Please introduce yourself - where are you from and what are your interests?
I’m Chris, 21 from Derbyshire currently a Business student at Portsmouth Uni. I enjoy playing tennis and squash and often go road cycling.
How did you find out about matched betting?
I found out about matched betting through a post on Save the Student and later popped up again on a forum I was a member of. I completed the welcome offers and thought that was it until a friend of mine mentioned a year later about how he was making thousands of pounds. I did a bit more research and found Team Profit and realised that matched betting goes much, much further than the welcome offers.
How much money have you made from matched betting so far?
I made around £350 from the welcome offers last year and since starting again this January I have made close to £400 profit. So a profit of £750 so far.
How easy or difficult did you find learning matched betting?
Matched betting was a little tricky to get my head round at first but once you’ve done 3 of the welcome offers it becomes natural. There are lots of different types of offers to learn about but with the guides you can find online it’s pretty simple to learn. I’ve made lots of mistakes through carelessness and rushing so I would strongly recommend for beginners to relax and take your time to make sure you fully understand what you’re doing.
How does matched betting fit into your weekly routine?
As a student I have a lot of free time. I check the offers daily and it’s become part of my morning routine.
Have you successfully helped anyone you know start Matched Betting?
My Dad is really against gambling of any sorts and has never been interested in placing a bet on anything. When explaining I had made £200 online in my first week, he took an interest and I showed him the ropes.
What have you done (or plan to do) with the money?
I’ll be studying in Beijing next year as an exchange student. The money I make matched betting will allow me to travel to surrounding countries during the holidays. The only downside is that it’ll be a little tricky matched betting in China.
