I've heard of Matched Betting.. is it hard to understand and can you lose any money you bet with that is your own money?

How much do you need to start with? I am on JPJ and wager £2 per week to get free spins.

Thanks

I would recommend taking a free trial at either Oddsmonkey or Profit Accumulator.

Its hard to understand in the beginning but with minimal research gets easier. Just start slow and it comes.

Re. losing money. You can but it depends on the risk you are willing to take. If you don't want to take risks, stick to guaranteed profit offers.

I'd rather not take risks no. Cool if I take the free trial does it teach me what to do? How much do you need to start with?

Yep, those 2 sites teach you the basics. Videos, options of 1 on 1 chats with experts etc. The more money you can start with the more you can be doing. But honestly I'd start off with 50 -100 and do 1 offer at a time in the beginning

That is amazing Jon :) do you make a weekly income and does it take up a lot of your time?
Just takes a few minutes a day. Maybe a bit longer on a Saturday due to the sheer amount of sport on :)

Sounds good. For those sites I don't need to enter my card details for the trials do I? Do you sign up to quite a few online sites like Coral etc to get free money extra to use to place the bets?

What do Odds mean say like Back 4.5 Lay 4.4? Good to get Back and Lay numbers as close as possible?

Odds are numbers that represent the chance of an outcome happening.
With matched betting you are BACKING and LAYING a selection to cover all outcomes.

Backing at 4.40 means that you are betting for the outcome to occur at the bookmaker (I.e. Team A to win, horse X to win).

Laying at 4.50 is betting against the outcome to happen at the betting exchange.

Yes, you want the back and lay odds as close as possible to maximise profit.

Amazon just contacted me regarding my seller account... I wasn't aware I still had one as I last used it in 2004!
Can I believe I've actually just bought some proper lights for LEGO animations - a bit of a short sale on Amazon! :D
So Respondent have contacted me to take part in a face to face interview next week.
Excited & should take me over £100 goal for January....
I really should get back into Matched Betting - I'm pretty sure most of what I make goes to Odds Monkey as I don't bother cancelling the subscription - oops!
So as a newbie here I'm still trying to get my head round it all & which is the way to channel my time. I've signed up to Prolific & Resondent thanks to @Jon
I've earned a few 3.00 on Prolific so far & waiting on surveys to come back from Respondent that I've applied for, so fingers crossed.
I have a few items listed on Ebay which I hope I will put to my 1st try at MB, scares me to be honest.
