just going through t&c's on paddypower. says 'The Cash Out feature will not be available to use with your free bet.'
does that have any implications? will i never be able to withdraw the money?
its starting to look like a minefield out there, but if i can get my head round it ill give it a bash. if its too complicated it may not be worth the hassle.
also wondering how people make big money with this.
just following the example in the 'how to', once the initial bet is made, you get say a £20 free bet, and the example made £15 on it. if you did this round all the bookies, youre never going to make that much really are you? a few £15s? yeah, better than nothing but a lot of faff (and chance of getting it wrong) for not much gain? or am i underestimating how many bookies there are and hteres hundreds of em?
EDIT: was sort of expecting the profit you made from one went to the next and accumulated, but thats not the case. youre doing the same thing from scratch with each bookie yep? so a few smallish gains?
just going through t&c's on paddypower. says 'The Cash Out feature will not be available to use with your free bet.'
Have you checked what the Cash Out feature is? It sounds like some form of taking partial profit in play, which is completely irrelevant.
Big money is made by doing some big offers and lots of smaller ones.
Some of the bigger bookies offer £100 to £200, more offer £30-50 and lots offer £10-30. It doesn't take long to hit £750 to £1000. Your operating costs are pretty much zero, it takes little skill and not a lot of effort. Have you found an easier way to make money, if so i'd like to hear it
Wait to do the bigger bookies around key sporting events, then buy the racing post, they often have bumper offers on for things like the start of the footie season or big horse meets
yeah, worth trying probably. dont mind losing a little on a gamble if its not what it seems, but i spose im scared of thinking ive done ok, then find out my moneys locked in the account and i have to use it on 4 more bets for instance before i can withdraw it, or some other such loophole.
Bigger signup offers used to come around when big sporting events were on e.g. Royal Ascot, I *think* Ladbrokes used to have a £200 freebet for some of such events. Worth doing the research and deferring some bookie signups until the big signup offers.
Yup, Lads was £200
From my records:
05/01/08 Ladbrokes Q 1.8 1.8 200 -4.48 Mallorca v Barca
05/01/08 Ladbrokes Free 9 8.8 200 173.88 Fulham v Bristol Rovers
1st line is my qualifier bet (it was a "bet £200, get a £200 freebet offer") and I "lost" £4.48
2nd line is the freebet which I extracted £173.88 from the £200, so a £169ish profit for sitting infront of a PC for a few mins
right. well ive joined paddypower and i think you have to make your bet within 30 days or summats, so i think ill prob stick a tenner in there and see what happens. course, ill have to stick the same-ish on with betfair wont i?
but yeah, makes sense to pick and choose the others.
Probably all of these have already been covered off, sorry if it's a bit garbled..
Firstly, realistically, you only get to sign up to a bookie once. You need to make the most of that opportunity. If you dont (here speaks experience) you'll rue it in the future if you continue. If you havent got the time to do things properly, maybe hold off til you have.
Before you sign up, always check around for the best offer for the bookie. Paddypower, for instance, run a £250 free bets offer. When you sign up for less, you're giving money away.
Watch out for the expiry dates on any bets.
Don't underestimate the amount of float you need if you want to extract as much money as possible from the sites.
Also, check quidco/topcashback to see what they're offering, though some places wont let you use these with free bets.
Joining Betfair with a referral code from jobbingmusician on moneysaving expert, and going through quidco with get you around £50 in cash and free bets, if you make the bets criteria they set. jobbingmusician only keeps £5 of their referral bonus, returning the rest to you.
And , obviously, if others use your referral code, you can make free bets if they meet the minimum betting criteria.
thanks vinny, prob a bit too late for PP now, and also betfair, as ive joined them. betfair did say summats about an offer but i didnt understand how itd work, or whether it would be relevant to this matched betting lark.
FWIW, ive deposited a tenner in PP and bet on a win in premiership on saturday. ive also deposited a tenner in BF and bet against it.
so. £20 invested, ill see what occurs and what i get back
well, 2 weeks on, ive joined 3 bookies and made £55 not big money, but better than nowt.
does anyone here do this regularly still? im getting a fair few 'free £10 bets' on stuff like tennis, motor racing, all with different t&c's, so i darent do those as i dont understand them. and after only 3 bookies, i cant find any other straightforward 'join and get a free bet' offers without having to roll the bet over a few times and suchlike.
anyone doing this who doesnt mind being my 'email pal' and talking me through whether some of them are worth it or not, and how to do them?
Of all the places to find a matched betting forum I think this is the least likely I've encountered!
I've done it a couple of times (not multi accounting; simply having a common name, moving house, new laptop, new cards - not specifically for matched betting why not profit from it again!) and there's still money to be made. £500 is easy, £1000 if you put your mind to it. The bigger your starting float the easier it is.
Do not start if you don't have a basic understanding of maths though, that's a recipe for disaster!
For what it's worth (as I'm here for bike chat not matched betting and don't want to get involved in hand holding - sorry if that sounds harsh, it can just be painful explaining in messages like this!), I started at MSE on the GIOL forum and then moved to The Gambling Times. Both have got excellent people and how to guides. Good start is actually http://www.thegamblingtimes.com/board/content/dictionary-gambling-betting-terminology-477/ read through that and the associated guides and call me in the morning!
Can't believe I've not been sucked into a conversation with myself on this!
If you're thinking of getting involved, follow this guy Saul's blog. He posts some other guff as well, but the weekly matched betting blog is a decent insight into the time and effort involved.
Right, that's me done!
So you joined, resurrected a post from 8 months ago, twice, but you're " here for bike chat not matched betting and don't want to get involved in hand holding". Oooook.
thread resurrection time
anybody here still doing this? im not, as it started to seem like the offers were getting too complicated for me to follow through and i was scared of messing up. still get the odd email through tho with offers and from matched betting sites, thats why i thought id bring this up again.
for instance, theres this offer from a new bookies that implies theres £200 to be made?
i dont understand the terms. anyone still doing this and think its a sure-fire winner? or too complicated to follow through with?
Sadexpunk, you need to stay switched on if you're doing Matched Betting or you will potentially lose money.
A 3 second Google on that bookie told me that they are currently red listed.
Stick to the reputable ones.
ill probably leave it mate. as you rightly point out, im mebbes just not savvy enough to make it work
If you’re hunting for a matched betting forum then you’ve probably already surpassed the stage of asking ‘How Does Matched Betting Work?’ and are instead looking for a community of like-minded individuals who you can discuss this intuitive betting strategy with and share matched betting tips with.
Let’s face it. Matched betting as a lone ranger can be a bit depressing.
Nobody around you gets it. Nobody understands what you are doing. Many of your friends think you’re a gambling addict who is on the path to financial ruin and your ‘lucky streak’ will will turn into an unlucky slide soon.
I’ve lost count of the amount of times I’ve interacted with offline friends about matched betting, only to be rewarded with disbelieving looks and pity!
Yes – like it was a bad thing that I’m banking thousands of pounds extra each year, tax-free, for relatively little work.
But aside from the happiness factor and motivational aspect of surrounding yourself in a community with risk-free bets running through their blood, there’s a lot to be said for the matched betting tips, take-aways and real-time opportunities you will extract from a matched betting forum.The Best Matched Betting Forum?
Now, there are a few matched betting forums which exist in various capacities, many of which I have been a member at some time or other.
These days I lean towards the Profit Maximiser community which is orchestrated through a Facebook group.
Actually – Profit Maximiser was never set-up to exist solely as a matched betting forum. The original idea was to provide step-by-step instruction to complete all positive expected value offers from any gaming offer available online and consolidate those walkthroughs into a members site.
This is not a free product / forum. The best matched betting forums are not free and this is for good reason.
Matched betting has existed for a rather long time already now. It will continue to exist of course until the day that bookmakers stop handing out free bet bonuses (i.e. never!).
This means that there are already quite a lot of people who a regular matched bettors.
In the Profit Maximiser Facebook “Secret Group” alone look how many active subscribers there are as I write this blog post right now. (Note: if you are reading beyond the publish date then this number will have likely increased yet further).
Nearly 6,000 matched betting forum members!
Now consider that other forums and communities exist probably with membership levels into the thousands of people as well, alongside the guys and girls that are flying solo, and you’re probably beginning to realise that the amount of people matched betting stems into the tens of thousands.
That’s tens of thousands of people looking for the best offers.
That’s tens of thousands of people looking for the best odds.The Truth About Matched Betting Tips
When it comes to private forums vs. public forums on the internet you tend to always see two common characteristics, regardless of what the subject matter of the forum is about:
So I hope you can see where I’m coming from with this now.
Whilst there are a lot of matched betting offers which have stood the test of time and are seemingly never going away, these sign-up offers are just the tip of the iceberg in what’s achievable and accessible to make money from.
The consistent long-term money comes from completing the more obscure offers – refund offers, if offers, current event promotional offers.
To hit big numbers in the matched betting world it helps to have access to the best information and the best information comes form private matched betting forums like that you’ll find in Profit Maximiser.

Yes this is true. My family and friends couldn’t believe that I earn that much through matched betting. All this time, they thought I was just some lazy person doing nothing at home!
