William Hill Mobile Bet Boost Extended
September 11, 2017
There was a sense of disappointment when William Hill Bet Boost was removed at the end of August. In fairness to them, it was outlined in the terms and conditions that it would run until the end of August and then would be removed. However, it must have been good for business as it has been re-introduced and is now scheduled to run until at least the end of October.
What is William Hill Mobile Bet Boost?
It is simple really. When you are using the William Hill website on a mobile device such as a smartphone, you can use a Bet Boost token to enhance the odds on a selection. One bet boost is available per person, per day and can be used on any pre-match market on any sport. It is simple to use too, all you need to do is look through the William Hill site and choose a selection you want to boost the odds for and add it to your betslip. Then, go to your betslip and tap the yellow ‘Boost’ button. All that is left to do then is enter your desired stake and confirm your bet.
The boosts are available each day throughout September and October, but we are hoping that it is extended even further than this. To access a boost, you must be using the mobile browser version of the site or the William Hill app. When you click the Boost button in your betslip, you will be shown the boosted odds. How boosted the odds will be is dependant on the original odds of the selection. Essentially, the bigger the original odds, the bigger the boost will be.
How to use the Bet Boost
- Choose your selection and add it to your betslip
- Click the ‘Boost’ button to show the boosted odds
- Enter your stake and confirm the bet
Please be aware that the boosts do not roll over to the next day. If they are not used then they will expire. Your bet must also be placed with real money as you cannot use free bet stakes with a Bet Boost. This is important to know when working out how to profit from this offer through matched betting.
Adding profit through matched betting
When matched betting, we can ensure a profit from this offer in a really simple way. If you have never come across matched betting before, it is a way of guaranteeing a profit from special offers listed by bookmakers. To do this, we usually place a back bet on a selection to win with a bookmaker and a lay bet on the same selection not to win on a betting exchange. Therefore, we will have covered both outcomes. The strategy for making money from the William Hill mobile Bet Boost offer is to use the enhanced odds at the bookmaker to create an arbitrage situation.
An arbitrage bet, commonly know as just an ‘arb’, is when the odds at the bookmaker are greater than the odds against the same selection on a betting exchange. When this happens, we are able to guarantee ourselves a profit with the help of the MatchedBets.com matched betting calculator, which is a crucial tool for this offer as well as many others.
Finding an arb manually is easier said than done, so it is best to use another of our matched betting tools to help you out here. The Odds Matcher automatically compares the odds on William Hill to those on four betting exchanges; Betfair, Smarkets, Betdaq and Matchbook. It will then identify the closest matches and will list them in order of the best match to the worst match. Therefore, for the Bet Boost offer we will be ideally looking for matches with a match percentage of 95% or above.
The closer the match, the more profit we will be able to make from the offer. We will then find a very close match and use the boosted odds to create our own arb. We will be able to place a stake of up to £200 on each boosted selection each day. When completing the offer, making £2 in profit every day should be easy enough but you may be able to make more. It all depends on how good the matches are.
An arb example
Lets go through an example to see how this offer really works from start to finish. Using the Odds Matcher, we have found an excellent match of 98.96% on the match between Sporting Gijon II and Racing Santander. The selection we will be backing is Racing Santander in the Match Odds market. The original odds were 2.00 but when using the Bet Boost, the odds are boosted to 2.08. The lay odds on Betfair Exchange were 1.970.
Say we were to place the £200 stake on Racing Santander at the normal odds of 2.00 (without the Bet Boost) and placed the lay bet of £216.67 (the ideal lay stake as worked out by the matched betting calculator), you would lose £2.08 if Racing Santander win the match and £2.09 if they lose. However, if we placed the £200 bet at the boosted odds of 2.08, we would make a profit of £5.83 if Racing Santander win and £5.84 if they lose the match.
All things considered, this is an excellent offer as long as the Odds Matcher is used to find as close of a match as possible. As we can use one Bet Boost per day, the profits from the offer can add significant value to our matched betting journey.
Other William Hill offers
This is not the only special promotion that is currently being listed by William Hill. Lets take a look at some of the other offers that can be turned into a profit through matched betting.
- New Customer Offer
If you do not yet have an account with William Hill, we would advise that you complete the new customer offer first. When you register for an account and use the promo code C30, you will get £30 in free bets when you deposit and bet your first £10. Signing up is easy, simply enter your personal details and select a unique username and password. Once you have deposited £10, preferably with a debit card, you can use the Odds Matcher to find a good selection for a qualifying bet above the minimum odds of 1.5. Enter the relevant details into the calculator and place your lay bet for minimal qualifying losses. You will have lost a few pence but will be given £30 worth of free bets, which we can turn into guaranteed cash.
The free bets are credited as three £10 bets. Again, use the Odds Matcher to find a good match, this time looking for odds of 5.0 or greater. Use the £10 free bet to place your back bet on William Hill and place your lay bet on the exchange. Then repeat this process for the other two £10 free bets. You will expect to keep around 80% of each £10 free bet. When factoring in qualifying loss, you will probably come out with around £23 profit overall.
- 2 Clear
Horse racing offers can be extremely profitable if they go your way. Here, William Hill offer a 15% boost as a free bet on winnings for selected flat racing meetings each day, providing your selection wins by 2 lengths or more. The selected meeting will be clearly listed in the offer guide in the Premium section of MatchedBets.com, so you will not need to look for it yourself. As long as there are 6 runners or more in the race, your bet will count towards the offer.
Use the Odds Matcher to find a good match, then place both the back bet and the lay bet. They will pretty much cancel each other out, giving you a number of attempts at hitting the free bet for very little risk. If your selection does win by two lengths or more, the free bet can be used to turn into a profit.
- 4 Means More
Here, William Hill offer a 15% boost as a free bet, up to the amount of £50, if your bet wins and there are four or more goals in the match. This is relevant for all televised Premier League football matches. The eligible markets here are Match Betting, Both Teams To Score and Match Result and Both Teams To Score.
The strategy here is to use the ‘Normal’ feature on the matched betting calculator and hope that there are four or more goals. Similar to the 2 Clear offer, your back bet and lay bet will cancel each other out to make the offer close to risk free. If you get the free bet, you can then use the standard matched betting strategy to guarantee yourself a profit.
With the help of the offer guides on MatchedBets.com, you can guarantee yourself a profit from over 50 sign up offers. Once they are complete, you can then move on to the existing customer and accumulator offers in order to consistently add to your matched betting profits.
