    hi i have never tried matched betting before and haven't normally considered it, but i am getting v. low on money right now after failing to find a job. So i was wondering how easy is it to get into matched betting and what would be the first few steps into getting started? also i get how it is legal and tax free but do you still need to report your earnings?

    Is it okay to use a different IP address for my betting accounts, like placing a bet on my friends computer still using my accounts of course? Or will these seem suspicious?

    I'd say you need at least a couple of hundred to get going and do a few of the easy sign up offers ( essentially easier to do more offers if you have a bigger bank roll to begin with ). As a complete newbie, Sign up to a well known subscription matched betting service like Profit monkey or PA and the tutorials on there should walk you through the first offers to do.

    As for declaring...no need

    Never heard of the site to be honest so couldn't comment. But I know there are tons of smaller sites popping up now offering a similair server... usually best to stick to the services with a longer track record and bigger user base...

    Once sign ups are done, there are daily offers known as reloads that such sites will list each day. These will cover casino offers and sports offers...

    I'd not touch those small sites, they are springing up and disappearing all over the place at the moment. Stick to the main sites: PA & PM. Send me a message if youre interested and I'll go through the advantages/disadvantages of both.

    Once youve done the initial signups theres loads of recurring offers to take advantage of.

    I did straight after, I was trying to just follow the vids on profit accumulator after hours of reading trying to understand this. But I got confused and did the lay first. I was just wondering does it change anything? 🤔😣

    Did MB last year and made a good few K. Been off since June.

    Looking to get back into it, just curious what the horse racing offers are looking like at the moment? Any idea if High 5 will be back soon? I may hold out for that

    2nd place refunds are the best offer. SportingBet and Betway.

    I need to get back into this. Done it a few times a few years back but then kinda just stopped doing it....

    is it really possible to make 2k per month consistently?
    I always thought the point would come where you run out of bookies to sign up to...........

    2K is a bit of a push unless you have multiple accounts. But certainly 1-1.5k doing accumulator offers, second place offers, reloads (general and from your e-mail), casino offers.

    Cheers

    Totally legal. All you are doing is placing bets.

    I started with £50 and built up from there using Profit accumulator but it is correct that the more you have then more offers you can do straight away so get money more quickly.

    It's betting so there is no tax to pay in the UK and no need to report it.

    I have a tutorial that explains everything. PM me and I'll send you a link if interested.

    Cheers

    It doesn't matter that you did the lay bet first so long as you did the back bet and the odds didn't change on the back bet.
