888sport Sign Up Offer – £30 in Free Bets + £10 Casino Bonus

The 888sport sign up offer is another easy starter for matched betting newbies. Simply sign up, deposit and bet £10 and 888sport will give you £30 in free bets, plus a £10 casino bonus. Translated into matched betting terms, this gives you a guaranteed profit of £23+. Let’s work through it one step at a time.

Key terms

  • Make first deposit of £10+ using promotional code ‘30FB‘.
  • Minimum stake of £10.
  • Minimum odds of 1.50 (1/2).
  • Qualifying bet must be placed within 30 days of account registration.
  • 3 x £10 free bets, plus a £10 casino bonus credited upon settlement of qualifying bet.
  • Promotion is not available to customers depositing via PayPal, Muchbetter, Paysafe Card, Neteller or Skrill.

The strategy

This is a straightforward ‘Bet X, Get X‘ offer.

To claim the £30 in free bets, plus a £10 casino bonus, you’ll need to bet £10 at odds of 1.50 (1/2) or greater. You can then use straightforward matched betting to convert your free bets into cash.

Qualifying bet

It’s entirely up to you what you place your qualifying bet on, but you’ll need to find a selection with close back and lay odds. Big football matches are a good place to start looking or any other popular events where plenty of bets will be placed.

If you’d like more information about qualifying bets and how they work, please see my qualifying bets guide.

I’ll use some example odds to illustrate how this offer should be done. Let’s say Tottenham are back odds of 1.80 and lay odds of 1.87 to win a football match.

Use an exchange of your choice

You can calculate your lay stake using my Matched Betting Calculator

As you can see, the calculator tells you that your lay stake should be £9.89

Place £10.00 on Tottenham @ 1.80 = Potential profit of £8.00

Betfair logo

Lay £9.89 on Tottenham @ 1.87 = Potential liability of £8.60

Let’s have a look at your potential profit/loss for each outcome…

Tottenham win+ £8.00– £8.60£0.60 loss
Tottenham lose or draw– £10.00+ £9.39£0.61 loss

So, regardless of whether Tottenham win, lose or draw, you’ll incur a small loss of no more than £0.61. It’s worth it though, as you’ve just qualified for £30 in free bets, plus a £10 casino bonus!

Free bets

Your 3 x £10 free bets will be credited to your account upon settlement of your qualifying bet. One of the free bets can only be used via mobile. The free bets will be valid for 7 days and free bet stakes will not be returned with any winnings.

Repeat the matched betting process for each of your free bets, but this time select the ‘Free Bet‘ option on the calculator. If you’re still a bit unsure of the process and would like to walk through using your free bets step by step, see my free bets guide.

Casino bonus

Your £10 casino bonus will also be credited to your account upon settlement of your qualifying bet and can be used on selected casino games.

The casino bonus amount must be wagered 40 times within 14 days before you can withdraw any winnings, so £10 x 40 = £400 of wagering. The maximum amount you can redeem from this bonus is £500.

It’s unlikely that you’ll be able to wager the bonus 40 times without busting so just try and your luck, you never know!

Final words

You should be able to get £24 cash (80%) from your £30 in free bets. If you take into account your maximum qualifying loss of £0.61, this gives you a guaranteed profit of £23.39 on the 888sport sign up offer!
