About MatchedBets.com

MatchedBets.com, which is owned by Better Media Ltd, went live in August of 2016 and so is one of the newer matched betting sites to hit the scene. With the aim of improving the current matched betting service all round and focusing on in-house built tools and customer service, MatchedBets.com are driven to become the go-to site for matched bettors.

The team behind MatchedBets.com have a wealth of experience in the betting industry. The companies owner, Dave Archer, previously ran a successful chain of bookmakers before venturing online to develop one of the biggest betting affiliate sites, FreeBets.com. The teams main focus now is MatchedBets.com, which going off the experience of the team, has a promising future ahead.

In this review we’re going to look at the service MatchedBets provides to it’s users, along with what users get for the free and premium subscriptions that are on offer.

MatchedBets.com Pricing

MatchedBets provide a similar pricing structure to OddsMonkey and Profit Accumulator in that they offer a free membership and a paid membership that can be paid for monthly or annually. The free membership gives users access to 3 bookmakers offers, each with video and text guides, showing them how to complete them using matched betting and make a profit. The 3 offers currently listed with the free subscription are SkyBet, Coral and William Hill. By completing these 3 offers, MatchedBets claim users will make around £50 profit. These offers are some of the more straight forward offers to complete and so are well suited to beginners. They also only require a combined total of £15 in bookmaker deposits in order to receive £60 in free bets. The free membership should be enough to show you what MatchedBets are all about and how the site works. However, there are additional tools you get with a premium membership.

MatchedBets Pricing

MatchedBets.com Pricing

After completing the 3 offers with the free membership, users can upgrade to premium for a monthly cost of £14 or an annual cost of £99. We signed up to the monthly subscription for the purpose of this review but the annual subscription does offer excellent value and works out at only £8.25/month, which is an annual saving of £69.

You can sign up to any of the membership packages using the buttons located at the bottom of the homepage. After a simple signup form consisting of your name, email and password, you’re in and good to go. If you’re upgrading to a premium account, you will be redirected to PayPal to set up a recurring payment.

MatchedBets also offer a 30 money back guarantee which you can claim if you have not profited from the service within 30 days. Membership fee’s will be made back by completing one or two offers and so I expect the majority of people who upgrade will be happy with the fee.

As mentioned above, premium membership does unlock a few extra features in your MatchedBets.com account. You will have access to their accumulator tool ‘AccaBackers’ which will help you take advantage of the numerous ACCA insurance offers given out by bookmakers. Users who are starting out with the free membership probably won’t need the use of this tool just yet as it is used for reload offers which are to be used after completing the signup offers.

 

First thoughs on MatchedBets.com

Our first thoughts on MatchedBets is that is extremely well designed. Everything you need is easily accessible from the dashboard which is where you land when you log in. You’re greeted with a welcome video which explains the basics of matched betting and below this are links to 3 articles which aim to teach you everything you need to know to get started matched betting. Scrolling further down the page brings you to offers you are currently in the process of completing and some offers which MatchedBets recommends.

 

MatchedBets Dashboard

The MatchedBets.com Dashboard

The navigation bar at the top of the dashboard conveniently shows your total profit from matched betting and you have the option to share this with friends and followers via Facebook and Twitter. There’s also links to the offers pages, informational articles, tools such as the odds matcher, AccaBackers and calculator, the MatchedBets.com forum and various methods of contacting the support team.

 

MatchedBets.com Offer Guides

Hovering over the offers button in the navigation bar provides links to various offer pages including :

  • New customer offers
  • Existing customer offers
  • Accumulator offers
  • Casino offers
  • Bingo offers

We started off with the new customer offers as recommended in the guides. This displays a list of various bookmakers and the sign up offers they give to new customers. At the time of writing this review there are 48 offers listed with a total guaranteed profit of £1,235. The offers are listed by difficultly, although even the offers towards the end of the list are quite simple if you follow the guides provided.

Next to each offer it displays the guaranteed profit you’ll make from that offer alongside a link to instructions on how to complete the offer. The majority of the offers towards the top of the list have explainer videos which guide the user through the offer from opening an account with the bookmaker, all the way through to placing the bets and receiving the bonus. Each offer is broken down into steps with the key points about the offer listed at the top, moving down to how to place your qualifying bet to receive the free bet, and finally how to use the free bet to make a guaranteed profit. The videos and guides are very well written and are broken down in a way that are easy to read and follow, even for beginners.

What we especially liked about the offer guides at MatchedBets is the embedded odds matcher. Each offer has the odds matcher tool embedded into the page and is preconfigured to that specific offer. For example, if you view the SkyBet offer page, the embedded odds matcher will only show matches from SkyBet. There are also options to add a filter to the results which include choosing a sport, a min/max rating, markets and event times. Events in the odds matcher are listed by a value rating and clicking on a chosen event opens up the matched betting calculator in a new window. When accessing the calculator by clicking on an event, it is automatically preconfigured with the odds of the selection, the bookmaker and exchange to be used. The preconfigured odds matcher and calculator on individual offer pages are an excellent time saver and will undoubtedly help beginners complete the offers with ease.

 

MatchedBets.com Tools

There are a number of tools and features provided to free and premium customers. Below we take a closer look at each one individually.

Odds Matcher

We briefly touched on the odds matcher above but we’ll take a deeper look into it now. There are two ways to access the odds matcher tool. Either from within an individual offer or via the button in the navigation bar at the top of the page. As mentioned earlier, if you view the odds matcher from within an offer page, it will be pre-configured to that offer and show only matches for the bookmaker in which the offer is related to. If you access it from the nav bar it will display matches from all bookmakers in the system. Currently there are 37 bookmakers listed in the odds matcher and it covers a range of markets for football, tennis, golf and horse racing.

Matches are ordered by either ‘match %’, which is the % of the qualifying bet or bonus you will keep, or by SNR %, which is the % you’d keep from a free bet. These two options give you the best possible matches to make the most profit depending on whether you are placing a qualifying bet or using a free bet.

An impressive feature in the odds matcher is that it automatically updates as odds fluctuate on the exchanges and bookmaker websites. Most odds matchers require you to click a refresh button to update odds and so this is a very handy feature which should save users a lot of time.

Calculators

Users have access to one calculator on MatchedBets.com, which is really all your need as it is essentially multiple calculators bundled into one. This again saves time in not having to search for the correct calculator to use for an offer. Simply open up the calculator and use the drop down options to configure it to your offer type.

Users can change the bookmaker and the exchange in the calculator, which will automatically update the commission % to the associated amount. There are also 9 settings for various offer types. These include :

  • normal bet
  • freebet
  • bonus
  • bonus on win
  • bonus on loss
  • free bet on win
  • free bet on loss
  • freebet with freebet on win
  • enhanced odds as free bets

MatchedBets.com Calculator

 

When accessing the calculator from a specific offer page it opens up pre-configured with details from the offer. This is one of many ways MatchedBets.com have made the user experience that little bit better.

Other options in the calculator include the ability to overlay, underlay and to create a custom bet.

Once the tool has calculated your back and lay stakes and you have placed your bets, you can click the ‘Track Bet’ button which will add it to your ‘open bets’. When the event has finished you can select whether the bet won at the bookmaker or the exchange and your total profit will be updated automatically on your dashboard. You have the ability to open bets back up after you have marked them as ‘done’ and edit them if needed.

 

AccaBacker

‘AccaBacker’ is MatchedBets’ in-house-built accumulator tool which comes included with premium accounts at no extra cost. It generates accumulators to use with ACCA insurance offers and with so many of these type of offers around, this tool is a great addition to the site which can boost your matched betting profits by thousands a year.

There are four methods of using AccaBackers with ACCA insurance offers. All of which come with guides on how to use them. These are :

  • Lay Sequential
  • Lay at Start
  • Lay Sequential with Lock In
  • No Lay

You can use the filter function to show compiled accumulators for each specific method, sports, bookmaker or other factors such as event date, min/max odds and number of selections.

Acca Backers is configured with the rules of each bookmaker ACCA insurance offer and compiles a list of the most profitable bets automatically. There is also the option to compile your own ACCA or switch specific games to ones which may be more suitable to you. Currently there are 13 bookmakers listed in the Acca Backers tool which gives a great choice of offers to complete on a daily basis.

 

Racing Matcher

The MatchedBets Horse Racing Matcher displays matches for popular hose racing offers such as the Bet365 4/1 offer, Betfair’s 3/1 winner offer, William Hill’s High 5 and many others.

Horse racing offers can be very profitable but they key is to find very close matches to keep qualifying losses to a minimum. The horse racing matcher helps you find these close matches quickly and easily.

One thing we love about MatchedBets is their auto-updating odds matcher and calculator. Odds fluctuate on the betting exchanges and bookmaker sites very frequently as the market changes. It can be an annoyance when you find a good match and open the calculator to work out your lay stakes only to find the odds have changed when you visit the bookmaker. However, MatchedBets have eliminated this problem as the odds update automatically in their odds matcher and calculator so that you can see in real-time when the odds have moved. Thankfully, they have included this feature in their horse racing matcher, which is excellent. Horse racing odds are more susceptible to change and this is what makes it such a good feature to have integrated into the tool.

MatchedBets.com Horse Racing Matcher

You can select which horse racing offers you would like matches displayed for as well as choosing specific courses and races. The racing matcher is configured only to show matches which comply with the T&C’s of each racing offer. For example, the Bet365 4/1 offer is only valid for horses priced at 4/1 or more. Therefore, the matcher will not show any matches below these odds.

The matcher displays the Expected value of the bet along with the odds, lay stake and liability. Once a match has been found, users can click on the calculator button next to the match to edit their stake or simply click the ‘Track’ button to track all bet details into their profit tracker.

The racing matcher is still in beta but it’s been getting some excellent feedback and is proving to be an excellent addition to the site from MatchedBets.

 

MatchedBets.com Support

Customer support is an area in which MatchedBets excel in. They offer support to both free and premium customers via live chat, email, social media and their on-site forum. The main feature with their support is their live chat. Customers can speak to a member of the support team from 8am until late, 7 days a week. We tested out their service and were connected with a member of the team almost immediately who dealt with our query prompt and politely. After sending an email to [email protected], we received a reply within 30 minutes which is an excellent response time.

 

MatchedBets.com Mobile Optimisation

The MatchedBets.com website is fully optimised for use on a mobile device such as phone or tablet. This includes use of the embedded odds matcher, calculator, the AccaBacker tool and even their live chat support feature. With matched betting opportunities throughout the day, matched betting on the move is a way to increase your profits exponentially. MatchedBets understand this opportunity and have developed their website in a way that makes this possible with ease.

MatchedBets.com Affiliate Program

On top of the earnings you’ll make matched betting with MatchedBets.com, you can also join their affiliate program and earn commissions on any customers you refer to them. It’s free to join and anyone can apply. When you sign up as an affiliate you’ll be given a tracking link which you can post anywhere such as on your website, your Facebook profile, tweet it or simply email it to friends and family. When someone clicks on your link and signs up to MatchedBets.com, you’ll be given a percentage of their subscription fee. You can choose between two commission types when you register. Either 50% commission or a one-time £15 per referred customer. If you choose the 50% option, you’ll receive 50% of the referred members subscription fee every time they pay it. So if a member you refer stays as a member for 6 months, you’ll receive 6 payments of 50%.

MatchedBets.com use idev affiliate software to track referrals which is also used by various other matched betting sites and is considered to be a reliable and accurate way of tracking customers. The two commission choices are very competitive compared to other matched betting affiliate programs and we would recommend opting for the 50% commission over the one-time payment as it will, more often than not, result in a greater income.
