There’s a big Saturday afternoon of Horse Racing to look forward to and you don’t want to miss this William Hill Scratch of the Day offer! Place a £10.00 bet on any Horse Racing market on Saturday and William Hill will give us a £5.00 free bet to use on any sport. Translated into matched betting terms, this gives us a guaranteed profit of £3.50 and here’s how…

Key Terms:

  • We must scratch on the Promotion page to reveal the offer.
  • We must click ‘Claim here‘ once the offer has been revealed.
  • Promotion will run from 08:00 until 23:59 on Saturday 14th March 2020.
  • We must place a £10.00 win or £10.00 each way bet on any Horse Racing market on Saturday 14th March 2020.
  • Qualifying bet must be placed at odds of 1.20 (1/5) or greater.

Note: The order in which you scratch seems to be irrelevant. Some users may not be eligible for the offer and some users may receive a variation of the offer such as ‘Bet £5, Get £2’ or ‘Bet £10, Get £10’.

Qualifying Bet:

If you’re unfamiliar with qualifying bets, please see my Qualifying Bet Strategy page for a walk-through guide on how it should be done.

A quick look at the OddsMonkey Oddsmatcher tool will give us an idea on what to place our qualifying bet on.

We can place our lay bet at Betfair or Smarkets.

We can calculate our lay stakes using my matched betting calculator.

Aim to lose no more than £0.50 on our qualifying bet

Free Bet:

Our £5.00 free bet will be credited upon placement of our qualifying bet and will be valid for 4 days on any Sports market. Free bet stakes are not included in any returns.

By using straightforward matched betting, we should be able to extract 80% cash from our £5.00 free bet, so £4.00. If we take into account our qualifying loss of £0.50, this gives us a guaranteed profit of £3.50 on this William Hill offer!

    I seem to not get these anymore, the promotion is still there but my first scratch is usually football and then second is horse related and therefore its void. Does this mean i have been restricted from this promotion? Received no email about it.

    I only get a free £2 bet, but worth a mug punt.

    No mainstream sport from which to keep up their revenue streams is going to really hit the bookies. This is going to go one of two ways:

    1. They just batten down hatches and write off the next month
    2. They try to generate similar levels of pre-virus income from us with more offers on a dwindling sporting market.

    Fascinating times….

      They’ll end up having markets which are ‘Will the premier league resume?’, ‘Will olympics happen?’

      People bet on snails racing I’m sure the bookies will work something.

        Not to mention casino and virtual sports. Not for me but I suspect many punters are not so fussy.

    I keep running into problems each day/week. I click on either Bonus Drop or Scratch of the Day but nothing loads up. Anyone experienced this? It works fine on a mates’ laptop. Must be something in my settings but can’t find what it can be?
