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 June

Wimbledon – 27th June 2022

The 2022 Wimbledon Championships takes place at the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club in London, with the main tournament kicking off on June 27th. It will be the 135th edition of this famous Grand Slam tennis event.

Wimbledon is arguably the most popular tournament on the tennis calendar, attracting interest from all over the world. In 2021, £35m in prize money was won during the event, with Novak Djokovic winning the men’s tournament, and the now retired Ashleigh Barty coming out on top in the women’s competition. Djokovic is favourite to retain his crown, while Poland’s Iga Swiatek is fancied to win the women’s event. But as always there are plenty of worthy contenders to take the title.

Wimbledon at SW19 always puts on a stunning show for tennis fanatics and those with just a passing interest in the sport, and 2022 is set to be another thrilling tournament in England’s capital. The main competition will run for two weeks, with the women’s and men’s finals taking place on Centre Court on July 9th and 10th respectively.

Tour de France – 1st July 2022

The 2022 Tour de France will be the 109th edition of the race. The event, which is one of cycling’s three grand tours, begins in Copenhagen, Denmark, on July 1st, ending in Paris 23 days later. Over the course of the event, a staggering 2,068 miles will be covered by the cyclists. This is the ultimate test of endurance, concentration and talent.

The Tour de France has been the most prestigious event on the cycling calendar for many years, with the very first edition taking place all the way back in 1903, which was won by Frenchman Maurice Garin. British cyclist Chris Froome has enjoyed excellent success in the Tour de France in recent years, winning the event on four occasion (2013, 2015, 2016 and 2017).

In 2021, Team Emirates’ Tadej Pogacar, who was born in Slovenia, won the gruelling race for the second successive year ahead of runner-up Jonas Vingegaard and Richard Carapaz in third. Pogacar is well fancied with the bookies to come out on top again this year ahead of Primoz Roglic and last year’s runner-up Vingegaard.

British Grand Prix – 3rd July 2022

The Formula One drivers start their engines for the 2022 F1 British Grand Prix at Silverstone Circuit in Northamptonshire on the 3rd July. This will be the 10th race of 22 in 2022. British ace Lewis Hamilton has dominated at Silverstone in recent years and is the most successful driver of this GP in history. The Stevenage-born star is currently not having his best season but will still be looking for his ninth win in his home Grand Prix.

Hamilton won here last season, ahead of Red Bull’s Max Verstappen in second place, teammate Valtteri Bottas in third, and the Ferrari of Charles Leclerc finishing in fourth spot. Current world champion Verstappen will be the bookies’ favourite to win the first British GP of his career.

Motor racing fans from all over the world normally flock to England for this one, with this event being one of the most popular on the Formula One calendar. Will those watching see a surprise British winner once again?

Newmarket July Festival – 7th July 2022

The July Festival at Newmarket Racecourse kicks off on July 7th in 2022. The festival is home to several top-class races, including the Princess of Wales’s Stakes, the Falmouth Stakes, the July Stakes and the Bunbury Cup, among many others. The most prestigious race is the six furlong July Cup, which is run on the Saturday.

The July Course is used for this meeting each summer, hosting two Group 1 races: the July Cup and the Falmouth Stakes. After the Guineas Festival, which is run on the Rowley Mile Course, the July Festival is Newmarket’s biggest event of the year, with thousands of fans flocking to Suffolk, and even more watching from home.

In the 2021 July Cup, Starman ran out winner for jockey Tom Marquand and trainer Ed Walker. Australian raiders Nature Strip and Home affairs are among the early favourites to take this year’s crown in what is looking a wide open contest. Newmarket is ready for another cracking few days of racing in July.

Open Championship – 14th July 2022

The 150th edition of the Open Championship will be held at St Andrews in Scotland, from the 14th – 17th July. American Collin Morikawa was crowned champion at Royal St George’s in Kent last year. The 2022 edition is set to be another exhilarating golf tournament in the UK.

The likes of Morikawa, Rory McIlroy and Jon Rahm are all fancied to take the Open Championship crown. Meanwhile, Masters champions Scotties Scheffler and US PGA Championship winner Justin Thomas will both be looking to add their second major of the season.

St Andrews will play host for the 30th time in its history, with the tournament previously having been held in at the Fife course back in 2015. That Open Championship was won by Zach Johnson who triumphed in a playoff against Marc Leishman and Louis Oosthuizen. Who will lift the Claret Jug in 2022?

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.
