How do free bets work

At betting sites, there are many kinds of betting offers, but a free bet sign up offer is the most common one. You often get free bets for signing up with bookmakers online.The term free bet can have many meanings and be used in many different contexts. Some use the the term free bet for all welcome bonuses offered at a bookie. However, we don’t call all sign up bonuses free bets. We make a distinction between different betting deals, that is, bonuses that match your deposit and (free) bets that are handed out to you by the bookmaker.

Free bet offers are usually given as betting signup offers to new players, but can also be credited to existing customers during special promotions.

A free bet (as we define it) is a bet the bookmaker gives to you on their expense. Free bet offers are usually given as betting signup offers to new players, but can also be credited to existing customers during special promotions.

If you should win with your free bet, you get to keep the winnings to the extent they exceed the stake. Most free bet offers won’t let you keep the the value of the free bet, although there are some exceptions. The best free bet offers let you keep your winnings without any requirements attached, but some comes with a wagering requirement.

 

Risk Free Bets

Another common type of free bets online is the a risk free bet. With this type of free bet you first have to place a bet with your own money. If you win, you get to keep all of the winnings, as you normally would. Should you lose, on the other hand, the sum of the risk free bet will be credited to your account. In effect, you are betting risk free.

The one thing you need to keep in mind though, is that your refunded stake are usually subject to a wagering requirement. You need to meet this wagering requirement prior to any withdrawals.

HOW DO I FIND THE BEST FREE BET OFFERS?

There are few different factors to take into consideration if you want to find the best free bet offers. These factors are things that are important to all sign up bonuses and sports betting offers, not only for bookies with free bet offers.

Free Bet Amount

Naturally you want as large a free bet amount as possible. This is of course an important factor when choosing a free bet offer, but all that glitters is not gold. Some of the larger free bets come with less favourable terms, such as a higher minimum odds requirement or a wagering requirement.

Wagering Requirement

For some free bets, your returned stake is credited as bonus money that needs to be be rolled-over a certain number of times prior to withdrawal. The wagering requirements for free bets tends to be rather low compared to matched deposit bonuses.

Minimum Odds

Minimum odds for a free bet can refer to a few different things. It can be the lowest odds at which you are allowed to place a bet to qualify for the free bet offer.

It can also refer to the minimum odds at which you can use your already credited free bet.

It may also refer to the minimum odds at which you have to fulfill your wagering requirement for you bonus refund. Always be thorough when looking up the terms and conditions of your free bet bonus.

Validity Period

After your account has been credited with a free bet you need to use it within a certain number of days, usually somewhere in between 7 to 30 days. If you don’t use your free bet within this period it will be forfeited.

The validity period can also refer to the the period in which you have to meet the wagering requirements. If you fail to meet the wagering requirements within this period the bonus and/or winning amounts may be forfeited.
