Sign Up to Fun88

If you haven’t already, sign up to Smarkets first here. Next, follow the link below to get the correct offer from Fun88.

Remember to opt-in to receive promotions during registration otherwise you may not receive your free bet token.

We recommend to deposit at least £30 – and £60+ if you are able and want to work quickly through the Qualifying Bets.


The maximum free bet token is £28. Fun88 state that Qualifying “bets of more than £28 will be treated as £28 when it comes to calculating your Bonus token”. Normal punters are likely to bet £30 as £28 is a bit of a strange number so we recommend to do 6 x £30 Qualifying Bets instead of 6 x £28 Qualifying Bets if you can. 

STEP 1: Finding your Qualifying Bet

i) Swith to decimal odds and use the Oddsmonkey Oddsmatcher to find a bet quickly with minimum odds of 2.0

You can change the odds format in the secondary navigation bar. To help you find the best Qualifying Bet, and to find it quickly, we recommend to use your Oddsmonkey Oddsmatcher tool.

Set the Oddsmatcher to select bets on Fun88 between the odds of 2.0 and 3.0.

Remember Qualifying Bets can’t be done on horse racing.

ii) Select a Qualifying Bet and check the odds at Fu88 and Smarkets

Remember on Smarkets: #BLUE BOXES.

Choose a bet from the Oddsmatcher then check the odds are as expected at Fun88 and Smarkets. (If not hit ‘Refresh’ on the Oddsmatcher to update the list of available bets). 

STEP 2: Calculate the Lay Bet Amount

Using the Qualifying Bet Calculator

You will now need to enter:

  1. Your stake amount at the bookmaker (must be minimum of £28 if you want to get the full £28 bonus token. We recommend to do £30 though.)
  2. Your back odds at the bookmaker (must be minimum of 2.00)
  3. The blue box lay odds from Smarkets

The calculator then works out your lay stake amount, which you will use for your against bet at Smarkets.


> Check your Smarkets balance is greater than your calculator liability.

> Reduce the chance of partially-matched bets or un-matched bets by making sure the liquidity (amount under blue lay box) is larger than your lay stake amount.

STEP 3: Placing your bets

Place your bet at Fun88 first and check it’s confirmed.

Place your lay bet at Smarkets using the lay stake from your calculator.

STEP 4: Repeat 5 more times

You now need to do 5 more £28 (or £30 as we recommend) Qualifying Bets.

Remember all must be at odds of 2.0 or more and each bet must be done on a different game/event.

STEP 5: Profiting from your Free Bet

If you have completed the 6 x £28 (or 6 x £30) Qualifying Bets the £28 free bet token may be automatically released into your account once the last Qualifying Bet has settled. You may need to contact customer service though to receive your bonus token (as stated in their terms).

IMPORTANT! The free bet has a 5 days expiry and again cannot be done on horse racing.

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

We need to use our Oddsmonkey Oddsmatcher now to find bets with higher odds (ideally 4.0 or more) so that we can extract a good profit.

ii) Open the Profit Bet Calculator

Once you’ve found a bet to do enter your £28 free bet stake, with your back odds from Fun88 and lay odds from Smarkets


Remember to do your important checks (Smarkets balance > liability; Smarkets liquidity > lay stake) before placing your free bet. 

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

Remember to:

> select your free bet in your betslip at Fun88

> place the free bet at Fun88 first and then do your lay bet at Smarkets using the lay stake from your calculator.


Hopefully you made some more good profits from that offer.
