I’m going to be casting my eye over the MONEY MACHINE tipping service for the next month or so.

This is a monthly subscription (£29) service that provides tips on a daily basis via email. The results given on their website are fairly impressive and from my experience of the, so far, excellent customer back up service I am inclined to accept them as honest.

The advised starting bank is 100pts and each bet is given with a points value to stake. They advise against compounding and prefer to stick to the same value per point, so that is how I will be running the trial. So far, the bets advised have been 1 or 2 point bets on football markets such as U/O 2.5 goals, Both To Score etc.

I will be blogging a daily profit/loss figure during the trial and providing a link to Google Docs for a spreadsheet giving full details of each bet at the end of each week. I will be using the same sheet that I have used on other tipster trials as I have written in calculations to show the Strike Rate, Average Odds and R.O.I. of the service during our trial period.

We haven’t got off to the best of starts but hardly disastrous either:

STARTING BANK 100 points

26/7 -0.38 points

27/7  – 2.2 points

RUNNING BANK 97.42 points
