In this RaceMaster review, I’ll be looking at this new tipping system. I’ll be finding out if this service really does deliver ‘the best naps of the day’ and just how much can you make from them?
What is RaceMaster?
RaceMaster has been running on the Betfan website since August 2019. I wouldn’t usually look at a tipping service until it was a year old, and it’s had all of the ups and downs that every tipping service goes through.
This service though caught my eye as it looked so basic and simple and was making a profit. In fact, it looked so straightforward that I couldn’t see any surprises lurking around the corner. So, I decided to take a closer look to see if it lived up to my expectations
How does RaceMaster Work?
As I expected, it works very simply. You’ll get 1 or sometimes 2 selections which ‘The Racemaster’ considers to be the best of the day. These will be at various odds, but you won’t be seeing too many over 8. So despite the quite gimmicky name, there’s no gimmick here, the tipster only picks whatever they think will win.
These arrive in your inbox the evening before the race wherever possible. So, you’ll want to get these on soon after so the odds don’t move too far. As there are no ridiculous odds in the selections, you’re not under as much pressure as you would be with other services. That said, I wouldn’t leave too many until the following morning.
The simple staking of 5pts per bet means you can still make some reasonable returns without putting too much of your bank at risk each day.
How long does RaceMaster take to set up?
Before you can do any of that, you’ll to get signed up and part with some cash. It’s a quick and easy job (even quicker if you’re already a Betfan member) Before the first tips arrive though, there’s only one more job to do.
You should be able to place these bets with whichever bookies you currently have accounts with. So, you should spend a minute or two to check they are live and active before you get started. This looks to be a quick and easy process and you don’t want to spoil that because you’re waiting for a password reset email.
How long does it take to use RaceMaster?
I doubt the is a service that’s much quicker to use than this one. The bets are simple win singles with a very rare each way thrown in occasionally to keep it interesting. If you’ve got everything set up on your phone (emails, bookies apps, etc) then you’ll be surprised if this takes you more than 2 minutes.
This is handy as the tips will usually arrive in the evening when you’ve often got something better to do. At a push, you could do this on Betfair but you wouldn’t save any time. You’d probably have a few issues with liquidity and price as well as losing any BOG benefits.
How much can you make with RaceMaster?
Like everything else about this service, the profits are good but not spectacular. 218pts in 5 and a half months is a very reasonable return, in fact, at £10/pt it’s an average of nearly £400 each month. There’s been bigger winning months (104pts) and losing months (38pts). But, with a service this straightforward I can’t see how any month can go too far beyond those two extremes.
These figures don’t include any monthly fees and with the newer services on Betfan tending to be more expensive, I wasn’t too sure what these would be like.
How much does RaceMaster cost?
Luckily, these are simple and reasonable too. It’s £10 for a week, £34 for 28 days, £84.50 for three months or £143 for six months. These won’t make too much of a dent in your profits and are a bit of a bargain.
As a general rule, I see anything that’s between 10-25% of the average monthly profit to be reasonable. Anything over that I would think of as expensive and anything lower than 10% is excellent value for money
You’ll be well covered by a 100pt bank too. The winnings might not be headline grabbers but the losses won’t have you kicking too many domestic pets either.
RaceMaster Review Advantages
There are a lot of good points with this service. There’s nothing new to learn, no Trixies, Yankees or anything out of the ordinary, just win singles and the very occasional each way. There’s just one bet each day that you can easily get on in the time it takes to sneeze.
The win rates and profits are large enough to keep you interested and there’s just not enough to wrong to have any big disasters.
RaceMaster Review Disadvantages
This is the only thing a few ‘old hands’ might find frustrating. This is a very traditional service that won’t have enough going on for some people. Not enough bets, not enough big winners, you could almost forget you were actually doing this.
RaceMaster Review Conclusion and Overall Rating
You could easily give this to a beginner and they’s be happy. You could also give it to an experienced bettor and they will like the simplicity of it all as much as they liked the profits. Unless you are absolutely addicted to the thrill of big wins, you should add this to your portfolio of tipsters as soon as you can.
