What is a Tipster?

A Tipster is a person that offers information to be used for sports betting purposes.

top

What is Tip Exchange?

Tip Exchange is a community of Tipsters that allows users to buy and sell sporting information online. To sell information, a Tipster would open an account with Tip Exchange. They would then be able to upload their tips to their account before 11am on the day of the event. Users can then search through all the Tipsters using the criteria they feel important and then choose to add the service they feel suits them best to their portfolio. The tips are provided to the subscriber in the form of emails, RSS and via their portfolio. Once the tips have been published, the Tipster is unable to modify them, therefore protecting the integrity of their service.

Why Subscribe to a Tip Exchange Tipster

Many of us have used Tipsters in the past with varying degrees of success. One of the big problems is trusting the integrity of their claims. Tip Exchange solves this problem by preventing Tipsters from modifying their information after the tips have been published. Therefore you can trust the past results of these Tipsters. The Tipsters are listed in a league table based on their profits or any criteria you feel are important. Each Tipster is subject to the same rules for calculating profits. Profit is calculated at sensible and realistic prices including commissions where necessary and every single tip is included in their results. Subscription to a Tipster is on a monthly basis only and is not recurring, so you will not be charged if you do not want to continue your subscription.

How to find a Tipster


Tip Exchange has many sports Tipsters. So which should you add to your portfolio?
Well fear not. We record every tip entered by each Tipster, check its result, calculate the profits and tabulate the results.

Every day we create a table of Elite Tipsters from all sports and display this table on our home page.

We also create five further sport specific tables on a daily basis, to help you search for Tipsters to add to your portfolio.

1. Elite League
Tip Exchange's very own premier league of Tipsters. Only those Tipsters that meet our strict criteria can qualify for the Elite League. This is the first place any serious Punter should be looking when expanding their portfolio.

2. Custom Tables
The custom table allows you to create your own league tables based on the criteria that you feel is important.

3. Award Winners
Successful Tipsters win awards when performing well over weekly and monthly periods. We have assigned points ratings to each award and have tabulated the results.

4. Best Free Tips
We have made it even easier to find and add free tips to your portfolio. The Free Tipsters League is just like the Custom tables but only includes Tipsters that are either free or are offering a free trial.

5. Tipster Ratings
Why not check out the Tipster Ratings table and see which Tipster has been given the highest ratings by their subscribers.

Tip Exchange Profit Explanation

From January 1st 2010, Tip Exchange uses Betfair SP to record horse racing prices from Betfair markets. Should Betfair fail to publish their SP's for any markets then we will use our previous recording mechanism as described below:

Prior to this, Tip Exchange had access to real Betfair prices and calculated profits for all bets against these prices. Odds for Tips posted prior to this date are derived from the returned SP for Horse Racing and Bookmakers prices for Football tips.

Those users that use Betfair regularly will know that the price can vary greatly leading up to the start of an event. In order for Tip Exchange to record a fair price for each tip, we take a price at two separate intervals within the final ten minutes leading up to start of the event. We then use the average of these two prices as the recorded odds for the selection. Note that Betfair does not offer Each Way betting and so we continue to use the traditional SP for these types of bets.

The profit is calculated for each selection as follows:

  • All winning back bets are calculated at the average recorded Betfair price and are subject to 5% commission.
  • All losing back bets are not subject to commission.
  • All losing lay to win bets are calculated at the average recorded Betfair price.
  • All winning lay to win bets are subject to a 5% commission charge.
  • All losing lay to risk bets lose the entire stake risked.
  • All winning lay to risk bets are calculated at the average recorded Betfair price and are subject to a 5% commission charge.
  • All winning EW bets are calculated at SP and are not subject to commission. Place terms are as follows:
    • Handicap races of 16 or more runners - 1/4 odds first 4 places.
    • Handicap races of 12 to 15 runners - 1/4 odds first 3 places.
    • All other races of 8 or more runners - 1/5 odds first 3 places.
    • All races of 5, 6 and 7 runners - 1/4 odds first 2 places.
    • Races with less than 5 runners - Place money goes on to win.
  • All losing EW bets are not subject to commission.
  • All winning Place Only bets are calculated at the average recorded Betfair price and are subject to 5% commission. Place terms for place markets are shown below.
  • All losing Place Only bets are not subject to commission. Place terms for place markets are shown below.
  • All losing Place lay to win bets are calculated at the average recorded Betfair price. Place terms for place markets are shown below.
  • All winning Place lay to win bets are subject to a 5% commission charge. Place terms for place markets are shown below.
  • All losing Place lay to risk bets lose the entire stake risked. Place terms for place markets are shown below.
  • All winning Place lay to risk bets are calculated at the average recorded Betfair price and are subject to a 5% commission charge. Place terms for place markets are shown below.
  • Place market terms are shown below and are based on declared runners and not actual runners.
    • Handicap races of 16 or more runners - 1/4 odds first 4 places.
    • Handicap races of 12 to 15 runners - 1/4 odds first 3 places.
    • All other races of 8 or more runners - 1/5 odds first 3 places.
    • All races of 5, 6 and 7 runners - 1/4 odds first 2 places.
    • Races with less than 5 runners declared - No bet.

Tipster Results Page


This is probably the most important section for someone who is looking for a reliable Tipster. These results are complete and accurate and are updated every day using the Tipster's recommended stakes. The Tipster is unable to modify these in any way. The results are broken down into monthly sections and by clicking on a month you can see each individual bet recommended along with the result, the odds and a running total of profit.

The strike rate shown in the table shows the percentage of bets that the Tipster won. By clicking on the Profit Explanation link you can see how the profit is calculated.

By clicking on the month of your choice you can investigate each individual selection made by the Tipster in that month. The table shows the date, time, event and selection for each tip. In addition it shows the type of bet being recommended. The different types of bets are as follows:

Back. This is the traditional type of bet that Punters would place with a bookmaker. Should the selection win, the Punter wins the stake multiplied by the odds of the selection. If the selection loses then the Punter loses the stake.

Lay TW (Lay To Win). Lay To Win Stake means that the Punter uses a betting exchange to bet a selection will lose. This particular bet means that the stake specified is the amount the Punter would WIN should the selection not win their event. If the selection does win the event then the Punter would lose the stake multiplied by the odds of the selection.

Lay TR (Lay To Risk). Lay To Risk Stake is similar to Lay To Win in that the Punter uses a betting exchange to bet a selection will lose. The difference is that this particular bet means that the stake specified is the amount the Punter would LOSE should the selection win the event. If the selection does not win the event then the Punter would win the stake divided by the odds of the selection.

EW (Each Way). (Horse Racing Only) This is the traditional type of each way bet that Punters can place with a bookmaker. There are two parts to the bet, one part to win and one part to place. Should the selection finish first, the Punter wins both parts of the bet. If the selection finishes in the places then the place part of the bet is won but the win part is lost. If the selection loses then the Punter loses the stake for both parts of the bet. The stake for the bet represents the stake for each part of the bet, so 1pt EW means 1pt to win and 1pt to place, hence you are risking 2pts.

Place Only. (Horse Racing Only) This allows Punters to bet that a selection will finish in the declared places using the betting exchange Place markets. If the selection finishes in the declared places then the Punter wins the stake multiplied by the odds of the selection. If the selection does not finish in the places then the Punter loses the stake.

Place Lay TW. (Horse Racing Only) Place Lay To Win Stake means that the Punter uses the betting exchange place markets to bet a selection will not finish in the declared places. This particular bet means that the stake specified is the amount the Punter would WIN should the selection not finish in the places. If the selection does finish in the places then the Punter would lose the stake multiplied by the odds of the selection.

Place Lay TR. (Horse Racing Only) Place Lay To Risk Stake is similar to Place Lay To Win in that the Punter uses the betting exchange place markets to bet a selection will not finish in the declared places. The difference is that this particular bet means that the stake specified is the amount the Punter would LOSE should the selection finish in the places. If the selection does not finish in the places then the Punter would win the stake divided by the odds of the selection.

In addition to the bet type, the Tipster's recommended stake is also shown. This can vary between 1 and 10 points (pts). A point represents a unit of betting which can be £1 or £100 or even more depending on your level of staking.

Also shown on the results table is the outcome of the bet, profit and a running total of profit for the month. The outcome of the bet can be Won, Lost or Place. This represents the result of the race. The result of the bet is highlighted by the colour of the word, green means a winning bet and red means a losing bet. For example, if a Tipster Lays a selection and that selection wins, the outcome will be displayed as 'Won' as the selection won but the text will be in red as the bet lost. Place outcomes are shown should a selection finish in the places for an each way selection. The profit is calculated for each individual selection based on the outcome.

Tipster Account Upgrade Page


The Upgrade page performs an assessment of your service and provides information about the financial implications of upgrading your account.

The page shows you the current account type, the amount of paying subscribers, your current price, and commission and uses this information to calculate the potential profit over the next twelve months. The calculation below is an example of a service with 35 subscribers paying £30 per month:

35 * 30 * 12 = £12600.00 -> (35 subscribers, £30 per month, 12 months)

£12600.00 – 35% = £8190.00 -> minus commission

£8190 - £20 = £8170.00 -> minus Annual Fee

The same calculation is applied to both the Silver and Gold accounts in order to see which subscription level would produce the best return for you.

The potential profit is an estimation of profit for the forthcoming year. It assumes that the current price, commission and paying subscribers remain constant for that period of time. The result is the net profit after all fees and commissions.

Note: The upgrade cost appears lower than the actual cost because any remaining time at the current level is included in the price.

Should you wish to upgrade to either the Silver or Gold accounts then click on the 'Upgrade Now' link and you will be transferred to the payment page summarising your upgrade. You can then click on the PayPal button where you will be transferred to PayPal's secure site to complete the transaction. If you decide that you are better off remaining at your current level and wish to extend for another year then click on the ‘Extend’ link next to your account type.

The Extend page shows the subscription level, how much it will cost and when your new expiry date will be. By clicking on the PayPal button you will be transferred to their secure site to complete the transaction.
