Jakblak Racing is a horse racing tipster service which is being offered through the Tipsters Empire stable of tipsters. It appears to offer some very consistent growth in the long term as well as some features which make it rather standout.
Introduction to Jakblak Racing
It isn’t very often that I see a tipster service which really looks to bring anything new to the table, and Jakblak Racing doesn’t do this. What it does seem to do though is perform very well as a tipster service and whilst this might seem like a really obvious approach, it is rarely done well.
Honestly, there is a lot to say about this so I don’t want to dwell too much here, but I will say that Tipsters Empire are definitely offering one of the more interesting services I think that I have looked at for some time. With this in mind, let’s have a good look at Jakblak Racing and see whether or not it can deliver on this initial promise.
What Does Jakblak Racing Offer?
One of the things that immediately stands out at me about Jakblak Racing is that there aren’t any gimmicks here. The closest thing to a “gimmick” with the service is how Tipsters Empire send out selections for the service. Rather than directly emailing, you will receive a text message each day which links you to a special member’s area.
From here, you can access the selections including links to allow you to quickly place bets. This is something new, but I like the idea that you aren’t getting emails lost in an inbox (something which can happen if you are getting hundreds of emails a day, which I do). On a final note, Jakblak Racing selections are typically made available the evening before racing, usually about 9pm.
This straight forward approach applies to a number of elements as well. The bets that are advised through Jakblak Racing have all been straight win bets according to Tipsters Empire’s historic proofing (as well as what I have seen as well). There is a mention of each way bets in said proofing, however these seem to be a very rare thing.
Naturally there are a range of odds involved with Jakblak Racing. This is a value based service and as such, you can expect bets going from 2/1 all the way up to 100/1. Finally, I want to touch on the volume of bets. According to Tipsters Empire, you will receive just a few bets per day making for a very easy to manage service.
There is a staking plan in place for Jakblak Racing and it is actually a very sensible one which should manage risk, whilst allowing you to increase your profit quite nicely. Effectively, all bets are backed to level stakes of 1 point per bet, however this isn’t the only element here.
Tipsters Empire say that once your betting bank has increased by 50%, you increase your bets by 50% as well. It is worth noting that these numbers are base on the recommended betting bank for Jakblak Racing which is 150 points (meaning when you have made 75 points of profit, you should up your stakes). There is a bit more to this that is covered in the member’s area, but I won’t divulge this information here.
Finally, I want to discuss the strike rate for Jakblak Racing. This stands at just 15.9% which you could be forgiven for thinking is a pretty low number however when you look at the odds that are involved, I don’t think that it’s too bad a thing in the grand scheme of things. This doesn’t present the full picture though and I think it is important to highlight the fact that there are going to be losing streaks when it comes to Jakblak Racing and these can be significant.
How Does Jakblak Racing Work?
The tipster behind Jakblak Racing says that he has been interested in horse racing for “as long as [he] can remember”. Since 2003 though, he says that he has been looking at racing differently (meaning a decent 15 years plus of experience). There is a little bit of insight provide here with talk of looking at statistical trends for festivals, and of course, looking at value.
This might not sound like a huge amount of information however this insight into a broader approach isn’t too much of a concern and that is because of arguably the biggest highlight of Jakblak Racing.
The tipster behind the service provides full detail of why a selection has been given. This means full details on why a horse has been selected. Tipsters Empire provide this information when you view your tips for Jakblak Racing and whilst it isn’t necessary to read this, I would strongly recommend it.
What is the Initial Investment?
There are a massive range of options that are available if you want to subscribe to Jakblak Racing. Tipsters Empire start by offering you a 28 day trial (only for new customers) which is priced at £2.99. After this there are monthly, three monthly, six monthly, and twelve monthly packages. As you would expect, the longer you sign up for, the better the value. The pricing for these are detailed below:
- Monthly Option – £34.99
- Three Monthly Option – £87.50 (a 16.7% discount)
- Six Monthly Option – £157.50 (a 25% discount)
- Twelve Monthly Option – £279.99 (a 33% discount)
It is important to note that these options do not automatically renew. It is also of note that Tipsters Empire only offer a limited refund policy. This involves a case by case approach to requests with refunds typically adjusted depending on how long you have used the service for etc.
What is the Rate of Return?
Jakblak Racing has been proofed through Tipsters Empire since mid June which means it is fast approaching a year of proofing. In this time, you will have seen a points profit of 152.59 points. This doesn’t sound like a particularly strong number and I can see an argument to be made that to some degree, it isn’t.
What stands out to me about Jakblak Racing though are two things. One is that whilst there have been a number of losing months, they have been relatively insignificant and the service has always ended up making more than the month before a loss in profit. Secondly is the ROI which stands at a very strong 28.12%, a figure that is very impressive given the length of time that Jakblak Racing has been running.
Conclusion on Jakblak Racing
I have two very conflicting trains of thoughts when it comes to Jakblak Racing, so you will bear with me if I try to straighten these out over the course of this conclusion.
First things first, I want to talk about the positives, namely that is the way that the tipster behind the service operates. I am a strong proponent of receiving full insight into the selection process. For a tipster to break down bet by bet why tips have been selected on a case by case basis is phenomenal and I would love to see more of this.
Building on this, I don’t think that there is necessarily anything that Jakblak Racing really does wrong from everything that I have seen. Tipsters Empire are a professional stable of tipsters and this means that there is consistency and peace of mind in my opinion. I even opened this review by talking about how there have been consistent long term results. And it is these results that actually come down a bit on Jakblak Racing in my opinion.
The bottom line of any tipster service is how much money you can bring home at the day. This is an area where I don’t think it would re unreasonable to say that Jakblak Racing is potentially lacking. 152.59 points in almost a year just isn’t a significant amount compared to some other tipster services that are out there.
There is redemption in a very solid ROI, but this only really works in your favour if you are investing a decent chunk of money, something I know not everybody can do.
With all of this in mind, I have decided that I quite like Jakblak Racing.
There are definitely some areas that concern me, however ultimately, this can be managed, so long as you keep a long term approach to betting. I think that Tipsters Empire are asking a fair price which puts the value for money beyond question. All of these things are positives. Sure, there remains that little niggle about profit, but if you look at the ROI as opposed to the points profit, you will do well.
