I'm new on here so just thought I would say hello and see if anybody can answer a question for me.
I'm currently starting up on a matched betting career, so to speak. I've done a few bookies and know roughly where I am going over the next month or 2. My question is the Premium membership worth it. I have seen a thread previously but it did not really answer what I was after. What I'm asking is there much information on free bets on there that you can't find elsewhere for free. E.g on Oddschecker or on the TGT bookmakers pages? An example could be an advert in the racing post that gives you a code for a better sign up offer. Also do you see the code on the premium forum.

No there is very unlikely to be. Sometimes there will be but not often. We sometimes secure exclusive TGT deals for Premium Members but we cannot predict how often or to what value so dont rely on this.

I suppose there are some of those posted and also on the chatbox but it is a bit hit and miss.

No its quite a good question. Overall the specific bonuses themselves are all public knowledge, if you can search on google you will find them all yourself. What is more unique is the information/strategy/advice of what exactly to do with it to either make the most money or have the most fun.
It is quite good fun I would hope being a Premium member if you join in and get involved. In terms of seeing anything not actually available elsewhere, sometimes there is, but there are no promises.
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.
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.

Yes Moneybookers is the only available option, there is no reason not to and you can actually get £5 just for doing so, just go here:
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.
Just wondering, what made you come up with such a specific figure as £28? Instead of a round number like 25 or 30.
As for the subscription the jury is still out for me, still got plenty of offers to work through from mse and without wanting to sound too mercenary it would be nice to get an idea what added value there is in being a premium member
We are actively trying to add to and improve some of those services and the difference should be noticable in the coming weeks as deals come to fruition. There is no garuntee they will though the ball is never fully in our court.
RE The £28 it was a combination of reasons, I dont like having 99p at the end of something it is silly £27.99 may look cheaper but at the end of the day it is £28 so just say so. Also that is the price, it is not "Normally £56 but for a limited time only 50% off and just blah blah blah", "sign today before it goes back up" or any of that Jazz. That hard sell almost aggressive marketing winds me up. You get that sort of thing if you look at other Gambling websites or look into Gambling systems on Ebay and you will see what I mean. I look at it and think "You know what if your product was actually any good why are you having to try so hard to convince me?". We have absolutely NO refund promise, NO moneyback garuntee, NO free trial or anything of the sort.
It was not introduced to make TGT more money (although it has) it was just put there to control and protect certain parts of the forum. Which is why we dont/havn't advertised it anywhere or promote it at present. Pay it or dont pay it makes incredibly little difference to us.
