Created by Jon Kluczkowski, The Steamroller is a tipster service that specialises in using a multitude of different bet types for football games.
What is the product?
Jon Kluczkowski describes The Steamroller as slowly and steadily generating a profit, however as I shall dissect over the course of this, that statement is a long way from reality. On paper the service seems passible with The Steamroller providing tips for a number of different European Cups and Leagues from Turkish domestic Leagues to the Champions League. The bets themselves are also varied covering things like over and unders on goals, picking winners and occasionally outcomes. These selections come courtesy of thirty different systems that Jon Kluczkowski says The Steamroller’s tips are passed through, each of which contains its own set of filters that are applied to generate only the best selections. There may well be something to this as The Steamroller has a strike rate of 80.8% which is phenomenal. Unfortunately, as I shall look at below, it doesn’t necessarily make The Steamroller profitable.
What is the investment vs. the rate of return?
The Steamroller is subscription based with three options available. These are 30 days for £29.99, 90 days for £79.99 and 180 days for £149.99. As with many tipster services there is no money back guarantee in place. In terms of income, this is where The Steamroller really falls apart. In 12 months the service has achieved a loss of 1.8 points. Whilst this would possibly be acceptable for a month, when you are paying for a service you would expect it to at least cover the costs of subscription. The Steamroller fails entirely in this regard.
Does the product provide value for money?
Given the track record for the year, absolutely not.
The fact that The Steamroller is operating at a loss says everything that there is to say about it as a tipster service. It also serves as something as a cautionary tale showing that a good tipster must also be able to provide value bets in order to be profitable. This is something that even at its best The Steamroller has failed to achieve with a highest profit of 3.9 points. This would barely cover subscription costs at £100 stakes and that simply isn’t good enough. The long and short of it is that unfortunately, despite a strong system Jon Kluczkowski simply can’t deliver the most important part of a tipster service, profit.
