Well, the bot fell over yesterday taking nearly half the bank with it and leaving the publishers scratching their heads wondering what happened. To their credit, they’ve suspended subscriptions, put their hands up and admitted something has gone horribly wrong. They’ve been up all night putting together a recovery plan and implemented it today for users to recover the loss safely over the next 6 to 8 weeks. They are not charging any subs during this time and are going to be spending the next few weeks looking at what went wrong in order that it doesn’t happen again.
Since the recovery plan is something different to The Master Plan, this blog test will have to go on hold until the fix has been made.
Personally I’m not going to bother with the recovery plan as I am only interested in testing the actual Master Plan system, so I’ll write off the £237.86 and move on.
Since the bank wasn’t wiped out and since there is a recovery procedure in place it’s seems unfair to label this as a Failed method (yet!), so I’ll stick this in the Neutral Section for now and re-start the blog test once the bug has been fixed and losses recovered for this crash. I’m not normally this generous on a blog test but the response from the vendors to this situation has been, in my opinion, totally honourable and therefore I’m prepared to give them a second chance.
UPDATE 25th August
Time for an update on The Master Plan.
The long and short of it is that, it’s all good news! Since the system had it’s hiccup it’s been solid profits daily, gradually recovering the loss. The team behind this service have really shown their true mettle and seem to have bent over backwards to make up for the losing day.
We had an explanation from John Duncan describing exactly why the bot fell over in the first place, which was to do with the fact that they had made the bot calculations based on market SP prices and not the better Betfair SP prices. So although the bot performed entirely as it was supposed to, for the first time in 29 months the higher Betfair SP prices allowed one too many bets to get through the filter that should not have done so, and this wasn’t something they could have foreseen.
So they fixed this error, gave everyone a free subscription until they had recovered what they had lost, and set about implementing a recovery strategy that included running a couple of different systems on the bot at the same time. And it worked.
I have been very impressed with how they responded to this hiccup and I’ve had a few e-mails from other subscribers along the same lines.
In view of this I have decided to re-catagorise this service as Approved. I’ve been using the bot every day myself and it’s a neat piece of kit with quite an amazing profit potential due to compounding the bank daily.
I will do another update on this service in a couple of months.

UPDATE 5th October
Well the Master Plan has made a staggering recovery. Again, just aiming for a tiny percent profit each day and compounding the returns the profit now stands at £182.92. I think this is going to be a very interesting year!
UPDATE 10th March
Another wipe out day today for anyone that wasn’t around to stop the bot. I think it’s time to move this method to the Neutral Section. It’s a fine method if you are available to stop the bot when instructed to do so by the admin, but if you are looking for something to set and forget, then you can forget this one!
