If you are new to sports betting then you may not be aware that most of the online bookies offer free bets to lure you into betting with them. This is great news for you as it means you can protect your bets and have more chances of winning. This guide has been written to highlight the five best free bets available with bookies.

Bet 365

1. Visit the Bet 365 home page and register for a new account.
2 Deposit a certain amount using any of the permitted methods and place your first bet of £5 or more and you will be eligible for a free matched bet worth up to £25.
3. You will now be sent an email containing a reference number which must be entered on the bet slip and verified.
4. After placing your first free bet, place the next 5 qualifying bets of £5 or more, and you will be eligible for a second free bet with Bet 365, of the same value as your smallest qualifying bet, up to a maximum of £25
. 5. You can repeat this process until you receive four free bets worth up to £100.

Fred’s bet

If you’re looking for something a little easier to follow than what Bet 365 has to offer, then check out Bet Fred. You can get a free £50 bet directly with them and all you have to do is bet £50 at even or greater odds. Once you have placed an eligible bet, your account will be credited with the free bet.

Victor Chandler

Victor Chandler also has a free £50 bet you can take advantage of. Just open an account with VC and place a bet of £5 and you will be awarded a free match bet of up to the same value. The minimum chance that a qualifying bet must be placed is 2.0 so keep this in mind otherwise you may not receive the bonus.

Paddy Energy

At Paddy Power you will find some of the best cashback offers available from any of the bookmakers. They also have one of the best sign-up bonuses as you only have to bet £10 yourself to qualify for the £20 free.


If you follow football then you will probably see BWIN bookies advertised quite a lot. They are kit sponsors of Real Madrid and Bayern Munich and have built an excellent reputation due to their great odds. If you join BWIN today and place a bet with them you will get a free bet of the same value up to £30.

So there you have it – if you are looking to place a sports bet then you could do a lot worse than checking out the free offers available through the bookies discussed.
