Matched betting is hands down my favourite side hustle! Last year I told you why I was no longer writing my online income reports, and mentioned that I might bring them back for one of my side hustles. Today I have my November 2018 matched betting income report for you.

What is matched betting?

Matched betting is a legal and tax free way to utlise offers that bookmakers give to new and existing customers. These offers can be turned into a guaranteed profit thanks to matched betting. It has been around for years now, and even The Guardian have written about it.

The amount of money that people make from matched betting varies and is dependent on a few things. How much money you can put into your matched betting pot, how much time you have and how many accounts you are able to create all impact your matched betting earnings.

You can see all my previous matched betting income below. Please note that from January 2017 I have been focusing on growing my business with a provable income, with a lot less time to dedicate to matched betting:

Remember that month 3 also overlaps into October 2015 as I switched to reporting it per calendar month.

How much money did I make from Matched Betting in November 2018?

I made £459.31 from matched betting in the month of November 2018. This money was made from reload offers and a casino offer – no new customer offers.

What happened in my life in November

With matched betting you definitely get out what you put in, so I think it is really important to tell you what happened in my life this month so that you understand how much time I had for matched betting.

November seems to have passed in a blur! I was running a money making challenge in my Facebook mastermind group, and knowing that December would be taken up with vlogmas I knew I needed to crack on. I hit it really lucky with a casino offer and made £138 risk free.

We were also away for a few days for the SHOMOs, where I won Best Money Making Blog for the third year in a row, and came runner up to Best Designed Blog and Success of the Year. Needless to say I'm pretty chuffed!

Get a Matched Betting Free Trial

When you're starting out Matched Betting, it's both easier and quicker to make money, with some harder offers left until you have gained more experience (and sometimes a bigger matched betting pot to help you to complete the offers). 

I have been using Profit Accumulator to not only teach me matched betting, but also to keep me up to date with the best offers. They list all the offers known currently in the UK and spell them out with step by step instructions.

Profit Accumulator give you a free trial where you can earn around £45 (I think around £40-£60 is a fair estimate). This should cover your first month's membership and allow you to test the waters and understand what's involved with Matched Betting and decide if it is right for you. If it isn't, that's totally fine too!

How to continue with matched betting after your free trial

Now you've got your account set up, you have access to all the offers, and you've completed the two free beginner offers. Where do you go from here?

If you like matched betting and want to continue then I would recommend signing up as a Platinum member. Then you will be working your way through the Beginner Offers section, where the offers range from £10 to £200. You'll need more money in the bank to complete the bigger offers, but hopefully by the time you reach them you will have the money needed to complete them.

Take your time going through our Beginner Offers section. There are lots of useful hints, tips and videos included along the way that will help you down the line. On completion of the Beginner Offers, you should have pocketed yourself up to £500.

During the Beginner Offers, you may find yourself waiting around for cash withdrawals from the bookies, this problem will go away over time as you build up cash in your bank account.

  1. Hi Emma
    Can i ask how much you keep in your mb float ongoing? do you keep it spread between bookies and exchanges or put it all back in your bank account as you go? do you ever take out profit? and if you do, do you just wait and keep chunks?
    Im at about £500 profit notw and people on PA reckon getting to 1-2k before taking any out, which seems sensible but serious delayed gratification! also losing motivation as most sign up offers I’m left with are £5 free bets which seem like a lot of effort sometimes for only about £3 profit… 🙁

    1. Hi Liz,

      My float is now around £3k and it is just kept wherever the money lands.

      I take profit out weekly.

      Yea £1-2k is best in an ideal world, but you do whatever you need to do. Well done on your profits so far!

  2. Do you mind if I ask how your bets are spread out … accras? Each way horse racing bets? I’m not sure exactly what they’re called (!) but it seems the straightforward place a !£10 bet and receive a free bet do become limited over time?

    1. Its a real mixture tbh, I do a lot of horse racing refunds as I really enjoy them. I just look through PA for the easiest reload offers.

  3. Very informative post Emma.

    Going to be exploring the world of matched betting in 2019 once I have made one of my other side hustles a little bit more passive.

    All the best and Merry Christmas!
