Virgin Bet – £1 Free Bet Offer

Premier League football returns this weekend, and you don’t want to miss this Virgin Bet free bet offer! They’re giving selected customers a £1.00 free bet on any Premier League 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.
  • Available between 00:00 on Friday 5th August 2022 and 23:59 on Sunday 7th August 2022.
  • Accept the free bet via the ‘My Bets’ page.
  • You’ll receive a £1 free bet on any English Premier League match.
  • The free bet will be valid for 7 days.
  • The free bet stake will not be returned with any winnings.

Free bet

With the free bet being small, I suspect many will be happy to just punt this for a risk-free shot at a decent return.

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

Looking at the odds available for West Ham v Man City (Sunday 16:30), you could place your free bet on ‘West Ham‘ in the ‘1X2 1st half‘ market at back odds of 7.00 (6/1).
