MAY 13TH – 15TH 2016

An eventful weekend of special offers from bookies and casinos saw Profit Squad members help themselves to plenty of cash. The standout offer came from Mecca Bingo – their surprising generosity leaving all who attempted it with an almost certain profit.

The deal was that if you deposited £50, they gave you a £45 bonus which only had to be bet once. This really was a terrific offer, as not only do most bonuses conceal large wagering clauses in the their terms – some asking you to stake forty times the bonus amount – but additionally, you didn’t even have to bet a penny of your own cash. You just had to deposit £50 to be awarded an immediate £45 bonus. Then you only had to do £45 worth of spins on any slot, with winnings from every spin going straight to your cash balance, giving this offer an impressive estimated value of approximately £42. Even if you had been incredibly unlucky and won nothing from every single spin, you would still have had your £50 deposit intact and ready to withdraw. This is what Profit Squad is all about: exciting chances of big wins minus the possibility of big losses.

Those already signed up to 888 Sport would have been very pleased with the outcome of the Goals Mean More promotion at the weekend; especially had they chosen Newcastle as one of their teams, the magpies’ five goals resulting in a £15 free bet.

Paddy Power offered their usual in play bets, giving those in the know the opportunity to take a mathematically guaranteed £5 from each match, though they were hit by a surprise in the form of a bomb scare at Old Trafford, leading to the postponement of Man Utd’s match with Bournemouth. Still, at least the Chelsea game went ahead. Backing and laying both pre match and inplay by following the instructions on the Profit Squad calendar meant that it was impossible not to make £5 for about 5 minutes effort – not a bad hourly rate at all!

As if there weren’t already enough opportunities to make some risk free cash, along came a new bookie, Leo Vegas. Previously only offering casino games, they have launched a sportsbook, offering a £30 free bet to new mobile customers. Just to make sure you were able to take that little bit more cash, they also ran a ‘Double the Odds promotion’, in which savvy punters were able to guarantee £10 – £12 regardless of the result.

Betfair Arcade and Casino popped up with some larger than usual slot offers. One such offer asked people to bet £200 for 100 free spins. Offers like this scare newcomers, but those with the experience gained from Profit Squad were able to see that this offer represented value. And invitingly, Betfair offered punters the chance to simply stake £10 for 5 free spins, allowing them the chance to incrementally stake more to get more free spins, meaning those with smaller banks or nervous at attempting such large offers were able to get involved knowing they could bow out half way without compromising on value if things weren’t going well. By sticking to minimum stakes and maximum lines I completed the initial wagering for this offer with just £16 in my Betfair account, and finished -£4. I now have 100 free spins, cumulatively worth £20 to look forward to.

Like every weekend with Profit Squad, the last was very profitable, just as the next will be!
