In my experience.
Matched betting has proved to be my top online earner over the years.
Helping me make £1,000s by cashing out the bookmakers’ free bets.
For example, I’ve recently made more than £2,100 from the bookmakers ‘ongoing’ offers:
And I’ve discovered that exploiting the bookmakers’ free bet clubs is a great way to earn at least £40 each week in tax-free profits.
Here’s how I do it.
Free Bet Clubs – Basic Strategy
What are free bet clubs?
Well, many online bookmakers will give you a free bet(s) when you wager a certain amount of your own cash each week.
By using the fundamental principles of matched betting, this can be done ‘risk-free’ by using the betting exchanges to ‘lay off’ your bookmaker bets.
You can then go ahead and ‘lock in’ a profit from the free bet using a matched betting calculator.
Here’s how to exploit the bookmakers’ free bet clubs.
(The easy way).
1: Bundle Your Bets
This is the real secret to making easy money from free bet clubs.
You see, many of the offers aren’t very good value on their own.
But if you’re ALREADY placing bets with a bookmaker to exploit their ongoing offers.
Then in many cases, you can qualify for their loyalty schemes either in the
This will save you a lot of time and effort.
2: Use Odds Matching Software
Getting the best ‘back and lay’ odds matches is critical.
Because too much ‘slippage’ on your qualifying bets will result in larger qualifying losses.
And if your retention rate is dropping below 65% on your free bets.
You’re leaving a lot of money on the table.
That’s why I use the PM Matched Betting Software.
Because it minimises my qualifying losses.
And also helps me to retain 70-80% or more of the free bets’ face-value as cash.
3: Be Consistent
You’ll need to remember that eventually.
The bookmakers are going to bonus-ban (‘gub’) your accounts.
Which is why I strongly advise that you extract as much value from each account ASAP.
And that means rinsing their free bet clubs too.
So, I would fully commit to exploiting all of the bookmakers’ loyalty schemes listed below.
And I’d do it each and every week – until the gubbing hammer falls!
7 Free Bet Clubs – Worth £40
If you exploit each of the seven free bet clubs below.
You’ll get £60 worth of free bets.
But once you’ve factored in the qualifying losses and averaged out the free bet retention rate.
You’ll probably end up with around £40 in net profit.
The bookmakers change their offers frequently. Please make sure that you check the Terms and Conditions for yourself before taking action. You can subscribe to a matched betting service to help make this process easier for you.
