I found this to be a useful earner throughout last season - and it's on again until May.
After the first two plays, a weekly wagering of £25 (min odds 1.50 will be required in order to receive Free Bets but this should be no problem to find no loss or small loss bets.• Free Bet tokens must be claimed and expire after 7 days .
On average I found four correct picks. This first week I found only three, so I get a £3 free bet.
There is an added incentive this season of an extra £5 free bet when 40 correct picks have been reached.

Yes it's a great little earner, especially with the added incentive you mentioned this season. I also got 3 right this weekend just gone. I reckon I got between £60 & £70 in free bets from it last season!

I miss the 888sport offer from a few years back where you chose 3 teams to bet on all season long and get a free £5 bet each week (so £15 in total) - was a great way to make money!

Yeah I remember that. I think it was when they sponsored multiple teams in the Championship. I seem to think they changed it mid season? Probably because of the amount of free bets they were dishing out!

Five correct over the weekend. The three I got wrong were the draws. When I choose Draw I nearly always come unstuck.
£25 per week in bets now req. I've bet £10 on tonight's prem game for a 35p loss, but since have found an asian handicap in Osasuna v Celta Vigo match : Osasuna 0+0.5 is 1.65 , lay is 1.66, so I've placed £15 on for a 21p loss.
That should sort the betting requirements.

I never pick draws, I suppose that reduces my chance at the jackpot perhaps but I love doing it every week. I got 4 this week. I have been doing a £25 bet even on the first two weeks as I felt it fitted with my regular betting pattern with them.

How are you doing with this promotion? I've reached 21 correct picks. Three this past weekend.

Hit the 40 correct results this weekend for an extra £5 free bet.
There was a week when my free bets for that weekend were not credited . After contacting cs a free bet was given to me but I don't think my overall total was adjusted.

I hit 40 last week & got my £5 free bet through on Weds. I've got 3/7 this week, seeing as the Spurs match was off!

Was easier this week with cup matches and extra time included. I'm not surprised there were 204 winners sharing the £8k = £39 each.
Not one of them though. I got seven. Still , £35 free bet is not a bad consolation prize.

Sorry to read that. I'm doing only the Up for 8 promotion in the hope my account will last a little longer. I'm already restricted on their enhanced odds promotions, so keep off other stuff.

Went past 80 correct picks 12-13th march. Needed to remind them, again, before I received the extra £5 free bet.
Not sure if there will be enough weeks to earn another £5 bonus; no comp this coming weekend , for instance, but I'll plug on. I'm up to 88 correct picks. There ought to be a bonus just for that number, really!

Up for eight is on again this season but with drastically reduced rewards.
Gone are the £1 free bets for each correct pick , along with the bonuses for every 40 correct picks.
Correctly pick all eight matches and win or share the £10k - but I was never able to do that.
Seven correct wins £10. An improvement. I did this twice last season.
Six correct wins £5.
Five correct wins £2.
Nothing for any correct picks below five which most people will achieve.
Disappointing. But at least this season the promotion is FREE to enter. There is no weekly betting requirement as previously.

I think your final point is the main positive here. I'll be entering as usual & hoping for the best.

It's the only positive.
Let me put it this way: Last season after all 'expenses' I cleared over £81 from this promotion. This time I reckon I will be lucky if I make £25.
And , as you know, the matches selected for us are the most difficult to predict.

Wolves to win
Leeds 2 : 1 Wolves
Bournemouth to win
Bournemouth 2 : 0 Aston Villa
QPR to win
QPR 3 : 2 Middlesbrough
Swansea to win
Swansea 0 : 3 Blackburn
Reading to win
Reading 2 : 1 Cardiff
Chelsea to win
Everton 0 : 1 Chelsea
Draw
Leicester 2 : 2 Brentford

Coventry to win
Pending Results
Coventry v Rotherham

Number of correct predictions:
5/8

So, 5/7 Really. Postponement means no one is eligible for the 10k.
Five correct picks is above average - but only a £2 free bet for achieving it.
888sport are determined to reduce freebies, it seems.

Geebobuk, you may be lucky if your score was bumped also.

One match was postponed in this week’s Up for 8, which means only 7 games took place. As you scored 5 out of 7 results correctly, we’ve bumped up your score by one – so you will now receive a £5 in Free Bets.
