Hi all

I have tried match betting and only just about understand it, but am I doing it right by earning £2/3 on each bet. Also I see people saying Ascot.is a good earner but how ? And why is it different to other times . I have also had the £1 trial on both Om and accumulator so could I do again as an offer as I don't think I make anywhere enough to justify a monthly subscription

Hello Normaq

No. You should be making at least 70% of your stake as profit. So a bet £10 get £10 free bet offer should return you somewhere in the region of £7 ish profit. Check back over the OM or PA guides again and see where you went wrong. I suspect you might be using the calculator incorrectly and laying the wrong amount when you use your free bet.

Also I see people saying Ascot.is a good earner but how ? And why is it different to other times
Some bookmakers will have extra offers for the big festivals like Ascot. Skybet for example have been known to offer a refund if your horse loses the first race each day. This is easy money.

Theoretically, you could sign up again with a new email address but It wouldn't help because they only carry 2 bookmakers on the oddsmatcher for the trial offer. (or they did when I did it several years ago. I think it was coral and betfred at the time) A full subscription IS worth it once you get the hang of it. I think you can cancel at any time so if you go ahead but then decide its still not for you later on.

Hi

You should be making 80% from each free bet so if the free bet is worth £10 you should aim to be making £8 risk free from it.

Are you doing VERY low odds on the free bet to be making only £2/£3 per offer?

I only started 2 weeks ago and am in 3 digit profits already. Once you sign up for the full package you will see the profits start to roll in.

I don't understand the bit about horse looses first race of the day, so do you need to look for the horses which are doing more than 1 race?

No, the offer is for the first race. If your horse doesn't win you get a free bet or even possibly your money back.

Keep a look out in the morning of the first day and see what offers are around.

Hello. I'm still here lurking around :)
Hello.
I know I have been gone for a while and many of you will be wondering why I've been so quiet.

Some of you are aware, due to circumstances of what has been going on, but now it's time to let everyone know.

Back at the end of September I was diagnosed with metaplastic breast cancer. I've had such a whirlwind that I haven't really been able to take it all in. I was told I would need surgery, then Chemo and the
