Profit Accumulator's matched betting automatcher is one of the essential tools our members use to generate extra income in their own time.

The automatch - or oddsmatcher as it is called at PA - complements the free bet calculator. They are arguably the two most important resources for matched bettors.

They are just two of the bespoke software offerings available to Profit Accumulator members.

Other matched betting software available to PA members includes:

  • Profit Tracker
  • Accumulator bet calculator
  • Each-way calculator
  • Refund calculator
  • Match betting mistake calculator
  • Spreadex calculator
  • Sporting Index calculators
  • Spreadbetting calculator

Profit Accumulator's matched betting automatcher

The automatcher / oddsmatcher allows users to quickly find closely matched back and lay odds to neutralise risk. The matches are rated to show how much profit or loss will be made from the qualifying bet.

The automatcher also displays the date, event, bookmaker, exchange, lay odds, back odds and the amount of liquidity currently available in the given exchange. Users can filter results by sport, market type, bookie and exchange. The results can also be limited by rating, odds, liquidity and timeframe.

There is a direct link with the matched betting calculator, which allows the data to be inputted into the the free bet calculator at the click of a button.

Advanced oddsmatching software

As well as the basic automatcher, Profit Accumulator offers advanced oddsmatching tools - namely, Match Catcher and Acca Catcher.

Match Catcher is state-of-the-art software that finds horse racing bets with lightning-fast odds updates to allow members to take advantage of refund offers.

Acca Catcher is a football accumulator tool that vastly reduces the time and effort to make guaranteed profit from accumulator refunds. Users no longer have to manually search through bookmakers and exchanges or use complicated spreadsheets.

Why automatch tools are essential to matched betting

Matched betting relies on earning an income from the bonuses and free bets that bookmakers and other gaming companies offer to new and existing customers.

Many of these bonuses require an initial bet to be placed to qualify - known in matched betting circles as the "qualifier" or "qualifying bet". This is where the automatcher comes in.

To ensure the qualifier doesn't lose money, or at least to limit the loss made on the qualifying bet, oddsmatching software can be used to find two closely matched bets - that is where the back odds (with the bookmaker) are as close as possible to the lay odds (with the exchange).

(Note: When the back odds are better than the lay odds, an arbitrage or "arb" opportunity. Read more about arbing here).

Members' verdicts

Some feedback from members about Profit Accumulator's automatching software:

MatchBet said: "The notification feature is my favourite part of it. The ability to set up any race, tick all your requirements and just wait for the audible alert saves hours of scouring the sites and allows you to cover so many more events that you wouldn't have done otherwise."

Bones85 said: "Just got it! Wow, this is seriously going to help my horse refund reloads. Great App!

Crakkmoney said: "It's a really great bit of software. Impressive job."

“Have to say that this is superb. Being able to see a live feed of qualifying loss, not having to use the calculator, this is going to make life so much easier.”

“I think it's a game-changer. It reduces my time on racing days down by two hours easy.

"I saw it reduce my overall QL. Since the arrival of the alert system, in my opinion it's brilliant.”
