Making A Million From Sports Betting And Trading – September 2021 Results

September 2021 marked month 54 in the making a million challenge.

It was a month where profits came really easy early as everything seemed to be winning. Really though I might be looking at a record month!

One big mistake half way through the month lost me about £400 and then variance seemed to even itself out.

Let’s dig into the results from September.

Value Betting, Matched Betting And Arbitrage 

The results are pretty much 95% value betting at this point.

There is the odd £5 free bet which I usually just chuck on an underdog and a normally find a few arbitrage bets each month.

However you can probably tell by the graph that value betting is where the majority of the volume is.

Value Bets Sept

During September there were 229 value bets.

A profit of £248 was made.

Value Betting Guide

Advantage Play – Casino Offers

Lacked the motivation to do much casino stuff this month.

Its frustrating as some of the casinos I was getting better reload offers on have put a £200 deposit limit on my account. Which means I can usually do one reload a month where in the past I might get 4 or 5.

I could get these limits increase but the source of wealth checks are so over the top that I can’t be bothered.

This meant the month was mostly low risk offers.

In September I did 72 offers

A profit of £332 was made.

MMA/Boxing Betting Results

September was another solid month for mma and boxing betting.

The biggest value bet of the month was backing Vitor Belfort to beat 58 year old Evander Holyfield. Didn’t feel particularly great about betting against a 58 year old man in a boxing contest.

But the odds were ridiculous.

Overall 14 bets were placed and a total profit of £551 was made.

Tipsters

Let’s take a look at how the tipsters I follow performed in September.

Premier Greyhound Tips -- -£351 from 34 selections (Staking £10 per point.)

Disappointing month for Premier Greyhound tips with a lot of the stronger (4 point) selections losing. Hopefully October improves.

Neil Macdonald -- -£620 from 29 selections (Staking £200 per point)

Bad run at the moment for Neil’s selections. There are some missed bets as his selections do tend to shorten quickly but often rebound. Not much to add, Neil’s long term record is stellar. Feel its just a case of getting through this rough patch.

Horse Racing Tipsters

On to the horse racing tipster portfolio which performed brilliantly this month.

This is the line up of horse racing tipsters I now use.

Quentin Franks Racing – Betting odds 5.0 or above using only exchanges (Click Here For Our Review)

Kieran Ward Value Service (Free Smart Betting Club Tipster)

Beth Bet (Read The Review)

Horse Racing Results

Beth Bet again proved to be very profitable this month, Quentin Franks chipped in with a 36.00. winner and Kieran Wards selections were also profitable.

(On a side note I will have a video up in a few days going over how I use Beth Bet and my results using the software.)

In September a profit of £1409 was made from horse racing tipsters.

Golf Value

I carried on with the golf value betting strategy in September.

Using the exchanges to highlight value bets with online bookmakers and shops.

In September a profit of £353 was made from 26 selections.

 

Trading 

Been a while since I have made a big mistake with my trading or betting.

But September marked a big f*** up.

I had a pre match lay on Burnley against Arsenal which I intended to close before the start of the game. Saturdays can be a pretty busy day and that day was also my niece’s birthday party.

No problem though I thought i would just trade out on my phone and enjoy a few hours away from the computer.

What I didn’t realize was that on Smarkets when you trade out of a position it doesn’t also cancel your other unmatched bets. Which it does on Betfair.

So I returned from the party feeling refreshed and ready to get back to work. Loaded up Smarkets and saw I had a £400 bet matched on Burnley after I had traded out.

Which duly lost and was a kick in the balls but mistakes do happen.

You learn and you move on.

 

Other then that trading had been going really well both pre match and in-play.

Managed to hit a really nice trade on the England vs Andorra game which I went through in the video below.

 

In September a profit of £1042 was made from trading

Making A Million From Sports Betting And Trading – August 2021 Results

On to month 53 in the Making A Million From Betting Challenge.

August was an interesting month, it started pretty terribly as every day I updated my P/L with a loss.

After dropping just over £1k a nicely timed family holiday gave me a welcomed break.

Returned to betting a few days later, hit a decent win on the casino offers. The Premier League returned and a good run of bets in the mma markets got things looking a little better.

Let’s dig into the results from August.

Value Betting, Matched Betting And Arbitrage 

A profitable month in the end for this set of strategies.

It was pretty much 90% value betting with maybe 5 or 6 low value matched betting offers. Also hit a couple of arbitrage bets this month.

We welcomed back the Premier League in August which is always good from a value betting perspective. William Hill in particular seemed pretty generous with value bets all across Europe.

Hopefully they continue to provide this on a weekly basis.

Value Betting Results

During August there were 173 value bets.

A profit of £520 was made.

Seemed to be a uptick in decent offers this month. With Lottoland in particular offering multiple offers which amounted to decent value.

Casino Offer Results

In August I did 88 offers

A profit of £447 was made.

Sports Betting Results

It was a strong month for mixed martial arts and boxing betting.

Didn’t start too great with a big bet on Hall KO at 5.4 losing. However this closed at a best price of 4.5 so was pretty happy to take a stab at it.

Bea Malecki also looked a terrible bet in hindsight as she did her best Stefan Struve impression and got blasted out int he first round.

Hit some nice winners at the end of the month. Jake Paul to win by decision at 12.0 was pretty ridiculous. Whilst these type of fights might not be for boxing purists there are often some good betting angles to look at.

MMA Bets

There were a total of 16 bets made in August

A total profit of £584 was made.

Tipsters

Let’s take a look at how the tipsters I follow performed in August.

Premier Greyhound Tips£120 from 22 selections (Staking £10 per point.)

Another good month from Premier Greyhound Tips. Not much to add really, an easy tipster to follow. I put up all my selections on Betfair and set to match at SP.

Neil Macdonald-£646 from 18 bets (Staking £200 per point)

Not the best month for Neil’s selections.

He’s a popular tipster which means some of selections which are aimed are markets with lower liquidity get hammered. This meant I missed a fair few bets this month.

Booked in a losing month in August but that’s betting you can’t always win.

Still I expect that by the end of the season its likely a nice profit will have been made.

Horse Racing Tipsters

Slightly revamped my horse racing tipsters with Beth Bet coming into the fold.

Been very impressed so far with Beth.Bet and its a good way to utilize limited Bet365 accounts.

This is the line up of horse racing tipsters I now use.

Quentin Franks Racing (Click Here For Our Review)

Kieran Ward Value Service (Free Smart Betting Club Tipster)

Beth Bet (Read The Review)

Due to the amount of selections I bet each day with Beth Bet (20 -30.)

I am just recording my horse results daily rather by each bet. This just saves me a tonne of time each day.

Stakes range from £5 – £10, on selections where two tipsters select the same horse I am doubling my stakes.

Horse Racing Results

 

In August a profit of £403

was made from horse racing tipsters.

Golf Value

In August I started backing selections in the golf markets.

Using an approach similar to value betting.

Looking at the exchange markets to highlight value with soft bookmakers.

In August a loss of -£225 was made.

Trading 

A profit of £875 was made from trading this month.

The majority of which came on from the Manny Pacquiao  vs Urgas fight.

I have added a video of my Betfair P/L below for some credibility.

This video also includes profit made from arbitrage and regular betting. Which is why the Betfair profit is much more then my actual trading profit.

Smart Sports Betting Community

This month I also launched the Smart Sports Betting Community.

After exchanging lots of emails with people of the years. It seemed there was an interest in creating a group which focused on how I approach betting on a monthly basis.

So that was what I did at the end of the August, the “Smart Sports Betting Community” was created.

I can’t share 100% of what I do, as I follow tipsters and some aspects of my trading I can’t share due to the liquidity.

However the group does cover the majority of what I do.

Membership to the group covers.

– Mixed Martial Arts (UFC) Betting Tips – Past Results 14.9% ROI From 492 Bets

– Plus EV Casino Offers – Best Offers Highlighted Daily Via Discord

– Value Betting Opportunities – Best Offers Highlighted Daily Via Discord

– Betfair Trading Advice – Live and In-Play (In Liquid Markets, Will Highlight Best Risk To Reward Trades)

Link To SSBC Results So Far (Results Based On £100 Per Point)

Overall August was a pretty good month.

Thanks for reading, appreciate it if you made it to the end. I will be back next month with an update, best of luck with your betting.

Oddsjam Review 2021 – Includes Free Trial

Oddsjam are a company that provide betting tools. Which allow their customers to make a profit from the sports betting markets.

They include tools for the following.

Regular readers of this blog will know that I use arbitrage betting and positive ev value betting as a big part of my betting strategy.

These are solid strategies that have allowed me to make a consistent income from my betting over a number of years.

With the United States betting markets opening up.

More and more people are looking at sports betting as an alternate way to invest their money.

Let’s dive into this Oddsjam review and take a look at whether it’s worth your money.

Oddsjam Review 2021 – The Best Arbitrage Software USA?

 

Oddsjam Review

When you first log into Oddsjam you will see a number of options.

First off you have an odds area where you can compare odds between a few bookmakers.

  • 5dimes
  • Betmgm
  • Bookmaker
  • Borgota
  • Caesars
  • Draftkings
  • Foxbet
  • William Hill
  • Bwin

Are the bookmakers currently covered in the odds area.

This is an area to be used when you are looking to get the best possible odds for your bets.

Next up lets take a look at the betting tools Oddsjam provide.

This is the area where we will spend the most time on in this review. As the betting tools are really where the value lies with Oddsjam.

Arbitrage Software

When you select the arbitrage tool, a list of upcoming arbitrage bets for the next few days appear.

The arbitrage software covers the bookmaker already listed along with Pinnacle.

What is an arbitrage bet?

An arbitrage bet allows you to cover all outcomes of an event to guarantee yourself a profit.

Let’s take the top selection as an example.

This is an arbitrage between Washington Nationals and Philadelphia Phillies.

In the player total RBI’s market.

The above example is a 2.62% arbitrage bet. Which means that can guarantee a profit of 2.62% n your stake.

Oddsjam provide an arbitrage calculator to work out exactly how much you need to stake. To equal your profit on both bets.

In this example a profit of $8.77 would have been made on the above bet from a total stake of $326.23.

Speed And Efficiency

One of the most important aspects of an arbitrage finder, is speed.

Overall the arbitrage software provided by Oddsjam is quick enough to get on the majority of the arbitrage bets shown.

Oddsjam doesn’t provide links to the bookmaker odds which does mean you have to spend a little time manually getting to the right event.

However using the arbitrage software I did find the odds still existed on both bookmakers. So stale arbs (arbitrage bets where the odds had already moved) did not happen very often.

Plus EV Value Betting Software

What is a value bet?

In simple terms a value bet in the sports betting markets is backing something that is estimated to have a greater chance of happening then the odds indicate.

If you are able to do this consistently then you will make money in the long term.

Oddsjam provide software which helps to identify value bets.

Oddsjam Value Betting

Using the sharp bookmaker Pinnacle.

It has been proven that by using the odds at a sharp bookmaker such as Pinnacle. You can identify value bets with other bookmakers. This is a winning strategy long term.

Oddsjam identifies bets at other soft bookmakers which currently offer value.

The percentage on the left of the selections shows the implied value of the bet.

For example the above bet has an implied value of 6.31%.

Meaning that the expected long term profit of this bet is estimated at to be $6.31, per $100 staked.

Value Betting September

Value betting is a great strategy to use alongside arbitrage betting.

Combining both methods can allow you to make a good income from the sports betting markets.

Middle Bets Software

On to Middle Bets!

With middle betting we cover both sides of an event.

This could be a handicap market, total runs, under/over. There are plenty of markets which present opportunities for middle betting.

The great thing about middle betting is that in certain situations you can win both sides of your bet. Other middle bets you can have one bet that wins whilst the other will be a push. This means we win a full bet on one side and get money back on the other.

Lets take a look at an example.

Oddsjam Middle Bets

In the above example we have a middle bet which is also an arbitrage.

As a straight up arbitrage bet there is the opportunity to make 1.48% on our stake.

However this is also a middle bet.

Draft kings are offering Chicago Cubs +6.5 at odds of -725

5dimes have Chicago White Sox -6 at +840

Middle Bets 2

In this example we stake $100 on Chicago +6.5 at -725, also putting down $12.11 on the White Sox at -6.

This guarantees a small profit of $1.68.

However if the White Sox win this game by exactly 6. The first bet on Chicago +6.5 would win and our bet on White Sox would be a push. Meaning would get our money back.

So a profit of $13.79 would be won on the first bet. Whilst the second bet would return our stake.

As you increase your stake the opportunity to make a larger profit with a middle bet also increases.

Middle Bets Oddsjam

Middle bets are a great low risk way of building a bankroll. If you want to make money from sports betting then middle bets are an excellent strategy to use.

Low Hold

The last tool that Oddsjam offers is one that highlights tight margins between bookmakers.

This is called “Low Hold”, it is aimed at helping you clear sportsbook bonuses with rollovers. Along with highlighting the best selections to guarantee a profit from promotional free bets.

 

BetUS Bonus

 

Here is an example of the type of bonus available to American sports bettors, where a rollover is required.

It is a 125% deposit bonus with a 10x rollover.

For example if I deposited $1000, I would be given an extra $1250.

With the 10x rollover, I would need to bet $12500 before it could be withdrawn.

The low hold tool highlights the best selections for rolling over your money without losing value.

This tool can also be used for free play bets.

In the above example, a $83.33 is guaranteed from a $100 freeplay bonus.

This highlights the value of the Oddsjam software.

Oddsjame Review – Other Tools And Software

That covers the main tools that Oddsjam offers. If you are looking to succeed in sports betting then they really do provide you with the software you need.

Along with the arbitrage, middle betting and plus ev betting tracker.

You also get the following –

  • Arbitrage calculator
  • Freeplay calculator
  • No-Vig fair odds calculator

Alongside the calculators you also get an area to track all your bets.

Oddsjam Bet Tracker

 

Oddsjam Review – Pricing

Oddsjam offer 3 different subscription options.

Oddsjam SubscriptionArbitrage betting, Middle bets and the Low Hold tool are all part of the Canada and US plan.

The main factor for pricing of the first two options is which country you reside in.

This will effect which bookmakers you have access to.

The benefit of the industry plan is that you also get access to the positive ev betting tool which highlights value betting opportunities.

Oddsjam Review – Conclusion

There is a lot of opportunity to make money from sports betting in the US and Canadian betting markets.

Oddsjam really provide you with all the tools to make it easy for you to make the most of these opportunities.

I have no problem in recommending Oddsjam.

Whether its arbitrage betting, middle betting, plus ev value betting or exploiting free bets and bonuses. Oddsjam have you covered.

Making A Million From Sports Betting And Trading – July 2021 Results

Monthly P and L

July 2021 is over, it was a month where we got to see England reach the final of Euro 2020.

Make the best possible start to the game before snatching defeat from the jaws of victory.

Overall it was a pretty painful game to watch as you could see what was coming.

As someone that has got used to the ups and downs of betting. I feel pretty emotionally withdrawn from most sports but England still suck me it.

Maybe next year …………..

Let’s take at the results for July (Month 52).

Value Betting, Matched Betting And Arbitrage 

A negative result this month.

With no major football leagues playing it was mainly golf, tennis and horse racing.

Did a little arbitrage on MMA, although it probably should be classed more as trading as I predicted the odds on a selection were off pretty generous. Waited for the market to correct itself.

Then made the arbitrage bet.

Volume was down this month due to the kids being on holiday, also gave myself more days off then usual before football starts up again in August.

 

During July they were 151 bets.

A loss of -£226 was made.

Neil Macdonald – £87 from 9 bets (Staking £200 per point)

I messed up my staking this month.

Should be £200 per point however I placed £100 for some earlier bets.

Also some bets were only partially matched on the exchanges as odds shortened quickly.

Looking forward to things picking up in August when more football returns.

Hopefully Neil provides another profitable season.

Horse Racing Tipsters

Since May I have been following three horse racing tipsters they are.

Quentin Franks Racing (Click Here For Our Review)

Kieran Ward Value Service (Free Smart Betting Club Tipster)

Betting Man Multiples (Free Smart Betting Club Tipster)

Horse racing is a sport that I know pretty much nothing about.

However it is on nearly everyday and if you can find a profitable angle then you can turnover a decent amount of money.

I bet all of the these selections as single bets.

Staking £10 on Quentin Franks and Kieran Ward’s selections.

£20 is used on the Betting Man Multiples.

Horse Racing Results

A small profit of £51 was made this month.

After 169 bets.

Below is the graph since I started following these tipsters.

Looking good so far but I know this can turn around pretty quickly.

Especially betting at higher odds.

Trading 

Not been too active with trading this month.

Had one £200 position lose on Shanghai Shenhua which was a kick in the balls.

Complete domination and then a 94th minute penalty miss.

Shanghai Shenhua

That was my only football trade for the month.

Other then that, did quite a bit of trading on the UFC markets all pre fight.

Overall managed to scramble a small profit at the end of the month.

A profit of £80 was made this month

Thoughts Going Forward

Took a lot of time off in July with the kids being off.

With betting it can be easy to sit in front of your computer for 10 hours a day.

As there is always something to do, if it’s not value betting. It’s analysing your betting or looking at tipsters. You can grind low value casino offers for a couple of hours a day.

Did think about joining Trade On Sports or Goal Profits for next season however feel like I have a good balance at the moment.

Balance is really important in life. At the moment the time I spend on betting and everything else in life. Fitness, Relationships, Time with kids, work, producing content for this blog etc.

Seems to be about right.

Because of that I won’t be changing the betting portfolio much. Will be adding Beth Bet results next month. Been testing out the software this month and results have been positive.

Can do this in the morning between 09.00-11.00 which is a time I use for my other horse racing bets. So it fits in pretty well.

Historical results are very promising and there is some scope to use it with limited accounts.

Will see how it goes.

Thanks for reading, see you next month!

Premier Greyhound Tips Review 2021 – Discount Trial

Premier Greyhound Tips Review

Premier Greyhound Tips Review

Premier Greyhound Tips is a UK based tipster. That focuses on betting in the greyhound markets.

Established in 2014, this tipster has an exceptional record of profit.

Since 2014 Premier Greyhound Tips has made a profit of £20,581 to £25 stakes.

Premier Greyhound Tips Review

 

Let’s take a look at how I got on in this Premier Greyhound Tips review.

Premier Greyhound Tips Service

First off let’s take a look at how the service functions.

When you join Premier Greyhound tips, you will receive a daily email. This will inform you whether or not there is a selection for that day.

Premier Greyhound Tips Selections

If there is a selection for that day, Michael the man behind the service will explain why he believes the selection is value.

He will note down how much to stake (in terms of points) and the best odds available at that time. Along with the bookmakers that are offering those odds.

The services functions in pretty much the same way that all Betting Gods services do.

Premier Greyhound Tips Results

On to the most important part of the review.

What were the actual results?

I started following Premier Greyhound Tips on the 28th of April.

The results below are from the 28th of April up until the 25th of July.

Premier Greyhound Tips Results

Official results over this time period were excellent.

A profit of £2105 was made from 84 selections.

This profit was made based on staking £25 per point.

Not all selections are to a single point. Up to 5 points have been suggested on some selections.

Over the 3 month period a total of £5,737 was staked. An overall return on investment of 36.7% was made.

My personal results following this service were a little different. Due to bookmaker limitations I could not always get the quoted price.

If I wasn’t able to bet the selection at quoted odds. I used Betfair, placing the bets at recommend odds and setting to bet at the SP if not taken.

Greyhound Results

My results were lower then the official results.

Due to missing a few winning bets and also taking lower then quoted odds. However the the results were still very promising and a good profit was made.

A profit of £1712 was made after 79 bets.

These results were also based on staking £25 per point.

Premier Greyhound Tips Conclusion

Overall I have been very impressed with Premier Greyhound Tips.

It is a service that has been consistently making profits since 2014. The tips are clearly very well researched by an expert in greyhound racing.

My profits following the service were excellent.

How quickly do odds move?

Selections do tend to get backed in.

However I did have a lot of success placing bets up on Betfair. Which were matched the majority of the time as the markets came to life about 10-5 mins before the start of a race.

Any negatives to report?

One minor negative is that there is no set time for when tips are sent. Most services tend to have a time frame for when to expect bets.

Premier Greyhound Tips does not do this.

This means that there will be times when you miss selection.

Overall though I am very happy to recommend Premier Greyhound Tips, it is a service that is very well run and has been very profitable for a number of years.

Bonus Accumulator Review 2021- £20,478 PROFIT Learn How

Bonus Accumulator Review

Bonus Accumulator Review

What Is Bonus Accumulator?

Before we get started on this Bonus Accumulator review.

You might be wondering what actually is Bonus Accumulator?

Bonus Accumulator is a subscription service that enables you to profit from Casino offers.

The service gives you in-depth instruction and software that allows you to make a profit from low risk to high risk casino offers.

It is from the same company behind the very popular matched betting service Profit Accumulator.

Bonus Accumulator Discount Code

How Much Can You Make From Bonus Accumulator

If you are a regular reader of this blog then will know that exploiting casino offers has been a staple of the making a million betting challenge.

Over the past few years I have made good money exploiting casino offers using another service. Along with manually finding offers and calculating them myself as the service I used did not feature them.

Are Casino Offers Worth It?

Below is my profit graph after exploiting over 4000 casino offers.

A profit of over £20,000 was made over 3 years.

So the question is can Bonus Accumulator allow you to do the same?

Lets take a look!

Bonus Accumulator Review

Training 

So first off the mathematics behind exploiting casino offers profitably can seem difficult at first.

It differs to matched betting as you will not always make a profit from every offer. However every offer you do will have a positive expectancy.

This means that in the long run if you keep doing offer after offer you will make money.

Huge Casino Win
Sometimes you will win big!

The example that I always use for simplicity is that of a coin flip.

Lets pretend that you have a friend that believes heads is luckier then tails.

Because they believe this they are willing to pay you £1.10 every time it lands on tails. But you have to only pay them £1 every time it lands on heads.

This situation would give you a clear mathematical advantage.

Long term this is called plus EV or positive expected value.

When Tails lands in this situation the payout odds are 2.1  (real probability is 50% so the odds should be 2.0)

Heads lands and the payout odds are 2.0 (This is the true value of a coin landing on tails.)

If you flipped the coin long enough you would make money.

Casino offers work on exactly the same premise.

Bonus accumulator provides plenty of instruction for those new to exploiting casino offers.

In the form of videos and written guidelines. So which ever way you learn the best, they have it covered.

The videos and guidelines cover.

  • Why Should You Do Casino Offers
  • Types Of Casino Offer
  • How To Play Roulette
  • What Is Wagering?
  • How To Play Blackjack
  • How To Play Slots
  • ID/KYC Verification
  • Risk Free Offers
  • Low Risk Offers
  • Medium Risk Offers
  • High Risk Offers
  • How To Use The Simulator

Bonus Accumulator Offers

This was probably most interesting part for myself.

As I mentioned earlier I have been exploiting casino offers for many years now using another service. Because they had been slacking recently I had also been finding new offers manually.

So how does Bonus Accumulator stack up in this department?

Bonus Accumulator Offers
Names of the casino are hidden to protect copyright

Extremely Well!

I was pleasantly surprised by the amount of offers that the bonus accumulator service covers.

There are hundreds of offers covering risk free, low risk, medium risk and high risk.

Sign up offers are often the most profitable but there is also a large quantity of reload offers to do.

In comparison to the service that I was previously using there are a lot more and the ones that I had manually found are all covered here.

Bonus Accumulator Instructions

When you choose the offer that want to exploit.

Bonus accumulator gives you step by step instruction on the optimal approach, to extract the highest value possible.

Another aspect of the Bonus Accumulator service that I really like is the in-depth breakdown of each offer.

The detail is very impressive and puts them ahead of their competition.

Breaking down the EV for example into an hourly rate is something that I really like.

A lot of people seem to think that matched betting and casino offers aren’t worth the time.

However this really highlights that if you put in the time exploiting casino offers it is still extremely profitable!

What Tools Do You Get With Bonus Accumulator 

Simulator

There are several tools that come with a Bonus Accumulator subscription.

We will start with my favorite which is a simulator for casino games.

Bonus Accumulator Simulator

As you can see from the picture this is a really handy piece of software.

You can run a number of simulations regarding the type of bonus or cashback offer that you are doing.

Such as 

  • Bet And Get
  • Sticky Bonus (Where bonus is removed and only profit from bonus counts.)
  • Free Spins
  • Second Chance Bonus
  • Post Wager
  • Cashback

It then spits out a number of metrics for you.

This is an excellent tool that is especially handy for reload offers that get sent out by casinos to specific customers. It is a very quick way of seeing if the offer is profitable or not.

The above picture is a breakdown of a cashback offer that I was sent on the slot Rick and Morty Megaways.

Below is a video of me doing this offer. I managed to hit the bonus round on my last spin. (The video length is cut due to file size)

Just to prove that the video is legitimately me completing the cashback offer.

Here is a screenshot from my gaming history (the extra £6.40 came on the initial spin before the bonus loaded.)

Bonus Accumulator Review

So although this offer only had an expected value of £3.95. The hourly rate on completing an offer such as this is £236.75.

If you look at exploiting casino offers as an hourly return then it really does hammer home how much value there is to be had.

My profit from this one offer was £566.40.

This does highlight the variance in results and it can swing both ways. You can run way above the expected profit but also below it.

It is important to focus on the long term results as you will have losing periods at times.

However I can tell you that after doing 4000 plus offers the variance does even itself out.

Slots Database

Next up in the list of tools that you get with Bonus Accumulator is the slots database.

This isn’t anything fancy it is pretty much as the name suggests. Its a database of slots that allows you to search based on 

  • Name
  • Return To Player
  • Variance
  • Provider

Bonus Accumulator Slots Database

You might want to use this tool if you get an offer that is slot specific or are just looking for high RTP (return to player) slots to complete an offer with.

Perhaps you want to look up the RTP amount of a slot in order to input it in the simulation tool.

Again its a handy tool to have and saves you manually looking for everything on google (which is something I have done in the past.)

Blackjack Calculator

Last on the list is a blackjack calculator.

Blackjack is a game that I have played for probably hundreds of hours, given its high return to player if played optimally.

Making it one of the best games to rollover a casino bonus with if allowed in the bonus terms.

Previously I have used an online template for optimal blackjack strategy but Bonus Accumulator has its own.

Bonus Accumulator Blackjack

The blackjack calculator is extremely simple.

You input the dealer hand, then state what your own cards are.

The calculator then spits out the optimal move to make allowing you to play the best blackjack strategy possible with highest rtp (return to player.)

Bonus Accumulator Profit Tracker

When it comes to having a quick and efficient way of tracking your profits, Bonus Accumulator has this covered also.

It uses a very simple process.

Where when you have finished completing an offer you input your actual profit the software logs this then also tracks the expected profit from the offer.

Bonus Accumulator Profit Tracker

The software then saves this information and allows you to track all the offers you have done.

Producing a nice graph which shows your real profit alongside your expected profit.

Profit Tracking 2

Having done this for a few years already I have always used Excel.

The profit tracking with Bonus Accumulator is again very simple to use and very efficient. 

They have done a great job of creating functional profit tracking tools that will save you inputting everything into Microsoft Excel. It might seem like a little thing but its a great little time saver that compounds in the long run.

Bonus Accumulator Forum

There is also an active community within Bonus Accumulator.

This is in the form of a forum, where you can reach out for help or advice if you are struggling. Make suggestions for further tools to be added or adjustments which might benefit the community.

If you are wondering whether or not a recurring reload offer is profitable you can ask a more experienced member of the community for confirmation if it is value or not.

Bonus Accumulator Review

It is always good to talk with individuals that share the same interests as yourself.

So the addition of a active forum is a big positive for Bonus Accumulator.

It is a good place to learn and also take motivation from the results of other people that are looking to make money exploiting casino bonuses.

Are Casino Offers Still Worth Doing In 2021?

Below I have attached my results for the year of 2020.

As I have been asked a few times are casino offers still worth doing in 2021?

Bonus Accumulator Results 2020

Over the course of 2020 I took part in 2202 casino offers.

A total profit of £11,946 was made.

I will be continuing to do casino offers in 2021. In my opinion I believe there is still good money to be made from casino offers in 2021.

Bonus Accumulator Price

Bonus Accumulator offers two price points.

£17.99 monthly subscription.

£150 a year subscription ( £12.50 a month.)

Bonus Accumulator Price

Both subscription prices are value in my opinion.

You should easily be able to clear £18 a month in expected profit and make well over £150 a year profit from an annual subscription.

Team Casino Or Bonus Accumulator?

There are not that many products around that solely focus on exploiting casino offers.

The other notable bonus service available on the internet is Team Casino. Having tried both services I found Bonus Accumulator to be much more in depth.

Choosing between the two my recommendation would be to go with Bonus Accumulator.

Bonus Accumulator Review Conclusion

In this Bonus Accumulator review we have covered all aspects of the service and from the tone of the review you can probably tell that I have been impressed.

Like I have mentioned through out this review I have been exploiting casino bonus for a few years already.

So when I heard about Bonus Accumulator I thought initially it would just be more of the same.

However Bonus Accumulator have taken everything that was already available and improved it in every aspect.

They have delivered a really sleek and most importantly very functional service that provides a tonne of value for anyone that is looking to make money from casino offers.

Are there any negatives?

Exploiting casino offers isn’t something that is brand new but that doesn’t mean there isn’t still a lot of money to be made from doing it.

In conclusion it is easy for me to recommend Bonus Accumulator.

For anyone that is new to casino bonus hunting then this is the perfect place to start.

If your an old hand looking for ways to really maximise your profits from casino offers then you should really take a look at this service.

Going forward this will definitely be the service that I will be using to make money from casino bonuses. 

Is there a Bonus Accumulator Trial?

There isn’t a Bonus Accumulator trial. However I did reach to the team behind Bonus Accumulator.

Beth Bet Review – Profit From Horse Racing Using AI?

Beth Bet Review

Beth Bet Review

Beth.bet is an artificial intelligence that finds value bets in the horse racing markets.

In the past I have used several methods to make money from the horse racing markets. Exploiting extra places, straight value betting, along with using horse racing tipsters.

So I know that there is money to be made from the horse racing markets.

(Below is a video review explaining features via desktop.)

Having seen some positive reviews of the Beth.bet service. From respected names in the industry such as Caan Berry  (video above) and Stephen Harris.

The software looks very interesting.

So I decided to take a look at it myself.

What Is Beth Bet ?

As stated Beth Bet is an artificial intelligence that uses mathematical algorithms to find value in the horse racing markets.

The algorithm takes into account factors such as a horses pedigree, history, track conditions and weather conditions. This is all done in real time.

When the algorithm detects that a horse offers value the software will highlight it as a recommended bet.

Beth Bet Review

Which Bookmaker Does Beth Bet Cover?

Beth Bet currently covers 11 bookmakers.

  • 888sport
  • 10bet
  • Bet365
  • Betvictor
  • Betway
  • Coral
  • Ladbrokes
  • Netbet
  • Paddy Power
  • Pokerstars
  • William Hill

This isn’t a huge range of bookmakers especially for many of our readers that are already limited by a number of bookmakers.

However Beth Bet gives you a minimum price that you should bet at.

This gives you a good guide price for finding a value bet.

Beth Bet Selection

 

For example here you can see Beth Bet has shown the horse “International Lion” as value at odds of 29.00 with 888sport.

The true odds by Beth Bet’s estimation is 24.65.

A quick look at an odds comparison site such as Oddschecker would enable you to see if other bookmakers were offering a value price.

Not just relying on those covered by Beth Bet.

Beth Bet Exchanges

Something that I intend to do over a long term review of this service is to look at if this service can be used profitably with the betting exchanges.

You can see in the picture above I have placed a bet on International Lion at odds of 28.00.

Which is still a value price according to the AI of Beth Bet. However due to being limited with 888sport I placed this bet using the exchange Smarkets.

This suggests that there maybe a way to use Beth.bet with the betting exchanges.

How Profitable Has Beth Bet Been In The Past?

When you login in to Beth.bet you have the opportunity to look at historical results.

This is under the stats page.

You can choose to look at different bookmakers individually or group them together. Also you can break things down into different time frames for example months/years/weeks.

Results

Above are the results from this year using only Bet365.

This shows that a profit of £2007.25 has been made to £1 stakes which is very impressive.

Unfortunately it doesn’t show exactly how many bets were made for this profit to be made.

Historical results are shown by the daily profit and loss.

Beth Bet Results

Here are the results for all bookmakers covered under the Beth.bet software.

These results are from 2021.

Looking through a few different time periods and going through each bookmakers individually.

Beth Bet appears to have been very profitable from past results.

 Beth Bet Review – How Does The Software Work?

The interface reminds me very much of Trademate Sports.

It looks great and is very easy to navigate.

Workspace

Beth Bet Review

The workspace is where value bets are highlighted.

It shows the bookmaker, race, horse name, time bet was shown and time bet was placed.

If you click on the race. This will automatically send you to the bookmaker’s page for the highlighted race.

The Coef are the odds available at the time, the odds below that are the minimum odds the AI suggests betting the horse at.

Stats

Beth Bet Stats

Next up is the stats page.

I wrote about this earlier on, noting down that you can look at historical results.

Here you can also view your own results.

As when bets are placed using Beth.bet it keeps track of your profit and loss.

Event Results

 Events

Event results allows you to take a look at the days racing card.

Giving you a brief overview of the races.

It has a section indicating whether or not you had a bet on the race.

After this you have profile and subscription which are both fairly straight forward.

Settings

Beth Bet Review

Lastly you have the settings page.

This allows you to set a level staking size, choose how quickly the software refreshes and also allow you to add filters to the selections shown.

The filters are only available for the Pro subscription.

How Much Money Can I Make From Beth Bet?

This is a question that gets asked with most betting services/tipsters.

Like any betting product, this is going to vary depending on a lot of factors.

Which bookmakers do you have available?

What is your starting bankroll?

How much time do you have to to use Beth.bet?

This is not matched betting or arbitrage betting so you have to understand there will be variance.

This means there will be periods when you are profitable but also periods when you are losing money.

Beth Bet Results

Looking at the graph above we can see that although Beth.bet has been very profitable long term. There is a long breakeven stretch at the beginning of the graph.

Probably the most important factor to consider here is that you are not over staking.

Staking is an area where Beth.bet users could probably use more information.

 Beth Bet Review – Improvements That Could Be Made

Beth Bet is a fairly new service but there are a few obvious improvements that could be made.

More bookmakers being added would probably be the biggest one.

This is something that the team behind Beth.bet have already said they are working on.

 Staking

 

Suggested staking would be something that I think would benefit the software.

At the moment you set a level staking amount, then adjust it yourself when placing bets.

Odds on the horses can range from any 5.0 to 30.00.

An area where you could input your total bankroll and get a suggested amount to stake. Which would be based on the odds of the horse and perceived value.

I think would be great addition.

One issue I have noticed is that when horses are withdrawn. Odds on selections do not change. This means you have to manually alter them at the end of the day when going through results.

Automating this would be a beneficial.

Beth Bet Results


After 3 months of using Beth Bet you can view the results below.

Beth Bet Results

The creators behind Beth Bet suggest a level staking approach and suggest betting selections in the morning 09.00-12.00.

I have used a simple variable staking plan. Staking £10 on selections at odds of 5.00-10.00, then lowering my stake to £5 for selections above 10.00.

Results after 3 months testing the software have been excellent.

Beth Bet Cost

There are 3 different subscription plans that Beth Bet offers.

  • Free
  • Basic
  • Pro

Cost

Free

Allows you to take a look at the historical results.

You don’t get any live selections sent through the workspace.

Basic

The basic version costs £39.99 a month.

With this version you get 30 recommendations day.

Having used the basic version myself for a couple of days I found that this was more then enough for me. If I let the software run for 2 hours between generally 10.00 and 12.00.

I would be able to get my 30 bets done.

Pro

The Pro allows you to tinker with some of the filters.

It allows you to have selections sent at certain odds ranges, set a maximum time till the race starts.

The biggest reason to have a pro membership would be to have the 30 selections cap removed.

If your a high volume bettor, perhaps your betting professionally.

You could leave the software running all day and make 50+ bets in a day.

Beth Bet Discount

If you want to test out Beth Beth for yourself.

I managed to get a really good discount for readers of smartsportstrader.com.

Beth Bet Review – General Thoughts

There is a lot I like about Beth Bet.

It is a high volume approach to betting. Which is an approach I like, as this allows you to grow your bankroll fairly quickly. 

Along with this the software itself is very easy to use.

Ultimately like all betting services/tipsters it is going to be about the results I can achieve using the software.

I will be back next month with an update on my results using the Beth Bet software.

Making A Million From Sports Betting And Trading – June 2021 Results

June was a cracking month.

Great weather, Euro 2020 kicked off and in general life is good.

As always the betting and trading continues.

The total before this month was £114,755.

Let’s take a look at how things went in month 51.

Value Betting, Matched Betting And Arbitrage 

A good month on the value betting front.

Did some betting shop arbitrage also this month. Not sure how long it will last as I am pretty sure no one else is betting into these markets locally but will take the opportunities when they come.

Euro 2020 has seen plenty of decent plus EV boosts. Bet365 even returned with their bet £50 pre match get £50 in-play offers which was great to see.

This should hopefully continue until the end of the tournament.

Matched Betting June

 

During June there were 241 bets.

A total profit of £1310 was made.

Not much to say on this, just got to keep hitting offers and the profit will come eventually.

Here are the bets below.

I did place a few in-play bets that were all done on Betfair.

However for ease I will include them in the trading results section. As I did some hedging in between rounds for a few of them.

Tipsters

Last month I separated all the tipsters I follow individually with graphs.

It took me way longer then normal to do my usual monthly round up.

This month in order to save time I will group them all together.

If you want to know more about the tipsters I suggest you read last month’s results.

Free Tipster Experiment – £50

Only one bet made here as most of the tipsters I follow bet club football and European basketball.

Neil Macdonald  – £452

Solid month for Neil Macdonald’s tips, missed a few bets which luckily meant I missed a few losers. Not much to say about Neil’s service that I haven’t already. It’s a great service and historically very profitable.

Staking £200 a point for these selections.

Premier Greyhound Tipster – £115

Another tipster that is just very solid all round, has years of profit to back him up. Annoyingly there was a winner at the end of the month at odds of 5.0 that I missed.

Placed the bet on Betfair and was adamant I clicked “bet to SP” however for some reason it wasn’t placed.

Staking is £10 a point for these selections.

Horse Racing Tipsters

I put together a horse racing tipster portfolio in May.

It got off to a rocky start but it found some form this month.

The three horse racing tipsters I follow are.

Quentin Franks Racing (Click Here For Our Review)

Kieran Ward Value Service (Free Smart Betting Club Tipster)

Betting Man Multiples (Free Smart Betting Club Tipster)

I bet all of their selections on the betting exchange as singles.

(After looking through historical results. For Quentin Franks selections I am only taking at selection over odds of 5.0.)

Betting man multiples is now named (Magic Multiples) and suggests placing his selection as accumulator bets.

Huge betting winner

As you can see he hit some big winners this month.

The above is unfortunately for me not my bet.

As I wrote, I bet all these selections as singles on the betting exchanges. The reasoning being that I am always able to get better then the suggested odds. Along with the fact that I want to see if I can follow horse racing tipsters profitable using only the exchanges.

Even so I was left kicking myself that I don’t also take the bets as suggested in an accumulator on my remaining soft books.

Horse Betting Results

Still taking these selections as single bets still worked out very profitable along with the two other services.

In terms of taking the suggested odds I never chase odds down.

If for example Quentin Franks suggests a bet at 12.00, the lowest odds I will take are 11.00.

A profit of £455 was made.

From a total of 164 bets.

Trading 

Not done a whole lot of pre match trading this month.

I am not that confident in my ability to trade the internationals that well pre match as my knowledge of each team isn’t the best.

However there have been some decent opportunities in-play.

This was probably my favourite trade of the tournament (which ended up being an outright bet)

Thought the odds on the Czech’s to qualify after Netherlands went down to 10 men was ridiculous. I did plan to trade out of this if the match went to penalties however the Czech’s wrapped it up before full time.

A total profit of £357 was made from Trading.

Thoughts Going Forward

June was a really enjoyable month. Took quite a lot of days offs.

Watched the majority of the football and enjoyed the warm weather.

I did write last month that I was going to look at running a betting/trading service. Focused around MMA betting and trading the best opportunities in the football markets.

Alongside all the other stuff I do Value betting/Casino offers etc.

I still intend to do that as there seems to be enough interest. Will look at getting something together before the start of the new season.

If you made it to the end of this thanks for reading and best of luck with your betting.

See you next month!

Making A Million From Sports Betting And Trading – May 2021 Results

Making A Million

April was a return to reality with a small profit of £770 being made.

The on going total before this month stood at £112,230 after 49 months.

Let’s take a look at how things went in month 50.

Value Betting, Matched Betting And Arbitrage 

Like most months this is pretty much 95% value betting at this point.

A late surge of profit came from a few bigger priced horses winning.

Was expecting a few Bet365 In-play £50 offers with both the all English Champions League and Man Utd reaching the Europa League.

However surprisingly there wasn’t one.

Sad to see one of the last really good matched betting offers disappear.

Value Betting May

In May there were 275 bets.

A total profit of £824 was made.

Matched Betting Guide

Value Betting Guide

 

Advantage Play – Casino Offers

It was a poor month on casino offers.

There are still offers around but they tend to be much smaller EV then last year.

You can still grind £20 an hour in EV from the free spins stuff over multiple accounts.

But to be honest I just don’t want to spend that time in front of the computer anymore.

Would rather spend that time in other areas.

Making A Million Betting

There were 75 offers completed in May

A total loss of -£4 was made

Sports Betting Results

After taking a bit of beating last month.

It felt good to book in a profitable month of mma betting.

Things weren’t looking great in the middle of the month.

On the Chandler vs Oliveira card every single bet I made was a losing one.

The next week saw six winning bets in a row.

Funny how betting works sometimes.

MMA betting results

 

During May I made a total of 16 bets.

A total profit of £503 was made.

 

In-Play Football Betting And Trading

This is a new addition to the portfolio.

It is a method that I have used in the past but decided to put more focus on during May.

Inplay Football Betting

Stakes used ranged from £100 to £300 depending on the odds ranges.

The first month went really well but obviously its a very small sample size.

I watched every game live.

Some selections were left as straight bets, others I traded out of depending what was happening in the game.

Won’t really say to too much about this at the moment.

Will see how results go over the next few months.

A profit of £1112 was made from 25 bets/trades.

(To show that I not just making shit up. Added the video above for some transparency. Doesn’t add up to £1112 exactly as there are a few other football bets and trades.)

Free Tipster Experiment

On to the tipster side of things.

This is an area where I put in a lot more volume this month.

The idea is to take the best free tips available from a number of different sources and see if its profitable long term.

Staking is very simple, I look to win around £50 for each selection.

Only 25 tips in May.

A profit of £161 was made.

The free tipsters I follow are mainly from the smart betting club’s roster of free tipsters.

Neil Macdonald Results

This month I finished writing a review for Neil Macdonald’s service which is worth a read if you are not familiar with his service.

CLICK HERE TO READ THE REVIEW

It was a good start to the month for Neil but a bad run at the end meant I ended up with a loss.

There are a few missed bets on my part.

He had bets on Man City and Chelsea for the Champions League. Which I already had positions on before joining his service.

Then there were a few team totals bets that I didn’t get matched for on Betfair.

In May I made 19 bets.

A total loss of -£59 was made.

Horse Racing Tipsters

Another new addition this month has been a group of horse racing tipsters that I have been following.

The three horse racing tipsters I started following last month are.

Quentin Franks Racing (Click Here For Our Review)

Kieran Ward Value Service (Free Smart Betting Club Tipster)

Betting Man Multiples (Free Smart Betting Club Tipster)

I have been betting all selections using the exchanges.

Quentin Franks selection I have been taking tips on horses odds above 5.0, the betting man multiples tips I have been placing as single selections.

Wasn’t the best start using these horse racing tipsters.

However writing this a few days in June, a profit has now been made.

Stakes range from £10 to £20.

Only taking odds close to or above the advised prices.

(For example if a horse is tipped at 10.0 I would take no lower 9.4)

Interested to see whether this exchange only approach will work.

A loss of -£158 was made from horse racing tipsters

Trading 

Had some decent trades this month.

The Saul Alvarez vs Billy Joe Saunders was a really good one to trade.

Saunders odds were hovering around 6.0 for a while in the days leading up to the fight.

This was a good opportunity scalp 6.0-6.2.

Making A Million

Also ended up trading the champions league final on Betfair which went pretty well.

Going to stick up a video for this on Youtube with the reasoning behind it.

Thoughts Going Forward

It was good to get back on track this month with a decent profit.

Euro 2020 or Euro 2021?

Starts in a week which means there should be plenty of opportunities to make money coming up.

Betting/Trading Service

After exchanging a few emails and twitter message with a few people. It does seem like there would be a few people interested in a service covering the majority of what I do.

The main focus would be on.

  • MMA/Boxing Tips
  • In-Play Football Betting/Trading
  • Value Betting Area
  • Casino Offers Area

Will have a look to see if something like that would be viable to run, probably on Telegram.

Running this blog for a few years and reviewing plenty of other services.

I do think that I could produce something that would offer a lot of value. Make a long term profit and allow members to make at least a decent second income from it.

It would be a paid service around £25-£30 a month.

(Attached below are my mma and football betting results for people that would be interested.)

Betting Results

For members of the mailing list I will send something concrete out in the next few weeks. You can email me at [email protected] if you are not on the mailing list and would be interested.

Been a long update but if you made it this far thanks for reading, I will be back with an update next month.
