  1. Matched betting profit after 4 months: £2172.76

    May Matched Betting Profits: £465.95

    Have you heard of matched betting, but you’re feeling a bit unsure about it?  I started matched betting in January this year and only wish I’d started sooner!  I, too, was very wary and thought it was a scam, but so far I’ve made over £2000!  The best thing is this cash is tax free as it’s classed as gambling money.  Though there are offers that are technically gambling as you become an advanced matched bettor, there are plenty of risk free offers that mean you always know how much you’re going to profit before placing the bets!

    It’s not all risk free

    There certainly are risks when matched betting, such as human error, accounts being gubbed or matches cancelled, so take it slow and start small!  So far I’ve been gubbed from four bookies which means I can still use them, but I don’t qualify for any of their offers or free bets.  It’s possible to avoid this by mug betting – placing pretend bets to look like a real customer.  But I’m guilty of not doing this yet as I just don’t have the time.  Some people say they only ever do the offers and never get gubbed, so there doesn’t seem to be a proper formula for why people are gubbed.  Even if you are a regular punter and get lucky by winning all the time, the bookies will probably ban you or restrict your stakes as you are not profitable to them.  Cheeky isn’t it!

    I also had a match cancelled on one of my accas.  This is where I placed 5 bets in one and then lay them off sequentially.  I panicked as a match was cancelled, but luckily it was rescheduled before the next match began giving me time to lay off the next one.  Phew!  I would probably have lost money if the timings weren’t in my favour!

    Another thing to note is make sure you have signal if you’re matched betting on your mobile!  I had a couple of acca legs to lay off when we were on the motorway one day and had 15 minutes to do it between football matches.  Itotally lost signal! Arg! The odds changed so much I lost around £10.  Not a huge amount, but this is roughly how much I make from each acca, so I was quite annoyed!  Now I’ll make sure I’m at home if the matches are close together or give myself at least one hour between games.

    On to the positives

    But it’s not all doom and gloom as I made £465.95 in May!  That’s a great figure as I was only expecting to make a couple of hundred!  I’m still learning, but I’m very pleased with earning over £2000 in four months.  It’s pretty much a part time job and wage that I can do from home.

    Bingo offers

    I had a go at three bingo offers which are not risk free in May and made £30 in five minutes on one of them!  I’m going to try a few more this month, but I get a little nervous as they aren’t risk free and I don’t like losing money!  At least I know I’ll never properly gamble as I hate losing!

    Weekly free bet clubs

    I’ve been making a regular amount from the weekly bet clubs.  These are so quick to do and you can get a few regular weekly free bets if you take part.  I usually place bets on football as I find it easier and not confusing at all, but I’m told the football season has come to an end so I may need to find new sports to place bets on.

    Profit Accumulator

    I use PA to do all my matched betting.  I use their software to find close matches between the bookies and exchanges, and then their calculator tells me the amounts to place on each.  If I get stuck I read through the forums to find the answers to my questions.  I currently pay £17.99 per month and it’s more than worth it.  They also tell me all the latest offers and rate them so I know which offer is risk free and which isn’t.

    April Matched Betting Profits £365

    Do you want to make some extra income from home in your spare time?  Or perhaps, like me, you are a mum to young children and want to earn around mum duties?  Matched betting could be for you!

    I’ve been matched betting since the end of January this year and have made £1706.81 in total, even with a few beginners mistakes along the way.

    Read on to see just how much I made in April.

    April profit: £365

    Total profit: £1706.81

    I love a round figure!  In April 2017 I made exactly £365 from matched betting. 

    It would be an extra £17.99 too, but I realised last month I added my £17.99 profit accumulator membership fee to my spreadsheet instead of subtracting it, doh!  So I’ve taken it off this month’s instead rather than updating my blog posts and everything else.

    I’m very pleased with £365 especially as we had the two week’s Easter holidays in April and the children only went to childcare for 1.5 mornings.  I wasn’t able to get half as much betting done as I’d normally be able to, but I still managed just over £90 per week.

    I’m also very pleased with this figure as it is the first month I’ve purely done reload offers.  Before April I was still working my way through the beginner’s offers which are the most lucrative and most of them are simple and fast to complete.

    I have said before I was curious to whether I could continue to make a profit once the beginner’s offers ran out, and now I know it’s possible!

    I can also see now how I can make even more money, but I’d need to invest more time into matched betting.  At the moment I feel I am putting in the maximum time per week around mum duties, work, blogging and everything else!  I’d have to sacrifice a day at the weekend to make more money, but for now I’m happy with a few hundred to top up the rest of my earnings.

    My new aim is £300 per month from matched betting.  I’ve actually just handed my notice in at my part time job and you can read my recent blog post How I’m going to make £1000 a month as a Mum working from home which shares my new money targets.

    Here's how I made my matched betting money this month:

    Making money from accas

    I’ve started trying the accas using the acca catcher at Profit Accumulator.  I’m using the refund lock in method to guarantee I make a profit on each one.  I’ve only tried three of these so far and I’ve made £40.  These are definitely profitable if you do them each week, imagine doing several a week!  I just have to remember to lay all the bets and set up email reminders for myself.  It definitely takes some organising and isn’t as simple as laying one bet and forgetting about it.  Five bets need to be laid sequentially once each match has taken place.  I’m starting with a few and then I’ll build these up to make more profit as I get the hang of them and work out a system.

    Making money from bingo and casino offers

    I have tried all the risk free slots offers and not surprisingly I made £0 and wasted a lot of time!  Though it’s not really time wasted if you win!  Many members in the forums report £200+ wins so it’s all down to luck and if it’s risk free then it’s worth a shot. 

    I have also tried some bingo offers which are not risk free.  So far I won £40 on the first offer, lost £10 on the second and won just under £2 on the third.  So overall I’m up.  The guides explain the odds of winning are in your favour the more you complete using the bonuses and the methods they tell you.  I’m going to trust them as everything has been true so far and keep having a go at the bingo offers.  These are mostly managed by the same company across a variety of websites so they advise only completing one per week to avoid accounts being banned and money withheld.  I plan on sticking to the advice and will slowly work my way through one site per week.

    Reload offers

    I’m surprised at how many reload offers there have been.  There are some of the same ones each week and then a load more at the weekend.  The weekends are really very profitable, but they are also the time we have together as a family to enjoy days out.  I have to just accept that I can’t do all these offers and will have to miss out if we have plans or I’ll have no signal!  I’ve been mostly placing all the bets on my laptop as I find it much easier, but I’ve been attempting some on my phone.  Using the mobile sites means I’ll be able to place bets from anywhere with signal and won’t be restricted to using my laptop only.

    Profit Accumulator

    I highly recommend using Profit Accumulator for matched betting as a beginner.  They have so many guides and walk you through the whole process in the first few offers.  If you are stuck you can ask a question in the forum and someone will get back to you.  They also have a 30 day money back guarantee on their memberships, though you can try the first couple of offers without signing up to anything.

    Make extra cash easily from home with matched betting

    Have you heard of Matched Betting?  It’s a risk free way to earn some extra cash from home in your spare time, or some even make it into a full time tax free income!  Wow!

    Read on to see just how much I made in March 2017 and how I'm getting on.

    March profit = £588.19

    Total matched betting profit since 20th January 2017 = £1341.81

    I’ve been matched betting since the 20th January and I’m pleased to report my total earnings in just over two months are £1341.81 – amazing!

    This is tax free cash that I do not have to declare as it’s classed as ‘gambling’ money.  But don’t be fooled by that word as I’m not technically gambling as I know exactly how much profit I’ll make before I place my bets thanks to Profit Accumulator who talk me through the entire matched betting process and make it really simple.

    My profit for March is £588.19 which I’m very happy with.

    I was still working my way through the beginners offers which look to be the most profitable.  I only have three beginner’s offers left to do, but they aren’t so straightforward and having read the forums attached to them, I’m not sure I’ll attempt them.  We’ll see.

    The forums at Profit Accumulator provide a wealth of information and the members are super supportive.  Everyone helps each other and you can ask questions if you are stuck or unsure.

    I’ve started working my way through the casino offers, but I never have much luck with these.  These are offers for free spins on slots mainly.  I never win!  I did win £40 on a free scratch card, but that’s been my only win like this so far.  They are quite time consuming, but I’ll work my way through them all as it’s free money if I do win, so might as well try!  There are screenshots from people in the forums who have won £200ish, so it can happen.

    I’m also going to take a look at the bingo offers in April and have a go at the risk free ones.


    Now I’m through the sportsbook sign up offers I need to get my head around the reload section.  I’ve already been doing some of these (the easy ones I understand), but it’s not enough to make a good profit every month.

    I need to learn to do the accas and horse racing to make good money ongoing it would seem.  Luckily Profit Accumulator have reduced their monthly membership fee this month to only £17.99 a month AND they’ve included two bits of software in this package – Match Catcher and Acca Catcher – which find horse races and accas to bet on and do all the sums!  Sounds easy!  They were previously charging extra for each bit of software, so it’s amazing it’s all included.

    At the time of writing this Profit Accumulator are letting you trial their membership for free for one whole month!

    Earn some extra cash (easily) from the comfort of your own home

    If you're looking for a way to make some extra income from home with a small amount of effort on your part, you need to try matched betting.  I'm quite the beginner myself having only started my matched betting journey at the end of January 2017, but I'm already making a great profit.  I'm still so surprised it's not a scam as it really seems too good to be true, but it is true!  I'll be blogging my journey so you can keep up to date with my profits and see just how easy it is to make more money from home as a stay at home mum (or as anyone!)

    £753.62 Matched Betting Profit Month One (and silly mistakes)

    I’m still a total newbie and have so much to learn, but I’m so amazed already.  I thought it was going to be a total scam as most of these ‘earn money risk free from home’ things are.  It’s also hard to promote matched betting without making it sound too good to be true, but it really works!

    I’m still making my way through the beginner's offers, but have started a few reload offers.  The most money is definitely in the sign up offers, so it will be interesting to see how much I can continue to make with just reload offers next month.  There are plenty of testimonials to prove money can continue to be made.  It might just take a bit more time or effort I suppose.  I’ll let you know as I plan to share each month’s profit at the end of every month for my duration of betting.

    By the end of my first 40 days I was over £750 in profit, even with some mistakes, and a week into my ‘second’ month I am now another £100 in profit!  Woohoo!

    I think even if I make £300 a month that will be great.  Crikey, even £200 would be amazing.  I’d like to make at least ten times the monthly free for profit accumulator to justify the fee and time spent.

    If you’re still not sure about it then give the two offers profit accumulator show you for free a go.  It took me around one hour to place my first bet, making sure I’d read everything 100 times and double checked my entries numerous times!  But as soon as those first two free bets settled, I had made money just as they said I would.

    Make extra money from home easily with matched betting

    You may have read my first blog post about matched betting titled How I made £300 tax free cash from home in two weeks and you can too!  I’m now 40 days in, but as I started on 20th January I’ve decided to tag those last days onto February and do a monthly roundup of my total profit.  I work everything else out on a month by month basis, so it will be easier to calculate it at the end of each month from now on.

    Read on to see how much money I have made in my first month of matched betting.

    matched betting make extra cash money from home stay at home mum work blog

    £753.62 profit matched betting for 40 days

    It should actually be around £100 more.  But I made a few mistakes.


    Mistake 1

    I took a big hit on one of the offers where I didn’t realised it was a bonus with 30x wagering and not a normal free bet.  I didn’t have enough bank roll to do this offer, so once all my bankroll ended up in the bookies I had no money left in the exchange to continue the offer.  Arg.  I had to admit defeat and withdraw my winnings which cancelled a £200 bonus as I hadn’t played £100 through 30 times.

    Lesson learned.  Make sure you have a large enough bank roll if the wagering requirements are large.  I lost a lot here.

    Mistake 2

    Quite near the beginning I won a bet into a bookies, around £15, went to withdraw but couldn’t.  Turned out I needed £18 in the account to withdraw.  You can’t just deposit more in this one and instantly withdraw as you have to wager the deposit first. 

    I thought I was stuffed so just randomly bet on something and lost the money.  I should have also lay my bet and made a tiny loss, but I would have been able to then withdraw once over £18 or the money would win into the exchange.   I stupidly didn’t work this out and lost the £15.

    A very silly mistake to make and the solution was so obvious.  There's always a way to withdraw.  Lesson learned.

    Mistake 3

    I took part in a reload offer, but somehow did it totally wrong and lost £10.  Make sure you fully read the instructions and then read them again before doing anything!

    Lesson learned.


    I’ve also paid £46 in fees for my Profit Accumulator membership which I’ve deducted off my total profit.  Usually this will be only £23, but I started paying on 23rd Jan, so as I’m rolling over the last days of Jan into this roundup I paid my fees twice for these 40 days.


    Even with my silly mistakes and two lots of fees going out I’m still £753.62 in profit which is a great start.  I’ve also been slowed down by having to wait for my bank to grow big enough to take part in some of the offers which require a larger bank.  I’ve also been held up by waiting for withdrawals to clear into my bank before I can place new bets.  If you have more money to start with then you won’t be as held back.  I’m a little scared to put any more of my own money in in case I do mess up.  At least if I mess up with the matched betting profit I won’t be risking my ‘own’ money.  I read another blogger made £1800 in their first month so making a lot more is doable!

    I’ve spent around 30 mins to 2 hours a day doing the bets, watching the guides and trying to get my head around it all!  I’ve got a lot quicker at placing the bets.  It also takes more time when you start as you have to sign up to every bookie.  But once signed up, the reloads will be a lot quicker as you just have to log in.

    I’m still working through the beginners section.  I’ll hopefully move onto reloads in month two and it will be interesting to see how much I continue to make.

    I’m super chuffed with making over £750 in 40 days though!  Around blogging, my part time job and being a mummy this is some great extra income from home.

    Profit Accumulator

    If you want to give it a go I highly recommend Profit Accumulator.  They talk you through two offers before you have to join them as a member so you can make around £40 to see how easy it is.  They also regularly have offers where you can try it for a month or so for free before committing to the membership free.  You just have to give it a go!
