How to Get the Most Value out of a Sign-Up Free Bet

Read our reviews – Our online bookmaker reviews detail all the important terms and conditions of sign up deals as well telling you a little about the operator including regular promos, markets and history. See our sister site using the link above for detailed betting site guides by bookie and sport.

Deposit the correct amount – Some free bets and most bonuses match your first deposit rather than your first bet. To make sure you get the offer you want make sure you deposit the correct amount of cash. For example with a 100% matched deposit bonus up to £200 you will need to make a first deposit of £200 to claim the full amount. If you don’t want to deposit this much however the bookie will still match your deposit 100% on amounts as little as £10 upwards. You can only claim the offer once however so consider this in advance.

Bet the right amount – Most free bets and some bonuses match your first bet irrespective of how much you deposit. For example BetVictor’s matched first bet bonus up to £25 requires you to place a first stake of £25 to claim the full bonus, if you stake £10 you will get a £10 bonus. Even if you deposit £25 in this instance but were to place a £10 then a £15 bet the bonus will only be awarded based on your first wager.

Add the maximum value to your bet – When taking up a sign up bonus this is effectively free money, if you bet at low odds you will get a lower payout however if you back a donkey at 1000/1 your unlikely to win! Free bet stakes are generally not returned so consider betting on prices with moderate odds to still give yourself a good payout but still with a chance of winning.

Only place the bet you want to – When you register and bet make sure you are betting on the markets and lines you want to. Don’t just throw your free promo away, use it wisely. Most promos are valid for at least 7 days so there is no massive rush to use the offer.

Try out several betting sites – Introductory deals are there so you can get a feel for the bookie and find the right betting site for you. Sign up to several betting sites using the links in the above table, this will help you find your perfect bookmaker and at the same time add tons of value to your bets through welcome bonuses. By having a portfolio of bookmakers you will also be able to add better value to your bets week to week by exploiting the best odds and event specific offers.

Restrictions – Make sure you understand any restrictions on the promotion, such as minimum odds requirements, validity and rollovers. We discuss these in more detail here.

Welcome Bonus & Free Bet Restrictions to look out for

Minimum Odds – Sign up deals that award freebets and bonuses based on your first wager or deposit will require you to place your first bet(s) at minimum odds. These are generally quite low and always at most evens (2.0 in decimal) or lower. If you wager at a price lower than this you may contravene the terms of the offer and lose your freebie or bonus. If you are awarded promotion cash you may also need to wager this a higher than a given price to meet any rollover requirement.

Rollover Requirements – When you receive a bonus it is possible to withdraw both the bonus and any winnings once you rollover the promo cash several times. Rollover simply means betting the bonus amount a number of times over. For example when you take advantage of the a 100% matched deposit deal where you need to wager both your deposit and bonus three times at minimum odds of 1/2 (1.50). In this example if you deposit £100 you will get a £100 bonus, if you then wager £600 in total stakes within a given number of days at those minimum odds or higher you will be able to withdraw any bonus cash and any winnings. If you wager your bonus cash at lower odds you can still win but it just won’t count towards the rollover.

Validity – Free bets and promo cash usually have an expiry time. Taking the above example, you have 90 days to complete the rollover requirements. Many free tokens however are valid for between 7 and 30 days depending on the bookie. Please don’t miss your freebie this way. Expiry’s are all detailed in our betting site reviews so take a quick look or have a glance at the offer terms and conditions so you know your expiry limits.

Markets / Bet Types – Some markets and bet types may not be included in the deal, again please check first. For example it is quite common for introductory deals to apply to single bet markets so if you place a full cover bet such as a Lucky 15 it may not count towards the requirements. It is also very rare for pari-mutual bets such as tote and totepool to count towards these deals.

Funding Restrictions – You may not be able to claim a bonus if you deposit using certain payment options. For example it is quite common for welcome offers to be restricted when depositing by Skrill (moneybookers) and Neteller. This is not always the case but make sure you check in advance. See our reviews and our sister site ( payment options section for full details of funding mechanism offer restrictions.

What Can I Do If I Miss Out On My Free Bet Or Bonus?

Contact The Bookmaker – In general bookies are quite understanding if you fail to get your free token due to a genuine mistake. For example if your free token expired before you could use it. Contact them by email, phone or live chat and explain what went wrong an invariably they will re-ward your sign up deal.   One of the major reasons bookies give these offers is to allow you to try them out in the first place so it is very much in their interest to re-issue any lost or unused tokens.
