Matched Betting Interview – What is Matched Betting?

Today we have a brilliant interview with an experienced matched bettor. Anyone who’s interested in matched betting or making money online will definitely enjoy this post.


Ed lives in the Midlands and has been matched betting for nearly 4 years. He has made £1000s with this brilliant betting technique. Ed has recently become a member at The Sure Bettor and he was very keen to participate when we proposed an interview style post with him. We tried to pick questions based on what we wanted to know when we started matched betting. So hopefully they’re of some use to you. Please add your own questions in the comments section below and we’ll get the post updated with more answers from Ed.

Matched Betting Interview With Ed

When did you first come across matched betting?

Ed: Like many people I was surfing the internet trying to find a way to make money online. I was very close to giving up until I came across a link called ‘no risk matched betting.’ At first I was skeptical about this so called ‘risk free’ betting technique but later, after some research I decided to give it a go. I didn’t really have anything to lose so it was worth a shot. And the rest is history.

This seems quite a common way that people find out about matched betting. I certainly started out the same way. Many people are put off by the ‘betting’ involved with this technique but it’s important to look past that. That’s why we offer a free trial here at The Sure Bettor for anyone who’s interested but wants to see actual results before committing.

How much money did you start with?

Ed: After completing my first Ladbrokes offer I saw a huge potential so I immediately put £300 into opening other bookie accounts. I think it’s important to point out you get back 100% of the money you put in. This technique is risk free so you’re not actually risking any of your own money. The more you invest the more offers you can complete and the more you’ll make from each offer etc.

Ed makes a great point here about the risk free nature of matched betting and how you’ll recoup 100% of your initial investment once you’ve completed your first offer. Simply put, the more money you invest the more you’ll be able to make. However anywhere around £200 is a great figure to start with.

How much did you make from your first offer?

Ed: I made about £40 profit from a Ladbrokes sign up offer. I was very surprised how quickly and easily I made that first profit. For anyone who’s looking to learn matched betting it really is very simple once you’ve learned the basics and the guys at The Sure Bettor do a great job of explaining the steps in an easy to follow manner.

This is a very typical profit from a sign up offer however it depends on which bookie you use. Some offers are £5, some are £200. We advise anyone who becomes a member to start with the smaller offers and work your way up so you know exactly what you’re doing. Therefore you can maximise the profit you make from each offer no matter how big it is.

matched-betting-interview-with-edHow much time do you spend matched betting each day?

Ed: I usually spend between 30 minutes to an hour each day. However at weekends it can sometimes be a little longer since there’s more sport on and therefore more offers to complete. I would spend longer each day but I treat matched betting as a second income and I’m happy with my current earnings.

Again this is a typical amount of time spent each day. The more time you invest the more offers you can complete and the greater potential earnings you’ll have each day. It all comes back to how much effort you’re willing to put in.

On average how much do you aim to make each month?

Ed: I aim to make at least £750 each month but I’m usually much closer to £1000. I’m confident I could make more profit with more time. However as I said earlier I’m very pleased with the amount of extra income matched betting gives me already.

This is a great amount to aim for each month. Remember, all the profit we make is tax free so we can save it or spend it how we like. No risk matched betting is incredibly profitable once you know what you’re doing and we know you’ll be love the extra income it gives you.

Have you been gubbed by any bookies?

Ed: Yes, I won’t name which ones but I’ve been restricted by one bookie and fully gubbed by another. I didn’t start mug betting early enough and I was restricted in my first year of matched betting. If you’re serious about making money through matched betting it’s important you keep all your accounts unrestricted. The best way to do this is through mug betting.

Unfortunately gubbing is a possibility for every player within the betting industry. The bookies want to protect their bottom line and that’s fair enough. However it’s important we keep our restrictions down to a minimum as this will affect our overall profitability. The best way to do this is through mug betting.

If you could give one piece of advice for someone starting to learn matched betting, what would it be?

Ed: The best piece of advice I could give someone just starting is to keep very organised. Write down what bets you’ve got on, account balances and passwords of each bookie etc. Over time you’ll create a long list of bookie accounts and you won’t be able to remember the information for each one. More importantly I saw an increase in profit when I began to stay more organised. So if anything just do it for the profit.

We agree with Ed on this piece of advice. At the end of the day we all started matched betting to make more money. Therefore we should do everything we can to maximise our profit no matter how mundane it may be.
