Free bets guide

It doesn't matter whether you're a newbie or a seasoned bettor, there are hundreds of pounds worth of free bets on our site.

What is a 'free bet'?

Free bets are offered by bookmakers as a reward for signing up with them or for being loyal to them. Given that bookies are targeting you with a variety of offers, not all of them can be considered to be free bets. A free bet is as the name says, a free amount of credit given for the purposes of betting only.

For more about betting offers, such as bet boosts and enhancements read our betting offers guide.

Types of free bets

Matched Free Bets - the bookmaker gives you a free bet that equals the amount of your initial deposit.

No Deposit Free Bets - the bookmaker gives you a free bet without any need for you to deposit any money.

Reload Bonuses - the bookmaker simply adds some extra credits as a free bet to your account, normally around a major sporting event.

Risk Free Bets - the bookmaker credits you the amount of your real bet back as a free bet if it loses.

Qualifying Free Bets - a qualifying free bet can apply to both new and existing customers and requires the completion of certain criteria in order for you to receive a free bet. The most common example is after you place a number of bets you then get a free bet.

Finding the best free bets

You’re in the right place – we’ve got a great selection of UK free bets.

When looking at free bets you should consider which free bet fits you best. For instance, how much you want to deposit? Bookmakers will often match your first deposit with free bets, so the more you initially deposit, the more free bets you will get.

New customer free bets

Many of the free bet offers out there are for new customers only and that is true for a lot of betting offers. New customers get a great selection to pick from – every operator will have at least one free bet offer for you, if not more than one for you to choose from.

Existing customer free bets

Free Bet offers for existing customers are less common, but they are out there – and we’re here to showcase them.

There are also other free bets based on your loyalty as a customer. So if you’ve signed up for a new account, don’t think that’s the end of it – being loyal will continue to reward you.

Free bets for events

With many free bets that are offered, they tend to be based around a major sporting event, such as Grand National free bets, Cheltenham Festival free bets or World Cup free bets. So if you’re interested in a major sporting event, then there will likely be a free bet for you!

In fact, sometimes the free bet offers can be even sweeter around major sports betting events, so keep checking back for the latest free bets.

Free bets terms and conditions

Prior to signing up for a free bet, make sure that you read the small print so that you fully understand what it is you’re signing up for. The main thing to be aware of is that a free bet will often require you to deposit money or even place a bet before you are eligible for the free bet.

You should also consider things like minimum odds. Many free bets offers require you to bet on outcomes at certain prices.

It also pays to know when the free bet expires – sometimes the free bet may only be available for a few days.
