6pt Plan is a new to market horse racing tipster service which is being offered through the BetInfo 24 platform. It has produced some genuinely quite impressive results since proofing started in February.
Introduction to 6pt Plan
There are a lot of reasons for a tipster service to stand out to me as interesting, but sometimes, they can also be interesting for some of the more mundane or apparently less obvious reasons. All of this leads me to todays subject, which is a very interesting thing to me for a genuinely quite boring reason.
6pt Plan stands out because it bets on horse racing from across the world. I know, I know, it really doesn’t sound that interesting. But given the proclivity towards UK and Irish betting (which does make up the majority of bets advised, I will admit), I do feel that there is strong potential for value looking at some of those less common markets.
Combine this with some results that are not necessarily prolific, but seem to show a decent ability to pick winners and you start to have something unique. What is really incredible about all this though, is what BetInfo 24 are asking in order to receive selections from 6pt Plan. There is a strong potential for value for money to be had here, so let’s jump straight into it.
What Does 6pt Plan Offer?
There are a lot of things that I quite like about 6pt Plan, but one of the main things for me is the structuring of the service. Honestly, it is pretty rigid. And whilst I admit that this can bring its own raft of problems (and it really can with losing streaks often adding up rather quickly), it also allows you to plan ahead and that can make you a more disciplined bettor.
So, what do you get with 6pt Plan? You get 3 bets per day, every day. These are ranked from a best bet to a least best, and that is about it. Of course, I am being facetious here. There are a number of subtleties that BetInfo 24 don’t really discuss, but there is something refreshing about the fact that you can quickly and easily summarise what you are getting.
To me, it suggests (very strongly) that there is a clear strategy in place behind 6pt Plan (although there may be some problems with this that I will come to later). If there is, then that is no bad thing.
Just tying up the logistical side of things, as mentioned, this is a near daily tipster service with just the very odd no bet day. BetInfo 24 says that selections are emailed directly to subscribers each day, as well as being made available through a member’s area. It is worth noting that 6pt Plan selections are issued quite late in the day, usually between11am and 12.30pm.
The quality of these is pretty good providing you with plenty of information to get the bets placed including which bookmakers are offering the advised odds at the time of issue. There is also a debrief on how the previous day went which is a nice touch in my opinion.
In terms of the bets, 6pt Plan exclusively advises you of straight win bets. This means that there is little reason that you should struggle, even if you are new to betting. As I have also mentioned, there is a fixed volume of 3 bets per day. With the occasional no bet day, this makes for 21 bets per week.
Now, one of the reasons that those losing streaks I mentioned can become problematic is the staking plan that is in place. I have mentioned that bets are rated from a best to least best and this is reflected on how much you stake on each selection. The best bet gets 3 points, and the least best gets just 1 point staked. This means 6 points per day, hence the name, 6pt Plan.
One of the things that I admit is a little concerning to me is the fact that we are told by BetInfo 24 is that you need a betting bank of just 50 points. I will admit that this definitely makes 6pt Plan quite affordable and allows you to invest more per point, but that also comes with its own set of problems.
For example, the longest losing streak that I have seen in BetInfo 24’s proofing was 23 bets. During this period, you would have seen a loss of 45 points. That is almost your full betting bank for 6pt Plan on just a particularly bad week.
This is arguably somewhat punctuated by a strike rate which BetInfo 24 refer to as having “an impressive level of consistency”. This is stated directly under a claim of a “High Strike Rate”.
This all sounds well and good, however my calculation produces a strike rate of some 20%. That isn’t a particularly big number. Especially when you factor in that by BetInfo 24’s own admission, the odds that are recommended through 6pt Plan are between 2/1 and 8/1. Those aren’t particularly huge numbers.
How Does 6pt Plan Work?
One of the undisputedly frustrating things about 6pt Plan is that there is no information provide about what the selection process entails. This is rather concerning to me for a number of reasons, one of which really brings me back to something I highlighted as a positive earlier which is the way that you are betting on races across the world.
I would really like to know that there is a strategy behind this as opposed to the tipster behind 6pt Plan simply making guesses. With information of this, I would definitely feel a lot more comfortable and excited about this fact, as it stands though, it is simply another concern as it may be a tipster spreading themselves far too thinly (something I have seen fail before).
Honestly, looking at the proofing that BetInfo 24 provide, there isn’t even any obvious approach here that I can discern. There is arguably an element of trying to identify value in bets, however this is entirely conjecture on my behalf. The fact of the matter is that there is nothing concrete that is said about 6pt Plan.
About the only consolation that I can think of is the fact that there is the comprehensive proofing BetInfo 24 provided. This means that whilst you cannot make an informed purchase in terms of how the service actually works, you can at least look at a considerable amount of data and extrapolate a reasonable expectation for the future.
What is the Initial Investment?
I mentioned that the price is a stand out element of 6pt Plan and that is definitely the case. There are three different options available at three different price points, however each of them does actually offer the potential of value for money.
The first of these is a trial subscription which is priced at just £3 (plus VAT) in order to receive selections for 14 days. Once this has elapsed, 6pt Plan switches over to the monthly subscription. This is priced at a very reasonable £24.99 (plus VAT) per month.
The final option is a quarterly subscription which represents the best value at a cost of £57.99 (plus VAT). It is worth noting that BetInfo 24 say that if you take this option and aren’t in a profit after 3 months, you will receive your next 3 months of 6pt Plan for free.
As a final note, it is particularly noteworthy to highlight that BetInfo 24 are selling 6pt Plan through the Clickbank platform. This means that there is a full 30 day money back guarantee in place should you find that the service isn’t for you.
What is the Rate of Return?
BetInfo 24’s proofing for 6pt Plan goes way back to February of this year and since then, the service has produced an overall profit of 183.98 points at the time of writing. That is a pretty impressive number for some 6 and a bit months. This comes out at a very strong 30.5 points per month which is no small feat and is a very tidy amount of extra income.
For those who prefer to consider the ROI, this is an equally impressive figure. BetInfo 24 have calculated this at 24%. Longer term, there is still potential for this to swing one way or the other, but honestly, I feel like 6pt Plan could lose a few percent off this figure and it would still look pretty good.
Conclusion for 6pt Plan
Honestly, I really don’t think that BetInfo 24 have found themselves onto a bad thing with 6pt Plan. It is a very capable looking and surprisingly solid tipster service. Whilst there are a few problems that I have with the service, and I will come to them later, by and large there are a lot of positives to takeaway.
First things first, I want to talk about that profit. For my money, if a tipster is doing between 15 and 20 points per month with any sort of consistency, then that is a pretty good place to start. 6pt Plan is smashing that so far.
What is really impressive is that it has done this with just one losing month which at a 3.1 point loss was pretty minimal. Compare this to months with some 47, 55 and 67 points of profit and you start to see where the potential lies. In the interest of fairness, I should also highlight that there are months where there have been very minimal wins of just a few points as well.
Moving on from that, I want to talk a little bit about discipline. This is something that every tipster service will talk about you having, but the way that 6pt Plan operates means that it is pretty difficult to stray from the path. Now, this can be seen with level stakes as well, but the variation in stakes, I believe, helps keep things a bit more interesting.
On top of all of this, you have the cherry on top which is the costs. Honestly, BetInfo 24 aren’t asking a lot at all for 6pt Plan and it is pretty much bang on what I would expect to pay for a tipster service of this nature. That means that there is plenty of potential for value for money, whilst the lack of losing months mean you shouldn’t be wasting too much cash funding the service.
Now, there are some conditions that I have when looking at 6pt Plan and not surprisingly, the big one is those losing streaks. They are relatively common, and they will eat into your betting bank. There are numerous examples of losing streaks that whilst not huge in numbers, do add up due to the staking plan.
If you are disciplined and don’t balk at the thought of losing a bit of money, then this won’t be a deal breaker. But it is very important to come into 6pt Plan not just being prepared for these kinds of losses, but actively expecting them. This is very much a long term service and you really have to ride out the rough with the smooth.
So, what does all this mean? I would say that being fair, 6pt Plan is a pretty decent looking service. It isn’t too expensive, it has strong profit potential, and it will definitely provide you with the thrills and spills that keep betting interesting.
With that said, you really do need to have that discipline and a longer term viewpoint if you want to make this work for you. Losing almost all of your bank and still following through on bets will eventually serve you well, but it could be a long time before you are back into that black.
For my money, if you can stick with it, then there are much worse options out there than 6pt Plan. I know that, because I see so many of them week in week out. What I will say is that this isn’t for everybody though, and despite the positives, it really isn’t a service that you should take on lightly.
