Matched Betting

What is matched betting?

Matched betting is a technique used by people like you and me to profit from the free bets and incentives offered by bookmakers. It is considered risk-free as it is based on the application of a mathematical equation rather than chance.


How does it work?

Adverts are all over the internet, TV and high street from bookmakers like Betvictor, Betfred, Skybet, Paddy Power, Bet365, Coral and others saying bet £5 receive £20 free or £25 Free Bet for New Customers.

The basic principle is that instead of gambling your money away and losing you use these offers to make a guaranteed profit every single time, no matter what your bets do.  Sound good?

How much can you make?

This is probably the most common question and the answer is that it all depends how much time you want to spend per day matched betting.  I personally try to earn £2500 per month but I spend 6-8 hrs per day which considering I am at home and comfortable that is not bad at all.  If you do this for a couple of hours each day you can easily make £500 per month tax free, a couple more hours each day and you can comfortably make £1000 per month tax free.  I bet it sounds really good now doesn’t it?

Whats in it for me?

Not a lot really, so far I have spent around £2000 put sites together which have guides and all the latest offers from the bookmakers each day but in all honesty it makes no difference to me whether you continue reading or not.  So why do I do this?  Well after a friend was kind enough to tell me about matched betting and I made some serious money, I thought I would share with others so you too can make tax free, risk free money as well.

Trust me, there are lots of scams on the internet but this is not one of them and it is not like the more people that do this the sooner it will disappear, matched betting is legal and accepted by the bookmakers (although they do not like it).  Read through the step by step matched betting example and decide for yourself.  After doing the math, if you agree, go for it and you will never look back.

There are sites that charge £25 per month for this information (lots of them) but I provide all the information and tools to do this for free, so why not make a bit of free £cash before you decide to spend any.
