Received an email regarding some of the screenshots I have posted as they don’t show the usual Betfair Screen and actually show the screen from a piece of Betfair Trading Software called Bet Angel. This is because I rarely use the Betfair website for any of my trading and do it all with the software.
I have been using Bet Angel almost as soon as I discovered trading on Betfair so I just assumed everyone else knew about it which doesn’t actually seem to be the case. I thought I would give a short review of Bet Angel for those who are planning to take their trading to the next step.
Do remember I am talking about Bet Angel Professional which is the paid version, you can easily download Bet Angel Basic for a quick tester but it simply doesn’t compare to the full software.
Firstly, I literally can’t imagine trading without it. I tend to trade Football and I like to scalp the under 2.5 markets and that simply wouldn’t be possible without Bet Angel and its one click automated back and lay functions. If you’re planning to trade or learn to trade the horse racing markets then you simply need to use some sort of Betfair Trading software and Bet Angel would be the one I recommend.
Do not even attempt to trade horse racing without Bet Angel as you will be eaten alive by the professionals who are using software just like this to get an edge on you.
Despite using Bet Angel for just over 2 years now and I still seem to learn something new with it everyday. I originally just got it to try the one click betting and greening up functions therefore you don’t have to mess around with the Betfair interface trying to even out a profit. You simply click the button and you can instantly green up (or red up in some cases!). Also the refresh rate is really increased all the way up to 200 milliseconds which is quite amazing the first time you see it happen as you realise just how much money is flowing through Betfair so quickly. Therefore, you will be seeing prices quicker then the average Betfair punter which will allow you to take the best price and gain some precious value.
I also like the fact that you can set a stop loss so that Bet Angel will exit the trade for you if it goes wrong, this helps many people maintain their discipline and their bank balances too!
The possibilities are endless from one click betting, bookmaking, dutching, automation and excel integration. It is possible to simply devise a trading system, adjust the settings on Bet Angel and it will automatically trade for you. This is something that has been discussed at length in the Bet Angel forum which is only accessible by those who own Bet Angel.
If you want to take you’re Betfair trading seriously you really need to invest in Bet Angel. Try the basic version first but the paid version really is where it’s all at.
