SPIKEY Soccer Bot (Version1) scans all Betfair Soccer Markets on the search for Big/Strange Volumes. It watches Betfair soccer markets to find amazing opportunities and send you an alert by e-mail when it spots an opportunity according to your settings.
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!
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.

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
Go to the “General” tab
Click on “Unlock file”
Re-execute the installation file.
When I try to send the request for the activation key, nothing happens
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?
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?
What do I need to start with SPIKEY?
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.
