READY TO START?
If you haven't already please check the list of what you need to start matched betting before proceding to the first step of our guide below.
FIRST THINGS FIRST:
Before you can start doing your first matched betting offer you have to register with Smarkets Betting Exchange.
We can't do matched betting without a betting exchange as it's where we place our lay (against) bets that make the process risk-free and guarantees our profits. The is why a betting exchange is one of the essential elements of matched betting.
Smarkets gives all new customers a £10 welcome bonus. To receive this bonus you need to deposit a minimum of £20 with a UK debit/credit card when you register. We highly recommend depositing at least £50 into Smarkets though as you will need this amount in the exchange to do your first matched betting offer.
HOW TO USE OUR MATCHED BETTING GUIDE
We highly recommend to start at the first offer (bookmaker: Coral) and then work your way through the offers in order. This is especially important if you only have a small starting cash float (bankroll) of £80-£150.
Our matched betting guide for beginners is set out in a similar method as to how you would learn to ride a bike. For the first few offers we have the training wheels on and are right next to you 'holding your hand' every step of the way whilst you start learning how to do matched betting. By the final few offers though we fully take the training wheels off so that you can start going it alone and build up your confidence. By the end of our guide you will be ready to progress to the next level of matched betting.
