What are Free Bets and How Do They Work?

A free bet is a bonus that is worth a specific amount and must be used as an individual bet.

The difference between a regular sports bet and a free sports bet is that when punters place a free bet the stake is not made up of their money, but a free bet token instead.

This allows punters to potentially win big without the risk associated with sports betting, but the stake is usually not returned to the player with any winnings.

How can you get Free Bets?

Online bookies offer players free bets as part of all sorts of promotions.

Some of the most common are:

  1. Welcome offers when you open a new betting account – in order to credit your account with a free bet you will need to make a first deposit of usually between £5 to £10.
  2. A Free Bet Club – you’ll receive a free bet when you make the requisite number of regular bets, such as placing 4 accas in a week.
  3. Insurance Offers – bet on specific events and if you lose but a specific scenario occurs you will receive your stake back up to a certain amount as a free bet. E.g. bet on football and if you lose but it finishes 0-0 receive your stake back as a free bet of up to £10

Here at Freebets.com we have partnered with the biggest names in sports betting to provide our visitors with the best collection of free bets and enhanced odds offers you’ll find anywhere.

Latest Free Bet Offers for New & Existing Customer on Freebets.com

Is the ‘Free Bet’ Really Free? 

The name free bet comes from the fact that punters don’t have to part with their own money when using one of these offers. Instead of their betting balance, stakes are covered by free bet tokens.

The catch behind a free bet is in reality there is almost always an expense required before you can earn a free bet and most free bets can’t be cashed out.

Whether this expense takes the form of a qualifying bet, first deposit or participation in a free bet club, it’s vital to understand what is required before your free bet bonus is credited.

Understanding the Terms & Conditions 

The most important piece of advice we could give you when it comes to free bets UK punters can take advantage of is to read the terms and conditions. The bookies use free bet promotions to entice customers but they always come with conditions attached.

You will usually find the terms and conditions written in small print below the main details and the key terms to look out for are:

  • Timeframe – typically you have seven days to use a free bet once rewarded. Be sure to do so as the free bet could be removed thereafter.
  • Winnings – In a few, rare situations, free bet offers may have a cap on the amount you can win using your free bet credits/tokens.

Other conditions include:

  • Minimum odds requirements
  • Who is eligible
  • Minimum deposit amounts
  • Accepted and restricted deposit methods
  • How and when free bets are credited
  • What sort of bets (singles, multiples, etc) are eligible

If you are in any doubt about free bet sign-up T&C’s we suggest that you get clarification from the bookmaker’s customer support staff before entering the free bet promotion.

Tips & Strategies on Choosing a Free Bet Offer 

The most obvious free sports bets to aim for are the biggest ones!

For a long time betting sign up offers were described as a ‘matched bet offer’ whereby a first time deposit/bet would receive an identical amount as a free bet bonus.

But nowadays they come in all shapes and sizes. We maintain the bigger the size or number of free bets the better, but here’s a few things to consider:

  • How much do I need to deposit/bet to get the biggest free bet bonus?
  • Will the free bets be credited to my account immediately?
  • What are the time restrictions on placing my free bets?
  • Are there realistic restrictions on the amount I can win?
  • Will I have to place additional bets before I can withdraw my free bet winnings?
  • What are the minimum deposit required to trigger my free bet?
  • What sports, events and market types do my free bets work on?
  • Is the bookmaker is fully licenced and regulated in my country?

What are the Advantages of Free Bets 

Free bets are risk free and that means a punter can be carefree with them backing big odds selections giving the prospect of big returns.

What are the Disadvantages of Free Bets

Free bet offers are a mainstay of the free betting sites but they do have some disadvantages such as:

  • The stake is not returned from free bets
  • Qualifying criteria can be very difficult to achieve
  • Limitations on the markets, bets you can place
  • Punters almost always have to pay something before getting a free bet
  • Terms and conditions are sometimes difficult to understand
  • Betting sign up offers and free bets can encourage you to gamble when you might not normally do so.

License and Safety

Free bets are no different to bets placed with cash (other than your free bet stake is not returned in any winning payouts) and therefore they come under the same general terms and conditions of your bookmaker which, in turn, is licensed by a reputable organization such as the UK Gambling Commission or Malta Gaming Authority.

Furthermore, we promote responsible gambling and strongly support organizations that offer support to those who may become affected by problem gambling such as GamCare and Gambling Therapy.

How to Find the Best Free Bets & Sign Up Bonuses

Freebets.com is your one-stop-shop for finding the latest free bets, bonus codes and enhanced odds offers that will help you in your battle against the bookies!

As a new customer you can take full advantage of all free betting which we list every day – they including matched bonuses, enhanced odds, free bets no deposit offers, and others. We scour the Internet and list all of the latest free bet exclusives so that you don’t have to search for them.

Types of Free Bet Offers for New Customers

There is a range of free bets available for punters starting with the aforementioned popular ‘matched free bets’ which usually come in the form of welcome offers when signing up to a new bookmaker.

  • No Deposit Free Bets – ‘No Deposit’ free bets are quite rare but mean you don’t always have to make a deposit to enjoy an initial free bet sign up offer bonus. Normally these do come with very restrictive winning potential, such as a £/10 max.
  • Free Bet Sign Up Offers – Generally speaking, free bet offers for new customers are very simple with a minimum deposit limit initiating a free bet offer which is activated once your first qualifying bet is settled. 
  • Risk Free Bets – But free betting sites can also work their new customer promotions to act as risk-free bets and consolation prizes whereby you will receive a free bet credit if your first bet is a loser.
  • Enhanced Odds Betting Sign Up Offers – Enhanced odds offers are the other major betting offers you’ll find for new customers. Oftentimes, most or all of the winnings from these enhanced odds are credited to customer accounts as free bets rather than cash.

Free Bet Offers for Existing Customers

There are countless reasons why, as an existing customer, you can and will receive free football bets or free sports bets.

  • Free Bet Clubs – Many firms have ‘bet clubs’ which will credit you with a free bet every week if you place a certain number of bets during the course of the previous seven days.
  • Reload Bonuses – If replenishing your online account with cash you might find your online bookmaker has a random free bet bonus offer which is triggered when making a new deposit.
  • Consolation Prizes – It is not uncommon for ongoing promotions to have free bet concessions associated with them. Free bets are often given to existing customers when their horse is beaten into second by a favourite or falls at the last flight of a race. Another example in sports betting is you can collect free bets for Grand Slam tennis matches if your player goes two sets ahead but loses.
  • Justice Payments – Many free bet offers involve ‘fair play’ and so, for example, if you back a horse who plants himself in the stalls at the off or who weighs in light after the race, you may receive a free bet as compensation.
  • Loyalty Bonuses – Regular punters are often rewarded for their loyalty via free bets.  

Free Bets FAQs

Unlike bets placed with cash a free bet cannot be cashed out either prior to the start of the event or in-play.
They usually do. Skybet are the only firm we know of who offer free bets with no expiry dates. Normally betting sites have a 7 day period between a free bet being credited and it expiring and being removed. You can, however, place a free bet on a long-range event such as the FA Cup of Cheltenham Festival.
As opposed to winnings being paid in cash, under some circumstances free bet credits / bonuses are used as a payment method. As your stakes are not returned with the winnings from a free bet, free bet bonuses have a lesser worth than actual cash.
Like all sports bets, you can make money from free bets if your bet wins. Although you won’t receive your stake back you will receive the winnings. The bigger the odds, the more you’ll win
Once you have decided on a selection simply select/click it and it will appear in your betting slip. Here you will usually see a small button or checkbox saying ‘Use free bet bonus’ or similar. If you want to use your free bet simply click this before confirming your bet placement.
You cannot withdraw a free bet or free bet bonus balance as cash but you can withdraw winnings from a free bet.

How to Claim Free Bets & Sports Betting Bonuses as a Welcome Offer

If you’re claiming a free bet as part of a welcome offer the free bet is usually credited to your account once you’ve registered an account and made your first ‘real money’ bet for the specified amount in the offer.

You can then usually use it on any sports bet, although there are sometimes restrictions as to the minimum odds or a requirement to make a certain number of bets for specific amounts before a withdrawal is permitted.

Offers and terms can vary markedly depending on the bookie and the specific offer, so using a free bet site like Freebets.com enables you to find the very best deals in one place, rather than having to do all the searching yourself.
