    Are you referring to Overlay/Underlay?

    No, just a regular qualifying bet but one where there's no loss, rather a small profit. It's got a name, but can't remember it and it's bugging me.

    Unlikely to work. Betting companies soft search your credit file for ID checks, and I would guess a name change would show on there.

    Been 12 months now since i lost the last good accounts. Have kept it going since with low risk casino offers but on a negative for this month so far and getting next to no EV anymore. Think its dead for me.

    Last month was my worst month since starting and I only made £35. Last year I made just over £1500 which is well down on the previous three years I've been doing it. Admittedly I haven't been putting the same effort in, but many of the offers seem t be invite only now and I'm just not getting the invites. The only one that's keeping me going is Bet365!

    I tried to start up again but have very few accounts and just didn't seem worth it. Been trying to convince the girlfriend to let me do it for her but she doesn't want gambling transactions on her accounts as she's looking to buy a house soon. Didn't make a difference for me when I bought but she's having none of it. Oh well

    Yes I had same issue. It sounds too good to be true to an outsider and you cant fully understand it until you do it yourself. This is why ive got no multis, and im not going to pressure family members or others into letting me have an account in their name or bribe them into it by offering them money like many do.

    Anyway, after over 3 years at it myself, you dont realise how much time it takes up until you stop doing it. I have my weekends free again to actually do something healthy and get outdoors. Working all week then spending all weekend watching odds is not good for you.

    Only if you let yourself get to that stage :p

    The only time I was like that was with the Euros where I made loads (enough to fund a significant chunk of my house deposit) and was spending all hours on it but the rest of the time was fairly minimal as I just wanted a bit of supplemental income

    I would like to have a chance to go through all the initial offers again though especially the casino ones they're a lot of fun

    I think youre overestimating what's available even for brand new mb'ers. From what ive seen easy reloads are dead in the water and LR casino stuff is like hens teeth too.

    I have an email account I solely use for MB and I keep getting emails from BEST CASINO BONUS (news@vip.casinoguide.net) with various offers from casinos for signing up. Not sure if these are genuine offers or some sort of spam/dodgy email. Is anyone familiar with this email account or have any dealings good or bad with them ?
