BF Bot Manager Review: Update One

BF Bot Manager Review

BF Bot Manager claims to be the ultimate Betfair betting bot for automating your trading and betting on the exchange.

There are three versions available that work with either Betfair Exchange, Matchbook or Betdaq, with the Betfair version being the most popular and offering the most features.

The software can run an unlimited number of systems at the same time, or at least as many as your computer can handle running. There is also the option to interlink them so that they work together.

The idea is to create your own custom bots for the application to run your betting systems using different rules and conditions. Alternatively the team can create the bots for you for an additional cost. They have already created more than 60 bots that use the Betfair API.

There is an import/export feature so that you can easily load third party bots into the software, or share your own.

For support there are plenty of video guides and manuals available to get to know how the software works and there are also several bots already available to test out. As well as this, there is a forum, knowledge base and help articles. If help is still needed, the team are contactable via a form on the website.

We tried out BF Bot Manager with some of the test systems already loaded into the software. We also had a go at setting up a system for ourselves and running it to see how easy (or not) the process was.


Testing BF Bot Manager Strategies

To get a general idea of how the bot works, we picked 5 of the built-in systems to run on the bot:

  • Greyhounds - Lay Trap 1 with recovery
  • Greyhounds - Dutching 2, 3 and 4 fav.
  • Football - Lay The Draw
  • Horses - Trade before in play
  • Horses - Little Acorns

We kept the filters and stakes exactly as they were originally set up as and just left the bot to do it's stuff. It was very simple, just a case of hitting the start button next to each of the strategies that we wanted to run.

The bot was left running for around four weeks and during that time it placed more than 3,000 bets. Imagine having to do that manually!

BF Bot Manager also took care of recording all the results, which could be exported as a CSV file if needed.

The results don't particularly matter as these are just example strategies and they have not been proven to be profitable. However, we will include our stats for those interested.

As you can see, we only made a profit from one system but it worked out as a £173.93 profit overall. This strategy had a loss recovery staking system and there were sometimes huge bets placed, so it's not something that we would recommend using out of practice mode.

It did give us a good idea of how easy it was to run the systems though. Once we had set up the "Auto Load" settings, which loaded the correct markets for the systems each day, we literally didn't need to touch the software again as everything was automated.


Creating a Betting Strategy on BF Bot Manager

In the next part of our review, we are going to look at manually setting up a strategy to use on the bot and we will also look at how to import selections from a tipster.

Rather than try and come up with our own strategy, we are going to have a go at setting up Football Bankbuilder on the bot. This system was awarded a pass in our review, so it would be great to see if we can automate it. 

We have some video tutorials provided by BF Bot Manager to take a look at, so we will report back once we have everything set up.

    • Hi James, Sorry for the delay. I wanted to write up a part about creating your own system to use on the bot but I didn’t get round to it before my trial ended. I will be back with an update within the next week.
