Getting Started with Matched Betting
Table of Contents
Matched Betting is most likely a new concept to you, but we are able to provide you with all the information to learn.
This post is aimed towards getting you started, we will be advising of our top tips for starting out Matched Betting.
Open A Separate Bank Account
This might seem a little over the top, but opening a fresh bank account will ensure that you can tightly monitor your finances.
You’re also much less likely to spend the money that’s in your betting fund!
In addition to this, a separate bank account means that you won’t face any questions when you try to get a mortgage.
Use a Tablet or Mobile Device
If you plan on using your computer or laptop for Matched Betting, that’s good.
However, in the modern day you will need access to a Mobile Device or Tablet.
This is because bookmakers are advancing into the modern times, with their apps and push notifications.
In 2020 bookmakers are sending out regular Price Boosts & offers straight to your app.
If you don’t have the Apps downloaded, you won’t see the special promotions on your account.
There are also many offers which are for Mobile Only.
Consider a VPN
A VPN has many uses when Matched Betting.
If you’re Matched betting alongside a family member, many bookmakers will refuse to allow both of you to take the promotions.
They have a little clause in their terms stating that they may only permit one promotion per IP Address.
A VPN will allow your IP address on your device to change, which would permit you access into that promotion.
A VPN would also come in very useful if you are multi-accounting
We plan to do a post on the best VPN’s for Matched Betting, but it’s not ready just yet!
Start The Oddsmonkey Trial
If you’re considering doing Matched Betting manually, be advised that it can be a real hassle.
It will take you a lot of time & you may not find all the offers which Oddsmonkey staff post on a daily basis.
If you don’t want to pay the £14.99 monthly fee though, that’s completely fine.
I would advise that you give the Free Trial a shot, just to see how the Software saves you so much time.
Alternatively, if you opt for manual Matched Betting, we have a free to access Matched Betting Lay Calculator.
