I'm another MSE migrant, though haven't been there long.
Started MB'ing 5 or 6 weeks ago, but I'd been reading about it for an age before and never had the capital to start. Then I got sick of reading about it and, with money to be made, I dived in with a £40 float. All the studying I'd done made me want to make the most out of everything, so when I couldn't find decent football odds on my first bet I went for horses, and have hardly touched any other sport since. I should hit the £800 mark by the end of the week, so I don't think I've done too badly.
As you'll see, I actually signed up here a few weeks back, but then I found out how much premium membership is and I went straight back to MSE. I'm now of the view that it's a very reasonable amount to pay, especially if it keeps things a bit more low key. I'll pay up happily once I've got a grand - I decided my money would be completely ring fenced until then.
I'm looking forward to being more active here over the coming weeks, it's certainly a refreshing change from MSE
Hi. Another M*E member here. Been MBing for about 18months. Only signed up to about 25 books so far and made about £3.5k. I really need a kick up the butt and sign up to more books. I read how people were making 4 figure sums from the world cup, whereas I probably made very little
I am interested in looking at casino offers which aren't allowed to be discussed on M*E which is my main reason for signing up here
My only question so far is when I go to upgrade, it says click on your preferred payment type, but the only option is moneybookers. Is this the only option available? Personally I've avoided a MB account as it possibly identifies you as a bonus abuser if you're shifting funds in and out quickly, so if there was an alternative payment method, that would be nice
Welcome Jenson & r2d2( great name btw)
R2d2, we all use MB and never been identified as a bonus abuser due to it, it's just necessary really when you are shifting money around.We've got some great casino offers and you are free to discuss some of the riskier offers not allowed on mse.. A bit of a gamble's fine, if you are brave enough to go over to the dark side!
...and Jenson, follow then list of bookies and you should be a full member by Friday
Wow you have done very well starting with such a low amount, now you have a decent bankroll (£800?) I am sure you will find it MUCH easier. Goodluck but from the sounds of it you dont need it.

I am not sure who told you Moneybookers as a payment method would ever cause a problem but I would question whether they know what they are talking about. As a side note if you are a "Bonus Abuser" then you should not be here anyway and we would rather you did not join to be honest. There is no reason at all not to stick to all the T&Cs there is more than enough money to be made from doing that there is really no need to cheat.
Getting a Moneybookers account is one of the very first things any online gambler should do.
Have a plan and stick to it
Andy - Just to clarify my definition of "bonus abuser" was one that say deposits £200 to do a reload offer, does their wagering, then withdraws the winnings back the same day. Until now I've lived with the 1-3 days it takes to get the money back to my bank a/c, but it is a nuisance. If you deposit / withdraw via MB within a 2 day period, then that was my interpretation of bonus abuser.
Bella - thanks for the compliment.
First up 'hi' and welcome onboard.

You are just taking part in the promotions that gaming sites offer and that does not make you an abuser.

With that out of the way the question of whether to use Moneybookers or not is pretty moot - Moneybookers simplifies things so much it's really quite essential if you intend to use more than one or two gaming sites so you can keep the cashflow running smoothly/quickly.

EDIT: ok a few posts since I started replying... basically though I think the main problem is the way you're thinking of yourself as abusing these promotions, once you stop that the issue about Moneybookers goes away I think. IF you want to feel 'better' about 'abusing' a bookmaker, why not just keep a bit of money in the account and either put on some mug punts for small stakes if you're that way inclined or just keep the money in there to bet on arbs as and when you find them? Either way you're less likely to look like an abuser and more likely to come across as someone who enjoys a bit of a punt (you really should enjoy what you're doing anyway otherwise it's probably not worth doing it!).
Cheers mate. I've made my first mistake of signing up to MB but not going via the link! Didn't spot that in Andy's post
May as well introduce myself i guess... Orginally from London, 23 & so far been match betting for 3 weeks & have done about 12 free bet bookies.
I originally had the odd punt occasionally, still do in smaller amounts but i find earning money with wagers more enjoyable than losing... I plan to upgrade soon however i haven't joined Money Bookers yet, i intend to do so in a week or two, i've heard nothing but good things (About it & this site)
Welcome Pokey! Nice to have you onboard..
yeah.. this is a nice place.. put your feet up and stay a while...
