Hearts of Gold

Bookmakers generally get a bad press, and some would say rightly so but every so often something happens to restore your faith and it is only right that we redress the balance and give credit where it is due

When 888Sport said they wanted to help our ongoing fundraising effort, we thought it would be an basic donation via the usual means (here) but oh no they wanted to help big, £500 big!

Yes they popped 5 x £100 free bets into our online account for us to use as we wished and donate the profits to our Manchester 10K appeal for Rainbow Trust.

Naturally there was only one way to deal with this, the bet72 risk free way and we duly matched each of the 5 freebies on selected horses on Thursday afternoon, laying off on Betfair. 5 races, 5 losers, £404.67 (after commission) in risk free profit in our Betfair account, wow. The money is winging it’s way back from Betfair as we type and will be paid in as soon as it hits!

A massive thank you to Roy and all the people over at 888Sport for this extraordinary act of generosity and suffice it to say if you are looking for someone to have a wager then look no further than 888Sport as naturally these folk get a massive thumbs up from bet72.

Hey you can pick up, upto £50 in free bets by opening a new account.

Naturally we have 888Sport in Oddsmatcher so that free £50 sign up offer is all nice and easy and risk free too!

Open an account with 888sport and place a bet of at least £15 and 888sport will then credit your 888sport account with a £15 free bet token.

Place a further 9 bets of at least £15 each, and you will qualify for a second ‘bet bonus’ free bet token of £15.

Place a further 5 bets of at least £15 each, and you will qualify for a yet another ‘bet bonus’ free bet token of £20. Only bets of at least £15 each will count towards your next free bet (bets of a lower value do not affect your entitlement to the offer).
