What's your name and where are you from?

AJ, from Northamptonshire

Please can you tell us a bit about yourself?

I’m a single mum of a 4-year-old, serving in the Army.

How long have you been a member of Profit Accumulator?

I have been a member for 5 months now.

Can you remember how you first heard about Matched Betting and what you thought about it? What convinced you to give it a go?

I first heard about Matched Betting on Instagram. I had followed a few accounts whose focus was on clearing debt, financial well-being, and making a little cash on the side. A number of them mentioned Matched Betting as a way of making extra cash each month.

Had you ever placed a bet before Matched Betting? Did you know anything about sports at all?

I had dabbled a little, big football matches and a couple of horses on the Grand National, but nothing regular.

How easy or difficult did you find it to learn Matched Betting?

I found it relatively easy to pick up. The tutorial videos were really helpful and I had them playing on my laptop whilst I placed the bets on my phone.

What was your starting bankroll (or cash float)?

In the first month I used around £150 of my own cash- mainly because I was impatient and didn’t want to wait for bets to settle before moving on.

How much profit have you made so far?


Have you bought anything nice with your profit? Or are you saving up for something special?

I have been withdrawing the money as and when I need it. Mainly to cover unexpected expenses such as new ballet shoes for my daughter, a trip to the hairdressers, a service for the car, etc. The extra cash flow has meant I haven't needed to consider reaching for my credit card when these extra expenses crop up. We’re also off to Italy for 5 days next week, the extra cash has lessened the pressure on my finances with the rising cost of living meaning we can still enjoy all the things we love to do.

Do your family and friends understand how you have made the money?

I have explained it to a couple of friends and supported one of those through their initial sign up and first few offers.

Are you a person that tracks everything or do you just roughly tot up your total profits every week or so?

As I don’t have a huge amount of time to dedicate to Matched Betting, tracking every bet on a spreadsheet would be too much for me. I track deposits, withdrawals and current balance in each of my accounts and my spreadsheet shows me my profit for each month.

How much time do you think you spend Matched Betting? When do you tend to do most of your offers?

I would say it’s probably around 1 hour per day.

What kind of offers do you do to make money now?

I do my free spins religiously at 6am with a cup of coffee before my daughter wakes up. As I'm opening each account I have a quick check for any Bet and Get offers that are advertised. If I have time I will also put on any horse racing refunds/BBL offers for the day. I prefer to place bets on horses as I can use matches with higher odds as my liability is only tied up for a short time. I try and only place bets that are settling on the same day wherever possible. I then have a look at Andy Cooper’s Facebook post around 10:30 and see what else I can place during my break.

Once my daughter is in bed for the evening I complete the top casino reloads for the day. I stick to risk-free/low-risk casino only and usually complete the Foxy Bingo, Grosvenor and Small Screen Casino offers every day. The wager £25 get 15 free spin offers on The Phone Casino, Vegas Moose, Red7Slots and Free Daily Spins usually make a decent profit without huge losses to contend with inbetween.

How have you found PA's services so far? What are your favourite features?

The Newbies Facebook group was a lifesaver when I first began. The admin team were so helpful in helping me rectify some silly mistakes.

What advice would you give to someone who is thinking of starting Matched Betting?

Give it a go, take your time and follow the videos exactly, and trust the process.

What would you say to people who think Matched Betting is a scam, gambling or too good to be true?

Do some research and listen to the explanations, it comes down to maths at the end of the day. If you follow the guidance and T’s+C’s you can’t go wrong.

What advice and tips would you give to a new PA member who has just started Matched Betting?

  • Start with a reasonable bankroll to allow you to flow through offers and get a feel of it.
  • Place bets that settle the same/next day. Better to earn £3.50 now than tying your liability up to make £3.60 next week
  • Go slowly, double, triple-check everything.
  • Don’t be afraid to ask for help.
  • Keep an accurate log of your deposits/withdrawals.
  • Do your free spins!

What advice and tips would you give to a PA member who’s just about to start doing reload offers?

  • Start risk-free/low-risk casino! Over 70% of my profit comes from casino now.
  • Ensure you have your 0% commission activated on Smarkets
  • Take every offer no matter how small, a couple of £1.50 profit price boosts each day add up very quickly.

Finally some quick-fire questions...

Football or Horse Racing?

Racing, always

Forum or Facebook?


Betfair or Smarkets?


Sports or Casino?


...and finally, a word or short phrase to sum up how you feel about Matched Betting with PA?

I wish I'd discovered it sooner, but I'm now in for the long haul.
