It’s Real Madrid v Man City in the Champions League on Wednesday night and you don’t want to miss this Bet365 ‘Bet £50, Get £50’ offer! Place a pre-match single bet on Real Madrid v Man City and Bet365 will give us a free bet equal to our largest pre-match bet, up to £50.00, to use in play. Translated into matched betting terms, this gives us a guaranteed profit of £34.80 and here’s how…

Key Terms:

  • This offer is invite only, available to customers who have received the promotional email, web message, text message, pop-up or mobile notification.
  • We must place our qualifying bet on Real Madrid v Man City before 20:00 (kick-off) on Wednesday 26th February 2020.
  • We’ll receive a free bet equal to our largest pre-match stake, up to a maximum of £50.00.
  • The free bet will only become available once the match has kicked off.

Qualifying Bet:

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

We should place our qualifying bet on either team to win as that will also qualify us for Bet365’s Early Payout promotion, where they’ll pay us out if our selected team goes two goals ahead, regardless of the final result.

Having looked at the odds available, we could place our qualifying bet on Man City in the Full Time Result market.

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

Betfair are currently offering new customers 0% commission up to £500 for the first 30 days.

We can calculate our lay stake using the ‘Qualifying Bet‘ setting on my matched betting calculator…

Place £50.00 on Man City @ 2.375 = Potential profit of £68.75

Lay £48.27 on Man City @ 2.48 = Potential liability of £71.43

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

OutcomeBookieExchangeProfit/Loss
Man City win+£68.75-£71.43£2.68 loss
Man City don't win-£50.00+£47.30£2.70 loss

So, regardless of the outcome, we’ll lose a maximum of £2.70 in qualifying for our £50.00 free bet.

Free Bet:

Our £50.00 free bet will only become available once the match starts and must be used in play. Free bet stakes are not included in any returns.

If you’re unsure how to extract cash from a free bet, please see my Free Bet Strategy page for a walk-through guide on how it should be done.

It’s impossible to know what odds will be available until the match has kicked off, but we should be aiming to extract around £37.50 cash (75%) from our £50.00 free bet.

I’ll use fictional odds for 2-1 Man City in the following example to give you an idea of how things should pan out.

2-1 Man City+£375.00-£337.39£37.61 profit

So, with some decent odds, we’ll extract around £37.50 cash from our £50.00 free bet.

If we take into account our maximum qualifying loss of £2.70, this gives us a guaranteed profit of £34.80 on this Bet365 offer!

* Man City won the match 2-1, resulting in a profit of £34.82 on this Bet365 offer. *

    How do you get the 50? I used to get 25, now I get 10? Has anyone had their free bet go up in value?

      My dads has gone up in value, he was down on £5, it’s just gone up to £10 and he think It’s because he’s stopped betting with them. I’ve managed to keep two accounts on £50, one on £25 and my own is on £10. So honestly I’ve no idea, maybe its based on credit checks?

    I have a similar question. I never got it. Even tried to play some casino to raise my sports betting reputation but it doesn’t seem to have worked. I am not a winner at bet365 either…

    I have only ever done the sign up offer with bet365, and never get these offers.

    From memory, I think that I won every bet that I placed from the sign up offers, so I guess that they think that they already gave me enough value from those?

    Perhaps I need to play some tactical losable mug bets to balance my account out with them? Any ideas?

      If you’re not receiving the offers, it might be worth placing some mug bets to see if it changes things.

      It’s best to place bets on matches that regular punters will be betting on, so you could start with the big televised games.
