Back Lucrative

This is a horse racing backing service that targets value bets so should, by definition, be a profitable long term service.

Membership costs £39 per month with cheaper options for quarterly and annual subscriptions. Selections are posted in the members area at 10.20am-10.30am each morning, and averages 8-10 bets per day, 6 days per week with Sundays off.

It’s recommended to place the bets as soon as they are posted, using BOG bookies, in order to get the best value prices. Placing the bets takes about 10-15 minutes and you’re done for the day.

Since the service targets high priced winners, losing runs are to be expected and therefore a betting bank of 200 points is advised. The average strike rate is 16%.

The website is very clear and easy to use, and there is a handy video for newbies showing you how to get set up. I also found that their responses to questions was prompt and helpful.

As usual I’m running this as a three month trial initially but due to the nature of this type of betting I’ll probably run it for at least a year to give it a fair innings, as backing long shots can, and does, produce losing months so a long term view has to be taken.

Here’s the first months results betting to £10 level stakes:
15th November- 19th December:

Bets: 302
Successful : 58
Unsuccessful: 244
Strike Rate: 19.2%
Avg Odds: 7.83
Profit: £194.70

Ultimate Profits

Ultimate profits is a tipping service from the Probetting Club. It is a backing service that is based on hunting out big priced winners in the UK markets and operates all year round on all 3 codes namely Flat Turf, All Weather and the National Hunt. The system costs £59 per month or there is a reduction to £49 per month if paying quarterly. Addtionally a Betfair account is required as all the action takes place on this site.

Since its inception in September 2013 the service claims to have had 10 winning months and 3 losing months to date. However that bald statistic somewhat disguises the staggering claim of some 2,252points profit at advised stakes. This system will not be for everyone as there are some fairly long losing runs but equally these are offset by some rather large returns.

Users log in everyday to the site and via password provided download the daily selections. The quantity of these selections varies between 10 and up to 40 on busy days. There is one simple filter that all selections must pass to qualify as a bet and the user either can sit in front of the computer through the racing day or use a bot.The system comes with the instructions on settings to enable the selections to run on Bet Engine.

So for those people who have a VPS system running then it’s a simple load onto Bet Engine and get on with your life. In fact given the losing runs and advised staking plan this is probably the best solution as it would I think be possible to panic at times and skip qualifying selections. Trust in the in daily selections is paramount. However Probetting Club is well run and having trialled two other services I would be confident in their claims for Ultimate Profits.

I started receiving selections on 18th September and set myself a 300 point bank with the intention of following the advised staking plan as opposed to the more cautious level stakes system. In my case I am using a paper betting bank of £600 /£2 per point as many potential users may find £10 per point and the £3000 bank a stretch.


The system during the 13 week trial which ran from the Flat season through the transition into the NH and AW season ,which for many systems is fraught with losses, produced a profit of £456.31. This was a gain of some 76% on our starting bank of £600 – although one needs to take out 3 months of subscriptions and the recommended Bet Engine fees.This would reduce the profit down to some £300 but even then we are still left looking at a gain of 50%. If operated with Bet Engine there is very little effort required by the user to generate these returns.

This a system has produced a handsome return on the initial investment of £600 and if the betting bank were allowed to build up the the fees would then assume a smaller portion of the profits.I have no hesitation in recommending the Ultimate Profits system as a Pass.Approved2

Ultimate Profits

This is the review of the 3rd and final month of the trial of Ultimate Profits and covers the period from 13 Nov to 17 Dec inclusive.

Week Nine 13-19 Nov

I had 61 qualifying selections during the week and from these there were 3 winners all on the 13th in fact so not such an  unlucky day after all.I had an advised 2 point 46.0 win an advised  4 pointer at 36.0 and finally a 1 point 34.38 shot.

The rest of the week was a series of losers and I had a run of 57 which really  came as no  suprise given the average strike rate of the system has been historically some  4 %.In fact some people might well have thought after such a one day cluster of wins to give the rest of the week a swerve and sit on the profits.

Week Nine  Summary: Open bank £1024.72  Close £1174.15

Week Ten 20-26 Nov

A total of 51 selections qualified this week and I had 1 winner a 1 point 20.18 shot on the 26th  and thus had a losing run through the week of 42.

Week Ten  Summary: Open bank £1174.15  Close £990.59

Week Eleven 26 Nov- 3 Dec

During the week 40 selections qualified and I again had 1 winner on the 1st Dec a 5 point advised at 25.42.The longest losing run was from the 26 Nov through to 1 Dec and was 22.

Week Eleven  Summary: Open bank £990.59  Close £1072.58

Week Twelve 4- 10 Dec

Once again i had 40 qualifying selections as small fields seemed the order of the week and again had 1 win a 1 point 35.91 shot on 5th Dec.My longest losing run in the week was 27.

Week Twelve  Summary: Open bank £1072.58  Close £992.91

Week Thirteen 11-17 Dec

In this the final week of the trial I had 38 selections that qualified and from these there were 2 winners -the first of which was an advised  4 pointer at  21.0.The system then followed up on the 13th Dec with a 1 point 27.0 winner.

The longest losing run in the week was 21.

Week Thirteen  Summary: Open bank £992.91  Close £1056.31

The Diff Code Europe

The Diff Code Europe is a trading system from Thames Publishing who is currently offering a 45 day risk free trial.

As with their Diff Code Oil product, you get a very well written system manual explaining exactly what the Diff code is, and how to trade it, and you get a login to a member’s website where you check each morning before 8am UK time for that days signal.

The signal is either Green buy signal, where you are given the Stop Loss and Limit figures, an Amber signal which is no trade, or a Red sell signal, again with stop and limit figure given.

So all you do is check the website, and place the trade if there is one, or close a trade if you are already in one and the signal changes.

That’s pretty much it. It takes less than 10 minutes a day and there is no monitoring of the markets as the trades either go on to win, or hit the stop loss.

If you decide to keep using the Diff Code after 45 days then you are given, on request, the full system details so that you can work out the trades for yourself (takes 10 minutes apparently), and therefore don’t need to rely on the signals, although, obviously it’s quicker and easier to just pick up the daily signal.

To test this system I’m using a £2000 trading bank and risking 5% on each trade for a period of three months.

Week 1:

Three trades, all losing… -£106.08, -£25.30 and -£14.50

I’ve been watching this system for a while and it’s been very successful so sods law seems to have taken hold with a full loss on my first trade followed by two reduced losses later in the week. Let’s hope for a better week next week.

Total profit: -£145.88

Winning Day Trader

It’s typical isn’t it? The moment I decide to change my strategy and reduce my staking, we have a bumper week.

December Week 2:   1,067.5 points!

Had I carried on with my £10 per pip stakes that would have been £10,675.

That took the profit for December up to 327.5 points overall.

But it gets better than that… so far this week we are 427 points up, taking us to 754 points for the month and with only one losing trade out of the last 22.

I’m hoping this change in fortune is here to stay.

Pre Match Trading

I’ve had access to this very neat tool for around a week now and am slowly getting to grips with it.

It’s from the same people that produced the brilliant FOOTBALL SCANNER  I reviewed and approved a few months ago and TRADING THE HORSES that Graham reviewed and is very keen on indeed.

It functions very much along similar lines to the horse trading service, in that you log into a website on your browser and access all the action from there. So there’s nothing to download and it’ll function for both Windows and Mac etc.

How it works is by comparing prices available at Spread Betting firms and on the ball firms like Pinnacle (with SBO being added soon) they can make a prediction as to where the Betfair price should be and compare it to where it actually is at that moment.

It seems to work best on the Under/Over and Correct Score markets and enables you to grab a ticks a few at a time as the price moves. You can then close out your trade and recycle the money straight back into another trade and build up a very decent little profit. All trades are to be closed before kick off, you never take them in-play.

This is not an area of trading I am particularly well versed in, so I’m probably the ideal type of person to try this software out.

There a lots of tutorial videos to watch before you need to sign up and there’s a chat room on the site giving you access to far more experienced traders who really know what they’re doing and do seem willing to share their knowledge. A good few of the videos seem to relate to earlier versions of this software and I was advised by one of the owners to watch the first 6 videos to get a firm grip of the idea and to watch the others later to improve ideas. The software has been available for around 4 years and they say it has been a money spinner in each of those years.

You can also opt in to an email service that provides you with some likely looking trades a couple of times a week. These emails are extremely easy to understand and give you the exact game, markets and prices to look for. You can then check that the prices tally and back/lay to grab 1 tick at a time. It sounds like a tiny amount but when you can do it several times it soon mounts up.

The subscription price is very reasonable, starting at £20 for 14 days members with discounts available for 3 and 6 month options.

As its performance is going to be purely down to how I play trades, I’m not going to run a blog trial in full but I will give updates over the next 3-4 weeks as to how I’m progressing before giving a final verdict. So far, I am intrigued and impressed but I know I’m not getting full experience until I spend a longer period of time in the chat room. I’ve been trying to fly solo as much as possible to try and get a reasonable level of familiarity with the software before venturing in too much but now feel I’m about ready to take the plunge.

I’ve been recording results for this service for 3 full months and it’s now time to end the trial and give a final verdict.

First of all, the final week of the trial was yet another profitable one with around 16 points of profit added.

There’s no point beating around the bush, this service has been fantastic throughout the entire 3 month trial. It has never ended a day below our 50 point starting bank. Given the market it operates in and the prices selections are available at, that is a remarkable achievement.

We end the trial at the highest point the bank has been.

After the weekend’s bets the level stake profit is 99.05 points

If you had recalculated stakes to 50 points at the end of each betting day your profit would have been an enormous 174.03 points.

The full End Of Trial figures are:

BETS 376


S/R 22.07%

AV ODD 6.12

PROFIT 99.05 points

ROI 26.34%

Brilliant figures for a football tipping service, where no trading is involved whatsoever. It is purely bet & forget.

The basic subscription price is just £14.99 a month, with this option you obtain selections from a private members Facebook page.

You can also receive selections via email, this option costs £19.99 a month.

There are discounts available to both plans for longer term subscriptions.

Selections are normally available by lunchtime at the latest.

This really is the best football tipping service I’ve come across.

It’s one of the easiest APPROVED verdicts I’ve ever given to a tipping service.

I will be continuing to monitor its performance and plan to give updates every few months.Approved2

A quiet week for this service with very few qualifying bets. Those that we did have repeated the cycle we’re becoming used to, a number of wins then a loss wiping out all gains ending back where we started.




S/R 78%

STAKING PLAN -2.27 points

LEVEL STAKES  -1.01 points

Racing Consultants

I’ve been looking at Racing Consultants from Rory Delargy and David Massey. This is a tipster service that, at time of writing, costs £29.95 per month or £199 for the year.

The selections, if there are any, are emailed the mid-morning. Sometimes selections were posted the evening before when prices were expected to collapse.

A 100 point bank is advised and the email contains staking recommendations. Sometimes doubles, trixies and reverse forecasts & tricasts are advised too.

The trial ended 103 points up. At £10 per point this covers subscription costs with a healthy profit. The service has been as high as 112 points up but was 9 points down too at the start of the trial.

Looking at the odds advised, the odds available when I read the emails and Betfair SP, there’s not too bad correlation: Average advised odds is 8.83, I got an average of 9.05 and BSP averaged 9.24. So Betfair prices may be an option, but with the doubles, trixies and forecasts in the service placing bets with BOG Bookies is a viable option too. If I could get matched at close to the advised odds, I’d probably use an exchange as the bets are mostly straight win and each-ways, so you need to protect against being gubbed by the bookies.

The size of the profit £900 to £10 stakes after subscription, £2475 profit to £25 stakes there should be no surprise that this service gets an approved rating.Approved2
