Racing Tipsters That Can Make You Money Have These Skills
Wherever you look, online or the newspaper, you are sure to find many racing tipsters who claim to be able to help you make money fast. However, it is not possible to listen to the advice of all these tipsters; to be successful in horse racing betting, you have to know how to spot the genuine tipster, who will give you genuine advice. Here is some advice on spotting the right tipster.
If you look online or in the newspaper, you will see adverts for racing tipsters all claiming that they make you some money, fast.
You may even receive postcards and fliers through the mail demonstrating the very same claims. Yes, the niche of horse racing tipsters is becoming extremely popular, however I would like to offer some words of advice; proceed with extreme caution.
Although finding information and tips for betting on horses is not an issue, the key and more pressing issue is who you should listen to. Just how do you spot the tipster who is giving genuine, quality advice from the one who is simply looking to take your money and run?
What To Look For In A Skilled, Honest Racing Tipster
Most of my insight within this article is going to lean towards the internet, rather than paper-based publications, as this appears to be the medium of choice these days for the majority of horse racing tipster services, mine included. It’s a cheaper, more efficient way to service clients and therefore these savings can be transferred onto the members who subscribe to the service; well that's my mantra anyway.
But of course we live in the real world and all is not what it seems at times. Unfortunately there are scams and not so honest folk out there, and you really do need to be wary of them. But how do you tell them apart from the honest tipsters out there who have many happy customers? Well, a little research is required, but its easier than you'd think.
The first piece of advice that I can give you is to communicate with this person. This instantly gives you an opportunity to form an opinion of them before you pay any money. You could simply email them with one or two basic yet important questions, and guage their response.
You can monitor their efficiency in getting back to you, their manner, their style of communication. Do they welcome an enquiry or are your questions an inconvenience to them?
Assess Their Credentials Further
You can also do an online search under their name, or the name of their tipster service, and see what comes up. You can bet that if they've upset someone previously that there will possibly be details of this online, such is the ease for publishing almost anything on the internet these days.
Equally though, this means that you have to apply a degree of scepticism, as its also easy to fake complaints and accusations, just as it is to create fake recommendations and testimonials. This is why contacting the racing tipster himself is all important.
You could also ask how he arrives at his selections. Sure, you would not expect the racing tipster to reveal his master plan, or his sources in their entirety, but he ought to be willing to at least give you an idea.
What About Previous Form?
You could also ask to see previous results, to prove or back up any claims. Any tipster worth his salt ought to be able to provide these for you, and those that do not may well have something to hide.
Even if they cannot give you a detailed list of all the winners (and losers) that he's had previously, the tipster should be able to give you an indication of how much profit he has earned during the past twelve months or so.
These pointers should really help form an initial opinion of who you could trust and who you should avoid. At the end of the day, even the most reliable and successful racing tipsters can get it wrong, so it is always worth staying with one for at least a month to establish the quality of the tips that you are receiving.
