New MB thread(140 Posts)
@Llioed I would recommend a separate bank account, just because it's easier. I didn't get one until I'd been doing it a while but it made it hard to keep up with transactions, it's much easier with a separate account.
Hi, I’m hoping to start MB soon once I get a bonus in my pay from work (end of November) - quick question though; do you have to set up a different bank account? Or can you stick with your normal one?
Thanks. I’m just reading up on everything for now but I feel overwhelmed by all the MB jargon - 2ups, etc etc. Did you all feel overwhelmed to begin wth? And did you catch on soon enough about what to do?
I’m going to begin with Team Profits £10 to £100 plan to try it out - I just need that initial push to actually start (once I get paid at the end of this month) wish me luck!!
Hi radioband best thing to do is head to a website like oddsmonkey or profit accumulator or team profit. Read through the guides. You will need to sign up to get past the first couple of offers (I think there is an offer floating around for oddsmonkey at the moment) but like a pp said on the old thread, your first profit covers this for a couple of months. Follow the instructions and you won't go wrong, and ask if there is anything you are unsure of! I've only been doing this 2 months and up £850 but I'm working through them all very slowly. Others are doing better and also there are some brilliant posters on here who have made a lot and are really helpful. Good luck!
Hi SushiMonster sounds like a good plan for today, I'm hoping to do the same but have a mountain of ironing to do first!
Could someone explain to me how this works or link to a thread that explains please.
I have been away for a few days so didn’t get any more welcome offers done. Exhausted after a race yesterday so I’m going to relax and sit down now with a coffee and do a couple of bookie sign ups :-)
Hi Underworld345 I haven't done any yet where I need to wager like that, I've been sticking to ones like Betfair where you play, say, £20 and get £5 free spins. That way my wagering is done first! Pretty much broken even on those. I don't understand how you can "bust out" though, what exactly does that mean?
TK1930 I can't really help you, I think most of the casinos will show you how much wagering you have done on the promotions page, if you click on the promotion that you are doing. I know Betfair and coral do anyway! So I tend to open the game in a new window then go back and refresh every so often.
Not having the best weekend so far most of my exchange is now in a betting account which is really annoying! Apart from that doing ok!
Getting fed up of low risk casino. I’m giving it a go to see how my o really profit goes but it’s just so up and down. I just spent an hour wagering through a £500 if wagering for bonus. Was going well until I had £50 left to wager and I bust out! So annoying so £27 down on that one overall how do people not get disheartened? I’m doing loads of offers and my thinking is for the moment I’ll use my sports betting to cancel out any losses in casino for this month. If I’m not up by then end of the month, I’ll stick to sports, much less of an emotional rollercoaster!
Wow great win- well done!
Can you talk me through how to wager? Find it very confusing. I understand the concept but then get mixed up as I’m wagering as you make small wins along the way....
Apart from that and the Box Bonanza games I was due, I've had a dire day. Few good offers and the ones there were I lost loads on wagering.
Have qualified for a few free bets and bet clubs though, so some profit to come.
Casino giveth and casino taketh away... Lol
Lol and quite right too the £5 free bet is just as important! So thrilled for
Thanks, I'm still in shock! It's mostly going in the house deposit fund, but I am going to treat us all to a curry tonight.
Of course I carried on with the £1.50 remaining to wager for my £5 free bet, lol
OMG that is truly amazing! Well done And the reason why we do this sensibly so we never lose out and sometimes this happens!
Thanks for the new thread!
After a good first week on low risk casino, I had a couple of bad days. Made a few mistakes, all the offers seemed to leave me at a loss. Determined to keep at it...
I was wagering through my £20 on Coral for their £5 free bet. Getting fed up as I was almost done and down £17...
Jackpot game comes up. I thought 'oh here we go, a tease I expect'
I feel sick...
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!
