What is a betting bot?

The core aim of any betting software is to save valuable time by automating betting approaches. The majority of bots on the market work through – API (Application Program Interface. Basically the bot takes all its raw data from the betting exchanges in real time.  Then process`s this data based around the criteria you stipulate via the available  filters.

Obviously everyone will approach  betting in different ways, therefore most bots feature many different filters which can be set up to place bets once your stipulated system or trading conditions are met.

Betting software is all the rage and there are literally dozens to choose from some are subscription based whilst others can be purchased for a one off fee. The core aim of a bot is to save time by fully, or partially automating your betting. One thing to bear in mind is that automating a betting approach wont necessarily make that approach more profitable.

That can only be achieved when the strategies you manually employ have already proven to be profitable. In many cases bots are merely a tools designed to save time.

Fortunately most betting bots have demo modes.  These can be used to test systems or ideas, and just as importantly they can be set so you can get to know the key functions before risking any money.

Obviously different types of bots perform different functions. Some are designed solely or trading with one click features which allow the user to green up a market thus no matter what the outcome of the event a profit is made. which features using a bot is completely different

The list below is by no means exhaustive,  but rather includes some of the more obvious points to consider if you are thinking of buying and using a bot.
