Wednesday April 12th: Atletico Madrid v Leicester In-Play Bet Offer

Details of how the offer works are below. Here’s a quick recap of the game in question: –

Tonight, Leicester travel to Madrid to take on the Spanish giants who have proved to be no mugs in recent Champions League campaigns, taking Real Madrid to extra time in 2014, then losing again to their local rivals in the 2015 Quater Finals, before getting beaten again in last year’s final!

Before they even take a look at their neighbours again they need to shift Leicester out of the way, starting tonight when they play in Madrid. Atletico have a few players missing, with Tiago, Fernandez, Moya and Vrsaljko
all set to miss this leg.

Leicester rested players in their trip to Everton on Sunday, and after beating Seville at a time where their morale was low, should never be written off. Wes Morgan is injured for this clash.

How It The Offer Works

The promotion takes two stages. Each stage involves the customer placing a bet on tonight’s match.

Bet365 requires the customer to place two bets:

the first of which must be placed before kick-off, and the second placed while the game is in-play.

  • Customers must place a bet before kick-off.
  • Customers must then place another bet during the game.
  • If the bet placed during the game loses, it will be refunded. Hence the promotion getting referred to as a risk-free in-play bet.

Atletico Madrid v Leicester Bet365 Inplay Bet Offer

Tips For Tonight

  • Pre match : over 0.5 goals at odds of 1/20 (1.050 decimal).
  • In-play : Atletico no clean sheet at odds of 11/10 (2.10 decimal).

There should be goals tonight, so the pre-match bet on over 0.5 goals should be fairly safe. A risk-free punt could be on Leicester to score at least a goal, bagging you £55 profit on this bet at the time of writing this.

Huge Punt?

  • Pre match : over 0.5 goals at odds of 1/20 (1.050 decimal).
  • In-play : Leicester to win and over 2.5 goals at odds of 22/1 (23.00 decimal).

Sometimes it’s good to go for something crazy – and at 22/1, betting on Leicester to win and there to be at least 3 goals in the match would return you £1100 in profit from a £50 bet on this market at the time of writing this!

Another crazy bet that people often pull off is the match to finish 0-0. £50 on this currently returns a tasty £500 profit!

Important Points To Note From The Terms & Conditions

Sound simple? People often skip over the requirements and lose out.

The offer is capped at £50.

If you place the in-play bet with a stake of £100 – which then loses – only £50 of the £100 will be returned to you.
Only your FIRST in-play bet will be refunded.

If you’re aiming to max out the offer and go for the full £50 as risk-free, don’t get carried away and place other small bets when the game kicks off. It’ll be your first in-play bet that is eligible for a refund, should it lose.

Our Example Scenario

You want a risk-free £50 bet on Atletico Madrid v Leicester :

  • You place the £50 pre-match bet on something (over 2.5 goals for example) as required. Perfect.
  • You then need to place £50 on something in-play, and that £50 needs to be the first in-play bet you make.

Let’s say you’re planning on betting on Leicester to win with your risk-free bet (big punt!).

  • It doesn’t matter what minute of the game you place it, you just need to make sure that’s the first bet you place in-play.
  • If, before placing the £50 in-play bet you spot Vardy to score next is 16/1 and fancy a £2 punt – DON’T! That £2 will become your risk-free bet.

There Is No ‘Free Bet’, ‘Token’, or ‘Voucher’

  • You must place your in-play bet with your bet365 balance. If it loses, it will be refunded in cash – which can be withdrawn immediately. Hence why it is called a risk-free bet, as it will be refunded if it loses.
  • There is no free bet, voucher or token to use like with other betting websites – you must have the cash balance available in your account. It gets called a risk free bet as it is risk free in terms of getting a refund, not because it is a free bet in the first place.

£50 Is Too Much For One Bet, Or £100 Is Too Much To Deposit At Once!

The offer applies for any amount from £1 to £50.

If £50 seems too scary to be betting with or depositing £100 into your account just isn’t feasible, then take part in the offer with a smaller amount. The same principle applies.

Your risk-free bet will match your largest bet placed before the game, up to a maximum of £50.

So if you prefer to place £20 before the game, then £20 in-play – that’s fine! Your in-play £20 will be refunded if it loses.

If My Bet Loses, When Will I Get The Refund?

Usually within two hours of the game finishing. It will show on your account balance – it’s not hidden anywhere.

Thousands of people take part in this promotion – so don’t rush to contact bet365 demanding a refund – it takes time to process so many refunds on all the losing bets!

I Cashed Out My £50 In-Play Bet For £20, What Now?

Do not cash out your in play bet (unless it’s making you loads of cash and you’re getting a bit nervous late in the game!).

Cashed out in-play bets will not be refunded – you’ve taken the money and walked!

It is better to let the £50 in-play bet lose and then be refunded – rather than cashing out for a loss and not getting a refund.

How Often Does This Run?

The Offer Is Available For Certain Selected Matches

This offer is a football (soccer as they refer to it on the site) promotion which is featured for particular matches – often big Premier League clashes, Euro/World Cup tournaments or the latter stages of the Champions League. There is no long-term warning of when the promotion will run.

The promotion also carries no rollover – it’s just a refund.

Bet365 usually announce the offer within the week of the event where it’s applicable.

The offer is hugely popular due to the fact it is possible to make a guaranteed profit.

There’s sometimes several of these offers marketed within a short space of time – such as in the Spring – Summer when cups reach the knockout stages or a big International tournament is in full-flow.

The in-play Bet365 free bet is a sports betting promotion offered periodically for existing customers. This is ran separately from their welcome bonus for new depositing customers and runs alongside their other sports offers. The risk-free bet is awarded to punters that place a bet on a specified event before kick off. There is no ‘free bet’ in the typical meaning of the word (like a no-deposit free bet) – but rather a refund is given in the event of a losing in-play bet. Whilst this may sound complex, it’s actually quite simple once broken down.
