Sky Bet – World Cup 2022 Semi-Finals Offer

The World Cup 2022 Semi-Finals get underway on Tuesday night, and you don’t want to miss this Sky Bet free bet offer! They’re giving selected customers a £1.00 free ‘BuildABet’ to use on either match! Translated into matched betting terms, this gives you a potential profit of £6.00 and here’s how…

Key terms

  • The promotion is available to selected customers only.
  • The promotional period runs from 12:00 on Monday 12th December 2022, until 22:00 on Wednesday 14th December 2022.
  • You must click the ‘Opt In’ button onsite during the promotional period to receive your £1.00 free bet.
  • The free bet will be valid on ‘BuildABet‘ for Argentina v Croatia (Tue 19:00) or France v Morocco (Wed 19:00).
  • The free bet stake will not be returned with any winnings.

Free bet

It’s entirely up to you how you play this offer.

You could build a bet that is layable and lock in around £0.60 profit. Please see my ‘Bet Builders‘ guide for a walkthrough on building layable selections.

With the free bet being small, though, I suspect many will be happy to just punt this for a risk-free shot at a decent return. That’s my preferred approach.

It’s entirely up to you what you place your free ‘BuildABet‘ on.

Looking at the options for France v Morocco (Wed 19:00), you could place it on ‘Draw (Full Time Result) / Yes (Both Teams To Score) / 7+ (Total Corners)‘ at odds of 7.00 (6/1).

Place £1.00 free bet on ‘Draw (FT) / Yes (BTTS) / 7+ corners’ @ 7.00 = Potential profit of £6.00


Let’s look at your profit/loss for the possible outcomes.

So, if France v Morocco is a score draw with 7+ corners, you’ll make a £6.00 profit on this Sky Bet offer! In any other outcome, you’ve lost your free bet, and there’s no harm done.

* France beat Morocco 2-0 with 5 corners in the match, resulting in break-even on this Sky Bet offer. *
