The 10 Matched Betting Commandments

Thou Shalt not back "To win both halves" and lay "half-time/full-time"

One of the most common mistakes people make is confusing the "team to win both halves" market with the "half time/full time" market. These are not the same and so you cannot back one and lay the other as your funds will be at risk. 

Thou Shalt not lay before backing

You should never place a lay bet first, ever. The bookmakers are changing their odds all the time, and occasionally they'll restrict accounts without telling people. If you place a lay bet, and then go to place a back bet you might sometimes find you can't get the full amount you want on which will leave you in big trouble.

Thou Shalt not ignore promo terms

It's always a good idea to check the promo terms and make sure you fully understand what to do when taking up an offer.

By this, we mean check how much you need to be betting, what minimum odds you need to be betting on, and what markets you need to bet on. If you don't fullfil the terms properely then you might not get your free bet.

Thou Shalt not gamble

Thou Shalt not commit multi-accounting or speak of it

Multi accounting is a grey area legally speaking and so you shouldn't really do it. Because of this, to cover ourselves and to cover you we ask that you simply don't speak about it either.

 

Thou Shalt check Tom's lunchtime profit's and weekend offers
