November Matched Betting Profit: £1,591.60

November Matched Betting Profit: £1,591.60

This past month was pretty tough as I suspect most of the bookies get ready for their Christmas promotions. I still managed to accumulate some decent profits from lots of little sports/casino offers floating around. The experiement into AP accumulators (not laying them off) has continued to go downhill with a small loss of £20 against an estimated value of £60. I’m going to continue them through December until I reach 100 accumulators complete and then decide whether they are…

Setting Up 2 Factor Authentication On Betfair & Smarkets

Setting Up 2 Factor Authentication On Betfair & Smarkets

Almost anyone who does Matched Betting regularly will eventually end up keeping a large cash float in their exchange accounts. This money is an obvious target for hackers, don’t let them steal your cash! But wait, Can’t they only withdraw back to my own card? All of the major bookmaker and exchange sites try to limit the appeal of hacks by only letting you withdraw deposited money back to the card/account which was originally used. The theory being that it…

CMA investigation into online gambling update

CMA investigation into online gambling update

Yesterday the CMA released an update on their investigation into online gambling and the unfair practices we are all too familiar with. The entire update can be found over at: https://www.gov.uk/government/speeches/online-gambling-the-investigation-so-far-and-next-steps Some of the interesting points I picked up on: Customers typically open accounts, deposit money, and then enter into a series of interactions with the gaming operator, often within the framework of a particular promotion. This means that the consumer can potentially experience a number of restrictions and limitations…

October Matched Betting Profit: £2,173.29

October Matched Betting Profit: £2,173.29

I went away for a week during this month, because of that I’m extremely pleased with still being able to hit the £2k target on only 3/4 of the available time. A large chunk of that profit came from the generous people over at Gamesys who were handing 15o% deposit bonuses out like candy to children. Each one of these is worth an easy £50+ profit and you can get them across all of the Gamesys websites for potentially £300+…

Spotting the Affiliate Scammers: Part 2 – Tipsters

Spotting the Affiliate Scammers: Part 2 – Tipsters

Welcome to Part 2 of my guide to spotting those scams relating to matched betting out there. This week I want to focus on an area surrounding Tipsters and the tactics they use to draw you in. Incase you didn’t know, a Tipster is someone who posts a series of bets which they recommend you bet yourself. They might claim to have insider knowledge or some type of statistical model which they’ve used to identify good betting opportunities and are…

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…
