Football fans aren’t the only ones gearing up and getting excited for the upcoming World Cup in Russia. Online bookmakers are also preparing for the competition, which many thousands of people are sure to have a little bet on. Lots of bookmakers, in fact, are putting together their own special promotions for those punters who are going to place a wager or two on the tournament.
Ladbrokes are one of the bookies who have created a special World Cup offer, money back as a free bet if England are knocked out, to encourage England fans to get behind their team. Read on below to find out exactly how Ladbrokes’ promotion works and how you might take part.
What is the Ladbrokes Money Back if England are Knocked Out Offer?
Ladbrokes are offering punters a free bet worth up to £5, if they bet on England to win the World Cup but the team actually fail to do so. The exact value of the free bet will be equal to the initial stake of the punter’s bet on England, up to a maximum of £5.
The promotion is open to new and existing Ladbrokes customers, and to qualify for the offer all a punter need do is to place a bet on England to win the World Cup before the tournament kicks off on the 14th June. If England then fail to win the competition, a free bet worth the same value as the punter’s stake up to a maximum of £5 will be credited to their account.
The £5 free bet tokens will be credited within 24 hours of England being eliminated from the World Cup and will remain valid to use for four days after crediting. The free bet can be wagered as a single bet on any Ladbrokes sports market but any winnings received will not include the return of the initial stake.
How Does it Work?
It should be obvious by now that Ladbrokes’ offer is one of the simpler World Cup promotions around. As such, it could hardly be easier for new or existing Ladbrokes customers to take part:
- Head over to Ladbrokes and open account if you don’t have one yet!
- Existing or new customers need simply then place a single bet worth up to £5 on England to win the World Cup through the Ladbrokes sportsbook. The bet must be placed before kick-off of the first World Cup match on the 14th June.
- If – and when – England are then knocked out of the World Cup, qualifying punters will receive a free bet token equal in value to their initial bet on England.
- The free bet token will be credited within 24 hours of England being knocked out and will be available for four days to place a single bet on any Ladbrokes sports market.
- Winnings from the free bet will be paid in cash, as normal, but will not include a return of the initial stake.
Terms & Conditions
