Customers have three months to meet staking requirements.
Bet365 In-Play Bet
bet365 offers a risk free in-play bet for existing customers of up to £50 on a selected number of key matches in the English Premier League and Champions League that are televised live on terrestrial channels or dedicated sports channels. They take out full page adverts in the sports betting section at the back of the Racing Post. High profile matches are always selected for in play, which are popular for betting and attract the highest audiences for live soccer matches. English teams in the Champions League and the most popular teams in the Premier League feature. Customers must place a pre-match bet on the relevant fixture to qualify for the free in-play bet.
bet365 make this offer about once every two weeks and email customers ahead of the fixture with details of the offer. Careful matching of bets can guarantee a profit and about £35 can be made each time regardless of the outcome of matches. That is not a huge amount and won’t change anybody’s life but is not a bad little return for about five minutes work. Customers can win this amount without watching the selected match but need access to the website at a particular point in the coverage.
Bet365 must be aware that customers can manipulate their betting on these matches to ensure a modest profit. Services now issue guides on backing and laying in theses matches to guarantee a profit. The offer is valid for all customers so presumably one of the objectives is to encourage customers to use lapsed accounts. Existing funds can be used to take advantage of this offer and specific deposits are not required. However, the offer encourages customers to start gambling again so their account becomes active which is good for business and affiliates.
However, customers are closely monitored and if they are identified as not playing for recreation but to take advantage of matched bet loopholes accounts can be restricted. Any one offer is valid once for a customer and multiple accounts will be closed. The level of abuse is unclear but bet365 continue with this offer so it must make sound business sense. It is a loss leader because it can prompt customers who are not regular bettors to deposit funds and place bets. These players may be then attracted to the more profitable products such as bingo, poker and casino games. There should be some good in-play offers during Euro 2016, especially as three British teams and the Republic of Ireland have qualified.
How do I place a bet with Bet365?
Placing your first bet is very straight forward - What Bet365 offer through their online sportsbook is very complimentary to the deposit bonus, but they are also able to bring something relatively new called “In-Play” betting. This new feature will allow you to enhance your experience with them and do the following things:
• First of all you get the chance to place live bets – this way even if the game has started; you are still able to place bets, depending on the performances of the teams so far.
• Get off your bets during a game – in case you have placed some bets and the team has shown nothing so far, you can get off a bet during the game.
• Watch it Live service – that offers you the chance watch the game via bet365 live streaming.
One of the striking things that you will notice initially is the fact that everything is extremely simple, including the design and the site navigation. A great feature is the Bet Slip being always clearly visible in the top right of the screen.
This is probably one of the things that have managed to push this online sportsbook forward. They have a betting platform which seems to be able to satisfy both the recreational and the professional sorts of bettors.
They have a solid financial background since they are one of the largest bookmakers in the UK and indeed the world. In addition to the classic sports betting you can also find:
- Live bets (called in-play on their website)
- Skill games
- Online bingo hall.
Horse racing is also a big feature of Bet365's sports book and they also have some great offers on racing televised live on Channel 4. For every race shown live on TV, they will offer a Price Promise with their horse racing odds, guaranteeing the best odds or matching a host of other big name bookies on any bets placed prior to 10am. As well as offering the best odds, they will also give you a risk free bet when you back any winner at odds of 4/1 or more.
The Channel 4/1 Offer ensures you will be rewarded with a risk free bet when backing a channel 4 winner at 4/1 or more.
For further details and terms and conditions of all of these promotions, please visit the Bet365 website.
bet365 really do have so many offers for both new customers and existing ones that you can find something for just about any sport but almost certainly in the higher profile ones where their featured promotions take centre stage. These are the big ones to keep an eye on if you are not only a regular punter but also a diverse one.
Guide to Risk Free Winnings with Bet365
Here is a step by step guide to take advantage of the bet365 in-play offer and win a maximum of about £35 regardless of the outcome of the match and the success of the qualifying bet:
- Place a pre-match bet of up to £50 at odds of about evens on the selected fixture
- This is the qualifying bet for the free in-play bet
- Place a matching lay bet for slightly less than £50 with an exchange bookmaker
- The difference in the stake takes into account the exchange commission
- During the match use the free in-play bet when a market is settled
- The best time to place the bet is at half time when there are no price fluctuations due to a significant events such as a goal, sending-off or penalty
- Place an equivalent adjusted lay bet with an exchange bookmaker.
If the in-play bet loses the stake is returned and if the in-play bet wins the stake is covered by the equivalent lay bet. This is a straight cash refund and not paid in the form of a free bet. Funds can be immediately withdrawn or used to place more bets.
Generally this is a genuine free bet offer that requires very little in the way of time or thought. The procedure can be replicated each time bet365 makes the offer and the leagues and fixtures are irrelevant. The basic rules must be followed correctly and accurately but the procedures are simple and not time consuming. Careful matching of bets brings a nice little £35 boost to betting funds after each selected match.
There are no significant drawbacks to this offer and bet365 are not trying to catch out their customers. However, a few points should be kept in mind to ensure the free bet is used correctly. Customers must have access to an exchange with good liquidity and negate the risk of a goal being scored during the betting procedure so half time is the best point to place both in-play bets. Bets that are cashed out won’t count and the qualifying bet must be placed before the match starts. Counter bets with bet365 are not valid so backing both teams to score pre-match and then not to score at favourable odds after the match begins is not allowed. However, careful matching and timing of bets makes this offer safe and fair

History of Bet365?
Bet365 is currently the 7th largest private company in the UK, even if they are only employing just over 1,700 people. And it’s no wonder that this is happening since they are currently available in more than 200 countries and they serve 6 million bettors. Bet365 has come a long way from it’s humble beginnings in Stoke-on-Trent to its present status as one of the most important players in the online sports betting market worldwide. This is why you will see the Stoke City Football Club emblazend with the bet365 logo as the main sponsors of the club.
They have been around for a very long period of time, with the first sports betting shop opening back in 1974. The online bookmaker was launched back in 1998, a moment in history where online gambling and betting was just beginning to rise. They are able to stand out from the crowd due to the fact they can deliver both quality and trust at the same time.
The online sports betting and financial betting is licensed and regulated by the UK Gambling Commission, but the other ventures are regulated and licensed by the Government of Gibraltar. There are no longer any bet365 free bets due to the terminology of the offer needing to be more correctly represented around the world.
