Week 12: "Journey complete! But not without some hurdles" | My Value Betting Journey from $1k to $2k

TOTAL PROFIT: +1088 | WEEK 12 RESULT: +484 | 25/11/19 - 01/12/19

After 12 weeks and 2,460 trades, I not only completed my journey to $2k, but I smashed right through it, ending the week with $1,088 profit. As you can see from my results, week 12 couldn’t have gone much better for me, making $484 in one week! But although I completed my journey, it didn’t come without some hurdles, as I was limited by one bookie and had stake limitations by another.


I was already performing very well with Bet365, but after a successful Wednesday night, where I won some big bets at big odds, they limited me. Overall, I profited $403 from them and I only found out they limited me after getting this message (see photo). I also had some stake limitations imposed upon me from William Hill, similar to what happened with Betfair last week. As I said last week, if a bookie is limiting the amount of money you can place on a bet, place a bet of 60-70% of that max bet size.

The first thing I did was withdrawing all of my money from my Bet365 account, which gave me approx. $638 USD to play with. Next, I read this article which explains the 8 steps to signing up with a bookmaker. Using this article, I decided to invest $200 of that into my William Hill account, which I had run down to $0 back in Week 2. But I also needed to find a new bookie. I chose Betsson as they provide a high volume of trades and a very good welcoming bonus. They offer a bonus doubling whatever you deposit up to 2000kr, which equates to over $200 USD. Note: Remember to verify yourself before depositing money, because if bookies limit you before you’re verified, the process of withdrawing your profits can be a lot harder.



This is the most important part of getting a bonus from a bookie! As you can see in the Betsson terms and conditions, I have to turn over 2000kr eight times, at minimum odds of 1.50 within 30 days, or, my bonus and the winnings generated from it will be forfeited. If you think this is something you might struggle to achieve with value betting, you should definitely try Oddshero, which was created by the Trademate Sports team. Oddshero applies the proven method of Matched Betting to help you profit from bookmaker bonus offers.
