What Is Matched Betting?
Matched betting is a popular technique that allows individuals to profit from bookmaker free bet promotions. It involves betting on all outcomes of an event, removing the element of chance, whilst at the same time triggering free bets from the respective promotions. These free bets can then, in-turn, be converted to cash profit by using similar matching techniques as before. The reason it is called ‘matched’ is because you are matching your bookmaker bet with an opposite bet on a betting exchange.
Matched betting isn't new and has been around since the first betting exchange was launched back in 1999. Previously this technique was reserved for savvy betting traders only, but thanks to Team Profit and our simple to follow, step-by-step guides, we have made it accessible to absolutely anyone. Over 60 per cent of our members had in-fact never placed a bet in their lives before starting. We guide you through and support you every step of the way, starting with as little as £10 and making up to £800 from the welcome offers alone.

Opening Betting Accounts
This is generally very easy as bookmakers want to make it as quick and easy for new customers to sign up, as possible. The only friction that can sometimes occur is that bookmakers may request proof of your age and address in the form of a photograph.
Proof of ID can be provided in various forms; passport, driving license, voting card, identity card or PAN card. Proof of address in the form of; utility bill, bank statement or similar. Most bookmakers will check your details against the electoral roll, so this is rarely a problem.
