    yeh, definitely.. some of the smaller bookies like 10bet, 188bet have had some great offers recently. upping their game.
    138 came out of nowhere yesterday for a cracking offer on the Liverpool game, £20 worth of free bets for each account!

    Been a good weekend, made about £800.

    You can do as much or as little as you want. For instance a single signup offer will take 5-10 minutes. Personally I'm probably doing about 20 hours a week but you can do much less if you want!

    Thank you, if I quit my part time (15ish hours/wk) job in January, you reckon doing 10 hours a week of matched betting could get me equal/more?

    btw, I'll be quitting my job either way - for other reasons.

    If you do the joining offers, you'll make about a grand and then 10 hours could make you about £150/week. I'd start with winning strategy co UK. free and really simple, excellent guides/software

    Has anyone experienced a bank blocking your current account when you make deposits to various bookies?

    Is there a way to unblock it? I suppose you don't need to let them know you're in the business of matched betting?

    Hi newbie here, I'm currently living at home but I'm going into uni accommodation in a couple days so I don't know weather I should open up the accounts in my home address or my uni address. there were posters above talking about matched betting at uni but they both had different opinions so I was wondering if anyone else had any other experiences with the whole home address or uni address thing?

    Dont use a uni address. Most bookies have a rule of only 1 account per address, you've no idea if someone else has already used the uni address for their accounts.

    Any tips on how to make money after completing the sign up offers ?

    I seem to get really bad reload offers like bet 20, get 5. Someone suggested acca refunds.

    Im also very slow at matched betting. It takes at least 30 minutes to do one offer.

    Thats before you include time wasted checking if a free bet has been added or my weekly check of cash flow to ensure everyone who was suppose to send me money has, thats another 1 hour.

    ACCA refunds are the last reload I'd suggest. They take freaking ages. There's loads of really good reloads out there. Weekly bet clubs are steady income, horse racing refunds can make a lot of money a week and specials like big premier league matches come with some offers weekly. I use 2 free sources to get offers. Matched betting blog dot com has some really helpful guides (but no oddsmatching software) and winning strategy dot co dot uk (good blog and software). Stick to the easiest offers and once you've made some cash, try the more complex ones. No reason why you shouldn't be hitting £200/week...

    That's worth £4, tax free. How is that 'really bad'? Once you get some practice in you can do an offer like that in 2 minutes.

    because when I started all the websites were like £500 a month is easy but a) I dont get that many offers to equal £1000 in free bets and it woud take a many many hours hit anything like £150 a week.

    It takes longer than 2 minutes to identify matches with similar odds(4 minutes in total as you have to do it twice for each bet) let alone complete the entire offer which includes inputting numbers into the calculator, updating excel spreadsheet

    Also on a £20 bet with minimum odds of 1.8 you will loose more than £1 in the first bet, and will only make 66% max on the freebet in cash

    It's actually only £650 in free bets required and that's ignoring all casino offers. £162.50 in FBs a week.. easy.

    Pretty sure I could do it in 2 minutes tbh. It helps if you have access to odds matching software and decent exchange liability.

    I agree, for £15 p/m there are plenty of subscription sites that offer solid odds matchers and list all available reloads...

    You can get all that at the freebie sites, Matched Betting Blog, and Winning Strategy (dot co dot uk). I actually prefer them to the big matched betting sites...seem to be more up to date. I was with PA but got sick of having to pay out £15 whether I was matched betting or not so cancelled and haven't looked back.

    Perhaps stop trying to spam advertise your own site, Steven.

    Ha ha. Thanks but as a fellow student you'd at least appreciate my entrepreneurialism 😁

    And what I said is still true. my site is completely free and I'm constantly adding new features to it. it costs nothing to look around and use the facilities.

    Thanks again dude
