Scroll down to near the bottom of the page to switch the odds format to decimal.
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 Smarkets) 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.
HOT TIP: Remember the lay odds at Smarkets are in the BLUE BOXES.
Ideally you need a maximum 0.2 increment between the back odds at 888 Sport and the lay odds at Smarkets.
For example, ff the team you select at 888 Sport has odds of 1.90, your Smarkets lay odds should not be higher than 2.10. This is to minimise your qualifying loss.
HOT TIP: £10 is the minimum stake needed to unlock the £30 free bets at 888 Sport. To appear as a good customer and increase your chances of unlocking more offers in the future you can bet £20 or more instead. We do this in the example below.
You will now need to enter:
The calculator then works out your lay stake amount.
This is the amount you will use at Smarkets for your against bet.
> At this point you must always check the liability amount on your calculator. Your balance in Smarkets must be the same or larger than the liability amount. If your Smarkets balance is less than the liability, you can not do your Qualifying bet until you top up your Smarkets balance first.
> It’s also a good idea to check the liquidity available in Smarkets is greater than your stake amount (the liquidity is the small silver numbers in £ that are under your lay odds blue box) . Ideally your liquidity should be at least double your lay stake amount.
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 Smarkets.
At Smarkets, click on the lay odds in the correct blue box, write the lay stake amount in, then click Place Bet and Confirm Bet.
Your 3 x £10 free bets will be credited shortly after your qualifying bet settles. These free bets have a 7 day expiry. One free bet must be done via your mobile phone (note – it will only appear on mobile).
To make your profit, we use the same process we used to find our qualifying bet, with a few slight differences:
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 Smarkets to obtain a certain profit from each of the 3 x £10 free bets.
To help you out, we also talk about the best matches to place your free bets on in our weekly Potential Bet Selections Blog.
Once you’ve found a bet to do enter your £10 free bet stake, with your back odds from 888 Sport and your lay odds from Smarkets
Before placing your free bet, remember to do your two important checks:
Smarkets balance is greater than the liability in the calculator
Liquidity at Smarkets (silver numbers in £ under blue lay odds box) is greater than your lay stake amount
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 Smarkets 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.
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 Smarkets.
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.
