Jocks Jewels is a brand new to market horse racing tipster service which is operated by Jacob Edwards. He claims that his service is well positioned to produce some very substantial profits.
Introduction to Jocks Jewels
When I look at a tipster service, there is a lot that is involved. There is analysis of the results, of the service itself, and even the marketing. Because the truth of the matter is that anything that provides you with insight into a service is of value. That might sound like an incredibly obvious statement, but I can’t tell you how many times I’ve seen perfectly intelligent people overlook things that to me, are glaring red flags. All because they’ve gotten a bit bogged down in the profit potential of something.
This is important to keep in mind with today’s subject, Jocks Jewels. This is a service that claims “£184,000 In One Year from Betting!!”. Now I’ll hold my hands up. In and of itself, this is enough to grab my attention. I mean, that’s a decent sized house in most areas of the country paid for in cash. All from betting. It’s a hell of a lot of money. And I believe that it is no coincidence that Jacob Edwards not just leads with this number, but mentions variants of it every step of the way.
As you might have figured by this point, I am more than a touch cynical of this so far. Jocks Jewels might sound like a guaranteed winner, but let me tell you, there is a lot here that is very concerning. In actual fact, I feel like Jacob Edwards has left more red flags than a game of Minesweeper. As always, I fully aim to be objective with Jocks Jewels, but I also think that it’s an interesting opportunity to talk about some of the things in the marketing that show this isn’t quite as it seems. So, let’s jump into it.
What Does Jocks Jewels Offer?
This review is probably going to end up taking a bit of a different tone that normal, simply because of how I’m breaking things down. But that doesn’t mean that I want to switch things up too much. Firstly, lets look at what Jacob Edwards claims Jocks Jewels offers. “Daily emails and profits, guaranteed performance, established and well known, and very valuable information” are all claims that are directly made. I will be returning to these as the review progresses.
First things first, that statement of daily emails sets us up for how Jacob Edwards is managing Jocks Jewels. This is a daily horse racing tipster service, which, as is the norm these days, issues selections via email. A little later in the sales material, we are told that you simply have to “place bets” and “make money”. These emails are typically sent out on the morning before racing, however, it can be a little late in the day on occasion.
Where are you placing these bets? There is little advice on this. The fact is that really, Jacob Edwards pretty much leaves you on your own here. He seemingly places his bets with Betfair, but there isn’t a whole lot of advice. It is also something that I find to be somewhat questionable as the betting slips don’t look like the typical Betfair slips that I see. This is despite the fact that the “winnings” for his service are shown in a Betfair account.
Realistically, if you are going to follow Jocks Jewels then you probably want to be using an odds comparison site. This means that at the very least, you can ensure that you are getting the best possible results out of the service. The fact of the matter is that if you are going to follow Jacob Edwards’s bets, I don’t see you winning often. As such, you should at least be winning the most you possibly can when you do.
Now, let’s move on to the bets. Horse racing does, generally speaking, have very limited betting markets. You can back a horse to win, or you can back it each way (which includes a bet to place). Fortunately, there are still many chances to get value out of bets. Jocks Jewels focuses on horses being backed to win. This provides you with much better odds and lowers the stakes needed, but it does mean less chance of winning.
Whilst we’re on the topic of odds, let’s look at some of the bets that Jacob Edwards claims to have placed. These all show odds of between 7.00 and 8.00. Quite atypical results. However, it is very insightful to me that there are just 5 examples of these bets available. And all of them, despite being “recent winning bets” are all from November and December last year.
With that out of the way, let’s talk about just how much you should be betting with Jocks Jewels. The blunt fact of the matter is that I haven’t really seen any explicit advice on staking. However, that doesn’t stop Jacob Edwards from suggesting a level stakes affair. This is because all of the betting examples provided (no matter how few they may be) show stakes of £100. This suggests that you should be using a level staking plan of 1 point per bet.
Something incredibly important that is definitely overlooked though is the betting bank that you need. It is all well and good defining 1 point as a stake, but how many points do you need to sustain your betting bank? Personally, I’d be looking at around 150 for something like Jocks Jewels. That is, if I were to follow it. Honestly, you should expect long losing streaks here, even if that is contrary to the advice that Jacob Edwards provides.
Don’t misconstrue me, there isn’t an explicit statement of how often you will win. But let’s return to that initial offering for a minute. “Guaranteed performance”. I don’t think it’s unreasonable to look at those profits and that statement and reach a conclusion that you will be winning frequently. However, looking at those winning betting slips, we also see just 5 winning bets in a shade over 3 weeks. Which I think is rather telling.
How Does Jocks Jewels Work?
Now we come to how Jocks Jewels works, and it gives me a chance to highlight another red flag for me. Generally speaking, genuine tipsters will tell you about their betting system to some degree. They may even just talk about the sport that they are betting on in a way that shows that they are knowledgeable. Jacob Edwards doesn’t really do any of this. Instead, there is a strong focus on narrative.
Here, we are told how he was a maths whiJacob Edwards from being a young age. How he went to university with the intention of becoming an accountant, before becoming jaded with the idea. Despite being “the top of all of [his] classes”, Jacob Edwards decided that he w as going to stop his pursuit of becoming an accountant and “opened [his] eyes and to look at what was around [him]”.
We are told that he ended up on horse racing because his father had always loved the sport and Jacob Edwards had memories of “darting down to the local bookmaker to place his bets”. We are then told that between the race meetings, multiple horses and “plenty of opportunities to win”, he spotted the numbers that he knows so well and his natural strength. So, he turned to horse racing and simply developed a betting system.
I don’t feel like you have to be particularly astute to realise that this doesn’t actually tell you anything really. There is a vague allusion that Jocks Jewels is based on mathematics, but that doesn’t actually tell you anything of use. Combine this with evidence in the shape of a huge number highly questionable screenshots, and Jocks Jewels doesn’t do a great job of selling its legitimacy in my opinion.
What is the Initial Investment?
If you want to sign up to Jocks Jewels, there is only one option that is available. This is a one time cost of £39.99 (plus VAT) for which you seemingly get access to Jacob Edwards’s selections for life. A cost that is there only “towards the cost of my staff sending out my information to you”. This is, in my eyes, demonstrably questionable. Because all of these kinds of service simply use mailing lists.
Of note is the fact that Jocks Jewels does come with a full 30 day money back guarantee. And, to be fair to Jacob Edwards, he actually mentions this prominently in the sales material. Furthermore, it is backed up by the fact it is being sold via Clickbank who aren’t terrible at backing this up.
What is the Rate of Return?
Now we come to the profit and that headlining figure. £184,000 in a single year. If you look a the betting bank in the screenshot for Jocks Jewels however, we see $1,091.58. A drastically different number, and even currency. Meanwhile, there are “testimonials” that reference £2,000 per week (all of which feature the same stock looking image of the same person. Jacob Edwards also talks about making more than £10,000 in a month, as well as earning £100,000 a year.
The numbers here are all over the place. They are also exceedingly high. Using the £100 stakes that are shown in the proofing, we are expected to believe that Jacob Edwards is hitting anywhere from 1,000 points of profit per year, all the way up to 1,840 points per year. All depending on which of the highly questionable results you are looking at.
That lower estimate is in line with what you’d expect a tipster to make in around 5 years, whilst there are other tipsters who would be happy to take home that top figure in a decade. All of which Jacob Edwards is claiming is achievable with 5 wins at 7-8 point profits in a 3 week period. If mathematics is as important as claimed, you’ll see that this just doesn’t add up.
Conclusion for Jocks Jewels
By this point, I feel like I have more than adequately poked holes in Jocks Jewels. And honestly, it has hardly been difficult. But it can be very easy to get caught up in the claims that are made and what they might mean for you. Especially when Jacob Edwards is talking about clearing your bills and talking about buying a home, sports car, and showing off pictures of mansions and tropical beaches.
What is really concerning though, aside from the obvious things I have talked about so far, is a comment in one of the “testimonials”. Here, “Stephen Prince” says “Landing £2,000 a week is a great feeling and I can only thank Eddie and The One Pound Method for what he has done for me”. A service that was supposedly operated by “Edward Jacobs”. See what they did there?
There is also a hell of a lot of overlap with that One Pound Method as well, including the narrative of a master accountant going through University, 5 bets over 3 weeks being the “proofing”, and even back then, there were the same issues with the wrong name and the wrong service being used in testimonials. It’s lazy, it’s sloppy, and it’s incredibly indicative of why this isn’t really a viable option as a tipster service in my opinion.
Because not surprisingly at all, I just can’t being myself to recommend this. Nothing adds up at all. The few bits of information and insight that we get are… Highly questionable. And what I think Jocks Jewels really comes down to is taking Jacob Edwards’s word that this is all above board. Now, I don’t generally recommend taking this on board, especially when they are the sole person who stand to profit from your purchase.
But when you also factor in that you are being asked to do this in the face of overwhelming evidence to the contrary… That just isn’t a smart decision. Truth be told, I called out One Pound Method for being questionable only last month, and here we are reviewing yet another product that ties in with that. In my mind, there is just nothing of real value here.
