The Intro …

So for the second month with no job, I’m pretty sure at this stage I decided to go all in with matched betting.

Lets get into it!

Personal Stats: Dec 2020

  • No job
  • Matched betting full time
  • Bankroll: £3,045.02
  • Pets: 1
  • Software: Outplayed (review here)

Personal stats are the same as last month. The new pet is a nice addition to the stats!

December 2020: Week 1

The start of a new strategy

The strategies I had been using up till now was bet and gets. This is where you place a qualifying bet to get a free bet, hence bet and get.

After doing a bit of YouTubing I can across this channel, which taught me about a new strategy. Each Way Arbing.

You can find a full breakdown of the strategy here, but in short, there is a way to arb a bookmaker on the place market. I don’t recommend this strategy now, but it was worth a shot back then.

December 2020: Week 2

Now the betting total gets a bit interesting here as you can see the Each Way Arbing was doing pretty well. It’s a shame in about a months time a lot of accounts would get gubbed and restricted, but in that short period it boosted the betting total.

December 2020: Week 3

Pretty much doing the bet and gets, plus the each way arbing.

December 2020: Week 4 & 5

It’s quite crazy how one strategy can increase the betting total. Each way arbing gave a big boost to the total as you can see here.


For the last month of 2020 let’s see what the betting total was.

For the month of December 2020 a betting total of £1,322.57 was made.

The Betting Total from the starting point of 17th June 2023 is £4,367.59

Well the last 2 months on my own really got flying.

I was pretty chuffed that the second month beat my minimum wage job. Yes it only beat minimum wage, but for me this was awesome!

Let’s see what 2023 will bring! Thanks for reading and see you on the other side.
