Day 1: The Bonus Bagging Trial

Every day for the next week I’m going to demonstrate how matched betting works. To make things really simple I will not be researching the bets myself but instead using the Bonus Bagging service provided by Mike Cruickshank. In having completed the majority of signup offers myself already, for purpose of demonstration I will be paper betting. I will screen grab everything of significance as I go.

I hope through this demonstration it will become obvious just how easy it is to profit from bookmaker signup offers!

Assume that I am starting with the recommended Betfair balance of: £75.

After logging in to the Bonus Bagging back end I hit “Request New Bet”.


Requesting a bet is as easy as clicking a button with Mike Cruickshank's Bonus Bagging Service.

Easy as clicking a button..


Within 2 or 3 minutes I receive an automated email from Mike:


Monday's Bonus Bagging Email

Mike emails me with the recommended bet.


I click the link to the bookmaker and head on through, in this instance to the PaddyPower web site, signup and deposit £10. Following Mike’s instructions I find the market specified: Anzhi Makhachkala v Lokomotiv – Over / Under 2.5 Goals



Clicking on Over 2.5 Goals adds it to the bet slip.


PaddyPower Bet Slip

Within the bet slip I check and place my bet.


Once my bet is placed I head on back to the email and click the link that takes me straight to the correct Betfair market.


The Betfair bet slip.

I can then check and place the bet through the bet slip.


That’s it! It’s taken me about 10 minutes total including time spent signing up to the bookmaker and my first bet has been placed.

Regardless of what happens in this football match – whether there are over 2.5 goals or not – I have locked in a small loss of 37p.

More importantly though, once the bet settles I will have qualified for PaddyPower’s £20 bonus. I’ll place that tomorrow.

      Hi Vince:

      If the bet wins at StanJames it would return £11 profit but I would lose £11.36 on my lay bet at Betfair = 36p loss.

      If the bet loses at StanJames I would lose £10 on my bet but I would win my lay stake of £10.14 minus 5% Betfair commission:
      10.14-(10.14*0.05) = 9.63 = 37p loss.
