I had to step away from matched betting because I was tempted to do the slots and I got out of control. I have a history, so matched betting wasn't the best thing for me to get into as I was exposed to sites with a slot/casino section.
Sorry to hear that Misseb.

Its something that I do worry about when MB is promoted all over the shop. I think that once you start the MB journey, the slots and the casino offers are pushed as a 'regular' part of it. But its a not risk free.

Yes, it's a constant struggle for me to resist,luckily so far i'm not behind, but the stress it has caused has not been worth it. I can go for a month without betting then i get lazy, bored or complacent and go on a binge. I've made over 200k from matched betting in just over 2 years, but until my money is locked away in a savings account I feel that money is at risk if i go mad one day, it's like a poisoned chalice for me.
Be careful!

Hi @madfistbt was there one to many '0' in that figure you quoted?
