Always check the terms of an offer yourself before placing any bets. Bookmakers can amend their terms anytime, so it’s always worth double-checking.

Account setup

  1. Sign up for a betting exchange account if you haven’t already. You’ll need this to match your bookmaker bets.
  1. Register an account with Sportingbet.
  1. Deposit £20 using a debit card. Depending on the outcomes of your bets for each challenge, you may need to make additional deposits to complete further challenges.
  2. Switch to decimal odds.

Acca Challenge

Place a £10+ accumulator bet and get a free bet worth 50% of your stake up to £10.

Qualifying bet

  1. Your qualifying bet must be a multiple with 3+ selections and minimum odds of 1.50 (1/2) per selection. Check the back odds at Sportingbet and the lay odds at Smarkets to find suitable selections.
  2. Use the ‘Qualifying Bet‘ setting on the Matched Betting Calculator to calculate your lay stake.
  3. Place your £20 qualifying back bet on an eligible multiple at Sportingbet.
  4. Place your lay bet against the same multiple at Smarkets.

Free bet

  1. Your £10 free bet will be credited 10 minutes after meeting the qualifying requirements.
  2. Check the back odds at Sportingbet and the lay odds at the betting exchange to find a suitable selection.
  3. Use the ‘Free Bet‘ setting on the Matched Betting Calculator to calculate your lay stake.
  4. Place your £10 free back bet at Sportingbet (valid for 3 days).
  5. Place your lay bet against the same selection at the betting exchange.

As a rough guide, limit your qualifying loss to around £3 and aim for £8 cash (80%) from your £10 free bet. Based on those figures, you should make a £5 profit on Sportingbet’s ‘Acca Challenge’.

In-Play Challenge

Place a £10+ in-play single bet on any sport and get a 50% ‘Back Up Bet Token’. The token gives you 50% money back as a free bet up to £20 if your next bet loses.

Qualifying bet 1

  1. Your qualifying bet must be placed in play. Your qualifying bet must be placed at minimum odds of 1.50 (1/2). Check the back odds at Sportingbet and the lay odds at the betting exchange to find a suitable selection.
  2. Use the ‘Qualifying Bet‘ setting on the Matched Betting Calculator to calculate your lay stake.
  3. Place your £10 qualifying back bet at Sportingbet.
  4. Place your lay bet against the same selection at the betting exchange.

Qualifying bet 2

  1. Your Back Up Bet Token can be used on any sport except horse racing. If your bet loses, your free bet will equal 50% of your stake, up to £20, so you’ll want to stake £40. Check the back odds at Sportingbet and the lay odds at the betting exchange to find a suitable selection. Look for odds around 5.00 (4/1) and above, as high odds should give you more profit than low odds.
  2. Use the ‘Money Back if Bet Loses‘ setting on the Matched Betting Calculator to calculate your lay stake. You can enter £16 as your ‘Cashback‘ figure as that’s the amount you can expect to convert your £20 free bet into (80%), should your qualifying bet lose.
  3. Place your £40 qualifying back bet at Sportingbet.
  4. Place your lay bet against the same selection at the betting exchange.

Free bet

  1. If your qualifying bet wins, you’ll make your profit at Sportingbet, and you won’t need to place any further bets. You’ll receive a £20 free bet 10 minutes after settlement if your qualifying bet loses.
  2. Check the back odds at Sportingbet and the lay odds at the betting exchange to find a suitable selection.
  3. Use the ‘Free Bet‘ setting on the Matched Betting Calculator to calculate your lay stake.
  4. Place your £20 free back bet at Sportingbet (valid for 3 days).
  5. Place your lay bet against the same selection at the betting exchange.

As a rough guide, limit your initial qualifying loss to around £1 and aim for a £10 profit from your subsequent back up bet. Based on those figures, you should make a £9 profit on Sportingbet’s ‘Acca Challenge’.

Football Challenge

Place a £10+ pre-match bet on any football market, and get 20 free spins on Starburst and a 10% odds boost token.

Qualifying bet

  1. Your qualifying bet must be placed on football at minimum odds of 1.50 (1/2). Check the back odds at Sportingbet and the lay odds at the betting exchange to find a suitable selection.
  2. Use the ‘Qualifying Bet‘ setting on the Matched Betting Calculator to calculate your lay stake.
  3. Place your £10 qualifying back bet at Sportingbet.
  4. Place your lay bet against the same selection at the betting exchange.

Free spins

  1. Use your 20 x £0.10 free spins on Starburst (within 3 days). Any funds won using the free spins will be credited as withdrawable cash.

Odds boost

  1. Use your 10% odds boost token on any sport other than horse racing (within 3 days). The maximum stake is £10.

As a rough guide, limit your qualifying loss to around £0.50 and hope to make a profit from your free spins. You may struggle to profit from the odds boost with it being small.

Casino Challenge

Wager £50+ on any casino games and get a £10 casino bonus. The bonus will be valid on selected casino games for 3 days, with winnings needing to be wagered ten times, again on selected games.

You should not attempt the Casino Challenge unless you understand casino offers and how they work.

Final words

Sportingbet will reward you with an extra £20 free bet if you complete all four challenges. Due to the casino element, I’ve not included the extra free bet in the overall profit figure for this offer.

So, with a £5 profit from the ‘Acca Challenge’, a £9 profit from the ‘In-Play Challenge’ and a £0.50 loss from the ‘Football Challenge’, you should make a £13.50 profit on this Sportingbet offer.

How to lay a multiple bet

Your best option is to lay your multiple at Smarkets, as their platform allows you to build any multiple and lay it as one bet. Therefore, you can place your multiple bet at the bookmaker and then build and lay the same multiple at Smarkets.
