Betfred regularly offer second place money back offers for major British TV competitions. These include X-Factor, Strictly Come Dancing, Big Brother and many more.

Money back usually to £25, as a free bet, if your outright pre-tournament bet finishes runner up. When available you will see the specific offer in the latest offers above..

BetVictor – Linked Casino/Sports Offers

If you are a fan of both playing games and betting online then it can pay to do both in the same place. BetVictor are very good at giving customers linked product offers.

Many of these deals will be personalised and sent to you by email but could be something like “play £10 on a certain slot get a £10 free bet” or even the converse “Bet £10 on a certain match get £10 casino bonus.

Best Novelty & Special Bet Bookmakers Sites

For offers surrounding novelty markets there is no better betting site than Betfred. If you bet on TV shows especially then you need look no further. Great range too.
For the truly outrageous markets you have to bet with Paddy Power. Famously always getting into trouble for offering controversial bets and markets that many punters love.
Not great for novelty bets but the best around for special bets that link casino and sports products. Punters who like to bet on casino games and sports markets will find a happy home.
Betway are a little unusual and may surprise you with both their market depth and some of the lines they provide. You will often find a bet not available elsewhere.
For the bigger novelty bets, such as who will win the final of X-factor or the general election, then Coral have by far the best price boosts and enhanced odds.
You can never forget about Hill’s. Their sheer size means that although they are not a novelty specialist they still have an absolutely vast array of markets available.
The Betfair exchange means if there is a novelty or special bet you can’t find then you can lay the opposite outcome in the exchange and become your own bookie.
Similar to William Hill, Ladbrokes are vast in terms of markets offered. Always worth a look to see what bets they have. Laddies have excellent price enhancements too.
For more serious special markets, things like politics, award winners and sports specials, there is no one who can beat the depth of market and odds prices of 10Bet.
