I have been trialling this service for three months. The claim is;
“Banker Bets is a brand new service focussed on low-odds, high strike rate betting designed to steadily increase your bank at minimal risk.
From August 14th, 2014 through June 30th, 2015 this highly selective form of betting has achieved 247% profit on the starting bank betting at level stakes!
There have been 10 profitable months out of 11 and an average profit of 22.45% of starting bank per month.
That’s just betting at level stakes, and those who are willing to take a slightly more aggressive approach and compound their winnings have already seen profit of well over 500%!”
The bets placed are in the win markets for football, tennis, American football and basketball, although neither of the last two categories were covered in the testing period due to seasonal timing.
John operates from some exotic location in Asia. The bets are sent through by email, always with plenty of notice and usually in the morning for those of us in the UK. What you get with the selection is the reasoning behind the picks. Occasionally you will get a win double. Obviously the odds are always skinny, and so when a losing bet is encountered, it will take 3 or 4 bets to recover.
There is much to admire about the service. It is as transparent as it can be, results are recorded to average available odds – there aren’t many services I know of which do that – and winning runs can be very long indeed (a few around 20).
The service has encountered only one losing month and, wouldn’t you just know it, that was during the testing period in May. What was really impressive about this was that the service recovered from a 37% deficit on the bank at the end of May to the current level of 19.4% profit. The French Open tennis bets took a few hits, as did some of the Scandinavian football bets. So from 128 bets, the profit of 19.4% doesn’t look overwhelmingly successful – but taking into account the 37% drawdown, it was robust enough to stage a recovery, and I can see it continuing in that vein.
The 19.4% profit was made to level stakes – the advice is to compound, and the compounded stakes made slightly less profit at 18.6%. However, the BEST available odds, compounded, returned a profit of 67%.
The service won’t be for everyone. I tend to view it like a laying service. You can expect to win most of your bets (83% since the start of the service), but when you lose, your loss will take a few wins to recover from. By compounding the bank to suggested 10%, you would have made over 500% profit in under a year without breaking into a sweat. So it’s more a service for the pros and well-disciplined, and if you fancy turning £1k into £5k in a year, you could give this a go – leave it in for a further year and… well you do the maths!
Negatives – there aren’t really any to put you off. I am always a little bit wary of one man band services – you have to rely on the circumstances of the individual and none of us knows where those circumstances might take us – but the cost of the service is hardly an issue from a continuation point of view. And with compounding – well, you’re not ACTUALLY going to be compounding at 10%; you’ll be rounding up or down. I did try and run this on Betfair and whilst that IS possible, I found the back odds minus commission couldn’t keep up with the average bookie odds – I also found some of the bookies didn’t like the bets, but that is an ongoing issue for those of us on the bookies’ radar.
My overall impression is that this is an excellent service; well-reasoned, easy to operate and transparent. AND the cost is a very reasonable £27 per month, there is currently a 75% discount available on the first month and a 30 day 100% no quibble money back guarantee.
I have no hesitation in putting this service in the RECOMMENDED category.
