I had never heard of matched betting until a friend told me about it. I immediately assumed it was a scam or pyramid scheme. I have a very suspicious mind when it comes to money making schemes, especially ones that purport to be risk free, which amazingly this pretty much is.

Could I really sit at home and make easy money from the bookies, who are notoriously tight fisted.

The answer, to my surprise, was yes. Over the past year I have partaken in this practice and made myself around £8500! Writing that sounds crazy but it is true.

The money I have made has been absolutely risk free, I haven’t gambled a single penny. Lots of bets have been placed but I wasn’t gambling.

It’s not 100% risk free as mistakes can be costly but that’s like anything in life. The way to reduce of remove risk completely is to get a membership at Oddsmonkey. There are a lot of matched betting sites out there but none of them compare to this one. Especially for value for money. They teach you everything you need to know and lay everything out for you each day so you can keep making money week after week after week.

You might be wondering if I work for them but I don’t. I just highly recommend their services.

If you are not sure what matched betting is, it is the way of betting with no risk. You back all outcomes so you can’t win but you can’t lose. You then get awarded bonuses like free bets which is where you make your money.

There is commission to take into account but oddsmonkey will work out everything for you with their amazing software and calculators. You don’t need to worry about the maths, which is good for me as I am rubbish at maths.

What we are doing is playing the bookies at their own game and leveraging the odds in our favour for a change. I can’t see this gravy train lasting forever so I would encourage people to jump in now before they come up with a way to banish these bonuses for good.

It’s perfect for people who work from home or want an extra income to help out in these hard times. How does an extra £500 sound?! Awesome, and it is. It’s made my life a lot more comfortable. You have to put the hours in but £30 per hour is a rough earning potential in my opinion. Not bad at all.

Update: There is another matched betting site called Profit Accumulator which is also offering a matched betting service. However it is not as good. You can read the review on the link here.
