Robobets is a new tipping service that comes with a free betting bot that puts the bets on for you. Now I’ve tried a few services like this in the past, one quite recently which I will do a one off review for, and up to now none have managed to deliver the goods. These kinds of services are always tempting because they require little or no work on behalf of the subscriber as you are in effect allowing your Betfair account to be managed by the service provider. Of course they never get direct access to your account, as this isn’t allowed by Betfair, but Betfair does allow individual betting bots where the user controls the on/off switch, so to speak.
The last service I tested about a month ago lost me £500 in about three weeks. As soon as the first £200 was lost my e-mails didn’t get a reply and once the rest of the money was lost, the actual website disappeared (hence my not hurrying to do a review of it). So when I got an e-mail from Robobots asking me to review their service I thought “here we go again”.
I have, however, been pleasantly surprised of my experience so far. The unique selling point of this particular service, and one I’ve never seen before, is that you don’t actually pay anything until you’ve won at least £100. Yes, you read that right.
So you register for a free account at the website and download the betting bot. The whole process is very well explained with pictures for each step and you are up and running within about five or ten minutes. From then on all you have to do is run the bot each morning and leave it to, hopefully, make you some money.
The deal is that once the bot has made you £100 you are then asked to pay a subscription for the service. You get to choose what subscription level you want but for the purposes of this test, if I make £100 I’ll go with the basic subscription and build it up as my betting bank increases. So once I get the betting bank from £400 to £1000, I’ll increase the subscription to the next level which should, in theory, increase the monthly winnings and take me up to the next level and so on.
All this sounds good in theory but how does it work in practice?
Well I started this three days ago and my first day was a losing day, although I did have a high odds winner, I had a lot of losers and it ended up costing me £12. Not too bad actually. The next day was more exciting. I made £50 profit and bearing in mind the bot is only betting at £2 stakes, that’s pretty impressive. Yesterday was another winning day netting me £24 profit so I’ve already made £62 profit in three days at £2 bets… interesting!
Having conversed with the director, Clive Roberts, it appears that this is actually quite normal. There are ten paid subscription packages available, the top one offering a monthly profit guide of £15,000. Hmmm… sounds a bit hopeful to me but I’ll give it a go, especially if it pays for itself along the way. Are we going to crash and burn in the next few weeks or is this the golden goose? Well, so long as it’s free I’m happy to find out.
