Free Money for tonights match @ Bet365... can not lose

55
Found 30th Apr 2012
For those who have not seen this before, this is the format. Players must place a pre match bet prior to kick-off on Monday night,and once the game starts place another bet on any In-Play market. If their in play bet loses i.e Man City win, bet365 will refund this stake, up to the same value as their largest pre-match bet (max £50). This gives an ample opportunity to place a £50 win bet on Man City to win at 11/10. A £30 win on Man Utd at 5/2 (prices vary whatever bookmaker you use ) and once the game has started place the in play bet of £50 on the draw. By doing this you cannot lose so make sure you don’t forget.
If Man City win, the bet returns £105 less the £80 in bets for £25 profit
If Man Utd win, the bet returns £105. less the stake and the in play bet for £25 profit
If the in play draw bet wins at say 5/2 the bet returns £125 less the Man Utd stake and the Man City stake for £45 Profit.

all the cold votes for free money!!

looks intersting

Too much risk for me.

Will this bet be refunded as a free bet or actual money?

Cheers

Havnt voted but in betting circles this firm are known as bet £3.65 ie they wont lay
you a decent bet.

worth noting that you do not place a £50 free bet in play, but rather have to stake another £50 of your own money, which is refunded to your account if you lose the inplay bet.

as an alternative (and if you have the cash), place the original £50 on ManC, then lay them off on Betfair for around £65 (effectively betting on both the draw and ManU) then use the in play bet for something else entirely, e.g correct score, goalsccorer etc. net result zero loss if your 'free' bet fails, much better profit if it comes in

after looking through it you are betting £130 and still potenially … after looking through it you are betting £130 and still potenially getting a loss unless it is a draw so cold



I think you've missed the idea - if it's not a draw, you get given £50 back. I've taken part in these offers the past 3 or 4 times they've been on. You can always place money with this system so that you always make a profit.

Would section 6 of the Ts&Cs apply?

Where any term of the offer or promotion is breached or there is any evidence of a series of bets placed by a customer or group of customers, which due to a deposit bonus, enhanced payments, free bets or any other promotional offer results in guaranteed customer profits irrespective of the outcome, whether individually or as part of a group, bet365 reserves the right to reclaim the bonus element of such offers and in their absolute discretion either settle bets at the correct odds, void the free bets or void any bet funded by the deposit bonus. In addition bet365 reserve the right to levy an administration charge on the customer up to the value of the deposit bonus, free bet or additional payment to cover administrative costs. We further reserve the right to ask any customer to provide sufficient documentation for us to be satisfied in our absolute discretion as to the customer's identity prior to us crediting any bonus, free bet or offer to their account.

In the example above shouldnt you be refunded the inplay bet if united or city win?

Probably better getting better utd odds elsewhere.

I.e city win at above odds = 105 - 30 (utd bet). In play draw will be refunded.

It's not for everyone.

The Money Saving Expert site has a forum for more info on matched betting - forums.moneysavingexpert.com/sho…861. I think the best tip there is - Don't ever risk money that you cannot afford to lose, or ever deviate from the matched betting principles. If you have an uncontrollable gambling streak, or are under order not to do any betting, don't venture into this. Please visit Gamcare instead.

Place your Man City bet with another bookie. Bet365 can't then claim that you've covered all the angles.

The £50 refund that you get was your own money originally, so it's not profit.

Hmm, I'm mighty tempted. This is my working out, which is slightly different with putting £40 on United at a best price 11/4

£50 on Man City at 23/20
£50 in-play bet on Draw at 12/5
£40 on Man United at 11/4

Total Outlay - £140

If Man City win: Winnings of £57.50 (+£50 Refund) minus £40 United bet = £17.50 profit.
If Man United win: Winnings of £110 (+£50 Refund) minus £50 City bet = £60 profit
If it's a draw: Winnings of £120 minus £50 City bet and £40 United bet = £30 profit.

Does that sound right? My brain doesn't work properly on a Monday.

Agh I see now.

That's spot on. I've made myself an Excel spreadsheet where I can just whack the numbers in and have it calculate it for me, so I don't have to work the brain too much.

Cheers. I thought so, but thought I'd best double check. I don't trust myself too much on a Monday, as I don't usually wake up (recover from the weekend) until Tuesday!

Did u go with victor chandler too?

I did the draw as initial bet. Hoping the odds don't shorten too quick.
Edited by: "DLC" 30th Apr 2012

Yeah, BetVictor.

I've done the draw as the initial bet too, as I think that's the most likely result.

Presumably better to get the draw bet on quickly after kick off before the draw odds can alter.
Any thoughts on on what action to take as regard draw bet if an early goal alters the draw odds.

Is it me, or is the draw the WRONG bet to do as the initial bet, as you should be betting on City first, no?

Reason being, if bet draw at £50, and say £40 on United, then your in-play bet would be City at £50 too. So, you've spent £140. God forbid that City win (grrrr), then that only returns £105 @ 11/10, so your down, no? /: | Something tells me i might be being daft here, as you would have £105 in hand, and lost £90 on other 2 bets, so still £15 up, lol! That almost makes sense, but really you started with £140, lol! My next bit backs this up too i think.

If you bet City first though, and they do win, then would get £105, plus in-play bet back (£50), so really £165. If draw wins, then returns £170 (@ 12/5), so still up, and if United win, also get say £150 back with £40 @ 11/4, plus in-play £50, totalling £200.

Hopefully i'm wrong, and you guys ain't backed wrong thing first, but normally with these bets, it DOES matter how you bet, and even more so if a free stake bet, as you only get profit if it wins, not stake (i know this bet doesn't fall into that category though).

Either way, whether i'm right or wrong, i'm begrudgingly backing City first.


P.s. Come on you reds!

Edited by: "R0N4LD" 30th Apr 2012

You're right, RON4LD. Because if you bet the draw as your initial bet and City win, you'd have £105. Your £50 stake and £55 in profit. However you would have bet £90 on the other two bets - £50 on the draw, £40 on United. And you obviously wouldn't get your £50 in-play stake back because your in-play bet would have won, so you'd end up being down by £35 by my reckoning.

Thankfully I've not put it on yet - I went to do so but Bet365 is blocked at work, yet BetVictor and OddsChecker isn't. Try figuring that one out.

I did say my brain doesn't function too well on a Monday!

Cheers, RON4LD.

Someone post the three bets to make please, my brain doesn't work on any day of the week.

£50 on Man City @ 11/10 with bet365
£28 on Man Utd @ 11/4 with vic chandler
Then once the match begins £50 on the draw (currently 12/5) with bet 365.
Either Man City/Man Utd victory = profit of £27
Draw (if odds 12/5) = profit of £42

Just tried to open an account at Bet365. Whilst trying to lodge a deposit i saw this "Please note you will need to play through your deposit and bonus three times prior to making a withdrawal"

Is this only applicable if you take advantage of their 100% deposit bonus upon opening account?

Yep that's correct.

Also it's much better to go for a draw for the inplay bet, because if there is an early goal, the draw odds with shoot up, and will be even better for you.

Should I place the inplay bet as soon as the match starts, or should I wait for a certain amount of time?

I'm not sure if it's best, but I do it anyway. I like to get it over and done with. Too scared that I'll have a power cut or something stupid like that!

You might want to wait for a goal to go in first and then place it.... But if there is no goal, you are kinda screwed.

Ladbrokes better odds for the draw

City are evens now.

I've deposited £50 on City to win on Bet365. I've no funds left in my account. Will I need to deposit another £50 to get the free in-play bet?

Apologies in advance if this is a stupid question.

Yes, you need to add another 50 to bet in-play to qualify for it
