How to Claim A Free Bet?
Each free bet will have different terms but broadly you will need to open an account with the relevant bookie to get started. After that the terms of the bonus will normally be that you have to bet deposit some of your own money and bet a certain amount, sometimes in one bet or sometimes in a series of bets. Once you have met the criteria for the bonus, you will often find that the free bet will be credited to your account within a few days.When you use the free bet to make a bet and it wins, you will normally find that the winnings will be credited to your account just like any other bet, but the original free bet stake may not be credited to you.
For example, if you had a £10 free bet winning at 2/1 then you would get the £20 winnings, but not the original £10 free bet stake. This can vary from bookie to bookie however so be sure to read the terms and conditions.
In some cases you may also find that you have to continue to bet ("turnover") a certain multiple of the free bet you are offered before you are allowed to withdraw the winnings.
For example, if you bet £20 to get a free bet of £20, and this free bet won at 2/1 giving you £40 profit (but you didnt keep your stake) If the turnover requirement is 3x then you would not be able to withdraw the £40 you won for free until you had bet at total of 3x the value of the free bet i.e. 3x£20 = £60 You can reach that total in any way though using lots of small bets etc but it is worth checking if there is any time limit over which you must make the bets.
Why Do Bookies Give Free Bets?
It may seem too good to be true, but it does actually make sense for bookies to give away free money to get people to open an account. Its actually quite a cheap method of advertising for them, and while with some people they may end up losing if the players take the money and run, they hope that some will stick around and use them some more and become a proper customer.
