OPENING ACCOUNTSInformation On Opening Online Accounts To Get Free Bets
To start collecting your free bets you need to open online accounts with each bookmaker and/or betting exchange you wish to claim free bets from.
As well as getting free bets, its always worth opening accounts with as many bookmakers and betting exchanges as possible to get the widest range of choice and value for each of your bets. If you don't like the price on offer from one operator or the markets on offer, you can simply shop around to find another operator to improve the chances of maximising your betting profitability.
There are thousands of pounds worth of free bets waiting for you to claim. Simply click the banner(s) of your choice below.
As it's not easy to find all the free bets, we've listed the best free bets all together on this page in alphabetical order. You will find the best free bets from the best bookmakers on the Web.
Bookmakers' policies differ, sometimes you can split your free bets up, or you might have to bet it all on one event. Sometimes you have to place your free bets with odds over a stated amount.
We explain what free bets are, the different types available and how you can claim them.
Compare odds for the best returns from the comfort of your own home by opening online accounts, as the more accounts you have the more you can shop around for a better price on your bets.

Betfair Free Bets (£25 Free Bet On Opening An Account)
Betfair is by some way the world's largest betting exchange and, has over 100,000 members betting each month from all over the world.
A betting exchange is a bookie which uses technology to make sure the customer gets a better price. It does that by reducing its risk, which means it doesn't have to build in extra margin as a safety cushion. The effect is that punters bet on the price they want and not the price they're told they can have.
This means that you typically get up to 20% better odds than at a traditional bookie. This is because you are betting directly against other members so there are no bookies margins. You can back a horse, player or team to win an event, or you can play at being the bookie and accept bets from other people. In other words, it's possible to get on BOTH sides of a bet! (Please note that in order to get your free £25 Betfair bet you need to place a separate £25 stake first.) For more information on Betfair click BETFAIR
To get your £25 free bet with Betfair, click the above Betfair banner, open your account, deposit a minimum of £25 and bet through this amount and Betfair will credit your account with another £25 free bet, whether you win or lose your original stakes.
