At Profit Accumulator, we continually strive to improve our matched betting service and we are pleased to announce the addition of three new calculators.

Members can now access:

These calculators can be found in the Advanced Calculators section of the PA site for all Platinum members. They add to our armoury of bespoke matched betting software and can play an important part in earning sustainable, long-term profits.

The calculators have been formulated and built by our matched betting experts and web development team.

The calculators are designed for members with experience of matched betting and, the chances are, users will not use them for the first few months.

Here's a brief overview of what each calculator offers:

Dutching calculator

Dutching is a betting strategy that involves backing multiple outcomes, to neutralise risk and guarantee a profit.

We added dutching oddsmatching software earlier this year to find opportunities to dutch and now we have a dutching calculator to complement the software.

The dutching calculator has two-way or three-way modes, and a simple and advance setting.

The calculator will help you figure out how much to stake with each bookmaker or exchange and show the potential profit or loss.

Users can chose 'normal' or 'stake not returned' for each bet, depending on the terms of the offer from the bookmaker.

There is 'stake rounding' feature, which should help keep your bookmaker accounts healthy or the ability to enter a maximum total stake override.

Switch to 'advanced' view and you get the option to add commission - for if you are using an exchange to place your back bets.

Users can also see 'break-even' outcomes for bookmakers A, B and C. This offers a method of selecting an option when the user wants to guarantee no lose for a particular option (for example, a strong favourite to win a match).

The dutching calculator is especially useful for earning a profit from tennis offers, where tennis retirement rules sometimes differ between bookmakers and exchanges.

Double Delight, Hat-trick Heaven calculator

Double Delight, Hat-trick heaven (or DDHH as it's commonly referred to) is a regular Betfred offer on first-goalscorer markets. On selected matches, Betfred doubles or trebles the odds if your chosen first goalscorer goes on to score twice or complete a hat-trick.

Because first goalscorer odds are usually quite chunky, this can be a very nice way to boost your earnings.

The DDHH calculator is similar to the standard calculator in that it allows members to input their back stake and odds, as well as their lay stake, lay odds and commission. There is also the functionality to add your own lay stake to adjust the calculation, if needed.

Users can see how much they should lay, what the liability will be and the qualifying loss as a percentage.

The DDHH calculator takes the information to display the amount of profit if a player scores first, scores twice or scores a hat-trick.

Sporting Index Calculator

The improved Sporting Index Offer Calculator can be used to maximise profits from Sporting Index's sign-up offer and refund offers.

A specific calculator is needed because Sporting Index is a spread betting platform, rather than a traditional bookmaker.

Sporting Index offer a sign-up bonus of £100, which can be turned into about £60 with risk-free matched betting. Members can find an in-depth guide on how to complete the offer here.

After finding a match between Sporting Index and an exchange, users can use the calculator in 'refund' mode, to calculator how much to back with Sporting Index and how much to lay on the markets in the exchange. The potential profit is displayed at the bottom.

Sporting Index often email customers with a variety of reload offers - winnings boosts, refund on losses and sometimes a combination of the two. Again, the calculator can be used to earn guaranteed profit whatever the style of offer.
