888Sport are working hard to become one of the top UK bookmakers and have recently introduced a welcome offer for new customers where they receive £30 in free bets when they sign up. For matched bettors this new customer offer from 888Sport gives the opportunity to make around £21 in guaranteed profit.

Matched Betting Offer Level: EASY

As this is the third offer in our Beginner's Guide to Matched Betting AND because it is very similar to the William Hill offer you have just done we start cutting down a bit on how much help we give you. The training wheels are starting to come off :-).

There are a couple of important differences between this offer and the William Hill offer though that you should take note of! Firstly do not place any bets until you receive a confirmation email from 888Sport and click the relevant link in it. Secondly one of the free bets you receive must be done via mobile.

If you see any changes in a promotional offer's details or terms and conditions then please drop us an email to info@wilddogprofits.com

Step 2 - Deposit and Wait for the Email

If not prompted on registration then please deposit into 888 Sport. 888 Sport is a really great bookmaker for making long-term matched betting profits from. Due to this we highly recommend your first deposit to be £20 or more.

To ensure that you will be eligible for the new customer offer please make your deposit using a UK debit or credit card.

IMPORTANT! After depositing wait for a confirmation email from 888 Sport and click the link in it. Do NOT place any bets until you receive this email and click the link.

Step 3 - Switch to Decimal Odds

After receiving the email from 888 Sport and clicking the required confirmation link login back into 888 Sport and change to decimal odds. (We will let you find it yourself this time! You may have to hunt around a bit to do it).

Have a look around the 888 Sport website and find the football odds (or the sport you prefer to bet on). Leave 888 Sport open in a tab on your browser and proceed to the next step.

Step 4 - The Betting Exchange (Check your Balance!)

You should already be registered with Smarkets by now so please login. Check your balance is at least £50, and remember to #bluebox!

(To complete the entire offer you may need to add more to this balance later depending on whether the lay sides of the Qualifying Bet and first Profit Bet win or not).

Step 5 - The Qualifying Bet

How to do the Qualifying Bet at 888 Sport


Remember:

All Qualifying Matched Bets have two parts - a back (for) bet at the bookmaker and a lay (against) bet at the exchange.

As matched bettors we are always trying to find the closest MATCH possible between the back odds and lay odds for all types of matched bet. 


  • Find a back (for) bet at 888 Sport that is somewhere between the odds of 1.50 and 3.0.
  • We recommend to search for odds first in popular football leagues such as the Premier League and Champions League
  • If you can't find any good odds in the Match Winner (90 minute) Markets, check alternative markets (e.g. both teams to score, under/over goals)
  • Once you have found some potential odds note down the three LOWEST you can find (remembering though that they should all be larger than 1.50)
  • Find a good matching lay (against) bet at Smarkets. Remember #BLUEBOX!
  • Start looking for a good match by using the football game you found at 888 Sport which had the lowest back bet odds
  • Important! Remember in Smarkets to double check the following! Correct Market > Correct Outcome > Lay Odds (Blue Box) > Liquidity
  • If the liquidity is low for the lay odds you are considering to use (i.e. less than £100) then you have to find an alternative game/outcome to bet on
  • If you think you've found a good match between the back and lay odds type them into your Qualifying Bet Calculator to check
  • Important! Remember to double check you are on the Qualifying Bet Calculator and that everything you've typed in is correct
  • If the match between the back odds and lay odds results in a good Qualifying Loss (-0.75p or less) then get ready to place your bets
  • Important! Check that you have enough balance in Smarkets to cover the liability of the lay bet you are about to do. (Smarkets Balance > Liability)
  • PREPARE to place the bets. TYPE IN your back stake (£10) at 888 Sport and then TYPE IN your lay stake (from the calculator) at Smarkets. Don't place the bets yet!
  • Double check you have typed in the correct amounts and that none of the odds have changed (the bookmakers normally inform you if they have).
  • At 888 Sport click place bet and make sure the bet goes through successfully.
  • As soon as 888 Sport confirms the bet go straight to Smarkets and click Place Bet, the button will change to say Confirm Bet and then click that too.
  • At Smarkets go to the section called 'YOUR BETS'. Check that the amount you used for your lay stake has appeared in the column named 'MATCHED'.

CONGRATULATIONS! You've now done the Qualifying Bet!

Once your qualifying bet settles (i.e. when the game or horse race finishes) 888 Sport will release £30's worth of free bets!


As soon as you have done your Qualifying Bet remember to add it into your Wild Dog Profits Tracker.

We also recommend to go over the summary of the settled bet at the bottom of the Qualifying Bet Calculator in order to understand what will happen once the Qualifying Bet settles.

REMEMBER - For our Qualifying Bet we already know BEFORE the game/race even happens exactly what our Qualifying Loss will be and know it will be the SAME LOSS WHATEVER THE OUTCOME of the game/race is. What we don't know is WHERE the money will be moved around to. The bookmaker or the exchange? We can't know this until after the game/race has happened. Anytime the back bet wins then it ends up in the bookmaker. Anytime the lay bet wins it ends up at the exchange.

Step 6 - The Profit Bet

How to do the Profit Bet at 888 Sport


Remember:

All Profit Matched Bets have two parts - a back (for) bet at the bookmaker and a lay (against) bet at the exchange.

As matched bettors we are always trying to find the closest MATCH possible between the back odds and lay odds for all types of matched bet. 


888 Sport provides the free £30 as three separate £10 free bets. We need to do these free bets one at a time, and one of them must be via mobile! We would recommend to do the mobile one first as then it is out of the way and you won't forget.

Click here to open your Profit Bet Calculator ready to do your Profit Matched Bet. 

  • Find a back (for) bet at 888 Sport that is somewhere between the odds of 4.20 and 7.00
  • Remember for free bets the higher the odds and the closer the match the more profit you make. However, how high you can go depends on your balance in Smarkets. Higher odds have a higher liability.
  • We recommend to do your Profit Bets on the same sport you did your Qualifying Bet on
  • If you can't find any good odds in the Match Winner (90 minute) Markets, check alternative markets (e.g. both teams to score, under/over goals)
  • Once you have found some potential odds note down the three HIGHEST you can find (but only go as high as you are able with your Smarkets balance)
  • Find a good matching lay (against) bet at Smarkets. Remember #BLUEBOX!
  • Start looking for a good match by using the football game you found at 888 Sport which had the highest back bet odds
  • Important! Remember in Smarkets to double check the following! Correct Market > Correct Outcome > Lay Odds (Blue Box) > Liquidity
  • If the liquidity is low on the lay odds you are considering (i.e. less than £100) then you have to find an alternative game/outcome to bet on
  • If you think you've found a good match between the back odds and lay odds type them into your Profit Bet Calculator to check
  • Important! Remember to double check you are on the Profit Bet Calculator and that everything you have typed in is correct
  • If the match between the back odds and lay odds results in a good guaranteed profit (73%+ extraction) then get ready to place your bets
  • Important! Check that you have enough balance in Smarkets to cover the liability of the lay bet you are about to do. (Smarkets Balance > Liability)
  • PREPARE to place the bets. SELECT YOUR FREE BET at 888 Sport and TYPE IN your lay stake (from the calculator) at Smarkets. Don't place the bets yet!
  • Double check you've SELECTED YOUR FREE BET; have typed in the correct lay stake amount; and that none of the odds have changed.
  • At 888 Sport click place bet and make sure the free bet goes through successfully. (At some bookmakers you may have to type the free bet stake in for it to go through)
  • As soon as 888 Sport confirms the FREE BET has gone through go straight to Smarkets and click Place Bet, the button will change to say Confirm Bet and then click that too.
  • At Smarkets go to the section called 'YOUR BETS'. Check that the amount you did for your lay stake has appeared in the column named 'MATCHED'.

CONGRATULATIONS! You’ve now done the Profit Bet and are now in profit!

What's more is that there are still TWO more Profit Bets to do with the remaining two £10 free bets from 888 Sport.


As soon as you have done your first Profit Bet remember to add it into your Wild Dog Profits Tracker.

We also recommend to go over the summary of the settled bet at the bottom of the Profit Bet Calculator so that you understand what will happen once the bet settles.

REMEMBER! For the Profit Bet we already know BEFORE the game/race even happens exactly how much profit we've made and know it will be the SAME PROFIT WHATEVER THE OUTCOME of the game/race is. What we don’t know is WHERE the money will be moved around to. The bookmaker or the exchange? We can’t know this until after the game/race has happened. Anytime the free back bet wins then it ends up in the bookmaker. Anytime the lay bet wins it ends up at the exchange.

Step 7 - Repeat Step 6 with your two remaining £10 Free Bets

All you need to do now is go back to the start of Step 6 (the Profit Bet) and repeat the whole process again with your second free £10 bet at 888 Sport.

Then, if you still haven't used your mobile by this point then the third and final free £10 bet from 888 Sport will only be available on mobile.

Don't forget to add both of these Profit Bets to your Wild Dog Profits Tracker.

IMPORTANT TO REMEMBER! Before placing your lay bets check your balance at Smarkets is enough to cover the liability of each lay bet. If it's not you may have to accept a slightly smaller profit for now and use lower odds to do your Profit Bets. As we mentioned before we had to do this when we first started as we just didn't have a large enough float. We would recommend using lower odds rather than withdrawing from 888 Sport if you can.

Congratulations! You've completed another matched betting offer!

After completing all the steps above your tracker should now be showing you the total overall profit you've made from this 888 Sport offer. (If you've found good matches for all your free bets this profit should be at least £21).

Great isn't it?

OUR FINAL TOP TIP FOR 888 SPORT: 

888 Sport is a really great bookmaker for making long-term matched betting profits from. If we look like a good 'mug' punter (someone who places regular bets each week) they just keep giving out the offers (from which we can then extract more guaranteed profits from). Consequently we highly recommend to do at least one Mug Matched Bet on 888 Sport if you can. A Mug Matched Bet is EXACTLY THE SAME as doing a Qualifying Matched Bet. Therefore just follow along Steps 5 above and in your tracker afterwards note it down as a 'Mug Bet' rather than a Qualifying Bet. By doing a Mug Matched Bet you will take another tiny loss (that should ideally be 50p or less) but increase the likelihood of receiving more promotional offers from which you can then make more guaranteed profits from.

Don't forget to check your matched betting email account regularly for promotional offers from 888 Sport!
