Finding a working betting system should not be about replacing your 8 hour working day at a company with an 8 hour betting day at home in front of a PC. It should be about getting more time and more freedom, so if you cannot automate your betting system to require less than a few minutes attention a day to check up on and a few hours a month to manage, then is it really worth it?

The Bf Bot Manager Automated Betting Bot Software

The BF Bot Manager is software that you download to your PC and then set to place bets automatically according to your instructions. It can run multiple strategies with different settings.

My System

I use Betaminic strategies as base value trends that have a high probability of making profit on level stakes just on pre-match bets. I then apply a staking plan to them, Secure Staking, with the settings that I researched myself (and published in my book The Staking Plans Book). I then have several add-on auto trading strategies that trade in-play based on match events. These work together to get the most out of the Betaminic strategies. The Betaminic strategies gave me the value trend to build my other bot strategies from.

I have used Betaminic since 2017, but had to place bets manually. Since February 2021, Betaminic and Bf Bot Manager have become compatible to allow completely automated betting. This allowed me to automate the whole process, and I just have to check-up on the bots to see how they are doing.

I have created a set of bots that are separated into types from A-Bots to T-Bots.

The Main Bots

A-Bots: These bots are triggered by Betaminic imported tips. They use new Secure3 staking settings I researched that will work well with this set.

C-Bots: These bots are triggered by the A-Bots that have home bets. If the in-play stats are positive for the home team, it places extra in-play bets at set times during the game.

T-Bot: This bot is triggered by the A-bots. It places level stakes 1 GBP bets to track the performance of the A-Bots strategy set.


Experimental Bots

D-Bot: This bot is triggered by the A-Bots that have home bets. If the away team was the pre-match underdog and gets a red card, it will place an extra in-play bet.

E-Bot: This bot is triggered by the A-Bots that have home bets.  If the away team was the pre-match underdog and scores first making it 0-1, then a lay bet will be placed in-play on the away pre-match dog.

F-Bots: These bots are triggered by the A-bots that have over 2.5 goal bets. They lay the draw in the first 10 minutes (to make sure the market went in-play) and then trade out if the draw prices go up by 25% (until the 85m mark) or after the 65m mark, it will trade out for a loss if the draw odds go under 1.5.

G-Bots: These bots are triggered by the A-bots that have over 2.5 goal bets. They place extra pre-match bets on the corresponding over 1.5 goals market.

The D-G bots are experimental. These bots are shared as an example of how add-on bots triggered by Betaminic picks might be able to increase profits. These are not perfected yet. They are not using the best settings. Only use these bots if you understand the conditions/rules and you still want to try them. Please edit the settings and try new things with them. If you find new settings that work better, please do share the data with me. Only use these with caution. The starting stakes are deliberately set low. You can change them if you like the look of one.


I pay £10 per month for the Bf Bot Manager and £11 per month for a Virtual Private Server (VPS). I then pay for Betaminic tips per pick. Each pick costs me € 0.69 (with the Professional Pack of 1,00 picks). So the cost per month depends on the number of bets the strategies generate.  If there are 170 picks in a month, that would be about £ 100 in Betaminic pick costs per month. But you can try it with one strategy for one month if you want to test it out.

To follow just one strategy to try it out.

Example of a 1 month plan to follow one strategy for one month. Strategy name: “No Draws Medium Streak – Both Teams (Updated 2021-11-15) All 111 leagues”
£25 for 1 month of Betaminic pick costs. (This is with the Starter package of 25 picks.)
£30 for 1 month of the Bf Bot Manager. (Cheaper long term if you pay for 12 months – > £120 up front means £10 per month)
£1,000 minimum starting betting bank (£2,000 – £3,000 recommended) (You only really need 20% of this actually in your Betfair account as working capital, the whole bank is not intended to be fully risked.)
Total – £255 recommended start-up capital (For 1 strategy for 1 month)

To follow the full system of 7 recommended strategies, this is a long term betting system and it needs a long term plan.

Example of a 6 month plan to follow this system of 7 strategies in full:
£580 for 5 -6 months of Betaminic pick costs. (This is with the Professional package of 1,000 picks.)
£90 for 6 months of the Bf Bot Manager. (Cheaper long term if you pay for 12 months – > £120)
£60 for 6 months of a VPS (SimplyHosting) (Cheaper long term if you pay for 12 months > £108)
£1,000 minimum starting betting bank (£2,000 – £3,000 recommended) (With a higher volume of bets, 50% of this betting bank is recommended to be in your Betfair account as working capital with Secure3 staking settings, unless you choose a more aggressive staking plan.)
Total – £1,230 recommended start-up capital (For 7 strategies over 6 months)

The target is for the bank to increase by 350%* in 6 months with the Secure staking plan settings and make a profit after covering the £730 fixed costs. (*This is based on staking analysis of historical results with The Staking Machine (TSM) software. But past results do not guarantee future profits. They just give us a betting strategy that is more likely to work than others.)

Even with a starting £1,000 betting bank plus £730 for 6 months of fixed costs, it is enough to begin and run this fully automated betting system. But it is a long term betting strategy with winning and losing months that needs careful bank management and staking plans. It is also possible to do it with less start-up capital using fewer Betaminic strategies.

For my Betaminic referrals, I can email you my Bf Bot Manager strategy files if you want to use them. But it is important to read the manual and watch the Bf Bot Manager tutorial videos to get an understanding of the software yourself so that you know exactly what your bot is doing. It is a little complex, but worth the effort to learn properly.  

When I shared my Betaminic strategies, I got a lot of feedback and some users exchanged a lot of ideas and information with me. That has helped me get to this stage. I hope that by sharing my Bf Bot Manager strategy ideas, that the same thing will happen, and that other users will share their working strategies with me as I will with you.

Good luck to us all. We now have all the tools we need to have the best shot at beating the bookies.

Unfortunately, my website does not allow zip files to be downloaded for security reasons, so you will have to email me to get the files.

A short mail is fine. “Tom, please send me the Basic Level Stakes Strategy Set of 5.” is fine.
