You may have seen adverts on TV for William Hill’s Bet Boost, but what exactly is it?
We will take a look here at what it is, how it works and how you can set it up to make some risk-free cash for yourself.
What is William Hill’s Bet Boost?
William Hill Bet Boost is a special offer that allows you to increase the odds you get on your chosen bet.
Here are the key terms to be aware of are as follows:-
- – Bet Boost is only available via the William Hill mobile site or their new app
– You can only get one bet boost per day
– It is only available on pre-match markets, not in-play
– Cannot be used in conjunction with a free bet
– For full terms and conditions of the Bet Boost offer, please click here.
Here we have a look at an example of the Bet Boost in action.
Make your selection as usual and you will see your bet slip like this:-
Enter your stake as normal.
On this occasion, we are placing a £5 stake on Man Utd to beat Real Madrid.
The standard odds for the selection are 11/4 (i.e. 2.75/1).
However, if you press the Bet Boost you will get the increased odds of 2.96/1, as you can see below:
So if the bet wins, you will receive £19.81 back from your £5 stake rather than £18.75.
How Best to Use the Bet Boost
The Bet Boost is a very useful tool to have in your arsenal so the question is how to make the best of it.
Now you may immediately think that it is a good chance to do some arbing – i.e. when the boosted odds with William Hill are higher than the exchange odds with Betfair.
However, this might not be the best thing to do, as the bookies hate arbing and will limit your account pretty quickly if they catch you doing it.
So instead if may be better to just use the Bet Boost as it is meant to be used. So you may want to take a look at Oddschecker and find instances where William Hill are offering the best odds – or jointly the best odds – on a selection. Then what you can do is use the Bet Boost and you will know you have secured really good value for your bet.
Do that enough times – remember you can use it once per day – and you may well be on to a winner.
