The Tip Exchange is a new and innovative concept in the way sports and racing tips are provided.
The Tip Exchange is a market place for Tipsters to sell their Tips and Subscribers to buy. The goal on both sides of the fence is to make a financial gain form the transaction using The Tip
Exchange platform to facilitate this process.
The Tip Exchange aim is to provide a market place where there is complete transparency on the side of the Tipster and absolute confidence on the side of the Subscriber leading to both parties
building a relationship based on financial gain.
One of the major benefits for both Tipsters and Subscribers of the The Tip Exchange is integrity of results. Subscribers can research Tipsters in the knowledge that the data displayed on our
website is accurate allowing them to make informed judgements based on facts. Tipsters can compete against fellow Tipsters knowing that the playing field is level and the cream is guaranteed to
rise to the top and attract the attention of Subscribers.
The Tip Exchange platform acts just like a normal online bookmaker where odds are provided in real time and markets have a scheduled close time. As a result we can provide a 100% gaurantee on the
integrity of the Tip Exchange.
The Tip Exchange allows Tipsters to put a price on individual Tips. The Tipster runs his homepage on The Tip Exchange like a business and can change the price charges for individual Tips at
anytime. As with any free market the forces of supply and demand will determine the key pricing structure laid down by the Tipsters.
Once a Subscriber purchases a Tip from a Tipster the next Tip provided by the Tipster is emailed to the Subscriber email address automatically upon the Tipster loading his selection into The Tip
Exchange platform. The Tip will specify a unit stake and provide the odds of that Tip which are controlled by the Tip Exchange. The selections will only be displayed on our website after the
event has been resulted to protect the intellectual property of the Tipster.
The Tip Exchange concept was born after we identified a gap in the tipping segment of the gambling industry for both the professional Tipster and the general punter. We were frustrated with the
tall tales and egos that are breed by the gambling industry. No body wants to admit to being a bad gambler and the competitive nature of trying to win money creates unsubstantiated claims about
results. The Tip Exchange now provides an absolute answer to these issues by providing a platform where your skills as a gambler are put on display in a format that guarantees a level playing
At The Tip Exchange results due all the talking.

Stacking Plans and Return on Turnover
When following Tipsters on the The Tip Exchange it is not just as simple putting your money on the selections provided by your chosen
Tipster. It is crucial that you allocate a pool of funds as your bankroll and then maximise your profits through bank roll management
and implementing a staking plan.
When following a Tipster you need to decide on a bankroll management strategy that will produce the maximum profit out of the
approach. This is where the management of your betting bank is vital. There are two approaches you can take to your betting bank.
The Constant bank approach, which keeps the size of your bank the same each time you bet, so regardless of winning or loosing you
stake as if you have the same amount in your bankroll. This is a very simple approach which has some major draw backs when looking at
your strategy over an extended period of time. A Variable bank is where you adjust your bet size in relation to the size of the bank
on a timeline this could mean after every bet, every week or perhaps once a month. The result of this method is too increase your
bets when your bank is increasing and decrease your bets when your bank is decreasing.
The Tip Exchange would recommend you implement a variable bank roll strategy. If your bankroll has grown and you are betting the same
size stake then you are staking too small for your bankroll or even worse the flip side being a decrease in your bank roll and you
are betting the same stake meaning you are betting to big for your bankroll and exposing yourself to undue risk during periods of
On the The Tip Exchange tipsters provide their tips in unit values. A unit value is the amount of money you risk when betting. The
unit value should be proportioned to the size of your betting bank. It is also an excellent way to compare tipsters across different
types of sports and bet types.
When using units tipsters can advise the level of investment by the unit value suggested which is a staking plan. Stacking plans can
enhance the profits of tipsters selections as it is an indicator as too the rating of the bet, however, they can also reduce the
profit of a system.
Tipsters on the exchange can nominate a selection in unit values ranging from 1 units through to 10 units. The 1 to 10 unit rating system is in place to allow our tipsters to implement a staking plan. The system has a 10 unit
value maximum to stop tipsters from trying to increase there return on investment through placing a large number of units (relative
to the standard unit bet size) on a selection in the hope that a one off bet will be successful and hence misrepresent or wrongly
skew the results of such a Tipster.
There are two types of unit value stacking plans, level stakes and recommended stakes. Level stakes is a basic strategy where the
Tipster bets are backed with the same number of units for each selection. Level stakes generally apply when a Tipster is looking at
selections that are predominately at the same price with the bets being very similar to each other. Recommended stakes is a more
complex strategy, it rates selections differently depending on the strength of the selection and is the stacking plan applied on The
Tip Exchange. This strategy makes sense as the information used to makes selections comes in different strengths as well as the odds
of the selection being different for each bet representing the different probability of each selection winning. For example a Golf
Tipster might advise a 10 unit bet on Tiger Woods to win The Masters at $2.60 and a 1 unit bet on Vijay Singh to win the same event
at $26. The Tipster iS having his maximum unit bet on Woods and is saying that the $2.60 price should be a lot shorter in
representing Woods chances of a win. Likewise on Singh the Tipster after analyzing the field has determined Singh to be a $16
chance, therefore, would advise the selection be backed with a smaller unit value as it has a much smaller chance of winning but
still represents excellent value at the price.
The Tip exchange website provides a forum in which a potential subscriber can look at Tipsters, records that are reliable and
verified as correct. These records are displayed in Tables, whilst analysis of specific Tipster, accounts can be made by clicking on
the Tipster, name the remaining information in the tables is used by The Tip Exchange to rate ,Tipster, accounts.
The Tip exchange uses key factors to rate a Tipster account. The major factor is Units Won. Tipsters showing a profit will have a Units Won
greater than zero. The larger the number of bets used to generate the profitability rating the more robust the Tipsters results will
Why do Subscribers need to consider the robustness of a Tipsters account? A Tipsters account might have an outstanding Units Won, but it is based on only a small number of bets, say 15 bets. A subscriber cannot be confident that the Units Won really reflects the
Tipsters skill in producing such results. On the other hand a Tipster, who has had 200 bets and has produced a posative Units Won can be
considered to be more robust as the Tipster skill has been tested over and over again and is more likely to stay true.
The above information can help Subscribers determine some important information. Knowledge of the number of bets a Tipster will
advise in a period of time coupled with information about the expected Unit Value will allow a Subscriber to manage his money flow and
minimise his risk or exposure. The higher the percentage of bank invested per stake decided by the Subscriber the
higher the risk associated with the Tipsters package. The Tip exchange would advise Subscribers to minimise risk and continue to
profit over the long term than attempt to make a large profits with high percentage stakes over the short term. For example Five
consecutive losing bets of $20 each would close out a betting bank of $100. If the stakes had instead been $5 the Subscriber could
afford to have 20 losing bets before facing a wipe out. This seems obvious rational yet it is surprising how many punters still
insist on using stake sizes that a proper risk assessment would consider to be entirely unacceptable.
All Tipsters will encounter negative months. The important thing to consider when deciding to Subscribe to a service is that it has
to be a long term investment to be worthwhile. Consistent and reliable returns can only be shown over time. The Tip exchange shows
you how the Tipster has preformed in the past so you can gauge how they might perform in the future. The Tip exchange strongly
recommends once you have chosen your Tipster that offers the best long term value make a long term commitment and decide on a stake
amount which does not overstretch you during the loosing periods while at the same time makes the investment worthwhile and
implement a bankroll strategy.
We hope the above information is useful in your approach to making a positive return from your gambling experience.
Beating the Bookie
How is it possible for a Tipster to consistently beat the bookmakers? To answer this question we need to talk about the Over Round. Mathematically
the sum of all probabilities for all possibilities in an event must be 1.00 or 100%. The difference between this and the bookmakers
sum of probabilities represents the bookmakers profit margin. A book with a total percentage over 100 is said to be Over Round.
As an example we will use a pack of 52 standard playing cards and show how a bookmaker would make money by asking you to back the
chances of drawing a specific card. The fair odds for selecting any particular card from a standard deck of 52 are 51/1, with a
probability of 0.0192 or 1.92%. As one might expect, the sum of probabilities for all cards will be 52 x 0.0192 which equals 1 or
100%. To gain an edge over the punter a bookmaker will reduce those odds for example to 48/1. These odds are then unfair since their
associated probability is now higher at 0.0204 or 2.04% than the true chance of picking any particular card. The sum of the
probabilities for all cards is now 52 x 0.0204, that is 1.061 or 106.1%. This may be expressed by saying that the over round is
106.1% or 1.061 as a decimal. That is for every 100 units paid out to punters the bookmaker can expect to take 106.1 or a profit of
6.1% on turnover.
Since the true probabilities associated with drawing a card are mathematically fixed the punter will be guaranteed to make a long
term loss. That is not to say he might not profit in the short run with lucky selections but as the number of selections increase
the bookmakers over round takes effect and the punter will lose.
It comes as no surprise that the vast majority of gamblers lose at fixed odds sports betting over the long run. So why are some
gamblers able to beat The Over Round and in the process the bookies? Well in sports betting the fair odds of a particular event
occurring cannot possibly be known. consequently the probabilities of sports betting are mathematically uncertain. It is fair to
say that most bookmakers are very good at setting prices and estimating the true chance of sporting events results and locking in a
profit margin using The Over Round. Nevertheless as sports are not statistically quantifiable a punter can make an estimate of the
chances of an event happening which is more accurate than the bookmakers.
With the belief that they know more than the bookmakers Tipsters are prepared to accept the disadvantage of The Over Round and place
a wager into a market they believe to be wrong allowing them to overcome the disadvantage and make a profit. How can a Tipster be
sure that his estimate is more accurate than the bookmakers. Punters differ in the methods they use to acquire a sports betting
knowledge. Some like to adopt a more mathematical approach by using rating systems based on past performance to predict future
outcomes. Others spend hours each week poring over sports journals and internet sites to glean as much information as they can about
a particular event, including news about the weather and team or player injuries and morale. Still others base their judgement on a
subjective feel for the forthcoming event relying on an inkling or a hunch about what may happen.
There is no right or wrong approach to seeking a betting edge. Ultimately the best one is the one that works for you and one that
returns a profit. However what each approach has in common is a shared aim of finding value in the odds where the true chance of a
win is greater than that estimated by the bookmaker.
Successful betting is all about understanding and managing probabilities and since odds are just probabilities value betting offers
the only way to beat the bookmaker.
