Winning takes place well before you lay your first bet. Here at Profit Accumulator, our specialist teams make sure we have more offers and promotions than anyone else and all the tools and features you need to maximise your matched betting profits. Here are two of our tools that'll help you get the most from Cheltenham 2020:

Match Catcher

The Match Catcher is a sophisticated matched betting tool designed to help users maximise profits from horse racing.

It compares horse racing odds quickly and finds matches on races that are eligible for refund offers.

For matched bettors hoping to make a serious profit during the Cheltenham Festival, Match Catcher is an essential tool.

It saves time and helps keep qualifying losses as low as possible.

Match Catcher vastly reduces the effort needed to take advantage of horse racing refund offers. Instead of searching through odds manually, up-to-date prices are available in one place and the lay stake is included, so a separate matched betting calculator is not needed.

Horse racing refund offers

Match Catcher allows members to take full advantage of horse racing refund offers.

These reload offers are viewed as one of the key ways of making a long-term profit from matched betting.

An example would be a bookmaker offering a £25 free bet if your horse finishes second. To take advantage of this, it is possible to back and lay horses in an attempt to hit the promotion.

Over time, this can be a very profitable way of matched betting.

The key aspect is keeping the qualifying loss to a minimum and to remember it is a longer-term strategy. Over time, it will pay off.

It's important to keep qualifying losses low and do as many offers as possible.

There are refund offers almost every day, but more at weekends and during high-profile events such as Cheltenham.

Extra Place Catcher

The Extra Place Catcher is an advanced matched betting tool that helps members maximise profits from horse racing extra place offers.

The Extra Place Catcher helps users quickly find low-cost matches for extra place each-way bets, and calculates the stakes required for each stage of the backing and laying process.

We would use this tool in situations where a bookmaker offers an extra place in comparison to what the exchange is offering in a horse race.

So, for example, in a race where a bookmaker would normally payout on 4 places - on extra place races they would pay out on 5.

We can take advantage of this because the exchange will not change its own place terms to match a bookies, the place market on the exchange will still be related to positions 1-4. This means if, in this particular example, our horse finishes 5th we win both our place back bet and our place lay bet - which has the potential to produce very large profits.

Match and Extra Place Catchers at Cheltenham

The Match and Extra Place Catchers really come into their own during busy horse racing periods.

It's great at weekends when there are a lot of meetings and bookmaker offers and even better during Cheltenham week.

The Cheltenham Festival features seven races each day from Tuesday, March 10th to Friday, March 13th - Gold Cup Day.

Millions of pounds are bet over the course of the festival and bookies fight tooth and nail for a slice of the action. This means a vast array of betting offers, including refunds.

And this is where the Match Catcher and Extra Place Catcher are so useful. They feature real-time odds on all the qualifying markets and can be filtered by bookie and exchange to suit your preferences.

Users can also set up alerts to be notified when a match is found that fits a given criteria.
