Matched betting is one of my favourite ways to make a bit of extra cash. It’s relatively easy especially if you sign up to a platform to teach you step by step (such as Profit Accumulator). Today I’m here to talk about matched betting reloads. What are they? Why do we need reloads? And how do you profit from them?
What are Matched Betting Reload Offers?
Reload offers are what matched betters do when all of the initial bookie sign up offers have run out. Let me explain….
Matched Betters start with Sign Up Offers
Usually when you start out in matched betting you do the sign up offers first. Sign up offers are when you first sign up to a bookie. The free bets from sign up offers are often high value such as £30 from William Hill, £30 from Betway and £100 from Bet365 (true in September 2020). That’s why matched betters make big money fast when they first start. Provided they have not already signed up to loads of bookies and already used their free bets for gambling, these high value sign up offers are up for grabs for new matched betters.
By doing sign up offers, I made over £1000 a month for my first few months of matched betting. if you are interested check out my matched betting blog.
The problem of course is that you can only sign up to bookies once. As they require ID verification you can’t go signing up in different names. So when they have done all of the ‘sign up offers’ matched betters then move onto what we call ‘reloads’.
Examples of Matched Betting Reload Offers
Lets say that you have signed up and completed the initial free bet offers for all the main bookies – Skybet, Coral, William Hill, Bet365, Paddy Power and Betfred (among others). You’ve made at least a couple of grand from that! Is that they end of matched betting for you?
There are two main ways that you will get good and easy matched betting reload offers. You will move onto the reload offers which you get for certain events such as premier league football or big horse races. Also you will be able to sign up to weekly betting clubs such as Skybet Club and Paddy Power’s Rewards Club.
Event Specific Matched Betting Reloads
For example, big premier league football matched usually have a free £10 bet if your correct score bet doesn’t come in. Or maybe bookies will offer a £10 free bet when you bet on the winning team of a certain match.
For horse racing, make sure that you have some free time to do your matched betting around the Grand National and Cheltenham festival. There will often be free £5, £10 and £10 bets for races at certain times of the day.
Quite often you will get emailed about special offers like this so always tick the box to receive marketing and promotional emails when you sign up with bookies!
Weekly Clubs for Reloads
The second way that I’ve mentioned of getting good reloads is to join weekly betting clubs that will give you free bets on a regular basis. For these, you might have to do several matched qualifying bets to release one free bet. For example, in the Sky Bet club you bet £20 to get 10. This can be done as a single bet, but looks more natural if you split it. Here are some of the best weekly reload offers that I know of for you to do on a regular basis:
- Sky Bet Club – Bet £20 get £5
- Paddy Power Rewards Club – 5 X £10 bets will get you a £10 free bet
- Betway £10 free bet club – Opt-in and wager a total of at least £25 on multiples with at least 3 legs (trebles and upwards) between Saturday and midnight of Friday and you’ll get a free £5 on Saturday and a free £5 bet on Monday
- Unibet – In-Play Weekly Free £10
- BoyleSports FREE £5 acca

Can you sustain an income with Matched Betting Reloads?
The answer is a resounding YES!
BUT, it will get harder for you to make high amounts – you may have to do more complex bets or a higher number of bets to release the free bets. It may be that you spend more time on them than you used to have to in the early days.
Saying that, I have been matched betting for over 2 years and can still profit from it. Do a few hours a week I can make between £300-800 a month on reloads. When there is a big match or festival on it can be much more!
