    Looks like Bet 365 are handing out free money again on the Man City vs Real Madrid game tonight :)

    Bet £50 before the match takes place. Then bet £50 in-play (During the game) and get that £50 back if it loses. Worth about £30 guaranteed profit by matched betting it.

    That's the beer tokens sorted out for the weekend lol

    Have you done any matched betting before or are you completely new to it niksboy?

    The bet365 has been and gone now, but there will be more coming up with ascot and the euros round the corner. I can help with that when the time comes as well if you like.

    Yes had bets on Man City game other night but still can not work out the foolproof way to profit from it. They may offer something this week on the C League second leg.

    This page explains it pretty well... You can go through their free bet challenge and work your way through the free bet sign up offers like that.

    You can do this sort of thing all the time Niksboy if you look at in play too long enough.

    Selby was evens (1-1) at the start of the world final, at the end of frame 5 you could get Ding for 12/5. A careful punter might start with £100 on Selby, then £50 on Ding at 12/5 you'd either clear £50 or £20. Of course, Ding could have started winning heavily from the off, which wouldn't work, but it's something you can turn to your advantage if you don't mind small profits. Personally I wouldn't have done that if I'd bet on Selby after seeing him go 5 up but some like to cover all angles.

    Care to repeat this in English lol. I currently just cover all outcomes to convert the free bets into money.

    This sounds interesting though! Is it guaranteed to win for you, or is there some risk but not that much or something?

    Basically bet heavy at the start on who you think is going to win, if it goes to plan and he starts well, the odds on the other guy in play will shoot up. Then you punt on the other guy for less in case he comes back and wins it.

    Selby 1-1 £100 returns £200.

    Ding (after 5 frames) 12-5 £60 returns £204.

    You've laid out £160 and are guaranteed profits of £40.

    Of course if Ding had started well then you are in the do do but that's gambling, but it's a way of managing risk.

    If you really want to make betting work for you try Arb betting. Get best prices on Horses you can early on, eg Lamini was 4-5 in Cheltenham week. On the off he was 2-5

    If you laid £10000 on 4-5 then sell the bet on Betfair for £12000 at 2-5 it pans out like this.

    If it wins you get £18000 from the bookies, you pay £16800 to your punter on Betfair leaving you with £1200.

    If it loses you keep the £12000 from your punter and you have £2000 profit.

    Risky still though, if the price lengthens you are in trouble, but usually it wouldn't for a short price favourite.

    Bookies themselves employ this method, they employ people at the track to lay bets for them to cover potential losses.

    I think I get what you are saying. So you bet some pretty big numbers there but making some really good money!

    Do you think Euro 2016 will bring some good opportunities?

    Germans 10-3 seems a good offer. Maybe Italy each way at half odds (win or runners up) 16-1 seems a good bet. Match betting will be difficult especially the group matches.

    Loads of offers currently available! Bet365 have their £50 in play offer tomorrow. wincashlive have england at 20/1 (Winnings paid as free bets) to win for new account holders. Plenty of sharb offers around as well in ladbrokes and coral especially good ones.

    Matched Betting has turned to **** in the last few months because of too many people doing it, used to be extremely profitable but gone **** now.

    Lol. It's not as good as it used to be but it's still pretty profitable. Their are loads of offers being given out for the Euros. If you used to do it, get back on it at least for this month I'd say.

    Bet 365 have their £50 inplay offer for the England vs Wales game today if anyone has time to get on it. It's worth about £30 profit.

    Bwin have pretty much the same £50 inplay offer for the same match. Worth about £20 profit or so.

    They may be more, I haven't had time to look yet.

    Never throw your losing slips away, William Hill were giving £10 free bets to anyone who had bet on England during the Euro's as long as you still had the slip.

    There are hundreds of these bets around, you don't need to wait for specific events such as Goodwood etc... to take advantage of them. Just use one of the Matched Betting services such as Profit Accumulator and they find them for you.

    Just placed my bets for the weekend on the Alloa game, guaranteed profit of £32.
