It’s Sevilla v Inter Milan in the Europa League Final on Friday night and you don’t want to miss this Virgin Bet free bet offer! Simply place a £20.00 pre-match bet on Sevilla v Inter Milan and Virgin Bet will give us a £10.00 free bet to use once the match gets underway. Translated into matched betting terms, this gives us a guaranteed profit of £6.59 and here’s how…

Key Terms:

  • We must place 1 x £20.00+ cash bet.
  • Qualifying bet must be placed on Sevilla v Inter Milan between 00:00 and 20:00 (kick-off) on Friday 21st August 2020.
  • Minimum odds of 1.80 (4/5).
  • We must accept and use our free bet before 22:00 on Friday 21st August 2020.

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 Inter Milan in the FT 1X2 market.

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

If you’re not yet signed up, Smarkets are currently offering a £10.00 welcome bonus for new customers.

Lay £18.97 on Inter Milan @ 2.34 = Potential liability of £25.41

Outcomes:

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

Outcome Bookie Exchange Profit/Loss
Inter Milan win +£24.00 -£25.41 £1.41 loss
Inter Milan don't win -£20.00 +£18.59 £1.41 loss

So, regardless of the outcome, we’ll lose £1.41 in qualifying for our £10.00 free bet.

Free Bet:

We must accept and use our £10.00 free bet before 22:00 on Friday 21st August 2020. Free bets must be used in play on Sevilla v Inter Milan and free bet stakes are not included in any returns.

By using straightforward matched betting, we should be able to extract 80% cash from our £10.00 free bet, so £8.00. If we take into account our qualifying loss of £1.41, this gives us a guaranteed profit of £6.59 on this Virgin Bet offer!

* Sevilla won the match 3-2, resulting in a profit of £6.59 on this Virgin Bet offer. *
