IMPORTANT UPDATE Feb 9TH, 2019
2019 is going to be the year Matched betting in America takes off. Lots of new legislation has come in paving the way for bookmakers to open in the US. Also we are in the process of making a free matched betting site exclusively for matched betting in the USA. It is not set up yet but will be launched soon.
So I have set up a new Matched Betting USA Facebook group here to keep up to date on all the offers and news as it comes to us.
No Risk Matched Betting USA
What you need to know
Firstly, you will be able to use the same steps in the matched betting guide for Australia. However as you might know it is not so simple to get a betting account for US citizens. Although there are different laws for each state in the US regarding the use of gambling sites. The general rule of thumb is that it is not allowed.
we have two decent options for making no risk profit from arbitrage and matched betting in the USAHowever, we have two decent options for making no risk profit from arbitrage and matched betting in the USA. The first thing we can do is get onboard with the few sites that accept US customers. The best options regarding matched betting bonus bets and promotions are below.
The second option is Arbitrage betting with Bitcoin, this is relatively new, however the arbitrage opportunities have been very profitable so far. There is a more detailed post about finding Bitcoin arbitrage betting opportunities here and access to the private facebook group here.
Can I sign up to a betting exchange in the USA to place a lay bet?
As of now there are no betting exchanges for sports betting, although we use exchanges in matched betting Australia and the UK to place our lay bets to cancel out the back bet this does not mean we can not do matched betting without it.
It just means we need to use an alternative to the exchanges to cover all outcomes and make sure we do not lose our initial deposit we made to unlock the sign-up bonus bet.
The solution is dutch betting.
This is a technique we can use to lay our bet without needing a betting exchange, to cover both outcomes of a match. This means we use two bookmakers against each other and place opposing back bets on each of them.
You just enter the odds of both teams into a dutch betting calculator like the one here and it will tell you how much you need to back on each team to make sure the bet balances out so that you don’t lose your initial deposit regardless of the outcome. Using this risk free way of backing both sides we unlock the bonus bet that we then make our profits from.
Is matched betting in the USA legal?
The new laws allow each state to decide to legalise online gambling for themselves or not. This means that any state offering online gambling can be used for batched betting.
Matched betting in itself is legal, the recipient of the promotion can do what they like with it. We are simply covering our bet on another bookmaker.
Where do I get started with matched betting in the USA?
Below are the ones that are the easiest and most user friendly for US customers to start with, they have good long standing reputations with bonus bets and ongoing arbitrage opportunities.
There are a good few sites that allow US users but always check the bonus T&Cs yourself obviously or jump on live chat after signing up and make sure that your account is verified and ready to go so you do not have any trouble withdrawing your earnings.
You can complete any offer by using the no risk matched betting guide, the technique in the 8 steps is the same except for the dutch betting technique mentioned above which we use to place our back/lay bets.
To get started you can get the bonus bets for the 2 leading bookmakers accepting US customers by signing up below and play them against each other to extract profit from their bonus bets.
As always if you have any questions just let me know at Dave@MatchedBettingOz.com.
