16 ‘ Bad Tipster’ Warning Signs & The Bookie/Tipster Profit Share Problem

.
Last week I was pleased to be quoted in an article published by the Guardian newspaper on the growing issue of tipsters and betting websites profiting from advising losing tips.

You can read the article in full here and whilst some of the phrasing at times I disagree with (for example I don’t think all tipsters involved are deliberately recommending losing tips – some after all are just bad at tipping) it serves to illustrate the problems that can confront you when seeking out quality tipping advice without expert guidance.

The problem the Guardian highlighted is one created by bookmakers who incentivise bad tipsters by offering a profit share of the losses their tips make from the customers they refer. This is done through what are termed ‘affiliate programs’ which are commonly used by many legitimate businesses across all kinds of industries.

Whilst I have no beef with affiliate programs per se – those that reward people with a profit share of losses are always going to be open to abuse and I am pleased to see this being clamped down on.

To illustrate the scale of the problem, this intriguing Football365 article made allegations about one particularly popular social media tipster with questions to answer on this front.

How To Avoid Tipster Scams

Frustrated by the bad name these loss-share tipsters are giving the industry, one long-running and highly respected racing tipster, Wayne, owner of the Northern Monkey Punter tipster service shared his own ‘signs of a bad tipster’ shortlist on Twitter.

And with Wayne’s permission, I have copied his ‘signs of a bad tipster’ shortlist below and added a few extra points of my own to watch out for!

16 Signs Of A Bad Tipster…

  1. Tipsters who ‘Boom’ on social media when they have a winner.
  2. Tipsters who don’t have a proper registered website or address for transparency. After all, if they don’t have the time and wherewithal to setup a website these days – how serious can they really be?
  3. Tipsters with a short history of past bets. You need many hundreds, if not thousands of past bets to see if a tipster has a long-term edge. Otherwise they might have just got lucky!
  4. Tipsters that post bets with bookmaker affiliate links. As the Guardian article outlines, this is a warning sign that they might be taking up to a 30% cut from any losing bets you place with the bookmaker they are recommending.
  5. Tipsters who don’t proof their advice to a trusted third party (like SBC) who can verify them as a genuine expert. Also ensures losers can’t be conveniently deleted.
  6. Tipsters that don’t put up their full history of results for you to view (not just the winners!).
  7. Racing Tipsters who settle bets at prices available 5pm the night before racing. Several high-profile tipsters do it, yet these prices are not obtainable to punters staking more than £20. Even if you can get on, you will have your stakes restricted and accounts closed quickly.
  8. Tipsters that settle bets with prices available with poorly rated firms who are quick to restrict punters with even a modicum of ability. The likes of Stan James, Boylesports & Betfred are 3 notorious for this practice.
  9. Tipsters that settle bets at one standout price with just one bookmaker. If following a popular tipster, the chance of you matching those odds are minimal.
  10. Tipsters that contact you via post – where exactly have they got your details from? Some claim they will pay you if you the bet loses and request commission on winners should it win. Its total rubbish. The reality – they’ll run a mile if the bet loses and you’ll never hear from them again.
  11. Tipsters that claim to have inside information. Many members of the public think racing is fixed and so some rogue tipsters try to play on that idea by claiming to have inside information. This information is almost always totally bogus and you are being taken for a ride.
  12. Tipsters with no concept of value. They put up the most likely winner of the race (even if a 1/4 favourite) and never discuss odds.
  13. Tipsters who give no reasoning behind their bets (system based tipsters can be excused here) but surely you want to know why a tipster fancies a bet before you place it?
  14. Tipsters who post doctored images of winning bet slips from unproofed bets. It’s very easy these days to make up ‘winning bet’ slips and you can’t take them at face value as proof of success.
  15. Tipsters who quote winning amounts totally out of context – for example ‘Service X has made £5000 during Ascot’ with no stakes given to put that figure into perspective. It’s just a headline grabbing exercise. What if you had to risk £500,000 to make that £5,000? That doesn’t look so good after all does it!
  16. Tipsters who provide no advice or guidance on betting bank management and a staking plan to follow. If they are making up this as they go – chances are they are doing the same with their tips.

My thanks to to Wayne for sharing these tips. For further reading on him – check out our 2016 case study of why we rate Wayne’s service so highly.

The Football Acca Tipster Up 55% ROI In 2 Seasons

.
A few months back I released details on the recommended football tipster making outstanding profits from his football acca (accumulator) tips.

Well the good news is this football guru has continued to ramp up the acca profits and he has just released a guide for the new football season to reveal all about his methods. (which you can download for free – details follow…)

The tipster in question is called Matchday Profits and as as one of the featured experts in our brand new 2017/18 Football Tipster Guide, its a great example of just how you can make money betting if following the right experts.

So far, Matchday Profits have made 133 points profit at 55% Return on Investment from acca betting alone with a 63% strike-rate of success! 

Download The Free ‘How To Win With Football Accas’ Guide

Matchday Profits is the brainchild of football betting guru, Paul Ruffy and we have been proofing his winning acca advice since the start of the 2015/16 season.

To showcase his profitable acca acumen, Paul has put together a free 12-page guide on his betting strategy for you to download.

>> Click Here To Get Your Free Guide <<

Within this free guide you can read:

  • How he has turned the tables on the bookies (who view acca punters as cash cows);
  • Why his method is safe to follow (he is not bonus bagging)
  • His ‘Bankers & Base’ acca strategy and how you can replicate it;
  • His performance with and without acca insurance;
  • The best ‘acca’ bookmakers to place your bets with.

 

133 Points Profit @ 55% ROI Last 2 Seasons!

I am happy to recommend Paul and his Matchday Profits service, having proofed and reviewed it on behalf of SBC members since it began.

I have been hugely impressed by his unique and sensible strategy to make a profit betting on football accas, which traditionally have been viewed by bookmakers as a very lucrative market (It attracts what they term ‘mug-punters’).

Paul has turned this on its head as his table of results below prove (presented both with and without the of ‘acca insurance’)

  • With Acca Insurance (whereby bookies refund your stakes if 1 leg of your acca loses) he has made 133.09 points profit at 55% ROI from 240 accas.
  • Even if betting without Acca insurance, you will still have made 73.29 points profit at 31% ROI.

You can read much more about his approach to acca betting and exactly why we rate his service so highly in his free guide.

Its a simple 12-page PDF that could make a massive difference to your football betting profits this season!

Tipster Lies & Statistics / Calculating Betting Bank Growth

“Lies, Damned Lies and Statistics” …So goes the well-known phrase made popular by Mark Twain on how people (usually politicians) use numbers to push forward weak arguments.

Yet it’s not just politicians who like to bend the truth with numbers, but also tipsters too, with some of the worst culprits playing fast and loose with their profit figures.

For example, here are just a few claims I received from various tipster spam mailing lists I seem to be on:

  • “102 points profit so far made in June”
  • “I made £2551 Profit in just 4 days”
  • “Earn £800 a week tax-free per week”

The problem with each of these claims is that they only discuss profit without any context.

You might have made 102 points profit in June, but it’s not much use if the first 5 months of the year lost 200 points is it?

Even if the service in question has a long-term profitable record (unlikely as its spam!) then how much money did they risk to make those 102 points profit?

After all, you wouldn’t want to be risking £200,000 to make that £800 a week would you? 

How To Put Tipster Results Into Context

So how exactly can you weigh up how valuable a tipster really is and put their profit figures into context?

Well, one of the best methods we advocate is working out its Return on Capital (ROC), which is sometimes also known as Betting Bank Growth.

This is a very effective calculation as it tells you how much your initial money will grow over a period of time.

Simply quoting 102 points profit means nothing, but 102% ROC – well that would indicate you have more than doubled your betting bank.

Here are a few examples to explain further…

  • Tipster A makes 50% ROC in a 6 month period
    If starting with £2000 you would now have a £1000 profit (50% ROC)
  • Tipster B makes a 150% ROC over the course of a football season
    If starting with £5000, you would now have a £7500 profit (150% ROC)
  • Tipster C makes a 300% ROC over a 2 year period
    If starting with £1000, you would now have a £3000 profit (300% ROC).

Why ROC Often Beats ROI!

For my money, working out the ROC or Return on Capital for any tipster often supersedes many other calculations, including Return on Investment (ROI)

ROI works out how much you have to stake to make your profit and whilst important, it is often ROC that provides even greater context.

As an example, check out the stats on the football tipster below, who over the course of 2 seasons has made a 8.8% ROI and 66.6 points profit from 824 bets.

WW300617_00

Now at first glance to some punters, this record seems OK at best. Only 66.6 points profit in 2 years at 8.08% ROI might seem fairly small in comparison to some other tipsters.

Yet, you would be wrong to ignore these stats and you will see why when I add in the ROC figures below.

WW300617_01

Due to the relatively high strike-rate and our suggested bank size, the ROC calculation comes in at 166.5% for the entire 2 season period

That’s 95.7% bank growth in 2015/16 and 70.8% bank growth in the 2016/17 season.

Starting with £2000 in 2015, you would have made a profit of £3,320 over the course of these 2 seasons.

I don’t know about you but if I could guarantee my betting bank would grow by 166% over the course of 2 seasons football betting, I would take that!

One Size Does NOT Fit All!

Despite all the above, you do need to be very careful when it comes to working out your betting bank sizes as some tipsters do not have a clue on what to advise!

I have seen several examples where a tipster has claimed a huge ROC, yet clearly have far too small a betting bank suggestion.

So small, that if following you would have bust your bank long before any profit is made.

All of which is why, here at SBC we set our own betting bank sizes for EVERY tipster we review, using a special simulator we developed to help calculate the optimum suggestion.

This simulator crunches the numbers for each tipster to arrive at a suggested betting bank figure that is realistic and fair.

Some tipsters don’t like this as we often recommend higher betting bank sizes to those they suggest.

Yet ultimately what is most important to us is providing you with fair and accurate betting bank suggestions you can stick to.

Have You Been Caught Out By These 5 Dodgy Tipster Practices?

.
Despite the Secret Betting Club‘s work over the years in trying to clean up and provide some regulation to the betting tipster scene, there are still sadly a number of tipster scams that continue to do the rounds.

Whilst the internet has helped in providing transparency and ease of access to good tipsters, it has also opened up new ways to rip off punters through the likes of social media, where unwitting people continue to get caught out.

To help protect you from some of these scams, I have put together a list of 5 of the most common dodgy tipster ploys to watch out for.

Varying from the outright scandalous to the somewhat dubious, it’s a quick rundown of what you as a punter need to be aware of before you join any tipster service.

Savings 468X60

Dodgy Tipster #1 – Selling Others Tips As Your Own

The inspiration for today’s article is the ‘tipster leech’ who sells off the exact same tips from other genuine experts as his own. Unable to figure out a way to win at betting himself, he simply copies others and leeches off the best – yet all the while pretending to be the expert in question.

After a few months, he invariably gets caught out and so constantly needs to reinvent himself and come up with something new for his mailing list (no doubt full of emails purchased without permission)

Not so long ago, I received a suspicious looking email from him advertising a new hyped wonder system and after analysing the ‘claimed’ results, I spotted identical tips as to those we at SBC have received from another genuine long-serving tipster.

It quickly became apparent that he was a subscriber to this tipster and was re-selling the tips on without permission (and at a pretty hefty fee too). Worst of all, he was supplying them later in the day and after much of the value in the bet had actually gone.

I duly notified the tipster in question who identified the culprit pirating the tips and removed him from his service.

Sadly, it won’t be the last I hear from this ‘tipster leech’ as he has been around for years, making up websites and false promises of tipping expertise on a regular basis. It highlights the care you must take when you get an email out of the blue promising the earth from a tipster service, especially one new on the scene.

Dodgy Tipster #2 – Social Media Tipsters

Social Media has come to dominate our lives over recent years and the likes of Twitter and Facebook continue to be a breeding group for tipster scams.

It’s easy to understand why as you can setup a new Facebook page or Twitter account in seconds, put up a bunch of tips and if they win – great, if they lose, just delete it.

This happens regularly, especially with bets like accas, which are hugely popular on Social Media. All you need do is simply create 10 accounts on Twitter or Facebook, put up a slightly different version of an acca on each one and boom, one of them will probably come good each weekend.

Sometimes the social media tipster actually wants you to lose as they take a cut from the losses incurred through bookmaker affiliate links (As when you lose, the bookies win)

It’s one reason we only proof or review tipsters who actually have a genuine website (not just a Social Media account) with at least 12 months of results to work with.

Be very, very careful therefore if you follow tipsters with a social media presence only.

Why Did You Join The Secret Betting Club?

“To find profitable tipsters and to read the guides available for SBC members on profitable betting. Before SBC, I’d followed various other systems and ratings, some successfully, but mostly unsuccessfully. SBC helps steer punters towards profitable and reliable tipsters. It’s great that SBC is independent too”

As written by ‘K’ – An SBC member for several years

Dodgy Tipster #3 – Claiming ‘Inside Information’

It’s the oldest trick in the book – claim to have ‘inside information’ about tips guaranteed to win and asking for people to stump up the cash in the hope of getting in on the action.

The sad reality is that even if accepting the fact there might be a very small number of people who do get inside info on certain horses to win a race – they are never going to share it with a stranger, no matter how convincing they sound or how much they charge.

In all the years working at SBC, we have discovered not one genuine ‘inside info’ based tipster worth bothering with.

They almost exclusively are all-mouth-no-trousers types with one goal – to fleece you of cash.

Dodgy Tipster #4 – Quoting Nonsense Prices With Nonsense Bookies

Sliding down the scale of dubious practices are the tipsters who continuously quote odds with bookies that no-one can realistically obtain.

Those tipsters that put up tips available only with bookies such as Boylesports, who according to the results of our Better Betting Campaign, either closed or severely restricted 82% of all surveyed betting accounts. Download our free Getting On’ Report for more on our campaign and survey that reveal these stats.

At the best of times, punters with even a hint of nous about them stand little or no chance getting on with the likes of Boylesports – even if you do, there is every chance if backing a winner your account will be closed.

Other firms consistently poorly rated for closing or restricting accounts include the likes of Stan James, Betway and Ladbrokes and tips put forward with them might not be obtainable for most punters.

So before you get too excited about any tipster, make sure you note which bookmakers they are quoting prices with. If its one of the four firms mentioned above, the chances of you getting a decent bet on are likely to be limited in the long-run.

Hugh Taylor – Are His Quoted Prices Realistic?

Although he isn’t a dodgy tipster (more one that puts up prices no one can realistically achieve), I have to question the likes of At The Races tipster – Hugh Taylor when he puts up tips with a standout price available only with Boylesports.

Just yesterday he put up Mucho Applause at a standout 50/1 with Boylesports – a horse that saw significant backing all the way into its eventual 16/1 SP (it came 7th). Here is the advice he put forward:

How many of his followers might have taken the 50/1 with Boylesports I wonder? Very few I imagine and those that had won’t find their accounts lasting too long if backing 50/1 shots that start at 16/1 SP.

Dodgy Tipster #5 – Silly Stakes & Results Out of Context

Finally, one of my biggest bugbears are those tipsters who quote profits to silly stakes such as 50 or 100 points, simply to make their profits look big.

It might make a great headline to say…”We made 1000 pts profit last month” but if you had to risk 100,000 points to make that – well its nothing to shout about at all. That is just a 1% return on investment (ROI)

Tipsters that constantly claim results out of context wind me right up because it is so misleading and often it’s a sign they are to avoided at all costs.

As a minimum, from any tipster, you should expect to see full results stats including number of bets, amount staked, total profit and key calculations such as return on investment and return on capital.

Putting their results into an accurate context so you can judge just how good they REALLY are.

That’s The Bad, How About The Good?

Hopefully the 5 points above will give you a good steer on some of the more popular dodgy tipster practices out there currently and what to avoid.

If however, you are looking for actually bonafide, genuine tipsters then here at the Secret Betting Club we can help you.

We work full-time on not only reviewing the best new tipsters, but also tracking the ones that continue to make money betting for SBC members.

Ranking and reviewing each tipster not only by their profits, but also how realistically achievable their odds are, how good their customer service is and many other factors. Click here to read all about our exhaustive review and rating process.

Let’s break it all down and take a closer look at each of these steps…

Step 1: Getting the best prices – opening bookmaker accounts 

A common mistake punters make is not attaching enough importance to the odds they’re getting on their bets.

Often this is because they open just one bookmaker account and then use that firm to place all of their bets.  Whilst the bookies love this ‘brand loyalty’, as a punter this approach will only lose you money.

Taking odds of 5/2 on a horse instead of 3/1 doesn’t sound as if it should make too much difference to your bottom line.  But over time, it makes a massive difference.  At £50 stakes, it’s a difference of £25 profit for every bet that wins– which all adds up.

It is therefore hugely important to shop around and get the best prices you possibly can, and to do that you need to have a choice of bookmakers that you can bet with.

Also – it’s well worth maximizing your usage of the Best Odds Guaranteed (BOG) concession, which according to Oddschecker, is now available with 18 different horse racing bookies.

BOG ensures that if you take a price on a horse and it drifts out, then you will be paid at the longer SP should it win. Another reason to have accounts with all 18 bookies to ensure you benefit from this whilst you can.

The other reason to hold as many accounts as possible is to spread your winnings around different bookmakers. It is a reality that in today’s modern betting world, bookmakers sniff out people who they think might have an edge over them and close or limit your accounts.

One obvious way to avoid this is not to keep flogging the same bookmaker with every bet…especially when they win!

Winning £1800 with one bookie in a short space of time will probably see you attract their attention, yet winning £100 across 18 different accounts will probably not.

Step 2: Choosing the right tipsters TO SUIT YOU! 

Whilst the Secret Betting Club can help you when it comes to identifying the best tipsters – choosing the right tipsters to actually suit you is incredibly important.

This is because not every tipster will be right for your circumstances – whether it be the time of bet release, quantity of bets, price, strike-rate of any number of things.

Let’s say for example, you decide to sign up to a racing tipster who release their tips at 10am every morning.

If at this time of day you are working and unable to place bets until, say lunchtime…well then you might find the odds on the tips have shortened considerably. Thus meaning you have missed out on the value identified by your tipster.  And if you’re not betting at value prices, you WILL lose money in the long run.

Instead you should focus on tipsters that put up tips at lunchtime (and there are plenty out there that do this).

Your attitude to risk and expectations on how quickly you want to make a profit should also help you choose the right tipsters

If, for example you hate losing, then a profitable tipster that picks out bets at an average price of 10/1, might not sit well with your psychological profile.

If, for example only 15% of their 10/1 bets win – that will undoubtedly mean relatively long losing runs at times. In this scenario, you may well find yourself being worn down mentally, possibly to the point where you make expensive mistakes with your betting.


Step 3: Spreading the risk. 

Diversification is everything.  As with any form of serious investment, spreading the risk is vital for long term success.

Within the Bet Diary blog that Rowan writes, you can follow his ongoing ups and downs of following a portfolio of tipster services to make money.

Here’s a brief breakdown of the services being followed:

  1. A racing tipster form reader who tips primarily on the flat/all weather.
  2. A second racing tipster who tips exclusively over the jumps.
  3. A third racing tipster that backs selections between 7/4 and 3/1 only
  4. A golf tipster that provides advice for all major tournaments
  5. A football service that concentrates on the English domestic leagues.

You can see that either the method, or the area of specialty, is different with each service.  In other words, there is minimal correlation between the way each of the services operate.  This avoids the situation whereby a large and disproportionate stake is being placed on one market or sport.

As ever the old proverb rings true – don’t put all your eggs in one basket!

Step 4: Recording the results and making a profit. 

If you want to make your betting a success, keeping an accurate record of results is essential, so that at any given moment in time the exact profit and loss position can be seen.

Looking at the portfolio of five services in Step 3, how did they perform over the past 12 months?

Taking a look at the results from April 1st, 2016 to March 31st 2017 tells us all:

  1. 76.68pts profit, ROI 8.8%, ROC 95.8%.
  2. 4.33pts profit, ROI 11%, ROC 8.6%.
  3. *22pts profit, ROI 5.9%, ROC 22%. (*only followed since August).
  4. 122.1pts profit, ROI 16.9%, ROC 61%.
  5. 18.62pts profit, ROI 12.9%, ROC 37.3%.

In this example, Rowan’s greatest profit in terms of Betting Bank Growth – The ROC originated from Service 1 and 4, whilst the smallest ROC profit came from Service 2.

It might be that he wishes to allocate more funds to the most profitable and evaluate those at the other end of the scale to understand if he should continue to follow them.

It is only by keeping an individual record of performance for each tipster that you can understand your portfolio’s strengths and weaknesses.

Why You Should SERIOUSLY Consider Betting On Tennis

If you have yet to consider betting on Tennis, then the tipster reviewed in the latest SBC Magazine (Issue 100) might make you think twice!

With 135.8% Betting Bank Growth (ROC) since March 2016 and with achievable odds in markets where bookmakers don’t restrict you – it’s easy to understand our interest!

Coupled with a high strike-rate, the ability to bet via the Exchanges PLUS the fact it can fill the void in a quiet summer for football betting – I want to urge you to check out our latest review!

Allow me to share some more details on what we uncovered in this latest tipster review and just why you need to consider betting on Tennis…

Savings 468X60

135.8 Points Profit (10.6% ROI) Since March 2016

First and foremost, the only reason we are interested in any tipster is the ability to make a profit betting and this Tennis tipster ticks all the boxes in that respect.

Since he first began in March 2016, he has provided 1,286 tips and made a 135.8 point profit at 10.6% ROI (Return on Investment).

For those of you interested in betting bank growth, the ROC (Return on Capital) is an equally impressive 135.8%.

More than doubling your betting bank if following since he started.

Achievable Odds & No Restrictions/Closures

Profitable results aside, there are several other reasons why you need to consider Tennis betting:

  • Bet On The Exchanges Or Via Asian Bookies
    As this tipster focuses on the main ATP tennis tournaments, this allows you to bet via the exchanges such as Betfair and Matchbook, where liquidity is strong. Those of you with access to ‘Asian’ bookies such as Pinnacle Sports and SBOBet can also get your bets on.
  • Easy To Get Your Bets On! (Less Restrictions)
    Unlike sports such as Horse Racing where it can be a right battle to get your bets accepted by the bookie, it is generally a LOT easier to place a tennis bet. Even with some of the usual high-street bookie suspects that limit your ability to place racing bets.
  • High Strike-Rate Of Winners
    Another benefit this tipster provides is his high strike-rate for success, which sits at 48.4% long-term.  Just under every 1 in 2 bets you place will go onto win.
  • Short Losing Runs
    No-one likes losing and the high strike-rate also ensures that any bad runs are relatively short. The worst calendar month loss stands at just -8.3 points in January 2017. This loss was quickly made back and 2017 now stands at +36.1 points profit after an exceptional run of form.
  • Bet Throughout The Summer
    This Summer, there is no World Cup, Euros or even Copa America to enjoy and bet on, so it promises to be a quiet one for football fans! Yet, there will be plenty of Tennis matches and tournaments to fill the betting void with.
  • Diversify Your Portfolio
    If you follow a few tipsters then its important to diversify the sports and markets you bet on. Tennis is a great way to do this and avoid over-reliance on just one sport like horse racing or football.

4 Reviewed Tipsters Up Over £26K Profit Last Year (After Subs Fees!)

Last week saw the release of the very latest Tipster Profit Report, featuring details on 4 new ‘Hall of Fame’ rated tipsters making serious profits.

An SBC Hall of Fame award is only given to those tipsters we fully recommend – it’s an accolade we certainly don’t dish out lightly!

Yet when you consider that the 4 combined have made a profit AFTER subscription fees of £26,384 to our suggested betting banks – it’s easy to see why they deserved the upgrade. Especially considering the fact those fees average just £143 per month.

Allow me to explain more…

£26,384 Profit For Just A £143 Monthly Outlay

In each Tipster Profit Report, we publish ‘Suggested Profits’ tables, which help to outline the realistic profits all of our Hall of Fame tipsters are making.

These are based on our ‘Suggested Betting Bank’ recommendations that indicate the profits you can make if following our betting bank advice.

Using these suggested betting banks, below you can read the EXACT figures from the 4 new Hall of Fame-rated tipsters over the past 12 months.

WW240317

The headline figure to watch out for here is the combined profit of £26,384 for all 4 of these tipsters from the past 12 months. This is generated from a £143 monthly outlay (a figure already deducted off the £26,384 profit tally) and a total of £10,500 set aside as a betting bank.

Of course, you don’t need to follow our suggested betting bank sizes – you can make a clear profit with each tipster if using smaller betting banks.

As per some of the other ratings included here…

Service Intensity details how much time a service will take out of your day to follow. A high intensity rating suggests a tipster that advises several tips every day vs. a low intensity tipster that might put up just 1 tip per day.

The monthly cost is the average subscription fee payable to the tipster for their advice and the start date is when they started out tipping. Finally, the SBC trial or discount column, lists those tipsters either offering SBC members a preferential deal, be it a free-trial or exclusive saving.

More On Each Of The 4 Tipsters

Although the exact identities of each tipster is protected for Secret Betting Club members only (The ‘Secret’ part of our name in action!) below you can read a quick snapshot of just why we rate them so highly below…

Tipster 1
£2000 made a £7,991 profit after fees in the last 12 months.
788% Bank Growth since July 2014
£1 60-day trial available

The first tipster in our list is a racing expert we have been tracking since July 2014, during which time he has proofed 2770 bets and made an exceptional ROI of 25.44%.

Perhaps most impressively is the betting bank growth, which since 2014 sits at 788% – you would have grown your investment nearly 8 times during this period!

If you are interested in this tipster, you can enjoy a 60 day free trial for just £1, with access to our Tipster Savings.

Tipster 2
£3500 made a £4783 profit after fees in the last 12 months.
442% Bank Growth since October 2013

Over the course of 2457 bets, they have made a 16.77% ROI, although in the last year they have upped that significantly to 31.64% ROI thanks to a string of big winners.

Once again, you can save on this tipster with a 50% discount on your first months membership if an SBC member.

SBC 99 468X60

Tipster 3
£2000 made a £8258 profit after fees in the last 7 months
449% Bank Growth since July 2016

The 3rd and final racing tipster entered into our Hall of Fame this month has been making some mindboggling profits in a very short space of time – with 449% bank growth in just 7 months.

Tipping up plenty of bets every day (between 15 and 20 on average) it’s only for the more full-time punters amongst you, especially considering they have put up 4670 tips since July 2016.

The standard of performance has been excellent and over such a large set of data, they are unquestionably Hall of Fame standard.

Tipster 4
£3000 made a £5082 profit after fees in the last 12 months
421% Bank Growth since December 2014

Last but certainly not least, the final tipster upgraded into the Hall of Fame this month is a South American football expert making some serious profits for followers.

Over the course of 1582 tips, he has made a 8.26% ROI from his must-follow advice, which in these easy-to-get-on football markets is an excellent return indeed!

Has been in especially good form over the last 6 months, making 132% Bank Growth from 434 bets during this period.
