In the betting slip, enter your £5 stake and click “place bet”. The £5 qualifying bet is now placed with Coral.

A £5 bet on Chelsea at 1.50 returns £7.50 (£5 stake, plus £2.50 bet winnings).

Now let’s cover your back bet with a matching lay bet.

Lay your £5 qualifying bet

Go to the Trickybet lay calculator to work out the lay stake.

Enter the following information into the lay calculator:

  • Bet type: Normal Bet/Qualifier/Arb
  • Bet stake: £5
  • Back odds: 1.5
  • Lay odds: 1.51
  • Lay commission: 2%, to account for the Smarkets commission

Finally, click “Calculate/Refresh”

The calculator suggests a lay stake of £5.03 to complete the matched bet.

Go to the match odds market (‘Winner’ at Smarkets) for Chelsea vs. Newcastle at Smarkets.

Smarkets lay bet for Coral matched betting

Lay £5.03 on Chelsea at 1.51, which gives a liability of £2.57.

This represents a £0.07 loss on the £5 qualifying bet, but you have immediately qualified for 4 x £5 free bets with Coral.

So, after completing the £5 qualifying bet the possible outcomes are:

If Chelsea win: plus £7.50 at Coral (£5 stake + £2.50 winnings), minus £2.57 at Smarkets = £0.07 qualifying loss.

If Chelsea do not win: minus £5 at Coral, plus £4.93 at Smarkets (£5.03 winning lay, minus £0.10 commission) = £0.07 qualifying loss

Place your £5 free bets

After placing a £5 qualifying bet, you’ll receive £20 in free bets (4 x £5 free bets).

The four Coral £5 free bets are stake not returned, so use high odds to convert your free bets into cash.

It’s possible to use the 4 x £5 free bets on the same selection four times or find four different selections.

The best odds are usually on football or horse racing. This 8.45 race at Kempton is a prime example. The fourth favourite in the race Sparkalot was available at odds of 5.5.

Go to the Trickybet lay calculator to work out the lay stake. Enter the following information in to the lay calculator:

The calculator suggests a lay stake of £4.11 on Sparkalot at odds of 5.5.

Smarkets lay bet for Coral free bet

Navigate to the 8.45 Kempton race at Smarkets. Lay £4.11 on Sparkalot. The liability of £18.50 is the amount you stand to lose at Smarkets if Sparkalot wins.

The possible outcomes for the free bet are:

If Sparkalot wins: plus £22.50 at Coral, minus £18.50 at Smarkets = £4.00

If Sparkalot does not win: you’ve lost nothing at Coral, as the £5 free bet wasn’t your own money. However, the lay won £4.03 (£4.11 lay stake, minus £0.08 Smarkets commission = £4.03.

Backing and laying means the overall profit is £4.00 from the £5 free bet.

Aim to convert four £5 free bets into £16 cash, minus £0.07 qualifying bet losses, equals £15.93 net profit.

This represents a 79% return from the Coral £20 free bet welcome offer.
