Virgin Bet FIVES Ultimate Guide

Virgin Bet FIVES is a free to play game available on their website in which users can get real money for goals scored by footballers awarded to them. This weekly promotion is open to both existing and new members.

We have examined the ins and outs of the game carefully and are ready to provide a comprehensive review. Virgin Bet FIVES is explained in all the detail that you could possibly need to know.

What is Virgin Bet FIVES?

Virgin FIVES is like a minor version of fantasy football. Several betting sites in the UK have fantasy games, but the promotion from Virgin has its own special features.

The main difference is that football players are not chosen manually by yourself but instead for you by blind lottery. You don't have to consider a budget, plan trades or keep an eye on the prospects of hundreds of players. Instead, the computer randomly selects a footballer for your team each weekday.

The players are usually from the English Premier League, but FIVES can also select footballers from international tournaments such as the Womens Euros; it depends on which betting events are available at the time. At the end of this ''fantasy lottery'' you can reveal up to five players by Friday. For each goal they score, a Virgin Bet FIVES participant receives a prize depending on the cash amount on the Fortune Wheel.

In the sweepstake, you get real money into your account, which does not require wagering on sports betting or online casino games. You can spend the money by betting at external linkExternal links are prohibited or withdraw it immediately.

The benefits of the Virgin FIVES promotion are:

  • Available to all registered Virgin Bet users;

  • Free to play: just sign up or log in;

  • No entering requirements, simple full rules

  • No wagering: real cash prizes, not free bets;

  • You don't have to bet, even a qualifying bet is not needed.

All you have to do is visit the promotion page every day and add a new player to your Virgin Bet FIVES list. Among the players who can be added to "your team" will be defenders, midfielders, and strikers. The time available for player selection is indicated on the promotion page.

Here are detailed instructions on how to take part in FIVES.

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes, Virgin Bet FIVES is a free to play game, you do not even need to bet, so you can save your welcome free bets to use in the sportsbook. We can say more: you can get withdrawable cash prizes straight into your account instead of the free bets that you have to wager.

What’s the maximum I can win on Virgin Bet Fives?

There is no maximum winnings limit in the Virgin Bet FIVES promotion. You can win up to £50 each time when your squad players score, the maximum payout is not stated in the bookmaker's rules. If you're very lucky, you can win several hundred pounds every seven days.

What happens If I forget to redeem a player?

Customers only get a new football player when visiting the promotion page every day. If you do not reveal a new player, this space will remain empty. Even so you will still participate in the promotion, but you will have less than five players on your squad. So pick you first player in the day the game starts and then visit site to choose a next player on the following days until you reveal the final player.

What if my player didn’t play or was injured?

If one or more players on your Virgin Bet FIVES roster does not get on the pitch, you simply won't be rewarded for their actions. Substitutions are not possible in the Virgin Bet promo. 

Can I choose other players in my squad?

Customers who want to participate in the FIVES promotion cannot choose players who will be in his squad. All five players are randomly picked and you have no influence on that. So in one week you may get five forwards and in the next seven days you may get five defenders.

When will I claim my win?

The bookmaker Virgin Bet pays out a certain amount each time a player from your team scores a goal. The cash bonus is credited to your account within minutes of a goal being scored. Unlike the free bets, you can withdraw it immediately, or you can use it for gambling or sports stakes, but bet responsibly.

If 4 of my 5 players are center-backs. Is that right?

The bookmaker Virgin Bet claims that players for the FIVES promotion are randomly selected. If you end up with four center-backs at once, alas, it's just bad luck with the lottery. Play every week and you'll get a squad with stellar forwards. Someday.
