The Twitter Tipper

The Twitter Tipper at the time of writing is a free tipping service run by Gary Priestley (brother of Gavin Priestley of Nag-Nag-Nag fame).

Gary has quite a following for his free tips which he posts first on his twitter feed then follows up with reasoning on his website which also shows his past results.  The overall profit figure is very good indeed (640 points profit in less than two years at 1 point each way level stakes – albeit at advised odds.  However some individual months have had losses (39 points twice) so you need to take this into account in setting your stake sizes.

I have certainly had some excitement following some of Gary’s selections.  I recall soon after I started following Gary’s tips during the Ascot meeting in June 2013 Gary tipped four horses.  On that occasion I decided to put them in a Lucky 15 to win.  I staked £2 per line so a total stake of £30.  The horses were at good odds so if just one of them won I could have made a small profit but if they all won the forecast winnings was about £100K.  Well, the first two won!  The third one didn’t come anywhere but I calculated that I could still make about £10K if the final selection won.  It came second by just a neck.  I still made a profit of £450 but oh so close ….

Anyway, take a look at what Gary has to offer here.


The Nag-Nag-Nag website’s strapline is “Horse race analysis using statistics and trends”.

This long-established site is run by Gavin Priestley.

As I write this in February 2015, the site has a section on free tips on the all-weather for this month.  Showing just a modest 3% bank growth in the first ten days there are nine free tips for today so things could change (hopefully for the better!).  There are also some free ante-post tips for Cheltenham.

In Gavin’s Blog section there are some very detailed articles, for example this month one on “Saturday Super Strikers” – the stats behind the top trainers runners on Saturdays with strike rates and profit and loss figures for each trainer – also a breakdown for the top trainer by race class, distance, age (of horse) and weight carried.

So, some very good free information here and another site well worth bookmarking.

Race Advisor

The Race Advisor website is run by Michael Wilding.

Michael is one of the really genuine guys in this industry.  He is also very knowledgeable in all aspects of betting including the mathematics behind the winning techniques.

Yes, he does sell a small range of betting related products but he also has a lot of very useful free content on his website and available by subscription.  Here is just some of it:-

  • Free Tips
    • Daily Stat Pack showing the historical trends for that day’s racing
    • Daily Guest Tip
    • Big Race Previews
  • Tipster Proofing – a very powerful tool to identify the most profitable tipsters
  • Betting Strategies
  • Betting Angles (including a great article on Trading just published)

All of the above is free on the Race Advisor website – a definite one to bookmark!

And you can also sign up to receive regular betting advise from Michael.

Secret Betting Club

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.
