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…

October Profit: £2,966.46

So close to the 3k mark but couldn’t quite reach it. 1 more signup offer and we’d have been there! This month saw not only my highest profit month but also the point at which I smashed through the £20k overall profit mark. It’s been a hectic year but well worth it and I’ve made far more than I’d have been able to predict a year ago.   Bets of note for this month:   The last of the Paddy…

First full year of Matched Betting

First full year of Matched Betting

This weekend marks the 1st year anniversary of my journey into the world of Matched Betting. What started out as a chat down the pub with an old friend about how he paid his £300 a month rent through a ‘gambling system’ has now turned into a major source of income, usually beating the 9-5 job each month. It’s not month end yet so I havent updated the site’s overall profit figure, but I do know its going to be…
