Advantage Play Secrets Review Mike Cruickshank

Advantage Play Secrets is a product from well known bettor and product creator Mike Cruickshank. It is a package of different strategies, each of which should help you to make a low risk profit.

What does the product offer?

Product creators come and go and so when one manages to not just hold my attention, but to actively still be working a number of years later… Well, chances are that they’re something pretty special. I don’t believe that I have ever attempted to hide my admiration for what Mike Cruickshank does. In fact, I would go as far as to say that he is brilliant example of what a good product creator should be. His products are always straight forward, they work in differing situations and most importantly, they do what they claim.

All of this brings me neatly onto Advantage Play Secrets. Whilst Mike Cruickshank has made his name through matched betting (a betting strategy that carries no risk if done correctly), this is a bit of a departure. Personally, I don’t think that this is a bad thing. Matched betting is all well and good, but it can be on the restrictive side for a number of reason. Advantage Play Secrets however appears to continue Mike Cruickshank’s legacy of successful and low risk betting strategies and as such, I am actually quite excited to look at the service.

In terms of what you are getting, there is actually quite a lot on offer and I don’t really know where to start. Essentially, Advantage Play Secrets is made up of 4 different betting systems. These differ massively from one another and I fully intend to cover them in detail below. There is however something of an order to things which Mike Cruickshank talks about in some detail when you buy Advantage Play Secrets. If you follow this advice, you will essentially be building a bigger bank with which to start your betting career.

Leading on from this, it is worth noting that Advantage Play Secrets is definitely a user friendly package which is something that I believe is missing from a lot of betting system based products. In fact, I have very recently written about another betting system that was almost at the end of the scale. It used complicated terms and made everything difficult, a shame for a system that was so fundamentally simple.

If there is one thing that I would say could be a problem with Advantage Play Secrets, it is that you definitely have to have a long term and disciplined view. Whilst I don’t think that any one system is particularly complicated, some of them are slow burners. When this is the case you have to be genuinely willing to continue to bankroll losers until the wins come in. This can mean losing money in the short term to make it back in the longer term.

How does the product work?

As I have mentioned, there are four systems that make up Advantage Play Secrets and each of these works on their own merit. As such, I have decided to break this segment of the article down into dedicated sections for each aspect. Obviously Mike Cruickshank has worked hard to develop the methods contained within Advantage Play Secrets and so I won’t be going into too much detail. Whilst consumers have a right to know, the creator also has a right to have their intellectual property protected.

The starting point for Advantage Play Secrets is recommended as the Golden Parachute method. This is named by Mike Cruickshank for the fact that it allows you to quickly build your betting bank into a “parachute” that will allow you to bankroll the riskier options. It is a piece of software which helps you to manipulate price movements. By calculating the bets that you need to place and the stakes that you should be placing, the Golden Parachute allows you to minimise risk from betting. The method employed is a very calculated affair and is pretty straight forward really, allowing it to be used for a consistent profit from the get go.

The Dutching Bounty Method is, as the name suggests, a dutching based system. For those who aren’t familiar with the concept, dutching is a method of betting which involves placing precisely calculated stakes on horses to minimise losses or at best, guarantee a victory. Advantage Play Secrets comes with a full calculator for this which will allow you to work out the relevant stakes etc. The Dutching Bounty Method is not necessarily a quick earner with there being some small risk, however you are talking about maximum losses of £10 with profit potential in excess of £50 per bet.

Next we have something a little more complex in the shape of a method of using bookmaker offers on accumulator bets. By following the training included as a part f Advantage Play Secrets, Acca Booster will help you to find which accumulator offers are able to provide good value. I believe that it naturally goes without saying that this approach to betting carries substantially more risk than  the other methods.

Finally, there is Betfair Matched Bettors Exploit.

For those who aren’t aware of how Mike Cruickshank made his name, it was through matched betting. I won’t go into detail on how this works as there is plenty of information available elsewhere. The important takeaway is that matched betting influences the odds available on betting exchanges. Using this information, Mike Cruickshank basically exploits the fact that there is advance knowledge of where value can be best obtained. It is worth pointing out that this is probably the riskiest aspect of Advantage Play Secrets.

No one method is particularly stand out here and the whole of Advantage Play Secrets is best viewed as a miniature portfolio of betting strategies.

What is the initial investment?

In terms of pricing, it would seem reasonable for Mike Cruickshank to ask quite a lot for Advantage Play Secrets. At £99 plus VAT for 12 months of access, I actually believe that it is fairly priced. Whilst this may sound like a lot of money as an initial outlay, it is actually less than £25 per service. To put this in context, I have seen much worse systems cost more than this.

It is also worth pointing out that Advantage Play Secrets comes with a 14 day trial which costs you just £1. With the right staking etc. it isn’t inconceivable that you could earn the annual cost during the trial. On top of this, because Advantage Play Secrets is sold through Clickbank, this also means that you have a full 60 day money back guarantee in place if you find that the service isn’t for you.

What is the rate of return?

There isn’t really any advertised rate of return for Advantage Play Secrets and honestly, there isn’t really a way of accurately gauging this. I don’t doubt that there is plenty of potential to make money through Advantage Play Secrets, this is pretty much standard for anything from Mike Cruickshank. As I have already touched upon, I believe that it isn’t outside the realm of possibility that you could make your subscription within 14 days.


One of the single most reassuring things about Advantage Play Secrets is where it is coming from. Mike Cruickshank has a long history of putting out quality products and there is nothing to suggest that this will be any different. Those coming into the fray expecting the typical Mike Cruickshank experience may actually find themselves a little disappointed. Whilst I can’t deny that some of the aspects of Advantage Play Secrets are low risk, I don’t believe that this is near the norm.

If I do have some criticism about Advantage Play Secrets it is that you have to be very committed to some of the systems. For example, the Acca Booster has some genuinely very impressive profit potential. It also has the added bonus of the thrill that comes with an accumulator landing. The fact of the matter though is that you may have to keep backing them in order to win. This takes a lot of discipline and willingness that will not be for everybody.

In terms of the question of value for money, I have no doubts that there is definitely value to be had here. The fact that there is such a large initial outlay is a little bit of a negative but in some ways, I feel it works for Advantage Play Secrets as a larger product. The fact of the matter is this. Advantage Play Secrets is by no means well suited to everybody. In fact, I would go as far as to say that because you have to have that commitment to making the different systems work for you.

With all of this in mind, I don’t have any doubt that I would recommend Advantage Play Secrets. It isn’t necessarily a perfect product and those who are familiar with Mike Cruickshank’s works purely through Bonus Bagging and other matched betting products may want to consider looking elsewhere. For my money though, Advantage Play Secrets is probably one of the better betting systems that I have seen on the market for a considerable amount of time.
