Free Bets & Welcome Bonus Offers

When betting online first started free bets were all the rage. You could join a bookmaker, collect a free bet bonus and win money for free - often without making a deposit. These days betting rules and regulations have become much tighter and free no deposit offers from bookies are rare. Instead new punters are usually offered a matched deposit bonus bet, enhanced odds on selected sporting events such as The Grand National and Premier League games, or bonuses for slots and casino games.

Matched bets or deposit bonuses are when you deposit or wager x and then receive a free bet as a reward. For example you may need to wager 5 on horse racing to receive a 5 free racing bet. Wagering terms and conditions will apply to each offer and we do advise checking the small print. For example you may have to make one full bet at x and at odds greater than 2 to 1. The free bet may have limitations such as markets, time-span and maximum wins.

Our advice is to investigate a few of the sites listed above before making significant deposits and get a feel for the bookie. Do they offer free to play games? Do they have options for creating your own odds by tweeting? What are their cash-out terms? If you into matched betting then it's also worth checking out the various promotions that are offered to regular punters.
