We’re just about to dispense with the last of the international friendlies and get on with the real business of Russia 2018. We’ve therefore arrived at the point where bookmakers will be releasing a host of new customer offers so this could be a perfect time to register and add another sportsbook to your portfolio.
A number of these deals are already in place but perhaps this offer from Ladbrokes could prove to be the most lucrative of them all. Huge enhanced odds of 50/1* are on the table and for them to pay out, we need England to get out of their group and make it through to the knockout stages.
What are the Chances?
In case you needed any reminding, England have been drawn in Group G along with Belgium, Tunisia and Panama and the Belgians are favourites to win this section at best industry odds of 5/6 with Sport Pesa.
In terms of making it through to the next round, England only have to finish in the top two and the odds in this respect are very favourable. Gareth Southgate’s men are quoted at a top price of 11/8 to win the group and the same bookie has the Three Lions down at a best of just 1/6 to qualify. Looking at all of those figures just helps to underline the potential value in this Ladbrokes offer so we’ll move on and look at the mechanics behind it.
Remember, this is only for new customers to Ladbrokes so, in the first instance you will need to register for a new account. Players can head across from here and sign up using just some very basic information and you will need to input the promo code KNOCKOUT when prompted to do so.
Within a couple of minutes or so your account will be confirmed and you will be taken to the cashier. At this point, add at least £5.00 using a debit or credit card and you can move instantly on to the key point.
Betting and Payment
With money free and ready to use, stake the fixed sum of £1.00 on this opening bet of England to qualify for the knockout phase of Russia 2018. Stake as soon as possible and then wait for England’s group games, starting with the match against Tunisia in Volgograd on June 18.
If, at the end of that group phase, England have made it through to the round of 16, you will be paid out in a two-part process as follows:
Firstly, a profit will be paid in cash based on Ladbrokes’ standard market price for England to qualify and this currently stands at 1/7. That will arrive shortly after settlement while the remainder comes back as free bet tokens within a further 24 hours.
That brings your total profit up to 50/1 but if England do get eliminated at the group stage, a consolation free bet token worth £5.00 will be issued. That completes the full summary of significant terms but you can check all ts and cs as they appear on the Ladbrokes promotions page.
Perhaps the most important game in terms of this promotion takes place in Volgograd on June 18 when England face Tunisia. If England take all three points in that one, they should have a comfortable 90 minutes against minnows Panama and by the time they take on Belgium, their toughest opponents, they should be virtually assured of a place in the round of 16.
It’s not a guarantee of course as England have let us down in the past but the draw looks to have been kind to them this time, so this seems a strong promotion and it comes with exceptional odds for new Ladbrokes customers.
