My first balls up
What a nightmare I’ve just had placed my £50 on bet365 and backed it with William hill (so I can also get there offer at same time) got into the inplay bet and fancied a score checked how much it would of been worth, thought I deleted it idiot me pressed bet now, so I’ve now lost that first inplay bet,
Decided I need to minimise my loss, bet 47 on a draw 4 mins later arsenal make it 2-0 ??? lost odds of 10’s what a nightmare rushing at work
Only saving grace is that I got a £20 free bet because I bet the 40 with William hill, so my loss should roughly be £4 instead of profit!!!!
Or prey for a big 2nd half from city+0December 21, 2015 at 9:16 pm
New to matched betting?
My Matched Betting Academy is the best place to get started. Learning the fundamentals takes 10-15 minutes and you’ll make £15 in the process.

Isn’t William Hill only a £10 free bet? where did you get the £20 free bet from? just cause you bet £40 and not £20 doesn’t mean they double the free bet unless im missing something here…+0benjimaxwell 0 December 21, 2015 at 9:23 pm
I bet £40.32 in my William hill and I’ve been given a £20:16 free bet which I don’t understand?+0RyanB 11 December 21, 2015 at 9:25 pm
That seems very odd..but also you should read Matts Guide..never ever bet random amounts like £40.32? I wouldn’t be surprised if you got restricted as a £40.32 bet calls out ‘IM MATCHED BETTING’+0RyanB 11 December 21, 2015 at 9:34 pm
Matts blog also says “I’d like to add at this point that it’s always best to stick to round numbers when placing your bets, as odd amounts such as £52.08 can easily be flagged up as a matched bet. You should instead place £50.00 on Arsenal with Bet365 and then place the extra £2.08 on Arsenal with another bookmaker, especially if you can get better odds elsewhere.”
This is also the same for the William Hill bet NEVER bet random amounts like you did you were better off just betting £40…the for sake of 32p your profit wouldn’t have changed much. You might want to remember this for future!+0benjimaxwell 0 December 21, 2015 at 9:41 pm
End off the day it’s all a learning for me all advice and learning from my mistakes…
Like everyone else on here+0RyanB 11 December 21, 2015 at 9:42 pm
Agreed mate, just letting you know never bet with pence! But its 2-1 now could end up being a draw which might help your situation!+0Tony S 6 December 21, 2015 at 9:57 pm
Genuinely most mistakes can be avoided by just reading and understanding Matts guides… Of course it doesn’t matter much to any of us the mistakes of others but the whole point of this forum is to help each other out… Seen a few silly errors in bets the past couple of weeks, always read the print, the terms and double check your bets lads
Hope it works out+0Dbb 3 December 21, 2015 at 10:59 pm
mistakes happen, make small ones and compromises all the time, most can be fixed but sometimes you take a loss. keep at this and you can only end up in profit as opposed to mug betting where you can try digging yourself out of a hole and get in some real shit.
now ive been doing this a couple of months, I tend to do the bet365 offers as bet/lay and bet/lay now, gives time for a nice odds search at half time and can slightly underly for a bit of extra profit if it goes your way, makes watching the match a bit more interesting too.+0Ice Magic 3 December 21, 2015 at 11:49 pm
Well in my haste to place the bet I only put £5 on instead of £50!
Instantly put another £45 on but was only refunded £5!
A quick call to customer services and it was all sorted though+0shaneMBBlocked0 December 22, 2015 at 8:49 am
Always bet round numbers. The only time I’ve bet pence is when I’ve been betting the entire balance on one bet, ie had £97.65 in the account and put the full £97.65 on one bet – figured it’s the sort of thing a normal punter would do – all or nothing. But if I had £100 in the account, betting £97.65 and leaving £2.35 would just look really suspicious.+0
