BetHawk (Revisited) – Final Review

The final month (month 6) of BetHawk was very encouraging. DPcm9 gained 223.58 pts over the monthly period: August 2nd to September 1st. The bank finally stands at 1002.24 pts. Also  the official DP9 system had a  gain of  253.38 pts during this same period, ending overall at 919.67 pts.  Both my DPcm9 results and the official DP9 results quoted here are from live Betfair accounts.

Operation of the BetHawk robot  (and also the VPS)  have remained flawless. There has only been one day when the robot was down and this was at  the point of service for maintenance.

Here are the bets from DPcm9 for the sixth month of testing:

Now for the stats:
Starting Bank: 1000 pts

Lowest Bank: 750.42 pts

Highest Bank: 1147.24 pts

Number of Betting Days: 189 out of a possible 190

Total Number of Bets: 8681

Winning Months: 2/6

Losing Months: 4/6

Current Bank: 1002.24 pts

Total Profit/Loss:  2.24 pts

Return on Bank:  0.22%

At £2 a point, we have a gross profit of only £4.48. Taking into account the six month cost of the software  (£330)  for the basic stake of  £2 per point, there is a net loss of £325.52. Furthermore, if you need to purchase a VPS to run the software that would have cost about another £90.

 

Two software programmes come with BetHawk:

The first one is Hawk Config and it  is completely free . With it one can examine the  results from  24 individual micro-systems or any selection of individual micro-systems (the service Portfolios or your own)  over the past year or longer.  Examination of the Hawk Config  results over the same time period as my trial gives a final bank for DPcm9 of  992.27 pts. This is very close to my own result of 1002.24 pts; bearing in mind there were 8681 bets in this period. The Hawk Config  results are therefore reliable. The second software programme is Hawk Bot, which you purchase and it places the bets automatically for you with betfair using the micro-systems  that one has selected with Hawk Config.

Using the free Hawk Config software, we can see  how the Dynamic Portfolios have performed.  Anyone who had followed those portfolios using the basic £2 stake through the different versions from 01-08-13 (starting date of portfolios) to 31-08-14 would have had a net return, after paying subscription costs, of:

DP5 -£160.82
DP6 £48.36
DP7 £81.08
DP8 £273.74
DP9 £110.92

DPcm9 £272.14

 

If they had used the max stake possible of £50 per system the same figures would be (again accounting for subscription costs):

DP5 £7,009.00
DP6 £13,528.50
DP7 £15,636.50
DP8 £21,743.00
DP9 £18,962.50

DPcm9 £23,118.5

 

Taking into account the performances of  DPcm9 (and DP9) in my own six month live account trial, the substantial recovery in the last month and the performance of the system portfolios over the last 12 months, I am awarding BetHawk a Neutral Rating.  The jury is still out whether BetHawk is profitable over the long term.  I will  continue to assess BetHawk  and I will provide further updates.

UPDATE 30th March 2015

One Year On.

BetHawk is a betting robot with a selection of 24 micro-sytems and it allows you to select any combination of them at varying stakes depending on your subscription level.

Free downloadable software, BetHawk Config, allows you to check the performance of any of the micro-systems and combinations therein from initial release to the current date.

During the course of one year I followed DP9, which is  one of the  recommended portfolios consisting  of 9 microsytems. The microsystem make up of DP9 was adjusted on a number of occasions.  Unfortunately this did not lead to a postive outcome. There was a loss of 431.32 points from March 2nd 2014 to March 1st 2015.

The robot did perform flawlessly and was easy to operate. It was only down for an odd day here and there, due to software upgrades at BetHawk.  Some individual micro-systems such as Cairo 04.1 did profit (43.56  pts) over the trial period.Failed

As I was following DP9, I have to fail this robot. It should now be reclassified from neutral to failed.
