What is a Free Bet?
Free bets are bonuses that you can use to place a bet. You can place the bet in part or full, up to the total value of the bonus you received.
The difference between a free bet and a regular bet is that you don’t contribute the stake yourself. So the stake won’t be refunded to you along with your winnings if the bet wins.
How to claim a Free Bet?
The most common promotions are of course for new customers. Usually, you qualify for a free bet when you first open a new account with a bookmaker. Depending on the offer, you might receive the free bet bonus with or without a deposit. You might also have to introduce a special code in order to activate the offer.
Frequently, bookmakers give free bonuses as a reward to loyal players as well.
You should always read the bonus terms and conditions before you accept the bet and start playing. Usually, the betting offer comes with certain requirements on the markets and betting odds where you can use your freebie. If you don’t use the bonus correctly your bet might be voided or you can lose the amount you won. This applies to all kinds of bonuses both in sportsbook and casino.
Also, note that if you are playing at a mixed online betting site, you might receive an offer for sports betting and for casino games. Usually, you should choose only one of the offers and they cannot be combined. Before you make your deposit, make sure to check the requirements of the betting site.
