Around The World in 20 Bets Challenge

Using our trusty pocket calculator, we’ve worked out that, starting with £2, it only takes 20 bets at average odds of 2/5 (1.4) to win the £1,500 (and a bit of spending money) it costs for a round-the-world plane ticket. Hence, Around The World in 20 Bets.

2/5 shots win all the time. They’re banker bets. How hard can it be? Well we’ll soon find out. We’re offering you the chance to win a round-the-world ticket, or equivalent in cash, by taking a mythical £2 and turning into a flight around the world.


How it works: 

1. We give you a mythical £2.

2. You place a series (20) of bets, using your full balance on each bet, by Tweeting your selections to us @FREEbets_org_uk and including the hash tag #AroundTheWorldIn20Bets

3. We document your progress on this page (above).

4. If you back 20 consecutive winners we give you £1,500 (the cost of a round-the-world flight).

5. If you back a loser at any point before your 20th bet then it’s game over, sorry, the baton is passed on to the next challenger.


Example entry Tweet:

“@FREEbets_org_uk Bet number 1: Over 3.5 sets in Murray v Federer at odds of 2/5 with Bet365 #AroundTheWorldIn20Bets”
