Sky Bet Gives More Than Free Bet Offers
September 4, 2017
Popular online bookmaker Sky Bet has once again provided for the traveling football fan. The bookie has an away day initiative that makes long journeys to watch your football club that little bit more bearable. The firm previously offered a free drink to each Derby County fan that made the Friday evening trip to the Stadium of Light for the Rams’ opening day clash with Sunderland.
On Saturday it was the turn of Bristol Rovers who faced an arduous 215 mile trip to Valley parade to face Bradford City. The travelling faithful were able to pick up a free breakfast courtesy of Sky Bet before heading North to watch the match. Unfortunately for the dedicated Rovers supporters, there was little to take from the game itself, as the Bantams romped to a 3-1 home victory.
A spokesman from Sky Bet announced the kind gesture ahead of the game;
“We’re lining the Rovers fans’ stomachs with a free breakfast before they set off to let them know we appreciate their commitment.”
The notion was met with praise from Bristol Rovers manager Darrell Clarke;
“We have some of the best supporters in the country and I am pleased that their efforts to support their team by travelling so far on a Saturday morning is being recognised in this way.”
Sky Bet is the principal sponsor of the English Football League. It’s branding has been associated with the Championship, League One and League Two since the agreement began in 2013. Last year the bookie extended the deal which will now run until 2019.
Sky Bet Free Bet Offers
Sky Bet is the go-to bookie for many a UK punter. The website and mobile apps are super-easy to use and make for a hassle-free session every time. Add to this competitive odds, free bet offers and first-rate branding, and it’s not hard to see why this operator is first choice for a lot of bettors.
It’s not just the traditional punter that appreciates Sky Bet. Those in the know about matched betting are big fans too. If you’re new to the concept, matched betting is a proven technique of extracting a profit from bookmaker promotions. With the bookie running so many incentives, it’s a firm favourite among matched bettors.
Make £16 With The New Customer Offer
The current welcome offer rewards your first bet of £5 or more with a £20 free bet. On the face of it this is a great deal but taking a standard betting approach leaves you open to the risk of losing bets. By following the instructions on Matched Bets, you can cover all outcomes and lock-in a profit of around £16 from the offer. You will lose a few pence when placing the qualifying bet but can then use the free bet to guarantee a profit. It’s just one of three free bet offers included in the trial, which should see you make roughly £50.
The trial is completely free and there is no obligation to go premium. You will be able to use our industry leading oddsmatcher which finds ideal bets for you that are closely matched with exchange prices. Selecting a bet will then take you directly to our integrated matched betting calculator which will be preloaded with the bet information. All you will need to do is follow the on screen instructions to place the bets. Both the odds matching software and calculator update in real time, so you will be notified of any movements in the market. All of your bets are stored in our special tracker, which means there is no need for complex spreadsheets to keep tabs on your profit total.
Make More With Money Back Offers
You could be forgiven for thinking that once you have used the signup offer, there’s no other way of making money but this couldn’t be further from the truth. Sky Bet regularly promotes special offers for existing customers that can be used to make more money. It is these ‘reloads’ from online bookmakers that allow you to generate sustainable profits from matched betting.
Sky Bet Free Bet Club gives a £5 free bet for each week that you place £25 worth of real bets with the bookmaker. This is simple enough to take advantage of and an easy way of adding up to £4 to your weekly takings. Just like the signup, you’ll accept a small loss on the qualifying bet and use the free bet to make a profit.
The pick of Sky’s money back offers is a risk-free bet on selected horse racing meetings. These tend to focus on the first race of the day at big meetings such as the Cheltenham Festival and Royal Ascot. The way they work is simple, back a horse and if it doesn’t win you’ll get up to £20 back as a free bet. The ‘Freebet on Loss’ setting on our calculator allows you to lock-in as much as £14 from this promotion.
Even when there aren’t major racing meetings, there are still betting offers that have value. There are money back offers if your horse finishes 2nd, 2nd or 3rd and in some cases even 2nd, 3rd or 4th. While you won’t get a refund every time, by following our instructions, you can make these offers pay in the long-run.
There are also ‘Extra-Place’ races where the bookmaker will pay out additional each-way places to the standard terms. This gives an opportunity to make money by betting with the bookmaker and laying the standard place market on a betting exchange. Then if the horse finishes in the extra place, you will win with both the bookmaker and exchange.
Profit From Sky Bet Price Boosts
Price Boosts allow you to bet at enhanced odds that are above the normal price offered by the bookie. This can present arbitrage opportunities where the exchange odds are lower than the price boost. An arb is a situation where you will make a profit, regardless of the outcome of the bet. Generally speaking, we don’t recommend taking too many arbs as this can alert bookmakers to your activity. However, Sky Price Boosts can be used from time to time to add to your earnings alongside your normal matched betting.
