeks Toy?

The option of a 3 month or one year’s subscription to the Geeks Toy trading software for Betfair and this includes all of the features discussed in this review. There is a full-feature 14-day free trial available, whilst the Betdaq and Matchbook versions are completely free to download and use.

Geeks Toy is an incredible piece of software that is reliable and fully customisable whilst also being one of the cheapest on the market.

It is a perfect place to start for anyone wishing to take their sports trading seriously through using dedicated software.

[/vc_cta][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”2/3″ css=”.vc_custom_1502201364870{border-right-width: 1px !important;border-bottom-width: 1px !important;border-left-width: 1px !important;border-left-color: #cecece !important;border-left-style: solid !important;border-right-color: #cecece !important;border-right-style: solid !important;border-bottom-color: #cecece !important;border-bottom-style: solid !important;border-radius: 1px !important;}”][vc_column_text]

What Features Does Geeks Toy Offer?

Whilst it may not have as many advanced features as its nearest competitor, Bet Angel, this is a cheaper software that is fully customisable, reliable and perfect for any newcomer to sports trading. Below is a list of its main features and their functions:

Full Customisation

The level of customisation in Geeks Toy is incredible and is one of the standout features that makes people love it so much. It really is a toy for sports trading geeks. When I first installed it, I spent a couple of hours just playing with it and setting it up in the way that suited me. There are so many ways you can customise the look and how information is displayed.

When I’m trading a sport other than horse racing I use Geeks Toy on my ‘desktop’ 13” Macbook Pro, which is connected to two 21” monitors, through an application called Bootcamp. But for the majority of the time i’m using it on my 12” Macbook where the level of customisation is an incredible benefit due to my limited screen space.

Estimated Queue Position

Another standout feature is the Estimated Queue Position setting. As the name suggests this will give you an estimation of the amount of money in the queue waiting to be matched before yours. This is an awesome feature that will inform you how close you are to getting your money matched – allowing you to make a decision on whether to keep it there or move it – this is of particular benefit when scalping.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]In the example image below, you can see that i’ve placed a £25 lay bet at odds of 2.14. On the right, you can see the volume traded at each price – however, for this price it is now displaying an estimate of the amount of money waiting in the queue to be matched (£122) before my £25 order starts to be matched.

I can still roughly tell how much money has been previously traded at 2.14 as the green fill bar is almost at the same capacity as the price above (2.16) where £5.4k has been matched. I can estimate that £5k has been matched at 2.14 and that my £25 has a good chance of being taken.[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”2053″ img_size=”full” add_caption=”yes” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_border” onclick=”link_image”][vc_message]Estimated Queue Position is an extremely useful feature for those who prefer scalping.[/vc_message][vc_column_text]Multi-Market Trading

When you open a market, it pops up in the form of a module window. If you want you can have as many of these modules open at any one time (providing your computer can handle it). You can arrange them anywhere you want on your screen and even minimise them whilst keeping the tab in the background, ready to maximise when you want to interact with that market again.

Reliability

Geeks Toy is fast, responsive and provides great reliability. It displays any issues with the API status on the overview panel. There has only been one issue that I remember during my usage and it was actually turned out to be a fault that Betfair had created by mistake. Yes, really. Betfair can be that incompetent at times.

[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”2054″ img_size=”full” add_caption=”yes” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_border” onclick=”link_image”][vc_column_text]Available for 3 Major Betting Exchanges

Geeks Toy is available for Betfair, Betdaq and Matchbook with the only real differences being the look and a couple of nuances that are unique to each particular betting exchange.

Live Video

The software pulls in the live video from Betfair for each event so you can watch it in your own Geeks Toy pop-up module instead of having to click onto Betfair each time a new race starts. Unfortunately, this hasn’t worked on my Mac version… Nor does it work on my Bootcamp version of Windows on my ‘desktop’ Mac. But it definitely works for Windows PC users.

Charting

You can pick from a range of charting options and display them however you want. I really like how customisable the Overview chart is. You can also have technical charts such as Weight of Money, Traded Volume, Price Line, Price Candle and MACD charts above, below or to the side of your ladders. The Betfair charts stay either above or below.

Support and Training

I’ve never had to ask The Geek for support but I know he and users of the software will usually answer any queries on the forum. However, the user-guide is so in-depth it’s likely you will find your answer there.

Training is available in the aforementioned user-guide along with numerous videos on YouTube that have been created by fanatical users of the software. Professional trader Caan Berry, who many of you may already be familiar with, has a few videos on his set-up on his YouTube channel.[/vc_column_text][vc_video link=”https://youtu.be/sCbVfEEv8Og” el_width=”80″ align=”center”][vc_message]Clicking the ‘?’ on any module taskbar and it will display information related to what is being displayed.[/vc_message][vc_column_text]

Pricing

The software is one of the cheapest on the market – but that is no reflection on its quality. In fact, the creator of the Geeks Toy software built it for his own personal use initially and, at the beginning, allowed other people to use it for free until they told him that he should really start charging for it. He was reluctant to do so but did in the end. What a nice guy. But when software is this great you would feel bad for not contributing to the creator.

Geeks Toy is available for £20 for 3 months or £60 for the year – which is just incredible value. You can also avail of a 14-day free trial. The Geek also runs a special one or two times throughout the year where existing customers can buy a license to the software for life – I believe this is around £120. Again, this is immense value being offered here.[/vc_column_text][vc_btn title=”Get the Free Trial” style=”3d” color=”warning” align=”center” i_align=”right” i_icon_fontawesome=”fa fa-mouse-pointer” add_icon=”true” link=”url:http%3A%2F%2Fwww.sportstradingtools.co.uk%2Fgeekstoy||target:%20_blank|rel:nofollow”][vc_column_text]

Geeks Toy on Mac and PC

Geeks Toy is only available natively on Windows PCs. However, I have been able to get it working natively on my Mac through a combination of persistence and Wine (not that type of wine, unfortunately). Wine is an open source software that facilitates the running of Windows software on a Mac.

My goal was to write up a guide for STT of how I was able to achieve this, but having tried to replicate the process months later I wasn’t able to install it and get it working. These are the links for the information I used when installing it for anyone who wants to give it a go themselves:

Installing Geeks Toy through Wine, Geeks Toy Forum: http://www.geekstoy.com/forum/showthread.php?8064-Geeks-Toy-now-runs-on-Apple-OSX&p=112540&viewfull=1#post112540
Wine Installation Instructions: https://www.davidbaumgold.com/tutorials/wine-mac/[/vc_column_text][vc_message](I will pay £25 to anyone who successfully uses Wine to install Geeks Toy on their Mac and writes down the exact notes of the process of how they done it. You can get in contact with me via email, Facebook, or Twitter to let me know you’re giving it a crack)[/vc_message][vc_column_text]As said Geeks Toy only works natively on Windows – so if you’re on a PC you have no issues. If you’re a Mac user, however, then you have two options: either install Bootcamp and Windows 10 (which is an arduous process) or attempt to install it using Wine. Unfortunately, it does not work using Parallels, or at least I couldn’t get it to.

I have installed it via both methods. You can expand the boxes below to view the pros and cons of both of my experiences:[/vc_column_text][vc_tta_accordion color=”peacoc” active_section=”” title=”Running Geeks Toy via Bootcamp”][vc_tta_section i_position=”right” i_icon_fontawesome=”fa fa-arrow-circle-up” add_icon=”true” title=”Positives” tab_id=”1496671897364-422aafa8-8b7a96e0-3b9f”][vc_message message_box_color=”alert-success” icon_type=”pixelicons” icon_pixelicons=”vc_pixel_icon vc_pixel_icon-tick”]

  • Worked without any issues once it was finally installed
  • Bootcamp is free to install as it’s a Mac application

  • It took me around 4 hours to install Bootcamp as I encountered numerous problems which I had to scour Apple forums to find the answers to
  • You must purchase Windows 10
  • Must reboot your Mac every time you want to load up Windows
  • The sound on Windows didn’t work through my Mac’s internal speakers so I had to connect it to Bluetooth to enable me to hear audio signals
  • You must allocate a portion of your hard drive (called ‘partitioning’) to Bootcamp – this takes up at least 20gb
[/vc_message][/vc_tta_section][/vc_tta_accordion][vc_tta_accordion color=”peacoc” active_section=”0″ title=”Running Geeks Toy via Wine”][vc_tta_section i_position=”right” i_icon_fontawesome=”fa fa-arrow-circle-up” add_icon=”true” title=”Positives” tab_id=”1496862663654-f037e6d7-5582″][vc_message message_box_color=”alert-success” icon_type=”pixelicons” icon_pixelicons=”vc_pixel_icon vc_pixel_icon-tick”]
  • Loads up in a matter of seconds – no restarting your Mac every time you’re preparing for a trading session
  • Free – no purchasing of Windows 10 or any virtualisation software like Parallels. Wine is open source and free
  • Could hear the software’s audio alerts
  • It’s really cool opening your Macbook and having this neat looking little software running!

  • It’s one hell of pain to install via Wine if you’re not a tech geek. I am most certainly not one but persevered until I got it working. It did take about 2-3 hours though
  • Can be quite intensive on your Mac’s resources if you have multiple markets open at one time

Final Thoughts

I love Geeks Toy. I also love using Bet Angel too. They both provide different features and functions for me and I’m happy to switch between one or the other. Geeks Toy is my favourite software for football trading due to its handiness on my Macbook but in truth I could use it for just about any sport I wanted to trade. Existing users are often fanatical about it and there’s good reason for that. If you’re new to sports trading it comes highly recommended.[/vc_column_text][vc_btn title=”Download Geeks Toy” style=”3d” color=”warning” align=”center” i_align=”right” i_icon_fontawesome=”fa fa-mouse-pointer” add_icon=”true” link=”url:http%3A%2F%2Fwww.sportstradingtools.co.uk%2Fgeekstoy||target:%20_blank|rel:nofollow”][vc_message message_box_color=”success” icon_fontawesome=”fa fa-pencil”]Top Tips

[/vc_message][/vc_tta_section][/vc_tta_accordion][vc_toggle title=”FAQ”]Do I need software to trade Betfair?

For some sports and markets you don’t necessarily need it but it does greatly help. If you were attempting to trade Horse Racing pre-race without specialised trading software then you would find it almost impossible.

Does Geeks Toy include a practice mode?

Yes.[/vc_toggle][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_widget_sidebar sidebar_id=”gp-sports-trading-sidebar”][/vc_column][/vc_row]

 

RacingTrader’s Sports Trading Masterclass

RacingTrader’s Sports Trading Masterclass Details:

[/vc_message][vc_column_text]RacingTrader’s Sports Trading Masterclass is outlined as a day that will cover the following areas:

  • How to improve your understanding of analysing sports markets and identify trading opportunities
  • Implement trading strategies using the analysis
  • Psychology of trading
  • Money management and discipline
  • In-play trading opportunities
  • Reading racing markets with minimal knowledge
  • Introduction to trading software and its importance
  • And finally, how to move your sports trading from a hobby to having a serious approach

At the outset, Tony clearly says that the workshop will encompass his nine years of trading experience condensed into one day to show delegates the best way to get started, then improve, then succeed. He clearly stated that this would most definitely not be a get rich quick scheme and we’d need focus and dedication to make our sports trading profitable.

*Editor’s Note: This course was attended by someone other than Neal, who has done most of the reviews on this site. The reviewer wanted to remain anonymous.*

Background Information to RacingTrader’s Sports Trading Masterclass 

With Horse Racing being one of the most popular sports to trade on Betfair for the fact it’s on daily, has great liquidity and presents hundreds of opportunities in a week it’s no surprise it is the starting point for many just starting out on their sports trading journey. There are courses run by a number of professionals who have made it their professional living – a dream that many of us aspire to. This course isn’t solely focused on Horse Racing but does cover some other sports too – mainly Cricket and Football.

Who Is Tony Hargraves?

Tony Hargraves, also known as ‘The Badger’, is an Australian sports trader who resides in the UK. Tony has been trading on Betfair since 2004 and turned professional in 2008. As an active member of the RacingTraders forum and their BetTrader software he was prompted to start giving trading courses around the UK. As well as trading Horse Racing pre-off and in-play, he also focuses on UK Football and international Cricket.

Tony can be heard giving an overview of the BetTrader’s software in the video below:

The course was booked by email and confirmation and correspondence all conducted by email. Pre-course information was sent out well in advance of the course and contained full details regarding timings, address location and what to expect.[/vc_column_text][vc_btn title=”Visit RacingTraders.co.uk for Course Availability” style=”3d” color=”warning” align=”center” i_align=”right” i_icon_fontawesome=”fa fa-graduation-cap” add_icon=”true” link=”url:http%3A%2F%2Fwww.sportstradingtools.co.uk%2Fracingtraders-courses||target:%20_blank|rel:nofollow”][vc_column_text]

The Day of the RacingTrader’s Sports Trading Masterclass

The course started early at around 9am and the morning session began with what the foundation principles of trading are and what it essentially is. Tony then showed us images of how his office was now set up and how it had evolved over the years to adapt with circumstances, trading styles and experience.

We then moved on to cover psychology and mindset with some excellent real life examples that required us to self-evaluate what our response in the situation would be. This very quickly helped to show the element of discipline that a sports trader requires and let us determine if at that point we were actually a ‘trader’ or a ‘punter’.

We covered an introduction to strategies for both horses and football, to give us a flavour of how to find value within the markets. Tony covered a lot of the strategies he regularly uses and showed us to how to put our research in to play in respect of the sport and markets we wanted to trade. There was reference to other sports too and we were given lots of examples of how you could begin trading these sports based upon current level of knowledge of the sport.

Another section included graphs and what everything meant, showing what can be interpreted and learned from them.

Next, we focused on on money management and what you should and shouldn’t do. Tony stressed the importance of exiting trades and showed us examples of what you should do and how to do it in certain given circumstances.

Lunch was excellent and it was also an opportunity to talk with other attendees who all seemed to be at different stages of either getting involved or being involved with sports trading.

After lunch, we had a live horse trading session which was great to see as it clearly demonstrated the elements that needed to be focused on and closely watched. Tony talked to us about how to watch races and the different types of feeds, how he trades in-play himself and angles to look for both for advantage as well as pitfalls.

I made notes during the day for my own reference but we were told at the outset that we’d be receiving a set of course slides so that enabled us to not have to focus on writing every single piece of information down. There really was a lot of valuable information shared during the day but like any course, it’s down to the delegates to work with it and put it in to play after the day has ended.[/vc_column_text][vc_widget_sidebar sidebar_id=”gp-sports-trading-for-beginners-widget”][vc_column_text]

After Course

Three days after attending the course a comprehensive email was sent out including a full set of the PowerPoint slides used during the day, links to download copies of the Sports Trader eBook, Racing Trader eBook and Strategy eBook (other eBooks that are now available were written after the course was undertaken), a link to Football Form Labs and an offer of a free month of access to the BetTraders software. There was also a link to an explanation of how Tony uses Football Form Labs to inform his Football trading and a spreadsheet with prices as a percentage.[/vc_column_text][vc_cta h2=”What Edge Will It Give Me?” txt_align=”center” color=”white” add_button=”bottom” btn_title=”Check Current Course Availability” btn_style=”3d” btn_color=”warning” btn_align=”center” btn_i_align=”right” btn_i_icon_fontawesome=”fa fa-graduation-cap” btn_add_icon=”true” css=”.vc_custom_1500991489671{border-top-width: 5px !important;border-right-width: 5px !important;border-bottom-width: 5px !important;border-left-width: 5px !important;background-color: #81d742 !important;border-left-color: #cecece !important;border-left-style: outset !important;border-right-color: #cecece !important;border-right-style: outset !important;border-top-color: #cecece !important;border-top-style: outset !important;border-bottom-color: #cecece !important;border-bottom-style: outset !important;border-radius: 5px !important;}” btn_link=”url:http%3A%2F%2Fwww.sportstradingtools.co.uk%2Fracingtraders-courses||target:%20_blank|rel:nofollow”]

This course is perfect if you’re new to sports trading or are looking to find out what sports trading can offer and how to set about getting involved in sports trading. What it isn’t is a day of methodology and defined strategies that you can walk out the door with. Lots and lots of methodologies are covered during the day but with the emphasis that these need to be taken away and practiced in line with all the other information covered.

[/vc_cta][vc_column_text]

Final Thoughts on the RacingTrader’s Sports Trading Masterclass

Tony went to great lengths to get the participants to do lots of self-examination and actually question themselves as to whether or not they were cut out to be a sports trader.  The RacingTrader’s Sports Trading Masterclass is all about what you need to get involved in trading, the type of mindset and mentality you need and a ‘warts and all’ insight into both the good and bad as, after all, trading isn’t right for everyone.

I personally really enjoyed attending the course and as someone who was completely new to trading, the workshop provided an in-depth insight as to what could be achieved and how to get started. If you’re looking for pre-determined set methodologies then this isn’t really what the workshop is about but if you want to know more about how to get started or really improve on the sports trading journey and how to go about it then this course is ideal.

  • Watch as much video content as you can before attending the course – especially the YouTube content that Tony has put online – as well as the information on the RacingTraders website
  • Familiarise yourself with trading software as the course clearly demonstrates the edge that this gives when undertaking sports trading
  • Whilst this course is one of the better courses for anyone who is completely new to sports trading, if you haven’t already then check out these three books will prepare you for what sports trading entails before you book any courses

  • The course focused on the important elements need to become a profitable long term sports trader. Tony is extremely knowledgeable, was very attentive through the day and was very generous with the knowledge that he shared with the room
  • All delegates were also invited to join Tony for a drink and live football trading session after the course too which was a nice extra

Peter Webb (Bet Angel) Trading Masterclass

[vc_row][vc_column][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”2/3″ css=”.vc_custom_1496618645954{border: 1px solid #cecece !important;border-radius: 1px !important;}”][vc_message message_box_style=”solid-icon”]

Peter Webb Trading Masterclass Details:

[/vc_message][vc_column_text]Peter Webb’s Trading Masterclass is a one day course held at the Bet Angel headquarters in Hook, Southampton that offers traders the chance to learn from Peter Webb, professional sports trader since 2000 about all aspects of Betfair Trading.

Background Information to Peter Webb’s Trading Masterclass

Horse Racing is a massive industry and one of the most popular sports to trade on Betfair for several factors:

  • Tradable on almost every day of the year
  • Numerous opportunities daily due to the number of races
  • Highly liquid markets

It is the first sport that many of those new to trading on Betfair attempt to learn because of these factors. In my opinion Horse Racing is the true art of sports trading because you’re relying mainly on technical skills to read and react to the market as it is happening live. Whereas with many other sports, like football, a lot of research is done beforehand and is dependent on the events that occur in the football match. With pre-race trading you have much more control over the outcome as it is less reliant on external factors and more about your ability to read and trade the markets as you seen them.

Who Are Bet Angel and Peter Webb?

Peter Webb started using Betfair almost since the first day it came online, initially he used the platform for making risk-free profits through arbitrage betting until he realised that instead of backing with a traditional bookmaker and laying on Betfair he could complete the entire process on Betfair itself.

This led him to partner up with a software developer to create a trading software with an interface that would visually display relevant information he felt was needed to trade the sports markets to its full potential. Along with GeeksToy, Bet Angel is the most popular software on the market.

Peter has become a renowned name in sports trading due to his company’s videos on YouTube… and the small matter that he is one of the few millionaire Betfair traders.

Booking Peter Webb’s Trading Masterclass Course

In your early attempts to become a Betfair trader it becomes apparent that there is so much knowledge you need to gain. It was a few months into my trading journey that I felt the time was right to head over to Southampton and attend one of Peter Webb’s Trading Masterclass courses. Having previously attended the Bet Angel Horse Racing Workshop back in June (read that review by clicking here) and spent months implementing many of my learnings from that day I had now built up so many other questions about Sports Trading that I wished I had the answers to and so I booked the course at a cost of £400 via their bettingexchangeacademy.com website.

Pre-Course

The process followed just the same as my previous course booking with an email of the terms and conditions and a general overview of the course.

After sending an email back agreeing to the terms and conditions attendees are sent further details relating to the location, directions, airports and accommodation. Being from Belfast, I then had to get booking my flights and hotel. I was happy with the White Hart Hotel that I had stayed at last time so I booked myself in to it again.

The Day of Peter Webb’s Trading Masterclass Course

Peter started off talking briefly about some of his key tips for success in becoming a professional sports trader:

  • Discipline and practice will lead to better execution
  • Discipline and your psychology are paramount
  • The combination of 1) Money Management 2) Strategy and 3) Tactics and Psychology are the three main aspects that are key to making yourself a successful sports trader

One of the guys asked Peter what his recommended books were for this and, rather surprisingly, he answered that he had never read ‘Trading in the Zone’ by Mark Douglas. He instead suggested two books – Thinking, Fast and Slow by Daniel Kahneman (which is featured in our ‘Trading Psychology: 5 of the Best Books’ blog) and Mindware (Peter couldn’t remember the name of the author so i’m not entirely sure if it’s the book by Richard Nesbitt or the one by Andy Clark.[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”1608″ img_size=”medium” add_caption=”yes” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_border” onclick=”custom_link” img_link_target=”_blank” link=”http://amzn.to/2wkXbiC”][ult_dualbutton btn_border_style=”solid” button1_text=”Buy from Amazon” icon_link=”url:http%3A%2F%2Famzn.to%2F2wkXbiC||target:%20_blank|” btn1_background_color=”#eaca7a” btn1_bghovercolor=”#eabd4b” icon=”Defaults-shopping-cart” icon_align=”right” button2_text=”Buy from iBooks” btn_icon_link=”url:https%3A%2F%2Fgeo.itunes.apple.com%2Fgb%2Fbook%2Fthinking-fast-and-slow%2Fid464822423%3Fmt%3D11||target:%20_blank|” btn2_background_color=”#ffffff” btn2_bghovercolor=”#f1eafc” btn_icon=”Defaults-book” divider_text=”Or” btn_border_radius=”1″][vc_column_text]This led to a discussion about how Peter and many professionals at the top of their game view trading, whether it’s sports trading or financial trading:

  • The best trades come from being a contrarian
  • Most of trading is counterintuitive
  • Showing control is a useful trait whereas being reactive is not
  • If you can understand what the brain is doing in the heat of trading then you can control it into reverting to plan and structure
[/vc_column_text][vc_btn title=”Read the ‘Trading Psychology: 5 of the Best Books’ blog” style=”3d” color=”turquoise” align=”center” i_align=”right” i_icon_fontawesome=”fa fa-book” add_icon=”true” link=”url:http%3A%2F%2Fwww.sportstradingtools.co.uk%2Ftrading-psychology-5-best-books%2F||target:%20_blank|”][vc_column_text]Next, we moved onto talking about the Horse Racing markets and gained some more insight about what every novice trader does wrong – including Peter himself when he started out:

  • Arrive at a market with a pre-set plan, otherwise you will try to find things that you cannot see
  • Do not try to interpret EVERYTHING that is going on – it is your goal to exploit when other people do this
  • Let the market work for you, do not be a follower
  • Transition yourself ahead of trends

Followed by questions Peter asks himself before entering a trade:

  • How volatile is the market?
  • How likely is my trade to succeed?
  • How often can I do it?
  • How safe is it to do it? (Stakes should be dependent on the level of risk)
[/vc_column_text][vc_message]A top tip I want to recommend to everyone who is looking to book this course – make sure you take notes throughout! There is a wealth of information on offer and you will not be able to remember half of it by the time you get home, which is not what you want when you’ve just spent £400 for the privilege…[/vc_message][vc_widget_sidebar sidebar_id=”gp-sports-trading-for-beginners-widget”][vc_column_text]We then had a look at the afternoon’s horse racing card and Peter took us through a few things he looks for to prepare himself for the trading session. At this point we were provided some handouts – most of which I had received in the pre-race Horse Racing Workshop I had attended in June 2016. Then we broke for lunch. Again, tea, coffee and a range of sandwiches and pastries were provided.

Once finished we cracked on and started picking Peter’s brains about other sports such as football and even had some chat about the politics markets due to battle between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton in the US Presidential election race.

Following this we had turned to our computer screens (each table has its own) to have a look at some live races on that day’s Horse Racing card and Peter asked us our opinion on what we thought was about to happen, where we thought a good entry was and any signals or obstacles we could see. To his credit, he did predict what was going to happen next and said how he would have traded it.

Peter discussed some of his thoughts on key signals such as Weight of Money and took all our questions and answered them in detail.  He also took us through a few videos showing certain types of market situation – such as when a big bettor comes in with tens of thousands of pounds – and what we should do in such a situation. He also touched on automation and how he uses it and how we could use it to test any of our own strategies.

The course finished up around 6pm and Peter handed out the coveted ‘Trading Bible’ (as it is named on the Bet Angel website). I was excited to get my hands on this as it’s a 334-page book which covers almost every aspect of sports trading and is written by Peter himself.

After Peter Webb’s Trading Masterclass

After the course, it was time for me to head back to my hotel, order some dinner and get stuck into the book I had just been provided with.  I took my time with it and read it over several weeks to make sure I soaked in every bit of information in it. However, as I’ll discuss in the summary, much like the course itself I ended up with the feeling that it stopped short of helping with devising strategies.[/vc_column_text][vc_cta h2=”What Edge Will It Give Me?” txt_align=”center” color=”white” add_button=”bottom” btn_title=”Check Current Availability” btn_style=”3d” btn_color=”warning” btn_align=”center” btn_i_align=”right” btn_i_icon_fontawesome=”fa fa-graduation-cap” btn_add_icon=”true” css=”.vc_custom_1502054516338{border-top-width: 5px !important;border-right-width: 5px !important;border-bottom-width: 5px !important;border-left-width: 5px !important;background-color: #81d742 !important;border-left-color: #cecece !important;border-left-style: outset !important;border-right-color: #cecece !important;border-right-style: outset !important;border-top-color: #cecece !important;border-top-style: outset !important;border-bottom-color: #cecece !important;border-bottom-style: outset !important;border-radius: 5px !important;}” btn_link=”url:https%3A%2F%2Fwww.bettingexchangeacademy.com%2Fcourses|title:https%3A%2F%2Fwww.bettingexchangeacademy.com%2Fcourses|target:%20_blank|rel:nofollow”]

I would only recommend this course to those traders who have already been through the many pitfalls of trading and have started to build a solid consistency. If you have a platform you can work with and know what specific information you’d like to learn on the day from one of Betfair’s best ever traders then this course could be beneficial to you.

Final Thoughts

I thoroughly enjoyed Peter Webb’s Trading Masterclass and it was a great session to learn lots of great knowledge from one of the best traders in the game, however just like the Horse Racing Workshop I came away feeling like it had given me everything I needed…up until a point.

As a novice trader, all the information we learned is great – but without having a nudge in the right direction about which strategies to deploy and when it is difficult to have a starting base to start devising your own strategies and style of trading. I’ve heard many others who have attended these courses comment on this too. I had hoped the ‘Trading Bible’ would answer some of my queries regarding strategies but everything said about the course applies to the book too.

Let me be clear – I am not slating the Bet Angel courses. I just feel that these courses are more suited to those with more experience than your average novice trader who would know exactly what information they need to find out. I took lots of great information and knowledge away from the day that I am sure will benefit me in the future, but I’ll still have to go some more phases of trial and error before I fully find my feet in the horse racing markets.

  • Bring a notepad and make notes – there is a lot of information to take in!
  • Make sure to at least have trialled a Sports Trading Software (if you’re entirely new to these then have a look at our blog post, here) before you attend so you are familiar with the interface and some of the key indicators the course tutor is referring to. Bet Angel offer a two-week trial.
  • I wouldn’t recommend this course to anyone who is completely new to sports trading. If you haven’t already then read these three books that are perfect for beginners before booking any courses.

  • As with the Bet Angel Horse Racing workshop we were left with no practical strategy to go away and get started with

Bet Angel Horse Racing Workshop Details:

[/vc_message][vc_column_text]The Bet Angel Horse Racing Workshop is a one day course held at the Bet Angel headquarters in Hook, Southampton that offers novice sports traders the chance to learn from professionals about key aspects of the Horse Racing markets.

Background Information to the Bet Angel Horse Racing Workshop

Horse Racing is a massive industry and one of the most popular sports to trade on Betfair for several factors:

  • It’s tradable on almost every day of the year (363 out of 365  days)
  • Numerous opportunities daily due to the number of races (An average of 3 meetings with 5-7 races per day)
  • Highly liquid markets (ie, lots of money flowing through them)

It is the first sport that many of those new to trading on Betfair attempt to learn because of these factors. In my opinion Horse Racing is the true art of sports trading because you’re relying mainly on technical skills to read and react to the market as it is happening live whereas with many other sports, like football, a lot of research is done beforehand and is dependent on the events that occur in the football matches.

With pre-race trading you have much more control over the outcome as it is less reliant on external factors and more your ability to read and trade the markets as you seen them.

Who Are Bet Angel and Peter Webb?

Bet Angel is a Betfair and Betdaq trading software company and was founded by Professional Sports Trader Peter Webb who has been trading on Betfair almost since the first day of its inception back in 2000. Peter’s desire to use a software application with an interface that provided information he needed to trade the markets to its full potential led him to have Bet Angel trading software created. It is one of the most popular software’s on the market and the company offer courses to aspiring professional traders to teach them how to trade the markets.

The company offers 3 types of courses: The Bet Angel Horse Racing Workshop, Peter Webb’s Trading Masterclass (you can read that review here) and the Learn to Trade Workshop. This course, the Bet Angel Horse Racing Workshop, focuses solely on the pre-race horse racing markets. The company also offers Personal Mentoring services where you can spend a one-on-one day session with one of their professional traders.

Booking the Bet Angel Horse Racing Workshop

The Bet Angel Horse Racing Workshop was my first foray into learning trading. I had been interested in sports trading for 3 years – ever since I got into Matched Betting – and decided that in June 2016 that the time was right to start developing a new skill. Bet Angel was a company I was familiar with having watched many of their YouTube videos and so I booked myself onto the Horse Racing Workshop through their bettingexchangeacademy.com website at a cost of £240.

Pre-Course

As soon as I booked onto the Bet Angel Horse Racing Workshop I was sent an information email with the terms and conditions and a general overview of the course – it was to last from 9:15am to 6pm.

After sending an email back agreeing to the terms and conditions I was sent further details in relation to the location, directions, airports and accommodation. I always appreciate this level of detail as being from Belfast it’s an extra expense to get over and have to book a hotel, so if someone can provide me with the best option then it means the less I have to do in planning my stay!

I booked my flights into Southampton Airport and booked myself into the White Hart Hotel, Hook which I was to find out is literally a 30 second walk from the Bet Angel offices – very handy!

The Day of the Bet Angel Horse Racing Workshop

The course started promptly at 9:30 after everyone arrived and some light introductions were exchanged. We were all welcome to grab a hot drink and biscuits whilst water, a pen and a notepad were on the tables in front of us – as well as our own computer screen. There are only 6 spaces available at the Bet Angel courses and I feel this is very beneficial as everyone gets their opportunity to ask any questions whilst having them answered in as much detail as they need.

Peter Webb was around for the first hour or so and we had the opportunity to ask him some questions and gain some of his pearls of wisdom as a Professional Betfair trader of over 15 years. It was only then that I realised Peter was not the one giving the course – but one of the Bet Angel’s in-house professional traders called Dave.

Dave proceeded to give us an insight into his life as a professional trader and his thoughts on how the horse racing markets have evolved over time and what they are like to trade these days. He also offered us some helpful advice regarding bank management, protection of our Betfair accounts using 2-Step Authentication and the mindset of a professional Betfair trader. As someone who had no experience of trading at all I found this all very useful information.

Next, we moved onto talking specifically about Horse Racing trading covering topics such as which types of races which are best suited towards swing trading and which are best for scalping with some tips regarding how a horse racing trader thinks when they are in the market. These included:

  • Trust in what you are doing and have a positive outlook
  • Try to ‘wash’ your money through the markets
  • ‘Feed’, or ‘phase’, money out of the market when closing your trades
  • Look at the weak points in the market for your exit points
  • And the most important of all: Don’t join the “What If” club
[/vc_column_text][vc_message]A top tip I want to recommend to everyone who is looking to book this course – make sure you take notes throughout! There is a wealth of information on offer and you will not be able to remember half of it by the time you get home, which is not what you want when you’ve just spent £240 for the privilege…[/vc_message][vc_column_text]

After that, we discussed the more technical side of trading such as how market structure impacts the markets and whether Weight of Money is a useful indicator and how and when to know when to trust it. We also learned about how to read the other indicators such as:

  • Volume traded on the markets
  • Volume traded on each runner and what this may indicate
  • The amounts queued, waiting to be matched
  • Traded volume and the Bell Curves that form around prices
  • Volume % vs Implied %
  • Pivot points, crossover points and resistance point

We were also given a few handouts regarding the volatility of certain race types and how markets tend to react around certain odds.

We were also taught a little about recommended trading set ups and how to set up the software interface. I must stress, I never felt at any point that this course was about selling me the Bet Angel software. Of course, it is used during the training day, but it was never pushed on us that we should use the Bet Angel software.[/vc_column_text][vc_video link=”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HeA40bhThE8″ el_width=”80″ align=”center”][vc_column_text]After this we broke for lunch with tea and coffee where a selection of sandwiches and pastries were on offer. It was at this point Peter re-joined us and we had another chat with him and Dave together. Peter then went off to prepare for the afternoon’s racing as we resumed the course where we started to look through the afternoon’s markets. It’s worth noting that the course was held on a Monday when generally the standard of racing quality isn’t high.

Throughout we talked and discussed about the races that were in front of us and could ask Dave further questions about what we were seeing and how we should read the markets. Dave took the time to go through many of the points we had talked about in the morning sessions in greater detail and drew some visual examples on the classroom easel so we could better visualise how he saw the markets and their signals in his mind’s eye.

This information was hammered home until we knew it – which was great. If someone didn’t get it then Dave didn’t mind going through it until we all were very clear.

Lastly, we finished up with some other questions and Peter joined us again to let us know how he had got on in the day’s trading and we had another opportunity to ask him any questions we still had.

[/vc_column_text][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner][vc_widget_sidebar sidebar_id=”gp-sports-trading-for-beginners-widget”][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_column_text]

Course Booklet

At some point throughout the day Dave handed us a course booklet that contained information we could take away with us. I have to admit, I thought it would have a lot of content on how to trade the horse racing markets but there’s only a few pages at the back which cover anything about this.

The rest of it is about market structure, odds display, the ladder interface, the use of stop losses and the difference between a scalp and a swing trade– which I would have assumed are things which most novice traders already may know. This sort of content seems like it would be more suited to Bet Angel’s ‘Learn to Trade’ course which is purely designed for beginners to get an overview of sports trading.

After Course

There was no follow up communication from Bet Angel after the day had been and gone. But as I got into my trading and began practicing it I did begin to realise one thing – as much as the information I had got from the day was great, I had no strategy to put in place when tackling the horse racing markets! I feel this a key part of the course that is missing.

I’ve read on a few forums that many professional traders feel new traders should find all of this out for themselves…but I think this is utter folly. People need a basis from which to start and whilst the information gained on the day was very useful I couldn’t help but feel there was a missing part of the jigsaw which was key aspect we hadn’t learned about. Professionals go into markets with all the information we had learned, but they have strategies which are dependent on the market type/scenario to combine them with.[/vc_column_text][vc_cta h2=”What Edge Will It Give Me?” txt_align=”center” color=”white” add_button=”bottom” btn_title=”Check Current Availability” btn_style=”3d” btn_color=”warning” btn_align=”center” btn_i_align=”right” btn_i_icon_fontawesome=”fa fa-graduation-cap” btn_add_icon=”true” css=”.vc_custom_1500745740307{border-top-width: 5px !important;border-right-width: 5px !important;border-bottom-width: 5px !important;border-left-width: 5px !important;background-color: #81d742 !important;border-left-color: #cecece !important;border-left-style: outset !important;border-right-color: #cecece !important;border-right-style: outset !important;border-top-color: #cecece !important;border-top-style: outset !important;border-bottom-color: #cecece !important;border-bottom-style: outset !important;border-radius: 5px !important;}” btn_link=”url:https%3A%2F%2Fwww.bettingexchangeacademy.com%2Fcourses|title:https%3A%2F%2Fwww.bettingexchangeacademy.com%2Fcourses|target:%20_blank|rel:nofollow”]

If you’re completely new to sports trading on Betfair then this course probably isn’t for you. However, if you’ve been attempting to trade horse racing (specifically pre-race) then this is an excellent course for learning out how the professionals truly tackle the markets.

[/vc_cta][vc_column_text]

Final Thoughts

At the time I really did feel like I got a lot out of attending the Bet Angel Horse Racing Workshop, but hindsight is always a great thing and I realise now that whilst I learnt so much useful information there was no real practical basis from which to go home and start from.

If you’re in the early stages of your Sports Trading journey and are really intent on booking a course then my advice is that the better option is to attend Mug’s Game’s Horse Racing Workshop which is the same price at £220 and provides you with a practical strategy that any novice can get to grips with. It also comes with 8gbs of video which you and go home and watch in your own time so the strategy is imprinted on your mind. I’d say the Bet Angel course is better suited to people who have been trading for a good while, have got to grips with it and want to enhance their level of knowledge.

55+ Bookmaker Sports Sign-Up Offers

These come with full written instructions on how to complete the offers. The first few have video instructions so users can see Sam, the site creator, taking you through the step-by-step process of converting bookmaker free bets into real cash. From the list of offers here you could comfortably be banking at least £1,000. Not a bad start, ey?

This section is also punctuated with tutorials regarding money management, understand why the process of matched betting works so well and how to continue making money after you’ve finished the sign-up offers.

If you’ve never signed up to any of the 55+ bookmakers listed on site then there is a potential risk free profit of £1,000 awaiting you.[/vc_column_text][vc_btn title=”Make Your First £1,000 Now!” style=”3d” color=”warning” size=”lg” align=”center” i_align=”right” i_icon_fontawesome=”fa fa-mouse-pointer” add_icon=”true” link=”url:http%3A%2F%2Fwww.sportstradingtools.co.uk%2Fprofit-accum||target:%20_blank|rel:nofollow”][vc_message]Sign-Up Offers: Bookmakers offer free bets upon sign up run to entice customers to choose to their site over their competitors.

Again, these come with full written instructions. These are laid out strategically with the risk-free and lower risk offers to be completed first. Just like the sports sign-up offers, some of tutorials have videos included to show examples of how this process works. This section is also punctuated with videos about why Casino offers work so well and the process of EV (Expected Value/Estimated Value).

50+ Reload Offers

A reload offer is the way matched bettors keep profiting even after all the sign-up offers are complete. There is a list of over 50 here that can be done straight off the bat.

8 Bingo Offers

Bingo is not as widely used these days, but there is a list of offers here with full instructions on how to profit from them.

Access to the Forum

With a thriving community there is plenty of action on the website forum. Members and moderators post offers they’ve found and discuss all the details that go with it. You can ask any questions here. This is also a place where people motivate others by showing what they have achieved and what they have spent their extra money on. It’s a great place to get some inspiration – if you need any.[/vc_column_text][vc_message]Reload Offer: Regular promotions that bookmakers run to entice current customers into returning to their site over the competitions. For example, Bet365’s £50 In-Play offer.

[/vc_message][vc_column_text]After you’ve completed the initial stages so that get you familiar with the concept, service providers offer a range of tools which will help you:

  • Make long-term, consistent daily profit
  • Learn to use new techniques and strategies which will boost your profits
  • Ease you into more even more advanced methods

The features that Profit Accumulator offers are:

Oddsmatching Software

This form of matched betting software finds all the best value matched bets for you automatically. It pulls the odds from almost every bookie you can imagine, plus the odds from all the betting exchanges and finds which odds are the closest – this is a powerful tool for 3 reasons:

  • The closer the odds match for your qualifying bets the lower your qualifying losses. This equals more profit in the long term.
  • The closer the odds match for your free bet conversions then the higher amount you will be able to extract from the bonus. Again, this equals more profit long term.
  • It saves you from trawling through every bookmaker site and betting exchange to find the best odds matches yourself. This is one hell of a timesaver and allows users to free up their time which can be spent making more money by doing more offers.

The software on Profit Accumulator looks like this:[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”1160″ img_size=”full” add_caption=”yes” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_border” onclick=”link_image” css=”.vc_custom_1496613220803{border-radius: 2px !important;}”][vc_single_image image=”1161″ img_size=”full” add_caption=”yes” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_border” onclick=”link_image” css=”.vc_custom_1496613284650{border-radius: 2px !important;}”][vc_single_image image=”1163″ img_size=”full” add_caption=”yes” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_border” onclick=”link_image” css=”.vc_custom_1496613412682{border-radius: 2px !important;}”][vc_column_text]The data can be filtered in a multitude of ways so you can find bets which fit your criteria. If you click the calculator icon to the left it’ll bring up a calculator where you can type in your stake at the bookmaker and it will fill in all the calculations for you.

Profit Accumulator Match Catcher Software

This is pretty much the same as the Oddmatching Software but filters by horse races for the current day only. With a lot of horse racing offers to be had on a daily basis this is a great time saver as it automatically finds the best odds matches for you throughout the day.[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”1164″ img_size=”full” add_caption=”yes” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_border” onclick=”link_image” css=”.vc_custom_1496616092235{border-radius: 2px !important;}”][vc_single_image image=”1165″ img_size=”full” add_caption=”yes” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_border” onclick=”link_image” css=”.vc_custom_1496616213072{border-radius: 2px !important;}”][vc_single_image image=”1167″ img_size=”full” add_caption=”yes” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_border” onclick=”link_image” css=”.vc_custom_1496616454018{border-radius: 2px !important;}”][vc_column_text]

Profit Accumulator Acca Catcher

Accumulator matched betting is another form and is slightly more advanced. With many bookmakers offering ‘Money Back if One Team Lets You Down’ style accumulators this has become a popular money making method.

This used to be an optional extra but now comes free with the standard membership. Kudos goes to Profit Accumulator for this, as it’s likely to have been an expensive software for them to create – but one that offers their members an amazing opportunity to milk the bookies even more.

I’ll not go into too much detail about the ins and outs of it as it’s pretty much a whole system on its own, but there are full instructions and training videos available to subscribers where you can learn this advanced form. I wouldn’t recommend it for beginners, though.[/vc_column_text][vc_btn title=”Find Out More On ProfitAccumulator.co.uk” style=”3d” color=”warning” size=”lg” align=”center” i_align=”right” i_icon_fontawesome=”fa fa-mouse-pointer” add_icon=”true” link=”url:http%3A%2F%2Fwww.sportstradingtools.co.uk%2Fprofit-accum||target:%20_blank|rel:nofollow”][vc_message]With 4 different strategies within Acca Catcher Software there is something to suit everyone whether you are time poor, a risk taker or someone who just wants to take the guaranteed profit. If you’re looking guaranteed profit every time I recommend the ‘Refund Lock In’ method. This is shown in the example below.[/vc_message][vc_single_image image=”1169″ img_size=”full” add_caption=”yes” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_border” onclick=”link_image” css=”.vc_custom_1496616622391{border-radius: 2px !important;}”][vc_single_image image=”1170″ img_size=”full” add_caption=”yes” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_border” onclick=”link_image” css=”.vc_custom_1496616697940{border-radius: 2px !important;}”][vc_single_image image=”1171″ img_size=”full” add_caption=”yes” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_border” onclick=”link_image” css=”.vc_custom_1496616771129{border-radius: 2px !important;}”][vc_column_text]

Profit Tracking

Next up is the Profit Tracking software which will be a real help to anyone who is a not a fan of recording data in their own Excel spreadsheets.

I must say, this is an excellent tool and something I’d have loved when I started out, but hey, at least I got to learn who to use Excel spreadsheets, though! This is an advantage PA have over their competitors as the others just offer downloadable spreadsheets – none have gone as far as creating software which is built into the site. A very nice addition.

This also keeps a track of your overall profit in the top menu, meaning that on every screen you visit you can feel good about just how much money you’re making.[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”1172″ img_size=”full” add_caption=”yes” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_border” onclick=”link_image” css=”.vc_custom_1496617209567{border-radius: 2px !important;}”][vc_column_text]

Support and Training

Each section has detailed written instructions so you cannot go wrong. There are plenty of beginner videos to show various examples of how each aspect of matched betting works. If you do ever find you need an extra level of help, then help is always on hand through the forum where moderators and fellow members will help with any query.

If that isn’t enough you also have the options to:

  • Email the team
  • Visit the FAQ section
  • Raise a support query ticket through the website’s CRM (Customer Relationship Management software)
  • Or even by giving the team at PA a phone call!
[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]

One Surprise

It came as surprise to me that Profit Accumulator doesn’t have a daily calendar feature. This is pretty much standard with their main competitors as it is a great way of keeping track of which best value reload offers you want to take on for the day and allows you to plan ahead for future days. I find that having offers posted in a forum means they can get mixed up and you may miss out on what has been posted purely for that day and assess which ones are the best use of your time.

Some Nice Touches…

PA even has a ‘Gubbed Filter’. Being ‘gubbed’ means that you are banned from bookmaker bonuses – don’t worry – this is par for the course. It’s expected as you’re rinsing so much value from the bookmakers and they tend not to appreciate that. Not every bookie will gub you, and there is still plenty of life in most accounts after a gubbing occurs. For example, bookies will very rarely gub you from their casinos.

After each offer or training video has been completed then you can tick the ‘Completed’ box so it disappears form your list. You can reactivate these if you made mistake and hit the ‘completed’ button accidentally.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]

Final Thoughts

Profit Accumulator was one of the first sites to make matched betting accessible to people with no experience of betting at all. It is a fantastically laid out site that fits the modern age. This, combined with great tutorials, means that anyone who signs up to the service is onto a winner right from the get go.[/vc_column_text][vc_btn title=”Visit ProfitAccumulator.co.uk” style=”3d” color=”warning” size=”lg” align=”center” i_align=”right” i_icon_fontawesome=”fa fa-mouse-pointer” button_block=”true” add_icon=”true” link=”url:http%3A%2F%2Fwww.sportstradingtools.co.uk%2Fprofit-accum||target:%20_blank|rel:nofollow”][pricing_table][pricing_column title=”Free” price=”Free” currency_symbol=”£” title_color=”#1e73be”]

  • It sounds simple – but start from the start and work through each stage and offer in the order presented – they are ordered this way for a reason. This will help you build up your profits quicker.
  • Do take advantage of casino offers. Many people don’t do these as they see them as ‘too much risk’. They’re not. It’s another case of maths that will favour you in the long run. If you don’t do them then you are missing out on a massive chunk of profits.

  • The lack of a daily or monthly calendar surprises me. A forum is a good tool, but offers often get mixed about and it’s hard to keep a track of what ones you want to do for the day, or to plan which ones you want to do in coming days.
[/vc_message][/vc_tta_section][/vc_tta_accordion][vc_toggle title=”FAQ” size=”lg” open=”true”]What if I’ve already signed up to a load of bookmaker accounts – will the sign up offers on the site be of any use to me?

Don’t worry, there are many more listed on PA that I doubt you’ll have even heard of – the gambling industry is just that competitive. At the time of writing PA has over 55+ with instructions to each. Plus, the long-term value comes from the reload offers that bookmaker’s send you once you’re signed up to them – PA will teach you how to turn these into cash.

What’s the customer service like?

It’s hard for me to comment on this as I’ve never used it but I’ve heard and seen mainly positive feedback. If you have any experience of the PA customer service then please drop a comment below with your opinion.

What if I work full time – would I have time to complete the offers?

The majority of the offers listed are not time specific. You often have a few days to get around to doing them. Many of the people that use sites like these work full time and use them as a hobby which makes them a tidy second income.

How much can I make?

There’s no simple answer to this one – it really depends on how much time you’re willing to put in. But many members on the forum comfortably make upwards of 10k a year.

Have you any tips or advice?

Yes – take your time. Learn each piece bit by bit and grow your knowledge – this is the way to reach your maximum profit potential.

I’m afraid to tackle casino type offers… why should I do them?

Trust in the maths and it will reward you with handsome profits. See the casino and slots offers as a longer-term investment. Start off with the risk-free or smaller offers to find your comfort levels. If you haven’t already, watch this YouTube video:

Whereas Bonus Bagging had a set beginning and end to it Mike’s next goal was to help people make an income from matched betting for the long term.

This led him to create Profit Maximiser (which has been going since 2013) in which Mike, his team and their community of followers – known as ‘PM’ers’ – would find daily ‘reload’ offers to extract profit from.[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”1011″ img_size=”full” add_caption=”yes” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_border” onclick=”link_image” css=”.vc_custom_1496610362430{border-radius: 2px !important;}”][vc_column_text]

How Does Profit Maximiser Work?

The premise is the exact same as the other matched betting service communities out there.

Whereas Bonus Bagging has a limited lifetime with only 15-18 offers to complete, Profit Maximiser offers a never-ending list of offers to make money from. And there’s different methods too. Profit Maximiser is not just about Sports offers. Although these are lucrative and a mainstay of your matched betting income, Casino and Bingo offers give matched bettors the opportunity to supercharge their profits.

Every day the on-site Calendar is updated with a list of offers on that day. These are filled with Sports bonuses, Casino bonuses and Bingo offers. Don’t worry if you’ve only have grasped the basics of matched betting, training for every type of offer is listed on the site through a mix of excellent videos and clearly written instructions.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_cta h2=”Profit Maximiser Matched Betting Service” h4=”What Edge Will It Give Me?” txt_align=”center” color=”white” add_button=”bottom” btn_title=”Visit Website” btn_style=”3d” btn_color=”warning” btn_size=”lg” btn_align=”center” btn_i_align=”right” btn_i_icon_fontawesome=”fa fa-mouse-pointer” btn_css_animation=”none” css_animation=”none” btn_button_block=”true” btn_add_icon=”true” css=”.vc_custom_1502484987689{border-top-width: 5px !important;border-right-width: 5px !important;border-bottom-width: 5px !important;border-left-width: 5px !important;background-color: #81d742 !important;border-left-color: #cecece !important;border-left-style: outset !important;border-right-color: #cecece !important;border-right-style: outset !important;border-top-color: #cecece !important;border-top-style: outset !important;border-bottom-color: #cecece !important;border-bottom-style: outset !important;border-radius: 5px !important;}” btn_link=”url:http%3A%2F%2Fwww.sportstradingtools.co.uk%2Fprofitmax||target:%20_blank|rel:nofollow”]

What Ways Can I Use Profit Maximiser?

There are many ways to use Profit Maximiser for profit potential. In fact, it’s easy to get overwhelmed at the start. If you take it step by step and in the order laid out in the ‘Start Here’ guide then you’ll be just fine.

There are three main categories of offers that you’ll regularly see on the PM website. I’ve talked about each of them below detailing both the initial Sign-Up offers and then the Reload offers which follow once you’re registered with a bookmaker. I’ve also mentioned the Profit Maximiser Calendar and the private Facebook Group as these are two fantastic tools you should be using on a regular basis.

 Sports

Sign-Ups

The Profit Maximiser website has 20+ sign up offers listed on the website. These come with full instructions of how to complete the offers and detail what your potential profit should end up around.

These are ordered in a logical manner so that the smaller offers are listed first (currently this is Pokerstars with their £20 free bet sign-up) and then they progress in value to end up at the highest value sign ups (currently 10Bet with their £200 sign-up bonus).[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”1137″ img_size=”full” add_caption=”yes” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_border” onclick=”link_image” css=”.vc_custom_1496585678515{border-radius: 2px !important;}”][vc_message]Sign-Up Offers: Bookmakers offer free bets upon sign up run to entice customers to choose to their site over their competitors.

Reload offers are always listed on the calendar if they’re open to everyone – for example, when Bet365 run their £50 Risk-Free in-play offer. However, from time to time you’ll receive special promotions from bookmakers to your own email inbox that are exclusive to you (these are known as ‘invite only’). You should be well versed on how to complete them by the time you start receiving these, but if you’re not them just email Mike or ask in the Facebook group for advice and you’ll undoubtedly get a response.[/vc_column_text][vc_message]The 20+ bookmaker sign-up offers alone will help you make between £650-£750 risk free.[/vc_message][vc_btn title=”Visit Profit Maximiser.co.uk” style=”3d” color=”warning” size=”lg” align=”center” i_align=”right” i_icon_fontawesome=”fa fa-mouse-pointer” button_block=”true” add_icon=”true” link=”url:http%3A%2F%2Fwww.sportstradingtools.co.uk%2Fprofitmax||target:%20_blank|rel:nofollow”][vc_column_text]

Casino (also known as Slots offers)

Sign-Ups

If you’re new to the idea of extracting profit from casino bonuses then do not worry. Profit Maximiser has provided the best launchpad for you to get your head around them. With 11 offers currently listed on the website they are the best starting point for anyone new to this concept. Again, these are strategically structured so that you begin with the risk-free offers and work up to the offers which have an element of risk.

Why is there ‘risk’ involved? Unlike with Sports sign-up offers you will not win every time you do a casino sign-up offer. However, if you do them as a process over a number of times then you will have the mathematical advantage to profit from them over the long-term. This is assured by the mathematics of ‘Expected Value’ (also known as Estimated Value or EV). You don’t need to know the ins and outs of Expected Value at this stage, but over time you’ll grasp it and see just how lucrative it makes casino offers. A full video explanation of it is found in the training section.

Reload Offers

As we’ve already covered – bookmakers will have special promotions in order to get customers back using their site. They run these regularly and these provide numerous opportunities for matched bettors to get stuck in and make a profit. Again, anything that is open to all customers is listed on the Profit Maximiser calendar, but if you happen to receive an ‘invite only’ offer then you will likely know how to take advantage of it by this stage, but if not then you can ask on the forum.

Advanced Casino

The Advanced Casino training is superb and highly detailed with 4 video tutorials and written guides for over 100 casino sign-ups. However, it must be noted this section is only recommended for those with 1+ years’ experience of matched betting.[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”1138″ img_size=”full” add_caption=”yes” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_border” onclick=”link_image” css=”.vc_custom_1496586291019{border-radius: 2px !important;}”][vc_message]To newcomers, casino offers seem risky – but if you neglect them you’ll miss out on lots of potential profit. Trust in the maths and it will reward you with handsomely. See the casino and slots offers as a longer-term investment. Start off with the risk-free or smaller offers to find your comfort levels. Watch the video below which explains the concept perfectly:

[/vc_message][vc_column_text]

Bingo

Sign-Ups

In total there are more than 20 Bingo sign-up offers listed on PM and they come with the usual videos and written instructions.  These work much in the same way as Casino offers in that you will not win on every offer you attempt, but if you do them all then you should be up in the long-run. This is where the maths of Expected Value comes in again.

Reload Offers

Just like Casino offers, Bingo companies will tempt their customers back onto their site with reload offers. These offer more opportunities to make profits. Some of the offers offered by Bingo companies are astounding. For example, Virgin have an offer where if you just deposit £50 into the account they will give you a £50 cash bonus….that is entirely withdrawable straightaway. It’s like someone just handing you £50 and saying “cheers, enjoy this free cash on us!”

The premise of completing Bingo offers is just the same as Casino offers – you won’t win every time but if you do enough offers you will be in profit in the long run.[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”1022″ img_size=”full” add_caption=”yes” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_border” onclick=”link_image” css=”.vc_custom_1496587324301{border-radius: 2px !important;}”][vc_message]Reload Offer: Regular promotions that bookmakers run to entice current customers into returning to their site over the competitions.

Main Features

Daily and Monthly Calendar

This calendar is updated every day with the current offers and has a few lovely nice touches to it:

  • You can filter offers by type – so if you don’t fancy doing certain ones then it won’t display them
  • You can also display the calendar in a daily or monthly view
  • Click an offer and it’ll pop up with the details and instructions to the offer (and if it’s a sports offer and you have access to Betting Mastermind or the Matched Betting Software then it will display the best matches for your qualifying bets)
  • Tick when an offer is completed so it’s visibly marked as being done

The calendar offers a wealth of profit opportunity on every day of the week. There isn’t a day where it hasn’t got an offer listed, and there’s usually more than I even bother to tackle. This makes it easy to cherry-pick the best and most profitable opportunities if you’re time-limited.

The tutorials on the PM website are great, but the secret Facebook group is unparalleled for learning. With over 7,000 members there is an incredible amount of experience and knowledge available. In my early day of PM I would read this for hours on end because I found it so fascinating. So, what are the main reasons to use the Facebook group?

  • There are many people in this private group who have been doing Matched Betting for 5+ years and offer up their pearls of matched betting wisdom
  • Community spirit, everybody is in the same boat and motivated to bash the bookies. There’s a wide range of people on the group too, from the students looking for that extra money to the elder statesmen and women of the UK and Ireland who are looking to top up their pension
  • There is no such thing as a stupid question. Got one? Ask it, people will be happy to help
  • Discussion about the daily offers and how to best tackle them – plus you get to see other people’s results
  • From time to time bookmakers offer enhanced sign-up offers – these often go unnoticed by the general public…but Mike doesn’t miss a trick and somehow always seems to find a link. Have a look at the BetBright offer below. Their own Facebook advertisement is offering a “£10 Free Bet for New Customers”. How, eh, ‘generous’ of them… But in a moment of perfect timing when I was scrolling through Facebook I seen that just 2 hours before Mike had posted a link to an enhanced BetBright offer of a £50 free bet for new customers!
  • And the best reason of all: The Loopholes. I’ve been involved in 4 or 5 loopholes in my time on PM and these are literally a license to print money. The people on them sharpest can often make thousands of pounds in the space of a few hours. (When you get in you can search for details on the Sky Casino Red 10 loophole or the William Hill Bank Holiday Massacre of 2016. Ah, great memories!)

When I was just starting out I found it was the best resource for learning due to the amount of activity of people sharing offers, passing on their knowledge and experience and helping out newcomers by answering their questions.[/vc_message][vc_column_text]

Support and Training

As you’d expect each section has detailed written instructions with varying beginner videos to show examples of how each aspect of matched betting works. These are comprehensive enough and Mike’s training is superb, however if you do happen to have any problems you can email Mike and receive a prompt reply.  The members in the Facebook Group are also very helpful and will help out as best they can with any query.[/vc_column_text][vc_cta h2=”Matched Betting Services Comparison” txt_align=”center” color=”white” add_button=”bottom” btn_title=”Find Out More” btn_style=”3d” btn_color=”default” btn_align=”center” btn_i_align=”right” btn_i_icon_fontawesome=”fa fa-table” btn_add_icon=”true” css=”.vc_custom_1500835390533{background-color: #4aa8c3 !important;border: 5px outset #cecece !important;border-radius: 5px !important;}” btn_link=”|title:Go%20to%20the%20Matched%20Betting%20Services%20Comparison|target:%20_blank|”]

Final Thoughts

The pricing equates to a monthly cost of just 2 or 3 pints (or cups of coffee if you’re not a drinker). That’s pretty amazing considering the return on investment you’re going to get.

I wouldn’t even like to guess how much Mike has helped people take off the bookies (it’s definitely in the hundreds of millions), but what I’m 100% sure on is he’s their number one enemy. Think of him as the Robin Hood of the Gambling industry: enabling the poor to steal from the rich.

If you want to make profits from bookmakers on a monthly and yearly basis then Profit Maximiser is for you. Why gamble your money away on your weekly bets when you can play the bookmakers at their own game? Join Profit Maximiser today and look forward to some extra cash that can go towards that dream holiday, that new car you want or something as simple as paying off your mortgage early…[/vc_column_text][vc_btn title=”Sign Up To Profit Maximiser Now” style=”3d” color=”warning” size=”lg” align=”center” i_align=”right” i_icon_fontawesome=”fa fa-mouse-pointer” button_block=”true” add_icon=”true” link=”url:http%3A%2F%2Fwww.sportstradingtools.co.uk%2Fprofitmax||target:%20_blank|rel:nofollow”][pricing_table][pricing_column title=”£1 Trial” price=”1″ currency_symbol=”£” interval=”30 Days” highlight=”enabled” highlight_text=”Best Option” highlight_color=”#81d742″ highlight_title_color=”#ffffff” highlight_background_color=”#ffffff”]30 Day Trial for just £1![/pricing_column][pricing_column title=”Yearly” price=”97 +VAT” currency_symbol=”£” interval=”per year” title_color=”#1e73be”]30 Day Money Back Guarantee[/pricing_column][/pricing_table][vc_btn title=”Get the £1 Trial” style=”3d” color=”warning” size=”lg” align=”center” i_align=”right” i_icon_fontawesome=”fa fa-mouse-pointer” add_icon=”true” link=”url:http%3A%2F%2Fwww.sportstradingtools.co.uk%2Fprofitmax||target:%20_blank|rel:nofollow”][vc_message message_box_color=”success” icon_fontawesome=”fa fa-pencil”]Top Tips

  • It sounds simple – but start from the start and work through each stage and offer in the order presented – they are ordered this way for a reason. This will help you build up your profits quicker.
  • Do take advantage of casino offers. Many people don’t do these as they see them as ‘too much risk’. They’re not. It’s another case of maths that will favour you in the long run. If you don’t do them then you are missing out on a massive chunk of profits.
  • If you’re familiar with Betfair or how betting exchanges work then make use of Smarkets for their 2% commission which will save you hundreds of pounds in commission fees in the long run
  • Skrill is a great option. It’s an online wallet that allows you to withdraw money from bookmakers into one central account within 24 hours. This is an incredible time saver when you’re doing reload offers as withdrawing to bank accounts usually takes 3-4 days.
  • If you’re familiar with matched betting then you may want to check out our Betting Mastermind review which gets you lifetime access to all of Mike Cruickshank’s stellar products – a multitude of ways to make money from matched betting!

  • As much as I feel that PM has a lot more going for it than other matched betting providers, there is one aspect it definitely lacks in and that is the design of the website. This was updated in March 2017 and is now much sleeker looking and more user friendly, but the competitors have the edge on this. However, this is a minor gripe.
[/vc_message][/vc_tta_section][/vc_tta_accordion][vc_toggle title=”FAQ” size=”lg” open=”true”]What if I’ve already signed up to a load of bookmaker accounts – will the sign up offers on the site be of any use to me?

Don’t worry, there are many more listed on PM that I doubt you’ll have even heard of – the gambling industry is just that competitive. At the time of writing PM has over 20+ with instructions to each. Plus, the long-term value comes from the reload offers that bookmaker’s send you once you’re signed up to them – PM will teach you how to turn these into cash.

What’s the customer service like?

Mike and his team take pride in being fast, efficient and reliable when it comes to helping out any of their subscribers. Anytime I’ve emailed in I’ve usually received a reply within the hour – usually under 10 minutes. Obviously if it’s during the night you’re emailing in you may have to wait until morning.

What if I work full time – would I have time to complete the offers?

The majority of the offers listed are not time specific. You often have a few days to get around to doing them. Many of the people that use sites like these work full time and use them as a hobby which makes them a tidy second income.

How much can I make?

There’s no simple answer to this one – it really depends on how much time you’re willing to put in. But many members on the forum comfortably make upwards of 10k a year.

Have you any tips or advice?

Yes – take your time. Learn each piece bit by bit and grow your knowledge – this is the way to reach your maximum profit potential.

I’m afraid to tackle casino type offers… why should I do them?

Trust in the maths and it will reward you with handsome profits. See the casino and slots offers as a longer-term investment. Start off with the risk-free or smaller offers to find your comfort levels. If you haven’t already, watch this YouTube video:
