Please introduce yourself - where are you from and what are your interests?
Hi, I'm Paul from Leicester. I like walking, watching films, only sport I really follow is Boxing which I love watching. I also share-trade in an Isa which I think is a nice fit for Matched Betting.
How did you find out about matched betting?
I was actually looking into joining up to a tipster site. As I was thinking about betting on the boxing, for fun, then I stumbled across some matched betting articles. I spent days reading through everything I could find thinking ‘there’s got to be a catch, there’s no way this can work, is this even legal etc'.
How much money have you made from matched betting so far?
According to my spreadsheet Ive made £94, Ive completed six of the offers with another three in progress today.
How easy or difficult did you find learning matched betting?
At first I didn’t find it easy at all, I was questioning everything and checking everything to make sure nothing was wrong. I’ve still made mistakes, Betfred I haven’t got the free bet yet as I placed my trigger on a European game and it’s still open because I placed the bet ‘to qualify’ somehow so have to wait for the 2nd leg.
How does matched betting fit into your weekly routine?
Very well, just using a spare hour a day at the moment. Though I’m hoping when I get off the welcome offers, I can start doing accas and horse racing etc as well as existing offers, so will be spending more time.
Have you successfully helped anyone you know start Matched Betting?
No, don’t really know anyone else away from the facebook group that does Matched betting.
What have you done (or plan to do) with the money?
Probably spending it on driving lessons for the time being until I can pass my test.
