If you haven’t already, sign up to Smarkets first using our button below.
Next, follow the link below to get the correct offer from ToteSport
You will need to deposit £35 into Totesport when registering. This is to cover the £25 qualifying bet to unlock the free bet, and the risk free £10 Tote bet (and to look like a good customer).
To change the odds on ToteSport to decimal format, in the ‘Useful Links’ menu go to ‘Settings’, then ‘Odds Type’.
To help you find the best Qualifying Bet, and to find it quickly, we recommend to use your Oddsmonkey Oddsmatcher tool. Remember to set the filter to select bets between the odds of 2.0 and 2.80.
Remember on Smarkets: #BLUE BOXES.
Choose a bet from the Oddsmatcher then check the odds are as expected at ToteSport and Smarkets. (If not hit ‘Refresh’ on the Oddsmatcher to update the list of available bets).
You will now need to enter:
The calculator then works out your lay stake amount, which you will use for your against bet at Smarkets.
(As this is a £25 bet here we would accept a Qualifying Loss of up to a maximum £1.50)
> 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.
Place your bet at ToteSport first and check it’s confirmed.
Place your lay bet at Smarkets using the lay stake from your calculator.
Your £25 free bet (which is valid for 7 days) will be credited within 24 hours of your qualifying bet settling. You may also be asked for SMS validation before placing your free bet.
We have created a table for you below to see what amount of liability you will need in Smarkets to obtain certain profits from the £25 free bet.
Once you’ve found a bet to do enter your £25 free bet stake, with your back odds from ToteSport and lay odds from Smarkets
Remember to do your important checks (Smarkets balance > liability; Smarkets liquidity > lay stake) before placing your free bet.
> select your free bet in your betslip at ToteSport
> place the free bet at ToteSport first, check it’s gone through and then do your lay bet at Smarkets
Once the free bet settles…
A big well done, that will be another £18 in risk free profit!
How to use the £10 risk-free Totepool Bet?
You still have a risk free £10 bet to use in the Totepool section of the Totesport website.
This £10 gets refunded whether the horse you choose wins or loses. (i.e. you will either make a profit or lose nothing).
This Totepool bet can NOT be layed off at an exchange, so we recommend just selecting a horse you like the sound of and hope for a nice win.
If the horse loses, your £10 cashback will be returned the next day, regardless of the outcome.
You are doing really well! We’ve got loads more profits still to make as well :)
Let’s keep going!
(Not forgetting to track your profits in your spreadsheet or Oddsmonkey Profit Tracker).
