Matched betting is a risk-free way of making money from home using bookmakers’ special offers.

It took me just under 12 weeks from placing my very first bet to reaching the £1,000 mark.

Raffler app review

Raffler: £1,000 up for grabs every day!

Free money!

Wouldn’t that be nice?

I’ve just found an app called Raffler, which gives away at least £1,000 every day.

Not Raffler! The prize money comes from advertising. All you have to do is watch two short adverts to get an entry into their daily prize draw.

How does it work?

The app is available from the App Store and Google Play.Want to be in with a chance of winning £1000, every day? Of course you do!

Click through to get my referral code to increase your jackpot by an extra £100.

It’s quick and easy to sign up. All you need is your name and email …
