If you are new to matched betting you will need to be opening new accounts.
Be sure to open accounts by typing in the URL directly into your browser, i.e. www.bet365.com.
If you follow a link from Oddschecker for example it will be an affiliate link which could mean your account is subject to greater scrutiny as it costs them more to get your business.
Likewise if you click through a link on matched betting site or even through a link on matched betting facebook group – they will track the referring site/page and flag your account accordingly.
You’ll get some kind of new customer offer with almost every account you open, to make the most of these I suggest you bet the free bets on the selections I advise in the daily emails.
If you keep them to doubles and trebles you’ll be less likely to be flagged as a matched better right off the bat.
Other things you should do when opening a new account is to deposit more than the required deposit amount, and also perhaps use the casino and stake £5 or £10 on the slots.
All these things could go a long way to making your account last longer.
See the bookmaker restrictions page for some more advice on prolonging accounts.
Listed below are the key accounts, these are worth taking extra measure to protect and prolong the life of.
