It's an entertaining idea dreamed up by creative bookies as an innovative means of giving you the illusion that you're more in control of how much of your money will end up in their pockets.

Done it a few times, and if you pick the right bets you can't lose. My friend did it on the Chelsea v PSG game last week and won £350.
Love the Bet365 offers but i usually go for the guarantee of about £30/£35 profit each time instead of chasing the big win.

Yeah I tried it this week and ended up losing the £50.
If you follow this method you can't lose much.


How To Make The Most Of Your Risk-Free Bet
Plenty of punters enjoy trying to eek out as much profit as possible from this generous promotion.

Our preference is to place a £50 pre-match bet on Over 0.5 Goals at odds of around 1/14. We also cover the 0-0 draw with a bet of around £7 at 15/2 at another bookie. When doing this, bet on the No Goalscorer option in the First Goalscorer market rather than a 0-0 draw, so you get paid if the only goal is an own goal.

So for a maximum total spend of around £7 you are then covered to use your risk-free £50 in-play bet to try to win big, eg. on a first or anytime scorer or correct score.

There are lots of other strategies so feel free to share your own in the comments box below and full terms and conditions can be found over at Bet365’s site. Good luck!
