Today we spoke to valued Profit Squad member, Dave. Dave joined us on a £1 trial back in April 2018 and upgraded to an annual membership two weeks later. Let’s get to know Dave…
Hi Dave, tell us a little bit about yourself
Hi my names Dave and I’m from Pembrokeshire South Wales. I’m 26 years old and currently a student doing an Engineering doctorate.
How long have you been matched betting?
I started matched betting around 3 years ago. I was home from uni from the summer and my mother kept telling me to find a job, but me being lazy I searched for any way possible to avoid this! I googled “how to make money online” and stumbled upon matched betting, and here I am today! I was very sceptical at first and took my time placing a couple of small bets, and after realising this genuinely works I was hooked! By the time the year was up I had paid off my overdraft of £1800 and was no longer relying on my student loan to scrape me through each term.
What originally made you join ProfitSquad and how did you hear about us?
When I first started matched betting I was a member of another service, but soon switched over to Profit Squad after I was recommended to them by a good friend. I found Profit Squad much more suited to my needs as it had a strong community, as well as a competitive price.
How has your experience been so far?
My experience with Profit Squad so far has been excellent, it is especially suited to me as I like to do a lot of casino offers rather than sports betting. That’s not to say that Profit Squad aren’t extremely useful for sports offers, because they are. I just prefer to do casino offers now. The discord integration has been a game changer for me, there’s constantly members and staff members on hand to help when you need it. I find this much better than having to post on a forum and wait for an answer. The layout of the website is easy to navigate and full of useful tools for everything you need. I especially like the number of casino offers posted on the calendar daily, as this relieves the headache of looking for them yourself.
How much profit do you make roughly each month from matched betting?
So when I was sports betting I was making on average around £400/500 per month, but that was with minimal effort as I wasn’t that driven to spend the time needed to make more money. However, I decided to give casino a good go and it was the best thing I’ve done, I’ve been consistently making an average of £2000 per month and it has genuinely changed my life. I no longer have to worry about not being able to go on holiday, or worry that I don’t have enough money to go out for a few pints!
Do you know what your total matched betting profits are?
Since I started a few years ago my total profit from matched betting is definitely over £30,000, but I haven’t got an exact figure.
What do you spend your matched betting profits on?
I spend most of my profits on enjoying myself such as going out for food and drinks, and I spend far too much money on golf clubs. Recently i wrote my car off by driving through a puddle (It was deeper than it looked!!), and needed to buy a new one, so thanks to matched betting I decided to really spoil myself and buy a BMW 330D, which is by far the most expensive thing I have ever bought, and was all from matched betting profits. I would never have been able to afford a car like this without the help of Profit Squad so I can’t thank them enough.
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 matched bet pretty much every day, time varies depending on the number of offers available, but I would say an average of 2 hours a day. Fitting it in with my lifestyle is no issue as I just get it done when I come home from work, and I actually enjoy it so it doesn’t feel like a chore. Even my parents (after 3 years) have finally come to terms with the fact that I’m not gambling, and are even asking how they can get in on the action!
What are the main offers which you focus on, on a weekly basis or when they’re available?
I pretty much focus solely on low-risk casino, with the odd 2-up thrown in and the Bet365 in-play free bets.
Roughly how much of your time is spent between casino and sports offers?
I would say 99% of my time is spent on casino, this is simply because I think casino offers are worth more of my time. And the bonus is that I enjoy doing casino offers much more than I do sports!
Roughly, what percentage of your profit is generated between casino and sports offers?
In the last 6 months, around 95% of my profits are from casino offers. I do need to start doing more sports offers again to boost my profits even more!
How has ProfitSquad helped you in your matched betting journey?
Profit squad has been essential for my daily offers, the calendar is my go to webpage every day, and I just do as many offers as I can from there everyday. Also, the discord integration is excellent, if I have any problems I ask on there and get a reply in minutes. It’s also great for finding offers that are not on the calendar yet with fellow members and staff giving out detailed instructions.
What do you like most about ProfitSquad?
My favourite part about profit squad has to be discord, it is so much quicker to read/ask questions on there rather than post on a forum and wait for a response. It’s also great for seeing what other people from the community are doing.
What tips would you give to someone who is considering starting matched betting?
I would give the same advice as is given to most newbies on the forums. Take your time and start slow, this isn’t a get rich quick scheme, your efforts will be rewarded. Once your bank grows, so does your profit! If you need any help, just ask on discord and people are more than happy to help you out, however, read and re-read the guides first and make sure you understand completely what you are doing. Also, don’t overlook casino offers (low-risk), these are extremely lucrative as long as you are persistent and look at long-term profits.
What are your goals for 2019?
My goals for 2019 are to mix in more sports offers with my daily routine and to also make at least £20K. I’d like to start a help-to-buy ISA which will be funded from matched betting.
Anything else you’d like to add that you think may be beneficial to readers?
Honestly, this really does work! It has literally changed my life for the better, and joining Profit Squad will be the best decision you’ve made!
