STEP 1: Finding your Qualifying Bet

Scroll down to near the bottom of the page to switch the odds format to decimal.

ii) Choose a popular league or cup

Examples include the Premier League, La Liga, Champions League, Euro 2020 etc.

To make life simpler for you we often provide lists of good Qualifying Bets to do in our Potential Bet Selections blog

iii) Be sure to select a Qualifying Bet with minimum odds of 1.50

For this first qualifying bet, we recommend selecting a team to bet on at 888 Sport with odds between 1.50 and 2.80. This is to keep your liability (balance needed in Betfair) low.

For clarity, if you select a team with odds of 1.40 (which is below the minimum odds), and place this bet, 888 Sport will not then grant you your free bets. 

iv) Check the Betfair Exchange lay odds and choose the team which have the closest lay odds to the odds at 888 Sport

(If you don’t have Betfair Exchange yet you can sign up here to get a £20 risk-free bet)

Ideally you need a maximum 0.2 increment between the back odds at 888 Sport and the lay odds at Betfair.

For example, ff the team you select at 888 Sport has odds of 1.90, your Betfair lay odds should not be higher than 2.10. This is to minimise your qualifying loss.

STEP 2: Calculate the Lay Bet Amount

Using the Qualifying Bet Calculator

#WDPHotTip on Qualifying Bets

Remember our tip from the Sky Bet Offer – for welcome offer Qualifying Bets try to bet more than the minimum amount required. Here we recommend to bet at least £20.

You will now need to enter:

  1. Your stake amount at 888 Sport (minimum is £10 but we recommend to do £20)
  2. Your back odds at 888 Sport (ours are 1.73 for this example)
  3. The pink box lay odds from Betfair (ours are 1.79 for this example)
888Sport-Qualifying-Bet-Matched-Betting-Calculator-Example1

The calculator then works out your lay stake amount.

This is the amount you will use at Betfair for your against bet.

IMPORTANT CHECKS

> At this point you must always check the liability amount on your calculator. In our example here it is £15.71. Your balance in Betfair must be the same or larger than the liability amount. If your Betfair balance is less than the liability, you can not do your Qualifying bet until you top up your Betfair balance first.

> It’s also a good idea to check the liquidity available in Betfair is greater than your lay stake amount (the liquidity is the number in £ that is under your lay odds in the pink box) . Ideally your liquidity should be at least double your lay stake amount.

STEP 3: Placing your bets

The matched betting rule is to always put your bookmaker bet through first. So place your back bet at 888 Sport. 

As soon as your bet has been placed and confirmed, you must now use your lay stake (as shown in your calculator) to place your against bet at Betfair.

At Betfair, click on the lay odds in the correct pink box, write the lay stake amount in, then click Place Bet and Confirm Bet.

STEP 4: Profiting from your Free Bets

Your 3 x £10 free bets will be credited shortly after your qualifying bet settles. These free bets have a 7 day expiry. One £10 free bet must be done via your mobile phone (note – it will only appear on mobile).

i) Choose a bet to do with higher odds to make a larger profit

We need to find bets with higher odds in order to extract a larger profit from the free bets.

We have created a table for you below to see what amount of liability you will need in Betfair to obtain a certain profit from each of the 3 x £10 free bets.

888Sport-Profit-Free-Bet-Matched-Betting-Calculator-Example1

IMPORTANT CHECKS

Before placing your free bet, remember to do your two important checks: 

Betfair balance is greater than the liability in the calculator

Liquidity at Betfair (numbers in £ in pink lay odds box) is greater than your lay stake amount

iii) Select to use your free bets in the bet slip

As you know, you will make your profit using the free bets provided by 888 Sport, so don’t forget to select to use the Free Bet in your bet slip at 888 Sport.

HOT TIP: It’s good practice to double check everything before placing your bets. 

Once the free bet is confirmed at 888 Sport, then you can lay the bet off at Betfair using the lay stake worked out by your Profit Bet Calculator.

Now all you have to do is repeat the process with your remaining two £10 free bets. Don’t forget one of the free bets will only be available on mobile.

Congratulations-on-completing-this-offer

That will be another £18+ profit! Nice one!

Your matched betting bank will be growing quite nicely after completing these offers.

Remember, the bigger your matched betting bank, the easier it is to make more profits quickly. This is because we can use our free bets on higher odds, and because we don’t have to spend as much time doing withdrawals and moving our profits around between the bookmakers, our bank and the exchange.

If any of your bets won at 888 Sport, we recommend placing one or two £10-£20 fake mug bets (which are the same as qualifying bets) on popular sports before withdrawing, to seem like a good “punter”.

Track your profits in your spreadsheet then let’s get cracking with some more offers.
