Beat Sky Bet
We hate unethical bookies that want to have their cake and eat it by targeting losing customers for as much as they can, whilst dramatically reducing the business they take from those with a modicum of ability.
It’s the ultimate ‘heads I win, tails you lose’ business, and Sky Bet is a typical bookmaker.
The below interview to ex Skybet CEO Richard Flint gives you some good insight into the bookmaker’s attitude towards the smart punters, and account restrictions which include Sports Arbitrage, Oddschecker & Ungubbing, etc. (The video is 11+ minutes long though you may start from 5 minutes for the Account restriction topics);
It’s rare to have such a terrible Trustpilot score among established bookmakers as below;
Sky Bet Juicy Offers List
So, don’t waste your time grumbling, instead, exploit Sky Bet’s offers to get risk-free profits as much & long as possible before Sky Bet restricts your account.
Sky Bet Offers 1 – New Customer Free Bets No Deposit Needed
Our underlying method is matched betting.
I will construct it using this Sky Bet new customer offer to show you how it works, which would be a brief summary for you to understand the overall concept.
For specific step-by-step instructions, take a look at Matched Betting Specific Process Between Sky Bet & Smarkets later in this section.
For those who are not familiar with matched betting, suggest taking a look at Matched Betting For Dummies where you will find every basic of matched betting.
What we do are;
- 2 transactions of Back (bet on win) £5 on Team or Player A at odds of 2.0 < at Sky Bet & Lay (bet on NOT win) appropriate £ (stake can be calculated by free software) on the same Team or Player A at Betting Exchange like Betfair (you may want to use Betfair Alternatives) or Smarkets so that you cover all outcomes.
- Regardless of the outcome, your losing & winning will cancel out each other. In real practice, usually, 2 bets are not perfectly offset due to the odds difference & exchange commission. Therefore you make a small loss called Qualifying Loss.
- But now, you get £20 Free Bets. You repeat the exact same process but use the free bet for the back bet at Sky Bet. Then, this time free bet value (minus qualifying loss) will become your net profit.
- You may be able to extract around £15 – 18 pure profit from this offer Without Any Single Risk.
- The success factor is how to minimize the qualifying loss by selecting the player whose odds gap (between Sky Bet & Betting Exchange) is the narrowest. You can use Free Odds Matcher to locate such opportunities. For the step-by-step process, take a look at Risk-Free Betting Starting Guide (3) – How To Extract Profit from Free Bet. You will see William Hill’s sign-up bonus case as an example in this instruction.
When it comes to betting exchanges, there are 4 betting established betting exchanges as below;

Sky Bet Offers 2 – Weekly Sky Bet Club
This is the offer that provides you with a guaranteed profit every week (see the list of other bookmakers’ free bet clubs);
How it works is actually very simple,
- Simply bet a total of £25 at odds of Evens (or greater) before 23:59 on Sunday each week during the promotional period.
- Free bets will be credited to qualifying accounts on Mondays (by 7 pm GMT).
- Free bet stakes are not included in any returns.
- Max free bet per customer/household / IP address / per qualifying week is £5
- Your £5 free bet will expire at 23:59:59 on the following Sunday after being credited.
- Subject to the above you will remain in the promotion and will receive a £5 free bet every week during the promotional period so long as you continue to qualify before 23:59 on each Sunday.
It’s a no-brainer, just implement standard matched betting. You can follow Matched Bet Starting Guide (2).
Usually, when we place a qualifying bet we may incur around 2-5% loss if we lose 5% of the £25 qualifying bet will lose around £1 and the cash value of the Free Bet is around 80% means £5 x 80% = £4, then your final profit will become £3.
But as long as you combine the ongoing promotions wisely you can retain the original value or even make it better. So don’t forget your bet placements on the following Sky Bet Offers 3 & 4 which you can also lock in profit can qualify for this Weekly Sky Bet Club.
Sky Bet Offers 3 – Soccer Treble Special Price Boost
Sky Bet offers multiple (usually treble) prices boosts almost every week (usually Saturday) during football season. The below EPL (English Premier League) Multiples Price Boost is just an example;
When it comes to multiple bets, Betfair or Matchbook (Go “Enhanced Specials” section) usually provides lay markets up to Treble.
And usually, Sky Bet Offers Treble. This means you have large chances to find arbitrage opportunities due to the price boost like;
Alternatively use Smarkets Custom Lay Multiples – Easiest Way to Lay Acca.
So, back odds are 7 while lay odds are 6, which is an arbitrage condition that means you can create Risk-Free Odds as;
So you will get a guaranteed profit of nearly £3 from it, and you have already satisfied the Sky Bet Club requirement for this week.
Alternatively, you can Maximise your Potential Profit under Risk-Free conditions by doing Underlay as below;
As seen from the calculator, you can adjust the lay stake bar up to the Break-Even level if the exchange lay bet wins.
Then you see the maximum profit of £18.35 in this case, which means you can expect a potential £18.35 with Risk-Free (no loss). You can calculate the lay stake manually, simply dividing £25 (back stake) by 95% (100% – Betfair Commission 5%) = £26.31

Sky Bet offers another guaranteed profit in Horse Racing, called 1st ITV Racing Money Back;
ITV broadcast horse racing Saturday afternoon. And Sky Bet Offers often 2nd & 3rd, occasionally up to 4th finishes refund.
We can lock in a profit in the above Aintree’s race. The favourite 4 top horses’ odds are;
And Smarket (Exchange) odds are;
These lay odds are pretty early stage and thus quite poor (the best & true odds would be around 10 minutes before the race start). However, even with such poor odds, if we chose Ucello Conti, and use Lock-In Calculator, the expected outcome will be;
We can lock in £1.8 profit from it.
Please go to 2nd Place Refund Horse Betting Calculator For A Guaranteed Profit, for further details including the lock-in customized spreadsheet you can download FREE.

I strongly suggest you take a look at 10 Horse Racing Refund Offers – Value-Based Best Selection & Tactics To Win, where we show how to gauge the value, prioritize & select the popular offers together with the specific tactics summary to extract cash from them.
Sky Bet Offers 5 – “RequestABet”
Finally, Sky Bet regularly make special promotion in “RequestABet”. This is the market Sky Bet allows you to mix and match markets to create your own unique bet and then request a price. The offer is often in the form of a free bet like “Place a £5 (or higher) RequestABet on the match between Arsenal vs Chelsea and we’ll give you a £5 Free Bet “;
You may not be able to lay any RequestABet markets since most of them are quite unique based on the individual punter’s request.
