Starting With £8 Guide

Follow This Plan To Turn £8 Into £800 In 3 Months!

Fantastic news - you can now start matched betting with as little as £8!

Note if you can start with £25, then you can turn this into £1,000 in 3 months as shown in Starting With £25. Check out the Which Plan Should I Follow for a comparison of the plans.

This plan is written by the resident matched betting expert, Jon, who is available on Live Help 7 days a week and in the free (and awesome!) Facebook Group should you need any help.

Let's cover the FAQs first:

The Week By Week Plan provides you with 2 to 3 Welcome Offers to complete each week. Each Welcome Offer may initially take up to 40 minutes (2 hours/week), but once you are familiar with completing Welcome Offers it can take as little as 20 minutes (1 hour/week). It will take 1 working day for the bookmaker to process your withdrawal, therefore complete the Welcome Offers on different working days (Mon/Tue/Wed/Thur/Fri-Sun).

You can start making profit today. In your first week, you will make £12 profit. From the second week onwards, you will make between £20 to £100 each depending on the advised Welcome Offers. Easy money!

No problem! We have split up the Welcome Offers into a Week By Week Plan to help members make the most amount of profit in a set timeframe. If you take a week on holiday or can only do 1 offer in a week, don't worry, we just advise keeping to the week by week order of the Welcome Offers.

Again no problem! Just skip their Welcome Offer and move on to the next Welcome Offer. You can always keep an eye out on Daily Offers by signing up to OddsMonkey for offers for accounts you already have.

Our job is to make you money! Jon is available on Live Help, 7 days a week. Should he be offline at any point, just leave a message and they will reply within 24 hours (usually much sooner).

Yes! If you have more funds to invest initially into matched betting, you can complete more Welcome Offers at the same time.

We are showing with the Week By Week Plan that you can start from as little as £8 and still make £800 within 3 months from matched betting. You can turn £25 into £1,000 in 3 months with the Starting With £25 plan or £100 into £1,000 in 2 months by following the Starting With £100 plan.

Yes! Check out the Team Profit matched betting spreadsheet which has received very good feedback.

You do not have to use it, but some people like to use it to automatically track profit, balances and more!

Week By Week Plan - Week 1 (£12 Profit!)

First things first, you will need to understand how we do matched betting - start with the Perfect Introduction and then the Video Guides.

For your first week, complete the SkyBet £10 No Deposit Offer worth £3 profit risk free and the Coral Bet £5 Get £20 worth £9 profit risk free.

Deposit £8 into Betfair. This will be sufficient for your lay bet on your first offer, SkyBet.

SkyBet Offer - Choosing Your Trigger Bet & Free Bet Odds

Trigger Bet: For the SkyBet offer, there is no trigger bet as they are giving you a £10 free bet, no deposit required!

Free Bet: Choose a team with odds of 1.4 to 1.6 on SkyBet. This will ensure you can lay the bet on Betfair with your £8 deposit, as the liability will be a maximum of £3.

SkyBet Offer - Withdrawing Your Profit

If your £10 SkyBet free bet wins: then your SkyBet balance will now be £5 whilst your Betfair balance has decreased by £2, to £6. This gives your £3 net profit.

In order to withdraw your £5 in Skybet, your balance needs to be £10. If you have a spare £5 in your bank account, deposit this and then withdraw the full £10. If not, then withdraw your £6 in Betfair and deposit this into SkyBet. Then withdraw the full SkyBet balance.

If your £10 SkyBet free bet loses, then your Betfair balance will have increased by £3 to £11. Withdraw £5 from Betfair and use this to deposit into Coral.

Once you have completed the SkyBet offer, it's time to move onto the Coral Bet £5 Get £20 offer:

Coral - Choosing Your Trigger Bet & Free Bet Odds

Trigger Bet: Choose a team with odds of 1.5 to 1.8 on Coral. This will have a maximum liability of £3.50 on Betfair. If your Coral bet wins, withdraw the £7 to £9 and deposit onto Betfair.

Free Bet: Choose a team with odds of 2.0 to 2.3 on Coral. Place 2 x £5 free bets on this team, this will have an £8 liability on Betfair. Once this match has finished, repeat this with another team for your remaining 2 x £5 free bets.

You will now have made £12 profit. Easy money!
