Matched betting is the art of using bookmakers’ bonuses and free bets to make risk-free (or very low-risk) profits.
How this works is that bookmakers have special offers for new and existing customers. To get an offer you usually have to place a qualifying bet.
So you place the bet with the bookmaker and lay the exact same bet at the exchange. You will more or less break even and qualify for a free bet.
Follow the same process over and over again and you can make a substantial amount of money.
Matched betting now extends beyond just sports betting but includes casino offers, bingo bonuses and much more besides.
It is something that has become very popular among punters and indeed, some people actually make a lucrative full-time living from it.
With such popularity, it is becoming increasingly sophisticated and more tools are being added to the matched bettor’s armory all the time and we are always keen to check these out and see whether they give us an added advantage over the bookies.
In such spirit, we are taking a look at a new matched betting suite – appropriately titled Matched Bets.
It has a very nice-looking website and includes a wide range of tools, which we are looking forward to exploring in more detail.
We will run a short review of this to examine what is available and whether it offers value to would-be matched bettors.
We will report back shortly with our impressions.
In the meantime, please note that Matched Bets are running a special offer at the moment: you can get a year’s membership for just £99, rather than the normal £149.
This is only available until 31st March, so time is running out to claim it.
