Ladbrokes’ array of promotions have certainly ended up being generous for punters of late and another could be in the pipeline for Chelsea’s Europa League final with Benfica.
Punters have been able to get their money back as free bets for a host of promotions of late, including two this most recent weekend thanks to the result of the FA Cup final and Tiger Woods winning the Players’ Championship.
All losing correct score, first goalscorers and scorecast bets were refunded for the FA Cup final as Manchester City failed to win the competition, while Woods’ triumph at TPC Sawgrass meant refunds for every losing player.
Add these to similar promotions on a Ronnie O’Sullivan victory at the snooker World Championships and Dawn Approach romping home in the 2000 Guineas and punters have almost not been able to lose.
The latest offer that may appeal to punters is similar to that of the FA Cup final. All losing first scorer, correct score and scorecast bets will again be refunded as free bets if Chelsea fail to lift the trophy.
Oscar Cardozo has scored eight goals in Benfica’s last 10 games with English opposition and six in this season’s competition. He has some appeal at 6/1 to open the scoring in Amsterdam.
Strangely, this final has never finished 1-0 since it was reduced to a one-off game rather than two legs in 1998 and so a 1-0 Benfica triumph can be backed at 9/1, with the scorecast of this outcome with a Cardozo goal available at 40/1.
Punters can back any of these three options with the safety net of knowing that they will see their stakes refunded as a free bet should Chelsea fail to triumph.
