    artiau - not sure about Asain bookmakers, but if your looking for a bit more than just offers and can access the UK racing from any of your lesser known bookies (that I assume dont dish out free bets) you can still make a healthy profit on the horses by each way arbing.

    VahnKaiser - have a look at https://thebetadviser.co.uk got lots of guides etc for newbies

    So basically for what I understood this is basically taking advantage of the free "welcome" cash that bet sites give you?
    Or is it something else?

    Yes that's all the basic stuff is, bet say £20 to get a £20 free bet, lose 50p in the process. Then repeat same process with the free bet and get £16 from it, minus the 50p you lost earlier gives a an overall profit of £15.50

    were you doing matched only or value too?

    @op value betting is a thing now, or better yet value + matched

    I automated the matched betting, the hardest bit was getting reliable odds, even oddschecker was incorrect for a lot of bookies

    In my country the minimum odd is 3.0 for the bonus. You have to place an accumulated bet with at least 3.0 odds with your real money before the registration bonus can be released to you... The bookmakers over here are scammers

    I saw one recently that offered 100% first timers bonus. Minimum bet for release of bonus is 2 odds..
    Can I make money out of this?

    I only bet when I am 99.5 sure of winning which means I could go weeks or months without betting.

    So far, it has served me well and I could turn $100 to $1000-2000 easily.


    The thing is, I think you just have to learn and master a strategy yourself. I dont follow trends, just get stats and analyse em myself.

    It is but the offers have been scaled right back, like bet365 £50 matched offer is now £5, and they are shit hot at gubbing your account if you its obvious you are just there for the bonuses. If you don't have accounts at the major bookies it's still potentially an easy few hundred £ but it's not really worth your time to go out of the way to do imo.

    Yes Twirelex, if you can find a close treble you could sequentially lay it.

    365 is still up to £50 - they scale per customer, if you havnt bet for a while you'll get a 5er. But yeah, gubbings and restrictions are rapid now, but hey ho, still make atleast a grand a month across 2 1% restricted sky accounts due to their BTW £500 on class 1/2 races.

    Hills have just started scaling their offers too - golden goal promo for example is now "£25" but I have a fresh account that gets up to £50

    I bet all the time and I'm on £5. Perhaps it's just used now on the customers they deem profitable for them, I am well in profit.
