Cant believe Ronaldo is back at man United!
When I first saw your post, I thought you'd got a spelling error!!!! And then I looked on the BBC and saw it was true!!!! Wow!!!

I still want to smash his face in because of what he did to Wayne Rooney during that World Cup, but no doubting his ability as a footballer (shame he isn't as good a man)

I said the same to the wife. I’m “meh” about man United but he’s an amazing footballer to watch just like Henry was for Arsenal!

Hi!
MB newbie here. Could anyone help me with this quick query please.

I have been following an online step by step guide for dummies the last couple of weeks. And just done the Ladbroke opening welcome bet. Bet £5 get £20 free bets.
However I also had all these free bets turn up in my Ladbroke account which the MB guide didn't say would happen.

Are these free bets legit to use in the same way as the opening free bet does anyone know? And any terms and cons I need to be aware of?

If you click on the (I) icons what does it say?

they look like regular back’n’lay while setting the calculator to SNR from the screenshot but it’s always good to check the T&Cs

Looks like you bet £5... Then received 6 x £5 free bets as part of their welcome offer.
The text next to the "I" icon states the offer.
Maybe you signed up via a special link for £30 in free bets? because Ladbrokes website shows bet £5 get £20 free bets.

I signed up using the bet £5 get £20 free bets. But all these bets in the picture there appeared in my account at the same time. So I'm a bit confused. I have already used the £20 free bets.

It just says this under the (I) Screenshot_20210828_084757_com.android.chrome.jpg

If you're a new customer with Ladbrokes I see no harm in going on Live Chat and asking them how you can use the free bets

I assume that is said as a joke. The good work he does off the pitch compared to Rooney being found drunk all over the place and cheating on his wife.

Agree. Rooney I always feel is just a few steps away from having a Gazza type of post footballing career

Seems the link in the email is the way to go. The Bet Target website offer is the other way around.

I wonder how long I will last at this one.

Betway have boosted Stradivarius (14.40 Donc) odds to 2.0. Lay is 1.45

Good if you can get £10 on.

BetUK restricted my account on March 20 2020. I kept the email.

"Following a review of your account, we regret to inform you that we have removed your eligibility for any Sports Betting offers and promotions at BetUK.com and on any linked accounts.

This decision was based on activity that was deemed to target our promotions or bonuses in a way other than their intended purpose"

O.K. I'm not arguing about that. I stopped using them, (their odds are poor ) and forgot about them.

Three weeks ago they sent an email inviting me to bet £10 for a £5 free bet. Ignored by me. Obviously a mistake and no way would they give me the free bet.
Two weeks ago same invite and once again ignored.
But when again last week I get the same invite I thought Oh what the heck. I'll give it a go.

No free bet received, so made contact by email. At first they said I needed to place a 4 fold multi by mobile at min odds 1.3 per leg.
Not so, my dear BetUK, I quoted the invite back to them - "Once your £10 bet has settled, you'll receive a £5 bet to use on any sport, at any odds!"

To give them credit at least they have engaged with me and not just ignored my emails, as some operators might.
They apologised and have credited me with a £5 free bet.
However, despite my good fortune I think they are an incompetent bookie and in no way do I recommend them.
I may well hear further from them in the future.

This happens a lot. Bookies gub you but dont remove your name from their marketing list for promotions so you still get the emails advertising their offers. Usually there is a clause in the T&Cs that say customers previously excluded from offers wont get the bonus.

Odd that there was such a gap between you hearing from them though and it does sound like a come back and bet with us again type offer, so maybe they have ungubbed you in this case.

My desperation/addiction knows no bounds. Here's an example to how low I've sunk.

There is a small arb in a market of the Wealdstone v Solihull Moors match today.
Over 3.5 goals boosted at Unibet to 4.5. I am allowed £4.64
Under 3.5 is 1.31 at 10bet so I bet £15.91. Return is £20.88 either way, for 33p profit.
