New Customer Free Bets

Free bets for new customers are the most popular type of free bet available. Bookies offer these free bets all year round, but at certain times of the year such as Cheltenham, the 2018 World Cup, 2010 Euro’s or at the start of the Premier League Season the bookies might have more lucrative free bets or other special offers.

Free bets for new customers come in a range of formats.

Risk Free Bet: Risk-free bets allow you to place a bet, safe in the knowledge that if it loses, you will get your money back as a free bet, bonus or cash. eg £20 risk free bet.

Matched Free Bet: A very popular type of free bet offered by many bookmakers. Bookmakers offer you a free bet which is equal to the amount of your initial bet. eg bet £5 get £5 free

Sometimes the free bet will be a greater amount eg. bet £5 get £20 free

Deposit Free Bet Another popular offer. Bookmakers give you a free bet equal to or greater than your initial deposit. eg. Deposit £10 or more and receive a 150% matched bonus to your deposit amount up to a maximum of £50.
