Free Bets

Free bets are offered by most bookmakers as a way for them to tempt you to try their site without spending much of your own money.

Most free bets are offered on a ‘matched’ basis, meaning they the bookmaker will match your first (paid for) bet with a free bet to the same stake. For example if you open an account with Paddy Power, and place a bet of £50, they will credit your account with a £50 free bet, regardless of whether your initial bet won or lost.

Free bets are a great way to try out a new bookie too. For example you might see a great price with a bookmaker that you don’t already have an account with. Offering a free bet means that you can place the bet you were looking for, but then will also have a free bet to the same stake to use on another event/market of your choice!

At we hunt around for the best free bets and promotions so you don’t have to, and many of the free bet offers you see below aren’t available if you go to the site directly. So make sure you come back from time to time to ensure you are not missing out on any great free bet offers!

Don’t forget that some bookmakers also offer No Deposit Free Bets too – so don’t forget to check out that page too to claim a no deposit free bet.
