We’ve teamed up with Betfair Exchange to offer Profit Accumulator Platinum members an exclusive 2% commission rate on all sports and markets.
To be eligible for this offer you need to:
- Register at Profit Accumulator and upgrade to Platinum (if you’re not already a Platinum member).
- Follow this link to opt in to the offer at Betfair.
Once you’ve opted-in, your commission rate for any bets will drop to 2%. That will be applicable to all bets that settle between 00:00 Sunday 11th February and 23:59 Sunday 11th March.
You need to opt-in before 23:59 Saturday 10th February in order to be eligible.
There is one limitation to the offer. Namely, the total number of back bets you’re allowed to place. You can place no more than 20 back bets throughout the promotional period. You can place as many lay bets as you like though.
Why is this useful for matched bettors?
You might ask yourself - why is this useful when I can get 0% commission at Matchbook?
Here are a few reasons why it might be beneficial for you, as a matched bettor, to opt in to this offer:
- Generally more liquidity than any other exchanges.
- More markets and sports covered than any other exchange.
- Arguably the most user friendly exchange.
- The easiest exchange to fix mistakes on (due to their cash out feature).
- More in play markets than any other exchange.
- Due to the better liquidity, you're more likely to be getting a better price more often.
One of the main reasons it would be beneficial for you, as a matched bettor, to opt-in to this promotion, is that as mentioned above Betfair have a greater number of markets. You may not always need them, but they can be good for potential price boosts or lock ins. For example, all these markets are exclusive to Betfair and are commonly found on Premier League games:
- Double Chance
- Team A to win a half
- Team A to win to nil
- First half over 0.5/1.5/2.5
- Red card
So which exchange should I use?
Firstly, if you haven't already, we would recommend having an account with all three (Betfair, Smarkets and Matchbook). This is because there may be special offers in future at each individual exchange.
In regard to this offer, the key question is - how can I save as much money as possible in order to maximise my profits?
W would recommend continuing using Matchbook to take advantage of the 0% commission offer that is currently running, because it will save you money, but also opt-in to this offer so if any bookmaker offers come up that dont have the applicable market on Matchbook, you can lay off your bets at a lower commission rate than normal on Betfair.
We’ve also had assurances from Betfair directly that this will not affect your account at Paddy Power or Betfair Sportsbook. There is no link between opting into this offer and potentially being gubbed by Paddy Power or Betfair Sportsbook.
