The last quarter final of this World Cup weekend takes place in Sochi on Saturday evening between host nation Russia and their Eastern European rivals Croatia. Both teams needed penalties to get past their previous opponents and many pundits are expecting an equally close contest here.
It’s a tight call from a betting point of view but if you have picked a winner and have yet to sign up with 888Sport, they have a new customer deal with a generous price boost* on either team to go through.
*New customers only – Minimum deposit of €10 using deposit code 30fb – A qualifying bet is a ‘real money’ stake of at least €10 placed on any sports market – Minimum odds of 1/2 (1.5) – Free bets credited upon qualifying bet settlement and expire after 7 days – Free bet stakes not included in returns – Deposit method and withdrawal restrictions apply.
Pick a Winner
888 have listed price boosts in the To Qualify market of 6/1 for Croatia or 12/1 for Russia. Remember, those are the numbers for either team to go through, irrespective of whether it’s in 90 minutes or via extra time / penalties.
In the open markets, Croatia are favourites to progress at best odds of 11/18 with 188Bet while the Russians are out at a top price of 6/4 with Unibet so clearly there is the potential for great value with this promo. If you want to look at it further, here’s how it works.
888 Sign Up
Remember, this offer is exclusively for new customers to 888Sport so the first step is to set up a new account. You can do that by crossing over from the link where you will find a very basic set of online forms.
These forms will only ask you for essential info about yourself and this initial part of the process should all be complete in around five minutes or less. Now it’s over to the cashier where we need some funds to cover that opening bet.
At this point there are some important things to keep in mind so, please add at least £10.00 which is the minimum set by this offer and remember to input the promo code 888ODDS when asked to do so.
Lastly, we suggest using a debit or credit card to carry this out because the majority of eWallets, including the main providers Skrill and Neteller, are specifically excluded from this promotion. Pick your preferred plastic, add £10.00 or more and you’re ready to move on to the next phase.
Making the Bet
Funds are likely to clear straight away and when that happens, you can make your choice between Russia or Croatia to qualify when they meet in their World Cup quarter final on Saturday July 7, 2018. You can’t opt for both teams so pick a winner and stake the fixed amount of £5.00 on your chosen outcome.
The match takes place in Sochi and comes with a 7pm kick off, UK time, and if, at the end of that match, you have called it correctly, payment will come back to you in two steps as follows:
In the first instance, a profit will be paid in cash based on 888Sport’s standard market price in the To Qualify market. This is set to arrive shortly after the very final whistle and the balance, up to whichever of those two price boosts is applicable, will then come back to you as free bet tokens within 72 hours.
Those tokens will usually arrive much sooner and please look out for them as they must be used within 7 days or they will expire and will not be replaced. That completes a comprehensive round up of the significant points of this offer but if you prefer, you can check the ts and cs in full at the 888Sport promotions page.
Croatia are the favourites and they carried through that 100% record in the groups before squeezing past Denmark in the last round. They also look strong on penalties having dominated that shootout and may therefore be the better bet in a tight contest.
Russia will have no fears having overcome Spain last time out so it could be a tricky call. It’s over to you now but if you qualify as a new 888Sport customer, this is an excellent enhanced offer with the potential for generous boosted profits for those who get behind the right team.
