Are you a matched bettor that is currently travelling but still want to earn risk free profits on the road?
I’ve recently had to leave the UK to renew my visa so I’m currently residing in NZ, whilst I go through the quite labourious and expensive process.
During this time I’ve been addament I was going to keep the matched betting going. It’s a easy way to earn money and just because I’m out of the UK isn’t going to stop me from doing it.
The only problem is, most UK betting sites block anyone trying to access thier sites from outside the UK. I had to think of a way to get around this, and the answer is to use a VPN or Virtual Private Network.
A VPN service is a network connection that enables anyone to create a secure connection over the public internet or private networks at a remote location.
Using a VPN gives a matched bettor the ability to connect to a network based in the UK (for example) which essentially ticks the website about the location of your computer.
But that’s not all a VPN can do, below are the top 3 uses for using a VPN:
1. Hide your IP address and location
You can use a VPN to hide your IP and location. Many VPN providers allow you to connect to many locations. ExpressVPN (the service I use) gives you the option of over 94 countries including the US, UK and Australia.
2. Encrypt your communications
VPNS often use high strength 256-bit encryption to protect your data from prying eyes and hackers. This gives you the peace of mind that you can browse freely from WI-FI hotspots with the comfort of knowing you can’t be tracked or monitored.
3. Watch your favorite content
Don’t you hate it when you can’t watch the latest Netflix title or sports event because of country restrictions? Well a VPN can allow you to connect to any country unblocking all that restricted content.
For us matched bettors though making money is the number one priority so how can we utilise a VPN for this purpose?
Setting Up A VPN in 90 Seconds or Less
Fortunately it is really simple to setup a VPN these days and no technical knowledge is required. I use a serive called Express VPN as recommended by Techradar. These guys have a wide range of VPN apps available for Mac, PC, iPhone, Android and even blackberry. Offer 145 locations across 94 countries with an ultra fast service and event have a 30 day money back gaurantee.
1. Download and install ExpressVPN here
2. Once installed choose location you wish to connect to (in my case its United Kingdom
3. Once selected simply press the on button and you’re connected!
ExpressVPN must be one of the simplest services I’ve used and I’ve used a few. The fact that you don’t have to pay extra for mobile devices is also a bonus!
