Jolly Lock Betscape is a product which has been created by the mathematician for Jolly Lock, Steve Goodings. It has supposedly been a very long time in development and the suggestion is that there are huge profits to be made.
What does Jolly Lock Betscape offer?
For those who aren’t familiar with the company, Jolly Lock burst onto the scene with a highly specialised VPN which was designed almost from the ground up to work for matched betting. It did this in a number of clever ways, but it would seem that the team now believe that they are well positioned to launch their own betting service. On the surface of things, why not?
They are already uniquely placed in the market and if you care enough about betting to make the core Jolly Lock product, it makes sense that you can provide a profitable service as well. The problem with things working well on paper is that this doesn’t always translate to real life. Does this apply to Jolly Lock Betscape as well? Let’s get into the details and have a look.
First things first, I want to talk about what exactly Jolly Lock Betscape is, and this is no small feat if I am honest. Essentially, you are signing up for a piece of software. This software is able to provide subscribers with value bets as and when they arise. Nicely bringing me into point one about Jolly Lock Betscape.
The software literally updates itself by the hour, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. If there is value to be found in a race, Jolly Lock essentially suggest that this service will identify them.
The idea here is that you can then choose which of Jolly Lock Betscape’s bets you want to follow. Truth be told, there is not a whole lot of guidance in this regard and there is a strong focus on independent betting. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing however as it will allow you to bet where is best for you (there is little more frustrating that being unable to place a bet with a recommended bookmaker when following a tipster service).
This of course includes bookmakers and betting exchanges.
In terms of the staking plan for Jolly Lock Betscape, there are two different options. The first of these is to bet to level stakes and this is fine in theory. If you are using a Jolly Lock product however, there is the option to get Steve Goodings help with creating a specialised staking plan.
This will depend on how much you have to invest, what you want to do with your money etc. and frankly, it is very personalised. This is something that is unique to Jolly Lock Betscape however and I haven’t seen anything like it on offer before now.
As impressive as all of this is, I think that it is fair to say that if Jolly Lock Betscape isn’t winning, then it is fundamentally for nothing. Unfortunately, as it currently stands, the strike rate for Jolly Lock Betscape is around 20% which is a pretty paltry figure given the high volume of bets that are involved.
How does Jolly Lock Betscape work?
I have touched on the fact that Jolly Lock Betscape involves identifying value and that is about all that I could tell you. Steve Goodings has supposedly been developing the concept behind the software for 8 years which is a phenomenal length of time. One of the problems that I always have is that services rarely provide any information on their selection criteria and Jolly Lock Betscape is no different.
Unfortunately, give the results to date, I would at least like to know that when the team tell us that results are unexpected and should be better in the future, there is some credence to this rather than blind belief.
What is the initial investment?
At the time of writing, you can sign up for Jolly Lock Betscape entirely free. This runs for 3 weeks and provides you with full access to the software. Once this period of time has elapsed, the costs escalate up to £50 per month. There are no other subscriptions available and it will likely come as no surprise to learn that there is no money back guarantee in place for the service. To be fair to Jolly Lock however, this is standard for the betting industry.
What is the rate of return?
There is no nice way of putting this, but the results for Jolly Lock Betscape are not great. There have been some strong points over the course of the service however the more immediate results are very disappointing. To put it into context, March and April produced profits of 80 points to BOG, however I don’t doubt that the recent form will have made a significant dent in this.
Conclusion on Jolly Lock Betscape?
Even the team behind Jolly Lock Betscape acknowledge that at the moment, the service is in a little bit of a rut. Honestly though, this seems like a little bit of an understatement from the results I have seen so far. What all of this raises for me is a very interesting question about long term sustainability. First things first for this kind of product, the results have been historically good. This is important to keep in mind as it means that there is a lot of potential for this form to return.
I want to be very blunt about Jolly Lock Betscape because I can see this potential everywhere. In order to get the most out of the service, you have to be willing to bet a lot. You also need to be willing and able to place bets as they come in which is on an hourly basis. At the moment, this does mean being at your computer although I am led to believe that there is a phone app in place.
Once Jolly Lock Betscape becomes more mobile, I think it is fair to say following it will be easier and this will count a lot in the team’s favour in the long run.
One of the larger problems with Jolly Lock Betscape is that it is a high volume system. Now this in and of itself isn’t a bad thing, but it does tend to amplify results. A strike rate of 25% (to pull a number out of a hat) seems a lot worse when it is 75 losing bets to 25 winners rather than 7.5 losses.
This is just a part of being human though. On the flip side of this though, if you were to get 75 winners, well the profit margin would be much much higher. The volume also means that you have to be disciplined and frankly, deep pockets won’t hurt either.
For my money, and to be fair to the Jolly Lock team, they appear to be in agreement, right now is not the time to get excited about the service. In the long term though, I can see there being potential for profit (possibly).
The thing is, at the time of writing there is still that 3 week trial period in place. I wouldn’t recommend more than betting on paper but when the turnaround in results come I do think that there will be profit to be had. With all of this in mind, Jolly Lock Betscape is one to watch at the moment, but in the future I hope to see great things.
