What is Matched Betting? How to Exploit Bookmaker Sign Up Offers

What is Matched Betting?

Matched betting is a low risk form of gambling, typically on sporting events. This is also commonly referred to as ‘bonus hunting’. By using free bets and other promotions, matched bettors guarantee profits by having all outcomes of a match or an event covered.

Whilst people think that free bets are in limited supply, with no-risk matched betting you can ensure they keep coming in day after day.

“It is a betting technique used by individuals to profit from free bets and other incentives offered by bookmakers. It is generally considered risk-free as it is based on the application of a mathematical equation rather than chance.” – Wikipedia.

The definition above makes things seem a little complicated, so let’s try and describe it in a way that you can easily understand:

Black Friday betting deals

Black Friday & Cyber Monday Betting Offers (The Best of the Web!)

Most posts that you read at this time of year will tell you how you can spend your hard-earned cash on loved ones (or yourself!) over Christmas.

This post is very different. 

We’re hoping this can help you earn money, rather than spend it!

We’ve been scouring the web for the best Black Friday and Cyber Monday betting deals, and we’ve rounded them up here in one place.

With the Cyber Monday offers below and a bit of hard work, your Christmas may be paid for.

Please remember, some of these offers were exclusive to Black Friday and therefore will now be expired.



MatchedBets £1 Deal

MatchedBets Logo

You can join MatchedBets for just £1 today via this link.

You won’t find the offer on their site and therefore must go through the link above.

We recommend trying to be a part of multiple matched betting communities and groups if you’re looking to take this seriously — you never know where the next big loophole will be discovered!

In the £1 deal, you’ll get full premium access for a week, meaning you can access all of the offers, tools and the community.


Caan Berry Trading Products

If you’re interested in learning to trade on Betfair Exchange (where you can’t get gubbed!) then Caan’s horse racing trading guide or video pack might be of use.

Or, maybe his tennis trading guide might interest you.

Caan’s trading guides (both horse racing and tennis) are almost half price, and his advanced video pack has a massive £50 off.

All three products are available right here.

We reviewed the video pack on this site previously and rated it 5-stars!


Free Lottery

This is a really simple one.

There is a free national lottery. It is free forever.

The draws are done every day, and twice weekly.

It is completely free, there is no catch.

As matched bettors, we love free money. So it’s worth being involved for the chance of an extra win every day!

Good luck!

Extra Place offers & each way bet tips

Each Way Betting System & Profiting from Extra Place Offers

Are you looking to profit from each way bets and extra place offers?

It’s extra places that allow me to pull in my biggest and most consistent profits each month.

The reason these types of bets are so great is simple:

You’re not limited by the size of potential free bets — meaning you can win hundreds or thousands in profit from a single race — and you can use gubbed accounts too.

Whilst things may seem confusing to pick up at first, everything becomes clear once you have placed a few bets for yourself.

Fortunately for you, I’ve made the process even easier for you.

Let’s take a look: (more…)

How to play small pocket pairs

How to Play Small Pocket Pairs

We’ve all had the struggle of thinking of the best way to play small pairs in no-limit hold’em.

They can be difficult pre-flop and post-flop and leave us in some tricky spots.

We’ve also all scooped some pretty great pots with our pocket pairs, but more often than not they’ll lose us money.

So what’s the trick? How should we be playing them? (more…)

Angry fantasy football player

Man “Disgusted” with ‘Casual’ FPL Players

An office worker — Ashley, 26 — has said that he is “disgusted” with what he described as “casual” players of the annual Fantasy Premier League game.

“I don’t understand how someone could pay £5 to enter our company’s mini-league and then come up with some of the players that these idiots have,” he said.

“We were able to tinker with our teams since the middle of July so there is absolutely no excuse for it.”

Despite sitting in 14th place out of 17, Ashley remains confident:

“Of the players that have done well so far, I think I picked every single one of them in my pre-season drafts. I was definitely just unlucky to have not selected a single one of them in my actual squad.

“The current leader in our league, Sandra, got her bloody husband to pick her team — I’m sure of it.

“When I got into work this morning, the first thing I mentioned to her was how impressive Harry Kane’s xG was against Newcastle and Chelsea…she looked completely clueless.

“The fact that Kane, my captain, hasn’t actually scored any goals so far this season is completely irrelevant.”

Although he’s been below average in both gameweeks, Ashley is confident that his ‘differentials’ will come good.

“I know that with the hard work I’ve been putting in with heatmap analysis, I will already be near the top of the league by the time the double gameweeks roll around.

“Sure, the DGWs haven’t been kind to me in the last two seasons, but that’s only because of the players and managers deciding to troll us — that’s out of our hands.

“I’ve managed to pick up a few superb, under-the-radar selections that have all proven their point-scoring prowess in recent editions of Football Manager.

“I’ve checked out who Sandra and her husband are following on their joint Twitter account — there’s not a Dinnery or a Crellin in sight…just celebrities and the OfficialFPL account. It’s disgusting.”

Best Poker HUD 2018: Our Top Picks Revealed!

Online poker has taken the game to the next level.

The sheer number of hands you can play has let people experience all the different situations available.

This experience has translated into big profits for some players and allowed them to excel and crush the games.

Everyone is improving more quickly and coaching/training sites have added to the trend. 

As the industry has expanded, the tools available to assist you have become more varied.

These tools have let people take their game up a notch; allowing them to make better decisions and put in more volume.

This makes the game much more real, and brings back the person vs person element.

It also means you can profitably play multiple tables at once, as it’s not essential that you monitor the way every single player is playing.

Record Month

A Record Month! Here’s How I Did It…& How You Can Too

I very rarely talk to you about how much I make from my own matched betting.

Whilst we here at Guide to Matched Betting are typically happy to share everything we know with you, it’s nice to keep a couple of things private, y’know?

We’re here to inform. To teach. To inspire.

Today, I’ve got the opportunity to do something a little different…

…and I’m grabbing the bull by its big, fat, spiky horns.

I’m delighted to say that April 2017 was a record month for me.

Within this post, I’m going to reveal the exact profit figure I earned in that record month.

I’m also going to show you how I went about achieving it with a single set of accounts.

Hopefully you can replicate some of my success over the coming months.  (more…)
