There is a well-known saying which states that “The best things in life are free”. Of course, we do not have to pay a cent for the sun, love, air, beautiful forests, friendship or breathtaking landscapes, all these are given to us by life free of charge. Let’s be honest and admit it, everybody likes receiving free stuff. A good perfume as a present for your birthday, getting a free ride to work instead of buying a bus ticket, happy hour offers given by a local internet cafe, or in a nice hotel. Such free offers can make someone happy!
Having this in mind, the bookmakers have developed a system of free bets for their customers. As an innovative marketing strategy, most online bookmakers offer “free deals” to motivate clients to bet online instead of using traditional methods like casinos or street betting shops. Such deals are usually given to newcomers that are about to open an online account.
A quick definition of free bets
A free bet is a bonus that a bookmaker will pay on your account when you sign up and deposit some specific amount of money. For example, if a bookmaker is offering a €150 deposit bonus this means that if you open a new account and deposit on his website, you will get an additional amount of money on your account. This is the same money value you have deposited up to €150.
The free deals are usually attached to sporting events taking place, in order to attract more customers. Always get familiar with the terms and conditions that such free deals offer, as such free bets may be given for some particular period of time to be used (for example they may last usually around 30 days). All big bookmakers such as Ladbrokes, Bet365, Betfred, Betfair or Bet-at-home offer free betting opportunities and much more.
Types of free bets
Free bets usually come in various forms like free bet vouchers, codes and tokens or no deposit free bets.
– Free bet vouchers or coupons are given in the free bet voucher code section. Once requested your account is credited with a free bet and you are able to start your betting adventure. These vouchers may come with a given code that you will have to insert in the system. Bet365, Betfair, Betfred offer such vouchers.
– Free bet code and tokens – promotional codes are given both to new and old clients in order for them to access special offers. Example: Ladbrokes gives an offer that if you can get up to 50 pounds, when you sign up and with a given promo code F50 on the registration page. Such a bet is valid for 7 days to use in any sports discipline.
– No deposit free bets- not used as often by bookmakers. These bets do not require you to make any deposit of money at all.
