Join 888Sport for 5/1 Manchester City or 66/1 Schalke 04

This week sees another set of Round of 16 fixtures in the Champions League and once again, two English teams are involved. Last week it was the turn of Spurs and Manchester United and now they give way to Liverpool, followed by Manchester City on Wednesday night.

City’s task would seem to be the most straightforward as they take on a Schalke 04 side who are given little chance by the bookmakers. It would seem to be a simple call but irrespective of who you are backing, this new customer offer from 888Sport is worth a look.

*New customers only. €10 minimum deposit using promo code “888ODDS” required. Qualifying bet must be placed at the normal odds Min bet €5, max bet €5. Extra winnings paid in FREE BETS and added within 72 hrs of qualifying bet settlement. Free bet stakes not included in bet returns. Free bets expire 7 days after credit. This offer may not be combined with any other offer. Deposit balance is available for withdrawal at any time. General deposit method & withdrawal restrictions apply & Full T&C’s apply

Either / Or

Under the terms of this promotion, new players at 888 can either back Manchester City and get enhanced odds of 5/1* or, they can choose to get behind Schalke and lift that all the way up to 66/1. Those figures vary wildly but as we will see, both offer excellent value when compared to the standard betting.

Currently, Manchester City are way out in front and can be picked up at best odds of 3/10 with BetFred for the win. Victory for Schalke is way out at a top price of 11/1 with Ladbrokes and 188Bet while we should also give a mention to the draw which is available at 60/11 with Unibet.

Those are the figures for the win on the night and for this promo to drop in, we need your chosen team to claim victory inside 90 minutes. If you’re happy with those terms, here’s what needs to happen.

888 Sign Up

As we mentioned above, this is an exclusive deal for new customers to 888Sport so you can only proceed if you don’t already hold an account here. If that is the case, you are free to cross over from the link and on the other side you will find a quick and easy set of sign up forms. Fill in the essential personal information and then send it all back across a secure server.

888 will then validate your details and you can expect to be welcomed on board in just a few minutes. We now need some funds to cover that opening bet so click on the deposit button if you aren’t automatically taken to the cashier. When you get there, the first point to note is that the minimum deposit is set at £10.00 so please add this amount or more. Note that the majority of eWallets are excluded at this stage and as a final point, please remember to type in the Promo Code 888ODDS when asked to do so.

In summary, we suggest using a debit or credit card, input the code and add £10.00 or more.

Betting and Getting Paid

You’re now ready to move on to the most important part of the offer. Funds are set to clear straight away and when that happens, you can stake the fixed sum of £5.00 on the team of your choice. Take your pick between Schalke 04 and Manchester City to win and then bet that £5.00 accordingly.

The game itself kicks off in Germany on Wednesday February 20th, kick off 8pm UK time and if, at the end of the night, you’ve made a correct prediction, payment comes back to you as follows:

Profits are paid in two parts with an initial sum coming back to you as cash. This will be based on 888Sport’s standard market price for the win in 90 minutes and it will land right on the final whistle. The balance, up to whichever of those two price boosts applies, will then follow as a series of free bet tokens inside 72 hours.

Do look out for those tokens as they must be used in full within 7 days and while that concludes the main points of this deal, you can check all ts and cs on the 888 offers page if you prefer.

Take Your Pick

The deal is a straightforward one and now it’s over to you to make a choice. You could go for the obvious option and take Manchester City who are hot favourites in the betting or you can opt for an upset and back Schalke to harness home advantage to claim a first leg lead.

The choice is yours and there are generous profits in store for new 888Sport customers who make the right call.
