Virgin Bet – England v Iran Offer

It’s England v Iran at World Cup 2022 on Monday, and you don’t want to miss this Virgin Bet free bet offer! They’re giving selected customers a £1.00 free bet to use on the big match! Translated into matched betting terms, this gives you a potential profit of £7.00 and here’s how…

Key terms

  • The promotion is available to selected customers only.
  • Available between 11:00 on Thursday 17th November 2022 and 13:00 (kick-off) on Monday 21st November 2022.
  • Accept the free bet via the ‘My Bets’ page.
  • You’ll receive a £1.00 free bet on England v Iran.

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, you could place your free bet on ‘1:1‘ in the ‘Correct Score‘ market at back odds of 8.00 (7/1).
