    [OT] Discussion about matched betting

    I think it probably was a mistake doing it at 10pm on a Friday, but I lucked out. I'd done a couple at offpeak times and not had much joy, and struggled to find enough rooms on a few too so thought I'd just go for it to see what happens. Way more variance but potentially a bigger win when it works.

    [OT] Getting back into Mystery Shopping

    Still waiting to be invited to the tasks I've applied for on eDigital, I'm in a queue for them or something and has been a couple of weeks. Guess there's a fair bit of demand though, will all come through eventually. Marketforce has been very, very good to me the last couple of weeks to the...

    [OT] Discussion about matched betting

    Stretched so thin with all these football offers that loads are still going begging. 'Tis madness. £114 off a bingo signup last night makes up for it somewhat though.

    [OT] Discussion about matched betting

    I would do the outright winner, you're not tying up that much as the odds on favourites are pretty low. With top goalscorer there's a lot more volatility as even Aguero/Costa are around 5.0 as favourites.

    Betting on Chelsea is an ethical dilemma the likes of which I've not faced before.

    [OT] Discussion about matched betting

    You will spend a lot of the time waiting for bets to settle to start with, especially if you're starting with a smaller amount (I have). The more you can leave it untouched and build up your bank, the more offers you can take on at once because you aren't so hamstrung by liability in the...

    [OT] Discussion about matched betting

    I've only managed 7 of the signup offers and I'm up £135. Don't have much of a bank to put into it but slowly getting there. Depends on luck with bingo and slots offers to a degree, but if you have £500-£1000 to put into the signup offers to start with you could do £5k easily within 6 months...

    [OT] Streetbees tasks, (almost) UK WIDE :-)

    Yeah, only 3 of mine have been paid, one stuck on submitted currently which I'm guessing won't go through. I didn't even receive an email saying they'd reached quota, had to contact them via Facebook.

    [OT] Streetbees tasks, (almost) UK WIDE :-)

    I've had four approved, but same as Hook I drove 12 miles to find quota had been filled so the remaining three I couldn't do. Not fantastic but guess that's the rub of it.

    [OT] Discussion about matched betting

    I'm guessing if people can use Smarkets they will for the lower commission, but I've not used it yet. Not sure I fancy it with the technical issues either.

    I've got 7 within 10 miles. Could be a busy day.

    [OT] Discussion about matched betting

    Since Friday morning, apparently can take up to 5 working days but I'd expect paypal to be quicker than that. Wouldn't be so bad if I hadn't tied up all my float in one bet, lesson learned.

    Withdrawing from 32redsport takes an absolute age, can see why you need to build a bank fairly quickly.

    Haha, that's some luck. Not sure I'd recommend it as the way forward though ;D
