It’s Barcelona v Real Madrid on Wednesday night and Genting Bet are getting in on the action! Simply place a £10.00+ pre-match bet on Barcelona v Real Madrid 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…

Key Terms:

  • The minimum stake to qualify is £10.00.
  • We must place our bet at odds of 1.50 (1/2) or greater.
  • Qualifying bets must be placed between 00:00 on Tuesday 17th December 2019 and 19:00 (kick-off) on Wednesday 18th December 2019.
  • Maximum free bet of £5.00.

Qualifying Bet:

If you’re unfamiliar with qualifying bets, please see my Qualifying Bet Strategy page for a walk-through guide on how they should be done.

It’s entirely up to you what you place your qualifying bet on. Having looked at the odds available, we could place our qualifying bet on Barcelona in the Match Result market.

At the time of writing, laying our bet at Smarkets gives us the smallest qualifying loss.

We can calculate our lay stakes using my matched betting calculator…

Place £10.00 on Barcelona @ 1.75 = Potential profit of £7.50

Lay £9.78 on Barcelona @ 1.81 = Potential liability of £7.92

Outcomes:

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

OutcomeBookieExchangeProfit/Loss
Barcelona win+£7.50-£7.92£0.42 loss
Barcelona don't win-£10.00+£9.58£0.42 loss

So, regardless of the outcome, we’ll lose £0.42 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 Thursday 19th December 2019 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 qualifying loss of £0.42, this gives us a potential profit of £3.58 on this Genting Bet offer!

* The match was drawn 0-0, resulting in a loss of £0.42 on this Genting Bet offer. *
