Frequently Asked Questions
How much money do I need to start?
You don’t need any specific amount or minimum to start. The more you begin with, the increased potential earnings faster. But we always recommend to start with what you are comfortable with.
Do I need to have any betting experience?
None, with the service you are told what to bet, how much to place, and which bookmaker has the best price. You will get used to navigating the apps or website, but you technically don’t even need to understand the picks, or the sports at all.
What’s a bankroll?
Your bankroll is the committed amount you have chosen to put into your betting balance. This is your total ‘betting bank’ which we look to build through profitable results over time.
What is a betting unit?
A unit is an identifier to tell people how much to bet. In our service's case 1 unit = 1% of your betting bankroll.
How many units should I have in my bankroll?
I recommend a 100 unit bankroll to follow my program. This is to minimise risk, in turn maximising potential gains. An example of this is: $1000 Bankroll.. / 100 units = $10 unit size. Therefore, if you receive a tip that says ‘stake: 2 units’ you would place $20 in accordance with your bankroll.
How do I create a betting account?
Through bookmaker apps, you may have heard of popular bookmakers such as Sportsbet and Bet365. You simply create an account on their website or applications. Bet With Joel is not a bookmaker.
Do I need multiple betting accounts?
When delivering tips, we advise the best odds for markets across the major bookmakers. If you want to get the absolute maximum from the service it is preferred you have multiple accounts. However not essential to success.
Can I move money between my betting accounts?
Bookmakers directly withdraw to your bank account. To change from one account to another you would withdraw back to your bank, and then deposit into another betting account/bookmaker from your bank.
How long does it take to withdraw my money from a betting account?
It varies between bookmakers. We advise to check with those bookmakers. Industry standard is 2-3 business days.
Are betting accounts secure?
All accounts/bookmakers we quote from are secure.
Which Bet with Joel package would suit my bankroll?
0-$500 = Bronze/Silver $500-$1,499 = Silver $1500-$3,99 = Gold $4000+ = Black $4000+ = Global
How do I receive my tips?
Members receive all tips via email, to the email address they provided upon signup. There is also a dedicated group for each package.
Do I receive tips every day?
Your package and current sporting events will determine how often you receive tips. You will always get the tips promised in your package per week, how they are distributed in frequency will vary over the calendar year.
I have not received any tips who can I contact?
Log into your account, ensure your email address is correct. Bronze and Silver receive picks less frequently during the week. If no tips have been received after 3-4 days email [email protected]
Should I bet on all the tips I receive?
We recommend all picks sent. However it is not essential to success.
Do I still place my bet if the odds are different to the recommended tip?
If odds have changed, or the line of a bet has changed, use due care. If minor, still take the selection for a lesser unit amount. If major, consider leaving the play as there will always be more picks. There is never a need to force a bet.
I can’t find the suggested tip what should I do?
Go back & check you have gone through all the steps to find the selection. Picks are all sent in an easy to follow format. Occasionally (although rare) markets can be taken down, or perhaps if you got the email late the event has started.
I just realised I placed my bet wrong, can I change it?
Take care when placing your bets with bookmakers, as they often do not let you change any bets. You can attempt to call the bookmaker and advise them you made a mistake.
The betting site voided my bet why did this happen?
Bets can void if the player or selection did not play. Or there was a change in that particular market that makes the market a ‘no-bet’. A void will refund your stake ($) back to your balance.
How does betting with Joel pick so many winning tips?
Joel is a full time professional sports bettor and has been for the best part of a decade. He and his team put in over 120 hours collaboratively p/w into beating bookmakers. He understands sports he picks at to a much deeper level, allowing he and his team to price markets more efficiently. This is why as a member of Bet With Joel you can beat the bookies - long term.

This return varies from package to package, month to month. Have a look at the graphs in the various packages, and begin to calculate what your unit size would be X by the units profit for that membership. That is how much you could have earned over that period being a member. Past performance does not guarantee future performance.
