The question that users ask more often to the MatchedBetting.com Team is: can we continue to make money from matched betting after we have completed all the sign up offers?

Sure you can with the daily offers!

Daily offers, also known on matched betting sites as “ongoing offers” or “reload offers”, are all the bonuses and free bets that bookmakers create for their existing customers, so that they keep placing bets on a regular basis.

Unlike sign up offers that can be claimed only once, reload offers can be done multiple times. You can repeat them once every week, once every day or even several times per day.

Ongoing offers are very important for players that want to generate a regular income from matched betting.

As long as you have selected the option to receive marketing material from the bookies via email and you maintain your betting accounts in good order, you will receive regular bonus and free bet offers from all the major online bookmakers.

Check your email for frequent offers from your bookies and, if you can, pop in for a visit into your local betting shops for in-shop only offers.

Types Of Reload Offers

Below are some of the most common types of reload offers given by bookmakers to their existing customers:

Bet X Get Y Offers
Bet X Get Y are the most common type of reload offers. With them, bookmakers offer a Y amount free bet to players that have placed a X amount bet.
Advanced variations include free bets paid per each goal scored by a player/team or match won by a team (football) as well as free bets paid for each birdie and/or eagle scored (golf). Another form of type of offers are the weekly free bets.

Weekly Free Bets
Online bookmakers reward their loyal customers that every week place a certain number of bets on football and/or other sports.

Money Back Offers
This other extremely popular offer type includes money back when the original bet lost as well as "IF Offers", where the money is returned to the player in form of a free bet or bonus if the original bet he placed lost and something else happened.

For horse racing, for example, the most common IF offer is the “Money Back if 2nd”, where the player’s bet is refunded if the horse he bet on finished 2nd. Other horse racing money back offer variations include money back if the horse finishes 2nd to the SP favorite, if the horse fails to race, if the horse falls, if the horse finishes second by a length/neck or less, if the horse finishes 2nd or 3rd or even 4th.

For football, a common IF offer is the Bore Draw money back, when the player’s stake is returned if the match finished 0-0. Other football money back variations include money back if your first goalscorer selection scores second, if a certain player scores first/last, if a red card is shown, if a late goal is scored, if a penalty is awarded/scored.

For tennis, the most common IF money back offer is when the player’s original bet lost in the last set (third for women tournaments, fifth for mens).

Acca Insurance Offers
Acca insurance offers are very popular with online bookmakers and matched bettors these days and they are normally available on a daily basis. The offer will typically guarantee the return of the stake if one leg of an accumulator bet lets the player down. Acca insurance is offered for football, golf, tennis, american football, basketball and baseball, among other sports.

Price Boosts
With Price Boosts, bookmakers increase the price of a specific betting selection, betting event or an entire betting market, allowing matched bettors to lay that same bet at lower odds on a betting exchange and guarantee themselves a profit regardless of the result.

Enhanced Odds/Enhanced Winnings
Bookmakers will increase the odds/winnings of a particular event or event selection, typically in presence of a pre-determined outcome. In a common variation, odds/winnings will be enhanced if your selection wins.

A particular version of this is the "free bet if you selection wins at odds of X or higher", offered by Betfair and Bet365 among others on selected televised horse races.

Extra Places
Bookmakers pay out on an extra place for each-way bets on selected horse races as well as golf tournaments, allowing the matched bettor to win both the back and lay bet whenever his selection finishes in the extra place position.

Other Offers
Cash back on net losses: bookies will refund a percentage of your net losses for the week as cash.

Commission free: betting exchanges will charge a 0% commission rate on selected events or over a period of time.

Pay out as a winner: this type of offer normally requires something to happen for which your bet will be paid as winner either immediately even if the event has not yet terminated or in some cases even though it ultimately lost. For example Paddy Power's "2 Up You Win" offer will pay your bet out as a winner if your football team goes 2 goals up at any time during the game. The Irish bookmaker offers similar offer variations for all major sports, including tennis, rugby and american football.

What is gubbing and how to avoid it?

When you complete all the sign up offers and move on to do the reload ones, you'll start hearing of gubbings and players being gubbed, but what does that mean?

Gubbing or gubbed is the term used by players on matched betting forums and sites to indicate when restrictions to the bet amounts and/or to the potential to take advantage of future promotions affect a player's ability to place bets. In a typical scenario, a matched bettor can have his sports betting account gubbed, but will still be able to participate into bingo and casino offers. Reasons for a gubbing vary and include arbitrage betting, placing bets on minor sports and obscure events (especially value bets) and winning on a consistent basis. Make sure you read the keep your betting account in good order tutorial to learn the do and don't do of how to avoid being gubbed.
