Frequently Asked Questions
It is recommended to start with around €300. Reason being that with most sign-up offers, you get a €100 bonus if you deposit €100. You also need money, around €200, to bet against the bookmaker bets. A Matched Bet always consists of two bets to eliminate risk.
You can also start with less. You can, for example, deposit €10 and get a €10 bonus to try out Matched Betting for the first time. Doing it this way, however, you’d lose out on profit as you are not taking advantage of the full bonus.
Get started with the Matched Betting Guide.
Yes it is. However, it is important to take your time to understand the concept, follow the Matched Betting technique and read the terms and conditions of the offers you are looking to make money from. Before you start, you should certainly read the guides and watch the videos available on DoppelWetten.
The only real risk involved is human error, so you should always double check your bets before placing them.
The biggest risk is actually not the Matched Betting technique but rather that you start gambling (instead of the Matched-Betting-prescribed method of betting). Gambling is highly addictive. If you have had gambling problems in the past then Matched Betting is probably not for you.
Yes. As long as you are over 18 years old and live in a country where online betting is legal. Please ensure you check specific rules and regulations in your country of residency.
The reality is that bookmakers do not like Matched Betting. The reason is simply that the bookmakers do not make any money from Matched Bettors. Contrary to regular punters, Matched Bettors only bet when there is a free bet or a bonus available. And while doing so, Matched Bettors never lose because they always bet on all outcomes of a match.
There isn’t anything illegal or wrong with Matched Betting, despite what the bookmakers may say. Matched Bettors bet smart and win. Bookmakers don’t like when people win and they lose.
Bookmakers offer existing customers free bets and bonuses and in Matched Betting terminology we call these Reload Offers. These are designed to keep their customers coming to the bookmaker’s site.
You can find current Reload Offers in the DoppelWetten Forum.

It is realistic to make up to €500 a month but it really depends on the time you are willing to invest. With only a few hours a week you can make €200-€300 per month.
Not really. Matched Betting is a great way to make money from home but it is not glamorous or a get-rich-quick-scheme. It requires time and willingness to read and understand the concept. Matched Betting is quite repetitive and it requires you to place a large number of bets. However, you can do it from the comfort of your own home and while watching TV or listening to music.
- Time to read and understand the guides
- A PC or laptop (you can use a tablet or smart-phone but it is easier with a PC or laptop as you need several tabs open at the same time)
- Some starting capital. Around €300 is recommended but you can also start smaller
- A DoppelWetten membership
