It's vital to check your emails - I would say at least once in the morning and once late afternoon, every day.
The bookmakers will be sending you offers to your inbox that you can profit from.

Some bookmakers send more offers by email than they actually have on their site, a good example of this at the moment is ComeOn! (one of my favourite bookies at the moment).

If you find a good offer then please post it on the forum here.

Bookies send out new offers practically every day. Some of these will be sent direct to your email or to your phone by text message.

Some will be straightforward and easy but some, (especially casino ones), may not be as clear cut.

The absolute best thing for you to do if you are not sure if the offer is worth doing is to ask on the forum!

You can then get a reply from one of the admin team or one of the helpful forum members and know whether or not the offer is indeed worth doing.

James says it's important to mix up your stake sizes.

He says: "Don’t do every £25 promotion with a £25 bet or you will look like you are just hitting it for the bonus. If the offer is “up to £25” then you can do less.

"Even doing £20 will give you a good profit and not look like your just there for the bonus.

"Also you can bet more than the minimum too, this will also look better on your account as it won't look like you are after the bonus but just having a bet."

"If you ever need to go on live chat with a bookie then always save the chat transcript.

"That way you always have proof of what you were told and they will have to honour it.

"You can normally send it to your email but if there is no option for that then just copy and paste it somewhere to keep hold of."
