As eluded too in my last blog post, Betfair have a brilliant new accounts offer running for the 3rd Test between England and India starting tomorrow (Sunday 27th July).
Anybody opening a new Betfair account through this link can get an enhanced price of 9/1 on England to beat India in the 3rd Test at the Rose/Ageas Bowl in Southampton. The current price on England is 8/5, so this is a massive price enhancement.
This is a new customers only offer, and you will need to use Betfair Promo Code ZEP162 while opening your new account.
The maximum bet (at 9/1) is £10.00, and it must be placed before play starts on Sunday morning at 11am (UK time). This also must be the first bet you place after you open your new Betfair account.
This is a Betfair Sportsbook (Fixed Odds) offer, not the Betting Exchange. If you are after a Betting Exchange account, don’t worry as you can use the Betting Exchange on the same login (Betfair operate a one login system for all platforms). Just complete this offer first, then you can use the Betting Exchange.
Once you have opened your new Betfair account you will need to place your £10.00 on England at the current Sportsbook price (8/5 at the moment). This is normal practise with these sort of offers. You will get paid out at the 8/5 on completion of the Test match (assuming England win), with the remainder of your winnings (the 9/1 price enhancement) paid up within a further 24 hours.
This promises to be a pivotel Test match in the current series. The selectors are giving the players who have got England into this mess, one more chance to get out of it. So at the very least, I expect England to give it a real go and put a good fight – after all, some of these guys could be playing for their futures!
