When you join any online bookmaker or sportsbook there is some sort of free bet or offer. Bookies do this as a marketing loss-leader because they want your business. They are effectively bribing you to register, so take advantage.
The regular ongoing bonuses are listed below while the short-lived, one-off, event-specific promos and bookies special offers are listed here.
£50 BETFRED (match 1st bet): The way to grab this £50 free bet is to register and place your very first bet. They will match the stake of your first bet so long as you back a selection at odds of evens or more and your bet is at least for £5 or your currency equivalent. These guys enjoy a reputation for regular sports betting bonuses and daily promotions. So you can expect that the freebies will not end there. Keep a close eye on the offers via their promotions link on a regular basis to make the most of the bonuses at Betfred.
£200 Bet365 (match 1st deposit): The key is the amount you choose to load your betting account with because they will match that amount. So if you deposit the minimum of £10 then you get £10 extra and if you deposit the full £200 or more then you will attract the maximum bonus of a couple of hundred pounds (or currency equivalent). You do obviously need to bet with the funds before you can withdraw them from Bet365.
£/€25 BetVictor: We really like this online site, formerly called Victor Chandler. The bonus is a match of your first bet stake up to that sum. The selection must be at odds of evens or bigger and if it is an accumulator bet then one leg must be those odds or more. If your first bet is a four-timer or higher then the selections can be any odds. You must place the first bet within 30 days of opening the account and you will get your free bet within 48 hours of settlement of the initial wager. Claim at BetVictor
£25 William Hill: This must be one of the most recognisable names in gambling. A latecomer to the online arena they now have a huge chunk of the interactive market because of their much-improved website. Customer service still needs to improve though. It is a waste of time using the email or messaging service. If you want a timely answer then ring them. Anyway that has nothing to do with their free bet, which at £25 is not too flash but quite acceptable. You have to enter the bonus code F25 to get it. It is a match of the amount of your first staked amount up to €/£25. William Hill
£30 Coral: Coral bookmaker match your first bet up to €/£30. You need to place that first wager on a selection that is at odds of 1/2 or bigger. You then have 28 days to use the free bet. You can place it on any sports event. There is no need for a promo code. You will be credited automatically. Coral.
