    It's back folks
    same as ever
    Bet 365

    for those not familiar...

    Place a pre-match bet on the Man City v Barcelona game and we will give you a risk free In-Play bet to the same stake on the big match.

    To qualify for your risk free In-Play bet, simply place a bet before kick-off, then once the game starts place another bet on any In-Play market. If your FIRST In-Play bet loses we will refund this stake, up to the same value as your largest pre-match bet (max €50).


    There are no catches for any newbies out there
    If you want your stake back I'd considering doing a
    certainty pre match (under 4.5 second half goals for me at 1/66) and
    betting on whatever takes your fancy in play

    You need to deposit 100 euro first and foremost


    last two of these utdvchels, arsevchels ended scoreless
    It surely won't happen this time

    is lodging €50 not enough to get the free €50 bet?

    afraid not

    you must use your own money for both bets
    they'll refund the in play bet if it loses an hour or
    two after the match

    The site has acted up on occasion in the past so wise to
    put the money in well in advance to be safe

    Terms and conditions usually mention something about bets which guarantee a profit will be voided or excluded form the promotion. Can't remember the exact wording as I can't access gambling sites in work but something along those lines.

    Whether they actually do it or not is another thing. I'm sure plenty on this site have done profit guaranteed bets with this offer and have never seen anyone posting afterwards to say they weren't paid.

    It is in the T&Cs, but have seen this promotion be used this way countless times without any problems or objections. I'd be amazed if Bet365 wasn't aware of how the promotion was used; they even advertise it as "Risk Free". :P

    Think I'll go Barca or Draw pre-match, and City win as soon as the match starts myself :)

    Does this apply to bonus cash does anyone know? The limits might actually be high enough in this game that i'm actually able to get 50 on with them for once. But they wont answer my question on live chat

    im going for the jackpot as I always do with these bets
    City asain handicap 0,+.5 for my pre game bet and with the free bet barca ht city ft 25/1

    carpe diem!

    I like this approach of going for a mad bet with the freebie but I also like making same bet twice in order to double the odds and get some big value.

    My "safe" pre-match will be City DNB @ 11/10 and then take the 2/1 for the win in running (obviously it would be stupid to do DNB when it's money back on all losers anyway). In effect I am risking fifty euro for a potential profit of €155 or in other words getting odds of over 3/1 for City DNB. I thought 2/1 about a City home win was a big price but increasing that by over 50% and for a lower risk makes my day. Barca's away record in Champions' League has been pretty shabby over last year. Only beaten Celtic in six away games and we all know how good City are at home. Have a feeling they'll go for this as they won't fancy taking much from the Nou Camp

    taken from the tips page on here, Barcelona have only won four of their last 15 matches against Premier League sides. In the same period they've lost five of their games, and drawn six.
    All there wins where at home expect when they beat United in the final.
    I leaning towards city win and the dnb is a very solid bet,might have a small bit on -1 aswell as i think they will really go for it as they dont want to go to the nou camp looking for goals!!

    Good luck to everyone!

    Yes, I fancy City myself tonight, was going to place both bets on City win @ 2/1 giving an effective 4/1 but over 3/1 DNB looks much more attractive so will go with that. I think if City are to have any chance in this tie they need to make the most of their home advantage and Barca's dodgy enough away form.

    i think its the best approach. a free pop at a few hundred or maybe a grand. much better than guaranteeing 20 bob and risk having the account limited and future offers restricted.

    not sure what ill do yet but will probably be at odds of 5/1 or more.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,773 ✭✭✭madma


    feck it, gona do over 0.5 goals and then back no goals in play for a longshot. either gonna end up 2 quid profit or 600 :pac:


  • Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 42,396 Mod ✭✭✭✭Lord TSC


    Decided to play it safe.

    Barca or Draw - If it wins, I'm up 20 quid.
    City win (in play) - if it wins, I'm up about 50 quid.

    As someone who typically only bets 2 or 3 quid at a time, either bet will fund my habit for the next few weeks :P


  • Registered Users Posts: 23,811 ✭✭✭✭mailburner


    1st in play bet for me 0-0 ht 5/4
    bit skinny but its been tight so far


  • Registered Users Posts: 23,811 ✭✭✭✭mailburner


    really stuck here
    city not in it yet but defending is great

    hoping for a repeat of the last offer game
    50 no first goal at 7/1
