What Are The Pros and Cons of New Customer Offers?
What is a Free Bet?
A free bet, as you might expect, is a bet where you have a chance to win, but have no risk of losing. Sounds good right? And it is, although it isn’t quite as straightforward as that simple definition. There may be conditions which need to be met to qualify for any free bet. Conditions may also apply to the withdrawal of any winnings generated by the free bet stake.
How do I get a Free Bet?
To qualify for a free bet related to a sign up offer, you simply need to register for a new account with the relevant bookmaker. Free bet promotions for existing customers, including instructions on how to qualify are usually sent via email. They may also be visible upon logging in to your account.
What can I use a Free Bet on?
The majority of free bets can be placed on any sports betting market, and used as you choose, with singles, doubles etc accepted. Any sports or bet type restrictions are always listed in the terms and conditions.
What Kind Of Terms and Conditions Apply to Free Bets?
It is always important to read the exact terms and conditions of an individual offer. Ideally before signing up, to avoid disappointment.That said, examples of the types of conditions you can expect to be in place include:
FreeBets Terms and Conditions Examples
- Amount: E.g. 100% Free Matched Bet – up to a maximum stake of £20.
- Wagering requirements: e.g. 4 x wagering requirement on any winnings before withdrawal.
- Deposit Methods: Deposits made via an e-wallet are the most common to be excluded from free bet offers.
- Minimum Odds: E.g. Bet £10 get £10. Initial bet must be at minimum odds of Evens.
- Valid Period: E.g. Free bet/bonus funds expire 14-days after issue.
Are there any Free Bets for existing customers?

Existing customers free bets will usually feature as part of a “Free Bet Club”. Such clubs provide a free bet for placing a specified number of bets.Examples include:
FAQs - FREE BETS
The main thing to remember is that with a free bet, the stake will usually not be included in any winning returns. For example, a normal £10 bet at odds of 3/1 would return £40 (£30 winnings + £10 stake).
- A FREE £10 bet at odds of 3/1 would return a total of £30. With a free bet the stake proportion of a winning bet is retained by the bookmaker.
Most free bets can be used on a range of bet types, including accumulators. There may be certain rules in place e.g. valid for accumulators were the total odds are a minimum of 3/1.
Once the free bet qualifying conditions have been met, the free bet token is added to your account. This token should then be available to select as a staking option on your bet slip.
Usually you will not receive the stake back with any returns resulting from a free bet. However, there are exceptions to this. As ever it is worth checking the exact terms and conditions of any individual offer.
Winnings resulting from a free bet are usually regarded as cash and are available to withdraw should you wish. However, in some instances there may be wagering requirements in place applying to free bet winnings.
e.g. 3 x turnover on winnings prior to any withdrawal.
e.g. 3 x turnover on winnings prior to any withdrawal.
Yes. In our experience the vast majority of offers apply to customers signing up via a mobile device. Many sites actually now offer bonuses specifically designed for mobile users. As ever, be sure to check those T&Cs.
Customers are only permitted to have one account with a specific bookmaker. Therefore they can only enjoy an operators sign-up offer/welcome bonus on one occasion.
However, there are many betting sites out there. An individual is entitled to open an account – and benefit from the welcome offer – with as many different companies as they choose.
The answer to this question will differ from person to person. Factors to consider include how much you wish to deposit, and what level of stakes you usually play at. In general, avoid offers with very high turnover requirements prior to withdrawal, and favour those which offer more. Bet £10 get £30 is obviously more appealing than bet £10 get £10 for example.
