The Betfair Trading Community is not described as a club as such – rather a community for Betfair Traders.
This community does not use a conventional online forum or bulletin board approach – but rather Facebook – as a means of exchanging advice on suggested trades to make on various sports.
Now, I have only just come across this one so I haven’t trialled it. Apart from anything else I do not do much trading at present nor am I yet on Facebook! I will get there one day.
But if you are into sports trading or keen to learn then I suggest giving the Betfair Trading Community a try. It is only £3.60 for your first month then £8.40 per month (including 20% VAT). Click here to find out more and to sign up for your low cost trial.
Today, the club under scrutiny is the Secret Betting Club.
The Secret Betting Club’s strap line is “How To Make Money Betting Online”. So what do you actually get if you join the club?
The Club publishes “secret” reports on the betting world in particular details of “tipsters and systems that can make you money betting”. Updated six times per year it contains the profit and loss details of over 50 different short-listed tipsters with performance statistics over both the medium and long term. These tipsters are largely independent and not the ones you will find on the major platforms such as Betfan. Many of the tipsters offer discounts for Club members.The tipster reports show a lot of useful information:-
- Which tipster has made the largest profit all-time
- Which tipster has had the best past 12 months
- Which tipster generates the highest Return on Investment
- Which tipster makes the largest return on your betting bank (Return on Capital)
- Which tipsters offer the lowest workloads to follow
- Which are easy to get on at the advised odds
The reports also show profit figures after fees have been taken into account. (What is the point of following a tipster which makes you £1,000 a year on your horse racing betting if he charges you £1,000 a year for the privilege?) These reports must be the most comprehensive and clear that I have seen.
In addition to the profit reports there is a magazine (for download) every second month with reviews on new tipster services, betting systems, software and strategies. Also advice on how to get bets on at the best prices and how to reduce chances of being banned by the bookies when you become too unprofitable for them!
There are a whole raft of articles in the magazines or published as separate downloadable guides which will help you in your betting. Members get access to the full back catalogue.
In addition, members get access to the Secret Betting Club Forum which includes members tips as well as some free tips from commercial tipsters. Now, not all of these are necessarily profitable but for the most part there are clear profit and loss figures shown to help you decide which may be worth following.
There are three levels of membership with the most popular (according to the Club) being the Gold level. I have to say this option makes the most sense to me. The price of annual membership (at the time of writing) is just under £96 including 20% VAT .
The Silver Option comes in £12 less at just under £84 per annum but you lose a lot of benefits so I am not going to go into it.
At the other end of the scale the Platinum option will set you back £48 more than the Gold at just under £144. This option brings you access to the United States Sports Tipster reports. If you are not into US sports then save your money. But if you are already interested in US Sports or keen to find out more then there are some very, very detailed tipster reports. Some of the tipsters are offering quite substantial discounts to Platinum members – you could save more than twice the £48 extra cost for Platinum if you signed up to just one of these!
The Club offers a no-quibble 30-day money back guarantee if you are not satisfied for any reason. (I have not attempted to claim under the guarantee but I would be surprised if it was not honoured.)
If you bet (or are considering betting) on the horses or football then there is no question that you should give the Club a try. If you bet on the golf, darts – or even US sports! – then there’s still plenty in the Club for you.
The Secret Betting Club was actually the first betting club I joined – I found it invaluable especially in the early part of my betting career.

Today I would like to introduce you to another betting club which you can join by paid subscription – the Betting School Betting Insiders ClubTM.
So what do you get if you join the Betting Insiders ClubTM?
One of the key benefits is the monthly newsletter (or Members Report to give it it’s correct name). This is 50+ pages of useful information on (mostly) horse racing and football betting. These alone contain a lot of advice which will help your betting. And, by the way, this is currently a real printed document – not a download.
But the benefit that may contribute most to your bottom line is the daily Club Portfolio selection of horses to back. In addition to this there are ongoing trials in the members area of other horse racing micro-systems. The ones which prove to be profitable in the live trials then become part of the Club Portfolio which seems to have worked very well.
There is also a lively members forum in which members can (and do) share their own knowledge and tips.
There is some really good content in the magazines and members forum from regular contributors such as Mark Foley, Nick Hardman, Mark Jenkins, David Massey, Carl Nicholson and Leon Pidgeon
At the time of writing there are three different membership period options. You can join for just under £30 monthly, £70 quarterly, or £240 annually. All options are for continuous membership. (Beware, particularly if you take out an annual subscription as it will auto-renew without warning unless you cancel before the annual renewal date.) My advice would be to try a monthly subscription to see if it’s for you.
But with the following included in a single subscription:-
- Club Portfolio daily tips (most days)
- Line trials of contenders for the Club Portfolio
- Advice, trends and strategies in the monthly hardcopy Members Report
- Tips and advice in the interactive members forum
…. this is a very comprehensive package.

I have joined three paid subscription betting clubs in my betting career, this being one of them.
It differs from other clubs in that it is primarily system based. It is run with passion by professional bettor Louis Delay.
Upon joining up you get immediate access to the forum which has details of all the current (and past) systems with clearly defined rules for each system, suggested staking plans and details of the results and profit figures.
Each day the forum is updated by Louis with details of that day’s selections for many of the current systems. Most systems can be run on a betting bot so it is possible to follow a number of systems with relatively little effort. There is even comprehensive help available in setting up a bot.
Once a month Louis sends out a newsletter packed with the latest results for the live systems plus early advise on the latest systems (or twists on an existing system) that Louis is trialling.
You can find out more about The Total Betting Club and claim a free sample newsletter by clicking on the banner below.
The The Total Betting Club costs just £19.95 per month to join. Once you have paid for your first month you can download as much as you want including current and previous newsletters, system rules, etc. You could learn a heck of a lot in just a month or two then cancel your ongoing subscription…
But I think you will want to continue your subscription in order to get the monthly newsletters, the daily selections and access to the latest ideas on the lively forum.
