Ukraine v England Offer – William Hill

It’s Ukraine v England at Euro 2020 on Saturday night and William Hill are getting in on the action! Simply place a £1.00+ Build #YourOdds bet on Ukraine v England and William Hill will match our stake as a free bet up to £5.00. Translated into matched betting terms, this gives us a guaranteed profit of £3.76 and here’s how…

Key terms

  • Applies to bets placed between 17:00 on Friday 2nd July 2021 and 20:00 (kick-off) on Saturday 3rd July 2021.
  • We must click ‘Claim here’ on the promotion page to be eligible.
  • Applies to Build #YourOdds bets placed on Ukraine v England.
  • Minimum stake of £1.00.
  • Minimum odds of 1.20 (1/5).
  • Matched free bet up to £5.00.

Qualifying bet

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

We could take a speculative approach and not lay our Build #YourOdds bet. If our bet loses, we know that by using straightforward matched betting, we should be able to convert our £5.00 free bet into 80% cash, so £4.00. That means the most we can lose on this offer is £1.00 and we could make a nice profit.

If we lay our qualifying bet though, we can lock in a guaranteed profit.

So, looking at the selections available, we could place our qualifying bet on Result – England / Both Teams to Score – No at back odds of 2.10 (11/10). The lay odds are currently 2.18.
