basically the easiest way to get loads of free money with no/little risk please.
just look it up on Wikipedia. But for this you should.
I'm off home now.
It's pretty easy (once you get your head around it) but quite time consuming. Can't help you too much as I've forgotten the details, but you simply take advantage of all the free bets betting companies offer.
but I believe the principle is that you sign up to a betting exchange and an online bookmaker. you bet on your selection at the online bookmaker, and then lay the bet on a betting exchange which offering odds on your selection NOT winning, at the same price. Whatever the result, you end up neither winning or losing any money.
You then use the free sign up bets on both sites to repeat the process and make guaranteed money
But this is presuming that the odds are the same. Often you can't You have to do calculations and need a spreadsheet to do it properly because of differing odds and because the bet exchanges charge commission.
More hassle that it's worth, extremely difficult to get your head around, it's not gonna make you LOADS of money, and it's no fun.
that my post now makes no sense.
This is pretty much it. Although I'd argue that they is minimal risk.
Also when I did it I used an online calculator to work out the odds.
If you're a student with alot of time on your hands, it's essentially buying money.
Me and my mate earned £100 from it a few months ago. No idea what was going on though. He did it all.
Or do you mean matching bets as you would do on a betting exchange (like Betfair)?
Well most betting companies offer a sign-up bonus. This usually takes the form of:
1) You sign up and deposit some money.
2) You make a bet (usually must be a win/lose bet i.e. not an each-way or anyfink funny).
3) Once that bet is settled, they credit your account with the same amount of money (as that bet, not your original deposit) up to a certain value (for some it's £50, for some like £500). The trick is usually that you don't get the stake back on that bonus bet (so there's no point in sticking it on a 1/100 shot to secure your £25 as you'll only actually get 25p).
Some companies also only pay you the bonus if your original bet loses.
So, yeah - if you've got bets you're pretty sure to win, it's a feasible way to maximises yr profitz.
However, you do need a bit of capital you're willing to risk to make the best of it (i.e. you need to put £50 or more on a single bet to maximise your bonus bet - you can't spread the risk) and it's essentially an exercise in administration (choosing safeish bets and keeping track of each company you've signed up with and making sure you're complying with all the T&Cs to get your bonus). To my mind, it saps all the fun out of gambling and for the amount of money you're likely to make after losses versus the time you will consuming looking after it, you might as well work at the pub and watch the football there.
Still, if you've nothing else on...
has a spreadsheet that calculates the amounts depending on the different odds and if the stake isnt returned etc. I still havent got round to trying it but my friend has made several thousand pounds over the years because they sometimes send you more free promotional bet offers, and if you change address you can go round again
