What's your name and where are you from?
Nic, South Yorkshire
Please can you tell us a bit about yourself?
I’ve just turned 30. I have a 6 month old and a 2.5 year old. I’m currently not working and am a stay-at-home parent looking after both my children.
How long have you been a member of Profit Accumulator?
I first joined PA in March 2021 - I gave it a go for a few weeks and then quickly got swept up in the chaos of life with a toddler and a being pregnant with our bonus baby! After the birth of my son in December, my partner and I decided that the best thing for our family would be for me to stay at home with the children until they are school age, a variety of factors influenced this decision; childcare costs; work-life balance, etc.
But it quickly became apparent to me that having no income at all would be very difficult for me to adjust to mentally. I have always been very self-sufficient. So in February 2022, I decided to have a nosy back on the Facebook group and see what was what.
Safe to say 2 days later with a bankroll of £100 I had re-subscribed and delved back into it and I can’t begin to say how glad I am I did.
Can you remember how you first heard about Matched Betting and what you thought about it? What convinced you to give it a go?
I think it was from googling ‘how to earn money from home’ or ‘how to earn money online’. I will have ended up on a forum with people raving about it.
I remember when I initially read up on it thinking this can’t be right - why wouldn’t everyone be doing it? I then found the PA site and saw the £1 trial offer and thought I wasn’t committing any money by just signing up to view the software and training guides and if after that I changed my mind it was less than a packet of hobnobs I'd spent.
When I then did sign up, I watched the initial tutorial videos and read through the guides, looked up what the exchanges were (as until that point I hadn’t the foggiest what an exchange was) and I decided to give it a go. The website was sleek and easy to use, and the guides were set out so I couldn’t go wrong. All these people on Facebook and multiple forums rave about it so it's got to be worth a shot.
Had you ever placed a bet before Matched Betting? Did you know anything about sports at all?
Yearly on the National. As kids, my Dad would always let me and my sister choose 2 horses each, and into adulthood every year I'd have to do the same. That was the grand sum of my betting expertise. I enjoy watching horse racing but know little about it, the same goes for most sports. I'm a willing spectator but by no means an armchair expert!
How easy or difficult did you find it to learn Matched Betting?
What was your starting bankroll (or cash float)?
When I initially signed up £50. The second time around £100.
How much profit have you made so far?
This time around I’ve just hit £8,000 profit.
Have you bought anything nice with your profit? Or are you saving up for something special?
My partner and I enjoyed a weekend in London with no guilt about spending anything as it was all from Matched Betting profits.
We took my children to the seaside for a week and the spending money was all from Matched Betting profits.
Thirdly - A double pushchair Lol! Something which probably seems very trivial and unexciting. Yes, it was a necessary purchase but without having the disposable income Matched Betting has given me there is no way I could have justified spending £700 to buy the one I really wanted.
Do your family and friends understand how you have made the money?
Quite simply - NO!
Are you a person that tracks everything or do you just roughly tot up your total profits every week or so?
Initially yes, every single penny, every single day was accounted for. Now I have a rough idea of where my profits sit for the day. I still track all my bets but I can sleep at night without having to add every penny up every night. Now I’ll do a weekly round-up.
How much time do you think you spend Matched Betting? When do you tend to do most of your offers?
I do it most days when I get the opportunity. My priorities are still entirely my family and my home, but when there’s a spare few minutes I’ll check what I can. Saturdays are easier for me and parenting is shared so I can lock my attention on to it for things that require it more like extra places.
What kind of offers do you do to make money now?
I do both sports and casino now. To start with as I said every penny was too precious to me to consider any form of risk with casino so daily free games were as far as that went. Now I have a bankroll I'm comfortable with attempting casino offers.
I do any profitable sports offer, I really enjoy extra places, started 2UPS a bit late in the season. Horse racing refunds are my most consistent earner - this is probably because they are the offer I can do most frequently given my time constraints.
How have you found PA's services so far? What aspects do you like the most?
The PA services and all the team are great. They are quick to pick up questions and respond via the forum and the threads on there really help to make matched betting more profitable.
What advice would you give to someone who is thinking of starting Matched Betting?
Give it a go! If there’s anything that confuses you or you stumble with the process, the whole community is brilliant and there is always someone willing to help.
What would you say to people who think Matched Betting is a scam, gambling, or too good to be true?
I get it, I thought it too. There’s plenty of information out there to say otherwise and if you can’t be bothered to read that then Matched Betting probably isn’t for you.
What advice and tips would you give to a new PA member who has just started Matched Betting?
Take it at your own pace. Don’t panic if you make errors, we’ve all made them even some of the pros will still make them occasionally. Track everything, just on pen and paper, you don’t need a fancy spreadsheet to begin with. But, tracking everything will show you how your profits are growing which is always nice, helps you to identify any anomalies which someone could help you fix and keeps track of where your money is.
What advice and tips would you give to a PA member who’s just about to start doing reload offers?
Probably the same, take it at your own pace. I think with every stage you progress to with Matched Betting, taking time to digest the information and get a handle on the processes is really important.
Finally some quick-fire questions...
Football or Horse Racing?
