There is also an informants network in place for Betting Opportunity with the longer odds selections coming through this method.
What is the initial investment?
Betting Opportunity is only available on a quarterly or six monthly subscription service. These cost £99 and £149 respectively. Being a Betfan product there is no money back guarantee in place however they do say that they will review requests.
What is the rate of return?
To date Betting Opportunity has made a profit of 375.45 points of profit. It is worth noting however that in this period of time there have been two substantial losing months, it is also worth keeping in mind that this is based off bets that come with some pretty high stakes in some cases.
Betfan are usually pretty decent in their offerings but in the case of Betting Opportunity I am simply not sold. The somewhat erratic staking plan doesn’t instil confidence. Nor do the losing months where almost 100 points have dropped off on 2 occasions. This combined with the fact that you can only tie yourself into a 90 day subscription with no money back guarantee simply isn’t good enough in my book.
