I have been matched betting for a few months now with very good success. I stumbled across ‘Arbitrage Betting’ yesterday and am considering starting.
What I wanted to know was:
1.For arb betting, it is required to set up accounts with many different and not well known bookmakers. I wanted to know if anyone has had any problems with these very obscure bookied (Winlive, Pinnacle, Myber etc) and if there are any to avoid at all costs.
2. Are there any good sites that list good arbs for free?
3. Is there actually good money to be made arbing, or is it more of a supplement to match betting income?
4. Has anyone been banned from any bookmakers for arbitrage betting, or is it risky to be betting on random games (E.g. Games in the Korean leagues with £400)
5. Finally, what would be a good starting amount of money?+00December 1, 2015 at 5:17 pm

If you start arbing you’ll most likely lose a lot of accounts. One of my biggest mistakes in betting through the years was arbing for a period. Lost a lot of good accounts. Went while for a while before that but in the long run I lost out.+0Stims 0 December 1, 2015 at 11:09 pm
I’m pretty confident arbing is dead. Most bookies will ban you extremely fast after a few arbs. Pinnacle and the like don’t have UK licenses so you can’t use them either.
Sharbing is alive and well though.+0dekoder 1 December 2, 2015 at 11:22 am
Don’t arb if you want to keep the accounts.
I’ve learnt the hard way. Just tried for a week or two and lost WH, betfred and unibet (heavily limited or gubbed from offers).
And if you think “this bookie doesn’t have any nice reload offers” they’ll probably start right after you get gubbed.
Made few hundred quid but could have made more with them in 2-3 months.+0Dave_Jones 5 June 12, 2016 at 10:23 am
@Stims. Pinnacle are planning on coming back to the UK end of this year beginning of next. See this link:-
@Alex1. Although not that well known in the UK, I don’t think I would describe Pinnacle as an obscure bookie they are probably the biggest bookie in the world.+0potato 0 June 21, 2016 at 4:43 pm
Question from a newbie – from what I read it sounds like Arbs get you gubbed quicker than matched betting from offers.
How do they catch the arbers so quick? It seems like catching the people bagging offers would be far simpler and they’re the more direct threat to profit.+0
