Firstly, thank you for taking the time to visit my matched betting blog. A couple of years ago, I started playing online poker in the hope of making big money. Like many, I’ve searched high and low for a ‘get rich quick’ scheme but unfortunately I’m afraid to report that I don’t believe such a thing exists.
I started to commit a lot of my spare time to poker and although I was profiting overall, I certainly wasn’t going to be giving up the day job any time soon.
It was during a home poker game with some friends that the subject of matched betting arose. I’d placed the odd football bet here and there, but I wasn’t aware that such a concept existed. I started to read up on the techniques and explore things further and it wasn’t long before I’d made an easy £1,000 from new customer offers.
Once I had taken advantage of the welcome offers, I went back to playing poker, thinking that I’d made as much profit as I could from matched betting. That was until I received an email one day from a bookmaker advertising a special offer for existing customers. This was an email that I would have ordinarily deleted without further thought but for some reason I decided to read it.
I don’t recall what the offer was, but it got me wondering as to whether there was any money to be made in offers for existing customers. I’m now making a profit of around £500 per month and it’s not difficult. It’s not a ‘get rich quick’ scheme, but it’s certainly a way of earning yourself a bit of extra cash and it’s pretty satisfying let me tell you.
I wanted to share my experiences and help spread the joy of matched betting, which is why I set up this blog.
