Low Risk Profits is a new horse racing tipster service that is supposedly operated by Darren Carter. It claims to be able to produce a substantial income from very small initial stakes.
What does the product offer?
The sales material for Low Risk Profits makes the service sound like something different and unique. There are plenty of claims made about low risk and even lower stakes, all of which (at least I suspect) are there to encourage those who harbour doubts. This is something that I feel is evidenced by the way that Darren Carter is so quick to talk down other tipsters.
So what exactly is on offer? Despite seemingly lambasting the process, Low Risk Profits is a tipster service that in many ways is very typical. It offers users daily selections for horse races across the UK, all of which are sent out via email. The bets themselves however are not so typical (something that I will get to later) but logistically, Low Risk Profits does nothing new.
The key to Low Risk Profits as a service is the types of bets that you place. Darren Carter appears to use accumulator bets as the primary method of making money. He actually provides a single example on the sales page for the product which is made up of several reasonably long shots. These were supposedly bundled into a four fold accumulator which with a £2 stake produced odds of 147/1.
In spite of Darren Carter’s best efforts to suggest that this kind of win is going to be a relatively common event, it categorically will not be. I have looked at a number of services before now which have had their front foot in accumulator territory and when it comes to horse racing, I am yet to see any long term winner (and this is from better and more experienced tipsters than the one that is supposedly behind Low Risk Profits).
Naturally as the odds are so high, the staking plan for Low Risk Profits can be massively diminished and it is strongly suggested that you shouldn’t be betting more than £1-3 per day. I presume that this is a level staking plan but truthfully, Low Risk Profits doesn’t go into any real detail about this however. This isn’t something that is a surprise to me as frankly, the whole service seems to be on the questionable side.
Sticking with the numbers side of things, there are no claims made in terms of a strike rate. There is also no proofing provide for Low Risk Profits either. Taking the fact that Darren Carter uses accumulator bets for the service however, it seems a safe bet that this number would be exceptionally low.
How does the product work?
In terms of what the selection process for Low Risk Profits entails, there is no information provided. This is rather disappointing but frankly, it is also expected. This is mostly down to the fact that I rather suspect that there is a possibility Low Risk Profits is not entirely a genuine product. There are a number of reasons for this that I will explain as I go on.
Really, the only thing that we are told about how the system works is Darren Carter saying that by betting less you will make more money. This kind of logic may seem sound on paper but there is very little to really back this up.
What is the initial investment?
There are a number of different options available for those who wish to purchase Low Risk Profits however the only real difference is the duration of subscription. The first option is to sign up for 3 months of selections at a cost of £45 (a one time cost). The second is to sign up for 6 months which is a one time cost of £60 and finally, you can sign up to receive selections for Low Risk Profits for a full year for a one time cost of £90. All of these options come with a full 60 day money back guarantee as Low Risk Profits is sold through Click bank.
What is the rate of return?
The headline for Low Risk Profits talks about how Darren Carter supposedly made a profit of £4,639.17 in just 6 months. I am highly sceptical of this figure however for a number of reasons, not which of least is that there is no real evidence. There are two highly questionable screenshots of Betfair accounts but honestly, I find them to be highly dubious and place no faith in them being genuine.
There is very little about Low Risk Profits that I see as recommending. If I am completely honest, I would go as far as to say that it is probably the most dubious looking horse racing tipster service I have seen for a long time. There are so many reasons for this so in order to keep this write up at a reasonable length, I will try to focus on the main ones.
The most apparent is that despite his claims that he is able to make a lot of money through horse racing, Darren Carter never adequately explains how he is able to do this. In fact, in the sales material for Low Risk Profits, he says that until last year he was “probably betting like you are now”, meaning utilising tipster or systems and staking £10 plus on bets.
What this suggests to me is that if there is in fact a genuine selection process in place, then it is unlikely to have really been tested substantially. This is something that is particularly worrying when it is combined with the fact implication that Low Risk Profits works by backing accumulators. The truth is that a very good tipster can reasonably be expected to get a strike rate of around 30%. To get even trebles consistently is a big ask and with no evidence, I can only presume that Darren Carter can’t really deliver on this front.
There is more to it than simply the probability however (although that should be enough on its own). As somebody who has spent considerable time with tipster services and betting systems, I can recognise a potential scam a mile off. Consider that whoever is behind Low Risk Profits has chosen 3 months as the minimum period that you can sign up for Low Risk Profits. Also keep in mind the low risk of winning with the bet types.
It is not unfeasible that a marketer could keep people from claiming a refund from Clickbank for more than 60 days simply by promising that winners will come or that you have to be patient (keeping in mind the main bet type behind Low Risk Profits). Once the 60 days have elapsed, you cannot claim any sort of refund. Naturally, the fact that this is a possibility doesn’t make it so.
Honestly, the final thing that makes me think that x is not necessarily entirely genuine comes from the seller. Despite supposedly being operated by Darren Carter, a look on Clickbank reveals that it is actually being sold by a vendor, ODDSDAILY. This vendor has a history of putting out questionable tipster services that have ultimately failed to make money.
With all of this in mind, I definitely wouldn’t consider recommending Low Risk Profits but truth be told, there is a little more to it than this. Whilst the background information etc. definitely shows a product that has more than its fair share of shadiness, the truth is that a tipster service based around horse racing accumulators simply isn’t viable to me. Combine this with a large sum of money which you have to pay upfront and I think that these reasons alone justify giving Low Risk Profits a miss.
