That’s where bet365’s promotion steps in to save the day – if the player you bet on progresses to the next round because of a retirement then bet365 will pay out as a winning bet.

Read on as we explain how bet365’s Tennis Retirement Guarantee promotion works and break down the steps you need to take.

What is the bet365 Tennis Retirement Guarantee Promotion?

Bet365The Tennis Retirement Guarantee promotion is available to new and existing customers and offered across the major grand slams as well as the ongoing men’s and women’s tour matches.

Sign up, deposit between £5* and £10* to your account and bet365 will give you three times that value in Free Bets when you place qualifying bets to the same value and they are settled.

Note: bet365 Tennis Retirement Guarantee Promotion is available to new and existing customers but if you’re new you may as well cash in on the opening bonus as well!

On the face of it this is a fairly straightforward promotion but let’s take a look at the details a little closer. Firstly, and for obvious reasons, the promotion won’t apply to in-match betting! Therefore all bets will need to be placed before the first serve is hit.

Owing to the nature of the promotion, bets can be made on a limited number of markets, namely, the player to win a singles match within the ATP & WTA tours and the grand slams.

An important part of this promotion to know about is how you will be paid if the guarantee kicks in. You will receive your winnings paid as Bet Credits and your stake returned as cash. If your selection is the player who retires hurt then your bet will be voided and stake returned in cash.

If you have selected a qualifying match as part of a Bet Builder and the guarantee promotion is triggered then the accumulator will be voided.
