Betting: In-play is the order of the day when Spain take on Italy

Bet365's extremely popular offer is back, offering new and exisiting customers a free in-play bet when backing any pre-match market on Sunday's Euro 2012 Group C clash
Sunday sees an intriguing tie as two heavyweights of European football meet in Gdansk. Reigning World and European Champions Spain begin the defence of their title against Cesare Prandelli's Italy and Bet365 have announced that any new or exisiting customer can take advantage of their special in-play offer.

Simply place any pre-match bet on this game and Bet365 will reward all customers who do so with a risk-free bet to be used in-play, to the value to their biggest pre-match bet, up to £50. If your first in-play bet losses, Bet365 will credit the amount back into your account.

For example, if you are backing Spain to win this match with a £10 stake, you can stake another £10 bet on any in-play market from the many options available for this game, safe in the knowledge that if your selection is unsucessful, your stake will be refunded. If it wins, you keep the proceeds.

Whether it's the match result, next goalscorer, number of goals, cards or corners, there are over 100 in-play markets to choose from with Bet365.

You can use this bet anytime during the game so there is time to consider your selection as the action unfolds.

Or, if you're confident in your initial selection, why not use the free bet to double your stake without risk?

This offer has been extremely popular in the past during the Premier League season and has seen millions of pounds refunded to Bet365 customers, so be sure to check out Bet365 before you place your wager on this game.

The same firm are also offering their "Bore Draw" promotion on every Euro 2012 game this summer.

Place a pre-match bet on the first, last, anytime goalscorer, half-time/full-time, correct score or scorecast markets and if the game finishes 0-0, all bets will be refunded.

Bet365 spokesman Steve Freeth commented: “The Bore Draw offer is always popular with our customers and for some reason we’ve had plenty of requests for the bet365 ‘In-Play’ concession during Euro 2012 – can’t think why?!”
