The biggest sporting event of the year promises to be an absolute goldmine for Matched Bettors due to the amount of free bets and bonuses available to German, Austrian and Swiss customers during those four weeks.

I’ve listed some tips and tricks below on how to make the most out of Matched Betting this World Cup and earn some extra money for your summer holiday!
4 Matched Betting tips for the World Cup
Sign up to as many bookmakers as you can
The focus from now until the World Cup should be to sign up to as many bookmakers as possible. The majority of the World Cup offers will only be available to existing customers. Hence, the more bookmaker accounts you have, the more offers you will receive. Start signing up now!
Complete the sign-up offers before the World Cup
As mentioned, it makes sense to sign up to the bookmakers now as the free bets and other offers during the World Cup will most likely only be available to existing customers. In many of the bookmaker terms and conditions, it is stated that you cannot take part in other promotional activities, i.e. free bets, while doing a sign-up offer. Therefore, it is important that you have completed the sign-up offers before the World Cup starts.
Remember that there is not much football on before the World Cup starts and after the national leagues finish. This can make it difficult to complete the sign-up offers. The Champions League Final normally marks the end of the season for all major football leagues. This year, the Champions League Final is scheduled for the 26th of May 2018. The World Cup starts on the 14th of June 2018. Hence, you should really get started now!

Prepare to deposit into your bookmaker accounts
Once the World Cup begins and the bookmakers reveal their offers, it is important that you have some money to deposit into empty bookmaker accounts. I expect that most offers will be of the type: “Bet €x and get a €x free bet”, or “bet €x and get your money back if your bet loses”. Therefore, you need some money in your bookmaker accounts as you will have to use your own money to place the qualifying bets. Depending on the offer, €20 – €30 per bookmaker should be enough.
