What's your name and where are you from?
Ann & Kris from Leicester
Please can you tell us a bit about yourself?
We have been married for 20 years and have a 10 year old daughter. Kris used to work full-time managing a sales team, but wanted to spend more time with the family, so now works part-time delivering parcels for Amazon.
Ann home educates our daughter, along with being an Avon Rep and volunteering for a children’s charity. We are also both carers for Ann’s disabled parents.
How long have you been a member of Profit Accumulator?
Since June 2021 but we didn’t really start until August 2021, as we were on holiday for much of July.
Can you remember how you first heard about Matched Betting and what you thought about it? What convinced you to give it a go?
We had seen it on Facebook, but weren’t too sure about it. Then one of Ann’s friends said that she did it and explained how it worked.
We thought it was worth doing the free trial to see how it worked, how complicated it was and how much time it would take up.
Had you ever placed a bet before Matched Betting? Did you know anything about sports at all?
We pretty much just used to place bets on the big horse races - Grand National, Gold Cup, The Derby etc.. and that was about it.
Kris is a big sports fan and watches pretty much anything that is on!! Ann still has no clue about sports but does well with the betting.
How easy or difficult did you find it to learn Matched Betting?
It was tricky at first, understanding the maths behind it all, but after watching the training videos over and over and over!! it became second nature..
Don’t get me wrong, we still make little mistakes here and there, but that’s only natural, with the amount of bets we place.
What was your starting bankroll (or cash float)?
How much profit have you made so far?
£3891.82 - this is after taking out our initial bankroll and our annual diamond membership!!
Have you bought anything nice with your profit? Or are you saving up for something special?
We went to Lapland just before Christmas for a week and had an amazing time. We rented a house to ourselves in the middle of a forest and went to see Santa and his elves. Our daughter went to the Husky Park and played with the huskies and she saw the reindeers..it was amazing. This was paid for completely by some of our profits from matched betting.
Do your family and friends understand how you have made the money?
Our family and friends are amazed by it and always ask how we are doing, how much we have now made and it is a real talking point when we get together.
Are you a person that tracks everything or do you just roughly tot up your total profits every week or so?
You will see by the amount we have made, we record everything down to the penny! Even the 2p free spin wins go on there! I think we have nearly 100 completed pages on the profit tracker!
How much time do you think you spend Matched Betting? When do you tend to do most of your offers?
We tend to do around 1.5-2 hours per day. A bit in the morning, but mainly in the afternoon/early evening after work.
We do a bit more at weekends, as that is when most of the events take place and there is a better chance of making bigger profits.
What kind of offers do you do to make money now?
We tend to do mainly bet and gets, bet clubs (although we have been gubbed by quite a few) and price boosts. I like Bet365 boosts, Sky boosts and Betfred Bet X Get X Free Bet.
We have tried a few Casino offers and won a decent amount on the signups, but we are a bit risk averse, so haven't really looked at the higher risk reloads.
How have you found PA's services so far? What are your favourite features?
The training videos are fab and the forum is like my bible for offers and price boosts every day.
We have recently started to use a few more of the advanced calculators, which amaze us and are such a big help when deciding which options to take.
What advice would you give to someone who is thinking of starting Matched Betting?
As Nike would say…Just Do It!
What would you say to people who think Matched Betting is a scam, gambling or too good to be true?
Try the free trial. It’s such a brilliant opportunity to make a bit of easy money. You’ll see how easy it is and how much you can really make.
What advice and tips would you give to a new PA member who has just started Matched Betting?
Take your time, don’t rush into doing every offer that is out there. Make sure that the ones you do, you do correctly and make the most money out of.
Watch the training videos over and over to ensure you understand the process.
Also, join the Facebook group, as there is so much help and support there for both established and new members.
What advice and tips would you give to a PA member who’s just about to start doing reload offers?
Look for the ones that suit you. We have not even looked at 2-Ups or Extra Places yet, as we are more than happy with what we are getting from our current offers (profit guaranteed offers).
There is big money to be made on these, but make sure your bankroll can support your basic wins first.
Finally some quick-fire questions...
Football or Horse Racing?
Horse Racing (Especially when there are BOGS on qualifying bets!!)
Forum or Facebook?
Tricky one….Forum for Boosts and Offers, Facebook for support and advice.
Betfair or Smarkets?
Smarkets 100%, especially with their 0% commission offer..we only use Betfair on the odd occasion.
Sports or Casino?
Sports… nerves are not good enough for Casino..unless it is a risk-free casino offer!
...and finally, a word or short phrase to sum up how you feel about Matched Betting with PA?
Amazing…It has given us the opportunity to earn money from home, for a few hours a day, giving us far better family time.
