Virgin Bet Sign Up Offer

Description

Register an account with Virgin Bet, deposit and bet £10+ on any sport and get £20 in free bets.

Virgin Bet are part of the same Group as LiveScore Bet. You should be able to do both welcome offers, though I recommend leaving a week or two between sign-ups. If you have been restricted by LiveScore Bet, you can expect Virgin Bet to swiftly do the same.

Key terms

  • Available to residents of Great Britain (does not include Northern Ireland).
  • Minimum deposit of £10.
  • Minimum stake of £10 in one go (not cumulative).
  • Minimum odds of 1.50 (1/2).
  • Qualifying bet must be placed and settled within 14 days of account registration.
  • 2 x £10 free bets will be offered via a pop-up notification upon placement of your qualifying bet.
  • Free bets must be accepted within 7 days.
  • Free bets will be valid for 7 days from acceptance.
  • Free bet stakes will not be returned with any winnings.

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

Account setup

  1. Sign up for a Smarkets account if you haven’t already. You’ll need this to match your bookmaker bet.

  2. Use the ‘Qualifying Bet‘ setting on the Matched Betting Calculator to calculate your lay stake.
  3. Place your £10 qualifying back bet at Virgin Bet (must be placed and settled within 14 days of registering).
  4. Place your lay bet against the same selection at Smarkets.

Free bets

  1. Upon placement of your qualifying bet, you’ll be offered 2 x £10 free bets via a pop-up notification. You must accept your free bets within 7 days.
  2. Check the back odds at Virgin Bet and the lay odds at Smarkets to find a suitable selection.

As a rough guide, limit your qualifying loss to around £1 and aim for £16 cash (80%) from your £20 in free bets. Based on those figures, you should make a £15 profit on this Virgin Bet offer.

General advice and example for ‘Bet X, Get Y’ offers

Once received, you can convert any free bets or bonuses into cash. Use the ‘Free Bet’ setting on the Matched Betting Calculator to calculate your lay stakes. It’s best to place free bets at high odds to maximise your profits.
