Profit Squirrel Review 2018
I’m someone who likes value for money. Whether it’s shopping on the high street, eating at a restaurant or even Matched Betting, I’m always conscious to make sure the price tag reflects the service/product offered. As many may already know, I used the wonder of matched betting to fund my way through university and have taken it upon myself to shout it from the roof tops. You think that all those promises you read of £1,000 plus per month are to good to be true. Within this Profit Squirrel Review read about exactly how it’s done.
Let's break this post down...
Benefits of Matched Betting Software
Matched betting uses mathematical formulas to guarantee that no matter what the outcome you’ll be able to extract free bets from online bookmakers. If undertaken correctly there is no risk. However where ever there’s humans involved there’s always a risk of human error. This is why it’s so important to sign up to either a free or ‘paid for’ matched betting software platform.
Now it can be a minefield selecting the right platform and there are plenty of dishonest people out there looking to make a quick buck so I’ve taken the time to review a significant amount of products to sift the wheat from the chaff.
Profit Squirrel Review
On the surface Profit Squirrel looks like almost any other matched betting service provider. The landing page has some interesting videos. There are the standard Coral sign up bonuses. Is it me or does this look like a carbon copy of a number of other provides out there?
It’s not when you get to the price at £24.99 that you release there really is something funny going on here. Three of the best providers in the market charge £15 (Oddsmonkey), £14 (Matchedbets) and £17.99 (Profit Accumulator). Let’s hope they’ve developed something that’s going to drive profit by 66% (difference between Oddsmonkey and Profit Squirrel) otherwise you’re simply not getting value for money.
What’s more Profit Squirrel doesn’t even provide a free trial. If you’re interest in full service software with free trials I’d recommend reading:
If you’re still interested in the Profit Squirrel software read on to find out why I only gave it 2 out of 5 stars.
Update 16/01/2018: News just in. Profit Squirrel have introduced a free plan which you can access using this link. The free version includes a step by step guide to the Coral sign up bonus which will provide £20 in free bets. From this you should hope to take home £15-£17 profit. This is less lucrative than the Oddsmonkey free trial which would provide somewhere in the region of £35 – £40 in free bets
Profit Squirrel Platform Review
Paying £24.99 to test the software pained me somewhat, but I went ahead anyway. Profit Squirrel has spent a significant amount on advertising over the last 12 months on the likes of Facebook. This may be one reason why they’ve been able to charge in excess of market fees because the vast majority have been drawn in by the marketing hype.
Now drilling down into the platform. What do you get for your buck? Well like most platform’s the Profit Squirrel product focuses on free sign up bonuses. Each sign up bonus has easy to follow step by step instructions of how to redeem the bet.
At this point you’ll need to take a trip over to the Matching page. Whilst the software does indeed offer bet matching services, similar offerings can be found for a fraction of the price online. You’ll then need to take the data from the matching page and manually enter it into the calculator. Note that the cheaper alternatives do this for you automatically. Watch the video on Profit Squirrels website to see exactly what I’m talking about.
By this point, I’ve opened three separate pages and haven’t even made my way to either the bookmaker or the betting exchange. With all of this manual input required there’s a higher chance of human error – something we’re trying to avoid at all costs!
The platform incorporates a handy profit tracker. When I started matched betting at university nearly 10 years ago I had to create my own bespoke excel model to undertake this. It’s great that these now come as standard on all of the matched betting platforms.
The second plus is the money back guarantee. If you don’t make a profit from the tutorials, they’ll give you your money back plus £100 cash. Now that does seem like a win/win scenario. Note that you could signup to the Oddsmonkey free service and make nearly £45 before you have to spend a penny on subscription costs.
It’s difficult to compare the likes of Oddsmonkey, Matchedbets or Profit Accumulator with the Profit Squirrel product. At well over 50% more expensive than the three and offering less than half the functionality (in Thrifty Point’s opinion) Profit Squirrel is unfortunately in the second division when it comes to Matched Betting Software.
You can try the free trials for all three software’s below (and FYI they’re ranked in my order of preference!):
Customer Reviews – Don’t just believe what I say…
Unfortunately, from the looks of it I’m not the only one who thinks along these lines:
Profit Squirrel Review Summary
The company appears to have spent a considerable amount on marketing to those who may not have heard or ever thought of Matched Betting before. As such they’ve been able to charge high fees for a substandard service. Whilst I do not doubt you’ll be able to make profit with Profit Squirrel software I truly feel that the additional layers of manual inputting will result in loss for the end user (i.e you and me). Having made well over £10,000 with matched betting I strongly believe that having the best available software is vital to your matched betting career success.
As always I hope you’ve found this Profit Squirrel review useful.
