There isnt really a lot to "risk" its just the odds can move a bit quickly before the off, and horses can be withdrawn but its very rare and even rarer to be a problem. Overall though you are quite right you can bet perfectly happily on Soccer match odds if you want something low and Correct scores if you want something high and never actually "need" anything else.

Have a plan and stick to it
It turns out i didn't read the t&c's properly at Totesport! first qualifying bet has to be placed on the same day the account was opened. I left it a day or two, placed what i thought was my qualifier today and no free bet was credited. I got on to CS who told me about the qualifier having to be placed on the same day the account was opened but as a good will gesture they would match my first bet and give me a free bet of £25 but that would be it. I've accepted because it's better than nothing. Another stupid mistake. We live and learn!!!
Managed to make £22.72 from the Totesport offer, taking the qualifier in to account. Placed the qualifier on the horses near the off and did the same with the freebie. Still really annoyed i can't take advantage of this offer fully after messing up by not placing my first bet on the same day i opened my account.
Signed up to Centrebet and placed a £50 Qualifier on a 3.2/3.2 match (under 1.5 goals Denmark/USA) I was then given 5 x £10 free SNR bets. Placed them all on the horses near the off over two consecutive afternoons. A nice easy offer to do and all the bets were either exact matches or small arbs. Made at least £8 from each freebie which was a good enough return. Signed up via TGT link too for £5 cashback. All in all, taking the qualifier and freebie in to account i came out with £42.12 profit.
I signed up to Chillibet over the weekend to take advantage of their bet bet €20 for a free €20 bet. Took a 7.4/8.2 match for my qualifier and 6.4/7.4 match for my free bet. Treated them both as SNR but the freebet won so i have just send off ID as they have requested and i will have to see how much i lose once charges come in to play. Should probably make somewhere between £5-£10 from this offer once charges are taken in to account. Not great but better than nothing for about 20 minutes work.
Just signed up to Bet24 to take advanyage of their 50% matched deposit bonus up to £30. I deposited £60 and £30 was added straight away. Just need to find a decent match now. Signed up via TGT link for £5 cashback.
I have now signed up to 4 bookies and Moneybookers so i should be eligible for £25 cashback next month (fingers crossed)
Profit so far: £525.86
Then what happened mogz?
Have you given up?
I've been so busy at work with the run up to Christmas that matched betting has had to take a bit of a back burner for the last week or two. That's not to say i have completely stopped because i am still on with one or two offers as we speak i just haven't had the time to sit in front of a computer recently. I will do an update tomorrow afternoon/evening if i get chance because even though i have had to take my foot off the gas a little i have still signed up to a few bookies since my last update.

I'm not in any sort of rush to fly through all the bookies so i'm quite happy to take the odd break from this to recharge the batteries and get a fresh feel for it if need be.
OK, so I've been quite busy since the last update but i have still gone ahead and done a few more offers. Here are the ones that i have done with a breakdown of all the profits at each.
Went for Wigan to beat Tottenham a couple of weeks ago for a loss of £4.55 and placed the free bet on a full time correct score in an Argentinian match making £12.59 from that. I used £18.50 (€20 approx) as my stake figure for both bets in the spreadsheet just to make things easier. £8.04 profit overall from the offer. Perhaps not too great but better than nothing and all done in 5 minutes. Both bets lost at Chillibet.
Signed up via TGT link for £5 cashback and deposited £60 to get a £30 bonus and placed the full £90 on Unirea Urziceni/Sevilla in the Champions League. I went for a draw, it wasn't and so bust out at the first time of asking keeping the full bonus in tact and making 98p on top from the small arb i had found. £30.98 profit from this offer.
Signed up and deposited £50. The offer was bet £50 for a free £50 bet. I placed the qualifier on an Argentinian football match (outright result) for a £1.34 loss. Not bad i thought because the odds seemed pretty dire here. Went for Wolfsburg to beat Man Utd 2-1 the other week in the CL. They didn't, both bets lost and i came away with £33.48 profit from the freebie. £32.14 profit overall from this offer.
Same offer as the Eurosportbet offer. Odds much better though and £5 cashback to come from TGT for using their link. 42p profit from an arb i found on a HT/FT footy match in the Europa League for the qualifier and £44.57 for the free bet which went on a horse that ran the next day. £44.99 profit overall from this offer.
Went the TGT link again for £5 cashback. Deposited £20 and i automatically had a £20 free SNR bet added on top of that should my bet win. So effectively i had £20 on as a qualifier and £20 on the same selection as a £20 SNR bet. I found the odds pretty poor here but did manage to come away with £13.67 profit once the qualifier and freebie had been taken in to account. Bet lost by the way.
I signed up to Paddy Power over the phone to take advantage of Sky current offer - bet £50 for a free £100 bet. Both bets were placed on horse races at Kempton 10 days ago. Both bets lost and both bets were within half an hour of each other so in and out for £83.67 profit overall after both bets have been taken in to account. Signed up on the phone, placed my qualifier as soon as i had opened the account and then placed my freebie online. Good odds and a very easy offer to do. All done within 45 minutes.
I signed up to take advantage of the 100% Sign Up Bonus up to €100 offer they currently have available. I didn't read the t&c's to the letter because i thought i would be eligible for a free £100 bet once i had wagered the correct amount but in fact it is a 100% Sign Up Bonus up to €100 OR CURRENCY EQUIVILENT. So instead of getting the £100 i expected i actually received £89.31. No big issue but just goes to show not reading terms and conditions properly can be a problem. The WR was 5xdeposit so £500 in all needed to be staked. I placed 5 x £100 bets, emailed them to tell them i had completed the offer and the bonus was in within 48 hours. I made £86.92 from the free bet (which i have literally just placed) I made an 8p loss over my 5 qualifiers so ended up making £86.84 profit overall from this offer.
One word of warning when placing bets with Globetsport. When you place a bet (this happened every time i placed one of my five £100 qualifiers) the bet doesn't seem to get confirmed/accepted straight away. About 5 minutes after i had placed my bet i got a message saying my bet had finally been accepted so make sure not to leave any bets to close to the off and always double check to see if the bet has been accepted in your statement.
£25 was paid by TGT for the first 4 bookies (and Moneybookers) i signed up to last month so thanks a lot for that guys
I still have £10 in cashback to come from TGT so once i have signed up to another 3 bookies that should get me another £25.
Going to have a clean break now until after Xmas. Probably get back up and running next monday when i have a week off and my partner is back at work so piece and quiet and plenty of time to get cracking!! Not sure where to go next so any advice would be greatly appreciated so i can plan things out before next week.
PROFIT SO FAR: £851.27
Paddy Power £83.67
Thanks for the update mogz.
Quite a few I will be doing soon :-D
Well done mogz, any aims/targets for the new year?
I'ld reccomend coming up with a list of bookies/the order you wish to complete them. It well helps me push through offers further.
Best of luck,
No real aims or targets this year. Just to keep plugging away, get as much profit from each offer as possible and just keep ticking along as i am doing at the moment. I'm not going to rush all the offers, I'll just research the ones i think might be worth doing and do them as and when i get the time.

The offer was/is bet €20 and if it loses you get a €20 free bet/refund that needs to be bet through. For the initial bet i went for Arsenal/Draw in the HT/FT market (West Ham/Arsenal) If the bet had won i would have made a few pennies loss with no free bet (i could have treated it as an SNR bet to make sure if the bet did win i'd make a profit regardless) The bet lost though and the refund was in when i logged in the next day. Placed the freebie on AC Milan/Draw on the same market as the first bet (AC MILAN?Genoa, midweek) and again the bet lost. Both bets were close matches and only took 5 minutes to find. I thought the odds were pretty reasonable indeed. Came away with £12.47 profit from this offer overall. Not bad for very minimal effort.
Signed up via TGT link for £5 cashback. I emailed them to see if Moneybookers still made me eligible for the sign up bonus as i had read somewhere that they didn't used to allow this. Couldn't see anything in the t&c's about it so just wanted to double check. Got a reply saying this was fine, so deposited £90 via Moneybookers. No bonus added after 48 hours so i emailed them and it was added straight away. Not a major problem.
Managed to get the full £135 (£90 deposit/£45 bonus) on Under 2.5 goals in the Spanish Cup match between Valencia and Deportivo this week. It ended up 2-1 to Deportivo so ended up busting out at the first time of asking. It was an exact match but i underlayed slightly to take in toi account the WR had the bet won. Just over £40 profit from this one.
PROFIT SO FAR: £905.68
Paddy Power £83.67
noticed Uwin formerly winunited is not on ya list. Was going to tell you it is similar to the Tobet offer you've done but went to check and now its as below
1. REGISTER with Uwin
2. Make your first deposit and stake it 5 times on evens or above
3. Email us
4. Uwin will give you 50% of your deposit (up to a maximum of 30€) within 24hrs
They do seem to have quite a few no loss qualifiers about though so probably still worth doing and they have had decent offers in the recent past like the Cashback Friday one.
