Risk-free £50 Offer on Arsenal v Man City at Bet365

TITLE hopefuls Arsenal and Man City go head to head tonight – and bet365 have ramped up the excitement by rolling out their popular risk-free £50 inplay bet offer. 

If you place a pre-match bet on the match – up to £50 – which kicks off at 8pm then Bet365 will give you a risk-free in-play bet to the same stake.

How to claim you £50 risk-free bet

To qualify for your risk-free in-play Bet365 bet, simply place a bet of up to £50 before kick-off. Then once the game starts place another bet – of the same stake – on any in-play market.

If your FIRST in-play bet loses Bet365 will refund this stake up to the same value as your largest pre-match bet (max £50).

You can try to do a low-risk pre-match bet and take a chance on the in-play – or do bets that guarantee profit. It’s up to you – but make sure you check the rules before having a bet.

Also, please note the £50 refund is in the form of cash after the match, it does not appear as a free bet in-play. If you are doing the offer and using the max stake of £50, you will need to place bets totaling £100 – that’s £50 pre-match and £50 in-play so make sure you have enough funds in your account. If the in-play bet loses it will then be refunded a couple of hours after full-time.

How to make the most of your risk-free bet

My preference is to place a £50 pre-match bet on over 0.5 match goals at odds of around 1-20. I also cover the 0-0 draw with a bet of around £4 at 14-1 at another bookie. When doing this, bet on the ‘no scorer’ market rather than a 0-0 draw so you get paid if the only goal is an OG.

So for a maximum total spend of around £2 you are then covered to use your risk-free £50 in-play bet to try to win big, e.g. on a first or anytime scorer or correct score.

There are lots of other strategies so share yours here and full T & C’s can be found by simply clicking the link in bold above.

    Bet365 emailed me last week and said I’m no longer eligible for in play offers or promotions after a review of my account.
    Wouldn’t give me a reason why.

    Always done £50 on over 0.5
    £50 in play on something
    And covered with no goal scorer with another bookie.

      bigpika, won’t be to do with the offer – it will your general betting patterns.
      Someone commented about this last week but admitted they only used bet365 for the offers.

        I used the account for normal bets to, but clearly not often enough.

        If I started using the account more often would I get the offers back?

        Can’t really remember. Had the account about 2 years, so when every the offer was on I done it.

          Open an account in your Mrs’ name, and fund it with a different card or paypal account. That way you can still make use of the offer!

    Gutted that Paddy have stopped doing the free £10 inplay on these games, makes for a tidy profit on the draw too.

    Nick! As bastino said, lay the 3rd bet at WH & get 10 in play ( December only btw)

    Placing £50 on Arsenal or draw pre-bet at odds of 19/50 and then placing an in-play bet of £50 on man city to win at 21/10 will gaurentee profit.
    If arsenal win or the game is a draw then you’ll receive £69 from ur original £50 bet plus the refund of £50 from the inplay bet leaving a profit of £19.
    If man city win you’ll receive £155 leaving you a profit of £55.

    • Profile photo of richb20806
      richb20806 2 years ago

      Prob is the terms and conditions state this isn’t allowed. The chances of them stopping you or invoking the terms are low but possible.

    Good morning folks. I noticed today that Ladbrokes have an offer on the Arsenal City game also.

    If both teams score they will refund up to 25.00 as free bets.

    Does anyone have any strategies to use this in conjunction with the bet 365 offer to maximize guaranteed profit?

    I did the Man United Wolfsburg double chance before kick off, with a bet on the draw in play a few weeks back. Not thrilling but paid a solid 15.00. Thinking of doing the same tonight at bet 365 and just wondering how to incorporate the second offer at Ladbrokes to spice it up a bit.

    Any thoughts / recommendations greatly appreciated.

    Best way I think is Arsenal/ City win before Ko then 50 on draw straight after kick off! If either team win you get £15 profit if it’s a draw which is very likely in this game you get £125 profit!

    • Profile photo of richb20806
      richb20806 2 years ago

      This is ideal… But breaches the t’s and c’s so ultimately they coould void the offer mid play which is a risk

      • Profile photo of Mr Fixit
        Mr Fixit 2 years ago

        richb202086, we’ve said before bet365 turn a blind eye to the terms and conditions.
        This is a reward for customers – if you bet normally they’ll let you guarantee profit.

        • Profile photo of richb20806
          richb20806 2 years ago

          I’ll remember that for next time then. Gone on my usual boring £50 on over 0.5 on b365. Covered with £3.50 on under 0.5 on skybet and just going to decide what to do with the the risk free. Wish I’d waited and done this now as its better lol

      • Profile photo of dafsmith

        Richb they wont void this i’ve done it every single time! And with this bet it’s got draw written all over it!

    • Profile photo of niwintz

      Will it not be £75 profit for a draw as you will have put on £100 and got £175 back?

    Bigpika have you self excluded yourself at any point from any markets on 365 Sports, Casino etc ?? If so you get automatically removed from any offers available.

    • Profile photo of bigpika
      bigpika 2 years ago

      No haven’t done that.

      Find it a bit unfair to be honest, I’ve used it for offers like everybody else, but I’ve also used it for normal bets like any other betting account.

    I’m doing 50 on home pays 120
    38 on st ladbrokes away pays 118
    Then 50 on draw in play pays 170
    So if I’m right if home wins 38 profit away 30 profit draw 32 ish as odds may change

    I am sure they do these offers as a customer retention strategy and if by some chance one of the traders is having a bad day is when accounts may be monitored more closely. $ods law that is

    Big question is what to do with the risk free £50 in play.

    Usually do BTTS unless it’s Bayern and its either lewo or muller ATGS.

    It’s either going to be a 0-0 boring right affair or if there are goals then I think BTTS is a cert.

    Other considerations

    Giroud ATGS
    Aguero ATGS (if he plays)

  12. Profile photo of jdhyam1
    jdhyam1 2 years ago

    I’m debating whether to be boring or go for it a bit.

    For boring i’m thinking:
    £50 on Arsenal prematch
    £50 on Draw inplay
    £25 on Man City with Ladbrokes (refunded if btts)

    So if Arsenal win i guarantee 45 profit, 75 profit if Man city score too.
    If draw I guarantee 50 profit, 75 if btts
    If City win I just break even.

    If not I think i’ll do the over 0.5, cover no goalscorer and then lump the 50 on a score draw.

    Lads, back Kompany for FGS, he won’t play 100%. This means bet365 refund your pre-match bet without the need to cover with another bookies. I always look for a player that won’t play. Works ever time and leaves you with a free inplay bet that will also be refunded should it lose :)

    • Profile photo of Mr Fixit
      Mr Fixit 2 years ago

      wolverine, it may have worked every time for you but for anyone going down that route I’d advise they check it’s not voided before placing their second bet.
      Several people have commented before about it happening to them.

  14. Profile photo of kabed

    Usual safety-first approach from me.

    B365. £50 on Arsenal @ 2.40 = £120.00. Profit of £40.00 (£120 less £80 stakes)

    WH. £30 on Man City @ 3.10 = £93.00. Profit of £14.00 (£93 less £80 stakes)…plus ….
    WH. 1 x in play free bet of £10 on City @ 3.10 = £31.00 less £10 stake = £21.00.
    Combined profit on both WH bets: £35.

    B365. £50 on draw @ 3.50 = £175.00. Profit of £45.00

  15. Profile photo of dancingbrave
    dancingbrave 2 years ago

    Can someone double check this for me if they have time…..

    £50 on Arsenal at B365 to return £120
    £25 on City at Ladbrokes to return £75 (Money back if draw or Arsenal win and both teams score)
    £20 on City at Hills to return £62 (qualifies for free £10 in-play)

    £50 in-play on draw at B365 to return £175
    £10 free in-play on draw at Hills to return £24

    Total outlay £145

    Option 1 – Arsenal win – £120 returned on the win side plus £50 in-play refunded – total return £170 (Profit £25) if both teams score profit is £50 as Ladbrokes will return stake)
    Option 2 – City win – £137 returned on the win side plus £50 in-play refunded – total return £187 (Profit £42)
    Option 3 – Draw – £199 returned on the win side (Profit £54 or £79 if both teams score as Ladbrokes will return stake)

    Am I missing something?

    I’ll be doing the +0.5 and covering with 0-0 on skybet at 14/1.

    Inplay I’ll be on Ramsey anytime. Currently 10/3.

    Looks good to me. I have checked through your plan three times and it seems pretty robust in my opinion. Best of luck to you my friend.

  18. Profile photo of kabed
    kabed 2 years ago


    With a slight modification to your plan, you could put your WH free bet on Arsenal to level out your profit possibilities.
    i.e. Arsenal win: Profit £39 – Man City win: Profit £42 – Draw: £30 or £55.

    Just a thought….

    Bet365 Offer – My bets.

    Place the In Play bet just after kick off and enjoy the game. Make sure you have enough cash in the Bet365 account for the second bet. Today that is a total of £112

    How it works. Bet365 will match any pre match bet up to £50 with an in-play bet of the same amount. This means that you can cover all 3 results and guarantee a profit whatever happens.


    £62 Arsenal – Bet365 – 13/8

    £10 Draw – Betfair/Boylesports – 5/2

    £46 Man City – BetVictor – 11/5

    In Play

    £50 Draw – Bet365 – I’ve assumed 9/4 as the price is likely to shorten at kick off.

    If the draw bet loses, Bet365 will refund the £50 in cash by tomorrow. The total outlay is £168 although there will be a profit of at least £28 on ANY result.

    Enjoy the game !!

          No worries wasn’t worth the risk of letting City getting another which they should have i’m gutted! How much was your full return if no cash out? Can’t fault £380 anyway!

        Mr.F ……Sorry my last reply was misleading as i didn’t cash out in the end , was too busy watching the game ,checking the cash out and refreshing this page to look for a reply !

        i was thanking dafsmith for his reply , in the end the i was poised over the cash out watching the game and time ran out

    Yeah bigpika i got the same email last week from bet365 . Fair enough but i have betted (is that a word?) with them , albeit infrequently, other than their offers. I’m probably not even in profit with them as i have lost my stake on a couple of the offers by not covering the 0-0 – Manchester Derby springs to mind. So while i understand why their reasoning it also seems a bit petty.
