PounceBet is a Betfair betting system for football and tennis that can be fully automated with the Auto Pounce feature.
The system is based on backing strong favourites at higher odds in-play when they are at a disadvantage in the game, with the hope that they will come back and go on to win.
The PounceBet app is available on iOS and Android devices. They are a certified Betfair partner so your Betfair account can be linked and bets placed directly through the app.
There are several triggers for bets, including drawing at half time or being a goal down in football matches, or being an early break down or a set down for tennis games.
The strategy can be tweaked to to suit various betting styles, with risk profiles from low to high. You can filter bets and stakes and choose whether you want the service to cash out bets (Expert mode) or you can just use the "Basic" strategy which doesn't cash out any bets at all.
Cashing out offers a lower risk strategy, but the team say that historically returns have proven to be higher by not cashing out.
This definitely turned out to be the case during our review, with a total profit of £861.93 at an ROI of 11.3% from straight betting using the bot.
The PounceBet Index
PounceBet have developed something called the PBI (PounceBet Index), which helps to calculate the chances of a team or player making a comeback.
Each "Pounce" contains a PBI, which is a number out of 100 calculated by their algorithm to show how much confidence there is in the market. The higher the number, the more confidence there is that the bet will win.
PounceBet claim that in 85% of cases, the odds drop after they send out a "Pounce". Since they became active in 2014, the table below shows the win % versus the PBI. As you can see, the higher the PBI or confidence rating, the higher the win rate.
Number of Bets
The higher the PBI, the less bets there will be, but it will also be lower risk as a higher percentage of the bets will be profitable.
We initially set up Auto Pounce using the cash out method and then went on to try the service without any cash outs. It turned out that not cashing out delivered much more favourable results.
In the end we decided that based on using the basic strategy and not cashing out, the service was worthy of a pass rating.
When we first started our PounceBet review, we hadn't been too sure on what settings to use so we decided to take a conservative approach. We set up Auto Pounce to cash out our bets at a certain point, rather than letting the bet run.
We were advised that a bank:stake ratio of 10:1 should be used, so the results below are based on a £1,000 starting bank and £100 staked on each pounce.
Although the conservative approach using Expert mode had turned out to be profitable, using the Basic settings delivered far better results.
Leaving the Auto Pounce bot to place bets without any cash outs would have resulted in a total profit of £861.93 at an ROI of 11.3%.
The lower risk cashing out strategy that we had chosen to use gave us a profit of £185.40 at an ROI of 2.4%, so you can easily see that just letting the bot place straight bets was a much more favourable strategy.

Based on the basic strategy results without any cash outs, we were happy to give a pass rating to the service.
We don't feel that there would be enough profit using the conservative approach, however, it may be that as it is lower risk, a bigger starting bank could be used.
It's down to personal preference and the amount of risk you're comfortable with, but we felt comfortable enough using the basic strategy.
We recommend taking a look at PounceBet if you are looking for something that you can just switch on and do all the betting for you.
