Free bets -  FAQ

How do you claim an offer?

Choose the best betting site for you - and our links will take you to the relevant landing page for the offer. Simply follow the instructions on the landing page to collect the offer.

Most of the bonuses we feature are for new customers, and as such are sign-up offers. Some betting sites have free bet clubs that reward regular punters with bonuses.

We do our best to update our information as sign-up offers change. However, sometimes offers will vary from those we have outlined.

What are the different types of free bet?

There is a huge variety of different offers available in the market, but they broadly sit within four categories:

  • Matched deposit bonus: upon setting up a new account linked to one of these offers you'll be credit with free bets equivalent to your initial deposit
  • Free bet with a minimum deposit: these are the most common form of offer. To qualify you simply have to make the minimum specified deposit, which varies between bookies and offers
  • Enhanced offers: increasingly common, these are enhanced odds or prices for particular outcomes, and sometimes include accumulator or multiple bets
  • Free bet clubs: certain bookies offer regular, weekly or monthly free bets to customers. To qualify for these offers you generally need to wager a specific amount regularly with the operator and there may be restrictions as to how the free bet can be used

Typical terms and conditions for betting offers and bonuses

  • When you sign up you may need to enter a bonus code to qualify for the offer
  • In most instances, you'll need to deposit your own money and place a qualifying bet - the terms of which vary between bookmakers
  • Regardless of the outcome of your qualifying bet (win or lose) the bonus funds will be credited to your account
  • You typically need to wager the entire free bet in one go - the bonus amount can not usually be split between several bets, and there often specific restrictions on how the bet can be placed and on what.

When do I get my free bet?

Typically bookmakers will want you to make a deposit, or make your first bet before being awarded your bonus. Typically there is a requirement to deposit a certain amount or place your bet at the minimum required odds to become eligible for the bonus.

Is there any limit to the number of offers I can claim?

No, you can claim as many free bets offers as you like. We would recommend having more than one bookmaker account to make the most of the odds comparison we offer throughout the site, particularly in our smart bet slip - which calculates the best price for your accumulator.

Is there a catch with these offers?

Bookmakers will have their own wagering requirements for free bets. Often you'll need to use them on bets with certain odds or higher, and sometimes you'll have to wager (or 'rollover') your original deposit and bonus cash several times before withdrawing winnings.

Check the terms and conditions before you sign-up to ensure you're certain about what is on offer.

Do I have to be in the UK to claim an offer?

All of the free bet offers presented on this page are available to bettors in the UK. Where bookies will take customers from varies on a case-by-case basis, check the relevant terms and conditions for each bookmaker. Some offers may only be available in the UK, but the bookie will still allow you to sign-up for an account if you reside in another country.

Do 'Free bet no deposit' offers exist?

These days it is rare to find free bet no deposit offers. Most bookmakers now expect customers to deposit or make a bet before qualifying for any form of free bet offer.

How to Make the Most of Free Bet Offers

Making money off the bookies’ expense is one thing, but you need to also bet intelligently. To do this, use free football tips to your advantage.

There are no guarantees when it comes to winning in betting, but applying a strategy and using predictions can help. Some general advice includes:

Doing Research

Never place a bet blind, always do your research to find out as much as possible. Look at everything from current form to attacking statistics.

Find Your Market

There are many different betting markets to choose from, such as draw no bet or double chance. Odds vary depending on the game itself, the bookmaker and other factors.

Bear in mind, that while some outcomes are easier to predict, odds will likely be shorter. But, you may have a better chance of winning. These are things to consider before you bet!

Place an Accumulator

Why not place multiple bets all at once? This can significantly boost your potential winnings, while making the game more exciting.

If you’re unsure where to start, use football accumulator tips to help point you in the right direction. Acca insurance is also offered by many bookies for those worried one leg might let them down.

What are the Best Free Bets?

The answer depends entirely on what you want and the kind of bet you’re placing.

Each offer has its pros and cons, and you should always take a close look at the pros and cons.

For example, enhanced odds are offered by most bookies - often not just for new customers. These help you maximise profit without having to spend more money.

Are Free Bets & Sign Up Offers the Same?

No, they are not technically the same, as free bets can be given to existing customers too. However, free bets are a common sign up offer.

Bookies use these as a way to entice punters in, so it pays to look around.
