Free Bets are used by almost all online bookmakers these days in order to attract more customers. There’s benefit for both bookmakers and punters from free bets. While bookmakers are trying to attract more customers in stiff competition, punters benefit from this battle by getting some free money and a little help in building their bankrolls.
Most of these Free Bets have strict rules, and in order to benefit from bookmakers’ offers, you have to be smart and careful. If you’re a punter, you know that bookmaker is your enemy, but if you’re playing by their rules, you can take advantage of their offers.
Pay attention to all the terms and conditions when opening account with an online bookmaker, from details such as your country of residence (not residents of all the countries are eligible for all bookmakers’ promotions), payment methods (some payment methods also could be ineligible for a free bet, for example Moneybookers in some cases) to details such as minimum odds, sport or bet type (in some cases you could miss on your free bet if you placed your bet at odds of 1.75 and your bookmaker clearly stated in their T&C that qualifying bet must be at least 2.0, etc).
You can get much more from your online betting by getting free bets from online bookmakers. Be smart and careful, and you can boost your betting bankroll easily with few hundreds or even thousands of pounds in Free Bets when you open accounts at several online bookmakers.
