sounds like a waste of money mr. white. if you want to make a couple hundred off bookies, have a google for matched betting.

Because matched betting involves opening new accounts and utilising the free bets. There's only so many new accounts you can open before they start clocking duplicate names/IP addresses/card details etc.
That's why Timmbo said "make a couple of hundred" - it's a one-off scheme to make a few quid/get a betting bank roll together, rather than an everyday earner.

i don't think it's matched betting. i'm not doing it mind. just thought it might interest someone. he said you need £100 in your betfair account to go through with it - and i dont have that much to lose at the mo!

Whitey, my post was aimed at Noble as I thought he was being sarky towards Timmbo's suggestion of trying matched betting. Didn't realise he was referring to your link.

sounds well dodge. could be some sort of arbitrage betting guide? either way, deffo wouldn't hand over money for a guide. matched betting is the only 'risk-free' betting beginners should get in to, FACT.

Withdrawls from online betting accounts take 2-3 days, so you wouldn't be able to get the profit into your bank account in time for this weekend. But yeah, it's a pretty simple process providing you have a basic knowledge of odds.
