Ever wanted to buy something, but not had the money? If the answer is yes, then Matched Betting with Profit Squirrel could be the answer you’re looking for.

I’m not a gambler, but over the last few years, I’ve made thousands of pounds from what I’m going to share with you today.

It's changed my life, and I think it can change yours too. It's defined as:

Matched Betting is a betting technique that is used to profit from free bets, bonuses and incentives that are offered by bookmakers. It is based on calculations not luck and is generally considered risk-free.

Matched betting is completely legal, and is a tried and tested method and is not gambling. A spokesperson for William Hill also indicated that the betting industry does not have a problem with the use of free bets.

With Matched Betting You'll:

    • • Earn £500 - £1,000 a month in profit
    • • Spend about 2-5 hours a week doing it. The more time you spend on it the more you earn (It takes roughly 2-3 hrs / week to earn £500 a month)
    • • Signup to bookmaker accounts and make small temporary deposits (which you'll get back plus a profit) in order to benefit from the free bets offered.
    • • Use your computer, phone or tablet to complete the offers from anywhere you like.


How does it work?

You don't need to know a lot of betting terminology or even have placed a bet before in your life. Essentially there are two types of bet which allow the Profit Squirrel Matched Betting method to work:

A ‘back' bet...

This is a bet that something will come true. E.g. ‘I bet that England will win’ is an example of a back bet. If it comes true, then you win the bet and the winnings. If they lose or draw, you would lose your bet and the money you placed on it. You can place a back bet with any bookmaker, such as Coral, Ladbrokes or William Hill.

 A ‘lay' bet...

This is a bet against something coming true and is the opposite of the back bet. For example ‘I bet that England won’t win’ is a lay bet because If they lose or draw, you win the bet.

You can place a lay bet at a betting exchange such as Betfair.

Matched Betting works by placing a back and a lay bet on the same event, so that the two bets cancel each other out. This eliminates any risk of losing money but means you qualify for Free Bets and Bonuses from the bookmaker.

You then repeat the steps using the Free Bets you receive. Whatever the result, you’re guaranteed to make a profit.

What’s the risk?


Matched Betting is easy to learn and anyone can do it. In theory, there is no risk because you will always cover yourself by betting for and against the same event.

However, the risk can come when mistakes are made so be sure to take things slowly, double-check everything and follow the steps exactly. We recommend joining a community such as Profit Squirrel to ensure that you’re fully guided through the steps.

Once you’re confident with the method, you can make thousands of pounds relatively quickly as the profits soon add up. Depositing at gambling websites does not affect your credit rating.
