Compare Free Bets


Free bets are by far the most popular method that online bookmakers or sportsbooks as they are commonly referred to, use to attract new customers. Generally a 100% matched free bet is offered when you deposit and place a bet that meets the criteria of the offer. On settlement of your bet the free bet token is usually added to your account with no claim to submit.

Common Sportsbook bonuses

Although the free bet is by far the most popular bonus offered to new sportsbook customers there are on occasion other attractive offers that are worth taking up. Here’s a few that are worth a second glance..

Introductory Free Bet
Usually comes in the form of a 100% match of anywhere between £10 & £200. You will be required to stake your deposit amount on a selection that has minimum odds e.g. Evens (2.0) or greater (this can vary with different sportsbooks so do check T&Cs). Once your bet is settled the free bet is usually added to your account. Depending on the individual offer you may be required to play through the free bet a number of times before it is eligible for withdrawal.

Risk Free Bet
Similar to a free bet this type of offer allows you to place your initial deposit amount as a bet to a maximum amount (usually £25). If your selection loses then the funds are refunded to you, so win or lose it’s a win – win situation all round.

Double Odds
Rather than offering a cash amount, double the odds are offered exclusively to New Players on a particular market. If you happen to be attracted by this opportunity then do your sums as it can be more beneficial than taking a free bet offer. There’s nothing like getting paid out at 4/1 on a 2/1 shot!

Reload Bonus
Not as common as free bets but worth consideration when choosing which sportsbook to join. As the name suggests you’ll get a bonus of up to 20% added to your deposit as an existing customer – these are great additions for the regular bettor and are a reward for loyalty.
