Imagine claiming £127,000 cash, a VIP trip to the BAFTA's, a brand NEW 43" TV and a trip to the Caribbean... in your COFFEE BREAK!
"Just received cheque for £50,000. Still cannot believe that I have won so much! It's mind-boggling. I suppose I will just have to get on and start spending it!" Tony, Wigan
"I am delighted to say I have won a James Villa holiday for four people worth £2,500! I depart with my party to Kefalonia on 2nd Sept, What a fantastic prize which includes car hire" Ann, Atherstone
And what's even better is that YOU could join the likes of Tony, Ann and hundreds of others like them in just the 5 minutes it takes to have a cuppa in your next break!
You've no doubt seen the stories in the national press, on the news and on the radio - ordinary people like you and me who are transforming their lives by taking home prizes, gifts and freebies. Never having to pay for their next holiday or any of the presents from their families Christmas lists again.
People like Kiran Parry, who tops up his annual income by nearly £6,000 a year with the freebies he takes home.
Or Di Coke who was able to give up her job to live off the prizes she wins! In fact Di says she has won over £250,000 in prizes.
And Victoria Measures who started entering competitions to save money as a student who has racked up a whopping £30,000 worth of prizes – more than the average UK salary of £27,300.
Then there's Holly Gregerson who started comping in December last year, with the aim of having a spend-free Christmas.
And how about Sarah Taylor who had already won £12,000 worth of prizes, but had just lost her job when she won a dream wedding worth £10,000.
The Mirror told how Ricky Willis has won £20,000 entering free competitions.
The Sun also followed Victoria's story we mentioned earlier.
Even the Telegraph have reported on how successful a hobby comping can be.
None of these compers are associated with Coffee Break Winner in anyway, and I don't want to suggest that we had anything to do with their success. I'm only showing you that ordinary, people like you and me, are winning prizes everyday and that their success is recognised and reported in the national press.
Over the next few minutes I'll introduce you to my readers who have won through Coffee Break Winner but I thought seeing independent reporting on comping and how it's changed people lives was important.
All the prizes in the headline aren't the highlights of years worth of publishing, in fact they don't even reflect a year's worth of competitions. All the prizes were available in January 2018.
And that's only a fraction of what was on offer, there were more than ten luxury holidays, including trips to Australia, India and even Moscow. We found over £500,000 worth of cash prizes and countless other prizes like high street vouchers, the latest smart phones and even a fridge worth £3,600.
Does anything make these people special?
Absolutely nothing! They have no better odds of taking home these prizes and freebies than you do, and you could easily join them.
In fact... I KNOW how you could do EVEN BETTER than them, without having to put in even a tenth of the effort that they do...
You see, people like Kiran and Di are what I call full-time compers. They dedicate their lives, or at least all of their free time, to endlessly entering their name and address onto prize draw forms or spending hours completing projects for creative competition entries to get their hands on these giveaways.
And although the rewards are great, it can be hard to find that much spare time, especially if you lead a busy life...
But there is a SECRET way you can win the same amount as they do, if not more, without having to change your lifestyle at all.
I want to tell you how, in just five minutes a day, you could lay claim to the thousands of pounds worth of cash, vouchers, cars and electrical items that are given away EVERY SINGLE DAY.
Just imagine never having to pay for a holiday again, yet still being able to jet off to the sunshine at least once a year.
Imagine having access to an unlimited supply of shopping vouchers to spend anywhere from John Lewis to Tesco, never having to get out your bank card for the groceries or a new outfit.
Imagine having cheques dropping through your door worth thousands of pounds, or driving to work in a brand-new car that you picked up straight from the garage, without having to think about the finance repayments.
And all it takes is a quick five minutes of effort per day - it's so easy you can even do it in your coffee break!
In fact, you'll soon be laughing to yourself every break-time as, whilst your colleagues are chatting about last night's episode of Corrie or the latest celebrity gossip, you are quietly picking up amazing freebies that they won't EVEN know about.
And the results could be immediate...
"I've only been on the site just over a week and I won a Samsung Tablet.I've never won anything before. Really chuffed." Tracy, Coventry

Or how about this for a phone call?
"I've just received a phone call from ITV letting me know that I have just won £7,676 after entering a competition on CBW So thank you very much..." Steven, Bridlington

With an average of 20 competitions every Monday, all new that week, this is a fantastic source of big-money low-entry giveaways.
Tuesday is Puzzles4Prizes: Did you know that one of the biggest sources of cash giveaways in the UK are through puzzle magazines?

But with Coffee Break Winner we do all of the work for you! We buy all the magazines, we answer all of the puzzles (over 70 per week) and we bring the answers direct to you.

Log onto our site each day to see what you could win. Either enter them during your coffee, lunch or afternoon break... or wait till you get home...
Look at how much time and money Coffee Break Winner will save you.
To enter all the giveaways offered by Coffee Break Winner yourself would cost a small fortune, you'd need to buy ALL the weekend papers, ALL of the weekly magazines, ALL of the puzzle magazines and spend the rest of your time watching TV and surfing the net and social networks.

The Daily Mail and Mail on Sunday (1.00p + £1.80)
The Sun and the Sun on Sunday (70p + £1.10)

And that's just for the weekend newspapers! Every Tuesday's Puzzles4Prizes bring you over 70 competitions from the weekly puzzles mags and newspapers bought and solved for you.
We buy all of the weekly magazines and bring the competitions from these to you on a Thursday. Including titles as diverse as Bella, Inside Soap, Match of the Day and OK magazine. In total we spend £72.39 on magazines and newspapers a week.
That's £313.69 a month... and £3,764.28 a year!
Yet you need never spend this amount of money!
We put all this information together, along with any answers needed to enter the competitions on a secure website just for you. Updated at 11am Monday to Saturday, Coffee Break Winner is your route to winning regularly. All for less than a £1 a week.

No more stressing about how you can afford a little luxury every month...
Sometimes I have to pinch myself... it's not supposed to be this easy to get things for FREE
Every year, for the last five years, I've got at least £20,000 worth of things for free. I'm not a famous blogger, with millions of YouTube subscribers, in fact I'm no different to you. But every month, some of the UK's best known companies send me things for free and I'd like to show you how to get them to do the same for you.
How Christine Williams went on 33 holidays – for free!
Christine Williams is the perfect example. She was sceptical at first, but she put us to the test, and to this day she’s had 33 different holidays - for FREE
To be precise, she's been on 33 holidays as a result of reading and applying what she discovered in my unique service!
Many have been weekend breaks in sunny (!!) old Britain. Pampering and relaxation retreats...sight-seeing tours...health spa breaks...even all expenses paid trips to high profile movie premieres!
A good number though, have been amazing fairytale-type getaways. She even managed to have one of these lovely companies pick up the bill for her lavish, three-week honeymoon in the Caribbean! It's true. But that's just the beginning. Read on...
Over the course of just a few years she's picked up literally hundreds of these items. Including...
A five-day all expenses paid trip to New York, complete with five-star accommodation... a VIP trip to San Francisco for five nights... a cruise on the Carnival Legend's maiden voyage… breaks in Oslo, Dublin, Edinburgh, Bruges, London, Devon… half a dozen health breaks at luxurious spas, and more.
But holidays are only the beginning. To list everything here would take (literally) 10 pages all by itself. So what I'll do is give you a small snapshot of the luxuries she's picked up...
- A dishwasher and tumble dryer
- Three TVs including a home cinema system
- A free Sky TV subscription
- A year's supply of Haribo sweets (for the children, of course!)
- A limited edition Tissot watch
- £650 cash
- A mountain bike
- An £11,000 fitted kitchen
To name just a few!
And it’s not just Christine who has enjoyed the fruits of her success; her children were invited to the Disney Channel Awards ceremony – complete with backstage passes, of course!
As you can imagine, these are the things that really stand out. Sure, getting all those luxury items for free is great and can improve the quality of your lifestyle no end. But as Christine explained to me…
Meeting celebrities, chatting with them and in general rubbing shoulders with the VIPs is so precious. And when the children meet their idols, the look on their faces is priceless! This is dream stuff. And forget money, you can't buy that sort of thing.
Introducing Simply Prizes - the UK's biggest, best and easiest guide to great giveaways
I want to introduce you to my community called Simply Prizes. Every single month, our select group of members are guaranteed access to no less than 5,000 individual giveaways worth at least £1 MILLION. The sheer quantity of stuff on offer is staggering.
And it’s all through winning competitions. Now I know there’s a HUGE amount of scepticism surrounding the whole competition thing. It’s not surprising really. There's a lot of nonsense out there...
But this plays right into our hands here at Simply Prizes. Because of this natural scepticism, most people don’t even bother entering competitions because they don’t think they are going to win, or that the prizes are genuine. This means that for our members, who know exactly which competitions to enter and how to find them, the odds of claiming prize giveaways are hugely increased...
And these aren't just your average, run-of-the-mill giveaways either. These are the chances to take home life’s little luxuries that few of us could regularly afford.
For example, some of the top-of-the-line goods recently uploaded to the Simply Prizes website include:
- A Mini Cooper
- A 55-inch Samsung 4K UHD Smart TV, Wireless Headphones, an iPad
- Air and a Sonos Sound Bar
- Family holiday's to Dubia and Orlando
- £10,000 cash
- A Vauxhall Corsa
- A trip to watch the British & Irish Lions in New Zealand
- A Lunar Campervan worth over £50,000
- An incredible 14-night adventure to Costa Rica
- A Helsinki Air Jet Hot Tub
- Holiday's to Jamaica, The Seychelles, Bahamas and Antigua
- A Fridge Freezer & Dishwasher worth £1,900
And that’s just a handful of them.
It might be easy to find the odd competition here and there, but our members get access to over 300 opportunities like this EVERY SINGLE WEEK!
And our members win, and win regularly. Just like Anne, who received an amazing phone call in time for Christmas...
I didn't believe it when I had the phone call last week but today I received a cheque for £2,000 from a Black Friday competition with Capitol. Christmas is now sorted. I haven't been able to work since 2013 and always feel bad that hubby earns while I do the spending but now I can properly treat the whole family MYSELF !!
And Marian, who won the trip of a lifetime for her and her husband...
I won a great prize and last week my husband and I spent a fantastic time in Toronto, Canada. Marian - Prize Winner
We had free flights, accommodation and VIP tickets to Bestival - a music festival held in Woodbine Park, Toronto. This was fantastic and we had a great fun time even 'getting married again' in the Inflatable Church!!! (see attached photo)
We got Henna Tattoos and had lots to drink and VIP places to sit and listen to some great music.
We were allowed to extend our visit so extended for a week which allowed us to visit all sorts of places. We took a sightseeing bus tour of the city and found out lots of information and could disembark at any points. We also managed a trip to Niagara Falls and took the slightly wet trip on the Hornblower boat to get really close. On our way back from the Falls we stopped at Niagara-on-the Lake town and I found all the shops here fascinating and managed to spend in quite a few.
The next stop on the trip was the winery and it amazed me that you can do a degree course on the subject. One of our days was spent discovering Kensington Market and Chinatown where we ate in a fantastic chinese restaurant and had some amazing food. Shopping in the Eaton Centre was worthwhile and I actually got my husband to purchase some items in Saks on Fifth Avenue!
As you can see we packed a lot into the week but feel there is still so much more to do and see in Toronto and would love to return one day.
All in all it was a GREAT HOLIDAY.
Just imagine being able to jet off on a holiday like that, without it costing you a single penny!
Because let me tell you…
Entering competitions is, quite simply, the best and easiest way that I know of to fill your home full of luxuries… pocket cash lump sums…drive around in brand new cars…relax on sun-soaked Caribbean holidays…and in general, live a life of style, comfort and luxury.
They’re incredibly exciting, too! As far as I’m concerned, nothing else beats the thrill of receiving a phone call or letter out of the blue telling you that you’ve just won first prize.
Especially when that first prize is an all-expenses paid holiday of a lifetime like Simply Prizes member Sandra…
I've recently got back from Las Vegas after winning an amazing holiday by just filling my name and address details online!
The competition was through guardian.co.uk, courtesy of Paramount Pictures UK and I won a 5 night holiday for 2, staying in a luxury suite at the Hilton Hotel, Las Vegas , a helicopter flight, entrance to Stratosphere and $300 spending money.
Sandra, Milton Keynes
A fantastic prize – and just imagine taking that phone call when youre at the office or picking up the kids on the school run.
Now I know what you’re thinking; something like this would never happen to me, or you have to be super lucky to win prizes like this. Perhaps you’ve entered one or two competitions in the past and not won anything, or you don't know anyone who has ever won a competition.
That's not surprising. Firstly less than 2% of the population ever enter competitions, and an even smaller percentage of them enter regularly. But that's the key to winning - you need to enter competitions every week. If you only enter one or two a year, the chances of winning are really small, but enter them more often and you could join Angela from Lincolnshire and be holidaying for FREE this year.
I won a trip to California, with flights to LA... a limousine transfer to my accommodation in Hollywood. I felt so special I had to pinch myself to prove it wasn't a dream. The whole experience has given me a thirst for life.
And this is where Simply Prizes comes in. As the comping phrase goes, ‘you’ve got to be in it to win it’ and with the sheer number of quality competitions we find for you, members of our club are the first in line for amazing prizes like these.
That’s because with Simply Prizes membership you get:
- Access to 300 brand new competitions a week – that’s over 1,300 a month
- Three competition updates per week covering magazine, web, social media, creative, shop competitions and more
- Competitions that are thoroughly researched by our team so you have complete peace of mind that you’re not passing your details to fraudulent companies
- Access to our unique password protected website where you can keep track of all your competition entries and pick the prizes you most want to win
And that’s just the start...
Here at Simply Prizes, we do our research very, very carefully. This isn't something we throw together. On the contrary, we have one of the most extensive networks of contacts available.
It's like having friends in high places who keep giving you the inside line on all the best, little-known competitions available. To be precise, you're hiring a staff of dedicated researchers who spend their days trawling the supermarkets and high streets, searching hundreds of little-known websites and scouring all the popular (and obscure) magazines looking for the latest, best and not-so-well-known competitions.
And when we say all the obscure magazines we do mean all; our team of researchers check over 300 magazines to find which ones carry competitions. We visit all five of the major supermarkets, plus chains like the Co-op. We check hundreds of different websites (sometimes several times a week) and then spend time visiting all the shops on the high street to track down just about every competition possible.
We also pride ourselves on keeping ahead of the latest comping trends, with our updates covering social media competitions too. You might think social networks are only good for checking out what old school friends are up to, or for watching cute cat videos, but sites like Facebook and Twitter are a goldmine of competitions – if you know where to look of course!
For example, recent Facebook competitions have included a trip for two to Barcelona, a bundle of goodies worth £2,839 and high street vouchers worth £100s.
....Recent Twitter competitions included a £4,000 wedding dress, an Xbox and a 4K TV.
And because most of them open and close within a few days, or even a few hours, having our team’s expert knowledge and know how to track them down is absolutely vital. Just ask Heather...
I had a fab twitter win last night from @davelackie fantastic Lancome products worth over £500
I keep shaking my head and saying to myself I still cant believe I won something like that!
My favourite wins this year are a Fridge freezer from facebook and £1000 to spend on AEG goods from the co-op, I got a new washing machine, oven and hob.
I have also won a Luxury 5 star weekend in Edinburgh with travel and concert tickets, a year’s supply of Hollands pies, a Rodia makeup set and £300 Hoeseason holiday voucher...
They’re some fab hauls aren’t they? And they were all claimed by simply clicking ‘Like’ or RT on Facebook or Twitter!
To put it simply (no pun intended!), here at Simply Prizes we provide ALL the tools you need to win- and win regularly!
Hi, my name is Sammy, and I’m Editor of Simply Prizes. I’ve been comping now for a good few years and have won some absolutely fantastic prizes. I first got into the world of competitions after appearing on a TV game show with a friend where we were lucky enough to win £17,000. That gave me a real buzz for winning and I haven’t looked back since
Some of my top prizes have included holidays, cash and items for the house. And one of the most unusual prizes I was lucky enough to win was a £3,000 all singing, all dancing toilet. If you ever visit the Shangri-La hotel at the Shard, use the bathroom – I have the same loo!
But my favourite sorts of prize wins are those for money-can’t-buy experiences; the sorts of things you literally can’t get anywhere else. My son has been lucky enough to run out with the ball at the Rugby Sevens final and I met Ollie Murs (along with a load of teenagers! Ahem!). My daughter has met her Cbeebie’s idol Alex and my brother and I walked the red carpet at the Classic Brit Awards. All these things would never have happened if I hadn’t been ‘in it to win it’!
Our recipe for success is simple...
1) We make you 5,000 times more likely to win
By entering a single competition you can immediately put yourself ahead of 98% of the population. But with Simply Prizes you can times that advantage by an immediate 5,000
With over 300 brand new competitions a week, over 1,300 a month, Simply Prizes gives you more chances of winning than any other website we know of. As mentioned, many of the competitions have multiple prizes to be won too, we estimate that equals well over 5,000 individual prizes up for grabs through Simply Prizes every month.
Whilst putting your name down for one prize is unlikely to yield results, increase this number to 5,000, and you can see how regular winning becomes almost inevitable!
We even send you advice about cunning little tricks you can use to maximise your chances of winning these prizes too!
2) We find the very best, little-known competitions that few people have access to
Obviously, the lesser known the competition...the better your odds are of winning.
And that’s where our research team become priceless. Think about it, not everyone interested in comping could possibly, thumb through dozens of magazines and hundreds of websites, every week, as well as monitor all of the social media channels - no matter how motivated they are.
For a start, it would cost over £200 a month to buy all the magazines. Then it takes hour after hour of searching and clipping out the featured competitions. And most comps require you to at least answer one or more questions. That's a heck of a task in itself.
Then there are the websites. Even if you knew all those web addresses and pages to visit, how long would it take to search for and pick out those that interest you most. And then there’s our association with actual competition promoters. That's something it would be impossible for an individual person to build and develop. How's that for an advantage?!
Add to that all of the shop to win competitions we find by scouring the supermarkets and high street and you can see why Simply Prizes is "worth its weight in gold".
Now just wait and watch the prizes roll in.
What a difference these competitions could make to you. Hundreds, maybe even thousands of pounds in saved money on items you would ordinarily have to pay for. Or things that you would otherwise never even dreamed of.
TV – any half decent one these days will almost certainly set you back anywhere from £300-£1,500 for a top of the line model…
Holiday – £300 + for a last minute deal/steal. Otherwise, you’re looking at figures in the region of £499 per person for European destinations… all the way up to £1,500 or more for US and Caribbean holidays…
Fridge, freezer, microwave oven, washing machine, home furnishings. You’re talking at least £50 for a microwave alone. If you had to replace your fridge or freezer or both, that’s at least £500 at a conservative estimate, right?
Or how about some of the things you just like, that you don’t necessarily need to buy, like an iPad, a laptop, toys for the children or the grandchildren, jewellery, clothes, even meals out and drinks… totalled up over the course of a year. That works out to a pretty tidy sum, doesn’t it?
Absolutely! Now imagine you could just claw back, let’s say, £800 in holiday costs plus save another £400 – £800 on spending money. There’s an extra £1,200 – £1,600 right there.
And that’s chicken feed to what you really could get with Simply Prizes. We’re fully confident you could win dozens of prizes over the course of the year.
That’s not hype. This has been proven time and time again by our members. Just like Hazel…
...in December I had an email from Coast Magazine, I had won holiday vouchers to the value of £1500 for Cofton Country Holidays in South Devon. I can use the vouchers as I please so have already booked one weeks holiday for me and my husband , daughter , son in law & two grandchildren & still have enough vouchers left for another weeks holiday, hopefully taking my son and his family with us then . How fabulous is that to finish the year off. Couldn't believe my luck xx
What could you do with that extra money these prizes would release?
You could use it to...
- Pay off your credit card bills or other pressing financial matters...
- Re-decorate your home from top to bottom...
- Take the dream holiday you've always promised yourself...
- Start a hobby you've always wanted to pursue, but never had the funds to do so...
Just enjoy the added security of having this extra money sitting in your bank account should anything arise.
All you need to do is reserve your place now, no commitment needed, and you’ll get instant access to the Simply Prizes community. You’ll be able to log on to our website and start entering fantastic competitions straight away.
Full back up and support from our entire team.
When you become a member of Simply Prizes, you are becoming part of a small and tight-knit network.
We pride ourselves on offering you friendly, helpful advice, as well as privileged access to our valuable years of experience. Ask us questions. Make suggestions. You’ll be able to contact us directly between 9am and 5pm, Monday to Friday.
You won’t end up in some 20-minute phone jam or an automated phone answering system either – your calls will come directly to our office. We treat our members the way we wish others treated us – with gracious respect, fast answers and friendly advice. If you have a problem we want to know about it. Our team is based in our family run office in Leamington Spa.
If you’ve got questions that need “live” help to get resolved, we are there to help. Not only can you contact us by phone, but we’re available on email too, and we’ve even got an exclusive Facebook community where you can speak to me directly in the evenings or at weekends.
That’s why you should give it a go now, while it’s still fresh in your mind. The sooner you start entering competitions, the sooner you can start to win. There’s an old comping adage that is still as true now as it was over 100 years ago when companies first started using competitions to attract new customers… ‘You have to be in it, to win it!’
And there is absolutely no risk involved. You can try out our service, put us to the test, and enter all of our competitions for the next three months. And if you don’t agree that Simply Prizes can help you live a life several notches above your current one, that’s fine. In fact, if for any reason you decide you don’t want to continue with your membership, that’s ok…
Just give us a ring or send an email within your first three months and we will cancel your membership immediately and refund you in full if you want. That’s right you can ask for your membership fees back and we will return them to you, no quibbles or questions.
But my strong hunch is that you won’t do that. I’m betting that once you see, first-hand the variety, quality and quantity of prizes available, you’ll be only too happy to push on with your membership of the Simply Prizes community.
Why we’re different to “other” competition websites
Entered competitions from another website before but never won a prize? Nowadays there are a lot of “free” competition websites out there, where big prizes are promised, yet the odds of winning them are extremely small. That's because these "free" websites make their money by featuring affiliate competitions in their listings. These are competitions that are run simply to collect your details and sell them on to other companies.
Not only will entering affiliate competitions result in your inbox being full of spam and see you spending the day fighting off sales cold callers, but most affiliate competitions are promoted across so many websites that your chances of winning are very low.
But here at Simply Prizes we’re different. We promise NEVER to put an affiliate competition in our listings, and we will only list competitions where the company promise never to share your email address. We pride ourselves on only ever listing competitions from genuine promoters, and our team make sure they check the full terms and conditions of any giveaway thoroughly before they are listed. This is why our members win, and win regularly!
We pride ourselves on the quality of our competition research. It’s what makes the difference and helps you to win more often. We have a dedicated research team who search the high street, comb all the supermarkets, trawl the internet and buy magazines and papers to find new prizes every day. This all takes a lot of time and effort, it’s also expensive.
But I think you will be surprised at how little membership to Simply Prizes costs. In fact, it’s less than HALF the price of just one of the many glossy magazines we buy for you.
Simply Prizes costs just £1.29 a week for EVERYTHING…
There’s a bespoke members-only website that allows you to track the individual competitions you enter. The listings are updated three times a week to give you access to the newest competitions around, plus you get advice and support from me, a dedicated and experienced comper.
Three months to make your mind up or your money-back!
But I don't want you to just take my word for it. We want you to be sure that Simply Prizes is right for you, so how about this? Reserve your place today, without committing to anything and get three months to try the service. Enter as many competitions as you like, read my top tips and just see what we are like before having to make a commitment.
If at any stage during these three months you decide that Simply Prizes isn't for you, just let us know and we will cancel your membership and refund you all your membership fees if you want. And we've been publishing Simply Prizes since 1998, that's over 20 years, so you can be confident that we aren't a here today, gone tomorrow company.
All my advice and any prizes you have won will be yours to keep for free. No quibbles, questions or admin fees, just a simple 'thank you' for giving us a go.
So, there you have it, you have nothing to lose by reserving your membership today. Join now and see how comping and winning prizes could change your life forever, just like it did mine.
I look forward to hearing your winning stories very soon!
Editor of Simply Prizes
PS. On the previous pages you've seen the evidence. Our members have proved this beyond any doubt. It really IS possible for you to live a life of style, luxury and comfort... if you choose. All that remains is for you to make that choice. Average life? Or a life of unlimited style, comfort, luxury and excitement?
As you've seen, there's no hard work involved. And if for some reason you want to cancel your membership, you get all your membership payments back without questions or hassles, up to three months - even if you've won some prizes and cancel on your last day of membership! I couldn't possibly be any fairer.

How to LEGALLY hack this smartphone giveaway goldmine!
It takes just 3 steps!
Get a private message on your phone
Choose from over ONE HUNDRED prizes worth £250, £500, £1,000 or more! At least £100,000 worth per week!
Hit the 'like' or 'follow' button
You cannot beat it...
The feeling of getting paid for doing almost nothing.
Imagine waking up one morning to discover you're due to receive £1,000 in tax-free cash... £2,300 worth of jewellery... or a Nintendo Switch...
That would be awesome, wouldn't it?
Yet some people in the UK have this experience not only once, but multiple times!
Month after month...
Sums of £250... £3,500... £10,000...
Luxury home decor... TVs... cameras... laptops... smartphones...
And it's not down to luck.
It's because they know a legal way to hack into an online fund worth millions per year.
And it doesn't take any skill.
It's just a case of a few clicks on a smartphone app every Saturday.
This puts them in line for ONE HUNDRED luxuries and cash pay-outs ever single week.
With your permission, I'd like to show you how this works, without you taking a risk with your money.
See how easy it is to get things for free...
This source of giveaways is an absolute GOLDMINE!
For over 100 years, running competitions has been a major marketing strategy for UK companies.
Competitions are an easy way to get your business or product noticed. Cheaper than regular advertising, with far more reach.
This is why there are hundreds of competitions every day on the radio and TV, as well as in newspapers, magazines, websites and social media.
Most people only enter one whenever a prize catches their eye.
They don't usually win, because the odds are stacked against them.
Really, it's just potluck.
But not for a group of people known as 'compers'.
These are people who jam the system so that it's highly likely to pay out in their favour.
They do this by seeking out hundreds of competitions every week.
These add up to THOUSANDS of winning opportunities in a year.
And their strategy works.
They win lots of prizes - and regularly too!
For instance, here's what The Telegraph newspaper recently reported:
"You can make a small living from competitions - if you enter, and win, enough of them."
My name is Lizzie Riley, and for almost three decades I've been helping compers tap into the huge bank of money, holidays and luxury goods given away each year.
I started with Winner's Friend in 1998, worked on Simply Prizes and then Coffee Break Winner, so I know what makes a great comping service.
But today I want to show you something new... something for people who love comping but don’t want to be entering competitions all the time.
People who want a quick and simple, once-a-week way to win.
What I'm about to show you offers a largely UNTAPPED source of prizes that's easier to win and much easier to enter than the usual giveaways.
You see, many companies have been hit financially by the pandemic.
They cannot afford to risk money on adverts that may not work.
So instead they're turning to social media competitions.
After all, it costs nothing to put up a post on Instagram offering a prize in return for a 'like', 'follow' or tagging a friend.
And it helps them reach potentially thousands of people for free.
This is why the number of these competitions have increased tenfold since the beginning of the Covid 19 pandemic.
For instance, there are now hundreds of Instagram competitions listed every week.
Prizes include cash, Amazon vouchers, high-end beauty and perfumes, holidays and home luxuries.
Over the weeks, these add up quickly into an enormous prize pool worth many thousands of pounds.
And it's so EASY to enter them.
Just a few taps on the app!
Instagram is an app on your smartphone. So all you have to do is press LIKE, SHARE or TAG a friend!
It means you can enter the cream of UK competitions in a few quick taps, without having to buy the product, answer a brain teaser, or think up a slogan.
And you can do this from anywhere that you have your phone!
There's only one downside...
Social media competitions are notoriously hard to search for - especially on Instagram.
It can take a lot of time and effort to find decent prizes.
Even when you find one, you need to make sure that you're eligible to enter in the UK.
Then you need to check that the competition is still running, as many open and close within days.
There are so many 'giveaways' where the prize is very low value, yet you're expected to carry out an unreasonable number of steps to be entered.
There are also giveaways which are not actually giveaways at all - in fact, they're posts from Amazon sellers trying to grab our attention!
This can be VERY frustrating!
Which is where I come in.
Let me find you £100,000 worth of Instagram prizes every week
When people first discover 'comping', they often go to one of the huge prize database sites that list competitions for free.
But these prize-finding sites are free for a reason.
They exist to collect data about you which they can sell to other companies.
They mix 'real' competitions with data-collection ones that have no genuine prize.
You'd be lucky to find 10 decent comps per week - and most likely end up being spammed or harassed by sales calls.
This is why we created the Prize Studio.
We don't give any money or information to data collection companies.
Instead, for a very small subscription fee, my team of researchers specialise in finding the very best Instagram competitions.
We constantly track, search and monitor for the latest giveaways...
We filter out the not-so-good prizes...
We spot the ones that are phony marketing tricks...
We ditch the ones where British people are not eligible...
We ignore the ones with no closing dates, or that have already closed...
And then we present 100 competitions worth up to £100,000 in total each and EVERY week
That's £430,000 worth of prizes a month.
Or an incredible £5.2 million a year!
Very few people could possibly find and enter that many competitions on their own.
And even if they did, it would take hours every day.
They'd hit so many dead ends with competitions that had already closed, looked a bit dodgy or that weren't for UK residents.
But at the Prize Studio, we do all that work for you.
All you have to do is...
1. Check your inbox for an alert from me every Saturday.
2. Choose which prizes you want to win.
3. Then press 'like', 'follow' or tag a friend (or sometimes all three).
In less than 30 minutes, you'll be in line to win amounts like £200, £500, £1,000 or even £10,000 in cash...
Or you could bag yourself goodies like hotel spa breaks, TVs, gadgets, luxury furniture, bikes, and Amazon vouchers.
And to PROVE how easy it is, I'd like to give you THREE MONTHS to try it, risk free...
If, for any reason, you decide that Prize Studio isn't for you; just let us know within the first three-months and we'll refund all your membership money, in full, no questions asked, just a thank you for giving us a go.
See how it works, then decide whether it's for you!

Imagine being in line for ALL of these - and that's in-less than two weeks, never mind across many months.
Think of how high your chances are of winning something compared with entering the odd one or two per week!
This is how you make your own 'luck'
It's all a numbers game.
By constantly entering competitions, you push up the odds of winning £200, £500, £2,000 or even £10,000.
That could be enough to wipe out a debt... splash out on some clothes... put towards a new car... or stick in your savings account for a rainy day.
And it's not blind luck.
You won because you entered so many competitions, it was bound to happen at some point...
And because you're doing it every week... it's bound to happen again...
That's what my service the Prize Studio does for you.
We do all the legwork, scouring Instagram for competitions, finding over 100 new ones, every week: with an average value of over £100 each.
And because it's on Instagram, it's super easy to enter.
No filling in postcards... no dialling up premium-rate phone numbers... no thinking of clever lines... no puzzle solving...
Just a few clicks on the app and you're done!
What's more, it's always free to enter.
And there's another huge advantage too...
Boost your chances with little-known competitions
Every day, there are new Instagram competitions. But most go under the radar of the people who don't use social media, don't have Instagram or aren't compers.
The majority of people in the UK NEVER get to hear about them.
What's more, Instagram competitions tend to open and close so fast that even Instagram users miss them, to keep up is a full-time job.
Take your eye off the ball and another great prize will be lost at the bottom of your feed!
But with Prize Studio you don't have to worry about that, we'll keep everything on track, ready for you to check your password protected website, once a week and spend a few minutes entering the comps you want to win.
Plus these social media giveaways give you greater odds of winning than most regular competitions; fewer people entering, the more your odds of winning increase.
Sometimes there are only a few hundred entries in total.
And occasionally, only dozens.
But at the Prize Studio we have a crack team: led by me and Sammy Fairman, editor of Simply Prizes. She's a serial competition winner, an expert in finding the little-known, short-term competitions that most people miss.
With these obscure competitions, your chances of winning skyrocket.
And when you enter over 100 of them each week, the odds massively swing in your favour.
But don't take my word for it... see for yourself!
You could start getting my weekly alerts today, risk-free, and put yourself in line for hundreds of prizes like these:
- Playstation 5
- £1,200 worth of luxury home decor and furniture
- £100 Sassy voucher, £200 Selfridges voucher and a Prada bag
- A pair of brogue ankle boots
- A £499 Kitchen Aid stand mixer
- A Cartier love ring
- An Apple Mac Book Air
- £300 and health subscription worth £129.99
- Two Gucci handbags
- A home bar including drinks and accessories
- £500 to spend at Superdrug
- A personalised cheese hamper and a year's supply of cheese
- A hamper of Lowengrip beauty products worth £180
- A Geographer's Deli Cleanse gift box for you and your friend
- £200 in cash
- An Occulus Quest virtual reality headset and carrying case
But don't take my word for it. Join us today and see what you could win in the next three months.
And all you need is an internet connection and an Instagram account.
You Don't Need to Know ANYTHING about Instagram!
Don't worry if you haven't got Instagram - it's easy to set up on your phone in minutes and you don't need to post any images or become an Instagram user. It's just a means of entering the competitions.
I'll send you a guide to setting it up - plus you can email me for help if you get stuck.
If you DO have Instagram already, but you don't want to use it for competitions, no problem!
You can easily set up a separate account just for that purpose.
After that, it's really easy.
1. Wait for our message on a Saturday...
2. Decide what prizes you want to go for...
3. Then 30 minutes later, you're done.
There is absolutely no skill or hard work involved. None of the searching, checking and dead ends that usually come with finding competitions on your own.
It's just a case of clicking a 'like' or 'follow' button, and sometimes tagging a friend.
You can do it from anywhere, anytime, as long as you have your smartphone or tablet.
We even have a bespoke database which lets you search out the prizes you want to win and tick then off when you've entered.
But why not test it out for the next THREE MONTHS and see for yourself?
You can join Prize Studio today and get all these incredible prize opportunities totally risk-free.
Enjoy a luxury lifestyle that turns your neighbours green with envy
You might have seen stories about Instagram 'influencers'.
These people live a life of luxury, getting paid by companies to take holidays, drive nice cars and dine in the best restaurants.
They're constantly getting sent freebies and showing off about it.
Well, this is your chance to join the Instagram jet set.
And you don't need to become rich or famous.
By using the Prize Studio to legally jam the system, you could enjoy the latest in entertainment technology, kitchen gadgets, expensive jewellery and gourmet treats.
You could get regular free city breaks, spa weekends and fine dining experiences.
Just imagine waking up one morning to a message saying you've won £2,000, a £500 Selfridges voucher or a virtual reality headset.
That wouldn't be bad, would it?
Certainly worth a few clicks on Instagram!
But find out yourself, join Prize Studio today and...
I'll send you over 100 high-value Instagram Comps every Saturday for three months, RISK FREE...
Just wait for my email alert every Saturday morning.
Look through the 100+ prize options to see which ones what you most want to win...
Perhaps its cash... or a mountain bike... or a PS5...
Or enter ALL of them if you like.
It will take less than 30 minutes on Instagram to enter them all.
No need to think of answers... work out teasers... or do anything more than click 'like', 'follow', tag a friend (or sometimes all three).
Do this every week for 3 months and see how easy it is.
You might not win in the first month, or even the second, but I am VERY confident that by the third month you'll have amazing news.
However, if you don't win a prize, or you have ANY reason to be unhappy with the service at all, you can get a full refund.
And as for the price for our professional prize-finding service...
Well, I think you might be surprised.
Half the price of a Lottery ticket (for MORE chance of winning prizes)
A single lottery ticket is £2. Which gives you a 1 in 45 MILLION chance of winning.
Yet for just 99p per week (take up the annual discount offer and it's even cheaper!), I’ll send you over 100 Instagram prize-winning opportunities worth up to £100,000 every week.
That's over 540 chances to win prizes every month, with far better odds of winning.
Remember, we spend our time searching for competitions on Instagram that you'd never be able to find yourself without it taking hours every day.
You also get access to a special database that helps you find the exact kind of prizes you most want. You can tick them off when you've entered them so you don't repeat yourself.
Plus you have the support of me and Sammy; whenever you need it. Just send us an email and we'll get back to you with advice and encouragement.
All for just 99p (or less) a week...
And remember, your first THREE MONTHS fee is REFUNDABLE if you decide not to continue.
Join Prize Studio now... enter all the competitions we send you... and bag that first prize...
But if it doesn't meet with your expectations, just let us know and we'll cancel your membership and give you all your money back.
I hope you join us, and I can't wait to hear about your first win!

30+ years playing the racing markets has taught me one thing for sure….
Smart money always beats dumb money over the long term….
Betting the races is a game of opinions….
It’s you against the market....
And how you make out as a racing punter will ultimately boil down to one thing – the quality of your opinions….
If your opinions suck, so will your long-term results….
If your opinions are more accurate than most – you’ll do better than most. No doubt….
Your opinion is the commodity you take to market. An opinion is all any punter has – bar the money with which to back it….
And it stands to reason that the better-informed opinions will always have the edge in the markets….
…. the smartest money will always win out across the long term….
…. those who know that little bit more will always be at an advantage over those who know that little bit less....
To win at this game you will need to know more than the next punter – and the next punter after him….
Your money needs to be smarter than their money….
And the smarter your money is – the more potent your opinions prove to be – the better the bottom-line outcome you will enjoy….
>>>> Information is king….
Your opinion is what you put to the test in the market….
Every market outcome you experience will be a direct product of how accurate your opinion was….
And any opinion is only as good as the quality of information it is based on. Information really is king in the racing markets….
The better informed you are – the more successful you will be. That’s a no-brainer….
Guessers, pin-stickers, blaggers and pseudo-experts don’t cut the mustard. Nor do punters who bet on hunches, listen to trackside whispers, or follow the money….
The racing punters who consistently do best across the long term are those armed with high-quality information. And that’s not something you can just pluck out of the ether….
The successful racing punter has his finger on the pulse of the game – studying his subject in depth. He has a better grasp and command of the detail than the punters he bets against….
He does the donkey work. He watches and rewatch races. He keeps on top of the form, he mines the data, and he puts serious time into his analysis – digging deep to winkle out golden nuggets of insight that other punters miss….
He works hard. He’s always watching. Always thinking. Always engaged with the game – and always alert to any information or developments that might lead to a promising betting opportunity….
Is it any surprise his opinions are better-informed than most? After all, in what walk of life does hard work not pay off?
Smart money always beats dumb money over the long term. Smart money always has the edge. Always….
And becoming a smarter punter is a relatively straightforward process. There’s nothing stopping you from getting started on that process right now. You can go about it two ways….
You can do it on a purely DIY basis – put in the time, work hard, and build your knowledge base and experience over time….
Or you can find someone to help you – an experienced and qualified analyst prepared to put in the time and do the work for you….
That way you can piggyback on what that analyst already knows and what he can tell you going forward – always learning as you go and sharpening your own tools along the way….
Which way you choose to do it is your business. But do it you must. Either that or stay out of the markets….
Because if you’re not striving to work from the best-quality information possible, you’re going to find it hard work making the racing markets pay….
That much I can tell you for certain – and that certainty comes from hard-won and expensive experience….
Your personal racing consultant….
They say it takes 10,000 hours to develop expertise – and that’s probably a conservative estimate….
Even if you study horse racing for 20 hours a week it’s going to take 10-years to bank that time. 10 years! And whose got 20 hours to spare?
When you need a legal opinion, you don’t go to law school. Instead, you consult a lawyer. You piggyback on his knowledge and experience. That’s the smart move….
Think of me – Nick Pullen – as your personal racing consultant….
I’ve already put 10,000 hours into the racing game – and the rest. And I continue to put in the time – all year round….
I’m a full-time racing analyst dedicated to digging out quality information that big-field handicap punters can put to profitable use in the markets….
>>>> I can help you….
My name is Nick Pullen….
I’ve been betting the horses for 30+ years – and since 2007 I’ve written the Against The Crowd (ATC) service….
My column goes out Monday to Friday and caters to racing punters who bet the big-field handicaps on the flat and over the jumps – the toughest betting puzzles on the racing programme….
My simple objective is to provide readers with high-quality information, insights, advice, and opinions they can put to profitable work in the big-field handicap markets. No more. No less….
I reckon I do a pretty good job of it. My track record says as much. And I reckon plenty of readers would agree….
But that doesn’t mean I’m an infallible genius who knows everything and always gets everything right. Not at all. I’m far from that….
I don’t mind telling you straight off the bat that I’m wrong a hell of a lot more times than I’m right….
That’s always been the case and it always will be….
I don’t pick the winner of every race I target for bets at the weekend or at the big midweek Festivals….
I don’t get it right with every observation I make….
I don’t get it right with every opinion I share….
I don’t get it right with all the advice and recommendations I give....
I get plenty wrong. But I don’t worry about it. And I certainly don’t apologise for it….
Getting things wrong is part and parcel of playing the game. It’s par for the course. To be expected….
After all, we’re talking about horse racing – a sport that revolves around largely unpredictable half-ton animals made of flesh, blood, muscle, and bone running around a field….
Nobody gets everything right. Nobody could hope to….
The important thing is to get enough right at sufficiently good prices to make the game pay across the long term….
And I most certainly get that job done. I’ve been doing it for 15-years. And I can tell you for sure that my readers – past & present would happily confirm that….
But, at the end of the day, they don’t need to. Because it’s all a matter of incontrovertible record….
>>>> Take Arecibo, for instance….
At the start of the 2021 flat season Arecibo was officially rated 91….
You might recall, he had come over from France to join David O’Meara’s yard back in the spring of 2019 – starting off his British career at Ripon on a mark of 100….
Two runs in, O’Meara gelded the horse and two runs after that Arecibo won a C3 handicap at Ayr off a mark of 91….
It was the only time he won for the O’Meara yard in 24 runs. It’s fair to say he’d been difficult to win with. The 6yo was headed into a new season with a career record that read just 3 wins from 36 runs @ 8.3% on the turf flat….
But he was very much on my radar – and I told my ATC readers why….
I also alerted readers to the fact that Arecibo had something else in his favour. He’d recently moved to Robert Cowell’s yard….
I pointed to Cowell’s work with another cast-off sprinter – Raucous. He’d looked like a horse on a terminal decline heading into Cowell’s yard. But within 18-months he’d banked a stack of prize money for his new connections and gone very close to winning a Wokingham and a Stewards Cup – the top races on the sprint handicap scene….
I gave my readers the bottom line….
It turned out to be very good information for readers who took note….
Arecibo won first-time up for Cowell at Newmarket – sent off at 9/2. He won again at the same track in May – sent off at 85/40….
Then he really hit his straps – going very close in the G1 King’s Stand Stakes at Royal Ascot. He finished 2nd that day sent off at 28s. But he’d been much bigger that same morning and was easy to back at prices as big as 50s….
He placed next time at Sandown sent off at 8s. Later in the same season he placed again in France….
It was quality information that I gave to ATC readers – even if I say so myself. It was information you could put to profitable use in the market. And many ATC readers did just that….
One of them – TN – had this to say….
>>>> Or consider Copper Knight….
Arecibo was no flash in the pan job….
Tim Easterby’s Copper Knight was another horse I was very interested in for the 2021 flat campaign….
Here’s what I told my readers on Monday, 12th April….
Again, it turned out to be a good quality lead for punters – one that paid dividends in the markets across the season….
Copper Knight ran 13 more times between May and the end of October – winning three times and placing in an additional four races….
Two of those wins – banked in C2 handicaps at York and Doncaster in fields of 14 and 17 – paid out at 18s and at 22s ….
So, we’re not talking about some odds-on cert dotting up in a 5-runner race against vastly inferior horses….
If you’d backed him in each of his runs during the season to the tune of 1 point each-way at SP you’d have banked a profit of 47.5 points….
That’s A1 betting business by any standards you want to apply – and it started with good-quality information….
And let’s not forget that the profit stated above is calculated to SP. Chances are you’d have got even better prices early doors, at Betfair SP or on the tote….
I don’t get everything right but – like I say – the things I do get right tend to pay well. And that’s the kind of high quality information racing punters appreciate....
Here’s what ATC reader DC told us….
>>>> Hey Jonesy was another big-priced highlight….
As part of the ATC service, I draw attention to these kinds of horses – horses ready to oblige at big prices – year-on-year….
In 2020 it was probably Hey Jonesy who provided the highlight for readers….
During lockdown and ahead of the racing restarting, I’d taken an in-depth look at Kevin Ryan’s horse and on 14th May I reported my conclusions. I told readers this….
My assessment was spot-on and paid big dividends….
Just five weeks later Hey Jonesy struck in the Wokingham at Royal Ascot on his second run of the season. He was sent off unloved and unfancied at 18s – but had been easy to back at bigger prices earlier in the day….
Plenty of ATC readers had taken note and were on. MR, for example – who had this to say….
And AF was just one of many more who made hay that hot June day….
>>>> How we cashed in on Frankel progeny….
And ATC is not just about highlighting individual horses….
I also dig out little-known betting angles you can exploit and make profits from….
Just like the one I shared ahead of the 2021 Royal Ascot meeting – one that revolved around Frankel progeny….
Here’s what I told my ATC readers….
That was high-quality information – a pre-meeting steer that led ATC readers to profitable bets at the meeting….
Here’s what ATC reader NH had to say….
Terry weighed in too….
Nick thinks differently- that’s why I publish him….
‘Me and Nick go back 25-years. We met through work. We were both in the financial newsletter business….
Later, when I needed a racing writer, Nick was the first person I thought of….
I didn’t want the same-old-same-old. I didn’t want some hack going through the motions. I didn’t want somebody regurgitating news stories or trotting out second-hand opinions….
I wanted a racing writer with a mind of his own. Someone with self-generated thoughts and insights. Someone who can think out of the box….
I wanted a writer capable of delivering a unique and useful racing service that readers would benefit from….
Nick’s a racing fanatic – always has been. You have to be that way to produce a good service. You can’t play at it...
But the big thing about Nick is the way he thinks. He’s got his own way of going about ‘the game’ – his own way of looking at it. He thinks differently – and that’s why I publish him….’
Dave Gibson – Publisher – January 2022
>>>> Profit angles at ALL the big meetings….
Royal Ascot 2021 was no special case….
I make a point of providing betting angles and pointers ahead of ALL the big meetings – on the flat and over the jumps….
And not just any angles based on some ‘feeling’ in my gut. I don’t do guesswork. I don’t do posturing. I don’t do make it all up as I go along….
I provide high-quality information, insights, and observations – based on the cold hard facts in the historic record, the formbook, races run and the performances of horses that run in them….
…. information which will help you build informed opinions and judgments you can capitalize on in the markets….
And – let me be straightforward – an informed opinion is a definite edge in the markets. Make no mistake about that. Most punters don’t have one. That’s for certain….
For sure, every man and his dog has an opinion when pushed for one….
But most opinions aren’t worth a carrot….
The vast majority are borrowed from some third-party. Most of the rest are ill-conceived, ill-considered or the product of glorified pin-sticking….
Informed opinions are a true rarity – believe me. And getting an informed opinion is just about the smartest move any punter can make….
Of course, I’m not trying to say that everybody but me is a fool. There are quality racing punters out there – for sure….
Punters who know what they think and know exactly why they think it…
Punters who can back up their opinions and their betting decisions with arguments that hold water and which are based on facts and clever observational insights….
Punters who know the nitty-gritty of the racing game….
Punters familiar with the nuts and bolts of putting decent bets together….
Punters who can understand a form card…. Punters who can read a race…. Punters who can figure out what’s hidden between the lines….
But these punters are in a very small minority – because getting to that point – reaching that kind of level as a punter – requires a serious investment of both time and effort….
And for one reason or another most punters cannot or will not make that investment….
Some punters simply don’t have the time to devote to the subject – fair enough….
Others are just plain idle and choose to play the racing in the same way they might play a fruit machine – put the money in, press the button, watch the reels spin, and see what happens….
No problem. I’m a live-and-let-live kind of guy. People can play the game however they want. It makes little or no difference to me….
But I stand by what I said earlier. I won’t be shifted on it….
How you make out as a racing punter will ultimately boil down to one thing – the quality of your opinions….
And the quality of your opinions will only be as good as the quality of the information you’re working from. It’s as simple as that….
Let me put it another way: a plant grown in poor soil won’t produce good flowers – if indeed it grows at all….
265.7 points to the good....
Every weekend - and at all the big midweek festivals - I stick my head above the parapet and highlight my selections for all the top-level big-field handicaps....
I get plenty wrong. You can rely on that. And that's always going to happen because I put up plenty of horses at big prices....
A good proportion of those get beaten. But that's par for the course. Losers are part and parcel of playing the long-term 'value' game....
I don't worry about losers. I don't care about strike rates. I don't care about dry spells. When I hit a loser, I simply move on to the next race....
The objective is to hit enough winners (and/or placers) at sufficiently good prices to get in front on the bottom line across the long-term....
And ATC's track record reveals that I get the job done....
Had you backed every selection to the tune of 1-point e/w at advised prices from the start of 2016 - you'd have banked a profit of 265.7 points....
And bear in mind that those figures relate only to the selections I put up at weekends and at the big midweek festivals....
The information and opinions provided as part of ATC’s standard day-to-day coverage resulted in many more winners and winning opportunities over the same period….
>>>> ATC = high-quality information you can use….
I’ve been writing ATC now for 15-years….
Racing services that go out 5-days per week simply don’t stick around that long unless they’re providing information that punters value and can put to profitable use….
Punters aren’t stupid. They know rubbish when they see it….
It doesn’t take long before they see through some slick-talking bullshitter. Punters know real from fake….
They know when an analyst is putting in the proper work and doing the hard yards. And they know when some clown is just going through the motions….
There’s an extensive archive on the ATC website where you can go back years and look at all the high-quality information the service provides – and which readers have put to work in the race markets….
I could probably spend the next 3-weeks doing nothing else but cutting and pasting all the best bits – putting together a highlight reel for the ages….
I could tell you about all the many clever observations and unique insights I’ve made about specific horses over the years – observations that led readers to multiple winners at big prices….
I could tell you all about the research and analysis I do and all the profitable betting angles I’ve shared with readers – angles based on rigorous interrogation of a unique 25-year dataset I personally compile, maintain, and study in forensic detail….
I could tell you about all the unique stats I compile, produce, and distribute in ATC – stats you won’t find anywhere else…. stats that illuminate complex situations…. stats that provide a window on hard-to-solve races…. stats that inform productive thinking…. stats that spark ideas…. stats that point the way to profitable bets….
I could tell you about all the heavily-fancied favourites I’ve picked holes in days ahead of the race – correctly advising readers on exactly why they won’t win and why they should be opposed in the betting….
I could tell you about all the winners I’ve put up in the big weekend races – and at the major midweek festivals….
And not just any winners. I’m talking winners at BIG prices. Dozens of them across the years at 16s, 20s, 25s, 28s, 33s, 50s – and bigger….
It might sound like I’m bragging. Or talking out of the back of my head. But it happens to be the truth. And it’s all a matter of record….
Don’t get me wrong. There have been plenty of losers along the way. Loads of them. Way more losers than winners….
And that’s the way it’s always going to be because I play the big-field handicaps (my area of specialization) – the most competitive races on the programme and the toughest betting puzzles that punters are confronted with….
And I never play it safe. I never back favourites. I always oppose the market. I always take on the most fancied horses….
I’m a contrarian punter – always have been and I always will be. I go against the grain. I swim against the tide. I march to the beat of a different drum….
I don’t follow the money. I find ways to oppose it. My modus operandi is always to seek out the value option in the market….
In every big-field handicap I target, my mission is to seek out the horse I believe is a ‘live’ contender – but which is underestimated, overlooked, and overpriced by the market….
That’s the kind of horse I like to bet in the big-field handicaps. The right kind of horse trading at the wrong price – a price that underestimates its true chances of winning….
I get it wrong frequently. But I get it right too. At BIG prices….
And over the years – with straightforward tips at weekends and at all the midweek festivals – I’ve got it right frequently enough at the right kind of prices to get in front on the bottom line across the long-term. And that’s no mean feat….
Yes, I could spill a great deal of ink telling you all that stuff in the kind of detail that might put you – or me – to sleep. But I won’t subject you to it….
Instead, I’ll let just a few of my readers take the stage for a moment – so that they can tell you in their own words what ATC is all about for them….
They do a better job of summing up what ATC is, what it provides and what it does for them than I ever could.
After all, they read ATC – Monday to Friday – every single week of the year. They know what they’re talking about….
Integrity and honesty….
“Hi Nick, I just felt I had to give you my sincere thanks for the brilliant service you offer. This is my 3rd year and it just gets better…. The integrity and honesty in your service is to be commended and long may you continue to prosper.” BS
Let’s be straightforward, a lot of racing services are run by shysters – the type of people who can’t lie straight in bed at night….
Nick’s a different class of animal and readers are often pleasantly surprised to discover a service that plays it completely straight….
No false claims. No hyperbole. No weasel words. No lies by omission. No bullshit. No bending the truth into a shape that suits….
No whooping it up when he gets something right. No shying away from reality when he gets something wrong….
Nick’s a straight-down-the-line operator – and it’s a feature of ATC that readers really appreciate….
>>>> Don’t just take their word for it….
Of course, you shouldn’t just take their word for it….
I take nobody’s word for anything. I’m not really interested in what other people have to say….
And that’s one of the reasons why ATC has enjoyed long-term success in the racing markets….
I don’t rely on third-party opinion – I prefer to do my own thinking, and I like to look at things my own way and figure them out for myself….
I suggest you take the same approach. There’s no need to rely on the judgments and opinions of others where my ATC service is concerned….
You can take a good hard look at the high-quality information ATC provides for the next 90-days – without risking a single penny….
That’s plenty of time to assess how I work. And it’s plenty of time to reach an informed opinion on the edge ATC will give you in the big-field handicap markets across the long-term….
Better still – you can undertake this 3-month assessment of my ATC service at absolutely NO-RISK – to life, limb, or finances….
I offer all new ATC subscribers a cast-iron 90-Day money back guarantee….
You can take the ATC service for the next 3-months and if you’re not entirely satisfied – for whatever reason at any time – your subscription fees will be refunded in full….
No questions asked. No quibbling. No strings. And no delays….
That’s a guarantee you can hold me to – personally….
And it gets better still….
>>>> Get a 50% discount today….
You probably think my ATC service costs a bomb….
And I can understand why you might think that way….
Like me, you’ll have seen racing services that charge members £50 a week or 100s of pounds a month….
Services that don’t offer much more than a daily text containing the name of a horse trading at a prohibitively short price – and an affiliate link to a bookie they want you to open an account with….
There’s no evidence of thought. There’s no explanation as to how any bet was reached. You’re not learning anything. You’re not getting any information or knowledge that you can take away and use in the future….
In short, you can pay thousands to be on the service for a couple of years and be no wiser about racing and no better a punter than when you started out….
But that’s not ATC. We haven’t been around for 15-years because we’ve built a business based on under-delivery or ripping people off….
That’s not how I work. It’s not how the service works. It’s not how my publisher and his back-room team work….
We believe in value for money. And that’s exactly what ATC provides – all the way down the line….
We know a lot of our readers aren’t £1,000 per bet high-rollers….
We know that a lot of our readers play recreationally and aren’t looking to be £250 per month down before a bet’s even been placed….
We know racing is a hobby for most of our readers – and that nobody’s betting to pay for an island in the Caribbean or a Lamborghini….
So we ask for a subscription fee of just £20 per month – or £4.62 a week. It’s a pint and a bag of nuts. And my ATC service is well worth that minimal investment. Across a year that works out at just £240….
But – that’s the standard deal. I want to do better than that for you. And I can – if you’re prepared to join my ATC service right now….
Join today and I can let you have an entire year's membership to ATC for just £117. That's just £2.25 a week….
And that’s no 1-year-only deal either….
Not only will you enjoy this 50% discount this year. It’s an offer that stretches across a 'lifetime'….
As long as you remain an ATC member you’ll never be asked to pay a penny more than £117 in subscription fees per year….
And that can add up to a tidy lifetime saving – for sure….
A high proportion of the ATC readership have been with me for years. Such is the quality of information I provide – readers tend to stick once they’ve discovered me….
If you prefer, you might choose our quarterly subscription option – which works out at £3.00 per week for full membership….
>>>> Put ATC to the test for 90-days – RISK-FREE….
Our money-back guarantee covers you for your first three-months….
At any time during that period – for whatever reason – you can cancel your subscription and I’ll refund any membership fees paid – in full….
There’s no catch. I want you to feel totally comfortable joining the service – and assessing the value of the information I provide Monday to Friday….
I want you to do so knowing that you’re taking no financial risk – and that you can get your money back in full if the service turns out not to be right for you….
I believe it will be right for you though. Proper racing punters with a deep interest in the racing game tend to love what I do on the ATC service. There’s no other service out there quite like it. That’s a fact….
Let’s just briefly recap on what you’ll be getting as an ATC subscriber….
>>>> Still here?
I can’t tell you when I’m going to pick out the next big-field handicap winner at 20s, 25s or 33s….
I don’t know when I’m going to identify a horse that’s showing me all the signs it’s going to win a big pot at some point this season….
I’m not sure which of the profit angles I’ll be revealing over the next few weeks are going to deliver most betting profit….
I don’t know where the next interrogation of my unique 25-year stats database is going to lead….
All I can tell you is this: there are some huge handicap races set to be run over the next few weeks….
As per usual ATC will be targeting them all….
I’ll be looking at those races in forensic detail pre-race….
I’ll be seeking out angles and clues – with the intention of getting an edge over the market….
I’ll be doing my contrarian thing, sticking my head over the parapet, and putting up my idea of the ‘value’ – the horses I believe are ‘live’ contenders trading at prices that underestimate their true chances of winning….
And I’ll be studying the outcome of those races very closely – in search of pointers and observations that will lead to solid future bets….
In short, I’ll be doing all I can – as your hired hand – to deliver high-quality information and analysis that you can put to profitable use in the markets….
I’ll be doing all I can to give you an edge over the punters you’re betting against….
I’ll be doing all I can to help you become a smarter and more effective punter in the markets – that’s the bottom line….
Because smart money always beats dumb money in the racing markets across the long-term. Always….
Betting the race markets for 30-years has taught me that one thing for certain….
All the best….

We welcome back All-Weather specialist Dave Bellingham today. Dave is arguably the UK’s foremost analyst on All-Weather tracks, having worked for Raceform and the Racing Post from 1997 until 2018. He now writes his own blog Sandform and continues to develop the speed ratings that made his name and reputation.
Over to Dave…
Finding An Edge – why specific track form is vital in All-Weather racing by Dave Bellingham
When All-Weather (AW) racing started in this country back in 1989, it was suggested then that you wouldn’t be able to rely on turf form being replicated on artificial surfaces, which soon became obvious. However, I would also argue that you can’t rely on form being replicated between all-weather tracks with the same surface, let alone a different one.
Now in its second year as a full-time tennis service, Ones to Watch continues to go from strength-to-strength. After a great French Open, writer Tom Wilson is really looking forward to this year’s Wimbledon.
Ones to Watch identifies up-and-coming players who could win or make the final in tennis competitions around the world, at attractive Each Way prices. Concentrating and becoming a daily service around the four Grand Slam tournaments, the Australian, French and US Opens and, of course, Wimbledon.
