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

French Open – 26th May 2019

The 2019 French Open tennis tournament gets underway at the Stade Roland Garros in Paris, France on May 26th. The 2019 edition will be the 123rd event and the second Grand Slam of the year. In 2018, the King of Clay Rafael Nadal picked up his 11th French Open title, beating Dominic Thiem 3-0 in the men’s final. Meanwhile, Simona Halep got the better of Sloane Stephens in the women’s final.

As expected, Nadal heads to the French capital as the strong favourite to retain his crown. At the time of writing, the Spaniard is available at just 7/5 to reign supreme in Paris. Meanwhile, Halep is the 5/1 favourite to come out on top in the women’s final once again.

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 well over a decade. The likes of Novak Djokovic, Roger Federer and Thiem – plus several others – will be hoping to stop the 32-year-old from recording a 12th victory in Paris. Get set for what promises to be another cracking French Open tournament at Roland Garros.

Monaco Grand Prix – 26th May 2019

The Formula One teams and drivers flock to the Circuit de Monaco for the F1 Monaco Grand Prix on May 26th. The Monte Carlo track is arguably the most famous F1 circuit of them all, producing countless memorable moments over the years. The likes of Lewis Hamilton, Valtteri Bottas and Sebastian Vettel will be gunning for gold in Monaco.

Daniel Ricciardo, who was then a Red Bull driver, picked up a race win in Monte Carlo last year, pipping runner-up Vettel and third place Hamilton to the line. The late, great Ayrton Senna was the king of Monaco, winning this Grand Prix on six occasions during his illustrious career. Meanwhile, Hamilton will be looking for a third Monaco win, and his first since 2016.

The Monaco Grand Prix is widely considered one of the most prestigious races in the world, renowned for its tight corners and stunning scenery, making it the most gruelling and spectacular races on the F1 calendar. Get ready for what promises to be another thrilling Formula One Monaco Grand Prix.

Epsom Derby & Oaks – 31st May & 1st June 2019

The Investec Derby Festival gets underway on May 31st, with the showpiece Epsom Derby taking place the following day. The Derby Stakes is one of the most popular and prestigious horse races in the world, run at Epsom Downs on the first Saturday of June each year. Meanwhile, the Oaks Stakes, which is also run during the festival, is the second oldest of the five Classic races, officially known as the Investec Oaks.

Last year, 16/1 Masar – ridden by William Buick and trained by Charlie Appleby – prevailed in the big race, seeing off runner-up Dee Ex Bee. The 4/5 favourite Saxon Warrior finished up in fourth place. Sir Dragonet and Too Darn Hot, both at 9/2, are the early favourites for this year’s race. Meanwhile, Pink Dogwood is the current favourite 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 Champions League Final – 1st June 2019

Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool will contest an all-English UEFA Champions League final in Atletico Madrid’s Wanda Metropolitano Stadium on June 1st. These two Premier League rivals defied the odds in the second legs of their semi-finals, both coming from three goals down at one point to go through. The Reds beat Barcelona 4-3 in their semi, while Spurs edged past Ajax on away goals. This year’s final really could go either way.

Naturally, Jurgen Klopp’s Reds head to the Spanish capital as the favourites to lift the trophy. However, this Spurs side have showed tremendous character and quality to get this far. Tottenham will be gunning for a first European trophy since winning the UEFA Cup back in 1984. Meanwhile, Liverpool will be hoping to add a sixth European Cup to their trophy cabinet.

Both teams have seen off some massive clubs to reach the Madrid final, but there can only be one winner on the night. The Champions League trophy will be coming to England, but will it be heading to the capital or to Merseyside?

Nations League Semi-Finals – 5th & 6th June 2019

Portugal, Switzerland, Netherlands and England will battle it out in the 2019 UEFA Nations League semi-finals. This has been a very successful first Nations League tournament, one that has produced many memorable moments since kicking off in September 2018. Which two teams will go through to contest the first ever Nations League Final?

Portugal welcome Switzerland to the Estadio do Dragao in Porto to get the semi-finals underway on June 5th. The following day, Gareth Southgate’s England go up against Ronald Koeman’s Holland at the Estadio D. Afonso Henriques in Guimaraes. The current European champions are expected to see off the Swiss, while the Three Lions are the slight favourites against the Dutch in the second semi.

The Nations League might not be as prestigious as the FIFA World Cup or the UEFA European Championship, but it’s a trophy that all four nations will be wanting to lift in Porto. Can Southgate’s England follow up a fine World Cup campaign by winning the first ever Nations League tournament?

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.
  • Risk Free Bets – Risk free bets also require you to place a real money bet, however this time you’ll only trigger the offer if your qualifying bet loses. There are two types of risk free bet, the true risk free bets which refund your losing bet in cash (and yes, these do exist) and pseudo risk free bets where you’ll receive it as a free bet.
  • 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. 

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. 

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.
