It’s Arsenal v Chelsea in the FA Cup Final on Saturday and Genting Bet are getting in on the action! Simply place a £10.00+ pre-match bet on Arsenal v Chelsea and Genting Bet will give us a free bet equal to the amount of goals scored in the game. Translated into matched betting terms, this gives us a potential profit of £3.58 and here’s how…

Qualifying Bet:

Outcomes:

Let’s have a look at our potential profit/loss for the possible outcomes…

Outcome Bookie Exchange Profit/Loss
Arsenal win +£24.00 -£24.42 £0.42 loss
Arsenal don't win -£10.00 +£9.57 £0.43 loss

So, regardless of the outcome, we’ll lose a maximum of £0.43 in qualifying for our potential free bet.

Free Bet:

We’ll receive a free bet equal to the amount of goals scored in the game, up to a maximum of £5.00. Free bets will be credited by 23:59 on Sunday 2nd August 2020 and will be valid for 3 days. Free bet stakes will not be included with any returns.

By using straightforward matched betting, we should be able to extract 80% cash from any free bet.

Therefore, if 5 goals are scored in the game, we’ll receive a £5.00 free bet, from which we can extract £4.00 cash. If we take into account our minimum qualifying loss of £0.42, this gives us a potential profit of £3.58 on this Genting Bet offer!

* Arsenal won the match 2-1, resulting in a profit of £1.98 on this Genting Bet offer. *
