Welcome to our Great Bets review, a multi-sports tipping service that sends out daily selections focusing mainly on horse racing with occasional football & tennis bets

Pros

  • Advised odds held up well

Cons

  • Staking plan unsuitable with high risk of busting bank

Great Bets is a multi-sports betting service run by professional bettor/tipster Martin that sends out daily horse racing, tennis and football tips. We have been following the service over the last couple of months but unfortunately, we have had to cut the review short as the service has hit the worst period of performance since launching back in March '16.

We came close to busting the bank on several occasions but the service managed to recover each time. Finally just two months into our trial we hit an almighty bad run, losing 383 points over the course of three days!

Rating Fail

The main issue was the staking plan, which was advised at 500 points. Using a £500 bank, each point represented £1.00 in money. Bets were advised at 10, 20 or 30 points each, so effectively you could be up to 6% of the bank on one bet. With several bets advised each day, the proportion of the bank we were staking soon mounted up.

For example on the day our bank went busto we had staked a total of 150 points on 5 bets, which ​is 30% of the bank. It only takes a small downturn and we are swiftly heading for trouble... and that is exactly what happened in this case.

Although the service is classed as multi-sports, the majority of the bets are for horse racing with the occasional football tip.

We received 9 football tips versus 227 horse racing tips. The odds ranged from 1.50 to 8.00, averaging at 3.18.

Pricing

In our opinion, the service is way overpriced. Buying into a longer-term option brings the price down but an annual pass still works out at £70.75 per month, which is a lot higher than most tipster services.

  • £25 for 7 days
  • £99 for 30 days
  • £249 for 3 months
  • £459 for 6 months
  • £849 for 12 months

Summary

Prior to our review, the service had yet to have a losing month, so perhaps it was well overdue and unfortunately we walked right into it. Even so, the staking plan needs a rethink as there is a high risk of busting.

We may consider doing a re-trial of this service if the staking plan is altered in the future, but as it stands this will go down as a fail.


Great Bets Update One

28th February 2017

It's been a poor start to our review of multi-sports tips service, Great Bets, with a loss of 140 points at an ROI of -7.1% at the end of the first month. We were often able to find better odds than those advised, which gave us a +62.4 point difference in comparison. 

When we first started the review, the advice emails were being sent out between midnight and 1.00am, which isn't ideal. More recently the emails have started being sent out late morning usually between 11.00am-12.00pm. 

The majority of tips so far have been horse racing bets, with just 4 football bets versus 115 for horse racing.

Great Bets Introduction

23rd January 2017

We have been asked by multi-sports tipster Martin if we can review his betting service – Great Bets - and as we are always looking out for good tipping services, we are happy to get a review underway.

Martin has been betting on sports since leaving university in 2002 and has successfully managed to make an income from online betting during this period. Since launching Great Bets in March 2016, he claims to have made massive profits for his members.

From the results page, we can see that the service has made a profit of £3245.45, which is an average profit of £295 per month. On the website this is displayed in points, which was a bit confusing at first until we read how the staking plan worked.

A point represents £1, but stakes are advised at 10, 20 and 30 points for each selection and at least a £500 bank is recommended. So, this means stakes will be either £10, £20 or £30 for each selection. You can use opt to use a different sized bank but stakes will need to be recalculated.

Although the service is classed as a multi-sports tipping system, 95% of the tips are for UK/IRE Horse Racing. Tips are posted daily to a member’s area and by email.

The service uses three bookmakers – Bet 365, Paddy Power and BoyleSports. We will be recording the general available odds across all of the bookies available on Oddschecker.

The membership fees aren't the cheapest around, but there are long term options that bring the price per month down.

  • £25 for 7 days
  • £99 for 30 days
  • £249 for 3 months
  • £459 for 6 months
  • £849 for 12 months

We’ll be following the tips over a three month period and will report back each month with an update of our results.

Pros

  • Advised odds held up well

Cons

  • Staking plan unsuitable with high risk of busting bank

  1. Good review. This tipster is using some kind of recovery staking & results based on BOG. So, no so advised if you are using exchange and blacktype.

    1. Hi Roberto, Not quite sure what you mean as we lost over 500 points during our review, as shown in the results above.
