In this member interview with Adam, we will be covering:
1. How did you find out about matched betting and Team Profit?
I found out about Team Profit from a friend, Stewart, at work.
I’d been persuaded to give it a go by another friend. I opened my first few accounts and Stewart showed me what to bet on and how much, etc.
Then I went into doing it myself when Stewart pointed me in the direction of Team Profit and the rest, as they say, is history!
2. How difficult was it for you to start matched betting?
It was remarkably easy.
The hardest part was convincing my wife (Fiona) that I wasn't risking the little savings we had and that I wasn't going to get addicted to “gambling”.
My friend, Stewart, helped convince my wife and guide me through getting started for a percentage of my profits.
Had somebody pointed me in the direction of Team Profit beforehand, I wouldn't have agreed to it.
The guys at Team Profit, and the fellow matched bettors in the Facebook group, have all been incredible! I'd definitely not be where I am today without them.
Get Started With Matched Betting
3. How does matched betting fit into your weekly routine?
I squeeze time in around my normal daily routine.
Some days I can spare more time than others, making it hard to work out exact times.
I mostly do matched betting during my work breaks and when I get home.
It's a quick look while cooking tea, then a bit more once the kids have been put to bed.
Saturdays are easily my busiest matched betting days, and can be quite heavy going at times.
I don’t know how I cope some weekends. Although lockdown has helped, and the profits definitely make the effort worthwhile on the weekends.
During the week, it can be hard work finding things to make it worthwhile. I follow the boost thread and have recently paid particular attention to the Matchbook Acca thread.
These threads on the Team Profit Facebook group are a godsend, especially when you're busy at work most days.
I set myself a target of averaging £20 per day profit. So far I’ve only missed that target once.
5. What have you done with your profits?
My profits so far have mostly gone into building my bank ready for the transition to Team Casino.
I'm planning on a change of career in the next few months which will hopefully give me more time to move into casino offers.
I have taken a fairly substantial chunk out of my profits to pay for some home improvements.
Our little boy’s bedroom was tiny and couldn't even fit a full size single bed. So we've had some walls moved to make his room bigger.
Next step is two new beds for my youngest two children.
Then it's saving up another chunk of profits to look at either reducing the mortgage or replacing the car. I haven’t decided which yet.
All while maintaining a reasonable bank to keep matched betting as long as I can!
