Quality Of Customer Service?
Prompt and informed response to emails.
We first were alerted to this program by Peter Jenkins of U Cant Lose, who secured an initial deal for his members. Unlike many of the emails you receive the ones from Peter are usually worth reading and this was certainly of interest. I would recommend that potential users have a good look at the Oddscatcher website before signing up – it is clearly and professionally presented and gives a good idea of what you may expect.
Once you take the decision to sign up you receive password protected access to the member’s area of the site. This contains a getting started video which is well put together and there are also PDF downloads available to allow future reference. And new video tutorials are being added frequently to allow members to take advantage of developments on the service.
The difficulty here is knowing where to begin! The initial set up process will get your accounts in order and as long as you maintain records of your activity you will always be in a position to know what you can do with the opportunities that will occur.
If you have not already taken advantage of bookmaker offers then the service will guide you through these and indeed may well advise new bookmakers and how to take advantage of their offers. What I particularly like here is the advice given on how to have the best chance of keeping your bookie accounts open. It is very sensible and is among the very best I have seen. Other services often gloss over this point which can lead to problems for users.
So we are up and running and looking to see what we can do with the service. My suggestion is that you work through the videos for the various topics and do not try to go too fast. There is plenty of time and the opportunities will arise daily so the time spent in preparation will pay dividends in the long run. We will have a look at 4 of the options in more depth for this review.
Firstly, the service offers a suggested method for taking advantage of the Bet365 feature races offer. It is explained well and if the instructions are followed any risk is minimised – it is perhaps worth emphasising that minimal risk is the underlying theme for the whole service which is very laudable. The writer was able to use the scheme as set out without difficulty.
The service then offers users the opportunity to take advantage of arbitrage situations for horse racing. You can set your own limits and the software will then highlight any races that fall within your parameters updating in real time. When this occurs you are then shown the bets that should be placed and the interface allows you to select the right bookmaker to use for each element of the bet. The hope is that a winner will come from a horse that has drifted and thus using BOG the overall profit will increase.
Moving on the next major element is Backing to Lay where you hope to be able to lay your horse on the exchange at lower odds than the back bet. Again the software will update opportunities within the bookmakers you have specified (which are the main UK players ) thus allowing you to take decisions on exactly what to do. I would mention that for all services the user places the bets themselves – the Odds Catcher software does not do this so you remain in control of your betting at all times. Some care is needed as the markets can move fast and thus the displayed odds/availability may have moved on by the time you get to your actual account.
Finally the most recent addition to the portfolio is Market Movers where the service will advise members the night before of horses that are likely to reduce in price thus allowing a free bet if things work out as planned. For example, on 21 Jan we were advised that Oriental Relation currently at odds of 3.25 should shorten and sure enough the next day odds of 2.02 to lay were available on Betfair the general trend having been downwards all day.
As you can see the possibilities are widespread and potentially profitable. What you should understand that this is a service which will reward users for the effort they put in. It could be that time is a significant investment for the user especially in the early stages. If you want a pure advice of what to do and when then this is not for you.
You will need to think about the opportunities that arise and how they can be used to your best advantage. I believe that relative newcomers to horse race betting could gain value from the service if they tread carefully and ask if not sure – the customer service is excellent – and those with more experience will be able to make use of what is a sophisticated yet user friendly betting tool.
I am struggling to think of a good reason why you would not want to look at this service and if you can find a discounted offer the cost of doing so is a drop in the ocean of the earnings potential.
The Market Movers service has now been fully defined and is going to operate as a separate subscription with Odds Catcher main members receiving a significant discount. It is possible to subscribe to either element individually or on a combined basis.
The Market Movers service will email any possible selections between 5.30 and 7pm the night before a race and suggests there ought to be a potentially profitable trade at around 9.30 to 10am the next morning. The disclosed results on the site are in accordance with the emails we have seen and are prepared on the basis of trading out to a win situation for the horse advised. It shows a 21.88 points profit since December 2013.
A guarantee is offered for this element of the service in that if there are not 2 trades in the month where you can make a £25 profit based on £25 stakes then a refund of the month’s subscription can be claimed. We repeat our view that the service should be fully investigated by members interested in horse race betting.
