Beta Tester Review
By Sophie, for Insider’s Edge
I had never placed a bet online before and was really impressed with my first experience of Bonus Bagging.
After registering and reading the welcome pack I requested my first bet at 10:50pm (the service is available until 11pm at night) and got a response from Mike within 5 minutes which I wasn’t expecting. Good start!
I placed the bets he suggested using the instructions he outlined in the email. It was easy to set up accounts with the betting platforms and my money was deposited straight away so I was able to place the first bet immediately. Here were my results from my first week:
Bonus Bagging: Week 1
– 6 sets of bets placed.
– Total Profit for the week: £118.34
(I wanted to be able to place the figures for each day but it doesn’t quite work like that because sometimes you’re placing a bet just to get another free bet which you’ll later cash in).
Thoughts after week one: Knowing nothing about betting I’m surprised at how quickly I’ve picked this up. Mike emailed me the day after I had requested my first bet to ask how it went, which was really encouraging and a good chance to ask any questions.
I actually made a mistake on my third bet this week and accidentally placed the wrong bet on a full time result instead of a half time result. This was only my third bet and I hadn’t read the email Mike sent properly. Luckily it was easy to sort out by betting against the same thing but it meant I lost a bit of my profit (£1.86) so my total for the day was £13.97 instead of £15.83. It was good reminder to read the email carefully.
Bonus Bagging: Week 2
– 4 sets of bets placed.
– Total Profit: £59.25
Thoughts after week two: Definitely starting to get into a routine now and finding it pretty straightforward placing bets and using the sites. I email Mike, he sends 2 bets and that’s pretty much it. I find it takes about a 2-3 minutes to place the bets now.
I can’t log on to gambling sites at work (they block them) and I was out a couple of evenings this week so I requested less bets. There doesn’t seem to be a time limit as to how quickly you request bets which suits me.
Bonus Bagging: Week 3
– 5 sets of bets placed.
– Total Profit: £96.14
Thoughts after week three: On average I have been making 4-5 bets a week. If I could access these sites at work I have no doubt I could be notching up these bonuses a lot faster. Tom said I could bet using an iPhone app but to be honest I’m quite happy just doing this as and when I remember/want to.
I have to say, what I really like about Bonus Bagging is the opportunity to fit it around my full time job. You literally place the bet and wait for the money to be credited to your account.
Bonus Bagging: Week 4
– 7 sets of bets placed
– Total Profit: £134.12
Thoughts after week four: I made another mistake this week where I bet on the same thing twice. I must have been tired and not concentrating and I didn’t notice until the next day. I checked my account and I’d actually made twice as much money because the bet had won but I would have lost my bonus money if it hadn’t. So basically I made an extra £40.72 for making a mistake. I’ve not added this to my profit total but it’s a nice added bonus!
It’s funny, I’d definitely be a rubbish gambler, I’m literally following Mike’s rules to the letter like a parrot – I haven’t heard of any of the teams I’ve bet on so far to claim the bonuses.
Bonus Bagging: Week 5
I placed 7 sets of bets
Total Profit: £165.15
Thoughts after week five: I had a couple of bonuses seem to be credited at the same time. It’s been quite hard to calculate the exact profits because as I said earlier you put some your winnings back into another bookmakers to get the next bonus. I know for certain that I’m up £573 in profit so far which I’m thrilled about. This pays a big chunk of holiday money for us and it’s really taken very little effort at all.
Total Profit over 5 weeks: £573
I’m stopping recording results now because I’ve slowed down the frequency of bets to maybe 2 a week (I really like the freedom of just being able to dip into this when I want). I’m up roughly £700 now and it’s been two months. This really is a brilliant service and I can’t thank Mike enough for his help. I would have no hesitation recommending this to others at all.
