The French Open 2020 is in full swing and you don’t want to miss this Virgin Bet free bet offer! Simply place three or more £5.00+ bets on in play tennis markets and Virgin Bet will give us a £5.00 free bet to use on any in play tennis market. Translated into matched betting terms, this gives us a guaranteed profit of £44.10 and here’s how…

Key Terms:

  • Place three or more £5.00+ bets on in play tennis markets.
  • Bets must be placed and settled between 00:01 on Monday 28th September 2020 and 23:59 on Sunday 11th October 2020.
  • Minimum odds of 1.80 (4/5) per bet.
  • We can qualify once per day during the promotional period.

Qualifying Bets:

Be aware that Virgin Bet have different retirement rules to Betfair and Smarkets, which could leave you exposed to a big loss in the event of a retirement. The safest way of doing this offer is dutching your qualifying bet at another bookmaker with the same retirement rules.

We can calculate our stakes using my Dutching Calculator.

Aim to lose no more than £0.20 on each of our 3 qualifying bets

So, we’ll lose approximately £0.60 in qualifying for each £5.00 free bet.

Free Bets:

Our £5.00 free bets can be claimed via a pop-up notification that will usually be displayed within 24 hours of our qualifying bets being settled. Free bets will be valid for 7 days on in play tennis markets. Free bet stakes will not be included in any returns.

Using straightforward matched betting, we should be able to convert our free bets into 75% cash, so £3.75. If we take into account our daily qualifying loss of £0.60, this gives us a guaranteed daily profit of £3.15 on this Virgin Bet offer!

With the promotional period running for 14 days across the tournament, that’s an overall guaranteed profit of £44.10!

    Beware that Virgin’s retirement rules are not the same as the exchanges, you should dutch your bets on a different bookmaker with the same rules (William Hill for example) but this makes it very hard to profit from this offer, as it’s difficult to make small losses on the qualifying bets.

      Thanks for flagging this up Kit. I mistakenly thought they had the same retirement rules as the exchanges. Post updated!
