Matched Betting Success Stories £5k Club

You’ve probably heard lots of people claiming they’ve made £1k, £2k, £3k, £5k or even £10k plus from matched betting…

Not to toot my own horn, but for those that don’t know, I’m a member of the £150k+ club! Wanna learn more? I’ve documented my journey since I started in June 2020, through my Betting Reports.

One way in which people like to share their success in the matched betting world, is to post on different forums, such as or OddsMonkey.

I know everyone either won’t be members of these forums, be interested in scrolling through or just never thought about looking at them. But let me tell you, whilst most of it is waffle from people who don’t really know what they’re doing, but there are some really interesting posts in there.

I decided to go through the Outplayed forum and compile some of my favourite posts, to give some inspiration from other people who are matched betting.

I’ve already put together my list of favourites from the £1k club and 3k club.

Disclaimer: I have given each person a nickname, rather than using their actual username – just for privacy reasons as this is for inspiration, not a display case of successful bettors.

Anyway, let’s get into some of the posts I found in the £5k club…

Hit £5k after a stellar March of £1k profit and a total of 213 days.

One set of accounts, with a lot of gubbings across the board.

60.86% from sports
39.14% from casino

Started sports 04/09/2022
Started casino 10/11/2022

I feel like I am a lot more casual with it these days but still pulling in good profit of at least £500+ per month. Long way from £10k and I suspect it may take a while.

Betting – £1930.29
Casino – £701.48
Free Games – £373.91
TOTAL – £3005.68

Big Wins:
  • It only took around 7 months to hit the £5k club
  • Used both matched betting and casino offers – really maximising profits!
  • Had a £1k betting profit month in march

Tips To Get To £10k Club:

  • Learn about arbing to maximise the gubbed accounts
  • Try to spend some more dedicated time to matched betting, the betting profits would skyrocket
  • Invest in BetBurger software

Hit 5K just before 7 months.

I do bet & gets, bet clubs, boosts, horse refunds and some low risk casino.
Profits have been consistently £900 for the last 3 months after a relatively lean summer off season.

I use all of my free bets on sequential lay acca’s, I read somewhere on here that’s (one) good strategy to look muggy. It’s quite good fun doing it this way. I’ve gotten quick and the Acca catcher is very good for either finding them or building them.

I don’t have the time in the day or weekends to do more advanced EP’s and 2ups but that’s not too bad as I’ve gotten quite slick with things I do now. Maybe some EP’s when I lose some accounts.

Good on you AP, the forum really is a goldmine of good stuff.

Big Wins:
  • Hit the £5k club in less than 7 months
  • Uses a variety of strategies/tactics
  • Starting to build consistent betting profits!

Tips To Get To £10k Club:

  • Find some more time to do matched betting – you’d be surprised what a few more hours can do
  • Continue to experiment with different strategies
  • Learn about arbing in preparation for any account gubbings/restrictions

Finally hit 5k this evening. December and especially January have been a real grind, lost quite a few of my big sports accounts over the course of November which unfortunately came with big stake restrictions as well which pretty much rules out EPs or arbs. Still holding on to Fred somehow which I’m particularly careful with now. Casino gave me a real pounding over most of January, the past week has been kind to me though.

Quite incredible really that when I first signed up to this at the end of May I was just looking to plug some holes in our finances with my wife being on maternity leave. Was hoping just a few hundred quid to take the pressure off. Never thought I’d hit four figures, let alone 5k.

Big Wins:
  • Hit the £5k club within 8 months
  • Able to support family whilst his wife is on maternity leave
  • Engaging with the community

Tips To Get To £10k Club:

  • Continue to dabble with casino offers
  • Learn more about arbing to try to maximise profits on the restricted accounts
  • Invest in BetBurger software to help maximise betting profits

So there you have it, some of my favourite success stories (besides my own). As I see more, I’ll add them to this post – just to keep things interesting!

If you are interested to see how long it took me to become a member of the £5k club, you can see my Betting Reports. But for the nosey amongst you… It was 8 months!
