Lay Profit Hunter is a football tipster service being offered by Jim Nendel through Agora Lifestyles that claims to have an exceedingly high strike rate.
What does the product offer?
Lay Profit Hunter is an occasional football tipster service that according to creator Jim Nendel is able to create a consistent profit for users through his own specialist system. I say that Lay Profit Hunter is an occasional service as in 5 years of betting there were just less than 900 bets offered (between 2009 and 2013). This means that on average, Jim Nendel has identified one bet for every two days. As the name suggests Lay Profit Hunter is a lay betting system which means that you will require an account through a betting exchange. When you sign up to Lay Profit Hunter, Jim Nendel will send out an email to subscribers when a selection is available and there may also be text messages sent out for last minute calls. In terms of the numbers, there is no staking advice provided whatsoever with Jim Nendel saying that it is up to you. In terms of the strike rate, this is claimed to be an average of 84% which is just about believable for a lay betting service.
How does the product work?
There is no real information provided on the selection process (which doesn’t surprise me given the fact that Lay Profit Hunter is an Agora Lifestyles product). There is a vague reference from Jim Nendel to looking at statistics but this isn’t something that I would take as concrete for where selections come from.
What is the initial investment?
Agora Lifestyles are offering Lay Profit Hunter on a 30 day trial with no payment upfront. Once this as elapsed the service will cost you £97 which comes with a 60 day money back guarantee should you be unhappy with this. Subsequent years will come in at £147 each year.
What is the rate of return?
Jim Nendel does not make any claims about profit and even goes out of his way to distance himself from this notion. This is on the grounds that there everybody will be betting differently and he doesn’t wish to make any claims that people may not attain. On the other hand, Agora Lifestyles and Jim Nendel then go on to say that had you been following the service since it started you’d be thousands of pounds in profit from £10 level stakes.
There are the usual problems with Lay Profit Hunter that I have come to expect from Agora Lifestyles products, namely the costs involved which seem reasonable on the surface but remains a large amount to pay out. I also feel that the sales material for Lay Profit Hunter overlooks the losses that can be involved when lay betting goes wrong. This is exactly why proofing is a necessary thing for a tipster service.
Personally, I wouldn’t bother with Lay Profit Hunter, preferring a more transparent service however I can see where what can theoretically be 90 days of free selections can hold appeal, especially just trialling the service on paper.
