Betting Mastermind is the pinnacle of Mike Cruickshank’s work in the ever-growing matched betting industry. Since launching his first matched betting service in 2011 (Bonus Bagging) and creating the life-changing Profit Maximiser in 2013, Mike has since gone on to create 8 other products which have been helping thousands of people truly beat the bookmakers to make consistent monthly second incomes.
The holy grail of matched betting, Mike Cruickshank’s Betting Mastermind with free Project Prosperity training, gives lifetime access to all 10 of these products, software and services and is a worthy investment that will pay for itself for years to come.
What Are Betting Mastermind and Project Prosperity?
Betting Mastermind is the 10 products, software and services and these are great on their own, but when combined with a strategic plan of action, ie Project Prosperity, they become one hell of a force.
Project Prosperity is the 5-step training plan provided by Mike Cruickshank to guide users of Betting Mastermind and turn a £500 bank into £15,000 in the space of 8 months. This comes in the form of a PDF document outlining the steps and a 1-hour video where Mike talks you through how to achieve this feat.
Below, I’ve screenshotted Mike’s explanation of Project Prosperity on my Betting Mastermind member’s area, plus the table Mike’s calculated to show your monthly target earnings and how to reach the £15,000.
What Do I Get with Betting Mastermind and How Does Each Tool Work?
Purchasing Betting Mastermind gives you the Project Prosperity training and your key to all 8 matched betting tools that Mike has created over the years, plus 2 sports trading strategies. I can vouch for this myself when I say they have made A LOT of people a substantial second income.
Once you get into Betting Mastermind and check out our Profit Maximiser Facebook group you’ll really begin the learn the huge money-making potential that access to all his matched betting products and services gives you.
With Betting Mastermind, you will be getting all the following tools and systems at a discounted rate and without having to pay the annual renewal fees which come with 5 of the 10 of the products included – this saves £656 per year:
The place to start when you first get into Betting Mastermind. Bonus Bagging hand holds you through the start of your matched betting journey by providing video training and emailing out specific step-by-step instructions on how to make £350+ from over 15 sports bookmakers sign-up offers.
Don’t worry if you’ve already done a bit of matched betting before and have used up a lot of the bookmaker sign-up offers. With Betting Mastermind there 9 more ways to make money other than sign-up offers.
Arguably Mike’s finest and most profit milking product. Profit Maximiser is where all the daily matched betting offers are listed and instructions are provided on how to profit from them. After you watch the full training that is provided it is suggested you start off with the step-by-step guidelines on how to complete another set of more lucrative sports bookmaker sign-up offers (over 20 at the time of writing) to make a further £750+.
There are also a range of other ways to make profits outside of attempting sports offers, as seen in steps 3-5. You will also be granted access to the secret Facebook group where over 7,000 members are making consistent, daily profits thanks to the generosity of bookmakers.
Matched Betting Software
Incredible time-saving software that finds you all the best matched bets from every bookmaker used on Mike’s products. The Matched Betting software also dovetails with the Calendar in Profit Maximiser by displaying all the best matched bets for each specific offer you click on. This saves a tonne of time and means you don’t have to go searching for the best value bets yourself.
Each Way Sniper
A completely risk-free matched betting software that’s primary use is on horse racing. There are 5 separate money-making strategies within Each Way Sniper but its two best uses are for:
- Daily, consistent profits from spotting value between bookmakers Each Way prices of horses
- Looking to hit big wins by taking advantage of their Extra Place offers on the bigger meetings.
EWS uses the same Extra Place strategy to profit from major Golf tournaments such as the Masters. In total, there are 5 profit-making strategies with full training provided.
I’m sure you’re wondering by now is there nothing Mike Cruickshank can’t do? Accumulator Generator is another risk-free matched betting software that takes advantage of bookmaker offers specifically on football accumulators and locks in profits regardless of how many of your selected teams win, lose or draw. There are 5 strategies included, again with full training provided.
For the advanced matched bettors who wish to do their own Estimated Value (EV) calculations on invitation-only offers they have received from bookmakers or offers they have discovered themselves. This software uses the Law of Large Numbers to calculate the mathematical edge for each offer and:
- Advise on the best stake size to use
- Calculates the % chance of busting out
- Estimates the hourly rate of return of an offer
Full and comprehensive training, as with every other product and software listed in this review, is included.
Admittedly, this pales in comparison to Mike’s other, finer products. It relies on the Betfair Exchange only and is based on the premise of the Betfair Renegade software finding value bets within Betfair football markets. I have heard a few people on the Profit Maximiser Facebook group talking about how they have used it to profit but personally it is not a product I use much.
Note: This product cannot be bought separately.
Bookie Blowout is another great product from Mike. It finds back value in the early bookmaker prices on horses for the next day’s racing. The idea is that you back the selections the night before and then lay them on a Betting Exchange the next day and make a profit – it is a form of arbitrage betting. There are a couple of slight issues with this product though:
- You must be very quick to get your bets on as soon as you are emailed the selection
- It is likely to court attention from bookmakers who realise you are taking value prices
Betfair Sniper (Trading Strategy)
One of Mike’s products that I feel falls just short. I cannot give away the strategy behind this idea but it is another that relies solely on the Betfair Exchange and does not need bookmaker accounts. It is more of trading strategy and one that those who are familiar with Sports Trading may wish to implement, but frankly I’d rather just concentrate on my own trading instead of looking out for the certain race betting conditions that this strategy focuses on. Like Betfair Renegade, this product cannot be bought on its own.
Note: This product cannot be bought separately.
Betfair 1% Club (Trading Strategy)
Another trading strategy so this only relies on having a Betfair account. I can’t give away too many details about it for obvious reasons, but it is essentially a pre-match football scalping strategy. If you’re into sports trading then I would imagine you would already be aware of this strategy – if you’re not then who knows, it may be your first foray into sports trading. Instructions in the PDF are clear and well explained with numerous examples to boot.
Note: This product cannot be bought separately.
So, there you go, that’s a comprehensive list of everything included in Mike Cruickshank’s Betting Mastermind. Whilst the 2 trading strategies aren’t stellar and are something sports traders amongst you probably already know there is absolutely tonnes of value to be had in the 8 matched betting tools. By signing up to Betting Mastermind you will be able to exploit these avenues of Matched Betting for a lifetime and they will provide one hell of a return on your initial outlay.
Training and Customer Service
Training for every product is exceptional as it is thoroughly comprehensive and is presented in both written and video form.
Mike takes you through every aspect of each tool to explain how and why they work so well, how to use them and has included plenty of step-by-step video examples of him using them to make his own profit. There is also an extensive FAQ sections provided with each tool.
If you ever have any other questions Mike is always just an email away or you can do what I preferred to do and just ask a question in the Facebook group as this is a community that is only too willing to help newcomers. Mike and his customer service team have us all well covered.
The price of Betting Mastermind is £97+ vat up front and this covers the first month in which you also have a “no questions asked” 30-Day Money Back Guarantee.
For the next 3 months there are monthly payments of £197 + vat. This brings the total cost of the first year to £825.60. Then there’s only a small yearly £40 admin fee.
To put this into perspective the easy-to-do bookmaker sign-up offers on Bonus Bagging and Profit Maximiser total OVER £1,000 – these come with full step-by-step instructions will cover all of your first-year costs and at least 5 years of the annual admin fee. Depending on your bankroll, it is realistic that you could complete all the sign-up offers within the space of 1-2 months.
I had yearly access to Profit Maximiser, Accumulator Generator, Each Way Sniper, the Matched Betting Software, EV Maximiser and Bonus Bagging and when Mike launched this all-in-one super package and it was a no brainer investment for two reasons:
- I would be saving over £600 per year in annual fees
- I knew that within a few weeks I would be making back my investment in Betting Mastermind as my average profit gains from Mike’s matched betting products were already £1800 per month
What Am I Saving By Buying This Ultimate All-In-One Package?
If you were to subscribe to all products in Betting Mastermind separately you would be saving around £200 on the first year. Most of these products come with annual renewal fees so you will then save a further £650 each year.
That £40 admin fee seems like a pretty sweet deal, doesn’t it?

Does Betting Mastermind Have a Money Back Guarantee?
If you find that Betting Mastermind isn’t for you then it comes with a “no questions asked” 30-Day Money Back Guarantee. Only providers who have real faith in their service offer this. Mike has always been praised for his customer service and he has no qualms about refunding people if they request one. I can’t imagine he has had people do this, though! Try it out for yourself and if you’re not convinced then ask for a refund before the 30 days are up.
I had access to 7 of Mike’s products and still invested in Betting Mastermind as I knew in the long term it would save me in renewal fees but that I would also make back my initial investment within just a matter of weeks.
There is no other matched betting service like Betting Mastermind and the Project Prosperity Training that comes with it. It truly is the holy grail of money making systems you will find on the internet due to it being the culmination of Mike Cruickshank’s years of outstanding work in this industry.
With the Project Prosperity training now included too, just imagine being given the keys to unlock your financial freedom so you don’t have to worry about your rent or mortgage payment this month, or being given the freedom to buy that new car or book that dream holiday. This is the level of financial freedom we’re talking about with this all-in-one package.
How much should I start with for a bankroll?
It depends on how much you can afford or how quickly you want to fly through the initial sign up offers. I personally started with £300, but the bare minimum you could start with is £100.
How much can I make?
It is really comes down to a number of factors such as how much you’re willing to learn and how much time you have to do it. If you have a good amount of spare time then you can make whatever you want – within reason. If you are time poor you can still make a few hundred pounds a month.
How come my earnings from this will be tax free?
Under UK law any earnings made from ‘gambling’ are tax free. Matched betting, although risk free, is still classified as gambling. Even Wikipedia says so: http://bit.ly/2ocUVJT. See?
Which product should I start with?
As said above – start with Bonus Bagging and then move onto the Profit Maximiser sign ups. These will teach you the basic skills on how to make money from matched betting.
Have you any other tips?
- Once you get into the flow of things start using Smarkets as your main betting exchange. Their 2% commission will save you hundreds in commissions to Betfair every year (they have 5%). Also, sign up to Skrill to have a faster flow of your bankroll. For more top tips read this blog here.
- Build up your bankroll up to a decent amount (£1000+) and only withdraw amounts you really need until it gets large enough. The bigger the bankroll you have the more offers you will be able to tackle at a time meaning the more money you can make.
