Virgin Bet Sign Up Offer Guide

  • You get £20 in Free Bets
  • Make a profit of £10 to £15
  • Newbies need ~30 minutes

The Virgin ‘Games’ brand has been around for a while (and they have some great casino offers for us too), whilst Virgin Bet is relatively new but seem like they will be good for long-term matched betting profits (mainly via price boost offers).

HOT TIP: Based on the above we are recommending to deposit £15-£25 initially as it will likely help our chances of getting more personal offers in the future.

Sign Up to Virgin Bet

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

Again we recommend to deposit £15 to £25 if you can (it’s no problem if not though).

STEP 1: Finding your Qualifying Bet

i) Use the Oddsmatcher to find a bet quickly (minimum odds are 1.50)

To switch the odds to decimal you need to find the ‘Settings’ on the main menu. On mobile browser this is accessed via the ‘More’ tab on the bottom navigation menu.

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 search for odds between 1.50 and 2.80.


If you haven’t tried the Oddsmatcher yet you can try it here for just £1.

If you don’t have the Oddsmatcher yet either refer to our blog or find a bet manually.

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

Remember on Smarkets: #BLUE BOXES.

Choose a bet from the Oddsmatcher then check the odds are as expected at Virgin Bet 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 (minimum is £10 but we recommend do a £15 bet or more if you can to appear as a good customer from the start)
  2. Your back odds at the bookmaker (must be minimum of 1.50)
  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 lay bet at Smarkets using the lay stake from your calculator.

STEP 4: Profiting from your Free Bets

In order to claim your 2 x £10 free bet tokens, once your Qualifying Bet has settled, you must accept each of the free bet tokes on the ‘Promotions’ page or the ‘My Bets’ page. 

Although you can use them on the same game/race, we recommend to do them on different games/races if you can.

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.

We have created a table for you below to see what amount of liability you will need in Smarkets to obtain certain profits from each £10 free bet.


If you’ve decided not to try Oddsmonkey for  £1 now then you can manually search for bets to do or check our Matched Betting Blog for potential bets to do.

ii) Open the Profit Bet Calculator

Once you’ve found a bet to do enter your £10 free bet stake, with your back odds from Virgin Bet 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 bets in the bet slip

Remember to:

> select your free bet in your betslip at Virgin Bet

> place the free bet at Virgin Bet first, check it’s confirmed and then do your lay bet at Smarkets

Repeat the process using your second £10 free bet.


Congratulations on completing another matched betting offer.

That’s another £12-15 profit in the bag. Keep up the great work! 

If any of your bets won at Virgin Bet we recommend placing at least one fake mug bets (which are the same as qualifying bets) on popular sports if you can.
