Can you remember how you first heard about Matched Betting and what you initially thought about it? What convinced you to give it a go?

First read about matched betting on a money saving blog called pennies to pounds. Thought it sounded interesting so checked out PA's website. As 1st 2 bets were free thought I'd give it a try and haven't looked back since.

Had you ever placed a bet before Matched Betting? Did you know anything about sports at all?

Never placed a bet before. Knew a bit about football.

How easy or difficult did you find it to learn Matched Betting?

My head was spinning at first - learning how to use an exchange etc but the videos were a godsend and made it a lot easier.

Can you remember what your starting bankroll (or cash float) was?

Can't remember exactly but a few hundred with access to more if required.

How much money have you made so far?


Have you bought anything nice with your profits? Or are you saving up for something special?

My main goal is to pay off our mortgage so I tend to overpay it every month with matched betting money. Also comes in handy for unexpected bills & holidays (including a cruise).

Do your family and friends understand how you have made the money?

I told my husband, eldest daughter and parents. They understand the basics.

Are you a person that tracks everything or do you just roughly tot up your total profits every week or so?

I track all my profit and love the profit tracker on PA as it shows monthly profits.

How much time do you think you spend Matched Betting? When do you tend to do most of your Matched Betting?

I spend at least 2-3 hours a day matched betting (was a lot longer when I first started up).

What kind of offers do you do to make money now?

I prefer the casino side of things as I find some of the sports offers a bit time consuming & complex but I do bet & gets when available.

How have you found PA’s services so far? What aspects of the PA site do you like the most?

PA offer great customer service from 9am till late evening which means you don't have to wait long for an answer to a question. The forum is fantastic and offers loads of advice and the tutorials are really well done.

What advice would you give to someone who is thinking of starting Matched Betting?

What are you waiting for? Go for it!

What would you say to people who think Matched Betting is a scam, gambling or too good to be true?

I probably would have thought the same until I had a look at the PA site. It does sound too good to be true but once you give it a go you'll find out for yourself how amazing it is, not to mention life changing.

What advice and tips would you give to a new PA member who has just started Matched Betting?

Take your time, read/watch the tutorials for the sign ups and follow the instructions. Don't expect to run before you can walk and use the forum for any help/advice you need. Check and double check before placing/laying bets.

What advice and tips would you give to a PA member who’s just about to start doing reload offers?

With casino in particular I would say there can be ups and downs but the more offers you do the more chance you have of making profit and if you're in doubt then just ask on the forum for help.

Finally some quick fire questions...

Football or Horse Racing?

Forum or Facebook?

Betfair or Smarkets?

Sports or Casino?

...and a word or short phrase to sum up how you feel about Matched Betting with PA?

Life changing!
