Arbvestor Review – 2014/2015
Arbvestor.com is the latest online surebet alert service. With just over two months from launch, Arbvestor provides surebet alerts for pre-match events. They are still under development, and have plans to increase functionality in the short term.
Arbvestor displays surebets for future events, collecting odds from 24 bookmakers and exchanges. The service brings arbs for football, basketball and ice hockey and several markets in a clean design. Markets include 1X2, money line, handicaps, totals and some cross markets arbs.
Regarding periods, they cover fulltime (with and without overtime), halves on football, quarters on basketball, and periods on hockey.
The service still needs work to be a strong contender to other alert services. Currently the list of sports, markets and filters available are not what experienced arbers may need.
After you log in, you see the main view with a list of surebets, sorted by percentage. This list can also be sorted by kick off time. The arbitrage list displays each arb on a row with almost all relevant information clearly organised inside. Each arb shows the sport, arb percentage, league and teams, time until kick off, and legs (market outcomes and bookmakers involved). Next to the arb percentage you can see an arrow up or down only after a recent change.
By clicking on the arb, the detailed arbitrage view is displayed. This detailed view includes bookmakers, markets, outcomes and odds involved on each leg, and also offers a list of other options (other bookmakers with lower odds that could also create arbitrage opportunities). On the detailed arb view you can go back to the arb list or you can open the arbitrage calculator and navigate to each bookmaker – if the Betfinder extension is installed.
Betfinder not only navigates to the bets of an arb, it also logs you into the bookie’s website. For that to work, you need to put the credentials for each bookie that you have an account with into the preferences. After clicking the “Go” button the Betfinder open new tabs on the web browser and find bets on each bookmaker. After setting the stakes to bet, just hit the “set amount” button and the values will be transferred to the bookie page betslip.
Arbvestor offers a basic bookkeeper application to record your bets and other transactions across your bookmaker accounts. You can record each bet from Arbvestor’s calculator.
Arbvestor provides a left vertical pane with its main options, which include filters. The filter section allows users to set some conditions to select arbitrage opportunities. These conditions include:
- the arbitrage minimum and maximum percentage (from -0.1 to 14.9 or unlimited)
- the minimum and maximum kick off time (from now to 2 months or unlimited)
- the sport (right now only one sport or all sports can be selected)
- the bookies (right now only one bookie or all bookies can be selected)
There is also a checkbox where you can choose to display only arbs within your bookies, as set on your preferences.
Users can set general settings, including:
- share settings between computers and devices
- toggle arb notifications
- arb percentage threshold
- main currency
- time zone
Finally, users can set their bookmaker accounts from the list of bookies managed by Arbvestor. For each bookie, users can set the username and password (to enable autologin), the commission type and percentage, a custom URL and the currency. Currencies can be selected from a list which only displays each bookmaker’s allowed currencies; however it seems some currencies are missing (such as USD for bwin or bet365)
Every surebet can be calculated on the built in calculator. Users must specify the total stake or the stake for one of the bet legs (outcomes) and the calculator will calculate other stakes, the arbitrage percentage, return on each bet and profit (or loss).
The calculator does not allow users to change the odds. It supports commissions (as set on your preferences) and rounding (but rounding is managed by Arbvestor and cannot be configured).
Customer support can be contacted using an embedded message form on the application site. There is also a basic user manual on their site, as well as a FAQ page.
Arbvestor participates in Arbusers forum where they post information and answer users questions. In this forum they have a specific board with 4 threads at the time of our review.
They have a facebook and Google+ page.
