The Intro …

So we’ve got a brand New Year ahead. I’m still not to sure what my plan is going to be this year. But all I know is that I like Matched Betting and I’m going to keep myself busy reading everything I can and trying to learn more about it!

Lets get into it!

Personal Stats: Jan 2021

  • No job
  • Matched betting full time
  • Bankroll: £4,367.59
  • Pets: 2
  • Software: Outplayed (review here)

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

January 2021: Strategy 1 – Bet and Gets

So after looking through the month I can see Unibet turned up, and was offering bet £10 get a £5 inplay bet. This was on 5 games a weekend if I remember that right. This helped boost the betting profit for the month.

There was also Bet600 weekly bet 5 x £10 get a £10 free bet. Betway had a bet £25 get a £5 free weekly bet.

It looks like Coral stopped doing there bet and get inplay offer which was a shame 🙁

January 2021: Strategy 2 – Each way arbing

The new strategy I found last month was awesome this month. I found Bet365, Marathon bet, ladbrokes useful to do the each way arbing.

To be fair, Bet365 was the best one.

Now, while this did help me get some profit in the early months I wouldn’t recommend this strategy now, as in February it did result in accounts getting gubbed. However for this month, it was a great strategy to use

January 2021: Strategy 3 – Sign up offers

If you are lucky enough to get hold of some new sign up offers somehow, then these can help add up to the monthly betting profit.

I had a number of new sign up offers to do which was fun again!


Ok so we are at the end of the month, let’s see how we did.

For the month of January 2021 a betting total of £1,690.18 was made.

The Betting Total from the starting point of 17th June 2023 is £6,057.77

A new monthly record acheived!

This was more than my minimum wage job, so to acheive this 3 months after quitting my job was awesome!

So it’s been 8 months since I started matched betting, and a betting total of 6k as been made. This is amazing and mind blowing to me! It’s a bit of a shame that it’s replacing my wages, as it would be nice to have that on top of a wage, but having the freedom to do what I want to do on a daily basis is awesome.

Bring on February, let’s see what happens.
