Matched betting diary August 2019
Hello and welcome to my matched betting diary August 2019. Here is an overview of sports and casino matched betting offers that I completed this month.
August 2019 sports offers
I completed a variety of sports offers – including ongoing football and horse racing promotions.
Blacktype – email offer: bet £25 get £10 free bet. Easy £7 profit.
Grosvenor Sports – email offer: bet £25 on a double (Real Madrid and Barca) get £25 fre bet
Jenningsbet – 80th minute insurance on Premier League matches yielded a few £5 free bets.
Betfair Exchange Odds On – I hit a few £10 refunds. Backed horses on the exchange at minimum odds of 4.0, then layed at either Betdaq, Matchbook or Smarkets.
Wiliam Hill Scratch of the Day – Made a few quid on the weekend bet X get Y type offers. Then got hit with the dreaded gubbing stick.
Value mugs – Made a few hundred pounds by backing EV+ trebles – either pre-set bookmaker enhanced multiples or my own selections. For example, at Corbettsports on Tuesday 20 August 2019: Burton 3.4, Peterborough 2.25 and Club Brugge 2.8. 113% EV rating based on combined back odds of 21.42 divided by the implied lay odds of 18.95 (3.25 x 2.16 x 2.7).
Betfred shop 2clearandcollect: Back a team on the “2clearandcollect” coupon, then lay at the exchange. I usually just back, lay and hope rather than trading out. Peterhead, New England and Monaco were amongst the teams that triggered a payout.
STSbet – Welcome offer: Bet £30 on a treble (minimum odds 1.80 per selection) get a £30 free bet. £4 qualifying loss and +£22 free bet equals £18 net profit.
Price boosts – Mansionbet: 17 August 2019, Arsenal versus Burnley – Lacazette to score anytime at 4/1 (5.00) BET WON. I advantage played £10, as the true odds were around 2.50 on Betfair.
Each Way No Lay – Basically backing horses £1-3 each-way without laying off. I’ve been using OddsMonkey Each Way Matcher to find EV+ horses.
August 2019 casino offers
I kept plugging away on the low-risk casino offers. These can be unpredictable due to variance.
Dunder – Deposit £20 get 30 free spins with 25 x wagering on winnings. Profits included +£85 using Big Bad Wolf.
Betfair Arcade and Casino – overall +£45 on the daily of bet X get Y free spins offers -usually with zero wagering on free spins winnings.
William Hill Games – Bet £5 get £5 bonus = +£100
Gamesys sites (Starspins, Heart Bingo, Monopoly Casino, Jackpotjoy and Virgin Games) – Won £15 on a box bonanza prize draw.
Partypoker – Bet £5 get £5 bonus with 12 x wagering. Initially was up £30, then -£2 in the end. That’s variance in action.
Risk-free opportunities to build the bankroll.
Earnt a couple of pounds on free games at: Mecca Bingo wheel, Lottoland Freerider, Buzz Bingo wheel, and Gamesys sites.
It’s worth keeping an eye on OddsMonkey forum for existing and new freebie offers.
I like to investigate new strategies and offers on an ongoing basis.
Shop terminals – I see potential value in Matchday Specials, outright markets on all sports, and goalscorer markets in major football fixtures. More to follow in future blog updates.
I’ll be researching new customer offers at Betconnect, Premier Punt, M88, Ohmbet, Betbull, thefootballpools.com and more.
As we move in to September, a busy calendar includes the Rugby World Cup and Premier League football.
That’s me signing off for this August 2019 matched betting diary. Keep an eye on the blog for more news, offers and exciting content.
