I’ve been following this matched betting for a few weeks so seeing as it’s payday I’m going to start, I’ve got a good grasp, but has anybody got some good advice for me?

Start small and work your way up to make a nice float. Be careful as mistakes afre easy to do if you don’t concentrate. Check & Double check until you are confidant in what you are doing and lastly welcome aboard benjimaxwell+0Tony 8 December 14, 2015 at 12:07 pm
Read all of the guides here on Matt’s site to start with, then fire away with any questions you have 🙂
Keep (good!) records – it’s just good practice, but it also allows you to look back and see which bookie accounts you might be neglecting and which you are hammering (if you believe in the whole mug punting philosophy)
If you can, start with a decent bankroll, otherwise you will be waiting for money to move from bookie > bank all the time. Using PayPal is helpful here, and most bookies now offer paypal.
Most importantly, make sure that you READ THE T&Cs of any offer you are going to do. Things like minimum odds for qualifying bets, any WR on winnings and excluded deposit methods (often Neteller and Skrill).
Good luck (not that you need it Match Betting!) 😀+0benjimaxwell 0 December 14, 2015 at 1:57 pm
Just going to spend a couple of weeks following the blog, awaiting a new blog so I can get started yeah agreed I’ll start off small as I get used and once I’ve worked to a decent amount I can then start putting on larger amounts,
Thanks Tony on the advice of keeping record I’ll set up a spreadsheet once I get home+0beh 7 December 14, 2015 at 2:29 pm
It’s all in the detail.
Be sure you’ve read and understood the T&Cs to avoid having a nightmare, see this thread for a good example – https://matchedbettingblog.com/topic/winner-co-uk-help/ . Don’t be drawn in by big offers, start small/easy and gain some experience.
Double check everything, small mistakes can make big losses. In play betting is worse for this as there’s increased pressure to be fast. I’ve done things like lay a bet in the FT market when I backed it in HT, could easily have lost £200+ if I’d not spotted it.+0
