What Are Free Bets?

Online bookmakers such as William Hill and Paddy Power, offer free bets to new players as a method of attracting custom to their website and to regular players as a reward for loyalty, winning bonus or consolation on a losing bet.

Free bets can be earned in various ways, but in almost all cases are not included with any winnings. For example; Using a £10 free bet to back Hurricane Fly at 4/1 would return £40 if the bet wins. (£10 x 4/1 = £50 - £10 Free Bet Stake = £40). Free bets also carry some other requirements such as minimum odds and expiry dates, but Freebets.com spells out all the terms and conditions of each bookmaker’s introductory free bet offer, deposit bonus and money back special to save you the trouble of hunting out the small print.

Horse Racing Money Back Specials

Money back specials offer a potential refund to customers, either as a free bet or withdrawable cash, if a pre-determined outcome occurs in a particular race. The offers are usually limited to selected betting markets, one refund per customer and there is generally a cap on the maximum refund amount.

An example of such an offer would be; 'Money Back If The Favourite Wins'. For such an offer the bookie would refund the customer's first losing bet on any of the selected markets, if the SP favourite did in fact win the race.

If you fancy taking advantage of money back specials during the Punchestown Festival, then look no further as you're in the right place.
