My annual Betting System Oscars have become a firm favourite amongst readers since they were introduced in 2012.
Readers vote for the same gongs each year… and, perhaps because they, rather than I, are making the decisions, the resulting awards pages are always some of the busiest on the site.
The upshot is… I’ve not changed the format one jot since we doled out the very first Oscar.
Until now, that is.
Yes, for the first time ever, I’m introducing a brand new award – voted for by readers once again – for a rapidly emerging category I can no longer ignore.
Welcome to this year’s inaugural Betting Oscar for … Best Betting Bot!
And the award has gone to a product we’ve never previously reviewed at Lay Back.
Though, in many ways, it could be argued that this bot is the ‘grandaddy’ of all the many new pieces of automation software that have suddenly flooded the market.
Simply because it’s been around for about a decade!
Yes, you’ve guessed it, the winner of the 2015 Best Betting Bot Oscar is….
is…… (deep breath!…)
Bet Angel is a remarkably powerful piece of betting software.
It’s the sort of product that I must confess to baulking at slightly when it comes to testing, as it’s just so comprehensive, I fear a proper trial might take over my life!
But the fact we’ve never reviewed it before at Lay Back hasn’t stopped its many fans from voting it in as a comfortable winner.
I’d describe Bet Angel as a complete support environment for exchange users, which you can either use either in:
- realtime to improve your live trading or
- batch mode, via scripts, to automate pre-defined strategies.
Peter Webb’s two-minute introduction gives you a fair bit more detail (even if the swirling screens behind his head are a little disturbing!).
Bet Angel comes in three flavours, plus there’s even a two week free trial so you can try before you buy.
The Basic version appears to be permanently free but doesn’t, in truth, offer a lot. However, the Trader and Professional options provide an extraordinary range of features – and either can be downloaded by anyone who fancies trying them for that free fortnight.
Peter was naturally thrilled to receive the Oscar and sends this message:
“On behalf of the team at Bet Angel we are delighted to have been voted the best betting bot of 2015.
“Since we created the first version of Bet Angel ten years ago, we have worked relentlessly hard to keep improving it. This is what has helped our members to keep ahead in a competitive market. It’s something we plan to do for some time to come!”
It’s hard not to be as impressed by Bet Angel’s longevity and popularity as I am by its dazzling list of features.
It has been through a whole series of upgrades as real traders have identified new needs and opportunities. What we have today in Bet Angel is a thoroughly robust, fully featured sports trading tool and environment that clearly Lay Back readers regard as second to none.
In my opinion, Bet Angel is therefore a worthy winner of the first ever Lay Back Oscar for Best Betting Bot.
