Member Experience: How SBC Has Helped My Betting | Phil

To best illustrate how a Smart Betting Club membership can help improve your betting, I have been conducting a series of interviews with real-life SBC subscribers on the difference our service has made to them.

The latest in this series comes from Phil, who has been an SBC member for 5 years and has made enough from his betting to take 4 holidays abroad every year off the back of his winnings!

What’s your name?


When did you join the Smart Betting Club?

I think i’m going into my 5th year now

What sports do you bet on?

Football, horse racing and now golf

Why did you join the Smart Betting Club?

I was using a football tipster who mentioned he had been reviewed by you. I put Smart Betting Club into Google and found the SBC website and decided to join to find out what they were all about.

How has the Smart Betting Club helped you?

The SBC has totally changed the way i feel about tipsters. Back in the mid 80’s  I used some very poor tipsters,  usually getting tips through a premium rate telephone number or sent by post. After years of making a loss I ended up moving abroad , which probably did me a big favour, and I swore i would never place a bet on a horse again.

After moving back to the UK 7 years ago I wanted to try betting again but only on football, and it was through the football tipster I subscribed to, that I came across the SBC. I took out a subscription and was surprised to find out how long a tipster had to proof their tips before the SBC would recommend them. The SBC reviews gave me enough enough confidence to subscribe to a highly rated horse racing service, to which i am still subscribed to today.

I have ended up subscribing to two more very good racing services and I am still making good profits to this day. The subs I pay each year to the SBC is some of the best money i spend.

The SBC has also taught me how to manage betting banks and staking properly.

What do you like most about the Smart Betting Club service?

The SBC is very honest when it comes to reviewing tipsters. Some review sites only review a service for a month which is not long enough.

With the SBC tipsters have to proof their tips for around a year so as to prove they are not just a flash in the pan. The SBC magazines are very informative with regular tipster profit reports. They have a great forum for people to promote their free tips and i always look forward to reading Rowan’s bet diary. Betting can be a lonely game at times so it’s always nice to hear how other people are doing.

How much have you made betting since you joined the Smart Betting Club?

I’m not going to go into figures but i will say that since I joined the SBC, my betting profits have paid for all my foreign holidays, which i take 4 times a year!

What are your betting plans for the future?

I plan to carry on the way I am for as long as possible although it’s getting harder now as i only have a handful of normal bookmaker accounts left. I have got through 6 sets of pseudo bookmaker accounts so that shows how successful i have been with my betting. I try to use the Exchanges as much as possible now to try and preserve the accounts i have left.
