What's your name and where are you from?

Lewis from Buckley, North Wales

Please can you tell us a bit about yourself?

22 years old, working as a full time electrician.

How long have you been a member of Profit Accumulator?

Since 15th of November 2020 (just over 5 months)

Can you remember how you first heard about Matched Betting and what you initially thought about it?

Heard about it when I was 18, wanted to start but didn’t have enough money or trust that it was this easy. Seen it again on Facebook advert in November and went from there.

Had you ever placed a bet before Matched Betting? Did you know anything about sports at all?

I don’t know a great deal about sports but did do some betting in the past with BET365 and Skybet.

How easy or difficult did you find it to learn Matched Betting?

Super easy following the tutorial videos! I picked up the whole process in a matter of hours

What was your starting bankroll (or cash float)?

I think roughly about £400-£500

How much profit have you made so far?


Have you bought anything nice? Or are you saving up for something special?

My matched betting profits currently pay for my mortgage every month, and all other bills leaving my wages free for whatever else I want

Do your family and friends understand how you have made the money?

Nope, they all think I am now a gambling addict and don’t like me talking about it. Haha

Are you a person that tracks everything or do you just roughly tot up your total profits every week or so?

I track every single back and lay bet in the PA tracker, and then track profits at the end of each month in my own spreadsheets which generates a nice fancy bunch of graphs and stats.

How much time do you think you spend Matched Betting? When do you tend to do most of your Matched Betting?

I do it roughly so anything between 1-2 hours throughout a day, maybe some more on the weekends when there is more offers. But also treat myself to odd days off it if I’m in good profit for the week

What kind of offers do you do to make money now? Do you stick to just sports offers or do you do casino offers too?

I have only done the risk free sign up offers for the casino probably only making about £5 lol. My favourite offer at the minute is the racing refunds on sky and paddy, along with all other bet and gets, sometimes do the odd 2up and landed a few extra places too.

How have you found PA's services so far? What aspects do you like the most?

I love the extra place catcher, and the forum is really useful for a bit of help and suggested bets with low QLs. Profit tracker is also brilliant

What advice would you give to someone who is thinking of starting Matched Betting?

Have a go at it and check everything! If you’re stuck give anyone in the team a message as they are brilliant help.

What would you say to people who think Matched Betting is too good to be true?

Have a read up on it

What advice and tips would you give to a new PA member who has just started Matched Betting?

Keep going! Don’t do too many price boosts or you’ll be gubbed quick, definitely if the loss is low enough stick a bit more than asked for the offer, (bet £20 for the free bet instead of £10)

What advice and tips would you give to a PA member who’s just about to start doing reload offers?

Its not as easy money, but it’s a marathon not a sprint
