In this Reality Racing review, I’ll be taking a look at this new service from the ‘Gambling Genie’. I’ll be discovering if this service is one to follow or just a waste of your three wishes?
What is Reality Racing?
Reality Racing has been running on the Betfan platform for just over a year, so I thought it was about time I had a look at it. I usually leave it a year or so to give a service time to ‘bed in’ and have a few of the ups and downs that all services experience.
The service is run by The Gambling Genie and has experienced more ups and downs that I was expecting given this is solely based on each way bets. So, I’ll be seeing if the profits you get from this service are a bit too much of a roller coaster for what should be quite a safe service. Or, if you’ll be missing out by not following.
How does Reality Racing Work?
As you know, each way services usually deliver lots of small wins that give steady profits over time and from the tips it’s hard to see what that isn’t happening here. You’ll get between 1 and 6 tips each racing day, all each way bets staking 1pt.
Some of the odds are a bit high but there should be no real hurry to get these on. But, you’d expect those odds to move as you got closer to the race. So far, it’s not exactly rocket science and anyone should be able to get to grips with it, even if they are a beginner.
How long does Reality Racing take to set up?
Get signed up and paying your money isn’t difficult either. It’s a quick and painless process (especially if you’re already a Betfan member) and you’ll get the usual welcome email containing details of your starting bank and staking plan.
You should be able to do all of this with your usual bookmakers, so there’s no need to open any new accounts. For convenience though, you’d do well to get all of this set up on your phone.
How long does it take to use Reality Racing?
That way, regardless of what you’re doing you can just work your way through them. Even if there are half a dozen tips sitting there, this won’t take more than 10 minutes to do. Everything about this service is so simple and basic and yes, you couple do this on Betfair if you wanted.
There’s no time to be saved by going to the exchanges though, but you shouldn’t have too much trouble getting the prices or finding the liquidity. The disadvantage if doing this on the exchanges is that you’ll lose any BOG (best odds guaranteed) benefits you might get from a bookmaker.
How much can you make with Reality Racing?
What I would expect from an each way system is a steady stream of low returns giving you a steady and unspectacular profit each month. There is nothing steady about this. There’s a 104 point profit over 16 months which gives you 6.5pts each month on average, which is quite disappointing in itself.
When you take into account that the journey to 104pts has been a real rollercoaster, with 69pt profits and 52pt losses. This is more what you’d expect from a ‘usual’ tipping service rather than from each way bets.
It looks like the tipster has gone for some very high prices and it hasn’t always gone to plan, giving you the worst of both worlds.
How much does Reality Racing cost?
That 104pts is of course before you take any fees into consideration. It’s £10 for a week, £30 for 28 days, £84.50 for three months or £143 for six months. These would have eaten up half of your profits so I can’t call that value for money.
It would also have eaten a lot of your 100pt bank in it’s losing run. You wouldn’t have bust out, but you’d be far from happy with the amount of money you were putting at risk for some pretty modest returns.
Reality Racing Review Advantages
This is a real shame as this is very simple and easy to follow. The bets straightforward and at 1pt a time you won’t be risking too much of your bank. On paper, this should deliver enough winners to keep you interested and keep the profits modest but steady.
Reality Racing Review Disadvantages
The profits are certainly modest, but this is far from safe or steady. There just aren’t enough winners, small or otherwise to give you any confidence. Yes, it’s fine when an outrageously priced winner comes in but it’s not often enough.
Reality Racing Review Conclusion and Overall Rating
As I’ve said above, this looks to be the worst of both worlds. You’ve got the unpredictability of the higher risk bets coupled with lower profits you’d expect from each way systems. On paper, I’m sure it looked great, pick the high odds but with the insurance of EW if it didn’t quite cross the line first.
Ironically, in ‘reality’ that hasn’t worked out and you should give this one a miss. The Gambling Genie has not conjured up anything worth your time or money here.
