So the heading for this Betfair promotion is a little text-heavy. The full name for it is “Free Bet Up To £25 When You Win A Football Same Game Multi At 4/1 Or More”. As you can see, it just trips off the tongue!
Why they couldn’t have come up with something a little catchier is beyond me. However, it does exactly what it says on the tin. All you have to do is place a same game multi-bet at combined odds of 4/1 or better on any football match available.
If your bet wins, you’ll get a free bet matching your stake, up to £25.
What Is A Same Game Multi?
This of course is the most important bit of the promotion so handy to know what it actually means. Basically a ‘Same Game Multi’ allows you to build your own acca bets within one match. And there are loads of markets offered.
The same game multi option is displayed in its own section at the top of the betslip. When multiple selections are added, the options to place singles displays as normal below.
To win, each of the different bets in the multi – for example, number of cards, number of corners, number of goals – need to land. If one part of the bet doesn’t land, the bet is a loser.
It works in a similar way to a traditional accumulator, the difference being it’s individual markets within a single event, rather than separate matches.
So now that you know what a multi is, how does it fit into Betfair’s promotion?
Win A Free Bet
This is the easy part. Pick your same game multi and make sure that the overall odds on it are at least 4/1. Anything less than that and it doesn’t qualify.
If you win your multi, you also win a free bet up to £25. That’s because the free bet will match your stake. So if you bet £5 you will get £5. If you wager £10 then you will get £10. You get the drift.
There are two exclusions to this offer. Cashed-out bets do not qualify and neither do Exchange bets. Anything else is fair game.
The good thing is that if you win a free bet you can use it on any sport available on the Betfair sportsbook. And you have seven days to use or it expires.
So there you have it. There’s plenty of football on at the moment so lots of games to choose from. If you put a little bit of research into some of the games you could come up with a couple of decent wagers.
The more research you do then better your chances. Then again, all the research in the world wouldn’t have predicted United getting beaten 1-6 by Spurs or Liverpool conceding seven to Villa!
