    no wouldnt have done it if it did do not bet my money on anything, not lucky, as you can see:)

    bit of a joke really - so, in other words, they got your mobile number for free (or the price of two texts)
    marketing ploy sounds like

    You should have guessed the score rather than a simple england win, you were never going to get alot.

    yes I know, I fell for it, silly me:oops:

    lol thats how pretty much all free bets work
    (apart from the post office)

    Returns are never inclusive of the stake, so you kinda have to put it on something high in price in order to gain anything.
    Would have told you with the original marketing that gave you the free bet.

    This mob are outrageous, their odds are 20% below other firms, As for free bets yes you must pay them back but even when you have won several times they still claim the money is theirs and will not let you withdraw the last five pounds. I used the free bet for the grand national had the winner placed several other bets that won to a total of £48, free bet £5 I should have got £43 they would only let me take out £38 and they still text me to use my free bet at times???

    Stick your pound winnings on Robbie Keane to score first tonight
