FAQ

How do the free bet bonuses work?

Each welcome offer varies a little, but generally there are two types of offer available to new customers:

Typical offer 1) Bet a certain amount to receive a free bet

Typical offer 2) Get a free bet bonus equal to your first deposit

In the first example, it is relatively straight forward. Let’s take Ladbrokes as an example. Currently you can receive £30 in free bets when you sign up, but to do so, you only need to bet £10. This sort of offer ideal for a punter who wants to bet more casually.

In the second example, the free bet you can earn is equal to your first deposit. This tend to attract people wanting to bet larger amounts. Something to pay attention to, is the percentage that the initial deposit is matched with.

Bet 365 at the moment will provide a 100% ‘matched deposit’ bonus up to £200. What means is that if you sign up to Bet 365, deposit £200, as soon as you’ve bet £200 (win or lose), you’ll be given a free bet balance of £200. If your first deposit is matched only 50%, this means you would need to deposit £400 to receive a £200 free bet. Basically, higher the percentage, the better. 50%-100% is the norm.

Once you’ve ‘unlocked’ a free bet balance, you can’t simply withdraw it as cash (otherwise bookmakers would be broke). Before you can withdraw it, you will need to wager it a number of times. If you have a wagering requirement of 3x, it means you need to bet the amount three times before you can withdraw it as cash.

A wagering requirement between 3x and 5x is normal.

Which is the best betting site?

There is no single way to determine which the ‘best’ betting site is, but there are some factors that can help decide which one might be better for you.

Here is a checklist of things to consider:

  1. Welcome offer – As per above, pick a welcome bonus free bet that you feel comfortable with. Some will be better suited to those looking to bet big, whilst others are for better for casual punters. Betting is meant to be fun, so don’t stretch yourself, and be responsible.
  2. Ongoing offers – Each bookmaker will have offers for existing members, plus loyalty schemes.
  3. Streaming options – Some of the betting sites allow you to stream sport, pretty much for free. If this is important to you, then Bet 365, Betfair, Paddy Power, Ladbrokes and Sky Bet will be of particular interest. You won’t be streaming Premier League action, but you do get some decent top flight foreign games.
  4. Markets – If you’re going to be betting on a range of sports and leagues, you may need to research which ones cover the markets you need. All of the betting websites will have markets for the most popular sports, and leagues, so it’s only if you’re going to be betting on an obscure league, or local dog racing event will this become relevant.
  5. Odds – Everyone wants to win as much as possible. It is challenging to know who has the best odds, because all of bookmakers boast that they have them! In one study, for football, Bet Victor were found to have the best odds. Eventually most punters tend to have several accounts, and then just place the bet with whoever has the best odds for that particular event.
  6. Interface – It again comes down to personal preference, but each of the bookmakers has a slightly difference interface. Personally we’re fans of the Bet 365 one, especially since they changed it to HTML5 in late 2016. As long as it’s not slow, and is easy to use, then it should be fine.
  7. Mobile experience – We say mobile experience versus simply app, as we don’t expect to have to download an app in order to bet. Most of the bookmakers now have responsible websites and dedicated apps. If like most people, you’ll be betting a lot on the go, load up the bookmaker’s website on your phone and take a look around.

Reading through that checklist will give you a good feel of which betting site may be more suitable for you. Truth is, if you’re going to be a casual punter, and bet on the most common sports, then chances are all of them will be suitable for you.

Finally, we’d only ever recommend signing up with a trusted, UK licensed betting site. There are plenty of new betting sites popping up all the time, but really, you wouldn’t save money in a bank you’ve never heard of, so why would you do the same with your gambling account? All of the sites we have listed on My Betting Sites are UK licensed.

Don't gamble unless you know the facts. Being responsible about gambling means knowing whether to gamble, how much money or how much time. Visit Gambleaware.co.uk for more information.
