I would say playing through the offers over 2 and a bit months you will hit a decent slot win or two as well

ONLY do slot offers with ZERO risk when you start out. The only money I made in the first 6 months was completely risk free at BGO. I ended up losing money overall from doing the slot offers where you wager X to get X free spins... I never had any luck at all. The variance is huge in those offers so for every person winning £100 from an offer there'll be another that loses £100.

blimey!, i would be so happy if i got to that amount!....lets just hope i win the next few at the exchange and not the bookies....

I whacked over £500 into MB at the start and it took me from December 22nd to end of March to get to £2000. Obviously I could do higher odds free bets as well which does increase your profit.

Having modelled a reasonable amount of returns (75% per free bet) starting with £50-100 in your bank I estimate it would take minimum of 3 months to reach 2k, as the first 4-5 sign up offers you'll only be able to do 1 every 5 days on average due to waiting for withdrawals from bookies. This is by far the worst bit as you feel impatient and like you aren't getting anywhere! Stick with it, it DOES work, but don't rush as mistakes will hurt your profit (i speak from experience!)

You need to be getting 75% from your free bets otherwise it's a waste. 4.50x odds is PLENTY to get this return, don't bother with higher odds you'll end up with an extra 50p or £1 and it ISN'T worth it.

If you can't afford a £50 fb, go through ALL the £20 and £10 free bet offers on the beginners sign up page (if you're on PA) until you have enough in your exchange. Don't waste those £50's!

Hope this helps!
