Thought I would start a new thread as the old one is closed! Hello to everyone old and new trying out Matched Betting!

So I'm £850 up now really happy with that. How is everyone else doing?

Quick question - just wondering what you are all doing to try and prevent being gubbed? I don't have much time during the week to do this so I am a bit concerned that a lot of my reload offers have been the only ones I've done. Particularly interested in making sure I can protect my Bet365 account as I did well on 2up's at the weekend. Thank you!

Hope you all find this! smile

Having the money tied up is really frustrating, and it takes days for withdrawals to come back into the bank account so you can move on to next stage.

ooo Lucky Olliv I think I'm going to be off to quite a slow start, already being joined on most sites I need log in and sort my marketing preferences and wait for the reload offers.

Fluffy grin
I have 888sport, comeon and £30 at Smarkets left to do
Got £120 liability tied up in my free William hill bet too, that's on saturdays match

Always follow the guides to the letter on the casino offers, it worked out this time olivander They are easy to get wrong. Ollies food bills sorted for the next week 😹

Lady Always do the back bet first, and wait for it to go through.

Don’t forget to check the cashback sites before you sign up, I missed out on hundreds last year.

Ollivander - nicely done grin

I layed a bet, thought I had backed it but turned out it didn't go through... won my lay bet though!

Ollivander84 Thu 06-Dec-18 22:02:44

I tried to do a free spin on Betfair, fucked up and played £5 of my own money. Fuming
Then it popped up... I won £87 blushgrin

I an still completely baffled by casinos though. How does it work? Its the wagering 10x which doesn't make sense to me.

QforCucumber Thu 06-Dec-18 16:34:03

was averaging approx £300-400 a month while on mat leave, topped up the SMP and was a great help, since going back to work full time I've not bothered too much though - not enough hours in the day. Determined for the next couple of months again though

AutumnB Thu 06-Dec-18 16:30:17

How much did you make before QforCucumber?

QforCucumber Thu 06-Dec-18 16:06:07

restarting up again tonight after a year off from this, starting balance I have is £50 so hoping I can do something with that. Going on holiday in 12 weeks so hoping to utilise MB for spending money without having to dip into savings. Hope I can remember the basics!

Allhallowseve Thu 06-Dec-18 15:38:02

Thankyou very much . I presumed so but am taking this very slowly still and wanted to double check.

Fluffycloudland77 Thu 06-Dec-18 14:44:43

Your bet stays the same.

Allhallowseve Thu 06-Dec-18 14:31:53

Can I ask ... if you place your back and lay bets a couple of days before a game does it affect you if the odds change .....or do the odds remain the same as when you made the bets?

Ollivander84 Wed 05-Dec-18 22:42:16

I'm a bit stuck at the minute as all my money is tied up in a £100+ liability grin
Got £30 left of free bets to do at Smarkets. Accidentally won £10 on slots (don't ask) at SkyBet
Waiting for my £15 to credit at William hill
I think that's it - William hill and skymarkets I have bets on with (2 at WH)

AutumnB Wed 05-Dec-18 22:25:01

Ollivander84 I got that one today too. I'm going to do it. I also got a Coral one yesterday 'deposit, bet 5 and get a free 5 bet' and I did that one too and got a £3.66 profit on that one. Not much but every little helps!

I'm finding it fun. But I'm a number cruncher so suits my personality anyway!

Ollivander84 Wed 05-Dec-18 21:14:02

William hill just emailed with bet £10, get £15 free bet
Presuming it's worth doing?!

Fluffycloudland77 Wed 05-Dec-18 18:37:53

I’d sign up now and read the advice on keeping accounts open.

AutumnB Wed 05-Dec-18 18:04:38

It doesn't take them long to send the reload offers does it?! Coral and William Hill sent them the day after I did the welcome offers.

It's a bit scary thinking about those vulnerable to gambling, how much temptation there is.

AutumnB Wed 05-Dec-18 17:19:23

When's the best time to get oddsmonkey? I'm only on week 1 so £17.99 a month seems a lot but if it does what I think it will then it would be a massive time saver. I know there is the one week trial for £1 but just seeing how much I can do in the first couple of weeks.

I have been brave and I've put about £250 in my exchange so far, just so I can get through the offers quicker (I'm super impatient) and maximise the free bets. Terrified of making a silly mistake though! I'm already £50 up in 3 days.

Fluffycloudland77 Wed 05-Dec-18 15:32:44

There’s free bets offered after the sign up offers, plus price boosts, dutching, each way extra places.

Bonkersblond Wed 05-Dec-18 15:25:53

Hmmm, giving this a go after reading and pondering for last couple of months, am as far as a Betfair and Coral account, hoping to give it a proper go today, have signed up to the PA free trial and studying tutorials, think I’m there with the process!

LadyFuchsiaGroan Wed 05-Dec-18 14:52:58

Nice to find a mb thread. I started yesterday after reading the team profit guides. Started with the coral welcome offer and signed up to oddsmonkey. Slowly starting to get my head around it, although I'm confised how you can keep going after the welcome offers..?

Fluffycloudland77 Wed 05-Dec-18 11:37:19

It’s all clicking into place with me, finally. I have an Oddsmonkey trial and one to one training tomorrow.

*bullet not billet !!

Allhallowseve Tue 04-Dec-18 13:52:02

Hi all ! Newbie here too! I but the billet after lots of reading and completed welcome offer for coral trigger bet on Sunday. I’m taking it slow have placed £10 of my free bet on a football game tonight then will place the other £10 once that one is done . I am being very slow and just worrying about losing money - hence starting on the £10 plan. Hopefully I can get a bit better at this....
