New to free bets?
If you've never heard of a free bet before or are just looking for a quick refresh, here's a little guide to the most common questions that get asked.
What are free bets?
Free bets are bets that you can place without incurring a cost. Don’t be fooled though, that doesn’t mean you won’t have to hand over some cash to be able access the free bet. The idea generally is that if you deposit a certain amount, you can do what you like with that money as long as you wager it, then you will be credited with the elusive free bet. As such, that means what you get is a freebie, but a freebie that is usually earned by depositing some money.
It used to be a case that free bets with no deposit (true free bets, if you will) were the norm but unfortunately that’s not the case anymore. It’s more likely that the free bet you get is actually more of an offer than a true free bet.
What is the best free bet offer?
We regularly find, try and test new offers to be able to offer you a selection of what we think are the best value and most fun free bets. You’ll notice that we don’t list all of the promotions available out there as in all honesty some of them have really complicated or what we consider unfair requirements. Each month our homepage tables will be filled with the best deals of that month and you will find other offers around our site that we have reviewed previously.
It’s important to us that offers are kept fresh and that we only recommend things that someone at FreeBetsGB has tried and tested themselves.
Can you make money with free bets?
Theoretically yes, but there are various conditions that must be adhered to first. Conditions include wagering requirements, minimum deposits and odds, only betting on specified sports/games and even time limits that you need to use your bets within. Each bookie has different conditions you have to meet to be able to get real cash out of your free bet which you can see in the various tables on this page. We have created our tables so that you can sort each column by high to low or low to high, so you can find whichever free bet has the highest or lowest offer or requirements.
How should I use my free bet?
To be honest we think online gambling should only ever be used as a bit of fun so suggest you use it on something you enjoy, like betting on your favourite sports team or having a hand of black jack. Alternatively, you could use your free bet as a relatively low risk way of trying out something new – so if you are usually a sports bettor, you could have a look at the casino instead. Bare in mind that lots of offers can only be used in one category.
What’s the difference between free bets and bet credits?
The term free bets itself is a little misleading as you rarely get anything that is truly for free. Bet credits are what a lot of bookies are now choosing to call free bets in an effort to be more transparent. You can get bet credits in lots of ways, sometimes just by signing up to a new bookie or depositing and wagering a certain amount. They work similarly to free bets in that there will be specific conditions you will need to meet before actually being able to win and withdraw real money.
