The Best Matched Betting Services - Which Is Best in 2018?

Matched Betting Services Comparison: Profit Accumulator, OddsMonkey and Profit Maximiser

With so many matched betting services it can be tough for anyone new to decide which is the best for them. In the table below I’ve picked the 3 best services currently out there. These 3 have been around for a number of years and have therefore established a reputation as they’ve grown huge communities of members all making tax-free second incomes.

I have been matched betting since 2014 with Profit Maximiser, but have recently tried out OddsMonkey and Profit Accumulator for a few months for the purposes of reviewing them for SportsTradingTools.co.uk

Whichever you choose you won’t go wrong as they all stellar services that will help you make consistent profits all year round.

Matched Betting Services Comparison Table

Profit Accumulator

Since launching in 2014 Profit Accumulator has seen a remarkable growth and is currently the largest matched betting community out there with over 20,000 members.

OddsMonkey Logo

OddsMonkey

Previously just a software provider for its two main rivals since 2011, OddsMonkey developed their own service platform in 2016 and has proved a massive hit with their customers.

Profit Maximiser

Profit Maximiser is the original community that popularised matched betting. It has made tens of thousands of people a generous 2nd income since it was launched in 2013.

1. Initial Sign-Up Offers - The 'Low Hanging Fruit' Profit

Sign-Up Offers: Bookmakers offer free bets upon sign up run to entice customers to choose to their site over their competitors. Nearly every one of the 100+ online bookmakers and casinos offer these meaning lots of opportunities to profit.

Paddy Power New Customer Sign-Up Offer

Paddy Power New Customer Sign-Up Offer

It is described as ‘low hanging fruit’ because it is the easiest profits you will make – provided you follow the instructions. It’s suggested you keep the majority of the money made in this stage to enhance your bankroll for your future matched betting exploits.

Profit Accumulator

  • Includes both video training and written instructions on how profiting from sign-ups works
  • Full written instructions for 58 sports bookmaker sign-up offers
  • Potential profit of around £1,227

Each one of the services offers an initial profit way and beyond the initial investment made in it – there is no place on the internet that you would get these sort of returns for your initial outlay, so they are all tremendous value for money.

All 3 websites guide each user through beginner’s sections whereby you will start off learning the process of matched betting as you follow the precise instructions to complete (and profit) from the sign-up offers listed.

However, this round is a tie between Profit Accumulator and OddsMonkey for the amount of sign-up offers included and the value that can be returned from them.

But the undoubted winner of this round is OddsMonkey with their superb offering of free one-to-one training sessions. Many of their subscribers may not even use this feature as the training is so good, but for those who need that extra little bit of help when getting started it’s a fantastic idea.

The debate between about which is better – a Facebook Group or a Forum – is really down to personal preference.

The one thing I will say is that activity is a key factor here, and both Profit Accumulator and Profit Maximiser have the upper hand on this. The more activity in these communities then the more profit generated for 3 reasons:

  • People dig in and find new daily reload offers that may have been missed
  • If you post a question you’re likely to get more people helping you out or providing the answer
  • Loopholes – these can be a goldmine and the more members you have with lots of experience then the more loopholes that are going to be discovered. Loopholes generally involve an oversight or mistake by the bookmaker in their Terms and Conditions which allows matched bettors to make astronomical profits in short period of time

In my time with PM there have been numerous ones, but 4 main huge ones that got everyone in on the action:

  • 888 Genie Millionaire Genie Loophole (2014)
  • Sky Casino Roulette Loophole (2014)
  • William Hill Deal or No Deal Bank Holiday Loophole (2016)
  • Mecca Bingo Roulette Loophole (2016)

Loopholes typically last for only a few hours or days and the first matched bettors to hear of it usually make the most. I have made over £8,000 alone in the space of a few days from doing just 3 of these loopholes. Due to it being the first matched betting community of its kind, and therefore the extra experience of the members, Profit Maximiser have always been the first to discover these loopholes. That means they’re usually well rinsed by Profit Maximiser members before the other sites get wind of them.

To me, the debate about Facebook Group vs Forum is inconsequential – it’s more about what benefits the service’s community provides. Profit Maximiser wins this round for the higher chance of loophole discoveries by its more experienced members.

4. Daily Reloads and Calendar Display

Reload Offer: Regular promotions that bookmakers run to entice current customers return to their site over the competitions. For example, Bet365’s £50 In-Play offer.

Bet365 £50 In-Play Reload Offer

Bet365 £50 In-Play Reload Offer

Profit Accumulator

  • Daily update of forum with new reload offers with instructions
  • No calendar feature
  • Weekend emails with the big offers for Saturday and Sunday

  • Daily and monthly calendar
  • Regular weekly emails with instructions on which are the best value offers to tackle first
  • Loophole notification emails within hours of them being spotted
Profit Maximiser Calendar
Profit Maximiser Calendar

This is a huge aspect to consider when deciding which service to go with as this is how you make consistent profits all year round.

As you’d expect from all matched betting services, these 3 all post new reload offers daily, this is the bare minimum their subscribers expect. However, this need to be done in a way that their members can:

  • Easily see which new offers have been posted and, at a quick glance, see which are the most profitable opportunities to focus on for the day
  • Have the ability to plan ahead for the next couple of days. This is crucial during the big horse racing festivals like Cheltenham and Aintree where there are piles of offers on for 3-4 days in a row
  • Keep a track of what offers they have completed through a ‘tick box’

The advantage Profit Maximiser has here is that you can see everything for the current day in one glance and then see what else in coming up in the next few days – allowing you to consider where you time is best spent for the best hourly return for your efforts (yes – many matched bettors have this level of organisation down to a tea!)

I find it strange Profit Accumulator doesn’t have a calendar as it makes it a right pain to have to go through the forum and finds the offers that are on that day.

Profit Maximiser wins this round due to its daily mode and monthly overview calendar. Profit Accumulator doesn’t even have a calendar and OddsMonkey has a calendar that can only be viewed in a daily mode.

5. Software and Tools Included in Yearly Subscription Package

Matched Betting Software and Tools

  1. These speed up the process by doing tasks that would normally have to be done manually. For example, Oddsmatching software which scans the prices of both the bookmaker and the exchange to automatically find the best value bets with the lowest qualifying losses.
  2. There are advanced (or specialist) versions of Oddsmatching software which find profit within a specific markets/bet types. For example, Accumulator software which finds the best value accumulators and helps provides all necessary calculations to aid the user in making a profit.

Profit Accumulator

  • Various calculators
  • Spreadsheets, including a ‘Profit Tracker’ on the website (see image below)
  • Oddsmatching Software (One for all Sports. One for the daily Horse Racing offers specifically.)
  • Accumulator Software included

  • Optional upgrade to external software to take advantage of accumulator bets

Profit Accumulator and OddsMonkey both have a distinct advantage over PM here. There are 2 main tools included in their membership packages that come as separate upgrades with Profit Maximiser. With PA and OddsM you get access to Matched Betting Software (a software which finds the best value bets for users to take) and Accumulator Software (which allows you to profit from accumulator matched betting). These both come as optional upgrades/add ons with PM.

However, the winner is OddsMonkey. The reasons being that, before it was a matched betting service provider, OddsMonkey created the original Oddsmatching software and then licensed its use out to the likes of Profit Accumulator and Profit Maximiser.

Profit Accumulator and OddsMonkey came into disagreement in 2016 when OddsMonkey decided it was going to compete with Profit Accumulator by turning into a fully-fledged service provider. This has caused Profit Accumulator to source/create their own new software and a quick google search shows that quite a few of their customers complained about the disruption this caused. They are still testing new software in beta mode.

For this reason, it’s hard not to give it to OddsMonkey. Their software will always be reliable and they will always be ahead of the game in this department compared to their competitors as they have the resources, skills and experience.

Betting Mastermind with Project Prosperity Training

Mike Cruickshank’s Betting Mastermind provides users with lifetime access to the 8 matched betting tools (including Profit Maximiser and both Oddsmatching and Accumulator software) used to grow a £500 bankroll into £15,000 in the space of just 8 months.

6. Website Design and User Interface

  • Sleek, nicely designed

  • Lacks a sleek look and design
  • Easy to navigate
  • Includes a ‘Tick When You’ve Completed the Offer’ function for easy tracking of progress
Profit Maximiser Calendar Offer Example - Coral Reload
PM Calendar Offer Example

Arguably one of the least important aspects when choosing a matched betting service – but a good, clean and easy to navigate website is something people expect in this digital age.

OddsMonkey and Profit Accumulator verge on looking exactly like each other, as you may have seen from the screenshots included in this comparison. Both have a sleek user interface which is a pleasant experience for anyone to navigate around and use. Content is easy to find and software is nice looking on the eye and easily usable.

Profit Maximiser had a recent update at the beginning of 2017 but this was much needed – it still doesn’t bring it up to the standards of its competitors though.

The result is a draw between OddsM and PA as they both have stellar looking websites that are easy to navigate for any user.

7. Pricing

I know it’s hard to see when you haven’t signed up to any of the services yet, but the subscription prices of each one doesn’t really matter too much. Once you get into their member’s areas and start to accumulate the profits on offer then the annual subscription fee will become insignificant and one that you will be more than happy to pay at the beginning of every year.

The return you can make on this small initial investment throughout one year is truly astronomical.

If you are not convinced the process works then try the no-obligation free trials which will get you making your first £45 – this will allow you to see that the process of matched betting really does work for real.
