The Banker

Welcome to our review of The Banker.

The Banker is a daily horse racing service from Zerohype that bets in the win markets using betting exchanges or online, best odds guaranteed (BOG) bookmakers.

An email is sent to members daily, detailing any horses recommended to win.

Members receive approximately 15-25 Banker selections during any given month and two sets of results are recorded; one using Betfair Starting Price (BSP) minus 5% commission and one using BOG.

This Zerohype service has been running since 2011 and has produced profit every year both at BSP and BOG with all selections advised since 2011 recommended at £50 level stakes from a starting bank of £1000 ie 5% of the starting bank.

However from 2014, The Banker has introduced a variable staking plan and the selections are now advised from 1% to 5% of your starting bank. This allows the service to provide some 'value' selections throughout the year without risking a whole 5% of the bank.

Zerohype are still confident of doubling the bank at BOG as in the past but with less risk.

The results for The Banker's win service are as follows, based on the usual £10 Geegeez trial stakes from a £200 bank:
2011: 70/121 (57.85% SR) for £203.32 profit (16.8% ROI)
2012: 132/258 (51.16% SR) for £261.81 profit (10.1% ROI)
2013: 89/210 (42.28% SR) for £267.87 profit (12.8% ROI)

So, that's a 49.4% strike rate for The Banker over a 30 month period producing £733 profit from stakes of just £10, representing an ROI of 12.45% from fairly short priced horses. And in each of the three years to date, the initial betting bank has been doubled, ideal for compounding.

There are a number of ways to get involved with this service and as usual, the longer you sign up for, the cheaper per month it becomes. A 2-weeks free trial is available which would then revert to the standard £20 per month subscription fee.

A £50 per quarter or £100 6-monthly membership represents a saving of over 16%, whilst the lowest cost option is the yearly membership priced at £180.00.

We will be monitoring The Banker service for the next 60 days, making a standard bet of £10 per point declared at both advised BOG odds and also at Betfair SP, less any commissions where due.
