How to make money with a BET365 free £50 Bet Offer

May 24th, 2014 No comments

Ever wanted a sure fire way of beating the bookies?

Well when Bet365 offer their Free In Play Bet Offers there is a way of taking money off the bookies.

They offer a “Risk Free Bet” to all account holders on big games to generate betting activity and if their track record is anything to go buy then I think there will be a few more during World Cup 2014.

So, How do you ensure that you make a profit on this?

A simple way would be to ensure that you have £100* in your bet365 account

(*£100 as £50 is the most you can bet and the other £50 is to cover the free bet, which will be refunded if it loses. You can use smaller amounts but why not take full advantage if you can afford to?)

You then need to have an account with another bookie where you can “lay” your bet365 bet.

So using the Real Madrid vs Atletico example with prices shown in the picture below:-


Atletico Madrid vs Real Madrid

Bet on Real to win with a £50 stake at 2.25 on bet 365 – return if wins £112.50

Bet on an Atletico win with the other bookmaker to cover the £50 stake plus the cost of this bet £19.00.

Odds of  3.8 x £19 would return the £72.20.

Use your free in play bet to stake £50 on the draw once the game has kicked off – this should still be around the same price but may drop or gain  a decimal point or two.  £50 at 3.30 odds = £165

So you have now covered the three options of Win, Lose or Draw.  It has cost you £119 / £69 (You will get £50 of this back if the free bet loses) .

If Real win you get £112.50 – a profit of £43.50

If Atletico win you get £72.20 – a profit of £3.20

If it’s a draw you get £165.00 a profit of £46.00 (as you won’t get your risk free free bet refunded as it’s won)

So worse case scenario you make a small profit, best case is £46.00 so worth doing.

N.B. It is best not to have any other bets on the game as Bet365 may select the wrong bet to pay out on (see terms and conditions below)


The game finished as a draw at full time so following the above options would have paid out a profit of £46.00
