Betting Special: The best World Cup offers for Brazil 2014

There are plenty of great offers available for both new and existing customers on a number of markets ahead of this summer's tournament in Brazil so don't miss out

World Cup Penalty Payback

The dreaded penalty shootout. The ultimate World Cup heartbreak for fans and punters alike, after watching two sides that couldn't be split over 120 minutes of football. There is, however, a light at the end of the tunnel for any who see their selection knocked out in this fashion.

bet365 will refund losing bets on outright World Cup winner selections if the team you've backed exits the competition on penalties. This offer is open to all customers so there's no need to worry if your selection is on the wrong end of a penalty shootout in the knockout stages.

World Cup Bore Draw Money Back Offer

bet365's Bore Draw refund already returns the stakes of losing wagers on the correct score, half-time/full-time and scorecast markets if the game finishes 0-0, but the online bookmaker have decided to extend the markets for the World Cup. As well as the three current markets any punters who have lost on the first, last or anytime goalscorer markets will have their bets refunded if the game finishes 0-0.

There is no limit on the amount of refunds with these offers so they're seriously worth considering before placing your wagers.

New bet365 customers get a 100% first deposit bonus of up to £200. This is one of the best offers around because it can be broken down into smaller amounts, instead of being used in one lump sum.

For example, someone depositing £50 with an average bet size of £10 would have their initial deposit doubled to £100 and be able to get 10 bets from their initial deposit instead of five.

There's also bet365's in-play free bet offer to look forward to. More details of games that this offer applies to will be released in due course.

Anyone without a bet365 account can sign up for one here to take advantage of all these great offers and a first deposit bonus of up to £200.

Paddy Power

Money back as a free bet if any group stage match ends 0-0

With the group stage matches coming thick and fast it's a big help to punters to have a consistent offer throughout the early stages of the tournament and that's exactly what Paddy Power are offering at this summer's World Cup.

If any World Cup group match ends 0-0, Paddy Power will refund all losing First Goalscorer, Last Goalscorer, Correct Score & Scorecast singles on this match as a free bet.

With this refund covering some of the more popular markets for punters it's worth checking the prices on offer to make sure you're giving yourself the best opportunity to get your stake back if the game ends in a stalemate.

Money Back Specials and Huge Enhanced Prices

Paddy Power will be offering huge price enhancements for new customers throughout the tournament. The offer of 4/1 (5.0) on Neymar to score anytime against Croatia proved costly for the Irish bookmaker and there will be plenty more offers to come as the games come thick and fast over the next month. Details of these offers will be published on the Goal Betting site.

Existing customers can benefit from such offers too, as there will be a seperate set of Money Back Specials available to those who already have a Paddy Power account. The first of which sees money back on First/Last goalscorer, Correct Score and Scorecast bets if Italy beat England in their opening group match.

William Hill

Acca insurance

Like accumulators but worried that one of your selections could let you down? William Hill will refund losing 6-fold+ accas which are let down by one selection as a free bet. This offer is open to all customers and is available online or on mobile.

Headline offers for every World Cup game

William Hill offer enhanced prices on the wincast market for all the biggest games, throughout the season, and that will remain the case for the World Cup. These offers are available to all William Hill customers and will see one wincast bet per side enhanced (e.g Neymar to score anytime and Brazil to win).

New William Hill customers also get £20 free when depositing £10
