The Intro …

Cheltenham! So everybody seemed to be banging on about Cheltenham ever since January, saying how much they are looking forward to ‘Cheltmas’.

Seeing as this was going to be my first time expericneing Cheltenham I wasn’t to sure what to expect. I think you’ll find it was quite an experience!

Lets get into it!

Personal Stats: March 2021

  • No job
  • Matched betting full time
  • Bankroll: £9,402.92
  • Pets: 3
  • Software: Outplayed (review here)

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

March 2021: Strategy 1 – Bet and Gets

Looking through the stats I was still doing Unibet bet and gets, I think Betfair was in there as well.

Aside from that, and Bet600 and Betway I don’t think there was that many bet and gets (aside from Cheltneham)

March 2021: Strategy 2 – Each way arbing

Each way arbing was still going well, and adding to the profits.

March 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!

March 2021: Strategy 4 – Cheltneham

So Cheltneham! 4 days Tuesday 16th – Friday 19th.

I’ve got the results here.

Day 1 – £331.89
Day 2 – £292.08
Day 3 – £325.86
Day 4 – £422.87

So where did the betting profit come from?

From memory, it was extra places, price boosts, and bet and gets.

The extra places was a new strategy that I had never done before. I’ll to a guide here, but in short you back and lay a horse like normal on the exchange, lets say for 4 places, then if the bookie is offering 5th and 6th as an extra place, if your horse lands there you would make £70 to £100.

I was a bit nervous as I had never done it before, but after day 1 I had landed my first extra place, I felt confident for the other days, and soon smashed it!


Alrighty, conclusion time, let’s see where we are at.

For the month of March 2021 a betting total of £3,345.15 was made.

The Betting Total from the starting point of 17th June 2023 is £11,316.21

So for the first Cheltenham this was amazing for me. I couldn’t believe how much betting profit was made, it was nuts! I was super chuffed with it.

Now I do have to say that there was some ‘help’ from available accounts which meant I could get on a lot of horses for the extra places, which is why I managed to hit so many.

But yeah, cracking month, super chuffed, can’t wait for next month, but I’m aware it probably won’t be as good as this month!
