Jo Uses Team Casino To Top Up Her Household Income And Spend More Time With Her Kids
Date Of Interview
9th January 2022
What’s your name and where are you from?
Jo from Leeds
Please can you tell us a bit about yourself?
I have been with my husband of 16 years since 1992 and we have 3 boys aged 10, 9 & 7. I had my kids late. Before then I was an Ops Manager in a regional stockbrokers.
I made a lot of money when I sold off my shares portfolio back in 2012. For years it supplemented my husband's income without the need to go back to work, as I really wanted to home educate and stay home with my boys. I have done a lot of charity work and fund raising too over the years which is how we adopted our Cretan street dog Patches.
How long have you been a member of Team Casino?
I have been with Team Casino since August 2019.
Did you do matched betting before deciding to do casino offers?
I had been matched betting since October 2018. As much as I enjoyed the guaranteed income it generated, I was looking for more than a couple of hundred pounds a month, because I wasn’t interested in the more complex match betting. I preferred the bet and get side of it and that wasn’t making me much money.
I initially turned down the trial of Team Casino in June 2019, when it first launched, but by August it was just too tempting!
What made you interested in starting casino offers? Were you nervous at first?
I must be honest. I love the thrill of the slots 😂. I like to take risks and I knew this would give me the platform to do it, but by following a strategy so I wasn’t losing more than I could afford (and would hopefully make money). I was really nervous at first. I had done a little bit while match betting but not at the level of a Team Casino subscription.
What was your starting bankroll?
Whatever was in the bank 😬. A few hundred I guess. I was still MB up to a few months ago so that helped cushion any downswings (and there have been a few!)
How easy or difficult did you find it to learn about casino offers?
Fairly straightforward. The offers pages are fab. The Reload Offers Dashboard is the first thing I check when I wake up and the last thing I check at night.
The Facebook group makes it much easier too. It is a great community to be part of. So many of us who started back in the summer of 2019 are still knocking around now, which is very encouraging!
How much EV and profit have you made from casino offers so far?
My graph shows the following:
- Total EV: £9,643.7
- Total Profit: £11,863.07
But this is not a true reflection of my overall EV and profit. I didn’t start tracking until January 2020 and I didn’t track the daily free offers for months. So my total profit will be higher.
Have you bought anything nice or used your profits on anything in particular? Or are you saving up for something special?
My profit has largely been spent on holiday spending money, treats for my boys and as a part-time income.
Have you had many big wins, or has it been small wins adding up?
I had an amazing win back in August 2020 on God Of Storms. I remember screeching at the top of my voice at 1am in the morning as I hit the jackpot on a 25p spin. My husband and children genuinely thought someone had died 🤣.
I was walking on air for days. It paid for our holiday that year and helped with Christmas.
Did you find it hard to overcome downswings, or have you always trusted the process?
Downswings are tough. The first minus month for me this last year was July. I finished -275 and I was gutted. Before then I had had some other lean months but matched betting had helped with the knocks. I do however trust the process completely. The more offers you do, the profit will come!
I had a blazing December, making £1100 profit. But I am so far having a really tough January. I made the silly decision to do a couple of high risk offers and lost £530. I wanted to cry but I have just kept going. Fingers crossed 🤞 my month turns around and there is time 🙂
Do you have any tips for making the transition from welcome offers to reload offers?
It can be scary. It felt a bit daunting and I was a bit lost at first. But I had done a lot of the welcome offers during my time matched betting, so I moved to reloads quite swiftly. I think following the guidelines and getting yourself into a good routine helps and the reloads page has all of the info you need.
How much time do you think you spend doing casino offers each week? When do you tend to do most of your offers?
It depends. I work around my boys and they know I ‘work’ from home, so it can definitely be a few hours a day.
Do you still do sports offers alongside casino offers?
Occasionally, but I find I don’t have the time to scramble around for the offers (I am not a member of Profit Accumulator). So unless I get the odd email offer, I leave sports offers alone. Besides there is too much EV to be had in Team Casino!
What would you say to people who think casino offers are just gambling?
Some people will never believe otherwise! My mum still believes it is gambling and I do it for a ‘bit of fun’ but this seriously generates my income.
It keeps me at home and the figures speak for themselves. I have not lost a penny and I have made thousands without ‘gambling’.
What advice would you give to someone first starting casino offers?
Follow the guides, ask for help if you are not sure and never wager more than you have to!
Also do not get hung up on ‘big wins’. Some people will never have big wins but the profit over time is still there if you are happy to plod along.
Also do not risk doing larger spin sizes if you are not comfortable. I have only just started to increase my spin size to save time on larger wagers but I have also been known to wager £100 with 10p spins in the early days 😂.
