Profit Accumulator member James has been matched betting since January this year and has just used his profits to buy himself a car. Here's his story so far:

Whereabouts do you live?


Are you married, do you have kids?

I have a girlfriend, but no kids!

If you work, what is your job?

I go to college currently where I'm studying IT.

How long have you been a member of PA?

I joined up just after Christmas last year.

How did you hear about it?

I came across the PA Facebook page and decided to give the free trial a go. I was sceptical for a while but it continued to prove me wrong and now I love it.

How have you found it?

It was a bit daunting at first because I felt like there was no way to beat the bookie. However, with the help of the forum and the tutorial videos, I've found it to be pretty smooth sailing.

What do you do with the profit you make?

I use it now and again to treat myself to new clothes, concert tickets, etc. But I saved up most of it and recently bought myself a car!

How much time do you spend on matched betting?

Probably on average about 20 hours a week!

Why does matched betting appeal to you?

I get to do it when it suits me, which means I'm making extra money when I would normally be doing nothing.

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

Just give it a go, you will be in the exact same position I was at the start. But, I can honestly say you won't regret it.

Are there any aspects of Profit Accumulator you particularly like?

The community is great. It really eases your mind to know that there's thousands of others in the same position you are.
