Free bets, bonus codes, bookie welcome offers and betting credits

Free bets are the perfect way to get started with a new bookmaker. You’re literally getting something for nothing, with the chance to turn a free bet offer into real profit. It’s a good idea to have a number of online accounts if you like to bet on sports, as different bookmakers offer different odds.

By having a range of accounts to choose from, you can look for the best odds to make sure you’re getting the best value. Turn your welcome bonus into profit with a successful first bet, and your account’s off to a great start.

We’re constantly looking for the best free bets and welcome bonuses out there, helping to make your money go further. If you’re looking for some advice on whether the bookie you’re interested in is going to be the right fit for you, don’t miss our bookmaker reviews.

And keep checking back for the latest free bets, bookie welcome offers, betting credits and bonus codes.

What are the most popular free bets?

Matched deposit bet

Also known as deposit bonus offers, a matched deposit bet is where the bookmaker gives you a free bet when you make your first deposit. For instance, you’ll get £10 in free bets if you sign up with a bookie offering a £10 matched deposit bonus. Some bookmakers offer even bigger incentives. William Hill are currently giving you £30 in free bets when you open an account and bet £10. So that’s effectively a 300% deposit bonus offer.

No deposit free bet

This kind of welcome offer is quite rare, although you can still sometimes find them. The bookmaker is effectively making your first deposit for you, so there’s no risk with your first bet. It’s likely there will be conditions placed on the free bet, such as wagering requirements or when the bet can be used, but free bet no deposit offers can be a great way to try out a new bookmaker.

Risk-free bet

Another good way to test out a new bookmaker, and give yourself two chances of winning at the same time, is with a no risk bet. If the first bet you place with an online bookie loses, then you’ll get your stake back as a free bet. There’ll be a limit on how much you can get back, so your welcome offer might be for a £10 risk-free bet.

Enhanced odds offer

Bookmakers often advertise enhanced odds offers for new customers before big sporting events or key matches. For example, you might get enhanced odds of 40/1 on Anthony Joshua winning his next fight, or 35/1 on a goal being scored in the Champions League final. The maximum stake will usually be £1, with your winnings paid in free bets. Bookies may also offer enhanced odds to existing customers, paying the profits above the original price in free bets.
