How to continue Profiting from Gubbed accounts

There are still a variety of ways in which you can make money from a gubbed account.

1. Casino Offers

Most of the time when you get gubbed by a bookmaker it will just be on their Sportsbook side, which means you will still be able to take part in their Casino and Slots promotions. Experienced matched bettors know that the significant profits stem from Casino offers, so stick to them and you will continue to earn profits.

2. Bingo Offers etc
