What is Matched Betting?
Please see the page “What is Matched Betting?” 🙂
How much money do I need to start with?
You can start with as little as £40. Then you keep growing your bankroll by turning more free bets into money.
Why isn’t everyone doing this?
The best way to answer this is to ask yourself… Why aren’t you doing it? Lots of people aren’t ever shown this opportunity and some people that are, have their own reasons as to why they don’t want to try it.
I have never bet before, does this matter?
No, if you haven’t bet before, you are arguably in the best position possible.
Why? Because you still have every single new account offer to turn into money.
I don’t like betting
Neither do I!
When you place matched bets, you will already know what profit you’re going to make before the event even takes place. How cool is that?
Is this legal?
In fact, a spokesman for William Hill even said the industry does not have a problem with matched betting. “There’s no illegal element,” he says. “It’s a free bet and you can do what you like”
I’m skeptical, is this for real?
The best way to prove it to yourself is to go through the steps on the “Getting Started” page.
Just remember that the longer that you put it off, you are essentially missing out on daily offers that you could be converting into money.
Does it matter where I live in the world?
The best place in the world to live for this is in the UK. This is because the UK get the best free bet and bonus offers compared to other countries. Also, betting is tax-free here.
If you are not in the UK, it is still possible to make some money from this, but not as much. This is because the offers are best for people based in the UK compared to anywhere else in the world.
There have actually been some cases of people moving to the UK just so they can profit from matched betting… How crazy is that?!
What’s the catch?
Well… there really isn’t one.
Bookmakers are like any other business, where they have to compete against each other to get customers. There are two main ways for them to do this:
1. Offering better odds
2. Giving better offers
The vast majority of people who sign up to bookmakers do not know about matched betting and will use the free bet offers and then continue to bet and lose their money to the bookmakers for a long time to come.
This is a similar concept to supermarkets offering “Loss leaders”, where they make a loss on some special offers, knowing that most people will buy more than just the special offers.
You may have also heard of getting money off your first orders with certain online shopping places… This is also the same sort of concept.
Also, banks offering you money to switch to them. The list is endless.
I have already made around £700 from the sign offers, is this still worth doing?
The sign-up offers are just the tip of the iceberg. We call it training. Every week that passes you are missing out on daily offers handed out by the online bookmakers, casinos and online bingo sites.
