MAY 27TH – 29TH 2016

Another easily profitable weekend for all concerned with matched betting. Profit Squad members enjoyed extracting £30 – £35 in guaranteed winnings from Bet365’s epic £50 risk free in play bet offer on the Champions League final. Additionally, as both Madrid teams scored in the Milan showpiece, Ladbrokes gave out up to £100 in free bets to their shop customers, which were worth up to £65 in hard cash. £100 profit for those who did only these two offers, taking a grand total of only about 30 – 40 minutes (or longer if your nearest Ladbrokes were a long way from your house).

Usual offers were in abundance, such as Paddy Power’s 2 x £5 free in play bets which have been paying for my weekend curries since the start of the season. Coral also dished out casino bonuses to anyone who did a simple back and lay qualifier with £10 on the big match. I have yet to redeem this bonus so we’ll see if I can add something to the weekend’s takings with that later.

One generous new offer on the scene came from Bwin, with a 25% boost up to £25 on winnings if both teams scored, which, as established above they did. I didn’t get lucky with this one as I backed and laid Real, who, although won the trophy, conceded a late goal to ensure the 90 minute result finished a draw. But with a qualifying loss of just over £3, and a very high chance of winning a free bet from which £20 guaranteed profit could be taken, this was still great value, and any punter who backed and laid the draw will have enjoyed easy winnings.

Only one free bet from horse racing for me this weekend, but slots was where my luck was at, not for the first time! Many people are understandably scared of completing slot offers as one or two losses can dent their confidence, but I will testify to earning consistently more over the two years I’ve been matched betting from slots than I have from sports offers. So don’t be scared, set aside some of those winnings you have made from sports offers, accept you might in the worst case scenario lose that amount, and dive in. Keep records to help you retain perspective during the inevitable eventual losing run, and then watch your back grow and grow.

This weekend I got incredibly lucky from the Boyles Bet £10 Get £2 offer, winning £280 from a single £2 spin. After I had wagered the qualifying £10 and ended £1.50 in profit, I went in gung-ho and bet the entire £2 bonus at once. No wagering necessary! Happy days! To add to this mega win, I also made £28 from Betfair Casino’s Jackpot slots £5 bonus and £48 from Betfred’s 100% virtual football refund offer on Saturday, though on Sunday I lost £20 on the same offer, with the refund to come today.
