Advanced Cymatic Trader

Advanced Cymatic Trader is a full-featured software trading tool which until earlier this month was free to use.  On 10th November the developer announced that it would no longer be free from the following day!

It really does have a long list of very useful features including a demo mode so that you can try out your strategies without risking real cash.

I tried this software briefly and found it relatively easy to use – after watching the online tutorials – for something so powerful.

Unfortunately, after updating to a later version of the software, the program would not run at all, crashed before even logging in, and could not be closed even with Windows Task Manager.

The fact that I had difficulties does not necessarily mean that you will so if you want a powerful trading tool for Betfair click here for full details and to download the software.

Lay The Draw Bot

Lay The Draw Bot is one of a number of specialised bots from Winning More.

As the name suggests this bot is designed specifically for placing lay bets on football matches ending in a draw.  The bot will then trade out of the bet during play – hopefully for a profit.

You have to tell the bot which matches you want to trade.  Let us suppose that a match you select has lay odds of 3.00.  The bot places a bet at these odds.  The match starts, and after 25 minutes the team which is favourite to win scores a goal.  The odds on a draw are likely to increase.  The bot can place a back bet and, by choosing the correct stake, it can guarantee a profit regardless of the outcome of the match.

The above strategy will not work if no goals are scored but you can configure the bot to place a small “insurance bet” on the Correct Score 0-0 market.

The strategy may also fall down if the non-favourite team scores first.  In this case it may not be possible to secure a guaranteed profit but you can at least configure the bot to trade out once a certain loss level (percentage of stake) is reached or if a certain time is reached.

The bot does come with a strategy guide which offers five different methods for making selections.  Two of the methods require subscription to additional Winning More services but the other three are free to use.

I tried these free methods but I could not make a profit from the Lay The Draw Bot.

If you have a good strategy of your own but just need a bot to do the work for you then this could be worth a try, but if you are relying on using the supplied strategies to make a profit then you may come unstuck.  No refunds are offered if it does not work for you.

The “normal” price for the bot is £69.97 for a 12 month licence (but at the time of writing a £10 early-bird discount is offered).

You can read all about the Lay The Draw Bot, watch some short videos and even download the user guide from the website.



BetTrader Evolution is an advanced software tool for trading on Betfair allowing you to place bets quickly using minimum mouse movement and less clicks in order to make a profitable trade before the price disappears!

Betfair Trading Software

Whilst it is currently only for Betfair it does have versions for Macs as well as Windows PCs.

The features are too numerous to list here but you can download the software for a free 7 day full-featured trial (with no payment details required).

After the trial you then have a number of choices:-

You can continue using the software but in a “Limited” mode.  This mode has slow price refreshing compared with the full version, no “Sports” mode (which would enable you to view a number of different markets at the same time) and no “Training” mode (i.e. demo mode using virtual money and not real cash.  The lack of this feature alone is reason enough not to want the “Limited” mode in my opinion (as you cannot test new strategies without risking hard cash).

Pay £9.99 per month for the full version

Pay £99 per year for the full version

Or – and this option could be especially useful for sometime who likes to have a heavy trading session but only occasionally – buy blocks of 24 hour access at £5.99 for 3 days, £14.99 for 15 days and £24.99 for 30 days.  This option could be ideal for someone who likes to trade only one or two days a week.

Bf Bot Manager

Bf Bot Manager is an advanced bot for trading on the exchanges.  There are separate versions available for Betfair and Betdaq.

The main package includes three fully automated betting bots; plus a ladder control for manual betting and trading.

The most powerful of the three included bots is the Back/Lay Multiple Favourites Bot.  This has a number of powerful features and can operate in not just horse racing and greyhounds but also a number of soccer markets, as well as other markets you can add (e.g. darts, tennis, snooker …)

The second bot in the package is a Horse Races Trader Bot which can place in-running tradses on horse races in the UK win market.

The third bot is a Dutching Bot which offers automatic or manual dutching of markets by pre-defined rules.  There are a number of different ways in which this bot can be used.  The supported markets are varied as per the Multiple Favouirites bot above.

Once you have Bf Bot Manager there are various add-ons that you can buy such as the Multiple Strategies bot which allows you to run multiple strategies at the same time.

Another add-on bot is the Soccer Bot – Draw Betting which can be used to lay the draw just before kick-off then hopefully place a back bet for a profit during play.

The final add-on bot is the Bet Advisor Bot which allows you to place bets on selected Bet Advisor tips.

Another chargeable add-on is the Bf Notes facility which enables you to add notes for any selection that is available for betting at Betfair.  Then the next time your selection is running/playing the market will be highlighted to prompt you to open your selections form.

The main Bf Bot Manager Package is sold as a lifetime licence for a single Betfair account (or Betdaq if you prefer – but if you want both you need to buy two separate licences).  This is sold at £107.94 (including 20% UK VAT).  So if you are confident that this will do all you want then it could work out lower cost in the long run than one of its competitors sold by monthly subscription.

But, if you want to run multiple strategies, then you will need the Multiple Strategies Bot add-on which is sold on a monthly subscription basis at £17.94 per month.

The Soccer Bot – Draw Betting is a £47.94 lifetime licence whilst the Bf Notes add-on is a modest £11.94.

You can get a free 5-day trial to Bf Bot Manager; or you can extend that to seven days by “liking” their Facebook page (through a link on the free trial sign-up page) before you sign up.  There is a lot to find your way around so that extra two days could come in handy.  Also, I would recommend reading the downloadable manuals before starting your trial – just to give yourself a bit of a head start.  A week is not very long to try out a sophisticated package such as this.  But if you already have some good strategies lined up and just need a bot to try them on the maybe you’ll be lucky enough to make the £100 or so profit to fund a license purchase at the end of your trial!
