Everything You Need to Know About Free Bets

Sticking with our no nonsense approach in this next section we’ll give you a simple run down of the key things you need to know when claiming free bets. These are just the basics though, so for more information jump down to our FAQ section.

Qualifying Deposit & Bet

For almost all offers you'll need to make a real money deposit and then place your first bet. The value of your free bet sometimes varies based on the value of the deposit and initial wager but can sometimes be fixed.

Minimum Odds

For both your first bet and the free bet itself there will normally be a minimum odds requirement. This tends to be between 1/2 and evens. Some bookies also restrict the type of bet that can be placed.

Wagering Requirements

The winnings from your free bet are normally yours to keep, although some bookies place wagering requirements on them before you can withdraw. This tends to be more common with deposit based bonuses.

What’s on in May

PGA Championship – 16th May 2024

The 2024 PGA Championship will be the 106th edition of one of the most popular golf tournaments on the calendar. The competition will take place at Valhalla Golf Club, Louisville, Kentucky, between the 16th and 19th May. With the winner bagging $3.15m in prize money in 2023, this will be one hotly contested competition in the States.

The USA’s Scottie Scheffler heads to Louisville as one of the favourites in the betting. Meanwhile, Jon Rahm, Rory McIlroy, Viktor Hovland, Brooks Koepka and Ludvig Aberg – plus several others – will also fancy their chances at Valhalla. Last year, Brooks Koepka lifted the trophy for the third time at Oak Hill in Rochester, New York, having won this tournament previously in both 2018 and 2019.

The PGA Championship is always an exciting four days of golf, and the 2024 version at Valhalla will be no different. Will Brooks Koepka win his fourth PGA Championship in Kentucky?

French Open – 26th May 2024

The 2024 French Open tennis tournament gets underway at the Stade Roland Garros in Paris, France, on May 26th. The 2024 edition will be the 128th event and the second Grand Slam of the year. In 2023, Serbian Novak Djokovic picked up his third title, beating Casper Ruud in straight sets in the men’s final. Meanwhile, Iga Świątek got the better of Karolína Muchová in the women’s final.

Rafael Nadal, who turns 38 during this year’s event, heads to the French capital as the third favourite to win outright, with both Novak Djokovic and Carlos Alcaraz shorter in the betting to reign supreme in Paris. Meanwhile, Iga Świątek is the favourite to come out on top in the women’s singles for a fourth time in five years.

The French Open is always a tournament look forward to, especially if your name is Rafael Nadal, the man who has dominated in Paris for almost two decades. The likes of Novak Djokovic and Carlos Alcaraz – plus several others – will be hoping to stop the Mallorcan from recording a 15th victory in Paris. Get set for what promises to be another cracking French Open tournament at Roland Garros.

Epsom Derby & Oaks – 31st May & 1st June 2024

The Betfred Derby Festival takes place on the 31st of May and the 1st of June, with the showpiece Epsom Derby run on the Saturday and the Oaks on the Friday. The Derby is one of the most popular and prestigious horse races in the world, whilst the Oaks is the second oldest of the five Classic races.

Last year in the Derby, the joint second favourite Auguste Rodin – ridden by Ryan Moore and trained by Aidan O’Brien – prevailed in the big race at 9/2. The Deep Impact colt was a narrow ½ length winner ahead of 66/1 outsider King Of Steel and 12/1 shot White Birch. In the Oaks, John and Thady Gosden’s Soul Sister, ridden by Frankie Dettori, won at odds of 11/4.

City Of Troy at 2/1 is the early favourite for this year’s Derby. Meanwhile, Opera Singer and Ylang Ylang are the current favourites to win the Oaks. The Derby itself is undoubtedly the best flat race in the world, and we’ve been treated to some memorable moments at Epsom throughout the years. Who will reign supreme in this year’s Derby and Oaks?

UEFA Euro 2024 – 14th June 2024

Euro 2024 will begin on Friday 14th June when hosts Germany take on Scotland at Bayern Munich’s Allianz Arena. Unlike the previous tournament, which was held across the continent with the final at Wembley, this competition will return to a single host format. The stadiums that will be used at Germany 2024 include Borussia Dortmund’s Westfalenstadion, Fortuna Düsseldorf’s Merkur Spiel-Arena and VfB Stuttgart’s MHPArena. The final will be played at the Olympiastadion in Berlin.

Amongst the favourites to lift the trophy are Euro 2020 finalists England, World Cup runners-up France, and the host nation Germany. Reigning champions Italy will have to overcome a group including Spain, Croatia and qualifying surprise package Albania if they are to retain their title.

The final will be played on Sunday 14th July but who will be crowned as the new European Champions in Berlin?

Royal Ascot – 18th June 2024

Britain’s most valuable race meeting takes place in June, as the 2024 Royal Ascot extravaganza takes centre stage in Berkshire. Set in a stunning location at Ascot Racecourse, this is not an event to be missed for racing fanatics. This year, Royal Ascot gets underway on Tuesday June 18th so get the date marked in your diary.

With millions of pounds of prize money up for grabs, Royal Ascot is one of the richest horse racing events in the world. All the biggest races are run at Ascot, with the marathon Ascot Gold Cup being one of the most popular contests. The event used to be run over four days, with the fifth day on Saturday known as the more informal Ascot Heath fixture. Now, the Royal Meeting has been extended to include all five days.

Royal Ascot dates all the way back to 1711 and was founded by Queen Anne. Elizabeth II attended the event most years before and during her reign, along with other members of the British Royal family. The newly crowned King, Charles III was in attendance in 2023. What will unfold over five glorious days of racing and pageantry this year?

Bookie FAQ

We’ve covered the key points in our claiming guide earlier in the page. Basically you need to make sure you’re eligible, that you deposit the minimum and follow the instructions given by the bookie. Normally this involves placing a qualifying bet at minimum odds, or turning your deposit over a set number of times.

Sometimes you may also need to use a bonus code but this will clearly be stated on the bookies site and we usually make a note of it in our description.

Once you receive your free bet you can use it however you wish, although many bookmakers place restrictions on the type of bet you can place. Again this will be stated in the terms and conditions of the offer.

Yes. Although they tend to fit into one of the following categories:

  • Free Bets – The simplest of all of the offers are the free bets. Here you’ll receive a free bet in exchange for placing one with your own money. The value of the free bet varies from bookie to bookie and is usually either for a fixed amount, such as bet £10 for £30 in free bets, or matched against your first bet, such as bet £10 for £10 free.
  • Enhanced Odds & Profit Boosts – The opposite of a risk free bet is a profit boost. Here your winnings will be boosted should your first bet win, but you’ll get nothing if it loses. Some bookies with these offers will boost any winnings whilst others dictate a specific bet but with greatly inflated odds – such as 33/1 for Arsenal to beat Fulham.
  • Deposit Bonuses – Unlike the first three types of offer, the deposit bonus is based on your first deposit rather than your first bet. Here you will receive a bonus after betting your deposit a set number of times, although it can normally be split into multiple smaller bets if you like. Once released the bonus can be used to bet as normal, but you’ll most likely need to place a minimum amount of wagers before being able to withdraw it

Generally speaking, yes. All of the offers we list are from bookmakers who are registered with the UK Gambling Commission who enforce strict rules on how the bookies must operate. The only real risk to your funds are if something happens to the bookmaker that caused them to bust. This can happen though, as we saw with Moplay recently so it’s better to be safe than sorry.

Whilst bookmakers must legally separate client funds their own operating funds, they aren’t legally required to safeguard funds in the unlikely event that they become insolvent. They are, however, required to publicly state whether or not your funds are protected based on three specific ratings:

  1. Basic – No protection. Funds considered part of the business.
  2. Medium – Arrangements made to ensure that customers funds are returned in the event of insolvency. This could be some kind of insurance policy.
  3. High – Funds are kept in an account considered to be legally separate from the bookmaker and controlled by an independent auditor.

You can read more about how your money is protected on the Gambling Commission website.

No. In fact there are plenty we don’t include in our list. We have decided to only list the offers that are worth claiming so that rather than having to sift through endless promotions from terrible white labels you can get straight to the good stuff.

The value of the offers on this site will vary and some are more punter friendly than others, but generally speaking if it’s on the list we’d be happy to claim it ourselves (and we probably have).

For a larger list that includes many of the offers that we’ve decided against, see our friends at

No. We constantly check for new offers and pretty much know everything that’s available. If you represent a bookmaker that has a sign up offer that we haven’t listed then either we don’t think the offer is worth claiming, or we have another issue with the site that means that we’re not willing to recommend it to our readers. We also only list offers from bookmakers who are licensed in the UK. 

Most online bookies will have some form of casino games for you to play, either as a section of side games alongside the sportsbook or as a dedicated casino and games section. Some even offer other products such as poker or bingo.

When other products are available most of the sites will normally have some kind of new customer offer so don’t forget to check the relevant sections of the bookies we’ve listed above. We also run a second site that tracks all kinds of sign up offer, not just for sports – visit for more details.

We mentioned white labels briefly earlier. Simply put a white label bookmaker doesn’t operate the site themselves. Instead they outsource the running to another company and put their name on it. This is commonplace for well known companies who way to utilise their brand name in the market but don’t have the expertise to do it themselves. For example, imagine Tesco wanted to set up a bookie called Tesco Bet they may turn to a white label provider to supply the platform and manage the odds.

This is the reason that many betting sites look very similar – it’s because they’re actually the same site but with a different ‘skin’.

The problem that white labels produce is that it causes the barrier to entry to be much lower, meaning anyone with enough start up capital to pay the white label fees – roughly £20,000 – could set up an online bookmaker. And this includes you, your neighbour Steve and even your granny if she wanted to. 

For this reason white labels can often be a bit unreliable and close down as quickly as they opened. And whilst there’s no real risk to your funds – because they’re the responsibility of the underlying platform, not your granny – it is a bit annoying.

White label bookmakers also tend to be quite restrictive when it comes to sign up offers as they don’t have the same kind of budgets that the big boys do. That’s why the free bets tend to come with higher odds, more restrictive terms or bigger wagering requirements.

And that’s why you won’t find too many of them on our site.
