What Exactly Is Matched Betting?
Put quite simply, matched betting is where you are betting on both outcomes of a single event happening in conditions, which will result in you making a small loss.
Sounds a bit crazy doesn’t it, and you’re probably asking, why would you want to make a loss?
Well, here’s the trick, you’ll be making money through the free bets that the bookmakers give out, which come as either:
- Sign up offers eg William Hill have a bet £10, and get a free £30 bet offer
- Or reload offers eg Money back if your horse finishes second
All you need to do is to repeat the first step again to make sure you only make a small loss, and you get to keep the rest of the free bet!!! Magic!
