Totesport Joining Offer – Bet £25 Get £25 Free Bet (if your first bet doesn’t win)
Open an account with Totesport using the link below and deposit £25
Step 1: Make sure the odds at the Totesport website are in a decimal format.
Step 2: With this offer, we only get a free bet if our bet doesn’t win so we need to tweak our approach so regardless of the outcome, we make a profit. We therefore place our first bet as Stake Not Returned bet, which means if the bet at Totesport wins, we make a profit, and if the bet loses, we make a small loss but have a free £25 bet.
Open the ‘ODDSMATCHING’ page from the menu at the top of this page. Select Filters on the left hand side (in green).
- Click the Min. Odds box (a tick should appear) then type 4.0 in the box below (higher than a normal qualifying bet, but necessary to ensure we make a profit regardless of the outcome)
- Click the Max. Odds box (a tick should appear) then type 8.0 in the box below
- Click the Limit Bookmaker box (a tick should appear) and from the list select Totesport
- Click the Limit Exchange box (a tick should appear) and from the list select Betfair
- Click Apply (in green) below
- A list of possible options will be shown, ordered by Rating (the higher the Rating, the more profit you will make from this offer – look for 95+ as usual)
- Select your chosen match by clicking the calculator symbol on the far left.
- From the drop down box below Event Information, select Free bet (SNR)
- In Bookmaker Stake, over-type what’s in there with 25.00
- Back Odds and Lay Odds will be pre-populated with the correct odds
- Lay Commission should be 5%
- Click Calculate. In Results, ‘you could lay’ indicates how much you’ll need to place at Betfair (see below for how to do this).
Step 3: Once you’ve entered the above, click Calculate. A table will appear above ‘Calculate’ advising how much your lay bet has to be in Betfair (see “You could lay”). You’ll also need enough in your Betfair account to cover the “Liability will be” amount.
Step 4: If your Totesport bet wins, you’ll receive no free bet but you’ll make money on the bet as you’ll win more than you have staked. If you lose the Totesport bet then Totesport should credit your free bet within 48 hours of your bet being settled. Use exactly the same process in Step 2 to find a close match for your free bet.
Step 5: Go back to Totesport and place your £25 free bet on your chosen event from Step 4 and then at Betfair place your lay bet amount as per the calculator
Done! This offer should make you around £17-20 profit.
