Matched Betting Longevity
Most people think that once the introductory offers have dried up, and they have made a couple of thousand pounds, that their matched betting days are over. This couldn’t be further from the truth. Each month I feel that this is going to be the month that it all dries up, but in fact I usually exceed my monthly target by the 3rd week!
So, how is this possible?
It’s true that bookie offers aren’t as lucrative as they used to be, but with the 2-up offers, casino offers, and minimum bet guarantee (more on that in the future), there is still plenty to be made.
Sites like Profit Accumulator have great forums with offers that don’t get picked up by other sites, plus all the tip and tricks from people who make thousands of pounds a year with minimal effort.
Firstly a disclaimer: Most casino offers are not risk free.
With casino/slot offers, Profit Accumulator (PA) attaches an Estimated Value (EV) to each offer. The theory is, if you play games with ‘Plus EV’ (+EV) then overall you will be a winner.
Say, for example, you do a wager £10, and get 10 free spins (worth .20p each) on a recommended slot which has a 97% RTP (Return to player). Wagering £10 should return you £9.70 (97%), but you will gain 10 spins worth £2 which should return £1.94. So this game is +EV with a value of £1.64 (-10 + 9.7 + 1.94).
If we continue to play +EV games, then we should end up winning overall. Just be prepared to lose sometimes, and start off with the low wager offers to test the water.
Don’t forget, there are also weekly bet clubs and the great 2-up offers, plus the William Hill golden goal offer! Plenty to keep you busy!
