I have had a number of FREE BETS in my time (both here on 888 & with other bookmakers) but nothing like this!


Do i place it on next years EUROVISION CONTEST & the UK winning it? Wink


Perhaps this is the year the ALIENS finally show up & reveal themselves to us? Surprised
Don't think 888 do novelty bets like this do they? Laughing

Maybe a bet on the Trump / Kim meeting taking place? OR not? Smile


Ok, let's get a little more serious, there's a chance to turn a whopping $100 free bet i won into some real cash but how to do it?

The trouble with me is i like most SPORTS...

Do i place it on...

The British OPEN Golf Tournament? to pick the outright winner is very difficult but i've won in the past by placing bets E/W on players & i do fancy Paul Casey to be up there this year after having a good year...he is 20-1 to win OR 5-1 (1/4 the odds to finish 1-2-3-4-5)
Good bet? or too much of a risk?
I think the latter with such a BIG bet!

Place it on a Horse?
SAXON WARRIOR was an almost certainy (the experts said) 4/5 on the bookies said...LOST it did with a decent outsider winning THE DERBY on Saturday (for what it's worth i didn't win on it either, i had HAZAPOUR Cry)

New England Patriots to win the SUPERBOWL perhaps?

Let's be HONEST...being a huge FOOTBALL fan it's likely to go on THE WORLD CUP in just under a few weeks time but WHERE?

Any ideas?

Any bet stand out as a GOODIE & more likely than not?

I've already had numerous bets on ENGLAND to WIN this WORLD CUP at 20-1 & 18-1 (i know NUTS right? well let's just say this time i've put my money where my mouth is as i think there is something different about the England set up this time around & even when NOT playing too well we seem to pick up results...a sign of a GOOD SIDE)

Got Harry Kane & Sterling covered for GOLDEN BOOT WINNER (i know!!!! Raheem Sterling??? he still hasn't scored for England in ages! but i feel it's coming & what better place to do it, btw although the tattoo is naff i do understand the reasons he gave for it)
For any of these guys to win that piece of GOLD they will have to reach at least the Q-Finals (which i am expecting but then we are likely to meet either BRAZIL or GERMANY here but we drew with both with a weakened side & so why can't we FINALLY start beating these BIG SIDES in tournaments like this?) if they do progress past this point then KANE could do it at 17-1....i certainly expect HARRY to be close! a HATRICK would do WONDERS in the GROUP games but we'll see.

So these are covered, along with GROUP WINNERS...i got SPAIN, FRANCE, ARGENTINA (although you just never know with the Argies in these tourneys) &  BRAZIL in an accumulator.

And some of the early games i have covered.

SO WHAT TO DO WITH this $100 BET????

Something with a CHANCE of PAYING OFF?

These are the one's that i am thinking about carefully...

ENGLAND to REACH the Q-Finals & then be ELIMINATED is 11/5 (just over 2-1) and as i'll be shocked if we again go out early at the Group Stages i would expect us to at least reach the LAST 16 where we should probably face either Poland or perhaps Colombia.
Get through that & the teams lying in wait at this QF stage are likely to be either BRAZIL (if we win the group) or GERMANY (if runners up)

Personally speaking & this tournament being in Russia (with a climate PERFECT for us) i think & hope it's TIME we start beating this class of team at these stages.
So although i think we will beat either of these at this stage & go on to win it might it pay to cover the chance of going out at this stage to either of these sides?

Because if we do get past either BRAZIL or GERMANY at this stage we'll then be in a SEMI FINAL & i think we'll then go ALL the WAY Undecided maybe.

OR

How about HARRY KANE to score more than 2.5 goals during the Tournament?
Odds on this are short...17/20 so there is a GOOD CHANCE of this happening.
Personally speaking i can see KANE getting 2 goals in 1 game (Panama or Tunisia) & perhaps even the first England World Cup hatrick since LINEAKER!!!

Seriously considering this one above.

OR

A Group Game Result?

The 16th of June game between PERU (in great form) vs DENMARK who can be difficult to beat in the first group games so a DRAW is 23/10.

This is my favourite (so far) as there are ONLY 3 outcomes...
Peru win (could well do in the form they're in)
Denmark (might win? with Eriksen it's not out of the question)
or this DRAW?
With both cancelling each other out?
Have even toiled with a correct score of 1-1? which is usually around 5-1 but is it worth the extra risk for a little more? could end 0-0?


If i could put it on Artifical Structures being found on our MOON, MARS, PLUTO & COMET 69P i would Surprised now the odds on that would probably be thousands to one but as i wouldn't be here to pick up my winnings WHAT's THE POINT? if you can get this bet TAKE IT...it's TRUE!

I think i'll leave that EUROVISION BET though Laughing unless we can get odds for the UK finishing LAST (even if Ed Sheran was doing it for us Innocent)

The PERU v DENMARK draw seems like the one i might plum for? $100 at 23/10 returns $330 ($230 profit)

Anything GOOD i'm missing ?

Thanks Fellas.

Vaskar first...it's no biggie Vas, just wanted a few more ideas here, like Chris (Cryptic) said if you have any good ideas please post them here for all to see, who knows we might all like to have a go at it?

Ken...i was curious about your suggestions of the SPLIT, this is something i would almost certainly do given the chance.
So out of curiosity (and just to confirm it) i checked this out just to see if this was possible? sadly it is NOT, this is a one off all in bet which is why i am thinking over the horse races (with each way allowed) or the Golf Open (e/w to 5 places with 888)

I'm not greedy, so any kind of actual money win will be good with me.
Sounds like your fancy Peru like me...although i still have a sneaky feeling for the draw in that first game with Denmark but the friendlies on Friday might sway me as it sees Sweden vs Peru & Denmark vs Mexico, i am also curious to see how Tunisia go against Spain.

LOVE the bold bet of PERU to win at 150/1 & i would say i'd LOVE to see you win it Ken but i'd be lying as i'm backing & seriously hoping England could do it.
A nice payout should it come off though, $750 plus your stake back (never forget that Smile) but i just can't see it, they are in super form & could end up (if they shock France & top this group) in the easier top half of the KO draw & that route opens up for them all the way to a possible Semi-Final or even Final but at these stages surely they'll find one of the teams just too good for them?

Interesting bet though Ken...GOOD LUCK with it...they are one of the Dark Horses.

BRAZIL saver (is wise) they have every chance along with SPAIN & yet why do i get a sense that these two slightly unfancied teams (England & Belgium or at least one of them...hopefully England) might just make it all the way....maybe we are a computer programme & we've done this before & my memory is charged up & remembering us winning it in 2018 Laughing

Come on Vaskar give us your ideas of what you might do with such a free bet?
We're curious & it's why i opened this thread...thought it might be fun & provide interesting reading.

I'm still thinking at just over 2/1 for the draw between Peru & Denmark that this might be the one for me unless i go ultra safe with the Harry Kane to bag more than 2.5 goals for the tourney? surely he'll do this if he don't get injured? but it's odds on...so it's not too adventurous.

Still thinking things over...not gonna rush it but it's probably going on The World Cup.

Hi Paul, I am studying some extravagant bets for the world cup. and that would likely to finishafter the 10th or 11th, after the friendlies have done. I think I will be able to post them after that. The reason I told you to DM me is because I know that after publishing the bets the prices will be hammered, as the study is being carried on withing a group of bettors. I will post the bets later here of course, but if you can DM me, i will send you that early. 

Sorry, but the decision is made only to protect the price for the group members.

Hi Vaskar,

Interesting, i know of syndicates & betters like this, many of who cover the more shall we say unlikely bets...when they pay off...they really pay off BIG TIME.


I shall wait with great interest here to see what you come up with but i am looking for bets which are more likely to pay off.


I have many ideas of long shots & have often gone against the grain (case in point SAXON WARRIOR in the recent DERBY...said to be a sure thing but a few, myself included figured he might just be lacking in the stamina needed & so it proved as he could only manage 4th, sadly my slight outsider didn't quiet make it either)
Have won on a good number of outsiders ranging from 16-1 to 40-1 & even backed a 100-1 winner not too long ago with 888.

But i will not be using this considerable free bet on the likes of big outsiders or riskier bets.

I want something with a good chance of paying off...if it does & i win a decent amount then i can always bet on the more risky bets later with the winnings Smile


Look forward to your ideas Vaskar...post 'em here when you can, no real rush, the free bet don't does not expire until the 26th June (so i have nearly 3 weeks to make it)

Still fancy that draw with Peru v Denmark perhaps with a real cash saver of Peru winning (like Ken at the moment i can't see Peru losing this one but also Denmark tend to spoil teams opening games by getting draws against them)

Paul, Thanks for the appreciatiation. But I think you misunderstood me. The things we are trying to figure out is not something to earn a HUGE amount (Obviously if you combine those in an acca, The payout would be HUGE if the comes in). But the thing we are studyin is to find out some almost sure things with nice odds (as there is nothing sure when it comes to betting). Can I ask you one thing though? What is the least profit you are expecting from your $100 free bet? you understand that if you win a bet of 3.00 odds you will make a profit of 200$. So what odd you are looking at?
