Making Money

Back in the day, when men were men, it would have been unthinkable for the words ‘women and betting’ to be uttered in the same sentence. But thankfully things have moved on, and now it’s never been easier or more acceptable for women to be able to supplement their pension with a little wager or two. But you don’t have to venture onto the dark side that is ‘the bookie’, this is something entirely different called Matched Betting.

It’s legal, it works, you won’t lose a penny.

I won’t lie, I was sceptical at first, but now, I love Matched Betting and you will too once you get the confidence to give it a go. It’s a fun way to make you guaranteed extra money.


Just like a supermarket offers you reward points or a fashion website offers you a 10% discount on your first order, bookmakers need to offer an incentive to get new customers to encourage new customers. They don’t have a product per se to sell, so they offer you a free bet instead.  Matched Betting takes advantage of these special sign up free bets, and once you have made the qualifying bet, (which you still will not lose money on), then your major profit will be made on the free bets that you can make.


You place a bookmaker bet on Team A to win (a “win” bet). You then bet via a betting exchange (such as Betfair) that Team A won’t win (that is, loses or draws). This is called a “lay” bet.
Team A’s eventual result is mainly irrelevant as you’ll always have one bet that wins, and one bet that loses. If you follow the correct guidelines you will make the same overall profit regardless of the betting result.


My own ‘bet’ is, that as a mature Wife, Mum, Grandma, if you told your nearest and dearest that you were thinking of starting Matched Betting, they would imagine you on a slippery slope, heading straight for Gamblers Anonymous. But Matched Betting is a tried and tested, risk-free way of making extra money from the comfort of your own home. No, you don’t have to go anywhere near a conventional betting shop, and the neighbours won’t be whispering about you behind your back.  Here is how to take that leap of faith


  • Firstly sign up for a free trial with a website called Profit Accumulator. You do not have to give any bank details to Profit Accumulator, just watch the free tutorials. Then go for the 2 free offers to get you started. Everything is explained so clearly. Even if you don’t quite ‘get’ it the first time, all of a sudden, the penny will drop and it will become crystal clear.
  • Just to do the free offers you will need to have about £60.00 spare to get you started BUT this is risk-free, you will get your £60.00 back and should make a tidy profit of around £45.00. Not bad for an hour or so’s work. If you want to, you can withdraw your profit, and your original £60.00 and forget the whole thing, or…..
  • Sign up for the paid subscription to Profit Accumulator.  Very often they do special offers where you can join free for a whole month, then after that convert to the paid option, which is about £17.99 a month but worth every penny and it will pay for itself in the long run.  


There seems such a lot to learn when you first sign up for Profit Accumulator but be patient, there is so much help and guidance for anyone who is new to Matched Betting.  But unlike learning to crochet, or mastering line dancing Matched Betting will have a positive effect on your bank balance, the potential is huge and you’ll really enjoy it too.
