Bet Weekender is a new to market tipster service which is being offered by the now reasonably well known WAP Tipsters stable of tipsters. As the name suggests, it is focused on weekend sporting events.
Introduction to Bet Weekender
When you do what I do, and look at the number of products that I look at, things can start to blur together a bit. Sometimes, this leads me to be a bit confused (I have “discovered” good betting systems, only to find out I’ve already looked at them more times than I care to count). Usually, it doesn’t do much harm to anybody really. But it can also lead me to get a bit of a single minded view when thinking about what somebody may want from a betting system. Because not all of us are out here looking for multiple bets per day and consistent profit.
The fact is that people bet for a lot of reasons. Some people just do it to make a sporting event better, others are solely interested in pursing big wins. These are the kinds of people I would call “casual bettors”. And Bet Weekender is a service that may well be a good option for those. Who is your causal bettor? Well, they prefer to bet on the weekend when they can follow events, they don’t mind losing £20 here and there. What they do like though is getting £45 in that can be Saturday’s beer money. And WAP Tipsters are really catering for that market.
Honestly, it is actually quite refreshing to have a chance to look at something like Bet Weekender. The fact of the matter is that there are some very apparent trends when it comes to the betting and tipster industry. These inevitably mean that you tend to see the same things over and over. So, when something really goes out of its way to break the mould, it is always quite exciting to see. And the fact that WAP Tipsters are putting their name on this does add some additional weight to things. With all of that said, let’s get into it.
What Does Bet Weekender Offer?
Talking about what is on offer with Bet Weekender is a bit of a difficult thing. Sure, this is fundamentally still a tipster service, but it isn’t quite like the things that I normally look at. Where you can normally start breaking a service down and looking at everything that encompasses it, with this, you can’t really. It is all about as simple as it gets. Which if I think about it really hard, is probably the best that you could expect.
Nonetheless, I will still try and follow my normal structure of review. So, what are the logistics of Bet Weekender? Well, as the name very clearly states, you are betting only on the weekends. This makes it a somewhat niche approach to betting, especially compared to most things that I look at. But of course, that is the entire point of the service.
The way that WAP Tipsters manage things is pretty much what I would expect of any of their tipster services though. I actually really like the fact that they haven’t half arsed Bet Weekender just because it’s not a “full service” (in the traditional sense of the word). What this means is if you are subscribed, you can expect to receive your bets in the mornings, typically between 8am and 10am.
As you might expect, these are issued directly via email, however, Bet Weekender also has its own Telegram group. For those who aren’t familiar, this is a messaging app that you can download onto pretty much any modern smartphone. Importantly, it means that when WAP Tipsters send out selections there is no missing them. Something that has happened to me before with emails.
Now, let’s talk about the kind of betting that you will be doing. Because Bet Weekender covers a good few bases, which is nice to see. As you might expect, the focus is on the two biggest betting markets in the UK. Namely, football and horse racing. But there is a lot more nuance to it than that.
Generally speaking, you will be seeing three types of bets. The first of these is a horse racing NAP. For those who aren’t familiar with this term, it is a horse that is usually a tipsters pick of the day. This can, under normal circumstances, mean simply betting on favourites. But that isn’t the case with Bet Weekender. There is still some value to be had and reasonable winners to come in.
Then there are the football bets. There is usually a double bet advised as well as a larger acca. These have some really big odds with WAP Tipsters showing winners at up to 30/1 on the doubles. As you would expect, the accas get much bigger in terms of the odds. They show an example of a recent winner for Bet Weekender that saw £347.84 returned off a £5 stakes. So there are some definitely jackpot winners to be had.
The stakes will tend to vary a little depending on the bet that you are placing, but you are generally looking at level stakes. The evidence that WAP Tipsters provide show £10 per bet on most which I think is pretty reasonable for a service of this nature. But honestly, this is going to be a highly personalised service in which most people will simply want to bet what they can afford for that weekend.
Fortunately, because of the way that WAP Tipsters have set Bet Weekender up (especially in terms of the pricing), I think that there is plenty of opportunity to ensure that you can find your feet here. This also goes some way to countering the rather disappointing lack of proofing that exists (outside of a few choice betting slips).
How Does Bet Weekender Work?
In terms of how Bet Weekender works, there is an unfortunate and quite substantial lack of information about… Well, quite a lot really. Here though, I can’t help but feel that to some degree, it doesn’t necessarily matter as much. Which is a statement that I don’t make lightly and I really want to qualify properly.
I want to start by saying of course it is quite frustrating that there isn’t a whole lot of information on what the selection process entails. That is a basic that I hold most tipsters to. Which begs the question of why Bet Weekender should be different? The main difference comes down to the investment. If I am following a daily tipster who wants me to stake hundreds of pounds on their selections, I really want to know that they know what they are doing.
Of course, none of that lets Bet Weekender off the hook. I stand by the fact this is basic information that you should expect. But at the same time, I feel it’s reasonable to have some faith in WAP Tipsters. At the end of the day this is a tipster stable that has a decent number of tipsters on their books. Does it really seem unreasonable to imagine that some of those experts might be supplying a tip per day? In my eyes, it isn’t. But importantly, you can try a stripped down version for free.
This is a very important addition to Bet Weekender that honestly, makes up for a lot of the flaws in talking about how it works. For example, it is hard not to look at WAP Tipsters’ claim that 500 people have had this live proofed to them over the space of a year. Well, where is said proofing? Sure, you can make a stink about the fact that isn’t there, or you can sign up to a free group with reduced tips and give this a go for yourself, or even take advantage of the minimal trial pricing.
What is the Initial Investment?
In order for something like Bet Weekender to be attractive, it cannot really afford to be expensive. This is a service aimed at a more casual punter who might not see paying for tips as an investment of any sort. And WAP Tipsters deliver with their pricing package which really is incredibly reasonable.
The cheapest option is a weekly subscription. This is priced at just £5 which really isn’t bad for a weekend of tips. If you want to sign up on a monthly basis there is substantially better value to be had as it is priced at just £15. By far and away the best value option though is signing up to Bet Weekender on a quarterly basis. This will set you back just £25.
Of note is that there is no sort of money back guarantee with Bet Weekender, however WAP Tipsters do provide a full 2 week trial which is priced at just £1. Whilst this sounds generous, it is only 2 weekends, but I think that is probably enough to give you an idea of whether you will get anything from the longer subscriptions.
What is the Rate of Return?
WAP Tipsters don’t make any specific claims in terms of how much you can expect to make with Bet Weekender, and I feel like that is ultimately quite reasonable. The fact is that this isn’t something that you are necessarily going to be winning with all that often, but you will be betting in a way that carries the potential for substantial “jackpot” wins. The focus here in my mind is providing informed bets to those who may otherwise be utilising guesswork.
Conclusion for Bet Weekender
I think it is incredibly important to keep one thing in mind when I talk about Bet Weekender. This might not be a service for you. In actual fact, this is a tipster service that I think won’t necessarily be something that works for most people. However, that doesn’t mean for a single minute that WAP Tipsters are onto a bad thing.
The reason that I don’t believe that Bet Weekender will be for most people who are reading this is simple. Generally speaking, when I look at betting systems, it is through the lens of somebody who is looking to make the jump to taking betting seriously. And whilst I believe that this is a service that does ultimately carry some potential for profit, the long term and consistent approach that I usually seek isn’t really applicable.
So, let’s take the time to look at Bet Weekender in a slightly different light than I usually would. Obviously, there aren’t direct results to look at (which I will admit is a bit of a disappointment and quite frustrating really). But WAP Tipsters do show off a few winners, and they are very impressive. Importantly, they really are the kind of thing that will pay for your service for you.
Even the smallest win, which was just £45, would almost keep you in betting for 6 months. But even if you don’t hit those wins, or you don’t want to be tied down, the pricing that WAP Tipsters have in place is something that works really well for casual punters. Only fancy bets for the weekend? That’s just £5. For some seemingly well informed betting advice, that isn’t bad. Want to bet for a month, see how you get on, £15. All ultimately pocket change.
The fact of the matter is this. If you are betting purely for enjoyment, and you’re on a bit of a budge, I don’t think there are many better options than Bet Weekender. It is affordable, it is manageable, and eventually, I do believe that it will be profitable for most people (with that focus on eventually). For that kind of punter that WAP Tipsters are clearly looking to attract, this is one of the best tipster services on the market.
If however you are looking for something more robust, more involved, and realistically, ultimately more consistent, Bet Weekender will be a big no go. But that is fine in my eyes. Because for once, WAP Tipsters have made something that isn’t really for us.
