For free bet strategy I’m not going to tell you exactly what to place your free bet on since we’re not a tipster site and listening to me on that regard would probably lose you all your money.
We’re also not going to get too much into our strategy for placing the bets because we’ve already covered the basics in our free bet no deposit section.
But 118 have a pretty specific promotion so we’re going to look at how to get the most out of it specifically.
First up you need to understand that we’re looking at best practice long term. You’re still going to deal with variance and have to make the right picks nothing is going to guarantee your free bets win.
We need to place five bets at minimum odds of 1.75. You can change your stake size but it’s going to average out your free bet amount so you want to be betting £50 each if you want the full amount back as a free bet.
You know your minimum odds and stake sizes now you just need to pick your bets and get them placed. You can do all five at once (if you’re depositing £250) or one after the other as they settle. Once you have all your bets settled the free bet will be credited within 24 hours.
Now you swap things up. Your free bet needs to be placed above 1.75 but the stake isn’t returned and you don’t want to make pennies from it.
It is up to you what you bet on and the site will take the stake not being returned into account when it’s showing you the return amount. As a general rule of thumb, however, you usually want to place your free bet at a higher odds to get a better return. Keep it within the limits of common sense and remember you can place it on an accumulator if you’re finding good prices there compare to moderate range single lines.
