Profit Accumulator is home to thousands of members who earn cash through matched betting every month.

We have a thriving forum, where users share tips, advice and chat, as well as a large following on social media.

Here, we find out a bit more about one of our members.

What's Your Name?


Whereabouts Do You Live?

Prescot, Merseyside. About eight miles from Liverpool city centre.

Do You Have Family?

I'm married with three kids - two girls and a boy.

What Is Your Job?

I work as a mechanical design engineer in Bolton.

How Long Have You Been A Member Of PA?

I think it has been roughly around 12 months. Although it is only this week that I have opened a separate bank account and got some funds in it ready to go.

I opened a new account as I wanted to keep this completely separate from my normal account.

How Have You Found It?

After doing the first few sign-ups, I found time difficult and ended up dipping into the small profit I had made. I am now ready to dedicate time to this as it could make a massive difference to our lifestyle.

I have found the first sign-ups good and have found the tutorials very helpful, although I need to take the time to get my head into the deeper stuff.

I need to get stuck in, basically. I have also found the website and forum very helpful and very well set out.

How Much Time Do You Spend On Matched Betting?

Not enough, really. Although my intention now is to spend between one and two hours a day on this.

I just hope that I can get my head into it and understand it all properly.

Why Does Matched Betting Appeal To You?

The idea of tax-free money. As I said earlier, it could come in very handy.

Even though I am on a decent wage at work I am sick of just existing. I want to be comfortable financially.

What Do You Do With The Profit You Make?

I am intending to build up my betting bank over the next couple of months before I even consider dipping into it.

Then the money will hopefully be used to pay of things like credit cards and basically just make a difference to our monthly outgoings.

Are There Any Aspects Of Profit Accumulator You Particularly Like?

The website and forum are very good. I like the fact that there is a community.

It's not a case of just being left to it.
