That’s what you would have averaged in clear profit each month over the last 5 months backing the Value Machine selections to £10 level stakes.
The Value Machine is the (sort of) new offering from Kieran Ward over at Make Your Betting Pay.
It’s the first time he’s made new spaces on The Value Machine generally available in a good few years – and his decision has been prompted by some game changing upgrades and improvements to the software
It is a super simple web based software with nothing to download and it finds ultra-profitable value bets literally at the click of a button.
You can set it up to find exactly the kind of bets that fit your risk profile and you can even get it to automatically send those selections direct to your phone via the Telegram app.
If you feel like being cautious, you can even paper trade the selections it finds for 30 days, safe in the knowledge that if you are unhappy for any reason whatsoever, Kieran will give you every penny back.
And you can ‘suck it and see’ at a massive discount with a 14 day trial
I am currently running a trial on Slam Dunk Wizard.
As the name suggests, this a Basketball tipping service. It is part of the Betting Gods stable of tipsters.
A bank of 75 points is recommended and subscription costs £27 per month, a trial membership is available for £1.99.
Selections arrive via email, you receive one early in the morning (U.K time) and one mid/late evening.
Unlike most basketball services, this one tends to avoid the NBA and the vast majority of bets so far have been on European leagues.
All emails are really clearly laid out and easy to follow, I was briefly a little confused as the selections are given as either Home or Away and that can be a bit abiguous. It can vary whether the Home selections is the first named (as per our football etc) or second as per the “@” method used by the likes of NBA, NFL. But it quickly becomes apparent that the way email is laid out that the first named team is designated “Home”
I have been recording results for almost 2 weeks now and we’ve bounced around the break even mark, by coincidence the most we’ve been in either direction is 5 points. We are currently just over 3 points down.
An up and down couple of weeks for this service since the last update.
He has now switched almost exclusively to basketball. Things had been going quite well, the bank increased to almost 20 points of profit, but sadly he hit a bad couple of days and most of that was given back.
We now stand at around 6 points in the black, with another fortnight of the trial left.
I am starting a 13-week trial of John Burke’s Consistent Profits, a win-only horse racing tipster. It is a companion to John’s Victor value service that we reviewed and approved way back in 2014. This service looks at shorter-priced horses that should win more often.
The average price of selections is 4/1 and as you can see from the chart the profit has been consistent over nearly 3 years.
Selections are received via email, or you can log in to a member’s area on the website. There is a brief justification of each selection along with an advised price. All stakes are to 1 point.
As per normal for me, I will record the advised and BSP prices. I do not use BOG as it is a perk that can be withdrawn by the bookmaker. Betfair wins have 2% commission deducted.
Today marks the end of my three month trial subscription of Blueblood Racing.
Anyone who has followed my updates on this service will already know what the verdict is going to be.
To re-cap; This service is a racing tipster from the Tipsters Empire stable, subscription costs £34.99 a month with discounts for longer sign up periods. Tips are received via SMS message the evening before racing, this is then followed up by an email within a few minutes and then a further email the next day giving a (very) comprehensive write up of why the horse has been selected.
Staking is very cautious, we have had a lot of half point each way bets at relatively low prices. The biggest bets we’ve had have been two point win bets and we’ve only had nine of those during the trial.
To the figures, Win Only bets have a strike rate of 40%, Each Way bests receive a return of some sort on 49% of bets. The overall Win strike rate is around 30%. A profit of 84 points has been made during the trial, that’s a very handy £840 at our standard £10 a point staking.
Are there any problems with it? Well, I think he’s becoming a bit of a victim of his own success. The prices he quotes in the nightly SMS message ARE available but you have to be quick, they disappear fast. I have checked on Oddschecker and the prices were there but, within 5 to 10 minutes, they’re being cut across the board.
The daily email with write ups is fascinating, I really like them. I really like this whole service.
This is, to nobody’s surprise, APPROVED with bells on.
We had a message from Richard, the Blueblood Racing Tipster, regarding this review:
I understand your concerns regarding my service, but in my defence if you don’t mind me touching upon, can I mention a few aspects of my service which isn’t mentioned, just for your consideration, totally respect your opinion if you disagree.
1. it is true that the selections do shorten in price relatively quickly around 5 to 10 minutes after posting as you stated. About a month ago I had asked the company I work for (Tipsters empire) if we could implement a warning system in real time. I now provide a warning message that is sent by text in real time giving customers anything from 10 to 30 minute warning in advance. So technically you are correct, you do have to be quick but If I send a message at 6:30pm which you get in real time on your mobile device to state a tip or tips will be sent at 19:00pm on the dot, that hopefully gives clients some sufficient time in advance to get ready, as they know exactly when they will receive the tips, again reiterated in real time to their mobile device if they activate it at their end, rather than checking their emails, where prices could of course be missed.
2. I would also like to state that the odds advised can often be bettered if acted upon receipt, as I quote the general price available. Today for example I quoted a winner at 12.00 yet 7 bookmakers were offering 13.00 at the time. The day before I tipped a horse priced up at 3.50 when 3.75 was available to 9 bookies and four bookmakers were offering 4.00, this has been a continued pattern since I started my trial, so I am trying to be fair as possible but yetis is never mentioned amongst any reviewers that I have read so far regarding my service.
3. I have also noted that my stakes are cautious as you mention. I do this to protect clients betting bankrolls, in an age where many tipsters are often chasing losses and have no regard for clients for betting banking rolls as if it doesn’t matter is one I’m also against. My job is to not only to try to increase profits for my clients but to protect their investment betting strategy using my methods. This allows clients to increase their capital over time incrementally whilst protecting their betting bank sensibly I adverse times, any adverse period which can happen also in turn means their hard earned betting funds aren’t depleted in quick fashion. As you are aware many tipsters come and ago, often I find through bad betting financial management of their clients capital for such means.
Clients can of course view my spreadsheet/performance and decide based on what is my overall record shows how to stake accordingly should they choose to ascertain whether they wish to operate a higher stake per point pro rata, all dependent on their own personal circumstances and preference.
4. When I started out many years ago the one important aspect that I relied on was sensible staking, knowing how to bet and to what stakes its just as important to knowing what to bet from my past experience, my cautious approach is not for the many, I admit, but I hope a few clients who wish to use my service can at least see that I look after their very hard earned funds which is treated as if the money they use to place bets is seen as if it was my own, to me that is much more important than staking recklessly with no regard of my clients income which they part invest in me to do my best. I of course appreciate if other tipsters wish to operate differently but this is how I operate because its how I started, building up my betting capital over time and to behave different with clients funds doesn’t sit morally right with me, whether that’s right or wrong is down to everyone’s personal opinion, which I respect.
I hope you could consider these factors in your next review of my service, there will be a downturn period in any service, we are currently experiencing one now (possibly due to my ill health as I’ve only just been released from hospital earlier this morning) so I have taken evasive action to reducing stakes to 0.25pt each way as a protective measure rather than chasing losses, normal service will be resumed in due course staking wise when I think it is justified and sensible to do so.
For me it is about creating a service of financial stability through rational processes rather than requiring a further betting bank fund (I personally operate on an ROC model not via ROI personally, ie; the ability re use funds from one set of betting bank point assignment to each bet and trying to increase profits over time incrementally and prudently in the interest of all my clients. I have no doubt that their are better staking methods then that I Incorporate but by me at least demonstrating I am prudent with their investment shows I have their upmost interest at heart, that is more important than anything else from my perspective,
As you will know if you attended the webinar or watched the replay, I attended the Better Than Bitcoin webinar last week (10th November 2021).
I reviewed and approved Guy Cohen’s Flag Trader back in 2011, I and can see that the current offering has some of the same DNA but has evolved into a service that is easier, quicker and, I hope, more consistent. The only reason that I didn’t continue with Flag Trader is because I had no money to invest back then!
I have had a peek behind the curtain at the (major) improvements being made to the service this year and I intended to attend the 2021 summit of 4th December. However, the process remains much as I remember it: use the scanner to find stocks of interest and if certain rules are satisfied, trade those stocks. Where there has been a big improvement is that these stocks can be saved to a watchlist. Not only that I can see what stocks are on Guy’s watchlist and also the watchlists of gurus like Chloe. The improvements coming along pull together more data alongside the chart so analysis of the stock is a lot quicker, you don’t have to flip to other webpages to get the detail.
Other changes are the patented OVI indicator. 2011 is too far back for me to remember whether this was available back then, but even if it was it was embryonic. The OVI available now certainly looks as though it improves the probability of getting a winning trade or at the very least help to keep you out of some losing trades!
Likewise, the recently introduced Big Money Footprints strategy also improves the probability of a winning trade.
With all the improvements an excellent success rate of between 70% and 80% was mentioned on the webinar.
When you subscribe there is a lot of training material to view and absorb. I strongly recommend that you take your time over this; I know it is tempting to dive straight in but learning the system will reap the rewards. Training not only covers the system but also bank management, risk control, trade control and much, much more.
It is too early to approve this product, although I am already tempted to do so, but I will want to use it for a few weeks first and that will be after the 2021 Summit; but as you can tell I am very enthusiastic about this opportunity. I hope to meet some of you the at the summit venue in a few weeks time.
Cotswold Racing is a horse racing tipster. Selections are SMS’d or emailed around 8am – 9:30am each morning. A 150-point bank is recommended, therefore £1,500 for the CashMaster standard £10 per point. Stakes are increased when the bank has grown by 75 points.
The data you receive are a write-up of how yesterday’s selections fared and today’s selections with accompanying suggested stake plan and an explanation of why the hore has been selected. Here is a recent example:
1.10 Cheltenham Oscar Elite 1pt win 11-4 We have backed this horse as a hurdler and I always maintained he looked a chaser and we would be on him from the start. He makes his debut tomorrow for a bang in form Tizzard team and this horse is the current apple of Joe’s eye. On decent ground I am expecting a big display, but first time, I shall reduce the stake a touch. He is getting weight from both his main rivals and that is a massive help. I am happy to take on anything Heskin is riding, even if they do win, they don’t offer the value that they should, so Oscar Looks a decent price on debut especially as he always goes well fresh. Again, we must recognise, even our favourites have bad periods and I would love to put Nube Negra up tomorrow. He was mustard first time up last year, beating Altior hollow at Kempton and should do so tomorrow, but Harry is having a rough time of it and at under 2-1, he doesn’t represent value with the jockey clearing suffering confidence wise. Should he go 2s or over, I will invest, but that just isn’t on offer as I write.
The trial ended with a small loss to advised prices of -5.82 points to which three monthly subscriptions of £34.99 need to be deducted. Note that reduced net monthly rates are available with longer-term subscriptions. The service fared much better using BSP after 2% commission is deducted with a total of 36.32 points; this is £363 to £10 per point, easily covering all subscription packages, including the annual package.
Weeks 10, 11 and 12 were hard and this was the change-over period from flat racing to National Hunt; always a very tricky time.
I am approving this service based on the BSP return. I do not use BOG as it is a bookmaker perk and indeed has been withdrawn from me with several bookies; however, I not that the returns using BOG would be 36.99 points, a rather pleasing £369.90 which also covers the cost of all subscription packages.
Rendlesham Racing is a horse racing tipster where the full-priced subscription is £34.99 but there are different nett monthly rates for longer subscriptions. Selections are emailed or SMS’d out between 8:15am – 8:45am each morning. A 150 points is the recommended start for your betting bank, so for £10 per point – £1,500 betting bank is required. Once your betting bank increases by 50 points you increase your bet by 50%.
The email or webpage you access from a link in the SMS text contains the selection, a suggested stake (in points) and bet method (win or each-way).
There were also several football accas, none of which won but they usually came very close, i.e. just 1 leg losing.
Finishing the trial at 0.44 points to advised odds the service returns a small loss once subscriptions are deducted. However, a profit of 30.08 points is made using BSP after a 2% deduction; at our standard £10 per point that is £300 covering all subscription costs even the annual cost. I do not rate horse racing using bookmakers BOG as this is a perk; I cannot get BOG on most of my bookmaker accounts anymore. However, if you can get BOG this service returned 27.09 points, or £270.90 at £10 per point. I didn’t hit the profit required to increase the staking. Weeks 9, 10, 11 and 12 were not kind to the service and this is the always awkward switch of codes from flat to National Hunt.
Based on advised odds this service would be neutral but BSP performance covers subscription costs and on that basis I am going to approve this service. I have not considered BOG in determining this but BOG performance is another mark in their favour.
Betting on horses can be hard. Lots of variables, lots of horses, lots of races. Sometimes it’s difficult to even know where to start.
But fear not…
Because if you prefer to back your own judgement, or would do if you could find a service that made things quicker and easier (and more fun), then today is a good day.

Last month I emailed you about one of my top passive investments, Panacea Property, based in Glasgow. They have been paying out superb returns for the last 18 years, based on good, solid business in the Scottish property development market.
What makes them completely different from companies with similar offerings are the fact that your money is diversified across all their developments rather than one particular development in their portfolio. This means that any delays or problems with any one development doesn’t affect you and you get paid on time, every time, without fail. They have never missed a payment in nearly two decades. The same certainly can’t be said for other companies.
They also pay a higher rate of interest than any other property development company I’ve come across so all in all, they’re just a superb addition to my investment portfolio.
Ken, the director, just contacted me to say that he has had a late cancellation on one of his latest offerings and so there is a space available should you be interested. Terms are available from just 3 months so it’s a very flexible investment.
