📸 All the images, 📝 descriptions, and ✍️ written content below are in reference to SPIKEY Soccer (Version 1) ⚽️.

Spikey Soccer Software (Bot) watches Betfair soccer markets and lets you know where there are unusual patterns as they happen so, for example, if you see BIG Money going on a particular bet, you can join them (or take advantage of the knowledge that the price on that bet is likely to shorten but others should lengthen).

To find amazing opportunities don’t miss it, Spikey Soccer Software (Bot) scans all Betfair soccer markets on the search for Big Volumes and send alerts by e-mail!

“Spikey Soccer Software (Bot) is the ULTIMATE bot”
I now have the ability to bet where the ‘smart’ money is being bet. No second guessing, no having to sit and hope I spot something in some obscure market somewhere. I have a piece of football software that works FOR ME all day long searching for the smart money, and alerting me exactly where it is happening as it is happening.
I don’t have ‘insider information’, I don’t need it. The Betfair market tells me all I need to know and my software allows me to spot it instantly.
And now you can too!
The Betfair market is huge. I’ve only scratched the surface here and there’s plenty of opportunities available for you to get a piece of the action too.
If you would like to have Spikey Football Bot working for you, alerting you to unusual betting patterns so that you can either copy them, or trade them out for very profitable risk free bets, then you are invited to purchase a license to Spikey Bot for a one off payment. It’s possible that just one alert could pay for this software and you then have it working for you for life, scanning the markets finding profitable betting and trading opportunities indefinitely and leaving you with some very easy decisions to make.“

First, what is a Spike?

A Spike in the Betfair Market means nothing else than a lot of money matched in a very short timeframe. Spikey scanning all soccer markets on the search for Big Volumes.

Once Spikey spots an opportunity according to your settings it will send an Alert (on your PC and by e-mail). Basically there are 5 included systems and you get the bot ready to run with default settings which you can alterate to your needs.

From Brainwave to Football Bot: The Story of Spikey

I’m sure we’re all aware that there are dodgy betting practices happening all the time. I’m not just talking about the stuff we see in the movies, where gangsters bet a hundred grand on the favoured boxer to get KO’d in the fifth round. You will have seen on the news famous cricketers or footballers under investigation by the authorities for ‘unusual betting patterns’, and the subsequent disgrace of said professional players as they have been found guilty of match fixing and insider trading.
But how do they get caught?

What usually happens is that a large amount of money is bet on an obscure market, at an obscure time, usually offering very good odds and then that bet goes on to win. This immediately gets the bookmaker, or betting exchange, asking questions: someone, somewhere is ‘in the know’ about something and has bet a large amount of money using this knowledge. If a link can be found between the players concerned, and the people doing the betting, then prosecutions can be made.
Have a look at this game below from the French 2nd league between Caen and Clermont. This even made the headlines. One day before match day, there was a couple of thousand euros bet on the Half Time/Full Time outcome of 2/1. This basically means that the away team leads by half time but by the full time the home team wins by this particular scoreline.

Now, this may not sound very significant but if you look at every other market on this game there was zero turnover. No interest whatsoever.
Then, just before kick off, there was a massive amount of money traded on exactly this outcome. More than €100,000 on this HT/FT market; way more than on the match odds and Over 2.5 markets combined.
And I’m sure by now you can guess the result…

Look at this video!

A couple of days later we see the same pattern in Japan with Hiroshima-Kawasaki.


Again the only market with ANY volume was the HT/FT market for an eventual 2/1 Win, as above. You can see well over 5k has already been traded with NO VOLUME traded on ANY other market in this game. Now see what happened a couple of hours later…


The odds heavily plummeted from 29/1 with various high street bookies earlier in the day and again, the result was exactly as the market suggested.
Now of course it’s impossible for us to know what is happening behind the scenes, but I’m sure you can imagine the possibilites available to anyone who can spot betting patterns like this as they are happening!
I happened to spot this one and I bet on the HT/FT income at between 20/1-30/1 with almost every bookmaker that would take the bet. As the odds steamed in, I traded out at around 10/1 giving me a very nice risk free bet. Of course, the bet still went on to win netting me a four figure win. And if it had lost, I would have broken even.
As I looked at my winnings, I had an idea.
That idea led to me spending a fairly substantial amount on programmers, hundreds of hours of coding, many frustrations, many developments and sleepless nights. Eighteen months later we had cracked it.
My idea was to find a way to spot these unusual betting patterns automatically, and to be alerted when they occur so that I could jump on them myself. Even if the bets went on to lose it wouldn’t matter because the lumping on of cash in small markets always causes the odds to plummet, creating the perfect situation for trading out if I wanted to. Or I could simply back these bets myself and hope that ‘those in the know’ knew what they were doing.
Either way, it was an exciting proposition.
And so Spikey Football Bot was created and developed by Bettingdev, named after the ‘spike’ in the Betfair market caused by large volumes of money matched in a very short timeframe.


Spikey Football Bot runs quietly; efficiently scanning all the In Play markets searching for these specific large volumes. Once it spots an opportunity it sends you an alert.


Alerts are displayed on your PC and sent by e-mail.
Now, instead of just spotting these opportunities by chance, I have a football bot that works all day actively looking for them and telling me when they are happening.
I made the football bot customizable too.
To save scanning speed and memory you can disable certain countries just by unticking them


Spikey Football Bot is able to cover ALL markets on Betfair although personally I only choose a couple of markets to save resources.

Alert 2: Correlation of Odds and Traded Volume. In an efficient market more money will be traded the lower the odds get. If that’s not the case then Spikey will alert you. Here is example for you Celtic fans. This was the alert I got on my mobile before the match.


A lot of money had gone on Leigh Griffiths being the first goal scorer, so I followed it. It took just three minutes for me to collect on this bet.


Alert 3: This is for HT/FT discrepancies where we can take advantage of early money lumped on in the Betfair market as shown in our examples above.
Alert 5: This is my favorite and most successfull one.
Look at these few examples and I’m sure you’ll be stunned!
In this game between Amkar and Terek Grozny the markets are sleeping but all of a sudden there appears a Lay bet for 20k lumped in.
Very shortly afterwards the goal comes in.


Coincidence? You decide. Here’s another Spike in this South American game.


Here the odds skyrocket from under 1.25 up to 3.0 for a very nice trade, again you can see the volume spike just before.


And look at this. The heavy, red hot, unbeatable 1/5 favourite is behind in the game; nothing serious you might think. Things like this happen every day, right? But look what’s going on when the Ref blows his whistle for Half Time. Some well informed people started to back the favorite extremely heavily; despite the fact it’s lagging a goal and half of the game has already gone!
Of course, you can guess the outcome.



To find amazing opportunities, don’t miss Spikey Soccer Software (Bot)!

    • but in your usage history, do you have a setting with a high% of indications taken and therefore to indicate to me? the goodness of the product is at stake! I await an answer! a thousand thanks

    • Spikey Soccer sends alerts but doesn’t bet. When you get an alert it means someone or somewhat did create some kind of turnover in the Betfair Markets. As a basic rule you can interprete the alerts as follows. A Turnover/Spike in the UNDER Markets on Betfair, means there was a Lay Bet, since based on the Mechanics of the Exchanges you only can Lay huge Amounts in a falling Market, you cant back it. Hence we interprete this as a Laybet.

      The same is true for the Over Markets. You ONLY can Back huge Amounts in a rising Market. Hence it’s interpreted this as a Back Bet.

      It’s why it’s impossible to give you results because it depends of stake and how user uses alerts. Hope you understand.

    Only started using it the other day.
    As a complete technophobe, I was worried about the installation. However I opted for the VPS to run the software as I am sure it would have slowed my computer.
    The alerts work very well.
    So far it is looking very good.
    Further clarity on the systems perhaps and how to improve. Some are explained in more detail than others.

  11. Spikey is one of the most underrated bots available for the Betfair exchange. Money, movement and speed is everything in the trading/betting game and this piece of software is exactly what you need. Stop wasting your time scrolling through every market individually – set your Countries and Markets with Spikey, sit back and wait for the action to happen. Set up alerts to your email and you’ll never miss the next big exchange.
    I’ve been using this piece of software for the last couple of years and I really would not be as successful as I am today without it. Catch suspicious high trades in moments and get on the trend. It’s really that simple. It’s true what they say, one alert alone can cover the cost of one-off payment! The customer support BettingDev offer cannot be beaten, friendly down to earth people who are always available to take your questions with a smile of their face.
    Overall 5/5 rating. No.1 Essential Piece of software

I am interesting in buying a annual license? Is your bots will run with a Romanian Betfair account?

Yes, all our bots can run with all Betfair accounts in these countries: United Kingdom | Andorra | Argentina | Australia | Austria | Azerbaijan | Bahamas | Barbados | Belarus | Bermuda | Bolivia | Bosnia and Herzegovina | Botswana | Brazil | Burundi | Cambodia | Cayman Islands | Chile | Costa Rica | Croatia | Denmark | Dominican Republic | Ecuador | Egypt | El Salvador | Equatorial Guinea | Faroe Islands | Finland | Gabon | Gibraltar | Guatemala | Honduras | Hungary | Iceland | Indonesia | Ireland | Ivory Coast | Jamaica | Japan | Kazakhstan | Kyrgyzstan | Latvia | Lebanon | Liberia | Liechtenstein | Lithuania | Luxembourg | Malta | Mauritius | Mexico | Moldova | Monaco | Mongolia | Montenegro | Morocco | Nepal | Netherlands Antilles | New Zealand | Nicaragua | Nigeria | Norway | Pakistan | Panama | Paraguay | Peru | Philippines | Romania | Saint Lucia | Seychelles | Slovakia | South Korea | Sri Lanka | Sultanate of Oman | Sweden | Thailand | Trinidad and Tobago | Tunisia | Turkmenistan | Ukraine | Uruguay | Uzbekistan | Venezuela | Virgin Islands, British | Vietnam.

I have an issue when I launch my bot

If you have any issue when launching the software, follow these steps:

Close the bot,
Download Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistribuable Package (x86) and launch it,
Select “Install” or “Repair”,
Relaunch the bot.

How to ask for my product key?

Once the bot is installed, you can ask for the product key through the bot or you can send us your first, last names and ID number you have registered at

Find out more here!

After having installed SPIKEY, when I try to launch the application, it crashes immediately.

This is due to the fact that you have not installed Betting Assistant. Betting Assistant must be installed before to launch SPIKEY, and Betting Assistant must be launched before to turn on the bot.

When I execute the installation file, nothing happens!

Windows 7 and 8 could block the execution of the installation as the file comes from Internet.
To bypass this issue, you need to unlock the file:
Right-click the file
Click “Properties”
Go to the “General” tab
Click on “Unlock file”
Click OK
Re-execute the installation file.

When I try to send the request for the activation key, nothing happens

Once the bot is installed, you can ask for the product key through the bot or you can send us your first, last names and ID number you have registered at

Find out more here!

My computer is freezing when I use my Bot

This could be due to your computer configuration, please make sure that you have all the system requirements.

Generally speaking, for a better use of the bot we advise the use of our UK VPS.

A VPS will ensure a best internet connection (fastest, no interruption, etc), and most of the time a powerful configuration. Also, using a VPS means that you no longer need to keep your computer turned on 24 hours a day!

For the previous reasons, we strongly advise against using a laptop to use your Bot!

How many computers can I install my Bot on?

You can install and run the bot on 1 computer at any one time.

One licence = One computer

I would like to run SPIKEY 24 hours a day, 7 days a week but I don’t want to leave my computer on all the day, do you have a solution for me?

Yes, Bettingdev UK VPS allow you to keep running SPIKEY on our virtual servers from anywhere in the world. Everything is configured and installed by our technical staff.
Find out more here.

How to contact the Technical Support?

  • If you want to report a bug, the best way is to click on the button “?” in SPIKEY Pro, then select “Contact the Technical Support”. A windows opens, enter your message, attach a screenshot if necessary, and select the options “Debugging files”, “Settings file” and others like “Strategies file” if your issue is linked to a specific strategy for example.
  • If you have a technical questions about the bot, the fastest way is to post a message in our forum here.
  • .

Is there a forum where I can communicate with other users?

Yes, if you need advices for strategies (help from other users) click here.

And you can also post your suggestions by clicking here.

What do I need to start with SPIKEY?

You need a Betfair Account and a Gruss Software subscription (Betting Assistant).

What is Betting Assistant and what is it used for?

SPIKEY does not directly use the Betfair API but uses the COM connection of Betting Assistant (Gruss Software) to connect to your Betfair account. That’s why you have to subscribe to Betting Assistant (£6/month) to run it (i.e. to read markets).

As a new subscriber of Betting Assistant you can enjoy a 30-day free trial.

Do I need a VPS to run SPIKEY?

If your personal computer has the necessary technical requirements you can run SPIKEY with it.

But for a better use of SPIKEY we advise the use of our UK VPS. If you want to install a lifetime license of SPIKEY, the STANDARD PLAN is ideal. But if you only want to use SPIKEY on a monthly basis on one of our UK VPS’s then the ONE BOT PLAN plan is the perfect plan for you.

Considering SPIKEY runs 24/7, you can turn off your personal computer while it runs on our UK VPS. The betting market never stops so it is inconceivable that you would need to stop SPIKEY just because you have to turn off your personal computer!

Also, between you and us, the fact is that your personal computer is not really designed to stay ON for 24/7. Running it like that will inevitably shorten its lifespan!

Can I uninstall and reinstall SPIKEY in the case of broken PC or VPS server change?

YES of course. Concretely, if you want to change your PC or use a VPS, we will send you a new product key, and the previous one will be automatically deactivated because One Licence = One computer or VPS.
