Matched Betting…..The Lowdown

Matched Betting everything you need to know

Matched Betting

Bookmakers offer many free bet promotions as incentives to attract customers, matched betting makes use of these by betting on all outcomes (e.g. in a football game you bet for Team A to win and then “lay” this by betting on Team A not to win). This bet would be the qualifying bet, no money is made from this but then you receive a free bet from the bookmaker you then follow the same process again but you are using a free bet and therefore make a profit. You are not gambling and there is no risk involved.

Matched betting can seem rather daunting and complicated which is why I would recommend using one of the websites such as Profit Accumulator

set up to take you through every bet step by step and include software to calculate exactly what amount you bet and lay to ensure you do not make a mistake. These sites charge either a monthly fee or have a set up cost but I would recommend using one as mistakes could be very costly without their support.

My Experience

When a friend told me about matched betting I laughed and presumed it must be a scam, however my friend persisted and I decided to give it a try. I chose a site that offered an abundance of help with step by step video tutorials and allowed you to try out two offers for free before you sign up. I made about £30 from these two offers and signed up after. Over the following two months I completed all the initial sign-up offers allocating five hours per week on these and earned around £1500! Since then I have been completing the reload offers (many to choose from everyday), I spend around 10-15 hours per month on these and make £200-500 every month, a rather nice income top-up! I only choose the easiest most straight forward offers but if you have more time to put in you could easily earn a lot more.

My Verdict

Matched betting is no scam and is easy money however you must take time to read through offers to avoid mistakes and if you have an inclination towards gambling I would NOT recommend it. Matched betting will not make you millions but it will easily make up to £2000 every month and is tax free. Many ask why the bookmaker’s allow it to happen, the answer is they are not happy about it and constantly trying to eradicate it, i’m sure one day they will succeed so make the most of the easy money whilst it’s available! The site I started out with and found very helpful was Profit Accumulator and still use today.
