Should I open bookmakers' accounts before I join Arb Hunters?
It would be useful to have opened all your accounts first. This way you're ready to place your first bet as soon as you've subscribed. See our bookmakers page for a convenient list of links to bookmakers' sites that we use.
However, there is one advantage to waiting until you need to place a bet before you open your bookmakers' accounts. Many bookmakers offer deposit or first bet bonuses. If you make a deposit or place a bet at the same time as opening your account you will be eligible for these bonuses. This can generate extra cash or free bets and so it's sometimes worth waiting and taking advantage of these offers.
