188bet were doing a risk-free offer of £25. However, I had trouble depositing money and accidently ended up depositing £50 rather than £35.
I bet £25 that the correct score in the match between Sporting Lisbon and FC Metalist Kharkiv would be 1-2 at odds of 15 and placed a lay of £20.65 against a 3-2 score at odds of 17. Thankfully I lost this bet so received a payout of £19.64, leaving me with a loss of £5.36. Poor effort...
I then contacted 188bet about withdrawing the remaining £25 of my own money but was told that I must bet it before withdrawing it. I bet £25 that the correct score in the match between Schalke and Athletic Bilbao would be 2-2 at odds of 15, and placed a lay of £25.08 against a 2-2- result at odds of 15. However, I won this bet so received a payout of £375.00 at 188bet but paid out a liability of £351.12 at Betfair, leaving me with a small loss of £1.12.
I then received a £25 refund into my account. I bet £25 that the correct score in the match between Chesterfield and Wycombe Wanderers would be 2-2 at odds of 15 and placed a lay of £25.77 against a 2-2 score at odds of 14.5. I lost this bet so received a payout of £24.51 at Betfair.
Profit from this chapter: £24.51 - £5.36 - £1.12 = £18.03
Overall profit: £704.61 + £18.03 = £722.64
