Looking for easy bookie sites to use for a newbie
Im very new to the match betting fold and Im looking for some tips on what bookie sites to go for when looking for free bets.
after reading though some of the posts ive managed to pick up lots of helpful and useful tips on the whole match betting scene which is great. Im just wondering from everyones previous experience are there some not so obvious bookies recommended that I have not yet stumbled onto?
Post a list of what you have done. UK books are easiest, but often offer bigger bonuses around big sporting events like the world cup, or cheltenham. Have you looked at globalsquares speadsheet?
Also, plenty of bookies/tips/tricks/skills under the tag "beginner".
thanks very much for that i'll scan through that spreadsheet. Ive done so far
Also, I see alot of guys have made £1k plus pro, is there a knack to getting upto that much?
You can make more than £1k per month, it depends how much time you want to spend doing it. I probabaly spend a couple of hours a day doing it, and have completed 91 offers so far this month. The more offers you complete the quicker you get.
great, thanks very much for the info.
From your experience are there any no go bookies that are more hassle than there worth signing up to? I found bwin to be a pain in the backside, constantly holding on to winnings
Bwin are good IMO, what do you mean by holding onto winnings, were they late in settling your bets? If so, by how long?
Betway does not welcome matched bettors but most peeople dont have a problem, and I can see you have already done them. If you are looking for reviews there are some under the bookmaker tab at the top of the page, and there are various other websites on the internet that review bookmakers.
Ok thanks, issue I had with Bwin was the whole ID thing. They wouldnt accept the photo of my passport although a couple of other bookies were fine witht the same jpeg file, then I had to chase them up to approve it. I think I had to email 8 times in the end to get a withdraweal out of them. Saying that now its done it will probably be a seamless transaction with them.
Ive read a bit about reload offeres from bookies sites, are they what keep everyone going once theyve gone through the initial process of signing up to all the sites?
By the way, thanks for your help and answering my questions so far.
Reloads are what keep you going, and the more accounts you have open, the more reloads you get!
If you become a premium member here you get access to the bonus discussion forums, and although it costs £28 to join, TGT offer £5 cashback for signing up to most bookies, and you could have covered more than the membership cost through the signups you have done so far. Having said that, you can still claim the £5s without paying for premium membership.
Definitely worth doing the William Hill reloads every week (although the ones today were poorer than most). You can generally get a quick fiver profit on each, and there are AT LEAST 2 a week, more often 3 or 4. Ladbrokes and Totesport have also started doing similar deals.
It took me nearly 6 months to make my first £1k - I was a lot slower and more cautious than most members on here. After just over a year I am just over £4.5k.
There is a complete list of bookmakers here:
The Gambling Times | Bookmakers, Reviewed By The Gambling Times | Claim Cashback
They also come with a review and rating based on the collective experiance of all TGT users so if you know the site already and just want to see how safe it is; for example its BetPack, then put in "pack" and search and it will come up.
If you are just looking for some ideas randomly then you can just set it to search all sites and the whole lot come down, there is quite a few though so refining the search makes sense.
If a bookmaker exists that is not on there (possible but not likely) let us know and we will get it reviewed and added.
If something listed is not correct E-mail email@example.com and that will be corrected.
You have had some great advice so far though, there is not really a limit to how much you can make but targets based on what somebody else did or trying to "compete" is not such a great idea, everybody has different risk/reward and time/reward and hassel/reward ratios, all of which will be a huge factor in your profits. Also it will just depend how good you are at it. But overall I would seriously consider £2k in a year to be well within the reach of a monkey with an abacus!
(Bwin are a pretty decent site by the way and if you joined through the TGT list and have a problem there in future let me know and I will get it sorted out for you I have a good contact there.)
Have a plan and stick to it
