Ah, Sports betting advice, “Us gamblers need a bit of this” (Not that I gamble as much these days), well, that was my first thought, when applying to an advert for a free trial of “Sports Adviser” magazine.
So, I applied for the four week free trial, off a website called “In-The-Know.com”, and waited with anticipation, for the magazine to arrive, only to be hugely disappointed with it.
So what is Sports Adviser?
Well, it is, or should I re-word that, it CLAIMS to be a bit of a gamblers bible, you know, one of these publications with tons of inside information on various gambling topics. One of these publications that will give you winning tips galore and make you rich.
Well, WRONG, Sports Adviser is nothing short of a scam, that is sold at a ridiculous price, considering the actual content of the magazine, I will explain more.
What you get with Sports Adviser is, a measly 24-page glossy magazine, which is published weekly, the ONLY good thing about the magazine is it’s delivered, to your door, every Thursday, on the dot.
The magazine covers various sports betting topics, from Cricket to Football, Horse Racing to Formula 1Grand-Prix betting, etc. They claim to cover these sports in detail, but alls you really get is, a one-page write-up about the chosen sport and their so-called tips and betting advice.
As I have said, I applied for the four-week trial, and in that time, I can hardly recall ANY of their tips actually coming in, and that includes some very short priced bets actually being turned over.
Take the recent Derby for instance; NINE of their so-called best tipster predicted the outcome of the Derby, with only ONE of them actually picking the very fancied winner, not a very good record, considering these are supposedly Horse racing EXPERTS.
OK, I know gambling is a very volatile world, and people can go through sequences of bad luck, etc, but my main gripe with this magazine is firstly the price, the price is £14.95 per month, for that you receive FOUR of these weekly publications, posted direct to you, “That’s not too bad”, I hear you say, the problem is, the information given out by this magazine is pretty poor, I mean you could find better information or get better tips, by just reading any daily newspapers betting columns or even better the vast amount of information available over the Internet.
Another thing that irritates me about the magazine is, some of the actual text is virtually unreadable, you know, tiny black letters on a green background, which requires a microscope to read. This is mainly in their “Horses to follow” section, and maybe it’s their tactic, if no one can read it, they won’t see how poor their tips actually are.
Summary: If like me you like a little flutter, and you love to get as much inside information and help, well, all’s I say is, don’t bother with “Sports Adviser”, as it is not worth the money one bit and as I have already said, your better off sticking to the Betting newspapers or the huge amount of resources available on the Internet, and for a subscription fee of £14.95 a month, this publication is VERY POOR value for money. Sports Advisor also have their own web-page, and even this costs money to access, works out around 37 pence a day, just in case you are interested, the website is at www.sportsadviser.com.
