In Scotland, football wouldn’t be the same without an Old Firm Derby around the Christmas Period and the fixture computer has duly obliged. Celtic and Rangers meet in the SPL on Saturday and it’s the one Scottish game which is guaranteed to attract viewers from all over the world.
Naturally this is a big draw for the betting community too so, for those who have yet to sign up with Ladbrokes, a new customer offer with enhanced odds of 33/1 on the table, could be very good news.
Celtic are hot favourites to take the three points in this game but this promotion doesn’t ask you to pick a winner. Instead, those 33/1 odds will drop in if at least one goal is scored when these teams line up on Saturday lunchtime.
In the open markets, the equivalent bet would involve backing over the 0.5 goal line and existing customers of Ladbrokes can get just 1/25 on this outcome. That’s the best price that we could find from around the sportsbooks but it’s still not very exciting so, if you qualify for this offer, here’s what happens next.
Signing up with Ladbrokes
As this is a new customer deal the obvious first step is to sign up for a new account. You can head over via the link and register in a process that will take up around two minutes of your time. Only very basic information is required at this point and the most important point to keep in mind is that you must input the Promo Code DERBY when prompted to do so.
In a very short space of time, the account will be confirmed and then it’s time to make the first deposit. This should be at a minimum level of £5.00, using a debit or credit card and the funds should be made available straight away, making it time to place the bet in question.
Staking and Payouts
The money will show in your account and you can then stake the fixed sum of £1.00 on this special bet of at least one goal being scored when Celtic take on Rangers at Celtic Park on Saturday December 30, 2017.
It’s the lunchtime game with a kick off time of 12:00 Noon and if the bet comes in, payment is in two phases. There will be an initial profit, paid in cash, based on the quoted Ladbrokes book price when the game kicks off. The balance, up to that enhanced odds figure of 33/1, will then be paid as free bet tokens.
There is potential for profit even if this bet doesn’t land because, if the match finishes in a goalless draw, a free bet token worth £5.00 will be issued. Free bet tokens will arrive within 24 hours of the game finishing and you then have four days in which to use them before they expire.
These are the main terms of this offer but you can check all of the ts and cs as these are displayed prominently on the Ladbrokes promotion page.
Goals, goals, goals?
Both teams have a healthy scoring record at this stage of the SPL season with league leaders Celtic notching 48 in 21 games so far. Rangers fall under the average of two goals every game but only just as they have recorded 41 in their 21 matches.
Those are good indicators and while we always add that nothing is ever certain, this is another strong promo for new Ladbrokes customers that has the potential to deliver serious profits at the end of the Old Firm Derby.
