Match 5 By Sky Bet

Most betting apps have games giving you the chance to win free bets each week to keep you logging in regularly.

These games have evolved to require you to log in daily to unlock a certain task to activate the offer. These betting competitions are mainly for football and horse racing.

The latest of these types of games to be released is Match 5 by SkyBet. A free-to-play football game. Logging in and playing each weekday could lead to winning up to £20 in free bets each week until the end of the football season.

How to play Match 5 by Sky Bet

The first step to playing this game is logging in and tapping on the Match 5 banner on the Sky Bet home page. Each round starts on a Monday.

Tap on the “Play Match 5” button and the game board will open up showing five tiles – one for each weekday. Tap on the relevant day to reveal three face-down cards. Select one to reveal a Premier League team playing at the weekend.

Repeat each day throughout the week to reveal a maximum of five cards/teams. If a day is forgotten, that one card will remain locked. However, previous teams from the week will still be valid and any future ones will still be able to be unlocked on the relevant day.

What Can You Win With Match 5?

If two or more of the teams revealed go on to win their matches the following weekend, free bets will be awarded. The more teams that win, the higher the amount of free bet awarded:

  • 2 wins – 50p
  • 3 wins – £1
  • 4 wins – £5
  • 5 wins – £20
