Coffee open notebook desk matched betting mum has earned £3798 in 5 months from matched betting with Profit Accumulator

Monthly Matched Betting Diary…5 months on

Last month I started my regular series of posts about how much money I’m making from matched betting. The last month has flown by and I can’t quite believe it’s time for another update.

The reason for me posting these updates is to show just how much it’s possible to make matched betting. There are lots of people with more time and flexibility making more than me. But as a busy mum with little spare time, I’m happy with regularly achieving anything between £500 and £1000 a month.

October 2016
  • The total amount I made matched betting in October was £691.01.

Seeing as my monthly goal was £500 when I started out I should be very happy with this. It’s the second month of me working my way through reload offers alone. These are the ongoing offers from bookmakers to entice you to keep betting with them. There aren’t quite as many juicy and easy offers to take advantage of, so I was expecting it to be harder to make money. In reality, it wasn’t! Matched betting also took a bit of a back seat as it was half term this month and I’ve been getting more and more involved in this blog. It left an hour or so at most when I did get a chance to check out Profit Accumulator and get some offers completed.

But I am also slightly disappointed with myself. I made a couple of schoolgirl errors one day which cost me £100, wiping out the money I’d made in the past couple of days. I was a little bit gutted because I didn’t follow my own advice about the common mistakes you can make matched betting. But, mistakes can and will happen. You just need to learn from them and move on, otherwise you’ll go mad kicking yourself about them. And still, nearly £700 isn’t to be sniffed at!

what offers did you do?

So how did I make that money? Here’s a breakdown of the different types of offers I got involved in:

  • BET X, AND GET A FREE BET: £291.75. These are the bread and butter offers where you bet a certain amount and get a free bet. There were lots of in-play offers available this month, where you bet on the event as it’s taking place. In return you get a free bet, often to be used on another live event. Also make sure you check your emails regularly, including your junk folder. I was sent a couple of very good invitation only offers from bookies I rarely use which helped with this month’s total.
  • CASINO OFFERS: £139.34. This is the first month I’ve attempted some of the riskier casino offers. I’m still not prepared to risk more than £10 on these offers but, as you can see, they can be very profitable. If you’re a little bit unsure about attempting these my introductory guide will help you get started.
  • HORSE RACING REFUNDS: £133.29. These are offers where you only get a free bet if your horse wins, is a runner up, or falls. I dabble in these occasionally when I think there might be a reasonable chance of me ‘winning’ a free bet.
  • ACCUMULATOR REFUNDS: £24.73.  These are offers where you get a free bet if one leg of an accumulator – where you bet on a few different results – loses. I made some silly mistakes with accumulator bets this month so I’m disappointed with this total. However, it’s taught me to be diligent in setting reminders when I need to place different lay bets.
  • PRICE BOOSTS: £90.91. Price boosts are when bookmakers enhance their odds on certain events, pushing the odds higher than the lay odds available. This means you can make an instant profit simply by placing one bet. At first, I was reluctant to do these types of bets as the amounts you could make from them were often very small. However, they are so quick and easy. And obviously, those pounds really do add up!
  • LOCK-INS: £9.97. These are offers where you can guarantee a profit by placing bets on certain eventualities occurring. As you can tell, I don’t often get involved in these types of offers. You can work these out for yourself with different calculators provided by Profit Accumulator. However, this is too much faff for me. Helpfully, the good people on the Profit Accumulator forum often share their findings which is when I would place these types of bets.
  • BINGO OFFERS: £13.80. I love bingo so was more than a little bit disappointed by the automated online games when I tried these a while ago! However, I thought I should try a few more this month and am very happy to have made some money from them. Look out for a post from me about these when I get more experience.
  • MUG BETS: -£12.78. These are the bets you place periodically to look like a ‘normal’ customer in the eyes of the bookmaker. This will always be deducted from your monthly total because you will make a small loss on each bet you place. As you can tell from the low amount I don’t place mug bets that often and I probably need to do more.

This is my 5th month of matched betting and the total to date now stands at an impressive £3798.40! You can see my previous earnings reports here.

Diary showing matched betting mum's earnings of £3107 since starting matched betting 4 months ago with Profit Accumulator

Monthly Matched Betting Diaries

I’ve toyed with the idea of setting out just exactly how much I’m making matched betting with Profit Accumulator since I started this blog. I’m not one for shouting about how much money I do or don’t have and don’t like it when others do the same.

But I want to show people just what is possible when you do matched betting, and how much you can continue to make every month! This monthly diary series therefore sets out exactly what I’ve made over the previous months. It will also give you a rough idea of how much of my time was involved and how I fitted it in around my two young children. That way, you can see whether it’s something that might work for you too. Given this is the first in the series, it covers my first four months matched betting. I hope to be more specific about how I’ve used my time in future updates.

I’m not making mega bucks and it’s not a life changing amount of money. But considering I’d otherwise have no income these are significant sums of money to me and my family. It will go a long way towards clearing our debts in the next few months.

June 2016
  • £591.13

You may be thinking that this is quite a small amount of money for my first month given the number of sign up offers available. However, I made this in less than 2 weeks because I was out of the country the rest of the time! This money was made solely from the sign up offers listed in the beginner section of Profit Accumulator’s website. I did these offers only in the evenings after the kids were in bed.

july 2016
  • £735.07

By July I was starting to move on to some of the advanced offers. I remember getting a little bit frustrated with matched betting at this point because the requirement to place more qualifying bets or to meet rollover requirements meant it was taking longer to make money. Having spoken to some of the people who’ve followed my lead after reading my introduction to matched betting on the website, I don’t think I’m alone in feeling this.

My advice to them and you is to persevere. You will make money from these offers. It’s also worthwhile doing them all because they will help build your matched betting experience. And this is essential if you want to carry on making money from matched betting.

Again, I did a lot of these offers in the evening. But I also used the time my son was sleeping during the day to place lots of bets too. This solid hour in the middle of the day was – and still is – really useful to be able to place bets on horse races.

august 2016
  • £959.62

This was my best month so far. Considering my daughter also finished nursery this month – so I had the two children to entertain – and we also went away for a week to see the in-laws, this makes the monthly total even more impressive! I benefitted from being able to complete some of the higher value advanced offers as my bank had grown in value. I also moved on to starting the reload and some of the casino offers this month as well.

Looking back, I was matched betting for a maximum of 2-3 hours about 4 days per week. I made the bets when I had a chance to log on and look for bets rather than sitting down for long periods of time (which would have been impossible!). So I placed the bets in the evenings or in the odd 20 minutes or so I occasionally had during the day. Like when the youngest was sleeping or they were both happily playing with toys or watching TV. We were also very busy during the summer so I wasn’t able to take advantage of any higher value Saturday offers either. Otherwise I’d have been able to take part in lots of offers marking the start of the new football season.

september 2016
  • £821.57

My daughter started school this month which did free up my time considerably. However, starting this blog has been a significant distraction for me and I probably did no matched betting at all in a 10-day period towards the end of the month.

This was a time for me to start trying some of the advanced techniques, such as horse racing and accumulator refunds. I’ve been really impressed with how profitable these can be. And there is extra software – acca catcher and match catcher – which you can purchase to help manage them.

total earnings

I’m really pleased that my current earnings to date total £3107.39. Since I’ve started I’ve wanted to build up my bank to around £3000 to ensure I can place bets of any size whenever I want, so this is a major milestone for me.

how to continue making money matched betting

If you’ve signed up to Profit Accumulator then I’d highly recommend you following the following threads in order to maximise your income:

  • How to make £1000 a month; and
  • How to make £300 a month PART TIME

It’s actually quite frustrating that I can see just how easy it is to make at least £1000 every single month if only I had a little more flexibility. However, the children and family are my utmost priority so I’ll often miss out on bets because they need my attention or we’re out and about. Still, given that I never spend more than 2 hours a day matched betting, I’m impressed with what I’ve achieved so far.

Matched betting is perfect for anyone who can spare a little time. Why don’t you try out Profit Accumulator’s FREE TRIAL where you will be walked through how to do matched betting step by step and can make £35-£40 simply by trying it out?
