Not one for using online forums?
That’s fine – but when it comes to the Profit Accumulator Forum you absolutely need to make an exception.
Why? As the PA forum is literally a fountain of Matched Betting knowledge and also a profit goldmine – when you know where to look and how to use it to its full potential.
This is where this guide comes in – as a helping hand to get you started on the forum. We recommend using it as a reference point until you really get to grips with using the forum properly.
We cover the basics of the forum first – so if you’ve already mastered those and just want to see where you need to go to find lots of profits – skip down to the section ‘Using the Forum to Boost Your Profits’.
Get to Grips with the Basics of the Forum
When you first open the forum it can seem a bit over-whelming and confusing – but don’t worry it’s actually not.
The forum is structured in a really simple way – with Main Categories, then Subcategories (which sit inside the Main Categories). All types of category have a symbol associated with them (e.g. a horse for horse racing reload offers).
Here are a couple of examples:
In both Main Categories and Subcategories both the Profit Accumulator team and members, like you, can write a ‘Topic’ . Topics can be identified as they have the symbol of the PA team or of the members who first wrote the topic.
Here are a few examples of topics put up by the PA team in the Main Category “New Members Discussion”
Then some topics put up by some members as well...
A topic is the start of a specific conversation about something.
To view the topic in full you just click on the title.
Here we’ll use the topic “New Member saying hello” by ‘thecoder11’ as an example:
(It's also worth noting that 'Topics' can also be referred to as 'Threads' or 'Chat Threads' too among the members).
When you access a topic, you can then reply to that topic by hitting the big blue ‘Reply’ button.
Each reply by a member to a topic is called a ‘Post’ or 'Reply'.
Now you Know How it Works it Time to Explore and ‘Say Hello’
If you’re new to Matched Betting and the forum you are best to head straight for the Main Category ‘New Members Discussion’.
Read through the first 5 topics pinned to the top of the category by the PA staff:
- How to use the forum
- Advice for new people
- Starting out plan
- Common questions when starting out
- Common mistakes when starting out
You will find these topics extremely useful and full of the best advice for beginners. Miss them and miss out!
When you’re ready please go into the topic ‘Welcome to PA – Please Introduce Yourself’, hit the big blue ‘Reply’ button and say hello to everyone!
New and need help or have a question?
In the New Members Discussion category head straight for the topic: New Members General Chat.
If you need help or have a question – in this topic hit the blue ‘Reply’ button and post your question, starting with the tags @administrators and @Moderators, just like AnniM did here:
Other super useful topics for beginners
In the subcategory Beginners Guides (within the New Members Discussion main category) there are some more useful topics to read through for beginners.
We highly recommend the topics “Betting Exchange Overview & Discussion” and the “Exchange Integration Guide” within that subcategory.
Finally, if you head to the sub-category ‘Sports Training’ then the subcategory ‘Finding Your Bets’, the topic ‘What to Bet on Today’ is brilliant if you have no clue about sports and/or what is best to bet on each day.
Using the Forum to Boost Your Profits from Matched Betting
Topics ‘O Knowledge on the Forum
To be highly profitable and efficient over the long-term in Matched Betting there are certain habits you must pick up. The most important habit to master is that of gaining essential knowledge through reading what others have done before you and what they’re doing now.
After our guides the forum is the best place to do this.
The forum is where many elite members like Alun hang out on a daily basis – and is where these members drop numerous titbits about refined reload offer strategies that are working for them.
We really can’t emphasize enough how important following key members on the forum and reading through reload offer topic guides and discussions is to enhancing your profits. Once a week instead of watching a TV program you really don’t need to watch sit and read on the forum instead. You’ll be amazed at what golden nuggets of advice pop up that can seriously take your profits to another level.

Topics ‘O Gold
Now we come to our favourite topics of the forum – the ones that help make us lots of money!
These are the topics you want to be watching whenever you can if you’d really like to boost your monthly profits with Matched Betting.
How do you watch a topic?
By selecting the ‘Not Watching’ button (a bell icon that's crossed out) at the top of the topic and switching it to ‘Watching’ (a bell icon)
Next to your profile icon you will then get notifications pop up every time there is a new post in that topic (via the 'filled in' bell icon).
Here’s an example of notifications coming from the Bet365 2up topic:
Now the key thing to understand about notifications is that you only really want them popping up when it helps you make money.
This is why many of the most profitable topics on the forum are marked as ‘NO CHAT’ as many experienced members want to make the best use of their time and only see notifications for posts that help them make profit.
If you watch these topics too you will also not want to see random questions popping up when you’re looking to make quick profits. Therefore, if you have a question or similar comment about anything to do with an offer you see please be sure to go to the ‘Questions’ version of the topic first before posting. The link to the appropriate questions thread is usually included near the top of the ‘NO CHAT’ topic:
Profitable Topics to Watch
The topics we recommend to watch for great profits include the following for reload beginners:
Then for those who are ready for more advanced reloads:
Profitable Topics to Follow

- How to make £1000 a month (updated daily with a list of reload offers to do if you’d like to aim for £1000 a month – is useful for those with more time spare every day for Matched Betting)
These are two of the most popular topics on the forum and we can’t recommend enough to check them every day as and when you can.
