888sport – Liverpool v Man City Offer

It’s Liverpool v Man City in the FA Community Shield on Saturday, and you don’t want to miss this 888sport offer! Place a £1.00+ Bet Builder on Liverpool v Man City, and if your bet loses, 888sport will refund your stake as a free bet up to £10.00. Translated into matched betting terms, this gives you a profit of £4.39 and here’s how…

Key terms

  • Applies to Bet Builder bets on Liverpool v Man City (17:00 on Saturday 30th July 2022).
  • Both pre-match and in-play bets will count.
  • Applies to your first bet only.
  • Minimum stake of £1.00.
  • Minimum odds of 3.00 (2/1).
  • 888sport will refund your stake as a free bet up to £10.00 if your bet loses.
  • The free bet will be valid for 7 days.
  • The free bet stake will not be returned with any winnings.

Qualifying bet

If your bet loses, your stake will be refunded as a free bet, so you can treat this as a ‘Money Back if Bet Loses‘ offer.

You’ll need to build a bet that you can lay at a betting exchange in one bet. Please see my ‘Bet Builders‘ guide for more information about them and possible selections.

At the time of writing, ‘Man City win (Result) / Over 2.5 (Total goals)‘ is available to back at odds of 3.40 (12/5).

You can lay ‘Man City/Over 2.5 Goals‘ in the ‘Match Odds and Over/Under 2.5 Goals‘ market at odds of 4.00.

If your qualifying bet is placed at odds of 5.00 (4/1) or greater and wins, 888sport will give you a £5.00 free bet, courtesy of their daily ‘4/1 Winner Offer’.

Either exchange works for this offer

Betfair and Smarkets are both great options for this offer. If you’ve not used one of them, now is a great time to give them a try.

  • 2% commission for all new signups
  • 0% commission for 60 days

You can work out your lay stake using the ‘Money Back if Bet Loses‘ setting on my Matched Betting Calculator. You can enter ‘£8.00‘ as your ‘Cashback’ figure as this is the amount you can expect to convert your £10.00 free bet into, should your bet lose.
