Trio Tipster Review

Trio Tipster is a brand new horse racing tipster service which is being offered by eponymous trio of tipsters, Peter, Sam, and Nick. They claim that their lay betting approach can produce a substantial profit for subscribers.

Introduction to Trio Tipster

It seems to me that lay betting has enjoyed a bit of a surge in recent times. Once upon a time, you couldn’t move for the things, and then, there was nothing. In the last month though, I have looked at a lot of different services, each of which claims to be your next profitable betting service.

Naturally, this includes Trio Tipster. in fact, Peter, Sam, and Nick are so certain that they headline their sales page with the following statement “Attention: Be the ultimate laying champion with invincible tips from the terrific trio”. This is one hell of a claim to make, as is their statement immediately after that you can make “HUNDREDS OF POUNDS – EVERY SINGLE DAY…”

trio-tipster-review-imageHonestly, I would love nothing more than to get to the end of this review significantly wealthier as a result of following Peter, Sam, and Nick’s advice. Unfortunately, I’m not quite convinced that this is going to be the case. None the less, let’s have a look at Trio Tipster and see if it is the lay betting service that has been missing from your betting portfolio.

What Does Trio Tipster Offer?

Peter, Sam, and Nick talk quite a lot about what you can expect from Trio Tipster and it makes for some interesting reading. A lot of it is quit straight forward stuff, such as the fact that the service focuses on UK races for both Flat and National Hunt. As such, this is a year round affair. They also talk quite a lot about what you can expect logistically.

There is nothing ground breaking going on here, but that shouldn’t come as a surprise. Nor is it an inherently had thing. Peter, Sam, and Nick say that they will send out selections 7 days a week, directly to subscribers via email. All that you have to is ensure that you have a betting account in place with which you can place bets.

Of course, Trio Tipster is a lay betting service which means a betting exchange. Betfair and Betdaq are both mentioned in the sales material. I would personally lean more towards Betfair as more users mean more liquidity in the markets. With that said, there are alternatives that charge less commission that should work as well.

Now, lay betting becomes a very interesting proposition when compared to backing horses to win as odds become much more important in my opinion. Ultimately, they aren’t dictating how much you will win, but what your potential liability may be, and if you are backing horses at longer odds, that can be significant.

Unfortunately, Peter, Sam, and Nick don’t talk about the odds that they lay against. From what I have seen, it is a bit of a mixed affair, however there are enough long odds horses in there that I am a little concerned about what happens if said horse happens to win, a point that I will pick up in more detail later.

Naturally, there is no proofing provided that you can consult with which is a massive disappointment. Trio Tipster is supposedly a professional affair and this kind of thing is basic for any half way to reputable tipster service on the market.

In spite of this, we are told some things about betting patterns. Almost every day, you will receive three bets. One each from Peter, Sam, and Nick. We are however told “there may be the occasional day where we cannot find a suitable money making opportunity, On such days, You will be notified via email well in advance of the days races!”.

All of this seems to be pretty manageable on paper. Especially when you factor in that Trio Tipster is a lay betting service. As such, this means that you will only ever be staking a flat amount on bets (although as touched upon, your liabilities may end up being substantially more).  

In theory though, none of this should really be a problem for you. Peter, Sam, and Nick claim that Trio Tipster has a strike rate of “85%+ every month”. We are also told later in the sales material that there is a “near 100% success rate”. This is then qualified as supposedly being over 95%.

This is not a marginal jump in my opinion, and with nothing to back these claims up, it becomes a real cause for concern. It almost seems like a copywriter has decided to up the numbers to read better as they’ve developed as sales pitch rather than a genuine tipster stating their results.

The bigger problem with these claims though, is that using the figure of 85% (a minimum, remember), we should see no more than 15 or 16 bets losing each month (presuming a 30 day month with 3 bets per day). That sounds reasonable, but actually, that margin of error is potentially significant enough to seriously mess with your betting bank.

How Does Trio Tipster Work?

One of the many things that I find to be particularly concerning when it comes to Trio Tipster is that whilst we are provided with a reasonable amount of information about how Peter, Sam, and Nick find their selections, there is very little of it that I would consider to be either tangible, or backed up by evidence.

The team say that they have access to a network of “well developed informants and contacts”. This isn’t built upon and I find it rather difficult to put blind faith in claims of this nature. We are also told that Peter, Sam, and Nick “work tirelessly” looking at data like form, the prevailing weather, and the race course.

They also talking about looking at other factors such as the jockeys, breeders, and trainers (presumably tying in somewhere with those entirely unsubstantiated network of informants). This all sounds well and good, however it means about as much as their claim that the three of them share the ability to spot value where others can’t.

There are so many other statements in a similar vein. They are able to see “the bigger picture in horse racing”. They are “wise to the tricks that bookies play”. They also spend a lot of time talking about value and how horses can be mispriced (quoting a worrying hypothetical of a horse with a “real chance” of 50/1, being priced at 10/1. I’ll talk about this a little later).  

Trio Tipster is full of this kind of empty marketing speech which probably sounds pretty good if you don’t look too hard at it. In my line of work though, these kinds of empty promises and blanket statements need to be scrutinised because more often than not, there is no substance behind them, something which seems to be exactly the case with Peter, Sam, and Nick.

What is the Initial Investment?

At the time of writing, Peter, Sam, and Nick are offering a very generous (and supposedly limited time) discount of 94% on Trio Tipster. This brings the cost down to just £29 which is a one time payment in exchange for 12 months of selections. I don’t believe the limited time offer however, as the 9 hour countdown seems to refresh every time I’ve visited the relevant page.

It is worth noting that Trio Tipster is being sold through Clickbank which means that there is a full 30 day money back guarantee in place should you find that the service isn’t for you.

What is the Rate of Return?

Peter, Sam, and Nick claim that starting with a £1,000 betting bank, they have managed to achieve profits of £32,915.46 over 36 months. The interesting implication is that each of them has achieved this, and that had you been following the advice of all 3 tipsters, you are actually much closer to £100,000.

It should be noted that there is nothing that states whether or not these numbers have included compounding on their winnings. Nor do they discuss what the starting stakes were. All of this casts some doubt on the results in my opinion, and not unreasonably.

Conclusion for Trio Tipster

Like so many products that I look at, Trio Tipster looks like a great offering. Putting aside any sense of being realistic for a second, you have a group of guys here who are talking some very impressive talk. Based off the results, they also apparently walk a good walk, what with a 95% strike rate and a very attractive 5 figure income.

But that is taking everything that Peter, Sam, and Nick say on face value and I see little reason to really do this. If you look at the claims that they make, they are very impressive sounding. But I could write here that I personally make £50,000 a year through betting, throw in some images taken from online that show “me” at a race track, and ask you for £50 to receive my tips. Wouldn’t make it real though.

The problem that I really have is that there is nothing backing any of these claims up. There is no evidence, there is no nothing, there is zilch. Which is exactly the point that I was just trying to drive home.

Even when you look at the few things that they say which might have some kind of tangibility, they are, at least in my opinion, vague and quite obtuse really. Simply stating that you have a network of informants means very little, if we’re entirely honest. It is the kind of claim that anybody can make without a need to produce anything to back it up.

The same thing is somewhat applicable to the approach that Peter, Sam, and Nick take when it comes to their statements about seeing things that others don’t. About how the bookies get things so incredibly wrong. It is all very appealing in theory. But what backs this up?

Some of these things are admittedly a bit… fanciful, but even when you start to look at the cold hard numbers, things just don’t add up. The way the strike rate creeps up over the sales material is concerning to me. Numbers are solid. Put simply, they shouldn’t change, and yet, they do. Quite substantially. Of course, there is no proofing that is provided to back these numbers up either.

Staying on the numbers, the claimed income comes with no real context. Peter, Sam, and Nick claim to have made some £33,000 each. But they don’t talk about how much they have actually invested to make this kind of money. One again when it comes to the numbers side of things, Trio Tipster is just a bit sketchy. And if there is one thing that numbers can’t afford to be, it’s sketchy.

All of this just cries out questionable to me. About the best thing that you can say about Trio Tipster is that it isn’t particularly expensive, but I have said a number of times before now, if you aren’t paying a lot for crap, you are still paying for crap.

With this in mind, I just don’t see how I can recommend Trio Tipster. The whole thing just doesn’t seem like it is a genuine tipster service, and more than anything else, that is a huge part of what is important. This is one that is well worth avoiding in my opinion.
