This unusual and useful little guide, in a flash of money-saving inspiration that Channel 4's SuperScrimpers would be proud of, gives you good reason to bother, and good advice to help you take advantage of those "free bets".
Doing exactly what is says on the tin, the book explains how punters, as well as bookies, can make money from these offers.
The author discusses the various T&C's relating to the free bet offers; how to estimate risks and losses with an online calculator; how a journalist took various bookies up on their offer of free bets to open accounts, and kept a 14-day diary of his successes and failures, and the author's breakdown of that punter's mistakes in matched betting, to help the reader troubleshoot their own "free" bets.
In short, you're given everything you need to understand what you're getting into, how to place a bet, and when (and under what circumstances) you collect your winnings.
He often stresses risk and liability, and warns of how you can lose money as well as win, using the bookie's promo bets-you are still gambling, after all!
The offer of a free trial on freebetcalc.com is another nice touch, although the rest of the book is where the meat is.
In terms of bets, I stick to the odd flutter at Aintree or Newmarket, but if someone else is backing a bet, I might go further...
Give it a try! At this price, it's not only a bargain, it's the nearest to a sure thing you'll get. You only have to win once to get your money back and then some!
The book itself was fantastically succinct and to the point. There was no ‘padding’, instead there was only meaty content which got straight to the heart of the issue. The book was well structured to give an insight into the world of free bets and really helped bring amateur betters up to speed on the vocabularies and tricks which these betting websites use to ensure it’s not easy to take free money from them. Although the terminology used in the book was a little daunting at first the mist soon cleared as I began to understand the nuances of the system explained.
In the second half of the book there is a step by step diary account of an journalist and his 2 week journey into the world of free bets. He followed the steps instructed in the book and detailed the difficulties and successes he encountered. This got a little confusing at times but was explained well throughout via a daily de-brief which showed what the journalist did right and wrong on each day of his journey.
The concept itself seemed fairly confusing throughout the early stages of the book but eventually took hold and only at the end did I realise it was a simple enough concept once fully understood, albeit a simple concept which requires fairly complicated tools. The purchase of the book also includes 6 months free membership to their website which gives you the complex tools required to successfully implement the system.Read more ›
A decent amount of money can be made if the rules and pitfalls shown in this book are observed and followed, but it may take some time and certainly isn't risk free.
The book is written in a friendly layman style that could be picked up by anyone, even if they don't have any experience in betting aside from the odd bet on the grand national.
What can't be avoided though, is the fact that to make the methods in this book work, a good deal of 'terms and conditions' of each site must be read first to ensure that your best laid plans don't fall by the wayside.
The great thing about this book however, is you get access to an online tool with videos and calculators that when mastered will really get you moving. It also includes a section where a 'newbie' tries it out and you see the pitfalls he encounters first hand.
So, if you like sport, gambling and putting one over on the bookies, then this book is a good investment to help you minimize your losses and perhaps even turn a tidy profit, but beware, as will any gambling, you need a head for numbers and no small amount of patience.
This guide is set out clearly and broken up into easy to digest segments. It opens with a guide to typical terms used on these betting sites and an explanation of what they really mean. From `matched bet' to `even money' etc. It really does assume no prior knowledge, so just about anyone could use this guide, as long as they are over 18 of course.
It offers real life examples, screenshots and a video of the whole process, so you are left with a clear idea of what is happening and how to recreate it yourself. And then there is Tim's diary, providing a real life example of what to do and what not to do. What to avoid and how to make the most money without risking your own funds. Personally I'd quite like to see a second diary, that combines Tim's attempts and the author's suggestions, to prove his tips work. But perhaps that will be the sequel!
The guide highlights all the risks, explains the terms and conditions that the free bet offers are tied up in and recommends which sports are most suitable to bet on. Those who purchase this ebook also get access to a free online tool - FreeBetCalc.com - and an explanation of how to use it. Overall I'd say this is a really useful guide that clearly demonstrates that there is money out there for the taking, if you are smart about it.

Matched betting is brilliant, however the book isn't. I've done a lot of matched betting shame the Author hasn't, save your cash.Published 19 months ago by C. J. Eynon
I’ve seen various websites that boast about making free money from bookmakers – but I always thought that I’d have to know loads about sport, gambling – and worse – maths. Read morePublished on 19 May 2014 by JERH
