What's your name and where are you from?

Liam. Barnsley

Please can you tell us a bit about yourself?

23, currently in a relationship, no kids, I’m a full time vehicle technician at a main dealer.

How long have you been a member of Profit Accumulator?

3 months

Can you remember how you first heard about Matched Betting and what you initially thought about it? What convinced you to give it a go?

The first time I heard of matched betting and PA was on a suggestion on Facebook, I think this was due to me following betting tipster pages etc. on social media. I looked into it, watched the videos, looked at the reviews and joined the Facebook group then decided to give it a go

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

As mentioned above, yes. I did the occasional bit off betting with tips from tipster pages etc which never really worked out. I’ve never really been crazy about football, but I’m a lot more interested and know a lot more about it now than I did months ago.

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

I thought it was straight forward. I just used the training video’s and watched the a few times until it clicked. If I ever needed any help, I would just message the PA Facebook page.

What was your starting bankroll (or cash float)?

think my starting bankroll was around the 2–300-pound mark.

How much profit have you made so far?

On the profit tracker its showing I’m at the £2.2k mark but the last 2 weeks I haven’t been using the profit tracker! (Whoops!)

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

When I first started I put some of my profits back into my current account that I’d originally used it from. I have just bought myself a nice 2 in 1 laptop/tablet to do my matched betting on. Before, I was using my phone, which was alright, but it sometimes causes issues. Especially when doing more advanced stuff. I’m also wanting to get back into graphic design as I was quite good at it when I was at school so I would like to use it for that too.

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

I’ve managed to persuade a couple of friends to sign up, which was quite difficult. People who I mention it to at work and family members don’t really understand it I think. They think its straight up gambling but I’ve tried to explain how it works but there’s no getting through.

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

As I said previous I haven’t been using the profit trackers for the last few weeks or so. But I have downloaded some spreadsheets to try and keep track of where everything is as when you have multiple bets open at once it can be quite difficult to keep track of things.

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

Mainly weekends when I’m off work. If there’s any nice offers or boosts on at work ill jump on them and ill probably do maybe an hour or so after work sometimes.

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

I think the customer service has been great and definitely the best thing about it. The Facebook group and the forum, I love that everyone comes together to help everyone.

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

Go for it! One of the best things I’ve done. It can sometimes be time consuming but it does pay off and its tax free!

What would you say to people who think Matched Betting is a scam, gambling or too good to be true?

Try it and see for yourself!

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

Start slow, work your way up, use the group and the forum. Ask questions if you need to because everyone’s there to help.

Finally some quick fire questions...

Football or Horse Racing?

Forum or Facebook?
Forum as more dedicated threads.

Betfair or Smarkets?

Sports or Casino?

...and a word or short phrase to sum up how you feel about Matched Betting with PA?

It really isn't too good to be true! It really works.
