We have now given ourselves the best possible chance to pick up some free bets. If we had missed a day of logging in we would have lost out on one fixture, as each game is only available to be revealed for the 24 hour period of 2 pm to 1.59 pm the following day.

  1. For full details on gameplay, please refer to our Golden Goals rules .
Using Bet Credits
  1. Free Bets will be paid to your Bet Credits balance following settlement of each qualifying fixture.
  2. Your Bet Credits are non-withdrawable. Any returns from Bet Credits stakes will be added to your Withdrawable Balance but Bet Credits stakes are not included in any returns. For example, a £10 bet placed at odds of 3.00 (2/1) would give a return of £30 (£20 winnings plus £10 stake), whereas a £10 Bet Credits stake placed at odds of 3.00 (2/1) would give a net return of £20, as the £10 Bet Credits stake is not returned.
  3. Stakes can be funded in part by your Bet Credits and part with your Withdrawable Balance; however the Bet Credits element of the stake will not be included in any returns. For example, a £10 bet placed at odds of 2/1 (3.00) which was funded by £5 Bet Credits and £5 cash would give a net return of £25 (£20 winnings plus £5 cash stake) as the £5 Bet Credits stake would not be returned. If a bet is void and has had an opportunity to win (for example, in the event of a push), Bet Credits stakes will not be returned. If a bet is void and has not had an opportunity to win (for example, when a Goalscorer bet is placed on a player who does not then take part in the match), Bet Credits stakes will be returned.
  4. Your Bet Credits will be forfeit and removed if your account is inactive for 90 consecutive days. Making a deposit, placing a Sports bet or participation in any Casino, Games, Poker or Bingo product is deemed as having activity on an account.
  1. The Golden Goals feature is available at the discretion of bet365 and bet365 makes no guarantees regarding its availability. bet365 will not be responsible if the Golden Goals feature is not available for technical reasons.
