Beat the bookies with matched betting

How does matched betting work?

Matched betting is a simple betting strategy that enables us to take advantage of bookmaker's offers and incentives. We simply place a bet at a bookmaker and then bet against the same outcome at a betting exchange. By covering all possible outcomes, we make guaranteed risk-free profits regardless of the result.



How much can you make from matched betting?

You may well have been told by numerous sources that if you take up matched betting, you'll be earning £2,000 a month, but the honest answer is that it depends on how much effort you are prepared to put in.  The more time you can commit to matched betting, the more profit you can make, but even if you can only spare 20 minutes a day, you can easily earn over £500 a month. That's over £50 an hour and it's so easy once you know how.

There is over £1,000 profit to be made from sign up offers, but that's not where the big money is. The earning potential continues with reload and free bet offers available to existing customers. Many people don't realise this and miss out. You will make far more money as an existing customer than you ever will as a newbie.

You can see how much I've made from matched betting by visiting my profit log. You can even click on each offer to see exactly how I've made every penny of my profit to date.

I get asked a lot about how much cash you need to actually start matched betting and I always give the same answer. You can pretty much start with any budget, be it £50 or £500. If your starting budget is small, just start with the smaller sign up offers and build up a steady bankroll.

Who is matched betting suitable for?

Matched betting is suitable for absolutely anyone looking to make easy cash. It doesn't matter what hours of the day you have spare as you can always place your bets well in advance of the event if necessary.


What experience do I need?

You don't need any previous betting experience whatsoever to be a successful matched bettor. My matched betting guide is easy to follow and will show you step by step, exactly how it should be done. In fact, the less bookmaker accounts you own, the more sign up offers you can take advantage of!

  • No experience needed


Perfect for:

  • Students
  • Beer money
  • Saving for a holiday
  • Extra pocket money


What are the risks?

There is no risk whatsoever to your hard earned cash, so long as you take the time to read my guides thoroughly and learn the ropes. Learning matched betting is not something that should be rushed. It's important that you fully understand how it works before you deposit and place your first matched bet. The best approach is to start with a couple of the smaller welcome offers to build your confidence and then move on to the bigger offers. Matched betting is absolutely legal, tax free and is by no means gambling. The vast majority of gamblers will lose money at a bookmaker over time, whereas matched bettors will always profit. Thousands of people are already matched betting in the UK and as word spreads fast, that number is rising.

Why stick with me?

You won't need to worry about finding any offers yourself as I post them all on my blog with a detailed explanation of how each offer should be done. All you have to worry about, is getting your bets on.

Don't just take my word for it

I have thousands of readers every month and here's what a few of them have to say...

I've been following Matched Betting Blog for nearly 2 years now. I began during my student days to save up for Tomorrowland festival in Belgium for both myself and my girlfriend (£800) and we have just returned from a 4 star all inclusive holiday (£900) without a penny of our own money spent. Definitely worth a follow. I'm about £3,000 up since I started!

I’ve been matched betting for a few years now and I’ll continue as long as the bookies keep offering bonuses! Even though I already knew how to matched bet before I started following this blog, I find it really useful as it pulls all the offers together in one place and tells me exactly what bets I need to put on, which saves a lot of time.

Starting with the smaller introductory offers, MBB's easy-to-understand guides helped me to quickly get to grips with matched betting.  In just a few weeks I've made over £1,000 from the dozens of sign-up offers featured on the blog. Knowing I'll walk away from every Arsenal game with a few extra quid in my pocket certainly takes the edge off those tricky trips to Stoke.
Jack, Nottingham


I first came across matched betting after a friend told me how to take advantage of a Bet365 in-play offer. After ending £120 up from two bets (thanks Man City!), I did some googling and found this blog. It's so simple to follow the instructions, and all the maths is shown for extra reassurance. I've had a bit of extra cash to spend at the pub every month ever since!
