Bookmaker Bet365 have announced that anyone placing a pre-match bet on England's Euro 2012 quarter final match against the Azzurri on Sunday will receive a risk-free bet of the same value as your biggest pre-match bet, up to £50, to be used in-play.
This offer is not just reserved for new customers though, any Bet365 customer, new or existing, is able to take advantage of this special offer. If you haven't got a Bet365 account, you can sign up here.
With dozens of markets available in-play including match result, cards, corners, next goalscorer and many more, there's something for everyone, no matter what your opinion is on the game. Often it's possible to lock in a profit in-play.
For example, if you back England to win and they score the first goal, you can use the free bet to back Italy and the draw (double chance) and ensure a profit whatever the outcome.
If the second bet wins, you have covered your initial bet but if your in-play bet on the double chance losses, you'll be refunded your stake after the game and your pre-match bet will be settled as a winner.
Or if you're extra confident on your initial selection, why not use the free in-play bet to double your potential winnings without staking any more on the market.
For example, if you have backed Italy to win the game, staking £20, you can use your in-play bet of £20 to back the Azzurri and more than double your potential return, safe in the knowledge that if Italy don't win, you will only lose your pre-match stake.
This offer is on top of Bet365's £200 in free bets on all new customers' first deposits, so there's never been a better time to open your account and take advantage of these two great promotions ahead of one of the most eagerly anticipated matches of the tournament so far.
England are currently slight favourites with Bet365, Roy Hodgson's side are available at 7/4 (2.75) to win the match in 90 minutes or 10/11 (1.91) to qualify for the semi-finals. Italy are slight underdogs, priced at 15/8 (2.88) to win the match or 19/20 (1.95) to qualify for the next round.
Sign up with Bet365 here to take advantage of a bankroll boost of £200 for all new customers and a £50 free in-play bet for new and existing customers.
