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’. You then ‘match’ these bets on a betting exchange so as to ensure you make a nominal profit, irrespective of the actual outcome of the sporting event you are betting on. 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…

March Profit: £4,612.57

March Profit: £4,612.57

Another record breaking month as I passed the previous highest month by almost £600! March was always going to be a good month due to the Cheltenham Festival which I took off work to Matched-Bet full time over. The month started amazingly well with a £885 casino win, my highest single offer win so far. From there things compounded as I attempted more high risk casino offers. I hit a few losing streaks though, my longest being about £400 lost…

February Profit: £2232.20

February Profit: £2232.20

Another decent month. I was worried Feb might be a bit low as it’s the shortest month, I was away on holiday for a bit and most bookies reduced their offers in preparation for Cheltenham Festival. Fortunatly things were saved by a couple of cashouts on Paddy Power’s 2UP offer, William Hill’s 4 goal offer and an amazing run of luck on BGO’s risk free spins on the very last day. Offers of note: £400 from cashing out during the…

Coral VIP Program

Coral VIP Program

Today I’ll let you in on a secret.. sometimes even the experienced Matched Bettors fail! And fail I did at trying to get onto Coral’s VIP scheme. Coral, like most bookies, offer a VIP scheme for a minority of customers who enjoy greatly enhanced special offers and freebies. Whereas a typical offer might be “Bet £20 get £20”, for a VIP this offer would be “Bet £200 get £200”. Also the free spins tend to be worth £2 each rather…

January Profit: £3082.19

January Profit: £3082.19

January was a tough month for Matched Betting. Many users of the forums over on Profit Accumulator reported that they too were struggling due to the apparently lack of sports offers this month. I think this was down to the bookies tightening their belts following the Christmas holiday season and in preparation for the Cheltenham festival in March. Despite this however there was a steady trickle of risk-free offers which I used to fund a few medium risk casino and…

December Profit: £4,050.67

December Profit: £4,050.67

Tap Tap Boom! December was a record-breaking month for me as I smashed past my previous best month’s profit by well over £1k! A combination of generous Christmas offers, lucky slot wins and a massive mistake by one bookie helped me finish 2016 on a real high. Bets of particular note: £270 profit when Sunbets accidentally credited a £5 free bet as £100! I chucked it on a horse without laying and won £411 profit from a “100% up to…

November Profit: 1875.14

November Profit: 1875.14

What a month! Right up until the last weekend this was looking to be only around £1k profit, not to be knocked but still far below what I’m used to… then BOOM! Gamesys throwing away hundreds of pounds worth of bonus money with only 2x wagering across the multiple sites they operate. From this I cleared almost £400 worth of profit in just a single evening. Then on the Saturday I managed to hit one of the extra place payouts…
