Yes, casino offers are a minefield and many are not worth the time of day. Risk free offers are great though, made 79 out of them this week, well 69 cos I made a 10 cock up too.

Just had a quick look with the free account they offer. Looks quite similar to PA but a better website and well if its cheaper and the odds-matching is real time, quite possibly worth the move.

I'm liking the idea of the race-matcher (just looked it up)

Made 487 clear profit as a complete novice of risk free matched betting this weekend simply by following the blog on post 1, and the youtube video in post 19. Opened a bet365 account with 200 which was matched by them in an email code. They explain that you have to bet 1200 (or 3 times whatever you open it with). You simply lay off what you bet on on the bet365 site. If you lose on bet365, you win on smarkets or betfair exchange. If you win on bet365, you keep going until you have bet 3 times your stake and can withdraw the bonus and profits, which is what happened to me. You need to use the back lay calculator to get your stakes correct though.

Not sure how you win now you are betting with their money, but it was a good feeling withdrawing 1200 of bookies money and still leaving some in there and also the exchange, even if it was a bit nervewracking depositing 900 quid into the exchange for the lay off bets. That youtube guide is very helpful though, cheers dean.

Some euro offers are now coming out on quite a few websites for those of you who do this! Also hope people got on the 365 champs league offer at the weekend! June should be a good month for matched betting!!!

Can i open a bet365 account for the missus, using her card and a different email address? Seems silly to turn down free money.

Yes you can as far as I'm aware! my brother has a 365 account and we live in the same house. The only thing I would do to be safe is to place the bets on a different device to the one you've used. I always use my mobile phone for bets!

Sorted cheers. We actually lost the first 200 pound bet, which was ideal as the lay bet won 187. Now just need to bet the bonus 200 and lay that off by the same amount. Will be hoping for a similar result, 360 clear profit for 2 risk free bets is better than working sundays I'm off work at the moment so this free money is coming in handy!

I suppose bet365 must win a fair proportion of the time themselves, otherwise they would withdraw the 200 pound bonus offers I guess.

If you do already have an account then you do the following:

Place 50 bet prematch on anything and lay it off at the exchange, calculated as (SR) Stake returned. So you could for example, bet on man city to win, then use a matched betting calculator to tell you how much to lay it off with for your acceptable loss.

Then place 50 in play on anything. Maybe on the draw for example. Then calculate the bet as SNR and lay that off at the bet exchange. You profit just like a 50 free bet. So 70% of 50 is 35 profit.

Does that make sense? I've kinda assumed that you have already done most of the sign up offers and know matched betting. Maybe I should make it easier for other people reading this? If anyone wants me to, just ask and I'm happy to walk through it better.
Can you explain SNR deano? In setting up as per the youtube vid both accounts made serious money but in different ways. The first one won at bet365, and I was able to withdraw 1200 to repay the 760 I had to pay into the exchange account for the lay bets.

The other one lost both 200 bets at bet365- the free bet and my 200- but obviously won both times at the exchange, giving me 700 in there and a similar profit to the first one.

Now I want to start doing matched betting on its own, but don't want to feck it up

Well played mate. If you've done the bet365 biggie then the others should be ok. Do all of the high street brands that are well known and you will be fine. Once you've done the sign ups there are offers throughout the week which will help you out. A lot are around with the euros coming up. Following that forum I mentioned above also helps scope offers and it's generally a good community.

OK right gotya. So its not possible to do matched betting like on a bog standard match without a bookie offer then?

Will definitely get on the euro2016 offers. The bet365 thing was a piece of piss in truth, as long as you use the back lay calculator eh.

Did the ladbrokes free matched bet offer last night. Columbia came through at 2.50 for 125 from a 50 stake, laid off at betfair. Now have 7 days to make the 50 pound free bet on something, and lay that off somewhere for guaranteed profit with them or with the exchange. Can actually bet dispassionately now, knowing that all three outcomes are covered, and just look at the decimal odds and not who it is you are betting on. That To view the link you have to Register or Login is good and easy to follow isn't it. Will withdraw that 125 back to my card first to cover the 50 ladbrokes deposit and 75 liability from the lay, then using their money. Not as lucrative as the bet365 offer, but still easy money all the same.

My brother had a good idea for an insurance tweak this morning. If the exchange lay bet looks like winning, back the same team you have bet with the bookie to win at the exchange late on when it goes 1000/1. Only takes a quid off your profits but turns it into double profits if they score twice late.

Sorry I've been away from this in a while and just seen your posts. No problem on pointing you towards the youtube video mate.

There's also a book on Amazon that's currently free. It's a quick read and great to help you understand everything if you're still just getting started:

Bet 365 have their 50 inplay offer for the England vs Wales game today if anyone has time to get on it. It's worth about 30 profit.

Bwin have pretty much the same 50 inplay offer for the same match. Worth about 25 profit or so.

They may be more, I haven't had time to look yet.

Had a good day today. Doubled up on the inplay offer and then stuck a little bet on norn Ireland next goal in injury time. These euro 16 free bet offers are brilliant arent they. Thats me 800 clear profit so far thanks to matched betting. Obviously nothing like his 12 grand or whatever it is but still good for no risk.

Nice work mate!

To view the link you have to Register or Login have a 10 new account offer if you haven't got an account with them yet. It's only a 10 matched (SR) free bet, but it all adds up.

cheers will give it a look. bet365 and ladbrookes have been good so far, particularly 365, but when I tried logging on the emptied ladbrokes one yesterday it said account suspended. It was like going on the BBS. I think I might have lost that one

good opportunity for anyone who doesn't have a account to get free money tonight via their 50 pound free bet offer. Simply BACK portugal for 50 quid at 1.85 at Ladbrokes, then LAY portugal for 50 quid at betfair exchange. Currently the lay price is 1.86, so a real minimal acceptable loss of pence in exchange for a 50 pound free bet, which you can then do something similar for tomorrow and make an easy profit either at ladbrokes or at the exchange.

This guide explains how, although i prefer to back and lay at short odds like Portugal are, as you don't need to have so much in the betfair exchange account. In their example, for the free bet, they bet and lay on swansea which are 10/1 or something, requiring you to have 400 quid or something in it. Feck that, just back and lay something short, as the profit from the free bet is still similar and you only need enough in there to pay out at short odds:

Anyway its a good way to practice matched betting before you extract the 200 from the big bet365 offer (explained on post 19). In the Portugal example, the back and lay price are really close which is exactly what you want, as the thing called 'the acceptable loss' is really tiny, and maximises your profit from the free 50 pound bet. You should use the thing called a back lay calculator: To view the link you have to Register or Login and enter the ladbrokes back price and stake (50) in the blue 'back' columns, and then just the betfair exchange lay price (1.86 in the case of portugal). Leave the pink 'stake' figure blank, and hit the green 'calculate' button. That then just works out what stake you need to lay Portugal at the exchange (the pink figure next to Portugal). Thats you being the bookie on the exchange, covering your arse against your 50 quid bet on Portugal with Ladbrookes. The lay bet means you cover the other two eventualities, that being the draw or the austria win. It doesn't matter what the result of the match then is, as you have covered all 3 outcomes. You either win at ladbrokes and lose at the exchange, or lose at ladbrokes and win at the exchange. Because the difference in odds is minimal (1.85 to 1.86), your minimal acceptable loss is negligible so your profit from the free bet will be the full 50, near as dammit.

anyway hope this rambling shit makes sense. Its really pretty easy in practice if you click the right buttons, but follow the guide and/or youtube vid if it don't.
