New UK Users Start Here

Last Updated: Thu 20th Apr 20:02

Welcome new UK users to your first steps into matched betting. This tutorial will help you get started with the easiest offers out there. They'll put a bit of easy cash - approx £267.75 - into your betting wallet. From there, it's onwards and upwards into the intermediate and advanced offers.

So, let's dive straight in.

Your first account - with a betting exchange

In order to matched bet, you'll need an account with at least one betting exchange. The easiest to use for a beginner is Betfair. But Smarkets offers lower commission so if you have a Betfair account, we recommend you open one with Smarkets and give it a whirl. (Other options are Matchbook and BetDAQ ).
