Schemes Tested in 2017 That Work

2017 has been a bumper year of testing for me. I normally fit in one, maybe two schemes per year but this year has been a veritable smorgasbord of get rich quick delights – and guess what? I’m still not rich!

That’s because most of them don’t work!

I might not be rich but I have learned even more about what actually works. The schemes below are on my list of schemes that I will put more effort into when I have a big enough bank. They are NOT get rich quick schemes, they are low stakes gambling. Obviously once you get the hang of them you can risk as much as you like, but I went with the absolute minimum.

I am confident that by taking a long-term approach using these systems anyone can make a fair bit of money out of them.

I’ll put a warning in right here, I have tested every scheme below with minimum input, I put the claims of the scheme to the test and found them to be truthful and in many cases I have asked for a refund too and got that back. However, you must do your own due diligence and must accept that there is risk in all of these schemes.

If you want a completely risk-free method of making money then you need to go and do matched betting.

I can tell you for a fact that the results in the schemes below will depend on the effort you put in and you might lose every penny you invest. Note you cannot lose more than you invest (like certain stock market spreads).

If you have a gambling problem I suggest you steer clear of all these schemes. You can get advice if you have a problem at


Now, with all the warnings out of the way (or in your case – duly considered) let’s crack on.


The Power Mining Pool

This is a crypto-coin mining service that pays in Bitcoin.

They mine 8 alternative crypto-coins and then trade them against Bitcoin and pay you in Bitcoin

Mining should be considered a more long-term way of investing in Bitcoin.

They also have a great affiliate programme that you are automatically enrolled in (like I am), just share the link with family and friends and get paid for it in Bitcoin!

Just sign up, buy a package and let the service do the rest! from as little as €50 (or you local equivalent)

Highly Recommended!


Full Disclosure: I am not an affiliate for any of the schemes below and do not receive any money from them.

The Rainbow’s End

This is a horse racing scheme where you effectively make up your own book – that means place a bet on every horse in a race at different bookmaker’s so that no matter which horse wins you get your money back.

Once you have placed your bets you know what your loss is going to be, at £100 per book (i.e. £100 across all horses) that will be about £1.50 to £2.00 (ish).

The genius is that once your “book” is set up there is a chance that some horses’ odds will drift and because of Best Odds Guaranteed offers you win at better odds than you originally staked – thus providing a profit.

I doubled my £100 to £200 in one bet but mostly I won smaller amounts.

Why I don’t do it

The system does all the donkey work for you but you still have to place bets at the time you receive a notification, this can be any time in the day, randomly, and you might have multiple “books” to set up too.

This requires you to have the time almost immediately from receiving the alert to place a load of bets and also have some money in each of the bookmakers you intend to use so you don’t have to mess around depositing money. You have to get the bets on as quickly as you can because the odds can change at any second.  This isn’t easy to do when you have a 9-5 job to do and cannot know when you are free.

The second I get the chance to have maybe a full month of time I will definitely be signing back up with this system.


Clive Keeling’s Delay React Trade system

This is a soccer (mainly) based system where you bet in-play during the matches. Clive has a set of rules he follows that provide some hefty wins.

You can do this scheme either as a gambler or a trader – basically it’s up to you when you get out of a bet and the profit you can make.

After joining you sign up to Clive’s chat group and he personally takes you through everything in real time, almost every day. Basically you are doing what he does at the time he does it. Clive is really friendly and is more than willing to answer  beginner questions.

After a while you start to learn his tricks and research methods etc. so you can make your own choices and impress your mates down the pub when you see a nice 2-2 plump and ripe for the picking.

his is 9-5 friendly because most of the matches are in the evening and on the weekend, which I really liked.

Why I don’t do it

The nature of the beast is that you bet in-play. Take a Saturday for instance, there are games all over Europe all day from 12.30pm so you sit through all the matches, all day, to make the most money.

Of course you can stop whenever you like and restart any time you like in the day, but for maximum profit you need to be thinking about hardcore football match monitoring and stat reviewing. Note you do not get to watch any of the football you are monitoring – you are looking at stats.

The trouble for me is that I do not like football – never have and sitting through endless hours of football just doesn’t do it for me.

If you love football (which most people do) then this could well be for you.

Like any scheme you have to put effort in and don’t be surprised with early losses. Set up a bank and go for it.


Clive Keeling’s What Really Wins Money

This scheme provides a number of ways of betting that you can add to your portfolio.

Practically everything is done for you and mostly it’s a case of copying and pasting  the information Clive provides to place bets.

I particularly like that there were a number of simple schemes you can pick and choose from and create a portfolio, although obviously doing all of them is the best way to make maximum profit.

It’s a very hands off approach. You can place bets in the morning and forget about them.

Why I don’t do it

Mainly because I am an idiot.

This was one of my first “betting” schemes and I didn’t understand the importance of having a bank and variance.

I didn’t allocate enough money to smooth out the losing phases. I now know that all schemes have them and it’s easy to cope with a decent staking plan – but I didn’t know that when I joined, I still had a lot to learn.

Because I went to America this year and it was my daughter’s 18th and my youngest’s 15th and I have to pay for my eldest to go to university I just don’t have the bank to do this – yet.

This scheme was so easy, now I am writing about it I can’t for the life of me fathom why I haven’t made the effort and got back in it.

Like I said, I am an idiot


Matthew Walton’s Golf Insider

This scheme involves betting on golf.

Each Tuesday and Thursday Matthew provides you with a set of tips for the golf tournaments each week and over time you make profit. Simple.

Placing the bets is easy and is hands-off once placed. You don’t need to understand anything about golf, just place the bets.

Matthew is very friendly and will answer any of your questions quickly.

The simple point of this scheme is that Matthew’s “insider” knows about Golf and the bookmakers don’t. So you profit.

It works.

Why I don’t do it

One reason and one reason only – I don’t have enough money to put into a decent bank for this because of the stuff I have paid for this year (mentioned earlier).

The second I have the money to put into a bank specifically for this system I will re-join.



So there you go – my pick of the bunch through 2017. Check them out if you have an appetite for a bit of risk.

I am new to betting schemes and have only taken them up in the last year or so. I am glad I did because I have found the betting community to be very friendly, professional and transparent. The people above give first class advice and guidance for their schemes and leave nothing out – not even the down sides – so you can make an informed decision.

To date not one betting scheme or bookmaker has abused the use of my details unlike almost every other thing I have signed up for or company I have bought from online.

I love low stakes betting and is going to be a large part of my future with most of the schemes above in my portfolio.

No doubt I will find others through 2018 and as soon as I do I will let you know.



Lessons Learned in 2017


2017 has been an awful year for me health wise, but fantastic internet wise 🙂 It fell into 2 main categories – What I have learned and betting/get rich quick systems I have tested.

In this post I’ll cover what I have learned and in the next I’ll explain the schemes.

The most important thing I have learned is that investing in your education and business is vital.

Whether you are a bitcoin miner/investor trying to get people to sign up to your scheme or you have set up a Spotify/Oberlo drop shipping business you simply MUST learn how to list build and market properly. I’ve seen many, many people not applying basic principles and potentially losing out on tons of affiliate sign-ups because of it.

I still recommend the Six Figure Mentor’s for training. Join them, get a 30 day free trial and you’ll never look back.

The second is that the rise of automation is unstoppable.

I can see whole swathes of society losing their jobs, in particular driving jobs and warehousing.

I had a conversation just last week with a taxi driver about how they are running driver-less cabs in Tokyo and America and he had to retrain now or his job would evaporate.

I explained that the company he works for will automate as soon as possible because people are the largest cost of any business and businesses will get rid of them at every opportunity.

To paraphrase him, “it might be good enough for Tokyo but there’s no way we’ll have driver-less cars here anytime soon”.

I explained that we really will, in the next 3-5 years, but he wouldn’t believe me. I got out of the car sad and frustrated. I wish people would just listen to me! They have plenty of time to retrain so long as they start now but to a person they don’t believe me. They think it’s too futuristic {sigh}.

The third is that people don’t understand risk properly.

Bitcoin and other crypto-coins have been a wild ride this year but what I have found most disturbing are the number of people just diving in without carefully considering what they are doing.

I’ve tested Power Mining Pool to prove it works. However I still see people expecting short term profits (i.e. trading) but not applying a trader’s mentality to it.

They really should take a trading course before starting, even a gambling risk course would help because it’s the same thing.

I’ll try to create a simple course about risk next year but for now, if you or anyone you know is considering investing in anything (Bitcoin, other crypto-coins, the stock-market, Betfair trading or binary options) please make sure you take some proper risk training, and advise your contacts to do it too.

That’s all for now.

I hope you have a great boxing day.





Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas everyone!

Christmas is here and if there is one thing I have learned from last year it’s that there should be plenty of football and horse racing offers over the next few days 🙂

Also I have the arduous task of working out which is my gin and gaming day – the one day of the year I sit and drink gin or Southern Comfort and play an old video game from beginning to end.

This year I reckon it will be Twilight Princess for Gamecube, I never did get to play it, but there again I might go for Atik-Atak. Choices choices.

I normally buy a million video games in the Steam sale but I am saving money to invest in my business so I reckon Reaper of Souls for about £8 will be my one and only purchase this year. I already have Diablo 3 and have completed it many times in the past. I really fancy finishing the DLC for it.

I thought long and hard about getting the Destiny 2 DLC but it really is a game to play with friends, and I have no (PC) gamer friends so it get’s a bit boring on my own or with a Pub.

What are you up to over Christmas? Anything good?
