What's your name and where are you from?
Please can you tell us a bit about yourself?
I’m married with 2 young children aged 2 and 3. I work part time at a college as a work placement officer. We have a dog, hamster, rabbit and a turtle!
How long have you been a member of Profit Accumulator?
I’ve been a member for a year now, last year I just missed out on the Cheltenham festival.
Can you remember how you first heard about Matched Betting and what you thought about it? What convinced you to give it a go?
Times were tough, I was on maternity leave and just found out I had been made redundant. One night I searched how to make money online! It was one of the top searches. I had never heard of matched betting before. The next morning was a Saturday and I mentioned it to my husband that looked at me gone out and said try if it you want but be careful.
I had already got accounts with the bookies on the free trial so I just bit the bullet and paid my first monthly subscription. I made £54 that day.
Had you ever placed a bet before Matched Betting? Did you know anything about sports at all?
I had bet a little before on big events such as the grand national and football etc.
How easy or difficult did you find it to learn Matched Betting?
I watched the first videos and I won’t lie, I was so overwhelmed. The Profit Accumulator Facebook page helped me massively and I spent absolutely ages reading through the posts.
Other newbies were asking questions about the abbreviations etc so I learnt a lot from that. Andy’s morning post also caught my eye and I made it a morning routine to read that and it helped too.
After about a week of seeing for myself the bets settle and free bets being issues I started to understand more and more, I learnt really quickly and before long was moving on to reloads as well as working through the sign ups.
What was your starting bankroll (or cash float)?
I put £200 into Smarkets which I had never heard of before and then had £100 to deposit into bookies.
How much profit have you made so far?
Fast forward to today and I’ve lost track of how much I’ve made so far which is really annoying but I’ve had a little look back and what I’ve spent and bought along the way with the profits and it’s well above £16k. Which is mind blowing!
Have you bought anything nice with your profit? Or are you saving up for something special?
Since starting, I’ve bought a car, had a few little UK holidays, built a play area for my children with artificial grass, a trampoline, play house and other toys. It’s paid for birthday parties and presents, a new MacBook, shark handheld hoover, hen weekend away and most importantly for us if we are short at the end of the month I transfer some money over to help until payday.
Matched Betting has completely transformed mine and my children's life and we don’t go without anymore.
Do your family and friends understand how you have made the money?
My mum and dad know and some close friends. I love talking about it and have introduced a few friends to PA.
Are you a person that tracks everything or do you just roughly tot up your total profits every week or so?
I wish I had tracked my profits to date but the truth is my time is limited and I just got into a routine that takes the less time. Each day I write out on paper the offers available or free bets I have and the QL’s and then the profit gained. At the top I pop my total I’ve made that day just for piece of mind really.
On a Monday each week I add up all the money that’s across bookies and exchanges and work out what I’ve made the previous week. I can see it increasing so I’m happy with that.
How much time do you think you spend Matched Betting? When do you tend to do most of your offers?
I’d say truthfully I spend 1-3 hours per day, that’s spread out across the whole day and I usually have my laptop open and keep go back to it to check the extra place catcher or price boost thread etc.
Saturdays are the busiest for sure but it tends to be the day we are out all day! I get on as much as I can in the morning.
What kind of offers do you do to make money now?
The offers I do are bet and gets, price boosts which I usually like to underlay, extra places, horse refunds and I do casino too.
Best earners have been extra places and casino offers. But, the bet and gets and price boosts are so important in lowering qualifying losses and losses from casino offers. I would never even pass up a £2 free bet.
How have you found PA's services so far? What are your favourite features?
Profit Accumulator is amazing and so so helpful. I have contacted PA on Facebook messenger before for help and the response has been so helpful and quick. I used to like tracking the profits in the profit tracker but annoyingly I stopped!
I like the forums and the Facebook group is so helpful with admins constantly replying and helping people at all hours. If something had happened with a horse race or football match a post explaining what to do goes up straight away.
What advice would you give to someone who is thinking of starting Matched Betting?
It absolutely works, make sure to take your time to learn and take it slow.
It’s okay not to understand at the beginning because it all sort of falls into place as you go along.
What would you say to people who think Matched Betting is a scam, gambling or too good to be true?
Read through the Facebook group, see the comments from real people and what they have achieved...it was enough for me!
What advice and tips would you give to a new PA member who has just started Matched Betting?
Ask for help and support from admins and other users. It helps so much just to read through the daily post from Andy.
What advice and tips would you give to a PA member who’s just about to start doing reload offers?
Do the offers that you are comfortable with. Take time to learn the ones your not and ask for help.
Check, check and double check every bet you place.
Finally some quick-fire questions...
Football or Horse Racing?
Forum or Facebook?
Betfair or Smarkets?
Matchbook for me
Sports or Casino?
Arghhh both!! Sorry can’t pick.. they both increase my bank roll.
...and finally, a word or short phrase to sum up how you feel about Matched Betting with PA?
It’s my addiction!
