The Bet Engine Review: Automate Your Betting Systems

the-bet-engine-review-image

The Bet Engine is a Betfair bot which allows you to build your own custom horse racing and greyhound systems.

The software was developed by Alistair Moffatt, who is highly respected within the betting community. It's noted for its ease of use, solid reliability and fantastic customer support.

The Bet Engine software comes with a detailed user manual that explains how to make use of the huge amount of features.

One of the cool things about this software is the test mode feature, which lets you try out systems without risking a penny. It’s a great way to test out your settings and modify them before betting any real money.

Aside from creating your own betting systems, some BSP tipster services provide a configuration file for The Bet Engine and you can load the selections into the software, which saves time compared to manually betting on each one.

The software includes many filters that you can choose from to create your systems and it makes it a powerful bit of kit.


Creating a Betting System

The software supports both Back and Lay systems and you can choose to include Win or Place markets, or both. The “Betting Criteria” section has tons of options to choose from to filter the races and runners that you want to include in your system.

Some of the criteria settings available include:

- Countries
- Race Types/Class/Distance/Courses
- How many runners
- Odds (Current Betfair, BSP, Projected BSP, Live Odds from Sporting Life, Forecast odds)
- Horse Age/Weight/Gender

The Bet Engine - Betting Criteria

Here we have created a basic laying system that will lay favourites with odds between 1.6 and 2.0 in races with 4 or more runners. We applied a loss recovery staking plan to the system, so that it will attempt to win the stake back after a losing bet.

The Bet Engine - Main Interface

The software can be left to run throughout the day or you can set a target profit or amount of bets before it stops. You will be able to see the results in the Betting Log once the bets have settled and from here the results can be exported to a CSV file.

They can also be formatted ready to be imported into The Staking Machine software if you own it.

On this particular day there was only one selection that met the criteria and the horse won so our lay bet lost.

The Bet Engine - Strategy Testing

As you can see on the bottom right part of the screen, the next stake has been calculated and our virtual bank has been adjusted.

On the left hand side you can see the profit/loss for both test and live modes and the Statistics box, which will build up as more bets are placed to give you a better idea of the system’s performance.

There is plenty of advice on The Bet Engine forum on using the software and creating betting systems, but if you still get stuck along the way there is also support available via email.

We came across a really useful post in the forum posted by the developer that goes through the thought process behind setting up a betting system:

1. What sport am I betting on? (Horse Racing, Greyhound Racing or both)
2. What markets am I betting on? (Win, Place or both)
3. Do I need to restrict the races in any way? (for example, am I betting at just certain courses, or perhaps only if the race is over 2m long)
4. Am I placing bets based on named selections, or by its "fav" status?
5. What do I need to rank horses based on? (odds, perhaps - but which ones?)
6. If I am betting on "favs", what "favs" am I interested in?
7. Is there an odds range that applies to the selections? (if so, what odds are being used?)
8. Is there a defined range for the number of runners in the race?
9. What sort of bets am I placing?
10. When do I need to place my bets?

Once you have the answers to these questions you can easily set up the criteria within the software and you're ready to go.


Staking Plans

There are a variety of staking plans built in to the software, including straight backing and laying plans and loss recovery style plans. Each of them can be adjusted to suit your required stakes and betting bank.

Backing
