Acca Banker is a new to market football betting tipster service which is being operated by Dan Robbinson. He claims to have produced some very substantial profits in a short space of time.
Introduction to Acca Banker
There are a lot of different ways to be successful in betting. Some people like to mitigate their risk and win small, but often. Others like to go all in and absorb losses knowing that when a bet lands, it lands big. With this in mind, surely the dream then is to find something that can provide you with those substantial wins, all whilst carrying little risk. Right?
Well, of course it is. And if I ever come across such a service, you can guarantee that you’ll be the first to know. Which leads me to todays subject, Acca Banker. Because actually, Dan Robbinson is claiming that he is well positioned to offer us all that betting dream. Low risk, high profits.
Now, I am loathe to get too excited about Acca Banker if I’m honest. This is a service that has a number of potential flaws and holes in the sales material. Frankly, I have been in this line of work to know that these red flags are usually there for a very good reason. None the less, let’s dive right into Dan Robbinson’s service, and see if he really is able to beat the bookies.
What Does Acca Banker Offer?
When you look at what Dan Robbinson actually offers with his service, I will admit hat it really looks like you are getting a very solid offering. He comes across as having a clear (albeit somewhat wide ranging) strategy for Acca Banker and that is appealing. In fact, I would go as far as to say that he does a very good job of sounding convincing.
So, that strategy. First things first, there is the approach to betting. If you follow Acca Banker, you will predominantly be betting on English football, starting at the Premier League and going down to the National League. There are also occasional bets when there is international football on.
Obviously, this approach does somewhat limit the logistics of the service. As such, if you are following Dan Robbinson’s advice you can expect to only really be busy over the weekends when there is football on. Personally, I don’t see this as being an inherent problem and actually, there are a lot of people that this will suit well.
As is the norm for a tipster service in this day and age, selections are sent out to subscribers directly via email. These will typically be sent out on the day of the matches with Dan Robbinson claiming that you will receive them “with plenty of notice before the kick off”. Unfortunately, this isn’t particularly helpful if you are following Acca Banker and have a schedule to keep.
Moving on to the subject of the bets themselves, well, what you can expect is right there in the name. Acca Banker is exclusively concerned with betting on accumulators. These take in a variety of markets however, including backing a team to win, draw, and various goals markets. The size of these accumulators can range from relatively small trebles all the way to 6 folds.
Naturally, you would expect to see some pretty big odds from a service based around accas and Acca Banker does deliver on this somewhat. Typically speaking, you should find odds of between 5/1 and 10/1 available for Dan Robbinson’s advice, however Oddschecker’s accumulator builder will help you to get the best possible odds here.
Now, as you would probably expect, this isn’t a particularly high volume affair. In fact, Dan Robbinson will typically send out just 2 or 3 accumulators each weekend. Naturally, these don’t necessarily win very often (a topic I will come to shortly), and as such, this does help manage that risk element.
With that said, the strike rate for Acca Banker stands at some 39% according to Dan Robbinson. And that is interesting to me, because that is a very high figure given the odds that are involved. For my money, I will take this with a pinch of salt.
After all, there is no real proofing for the service. We are simply given a few examples of winning bets that Dan Robbinson says he has had come in over the last 8 weeks. Realistically, if these bets have actually been placed, I would bet my bottom dollar that you are dealing with cherry picked results.
I am certainly not convinced that they are an accurate portrayal of what you can expect from Acca Banker in the longer term. It isn’t even like there shouldn’t be data to proof. Dan Robbinson says that he has been making money for the last couple of years, and any serious bettor will keep records for how they are doing. So, sharing those shouldn’t be a big deal if he’s genuine, right?
Lastly, I want to talk about the staking plan that is in place for Acca Banker. I talked earlier about there being a strategy and this is very much a key part of what Dan Robbinson is doing. What you are advised to do is take your initial starting bank (Dan Robbinson says he started with £300) and you stake 3% of that, rounded to the nearest £10, on each acca.
This compounding means that you can theoretically start out with pretty small initial stake and build them up as you win. If you have a week where you don’t win, then the stakes remain the same.
How Does Acca Banker Work?
At this point, I will admit that Acca Banker all starts to look rather neatly tied up with a proverbial bow. Compounding your stakes, bringing together accumulators to get the best possible odds. Dan Robbinson does a fantastic job of making it all sound reasonable. What he doesn’t do however, is actually explain any of his selection process.
This is massively frustrating for me as I am a strong advocate for understanding what you are getting into with any tipster service or betting system. I don’t think it is unreasonable to want to know that the tipster who’s advice you are going to trust isn’t just throwing darts at a board.
That is a bit of an exaggeration, I admit, but the principle of it stands true. I often say with things like this, you wouldn’t buy a TV without details of the specs and actually watching some live TB on it, would you? So why should it be any different with a tipster who has just given you some very selective bets that supposedly show you what to expect.
Here’s the thing for me. I know that a lot of tipsters do this. They don’t want to give anything away, and I wouldn’t expect Dan Robbinson to go into detail. But given that lack of proofing that I have touched upon, there isn’t really any way to look at Acca Banker as a bigger picture and gauge what you can expect for the future either, and that is a big problem for me.
What is the Initial Investment?
There are two options available if you want to subscribe to Acca Banker. The first of these is a 4 week “test run” (as Dan Robbinson describes it). This is priced at £37 plus VAT. Alternatively, you can sign up for the rest of the season for a cost of “just” £97 plus VAT. Obviously, you are encouraged to sign up for this latter option.
Whichever option you choose, Dan Robbinson rather generously says that if you aren’t in profit after 30 days then Dan Robbinson says “I’ll refund your full fee and cover the costs”. Now this is a little bit vague to me. I’m presuming that he means the “cost” of a refund rather than how much money potentially bad tips have cost you.
This is particularly interesting in the case of Acca Banker as the service is being sold through Clickbank who are offering a 60 day money back guarantee on the product. This is a little bit naughty and frankly, it does a lot to destroy any small amount of faith I may have had in Dan Robbinson.
What is the Rate of Return?
The main draw of any service is how much money you can expect to make and Dan Robbinson does a very good job of making his claim of headlining claim of “£8,051 In The First 8 Weeks Of This Season” look very reasonable. Of course, most of this number is based around that compounded staking plan.
In theory, this is all entirely above board with evidence provided to back up Dan Robbinson’s claims. Hell, he even has to change bookies part way through because his account was restricted. It sounds very believable if you have ever enjoyed a successful betting run. But I’m just not convinced by a few screenshots of claimed betting slips.
Conclusion for Acca Banker
I will admit that on the surface of things, Acca Banker looks pretty decent. In fact, I would go as far as to say that to Joe Average, it looks pretty bloody good. Truthfully, the numbers don’t seem excessive and there is enough evidence that if you didn’t know what to look out for, you could buy into it.
A lot of the problems that are really apparent to me though are things that lie beneath the surface. For example, there is that discrepancy about the refund period. It doesn’t seem like a big thing if you don’t understand the wider market. A mistake that could perhaps easily be made, right?
Or equally, it could be an internet marketer who is looking to avoid getting refunds against them through Clickbank. I lean more towards this than a genuine mistake for a lot of reasons. For example, that refund policy is decidedly vague.
And yet, it also makes it seem like Dan Robbinson is doing you a favour. Especially that bit about covering costs. I mean, surely somebody who is willing to shoulder that kind of burden couldn’t possibly have another agenda, could they?
Given that the vendor who is marketing and selling Acca Banker has put out a number of other tipster services his year alone (none of which have received favourable reviews), I am inclined to believe that they do have another agenda. This is also why I don’t believe that discrepancy on the refund policy is a genuine mistake.
Even putting this to one side though, there are a number of things that stand out to me. Like that point about Dan Robbinson having done this for a few years, but not actually backing this claim up with any evidence. Or even more obviously, the way he deigns not to show his losing betting slips as well. Why wouldn’t you if you are going to admit that you have had bets that lost?
Here’s the thing. I will openly say that I could be wrong. Dan Robbinson could be above board and I really could be missing out on £8,000 over the next couple of months. But that is a very slim chance. Honestly, it isn’t even like Acca Banker is cheap enough that you can say it might be worth a punt and trialling it on paper.
For £37 per month, you can get access to a number of genuine and proven tipster services. Ones that, admittedly, may not make you £4,000 per month, but then I don’t think Acca Banker would do this either.
The bottom line is that in a competitive market, you should be certain in your confidence about a service. I don’t really understand how anybody who actually bets even semi seriously could look at Acca Banker and be confident in it. There are just too many red flags. As such, I would give this one a very wide berth.
