Going for the Zappot Review

Going for the Zappot is a very interesting take on a horse racing tipster service operated by Jack Davis in conjunction with the Betfan group. It provides a very unique type of selection to subscribers.

What does the product offer?

The premise behind Going for the Zappot is an entirely new one to the best of my knowledge and I am unsure whether or not it is a good thing if I am honest. The headlines sum up what Going for the Zappot is all about to a large degree referring to it as “A Fun New Way To Play The Horse Racing Game!”. For once, I can’t really argue with the Betfan group in their approach to marketing with Going for the Zappot as this pretty much hits the nail on the head.

Truth be told, something new is not always necessarily something good and this is where there are definitely questions surrounding Going for the Zappot. I will go into as much detail as I can in this review, however I can say one thing now that those who are looking for a more traditional tipster experience. You can comfortably save yourself the time and effort and stop reading here because Going for the Zappot won’t be for you.

With that out of the way, what are you actually getting? Going for the Zappot is technically a daily horse racing tipster service however this is about all that it has in common with your usual fare. Each email contains a list of horses which you are supposed to back as an accumulator. How many horses you choose to back is ultimately up to you however Jack Davis strongly recommends backing larger numbers of horses (there are typically around 7 selections per day however this isn’t set in stone).

Staking wise it isn’t recommended that you stake more than around £1 on a given bet. This is in no small part due to how Going for the Zappot works (something that I will get to shortly) as there will be frequent and considerable losing streaks. Given the nature of Going for the Zappot however you will only need one win to be in substantial profit.

Having talked about the losing streaks that Jack Davis strongly implies you can expect with Going for the Zappot, I want to take a little bit of time in order to talk about the strike rate or the lack thereof. Put simply, there are no figures claimed or published in this regard. Nor is there any proofing however I will let that go in the case of Going for the Zappot as I don’t see it as being required reading as it were, furthermore, it has no real relevance to how the service works.

How does the product work?

I have been dodging around a number of things that I would usually consider to be critically important to reviewing a service on the grounds of how Going for the Zappot works. I am also aware that I haven’t talked too much about this subject. Put very bluntly, Jack Davis and Betfan are selling the service as an alternative to playing the lottery.

At first this sounds a little bit crazy however the more I have thought about it, the more Going for the Zappot makes sense. I have already talked about the number of horses that Jack Davis tips and the fact that these are supposed to be backed as an accumulator. What I haven’t talked about is the odds that can be achieved. On a sample bet a 1 point accumulator on 5 horses would produce 2,400 points of profit. If all seven came in and you had 1 point on all seven, you would be looking at 448,000 points.

The selections themselves aren’t entirely random either. Jack Davis claims to have operated a tipster service before. He also says that he has decades of experience under his belt and the resources to manage Going for the Zappot.

What is the initial investment?

Given the nature of Going for the Zappot it was always more likely to be cheap than not. What is surprising however is just how cheap it is. Betfan and Jack Davis are asking just £5 per month for access to Going for the Zappot or alternatively, you can sign up for the whole year for just £30. Naturally as a Betfan product  there is no real money back guarantee in place with either of these options.

That having been said, the team say that they monitor refund requests and where they feel it is merited, they may look to provide this.

What is the rate of return?

The income potential for Going for the Zappot is staggering however it has to be emphasised that there is going to be more potential than income. The fact that Going for the Zappot is designed as an alterative to a lottery should tell you everything in this regard. None the less ,a look over the odds that have been backed show that just one winning bet could easily generate a life changing sum of money.


I will make no effort to hide the fact that I rather like Going for the Zappot as a service. It is definitely different to everything else that is currently on the market and this definitely isn’t a bad thing. The fact of the matter is that there are very few products that even attempt new and there are even less that would go in the same direction as Going for the Zappot. This has made reviewing Going for the Zappot somewhat difficult as there is no real comparable service available.

What is clear to me however is that if you want a fun and interesting way of betting on horses then Going for the Zappot is definitely for you. The methods are definitely unique however I believe that there is some merit so long as you don’t mind bank rolling Going for the Zappot at a pound a go. Furthermore, it represents fantastic value for money at just £30 for a year. All it takes is one decent accumulator to come in and you are well in profit for the foreseeable future.

I am happy to accept that Going for the Zappot isn’t going to be for everybody, however I also feel like you will know whether or not this is for you. As far as I am concerned, Jack Davis and Betfan have set out to create an alternative to playing the lottery. In this regard, I can only view Going for the Zappot as a success which combined with a low price and investment makes this a service that I definitely recommend to those who want something a bit different.
