Hi,

so my sign up with Coral went a big wrong and they have me down as signing up via £1 25/1 Joshua to win, if I lose I get a £5 free bet.

I'm not sure what to lay at the exchange as the details of the offer are :

"If your selection wins, you will be paid in cash based on the normal price on site and will have your account topped-up to reflect the enhanced price in free bets. Free bet winnings will expire after 4 days.
Should your bet lose, you will receive £5 in free bets on settlement of the market Free bet tokens will expire 4 days after issue"

I'm not clear on what to put in to the odds calculator because I'm not sure what back odds to put in.
25/1 is decimal odds of 26, but I'm not sure if they're saying that in the case of a win I'll get the current website odds of 1.4 in winnings, plus the balance in free bets.
Therefore I should put 1.4 in the calculator?

BTW The lay odds are 1.47 on Betfair.

I suppose I could not bother laying it off for the sake of £1, I'm either going to win (and get cash and free bets) or lose and £5 free bet.

Thanks!

if I'm honest I wouldn't bother laying this £1 oddball offer!

Thanks. After I'd put the figures into the calculator I did end up thinking there's probably no point in laying it - but it does seem like one way or another I'll end up with some free bets. :)

AJ won, so as expected I got a return (winnings) in cash of 40p, my stake back and the balance in free bets, which is over £24 so actually quite a good result in the end :)
