FREEBETS.COM is all about free betting and free betting tips, in this guide we explain free bets plus how and where to get them.

What Are Free Bets?

Free bets are a bonus given by bookmakers which can be used to bet on sports. Returns from winning free bets do not include the stake. They are an incentive for new customers to register an account and for making a deposit or placing a bet.

Types Of Free Bets and Welcome Bonuses

Free Match Bet: Awarded for placing your first bet with a bookmaker who will match your stake up to the advertised maximum. Occasionally, you’ll find a great offer giving a multiple of the stake, such as Bet £5 Get £20 Free Bet. (click here for more details)

Risk Free Bet: Place your first bet and if it loses, the bookmaker will refund your stake (click here for more details) up to the maximum advertised amount, either as withdrawable cash or a free bet/bonus credit.

Deposit Bonus: Awarded for making a deposit into your betting account. (click here for more details) The bonus cannot be withdrawn until stipulated wagering requirements have been met.  Alternatively, an offer will stipulate wagering requirements on the deposit before the bonus is credited to the player’s account.

What Are Wagering Requirements?

Wagering requirements are betting conditions placed on the qualifying stake, deposit or bonus. It is important to understand the wagering requirements as they can impact on the real value of the free bet offer.

Look out for the following conditions:

Minimum Stake/Deposit: The minimum stake or deposit to qualify for the free bet or bonus.

Minimum Odds: The minimum odds of the selection(s) on qualifying bets.

Rollover Amount: The number of times the deposit and/or bonus or free bet amount must be wagered before winnings will be available to cash out. 

How To Get A Free Bet

The process of getting free bets is quite simple and can be explained in three easy steps.
Choose a free bet: Take your pick of the free bet offers (click here for more details) on Check you’ve understood the wagering requirements and when ready, click the CLAIM NOW buttons on the offer page.

Register an account: You’ll be taken to the bookmaker’s website to register your details and open an account. Have your debit/credit card handy to make a deposit. Minimum deposit amounts vary as does the stake amount required to qualify for a free bet so make sure you’re happy with the terms before committing to a payment.

Place a bet: Once you’ve made a deposit and you’re ready to place a bet you’ll find navigating to betting markets is very simple. Find the market you want to bet on and click on your selection which will appear on your betting slip then set the amount you want to stake on the bet. You’ll have the opportunity to edit or cancel the transaction before confirming your bet.
