5 Star Bot is a web-based betting bot designed to automate bets for Betfair Horse Racing and Greyhound markets. It is an ideal solution if you don’t have access to a VPS, as it runs on its own server 24/7 and you can access it with any device and operating system. The bot will continue to run even when your PC/device is switched off.
There is a comprehensive user guide available once you have access to the bot, but we will go over some of the main features in this overview.
The bot has built in support for a number of tipsters already but we are currently using the bot to automate Racing Accumulator selections. We are quite surprised that we had not heard of the software before the Racing Accumulator review as it is jam packed with features, settings and the developers are doing their upmost to accommodate everyone by taking on requests for custom systems/staking plans or any other ideas.
You can run up to three different strategies simultaneously and there’s also the potential to run more on request. There is also a simulation mode for testing strategies out before risking any real money.
You can choose what time you want bets to be placed and the software can also place bets in-play or at BSP.
There are several ways to find potential selections. You can upload your own pre-selected races & runners from a CSV file, or you use the various filters built into the bot.
- 1 – 6 favourites
- Named runners
- Odds Range
- Racing Post forecast
- Last winning trap
There are also filters for the country, meeting, sport, type (win or place), keywords, distance and runners.
Odds for the selections can be taken from the following sources:
- Betfair live odds
- Betfair Starting Price
- On course prices (Sporting Life)
- Racing Post forecasts
There are currently 42 staking plans built into the software, 22 for backing and 20 for laying, including dutching, progressive, percentage, fixed and recovery based. Custom staking plans are available on request.
You can set the bot to auto-start and reload new markets each day, so once a system has been set up you can just leave the bot to run for however long you want without any input.
There is also the option to suspend betting after a specified number of won or lost races, or there are stop loss triggers for any amount won or lost.
Results are updated live on each system tab and can be exported to excel if needed.
Access to the bot is free for the first 7 days and then costs £29 per month. Unlike some bots, this includes access to all features and the ability to run three systems, rather than having to pay extra for a “Pro” version or extra systems.
There are already tons of features built into this bot, more than enough to get going with for any basic or advanced horse racing/greyhound system.
Having it run on it's own server is a big plus point as it saves paying extra for a VPS if you only want to run one bot.
Overall it's a big thumbs up from us!
