King of Accas is a new sports betting tipster service that is operated by George Wickerman. It claims to offer very good profits through simple football based tipping.
What does the product offer?
The headline for King of Accas claims that you can make the 2017/18 season your most profitable with the “King of Accas”. This self proclaimed title of course refers to tipster George Wickerman. Supposedly last season just shy of £20,000 was made with accumulators “and now you can follow his every bet!”. This is of course a very big claim to make. Of course, with the football season starting this weekend (at the time of writing), every man and his dog will be offering their unique take on how to profit. So is there anything that really makes King of Accas stand out?
According to George Wickerman, one of the key appeals of King of Accas is that you are only using small bets in order to get big pay outs. Furthermore, there is an inherently low risk, seemingly due to the “quality” of these selections (at least, this is what the strike rate appears to suggest). Naturally there isn’t a lot to really back this up, so with that in mind, let’s look at what we are actually getting with King of Accas.
In terms of what you are actually getting, King of Accas is a rather typical affair. The only thing that seems to be a little different is that selections aren’t a daily affair. Given the fact that this is a football based service however, this is to be expected due to the nature of football schedules. George Wickerman’s selections are issued to King of Accas subscribers and this is it.
As you would expect from a service called King of Accas, it concerns itself with accumulator bets. These look at a number of domestic leagues, starting at the Premier League and going down through the Championship to as low as League 2. There are also accumulators advised which will cover the Scottish League.
We can now take time to look at two of the factors which George Wickerman say are a pretty big part of King of Accas, both of which are numbers based. The first thing is the staking plan. George Wickerman recommends staking 3% of your betting bank on each accumulator bet. In order to achieve the claimed results, it appears that you are expected to not cash out any of your winnings from King of Accas.
What it interesting about this is that there aren’t any details of real stakes that were placed by George Wickerman last season. The only thing that we are given in terms of information is in the sales material for King of Accas. This is a simple and crude graph showing a steep upwards curve over time with axes that are nonsensically and simply not labelled.
The final thing to consider is the strike rate. It is interesting to me that George Wickerman is so quick to dismiss services that claim to have a high strike rate (he says that anyone “claiming to win 100% or even 80% of the time is lying to you and most likely trying to scam you too”). Of course with a strike rate of 46%, King of Accas doesn’t fall into that category at all, according to George Wickerman. It is also interesting to note that there is no proofing to back this claim up.
This is of course a pretty large serving of crap as far as I am concerned. For any accumulator service, a strike rate of almost 50% is exactly as preposterous as a straight win service claiming a strike rate of 80%. In fact, amongst genuine win tipster services, 46% would be considered a very good strike rate indeed. It is
How does the product work?
As well as having no real evidence to back up any of the claims made, it is interesting to note that George Wickerman makes no mention of what his selection process for King of Accas entails. Whilst I don’t expect any tipster to give away their system, I do feel that as a potential subscriber, you have a right to some insight. Truthfully, the only thing that we are ever told is that George Wickerman doesn’t have “inside info on match fixing or any BS like that either”.
What is the initial investment?
King of Accas is seemingly very reasonably priced at just £19 (plus VAT). This is however simply for 30 days of selections from George Wickerman. This would make sense if King of Accas were on a subscription, but it isn’t. This is another aspect of King of Accas that is seemingly rather questionable. There is also the fact that despite being sold through Clickbank (which comes with its own full 60 day money back guarantee), you are told that you have 30 days in order to claim a refund.
What is the rate of return?
As I have mentioned, George Wickerman claims that in the last season, he made almost £20,000 (the actual amount is £19,872). The season before that, £13,718. The clear implication here is that King of Accas will generate similar results this season however there is nothing to really back this up. When you consider that there is no proofing for previous seasons either, I feel like this implied number is very questionable.
When I was investigating King of Accas, I was rather surprised to see that the website appears to have been registered by George Wickerman. This is usually an indicator that you have a genuine product on your hands and is something that I welcome. Unfortunately, some deeper digging unveiled that this may not be entirely true.
The Clickbank user who is selling King of Accas has had a product before this one. This was not a tipster service. It wasn’t even vaguely related to betting. It was in fact a training course on how to use an iPad. The name that was attached to that service is also completely different from George Wickerman. All of this is rather concerning as far as I am concerned. It certainly doesn’t made King of Accas feel in any way like a genuine product.
Of course, all of this is very problematic. It would be ignorant to overlook these factors, however truthfully I think that even without digging this deep, it is clear that there is a lot that is questionable about King of Accas and George Wickerman’s claims. It is also important to note that despite the fact that he has supposedly been running King of Accas in some form or another for 2 seasons, there is no proofing or details made available. These are all very legitimate concerns.
What really compounds the fact that King of Accas may not be entirely genuine as far as I am concerned is the focus of the marketing on how much you can make. George Wickerman talks about holidays in Ibiza and Thailand. He talks about putting a down payment down on a brand new sports car. In spite of this, King of Accas makes no effort to talk about the service and what you can reasonably expect from it. This is a huge red flag for me.
With all of this in mind, I would give King of Accas a very wide berth if I were you. It seems to be very reasonably priced but with no evidence that it works, this doesn’t necessarily provide value for money. When you actually look at everything that is wrong with King of Accas and try to balance it out with what is demonstrably right, it is a complete no brainer. With all of this in mind, I would personally give King of Accas a pretty big miss.
