Caroline, who lives in London, joined Profit Accumulator in early 2017 to make extra money. She shares her matched betting story...

How long have you been a member of PA?

For about six months.

How did you hear about it - were you sceptical at first?

I was looking for a way to make some money on the side and a friend told me about PA. I was a bit put off because it involves betting, but my friend convinced me to give it a try and I'm so glad I did.

How have you found it?

It was quite daunting at first but after the free trial, I understood it a lot more.

What do you do with the profit you make?

With the money I’ve made, I’m saving for a holiday. I couldn’t imagine not having the extra money every month.

How much time do you spend on matched betting?

It only takes me an hour or two each evening. I don't do too much at weekends - I know I could earn extra money if I did more.

Why does matched betting appeal to you?

I like the fact I can dip in and out of it. It hasn't got in the way of my social life or doing other things that a second job might.

What would be your advice to someone thinking of trying matched betting?

Give it a try. I knew nothing about sports or betting but it doesn’t really matter, it’s just really easy. It’s really fantastic and I’ve recommended it to all my friends.
