Automatic Winners is a brand new horse racing tipster service which is operated by tipster Vincent Armitage. He claims to have produced some huge profits and is seemingly backed by some very big names.
Introduction to Automatic Winners
I have seen all kinds of different marketing techniques in my time doing this work. Honestly, it is quite eye opening and I love a good marketing spin as much as anybody else. Sometimes it can be because there is a genuine opportunity to learn from what others do.
Usually, it is because something is just an interesting read (if complete BS most of the time). My favourite thing though is a good headline. I’ve been doing this to get a good idea of what is genuine and what isn’t just from that.
Automatic Winners is different though. Vincent Armitage doesn’t simply apply some ridiculous headline about making £50,000 a month. Instead, there are “testimonials”. Not from customers, but The Racing Post, gg.com, Sun Racing and Daily Mail racing.
If these are genuine, then put bluntly, I have some incredibly high hopes for Automatic Winners.
Of courses this is entirely down to how Vincent Armitage has chosen to market his product. If he wants to claim that Racing Index said “This simple to use app netted one punter £2,783 in one days racing”, then Automatic Winners must be able to deliver… Right?
What Does Automatic Winners Offer?
There is, at least in my opinion, a very deliberate attempt in the sales material for Automatic Winners to obfuscate information. In fact, truth be told, Vincent Armitage has very little to say about what you can actually expect from the service. None the less, there can be some educated guesses made.
Now, Automatic Winners is touted as a piece of “industry leading scalping software on both desktop and mobile devices”. It appears to me however that Vincent Armitage is mostly using this as a fancy delivery system for tips as ultimately, nothing is automated.
In terms of the bets themselves, everything that I have seen so far seems to suggest that you will simply receive straightforward win bets from Automatic Winners. These are at least somewhat varied odds, however so far I am yet to see Vincent Armitage venture into particularly long odds.
Finally, in terms of the volume of bets, you are typically looking at the 2-4 bets mark. Once again, it feels like Automatic Winners doesn’t want to venture too far into the realm of bets that carry any real kind of risk.
In terms of a staking plan for Automatic Winners, well, there isn’t one. From what I have seen, Vincent Armitage makes no mention about how much you should be staking anywhere and that massively concerns me.
This is in no small part down to the fact that all of the claimed results for the service are in pounds and pence. As such, there is no context for what this really means. Furthermore, if you stake wrong, I have a funny feeling that you will end up burning through a betting bank rather quickly.
On top of all of this, it should be noted that there is no information provided about what kind of results you can expect when it comes to a strike rate. First of all, Vincent Armitage doesn’t make any real claims about Automatic Winners.
That is definitely the first problem for me. Secondly, and arguably the more pressing element is the fact that there is no proofing provide. Whilst this stops us calculating any results, it is more frustrating in so much as there is no real way of knowing what to expect.
How Does Automatic Winners Work?
Whilst the lack of tangible information is definitely a problem when it comes to Automatic Winners, this is somewhat offset by the fact that Vincent Armitage spends a lot of time telling us how he supposedly finds bets.
He claims that he has become privy to some top inside information having met some very influential people within the [horse racing] industry. As an IT software programmer, he decided that he was able to use this information along with his skills to create a piece of software to increase the chances of winning.
The software that is behind Automatic Winners supposedly looks a huge number of different factors ranging from track condition and the time of the race, all the way to past performances from both the jockey and the horse (as well as how they combine). There is also that element of insider information that has already been discussed, however with no real detail in this regard, I can’t help but treat the claim with some cynicism.
What is the Initial Investment?
According to Vincent Armitage, the RRP for his Automatic Winners software is £199 (which when you factor in VAT means that you are paying closer to £240). That is not necessarily a monumental amount of money to ask, however as I will explore, in the case of Automatic Winners, it is very difficult to justify.
Fortunately, we are being offered Automatic Winners at a reduced rate of £21.99 which we are expected to believe is genuine and not at all a cheap marketing ploy.
There is a 60 day money back guarantee in place for the service, however this is only mentioned in passing.
What is the Rate of Return?
Vincent Armitage doesn’t personally make any claims about the income potential of Automatic Winners. Instead, this is left to some massively questionable testimonials which make some frankly ridiculous claims of income. One refers to making over £170,000 in 10 months.
Elsewhere, another user (who refers to Vincent Armitage as “Simon” in the email) made some £27,000 in 6 weeks (hmmmmm!).
In the headlines that are supposedly from top publications about Automatic Winners, it is claimed that £2,783 was made in one day. These numbers roughly correlate, but there is nothing that leads me to believe that they are genuine.
Conclusion on the Automatic Winners service
I have looked at a lot of very questionable tipster services this last week but none of them have been as transparently rubbish as Automatic Winners. There are a large number of reasons for this, so much so that I don’t really know where to start.
I want to start with one of the more prominent things which is the so called profit potential of Automatic Winners.
I find it to be interesting that there are no specific claims made, despite “testimonials” making more in 6 weeks than most people bring home in a year. If I were Vincent Armitage and Automatic Winners were really that good, I would be pushing that massively.
This leads me to the marketing, starting with the claims made at the top of the page. I don’t believe for one minute, nor have I seen anything, which suggests to me that publications like the Racing Post, The Sun Racing or any of the other names mentioned are genuine.
This is a bold move and honestly, I wouldn’t be surprised if the website for Automatic Winners ends up being hit with a cease an desist of some sort. This making up of quotes also strikes me as rather concerning.
Honestly, I can’t help but feel like what has happened with Automatic Winners is that the vendor who is selling the service has put a lot of time and effort into making it seem like slick product. Unfortunately, that rarely translates into a service that is necessarily good.
In fact, in my experience, the more time that a service is willing to spend trying to convince you that it’s great when some decent proofing would do this, the more likely it is that you will lose out in the long run.
I’d avoid this one.
