With the group phase of this year’s World Cup finally coming to an end, the Round of 16 games are starting to fill up and the knockout stage begins this Saturday. Getting us underway in Sochi are Uruguay and Portugal who experienced mixed fortunes at the start of the tournament.
The Uruguayans finished top of their section, winning all three games and becoming the first side in 20 years to do so without conceding a goal. Portugal, meanwhile, stuttered at the end of the phase, losing points to lowly Iran, but the bookies expect a tight contest on Saturday.
The standard result betting is very close but for those who have yet to sign up with 888Sport, there is a new customer offer* that could provide far greater value.
*New customers only. €10 minimum deposit 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.
Under the terms of the deal, a price boost of 9/1 is up for grabs if either Portugal or Uruguay go through to the quarter finals. You can’t pick both sides but if you make your choice and call correctly, those excellent enhanced odds will be paid out.
In the open markets, the To Qualify betting shows Uruguay as very slight favourites to go through at best odds of 11/12 with 188Bet while Portugal are only just behind at a top price of Even Money with William Hill.
There’s good potential with this offer and if you want to take a closer look, here’s how it works.
Remember, this offer is only for new customers to 888Sport so if you don’t already hold an account here, you are free to take it up. The first step is to head over and complete the registration page; this is a quick and easy form which should be completed in around five minutes or less.
Once that’s done, it’s over to the cashier’s page and at this point, you must fund at least £10.00 which is the minimum deposit set by this deal. Please use a debit or credit card to do this as 888Sport excluded the majority of their eWallets and as a final point to note, remember to input the Promo Code 888ODDS when asked to do so.
That will take care of some very basic preliminaries and you’re now clear to move on to the important stage.
Make Your Choice
Funds should clear straight away and you must then make your choice between Portugal and Uruguay to qualify. Stake the fixed sum of £5.00 on your selection and wait for the outcome of Saturday’s game.
It gets underway in Sochi at 7pm UK time and if, at the end of the night, you have called it correctly, payment works in a two stage process as follows:
In the first instance, a profit will be paid in cash based on 888Sport’s standard market odds for the applicable team. The balance, up to the 9/1 price boost, will then come back to you as a series of free bet tokens within 72 hours.
Those tokens will usually arrive much sooner so please look out for them as they must be used within 7 days and while that is a full summary of the main terms of this offer, you can check all ts and cs on the 888 promotions page if you prefer.
Who to Choose
The hardest part of this offer could lie in picking a winner: Uruguay were so impressive in recording three straight wins but that record may count for nothing in a one off game. Portugal weren’t at their best and will need Cristiano Ronaldo to inspire them as they look for a place in the quarter finals.
It’s over to you but for those who qualify for this deal, a great price boost and the potential for seriously boosted profits are up for grabs.
