These are just a handful of questions we’ve had come into our inbox in the past few weeks, so we thought we’d go and make a quick blog post explaining who can do matched betting, and why you should be doing it.
The 3 (not so) Big Questions
How old are you?
If you’re 18 or older, then you can sign up to and place bets at bookmakers.
Do you live in the UK?
One of the perks of living in the UK is that you have access to a truckload of free bets, bonuses and new customer offers, from over 50 online bookmakers. If you live in the UK, you’re in luck.
Do you have a laptop, phone or tablet with internet access?
We’re going to assume it’s a yes considering you’re reading this blog post…
So, hopefully you got 3 out of 3 for those questions, but what about the other hurdles when it comes to getting started?
Help, I know nothing about betting
You don’t need to have placed a bet before in your life to learn matched betting. If anything, it’s better if you haven’t, as you’ll be able to profit from even more of the bookmaker’s sign-up offers.
Here at Oink Odds, we break down matched betting by creating simple guides, using step-by-step instructions. You don’t need to have known the difference between a bookmaker and a betting exchange before starting out, as you’ll learn all the lingo in the guides, or by asking someone in our Facebook group who’ll be able to help you out.
I’m already signed up to quite a few bookmakers
Even if you have a few betting accounts already open, we can guarantee there are loads still out there that you’re not yet using, all with sign-up offers that you can profit from.
The bigger bookmakers also give out lots of reload offers, on football, horse racing, and any big events happening in the sporting world. You’ll be able to cash in on those too!
I wouldn’t know who to bet on
