Boost your income; gain more financial freedom; do the things you want
William Hill are one of the biggest bookmakers in the UK. With that, they also offer a fantastic sign up offer for new customers, which is perfect for matched bettors like us.
If you haven’t already the first thing you need to do is get a Smarkets Exchange account. Follow our button below to be taken to Smarkets. Register and deposit at least £20 to receive their £10 risk-free bonus offer.
#WDPHotTip Before you register, here’s a reminder as to why it’s good to deposit and bet more than the minimum required at William Hill. £100 in free bets translates to at least £75 guaranteed profit in matched betting!

Need help? Don’t forget, if you need help at anytime you can:
For this first qualifying bet, we recommend selecting a team to bet on at William Hill with odds between 1.51 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, William Hill will not then grant you your free bets.
Ideally you need a maximum 10% (or around 0.2) increment between the back odds at William Hill and the lay odds at Smarkets.
For example, if the team you select at William Hill have odds of 2.3, your Smarkets lay odds should not be higher than 2.5. This is to minimise your qualifying loss.
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. In our example here it is £27.06. 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 lay stake amount (the liquidity is the number in £ that is under your lay odds in the blue box) . Ideally your liquidity should be at least double your lay stake amount.
IMPORTANT: Remember to not use any odds boosts offered in your betslip by William Hill for this first bet. They may not give you the free bets if you do use it.
The matched betting rule is to always put your bookmaker bet through first. So place your bet at William Hill.
As soon as your bet at William Hill 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, just click on your lay odds in the blue box, write the lay stake amount in on your betslip, then click Sell and Confirm Bet.
Your 2 x £15 free bets are normally credited as soon as you’ve placed your Qualifying Bet. They will appear in your betslip. They are valid for 30 days.
We now have to repeat the same process to do our Profit (Free) Bets that we used to do our Qualifying Bet – but with a few small changes…
We recommend doing each of the two £15 free bets separately on two different teams (from different games) if you can.
We need to find bets with higher odds in order to extract a larger profit from each of 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 £15 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.
Enter your free bet stake, with your back odds from William Hill and lay odds from Smarkets.
The calculator will work out the lay stake amount you need to use at Smarkets to make your profit. Here’s an example of what your calculator will look like:
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 (numbers in £ under odds in blue box) is greater than your stake amount
HOT TIP: It’s good practice to double check everything before in your betslips before placing your bets.
Once the free bet is confirmed at William Hill, 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 £15 free bet.
That’s another bookmaker down, and you should have made £15+ profit from these William Hill free bets – and you’re still just getting started!
#WDPHotTip – Fake Mug Bets & Checking your Email!
If any of your bets win at William Hill, consider making a few fake mug bets before withdrawing your cash. For these fake mug bets you can use any odds boosts offered by Hills. Each fake mug bet will “cost” you around 40-80p, but they are a really great way to increase your chances of receiving private email promotions from them to make even more profit going forward…
