Man am I glad we are back to the flat season for racing. Makes predicting winners for horse refunds far easier without the steeplechase element!

Quick question folks (sorry in advance if it's stupid) - I have just started Matched Betting with Profit Accumulator. Do I have to do all the welcome offers at once or can I wait until for talks sake tomorrow to do the second one? I have just completed the first offer.

Hi and welcome, @WattersonBecca :) You can do the welcome offers as and when YOU want to - a lot of it will depend on:

a) how much money you have available to use for the bookie and exchanges.
b) how long you have to wait until you get any money withdrawn from a bookie (usually a few days, so tends to slow people down the most)
c) how quickly or slowly you want to do it.

Best to go fairly slowly at the beginning until you get the hang of things (in my experience anyway)

good luck, and ask away whenever you get stuck - there is always someone on here to help, though they may not be around to answer straightaway :)

Thanks so much - I have just realised that it directs me back to a welcome page to continue on with the offers. Apparently I turn into a complete technophobe when I start something new.

Thanks for that - really helpful answer!

:) Definitely taking it slow.

Oh, a couple of extra tips I wish I'd known about at the beginning:

if PA still suggest Betfair as the Exchange - take a look at Smarkets and Matchbook too as they have 0% commission at the moment through PA and Oddsmonkey - this will make it a LOT cheaper for your betting if you have the 5% commission with Betfair.

Secondly, check to see if you can go through a cashback site such as Topcashback, Quidco or Ohmydosh when joining a new bookies.
The cashback is not guaranteed but is a nice bonus if you do get it. You will need to check that it does not 'clash' with the sign-up offer first but can ask on here if you are not sure.
(you can sometimes get more cashback by signing up to them via their casino offers first but would need to check if this affects the sportsbook side of things).

Think that's enough for now - don't want to confuse you too much as there is a lot to take in at the beginning :)

Thanks a mil! That is really helpful. Where would I check to see if it clashes with the sign-up offer? Cashback site T's & C's or the bookies signup t's & c's for the offer?

I found out about it on here from @Uhhhhh - look at their post on this thread:


bear in mind this is 2 years ago, so best thing is to check the t&c's at the bookie and the cashback site.

That reminds me - NEVER go onto Live Chat to chase up free bets etc if you can help it - always best to keep a low profile :)

I forgot about couponarbitrage.com - they do cashback too - you are more likely to get it AND a lot quicker too but the choices are more limited - though do check regularly as offers are updated :)

That's awesome thank you. I will look into this more tomorrow. I have so far completed the first welcome offer successfully - yay to my first £15.00 profit. And I am half way through offer two - event happens tomorrow and then it says I have to wait up to 48 hours for bets to credit so will keep trucking on through and take my time to read all this while I am going slow so I am ready for when I start doing other offers. :)

You're off to a fantastic start ;)

The amount of money you are going to make in the long run will amaze you ;)

Made £2960 from MB/bingo/punts/free spins from first week of April 2018 until same time this year. I keep proper records now but I'm missing 10 days from that period so likely over the £3k mark.

Can't complain at all, that's a huge sum of money to me.

I forgot how profitable the world cup was, Cheltenham was great for me and a lot of odds boosts to keep it moving along. There's quite a lot of new account offers in that figure, I've lost some of the better bookie accounts and the bingo offers I'm sure won't be as profitable, so will be tough to make that every year.

Made real attempts the 2nd half of the year to try and look after the accounts more and can't stress the importance of that - haven't lost many or any accounts recently. Betway, Sky and Coral were very profitable for me but now gone.

I need to look after my accounts more... I imagine I won't until I've had at least my first gubbing though. Got to learn the hard way sometimes! ;)

What's a reasonable level of mugging activity though? It all looks so expensive; every Tenner you mug is nearly 50p down the drain :(

That's fantastic. What are your recommendations for looking after the accounts? Mug bet after every free bet?

Frustrating as heck building a new website!
Attempting to explain to a 2 year old that it takes time for a DVD to start up and press play...
It's hard work being as sexy as me..
Very slow start to the month. Nothing to report..
