I have personally used this software, and I am constantly amazed by it. I am amazed
that people (cleverer than I) could dream up and create such powerful stuff, and
I am even more amazed that Betfair lets them!
You will need an extremely analytical mind-set to get the best out of this (luckily,
most successful gamblers/traders do) and you will have to put in a lot of time to
learn it (see below - Training Course). But if you see yourself as a trader rather
than an out-and-out gambler, then this Horse Race Betting Software (‘Bot) could be
a dream come true.
Basically, the software creates a direct connection into the heart of Betfair (directly
into its API) and can then be programmed to “fire in” bets either under user control
or fully automatically when a previously defined set of conditions is met.
It can be programmed from Excel or “on the fly”. You can even set it up and then
go out shopping, and come back to count your winnings (as long as your “system” works).
The guys that created and market this software are serious professionals, and they
appreciate that something as powerful as this requires some serious work to get the
best out of it. To this end, the software includes a whole host of mini-training
videos, as well as extensive online support. Here are a couple of examples:
The first betting software training video will be ideal for those who are unfamiliar
with Betfair as well as Bet Angel, it also gives a simple explanation of “trading”
as opposed to “betting”
They also offer well-run training courses , (and if you are a “footie” fan, there’s
a bonus, the courses are held at Manchester United’s Old Trafford ground).
Each course is professionally arranged and presented, and delegates are encouraged
to interact with the presenter to achieve their aims. Each delegate not only receives
expert tuition on this betting software and loads of advice but also a 111-page course-book
giving an excellent background into how to use betting exchanges.
Other details: the software is multi-currency and (so long as Betfair covers it)
and multi market. So betting on Australian, South African, American or Middle Eastern
horse racing is going to be fairly easy, and of course the software could be used
to trade other markets such as football, motor racing, tennis - whatever Betfair
Bet Angel isn’t cheap, but then, it does give you an almost obscene “edge” over other
traders. If you are wary, you can even try it for yourself for a very modest amount
This is for the serious professional or dedicated amateur aiming to become a serious
professional. Using Bet Angel certainly isn’t “money for old rope”, it requires
work and dedication, but its potential - in the right hands - is obvious to me at
