Spotting the Affiliate Scammers: Part 1 – Guide Websites

Spotting the Affiliate Scammers: Part 1 – Guide Websites

As I mentioned on my previous post; when I first started there were only a couple of guide websites around which offered to link you to offers and provided information to get started on matched betting for a monthly subscription fee. Since then I’ve been amazed at how many new sites have started up all offering promises of indepth information and excellent customer support. What has been surprising is the completely different levels of quality of these sites. Some look…

Spotting the Affiliate Scammers

Spotting the Affiliate Scammers

I’ve recently returned from a week late-honeymoon abroad with my new wife. While this had a negative impact on my Matched Betting profits it did give me time to have a think about some of the other topics I’d like to talk about on this site. Back when I started Matched Betting back in 2015 there were only a few guide websites (PA, PM, OM, etc) around from which to choose from. In the relatively short period since, there’s been…

September Matched Betting Profit: £1,775.39

September Matched Betting Profit: £1,775.39

 This past month was a real slog, no major casino or sports wins and an absolute disaster with accumulators resulted in a somewhat disappointing profit compared to other months. With the football back on I decided to try “AP Accumulators”, basically doing accumulator offers but without laying any of the matches off. In theory this should give a higher average profit that if I were laying them all however alot of high profile losses for what should have been easy…

BGO announces the removal of wagering requirements on all bonus cash

BGO announces the removal of wagering requirements on all bonus cash

An interesting development and complete U-turn from a company who have continually increased wagering requirements before. It looks like ahead of the Gambling Commission’s report into various bookie activites, BGO have taken the unusual step to publically announce the end of wagering requirements. Quite how this will be implemented remains to be seen. I expect it will be something like “Bet £500 and get a free £5 cash at the end”, however at least that will be much easier to…

August Matched Betting Profit: £2898.34

August Matched Betting Profit: £2898.34

Boom! We are back with the football back on it’s been a complete sports offer money shower this month. I did very few casino offers, sticking pretty much exclusively to the Ladbrokes “Bet £10 get £10” they were throwing out each week. Tonnes of sports reload offers plus a few new bookies starting up helped generate a fantastic profit from the month. I also re-triggered all of the Gamesys Welcome Back offers which provided £375 through the wagering. If you’re…

July Matched Betting Profit: £1452.79

July Matched Betting Profit: £1452.79

Yet another month without football and things were looking bleak on the sports side. Fortunately Ladbrokes and Coral both had pretty consistent casino offers running all month which helped fill the sports gap. Towards the end of the month we had a real payday from Gamesys in the form of a free £150 with only 2x wagering and roulette counted! I walked away with £155 after the very quick wagering from this offer alone. Did you miss this offer? I…

What can you do during the quiet months?

What can you do during the quiet months?

There’s no denying that many matched-bettors are struggling at the moment. With the end of the football season and no major internation tournaments on this year it has been incredibly slim pickings for those of us not diving into the very high-risk casino offers. Saying that, there’s still a few things you can be getting on with in this temporary lull:   New account signup offers I’ll be the first to admit that I hate doing new account signups. I’ve…

June Matched Betting Profit: £903.86

June Matched Betting Profit: £903.86

June was a real rollercoaster of wins and losses for me. A complete lack of sports offers, multiple losses over casino offers and no good qualifying matches for new account signups meant this past month was my lowest since I began back in November 2015. So, where did it all go wrong?   With the end of the football season it seems alot of the bookies have gone on their summer breaks resulting in very few decent sports offers. There…

What is Matched Betting?

What is Matched Betting?

MATCHED BETTING Matched betting is the practice of employing differing offers from multiple bookmakers to generate consistent profits. By accepting welcome offer packs from a range of bookmakers and/or promotional offers, you are able to place ‘free bets’.

This is what is known as matched betting. The practice revolves…

April/May Profit: £3,764.63

My new wife & I had an amazing wedding day and lovely 3 weeks away in the sun, made even better by the fact that a large chunk was paid for by those ever generous bookies! Because of this, I was only able to matched-bet for a few weeks over these past 2 months however thanks to my biggest casino win ever, it was still very profitable!   I’ve also updated the Free Bets page with a few more offers…
