Bill’s Big Winners is a new to market horse racing tipster service which is operated by one Bill Stavely. He claims that his approach to betting can provide some substantial income through horse racing.
Introduction to Bill’s Big Winners
Out of all of the major sports that people tend to bet on, I find that one of the most consistent in terms of obtaining value is horse racing. There are a lot of reasons for this that I won’t bore you with. This is quite an important factor though, because there simply aren’t all that many ways that you can bet on horse racing. But there are a number of exotic accumulator types that, recently, seem to be making a lot of appearances in tipster services. And today, I am looking at one of the bigger ones (before we get into crazy territory).
Bill’s Big Winners is a new tipster service which is based predominantly around a certain type of bet (that I will come to later). And according to the tipster behind the service, Bill Savely, he has been hugely successful with it. And with bets supposedly coming at the at more than 140 times the initial stake, it is easy to see the appeal here. Make no mistake, if this is able to win, as claimed, you are going to be very bloody wealthy.
Of course, as is so often the case with services of this nature, Bill’s Big Winners isn’t necessarily all that it seems to be either. The existence of some historically impressive results is not necessarily indicative of what you can expect from the service. Furthermore, all of the examples of big winning bets that Bill Savely makes are for historic bets with no real recent updates. These are things that also make me quite cynical. So, let’s get straight into it, and see whether or not this can really deliver.
What Does Bill’s Big Winners Offer?
As far as tipster services go, Bill’s Big Winners isn’t really that complex a beast. Much of what Bill Savely is doing is all very straight forward. However, the approach to betting isn’t really. The fact of the matter is that there just aren’t all that many tipsters out there who are placing the types of bets that this service is built around. And it is because of this that I want to start by talking about this.
You see, Bill’s Big Winners is based around a single bet type. Specifically, a Canadian. For those of you who may not be familiar with this bet type, it is a monster. It involves bringing together an incredible 26 different bets under one roof. This has a massive impact on a number of elements that pertain to tipster services that I will talk about over the course of this review.
But before I get into all of that, I want to talk about the actual bets that you are placing. Effectively, a Canadian is made up of 10 doubles, 10 trebles, 5 four fold accumulators, and a five fold accumulator. That is a fair old amount of betting that you are doing every day really. Even if it is hidden under the guise of simply being “one bet”.
Naturally, all of this does mean that when everything comes together, the odds are very substantial. As I’ve already mentioned, Bill Savely shows a betting slip showing effective odds of 140/1 whilst other full winners have come in at 77/1and 88/1. Meanwhile, the odds on the actual horses that you are betting on are at the low to middling end of things. On the rare occasion Bill’s Big Winners gets into double digit odds on a horse, but that really I the exception.
Now, let’s talk about the volume of bets that you are placing. Something that I always consider to be a bit of a difficult subject when it comes to something like Bill’s Big Winners. Effectively, you are of course, being asked to place just one bet per day. But because a Canadian is made up of so many bets, I’m never quite certain that it is fair to view it that way. Especially when you factor in the staking plan.
You see, Bill Savely talks about capping 1 bet per day, but then immediately says that you are staking £1 on each of the 26 bets. Something that is referred to as “low risk” (a point I will be coming back to). The issue that I really have is that there is no advice on a betting bank, as such, the context your stakes is a little bit questionable.
Personally, with something like Bill’s Big Winners, because you are betting the same amount day in and day out, those 26 £1 stakes should really be viewed as a single point. And I would want to have at least (and we really are talking the bare minimum) a month’s worth of betting in my bank. That would mean that the “bank required to start” which is “low and low risk” would sit at £728. A quite substantial amount.
Especially in light of the fact that there isn’t really a whole lot of insight into the strike rate. There is a suggestion that you will win often with Bill’s Big Winners, however, it is interesting to me that Bill Savely doesn’t actually provide a number. Furthermore, the evidence backing this up is questionable at best in my eyes.
This only really leaves the logistical elements to talk about. And honestly, there isn’t a whole lot to say here. Bill Savely provides a very basic service which just about does what you would expect. Namely, selections are issued to subscribers directly via email. These land the evening before racing (typically before 11pm) and are typically available every day but Sunday.
One of the things that is noteworthy here is a lack of insight into odds and what kind of thing you should be looking for. This at least gives you an opportunity to try and get some decent odds, a point Bill Savely is keen to highlight. Unfortunately, this does require a lot of time as (to the best of my knowledge) there is no odds comparison site that covers the more exotic bet types that Bill’s Big Winners favours.
How Does Bill’s Big Winners Work?
The marketing for Bill’s Big Winners takes an interesting approach to how the service works. Namely by not actually telling you anything about how the service really works. We are told that it isn’t a get rich scheme, that you can’t expect winners every single day, and most tellingly, that you have to be “willing to give this a proper for at least a month”. This last one is a very salient point, as I will come to.
Outside of this, there are a lot of vague references made to a “tried and tested strategy”. This seems to lean more towards the idea of betting on Canadian bets counts as a strategy. An idea that is fundamentally based on the notion that because you are covering more bets with each bet, you have more chance of seeing returns and less chance of outright losing a bet.
Unfortunately, what isn’t discussed at all is what the selection process for Bill’s Big Winners actually entails. This is incredibly important in my mind because, at the end of the day, Bill Savely is picking 5 different bets out every day. I don’t think it’s unreasonable to want to have some understanding of what the rationale is behind these selections. If there is in fact any. I don’t expect a detailed breakdown, but I don’t think it is unreasonable to have some idea of what you’re getting into.
This is especially applicable in light of the fact that there isn’t really any proofing for Bill’s Big Winners. Sure, Bill Savely provides a few examples of winning bets, but without context, there is no way of really understanding what you can expect from this. In my eyes, that only highlights the need for insight into the selection process even more, because you are effectively coming into this blind.
What is the Initial Investment?
Bill Savely has two options available if you want to sign up to Bill’s Big Winners. the first of these provides you with access to selections until the end of March. It is priced at £22.50 plus VAT, making for a total cost of £27 which works out at less than a pound a day.
Alternatively, you can sign up until the end of August which is priced at £47.50 plus VAT. This makes for a total cost of £57 which in turn works out at less than £10 a month. Personally, I can’t help but feel that this is the option that Bill Savely wants you to pick.
Which ever you choose, Bill’s Big Winners does come with a full 30 day money back guarantee. This is mentioned in the sales material (which is a positive for Bill Savely), and it is also backed up by Clickbank. They are generally pretty good at delivering on this.
What is the Rate of Return?
In terms of the income potential, I want to address a few key statements that are made. Firstly, Bill Savely talks about turning £1 stakes into “£3,646.67 profit”. A number that is really frustrating to me because, in my eyes, it is a bit misleading. As well as this being a single bet that has come in, I remain frustrated by the use of £1 stakes. This implies a much larger return than can actually be expected.
The other ones are that Bill Savely has had a profit every single week, and that in 2020, he made £34,264.10 profit using the same selections he shares through Bill’s Big Winners. That idea of a profit every week, I will immediately dismiss. Without proofing, I refuse to put weight behind this statement.
Secondly, that £34,000 profit would mean 1,317.85 points (using £26 as a single stake) of profit in a year. I am highly sceptical of this number. For some context, a decently performing tipster might produce 250 points of profit in a year. That would mean that Bill Savely supposedly made more in one year with Bill’s Big Winners than a decent tipster would make in 5 years. I am again, highly sceptical.
Conclusion for Bill’s Big Winners
Bill’s Big Winners is one of those products that I seem to see far too frequently that is a wonderful idea. On paper. Much of what Bill Savely does seems to make sense, and that is the important thing to keep in mind. That it all just needs to seem to make sense. Probably just enough to keep you invested for about a month or so.
Because here’s the thing, and I will expand on this, I’m not entirely certain that Bill’s Big Winners is an entirely genuine tipster service. It doesn’t strike me as a coincidence that the window in which you can guarantee a refund through Clickbank is 30 days, whilst, in the meantime, Bill Savely pushes you to trial this for a good month. Just long enough that you couldn’t get said refund…
I know that is a hell of a claim. And I don’t want to state that it is definitive fact, but it strikes me as being noteworthy, if I’m honest. But it definitely isn’t the only issue that I have with Bill’s Big Winners. There are so many things that just don’t add up.
For example, Bill Savely says that he made a profit of over £34,000 last year. Maybe he did, maybe he didn’t. I know which way my belief leans. But let’s address the elephant in the room here. If he has indeed made that money, it strongly suggest that there are records being kept. Which begs the question… Where’s the proofing?
Which ties into something that is really problematic for me with Bill’s Big Winners. That is a lack of evidence. In any way, shape, or form really. The only thing that we are given that is in any way tangible, are some screenshots of betting slips. These may seem concrete enough, but they are easily fabricated. As such, I am always a little doubtful when these are presented as evidence.
Meanwhile, even the most basic of things like a selection process, is completely overlooked. As such, almost everything pertaining to Bill’s Big Winners boils down to he fact that you should take Bill Savely’s word that it is as he says it is. That just isn’t something that I can really do when that is the one person who stands to profit from the service, no matter what.
Keeping all of that in mind, I would be very much inclined to give Bill’s Big Winners a wide berth personally. The unfortunate fact of the matter is that I just don’t really see how Bill Savely is delivering on his claims. This applies both from the perspective of how feasible these claims are, as well as the lack of evidence backing them up.
Honestly, I just don’t look at this and see a viable horse racing tipster service here. The best case scenario is that you might be lucky enough to have a Canadian land, but realistically, I can only see this being a long term drain on your betting bank.
