Christmas is just around the corner and most European leagues will be in recess next week, so this weekend is the last opportunity to make some money. The odds have been increased by several bookmakers and Ladbrokes has a tempting proposition to make to those who wager on the major continental championships.

Place a fivefold accumulator bet and have the wager reimbursed if a single selection lets you down, on any game schedule from Friday to Monday. If you have a particular interest in the Bundesliga, then you should know that the bookmaker has boosted the odds on Bayern Munich to Win & Both Teams to Score to 5/2 up from 15/8.

In the English Premier league Liverpool takes on Arsenal in the most exciting match of the round and Bet365 is offering a risk-free in-play bet of up to €50. All the players need to do is to place a bet before the kickoff and if this wager loses, the bookie will refund the stakes. Members get the same deal if they wager on the Stoke vs Chelsea scheduled for Monday, in a match where the leaders take on a struggling team. The 100% football special bonus is still up and running at Bet365 and applies to all accumulators placed on the Premier League, Serie A, Primera Liga, Bundesliga 1 or Champions League.
