"Consistency is really key to a regular income!"
Date of Interview:
Sunday 23rd May 2021
What's your name and where are you from?
Please can you tell us a bit about yourself?
I’m 64, divorced with three (adult) children and two grandchildren. I’m self-employed in internet marketing, I enjoy sailing and motor cycling, anything that gets me out in the fresh air.
How long have you been a member of Profit Accumulator?
Just over 6 years.
Can you remember how you first heard about Matched Betting and what you initially thought about it? What convinced you to give it a go?
I believe that I came across Profit Accumulator on social media, probably a Facebook Ad or personal referral. I researched matched betting and could see that it worked, so I gave it a go – well, more than a go!
Had you ever placed a bet before Matched Betting? Did you know anything about sports at all?
Just the “office sweepstake” on Grand National day. I’ve never been interested in watching sports, but I have taken part in various sports when I was younger. I knew nothing about betting.
How easy or difficult did you find it to learn Matched Betting?
It’s very simple to learn with the comprehensive training from PA. The more you use it, the more automatic it becomes.
What was your starting bankroll (or cash float)?
I think it was £100.
How much profit have you made so far?
My record keeping has become much more robust and accurate over the years, at the moment, I’m making an average £1,600 a month. From the outset, around £70,000.
(Note: Sean is an example of one of our long-term, pro-members. Although these members show what can be possible with Matched Betting when you work to develop the right mindset, dedicate time to learning and actively maintain a large bankroll - most of our typical members aim for anywhere between £300-£1000 profit a month).
Have you bought anything nice? Or are you saving up for something special?
I’ve paid for my daughters weddings, over £20k each, I’ve had a number of holidays and I’ve invested in my business.
Do your family and friends understand how you have made the money?
Yes but they still show no interest. That’s not a problem for me, I just send them pictures from wherever I might be in a 5* accommodation with a message saying that this is another free trip!
Are you a person that tracks everything or do you just roughly tot up your total profits every week or so?
I’m originally an engineer, record keeping comes naturally and it’s an essential part of PA.
How much time do you think you spend Matched Betting? When do you tend to do most of your Matched Betting?
I spend around 15 hours a week, I am in the habit of doing two hours every day after breakfast. Then I just forget everything until around 10 pm, when I update my records with my winnings.
What kind of offers do you do to make money now?
I only do sports betting, the casino bits aren't for me. I get a lot of “personalised” offers (by email, text & in my accounts) as I have been with most bookies since the beginning. I balance these with a number of mug bets as this is crucial to keeping accounts open. ACCA’s are consistently good winners for me and generate a lot of the other offers that I get. I do a minimum of three a day, using the ACCA catcher.

How have you found PA's services so far? What aspects do you like the most?
The support from PA staff and other users is great. You can ask the most basic questions and get a good, solid and polite reply. The training is excellent on the site and the forum is a great resource.
What advice would you give to someone who is thinking of starting Matched Betting?
Do the starter offers, you’ll see how easy it is to make money. When Covid is over, sit with me for an hour or so and I will tell you how much I have made before the events happen!
What would you say to people who think Matched Betting is a scam, gambling or too good to be true?
I have an international, internet based, network marketing business. “Scam” is a word I see every day. I have two replies, “Do you believe the words of a single, anonymous individual on Google, or me, who you know and trust?” and “Here’s a recent bank statement!”
What advice and tips would you give to a new PA member who has just started Matched Betting?
Follow the training, it’s a marathon, not a sprint and ask questions.
What advice and tips would you give to a new PA member who's just about to start doing reload offers?
Similar advice, do one offer at a time, take your time.
Consistency is really key to a regular income!
Finally some quick-fire questions...
Football or Horse Racing?
Forum or Facebook?
Betfair or Smarkets?
...and a word or short phrase to sum up how you feel about Matched Betting with PA?
Easy, fun & rewarding!
