Looking for a non nonsense list of free bets? Then you’ve found it. Here at BookieSignUpOffers.com we only do one thing and that’s search the web for the best free bets from UK licensed bookmakers. These betting promotions are offered by the bookies as a way to encourage you to sign up with them, and there’s some very generous bonuses up for grabs.
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.
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.
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.
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.
The 2022 PGA Championship will be the 104th edition of one of the most popular golf tournaments on the calendar. The competition will take place at the Southern Hills Country Club, Tulsa, Oklahoma, between the 19th and 22nd May. With the winner bagging over $2m in prize money, this will be one hotly contested competition in the States.
Texan Scottie Scheffler heads to Oklahoma as one of the favourites in the betting. Meanwhile, Rory McIlroy, Jon Rahm, Collin Morikawa and Justin Thomas – plus several others – will also fancy their chances at Southern Hills. Last year, Phil Mickelson lifted the trophy at Kiawah Island Golf Resort in South Carolina to become the oldest player ever to win a Major at the age of 50.
The PGA Championship is always an exciting few days of golf, and the 2022 version at Southern Hills Country Club will be no different. Will Scottie Scheffler win his second successive Major Championship?
The Formula One Spanish Grand Prix takes place at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya on Sunday, 22nd May. Last year, British ace Lewis Hamilton won the race, with Dutchman Max Verstappen finishing in second and Valtteri Bottas taking the bronze medal. This is one of the most exciting events on the F1 calendar, but who will come out on top in 2022?
Lewis Hamilton has won the previous five Spanish Grands Prix but it will be Max Verstappen for Red Bull and Charles Leclerc for Ferrari who will head to Barcelona as the favourites. The Stevenage-born star has struggled so far this season leaving Verstappen and Leclerc to battle it out for the Championship. This is one of the oldest F1 races in the world, and we’re expecting plenty of thrills and spills again in Barcelona.
The 2022 French Open tennis tournament gets underway at the Stade Roland Garros in Paris, France, on May 22nd. The 2022 edition will be the 126th event and the second Grand Slam of the year. In 2021, Novak Djokovic picked up his second title beating Stefanos Tsitsipas 3-2 in the men’s final having trailed 0-2. Meanwhile, Barbora Krejčíková got the better of Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova in the women’s final.
As expected, the King of Clay Rafael Nadal, who turns 36 during this year’s event, heads to the French capital as the strong favourite to regain his crown. At the time of writing, the Spaniard is available at just 6/4 to reign supreme in Paris. Meanwhile, Iga Swiatek is the 5/2 favourite to come out on top in the women’s singles.
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 Stefanos Tsitsipas – plus several others – will be hoping to stop the Mallorcan from recording a 14th victory in Paris. Get set for what promises to be another cracking French Open tournament at Roland Garros.
Liverpool and Real Madrid will contest the 2022 UEFA Champions League final at the Stade de France, Paris, on May 28th. These two European giants both came through difficult semi-finals. Liverpool beat Villarreal home and away after a scare in their second leg at El Madrigal. Having lost 4-3 away against Manchester City, Real Madrid found themselves 5-3 down on aggregate as City ran the clock down at the Santiago Bernabeu. Goals in the 89th and 90th minutes drew the tie level with an injury time Karim Benzema penalty taking Los Merengues through in dramatic fashion.
Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool head to the French capital as the favourites to lift their seventh Champions League trophy. However, no team has won this competition more than Real, with thirteen Champions Leagues or European Cups to their name including four titles in five seasons between 2014 and 2018.
Both teams have seen off some massive clubs to reach the 2022 final, but there can only be one winner on the night. Will the Champions League trophy will be coming to England or to Spain?
The Cazoo Derby Festival takes place on June 3rd and 4th, with the showpiece Epsom Derby run on the Saturday, with the Oaks on the Friday. The Derby Stakes is one of the most popular and prestigious horse races in the world, whilst the Oaks Stakes is the second oldest of the five Classic races.
Last year, Adayar – ridden by Adam Kirby and trained by Charlie Appleby – prevailed in the big race at 16/1. The Frankel colt was a strong 4½ length winner ahead of 50/1 outsider Mojo Star and 6/1 shot Hurricane Lane. The 11/8 favourite Bolshoi Ballet finished back in seventh place.
Luxembourg at 3/1 is the early favourite for this year’s race. Meanwhile, Tuesday and Emily Upjohn 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?
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:
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:
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 bookiesfreebets.co.uk.
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 bettingsignupoffers.com 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.
If you’re looking for a sneak preview of what to expect when visiting an online bookmaker, or want to compare how they all look, then you can see a gallery of some of the bigger sites below.
This site started out as a way for a few friends to keep track of the various sign up offers that are available from bookies in the UK. That’s pretty much it really. We look for new offers on a daily basis and frequently check the ones that are listed on the site to make sure that they’re still available. If you notice something that doesn’t look right, just drop us an email.
