Profit Accumulator member Mike has been matched betting for just over two years. Here, he shares a bit more about his matched betting experience.

Whereabouts do you live?

North Wales.

If you work, what is your job?

Self employed, deal in ex-corporate IT equipment on a brokerage level.

How long have you been a member of PA?

Just over two years.

How did you hear about matched betting?

A friend mentioned it to me, who was already a member of PA.

How have you found it?

Easy to pick up and fun to do. It's actually been outperforming my main business at times. I hardly do any matched betting as I find casino loophole/offers are very lucrative and require a fraction of the time/effort.

How much time do you spend on matched betting?

Matched betting maybe an hour a week. Overall, on advantage play, probably 1 or 2 hours a day.

Why does matched betting appeal to you?

Mainly the ease of which it is to make significant and free money. Also I do take pleasure in sticking it to the bookies/casinos who prey on the weak-minded and deliberately disguise their T&C in their favour. As such I have absolutely no sympathy or qualms about anyone taking them for as much as they can.

What do you do with the profit you make?

Day-to-day spends when needed and the odd holiday, although I only take what I need. It's a rainy-day fund and I see it more as 'points' to keep increasing a score, rather than money so don't feel the need to blow it.

Are there any aspects of Profit Accumulator you particularly like?

The forum. It's pretty much all I use these days, aside from infrequent visits to the oddsmatching page.
