Hi Brian, tell us a little bit about yourself

Hi, my name is Brian Costello.  I am a professional drummer/percussionist and have been for around 35 years.  I play all kinds of music from working in a pub to theater and orchestral work.  I have been living in Blackpool for 20 years having previously lived in London, LA and Toronto.   


Ok, so before we get into your matched betting routine & experience, let’s cut to the chase. You’ve recently had a big win whilst completing an offer. Tell us about it…

Yup, I had a very big win of £26k and withdrew £24.5K after wagering.  The offer was Karamba £60 for £60 and I played £4 spins on Book Of Dead and hit a bonus round…  It’s funny as only the week before I had thought what would it be like to get a full house of the explorer guy well now I know, it’s great!  So, I got a full house and then on the next spin, I got 4 rows of him. I was sat in the living room and turned to my wife and said “ Eh we just won £26K” she just looked at me.  It’s weird as I didn’t jump around I just kept staring at the screen. Then I was very careful not to hit the wrong button or go above £4 a spin as I am sure that’s the max you can spin and I didn’t want to give them and excuses not to pay out.  No real plans for the money apart from hitting some against the mortgage.

Brian’s BIG win!

How long have you been matched betting?

I started last January.


What originally made you join ProfitSquad and how did you hear about us?

I was playing drums in panto and saw a post by PaulT who I know from doing shows with him.  He said he was doing really well with this matched betting. I had no clue what that was as I had never placed a bet in my life so I called him and went to his house for him to explain.  So I thought I would give it a go.


How has your experience been so far?

Obviously, it’s been very positive.


How much profit do you make roughly each month from matched betting?

I am not sure but over the year it probably comes in at around 3k.


Do you know what your total matched betting profits are?

Not really but its got to be over £40k.


What do you spend your matched betting profits on?

Just living really and we have had a couple of holidays from the profits.  We are also paying down the mortgage, which is fantastic.


How much time per week do you spend matched betting and how do you fit it into your current lifestyle with work/family etc?

I probably spend 3-4 hours a day but not all in the same sitting.  I find that is enough and gives me plenty of time for other things. I also take days off.


What are the main offers which you focus on on a weekly basis or when they’re available?

To be honest I spend 99% of my time on casino.  I do a lot of ACO which can destroy your bank but if it hits it returns well. There is a lot of sports betting I still can’t get my head around but I realise I need to spend more time learning and spreading the risk.


Roughly how much of your time is spent between casino and sports offers?

99% casino.


Roughly, what percentage of your profit is generated between casino and sports offers?

Pretty much all the profit is from casino.


How has ProfitSquad helped you in your matched betting journey?

Well without ProfitSquad I would never have started in the first place so it has changed my life.


What do you like most about ProfitSquad?

I think the community is really good and questions can get answered quickly.  I also like the fact that members are honest when talking about good or bad days.  You realize you are not alone.


What tips would you give to someone who is considering starting matched betting?

Simple, do it!


What are your goals for 2019?

Stay alive and continue to do what I have been doing.


Anything else you’d like to add that you think may be beneficial to readers?

Do not expect to know everything but be brave and take a leap, you won’t regret it.
