Footy Multiplier is a brand new sports betting tipster service from Luke Brinkley that claims to be able to turn huge profits starting out with a very small stake.
What does the product offer?
When I first received the email shot for Footy Multiplier and started to look at the product, I won’t lie, I was a little confused by what was on offer. There are a number of different reasons for this which I will look at over the course of this article but the sales material put out by Luke Brinkley definitely takes a few goes over in order to understand how everything works.
Logistically, I was a little thrown off by the fact that Footy Multiplier is only a weekend based service. I have seen this before, however given what is being charged I was expecting more. There are actually 3 different “rounds” each weekend to Footy Multiplier, each of which comes with its own set of tips.
Round 1 starts out with a straight forward 3 bets. These may be in a number of different markets (as are many that Footy Multiplier puts out) with the example on the website showing bets for the match result, both teams to score and over/under markets. These are all also at wildly varying odds. Round 2 is designed to increase your initial betting balance for the weekend for your final bet in Round 3. This is the bet that Luke Brinkley says is “for the kill” with a lot of investment towards getting your final big bet.
Numbers wise, there is no formal staking plan laid out for Footy Multiplier, however Luke Brinkley does issue his advice with selections. It is worth noting however (possibly rather worryingly in my opinion) that he then goes on to say that you should play his bets as you see fit. There is unfortunately no strike rate available and with no real proofing or published results, this is a difficult thing to calculate.
As well as your paid Footy Multiplier weekend pass, Luke Brinkley also issues his “Free 3pm Acca”. This follows its own rules and is based around staking 0.5 points on a single accumulator for games kicking off at 3pm on a Saturday.
How does the product work?
Luke Brinkley has very little to say about what the selection process for Footy Multiplier actually entails which is rather disappointing. The nature of the service means that I would have really liked to see something in this regard. I talk often about the need for insight so that potential buyers can make an informed decision but the make or break nature of Footy Multiplier means that it is particularly important that you have this.
This brings me onto the nature of Footy Multiplier as a product and how it is supposed to be profitable. The core idea here is that your initial bet (£30) is all sank into the first round of bets. If these all fail, then your run for the weekend is already over. Presuming that Luke Brinkley does his job properly and Footy Multiplier produces a profit from this, then you reinvest in the next round of betting. This is all finally invested in your big bet at the end of the day. This means that there are various stages in the betting process that Footy Multiplier follows that can instantly wipe out your betting bank.
What is the initial investment?
Luke Brinkley is asking £20 (plus VAT on top of this) for each weekend of betting. This means that you are ultimately paying out an eyewatering £92 per month by the time you have totalled everything up. It is worth pointing out that this is the only option that you have with no discounts if you were so inclined to subscribe to Footy Multiplier for longer. This appears to be a recurring payment as well.
Fortunately, Footy Multiplier is sold through the Clickbank which means that the 60 day money back guarantee that Luke Brinkley talks about is definitely in place.
What is the rate of return?
There is only one cited result for Footy Multiplier and that is that starting with £30, you can make over £1,100. Obviously this is going to be a very rare one off occasion and I am rather dubious about any future of this kind of system as I will look at below.
Where do you even begin with something like Footy Multiplier? Personally, I feel that the old adage that you shouldn’t put all of your eggs in one basket is a good place to start. It is so easy to see how something can go wrong with Footy Multiplier that will ultimately leave you out of pocket week in and week out. This is a shame because with some (very substantial) tweaking, I feel like there may be some merit to the method that Luke Brinkley uses, especially for casual punters.
The problem that I have already described is that there are too many points in the process where it is very easy to lose your entire betting bank. Looking at the odds that Luke Brinkley uses in the example for Footy Multiplier, even if one bet had lost, you’d be ultimately betting with less than you started at come round two. Apply this again and you have even less to bet with by day three. The other alternatives are that all three bets lose, that your round two bets lose, or equally as likely, that the final round bets that Footy Multiplier issues lose out due to the fact that they are rather high risk bets in the first place.
This isn’t however the big issue that I have with Footy Multiplier. If Luke Brinkley were asking a fiver a weekend and suggesting that you bet with a couple of quid here and there, I may even call it a fun way of spicing up your weekend betting. To aske almost £100 per month from subscribers however is just ridiculous for a service of this nature. I can think of at least two different services I would much rather spend that kind of money on that will have more consistent winners.
Realistically, the jackpot bet is going to happen once in a blue moon. Don’t get me wrong, when it does, it will be phenomenal and I don’t doubt that for long term results, it will put you back in the black. The problem with Footy Multiplier however is I don’t see anything that suggests that this is a long term kind of tipster service. It reeks of boosting your beer money and there is nothing wrong with that. When however you are potentially losing £50 per month for this privilege it is a problem.
Had Luke Brinkley given more extensive proofing or demonstrated that the results published on the sales page were more than a one off, then maybe some faith in the service could be justified. As it stands however, I see only a very expensive tipster that doesn’t seem to work half as hard for his money as some much more profitable competitors. Shop around and find one of them instead and you will likely do better in the long term.
