With Euro 2016 now almost upon us, there are already a growing number of bookmaker offers and promotions available on the market.
Skybet have a fairly innovative Euros betting offer with their ‘£3 Free Bet Every Time Your Team Wins’ deal.
To take part, all you need do is stake £10 or more on a team to win (or £10 each-way) on their Euro 2016 outright betting market and you’ll receive a £3 free bet EVERY time your team wins a match.
Clearly everyone will have their own favourite ahead of the tournament, but it might be worth considering the group matches before deciding who to bet on using this offer. For example, Spain could very well go all the way in the competition and secure a third straight European Championship, but they’ve been drawn in a group with Croatia, Czech Republic and Turkey. They are by no means three matches they can be counted on to win.
England might present better value for those of a patriotic nature and Roy Hodgson’s team is clearly capable of beating Russia, Wales and Slovakia. You would certainly think that they should qualify for the last 16, but can they be backed with any degree of confidence to give you a run for your money to the latter stages?
On the other hand, pre-tournament favourites and host nation France have what appears to be a favourable draw, with their group games against Romania, Switzerland and Albania all looking very winnable. If they can then progress through the knock-out stages and go on to win the tournament, backing them outright using the Skybet Euro offer could prove to be highly lucrative.
One major benefit of the Skybet Euro 2016 free bet offer is that extra-time and penalties do count as a ‘win’ for the purposes of this promotion, so you would still be in with a shout of a £3 free bet should a game be level on 90-minutes in the knockout stages.
Terms and conditions apply and should be read and fully understood prior to taking part.
