Qualifying bet

Please see my ‘Qualifying Betting Guide’ if you would like more information about them and how they work.

It’s up to you which horse you choose, but it would make sense to select a horse with fairly long odds and hope it doesn’t finish 1st, 2nd or 3rd.

As of this writing, ‘yaasser‘ is available on return chances of 1:00 p.m. and lengthen chances of 14.00.

You can calculate your lengthen bet using my matched betting calculator.

As you can see, the calculator tells you that your lengthen the issue should be £8.87.

Place £10.00 on Yaaser @ 13.00 = potential profit of £114.00

Deposit £8.87 on Yaaser at 2:00 p.m. = potential liability of £115.31


Let’s look at your profit/loss for possible outcomes.

Results betting fair Swap Free bet loss of profit
Yaaser wins + €114.00 – £115.31 £1.31 loss
Yaaser ends
2nd or 3rd
– £10.00 + €8.69 £1.31 loss
Yaaser does not end
1st, 2nd or 3rd
– £10.00 + €8.69 +£8.00 £6.69 profit

So you will make a profit of £6.69 if Yaaser does not finish 1st, 2nd or 3rd. You stand to lose £1.31 on any other result. Risking £1.31 to make a potential profit of £6.69 gives you effective odds of 6.11, which I’m sure you’ll agree makes it a profitable long-term offer.

If eligible, free bets will be credited within 24 hours and valid at any horse market for 7 days.

If you are unsure how to convert your £10.00 free bet to £8.00 cash (80%), please see my ‘Free Bet Guide’ for a walkthrough.
