Dutch Betting Suite is a new to market product which is being offered by Steve Davidson of Winningmore. It aims to provide users with a way of identifying potential Dutch bets.
Introduction to Dutch Betting Suite
There are a lot of different approaches that you can take to betting. This week alone, I have looked at a tipster service that aims to utilise some rather exotic accumulators, an independent sports betting tipster that offers a very unique approach to sports betting, and a tipster that claimed to provide you with hundreds of thousands of pounds. And I’ll be blunt, most of it is crap.
This is quite important to keep in mind because whilst I haven’t liked everything that he has put out, Steve Davidson and Winningmore are at least very genuine. And the latest bit of software that has been released by them is interesting in so much as it uses a well known betting principle which has the potential to effectively guarantee that you don’t lose.
If you are an experienced bettor, and you have looked at the name of this service, you can probably tell that it utilises dutching. A bet type that I will talk about in much more detail later on. But of course, the real question that exists here is whether or not it is actually any good?
What Does Dutch Betting Suite Offer?
In some respects, there just isn’t a whole lot to Dutch Betting Suite. And in some respects, I feel like I could just leave a lot of this review there. But I don’t believe that this would do justice to what is on offer. Because actually, Steve Davidson has put together a pretty good product. Don’t get me wrong, you aren’t breaking new ground here, but if you do something simple well, you don’t have to.
So, at its core, Dutch Betting Suite is a piece of cloud based software. For those of you who may not be familiar with this term, effectively, it means that it is online. This means that you can access it from wherever you want, and on any device (Steve Davidson is keen to point out that this works on smartphones, tablets, and any PC/laptop). All that you need is an internet connection.
Now what I do think it is very important to highlight is that this isn’t something that is going to help you identify selections. What Steve Davidson is providing here is ultimately a tool that will help you with placing a specific type of bet. In fact, I don’t think that it would be unreasonable to say that what you are actually buying with Dutch Betting Suite is access to a calculator that calculates stakes.
Except, I don’t really feel like that is fair. I have seen Dutching calculators before and I don’t think I’ve seen many that are nearly as in depth as Dutch Betting Suite. This is because there are a few features that make it stand out. First of all, it keeps track of your calculations.
This is helpful for those who like to keep a ledger of their betting (something I always recommend if you take betting seriously). At the end of the day, you can simply make a note of everything in your spreadsheet (or however you choose to keep your records) of what won, how much, etc. Like much of Dutch Betting Suite, it isn’t something that will blow you away, but it is a very welcome addition.
Where I do think that Dutch Betting Suite really shines compared to a lot of other Dutch betting calculators though is in the fact that it can be used multiple ways, with a few different built in “strategies”. To be clear, this is still just providing you with staking advice on how much to bet on what, but the calculations a slightly different.
The most basic approach is to simply tell Dutch Betting Suite how much you want to spend. You manually input bet information, how much you want to stake, and things like odds and potential commission. You can then highlight selections as either a “main bet” or a “saver bet”. Your main bets are what make you profit, the saver bets are designed to ensure that your bet doesn’t make a loss, so long as one of your selections come in.
There I also a calculator which allows you to change your staking within your “target spend”. What this effectively means is that you input your data as per above, but instead of simply using those recommended stakes, you can change the bets within. This might be helpful if you have a horse that you feel is a dead cert, but you still want to hedge your bets a bit.
Finally, you an also add a recover target. This calculator is designed to provide stakes to recover an amount after a losing bet. This of course means staking slightly more than your target spend, but it can theoretically be used to correct losing bets.
Across all options you can choose up to six selections which can be designated as “main” or “saver” bets which can theoretically cover most of the field (at least for horse racing). Of course, there is also the potential to use Dutch Betting Suite for almost any type of betting that you do, however, depending on what you are betting on it will impact the effectiveness.
How Does Dutch Betting Suite Work?
Honestly, I feel like I’ve already covered a lot about how Dutch Betting Suite works. But there are a few things that I want to add here. First of all, I think it is incredibly important to reiterate the fact that this is a tool. Steve Davidson is not offering something that will help you to identify which horses you should be betting on. It is only there to help you identify the correct stakes for a Dutch bet.
Which brings me to the crux of what Dutch Betting Suite is actually all about which is of course, Dutch bets. For those of you who aren’t familiar with this betting approach, it is something that is rather unique. Effectively, the idea is that by backing multiple horses in one race you can lock in a profit (or in the case of using Dutch Betting Suite, ensure that you receive your stake back).
Now it is very important to factor in that not every race or sporting event is going to allow you to do this. Sometimes, the odds just don’t allow for this kind of opportunity, or if they do, you may find that your overall profits are actually very small. None the less, that doesn’t mean that there aren’t those opportunities out there, but you do have to find them.
The final element of “how” Dutch Betting Suite works is basically how easy the software is to use. And here, I will say that Steve Davidson is onto a winner. Truthfully, I have historically found that Winningmore software has used a very clunky interface that lacks user friendliness. This is all incredibly straight forward and you shouldn’t have any problems if you are able to get online.
What is the Initial Investment?
Without a shadow of a doubt, one of the most appealing elements of Dutch Betting Suite is the price. At the time of writing, Steve Davidson is asking a off payment of £9.99. This represents a 50% saving on the actual value of £19.99 (a number that I actually believe to be genuine). This gives you full access to the software for 5 years.
It is worth noting that payment for this is handled directly via Paypal. This means that there is no money back guarantee on offer here. This is something that is the case with all of the products the Winningmore offer and as such, it doesn’t really come as any surprise.
What is the Rate of Return?
In terms of the income potential for Dutch Betting Suite, this is a bit of a difficult thing to discuss, because frankly, this all depends on a multitude of external factors that aren’t related to the core product. This includes things like how much you are willing to stake per bet, how much time you are willing to invest, and also how good your actual selections are.
What I will say is that there is some genuine profit potential here. Although ultimately, there will be no hard and fast rules. It is also noteworthy that Steve Davidson doesn’t actually make any claims himself which makes a lot of sense.
Conclusion for Dutch Betting Suite
So, is Dutch Betting Suite actually any good? The short answer to this is, I think, a pretty resounding yes. The fact of the matter is that the software does everything that it is supposed to do. Steve Davidson is quite upfront about what you are getting yourself into as well so you know exactly what you are getting into.
This leaves just a few things that you need to consider. First of all, is Dutch Betting Suite something that is for you? And this is probably the most important question to answer. The very nature of this means that you really need to have a half decent betting system in place first, at least, if you want t get the most out of it.
Admittedly, in theory, you could simply start picking events at random and start picking races at random. Eventually, you will find a race that can lock in that profit, but you still have to be able to identify a horse that can work if you want to actually start making money (which is of course, why almost all of us do this).
It is important for me highlight all of this because I would hate for somebody to come into Dutch Betting Suite thinking that they are getting one thing and ending up with another. Especially because whilst Steve Davidson does in fact say “We understand with betting risk has to be involved, how you manage it, will largely depend on how you win or lose”, the vast majority of the copy is dedicated to hypotheticals that suggest very little risk.
But all of this pales in significance next to the real question. Should you actually pay for Dutch Betting Suite? If I type Dutching calculator into Google, I get 238,000 results back. These come from very well known websites as well like Oddschecker. And fundamentally, they do the same thing as Steve Davidson’s software, except… Well, they’re free.
The thing with this is that I don’t actually think that what Dutch Betting Suite does is any more sophisticated than what is currently available elsewhere. And whilst Winningmore aren’t charging a lot for access to the software, the fact remains that you are still paying for something that you can get a very similar product elsewhere for free. So, it isn’t worth it, surely?
Honestly though, I think that it is. And there is one main reason for this, which I the ability to save and recall previous bets. Here’s the thing. If you’re an average punter and you want to play about with Dutching, there are plenty of free options that will do what this does. And if you are only placing a few bets, it’s easy to keep things logged on a spreadsheet as you are doing them.
If on the other hand you take things a little more seriously, having that knowledge of your previous betting can be a very important tool. It means that you aren’t misrepresenting your betting results, something that it is very easy to do. This in turn stops you from falling into bad betting habits and sinking money into things that don’t necessarily work.
And all of that for the cost of a few pints? The fact of the matter is that sometimes, it is worth paying for something simply because it makes a process more efficient and that is what Dutch Betting Suite does. I mean, £2 a year is nothing. Even £4 a year is… Well, I’ve spent more on a cup of coffee than that before now.
So, as long as you are halfway to serious, Dutch Betting Suite is worth your consideration. However, I do want to add the caveat that this isn’t because it is necessarily inherently better than other options that are out there It is simply a case of making a process slightly more efficient.
