Thursday’s World Cup game in Nizhny Novgorod is between the two sides who were expected to progress comfortably from Group D at the end of the first phase. However, Argentina’s lacklustre performance against Iceland at the weekend saw them come away with a 1-1 draw and this match against Croatia could be seen as a ‘must win’ for Lionel Messi and co.
Croatia top Group D following their 2-0 victory over Nigeria and while they are the outside bet for Thursday’s game, the eastern Europeans are getting plenty of support in the betting markets. Depending on your own prediction, this new customer promotion* could offer the best time to sign up with 888Sport.

Either / Or
Under the terms of this deal, you can either back Argentina and get a price boost of 10/1 or, you can plump for the Croatians and double that up to 20/1. Those are excellent increases and they compare extremely well with the standard betting.
Currently, Argentina are odds on favourites with the majority of outlets but you can take those figures over the Even Money mark with Black Type, who have the top industry price of 11/10. Meanwhile, Croatia are available at a best of 16/5 with MarathonBet and we should just mention the draw which is quoted at best odds of 63/25 with MarathonBet once again.
Those are the numbers involved so, if you have made a decision and are happy to proceed with this offer, here’s what you need to do.
As this offer is only open to new 888 customers, you must firstly complete sign up if you don’t already hold an account here. Registration is fast and straightforward and within five minutes you should be validated and officially welcomed on board.
From here, it’s time to cover the bet: Make an initial deposit of £10.00 but please use a debit or credit card as 888Sport exclude their eWallet providers from this particular offer. Finally, remember to input the Promo Code 888ODDS when prompted to do so and then you’re good to go.
Making the Bet
Check that the amount of your deposit is showing in your account and then stake the fixed sum of £5.00 on either Argentina or Croatia to win when the teams meet in Nizhny Novgorod on Thursday June 21, 2018.
The match kicks off at 7pm UK time and is covered live by the BBC if you want to watch it all unfold. Irrespective of that, if you’ve made a correct call at the end of 90 minutes, payment comes back to you in a two part process as follows:
Initially, a profit will be paid in cash based on 888Sport’s standard market price for the winning team. This will be followed within 72 hours by free bet tokens which will take you up to whichever of those two price increases is applicable.
That’s a full summary of the main points of this offer but all the terms and conditions are readily available on the 888Sport promotions page. Finally, please note that those free bet tokens must be used within 7 days or they will expire.
Who to Choose
Picking a winning team may be the toughest part of this offer: Argentina are hot favourites but it seems they need Lionel Messi to shine if they are to take the points. Croatia, meanwhile, are more of a workmanlike side who are tough to break down.
It’s over to you but if you are new to 888 and you make the correct call, generously enhanced profits await.
